Amazing!!! Most people seem to have a fear of failure… The amazing thing here is: How are you going to learn new stuff if you are perfect? When we make a mistake, when we fail to achieve something, we learn, we develop our thinking muscle and start generating new ideas, new approaches, new processes, new… In short, we develop the muscle to innovate and to improve our life. Welcome the experiences when things went in a different direction than planned. These experiences will make you better.
We all have positive and negative tendencies in our behaviour. We can always achieve a lot more when we surround ourselves with people that will allow us to take advantage of our good tendencies and help us keep our negative tendencies in check. For this team to be effective and sustainable, all team members do the same with each other. • What are your strengths? • What are your negative tendencies? • Who are the people in your team?
The people behind all success stories were people looking for change and willing to change. Once they found it, they took it as an opportunity and they made use of it. What changes are you making to transform your opportunity into a reality?
Most people want to succeed at something, while at the same time fear the changes they must do to succeed. You and only you can make the changes you need to achieve your success! The secret to achieve your success involves: 1. Be willing to fail and learn from it to try again and again until done. 2. Be willing let go our ego, stop mocking around and stop giving ourselves excuses to avoid doing it. 3. Be willing to change yourself, to become what you want to be. We always have options. Instead of problem, look at the challenge. How about focusing on what you can do and doing it?
Many people tend to focus on all the reasons why success has been out of reach for them. I believe it is much easier to achieve your own definition of success by focusing on the things you can do; however small they may be. One step, one task, one small goal after other will get you to your own success as you want it. Persistence, determination and the wiliness to learn from the things that don’t work will make success a reality. What is your next step toward your success?
Work Life Balance? A current popular trend refers to reaching a balance between life and work. Most agree on the need for the balance. However, there are too many difference on what work-life balance means to reach a consensus on how to achieve it. In one hand, work is part of life, so I am not sure the term “work-life” is the most appropriate one. That said, I will refer to Tony Robbins’ definition of the “6 Core Human Needs” (full article at http://www.habitsforwellbeing.com/6-core-human-needs-by-anthony-robbins/), where he talks about the need of each one of us to have a certain level of certainty and variety, significance and love & connection, and growth and contribution in our life. Most of what we do in life is about meeting all these needs and maintaining the balance within each pair. Each one of us requires a unique balance within each pair of the six core needs and when we have that balance, we feel fulfilled and happy. Some people needs lots of variety, while others want more certainty. Same thing applies to the other two pairs. Back to the balanced life, while some people will need more of the variety and challenges found at work, others will need and want more of the safety, security and certainty they get at home with their families. While some will want more of the feeling of significance and importance, others will want more the love and connection with other people. In addition, there are resourceful and un-resourceful ways to meet each one of these needs and therefore […]
