What is one habit that has helped you succeed?

Show up every day. Showing up means just starting. When you show up, you show intent. You do the hardest part: you start. Because starting anything new, going from 0 to 1 can be incredibly difficult, you need to show up consistently, every day, for weeks, months or even years.
