Are you having trouble breaking bad habits and forming new ones?

Are you having trouble breaking bad habits and forming new ones?

Our ability to succeed in anything we do today (in health, career, life or self-development) hinges on developing good habits and getting rid of bad ones.

We live busy lives, and we're bombarded by distractions and temptations, any of which can seriously derail our focus.

In this post, I talked about 2 techniques I've found to be extremely powerful at achieving two things:
1. Breaking a bad habit
2. Developing a long-lasting positive habit

Top 5 reasons for feeling tired all the time – Part 1: physiology

Top 5 reasons for feeling tired all the time – Part 1: physiology

Do you ever feel like you’re having to force yourself to get out of the bed in the morning?
Do you struggle to maintain energy levels throughout the day and find it hard to get work done in the afternoon?
Do you feel so tired when getting to the bed that you can’t actually fall asleep?
 
You’re not the only one. “Chronic fatigue” is a very common problem affecting millions of people, and especially those seeking to achieve a lot in life.
 
Reasons for “chronic fatigue” can be classified as physiological (physical) and psychological (mental).
 
In this post (Part 1) I’ll address the Physiological (physical) aspects. In Part 2, I’ll discuss Psychological aspects.

Fears and Desires

There are 2 types of people:

Those whose DESIRES are bigger than their FEARS.

Those whose FEARS are bigger than their DESIRES, paralyzing them.

Your state of mind determines where you belong.

I see so many extremely talented people paralyzed and unable to achieve even 50% of their potential.

Some are potential entrepreneurs with amazing ideas, some are junior or mid-level executives at large companies and they have the potential to step out of others' shadows and carve their own path. One thing stops them: FEAR.

And as much as I love old Chinese movies, "facing your fears" isn't exactly a practical solution.

Sure, it may work for certain superficial fears (heights, spiders, monsters under the bed), but you can't just "decide to face your fear of failure".

The only weapon against FEAR is DESIRE.

The only thing more powerful than your FEARS are your DREAMS.

When you make your dream bigger than your fear: you write it down, describe in minute detail, imagine yourself "living that dream", visualizing it every day, several times a day: you're FEEDING your dreams instead of your fears.

You're making your dreams and desires so big, your hunger for them so strong, that fear just shrinks in comparison, and you won't even think about it twice.

You'll just jump in with both feet and make things happen, make your dream happen, make your DESIRES a REALITY.

This one thing Vegans and Paleo People do can change your approach to everything in life.
 
I like many things about both approaches to eating (and I also don’t agree with a lot of things in both).
 
But that’s not really relevant or why I bring this up.
 
Both diets are based on powerful habit-forming psychological tools which you can apply to all areas of your life.

The most important list every high performer should write today

The most important list every high performer should write today

“Now what?” is a question that haunts every single high performing individual I’ve ever met or read about. 

You put your heart and soul into achieving something, and once you do, there is general feeling of emptiness – a void has been left where that challenge was. 

You feel restless, anxious, irritable, and sometimes depressed. 

Don’t let this happen to you. There is something you can do about it.

If you work with people, you need to be aware of this

Employee frustrations arising from their boss’ behavior are common problems.
 
Yet many of those employees are team leaders themselves, and while they may be right in criticizing the management style of their boss, chances are that they’re not the ideal team leaders either.
 
I’ve observed CEOs and executives throughout my career, and have come to realize that there are 3 clear types of “team leaders” at any level.
 
Do you know which type you are and what to do about it? Read on to learn more.

Dreams and regrets

Dreams and regrets

Every year on 31st December, millions of us look back at our year looking for something we accomplished and which makes us proud. 

Often times, we realize that it’s been “just another year”, with the usual ups and downs, the occasional challenge or small achievement, but nothing really substantial, nothing that makes us feel that we’ve grown as a human being. 

It’s time to change all of that.

Stop burning your fingers!

Stop burning your fingers!

“Old school” says: the only way to learn is by your failures.
 
“New school” says: the optimal way to learn is from other people’s failures! Why? Because today’s world is so fast-paced that while you’re still learning from your failures, someone has copied your idea, learned from YOUR failures, and is now running with it!
 
Which one would you rather be?

You'll never get what you want...

You'll never get what you want...

You'll never get what you want... 
 
... but you will get what you NEED!
 
And what if you could transform what you WANT to something that you NEED?!
 
We sometimes get frustrated when we pursue our goals because we confuse a “want” with a “need”. Guess what: no matter how hard you try, you can never really give yourself fully to something you “just want”. You have to really “need” something (at your core) to generate enough drive, commitment and energy to accomplish it.
