Before beginning to work on punctuality, it is essential that you understand what is making you late. Watch yourself and your routine carefully to identify what really is making you late. DeLonzor author of Never Be Late Again says – many late people — including herself — are likely to have an aversion to leaving the house. To combat this she uses a mantra of sorts: “When I catch myself doing this, I’ll snap or clap and say ‘This can wait.”
This article is not here to make you feel bad about your lateness or to say lateness makes you the worst of all. It is just to help you to work it out, if this is one.
Firstly, If you want to begin with identifying, have a look at DeLonzor who identifies fourtypes of persistently late people
The Crisis Maker
I am refraining to crowd this article with too much information so you can go ahead find your type.
Secondly, your motivation is with you. Find. Find Find. because it helps when you have a reason to be on time, it can be anything. I can give you an example here – Reach to work early and head home early to spend time with yourself, your family, or your pet.
Thirdly, begin with declutter. The thing is we unnecessarily clutter our lives with all things, thoughts and what not. Take an example of your cupboard, how easy it gets when you keep things in place, you find them early.
And, lastly, take responsibility. Know what makes you late, it can even be spending too much time in front of the cupboard every morning just to finalise what you’d want to wear today. Take notice of where you are investing too much time where it is not even required. Decide it the night before or wake up early.
End note – You are too amazing to put a blame on yourself for being late. Cultivate an attitude of punctuality, even if it is 10 minutes in prior.
“Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honour your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.” – Bradley Whitford
Your faculties are unique to you, subjugating it won’t be helpful. Life is only enhanced when you work on enhancing your faculties. It can be anything that you set your mind on.
You see when you make up your mind, you set a goal that you wish to accomplish. Often when you set a goal, you tend to set it on an end note and not as a process. You must breakdown and put it into order.
The primary thing is most of the experiences comes from within. You can work on the experiences only when you begin to build it from within. Look at where you wish to work on. What kind of experiences you want to work on. Begin by managing the kind of experiences you want to experience.
Build a stable platform where you want your experiences to build in a way you want. Invest in it. Delve into nature, find your niche. Perhaps, little more time in physical activity. Teach yourself how you can enhance yourself, let positivism build from multiple directions – your thoughts, your hormones, your physiology.
Find yourself. Define what encourages you according to what you want to seek on the outside. Put your things together. There is no such thing as perfection. Don’t involve yourself in something that harms you in the journey of your progress. Stop negative self talk. Be aware of it and before you begin to go in that direction, get up shake your body, sip a glass of water and get back.
It is extremely important that you deeply engage and involve in your motivation. Irrespective, what ever it is, give it your life. Make an experience out of it for yourself. Your engagement and involvement makes you
To summarise – motivation for some people is goal driven and for others it is process driven. It is essential that you find what helps you better. Look within your faculties and enhance them. The experiences you derive from it is solely for you, and you must build a stable platform to build upon your experiences. Do not seek for perfection, delve into nature over self negative talk. Lastly, engage and involve deeply into whatever motivates you.
Subconscious – the word that immediately captures our attention.
Subconscious is a part of mind placed right under your conscious. It works silently, just as the back coding behind your computer screen. It closely works with accepting or rejecting information, and helping you form your perception. Every experience acts like a sponge into your subconscious. It absorbs the detail and information.
All the detail and information that was absorbed gets utilized in a way that helps us to work effectively in the present moment. Our subconscious also referred to as “auto pilot” has immense power to control and navigate our day to day lives, even our preferences perhaps. From the kind of food we eat, music we like, career preferences to the actions we take when faced by stressful events.
It plays a vital role in forming our perceptions. While you were a child you only accepted what was fed into our systems, but as you grew up, you started understanding life differently, and that is how some of the learning created conflicts. For instance – you accepted the when you were told as a child that you can not do this task on your own. As you grew up your immediate reaction to something would be, I can not do this work because I might be incompetent at it. Henceforth, let me give up.
See the thing is, our beliefs are shaped on the basis of your programming, it is similar to how an app functions, just how all the information that is there on the screen consists of a back coding behind it. Often influenced by the people you are surrounded with, environment, texts you read, or perhaps learning in any other format.
So, what can be done , can you never change or restructure. Well! definitely, you can. The subconscious is always working. Though we must understand that what was learnt might take some time to restructure. Although, once you get the information and practice consistently. You can rewire and benefit ourselves.
Here is how:
When you are visualizing the pictures through your mind, the subconscious mind can capture and respond to it. It is a great way to empower and reprogram your mind with uplifting and positive images.
Try practicing for at least 10-15 minutes on daily basis. Simply close your eyes and try to bring attention to the experiences you want to have in your life. It can be visualizing images of a fulfilling relationship, a beautiful home, a dream project or anything.
Most importantly, when you are visualizing, try to emit positive emotions, emit love and gratitude towards the experience. Allow peace to flow through you.
You see environment plays an important role in becoming. Try to keep keen notice that your environment is filled with people who are successful, who are filled with positive and growth mindset. Do not waste your time or energy on something that is not serving you with either one of these.
You many not necessarily seek out for people, it is of course one way. But the other ways of doing it can be listening to courses online, read about people who inspire you and begin.
I know it may sound fictional to you as you read this, but there have been overwhelming research on brainwaves and the results have been quite positive. The audio recordings are likely to have altering brainwave effects.
It relies on what you are doing and fall into specific frequencies.
The reprogramming occurs by creating a receptive medium for installing positive messages.
