Key Mindset Beliefs of Successful Bosses

After studying psychology, overcoming my own depression and creating a life I truly wanted (not the one that was given to me), I had to learn to be one thing: successful. How did I do this? I studied, research and investigated successful people around the world - business leaders to religious gurus; here are some of. the key beliefs that they held. All delivered to you in a nice neat package. Enjoy.... and more importantly; adopt them for yourself. I use this for my sleep clients, but if you are trying to attain a different goal; for example; weight loss; simply sub out 'sleep' and sub in 'weight loss'.

THE GUIDE

-       Being solutions focused is key. Ruminating on your inability to sleep properly does not lead you to sleeping properly. Being ‘solutions focused’ does – it means you concentrating your thought, mental activity and behaviour on exactly that: the solution; and further, what the solution will bring you – optimised emotional, physical, financial and social health.

-       Consistency between your written and spoken language is vital – alongside thinking about the solution and associated benefits in your own space; discuss it with significant others; in place of when you would discuss the problem.

-       Appreciating your capacity to change in the moment of ‘now’ is fundamental – the actions will be required to be executed on a daily basis, and the sooner you do them, the sooner you will enjoy the rewards of better sleep

-       Respecting there is no ‘better time’ to change – if you are currently struggling, the best thing you can do improve NOW. Any delay simply delays your progression

-       You know you need to change if your current sleep related behaviours are not permitting you to sleep optimally, alongside function at your best inside and out

-       Taking ownership over your behaviour, including their consequences, is essential. Negating responsibility for what you have or have not done is disempowering – and it removes your ability to create change. Rather, by admitting you have ownership over your actions; you have a greater capacity to enable positive change.

-       Adopting a ‘how’ mentality is crucial – for example; after identifying the key benefits to optimizing your sleep, you need to approach these results as 100% possible, simply a matter of learning ‘how’ to get there. The strategies in this program are the how – supported by science.

How to Break Old Habits - Your Mindset Guide

Included in my 21 Day Sleep Tip Series, this is super helpful in the process of change and helping you break old, unhelpful habits. Enjoy! 

-       Mentally detach from what you ‘do’ and ‘do not do’ and being open to new patterns – letting go of old habits allows you to have space for new ones – which evidently is what you need!

-       Although you feel you may have ‘always’ done something, unless innate, there was a ‘day one’ for it. Equally, there can a ‘day one’ for these behaviours – today even!

-       The key to maintaining these new habits is to stay focused of what sleep provides you - aka the benefits – remember the visualization of rejuvenating sleep? Keep that close. It will keep you motivated.

-       Be sure to mentally map out how these new activities logistically work. Where will you do them? What time? Are you alone? Psychologically preparing is critical – it allows you to have an understanding about what to do, if you’re doing it for the first time.

-       Disregard any objections or resistance – statements like ‘I’ve tried that before’ or ‘this doesn’t work for me’ only impede your success. Although this is true, you haven’t tried them NOW with MY program and MY support. Hence, it’s similar, but not the same. 

-       Be solutions focused – if difficulties arise, concentrate your energy on solving the problem, rather than ruminating on the problem itself. This takes practice, my friend!  
 

-       Results from the new habits, that is, improved sleep, comes through consistent action over time. The only way to change is for YOU to change. Further, the opposite, inaction, results in no change.

-       You have been able to adopt new patterns throughout your life – for example, learning a new job or skill at school. This provides you evidence of your ability to change.

-       The habits suggested are supported by academic research into sleep optimisation.
