The 3 Essential Tools for Building a Life You Love (Part 1)
I'm constantly reminding my clients of three important tools and mindset shifts that are the foundation for creating the life and happiness they desire. These three tools are so essential, so fundamental and sometimes so hard to remember and implement in our day-to-day lives.

Take total ownership of everything

Take total ownership of everything

Take personal responsibility for your successes, failures, your health, your happiness, etc.

Personal responsibility does not involve blaming yourself or anyone else. It's about empowering yourself to create the life, success and happiness that you desire. It's about becoming solutions-focused and making the necessary changes in your life to produce better results.

Make the shift

... from a blame-based mindset to one of solutions and collaboration. 

When you're feeling stuck, unfulfilled or disconnected from who you are, it can be easier to blame outside circumstances and people.

Take a step back in every situation and ask yourself what you did to allow this to happen. Once you are aware of how you contributed to the situation, you can make the necessary changes in your life.

When it is not your fault

Regardless of what happens to you, be it a disease or a natural disaster, you are 100 percent responsible for how you choose to react.

The life-changing magic happens when you make the choice to respond positively. That is how you take personal responsibility when something completely out of your control makes an impact on your life.

A productivity system for your goals and efforts

The productivity system is not just about getting more work done - it's about organising all of your goals and efforts.

When it comes to self-improvement, people can face two problems:

  • They don't feel they have enough time or energy.
  • They fail to follow through.

A productivity system, built correctly, solves both of these problems.

The easiest win you can make is regular exercise

Exercise sharpens your mind and improves your mood. It is also entirely under your control.

It is recommended that you start with an exercise schedule that involves exercising at the same time every weekday so that it quickly becomes a habit. If you feel you are too busy, focus on high-intensity workouts for 20-30 minutes at a time.

Yoga and other forms of exercise

Although the research on yoga is still weak, based on the available findings, Yoga is probably just as good for your health as many other forms of exercise. 

It seems particularly promising for improving lower back pain and — crucially — reducing inflammation in the body.

Unclear benefits of Yoga

There is no certainty whether some forms of yoga are better than others, whether yoga should be prescribed to people for various health conditions, and how yoga compares with other forms of exercise. 

There's also no good evidence behind many of the supposed health benefits of yoga, like flushing out toxins and stimulating digestion.

Mindsets in the workplace

We spend half of our day at work (and even more) and both our mindset and the mindset of those around us will have a significant impact on our life, especially the mindset of our leaders.

The fixed mindset in the workplace

  • It doesn’t easily allow you to change course.
  • It doesn't  believe in growth,  but in right and wrong and any suggestion of change or adaptation is considered a criticism.
  • Challenges or obstacles tend activate defensive mechanisms.
  • When something goes wrong, it doesn't take responsibility- it blame others because that would be akin to accepting inferiority.
  • Believes in a world of hierarchy: where some people are superior and some are inferior. 

Creating a growth-mindset environment

  • Presenting skills as learnable
  • Conveying that the environment values learning and perseverance, not just ready-made genius or talent
  • Giving feedback in a way that promotes learning and future success.
