Over four years and going
strong!  With over 800,000 downloads from
over 9 countries and 5 continents’…. this is the Warrior Mind Podcast.

In this episode of the
Warrior Mind Podcast I’m going to discuss the downside of procrastination, even
if you think there is benefit, there’s not.

The Downside of
Procrastination

Procrastination is when you
put something that you should do now off to do it at a later time or date. It’s
a common characteristic with every person to delay doing something. However,
there is times that when we procrastinate; we don’t get to do that thing at
all. Among the most common procrastinating statements include;

  • I’ll start on my new fitness program when the
    weather improves,
  • I’ll start on my diet plan after having this
    birthday cake,
  • I’d love to visit my aunt, but I have a
    jam-packed weekend,
  • I’ll teach my kids about the dangers of drug
    abuse soon but not today,
  • We’ll do the extended holiday soon but not
    this year,
  • I’d love to get back to my college classes
    soon but not this semester,
  • My spouse and I will go for a date again but
    not until the kids leave home,
  • I want to start saving but not until I get a
    pay rise,
  • I want to act friendly to them, but I’ll do
    it when they begin being fair as well,
  • I’ll make a will and encourage my Father to
    do so soon,
  • We plan to launch a marketing a plan when our
    sales increase,
  • I love to write that book, but I’ll do it
    next year when I have time,
  • I wish to call my friends, but I’ll do it
    next week when we’re out of school.

More On the Downside of
Procrastination

These are a few of the common phrases you’ll come across from people daily. But what does this procrastination cost you? For many of the people, the price they pay back is far more than expected. It can further result if you not achieving your goals. Let’s consider the consequences you might suffer from some of the above procrastinating examples;

  • You failed to get to your new diet program,
    and therefore you gained more weight,
  • After the weather improved, you looked out
    for a new excuse not to exercise and thus risking your health,
  • Your aunt passed away before you visited her,
  • You’re not able to materialize the extended
    holiday,
  • You didn’t talk to your kids about drug
    abuse, and now your son is an addict,
  • For not taking your college classes, you’re
    still working on a job that you hate,
  • You got divorced since you didn’t have time
    to spend with your spouse,
  • You didn’t get a pay increase, and therefore
    you retired broke for not saving,
  • You still hold on grudges waiting for others
    to be nice,
  • Also, your parents didn’t make a will, and
    much of their properties got wasted on lawyers.
  • You didn’t launch the marketing plan, and as
    a result, your business went bankrupt,
  • Someone took your ideas and wrote a
    successful book since you didn’t take the initiative to write the book
    yourself.
  • You delayed communication, and now you’ve
    very few friends left.

These are as a result of
procrastination. What you need is stop procrastinating and do it now reasons
being you don’t know about tomorrow. Take an example you get diagnosed with
cancer, and the doctors say you have a year left to die. You should take the
initiative to implement your goals so that at the end of the one year, you’ll
be successful.

Do
you think you could have done things differently?

Are there some things that
you put off that if given a chance today you’d do them differently? Among the
reasons why a large group of people holds to procrastinating is the
all-or-nothing mindset. That is, “if you can’t do everything on the list, you
won’t do anything.” That’s being silly in that; people focus on what they cannot
do rather than what they can do. What this does is reduce their levels of
success to increase their frequencies of procrastination.

If you want to do away with
procrastination, the following steps will be of great help,

  • Make a list of all the things you did put off
    getting them done on a later date. Include things you loved to do, and the
    relationships you procrastinated. Note to do it immediately.
  • Review the items to see if you’d admire to do
    them. Pick the ones that fit in your current goals and are meaningful to you.
  • Categorize the list into three groups;
  • Things you want to achieve,
  • Things that you wish you have,
  • Relationships you want to enrich,

 Gain personal knowledge and create
self-awareness as a way of reducing cases of procrastination.

  • Discover the reasons why you did
    procrastinate on doing something on the past and look out on what it did cost
    your life then project on your future.
  • Prioritize your goals so that you don’t feel
    overwhelmed.
  • Pick your first item and attend to it without
    making further procrastination
  • Enjoy the process of achieving new goals.
    Don’t focus only on achieving the goals.
  • Stop Feeling guilty for the things you
    procrastinated on in the past as it’ll cost you more delays
  • Seek help from other people.
  • Celebrate your successes if you want to keep
    the spirit

Much of the things you pick
will not call for much cash. Some of these items might also need fiscal
resources creating a conflict of interest. Take an example; you need to go
somewhere necessary, but the only cash you have is your retirement savings.
When you face such a thing, consider following these rules

Rule1: do not delay on
something you cannot achieve at a later date

Rule 2: If you can replace
your savings in the future, base your decision, not on your longevity but
mortality.

The next thing is to start
taking actions as a priority. However, make your obligations based on your
abilities. Make sure to embrace what life has to offer today. If lack of
resources is the cause of your procrastination, look at what results to the
limited resources.

Final
Verdict

When you look back on
yesterday, you should get a feeling of satisfaction, contented, happy and
fulfilled. Check out on what you did with your time? Did you change your way of
doing things? My advice is that you engage your life fully. Ensure not to make
further mistakes by procrastinating, to limit the damage it costs your life.
Many of us fail in life because we wait for the right time so that we can start
on doing something. Stop waiting as time will never be right, and if you wait
on time, it’s not waiting for you.

The Importance of a Reflective Practice: Warrior Mind Podcast #460

Podcast cover
Read more

Over five years and going
strong!  With over 800,000 downloads from
over 12 countries and 7 continents’…. this is the Warrior Mind Podcast.

In this episode of the
Warrior Mind Podcast I’m going to discuss what a reflective practice is, why it’s
important and how to start your own.

What
Does Reflective Practice Mean?

Basically, reflective practice means reflecting on or
thinking about what you do. In a way, the concept of learning from experience
has a close relationship to reflective practice because it involves thinking
about your actions and deciding to act in a different way next time.

It is part of humans in general, to think about previous
events. However, casual thinking and ‘reflective practice’ are not the same,
conscious effort goes into thinking about occurrences and drawing lessons from
them when it has to do with ‘reflective practice’. Once reflective practice
becomes a part of you, you will benefit from it both at home and at work.

Reflective
Practice as a Skill

Over the years, a lot of scholars have examined the
concept of experiential learning and reflective practice. Chris Argyris, one of
such scholars, propounded the term ‘double-loop learning’ which he used to
explain the idea that when you reflect, you are able to move out of the ‘single
loop’ of ‘Experience, Reflect, Conceptualize and Apply’ into another loop where
you then form a new paradigm and redevelop your ideas so that you can do things
in a different way.

The good news for almost everyone is that they all seem
to share a similar belief that reflective practice is a skill that you can
learn and develop.

Also, scholars agree that reflective practice makes it easier to move from theory to practice—that is, it aids us in delving into theories and applying them to our life experiences in a way that is more organized.  Whether it be ideas that you formed yourself or formal theories associated with academic research. It also motivates us to examine the beliefs and assumptions we have and to see a way of solving our problems.

Enjoy
this podcast on the importance of a reflective practice

Developing
and Making Use of Reflective Practice

What are the steps we can take to develop the critical,
formative and constructive thinking that’s a prerequisite for reflective
practice?

Neil Thompson suggested these six steps in his book,
People Skills:

–Read up those things that relate to the topics you are
interested in learning about and developing.

–Ask people about their way of doing things and their
reasons.

–Watch the happenings around you

–Give attention to your feelings and emotions, how do
they come about and how do you handle the negative ones.

–Talk-let others in your organization know about your
views and experiences.

–Think – make it a habit to see the worth in the time
you spend thinking about the work you do.

What this means is that the thinking is not the only
thing that’s important; an understanding of the theory, the way in which other
people practice it and their ideas are all equally important.

Reflective practice is an activity that you can do
together with others, you don’t have to do it alone. Some social psychologists
even suggest that expressing our thoughts by either writing it down or saying
it out loud is the only way that we can learn. Relating this to those times
when we are alone and feel the need to think out loud suddenly makes that act
sensible. However, what this implies for reflective practice is that thoughts
which remain undeclared, may fade away.

Since instances of shared reflective practice in our busy
workplace like reviews of particular events or appraisal interviews do not
occur everyday, finding an opportunity for shared reflective practice can be
somewhat difficult. Therefore, you have to look for other means that would
enable you articulate your insights.

Keeping a journal of learning experiences does help even
if it feels somewhat phony. Writing down the events and activities that you
involved yourself in everyday and reflecting on each of them to consider the
lessons they taught you and what you should or could have done differently aids
your reflective practice. Besides the aspect of changing, a learning journal
coupled with reflective practice can let you know times in which you did the
right thing.

