Self Improvement Sabotage: Too Tipsy to Tango

April 26, 2023

by Aaron Potts

What good is self improvement and personal development if you turn around and sabotage your own efforts by celebrating prematurely? We’ve all done this in some fashion or other, regardless of what our original goal was.

In the case of weight loss, we’ve all worked really hard at exercising and eating right for a month, lost 5 or 10 pounds, and then went WAY overboard on the reward process. After eating in such a healthy manner and forcing ourselves to workout for 30 days, we show some serious progress, and decide that we deserve a few days off.

Friday night starts with a nice dinner and some drinks, which eventually turns into several drinks plus dessert, and Saturday morning finds us feeling dehydrated, hung over, and nutrient deficient.

By the time Sunday rolls around, we aren’t feeling the effects of Friday night’s drink fest anymore, but we did eat very poorly on Saturday as a result of feeling too under the weather to really care, and we certainly didn’t exercise. We make a token effort at eating in a healthy manner on Sunday, but are only marginally successful, and as we are getting ready for another busy week, we can’t seem to find the time to exercise.

6 Dangerous Reasons People Do Not Set Goals and Never Succeed

April 25, 2023

life hacksBy Joshua Uebergang

Goal setting is the framework for personal achievement. It is the backbone of becoming a person you desire to be. Setting and achieving personal goals will guarantee you success. Most people who do set goals have little to no understanding of goal setting and as a result fail to achieve them and never succeed. You would think that if goal setting was the ultimate skill and secret to success that everyone would develop their own personal goals and learn to achieve them. Unfortunately, the world is not that perfect. There are six dangerous reasons people do not set and achieve their goals which act like a road block to their success.

There are several reasons why people do not set goals similarly to why people do not care about communicating effectively. I know with absolute certainty that everyone will experience a more successful and far enjoyable life if they learned to communicate effectively. Arguably the greatest modern day personal development Coach, Anthony Robbins said, “The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives.” Effective communication determines the quality of your life with others while self development determines the quality of your inner life.

The first reason I believe why people do not set goals is they do not see its importance. Like people who do not develop their communication and other aspects of themselves, they do not see the importance of setting goals. I have met people who are unbelievably resistant to developing their communication. They have actually found it insulting to think they need to improve how they communicate! Every single person on the face of this Earth can always communicate more effectively and have their life improve as a result. Likewise, with goals there are people who do not see the importance of setting personal goals. Goal setting forms the foundations for personal achievement and it is of the utmost importance.

The second reason why people do not set goals is a fear of others caused from criticism. People criticize because they see faults in others or are brainwashed by society and other beliefs into thinking greatness cannot be achieved. They criticize to hold people back from achieving goals. Average people do not want others to go beyond average. A person can fear setting goals because each time they have set goals in the past, others have criticized and shot down their dreams. Others impose their own self-limiting beliefs through criticism instilling fear within the person. Think of receiving criticism as a poisonous needle injected into your body. It slowly controls and destroys what you want. The destructive thought of fear controls the person from achieving anything remarkable. Put bluntly, screw what people think. Screw allowing people to destroy your life with their beliefs. Society is filled with endless garbage to prevent you from achieving your goals. If you want something, go and get it by setting and achieving personal goals.

Three Steps to Learning Anything Fast

April 23, 2023

By Jim Sarris

If you were thinking you could learn anything fast in just one step (maybe two), you’re in for a surprise. You see, there are 3 steps you need in order to learn anything fast (and easy, too!). The problem is, people (young and old), want to skip one of the steps and get right to the success part.

Well, these are the people that end up frustrated, discouraged, and unable to understand why they can’t seem to learn like other people. I’m here to tell you that it all comes down to these three points.

Step 1 - organize what it is you need to learn. If you’re studying, organize the topics and the material so that you understand the “whole story.” Not just isolated facts. That goes for a history test, a driver’s test, a pilot’s license test, you name it. When you have things organized, then you can see how different parts relate to each other and you develop an understanding.
