Most of us have accumulated issues or scenarios that lead us to think and behave the way we do. You won’t be able to identify it because of your proximity but if you take a journal and you record your life’s most heart-wrenching experiences, then you are off to a good start.
It’s a step in the process that helps you re-enter your past and uncover the answers that define who and what your problems are and also the why behind it. Blocking out negative experiences only suppresses your mind’s ability to deal with the situation and any triggers. Facing things head-on, even if it’s voicing your deepest, darkest secret out into an empty room, helps your mind acknowledge what has taken place.
To create a roadmap that can help deal with internal issues, the process is straightforward:
Action or Non-action.
This series of steps will help determine where you’ll end up. You can either emerge from the process transformed and relieved. Or if you aren’t able to complete all the steps, you’ll find yourself in limbo. The will to overcome and rise from the ashes must be there. Don’t allow yourself to be taken advantage off, even if it is by you.
When you’re transformed or going through a transformation, it’s enjoying being reborn. You see the world through a new lens. There are things you would have never noticed prior but then you observe and realize minuscule little details. The past has no hold on you anymore, the present exists with you now and then the future holds such opportunity for bountiful bliss it’s like why you hadn’t done this sooner.
That’s why people say, “If only I knew then, what I know now.”
Well, now you know and it’s only fair that you try to put your career or business together through setting effective goals and timelines. People try to eat the whole cake in one sitting, but they forget the most important part; You need to bite a little at a time and chew softly. You’ll get your entire cake, but you just need to manage your time successfully and what’s important to you.
Being transformed is one thing, it’s quite another to live and act the role. You would have been experiencing the high of life being great again and feeling like you’re invincible. What happens after a while is the high becomes low if you’re not feeding it. Your body rewards itself with endorphins and dopamine to say, “Congratulations you’ve worked hard,” and this is what you accomplished. You can’t expect to not continue to work hard and reap any rewards or benefits. It’s like preaching, but not believing or talking the talk and not walking the walk. People should be able to see you by how you carry about yourself.
It’s okay to aim high in life, and there’s no rule or law against it. When you push yourself to the limit, no one but yourself can achieve it. After accomplishing this feat, others will come around and try to outperform you. But if you hadn’t set the bar that high, there would be nothing for them to compete against. There’s no doubt now that you’ll just aspire to reach a higher amazing feat at a time.
Aiming high and managing achievable goals is all up to the individual. It depends on what people consider achievable goals. Is it materialistic, spiritual, tangible intangible? People can be fixated on wealth and status just because of societal norms but there are others who consider themselves worthy. Someone can be a master at stacking plates without having them break but no one would know that the skill was gained through years of practice and patience and only when in action then someone might acknowledge or notice.
In order for anyone to achieve effective goal-setting they can use this technique. You need to write what is that you want to achieve and the time frame that it should be possible within. Then you use the funnel approach to dig deeper into this goal and break it down into the most simple, comprehensible format that makes it easy and manageable. The key to anything is practice and more practice. The more you do something the more professional you become at it and it’s only building your skill set. When tasks are spread out over a period, it doesn’t become overbearing and it doesn’t leave room for errors and failures. Time is the one factor that you can’t get back, so as long as you’re ahead, keep projecting for your future.
Sticking to over one goal can be difficult because we weren’t designed to multi-task. Give yourself one thing at a time to do and prepare so you don’t become a jack of all trades but master of none. It’s good to tune out the noise, sometimes the people around you aren’t interested in your well-being. Remind yourself daily of what you want to achieve and not listen to others whose contribution feels more like a dead weight than a balloon.

If something — anything — is to flourish, it must be fed with all the things that able its growth. A garden will never become fruitful without nourishment from the soil. Roots are firmly placed where they can absorb what the plant needs to survive. The same can be said for all aspects of life, but it is especially true for our professional pursuits. There is no merit or point to say that the world is without its biases, however, to dwell upon them is to hamper yourself eternally.Read More
When you hear the terminology “internal improvement” one would swear that you require surgery of some sort to fix what’s going on inside of you. However, I don’t believe too much in popular medicine’s quick physical diagnosis of why we as humans are uncomfortable with ourselves. You can’t improve something without knowing what’s wrong. The same goes for your outlook towards life and the situations you’re placed in. Often, you look towards your physical space as something to be fixed.Read More
In Japan, honne and tatamae are principles that can explain your behaviors and thoughts. Honne would be your true thoughts and sense of self, while tatamae are the social facades that put up for a social group. You can say that we have many faces: one that we show to ourselves, one to our family and friends, and another to the wider world. If that is true, then it makes sense that our lives are segmented.Read More
Have you ever noticed how difficult it is to get back up when you take a break? Do you wonder why? It’s similar to how a car works when the engine is engaged and then it can run for miles, but leave it to rest for a long time and you will probably have to call the mechanic. You can’t call a mechanic to kick start your mind’s engines, however, you have to be able to jumpstart yourself.Read More
Everyone is goal-oriented. Even though some repeat it on their CV to boost their profile, it is an inherent trait for those who want to see growth. In fact, we can all agree that scratching things off of our to-do list gives us a great sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. The problem with being addicted to box-checking is that we find ourselves creating tasks that are unnecessary but easy to accomplish to boost our sense of productivity.Read More
When you’ve done something wrong, how often do you come to terms with it, apologize to those who were wronged, and learn from it? More importantly, how many times have you blamed someone else or some other external factor that you have no control over? Sometimes, things happen that are completely out of our control, but how many times do will pick the “safe” route and hold someone or something else accountable.Read More