You might want to follow this simple process shown below
in writing your learning journal. This is just to help you have a good start,
you can start mixing up the steps when you get more experienced.

The
Process of Reflective Learning

Pinpoint one event that occurred in your personal life or
your work place that you feel you could have handled in a better way.

Describe the experience

What took place? Where and at what time did the issue
occur? Is there any other thing you think about the issue?

Reflection

What was your attitude? What were your thoughts? How did
you feel about it? Did any other factor contribute to the issue? What did the
experience teach you?

Theorizing

was there a relationship between your preconceived ideas
and the experience, as in, did you expect the results you got or not? Does it
match any formal theories you know? Is there any behavior you think could have
changed the results you got?

Experimentation

Do you think there’s something you could say, or do now
that would change the results? To avoid having similar outcomes in future, what
actions can you take? What behaviors can you experiment with?

The
Gains of Reflective Practice

Engaging in reflective practice increases
self-awareness—a key aspect of emotional intelligence that helps you understand
others in a better way.  Also, if you
wish to hone your creative thinking skills and be more active when you engage in
activities, reflective practice would help you achieve that.

When you keep a learning journal and use reflective
practice regularly, it will promote relevant discussions about your personal
development and career development. Also, it could provide you with a handful
of examples during interview situations that are based on competency.

Warning

It’s very easy to succumb to pressure and dump reflective
practice; however, under those circumstances, it’s one thing that you should
hold very dear. Spending time on reflective practice means that you’re
concentrating on the most important things—things important to both your family
or your employer.

How to Survive A Personal Transformation: Warrior Mind Podcast #459

Podcast cover
Read more

Over five years and going
strong!  With over 800,000 downloads from
over 12 countries and 7 continents’…. this is the Warrior Mind Podcast.

In this episode of the
Warrior Mind Podcast I’m going to discuss what a personal transformation is and
how the steps to take to survive and thieve this transition.

How to
Survive A Personal Transformation

According
to great philosophers, change is the only constant thing. You can never evade
life changes and whether it’s the beginning or the end of a relationship,
job/career change, starting a family, or loss of a family, transitions are part
of human existence but yet difficult to adapt to. Our lives can be regarded as
‘work-in-progress’, but because we don’t control our future, we don’t know when
to experience our next transition. Surviving personal transition can be
challenging but we, at Transitions Institute are here to help. We provide
professional support to help you manage transitions easily and establish your
goals.

Everyone
desires to experience a life full of joy and satisfaction, have nurturing and
fulfilling relationships, and go beyond self-imposed limitations. However,
things don’t always go as we expect and for you to live the life you desire,
you must go through a transitions process. When coping with changes, it’s
likely to find yourself in a ‘flight, fight or freeze response’. Whether the transformative
event was anticipated or unexpected, desired or not, adapting to change is not
always tough and requires physical and mental energy to adapt to a new set of
circumstances and find a new equilibrium. The following are four phases of the
transitions process that explain how to take control of your life.

Enjoy
this podcast on surviving your personal transformation

Examining
the personal transformation process

Phase 1 – Self-Awareness

The
self-awareness phase examines the relationship you have with the voice in your
head or your thoughts. In most cases, the conversation you have with your inner
self can question you or find fault in everything you do, but with Warrior Mind
Coaching, you’ll learn how to change it to be supportive. Your inner dialogue
shapes and determines your personal reality and once you choose us, we promise
to make a difference in your life by showing you how to alter your inner
conversation easily and replace hesitation and concern with freedom and confidence.

Phase 2 – Self-Acceptance

The second
phase is about self-acceptance; accepting where you’ve come from, where you are
and where you want to be. At Warrior Mind Coaching, I’m committed to providing
you with appropriate tools that will help move your attention from the past to
the future you dream about. In this phase, we help you understand who you are.
Self-Acceptance is not about taking ownership of your strengths and weaknesses,
gifts and limitations; it’s about being responsible for your actions and
embracing your extraordinary, unlimited as well as generative power of who you
are. The world around us is full of challenges and for you to adopt, you must
believe in yourself that you have the power to conquer.

Phase 3 – Self-Generation

In this
phase, we understand that there’s who you are and what people think you are.
We, therefore, help you to interpret who you are for the people around you and
who you are for yourself. By comprehending the nature of yourself, you get in
an environment where you won’t be afraid of experimenting with the change
process and reducing any risks in your path to change. That way, you’ll live a
happy life knowing that the sky’s the limit and that you have all it takes to
face challenges and emerge victorious to explore possible future. Besides,
you’ll be able to create your reality and once you declare your future with
purpose, conviction, and power, your declarations will have power and you’ll
soon find yourself where you’ve always wanted to be.

Phase 4 – Self-Actualization

The fourth phase is all about examining pathways to the future and developing skills and strategies that will get you to the desired destination. At Warrior Mind Coaching, we help you understand that you’re not visualizing and thinking about your future, but you’re indeed living it. For you to keep your future alive, you must design appropriate practices and structures and come up with the right techniques to transform your problems into opportunities and most importantly, learn how to express your intentions and commitments in the right way to support your career, friends, family, and organizations.

Bottom line

Personal
transitions are challenging and whereas some such as getting the first job are
common, others such as changing careers are unique. Life transition is a period
of growth and during this time, you will change for the better. Accept that you
are remarkable and that you can overcome challenges on your way to greatness.
Most importantly, don’t walk this journey alone because I’m here to walk with
you.

Over five years and going
strong!  With over 800,000 downloads from
over 12 countries and 7 continents’…. this is the Warrior Mind Podcast.

In this episode of the
Warrior Mind Podcast I’m going to discuss what the Hero’s’ Journey is, how it
shows up and how to use it for personal development.

Embracing
Your Hero’s Journey

Looking
at people today, you get a sense there is something very different about them
when you compare them to people of even just a few decades ago. There are more
people who appear to have become soulless and even though the work, having a
car and a job and even a strong relationship with a spouse and a connection to
God, there is something missing. You yourself may have a sense of emptiness
inside, even as you are doing the right thing. This may be a feeling that even
as you do the right thing, you don’t feel it.

Another group of people may feel live and the vibrant love and suffering it offers. However, their lives are always in rumbles. For these people, their personal relationships tend to be unsatisfactory and they feel like they are in a trapped place. These people feel isolated from the world and hopeless.

A
third type of person is the person who never knows how to make it in the world,
nor do they understand how to be connected to their soul. These people live an
empty life that has no rewards for them and they never actually discover what
their true purpose is.

Fortunately,
the Hero’s Journey can help everyone to connect with themselves. This is a
narrative as identified respected scholar Joseph Campbell that showcases
religious rituals, storytelling, myths and psychological development. In the
narrative, The Hero goes through a series of deeds to help a specific group of
people. It can be a small group that needs help or an entire civilization whose
survival rests on the success of the hero.

The
hero’s journey is one of the most important pieces of life and those who
partake in it will find that their life ends up being more rewarding than
imaginable. Each of us has our own destiny and when we discover it, we become a
person who feels more deeply connected and rooted, while experiencing a life
that is far more fulfilling.

When
you begin to embrace your hero’s journey, you can experience a decrease in the
suffering that your life currently has. As you continue to live through the
program, you will also find that as your journey becomes more defined, the
happier and more fulfilling your life is going to be.

Enjoy
this podcast on embracing your hero’s journey

The 3 Main Stages of the Hero’s Journey

  • Stage 1: Departure. …
  • Stage 2: Initiation. …
  • Stage 3: Return. …

Step10 Hero’s Journey Steps

  • Step 1: The Ordinary World
  • Step 2: The Call to Adventure
  • Step 3: Cross the First Threshold
  • Step 4: Trials, Friends, and Foes
  • Step 5: Magical Mentor (or the Mentor with
    Supernatural Aid)
  • Step 6: Dragon’s Lair
  • Step 7: Moment of Despair
  • Step 8: Ultimate Treasure
  • Step 9: Homeward Bound
  • Step 10: Rebirth & The Champion’s Return

You will after all, discover who you truly are and that will help you to
become better aligned with your spirit. Many people think of this as a form of
awakening as they find what it is in life that is calling to your heart and
soul. Just keep in mind that what is calling to your soul might not be an easy
decision to make. However, if you always chose the easy road, you wouldn’t be
on the path of a true hero’s journey.

As you begin your hero’s journey, understand that the benefits and all you
find is going to add meaning to your life, but don’t think it will come free.
The unfortunate truth is when there is goodness and light, there will also be
evil and shadows that can be cast. It is up to the hero to remain brighter than
the shadows and to ensure that they take on the shadows and appreciate the
life. While this means there is a price to pay on the journey, the end reward
will always be worth it.

