Chaos Driven Success: How to Escape The Valley of Despair

Chaos Driven Success: How to Escape The Valley of Despair

Chaos Driven Success. The economy is once again going into a period of absolute chaos. This is GREAT news for the prepared but TERRIBLE news for people clutching to failed strategies, practices, and out-dated thinking…

Phil Knight is right.

Chaos is inevitable but it can be managed with the right leadership skills.

With the right skills, you grow powerful and successful.

Wealth, freedom, opportunity, and respect are your rewards.

Permit chaos to rule, you will die broke, humiliated, and stupid.

Regrets will take the place of results and you either give up, give in, or work yourself to death trying everything…

The Passion Habit: First Ask WHY?

Passion is one of those words that people use often without really understanding the original meaning of the word.

When most people refer to “passion”, they use it to mean strong emotions reflecting an intense desire or boundless enthusiasm.

That’s a good start.

But passion actually means something entirely different:

A Willingness to Suffer for What You Love.

The Wellness Habit

Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices towards a healthy and fulfilling life.

It is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth.

A good or satisfactory condition of existence; a state characterized by health, happiness, and prosperity; welfare.

“Wellness is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” – The World Health Organization.

According to several studies, the most common health problem in the world is depression. This problem is often manifested in the form of insomnia, stress, poor nutrition, physical inactivity, obesity, and heart disease, etc.

Irrespective of a person’s age, size, shape or perceived attractiveness, it is wellness that is the cornerstone of quality of life. It determines how we ultimately look, feel, interact with others and thrive in life and work.

The Authenticity Habit

The Truth Will Set You Free…

You’ve heard this your whole life.

But it is hard to know what is true, factual, and absolutely authentic.

Fake news, fake photos, fake people…

They live to deceive.

Which, they believe gives them power.

In fact, the opposite is true.

Samuel Smiles said it best…

The Goals Habit

I love to start with a common definition, but we all know what a goal is and can mouth the meaning easily…

A GOAL is a DREAM with a DEADLINE.

You have some dream — more money, a second home, real career power — whatever, so the only question is, WHEN do you expect it to show up?

A great goal presupposes you know the big WHY…

And believe you have the skills to make it happen… the big HOW.

With the what, when, how, and why set the outcome is simple to see…

You either can take the actions necessary to achieve it, or not.

The Leadership Habit

What is leadership? A simple definition is that leadership is the art of motivating a group of people to act towards achieving a common goal.

In a business setting, this can mean directing workers and colleagues with a strategy to meet the company’s needs.

This leadership definition captures the essentials of being able to inspire others and being prepared to do so. Effective leadership is based upon ideas (whether original or borrowed), but won’t happen unless those ideas can be communicated to others in a way that engages them enough to act as the leader wants them to act.

The Miracle Habit

The term Miracle has a very simple definition…

A surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency… a highly improbable or extraordinary event, development, or accomplishment that brings very welcome consequences.

A miracle is an event so marvelous that it seems like it was sent from above. Catching that foul ball from the stands at the World Series? A miracle!

Making Goals a Habit…

SET GOALS is the fourth color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum, because you can’t make the leap from here to your vision, all in one jump. You can’t just “do” a mission. You need specific, tangible targets to give you immediate direction — ones which will lead thereafter to even greater destinations.

When you set specific GOALS, you target future accomplishments with precision and clarity. The first step in getting “EVERYTHING” you want is to specify exactly what “EVERYTHING” is.

Honor Is a Driving Force of Success

To understand why HONOR is critical to your success, click play on the Smarter in a Minute clip above  >> take a breath  >> and THINK >>

When we think of a giant word like excellence we generally see it through the lens of quality or worth.

Like excellence, a lack of honor drives you further away from the life you love.

A life of high worth and achievement.

According to the urban dictionary, Honor has many uses, all of them good. If you are called a man of honor, you are respected. If someone honors you, they recognize and award you for your achievements.
