The task for the next week
- Select two features that you want to develop in yourself but choose them by priority – what do you think you need to change or develop as soon as possible? Write them down
- Understand why do you need those changes for. This is very important because in some cases you can find alternative ways of reaching that goal
- Describe the final goal for those two features. How should you look or feel after reaching that? Will you become stronger, more confident? How would you feel with those improved features or skills?
- If you have some ideas about milestones -write them down as well
- Final and most important question. How do you think you can reach those goals? Do you see any ways of doing this? Where can you get more information about that and whom can you speak with?
- Starting this podcast I had a goal to make some intro. And I decided to create three different episodes which bring you more awareness about your current life. You have a chance to look on your life in a different angle
- “According to Wikipedia Neuro-linguistic programming is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created in the 1970s in the United States. Worth checking, good tools are there. But be careful, don’t believe in “magical pills””
- To become a successful person you should do a lot of homework
- The idea of being someone else, being a better version of myself, has been staying in my head since reading that book. It’s not about the book, it’s about real opportunities
- I understand that effectiveness should be one of my unconscious behavioral patterns – not to keep effectiveness every time in my mind. That’s why I’m practicing constantly in it having role models
- The question is – do we need to change something in ourselves? Or it’s ok to be who we are till the rest of our lives. Are you comfortable with frustration in a relationships and boring job?
- Stop bombarding yourself with all those doubts! Do you think that after your twentieth or thirtieth your life is over?
- “Do you know that average life expectancy in the US is 81 year? That means that the average person lives 81 years. So if you are in your thirties, should you still spend fifty more years giving up changing something? Isn’t it too early to give up?”
- Please think for a while about those moments when you regretted that you are not that kind of a person, or even now you know such people who have those great skills that you don’t have
- You can change yourself. Doesn’t matter how old you are and what is your past experience. And if you feel at some point uncomfortable with the current situation you SHOULD make some changes
- “Here is an interesting thing: most of you know that axiom that to have different features you should bear with those. IT IS WRONG. You can obtain most of skills and features that others have. Like self-confidence, appearance, body features, and so on”
- “I was excited about people who are able to motivate themselves for achieving different goals related to physical activities. I got up a nerve, practiced and right now I have my personal record in plank and our team won the first place on hiking competition two years ago”
- This is about making a better version of us. And the process of becoming that better version can bring us joy
- When someone has some talents given as granted he rarely focused on that. And this is the moment when people who don’t have that feature yet, have benefits. Because they are ready to invest their time and energy to develop that
- “If you think that you have already tried everything, stop right here! Please turn on your critical thinking to 100% and think again. Did you have enough motivation while doing that. Was there enough support for you at that moment? And all the information available?”
