Mastering your inner strength
Everyone on this earth has a purpose. I really believe that. For some it’s much easier to discover than others and so might come to light quicker than others. We can all probably think of one person (at least) who is really good at something or has a strength that is recognised by you and many others around that person. They make it look easy. To us, they are successful in this field of music composing for example, or playing the violin, or working the room at a social function or keeping the peace when tensions are raised. Everyone has a purpose and everyone has a skill in something.
Finding your passion is step one. For those of us who haven’t had the opportunities to have our natural strengths bought to light. Our journey’s are a little different. We must now go about figuring out what our passion or where our skills lie in order to find our strengths. I know if you’re reading this you probably hear it all the time. But the saying is true, “if you find something you love to do, you’d never have to work a day in your life.” Now imagine how much easier that would be if you add the fact that you actually enjoy it! Amazing!
Things I try to practice to master my inner strength
- Do not ask for permission – If you’re seeking approval from everyone before you make a decision about your life – you’ll be waiting a long time.
- Enhance your talents – If you don’t know what they are yet, make a plan to find out. The sooner you do, the sooner you can get on with working towards sharing them and finding opportunities within this space to work and make money!
- Fear of failing – Nobody wants to loose, nobody enjoys failing -true. But how many successful businesses and entrepreneurs overcame disappointment before finally reaching their potential? Almost all of them.
- Letting go – This has been the hardest thing for me and I struggle with this at least once on a weekly basis. But there are NO RULES! Life is what you make it. There’s no formula to it. The only things you CAN or CAN’T do are the things you tell yourself. Stop with the barriers and the “I cant’s” and just let go.

Are you a worrier or do you manage to handle your thoughts? Are you even aware of your thoughts? Especially the unpleasant ones? This weeks challenge: Let’s raise awareness of our unpleasant thoughts and challenge them with a reality check! Happy Monday everybody!
Here are my key points:
- Tackle the most scary, annoying, whatever tasks you don’t really like to do first! Without interruptions – until you are done with it! If you have 2 tasks you don’t like – start with the one you like even less first. Do it. Reduce the time between deciding, which one is the most horrible one and taking action. After you have accomplished this you will feel better and rewarded.
- Plan every day! In advance – the night before.
- Which 20% of tasks are responsible for 80% of outcome? These are the important ones. Focus on the key result areas to set priorities.
- Upgrade your key skills and leverage your special talents rather than improving your weaknesses.
- Do not multitask. Do one task at a time with all your focus and you will be done quicker and probably with better results.
- Set goals – everyday and focus on them. Know what you want to achieve and what is top priority for that day. If you can’t decide what to focus on think about which goal (if accomplished) has the greatest positive impact on your life?
- Set deadlines for your tasks. Actually this principle is also recommended by Tim Ferris in “the 4-hour work week” (I will do a summary on this separately). Short deadlines that force you to take immediate action and get the task done in an efficient way rather than precasting with perfection.
- Don’t tackle the task as a big one. Break it down so it becomes easier to do.
- Watch your thoughts and become your own, biggest motivator.
- Do not do everything. Priorities and procrastinate the rest. Do the tasks that have the most serious consequences and focus on these key result areas.
