A Culture of progress

Are you currently in a “Culture Of Progress?”

Take some time to consider the answer to this question and before I dive into the inspiration of this blogpost here’s a simple definition.

Culture: the arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectivity. [Google Dictionary]

THE INSPIRATION

I was listening to a coaching call with Dean Graziosi, co-creator Of Knowledge Business Blueprint, and he loosely mentioned about a culture of progress. As the training continued my mind continued to ponder the meaning. At the time I was driving and couldn’t take notes but my ears tuned out everything else from that point on.

I WAS DEALING WITH

At the moment I was dealing with a communication issue I was having with one of my contracts and those three words hit me, in a good way. Culture Of Progress.

Am I in a culture of progress?

Am I working with capable people who value systems?

Is this business relationship healthy and is there progress?

At the moment my answer was a big, “NO, NO and NO” then I pulled over to write down a few thoughts.

HOW To CREATE A CULTURE OF PROGRESS

  1. Figure out your “WHY” and write it down, make it plain and visible. BLOGPOST

  2. Distinguish all the things that dilute or distract you. Decide to stop. BLOGPOST

  3. Make a list of the “Needle Movers” in your life or the tiny steps towards your big goal.

  4. Lock-in your mind to devote 80% of your time to your NM list. BLOGPOST

  5. Get into a group of likeminded individuals. Join their community and create the culture of progress.

I’m completely inspired to find, create and maintain a fellowship that supports my goals. I know this transaction will take time but it will be worth it moving forward.

Maintaining YOU

Maintaining You.jpg

Self maintenance requires... 

  • Time
  • Investment
  • Flexibility
  • Awareness

I was chatting with a cousin, who's a project coordinator at Kamehameha Schools, about MANA! The Hawaiian rendition goes like this, "Remember where your MANA comes from!" and "You can feel the MANA!" Which is synonymous throughout Polynesia; Tahiti, Aotearoa, Samoa, Tonga and Fiji. So the proper title of this blogpost should be...

Maintaining MANA

So in essences the question is, "How do you maintain the MANA that resides within you?" My cousin, Kalani Hiapo, and I talked for hours, there is much to be discovered and uncovered. [WHY?] Because MANA is a deep seeded condition of balancing past and present. Honoring your heritage and yourself. This is how it's done...

  • Time is what we all have, how you use it defines YOU.
  • Investment into self-help tools & holistic living.
  • Flexibility is the key to sanity, what to keep and release.
  • Awareness allows you make adjustments and move on.

ENERGY

Your words are indicators. What type of words do you use to describe your life, Ohana [family], relationships, job, business, children, body and opportunities? After all, energy isn't seen but heard and felt. That's the same with your words. We can't see them trickling out of your mouth but we can hear and feel its impact. Energy comes from within, what you speak your mind reasons, and the result is a belief. Maintain your words.

DRIVE

This is extremely practical and hands-on. If you want to stay engaged and complete what you started with determination you will need these items: a planner, colorful pens or pencils and a few embellishments. It's called planning with intention. Before you can have DRIVE you must first develop DISCIPLINE and the easiest way is to bullet journal or plan.

HEALTH

With all the wealth and wisdom in the world it's nothing without wellness. I've known ah-mazing healers who died too soon because their own personal health wasn't maintained. The MANA they carried needed a foundation. Regular sleep, clean water + clean eating and fitness aren't fads they're facts. Holistic health is a whole living lifestyle.

HAPPINESS

Authenticity is the result of a person who lives their word. What they say is who they are. Feelings and the energy they put out into this world aligns with their plans that drive them towards success. They are the masters of their thoughts and happiness is what they create. The best way to maintain this level is to practice gratitude daily. Grateful = Happy.

 

If you're ready for change and want more, may I suggest my eBook, "WALK IN BEAUTY uncover its secrets & unlock your potential." I wrote about the 5 REALMS of BEAUTY and how it relates to you. This blogpost is a tiny summary of the 'aha moments' you'll receive in the eBook. 

The best part about my conversation with Kalani is connecting our knowledge from different sides of the Pacific Ocean. He's currently working on projects in Oahu and I've also included links for Shift Massage & Make Mahalo, because they deal specifically with two of the subjects I've mentioned. The goal of this blogpost was to light the way and give you tools.
