HOW TO STAY MENTALLY HEALTHY AT WORK?


A child once called-out his dad (who seldom returns home early from work each day) after work one day and asked him, what his hourly pay was. The dad got angry why his son should be asking him such questions and even starting shouting at the wife for manipulating their son into asking for such things. The man’s reply was, why? The son replied I just want to know. Then the man said it was $100. The boy said thank you and went back to his room, took out his money save and starting calculating what he has been saving for months. He doled out a $100 dollar and returned back to his dad and said, ‘dad, here’s $100, I want to spend one hour with you before I go to bed tonight’.

The man felt so ashamed of himself. He had no excuse to make but to apologize to his little boy for not being there when he needed him the most and promised to be a better dad from that moment.

The subject of work-life balance is a concept that advocates proper prioritizing between work which includes (professional career and ambition) and “lifestyle” (health, pleasure, leisure, family and spiritual development/meditation).

Many organizations have and are still adopting the HR strategy that it is better to retain and help workers achieve a good life while working than to discard them and be faced with recruiting new ones.

According to Madonna Doyle & Associates, Work-life balance is a broad concept including proper prioritizing between career and ambition on one hand, compared with pleasure, leisure, family and spiritual development on the other.

The concepts of globalization, glocalization, high pressure, the craze for wealth has almost removed the traditional line between family values and work. Also, these changes have produced unprecedented wealth with a price. Millions of people are overworked, over-scheduled, overwhelmed and stressed out and there’s no end in sight.

So why is Balance Important in Life:

  •           For family;

  •          For recreation;

  •           For spiritual activities;

  •          For other areas of interest.

No area is supposed to suffer, lest, there will be a deficiency.

Consequences or the Impact of Work on Health:

  • Stress

  • Hypertension

  • Heart disease

  • Stroke

How Do You Maintain Mental Health at Work?

  • Plan your schedule per day and know how much task you can accomplish in a day. Do not over task yourself on a daily basis. The benefits of scheduling is to enable you avoid carrying over work into another day or working late, so you can go home to your family when it is time.

  • Take a Lunch Break: break time is meant for every worker to refill, stretch, and relief themselves of the pressures of work.

  • Set Realistic Deadlines: Your deadlines should be realistic enough to meet the SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-bound) model. Do not take over task which is meant for two persons and think you can complete it within a time it will require two persons to achieve it.

  • Take deserved leave: The purpose of annual leave is to provide employees with a reasonable period of rest and recreation, and a break from the workplace each year. It is not to be used for work. It is used to regain lost energy and refresh for future tasks. Try to take your leave seriously, in fact, if your organization permits, you can break it into two or try times within a year.

In conclusion, it is only the living that can enjoy what he/she has worked for. A person who managed his time well that can add value to life and vice versa. It is also a person who adds value to life that is reckoned with. Work will continue long after you’re gone.

Please share your thoughts.

To Your Success!

Life is a Process!


images (1)I have learned through good times and in bad times. I have come to the knowledge that life can’t be as rosy as we expect it. Even though the purpose is known, the process is still unknown and cannot be predicted by any man. Is any man able to foresee the path which he takes to greatness? If so, people will always easily find a way around certain situations because if cause is known, solution isn’t farfetched.

Every individual needs to go through own process. Hence, how we all would want to stay in happy, calm bubble mood for just a little while longer. Yes for just a couple of more days. Hmm, life doesn’t work that way.

In life we need the ups and the downs, we need the lows to appreciate the highs and we need things to move forward to ensure we don’t get stuck in one place. Life truly is a process: a series of events, some of which bring us happiness, some that bring us sadness and some that leave us in that grey place in between. But as someone said to me some time ago, “It all just goes by and we move onto the next feeling and the next opportunity to learn about ourselves and find our shine”. The challenge for us is whether we embrace the process or resist it. Can we get excited about the opportunities that it brings? Or do we live in fear about what’s just around the corner?

images

When you understand the process of your life, then, each step of the process aligns with a greater mission and the challenges become one more step to a better and healthier tomorrow. In the process, your experience could leave you awestruck but don’t panic, you’re getting closer to a perfect end. It may seem that season will never end when you’re in the process, but trust me, when the pain is too sharp, that’s when your joy start building. Remember, weeping may endure for a night, but JOY comes in the morning. It’s your time to dance.

What is your experience and how are you handling it?

Please share your thoughts.

Cheers!

4 WAYS TO GROW A SUCCESSFUL NETWORK MARKETING BUSINESS – LEARN, DO, TEACH, AND REPEAT!


Learn-do-teach

Many people have asked me severally, what it takes to build/grow a vibrant business in Multi-level Marketing Industry. That issue I want to discuss in a more detailed manner here. What I’m about to share is what I have actually learned from gurus whom I follow on social media, admire and research about like the legendary Holton Buggs.

