A habit is a routine of behaviour that is repeated regularly and tends to occur subconsciously. It’s something that you do often and regularly, sometimes without knowing that you are doing it.
Habit, in psychology, is any regularly repeated behaviour that requires little or no thought and is learned rather than innate. A habit—which can be part of any activity, ranging from eating and sleeping to thinking and reacting—is developed through reinforcement and repetition.
According to Aristotle“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.”
Habit is formed as a result of repeated act. People who study human behavior tell us that if you continue to repeat an act for six weeks, you will form a habit. If you exercise that habit long enough, a stronghold will be established. It becomes a routine of behaviour that is regularly repeated and tends to occur subconsciously because a stronghold has been established.
Research has also shown that it takes 31 days of conscious effort to make or break a habit. That means, if one practices something consistently for 31 days, on the 32nd day it does become a habit. Information has been internalized into behavioural change, which is called transformation. -Shiv Khera

Just one more push is needed. According to George Washington Carver. Ninety-percent of failure comes from people who have the habit of making excuses.
