PERFECTION | MiM
To strive for perfection in our work is a trait that is admirable and appreciated when it comes to creating something out of your hands or using materials to create wondrous things for other people.
Everyone wants everybody to do a good job on their works.
Slacking off and taking the fastest mental shortcuts may not be in your favor if you happen to be the creator, the mastermind of an invention.
If we can strive for perfection in our works, we can make things become more enjoyable, more pleasurable to look at, easier to understand, easier to get through obstacles, easier to help you find and improve your work.
I reference McDonald’s and Ray Kroc frequently when coaching in business.
I love the consistency of product and service that they deliver.
Many businesses could afford to learn from them.
At the end of a coaching session, a friend gave me a copy of Grinding It Out in appreciation of the work we did together and the success he had.
The book recounts how Ray Kroc built McDonald’s.
Packed with business and life lessons it makes for a great read.
A simple change of perspective toward procrastination can help you get rid of it.
Most people would tell you to try these steps to stop procrastination:
- Not to think of what you have to do and just do it
- Keep track of your activities
- Plan ahead/have a time table
- Break it down into simpler sub-tasks
But most procrastinators know that none of this actually helps.
You can make as many time-tables as you want, simplify the tasks you have at hand, it only helps so much.
At the end of the day you will go: ‘Meah! I’ll do it later, I have still got time‘.
It all comes down to this.
When we procrastinate, we see it as our own decision.
A decision to postpone allwork at hand. And according to us, our decisions are always right, aren’t they?
But when we start to see that decision of postponing work as someone else’s, when we start to see it as a fight, a fight that we are losing, we start to act!
We start to fight back!
In this podcast, I will give you tips to uncover your life purpose and show you the three most common reasons that stop people from fulfilling their life mission.
The vast majority of people don’t know their life purpose or they are unsure about their mission. It is difficult to find something when you don’t know what you are looking for.
If you don’t know your life purpose, don’t fret just yet, you may need longer to discover it. You need to do the work necessary to find out what is that makes you feel happy and fulfilled.
Sometimes you can know your life purpose but then get sidetracked and never fulfil it.
To defeat the demons of anxiety, guilt, fear of failure, and fear of success that stop you from fulfilling your life purpose. It will take discipline and dedication.
Are you up to the challenge?
How to Build Mental Toughness
Today, we are talking about how to build mental toughness. Most people live their entire lives pleasing others – not wanting to look silly because of what they love to do, afraid of failing because it will look bad, not taking chances in something they want, or not even getting assistance with their problems because they feel it looks “weak.”
Developing mental toughness asks you to be authentic – no matter what that looks like.
Be yourself – no matter what that looks like.
There is no one mentally tougher than the person who is unapologetically themselves.
Own it. Embrace it – flaws and all, and there is no way anyone can hurt you or stop you.
There are a lot of approaches to becoming more confident, but for me, the answer has been developing what psychologists call, “self-efficacy,” or what I like to call, “getting shi*** done.”
Self-confidence is determined by your self-esteem, a gauge of how much you like yourself.
You can build esteem in many ways – being beautiful, driving a nice car, having celebrity status, and being capable.
Some of those things are out of reach, but we can always be capable.
Self-esteem is made up of all the interpersonal relationships and experiences you’ve had in your life.
Everyone you’ve ever met has added to or taken away from how you see yourself!
