Our thoughts are so subtle, and often subconscious, but the thought you choose will either serve you or not.
Not failing isn’t the goal. In fact, failing is the second-best goal after success. Not making decisions, not taking action – those aren’t the goals!
Very often leaders will come to me asking how they can help their employees to grow. They want their employees to be more proactive.
We all stop ourselves from the progress we want with thoughts of “I don’t know what to do” or “I don’t know what I should do” or “I don’t know what to do next”.
The only reason you “don’t know what to do” is because you haven’t decided.
The core reason why reminding ourselves about our progress is so important is because of how it makes us feel.
Seeking A+ work is not a determinant of success. But if we embrace B- working we can increase productivity, output and learning.
If you had, in a PAST moment, scheduled on your calendar to punch yourself in the face, and then realised that actually you don’t want to punch yourself in the face, will you continue with that commitment?
You know that result you want to create, that habit you want to instil, that change you want to make in your work or life?
Are you committed to it or just interested in it?
In relationships, 25% more negative comments most likely leads to divorce.
But what’s the percentage of negative self-talk in your head? Or are you on the way to a mental break-up?
Taking a break is not a luxury you earn when you’ve achieved something.
It’s a strategy that’s incorporated into HOW you achieve anything.
