ABC TECHNIQUE

The ABC Technique is an approach developed by Albert Ellis and adapted by Martin Seligman to help us think more optimistically. The technique is based on our explanatory style. That is, how we explain difficult or stressful situations to ourselves, across dimensions of permanence, pervasiveness, and personalization.

SELF - CONTROL

Have you ever heard someone say, "I wish I had that kind of willpower ," when her friend orders the salad instead of the chicken? It's as if they are convinced some people were born with self control . But self discipline is a learned skill, not an innate characteristic.

There's no evidence that increased leisure time equates to increased self-discipline. In fact, it doesn't matter how much time you have but what you choose to do with your time, matters.

Similar to building physical muscle, your mental muscle requires intentional exercise. Over time, your self-discipline muscles can be built.

Leaders can choose to rely on Occam's razor. They can select the idea that makes the fewest assumptions. By choosing an idea that has the fewest unknowns a leader can safeguard against surprises and disasters.

You have an estimated 70,000 thoughts per day. That's 70,000 chances to build yourself up or tear yourself down.
