If you show up every day consistently you build trust.
Trust builds friendships/relationships.

Some go their whole lives without considering the fact that they can construct their own positive habits, or never succeed in breaking the habits that drag them down.
There is no shortcut to mastering your habits, since it's always going to take discipline and hard work,  but there is one principle that can guide you to a greater success rate: the idea that habits are grounded in consistency.
