sunset-beach-people-sunrise-40815

There are 8 powerful transformations, habits, patterns or things that extraordinarily successful people do, which will help you get the best version of yourself.

1.- They reprogram and understand how the mind works.  Your internal dialogue, knowing how to communicate with your mind is vital.

2.- They have a powerful mind control of the images they project and the words they say to themselves.

Your mind only responds to two things:

  • To the images, you make in your head
  • To the words, you say to yourself

3.- They are familiar (accustomed) with the unknown. Your primitive brain always returns to what is familiar, the detail is when:

  • Known = Negative
  • Unknown = Positive

This is why people (including myself) get stuck in the comfort zone and mediocrity, avoiding doing the unknown for fear of failure or fear of change.

4.- They do what they don’t like or hate first. The secret to success is doing what scares you first or to perform first those difficult tasks that are often left for tomorrow or postponed (procrastination).

5.- They take imperfect mass action – Executing or taking action every day in the direction of your goals is the key and the habit you have to develop.

6.- They delay instant (immediate) gratification for long-term (future) benefits. You have to love and enjoy the process.

7.- They know and have the primordial belief of “I Am Enough“. It is about knowing that YOU ARE SUFFICIENT, that God has given you EVERYTHING to succeed in life.

This will allow you to love yourself and regain your self-confidence.

8.- They can deal with rejection and criticism. If you want to succeed in life, you have to be immune to rejection and criticism.

Do you want to win in 2020?

Of course!

2020-PUBLICIDAD

If you want to have the best year and the start of the greatest decade of your life. You should focus on the following goals (I recommend you to check the first two Goals for winning in 2020).

3.- Block time for social networks.

It means you should never pick your phone randomly and scroll through Instagram, TikTok, Facebook. Also, ever you should never just randomly pick your phone to check email.

Let me put this in perspective, for example, the average daily time spent only on Facebook is 58 minutes, according to a study by SimilarWeb.

Time on facebook

The power to spend 58 minutes during a year only on Facebook is equal to 44 workdays in a year.

Did you know about this? Are you surprised?

This is so simple, no matter if you are an influencer on social media or building a brand for your business or have a personal brand, you should never pick your phone randomly and scroll through social media, you have to schedule it. Just not waste time!

4.- Every day you need to ask yourself the following question. If I had to double… the thing I am doing what would I do? How?

beautiful-businesswomen-career-caucasian-601170

The mentality and importance of asking how would I dramatically increase this thing will force you to realize what is essential and what is not essential to work with excellence daily and be more productive. The idea is to delegate the things that let you focus on another thing.

5.- Find a mentor, a tribe or a mastermind group.

The environment is so vital and very important for your success. Let me remember to Jim Rohn “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with”.

You should talk with leaders (people that are where you want to be) every single week about your performance, goals, strategies, mindset, performance towards those goals.

Goals for winning in 2020

The simplest thing for winning in this new decade is to have a higher intention and deeper discipline. However, you should build habits around these goals.

1.- Quarterly, monthly, weekly and daily goals.

You should never start a Monday without clarity about what happens by Friday. Otherwise, you are going to lose a lot of time. Keeping a schedule is so important. Don’t just make goals, plan time to make progress towards them.

female-865110_1920

Daily you need to ask yourself, what are the primary things that would I love to achieve?

Keep in mind always to execute or take action!

 2.- Morning work preparation.

Even if your day is already scheduled, you need to look at your goals for the day and ask this simple question.

How could I fulfill this day with excellence?

Remember the motivational quote “Good – Better – Best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best”. This commitment to continuous improvement should inspire all strive to improve ourselves every day.

The idea is literally to look at the day know what you want of the day and then close your eyes and visualize the successful completion of the day. It means to visualize, think or meditate on each of the major activities of the day and ask yourself, how could I do that with real authenticity and excellence?

The mission is to have mindfulness, visualization, thoughtfulness about how you are going to win the day.

Kenichi Ohmae on Strategy

Kenichi-OhmaeMarietta — Kenichi Ohmae has been called, “Mr. Strategy,” for his innovative writings on corporate strategy and his creation of “The 3 C’s” business concept: 1) Customer, 2) Competitors, and 3) Corporation. His 1982 book entitled, “The Mind of the Strategist,” was a game changer in the world of organizational development for its insightful wisdom on how to identify the customer’s needs, evaluate the strengths of the company, and overcome competition. His comparisons of Japanese company structure vs. US companies strategic development have improved the way we do business globally and how growth has brought cross-cultural understanding as we all evolve into a global economy through technological improvements. Mr. Ohmae has held teaching positions at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, MIT, UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs and Stanford University, along with others. Check out his recent work here. kenichi-ohmae2

The EvE Methodology (Effort vs. Effectiveness)

Marietta — The EvE methodology is something I developed myself during a difficult and challenging project implementation for a large technology firm with a fast-growing Internet startup customer with huge hurdles to overcome.

