There a major problem with StrengthFinder Tests. They are meant for people who are unchanging and static. For the average Joe or Jane who watches 6 hours a TV everyday and goes to a job that they tolerate for 40+ years and then retires; they work fine.
These tests focus on who you are right now. Not who you want to be and what you want to do. They don’t integrate important factors such as your values and the environment you grew up in.
If you are a dynamic and constantly developing person, than you are going to need a different solution.
What follows below is a strengthsfinder for the dynamic, developing, multipotentialite who understands that who they are today and they person they will be in 10 years is massively different.
We all know what we should be doing, yet we have a hard time actually doing it. We are quick to judge others and slow to take action in our own lives.
Unsure of how our surrounding and environment affect us, we get mad at our lack of willpower, self control, lack of consistency and our inability to create habits that would ultimately get us ahead.
It’s time we understand what creates lasting change. It’s only after we understand this process that we can begin to make the changes that get us ahead of the competition and start doing the work that actually matters.
What follows is a process for understanding how to break bad habits and replace them with empowering ones. If you have bad habits that hold you back. This post is for you.
The zone is just a brainwave state
It’s important to know that “The Zone” is not a quasi-mythological state, but well researched brain wave state.
Research conducted by the Biocybernaut Institute shows that peak performers from Brady to Mark Cuban know how to generate peak performance when they need to. They understand how to calm their nervous system before big moments and can get generate performance boosting brain waves (almost at will).
Today’s post is about how top performers can use well researched methods and techniques to produce more Alpha brainwaves and get in the zone.
It’s a jungle out there.
We live in a soup of marketing messages, advertisements, and media channels that are constantly pull at our attention and awareness. Because we get so distracted, we give into the resistance and we stop doing work that matters. This is so bad, that many early entrepreneurs spend all day dreaming about success without making any real progress.
It’s a very narrow road to success and most of us don’t stay on the path.
To get ahead in this world, you need to be doing things differently than everyone else. You can’t be the person who spends 6+ hours a day watching TV, mindlessly internet surfing, or using your mental RAM to dream about what your “life would be like if you just had _____”.
You need a complete view of your life, a way of measuring the actions you take, how you spend your time, a method that allows you to know what’s working and what isn’t.
It was Friday and I forgot to bring my lunch (I hate it, when I do that!).
My coworker Blake (also without lunch) asked me if I wanted to go to The India Palace.
We grabbed plates and quickly started demolishing mouthfuls of basmati rice and tandoori chicken. In between bites of naan we started talking about our current life struggles including our financial, personal and spiritual goals.
Common conversation topics for me.
