🔅5 High Performance INSIGHTS🔅
Your Best Life is WITHIN Reach
👩🦳👨🦳 As we grow older, many of us adjust our expectations and goals to fit our season. Few people are dedicated to the pursuit of their true goals.
🤔 But what many people don't realize is that your route to success is like the start of an avalanche. It is slow and hard at first but it gathers momentum and becomes easier the more you practice the correct steps and methods.
🌈 Your dream life is within reach but it begins with the smallest steps. So take action!
The RIGHT Timing is Usually Now
☃️ Are you waiting for that perfect opportunity to ask for a raise or a change of job?
🌤 Waiting for things to be JUST right before you take the jump? Take it from a guy who have wasted a lot of time before learning this truth.
🌟 The stars do align… but ONLY once every thousand years.
Most of us do not have that time. The Timing is now. Take action first and then correct course along the way
Look Back, You have come a long way…
People with a growth mindset often look forward to where they want to go and what they want to become. We often fail to look back and appreciate how far we have came.
Gratitude, appreciation and gratefulness are important elements to a fulfilling live. It would be a pity if you have climbed every mountain and sailed every ocean and still, you don't find satisfaction and meaning in your journey.
Admit it, its hard to keep up your energy and motivation for sustained periods. Faltering is natural so a good way to remedy that and keep morale high is to constantly put in rewards and incentives for yourself.
Small rewards for small task achieve. Big incentives for big project. It really helps.
Let Go, You May Not Be As IMPORTANT As You Think You Are
This especially applies if you are working in a team.
You find that once you lessen your grip, things don't get done. Relax….
Trust your team to deliver in your absence. Take the break you desperately need because if you burnt out, the team is going to burn out.
Take the time you need to recharge. Escape and be a hermit for a while if you want to. Opt-out for a week to do some deep thinking. Everything will be okay even if you are gone for this short period.
🔅2 QUOTES FROM OTHERS🔅
“It always seems impossible until it’s done.” ― Nelson Mandela
“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the water to create many ripples.” — Mother Teresa
🔅1 QUESTION FOR YOU🔅
What if you try something completely different for 48 hours?
Is your current approach towards problem solving the most optimal way? Are you constantly looking for ways to improve and be more efficient?
Once we stop learning, we stop growing. So if we stick to one way of doing things and be comfortable with it, we run the risk of stagnating our own growth.
So think deep, get asking.
I hope you will learn something new and valuable with this exercise.
Until next week,
Caleb & Yvonne Megan
