A Formula For Improved Achievement
Your ability to perform in life is determined by a number of factors:
(1)The package you received when you were born (i.e. whether you are in a male or female body, whether you have all the right bits in all the right places etc. Not much you can do about that, other than accept it (unless, of course, you spend a fortune on plastic surgery)
(2)The information you have available to you. You don't necessarily need to have that information at your finger tips,just the ability to know where to find it and being able to access it.
(3)How motivated you are. Anthony Robbins argues, quite convincingly that the two basic motivators in life are avoidance of pain and the attraction of pleasure. I agree with him
So, we can create some sort of formula:
POTENTIAL = ORIGINAL PACKAGE + INFORMATION + MOTIVATION.
However, if you are honest with yourself your achievements does not equal the potential you have. That is because of the emotional factor.
What you know about something (information) is very important. What is even more important is how you feel about it.
To realise how your potential is affected by your feelings, you need to divide the potential you have by the blocking forces of our emotions in order to get a figure that is closer to the mark when it comes to achievement.
So the formula for achievement goes something like this:
ACHIEVEMENT = POTENTIAL divided by EMOTIONS.
Let's play with a few number to get a better idea of how this works. (You might need a piece of paper and a pen or pencil to make sense of this) I will try to keep it simple.
Now although its not possible to reduce the dimensions of the human system to numbers, stick with me here, because hopefully we will actually get somewhere with this.
Let's give each of the first dimensions a value of 6 and the blocking feelings a value of 3. So we have six plus six plus six equals a potential of 18 divided by 3 = an actual output of 6.
What happens if we increase the information and motivation dimensions? Now we have already said that we can't do anything about our original package, so that stays at 6. But what if we increase our information dimension and our motivation dimension by 50% so we have 6 plus 9 plus 9 equal a potential of 24 divided by three equals an achievement level of 8 So by increasing our knowledge by 50% and our getting really motivated we have managed to slightly improve our achievement from a level of 6 to 8. Not bad, but I certainly would not be satisified with such a small increase for so much extra work.
Now, here comes the real cruncher. Instead of increasing our information and motivation,what if we reduce the blocking effect of the emotional dimension?
Let's go back to our original numbers, 6 plus 6 plus 6 but decrease our blocking feelings by 50%, so it becomes 1.5 instead of 3. So a potential of 18 divided the emotional blockages of 1.5 gives an achievement score of?.12! Double the original achievement and 50% better than increasing the information and motivation factors.
The point of that little play with numbers is to show that based on our formula,(and this is so important I think it deserves, emphasising as much as possible...
TO BECOME MORE EFFECTIVE IN YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS YOU WILL ACHIEVE BETTER RESULTS BY REDUCING THOSE FEELINGS THAT BLOCK YOU FROM REACHING YOUR POTENTIAL THAN YOU WILL BY INCREASING EITHER THE INFORMATION OR THE MOTIVATION YOU HAVE.

We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment.~ Jim RohnNothing lasts-not even pain.
Do You Know Which Door To Open?
Do you remember that old television program that gave the contestant the opportunity to choose one of three doors and receive whatever was behind the door?I was reminded of this television program the other day when I was pondering a decision I was struggling to make. My usual process for decision-making is to make a list of pros and cons, revisiting and revising the list every couple of days.

Your Biggest Do it Yourself Project

Make Fear a Nine Day Wonder - Motivate Yourself with Fun!

Struggling With Juggling
'The trick to juggling is determining which balls are made of rubber and which ones are made of glass.' --AnonAre you juggling too many things at once and are you finding it a real struggle not to let any of the balls drop? Almost everyone is juggling more than one thing at one time or another, so how do you make sure that you can cope and not reach the point where you are tempted to just chuck everything into the air and let it all go?Juggling in itself is no bad thing.
A Quick Observation of the Low Class
We can all learn a valuable lesson about the types of behavior and attitudes to avoid like the plague, simply by observing the characteristics of people we all know are low class. Being low class is not a function of the lack of money or social status.
Getting Started is the Toughest Part of the Job
One of the most challenging things about starting on a new project, goal or task usually isn't the planning, the thinking about it and the mapping it out. It is the doing! Actually taking the first step is often the most difficult part of any new endeavor.
It Is Up To You
One of the first things successful people realize is the old adage, "if it is to be, it is up to me." That is, for you, the fact that your success and your course is up to you.
Action vs. Apathy - Feeling Powerless? Get Moving!

Are You A Visionary
Dreams may seem unimportant in your quest for success. And it's true that ordinary dreams are often a mix of what happened during your day --plus some "wild" random associations.