Truly embracing your hero’s journey will mean that you heal the wounds in
your life and allow yourself to accept the gifts you have been given. You can
let your personal relationships, work and other influences positively impact
your life and then share the enrichment that these offer you in the process. In
each of us, is a treasure that is waiting to be discovered and when we open it
and share those gifts with others, we are able to reward those we love and
cherish and to ensure that there is a better experience for all.

In our lives, we will be confronted with things like death. Each time we
face this and challenge our fears, we become stronger and we are able to move
forward on our hero’s journey. This is similar to when a hero in a tale slays
the dragon. When this happens, his community is saved and the risk proves to
save others and to give him a rewarding sense of success.

Today, many people are told they shouldn’t take on the challenges in life
and that causes them to shut down and internalize who they are. This
internalizing instead causes pain and self-destruction and a sense of emptiness
in life. This has led to our culture from being what it should be.

That doesn’t mean we can just jump head first into a situation. Instead, we
first need to begin to take steps on the journey and earn our rites of passage.
Before we know it, we will have achieved a degree of dense and have the ability
to experience a new and rewarding life as we pull from the lessons that are given
us. With each encounter we have, we learn how to emotionally and intellectually
travel through this, until we reach the next level.

How to Avoid Burnout: Warrior Mind Podcast #457

Podcast cover
Read more

Over four years and going strong!  With over 800,000 downloads from over 9 countries and 5 continents’…. this is the Warrior Mind Podcast.

In this episode of the Warrior Mind Podcast I’m going to discuss ways to avoid burnout so that you can consistently make progress on your goals.

Burnout

Burnout is an expression used to refer to a sense of being not able to handle your tasks properly due to the pressure of work. Burnout is usually a condition of long-term fatigue and lack of interest at work and will lead to over-work on a very long time, or by persistent and excessive strain. Although burnout was initially considered to result from excessive stress and work, doctors now feel there is quite a bit more likely to be a component of mood involved.

On the flip side, some people are extremely unlikely to suffer from burnout; however much strain they’re put under, though some might suffer with it without being set below what most people would consider extra pressure.

What is Burnout?

There is no accurate definition of burnout. Even physicians don’t have an exact clinical coding for burnout because its symptoms tend to be quite like people who have depression or other psychological disorders. Individuals contemplating themselves to be experiencing burnout are inclined to be very, very drowsy, and frequently find it hard to make conclusions. They could fight to locate energy for whatever. They might also have problems with other mental health issues like depression however if they don’t realize a condition of clinical mental ailment they might suffer with doubts about their effectiveness or ability, or very low self-esteem.

Burnout and Stress

There is increasing evidence that some amount of stress is effective, and even crucial to a lot of folks to give motivation. But excessive stress, particularly over a lengthy time period, is usually agreed to be awful for you. There are physiological reasons for this. When you’re under stress, the human body creates stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol, the ‘battle, fright or combat’ hormone. These hormones prepare the human body to get rapid and prompt actions, whether that would be to run away or to combat something.

All these hormones evolved, over countless years, to create a response. They contribute to real physiological modifications: increased heartbeat, motion of blood into crucial elements of your body, lack of desire. Having them continuously within your blood is going to get some fairly ‘interesting’ impacts in your long-term well-being. You are likely to be more jumpy, nervous, and frequently over-emotional, also it’s quite wearing on the human physique. No wonder folks afflicted by long-term stress are exhausted and may become unwell. Unattended burnout can result in CFS/ ME which could grow to be a lifelong neurological illness.

CFS or ME?

CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and ME (Myalgic Encephalopathy) are titles for a painful disease that affects millions of individuals globally.

ME/CFS Sufferers may experience the feelings of burnout within extended intervals. Symptoms include decreased concentration and memory, in addition to physical effects like aching joints and intense headaches. If you believe you, or somebody who you know, might have ME or CFS afterward ifs very important to seek medical assistance and be correctly diagnosed. Even though there’s not any cure, there are treatments that might help.

Preventing Burnout

The very first thing to bear in mind is that as soon as you suffer from burnout, the character of the illness means it is quite difficult to do anything about that. Part of the thing is that you’re just too tired to take care of anything. You’re therefore going to fight to create the necessary modifications to increase your own life. And while there’s not any doubt there are people that are considerably more vulnerable to burnout than many others, even the very competent will finally start to struggle. Below are tips to avoiding burnout.

1.     Prevention is Far Better Than Cure

Learn to realize early when you are experiencing stress, and if that stress is beginning to receive a little too much to you, and end up from this circumstance. Ask trusted friends and coworkers that will allow you to recognize your ‘informs’, the manners which you can tell that you are stressed. Many people today snap and become irritable; others move silent. Workout your trend, ensure you see when it occurs, then do something about that.

2.     It’s Up to You

Proof Indicates the many stressful situations are the ones where you believe you are not responsible for the reply to this is to attempt and take charge of your life, at least in tiny ways.

 For Example, attempt to work out exactly what scenarios make you anxious and prevent them. You probably shouldn’t attempt and prevent them completely, as a small strain, and being from your ‘comfort zone’, is excellent for you. However, it may be advisable to not choose a job at which those scenarios will compose the majority of your operating day. Should you wind up in a project like this, and you also begin to and it quite stressful, see that you’re able to negotiate your way into an alternate. If you cannot, you might want to start looking for a different job. Nobody else will do this to you since nobody knows exactly what it is that’s making you worried.

3.     Try to Come up With a Great Work-Life Balance

 One very great approach to prevent stress is to get a fantastic work-life balance. Should you take certain actions to spend time on the job, and much more time with your loved ones, or on private interests, you’ll almost certainly definition become stressed. Work expands to match the moment. Reduce the moment, and you may well realize that you still receive the job done.

4.     Do Something Active

Taking exercise is an excellent way to decrease the probability of burnout. To begin with, individuals that are physically fit are better able to deal with job requirements anyhow and, second, exercise releases endorphins that enable us feel great. It’s important but to not start into a vigorous workout regimen – build up gradually and listen to an entire body.

Bottom Line

Finally, if you think you, or somebody who you know, might be experiencing burnout, it is significant to reach out to other people and seek assist. It might feel as if nothing is going to improve, however searching for assistance is your first step to obtaining it. You should not feel ashamed or embarrassed to speak to your own physician and also for supervisor about how you’re feeling. Do not feel helpless, request help.

In this episode of the
Warrior Mind Podcast I’m going to discuss the importance of and hot to break
out of your comfort zone for peak performance and personal success.

Whereas
routines could be stable and even comforting, they can also be not only
time-confining but also stale. You can never go wrong with the inspirational
messages that keep telling you to get out of your comfort zone, in such
instances. Besides cushioning you from any burnout, you will appreciate how
good this will be for your brain. However, it can be pretty hard to get
yourself out of a routine, and there is plenty of science behind that. It also
explains how to handle the same.

It
is imperative to push the boundaries of your comfort zone, and well, this could
be a big deal at times. But what exactly is the “comfort zone”? Why is it
that we tend to get comfortable with the familiar and our routines? How comes
the glimmer in these routines fades once we find newer and more exciting
things? It would also be helpful to understand the benefits that we derive from
them besides knowing what it takes. Addressing all these variables could be a
daunting task for some people. However, you will learn more as you read with
us!

Breaking Out of Your Comfort Zone

Your
comfort zone is a behavioral space in which all your activities and behaviors
match a specific routine. This pattern plays a vital role in minimizing stress
and various risks. It also provides a sense of mental security too. For this
reason, you will enjoy regular happiness, low anxiety, as well as reduced
stress.

The
concept of the comfort zone first came up in a classic experiment in
psychology. In 1908, two psychologists, Robert M. Yerkes and John D. Dodson,
postulated that a state of comparative comfort creates a steady level of
performance. For maximum performance, however, we need a state of relative
anxiety. That is a state where stress levels are a little higher than usual.
This space, also called Optimal Anxiety, is just outside our comfort zone. With
too much anxiety, our productivity levels are highly likely to drop, and
sharply so.

The
idea of optimal anxiety has existed for quite a long time now. Undoubtedly,
people will often realize mazing results for as long as they choose to push
themselves out of their comfort zone. However, you could end up with adverse
effects if you push too hard. This move will also reinforce the feeling that
challenging yourself is a bad idea. It is only natural for us to return to a
state that is not only comfortable but also free from anxiety. This way, it
becomes relatively hard to get your brain out of the comfort one.

Even
so, your comfort zone is neither a good nor a bad thing. It is a natural state
that most people find appealing. Leaving it results in increased risk and
anxiety, which can have both positive and negative results. Regardless it would
help if you did not demonize your comfort zone as something that holds you
back. We all aspire for that head-space where we are least anxious and
stressed. This way, it becomes easier to process the benefits we get when we
finally leave it.

