Stop Chasing Success!

Chasing success is futile. Success is something we attract. Success is looking for a good place to stay. If you want to attract people to your organization that are smart, energetic, and have a great attitude, you must first display those things yourself. “We don’t attract who we want, we attract who we are.” John C. Maxwell
An A player doesn’t want to work for a B or a C player. That isn’t how life works. Eagles don’t fly with ducks. A players are attracted to other A players. We unconsciously model the behavior of the people we spend the most time with, so successful people tend to have successful friends and colleagues. Success is something we attract by the person we become. Instead of chasing success, we should focus on becoming someone that attracts success. “Personal development – the never-ending chance to improve not only yourself, but also to attract opportunities and affect others.” Jim Rohn Continue reading Stop Chasing Success!

The Habit: Week-6 (Find Pleasure in the Process)

This week’s challenge is to find pleasure in the process. Discipline is the ability to force ourselves to do what we should do when we should do it. It is something we all struggle with and must develop, but motivation can be a more powerful driver of action. What if you could find pleasure in the tasks you must do. If you can equate pleasure with the task, you’ll be a lot more successful. “Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.” – Aristotle

If you don’t enjoy what you do, you aren’t really successful. Finding pleasure in the job is our responsibility. Our attitude toward what we do is a choice we make each day. We are responsible for our own happiness. We are responsible for our attitude toward our work, toward our relationships, and toward our life. If we cannot find happiness in our daily routine, we aren’t really successful. Continue reading “The Habit: Week-6 (Find Pleasure in the Process)”

Focus on your WHY – It is so much more important than your WHAT & HOW

Before we do anything, we should first ask ourselves WHY we are doing it. Our why effects everything. It affects our effort, our attitude, and our determination. If you have a bad attitude about work, chances are you don’t have a good reason; a good WHY for what you do.

The story of Three Bricklayers building a church demonstrates the importance of finding meaning in what you do. All three men were doing the same work, but when they were asked what they were doing, the first bricklayer replied, “I’m laying bricks.” The second bricklayer said, “I am feeding my family.” The third bricklayer said, “I’m building the house of God.” Which one do you think took the most pride in his work? Too many managers only think of monetary rewards to motivate people when they could motivate their employees by teaching them to find meaning in what they do. When people see how their work is making a difference to the company or to their community, it will motivate them to take more pride in what they do. Unless you are financially independent, you work to earn a salary, but I hope that isn’t the only reason you do what you do.

The Habit: Week-4 (Keep a Journal)

This week’s challenge is to journal for at least 10-minutes every day. This one habit can alter the trajectory of your life. Keeping a journal has numerous benefits. Don’t make the common mistake of thinking a journal is a diary. It isn’t.

  1. Reconnect with your goals

  3. Detect your values
  4. Capture and organize great ideas
  5. Improve your problem solving
  6. Become more creative
  7. Learn to communicate better
