purpose driven success

We live in a world where it is normal to settle for a lot less than we are capable of.  And when you are the weird one that decides to set your mind on a vision so big you are too scared to say it out loud, then you definitely need these 7 things.

1. Selective Hearing

There will be those who feel the need to tell you what they think, even though you did not ask for it.  Choose not to hear them.  there is a story of Vincent van Gogh being asked how he could expect to create great art when he only had one ear and he simply said – “I cannot hear you”.  That may be the stance to take when people choose to tell you why they believe that your dream is too big and too crazy.

2. A ready smile as you walk away

And if they are particularly persistent (usually family and friends), then you must have a ready smile as you graciously take yourself out of the room.  I belong to a family who definitely feel the need to give me opinions when I do not want them and I used to get very annoyed about it but now, I simply smile, say something inane like ‘That is interesting’ and I change the topic or walk away.

3. Intimate Connection to Source

Marrying my husband was one of those things that my family and some friends frowned heavily upon and at the time, I was 21, feeling overwhelmed with all the chaos that seemed to arise when I announced the fact that my husband of 16 years and I intended to be married.  the only thing that kept me sane in that time, was my connection to Source and my desire to follow the intuitive nudges in my hear. I did almost break it off with him until I knew for sure what my higher power wanted because of every voice that was yelling in my head at the time, that was the only voice I cared about. And to this day, I depend on this voice before taking any action.  This is my guiding light and for any spiritual person determined to win, you must cultivate a spiritual practice that enables you know when you are being guided divinely to the right path for you.

4. A Tough Mind

Many may have opinions but the one that will have the most impact is yours.  If you have a big vision, then you can be sure that you will have a certain amount of self doubt and fear inside of you.  You must train your mind to stay focused on the vision.  You must practice shifting negative thoughts and limiting beliefs out of your mind if you are to win. If you struggle to remain positive about your chances of success, you must daily train your mind for success.  Write out that vision daily and keep it at the top of mind by rehearsing how you will feel when you finally reach your goals.  Refuse to accommodate or indulge doubts for long.  Catch them as soon as you can and replace them with something more edifying.

5. Resilience & Tenacity

There will be many setbacks.  I hate to say it quite so bluntly but there will be.  You will need to keep getting back up again and again and again.  The only way you will do this is by having a huge reason why.  Whenever I work with any of my clients, I check to see what their ‘why’ is because without a solid reason to do the tense work of building out a huge vision, they will not stay the course.  Everyone starts with optimism, the only ones who remain have tenacity and…

6. Relentlessness

I love this word!  One version of the dictionary defines it as ‘showing or promising no abatement of severity, intensity, strength, or pace’  Another one said ‘Steady and persistent; unremitting:’.  It sounds harsh, unforgiving and in some ways, it is. Sometimes, being a spiritual person can seem weak.  It can seem as though you have to turn the other cheek and submit all the time.  And for some, that is exactly what it means to them.  But for those committed to designing a life they adore, you must be relentless.  You must keep pushing forward and yes, you must hustle ( a hated word in some spiritual circles). The great thing for you is that you have divine guidance to support you, if you will listen, trust and act.  BUT YOU MUST ACT!

7. Tunnel Vision

Needless to say, you need to focus.  There will be many distractions, many reasons to quit, many had days and many great days and you will finally realise that you are a lot more powerful than you ever imagined.

Scientific Studies Show How Nutrition Influences Our Creativity

It is widely known that eating a healthy diet benefits our physical health. But less is acknowledged about the psychological benefits. We have all tried exotic ingredients or foods that make us feel happy. But, how is our mood actually affected by what we eat? And, how can it end up influencing our creative thinking?

Pay attention to your body and your mind right now. Are you working at your maximum potential? Now recall what you had for lunch or breakfast and how it may be affecting your productivity. Now put this into perspective. Because this is something that is happening over an extended period of time and not instantly.

