In brief: Do it over and over!
Behaviors become habits if they routinely happen after much repetition.
Habits are behaviors that occur with little deliberate decision making. Bad ones are hard to break and new habits are hard to establish. But with concerted effort one can do both. Given the power of habit, it pays to take inventory of them and decide which to keep and which to break. Good habits can help a person succeed.
