Success Through Marshall Goldsmith´s AIWATT

Q3P6NCT23EFor you to be successful in making a particular change, it´s important that you are both motivated to change and are confident about making that specific change.

“We are geniuses at coming up with reasons to avoid change. We make excuses. We rationalize. We harbor beliefs that trigger all manner of denial and resistance. As a result, we continually fail at becoming the person we want to be.”

The words are those of leadership guru and mentor Marshall Goldsmith. In the manifesto “AIWATT and the Empty Boat” he shares a simple technique for becoming the person you want to be. You can get the manifesto here, AIWATT


Create Deep Trusting Relationships For Success

girls-839809_1280The concept of reaching out to others for support isn´t about changing who you are. It´s about enlisting the help and advice of others to help you become the best you that you can be.

These are the words of author Keith Ferrazzi, in “Who´s Got Your Back”. Regardless of our professional – or personal – role, we all need feedback and advice from individuals that we trust. As individual beings, we can not possibly know it all, nor do we need to. Getting feedback from someone who is not as close to a situation as we are ourselves, and by that can be objective, is the action of a wise person.

Improve Your Chances Of Success In Life

success-784350_1280Your success in life depends, in part, on your attitude. There are easy ways though to embrace a more positive attitude and improve your chances of sustainable success.

Start the Day Right
Start each day in the right direction by choosing to wake up with a smile. Eat a good breakfast to give yourself a good, positive foundation for the day. Remind yourself that life is short; make the most of each and every day. Not only will this help you to have a positive attitude, but it will help you to feel more alert and focused throughout your day.

Choose the Right Words
The words that you use have an impact on whether you have a positive or negative attitude. Use the following phrases in your daily conversations:
– “I have a positive attitude about my life.”
– “I will find a solution.”
– “I can do it.”
– “I can be successful in anything that I choose to do.”
Using positive phrases helps to put you in a positive mindset.

Keep Positive Company
Do you associate with people who have a negative attitude? If your friends have a negative attitude about life, chances are good that you will, too. If you feel that your friends or acquaintances are pulling you down, try to separate yourself from them or learn to recognize when their negative attitude is affecting you. You may consider looking for friends who will encourage you to have a more positive attitude.

Be Thankful
Take an inventory of your life and learn to appreciate what you have. Family, friends, job, housing, food, and education are all things to be thankful for. Remember that no matter how difficult life may get, there are still things to be thankful for. This can have a profound impact on your attitude, about work and other aspects of your life. If you continue to have difficulty seeing the positive aspects of your life, consider doing volunteer work with those who are less fortunate. This can help you to put things into perspective.

Deal with Negative Triggers
What situations make you upset, angry, or frustrated? When you identify what these situations are, you can take steps to work through them. If it is a friend that is confrontational, deal with the situation. If it is a situation that causes you high levels of stress, work through your issues regarding the situation. If there is a situation that is unavoidable, plan to go into it with a positive attitude. Tell yourself that you will not allow it to affect you negatively. Try to make the best of it.

Make the Change!
If you recognize that your attitude is negatively affecting your road to sustainable success, take action to reverse it. Refuse to be dragged down by a negative attitude. This may be a difficult thing to do, but it is worth it. If you need help with moving toward a more positive attitude, seek the help of a professional life or leadership coach.

1-Minute Playbook: Take Control Of Your Time

waiting-410328_1280Poor time management is simply a bad habit. You can learn to organize and control your time better by following some simple tips listed below:

– If a task takes less than five minutes, do it right away. If it takes longer, put it on a list. Keep a written to-do list and incorporate the “less than five minute” strategy.

– For a couple of days, take an inventory of how you spend your time to find out where and how you’re wasting time. Write down everything you do today and reflect – is there something you are wasting time on?

– Cut big jobs into small chunks. Order the chunks by importance. Work on one chunk at a time. Think of a large project or task you need to complete. Break it into small chunks. Does the project or task feel more manageable?

– If part of your day involves routine repetitive tasks, keep records of how long they take and then try to do them faster. Time one repetitive task you complete on a daily basis. Work on completing this task quicker each day.

– Learn to differentiate between the important and the urgent. What’s important is not always urgent. What’s urgent is not always important. On your written to do list, write an “I” next to important tasks, a “U” next to urgent tasks and a “I/U” next to important and urgent tasks. Now prioritize your list.
