How to Change Habits: Servants or Masters | Be inspired for a better life | Scoop.it

To create certainty, we develop habits that allow us not to think and re-think everything we do. Habits are automatic rules of behavior that help us feel safe. However, habits can heal us or kill us.

Becoming a Disciplined Person | Little Things Matter

Becoming a Disciplined Person | Little Things Matter | Be inspired for a better life | Scoop.it

Self-discipline is a pattern of behavior where you choose to do what you know you should do, rather than what you want to do. It’s the inner power that pushes you to get out of bed to exercise rather than sleeping in. It is the assertion of willpower over more basic desires and is synonymous with self-control.

It includes having the personal initiative to get started and the stamina to persevere. Being disciplined gives you the strength to withstand hardships and difficulties, whether physical, emotional or mental. It allows forgoing immediate satisfaction, in order to gain something better, but which requires effort and time...

How to Keep Your Cool and Achieve Emotional Balance

How to Keep Your Cool and Achieve Emotional Balance | Be inspired for a better life | Scoop.it
Joe Wilner writes a great post for CYT on how to achieve emotional balance when situations trigger us.

 

We can experience a whirlwind of emotions ranging from thrilling to devastating, and if we’re not prepared to deal with them, emotions can lead us to do some very irrational things.


If you’ve ever heard the saying, “I was so mad I couldn’t think straight,” you have an idea of the importance of emotional balance. We tend to think less clearly and thoroughly when we are highly emotional.

 

Any emotional extreme can lead us to make hasty decisions we might later regret. Even when emotions are positive our behavior can be erratic and unpredictable. We want to learn how to balance our state of mind to most effectively deal with others and certain situations that trigger us...

Crossing the Bridge

Crossing the Bridge | Be inspired for a better life | Scoop.it

It’s difficult to create a life of abundance until you have a truly inspiring vision of what life will be like on the other side.

 

Many people try to move towards abundance because they’re fed up with scarcity. They’re tired of working at jobs they semi-dislike just to pay the bills. They notice the years passing and don’t feel they have much to show for it. These people seldom escape that reality, however, because that level of thinking actually reinforces scarcity.

 

Abundance is much easier to create once you get clear about what you’ll do with it. Why bother with it? Who cares? What will life be like on the other side? Is it just the absence of some annoyances? Is there something more to it?

Leadership mantra : Faith

Leadership mantra : Faith | Be inspired for a better life | Scoop.it
Faith or the certainty of its capacity to move towards success. 

 

You know those days when nothing or very little work or we wonder what we did in the world to be in this situation!

 

During these phases, doubt and despondency can settle transiently, see permanent for some. It is in these moments that faith in our abilities and our values of life becomes important and makes the difference.

 

“A man of courage is also full of faith.” Marcus Tullius Cicero

 

Even if faith does not avoid completely doubt, it contributes significantly to the restoration of tranquility, which is more rapid, and largely reduces the frequency of doubts.

Change Any Habit Painlessly: 6 Tips

Change Any Habit Painlessly: 6 Tips | Be inspired for a better life | Scoop.it
Almost everything you currently do... you can do even better. Here's how.

 

Want to change an old habit? You probably should: One study determined that over 40% of the "decisions" we make every day aren't really decisions.

 

They're habits.

 

Much of the time we don't really make decisions. We do what we've done before, and that makes us less productive, less effective, less healthy and fit—less everything—than we could be.

 

So what can we do? Change an old habit into a new habit.

 

While changing a habit isn't easy, it is simple—especially if you follow the process described by Charles Duhigg, the author of the bestselling book The Power of Habit. (Definitely worth a read, especially if you want to harness the power of habits to improve not just yourself but also your team or business.)

The Fifty Success Habits

The Fifty Success Habits | Be inspired for a better life | Scoop.it

So I thought that I might write a quick review of every self-help book ever written all right here in this one little post. Simple enough. I love the easy jobs. Surely it couldn’t be that hard, could it? I figured that maybe I could take the important lessons from every self-help book I’ve read and every life experience I’ve endured, condense all that into fifty key points and save everybody a whole bunch of reading time. Sure, global book sales in the self-help field might take a down-turn for a decade or so, but I’m willing to take that chance and put in a solid sixty minutes (or so) work for the good of humanity; my gift to mankind.

 

Selfless I know.

7 Smart Ways to Build Self Confidence

7 Smart Ways to Build Self Confidence | Be inspired for a better life | Scoop.it

“Your perception of yourself has an enormous impact on how others perceive you.” – Erin Falconer of Pick the Brain.


