Forming Healthy Addictions for Business Success

by admin, No Comments »

titleForming Healthy Addictions for Business SuccessHealthy addictions make it easier to go through each day and make sure that you are taking care of what is importantin your life and can help you to be successful in your business

 We are going to touch on several different areas in your life that healthy addictions could be very beneficial to you.

You may have more areas on your list and that is great, here is a short list we made.








 And here are the ways that forming healthy addictions in these areas will improve the quality of your life and make you more successful in your business.

Fitness:  This one doesn’t take a brain to figure out because everyone one knows that you just feel better when you have an elevated fitness level and that you are taking care of your body.  How do you form healthy addictions in this area?  Love what you do for exercise.  This may send you on a search but by trying a wide variety of activities you may find something that you would have never tried.  Your body will start to rely on this physical activity and eventually start to crave it.  Can you imagine what an elevated IQ could do for your business? That is what exercise can do for you.

Nutrition:  So vital to our health but so often overlooked.  Even as a fitness professional for many years I had to admit that nutrition is more important to health than Exercise.  That does not minimize the importance of exercise but we all need to realize that the nutrition is the fuel for the physical activity.  Without the proper fuel then we are not working up to our full capabilities.  The first thing to start forming the healthy addictions in this area is to drive right by the drive through window.  Shop the perimeter in the grocery store with just a few exceptions such as jarred organic spaghetti sauce because it can be used for so many different things but watch the sodium.  Good nutrition makes for clearer thinking.

Business: This is where the healthy addictions start to stack up.  Although healthy addictions related directly to your business are important, the stacking of the healthy addictions start to come into play here.  Healthy addictions in fitness will benefit you with renewed energy, vitality, clear thinking and overall well being.  Healthy addictions in nutrition will allow you to feel better and less sluggish, stay in better shape, lower cholesterol and other artery blocking conditions allowing more blood flow to your brain and heart.  Now I think you are starting to see how this will set you up for business success.

In your actual business start your healthy addictions in time management first because that will allow you to be more productive right off the bat.  Form the healthy addiction of not letting things take you off your course, don’t answer the phone or messages until it is convenient for you.

Travel:  Healthy addictions stack up on this one as well.  If you have healthy fitness addictions maintain them when you travel, modifying them if needed.  Don’t change your healthy nutritional habits when you travel because chances are you will have a stomach ailment or just generally won’t feel that well so these are very important addictions to maintain.  If you take supplements (everyone should) don’t stop just because you are traveling because that is when you need them the most.  Form healthy addictions like washing your hands often and you will stay healthier when traveling.  A sick person is not an effective person it is of utmost importance to stay well and on top of your game expecially in business.

Hobbies:  Healthy addictions like cleanliness comes into play here, we have seen our share of totally trashed “hobby” rooms.  Keep the hobby fun and clutter free, be at the top of your game in your fitness, nutrition and business healthy addictions.  Healthy business addictions are important here because you need some cash in order to have a hobby because I haven’t seen many free ones.  Hobbies are important all in them self because they promote pleasure and overall health.

Philanthropy:  Stay ahead of the game with healthy business, fitness, nutritional, and travel addictions when it comes to the philanthropic activities that you enjoy.  All of these will come into play with clearer thinking, better decision making, ability to travel with little disturbance, feeling better due to a well balanced diet with supplemental support.  Good decisions need to be made on what organizations we choose to support so this is very important to us.

 Entrepreneurial:  For the same reasons that are important for Philanthropy, healthy addictions are important to being an entrepreneur.  You have to be quick to spot an opportunity and find a way to get it done, we find it helps to be in top physical shape so we have formed our healthy fitness and nutritional addictions, they are habits, they are a part of the way we live our daily lives.

If you have any Healthy Addictions we would love to hear about them and how they benefit you in your life..

Who’s Watching Your Back inYour Business?

titleWhos Watching Your Back inYour Business?

You Have to be a fighter

We all seem to be getting used to the bad economy we are experiencing, we like comparing our self to others that aren’t doing as well as we are, when in reality we aren’t much better.  Why this comparison should make anyone feel better about their own circumstances is really beyond me.

The states are all attempting to balance their budget and they are coming up with new tactics to raise funds.

