Fear of Success...It is a Real Thing

fear Aug 02, 2021

Summary

How can succeeding at a high level be a bad or fearful thing?  However, what we know is that there are many amazing people, maybe even you that fear success at some level.  People that have so much to offer but very likely stand in the shadows and do not contribute when their opinions or ideas could revolutionize a company or take them or their peers to a new level of accomplishment.

If this is you or someone that you know, then you may be able to understand.  If you are one that thinks that this is not a real thing, then listen and open up your mind to the possibility that not all people embrace success and strive for more of it.  All of us probably know at least one or two people that struggle with this and we don’t even know it.  We have possibly just looked at them as great support or as not being as driven as others, when in fact they are bursting with more knowledge and dreams than we can imagine. They give the impression that being a...

Summary

  1. Acknowledge your Emotions. .Understanding what you are feeling is the first step to being able to take the necessary steps to learn from it and put into play the actions needed to come out ahead.

  2. See rejection as proof that you are excelling and pushing the limits.  When people reject others for who they are or what they believe in, it is often from being ignorant or because they have been made uncomfortable.  This is a good sign that you are thinking at a higher level or venturing outside the norms.  This is good, this leads to growth and new discoveries.

  3. Feel compassion for yourself. Understand that this is a process and rejection is part of it.  Do not be overly critical of yourself or your hurdles.  Giving permission to learn and fail along the way.

  4. Rejection does not become who you are.  Believe in yourself and your dreams and goals.  Your vision is what defines you, not the...

Summary

Here are 4 types of fear that often stop people from taking that next step.

Number 1 - Is the Fear of ruin -   If I don’t get this correct it is going to ruin my life forever.  Or I could make a fool of myself. I could ruin my reputation or ruin this relationship.   Many times, those are onetime events that we move on from.  By pushing through these fears, we learn how to deal with it and process it.  This allows us to grow and to deal with the next challenge differently, don’t focus on what you have allowed to be a huge disaster in your mind.

 

Number 2 is Rejection - She won’t love me, they will laugh at me, they will think I’m stupid, that’s ok. You don’t need their permission to grow and succeed. We have all been rejected but eventually it won’t matter.  We move on and look back and it has no effect on what you do today when you choose...

Busy Does Not Always Mean Productive

Summary

 

We all know what busy looks like.  It is piles of papers, phone to the ear, someone wanting our time and stuffing a sandwich in your face while you drive to an appointment and try to get the mayonnaise off your shirt that dripped on there, no doubt while you were changing lanes.   You can’t argue that you are busy, but not so productive.  I know you can picture that.  You may look like a cartoon character.

Here are some sure signs of non-productivity.

#1 – You are always putting out a fire.  You know what this looks like.  Someone has an issue, you stop what you are doing, stop projects and try to solve whatever emergency someone has thrown at you.  This now results in your clients being put on the back burner and eventually they know it and they give up on calling or emailing because they know you won’t respond.  

#2 – You are exhausted but have no idea what you did...

Summary

How to change your weeks into more focused, productive time through goals and must do’s for the week.  Understand a little bit about why you are or are not productive.  Being focused and productive has been researched for years and years and the same results keep emerging. Many people have not made the commitment to changing their habits and therefore they find that their production has not increased. Unfortunately they can actually take a step backwards as more and more obligations and distractions enter their world.

The good news is these are not changes that work for a handful of people.  They will work for everyone on the planet, but they will take mental strength and discipline.  The good news is like any habit or addiction, after a few weeks of doing this it will feel weird if you don’t do it.  Once your mind does that reset with new focus, you will begin to feel that something is missing or...

Productivity Tips when Working from Home

Summary


1. Set yearly, quarterly, monthly, weekly goals. Without goals you have no path. There must be a clear target. What must happen this week. What are we after this week? You must know what you want. No clarity, no change…no goals, no growth. Workplace doesn’t matter.

2. Friday Finisher list – must happen by Friday. This is set by Monday. All must be completed. Non- negotiable. Completed for the week and the year will fall into place

3. Block time – Each project is blocked giving you structure which gains you freedom. It is not as constraining as you might think. 35-50 minute time frame in high performance studies. Don’t do anything else but that project. No email, social media. The more committed to this you can be, the higher level of success you will have.

4. Hourly breaks – 50 minute timer to take a short break, water, food, exercise 2-5 minutes. Highest producers take a break every 52 minutes....

Gaining Clarity - Revisited

Summary   

Sometimes small things are not really small at all; the mystery of word clarity is one of them. Clarity is the quality of being certain and definite. This seems simple, however, when it comes to our practical lives, achieving it is not as easy as it seems. Clarity is one of the prevalent characteristics of highly accomplished individuals. It refers to being clear about what matters the most and holds your happiness, passion, and joy in it. Achieving clarity means knowing the meaning, intensity, and level of what you are doing, why you are doing it, and what you really want to do.

After much research, I have summed up two strategies to unlock this mystery.

  1. First, wander through your personal and professional life and enlist what are the most crucial areas of your life you want to master. Evaluate and rate your performance in these areas from 1 to 10 regularly.
  2. Design a clear path with the...

Summary 

 There are no quick fixes, commitment and consistency is the name of the game.  But If you do these things you will not even recognize your business 30 days from now as you will be firing on all cylinders and amazed at how content you are feeling with how things are running.   You will feel so much more in control than you likely have in a very long time.

 Technology and social media have once again stepped it up and driven society even further into a cold non-communicative state, go back in time and look at how people used to get business.  They met strangers, and formed friendships based on trust and integrity.  They shook hands and met for drinks or bonded on the golf course. In short they networked. People would meet, relate and trust. Fast forward to the present and we have gotten used to all the cool toys and new ways to communicate. while relationships were once built around conversations...

Done by One

 Summary

Change is not easy, and you must be deeply committed to doing the work to get the results you desire. You must be consistently working to achieve your goals.  That is because this is the key to any success or change in habits.  They must be done consistently for an extended period.  If the consistency chain is broken the results are never realized at the level that we hope.  The good news is that we can always try again, and we must.  But the difference is we must do it with conviction. Do not allow yourself to be defeated by one setback. Use your wins to help move yourself forward.

Done by 1.  The HPX coaching group introduced the catchy name.  Practice the concept for a while and when you achieve success scream out “done by 1” and walk out the door. You nailed it!  Work as hard as you can to be awesome, you can do it.  Just decide that you will do it and move...