Optimal
anxiety often assures you of peak mental productivity and performance. Many
people will, however, still consider increased performance and productivity as
a product of working extra. This conclusion comes despite barely understanding
the benefits that come with stepping outside of your comfort zone.

You’ll
be more productive. You should note that comfort usually kills productivity.
With the absence that comes with meeting deadlines and expectations, it is hard
for one to do what is essential to get them along. Besides losing the drive as
well as an ambition to do more, we can fall into a work trap where we fake busy
as a way to stay in our comfort zones. It is by pushing your boundaries that
you will hit your stride sooner and even find smarter ways to work.

It will be easier dealing with new and unexpected changes. Brené Brown, a research professor at the University of Houston, explains that one of the worst things we can do is ignore the existence of fear and uncertainty. Taking risks in a controlled fashion will expose you to that uncertainty in a controlled environment. It will be easier for you to face various challenges in life for as long as you learn how to come out of this comfort zone.

There
will be no hurdle in pushing your boundaries later on. By stepping out of your
comfort zone, a sense of comfort comes with time. As you step out of your
comfort zone, you become attuned to optimal anxiety. Further, productive
discomfort becomes more reasonable for you. For this reason, your will to push
further to maintain your performance is at the peak.

It
will be easier to brainstorm as well as harness creativity. While this could be
a soft benefit, it is relatively common knowledge that seeking new experiences,
skills, and new ideas inspire us and educate us in various ways. These new
things can make us reflect on our old ideas and inspire us to learn more. A
positively scratchy experience can help us brainstorm, see longstanding
problems in a new light, and tackle the challenges we face with new energies.

You
will enjoy so many benefits once you step out of your comfort zone. There is the
overall self-improvement you get through the skills you learn, the new foods
you try, the new country you visit, and that new job too.

How to break out of your comfort zone

It
is great to be outside your comfort zone for as long as you keep your balances
in check.

You
should note that there is a difference between controlled anxiety and that
which people experience day-to-day. Everyone’s comfort zone bears different
characters and effects. Remember, while optimal tension can accentuate your
performance, too much of it can be costly.

Here are some ways to break out of
your comfort zone:

Do everyday things differently. Take a different route to work or
even try a new operating system. This way, you will recalibrate your reality.
Whether the change you make is large or small, it will have a meaningful impact
down the road. Look for the perspective that comes from any change, even if
it’s negative. Do not shy away from things that could put you off.

Take your time making decisions. Often, slowing things down could
compromise your comfort. That happens particularly when you hold speed and
quick-thinking in high regard. Do not be in a rush to interpret what you see.
Only intervene after careful thought.

Trust yourself and make snap
decisions. You
need to understand that we have people whose strength is in making snap
decisions while there re those that take much time to weigh options. Often,
snap decisions will be essential in keeping a process smooth. This way, you can
kickstart your projects and consider putting your trust in the judgments that
you make.

Embrace small steps. It would be best if you dared to
break out of the comfort zone. Given that there are shared benefits, whether
you start slow or not, do not be afraid of anything. For this reason, you need
to identify your fears, and then face them step by step.

We
have different ways to stretch personal boundaries. You could learn a new
language or skill. Visiting new places is perhaps one of the best ways to
broaden your perspectives. However, it doesn’t have to be expensive or
challenging to do. While the experiences could be quite disappointing at times,
it will not matter much. What matters is, you’re doing it, and you’re about to
overcome various mental hurdles.

Given
how difficult it can be to try out new things, breaking out of the comfort zone
can be an uphill task. It is crucial to understand how habits form and how we
can break them. Besides, pressing yourself out of your comfort zone by carrying
out specific things will be helpful.

You
can’t live outside of your comfort zone all the time. It would help if you came
back from time to time to process your experiences. You will hardly appreciate
the new and exciting to become commonplace and dull quickly. This concept,
hedonistic adaptation, is the usual tendency to be overwhelmed by new things
that they become ordinary after a short time. Whereas it could drive us
forward, it can also keep us from appreciating the subtle and the everyday.

You
can fight this by trying new, smaller things. Diversify the challenges you
embrace. This way, you will not push your boundaries in the same direction. For
instance, if you have been learning Latin-based languages and get bored, feel
free to switch to a language with a completely different set of characters. You
still get the challenge, but you broaden your horizons differently.

Don’t fuss it, Take a step after the other

Stepping
out of your comfort zone plays a crucial role in giving you new experiences.
This way, it gets you to that state of optimal anxiety in a controlled manner.
Take time to ponder on your skills so you can reap the benefits and apply them
to your daily activities. You will also find it prudent to try something new
from time to time.

Ensure
that you do not limit yourself to significant experiences only. You could find
meditation pushing you out of your comfort zone just as much as bungee jumping.
The goal here is to learn what you are capable of. For this reason, it will be
valuable to return to your comfort zone from time to time.

Why you should break out of your comfort zone

Whereas
you could struggle to get out of the comfort zone, this will be a step towards
personal growth. Besides, adjusting to these new situations will come with a
myriad of benefits, which include the following.

There
is a sense of creativity that comes with being out of the comfort zone. Often,
it exposes you to various new possibilities. This way, you are more probable to
challenge yourself to newer heights. The move will usually open your mind to
exciting activities and even places. Further, it will expose you to more
rewarding experiences in the long run. Nothing could be more fulfilling.
Besides, it highlights an improved positive mentality. For this reason, it will
be valuable to consider finding something that motivates you and keep you
glowing.

There
is no better way for you to attain self-confidence than through getting out of
this one. You will learn that this move has a positive effect on the
self-efficacy beliefs that you have. This move will be the surest way to
realize a focused mind and make you even stronger. Through this self-confidence
and esteem, you are more likely to achieve proficiency and enhanced
productivity in the long run.

Using Anger as Fuel: Warrior Mind Podcast #464

Over five years and going
strong!  With over 800,000 downloads from
over 12 countries and 7 continents’…. this is the Warrior Mind Podcast.

In this episode of the
Warrior Mind Podcast I’m going to discuss how anger can be used to fuel our
success and performance.  

Using Anger as Fuel

1) Use anger to flush out repressed emotions. Angry feelings are unpleasant. They make us feel lousy. So, we sometimes bury them inside and pretend nothing is wrong. But like damp socks left in the closet, repressed emotions have a tendency to start smelling. They will also limit your effectiveness as a lawyer by sapping your energy and stifling your creativity.

Turn anger into a plus by using it to purge repressed
emotions.

“Repressed truth becomes polluted truth, meaning it has
the stench of something that has gone past its due-date,” writes artist and
self-styled shaman Laura Hollick. “Anger teaches us to address our true
thoughts and feelings as they arise, so they don’t reach this point of
fermentation.”

2) Use anger to reveal your weak spots. Some people just know how to push our buttons. They are good at exploiting weaknesses. Rather than lashing out, try using these opportunities to identify vulnerabilities. How can we strengthen our personal defenses?

3) Use anger to move out of complacency. Often anger is a call to action. You feel stuck. You are sick and tired of the status quo. Use anger as the engine to stir things up in your life.

4) Use anger as motivation. Anger can be an empowering force. It need not burn you up – it can light your path.  A team of Harvard researchers found that anger motivates people to take control of their lives.

Hollick advises to listen to what your anger might be
telling you, but don’t let it guide your actions. “Speak our truth, let
ourselves feel what we’re feeling,” she writes. “When you own your power, you
have befriended anger in mutual respect and appreciation.”

5) Use anger to identify other anger. Anger is contagious. It affects others who are near its presence. This is so even if the anger is not expressed. A fascinating series of brain studies have shown that when a person is feeling irate or vengeful, the bad vibe ripples out to those around them – even if the feelings are not displayed in any visible way. If you are having difficulty connecting with someone, try identifying whether anger is present in either of you. Then you can take steps to defuse the negativity and start building a more constructive relationship.

Learning to harness your anger will also prolong your
career. It is well documented that frustration, irritation and stress trigger
the brain to release chemicals that cause high blood pressure, ulcers, heart
disease and a weakened immune system. Over time your body wears out.

What situations during your workday make you angry? How
do you deal with it?

How to Be Strong and Say No: Warrior Mind Podcast #463

Podcast cover
Read more

Over five years and going
strong!  With over 800,000 downloads from
over 12 countries and 7 continents’…. this is the Warrior Mind Podcast.

In this episode of the
Warrior Mind Podcast I’m going to discuss the importance of personal boundaries
and how to be strong and say no.  

The Benefits of Saying No

No might just be a two-letter word, but it can significantly impact your relationships. For those who say it too much, it can make other people develop a negative attitude towards them and isolate them. On the other hand, if one says it too little, they might create room for stress by overbooking their schedule. It is, therefore, wise that individuals know when they should accept or refuse other people’s demands or requests.

