Food For Thought: An addiction to distraction is a killer to creative production

💡 How often do we allow ourselves to get “distracted” so that we can avoid doing what we want to or have to do❓ This is also known as procrastination…

In my experience, both through studies and working with many people, to become successful, we need to dominate our daily life by producing masterpieces day-in-day-out through uninterrupted distractions…

How does one then nurture and cultivate productivity in the absence of distractions❓

✅ Practice self-discipline by making changes that put an end to time-wasting habits 

➡️ For the next 15 days, consider a time audit on what is done every 30 minutes, and identify whether the tasks are productive OR “merely busy”

✅ Often a lack of productivity and creativity is linked to us being stressed in not achieving our goals

➡️ To reduce stress, start creating an emotional link to your goals – this will help stimulate the right disciplines and actions.

✅ Lastly, get enough sleep and use the last hour before bedtime as “downtime”

➡️ Proper rest rejuvenates the brain and leads to bursts of creativity, so don’t underestimate getting enough rest if you want to be the next “hit” in the world❗️

💧 Creativity isn’t a rare gift enjoyed by the lucky few – it’s a natural part of the human brain and behaviour. Don’t let distraction kill your creativity 💧

The 3 minute self gratitude technique

The 3 minute self gratitude technique

💡 Cultivating gratitude helps us re-frame our perspective. When we learn how to shift our mindset from what we think we want, need, or must accomplish to be successful, towards an attitude of appreciation for all that we have now, fulfilment arrives in our personal and professional lives.

Many may ask, how then does gratitude and entrepreneurship go hand-in-hand in light of boosting a business

✅ As entrepreneurs, stress may be evident especially at the early stages of a business lifecycle, and may result in depression, anxiety, or substance abuse.

➡️ By practicing gratitude, we create a powerful internal energetic force that supports our physical and emotional health during turbulent times.

✅ Remember, what we focus on expands, and so, whatever we put our attention on, we get more of. Focusing on problems only begets more problems❗️

➡️ To counteract this, and add some other benefits to our life, we include gratitude and optimism as a habit i.e. If we always look for the bad, are we not missing out on what’s good❓

✅ Many entrepreneurs believe happiness is a “nice to have” luxury that arrives after a lifetime of sacrifice. The truth…that’s bullsh*t❗️

➡️ When we are focused on creating meaningful purpose, impact and lead a life with intent, we begin to find connections and happiness in all we do, from people to clients to wealth creation.

💧 Spend three minutes a day scanning the world for three new things you’re grateful for. And do that for 21 days 💧

Beliefs have the power to create OR destroy

Beliefs have the power to create OR destroy

💡 Beliefs are an essential part of who we are, and what we think we are to the world out there. Sometimes our beliefs may be based on faith, but most often, in my experience, beliefs stem from our actual experiences.

For the longest time, I thought I was a failure (having failed to launch a few start ups in the early stages of my career). Once I started believing that I was a failure who couldn’t complete something, my ability to complete anything dropped to just about zero.

WHY…

✅ Cause I had a built in excuse from past experiences.

✅ But, after introspection and investing in my own personal development, I realised, this is not how the people I admire in life talk and do things, let alone they themselves had multiple failures along the way…

The solution…

✅ The next time we may have a self-limiting belief, ask, is this empowering me to grow and reach my ultimate goal, or is it disempowering me by creating a self-inflicted obstacle❓

💎 If we argue over our faults and problems, who will argue for our goals and successes? Embrace the past as an opportunity to learn from, and not to hold onto 💎

Know the direction, and the destination arrives…

Know the direction, and the destination arrives…

💡 Success is a climb. It’s a journey. It’s lifelong and built with undulating and unpredictable ups and downs, especially for those venturing into entrepreneurship as success is built upon risk, change, and personal development.

This entrepreneurial journey teaches us how to cope with failure, embrace and celebrate the small wins and get up to push onward towards our dreams.

Yet many a time, at the first instance of failure, some of us may feel the need to give up. Why?

✅ Conventional wisdom advises that one spends time knowing exactly where to go and the steps to get there. This assumes a clear destination with a clear path of preparation.

This wisdom is outdated though, especially in the context of entrepreneurship, and our approach should rather embrace the following:

✅ Understand that true growth occurs when we start taking steps towards what we want in light of our purpose, our why (both in our individual capacity and business).

✅ When we focus our efforts on the impact we create, together with the lives we change as part of our existence, we begin to attract mini destinations in light of our ultimate end destination.

💧 Don’t believe destination to be a place. Visualize destination as a feeling; the experience of what it feels like to deeply move, help, and contribute to the world at large 💧

When there’s darkness, light a match

When there’s darkness, light a match

💡  We all may experience dark and troublesome times in life – but what differs those who progress vs those who stagnate, is how they tackle these situations…

In 2015, my own world fell apart in various areas of my life, and so whether it’s a business gone horribly wrong, relationship matters or career challenges, by following the steps below, one can potentially change what is deemed ‘un-fixable’ in life to “fix-able”…

Be a parent to your mind

➡️ Dark places are hard to be in. What changed my thinking was when someone said I needed to talk to my mind like a child. I needed to comfort my mind with this one sentence: “Everything is going to be okay.”

Declare war on your fear

➡️ Fears can drive our life when we are in a dark place. By declaring war on my fears, we challenge them to a duel. Write down a list of your biggest fears and then commit to facing them, slowly.

Self investment is the best investment

➡️ By investing in a personal development course, coach or mentor, we ignite a catalyst for change. 

💎 One will never know what message they need to hear during a dark time, but if we show up for long enough, that message soon enough will arrive 💎
