Willpower/self-control is the ability to act the way you want to act when you find yourself in challenging situations. Take for instance a counselor who is handling anger, shouting and insults from patients. The normal human response to someone shouting is to fight back, be angry or run away. When counselor have been trained in staying calm, they have the "self-control" to do their job professionally with virtually no return of anger. Because the mind "goes back-brain" (into being controlled by the automatic pilot part of the brain instead of the thinking part) with elevated emotions, it's too late then, during a stressful moment, to depend on sheer willpower to manage yourself well. The better strategy is to build habits that will stand you in good stead when you need them. The Most Important Habit for Entrepreneurs – Sustain Positive States of Mind Business is life. There are ups and downs. Wins and losses. Fraud by employees, partners and customers that make you lose money. We know that. It’s the real world of business. Nothing is perfect. As the leader, things get done because of you. If you are procrastinating. Things stall. If you are not in a good mood, bad decisions can be made. Anger and rage can hurt relationships. Trust is lost, and momentum is lost. I asked this question to entrepreneurs in a seminar. Did you ever fail at something? Everyone then raised their hand. What made you fail, I asked? • I was angry and in rage because of fraud by a customer • I was lazy and too tired of the stress • I procrastinated too long and liked resting; social media stuff • I doubted myself and was full of fear as I lost money before • I was arrogant and did not listen to advice • I woke up in a bad mood that day and made a bad decision What is common is we fail because in the midst, of the stressful situation, our subconscious default was a negative state of mind. We do not have an autopilot brain to switch to a positive state or high- performance state in difficult situations. How you begin your days is how you live your day. This is the MOST IMPORTANT aspect if you want to achieve a 7-figure business in 2-years.
INSTALL A HABIT TO CREATE A HIGH-PERFORMANCE STATE OF MIND EACH MORNING Here are the 7 main reasons it is a MUST to have a MORNING ROUTINE 1. It sets the tone for the day. It is a game changer 2. It is what the top 5% of the world do 3. Genius is about your rituals, habits and routines. Your morning routine makes you a genius level performance. 4. Part of the morning routine is deliberate gratitude. Gratitude is the antidote for fear. 5. With better awareness, you make better choices and leads to better results 6. Your days are your life in miniature. You get consistent productive days. 7. Refuel your mind, body and spirit every day. Therefore, this will be the most important investment you can make in your life. You intentionally and patiently install a habit; a MORNING ROUTINE, that will place you in autopilot to be positive all the time. Research shows for habits that last, it will take 66 days. The first 20 days will be hard; the next 20 days confusion. The final 26 days is when magic happens. You will feel bad if you don’t do your morning habit. Attached is a morning habit chain used by top performers that you can model. “Sow a thought and you reap an action; sow an act and you reap a habit; sow a habit and you reap a character; sow a character and you reap a destiny.”― Ralph Waldo Emerson If you want to learn more on how to scale up your business using fast and simple solutions then join our Leapfrog Your Business and Yourself Workshop on Nov 15-17 at Citadines Ortigas.