As a team leader, how do you inspire your team to success? We all know that the secret to any organization is TEAM WORK. Now to lead a very successful team that will be envied in any network marketing business, you must practice four (4) secrets. Many people will tell you all sorts of things about growing your business, I stand to be quoted, when you do what you’re about to learn, you are on your way to MLM Bliss! Your team will grow exponentially having buttressed roots e.t.c

Now what are the 4 secrets that have eluded so many network marketers for so long.

1. Learn: Many people don’t pay attention to this fact; they feel this industry is a one way traffic (Make Money Fast). No. In fact, to be successful in this industry and other industries, you must study the industry, study the trends and learn from the masters. Study also what makes the company or business you’re promoting unique; how can you grow to new heights in your business? Learners are Leaders as they say, but just learning without GAINING STRATEGIES is mere reading.

Places to Learn:

a. Seminars: attend seminars, conferences (live or online), leadership meetings et.al

b. On-line Webinar: learn from the leaders in your industry, subscribe to their Youtube.com channels and get updated news about them. Learn from their live experiences, what they suffered before they got to where they are and what they did to get there.

c. Articles: Research your favorite companies, read-up articles for or against, FAQ sections of their websites and make notes for yourself and team.

d. Others: there are very important lessons you can learn from experts in other industries that can be applied to your business and stand you out as a leader.

2. Do: All great leaders have something in common, that is, ACTIONS! If you are to stand out in this industry, you must DO/ACT on what you have learned. A dream is only a dream in your head or on paper if it’s not put to work. You can become noticed when you start doing what you have learned. In DOING, you get RESULTS and results draw the attention of others nearby. You may have heard the saying, ‘think-outside-the-box’; what does it mean to you? For me it simply means, ‘do something different’. But many have interpreted it to literally mean ‘think’ as in ‘muse’ without what brings the real content of that saying out, ‘Act’. So, don’t just ‘talk-the-talk’, ‘Work-the-Talk’!

3. Teach: What will stand you out in network marketing industry is not your ability to prospect people. You may prospect a thousand people and still not get lasting success. What drives your result is a vibrant organization. If you have learned how to generate a thousand leads and you have practiced it, but have not thought your team how to do same, you are still running a one man organization. We hear people say at different meetings replicate/duplicate. It doesn’t me what you think, it means, ‘produce or re-create yourself in your referrals’. You can only be successful as your team and your team can only be as successful as you.

teach

So to be successful, teach your team:

– generate leads;

– make presentations;

– prospect new clients;

– close the deals;

– fill-out new registration;

– navigate their back office;

– calculate their commissions on their own;

– Rank advance to new positions;

– replicate after their kind, et.al.

If your 80-90% of your team members is able to learn all these things, then you can be sure of maximum income weekly, monthly, and quarterly and annually in your business.

4. Repeat: the last secret I’ll teach here is to repeat 1 – 3. Let your team members do same things you have done. Let them learn, do and teach their direct downlines and their down lines.

Doing the above four will relieve you of whatsoever pressure you may have faced and free your time to focus on other aspects of your business. You will build a healthy and self-reliant organization that will generate thousands, even hundreds of thousands of $$$ when your team cascades to 5, 6, 7 generations behind you.

Team Work makes the DREAM WORK!

It’s not about You, It’s about the Team; So don’t give up, you can still win in this industry!

Succeed!!!

Take a look at this one in a lifetime opportunity

What is Success?


Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose. – Bill Gates

Many say a lot about failure but not much is said about success. That is to say that we overlook issues which are very imperative to our growth.

What really is Success?

I am often amazed at how many people define success as making (or having) a lot of money. It is very strange, because many of the people, who think this way is harried, stressed and, frankly, pretty miserable.

Success is defined based on our different personal perception and factors. But regardless, everyone wants to succeed in their lives. Until you define your version of success you don’t really have anything to strive for and you don’t know when to stop pursuing it. Defining success might seem simple, but it’s worth the extra mental effort to make sure you have a good working definition for yourself. I believe there are many areas in a person’s life: Self, family, friends, work, community and so on.

On a general note, Success is a process which begins with contemplation and ends with realization. In between there is work. For instance, a person’s goal may be to get admitted to a graduate school. His success will be determined when she/he achieves this goal. The person may have the ambition of receiving a scholarship award for a graduate programme. If he or she only gets admitted into the said programme, he has not been successful. However, he needs to get a result that represents 100% of his intended outcome but however; these outcomes are dependent on outside forces; though that is not the end of life as you have the opportunity to make things better.

