THE POWER OF HABITS

To understand the power of habits we have to understand the habit curve! Why do people fail when forming new habits? For example, people set the goal to lose weight and because of that, they want to run 10km twice a week! This goal requires a new behaviour but, at a certain point, you will get hungry and when you pass a fast food store you think: “A big mac won’t do any harm.” You eat a big mac. Do you have an instant gratification at that moment? Yes. What if it was a salad? Do you have an instant gratification? For a lot of people, the answer is no! Then, after a while, you are going out 2 or 3 times to eat the big mac. And in t ...

THE CRITICAL FACTOR FOR SUCCESS

Throughout my work life, whether as an entrepreneur or as a marketing and strategy director, I realised that what torments entrepreneurs more in everyday life is a group of situations, perceptions, thoughts, and emotions, such as:  “I have to play different roles in business (owner, manager, technician, marketing and sales director) at the same time and I feel overwhelmed.” “Business controls me instead of me controlling it.” “I can’t achieve the business goals or increase sales.” “I can’t achieve my life goals.” “I feel a lot of stress every day.” “Stress origins serious illnesses and early death.” ...
