LearningSkill-Jan2020.png

Education doesn’t only happen in school. In fact, it’s important for us to always keep learning even when we finish our studies. Therefore, a learning culture is what we need to establish in order to forge a brighter future, regardless of the path we choose to take. It’s the driving force that must constantly be nurtured and strengthened to always pave the way towards growth and development.

 

Our mind is the basis of everything that’s happening in our life so we have to cultivate it and train it to think differently for every aspect of our life to improve and flourish. Use guiding principles. It’s also good to be extra careful not to be preoccupied with trivial thoughts and opt to structure attention and ideas instead. It will help in becoming more organisation-oriented, less incongruous, and obtain an overall positive disposition.

 

It’s best to focus time and effort on enriching the mind with knowledge and wisdom. Strive to make learning a big part of your life. Active learning is the way to go! Consider getting involved in more meaningful activities that will allow you to process, retain and review information a lot better than usual. This way, you will become more engaged and easily absorb the things that you need to learn in a shorter span of time.

 

“We now accept the fact that learning is a lifelong process of keeping abreast of change. And the most pressing task is to teach people how to learn.”



― Peter Drucker

 

“What I've come to know is that in life, it's not always the questions we ask, but rather our ability to hear the answers that truly enriches our understanding. Never, never stop learning.”



― Lester Holt



When it comes to learning, a person’s journey is unique and can never be compared to others. Also keep in mind that there is always room for mistakes. No matter how thorough and meticulous you are, you won’t be able to completely avoid mistakes. It’s always going to be a part of the equation. Somehow, failure allows you to see things from a different perspective and gain insight into the entire situation. As we get older, we accumulate experiences that we can use them to guide us in facing the future with confidence and enthusiasm.

 

“The truth is that we can learn to condition our minds, bodies, and emotions to link pain or pleasure to whatever we choose. By changing what we link pain and pleasure to, we will instantly change our behaviors.”



― Tony Robbins

 

“To make no mistakes is not in the power of man; but from their errors and mistakes the wise and good learn wisdom for the future.”



― Plutarch

 

“In youth we learn; in age we understand.”



― Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

NYresolution-Feb2019-v3.png

If you think resolutions are so cliche, then perhaps you need to think again! When a year ends and a new one begins, your mind is drawn to preparation and planning. You feel optimistic that it’s going to be a fresh new year full of promises and hope. It certainly is the best time to make changes in various areas of your life.


The tradition of writing down all the things that we want to achieve for the rest of the year usually happens in the first week of January. Now that we're approaching the end of the month, the big question is, are you still upholding your resolutions? We start really strong and determined, however, when February comes, we start to fizzle… but why?

Most people fail to commit to their resolutions due to extreme pressure or lack of motivation and discipline. As the saying goes “The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak” - The intention to change wavers very quickly due to a form of resistance called inertia.

The law of inertia is Sir Isaac Newton’s first law and it states that "A body at rest will remain at rest, and a body in motion will remain in motion unless it is acted upon by an external force." As humans, we are also influenced by inertia - we continue to tread the same path throughout our lives unless other forces alter our course. Therefore, if we would like to change for the better, then we should find that “greater force” that will positively alter the direction of our life inertia.

Here are some of the things you can do to accelerate your success in 2020:


Tackle one resolution at a time

Don’t beat yourself up! Change requires time. Start slowly and work toward changing one thing at a time. It’s best to make small lifestyle changes every day until it already feels like it’s a natural part of your routine. Read more about Game-changing Habits to Supercharge Your Life.

Trust Yourself

Develop your self-confidence. Believe that you can make excellent decisions and you have the ability to improve no matter what your current circumstances are. Your thoughts will eventually manifest into actions so you have to guard your mind against negative thoughts. Click here to learn how to solve the confidence gap.

Be Flexible and Adaptive

If your plan is not working, review and tweak it if necessary. Always be open to suggestions and embrace new ideas. You need to adjust yourself to meet the needs of your situation or current environment.

“I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”

—  Jimmy Dean

 

Treat each day as another chance to start over.

 

“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day-in, and day-out.

—  Robert Collier

 

Write a Letter to Your Future Self

Grab a pen and paper, reflect and write down your thoughts, seal and open it at a future date. Your letter may contain words of validation, reassurance, and encouragement. Try to picture yourself a year, 2 years or 5 years from now and outline what you want to achieve in that timeframe. This could be a great way to make your dreams happen. Write a note to your future self today and you will be amazed to discover how much you’ve changed (or not) over the years.