Saying no
has both positive and negative sides. Often people are afraid of saying no
because they think it’ll separate them from their loved ones, or it can hurt
their feelings, or they’re scared that they’ll feel guilty afterwards. However,
saying no can also have a significant positive influence on your life. Here are
some benefits of saying no.

It Showcases Bravery

Saying no
can be difficult, especially to people who matter a lot. Often, we find
ourselves saying, “I’ll think about it” or “I’ll confirm”.
But when someone says a strong no without even giving an explanation, people
see that as confidence, and you’ll gain respect too.

It Means One Values Their Time

Most times,
we find ourselves doing things we don’t want because we’re scared of
disappointing our loved ones. In the end, we end up spending our valuable time
on things that won’t matter. Saying no, therefore, means that you understand
how precious time is and don’t want to waste yours on something that’s not worth
it.

Enjoy
this podcast on how to be strong and say no

It’s Like Saying Yes At Times

Did you know that every time an individual says no to one thing, they’re saying yes to another? Think of it this way, when you refuse to engage in activities which don’t interest you, one frees up their time for other things. This hence encourages you to remain positive and focused on your goals and vision.

It Means You Know What You Want

Many
individuals respond quickly to other people’s demands. But it’s wise if we will
take time and think about what we really want. Sometimes we say yes even when
we don’t want to because we’re afraid of being isolated or resented. However,
if we know what we want, refusing to do things one doesn’t want will be easier.

It Means You’re Assertive

All of us
have met those people who don’t take no for an answer. Even if you tell them
no, they’ll keep pestering you until you agree to their demands. These people
usually make it hard for you especially if you’re trying to remain productive.
It’s, therefore, essential that you stand your ground. No matter which creative
ways these individuals use to convince you, you’ll not change your mind. If
your first answer was no, stick with it no matter the case.

Well, we’re
not suggesting that saying no is easy. In fact, it is among the toughest
answers one will ever give. Most of us were raised to agree with other people
request. So when we don’t say yes, we often feel guilty. However, the more
you’re saying yes when you mean no, you’ll create a stressful environment for
yourself. Although saying no is hard, you’ll realize the more you say it, the
more it becomes easier.

Creating an Inspiring Vision Statement: Warrior Mind Podcast #462

Podcast cover
Read more

Over five years and going
strong!  With over 800,000 downloads from
over 12 countries and 7 continents’…. this is the Warrior Mind Podcast.

In this episode of the
Warrior Mind Podcast I’m going to discuss…once again, why is so important to
strength to have an inspiring vision statement to help give your life
direction.  

How to Create an Inspiring
Vision Statement

Sailors of past centuries
used the North Star to navigate since it remained stationary. It is easy to be
distracted by other things and stray away from our goals. Therefore, we need
something to provide the direction necessary to achieve our goals, just like the
old sailors used the star to find their way across the seas.

What
is a Personal Vision Statement?

We are all familiar with
company vision statements. A vision statement of any firm is the dream that it
wants to achieve. By reading this statement, you’ll know the long-term goal of
the business. For instance, Disney’s vision statement is, “To make people
Happy.”

A personal vision statement
can be defined in a similar way but at an individual level. Apart from telling
the goals a person wants to achieve, a personal vision statement is also a
reflection of the values held by that individual.

Why
Do We Need Personal Vision Statement?

• In our daily lives, it’s easy to get distracted from our main goal. One of the biggest problems with distraction is that other people’s agenda comes before our own. Although a personal vision statement will not take away the distractions, it inspires us to focus on what is important to us. By providing clarity for the future, a vision places our attention in the present.

• A vision statement
provides us with clear end goals in mind. Consequently, it makes us determined
individuals, thereby inspiring us even in our darkest time. A vision enables us
to shed off all the stuff that is important in our lives.

• A personal vision statement
is one of the most powerful tools that can help us to push outside our comfort
zone. A compelling statement makes us do things we would not have done.
Accordingly, our lives become products of design and not chance.

this podcast on the creating an inspiring vision statement

Why
We Struggle with Vision

Despite our knowledge of how
an inspiring personal vision statement is important in shaping our lives, some
people find it hard to write their vision down. Understanding these blocks
could go a long way in overcoming the fear that stops us from crafting our inspiring
vision statements.

We are victims of cultural
conditioning. Our education system from early age conditions us to decide based
on a limited range of options. Most of the time, our choices are based on what
is available for us or what we believe is available. However, visualization
requires us to make choices from an infinite range of options.

We fail to visualize.
Visualization is a skill. Just like a muscle, if you fail to exercise it, it
feels uncomfortable to use it. Given that many of us stopped visualizing at a
young age, we feel that we are not doing it in the right way when requested to
do it today. Some people believe that they cannot visualize, or that it doesn’t
work for them. Contrary, the more we visualize, the better we become in creating
from our imagination.

We have fear. It’s no secret
that we fear failure — questioning our competence and ability to persevere and
make it hard for us to create a personal vision statement. Fear makes us
question our ability to dream big. When we allow fear to engulf us, safety
becomes more important than growth. However, when we overcome fear, we become
visionary and feel free to try new things.

A vision has to be perfect.
We believe that we should have the “right” vision, the perfect vision. We want
to craft a timeless vision. Nevertheless, what is perfect in reality? Are we
perfect in everything that we do? If the answer is no, then why do we want a
perfect vision? When we become aware of this false belief, perfection no longer
limits us.

Before
You Start Dreaming Up Your Vision

When creating an inspiring
personal vision, it’s important to go through a discovery process to clarify
what should be included. The mind must be open, alert, centered, and ready. The
mind can achieve this status through two methods.

#1.
Quiet Your Mind

When your mind is in the
right frame, it is easy to find your center. At this state, the mind does not
race to the future and is not ruminate in the past. To achieve this status,
place your feet firmly on the ground. In the next 20 seconds, place your
attention on the feet and notice any sensation. By focusing on your feet, all
the energy is drawn from the head down.

#2.
Connect to Your Heart

To create a connection with
your heart, gently smile inwardly. Take three full breaths as you acknowledge
your heart and say to it, “Thank You.”

8
Elements to Explore for Your Life Vision

  • Areas of Focus: Identify important categories of your life that always require your attention.
  • Core Values: Identify five to 10 things that you value the most.
  • Dreams: Identify what you would regret not doing, creating, or seeing if today was your last day on earth.
  • Interests: Identify five to 10 things you enjoy doing. Also, identify what you can’t live without.
  • Profession: Identify what you must do to feel satisfied with your work.
  • Skills: Identify three areas that you feel you need to work on to enrich your life experience.
  • Strengths: Identify what you are good at.

Want’s and Don’t Want:
Identify what you have and want to keep, what you have and don’t want to keep,
what you don’t have and want to get, and what you don’t have and don’t want to
get.

Craft
Your Vision Statement

You shouldn’t be concerned
about having a perfect vision as any vision is better than none. Just create
“working vision” and don’t mind much as it can evolve. However, you
should make sure you have included everything important in your life.

When
to Use Your Life Vision

• Revisit the vision statement
at the beginning of the week

• To prepare for the
following week, check the statement on Sunday evening

• When you have so many
things happening around you

• When you’re doubtful about
the purpose and meaning of your life

• Check it regularly until
you internalize it.

How
to Use Your Vision

Although writing and reading
your vision statement down is crucial, it’s even more important to bring it to
life. Visualize your vision in your mind and picture yourself with the vision
actualized. The clearer the vision appears in your mind, the more you are
likely to work towards actualizing it. You are also likely to get external help
when living your vision.

TIP:
When creating a vision statement take the 9 keys of your life and write a
“mini” statement for them, and then combine them together.  These 9 areas are:

  1. Career
  2. Money/finances
  3. Health/fitness
  4. Personal
    development/growth
  5. Spiritual
  6. Family
  7. Recreation/fun
  8. Romance
  9. Friends/social

Over five years and going

over 12 countries and 7 continents’…. this is the Warrior Mind Podcast.

In this episode of the
Warrior Mind Podcast I’m going to discuss why is so important to strength your
no muscle and get comfortable with saying no.

Reasons
for Saying No

It consists of just two
little letters, but the word “no” can have a big impact on your relationships
with others—and with yourself. Too much “no” and you can isolate yourself,
creating a negative persona, and miss out on opportunities. Too little “no” and
you might overbook your schedule and bring on too much stress in the process.
Finding a balance between yes and no is key, but that equilibrium can only
exist if you’re able to see both the positive and negative sides of saying no.

