The 80% is the will, the mindset, the attitude, and the proper application of your power to decide that in no uncertain terms you're going to do this and that failure is NOT an option.
This is NOT a challenge of figuring out the right habits. Without the right use of power, your habits and practices will get you nowhere. You'll give up.
The people who've posted thus far don't stand a chance of making it yet, not because they don't know the right methods and techniques and habits... but because they aren't properly using their POWER yet.
You see... I would NEVER make posts like the OP did when I was working on this goal. It's a misuse of power to do so. You're putting the goal on a pedestal, imagining it as something bigger than you, something daunting.
You cannot do that if you wish to make it a reality. If it's going to be part of your reality, it has to be smaller than you. Your power must overwhelm it. The goal has no chance but to succumb to you. You're going to absolutely, positively kick its ass. There can be no doubt about that.
To quote Yoda, "There is no try." If you have an attitude of trying or attempting or doing your best, you've already failed. Either you're going to do it, or you aren't. And all I see here is people who aren't going to do it.
If you're going to do it, you cannot allow doubt to take up residence within you. It is NOT a welcome guest. Never entertain thoughts of doubt. Never question your ability to do it. Just create the knowing that you're going to do it no matter what and that there are no other options. It's a done deal before you start. It's as straightforward as making a meal.
You may not know all the right recipes in advance, but you'll figure them out. You're a chef who's confident in your ability to cook. You know that a new set of recipes isn't enough to throw you off. You'll learn what you need to learn and do what you need to do when the time comes.
This is 80% of it -- using your power to create your reality. Sometimes it seems like it's 99% of it.
The habits are just the light saber. A light saber in the hands of a non-Jedi against a Jedi with a light saber? Who wins? The Jedi mind-grabs the light saber, and the other person is sliced in half in 1 second.
Thinking that habits will make you succeed is like thinking that a light saber will make you a Jedi. That's backwards. The light saber will pretty much fall into your hands when you're a Jedi. The habits will pretty much take care of themselves when you're using your power correctly.
Don't even fuss over the habits. They aren't the droids you're looking for!
In fact, it's so well done, I had to Evernote it.