Have you talked to anyone lately who has been pulled over and not ticketed? I sure haven’t, in fact the cops right now are looking for infractions to site the public on.  They pull you over for one thing and add on what ever they can before they let you go.

I recently noticed that speed limits signs had been changed near our home, they must have changed them in the middle of the night because it was that quick.  Along with the change in the speed came the radar patrol to catch the people doing the speed they have gone since there was speed limits.  No warnings, just citations.

Is this what our local governments have planned to raise funds?

It’s already bad enough that they want to eliminate physical education completely from our schools, every fee has increased at local government levels.  We used to be builders and in one year the permit for a single family home went from $14,000 to $23,000 and the government is hollering for affordable housing when it is the very government that is making housing un-affordable, not that it really matters because in the month of May new home purchases plunged 33%  to an all time low.

That’s how it goes in the big city.

I was interested to open a news paper for a small town in Central Oregon and find all sorts of ways that the city is trying to help the residents that have been hit pretty severely by the recession, They have been hit so hard that people are moving away.  The city is forgiving parking tickets (with certain criteria)  and they are actually LOWERING fees.

I realize it is small but it is a start.  Our local governments will have to realize you can’t squeeze blood from a turnup.  People are stretched to their limits right now and many are to the point of breakingWe keep hearing that the economy is improving but the hard cold facts are that it sure doesn’t feel like it.

Many people are suffering and now it seems that many of them will be receiving their last unemployment check, so what is next for them?

We asked that question several years ago and there were no easy answers.  The words that kept coming to us were re-invent yourself, or undergo transformation and that was all very sound advise but with no direction.

It doesn’t take very long for a person to realize that we have the choice to go in the direction that we want, it is selecting the direction that can be difficult. To find out about our greatest gift, Freedom of Choice click on the link.

Where do you see yourself in five years?  What do you want to be doing and how are you going to get to that point? These are the questions that will help you with your direction.

That is where the work begins.

Since our transformation we have found that in order to get what you want you need to put in the work, there is no other way, no short cuts but in the end the rewards are greater than what you set out to get. 

What that means is that we set our goals and where we wanted to be and because we were willing to work hard, step out of our comfort zone and give up a few things we were able to accomplish so much more and go beyond the goals we had set and this is possible for anyone to do.

With the right leaders to show you the way, you can achieve your goals if you are determined to never stop until you achieve them.

Doing Business On YOUR Terms

titleDoing Business On YOUR TermsHow many times do you let people give their opinion and it changes your mind like a detour in a road?

 Here’s the thing, we plan and we have dreams.  We do our best to go down the path that will take us to where we want to go.  It is hard enough to get to that place for some of us.

 But when we finally do figure it all out we are excited and we share our excitement with others.  This is where the issues come in.

 We, all of us as humans have opinions.  Our opinions are formed from the things in our lives that we have experienced.  We have all had different experiences: that is part of what makes us all different.

 Our Experiences have brought us to a point that we are, here with our opinion, just waiting to encroach on someone else’s dream.

 So do you do things on your own terms or do you let others opinions put up a road block on the road to your dreams?

 It is important to have a clear picture of what you want to achieve.  With this vision and your own determination you will get to your destination what ever that may be.  Your destination might not be the place on the map that you first selected but you have arrived there with tweaks to your plan.

 If you listen to others and let them influence your decision you might not ever get to that spot. 

 People want to “save” you from failure and so they share their opinions. 

 Failure is part of the growing process and if you skip steps on the way you will have to experience those failures later.   Remember when you were a kid and you got “grounded”?  If given half a choice wouldn’t you have rather been spanked and then had your freedom back the next day?  I know I would.

 The reason I mention this is because when someone “saves” you from failure it works like being grounded.  The failure (lesson) is out there, it’s like being grounded because before the lesson is learned you can’t fly.  You needent worry, the failure (lesson) is there waiting to “spank” you.

 Remember to set your goals and visit them each day, tweak them if need be.

 Create a path that you are going to follow and a system that you are going to implement.

 Be willing to fail more than one time, learn from the failure and move on.

 No person is always 100% successful, no matter how great the person.

 Dream big, nothing is out of reach if you believe.

 Stick to these principles and do things on your own terms and your life will be fulfilling, meaningful and a joy to live.

You have been given the greatest gift.
