Work-Life Balance

I LOVE TO DO RESEARCH about what can improve our lives and what can help us to become better people. The best part of doing research is when I understand how to apply the new knowledge in my own life so that I can benefit from it as soon as possible.wo-liThere is one subject that I find very interesting at the moment and that is Work-Life Balance.

Research shows us that more than 40% of the people who work are neglecting other aspects of their life because of work. I see this as a very important warning. When we give up the things that are good for us it will always effect us emotionally, mentally and/or physically. And that means that we will not be able to work at our best! It makes us unhappy working people when we don’t develop and express ourselves in every area. A good personal life is important for everyone of us because we need to work on our personal development,  spend time with our friends or family members, take walks in the park, visit a gym, go on holidays, enjoy a hobby and so on.

 

There are different things you can do to help yourself:
  1. doing your best to work smart instead of long. It is smart to decide how much time you want to (or will) spend on your tasks.
  2. saying something about it when you see or feel that the work demands are becoming to much for you. When you say something about it you are giving your teamleader or manager the chance to do something about it.
  3. you can also take a look here to see how I can help and support you if you decide to work on this in your own way and in your own time

 

There are also different ways an organization can help their staff.
  1. sharing information with employees about work-life balance
  2. training managers more about this subject so that they can protect their staff from experiencing mental and physical problems.
  3. allowing  staff to attend supportive meetings and/or activities during working hours as they would for other medical appointments. This way, everyone will benefit from this in the long term.

 

Take FULL RESPONSIBILITY

YOUR LIFE will not and can not change if you don’t believe that you are responsible for what you do, for what you think and for what you choose. There are a lot of people who are waiting for things to change without doing anything to make a change. Some even believe that God will help them to do it…while God has already done His part and is ‘waiting’ for them to take their step in faith. think
There are a few habits that can keep someone in a environment they don’t really want to stay in. These habits can even keep them from achieving their goals and dreams. If you know what you want and also believe that you can achieve it, you will have to overcome these habits. Let’s take a look at these habits for a minute…

 

1. BLAMING OTHERS (habit no. 1)

People who blame others are people who enjoy playing the game called “Pointing Your Finger”. Their goal is to point at as much people as possible. By doing this they keep themselves out of the spot lights and therefore outside the position called “responsible”.
You can blame others for your problems as much as you want but it will not help you in any way. What you are proving is that you are not confident enough to help yourself and not confident enough to trust God. blaming
People who enjoy blaming others for their problems or circumstances are people who blame the economy, the government, the stock market, their business-model, their employer, their employees, their managers, the post, their husband, their partner, their friends, this world, God and even their parents. They always blame someone or something else but never themselves.

 

2. JUSTIFICATION (habit no. 2)

People who justify their circumstances are people who say that something “isn’t that bad at all”. They also say that something is good the way it is because, according to them, “there are worst things” than that’. Imagine that they will even say things like: “It doesn’t matter that I don’t have enough money every month, as long as I am healthy and happy”. attitude

Justifying is not a wise thing to do when it comes to moving forward in life or achieving your God-given dreams. If all the areas of your life were not that important then God wouldn’t have promised a good life ~ in abundance ~ and He wouldn’t have given His promise for health, wealth, happiness, success and much much more.

 

 

 

3. COMPLAINING (habit no. 3)

Research has shown that what you focus on will expand. So, the worst thing you can do is to constantly complain about something you are not happy with. When you look at the people who complain a lot you will see that they are not really happy and also not very successful.

The reason for that also has to do with the fact that they are using their mouth to complain too much instead of using it to call forth good and positive things in their lives.
The best thing you can do is to refuse to complain about anything!

 

Conclusion
As you can see it all starts with you and it all ends with you. The person who is fully responsible for everything in your life is the person who is reading this article right now. That person is YOU!

Do you have a Success Diary?

A Success Diary is a ‘must have’ when you are on your journey to success. It is one of the tools that keeps you focused on all the good things that happen in your life on a daily basis. It helps you to remember what you are good at, what you are doing to move forward, how blessed you really are and so much more. diaThe most beautiful effect a Success Diary will have on you is that it builds up your self-confidence and keeps it at a high level. With a Success Diary you don’t need others to tell you how great and wonderful you are OR how good you are doing it in your own life. Your diary will speak for itself!

Keeping a Success Diary is not what most people do. You can do your own research and ask your friends and family members if they have a Success Diary in which they write their daily successes. You will discover that they don’t have one and that they might not even know what you are talking about!

However, a Success Diary is something that most of the successful people have. They keep track of their daily successes. It helps them to keep their focus on the right things and it helps them to stay in a positive vibe. They understand how the mind works and that it’s our own responsibility to feed our mind with what is good, positive and uplifting.

 

HOW TO USE YOUR SUCCESS DIARY

  • The first thing you need is a notebook.
  • Put you notebook next to your bed or on a table in your bedroom so that
    you can see it when you get up in the morning and when you go to bed in the evening.
  • Don’t use your computer or laptop. Writing with a pen will give you a more personal experience and that is the beauty of this whole exercise.

 

WHAT TO WRITE IN YOUR SUCCESS DIARY

A good way to use your Success Diary is to write in it in the morning and in the evening.
Five things you should definitely write in your Success Diary are:

  1. Every good thing you managed to do
  2. All compliments you have received
  3. When you have shown discipline
  4. When you have finished a task
  5. When you have made someone happy

Doing this will change the way you experience your daily life. It will inspire you to do more good and positive things. And last but not least, it will push you to your goals much faster. And isn’t that what you really want?

A lot of successful women keep a Success Diary, even Oprah Winfrey!
