Your Personal Stickability

 

Your Personal Stickability

Your Personal Stickability

Your personal ability to stick to things will count in this life. Many people say they want to do things, but when they start it may start out well however adversity will show up.

Your ability to stick with goals and objectives or things that you have put your name on and committed to, is what will count in the end. You have to determine your personal stickability.

If you do not, just remember that a habit will be formed. That habit will become a dark habit of stopping things in the middle of them being attempted.  Do not start this habit! Develop your own personal stickability and prosper.

What is something you wish you had better stickability with but didn’t stay with it? A business, relationship, a job?

Difference in Temporary Defeat and Failure

 

Difference in Temporary Defeat and Failure

Difference in Temporary Defeat and Failure

The man or woman who understands the difference between temporary defeat and failure is very fortunate in their learning and understanding.

They understand that defeats are learning processes. A good NBA team will lose 20 to 30 times in a given season, yet that team may still win the NBA title.

The season was not a failure.

More fortunate than the man or woman who understands the above difference is the woman or man who has learned the truth that the planting of success is simply asleep in every defeat they experience.

The failure believes the seed of success was killed in a defeat, not understanding it was simply dormant. If you totally understand the difference, you will be a totally successful person!

What is something you’ve taken as a failure not realizing it was a temporary defeat?

How to Overcome Obstacles

 

How to Overcome Obstacles!

How to Overcome Obstacles!

It is inevitable that obstacles will always come into play within your life. If you live a life without obstacles, you would be a completely lazy untested person.

Obstacles help you become battle tested. With no obstacles, you would have no motivation because there is nothing you would have to overcome.

So in life we all must learn how to overcome obstacles.

The way to do it is to first have a sound strategy. Sound strategies have an A, B, C route so that if route-A encounters a roadblock, you should be able to switch gears to route-B.

What happens to most people is that they come up with a strategy that only consist of route-A.

When a huge or small obstacle steps in front of route-A, this person is doomed to stop their trip because it appears to them there is no other way.

They are forced to look at the obstacle, which has a way of appearing very dauntingly and bigger than it really is, and in doing this people forget the overall vision and plan they originally had.

Therefore we must remember to look at our strategy more closely and have Plan-B’s and C’s in order to keep moving and overcome obstacles that will come in our path!

What are some worthwhile strategies you’ve used to overcome obstacles?!

What’s Your OST?

What’s Your OST?

 

What’s Your OST?

What’s Your OST?

I began reading a book by Alastair Campbell, and I won’t review the book here because I merely began reading it a few days ago.

At any rate, Campbell lays out something that all winners in the world have. They have an OST.

What is OST?

Winners have an objective or popularly known as a goal. With that objective, winners have a strategy to obtain the goal. Most people have goals or objectives, but they do not have sound strategies or a strategy period to get what they want.

Campbell says this is nearly the most vital thing today because knowledge is everywhere. People have access to the same coaches, teachers, mentors, leaders, and everything else that the next man and woman has access to.

What set’s winners from losers is strategy. What’s important about strategy is that it must be written down.

The last thing is tactics. Just because we have a strategy doesn’t mean everything is going to go as planned. This is where tactics come into play. Tactics are thing things you must do to establish the strategy.

I guess, said another way would be the “GPA,” goal, plan, actions. As I get more into the book, maybe I’ll do a review or maybe just give more micro tips for you. Develop your OST today!

The new year is coming upon us, it is a good time to write out a new OST or refine the one you’re currently working on!

Fake Positive People, Positive All the Time!

Are You Being Fake By Being Positive All the Time

 

Are You Being Fake By Being Positive All the Time?

Are You Being Fake By Being Positive All the Time?

You’ve seen it where someone is too positive all the time. They are too positive to mourn, to feel bad, to watch the news, and are a bit out of touch with reality.

I was like that for a moment in time where I’d be around some friends of mine and they would be giving me the rundown on the atrocities and negative news going around the world and city, and I’d first of all didn’t know these types of things existed.

It started when I went on an information fast and completely stopped watching the news, reading the paper, reading news blogs, and listening to podcasts. When I did come back to info consumption, I only read books that lined up with my goals and dreams, and aspirations.

Naturally, I’m an empathetic person, so if someone called me with the news that someone died or was shot, I’d respond the way a normal person should respond to someone else’s bad sad or troubling news.

That’s terrible, and saddening. I’m really sorry to hear that. Is there anything specific you need from me (besides my unconditional care and love – I don’t say that part, but I express it)?”

From there I find positives that can counter some of the negatives and act as hope for them or light in the midst of their dark moment.

People who ignore or brush off, or quickly move to another topic, upon hearing bad news from someone else, are not being fake, but they have lost touch with reality a bit. They perhaps also have a low level of empathy or don’t know how to express empathy well.

Positive people feel all the emotions that negative or ordinary people feel. The difference is that we make a conscious decision and effort to turn the camera from the negative scene and go back to the positive one.

Are You Being Fake By Being Positive All the Time

It is possible to be positive all the time; such person is a “conscious being,” and that consciousness has seeped into their subconsciousness and that becomes all they know.

The only way they know how to respond to anything has been poured into them so that it is natural and automatic. It’s not fake, it is who they have become or transformed into.

Do you know people positive all the time, and how do you deal with them?

Activating Your Power Through Authority

 

Activating Your Power Through Authority

Activating Your Power Through Authority

Power is organized effort, and it leads to success.

As you go after organized effort, which is power, you will most likely find yourself in a position of asking or needing help from someone who is more powerful than you are at that moment.

When you run into such a case, you must understand the way or the formula of asking for help. Powerful people do not give help to weak beggerly people.

This is what brother James tells in the scripture, to boldly ask for what you want from your Creator and do not come doubtingly or window-washy. James says that such a man will not get anything from God with that type of mindset.

It is perhaps the same reason why such a person will not receive anything from the hands of man, if they come asking in the wrong way. The way to ask for help from someone more powerful than you, lives in your ability to understand the person you’re dealing with and not to confuse what you need from them with their needs.

Robert Greene says in the book Power (p98), that most people never succeed at getting what they want from other powerful people, because they are completely trapped in their own wants and desires.

They begin their quest for what they want by assuming the powerful people they are dealing with are selfless and want to help them. Nobody wants to help you, therefore you must find a way to help their need in order for them to want to help whatever your need is.

This is what we call authority and it will help to activate any power, organized effort, that you need. You need to be authorized and that comes from powerful people by dealing with their needs in order to fulfill yours.

What kind of problems have you faced that got smaller when you saw some of the problems of other people in the world?