The role of glucose as our brain's fuel

The award-winning psychologist, Ron Friedman, explains in one of his articles for Harvard Business Review how "food has a direct impact on our cognitive performance, which is why a poor decision at lunch can derail an entire afternoon."

And this happens because "about everything we eat is converted by our body into glucose, which provides the energy our brains need to stay alert. When we’re running low on glucose, we have a tough time staying focused and our attention drifts. This explains why it’s hard to concentrate on an empty stomach".

The problem is that our body does not handle all foods at the same rate. Renée Leonard-Stainton, qualified Naturopath, Nutritionist, and Western Medical Herbalist, explains how our body processes glucose and how to eat for mental energy. "Eating foods with a low glycemic index (meaning that they release glucose more gradually into the bloodstream) may help you avoid the lag in energy that typically occurs after eating quickly-absorbed sugars or refined starches."

Turning fruits and vegetables into well-being

Research conducted by the University of Otago in New Zealand recruited 400 people aged between 17 and 25 years old, to try to define the association between fruit, veg and well-being. For 13 days, participants reported their consumption levels of fruit, vegetables, sweets, and chips, as well as their well-being, curiosity, and creativity. Researchers discovered a correlation between higher fruit and vegetable intake and higher average well-being, curiosity, and creativity levels among the participants. But what is more interesting, is that their fruit and vegetable consumption on one day, didn’t improve their well-being the following day. This therefore emphasizes the need to eat a healthy and well-balanced diet consistently.

Foods that boost creativity

The studies mentioned before, prove that foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals promote well-being, curiosity, and creativity. But what specific foods should we consume to improve our productivity and consequently our creative thinking?

Vitamin C is an essential factor in the production of dopamine, the neurotransmitter that underlies motivation and promotes engagement. Foods with vitamin C are not only oranges but also strawberries, pineapple, mango, kiwis, papayas, brussel sprouts, bell peppers, and broccoli.

B vitamins influence feelings of vitality and engagement. You will find a source of vitamin B in tuna, Swiss and cottage cheese, shrimp, sardines, mussels, oysters, clams, salmon, crab, trout, herring, beef, chicken, turkey, whole-grain oats, and milk.

Antioxidants such as vitamins E help reduce bodily inflammation, improve memory, enhance mood, and may help prevent depression. Ingredients with vitamins E include almonds, spinach, sweet potato, avocado, wheat germ, sunflower seeds, butternut squash and olive oil, among others.

Finally, spices are such an important part of our daily diet. Cinnamon, for instance, makes your neurons stronger for a longer period of time. Research from the University of California at Santa Barbara shows that a sprinkle of cinnamon in your meal can help blood flow and stabilize proteins in the brain, improving blood glucose.

In conclusion, our creative thinking is affected by a number of external elements, but the food we eat is such an important part of it. Choosing a diet with ingredients that are gradually processed by our body are crucial to staying productive. At the same time, our diet will also affect mental energy and positivity, and the combination of these factors will determine our levels of creativity.

Protecting Yourself From Fake Social Media Accounts

Fake news. You’ve probably been hearing a lot about it lately. What is fake news and why is it so important that you know how to spot it? Fake news is not someone saying something you don’t agree with. It’s not one political party pointing out facts that happen to be inconvenient to the opposition. […]

The post Protecting Yourself From Fake Social Media Accounts appeared first on Dumb Little Man.

I’d Like to Hear Your Stories About Failure

In many of the talks I’ve done, I’ve noticed that one topic comes up over and over: failure.

What’s your biggest failure?

Are you afraid to fail?

How are people able to recover from failure?

Even though I have a daily podcast that tells success stories, I believe we can also learn a lot from failure. And here's the thing: I don’t know if the learning objective is always to “bounce back.” Some failures may be, well, permanent.

In any case, I’d like to hear from you. Maybe your failure story will help someone else avoid a similar mishap, or maybe the act of naming it will help you move on.
