I recently turned 30. Changing the first digit in your age is one of those moments when you’re inclined to really think about the way you’ve lived your life so far and the way you want to live it from that point onward. At least it was for me.
It’s not unusual for some feelings of regret to set in. And that gets you thinking how you can prevent it from happening again in the future. Happily for me, I have few feelings of regret about the way I lived my life so far. And I think the lessons I’ve learned will allow me to live a life of no regrets from this moment forward.
I noticed that I’m pretty close to living my dream right now. I have the woman and family of my dreams, I do what I love, I earn enough, I live where I want to live. And all in all I’m feeling pretty good.
It wasn’t always like this, especially not when I was a teenager. So I made quite some transformation in my life.
And I’m thankful for that. Because I know that there is only one constant in our universe. And that is change.
In this guest-post Jorge Blanco writes: “The very first time I found myself determined to achieve a goal was during my teenage years when I wanted to go to Japan and study Computer Science there.
It was the biggest dream for me at the time and I was able to achieve it.
But after a year, I suddenly realized I wasn’t feeling as elated as I imagined I would be. I felt lost and empty…”
The fear of failure is probably the biggest single thing responsible for people not living up to their potential. Nothing has such a strong grip on holding you back from your dreams, aspirations and deepest desires as this one.
How can you overcome the fear of failure?
How can you start to courageously look this fear in the eye and still take the risk of going the next step?
If you are having difficulties starting productive into your day, wasting time checking emails or facebook, reading news or watching videos, then this might be the cure for you.
Honestly, this is the simplest and best productivity habit I know of. Since I have implemented it into my own working day my productivity doubled — at least!
I call this killer productivity habit: Start with #1.
I’m just in the process of shooting the final videos of my upcoming personal development course (more on that soon…) The final module — “Effective Action” — is all about getting done what we’ll have planned in the earlier modules.
So lately I did some interviews with other time-management experts and also people just trying to improve their productivity level. I just wanted to dig really deep and understand the different types of productivity killers that everybody of us is fighting with…
So let’s see what your productivity killers really are…
I believe at the core of comparing lies the fear of inferiority. Feeling inferior or inadequate is really hard to tolerate, so we do anything to check if there is a slight chance of being inadequate. This need to validate yourself leads to comparing, in the hope to come to the conclusion that you are ok. Then you know that you are enough.
So in this post I’m going to answer the first questions to my latest “Ask me Anything!” email. The topic is jealousy and how to stop comparing yourself to others. We will look at 4 methods to break the habit of comparing yourself to others and at more constructive ways how you can deal with jealousy if you feel it.
