You are Royalty!

And for the the thousands that have come through my office and have taken a seat in the “Throne”, we all have pictures to prove it.

So what have you done lately…to treat yourself like Royalty?

Take a long nap? Take a trip? Have a Royal meal?

We need to reward ourselves since we are Royalty, and we have all made it through the recent rugged past.

For rewards are what makes our hard work and good thoughts worth it all.

What’s your “ripple effect”?

And we’re no talking the ripple effect on water…but it contains the same concept.

The “ripple effect” is a term used in Sociology, and can be observed how social interactions can affect situations not directly related to the initial interaction.

The “ripple effect” is basically the spread of behavior within a group.

Whether the behavior is positive, negative, loud or quite…the behavior spreads throughout the rest of the group.

So in understanding this concept, we can also understand that maintaining a Great Culture must not rely on the group as a whole, but the individuals and their positive and caring behavior which causes the “ripple effect” to result in the Great Culture.

What Matters

We have talked about and gave examples of how to get and keep “Balance” in your life.

However, for many of us, the sticking point on creating “Balance” (or time for ourselves) is our belief that we will hurt others feelings as people count on us.

Yes, people count on us, and it is for that fact that we must create “Balance” so that we are there for people to count on us.

So it’s important to create “Balance” or “Your time”–just let people know that you are creating balance in your life and that THEY are important in your life, and that you are not ignoring them, just the opposite, you are becoming better….

The ones that matter will understand and the ones that don’t won’t. So creating “Balance” also helps to identify those who matter.

– Dr. Vik, The Culture King

When we ask questions…

And then really listen, we can create some great relationships.

We all ask people, “How are you doing”?…And we usually get a short, meaningless reply.

But if we take the time to ask, “Where are you from”? Or, “Where do you live”? Or “Do you have any children, and if so, what are their names”?

And sit back and really listen, we will get loads of great information about the person and their life.

People like to talk about themselves, and asking them meaningful questions, is the best way for us to know who they really are, and for them to know that we really care.

When it’s time, it’s time.

Make sure you take baby steps… “Inch by inch , it’s a cinch and yard by yard is hard”. Changing habits can be difficult, only if you let it. Just introduce or replace an old habit with a new one a little bit at a time… this will start a routine that can develop into a pattern and ultimately a habit.

Some of us have habits that aren’t the best for us and we don’t even know why.

Let me tell you a story: When I was a kid, we always had canned ham for Easter, you know, the kind you dress up with diamond slice marks, cloves and pineapple. Well our ham always had the ends cut off, so I asked my Mom why?

She told me that is what her mother did, so I then asked my Grandma why she cut the ends off. She told me that she never had a pan big enough…

So, is there anything you’re doing to your mind or body that may not be the best and you have no idea why?

Releasing weight?

I have found in coaching, that there are basically only 2 ways to do it: EAT LESS or EXERCISE MORE.

In the EATING LESS category there are 3 things to investigate to see if you need to address any of the following:
1. Eating less
2. Eating better foods
3. Timing of eating

Eating less is self explanatory. And since it takes about 30 minutes for you body to realize that you are full, you can help the process by eating slower, eating smaller portions and understanding that you will feel full in time, but maybe not when you are eating. Trust it.

In eating better, many times it is just as simple as being more mindful of what we eat. So surrounding ourselves with better food choices that replace what we used to eat will help do the trick.

And the timing of eating is simply the time when one consumes most of the food. If this is your challenge, the time when you consume most of your food is probably right before bedtime.

If your diet is good and the vehicle to releasing your excess weight is more exercise, the biggest challenge I have found is that people try to increase their movement or exercise too drastically and end up quitting. What works is doing any exercise you like to do with no time limit and thus just increasing movement more than before, at an easy pace. Over time, exercise is fun to do and becomes a fun place to go to.

So if your looking to release a little weight, just check out your EATING or EXERCISING  habits or lack thereof to see what will work for you and HAVE FUN creating the new you!
