The Power of Habit
The power of habit is very strong and unflinching. It is truly said that habit is our second nature. Old habits die hard, they live and die with us.
Habits are both good and bad. Good habits are an ornament and the bad are a curse. Rising early, speaking the truth, honesty and good-will are among the good habits. They make us shine in our performance, form a good reputation for us and show us the face of success in every field of life. Bad habits like smoking, drinking and gambling give us a timely pleasure but ruin us in the long run. They earn us a bad name and put us in trouble.
It is the duty of teachers and parents to inculcate good habits in their wards so that they become respectable citizens of tomorrow and make the nation healthy and strong. The students who get up early in the morning, go out for a morning walk, attend school in time, respect their elders, do not mix up in bad company are an asset for their schools and homes. In them lies the secure future of tomorrow. They are courteous, gentle, God-fearing noble and sympathetic. They pass all the tests of life gracefully. Their results are wonderful. These good things done again and again becomes their habit and they prove most successful in their lives.
Youths have to guard their character by not falling prey to bad habits which they are sometimes tempted to. There are elements around who benefit themselves by puffing youths into bad activities as the age is vulnerable for such impacts. Good students keep themselves away from such people and warn others also to desist from such actions which are ready to trap them in.
