Rohn: The 4 Powerful Ways to Change a Bad Habit

Rohn: The 4 Powerful Ways to Change a Bad Habit | Learning At Work | Scoop.it
No one understands as I do the inherent difficulty in changing old and persistent habits. But habits begin to change when we begin to change our perceptions.


Most of us don’t experience a cataclysmic transformation. No, for most of us change comes as an evolutionary process of almost imperceptible changes. We just keep nudging ourselves in the right direction, forming one or two better habits.


But what really makes us sit up and take notice? What really causes us to shed our old habits and take action?

(From the article): The best definition for “resolve” I’ve ever heard came from a schoolgirl in Foster City, California. Many years ago, I was lecturing about success to a group of bright kids at a junior high school. I asked, “Who can tell me what ‘resolve’ means?” Several hands went up, and I did get some pretty good definitions. But the last was the best. A shy girl from the back of the room got up and said with quiet intensity, “I think resolve means promising yourself you will never give up.” That’s it! That’s the best definition I’ve ever heard: Promise yourself you’ll never give up.

(From the article): As jazz legend Miles Davis once said, if you hit a sour note, it’s the next note that makes it good or bad. Make the best of a bad situation, and turn your decision into a minor mistake in the context of the whole.

 

Take what you’ve learned and channel it into doing better, so the next note and the next are excellent; and before long, people will forget the sour one.

Rejection is the worst. It was painful when you were a child, and it doesn’t feel any better as an adult.

But there are ways to minimize your risk of rejection when asking for something you want, says Susan Krauss Whitbourne, PhD, a psychology professor at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

In a recent article for Psychology Today, Whitbourne offers 10 tips to avoid rejection.

Frank Richard Rossi's curator insight, November 25, 1:21 PM

20 things successful people don’t do was a great eye opener for me. As I read all of the things that successful people don’t do I noticed many of these qualities I have seen in exhibited in me. But the difference between seeing them in me and actually applying these skills to my  life is a whole other battle.  I believe that within myself is a fire for success that is unmatched by anyone I’ve ever met.  I have changed everything about myself in the last few months to get ready for my future ahead, and nobody will stop me. I know this because I have failed so many times early on in my life that I have learned from my own mistakes, as well as many of my peers I used to look up to. One of the hardest things I have had to change to help better myself is surrounding me with positive people, with similar goals as me. When I read this in the article it hit home. In the summer time and junior year I was always where the fun was at and worrying about the wrong things, I wasn’t focused. I’m glad I realized this at the start of this year and I have removed myself from that “scene”.  It was really hard at first. I felt alone and abandoned and I got ridiculed by the “friends” I used to be so close with. As we reach closer and closer to the end of senior year it has become apparent that all of those friends I sort of left for the benefit of me are asking me for help and wondering what they can do to get out of this phase they all seem to be stuck in.  I usually tell them to look at the big picture, and realize that there is way more to life than Mill Creek. The people I associate myself with nowadays share my dreams and I am happier overall. Applying all 20 qualities I read in this article will help me use the college I end up going to for my advantage, and get ahead in the business management and administration field I feel I am so destined to be in.

3 Ways We Confuse Emotions with Emotional Intelligence

3 Ways We Confuse Emotions with Emotional Intelligence | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

It often surprises my executive coaching clients how important their emotions are to their workplace success. Most of us have been trained to keep our emotions out of the office, so we let lag an ongoing investment in our Emotional Intelligence (EQ). Part of the problem is that investing in developing EQ is work that doesn’t always have an immediate payoff, and most of us are focused on results now! But part of the problem is a fundamental misunderstanding about what EQ is. EQ is not having emotions, it’s understanding them, in ourselves and others and responding constructively.

How to Handle Stress in the Moment | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

"You hear a lot of advice about how to reduce stress at work. But most of it is about what to do over the long term — take up yoga, eat a healthy diet, keep a journal, or get more sleep. But what do you do when you’re overcome with stress in the moment — at your desk, say, or in a meeting? Perhaps you’ve heard bad news from a client or were assigned yet another project. How can you regain control?"
