For you have already mastered your old practice, you know everything there is to know on that topic. So it is simple and comfortable with the old. But what one must ponder is, has it been successful doing it in those ways? Recognizing if your habit serves you or not is an important step. Work on a new habit that you would like to form.

Much Determined Success to You,
