TURNING YOURSELF ON TO SELF-DISCIPLINE
STRATEGY 1: Master Your Habits
Controlling Bad Habits - That statement is both true and false. True in the sense that before we know it something that we thought we could easily master or control is now much more difficult. It is a false statement because I do not believe any habit is unbreakable. Every habit can be subjected to our control. Controlling bad habits leads the list for ways to save time. This is where we begin in the process of conquering the Operational Success-Blockers. It is the foundation upon which we build solid time management structures. Therefore before the discussion of time-saving tips we need to develop the skill of controlling our habits.
Show me any person with a strong sense of self-control and I'll show you a winner. Conversely, a loser has little control.
The really high achievers in life have a common denominator - they have mastered their habits. Take a look for a minute at the really poor achievers in life;...
One of the things I am known for is telling it ‘straight’ even when straight isn’t always popular.
I’ve been a friend of Bill W. for over 40 years. Bill W. was the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous. (AA) I guess it’s not too anonymous if I’m telling you J but as a teacher, mentor, and leader, I feel it’s important to tell the truth.
Before I was a ‘Graduate’ of AA, I was a ‘Sometimes’ member. Sometimes I’d go to the meetings and stay ‘dry’ – sometimes I would miss the meetings because of certain ‘circumstances’. What were the ‘circumstances’? I fell off the wagon!
For a while, until I learned new ways of coping, I fell into the clutches of three incredibly bad habits. The ‘Habit Demon’ would take over my mind and I’d get stuck in a loop of three self-destructive habits.
Gerry, what does this have to do with me – or my business?
“I am not afraid of anything. I wasn’t afraid to lose either of my matches. It didn’t matter about the gold medal.
I love to wrestle and I just wanted to have fun and I did.”
These were the words spoken on August 18, 2016 by young Canadian, Erica Wiebe, after she won a gold medal in women’s wrestling at the Olympic games in Brazil.
What if we re-learned how to handle fear, stress, and risk?
Birds do it. Bees do it. Even educated fleas do it. Let’s do it…let’s …
TAKE A RISK!!!
Many of you will recognize the above first line from an old-time song…
Birds do it. Bees do it. Even educated fleas do it. Let’s do it…
LET’S FALL IN LOVE.
Birds take risks to find food and build their nests. Bees take risks to search for pollen and serve their Queen. I must admit, I don’t know much about fleas and their daily habits and activities – but I am sure they take risks too.
To continue with the words of the...
As I was standing outside the ornate and beautiful Casino Monte Carlo, I could not help but think, ‘How many people walk out of that building with a whole lot LESS money than they walked in with.’
No one goes to a casino to give up their money on purpose but the overwhelming majority of people lose. Ironically, many people lose more than just money. They lose their confidence. They lose their self-control. They lose their awareness of what is really happening and they can even lose next month’s rent or mortgage payment.
Contrary to popular belief, going to a casino or buying lottery tickets is NOT financial planning!
The beautiful building that is the Casino Monte Carlo was built, bought and paid for with OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY. Whose money? LOSERS' money. People consciously went into the building, placed their bets – LOST – and the Casino survived. That the Casino is still in business is a testimony to the fact that people keep...
