Personal Accountability II – 12.09.2019

Hey Millennial King,

How are ya?

Today’s blog is bought to you by the amount of comments that I got from my original “Personal Accountability – 08.26.2019″ blog post. I had a whopping 119 comments!!

Proof is below, I think I’m very proud of you all for inquiry on this underrated topic.

I wanted to return to this because you want to hear more about believing in yourself and how that relates to your goals, correct?

Not only that but you want to get better with what you feel passionately about.

NOT only that, you want to achieve your the highest success and be recognized that you do a fairly good job, if not, the only one to do an excellent job in your niche – at what others think is soo difficult to do.

Well first, I would love to continue the sequence of the original post. It asks us toward the end of it, “4 Words: Which one best describes…. you?” And then “What are you known for?”

  1. Outstanding
  2. Good
  3. Mediocre
  4. Lousy

Fail fast and start over!

If you are currently reading this, I’m 99.9% sure you are known for your ability to achieve in an outstanding nature. Whether that be volunteering at a charity, committing to the gym or giving yourself more down time. To you, it is crucial that you do an outstanding job, otherwise what it the point of throwing in your time and effort?

I feel you on that!

It is exactly how I stay on top of my goals. Let’s be honest, I do get the once in a blue moon days where I stay at home and binge watch Youtube. But for the most part I was never into half assing anything that had my name on it.

This doesn’t mean that I am trial and error proof. I set up projects and tend to add more food than I can chew. And then of course I realize my choice of timing was not fair to me.

Greatness is in your blood

You are destined for greatness and I truly believe that. You can achieve anything you imagine which is the greatest gift of life. I do whatever it takes. Meaning if I have to connect with a thousand people in a room as an introvert, I will do it. If I have to give up girls night, won’t sweat it. If I have to give up a full 8 hour sleep and grab 4 hours, so be it.

What are you deeply passionate about? Are you currently fulfilled?

What Type of Motivation Are You? – 11.04.2019

What Type of Motivation Are You?

It is astonishing to find out what motivates you on a daily basis. But more astonishing to find what makes us this way. The more we learn about how our minds work, the easier our habits can be altered to fit the goal we plan to achieve.

Below are 3 types of motivations with a description of each. Feel free to take a look at the diagram to share which one or two combinations best fit you!

Extrinsic – You are motivated by external possessions with a preference for recognition, awards and benefits. You tend to act on a goal based on your status.

Cons: You may feel inadequate when there is no reward or recognition

Intrinsic – You are motivated by internal values. You act on a goal that makes you feel joyous and fulfilled.

Cons: You may feel unworthy if you don’t achieve positive goals.

Addiction – You are motivated by feeling good.

Cons: The most destructive form of motivation.

How to Monitor Self Sabotage – 10.29.2019

How to Monitor Self Sabotage

You are here because you have at some point had a difficult time accomplishing your goals. Not only were you having a difficult time conquering but you realize that you are the problem.

Here are the 3 most common signs of self sabotage

  1. You hold onto self limiting beliefs – What are your immediate thoughts when creating a new goal? Do you believe in your obstacles more than you believe in yourself?
  2. You believe that life is happening to you, instead of happen through you – It is second nature for you to fall victim in your discussions with people and yourself.
  3. You are in agreeance with your negative self talk. Even though you know these thoughts don’t empower, you have formed a belief around your worries.
  4. There isn’t really a fourth point here but in order to be proactive, let’s dive into how you can better manage your self sabotage. When you have a couple minutes, sit down. Pick up a notebook or journal and jot down three obstacles that hinder you from achieving your goal.

Now that you have clarity to what it is holding you back, allow yourself a moment to understand that you are accountable for breathing life into those obstacles. Take this notebook as a tool to combat your months, weeks or even years of self sabotage. Here are exercises that you can begin to practice.

  • Monitor your thoughts;
  • Pay more attention to the thought patterns that make you feel good,
  • Act on what brings you joy.

