UPGRADE YOUR THINKING

As a man thinketh so is he…
New month, new mindset.

Wow, it’s August already, where has the time gone?
I hope you are all keeping safe.

Having a different perspective is key to your personal development. If you want to different results you will have to do thinks differently. Positive thinking will transform your life.
Here are a few tips on how to upgrade your thinking.

1. Think on good things. Focus your mind on what you want to achieve. Fill your mind with confidence and security. Also write down your goals. By the end of 2020 what do you want to achieve?
2. Have a list of affirmations. Ten times each day repeat your I am and I can affirmations.
3. Identify your areas of negativity. Take a good look at the different areas of your life and identify the ones in which you tend to be the most negative. Tackle one area at a time.
4. Note to self: Start each day on a positive note. Have an attitude of gratitude.
5. Keep believing in yourself. Have faith in your abilities and release your inner powers.

What are you planting?

What are you planting?

Purpose & peace?

Love?

Appreciation?

Newness?

Truth?…

What are you planting with? Who are your companions?

Good companions to grow alongside are people that will offer time and advice. Support you with decision making. Also, just simply being there. Make sure you do your part and help others when they are in need. Putting in a little time and effort will pay off in the long run.

Are you the caretaker? Who are you taking care of?

-Other people

-Family/ friends

-Children

Are you also taking care of YOU?

 

How are you taking care of what you have planted and your companions?

-Quality time with loved ones

-Being a listening ear

-Being there when they need it

-Laughing together

Problem

Are you the are gardener? Or have you let others plant for you? As they don’t understand your vision and purpose, the garden has now over-grown and has become messy. There is chaos and disorder. The ground may eventually become hard.

What you originally planted is not bearing fruit. You have now become dull and ineffective. However, dead things can be resurrected.

Take Action

-Do not let others trespass onto your garden

-You are entitled to prune or remove anything that encroaches onto your side of the boundary.

Tips for seed sowing success

-Moisture the surface of the compost

-Make sure the seeds that you are planting is dug down deep enough as this will help them stay in one place

-Sprinkle the seeds evenly as this will create balance

-Water the seed, this is a vital element. Too much water and your seeds will drown or rot. Too little and they will either fail to germinate or die once they do.

-Ensure the environment in which you plant is tenderly cared for. It would be no good if the environment is toxic and it becomes a dumping ground. This is highly dangerous. This comes with a warning sign. Having a toxic environment is capable of causing death or serious debilitation.

Screenshot 2020-07-03 at 09.01.23

Give your seed the right amount of heat, light and moisture, and they will germinate successfully.

What you plant now will harvest later… if you don’t give up.

What are you planting? Feel free to leave a comment. I look forward to reading what you are planting.

RENEWED MINDSET & MOTIVATION

During Lockdown I have had plenty of time to reflect, refocus and reset.  Let us press the reset button and reprogram our mindsets.

Screenshot 2020-05-09 at 07.47.33

Research conducted April 2020 suggested,

Poor sleep and increased risk of exhaustion are also on the rise with the majority of the 500 respondents (64%) reporting a lack of sleep due to worries with a similar increase in symptoms of fatigue. Some 48% also admitted to working long and irregular hours.

Mental health was also found to be suffering, with half saying they were unhappy with their current work-life balance. A third admitted to frequently feeling isolated, while a fifth are worried about job security.

Our mindset matters, we need to feed our minds with the correct fuel.

A positive mindset means that you have a positive expectation that things will turn out well and that you will succeed. It gives you more courage to try and persist to make changes than if you have a negative mindset. Making positive changes in the way we think is necessary for our health and well-being. It also makes us more productive and focused.

Benefits of a positive mindset

  • Increased life span.
  • Lower rates of depression.
  • Lower levels of distress.
  • Greater resistance to the common cold.
  • Better psychological and physical well-being.

What we feed our minds, that becomes our mindset

SMILE

In these uncertain times we may find ourselves wondering what is going on.
Schools are shut.

Working from home.

More free time.

Restrictions on going out.

You made plans, but now they have been put on hold.

Not sure what to make of it all.

How do you remain positive when there seems to be chaos all around?
Here are a few things that I have been doing to stay focused, I SMILE.

