According to British writer James Allen, pioneer of the self-help movement: as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. I think this statement is not far from reality. Look around and ask yourself: What you have, what you do, what you are until today, is the product of your thoughts? The answer to this question is probably different for each of us.
However, in my experience, having a positive mindset or as we usually say, good thinking, has a great influence on everything we do and achieve. How are you using your thinking?
Perhaps you have bought a product through the internet which turned out to be poor or average quality and you had to spend extra time and money returning it. It’s almost certain that if this happened to you, you wouldn’t buy this product again or recommend it to someone else.
If we mention what is “average” the list is long. For example services, companies, projects, relationships, and all the things that are not done with excellence. If people have the ability to achieve a high level of excellence, why do many fail?
Have you ever wondered why you are very successful in some areas and not in others? Some people are more successful in their professional lives but not in their personal lives. This is also true for those who consider they have a successful personal life but have financial challenges.
There are several reasons why people are not successful in all areas of their lives. One of these reasons is because they have not been motivated and directed towards developing their full potential. On the other hand, over time they acquire values and opinions that unfortunately become self-limiting beliefs, and that leads them to make incorrect decisions.
In this time called the “new normal”, it is not difficult to understand that massive changes are taking place at the personal and business level. As a result, the health crisis we are facing has led many to leave the status quo behind.
A clear example is a workforce that has to demonstrate their ability to adapt by working in varied environments. For some, it is a mandatory situation, but for others, it is part of the intelligent risks that every leader must take.
The tension that changes produce is a challenge for many. People would like the change to notify its arrival, or better that it did not arrive. Unfortunately, this is not the case, change is constant in our lives, and those who do not recognize it live under great stress.
Tension has great benefits, but unfortunately, there are few who want to be under tension. A large number of people are willing to settle for an average life. Furthermore, many opportunities, dreams, and goals are not fulfilled because people do not want to be under stress.
Due to the global crisis caused by COVID-19, that many believe is unprecedented, numerous changes have been observed. All those changes in such a short period of time, that for many of us, especially the new generations, have not been seen before
Many of these changes have been established at official levels; others of these changes have been decisions taken individually. What changes did you have to accept? What changes were your own decisions?
During the last months, due to COVID-19 global crisis, maintaining a realistic thinking has been one of the greatest challenges we have faced. After six (6) months or more of the first statements about this virus, there is still a high level of uncertainty.
I agree with the American businessman Max DePree, “the first responsibility of a leader is to define reality” however, during these times of crisis, how can we do that?
Healthy relationships with others are indispensable in many ways when you are building a successful team, finding new partners, growing a business, or keeping up with family and friends. In reality, no one can accomplish anything of significance on their own, as we do not possess all the talents, strengths, and capabilities. However, in order to have great relationships with others, we need to have a healthy relationship with ourselves.
Let’s examine why is important to have a healthy relationship with ourselves and how you can work on your own image and getting to know yourself better.
It is a truth that nobody can achieve something significant alone. Lonely heroes only exist in Hollywood movies and it’s just a myth. People, in general, are brilliant, some in their ideas, others in their talents, in their capacities and strengths but no one can say that they know everything or can do everything. Success is designed to be achieved by a group of people.
If you want to achieve something significant in your life and use your talents, abilities, and strengths, let’s discuss how relationships will take you to your next best step.
Increasing your productivity to the point that you are more efficient and effective in achieving your goals with the least amount of resources is what we all strive for. For many years it’s been demonstrated by the science of achievement that goal achievement is only possible when focusing on the correct habits.
In this blog, we will go through 4 effective steps that will allow you to turn the “force of habit” in your favor and not against you.
