Have you ever thought to yourself that there aren’t enough hours in the day, or felt overwhelmed at the tasks facing you? If you have, this article can help you!
Clarify your goals and strategy- Be very clear about your aims and ambitions, both short and long term. Write them down. Once you know what you really want to achieve (and why) it’s easier to make decisions about what needs doing and to plan accordingly.
Focus on your top priorities- You’ll be more productive and profitable if you identify and focus on the areas most important to your business. Work on the fundamentals first. The Latin word ‘fundamentum’ means foundation – so take action, build strong foundations and the rest should follow.
Schedule time- Literally write an appointment in your work planner (you do have one of those, don’t you?) to set aside a realistic block of time for your priority actions. This reduces anxiety over not having enough time and keeps you...
Hurtful memories can stifle your development and growth. How do we break through this insidious mental conditioning? How do we grow and develop beyond hurtful episodes that bury themselves in our subconscious and influence our lives? How do we change and grow so that we can live our dreams?
The first step is to break the hold of these inhibiting influences from the past. Recognize them and then either get rid of them or turn them into a positive force that pushes you ahead rather than holds you back. Identify these inhibiting memories in your life so that you control them rather than allowing them to control you. Did someone hurt your feelings? Forgive them and forget it. Move on. Did someone punish you unfairly? It’s over. It’s done. Go on.
Here are a few of the most common emotions that burrow into the subconscious and impede our growth as individuals:
Anger: This is a natural response to a perceived attack or injury. It makes energy flow. But when...
Most people get confused by what being a high performer or becoming a superhuman version of one means.
They feel it's either unreal or out of their reach.
In Reality, it is very simple. Not Easy But Simple.
1. GET RID OF THINGS THAT ARE HOLDING YOU BACK. You would be amazed how much damage stress and constant unnecessary thinking are doing to your ability to perform better. Think about this. Have you ever seen a child lacking energy or motivation?
2. BE HAPPY. Research has proved again and again that Happy people perform better. And happiness is not a result of our circumstances but a result of our thinking.
3. BE PRESENT. Past is changed in the now. Future is created in the now. Yet most people use theirs now in the memories of their past or imagination of their future.
4. MANAGE YOURSELF. We all get 24 hours in a day. The people who get more done do not manage their time, they manage themselves. It's not about how much time you are spending on activities, it's about what activities are...
Fat is not fattening (Hard to believe! I don’t blame you)
For decades we have been told fat is bad. It is no wonder as a lot of research (sponsored by big food companies) has reiterated that ‘reduce your calories to reduce your weight’. This approach may work if you starved yourselves. However, it will also deprive your body of essential nutrients and will make you feel fatigued all the time. Our body burns carbohydrates very quickly, which means if we ate a carbohydrate-rich diet, we will feel hungry more often (good for food businesses but not so good for our body). Also, if the body gets all the energy it needs from the carbohydrates we eat, it will keep storing the fat and will never go in ‘fat-burning mode’.
As most of you will be aware that many of our body’s functions are dependent on hormones. For the body to start burning fat for energy we must have lower levels of insulin. Eating carbohydrates increases the insulin levels in our...
