Don't Suck The Oxygen Out Of My Space

By: Jef Welch
Insecurities can effect everyone around you.

Screen Shot 2014-02-06 at 1.51.20 PM    Purging your friends and business acquaintances that are draining you can be a hardcore decision........but IT MUST be done or you will just throw money away, lose your health due to stress and anxiety, and become bitter and unhappy. So here is a way to recognize the issues at hand. 
    One of the biggest obstacles to someone's success and happiness is being in a relationship with someone who is insecure. I'm not limiting the relationship to companionship. I'm referring to all types of relationships.....companionship, children, parents, other family members you are close to, friendships, and even business acquaintances and partnerships.

Are You Freaking Crazy?

By: Jef Welch
Are You Freaking Crazy??

6 cognitive negativesFirst of all you're not crazy. You're actually going to be amazed at how we all need to adjust. Now find a comfortable spot and just read......it might just change your life. (And share this with your friends...it might help them too.)

Cognitive Pattern Behavior

The influence of Cognitive Pattern Behavior is an influence we all face every day, and possibly thousands of times per day. It is the way our thoughts are developed by the influences of our sub-conscious programming. Ok.....let me word this much more simply for you!!!! You do the things you do, because you think the way you think, because you are influenced (programmed) by the influences you have allowed to repetitiously feed information into your subconscious mind at the moments you were not guarded or objective. It’s easy to understand. You are simply the subject of your programming. 

Do you like the way you’re programmed, or the way you think, your immediate responses or reactions? Or do you see yourself making decisions, reacting, having thoughts that aren’t directly relative, therefore seeing your life being negatively effected by what you do, say or think? Don’t feel alone or as if you are strange. Try to recognize these behaviors so you can make conscious paradigm shifts to change your patterns of behavior. After all.....these Cognitive Pattern Behaviors are something we all face thousands of times every day. 

There are basically 6 categories of which people allow negative programming to influence their thoughts. Let’s discuss them.

Defectiveness, Unlovable, Abandonment, Helplessness/Powerlessness, Entitlement, and Caretaking/Responsibility/Self-Sacrifice are discussed in this blog and will shock you. Why? Because you will be amazed when you read the rest of this blog at how much these 6 categories apply to you or some people you know.

Overcoming Distractions, Maintaining Your Focus (Part 2)

Overcoming Distractions, Maintaining Your Focus (Part 2)

overcoming distractions bannerHave distractions diluted your life? Do you even recognize who you are when you look in the mirror? Have you abolished your ambitions and aspirations with the “backspace” button of distraction? Distractions can embezzle years from your life! You are the guardian of your life, your time. Are you an armed guard? This blog will enable you to recognize the perpetrator.

How often are you distracted? Are you frustrated about your productivity? Irritated with people of whom you have invested time into? Distressed by the lack of return you’re receiving from your activities because everything you are doing is diluted by distractions? Well.....if you don’t do something about it....then it will only get worse until you eventually find yourself in the “poor house.” 

 Distraction is the divided attention of an individual or group from the chosen object of attention onto the source of distraction. Distraction is caused by: the lack of ability to pay attention; lack of interest in the object of attention; or the great intensity, novelty or attractiveness of something other than the object of attention. Distractions come from both external sources, and internal sources. (Wikipedia)

When you take the proactive approach to delete or manage your distractions, you will replace poverty with prosperity, insecurity with security, stress with peace, and disappointment with appreciation. People protect their children, their jobs, their property...yet most are extremely negligent in protecting their time.

Overcoming Distractions, Maintaining Your Focus (Part 1)

By: Jef Welch
Overcoming Distractions, Maintaining Your Focus (Part 1)

overcoming distractions 500Overwhelmingly the excuse we all hear when prospecting in our business is someone telling us they just don’t have time. My reply to them is always, “Everyone on earth uses up 24 hours of every day, and you are no different. I think if you evaluated your daily activities you would be surprised at how much of your day is spent unproductively and non-beneficial.” The sad fact is.....we all waste a lot of valuable time doing things that are like a vacuum sucking the life out of our ability to create prosperity.

I can recall buying my first Franklin DayPlanner years ago with the purpose of disciplining my schedule to get the most out of every day. It was a system that changed the world of distractions. Replaced by the technology of mobile devices, we all gravitated to the Blackberry which capitalized on executives needing to integrate their planning to even a higher level. It worked great for a while until mobile devices themselves became one of the most detrimental distractions now that smart phones are attaching us to the world of games, texting, social networks, and web-search. Although all these are great technologies, it adds components that are either being used to create a return or are absorbing our productivity. However, studies show they are more an expense instead of an asset of our use of time. 

I find one of the fastest ways to get people to change is to be straight forward with our own habitual behaviors by setting an example. If we, in leadership, aren’t maintaining our focus, we can’t expect those we are trying to manage to be focused either. It is simply a discipline, something within our control, and should be addressed just as strictly as someone creating a discipline around their eating habits. Just as eating physical activity habits can rob you of your health, the habitual distractive behaviors a person permits will rob them of their productive time. A person can change their behavioral patterns therefore changing their future, or they can continue down a path of destruction.

Even the strongest leaders battle with distractions, making this the most difficult thing to control, requiring an ongoing effort to fine-tune the disciplined behaviors necessary in creating a defense against the things which embezzle your energy and time. Procrastination is stimulated by our lack of discipline to manage our distractions. 

Jim Rohn said it best when he shared, "We must be careful not to let our current appetites steal away any chance we might have for a future feast."  The recognition of the influences of activities which need to be accomplished in intentional behavioral patterns exposes why you should or should not permit the immediate influences to pull you from your defined schedule. A good example of this is the conflict of whether a text coming to you on your mobile device has or has no control over you. A simple distraction like a friend texting you, capturing your attention, feeling the urge to respond, can rob literally hours from your productivity time each day.