The 7 Universal Laws – 10.22.2019

How Do the 7 Universal Laws Affect You?

1. Law of Mentalism. The first law states, “All is mind– The universe is mental.” This means that the universe exists inside of the mental realm. Everything you see, hear and touch is part of this realm. It is a universal mind, where all things manifest, including your mind.

2. Law of Correspondence. The Law of Correspondence states, “As above, so below; as below, so above.” This means that there is a harmony among all the realms. The physical, spiritual and mental realms survive because of this harmony, of which you are bound to. You are a part of this harmony and can never remove yourself from it.

3. Law of Vibration.The third law states that, “Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.” The universe is made up of energy that vibrates at all times. Everything people are and everything you can see and hear are the result of these vibrations.

4. Law of Polarity. The fourth law states, “Everything is dual, everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree.” This law simply means that there are always opposites. However, the true God or Goddess is above all, even the fourth law.

5. Law of Rhythm. The Law of Rhythm states, “Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall.” The fifth law means that everything happens in cycles. You can rise above this law by being aware of its subtle movements.

6. Law of Cause and Effect. The Law of Cause and Effect states, “Every cause has its effect; every effect has its cause.” This law states that everything you do, no matter how insignificant causes an effect in the universe.

7. Law of Gender. The last of the universal laws states, “Gender is in everything; everything has its masculine and feminine properties.” This law affects all things that have opposite sexes or opposite polarity.

What are your thoughts on how your life relates to the 7 universal laws?

5 Hawaiian Concepts to Live By – 09.03.2019

5 Hawaiian Concepts to Live By

For many first-time visitors, Hawaii is a place where perfect weather and pristine beaches make for good vacationing and pretty postcards. But Hawaii is much more than its idyllic setting. For native Hawaiians and those lucky enough to call the islands home, Hawaii is a way of life and a way of thinking. The native Hawaiian concepts of pono, aloha, aina, ohana and mana are crucial to understanding how Hawaii has consistently ranked as the least stressed and happiest state in America.

Apply these concepts to your own life and you may begin to understand what all the fuss is about.

Pono – generally translates to righteousness. According to actor Jason Scott Lee, who grew up in Hawaii, living pono means living “with a conscious decision to do the right thing in terms of self, others, and the environment.”  The importance of pono, or doing what is morally right and selfless, is even found in the state’s mottos: “Ua Mau ke Ea o ka Aina i ka Pono,” or “The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.”

<<<>>>

Aloha – When you look up “aloha” in the Hawaiian dictionary, every warm and fuzzy word in the English language pops up: love, affection, compassion, mercy, sympathy, pity, kindness, sentiment, grace, charity. Aloha is most often used as a greeting or parting phrase to create an atmosphere of friendliness and love, but the aloha spirit is a part of everything in Hawaii: people surf with aloha, cook with aloha, and even write work emails with aloha. It’s as if people in Hawaii are constantly surrounded by an affirmation or mantra to live life with love.

<<<>>>

Aina means land. Life in Hawaii is lived outdoors – malls, homes, offices, and even the airport are built with open-air walkways, large windows, or lanais (balconies or patios) so you’re never fully indoors. Native Hawaiians see their identities and well being entwined with the land, and so respecting it and living in it are of the utmost importance. You don’t have to live in a tropical paradise to be connected to nature. Simply having lunch outside or taking a stroll through a park can help reconnect you to the aina.

<<<>>>

Ohana – as the movie Lilo & Stitch taught us, means family. The word comes from oha, which is the highly revered taro plant, and it signifies that all ohana come from the same root. Ohana is used to describe any group of people with a common bond; people in Hawaii have a community ohana, a friends ohana, even a work ohana. One of the clearest findings from happiness research is that humans are social creatures. Imagine how differently you would feel if you approached your work colleagues like they were your family.

