I want to focus this last episode of 2016 on reflection and setting yourself up for the new year rather than JUST setting resolutions.
With New Year's resolutions, we often times set goals that may be difficult to meet or we lose sight of these goals relatively quickly after setting them. Resolutions alone do not set ourselves up for long term growth. I believe resolutions are more so like bandaids to cover something that should be corrected or improved for long term success.
Most of the time, resolutions are created out of desperation and short term success. More simply, they don't work. Or last.
In this podcast episode, I dig deep into this process and how you can create new goals, habits, and lifestyle changes that last rather than dissipate because your mindset isn't necessarily determined.
What you allow will always continue. Good and bad.
Now go out and dig deep!
Holiday season or not, setting ourselves up for success is the key to feeling productive and stress-free. Being a week from Christmas, I wanted so share a few simple steps that can be applied immediately to enable you to feel comfortable taking a step back and relaxing.
We all have different schedules and agendas with work and with leading up to a holiday vacation; as well as when we return from the vacation! These steps can provide any person with any agenda at any time of the year relief to find more peace in stressful times.
Improving our productivity begins with awareness, a routine and a system--and sticking to it them! In the newest episode of CHANGE by CHOICE I will elaborate on this as well as discuss the remaining productivity hacks.
Finding the "sweet spot" in our growth, learning, and journey takes trusting the process. And within the process, takes multiple struggles. They aren't comfortable and sometimes they bring doubt but working through the struggle as we continue to trust the process makes all of the hard work WORTH IT.
In this podcast episode of Change by Choice, we discuss the process, how to honor it, how to retrain and reframe our mindset, and how embrace the struggles without pushing them away; all in order to grow into the person we are meant to become.
Anger is an emotional that holds many people back. Brendon Burchard says, “Anger is either worry or hurt most of the time.” It takes a shift in perspective and for us to put ourselves in another’s shoes to try to understand where their anger comes from. By understanding the anger, we can take a step back from it and evaluate it from an angle that will keep us from being caught up in the emotions. When we get caught up in the emotions, we become defensive and shameful. Listen to this episode of CHANGE by CHOICE to learn about how we can approach anger and how we can control our emotions when dealing with another person’s anger.
