High Performance Habits to Create

High Performance Habits to CreateThere are a few times of the year when we see a considerably higher amount of articles on dieting, eating better meals, health consciousness and similar topics. The early part of the year in January and February are one of those times of the year.

For example there might be something such as this:

“Five Tips To Have Your Lost Weight Stay Lost”

TIP #1   –   Keep records of everything you put in your mouth to eat, everyday.

TIP #2   –   Have a consistent sleep schedule as this will help to maintain hormone and blood sugar levels.

TIP #3   –   Workout and Exercise to get your heart rate up every single day.

TIP #4   –   Plan your day in advance so you know when you will workout, when you will eat and what you will eat for meals and snacks.

TIP #5   –   Keep yourself organized as this one step will help you to maintain the weight loss you worked so hard to achieve.

Have you read any of these articles? The tips absolutely are helpful advice for keeping your weight off if that was your goal and you achieved it. It appears to me similar tips as listed would work well for success in your business as well.

This might look something like this:

  • TIP #1

    Ever wonder how some people get so much done each day? Write down every single thing you spend one minute or more on every single day. At the end of each week and each month review this item and the totals of where you are spending your time.
  • TIP #2 

    Each and every night strive to sleep a full six or seven hours or more if you need it. A full night’s rest will permit you to focus on what you need to accomplish each and every day. Try your best to have a set schedule of when you go to bed.
  • TIP #3 

    Every day either go out for a walk, swim or conduct some form of exercise. It is great for your body, and the increased heart rate and blood flow will be refreshing. You will return from this effort with a refreshed sense of ‘ready to go to work’.
  • TIP #4

    Plan your day. Eat properly throughout your day. Have a set schedule each and every day to avoid time consuming activities which were not on the schedule. It is critical to properly nourish yourself throughout the day in order to achieve peak performance all day long.
  • TIP #5 

    Have a method to your madness and get yourself organized and stay organized. This one item will save you more time and effort than any one single tip.

Hope you see the point. The right habits will carry you through everything in life.

Create a Mindset Renewal for Mindset Success

Are you interested in going places you have not been to before in your mindset, your attitude and your belief system? A mindset renewal, if you will. If you are ready, let’s do it and go there. Let’s develop a way to stay in the mindset you want and need to succeed.

Let’s discuss some of the foundation and history of your mindset before we begin. Our minds are programmed to think negative thoughts. The majority of us, beginning at age five, heard “No” or “Don’t do that” more often than any positive statements by a large margin. Some examples: “Don’t cross the street”, “Don’t touch that, you will break it”, “Don’t eat that until later”, or “Don’t wear that now, we are going to visit…

These negative statements were constantly stated to us by a factor of eight or nine times vs. any positive feedback or positive statements we heard from anyone – ever. Every single day, for many years, negative statements outnumbered the positive statements. During our time in school this pattern continued, “No Talking”, “No loitering here”, “No Parking Here”, or “No loud music allowed”.

There are multiple purposes for the utilization of positive affirmations. One of these is to overcome the negative programming instilled in our minds for years. This will take persistent and consistent work. Positive affirmations provide a pep talk to each of us whenever we need it. By taking the time to plan ahead and create a few positive affirmation cards, and carrying these with us or placing them in strategic locations we will always have a positive affirmation to read aloud. This is our self talk pep talk. You might place these on your iPhone or other electronic device as well.

Here are a few options for you when it comes to positive affirmations. If you feel you are not ready to write your own positive affirmations, think of a few names of people you find inspiring and utilize their quotes for your positive affirmations.

An example would be a quote from Jim Rohn, “Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.”

Now you rewrite this quote to become your positive affirmation, “I am living my happiness every single moment of every single day.”

Another example might be this quote from Orison Swett Marden, “Don’t wait for extraordinary opportunities. seize common occasions and make them great.”

You might rewrite this quote to become your positive affirmation, “I will find opportunities in everything I experience throughout the day today, and every day.”

My suggestion is to create a few dozen of these positive affirmations in your first month of practicing this mindset renewal. Read these aloud or to yourself, often throughout the day. You will feel better about your day and your approach to your day as more time is invested in this practice.
