what is courage?
In viewing the tasks of life, hesitation shows a lack of courage. The loss of courage, or discouragement, suggests that the person fears the consequences more than he does inaction. Courage refers to the willingness to take a chance, knowing sometimes it will fail and sometimes it will succeed. In meeting the danger, one acquires courage.
WHAT IS CONFIDENCE?
Confidence isn't "knowing for sure" you can do something. Confidence is a feeling made from the consequences of our choices. With the right attitude, even when we are wrong, our confidence will grow due to learning from our experiences.
what is self-doubt?
Overcoming obstacles and turning your challenges into satisfactory outcomes is gratifying, though we will always make mistakes along the way. Difficulties are challenges for you to overcome in a way that will be pleasing to your awareness. Choosing to act courageously, learning from successes and errors, gaining confidence, and repeating this process construct the blueprint of resilience.
what is resilience?
Resilience is a term that also relates to "psychological capital” as it is characterized by hope, perseverance, passion, grit, and optimism. Resilient people don’t avoid challenges. Instead, they optimistically learn from them and courageously choose to move forward. In this sense, confidence is “capital” that is “built up” continuously for “behavioral use” at a later time. It’s much like a “reservoir” of positive resilience that will likely accomplish some anticipated positive outcomes.
What is belonging?
The goal of belonging on the useful side of life means striving to be valued and respected by others. All useful behavior that strives to overcome errors is a form of belonging.
How do I help people create deeply ingrained positive habits?
The Quality Life Journal (QLJ) facilitates the habit creation process by structuring the specific behaviors that need to be repeatedly put into practice. The result is that those behaviors will become habits and lead to the achievement of the goal statement. With consistent reviews and continuous rehearsal, these habits will be sustained well into the future and become part of your deeply ingrained history. In addition, by growing your gains beyond the initially stated goal, you put yourself on a positive course of action with no return possible to the earlier patterns. You have, by design, irretrievably grown preferred and self-reinforcing habits.
What is the best way to make sure that training activities are actually transferred to the life situations?
Action steps are specific behaviors that, when implemented routinely, become habits and will therefore guarantee achievement of the stated behavioral pattern. Transfer-of-training refers to the reality that the newly learned behaviors are effectively transferred from the knowledge phase into the actual life phase, which is always a challenge for conventional training activities. The QLJ facilitates the transfer-of-training into real behavioral change, as it documents goals, action steps, measurements and and holds people accountable.
How do I encourage a steady flow of innovative ideas?
Assessing, developing and promoting innovation oriented personal behavior is critical for any successful approach. Such efforts can be designed to as a productive part of a broader life strategy intent on creating innovative dexterity in how it takes care of people. To create extraordinary results, people that comprise enterprises must learn how to energetically grow toward clearly aligned and focused intentional behavioral patterns while enthusiastically helping their people grow. The QLJ powered by LifePsych® Training, creates direction and monitors a steady stream of innovative ideas and accomplishments.
How do I sustain an innovative process?
The QLJ is a planning and recording tool where the achieved gains are documented, reviewed, retained, rehearsed and grown well into the future. Continuous growth is documented using the “Retain and Grow” section of the PGPx, which functions to retain gains as well as grow the gains beyond the initially stated milestones. Every aspect of the process, in practice, has a continuous, innovative flow of creative elements in the form of Intentional Targets, Observable Behavior Patterns and the accumulation of action step that have become deeply ingrained habits. Everything that is planned can be modified, reorganized and restructured. Innovations that have been achieved can be expanded to reflect the addition of action steps added, even after the initial innovations have been established.
How many Intentional Targets can I focus on?
Every thoughtful, growth oriented person could easily find a dozen or so areas for improvement. People who attempt to develop more than two Intentional Targets at any one time, often find they make very little progress; perhaps none at all. A trainer that uses assessment feedback to suggest an person needs to improve in six to eight areas at one time is setting that person up to experience a huge failure. A focus on one or two areas provides clarity and focus that leads to actual growth, accomplishment and innovation. Ultimately, everyone needs to be working on at least one new Intentional Target while also growing the previously attained patterns.