It’s easy to see what’s wrong with saying no: It might hurt others’ feelings. It might create distance between you and your loved ones. It might leave you feeling guilty or regretful. It might limit opportunities. But there’s more to no than just negativity. Saying no can actually have a very positive influence on your life.

Here are some of the
reason’s no can be a positive act that will lead to more personal fulfillment
and better interactions with others.

Enjoy
this podcast on the benefits of saying no

5
Why’s for Saying No

1. Saying no means you value
your time.

Saying no is the best tool
you have for distancing yourself from negative people or situations. Remind
yourself how valuable your time is, and you’re less likely to hesitate when it
comes to saying no to something you really don’t want to do. Saying no requires
a strong sense of self, but in the end, it will reinforce your emotional
well-being.

2. Saying no can be a brave
act.

No can be difficult to say
without hedging or including an explanation. You might say, “I’ll have to think
about it…” or “I’m not sure, maybe…” These phrases not only confuse others (is
that a yes or a no?), but also dilute your own certainty about what you want.
Consider each time you say no, without a hedge or explanation, to be a brave
act of self-respect.

3. Saying no means you know
what you want.

Rather than immediately
responding to a question or a request, take time to ask yourself, “What do
I really want?” Sometimes, for various reasons, we have to do things we
don’t want to do. But if you find yourself constantly saying yes even when you
don’t want to, you should consider your own needs. You may build up resentment,
which can damage relationships.

4. Saying no means standing
your ground.

Some people won’t take no
for an answer. They’ll urge you, cajole you, and come up with all kinds of
creative solutions to make you say yes. These people are a challenge when
you’re trying to make your life a more positive, productive place. When
encountering won’t-take-no types, stand your ground and repeat your initial
response. If you find yourself wavering, recall the reasons you chose to say no
in the first place and consider how good you’ll feel if you remain true to
yourself. You’ll find this fortitude carries over into other areas of your
life.

5. Saying no is sometimes
saying yes.

Every time you say no to one
thing, you’re saying yes to something else. No means freeing up your time (and,
in some cases, your emotional bandwidth) to engage in other, perhaps more
positive, activities. If you feel badly for turning someone down, reframe your
response, offering to do something another time that you want to do.

It can be tough to say no.
Many of us were raised to always be nice and say yes. Learning how to decline
an invitation or request without feeling guilty is an essential aspect of
living a happy life. The more you master the art of saying no when necessary,
the easier it becomes to fill your life with activities and people who bring
you true happiness. If you find yourself defaulting to yes more than you’d
like, or you struggle with sticking to no once you’ve said it, come back to
these five points and remind yourself of the positive power of no.

The Importance of a Reflective Practice: Warrior Mind Podcast #460

Podcast cover
Read more

Over five years and going
strong!  With over 800,000 downloads from
over 12 countries and 7 continents’…. this is the Warrior Mind Podcast.

In this episode of the
Warrior Mind Podcast I’m going to discuss what a reflective practice is, why it’s
important and how to start your own.

What
Does Reflective Practice Mean?

Basically, reflective practice means reflecting on or
thinking about what you do. In a way, the concept of learning from experience
has a close relationship to reflective practice because it involves thinking
about your actions and deciding to act in a different way next time.

It is part of humans in general, to think about previous
events. However, casual thinking and ‘reflective practice’ are not the same,
conscious effort goes into thinking about occurrences and drawing lessons from
them when it has to do with ‘reflective practice’. Once reflective practice
becomes a part of you, you will benefit from it both at home and at work.

Reflective
Practice as a Skill

Over the years, a lot of scholars have examined the
concept of experiential learning and reflective practice. Chris Argyris, one of
such scholars, propounded the term ‘double-loop learning’ which he used to
explain the idea that when you reflect, you are able to move out of the ‘single
loop’ of ‘Experience, Reflect, Conceptualize and Apply’ into another loop where
you then form a new paradigm and redevelop your ideas so that you can do things
in a different way.

The good news for almost everyone is that they all seem
to share a similar belief that reflective practice is a skill that you can
learn and develop.

Also, scholars agree that reflective practice makes it easier to move from theory to practice—that is, it aids us in delving into theories and applying them to our life experiences in a way that is more organized.  Whether it be ideas that you formed yourself or formal theories associated with academic research. It also motivates us to examine the beliefs and assumptions we have and to see a way of solving our problems.

this podcast on the importance of a reflective practice

Developing
and Making Use of Reflective Practice

What are the steps we can take to develop the critical,
formative and constructive thinking that’s a prerequisite for reflective
practice?

Neil Thompson suggested these six steps in his book,
People Skills:

–Read up those things that relate to the topics you are
interested in learning about and developing.

–Ask people about their way of doing things and their
reasons.

–Watch the happenings around you

–Give attention to your feelings and emotions, how do
they come about and how do you handle the negative ones.

–Talk-let others in your organization know about your
views and experiences.

–Think – make it a habit to see the worth in the time
you spend thinking about the work you do.

What this means is that the thinking is not the only
thing that’s important; an understanding of the theory, the way in which other
people practice it and their ideas are all equally important.

Reflective practice is an activity that you can do
together with others, you don’t have to do it alone. Some social psychologists
even suggest that expressing our thoughts by either writing it down or saying
it out loud is the only way that we can learn. Relating this to those times
when we are alone and feel the need to think out loud suddenly makes that act
sensible. However, what this implies for reflective practice is that thoughts
which remain undeclared, may fade away.

Since instances of shared reflective practice in our busy
workplace like reviews of particular events or appraisal interviews do not
occur everyday, finding an opportunity for shared reflective practice can be
somewhat difficult. Therefore, you have to look for other means that would
enable you articulate your insights.

Keeping a journal of learning experiences does help even
if it feels somewhat phony. Writing down the events and activities that you
involved yourself in everyday and reflecting on each of them to consider the
lessons they taught you and what you should or could have done differently aids
your reflective practice. Besides the aspect of changing, a learning journal
coupled with reflective practice can let you know times in which you did the
right thing.

You might want to follow this simple process shown below
in writing your learning journal. This is just to help you have a good start,
you can start mixing up the steps when you get more experienced.

The
Process of Reflective Learning

Pinpoint one event that occurred in your personal life or
your work place that you feel you could have handled in a better way.

Describe the experience

What took place? Where and at what time did the issue
occur? Is there any other thing you think about the issue?

Reflection

What was your attitude? What were your thoughts? How did
you feel about it? Did any other factor contribute to the issue? What did the
experience teach you?

Theorizing

was there a relationship between your preconceived ideas
and the experience, as in, did you expect the results you got or not? Does it
match any formal theories you know? Is there any behavior you think could have
changed the results you got?

Experimentation

Do you think there’s something you could say, or do now
that would change the results? To avoid having similar outcomes in future, what
actions can you take? What behaviors can you experiment with?

The
Gains of Reflective Practice

Engaging in reflective practice increases
self-awareness—a key aspect of emotional intelligence that helps you understand
others in a better way.  Also, if you
wish to hone your creative thinking skills and be more active when you engage in
activities, reflective practice would help you achieve that.

When you keep a learning journal and use reflective
practice regularly, it will promote relevant discussions about your personal
development and career development. Also, it could provide you with a handful
of examples during interview situations that are based on competency.

Warning

It’s very easy to succumb to pressure and dump reflective
practice; however, under those circumstances, it’s one thing that you should
hold very dear. Spending time on reflective practice means that you’re
concentrating on the most important things—things important to both your family
or your employer.

Over five years and going
strong!  With over 800,000 downloads from
over 12 countries and 7 continents’…. this is the Warrior Mind Podcast.

In this episode of the
Warrior Mind Podcast I’m going to discuss what a personal transformation is and
how the steps to take to survive and thieve this transition.

How to
Survive A Personal Transformation

According
to great philosophers, change is the only constant thing. You can never evade
life changes and whether it’s the beginning or the end of a relationship,
job/career change, starting a family, or loss of a family, transitions are part
of human existence but yet difficult to adapt to. Our lives can be regarded as
‘work-in-progress’, but because we don’t control our future, we don’t know when
to experience our next transition. Surviving personal transition can be
challenging but we, at Transitions Institute are here to help. We provide
professional support to help you manage transitions easily and establish your
goals.

Everyone
desires to experience a life full of joy and satisfaction, have nurturing and
fulfilling relationships, and go beyond self-imposed limitations. However,
things don’t always go as we expect and for you to live the life you desire,
you must go through a transitions process. When coping with changes, it’s
likely to find yourself in a ‘flight, fight or freeze response’. Whether the transformative
event was anticipated or unexpected, desired or not, adapting to change is not
always tough and requires physical and mental energy to adapt to a new set of
circumstances and find a new equilibrium. The following are four phases of the
transitions process that explain how to take control of your life.

