There is no doubt that what Richard Branson learned when he just started off selling budgies as a business transferred over to his other mega successes.
Life is like a spider-web, everything is connected in some way or another.
Safe the time (and the pain) by reading Thai’s 3 hard learned but universal life lessons from three completely different areas of his life…
I will exercise regularly.
I will wake up early.
I will lose that weight.
I will eat more healthy.
How many times have you started something like this only to realise that you never finish doing it? How many times have you tried to eat more greens only to fall back to having none at all? Or perhaps start exercising more only to stop three weeks into the program?
But why is it so difficult to make a new habit stick?
Sometimes in life we feel weak, overwhelmed and out of control of what is happening around—and even more importantly—inside us. There are demands everywhere begging for our attention.
I personally develop the tendency to ignore things in order to keep at least a little control over what is my primary focus. But ignorance is always a poor master.
So I urge you not to give up on your highest expectations! Don’t lower your standards and accept a life that is not truly satisfying you. Don’t accept bad compromises. Don’t accept mediocrity.
Your mindset is at the core of how you see your reality and yourself in it. Beliefs are one of the defining parts of your mindset. In this video you are going to find 2 very effective ways—namely the "But-Exercise" and the "Because-Exercise"—to identify limiting...
In this post Ludvig Sunström is going to briefly outline his framework for learning – a method for getting these neurons to fire together more efficiently – and how he has been able to radically boost and speed up the amount of information that he can learn and memorize:
In the past year I’ve radically improved my ability to learn and memorize information, and you can too, by using the following six practical tools to simplify and diversify the required repetitions…
I’m a strong believer that personal development is the best investment you could ever make.
The reason is really simple.
Improving yourself proactively, working on your awareness, improving your skills and knowledge about how you can get to the edge of your potential, all of that is an investment into the greatest asset you’ll always have: Yourself.
I know from my own experience that this is true.
And I know it from the fact that almost every financially successful person started out with a transformation to become the person who is then able to achieve that kind of success.
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?
