How to Successfully Reach Your Goals

personality vs character ethics

How does this pic help you reach your goals successfully? 

Character – What we are communicates far more eloquently than anything we say or do!

Character is the foundation of all effectiveness!

Our first energies should be on our own character development.

This means before we focus on the techniques (personality ethics) we should focus on how to be effective with ourselves and with others.

This leads to success!

Let’s take for example, integrity…this means honesty & truthfulness – basically doing what you say you’re going to do, right?

If this is apart of your character, you won’t have to think about it, you’ll just do it.

Imagine if you say you’re going to workout 3 days a week….by having integrity you’ll do it!

You may argue that that’s not necessarily the case, but I’ll counter it is!  

If you know you won’t be able to do it, then don’t say you’re going to do it!

You know who you are.

If that’s too big of a stretch for you, start with something you can do. 

For example: Saying I will workout one day this week.

If you workout more then it’s a bonus!

So what happens when you can’t keep your word? Communicate it!

Tell whoever you told (even if it’s yourself) that you won’t be able to do it – perhaps give an explanation and be more aware the next time you commit to something.

Take baby steps and stop over-stressing your life by making commitments you may not be able to keep.

Focus on your character.

Be the Change

2017-07-24 07.44.39

Today we are in a digital age where the news is limited to 140 characters and conversations take place in the form of emoji’s.

This has resulted in the shortening of our attention span. Now it’s more difficult for us to stay focused.

It is said that our attention span is less than that of a goldfish! (Goldfish, by the way, averages 9 seconds.)

There are, however, ways to improve our attention span – such is unplugging.

Unplug from texts, tweets, Facebook, tv, and other interruptions, if not for the whole day than at least for several hours.

Pay attention to the riches of the world around you in the ensuing silence.

Benefits of Being Open-Minded

2017-07-19 06.47.12

This is perhaps the single most important characteristic you can have.

To be open-minded means to remove your personal  prejudices and biases from any situation and completely immerse yourself in another experience.

This will help you to learn, grow, strengthen and believe in yourself.

It means being flexible and adaptive to new experiences and ideas.

There is an honesty that comes with being open-minded because it means admitting that you aren’t all knowing.

It means being willing to change your view when presented with new facts, ideas and evidence. 

It doesn’t mean that you change who you are, it is more of a level of understanding that goes beyond having the ego of being all-knowing.

Having an open mind will lead to new experiences, different opportunities and new level of understanding.

How can you develop an open mind?

Try these:

  • Become inquisitive 
  • Learn something new
  • Practice meditation

When you have the ability to objectively look at all options, you open up a whole new realm of possibilities.

Expand your mind; expand your world!

Why Should You Be Optimistic?

2017-07-18 06.51.13

Being optimistic can influence more than just your mood, it can also help you commit to your goals and be more satisfied with your life.

Even if you aren’t feeling particularly hopeful, pretending to have a cheery disposition will negate dwelling on the negativity which is not healthy.

Optimism is contagious, so if you’re having trouble pretending, find someone you know that is optimistic and seek them out.

Regardless of how your circumstances may look right now, don’t give up!

Attitude is everything and optimism is the best choice.
