Have you got the success habit?
What brings some people success, and others not?
I can't promise to have the answer to this, but I may have some clues.
My work as a business trainer and coach has given me the opportunity to work with hundreds and hundreds of people from different walks of life over the past 16 years, and I've been able to observe the habits of those who are achieving 'success' in their lives, and those who would say that others are feeling denied the success that they feel they deserve.
Here are my observations.
1. People who achieve success get up when they don't feel like it, and exercise when there are a multitude of excuses for not bothering. The same mentality that motivates people to do things that they could otherwise avoid, seems to drive behaviours that manoeuvre them towards their goals and success.
2. People who achieve success know what they want. They have their vision of success clear; they know what success looks like, feels like, sounds like, smells like! You don't hear them saying things like 'but I don't know what I want...'.
3. People who achieve success make it their job to achieve it. They don't wait for opportunities, they seek them out. They don't blame others for their 'bad luck', they take responsibility for making their own luck.
4. People who achieve success are often (but not always, I admit) very good communicators. They know the questions to ask and when to listen more than they speak. They know that good relationships will help them on their journey, and they form strong and loyal bonds.
5. People who achieve success step out of their comfort zone to try new things, meet new people and take on challenges. Their focus on 'success' seems to strengthen their resolve and gives them the guts to face things that others would do their best to avoid.
So - do you agree? Which of these traits do you have and are there any more that you would add to this list?
Have you ever been sent on a course by your employer and thought, “I don’t want to be here”.
This happens a lot in First Aid.
Think of the situation, you are sat at home watching TV with your partner. All of a sudden you hear a funny noise, you look at your partner and they are struggling for breath, sweating, changing colour, complaining of pain and struggling to talk to you. What do you do?
First Aiders know what to do!!!
Call 999 and ask for an Ambulance! Give them your location, your partner’s details, tell them what is happening. Don’t hang up the phone!! They will help you through it.
Carry out a primary survey, DRSABC
D = Danger
R = Response
S = Shout
A = Airway
B = Breathing
C = Circulation
This is also known as Basic Life Support, this can save a loved ones life!
Don’t think of first aid as something you have to do because of work. Think how you could save someone close to you.
Eight minutes is a long time doing something on your own when you are not sure what your doing. That’s roughly how long it will take an ambulance to get to you.
