The Chinese word 养成 means to cultivate or develop a habit or behavior. It is often used in the context of personal growth and self-improvement, and can refer to both positive and negative habits. For example, one might say “我正在养成每天早起的习惯” which means “I am developing the habit of waking up early every day”. Alternatively, one might say “他养成了抽烟的习惯” which means “He has developed the habit of smoking”.
