Great lives don’t occur out of the blue, they are crafted and built day by day. The results of daily practise amount to staggering results over time. Follow these success habits daily:

1. Ask yourself empowering questions daily

  • What am I happy about in my life right now?
  • What am I excited about in my life right now?
  • What am I grateful for in my life right now?
  • What am I enjoying most in my life right now?
  • What am I committed to in my life right now?
  • Who do I love? Who loves me?

2. Be IN the game (not sitting outside) action gets results

To achieve big results we have to take BIG ACTION ! It won’t happen on its own!

3. Always have the best positive thoughts

Don’t let others steal you of your dreams. Be very aware of negative people entering your head! We use a great saying in our team ‘Don’t do negs’ !

4. Passion and motivation – what does this mean to each of us?

This will have different meanings for each of us, but have you ever asked yourself the question ‘what does success look like?’ Find your passion in life, what is your purpose? Find a purpose bigger than yourself and motivation will never be an issue.

5. Model the way – lead by example

Ask yourself would you follow you? Are you the best version of you, you can be? The sky is not the limit, your mind is!

6. Lastly don’t forget to have fun! Celebrate success!

Live is for living, it’s so important that we have fun, and give yourself permission to celebrate your success. Those little wins that mount up over time are worth a pat on the back!

 

Successful people don’t make excuses they get results! Remember the best things in life requires a sacrifice. activity and commitment.

Work-Life Balance: what is it and can it be achieved?

work life balance

 

The ‘Work-life balance’ is a term that is often thrown around, we are meant to achieve the perfect balance between work and life. But what does that balance look like and how do we know when it’s achieved? The term ‘Work-life balance’ implies that they are at two opposite  ends of the spectrum, you spend a set amount of time at work then the same amount of time with everything that makes up the rest of your life i.e. family, hobbies, holidays etc. In reality this is rarely achievable, for many entrepreneurs and small business owners work isn’t just ‘work’ its a passion, a dream realised, their purpose! Your work and your life aren’t enemies, they should be in sync! What that looks like is as individual as you are!

Creating ‘Work Life effectiveness’

Creating work life effectiveness can mean different things to different people, finding your formulae is the key to your success. You are unique in how you choose to navigate your life. Your formula is like a recipe: have the vision – the purpose.

Our choices in life? What is your calling? What I know for sure – If you ask the question the answer will come. You have to be willing to listen for the answer. You have to get still enough to hear the choices, to pay attention. Through the truth of who you are and what you can be…. Listen to your choice. Oprah

You have to know what you really want to do in life, then focus everything else to line up with that goal, sometimes that means putting you first (read Looking after No. 1). Find your passion, it is so important to love what you do and live magic moments. For most people work and life are inseparable, friendships and personal connections have always been part of work and technology makes us contactable 24 hours a day!

Get real with yourself about your life and everyone in it. Be truthful about what isn’t working in your life and start getting results. You can choose and create your own life. It takes courage and commitment to be genuinely honest with yourself.

When you begin to use your energy, have faith in your passion, and totally trust in your purpose, you will live a spectacular life. Forget balance and make the choices that are right for YOU!

What phrases or quotes have you heard that has had an impact in your life?

I asked this question recently on my Facebook page and the response was fantastic. It seems we can all be inspired by quotes and sayings that resonate with us, we tend to hold on to these quotes and use them as mantra’s for our own life.

Quotes are a way of life – they permeate the world with compartmentalized mantras that are the values, wisdom, and ideals of many.

Quotes make it easier for us to convey our values to others, we all want to communicate with others and be understood, quotes are a great way to put our thoughts into bite-size pieces. Quotes can come from great leaders, books, films or songs, they can make us re-access our lifestyles, provide us with inspiration or make us reflect.  I recommend you record the great quotes that you hear, make sure you write down your favourite quotes and look at them everyday, you will be amazed at motivation they can provide!

Leave your favourite phrases of quotes in the comments below. Read through the Facebook comments, you might find one that resonates with you!

Should you bother making New Year’s resolutions?

Why do we make New Year’s resolutions? Resolutions are hopes/aims for the coming year, things we would like to change that the previous 12 months didn’t deliver. Apparently making resolutions goes way back in history, starting with the Babylonians some 4000 years ago, who reportedly made promises to the gods in hopes they’d earn good favour in the coming year. They often resolved to get out of debt!

Does that resolution sound familiar? How about these: ‘Losing weight’, ‘exercising more’,  ‘spending less and saving more’, ‘quitting smoking’, ‘being a better person’ – these are year on year the top resolutions people make.

Richard Wiseman, a psychologist and author, discovered that 52 percent of people making New Year’s resolutions were confident they’d stick it out. Yet only a scant 12 percent really did.

If so few of us actually stick to making New Year’s resolutions, why do we bother? If you want to change something in your life why do we wait for a particular time of year? Resolution is just another name for goal, we should all be aiming for something! If the New Year is the best time for you to review your goals then go for it but follow these simple tips below so you keep working on your resolutions/goal’s all the year through!

  1. Realize that New Year’s Day is just another day and that making resolutions on this day is no different from making a resolution on any other day.
  2. Get specific. When you set yourself a goal, try to be as specific as possible. “Lose 5 pounds” is a better goal than “lose some weight,” because it gives you a clear idea of what success looks like. Knowing exactly what you want to achieve keeps you motivated until you get there. Also, think about the specific actions that need to be taken to reach your goal.
  3. Decide when and where you will take each action you want to take, in advance. Again, be as specific as possible (e.g., “If it’s Monday, Wednesday, or Friday, I’ll work out for 30 minutes before work.”) Studies show that this kind of planning will help your brain to detect and seize the opportunity when it arises, increasing your chances of success by roughly 300%.
  4. Believing you have the ability to reach your goals is important, but so is believing you can get the ability… Embracing the fact that you can change will allow you to make better choices, and reach your fullest potential. People whose goals are about getting better, rather than being good, appreciate the journey as much as the destination.
  5. Build your willpower muscle. Your self-control “muscle” is just like the other muscles in your body — when it doesn’t get much exercise, it becomes weaker over time. But when you give it regular workouts by putting it to good use, it will grow stronger and stronger, and better able to help you successfully reach your goals.

 

Remember you are stronger than you know, braver than you believe and smarter than you think you are!

  • Know where you are going!
  • ‘Chunk’ the vision – one step at a time.
  • Have visuals up – vision board (subliminal)