S– Start a gratitude journal or continue writing in your journal.
Write down each day, two things you are grateful for. This will shift your focus and allows you to see that there is always something to be grateful for. You can do this exercise with your children. Members of your family. Call a friend and share your gratitude.

M– Mediate on positive affirmations.

Recite a positive quote in the morning. Think about what it means to you at this time. Share your quote with someone. This is a great exercise because it can transform the way you think and view things

I– Inject some fun into your day.

Dance to some music like no one is watching. Reconnect with old friends. Sing in the shower. Combat boredom and add some fun into your day.

L– Lend a helping hand.

Think about who you can reach out to. This will help you to focus your mind on other things. There are people that need your support. Be that person that extends a lending hand.
I am offering FREE one-hour coaching sessions for individuals who need to refocus and take action. Schedule your call with me today.

E– Enjoy the down time.

We may never get this time again. What is that thing, or in my case the things that you have not got around to do? Don’t overexert yourself. Take one day at a time.

Here are a list of some of the things that I am doing:

  • Decluttering the house, one space at a time.
  • Enrolled onto some free courses.
  • Working on new offers for my business
  • Spending more quality time with family

Reconnect with the things that you have been too busy for.

Remain positive and don’t forget to SMILE.

Share this with someone who you feel may benefit from hearing these tips.

IN THREE SIMPLE STEPS

How committed are you to see your vision come to pass?

Are you willing to work hard and push through even when you don’t see the results?
Be committed to your goals. Commitment shows strength of character. Quitting is easy but following through until you see it come to pass can be difficult.  
Even when it gets difficult, keep on going. You may feel that it is taking too long, and you want to see immediate results. Remember that there is a time for everything. Do not rush the process but persevere because you will see the results.
Here are three keys to help you master your commitment and not give up.
1. Dedication
Screenshot 2020-02-29 at 18.24.26
How dedicated are you?
You start well, until a challenge crosses your path. Then you question should I be doing this? Just because a challenge comes your way, it doesn’t mean that you throw in the towel. Think about how you will navigate the distraction. When you are dedicated you will set yourself a routine. Think about why you doing it, who will it benefit? Your why will keep you moving forward.
2. Determination

Screenshot 2020-02-29 at 18.27.41

Set your face like stone and be determined to carry out the task until completion

Be unwavering. Do not stoop to complaining, criticising or whining. Remember your words have power. Focus your energy on what you are doing and not what others are doing. Keep revisiting your goals and do not let anything stop you from pursuing your goals.

 

3. Drive
Screenshot 2020-02-29 at 18.30.01
Drive is a contributor to high performance. There needs to be a balance when you are driven to do something. Sometimes that drive can lead to burnout. Ensure you have balance. Being driven compels you to have a clear passion for what you are doing
Be calm, steady, and stay committed.
“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.” – Ken Blanchard
Are you committed or just interested?

QUICK TIPS

DARE TO DREAM BIG

‘Without vision there is a lack of focus.’
A Harvard Business study revealed amazing statistics relating to goal setting and success. The study went on to find that the 14% who have goals are 10 times more successful than those without goals. The 3% with written goals are 3 times more successful than the 14% with unwritten goals.
Screenshot 2019-12-30 at 08.25.34
Crystal clear vision.
1. Write your vision and goals down in your journal and make it clear. Research suggests that when you write down your goals you are 42% more likely to achieve your goals. Writing your goals down not only forces you to get clear on what, exactly, it is that you want to accomplish, but doing so plays a part in motivating you to complete the tasks necessary for your success.
2. Create a vision board.
Vision boards are a very powerful tool. It is a great way to manifest your dreams. It enables you to focus on your life, have clarity and have ideal outcomes. Once you have clarity, you select words and images and from magazines and pin them to your board. When you create a vision board it aligns your brain with what you want to attract.
3. Are your goals SMART?
  • Specific

    What do I want to achieve?

    Why do I want to achieve it?

  • Measurable

          How will I measure my goals?

          How will I know when I have reached my goals?

  • Achievable

    How will I achieve my goals?

    What steps do I need to take to achieve my goals?

 
  • Realistic

    Are your goals realistic?

