Just about 45 mins and you can use what you learn to:
Create win win situations where none exists. Say no and still not offend people. Enhance your personal brand. Impress your higher-ups and Build great relationships by showing your sincerity… even in your Nos.
If you want to run away from repetitive thoughts, btw, humans think about 60,000 thoughts per day and most of it remains the same (according to studies). Think how boring a life we live. In fact, we only experience about 6 different emotions in a week. Shocking isn’t it.
My take is that this is because we have never been shared a tool to help us think different and have more control over creating different feeling that we would desire to experience.
How about a simple tool you can use any where to change the quality and vibrations of your thoughts and hence create a different experience internally which will lead to creating different reality on the outside. Huh… sounds like a lot, isn’t it? But it is in no way difficult or even close to it.
When I discovered it the only question I had was why did no one tell me about it before. I am sure you will feel the same. So watch the video.
More understanding of ‘why’ you operate the way you operate in this world
With passage of time, you will discover ‘how’ can you operate better for success and fulfillment in this world
As you practice asking this question more and more you will find and inside-out way of operating in this world which will mean that the new behaviors that you will discover will stay with you for longer and you will find it easier to follow-through on your plans, goals and commitments.
Pick a problem. (Any kind of problem – business related, personal etc.)
Ask – how is this problem serving me? (Write as many points as you can think of and then pick 1 or 2 that connects with you)
How can this problem serve me?
Most importantly, what is this problem telling me about me?
This is an exercise in ownership and till you don’t own it, you can’t help yourself. Sometimes it may not make sense but one thing is certain every time these questions can help you find those tiny or big areas where you can make some improvements.
If you can swallow this bitter pill and become single-minded about making those changes in the areas identified then you will make this life a long and fulfilling journey. But if you can’t then one day you will find yourself complaining about everything in life.
The journey of personal development starts only and only with ‘Ownership’, every other step is a false start.
I believe that what separates the also-rans from the uber-successful people is that the also-rans need external motivation but for uber-successful people their goal is their biggest motivation and they do not need anything else to motivate them.
Another way of looking at it, and I think we should really pay attention to this, is make your biggest motivation as your goal.
So, when you set your next goal, look at what really keeps you up and take that and make it your life goal or your next big mission and you will never need any other motivation.
If you are comfortable you can share your responses and thoughts in comments section for the benefit of others.
Sometimes in our rush of daily lives we forget the very engine that drives us and gives quality to our lives and everything that we do in our lives. Therefore, it is important that we regularly take a few steps back and re-look at our lives, shift our actions and question our beliefs so that it all aligns together to weave a magic we want our life to become.
Here is a list of 3 questions that can help you do that:
What drives you to work presently?
How does it make you feel?
What would you like to be your drive instead so that you get a level of satisfaction, fulfillment and achievement that will make you ecstatic?
Hoping to see a few responses here.
Have a good time and do let me know if you have any suggestions eg. a few more questions or different questions.
This is a live video that I did some time back. In this video I go really deep in the subject to keep things more real and useful for everybody who may need it.
I believe this is very useful for teenagers and people who have issues of self-esteem and/or issues related to complexes that arise as a result of how people perceive them in society based on how they look.
The content in the video can also be used for enhancing the self-esteem for other people well into the later years of their life.
To anyone who watches this, my request is – please forward it to those who may need this.
*Using a headphone or earphone to listen will be better because of the voice quality
As I work with more and more people in my life, my philosophy about why individual uniqueness is not only important but is the most critical thing to be preserved becomes more and more solid with each passing day.
This becomes even more important as you work as a coach or play any other role where you are nudging or pushing people to grow and evolve into a better and more powerful versions of themselves.
You break the person, the moment you try to make the person into something that you have bought from your own experiences.
You break the person the moment you try to make the person into something that you believe is right.
Unfortunately, individual uniqueness is something that neither parents nor teachers nor leaders naturally tend to understand and as a result in their attempts to build people they break them.
The only way to learn and grow is – inside-out.
And the only way you can do this is by first exploring what is within. Once you get enough clarity on that every individuals own path to their destiny starts showing up in their unique ways which will work for them.
This part of the work, understanding the uniqueness, can become useful only when it is done with non-judgemental attitude. It doesn’t matter whether you are working on yourself or you are working with someone else; the exploration part of what is within has to be non-judgemental.
The other bit that becomes very difficult for people to do is what I call as playing the role of a witness. So you are only watching the events and you are not participating. This helps you to not giving them your solutions and respecting the person for who they are and helping them find their path.
If you are looking to go to the next level in your life, climb the next peak that entices you then the challenges and opportunities both lie within you. You have to dig deeper and have a look at what is in there that can push you all the way to the top.
Go within and don’t doubt
Believe that you are an unfinished masterpiece because you are.