Success should be all encompassing, i.e. should take into cognizance all facets of an individuals life. I believe you really can take control of your life and succeed. Unfortunately life does not come with a manual. Most people struggle through life and wonder why they never get anywhere. You do not have to be one of them. I will give you fair warning here, becoming successful is not easy, otherwise more people would be successful.

Hence, there are still opinions and thoughts that may not have been portrayed here. Please give you thoughts and leave your own definition of success and factors that contribute to it.

Cheers!

51 Ways Ordinary People Reached World-Class


This is a post by Robin Sharma and I beg to share with you all.

  1. Know what you want. Clarity is power. And vague goals promote vague results.
  2. Remember that every problem has a solution. Maybe you just can’t see it. Yet.
  3. In this Age of Dramatic Distraction, the performer who focuses the best wins the most.
  4. Before someone will help you, you need to help them.
  5. Become the most passionate person you know. It’ll be contagious.
  6. Know more about your craft/the work you do than anyone who has ever done the work you do…in the history of the world.
  7. Join The 5 am Club. Your most valuable hours are 5am-8am. They have the least interruptions.
  8. Devote yourself to learning something new about your field of mastery every day. Success belongs to the relentless learners. Because as you know more, you can achieve more.
  9. Remember that when you transform your fitness, you’ll transform your business.
  10. Don’t check your mobile when you’re meeting with another person. It’s rude. And rude people don’t reach world-class.
  11. Every time you do what scares you, you take back the power that you gave to the thing that scared you. And so you become more powerful.
  12. A problem is only a problem if you make the choice to see it as a problem.
  13. Stop being a victim. Your business and personal life was made by you. No one else is responsible. To make it better, make better choices. And new decisions.
  14. You can lead without a title. Don’t wait to get a position to stand for excellence, peak quality and overdelivery on every expectation.
  15. Find your own style. Be an original. Every superstar differentiated themselves from The Herd. And marched to their own drumbeat.
  16. Understand that when you play small with your success, you betray your potential. And the birthright you were born under.
  17. Eat less food and you’ll get more done.
  18. As you become more successful, stay really really hungry. Nothing fails like success. Because when you’re successful, it’s easy to stop outlearning+outOverDelivering+outthinking and outexecuting everyone around you. (Success is Beautiful. And dangerous).
  19. If you’re not overprepared, you’re underprepared.
  20. The only level of great manners to play at is “Exceedingly Polite”. In our world, this alone will make you a standout. And differentiate you in your marketplace.
  21. Remember that the moment you think you’re a Master, you lose your Mastery. And the minute you think you know everything, you know nothing.
  22. To double your results, double your level of execution.
  23. Invest in your personal and pro development. All superstars do.
  24. Get this year’s best Targets of Opportunity down onto a 1 Page Plan. Then review it every morning while the rest of the world sleeps.
  25. You don’t get lucky. You create lucky.
  26. When you push through a difficult project, you don’t get to the other side. You reach The Next Level.
  27. Smile. And remember to inform your face.
  28. Spend time in solitude every day. Your best ideas live there.
  29. Debrief on how you lived out your day every night in a journal. This will not only record your personal history, it will make you uber-clear on what you’re doing right and what needs to be improved.
  30. If your not being criticized a lot, you’re not doing very much. Ridicule is the price of ambition.
  31. Develop a monomaniacal focus on just a few things. The secret to productivity is simplicity.
  32. To get the results very few people have, be strong enough to do what very few people are willing to do.
  33. Rest. Recover. It’ll make you stronger.
  34. Buy a smaller TV and build a larger library.
  35. Remember that the bigger the goal, the stronger a person you must become to achieve that goal. So goal-achieving is a superb practice for character-building
  36. Food fuels your body. Learning feeds your mind.
  37. Don’t ask for respect. Earn it
  38. Finish what you start. And always end strong.
  39. Breathe.
  40. In business, don’t play to survive. Play to win.
  41. Protect your good name. It’s your best asset.
  42. Remember that words have power. Use the language of leadership versus the vocabulary of a victim.
  43. Give more than you take. The marketplace rewards generosity.
  44. Know that if it’s not messy, you’re not making progress.
  45. Be a hero to a kid.
  46. In business, aim for iconic. Go for legendary. Make history by how awesome you are at what you do.
  47. Please don’t confuse activity with productivity. Many many people are simply busy being busy.
  48. Your doubts are liars. Your fears are traitors. Stop buying the goods they are attempting to sell you.
  49. The best anti-aging remedy in the world is working really hard.
  50. World-Class performers have no plan B. Failure just isn’t an option.
  51. You have the power to change the world—one brave act and one person at a time.

Thank you for reading and peak your Life.

To your Success!
