Alchemy of habit and success

Thanks to (evil) habit, we do not even settle for certain things. For example, also tooth brushing, tying, licking nails, driving. It’s somehow automatic, subversive.

Thirty-four-year-old Lisa Allen began to smoke and drink at sixteen. She spent most of her life fighting overweight. She did not last for a year and began pursuing her with the ten-thousand-dollar enforcers. Today, this woman is a slender, energetic person with incredible fitness, employed in a graphic studio. This is just one of many examples that the author says in Sila’s habit. Will Lisa be thankful for such a change? The answer is simple! She changed her habits.
The habits for us at the first minute may be of negligible importance. Over time, however, they reflect on our health, performance and success.


Author of Sila Habit, Charles Duhigg has long been studying habits. He writes that if we understand how customs work, we can very easily change them and use them for our own benefit.

If you ever thought about what makes you what you are, this yellow book will give you a clear answer. According to Duhigg, it’s the habits! The good news is that they can change. She’s a bad guy that there’s no universal recipe for it.

Duhigg argues that all good and bad habits have the same mechanism of operation: “At first there is an excuse that the brain says should switch to the automatic mode that it’s supposed to do. Then follows the routine – physical, mental, emotional. Finally, there is a reward that will save the process in the brain. Gradually, this loop – an incentive, a routine, a reward – becomes more and more automatic. “

This bestseller is a compelling narrative based on many scientific insights. It brings a whole new perspective to our life that is full of customs. The author discusses in detail when and why the human brain bases routines on how to help or at least partially defend it. The book is not a manual or a cook for a better life. Rather, it’s like learning how we can form and shape our lives.