Enjoy
this podcast on surviving your personal transformation

Examining
the personal transformation process

Phase 1 – Self-Awareness

The
self-awareness phase examines the relationship you have with the voice in your
head or your thoughts. In most cases, the conversation you have with your inner
self can question you or find fault in everything you do, but with Warrior Mind
Coaching, you’ll learn how to change it to be supportive. Your inner dialogue
shapes and determines your personal reality and once you choose us, we promise
to make a difference in your life by showing you how to alter your inner
conversation easily and replace hesitation and concern with freedom and confidence.

Phase 2 – Self-Acceptance

The second
phase is about self-acceptance; accepting where you’ve come from, where you are
and where you want to be. At Warrior Mind Coaching, I’m committed to providing
you with appropriate tools that will help move your attention from the past to
the future you dream about. In this phase, we help you understand who you are.
Self-Acceptance is not about taking ownership of your strengths and weaknesses,
gifts and limitations; it’s about being responsible for your actions and
embracing your extraordinary, unlimited as well as generative power of who you
are. The world around us is full of challenges and for you to adopt, you must
believe in yourself that you have the power to conquer.

Phase 3 – Self-Generation

In this
phase, we understand that there’s who you are and what people think you are.
We, therefore, help you to interpret who you are for the people around you and
who you are for yourself. By comprehending the nature of yourself, you get in
an environment where you won’t be afraid of experimenting with the change
process and reducing any risks in your path to change. That way, you’ll live a
happy life knowing that the sky’s the limit and that you have all it takes to
face challenges and emerge victorious to explore possible future. Besides,
you’ll be able to create your reality and once you declare your future with
purpose, conviction, and power, your declarations will have power and you’ll
soon find yourself where you’ve always wanted to be.

Phase 4 – Self-Actualization

The fourth phase is all about examining pathways to the future and developing skills and strategies that will get you to the desired destination. At Warrior Mind Coaching, we help you understand that you’re not visualizing and thinking about your future, but you’re indeed living it. For you to keep your future alive, you must design appropriate practices and structures and come up with the right techniques to transform your problems into opportunities and most importantly, learn how to express your intentions and commitments in the right way to support your career, friends, family, and organizations.

Bottom line

Personal
transitions are challenging and whereas some such as getting the first job are
common, others such as changing careers are unique. Life transition is a period
of growth and during this time, you will change for the better. Accept that you
are remarkable and that you can overcome challenges on your way to greatness.
Most importantly, don’t walk this journey alone because I’m here to walk with
you.

Over five years and going
strong!  With over 800,000 downloads from
over 12 countries and 7 continents’…. this is the Warrior Mind Podcast.

In this episode of the
Warrior Mind Podcast I’m going to discuss what the Hero’s’ Journey is, how it
shows up and how to use it for personal development.

Embracing
Your Hero’s Journey

Looking
at people today, you get a sense there is something very different about them
when you compare them to people of even just a few decades ago. There are more
people who appear to have become soulless and even though the work, having a
car and a job and even a strong relationship with a spouse and a connection to
God, there is something missing. You yourself may have a sense of emptiness
inside, even as you are doing the right thing. This may be a feeling that even
as you do the right thing, you don’t feel it.

Another group of people may feel live and the vibrant love and suffering it offers. However, their lives are always in rumbles. For these people, their personal relationships tend to be unsatisfactory and they feel like they are in a trapped place. These people feel isolated from the world and hopeless.

A
third type of person is the person who never knows how to make it in the world,
nor do they understand how to be connected to their soul. These people live an
empty life that has no rewards for them and they never actually discover what
their true purpose is.

Fortunately,
the Hero’s Journey can help everyone to connect with themselves. This is a
narrative as identified respected scholar Joseph Campbell that showcases
religious rituals, storytelling, myths and psychological development. In the
narrative, The Hero goes through a series of deeds to help a specific group of
people. It can be a small group that needs help or an entire civilization whose
survival rests on the success of the hero.

The
hero’s journey is one of the most important pieces of life and those who
partake in it will find that their life ends up being more rewarding than
imaginable. Each of us has our own destiny and when we discover it, we become a
person who feels more deeply connected and rooted, while experiencing a life
that is far more fulfilling.

When
you begin to embrace your hero’s journey, you can experience a decrease in the
suffering that your life currently has. As you continue to live through the
program, you will also find that as your journey becomes more defined, the
happier and more fulfilling your life is going to be.

this podcast on embracing your hero’s journey

The 3 Main Stages of the Hero’s Journey

  • Stage 1: Departure. …
  • Stage 2: Initiation. …
  • Stage 3: Return. …

Step10 Hero’s Journey Steps

  • Step 1: The Ordinary World
  • Step 2: The Call to Adventure
  • Step 3: Cross the First Threshold
  • Step 4: Trials, Friends, and Foes
  • Step 5: Magical Mentor (or the Mentor with
    Supernatural Aid)
  • Step 6: Dragon’s Lair
  • Step 7: Moment of Despair
  • Step 8: Ultimate Treasure
  • Step 9: Homeward Bound
  • Step 10: Rebirth & The Champion’s Return

You will after all, discover who you truly are and that will help you to
become better aligned with your spirit. Many people think of this as a form of
awakening as they find what it is in life that is calling to your heart and
soul. Just keep in mind that what is calling to your soul might not be an easy
decision to make. However, if you always chose the easy road, you wouldn’t be
on the path of a true hero’s journey.

As you begin your hero’s journey, understand that the benefits and all you
find is going to add meaning to your life, but don’t think it will come free.
The unfortunate truth is when there is goodness and light, there will also be
evil and shadows that can be cast. It is up to the hero to remain brighter than
the shadows and to ensure that they take on the shadows and appreciate the
life. While this means there is a price to pay on the journey, the end reward
will always be worth it.

Truly embracing your hero’s journey will mean that you heal the wounds in
your life and allow yourself to accept the gifts you have been given. You can
let your personal relationships, work and other influences positively impact
your life and then share the enrichment that these offer you in the process. In
each of us, is a treasure that is waiting to be discovered and when we open it
and share those gifts with others, we are able to reward those we love and
cherish and to ensure that there is a better experience for all.

In our lives, we will be confronted with things like death. Each time we
face this and challenge our fears, we become stronger and we are able to move
forward on our hero’s journey. This is similar to when a hero in a tale slays
the dragon. When this happens, his community is saved and the risk proves to
save others and to give him a rewarding sense of success.

Today, many people are told they shouldn’t take on the challenges in life
and that causes them to shut down and internalize who they are. This
internalizing instead causes pain and self-destruction and a sense of emptiness
in life. This has led to our culture from being what it should be.

That doesn’t mean we can just jump head first into a situation. Instead, we
first need to begin to take steps on the journey and earn our rites of passage.
Before we know it, we will have achieved a degree of dense and have the ability
to experience a new and rewarding life as we pull from the lessons that are given
us. With each encounter we have, we learn how to emotionally and intellectually
travel through this, until we reach the next level.

How to Avoid Burnout: Warrior Mind Podcast #457

Podcast cover
Read more

Over four years and going strong!  With over 800,000 downloads from over 9 countries and 5 continents’…. this is the Warrior Mind Podcast.

In this episode of the Warrior Mind Podcast I’m going to discuss ways to avoid burnout so that you can consistently make progress on your goals.

Burnout

Burnout is an expression used to refer to a sense of being not able to handle your tasks properly due to the pressure of work. Burnout is usually a condition of long-term fatigue and lack of interest at work and will lead to over-work on a very long time, or by persistent and excessive strain. Although burnout was initially considered to result from excessive stress and work, doctors now feel there is quite a bit more likely to be a component of mood involved.

On the flip side, some people are extremely unlikely to suffer from burnout; however much strain they’re put under, though some might suffer with it without being set below what most people would consider extra pressure.

What is Burnout?

There is no accurate definition of burnout. Even physicians don’t have an exact clinical coding for burnout because its symptoms tend to be quite like people who have depression or other psychological disorders. Individuals contemplating themselves to be experiencing burnout are inclined to be very, very drowsy, and frequently find it hard to make conclusions. They could fight to locate energy for whatever. They might also have problems with other mental health issues like depression however if they don’t realize a condition of clinical mental ailment they might suffer with doubts about their effectiveness or ability, or very low self-esteem.

Burnout and Stress

There is increasing evidence that some amount of stress is effective, and even crucial to a lot of folks to give motivation. But excessive stress, particularly over a lengthy time period, is usually agreed to be awful for you. There are physiological reasons for this. When you’re under stress, the human body creates stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol, the ‘battle, fright or combat’ hormone. These hormones prepare the human body to get rapid and prompt actions, whether that would be to run away or to combat something.