“If you really put a small value upon yourself, rest assured that the world will not raise your price.” ~Author Unknown

 

I believe the best way to build self confidence is by broadening your life experiences. When you work hard to increase your knowledge, skills and experiences, you’ll automatically become a confident person.

 

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage. ~Anaïs Nin, Diary, 1969

 

As you constantly increasing your exposure to life, you’ll build your confidence in mastering or doing anything.

 

Confidence is something that you have to workout like a muscle.

 

You can’t be confident at everything. We all lack confidence in some areas of life that we are not familiar with.

Don't Worry About What You Can't Control

Don't Worry About What You Can't Control | Be inspired for a better life | Scoop.it

This is lesson #48 from my book Little Things Matter, 100 Ways to Improve Your Life Today.

If you are like most people you probably spend more time worrying than you should. Worrying about job security, project deadlines, health, shrinking budgets, rising taxes, the housing market, world poverty, our children’s safety, even the weather. Some things we can control, others we clearly cannot. The key to maintaining a positive attitude in life is to know the difference.

I heard years ago that 92 percent of the things people worry about are beyond their control.

If you are troubled about something you can control, like whether you are going to lose your job, then step up your game. Come in early, stay late, offer to work on a weekend, or volunteer to take on additional responsibilities; do anything you can think of to increase your value. If you end up losing your job, you can bet you’ll get a better reference...

Our Lives are a Mirror Image of the Little Decisions we Make

Our Lives are a Mirror Image of the Little Decisions we Make | Be inspired for a better life | Scoop.it

Over my career I have read and heard thousands of quotes from great leaders, but there is one I replay in my mind more than any other. Jim Rohn, one of the greatest personal development teachers of our time said, “Success comes from making a series of good decisions over time, while failure comes from making a series of bad decisions over time.” I believe this is one of the most accurate statements of human achievement ever articulated.

 

Decisions to Ponder

Every day we each make hundreds of little decisions, most of which seem inconsequential at the time. But every decision—no matter how little—will lead us closer to or further from our goals.

 

Today’s lesson will focus on what I define as “either/or” decisions, because you’re deciding to “either” do something “or” not do something...

7 Powerful Actions to Bring Your Life in Balance Today

7 Powerful Actions to Bring Your Life in Balance Today | Be inspired for a better life | Scoop.it

How complete is your life? Can you say that you are 100% satisfied with the direction that your life is going, with your relationships, your goals and your health?


Some people call this type of life completion “control,” others call it “inner peace” but I call it “life balance.” It really doesn’t matter what you call it, the only thing that matters is whether you have it.

 

So, do you feel in balance today?

 

Imagine your ordinary day. How does it start? How many things do you accomplish during the day? How do your relationships unveil during the day? Do you spend enough time with the people you love and care about? At the end of the day do you feel that you have completed everything to make this day great or do you feel that you have accomplished a lot but still are missing something?...

The way we perceive our own worth as a person has a profound influence on every aspect of our life. Today’s culture sends a lot of mixed signals that can easily distort our views about what makes us a worthwhile person.

50 Things You Need To Give Up Today!

 

When you stop chasing the wrong things, you give the right things a chance to catch you.

 

So starting today…

Give up trying to be perfect. – The real world doesn’t reward perfectionists, it rewards people who get things done. Give up comparing yourself to others. – The only person you are competing against is yourself. Give up dwelling on the past or worrying too much about the future. – Right now is the only moment guaranteed to you. Right now is life. Don’t miss it. Give up complaining. – Do something about it. Give up holding grudges. – Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness. Give up waiting. – What we don’t start today won’t be finished by tomorrow. Knowledge and intelligence are both useless without action. Read more: http://share2aware.com/archives/4612

Here, you can imagine, is the big difference.

 

Why am I talking about this today? Just because our attitude is dictated by this dialogue. If you are in the unpleasant and negative plan, it goes without saying that it will be difficult for you, to have a full and balanced life – which should ultimately be the goal of all of us.

How to Keep Creating a New Habit When You Feel Like Giving Up | Be inspired for a better life | Scoop.it

Now, creating a new habit isn’t always easy. You often start out all enthusiastic and excited. But since you usually have to keep doing it every day for about 30 days or once a week for a whole lot of weeks to make the habit into something that sticks and feels natural it becomes harder after a while.

 

Life may interfere. Perhaps you get overwhelmed at work or at home. Maybe you go away for a vacation or a conference somewhere. Or maybe – because change is scary and could be harmful – your mind starts to create thoughts that that try to persuade you to quit this new and possibly positive change.