MotivateToInitiate.png

No matter how routine-oriented we think daily life is, still each waking day is unique and can never be repeated. One factor that causes the uniqueness of a single day is an individual’s level of motivation. There are dips as well as peaks. But despite how diverse the latitudes are, regardless of how challenging the circumstances are, we must be relentlessly willing to work hard and never let our motivation sink into the deep end.

 

“People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.”




― Zig Ziglar



Break a sweat. Being motivated and trying to keep the momentum going is never an easy thing to do. Get occupied with activities that are worth doing, and at the same time be discerning by making sure that all your objectives are aligned to your core values. Constantly ask yourself, what's most important to you? Define it. If this is still unclear, make it your mission to find out what it is. When you finally discover it, make sure to always keep it in good shape.

 


“Wanting something is not enough. You must hunger for it. Your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome the obstacles that will invariably come your way.”




― Les Brown



Use accountability to motivate to initiate exciting new ventures. Set sail for new horizons. Be an overcomer. Unceasingly seek to enhance performance. Make it an active part of who you are for it's an important element of the process - of your journey to success. Consciously put yourself in places of peace and clarity to become more discerning and make better decisions in life. Doing so will further improve your self-esteem and will accelerate your goals and growth.

 

“Sometimes when you fail, it allows you the opportunity to grow more motivation and get more intense about your training.”




― Abby Wambach

CompellingVision-Dec2019-v2.png

 

When we establish an effective vision, we also make plenty of room for innovation and development. All excellent concepts and ideas are started by people with a compelling vision. It’s even much better when you share that vision with like-minded individuals. A shared strong vision among employees and managers is a growth enabler that takes different companies and organisations into higher levels of success in the workplace.

 


“Create a compelling vision, one that takes people to a new place, and then translate that vision into a reality.”




― Warren Bennis




“All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.”




― Brian Tracy



Limited vision prevents you from doing what you want to do. Perhaps your current situation is what’s hindering you from pursuing something you really want. Another thing that may be holding you back is fear. When you feel like you’re not moving forward, gently remind yourself that you are aiming for progress and not perfection. If you do not have a vision yet, create one! It doesn’t matter whether it’s groundbreaking or simple because you should only care about one thing - to make that vision real.

 


“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.”




― Joel A. Barker



Dare to dream and leave no room for doubts and fears. Do your best to meet responsibilities and discard excuses. When you encounter distractions, refocus. When you feel disheartened, use self-motivation techniques to get yourself back on track. Hardship and struggle are always a part of life so we have to develop the mental toughness to be prepared in any given situation. Start positioning yourself for success. Take control of your future today!

 


“If you have a vision, do something with it.”




― Anthony J. D'Angelo




“It takes someone with a vision of the possibilities to attain new levels of experience. Someone with the courage to live his dreams.”



― Les Brown

ThankYou-Dec2019.png

The two short and simple words ‘thank you’ are frequently used but somehow their true essence is not understood and their real impact on our lives is not fully realised. This act of gratitude is not only encompassed as a practice of etiquette and good manners but actually goes far beyond that. It’s more than a discipline, it’s a lifestyle.

 

Expressing gratitude doesn't necessarily have to be grandiose. Even small gestures are enough and at times can be more meaningful and make the greatest impact, especially when shown with genuineness and sincerity. Being appreciated, valued and respected is important to everyone so choose to practice gratitude every day and we will certainly improve all our relationships whether professional or personal.

 

While saying the phrase ‘thank you’ means a lot to the people we say it to, at the same time, it’s also incredibly rewarding. We get to unlock a lot of benefits such as improved health, higher confidence levels, more patience and motivation - overall, a positive mindset. Aside from acknowledging others, we also need to pay attention to ourselves. One way to do this is by means of self-affirmation. Be kind to yourself as much as you are to others. Give yourself a pat on the back for all the hard work and goals you have achieved.

 


“Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it.”




― Ralph Marston




“Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for.”




― Zig Ziglar




“Everyone wants to be appreciated, so if you appreciate someone, don't keep it a secret.”




― Mary Kay Ash




“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.”




― Brian Tracy




“Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is going to determine how you're going to live your life.”




― Joel Osteen