All these hormones evolved, over countless years, to create a response. They contribute to real physiological modifications: increased heartbeat, motion of blood into crucial elements of your body, lack of desire. Having them continuously within your blood is going to get some fairly ‘interesting’ impacts in your long-term well-being. You are likely to be more jumpy, nervous, and frequently over-emotional, also it’s quite wearing on the human physique. No wonder folks afflicted by long-term stress are exhausted and may become unwell. Unattended burnout can result in CFS/ ME which could grow to be a lifelong neurological illness.

CFS or ME?

CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and ME (Myalgic Encephalopathy) are titles for a painful disease that affects millions of individuals globally.

ME/CFS Sufferers may experience the feelings of burnout within extended intervals. Symptoms include decreased concentration and memory, in addition to physical effects like aching joints and intense headaches. If you believe you, or somebody who you know, might have ME or CFS afterward ifs very important to seek medical assistance and be correctly diagnosed. Even though there’s not any cure, there are treatments that might help.

Preventing Burnout

The very first thing to bear in mind is that as soon as you suffer from burnout, the character of the illness means it is quite difficult to do anything about that. Part of the thing is that you’re just too tired to take care of anything. You’re therefore going to fight to create the necessary modifications to increase your own life. And while there’s not any doubt there are people that are considerably more vulnerable to burnout than many others, even the very competent will finally start to struggle. Below are tips to avoiding burnout.

1.     Prevention is Far Better Than Cure

Learn to realize early when you are experiencing stress, and if that stress is beginning to receive a little too much to you, and end up from this circumstance. Ask trusted friends and coworkers that will allow you to recognize your ‘informs’, the manners which you can tell that you are stressed. Many people today snap and become irritable; others move silent. Workout your trend, ensure you see when it occurs, then do something about that.

2.     It’s Up to You

Proof Indicates the many stressful situations are the ones where you believe you are not responsible for the reply to this is to attempt and take charge of your life, at least in tiny ways.

 For Example, attempt to work out exactly what scenarios make you anxious and prevent them. You probably shouldn’t attempt and prevent them completely, as a small strain, and being from your ‘comfort zone’, is excellent for you. However, it may be advisable to not choose a job at which those scenarios will compose the majority of your operating day. Should you wind up in a project like this, and you also begin to and it quite stressful, see that you’re able to negotiate your way into an alternate. If you cannot, you might want to start looking for a different job. Nobody else will do this to you since nobody knows exactly what it is that’s making you worried.

3.     Try to Come up With a Great Work-Life Balance

 One very great approach to prevent stress is to get a fantastic work-life balance. Should you take certain actions to spend time on the job, and much more time with your loved ones, or on private interests, you’ll almost certainly definition become stressed. Work expands to match the moment. Reduce the moment, and you may well realize that you still receive the job done.

4.     Do Something Active

Taking exercise is an excellent way to decrease the probability of burnout. To begin with, individuals that are physically fit are better able to deal with job requirements anyhow and, second, exercise releases endorphins that enable us feel great. It’s important but to not start into a vigorous workout regimen – build up gradually and listen to an entire body.

Bottom Line

Finally, if you think you, or somebody who you know, might be experiencing burnout, it is significant to reach out to other people and seek assist. It might feel as if nothing is going to improve, however searching for assistance is your first step to obtaining it. You should not feel ashamed or embarrassed to speak to your own physician and also for supervisor about how you’re feeling. Do not feel helpless, request help.

The Downside of Procrastination: Warrior Mind Podcast #456

Over four years and going
strong!  With over 800,000 downloads from
over 9 countries and 5 continents’…. this is the Warrior Mind Podcast.

In this episode of the
Warrior Mind Podcast I’m going to discuss the downside of procrastination, even
if you think there is benefit, there’s not.

The Downside of
Procrastination

Procrastination is when you
put something that you should do now off to do it at a later time or date. It’s
a common characteristic with every person to delay doing something. However,
there is times that when we procrastinate; we don’t get to do that thing at
all. Among the most common procrastinating statements include;

  • I’ll start on my new fitness program when the
    weather improves,
  • I’ll start on my diet plan after having this
    birthday cake,
  • I’d love to visit my aunt, but I have a
    jam-packed weekend,
  • I’ll teach my kids about the dangers of drug
    abuse soon but not today,
  • We’ll do the extended holiday soon but not
    this year,
  • I’d love to get back to my college classes
    soon but not this semester,
  • My spouse and I will go for a date again but
    not until the kids leave home,
  • I want to start saving but not until I get a
    pay rise,
  • I want to act friendly to them, but I’ll do
    it when they begin being fair as well,
  • I’ll make a will and encourage my Father to
    do so soon,
  • We plan to launch a marketing a plan when our
    sales increase,
  • I love to write that book, but I’ll do it
    next year when I have time,
  • I wish to call my friends, but I’ll do it
    next week when we’re out of school.

More On the Downside of
Procrastination

These are a few of the common phrases you’ll come across from people daily. But what does this procrastination cost you? For many of the people, the price they pay back is far more than expected. It can further result if you not achieving your goals. Let’s consider the consequences you might suffer from some of the above procrastinating examples;

  • You failed to get to your new diet program,
    and therefore you gained more weight,
  • After the weather improved, you looked out
    for a new excuse not to exercise and thus risking your health,
  • Your aunt passed away before you visited her,
  • You’re not able to materialize the extended
    holiday,
  • You didn’t talk to your kids about drug
    abuse, and now your son is an addict,
  • For not taking your college classes, you’re
    still working on a job that you hate,
  • You got divorced since you didn’t have time
    to spend with your spouse,
  • You didn’t get a pay increase, and therefore
    you retired broke for not saving,
  • You still hold on grudges waiting for others
    to be nice,
  • Also, your parents didn’t make a will, and
    much of their properties got wasted on lawyers.
  • You didn’t launch the marketing plan, and as
    a result, your business went bankrupt,
  • Someone took your ideas and wrote a
    successful book since you didn’t take the initiative to write the book
    yourself.
  • You delayed communication, and now you’ve
    very few friends left.

These are as a result of
procrastination. What you need is stop procrastinating and do it now reasons
being you don’t know about tomorrow. Take an example you get diagnosed with
cancer, and the doctors say you have a year left to die. You should take the
initiative to implement your goals so that at the end of the one year, you’ll
be successful.

Do
you think you could have done things differently?

Are there some things that
you put off that if given a chance today you’d do them differently? Among the
reasons why a large group of people holds to procrastinating is the
all-or-nothing mindset. That is, “if you can’t do everything on the list, you
won’t do anything.” That’s being silly in that; people focus on what they cannot
do rather than what they can do. What this does is reduce their levels of
success to increase their frequencies of procrastination.

If you want to do away with
procrastination, the following steps will be of great help,

  • Make a list of all the things you did put off
    getting them done on a later date. Include things you loved to do, and the
    relationships you procrastinated. Note to do it immediately.
  • Review the items to see if you’d admire to do
    them. Pick the ones that fit in your current goals and are meaningful to you.
  • Categorize the list into three groups;
  • Things you want to achieve,
  • Things that you wish you have,
  • Relationships you want to enrich,

 Gain personal knowledge and create
self-awareness as a way of reducing cases of procrastination.

  • Discover the reasons why you did
    procrastinate on doing something on the past and look out on what it did cost
    your life then project on your future.
  • Prioritize your goals so that you don’t feel
    overwhelmed.
  • Pick your first item and attend to it without
    making further procrastination
  • Enjoy the process of achieving new goals.
    Don’t focus only on achieving the goals.
  • Stop Feeling guilty for the things you
    procrastinated on in the past as it’ll cost you more delays
  • Seek help from other people.
  • Celebrate your successes if you want to keep
    the spirit

Much of the things you pick
will not call for much cash. Some of these items might also need fiscal
resources creating a conflict of interest. Take an example; you need to go
somewhere necessary, but the only cash you have is your retirement savings.
When you face such a thing, consider following these rules

Rule1: do not delay on
something you cannot achieve at a later date

Rule 2: If you can replace
your savings in the future, base your decision, not on your longevity but
mortality.

The next thing is to start
taking actions as a priority. However, make your obligations based on your
abilities. Make sure to embrace what life has to offer today. If lack of
resources is the cause of your procrastination, look at what results to the
limited resources.

Final
Verdict

When you look back on
yesterday, you should get a feeling of satisfaction, contented, happy and
fulfilled. Check out on what you did with your time? Did you change your way of
doing things? My advice is that you engage your life fully. Ensure not to make
further mistakes by procrastinating, to limit the damage it costs your life.
Many of us fail in life because we wait for the right time so that we can start
on doing something. Stop waiting as time will never be right, and if you wait
on time, it’s not waiting for you.