I coined it, “Effort versus Effectiveness,” or EvE because we had over 100 tasks to accomplish in less than 48 hours! So I had the teams list the highest priority items in groups of ten. Then we took the TOP 10 and accomplished the top three first, then reshuffled the remaining seven until we were done, then moved on to the next ten items.  We got it done on time and under budget. Have you heard the age-old rhetorical question, “How do you eat an elephant?” The answer is: “One bite at a time.” If you feel overwhelmed by lots of tasks and not enough time to complete everything, try the EvE method: Prioritize, Reshuffle, “Do It” and Move On to the next task list. efficiency-wordcloud

Act As If It Were Already So

Marietta – I know this sounds sort of “ZEN” and all, but an old friend (whom we will call “Pure Energy”) gave me some great advice everyone should adopt.  When making a goal or setting an objective, act as if it has already happened.

For example, say you want to lose 20 pounds. Instead of making tons of plans and crazy exercise goals that you will probably never keep, start acting today like you have already lost the 20 pounds and let your new food choices and daily routines make you healthy.  This can be applied to almost everything.  Start living like you have already achieved your goals, which in your mind, you have.  Try it and let me know how it works out. #NcourageXcellence

The two most important things to have for success. 

scholarships

Marietta, GA  Whether in school or your career, the two most important things to focus on for success according to Father Malachi Matin is:

  1. Critical thInking, and
  2. Effective communication

Why are these two things interrelated? Being able to speak and communicate clearly is crucial for effectiveness while critical thinking makes effort to accomplishment more efficient.

Our education system seems to have drifted away from these two pillars of knowledge. We can also point to numerous instances where people have enjoyed extraordinary success accomplishing these two areas without a formal degree.

Friend, I urge you to develop these two skills and put them into practice. Give of your knowledge freely and encourage excellence in everyone you come into contact with.

Doodling: A Frivolous or Productive Activity?

200249351-001The Applied Journal of Cognitive Psychology conducted a 2009 study that has shed a new light on the habit of doodling.  As part of the study, researcher Jackie Andrade played a lengthy voicemail to the group of volunteers.  The first group was asked to doodle during the course of the message, while the second group was instructed to simply listen to the recording. Interestingly, the group of doodlers remembered 29% more details than the other group.

City University of New York psychology professor Jesse Prinz claims “doodling isn’t just a distraction from boredom- it may actually keep us from daydreaming and zoning out altogether. Mindless drawing [is]…a way to take all those things that distract you, all those subjects that you ruminate on, and clear them away [to] open this space where information can get in”.

So the next time you find yourself stuck in a long meeting or watching a lengthy informational video, embrace your creative side and doodle away!

The below video segment expands upon the above research study and discusses how casual doodling can improve our daily memory and comprehension:

 

Peter Drucker on Encouraging Excellence

Post Capitalist SocietyKennesaw- Peter Drucker emphasized simplicity for decades.  Part of his genius was the ability to take complex problems and break them down into simple observations that can be analyzed.  “A turnaround requires abandoning whatever does not perform and doing more of what does perform”. Post-Capitalist Society

His message to us is to improve effectiveness by concentrating more on what works.  Can’t get much simpler than that.

Encourage excellence by helping others focus on improving their strengths.

Using Color Psychology to Improve Your Business

Color PsychologyEnvironmental psychologist Sally Augustin, Ph.D., teaches individuals and businesses how to use color to help them achieve their goals. Whether you’re a supervisor looking to renovate your store, or a manager deciding what color to paint the office, color psychology can help us in our pursuits for success.

According to Augustin, the color of a wall can actually influence the way a person perceives temperature.  For instance, cool colors like blue, green, and light purple have a tendency to make us believe it is colder, while warmer colors such as yellow, red, and orange can cause us to think it is warmer.  Business owners can use this philosophy to their advantage by saving on heating and cooling costs.  If you are based in a colder environment, painting a waiting room a warm color might cause others to think it is a few degrees warmer than it really is.  While you should always keep your thermostat at a reasonable and safe temperature, it may still allow you to keep the temperature a few degrees lower.

The color green has been linked to broader thinking and creativity! I LOVE creative writing, so maybe this is one of the reasons I love this color?  According to Augustin, “There is a positive association between nature and regrowth” when it comes to the color green.  Likewise, Augustin argues that painting a work area green could help your employees be more productive.

Did you know that red sports cost more to insure? Forbes.com contributor Amy Morin writes, “When humans see the color red, their reactions become faster and more forceful”.  Yet, this burst of energy, though powerful, is only momentary and red ultimately reduces our analytic thinking.

University of Rochester psychology professor Andrew Elliot maintains that “athletes are more likely to lose when they compete against an opponent wearing red, and students exposed to red before a test are likely to perform worse”.

Red has long been connected with concentration difficulties and feelings of defeat due to our memories of teachers using red pen to mark up our papers and tests.

While yellow usually isn’t a popular color, research surveys have shown the color blue to be the most preferred color among large groups.  Historically, when our ancestors saw the color blue like a clear blue sky or a watering hole, it was a good sign.  Painting an office building blue, therefore, is “likely to satisfy the majority of the people”.

What colors can you incorporate in your office to encourage excellence in others?