    What resources do you need to achieve it?

    Review and revise your goals if necessary.

  • Timely

    Do you have a time as to when you will achieve your goals?

    When will you achieve your goals?

4. Do you have a support network?
Who do you support with their goals?
Having a supportive network is a great way to be accountable. This allows you to keep you on track.
5. What steps do I need to take to fulfil my goals?
Writing your goals down isn’t enough. You have to put action to the vision.
It’s great to have a vision and have goals. In order for it to come to pass, you have to take action, act today.
The benefits of having goals:
1. Provides a sense of purpose and direction
2. Define your short- and long-term goals
3. Guides the decisions you make
4. It keeps you moving forward, even through the difficult times
‘Write the vision down and make it plain.’

“It’s important to take time to contemplate and self-reflect in order to have a fulfilling life in today’s busy world.” Professor Blakey Vermeule

At this time of year, I like to reflect. Personally, I think its good practice to reflect on your journey. Remember not to compare your journey with anyone else. This is your OWN path. Things should be a little less hectic, so take the time to ponder on 2019.

2020 is fast approaching, there has been highs and lows. Are you elated as to what you have achieved in 2019? Celebrating your wins is crucial, no matter how small, small progress is progress.

Self-reflection helps you to look at what you have carried out so far. Reflect on each area of your life and evaluate. If you want to see growth and change in your life, take action.

Firstly, find a quiet place where there will be no distractions. Like me, you may have to get up slightly earlier before the hustle and bustle begins. In this quiet space, it is just you and your thoughts. 

Secondly, have a notepad and pen to jot down your thoughts. Ask yourself these thought-provoking questions and ponder on them.

  • What have I accomplished?
  • What have I not accomplished?
  • How can I do things differently to produce different results?
  • What else do I want/ need to work on?
  • What action will I take in order to reach my goals?
  • How will I navigate the challenges?
  • What support network do I have?

Be honest with yourself as you go through these questions, as the saying goes, honesty is the best policy. By asking yourself these questions it will help you to see where you are on your personal development track. It allows you to clearly see what changes or adjustments you need to make.

Personal development helps you to make improvements in your life. We can sometimes feel stuck in our present circumstances. The unexpected events of life may take us off course. Do not loose heart, stay on track. You may have to reboot some areas in your life. You never know the tough times you are going through will encourage someone and it will develop the strength you need. Do not stay where you are. We can always make changes in various areas, re-examine your priorities. Change starts with YOU.

Create an action plan, this is all part of the personal development process. Never forget that personal development is a lifelong process. We must always be developing.

Four key benefits to personal development.

1. You will be able to make crystal clear goals

2. You will be motivated

3. You will have a better work-life balance

4. It will improve your prospects

What areas of your life do you want to work on?

Do you have a personal development plan? Why not work on it TODAY!

Personal Development is the key to making positive changes.

Take this festive season to reflect, reboot and step into the new year  re-energised & refreshed.

LIVING OUTSIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE

When you step outside your comfort zone, yes it will feel scary. However, once you keep taking those steps it will start to feel easier. Face your fears and venture out and experience personal growth. When you are in your comfort zone, your brain doesn’t want anything to change.  However, living outside your comfort zone creates just enough good stress to ramp up your focus, creativity, pace, and drive, and it helps you respond to life stress when unexpected things happen.

STEPS TO LIVING OUTSIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE.

To develop your personal development there are several ways to push yourself outside of your comfort zone every day.

1. Don’t take the safe choice
2. Consider other points of views
3. Do what you are afraid of
4. Remember that tomorrow is another day

BENEFITS TO STEPPING OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE.

When I decided to take a leap and give up my job and become a personal development coach, speaker, and author, it was scary. Each day I would do something that scared me. I still take those steps and push myself. I have realised the benefits of living outside my comfort zone. Here are four reasons as to why living outside your comfort zone is beneficial.

1. Personal growth
2. New challenges and experiences rewire your brain and make it more adaptable, stronger, and healthier
3. You will boost your self-confidence
4. Each milestone makes it easier to tackle another milestone
Take that step today

Just do it.

You’ll be glad you did.

Are you living outside your comfort zone?
