4 Ways To Give Your Self-Efficacy A Serious Boost

Boosting your self-efficacy is a simple, yet powerful way to improve the levels of success and happiness you experience in your life. Each of us has goals in life, but if we don’t believe in our ability to achieve them, then how are we ever going to be successful? In fact, according to the Theory of Planned Behaviour, if we boost our self-efficacy then it impacts both the goals we set for ourselves, as well as the amount of action we will take. If we have strong self-efficacy, we will aim higher with more ambitious goals as well as be more likely to follow through with the necessary goal-directed behaviours. However, with low levels of self-efficacy, we are likely not even to [...]

What is Optimism?

What is Optimism? Let's say there is a glass of water in front of you that contains 50% water. Does the way you look at the glass as either half full or half empty determine whether you are an optimist, or is there something more to the concept of optimism than this classic example suggests? Optimism is a characteristic that is admired in people. Having a positive outlook on life, always finding a sliver lining and generally seeing the best in people. Who wouldn't choose those qualities on the menu of life? What is the opposite? Negativity? Pessimism? It seems optimism and pessimism are pitched together in an eternal battle like good versus evil. The pessimist points out how it is raining [...]

Why You Should Stop Living Life On Autopilot

Ever feel like your life is on autopilot? Think about it, when was the last time you made a conscious decision to change something significant in your life? Every day is pretty much planned out for us before we wake up. Leave home in the morning to get to work on time. Take the same commute each day, seeing the familiar faces of people you see every day yet have never spoken to. Our diary is filled with meetings with other people's agendas. We eat at the same places, make the same lame joke each day as you leave the office, and get home where our primary focus is to conserve energy, just in case we need it tomorrow. If you don't [...]

Why Goal Setting Is Important In Sales Organisations?

Should salespeople set personal goals over and above their sales targets? I mean, targets are there for a reason, to motivate your sales team to perform and achieve the monetary incentives you have set for them. Many sales managers think this should be enough. So why do so many sales people miss their sales targets? And what does this have to do with organisations setting goals for sales people? When I ask sales people why the business has set them sales targets, and who they are for. The usual response I hear is “they are for the salesperson”, but this is WRONG. Sales targets are not for the person, they are for the shareholders. Businesses are required to plan and forecast revenue, [...]

How To Create Your Personal Breakthrough

Did you wake up this morning hoping today will be the day for your personal breakthrough? Everyday we see breakthroughs happen. A new artificial intelligence technology making waves in the market, a new overnight success actress stars in a Hollywood blockbuster, an IPO that makes the founders of a business billions in a single day. “When will I get my personal breakthrough?” We often see others having breakthroughs and wonder when it will be our turn. After all, we deserve just as much success as those people. We are just as talented, or smart, or determined as those people in the headlines, so surely our personal breakthrough is just around the corner? The problem is that we do not see what happened [...]

Productivity Hack – Audio Learning

I remember the moment a friend of me handed me my first audio training program. "Listen to this", he said. "I think you'll really like it!" He was right. This one audio program changed my entire approach to learning, reading and the way I consume content. The audio program my friend gave me was Personal Power II, by Tony Robbins. This audio training has been on sale for over 30 years now and has certainly impacted more lives than just my own. However, for me, it opened my eyes, and ears, to the idea of learning through another medium other than reading. At this point, getting audio learning content was not easy. Books had yet to begin the transformation into the audiobook, [...]

De-Stress To Hit Your Goals

If you imagine someone completely focused on achieving their goals, what sort of picture comes to mind? For most of us, we imagine someone working hard, pushing their body and mind to the limits to fulfil their dreams, not stopping until they realise their full potential. Stress and goals just seems to be a necessary combination. However, that stress could be the very reason we are having to work so hard in the first place. Neuroscientists can now differentiate between behaviours that are goal-oriented or habitual as they are supported by anatomically different brain systems. Research shows that goal-directed behaviour is related to the prefrontal cortex, whereas habitual activities seem to be coordinated by the dorsolateral striatum. The reason the prefrontal cortex [...]