<<<>>>

Mana – translates to power, but the native Hawaiian concept of power doesn’t equate to material possessions or what floor your office is on. Mana is a life energy that flows through all things and is highly individual: you have a chance to gain or lose mana in everything you do.

Perhaps one of the best examples of mana can be seen in the late Hawaii Senator Daniel K. Inouye’s life and career. The beloved Inouye was often described as soft spoken, modest and a man of integrity. His mana led him to be the second longest-serving senator in U.S. history. His last word was “aloha.”

Feel free to comment below about a life concept we can live by!

Monday for the Millennial – 07.29.2019

You are much more…

I find that many people have a frame of reference which dictates how capable they believe they are at a particular task, skill, or thing — and in-turn plays a role in what they attempt, which as you can imagine has an effect on what they end up achieving — be it personally or professionally.

You Are Far More Capable Than Any Shortcoming From Your Past…

Your frame of reference is often shaped by your past accomplishments, as well as those times where you’ve fallen short of your intended outcome. For example, in my own life I would definitely NOT be described as a math whiz.

In fact it’s fair to say that I was not very good at math at all in school. To this day I can tell you that my frame of reference (which was created in large part based on my past experiences) left me with the belief that I am not good at math which still sticks with me to this day. I don’t let it hold me back, but it does pop up in my mind from time to time.

If I’m really honest with myself, I have to confess that the reality is, for all I know, I might actually be good at math, if I were willing to put in extra time in study, or learn via different learning techniques. With all that said, my past experiences formed my frame of reference. The point here isn’t whether or not I could change this line of thinking. Perhaps you too have had past experiences which have shaped your frame of reference (both positively and negatively).

Whatever may have happened in your past, if it doesn’t serve to make you the person you want to be, you have in you the ability, through action and effort, the opportunity to change it to one that will serve you for the better.

Your frame of reference is important for several reasons — not the least of which is that it determines what you are willing to attempt in the first place, which of course is the starting point of everything with regards to the success process. If you don’t get started you can’t ever hope to succeed at any worthwhile endeavor. No amount of wishing alone will get you there.

Break Through Your Limiting Beliefs…

I love the story of Roger Bannister. The first man to ever run a  sub-four-minute mile. For years, many amazing athletes before him tried to break the elusive 4 minute time, but fell short. Interestingly, once he broke the record, before long, other athletes began doing the same, as well as breaking his time record.

What had kept all the athletes before Roger from breaking the 4-minute mile? Their own frame of reference that was built around the idea that”it couldn’t be done.” It took Roger to come along, and by overcoming the barrier, “re-frame” the way everyone saw the 4-minute mile, from one that couldn’t be broken, back to one that, like all goals, could be worked at, trained for, and eventually attained.

Friend, commit right here and now to go beyond those who stop just short of wishing for bigger and better results, and those who wake up everyday and set out about doing the daily work necessary to get where they want to go in life.

It’s Your Life, LIVE WORTHY!

Why are goals important? – 07.22.2019

Why are goals important? 

On the best sunny day, the most powerful magnifying glass will not light paper if you keep moving the glass. But if you focus and hold it, the paper will light up. That is the power of concentration.

<<>>

A man was traveling and stopped at an intersection. He asked an elderly man, “Where does this road take me?” The elderly person asked, “Where do you want to go?” The man replied, “I don’t know.” The elderly person said, “Then take any road. What difference does it make?”

How true. When we don’t know where we are going, any road will take us there.

Suppose you have all the football eleven players, enthusiastically ready to play the game, all charged up, and then someone took the goal post away. What would happen to the game? There is nothing left. How do you keep score? How do you know you have arrived?

Enthusiasm without direction is like wildfire and leads to frustration. Goals give a sense of direction. Would you sit in a train or a plane without knowing where it was going? The obvious answer is no. Then why do people go through life without having any goals?

What are the reasons you have goals? Have you added priority levels to them?
