Next use the compass profiles or compass method to assess your daily interactions. After you have gained a more realistic picture of how well you can manage your daily interactions , this usually takes about a week or two, set realistic goals for your self -mastery master class. Do not try to accomplish too many things in a day or you will end up getting yourself overwhelmed and disappointed with little or no time for other parts or aspects of your life.
Do not get into the habit of having too many projects up in the air at once. Finish one before you start another. Begin with end in mind also means that you have a plan for completing your projects when you start them. Don’t start your projects with only the hope that you will complete them. Stay focused from the beginning to the end. Write down the day you expect to cut down your stress index after you start. An open –ended self-mastery program, discourages completion while promoting lack of focus and delays
If you truly want to consistently do your best everyday through self -mastery, you have to refuse to quit after you begin. Too many people begin, then quit before they get the results they desire. You have to be able to strategically put aside your daily disappointments and early failures in your attempts at self-improvement.
Do not let your daily struggles stop you from focusing on your specific tasks for the day. Be prepared to try your best after the disappointment of the moment or of the hour or of the day. Do you bounce back from adversity everyday? Do you refuse to quit? How do you handle criticisms? What actions, did you actually take?
Criticisms will pass if you do not keep replaying them in your mind. Frustrations will boil over. Focus on your destinations instead of the bumps or delays along your self -mastery journey. Life is full of ups and downs. Refuse to let a rough morning spoil the rest of your day. Don’t burst out in anger simply because no one seems to appreciate all the effort you have put into becoming a better version of yourself. When things look bleak, you have to remember that you could be on the verge of a breakthrough. Never forget that the darkest part of the night is just before dawn. This also means that you also have to remember that any disagreement or argument is about to end after the darkest part of it or the most disruptive part of it.
Do you have a daily plan for dealing with stress? if not begin by doing your 72-hour stress audit. If you have done it before, do it again. Do you eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly, and go to bed on time? Do you build the physical, emotional, spiritual and mental strength to keep going when the going gets tough? Do you bounce back and refuse to quit when the going gets tough? Do you stay focused?
If you want to stay focused and refuse to quit everyday, you have to learn to stop being too harsh on yourself and learn to love yourself more everyday. Remember not to allow yourself to be distracted by trying to complete too many projects all at once. Finish one project before you start another. Learn from your mistake. You have to persist to win.
One of the main reasons why people fail to bounce back everyday is that they are too harsh on themselves. Instead of seeing their short comings as part of the process of growth, they consider them as a confirmation that they can never be successful.
