3 Essential Questions to Keep you on Track

 

New Way

Running your health/wealth/relationships can feel like a never-ending exercise.

There’s always something going on!

They say sharks need to keep swimming else they die. It can sometimes feel like that… if you don’t keep moving you’ll be done for…

Here’s the thing, many sharks stop & rest on the ocean floor for a while. It doesn’t make them any less sharks.

This is the best kind of shark to be. Not like the ones always charging full speed searching for their next meal, but the kind who can also be still and just breathe.

When you take the time to stop and assess what’s going on you can make effective decisions.

Once a week, ask yourself the 3 Essential Questions to Keep you on Track. 

Make a committed appointment with yourself.

Write down your answers.

You’ll gain crucial insight into what you need to tweak.

  1. What Went Great?

Recognise and acknowledge your successes first. Build your self esteem. 

It’s common to worry about not being good enough, not having enough or losing what you’ve got.

It’s common to look at the other people and compare yourself.

It’s common for even super successful people to fear people are soon going to find out they’re an idiot and they’re only one blunder away from blowing everything.

These are signs you have high standards for yourself which is good. Just make sure you’re applying your standards in a way that builds you up and doesn’t de-stabilise you.

Hence, recognise and acknowledge your successes first. Build yourself up.

  • What did you do this week that went great? 
  • What did you get right?

Whatever you did, acknowledge it and write it down so you recognise the cause-and-effect connection between what you do and your own success. It’s the things you’ve done that got you where you are, and the things you’ll do next that’ll get you to where’s next.

The better you get at recognising the things you do right, the easier it’ll be to do those things again and again. It’s hard to repeat your successes if you don’t know what they are or what you thought said or did to get them.

 2. What Could have Gone Better? 

When you make a mistake, your brain and conscience know immediately. It’s an inbuilt way of teaching you not to do that again.

Unfortunately, we’re also really good at denial, rationalisation, justification and even blaming someone or something else. When we ignore the mistakes and failures that make us feel uncomfortable, we’re more likely to repeat them. 

If we don’t listen to the whispers we’ll get the screams.

The sooner and more honestly you confront the things that could’ve gone better, the easier it gets and the more empowering it can be.

Get comfortable with the idea that not everything goes great or according to your plan or timeframe all the time.

  • What happened this week that you’d have liked to have gone better? 

Write it down.

All of it, even the uncomfortable things and major screw-ups.

This naturally leads into the most important thing to ask yourself:

3. What Can you do to Improve?

Hold your head high. There’s no point beating yourself up forever.

Change your focus toward what you could have done differently.

  • What can you improve to increase the chances of things going great in future?

Write it down.

When you recognise and acknowledge what you could’ve done differently, it reassures you to not fear mistakes or failures in the future because you’ll know what to do.

Ask yourself, “Will doing it this way take me closer to or further away from what I want?”

Turn the not-so-great-events into teachable moments so you don’t need to be concerned about running into them again. Maximise your hindsight wisdom and apply it as foresight.

Use this for things that weren’t your fault as well as to the things that were.

Take action:

Set aside a regular time every week to reflect on your recent wins, setbacks and things you could’ve done differently.

Set yourself up to move forward more prepared and more confident than ever before.

Remember to have fun with this. Don’t take yourself of life too seriously, but seriously enough to ensure you create your dreams while you’re still young and vital enough to enjoy them.

I’d love to see your progress as you make your constructive and self-supporting changes! Head over to https://www.facebook.com/BeInOnePeace and say hello. Make sure you include your business page name so I can see you!

Bombing Countries is Like Taking Antibiotics

Bomb Residue

Antibiotics wipe out “bad” bacteria & “good” bacteria. They do nothing to raise health or immune system function & the recipient is left to deal with the original problem (why is the infection there in the first place?) as well as the side effects of the medication.

Bombing is much the same. It wipes out “bad” people (according to the perspective of the bomber, or is boss, or his govt) & good people & their homes, infrastructure & livelihood. It does nothing to promote health, education, community, peace, respect or sustainability. The recipients are left to deal with the loss of loved ones, homes, food sources, body parts, & it shifts an exponential burden to other countries to send aid (which has a time lag… plants take time to grow), or take refugees (with concomitant culture, language & self esteem issues).

How about we bomb the less fortunate with love, education, sustainable food & energy sources, clothes, bedding…?

Make Your Vision Stronger than Your Past

Bright Future

You get more of what you think about. 

If you over-think your past and what could-a, would-a or should-a been, you’ll get more of the same.

To create the future you desire you need to know what that is, and focus on it. Grow it.

Make all your decisions according to: “Does this take me closer to, or further away from what I want?”

Were you born to do what you’re doing?

purpose

Deep down inside you already know you were born for a reason, that you have a “life purpose”.

The sad thing is most people die with their music still in them.

Take a look around your environment and ask yourself: “Was I born to do this?”
If the answer is no, this is a gentle reminder to stop working hard in the wrong direction.

  • Do you know what you’re passionate about and what you really want to do with your life?
  • Are you afraid of doing something new?
  • Are you not living the lifestyle you want because you keep sabotaging yourself?

If you don’t listen to the whispers you get the screams

Libido

  • A healthy thirst indicates health. When you lose or ignore your thirst or it gets excessive, it indicates lack of health.
  • A healthy appetite indicates health. Loss of appetite or excess appetite indicates lack of health.
  • A healthy libido indicates health. Loss of sex drive or excess sex drive indicates lack of health.

Resolve your stress and restore your health as soon as you notice the signs.

If you don’t listen to the whispers you get the screams

New Year New Possibilities

New

Our culture seems to applaud the new:

  • “Out with the old, in with the new”
  • “New & improved”
  • “New car” smell

There can be a fixation on new. For some people “new” patients/customers/ideas/careers/projects/partners/locations/clothes/cars/houses/lovers/etc are more valued than the people or situations who’ve shown up for decades.

New can be exciting, different, news-worthy.

If you only gravitate to the new & dismiss the old, then following tried and true ways to grow your business/spirit/health/wealth/well-being/relationships/etc may seem too boring or lack the adrenaline response that comes with buying the expensive, unproven or risky.

Do what works. Incorporate the old AND the new that takes you closer to what you want (rather than further away).

Stop trying to get your life back to how it used to be

IssuesRestoring something back to where it was is no use, because that’s where the problem started in the first place! 

Be discerning. What caused your issues? Be & do who & what’s required to resolve them, & move on. Rather than trying to get back to where you were, strive to move forwards to higher ground.
