Hey everyone!

 

Alex E Kheyson here, and I want to welcome you to the Heart & Mind of a Leader podcast, wish you the best of luck and determination on your exciting and often challenging personal development and professional growth journey.

 

Can I ask you for a big favor? Could you please leave your honest feedback about the topic, content, level of interest and engagement after listening to this episode of the Heart & Mind of a Leader podcast. Also, please let me know if you found this episode especially helpful in your existing situation, based on where you are today in your life and career.  I appreciate your support in helping me to create and share topics and information with each episode that is actionable and relatable to those listening and following this show. 

 

Some of the key questions and points that I cover in this episode are:

  • New Year's Resolutions - what do they mean to you and those around you? Are you typically wait until the last minute, until Dec.31st to set your goals, objectives, habits that you would like to form or get rid of, or are you working towards accomplishing your goals throughout the year?
  • Why so many people wait until the end of the year to create and set their goals for the following year instead of setting, changing, updating, and working towards their goals and objectives during the year? Why procrastinate? Could this be the reason why so many of us give up on our goals shortly after the beginning of the new year, because, we do not have needed focus and determination to stick to what we want to accomplish?
  • Change - what does change means to you, and how do you interpret and see the concept of change? Are you viewing change as a positive or a negative part of our life?
  • Are you someone who is always open and welcome change, or you do everything you can to avoid change and pretend that change had never took place? Whether you like it or not but change is always present in our life, and the sooner we can recognize it, the easier it would be for us to actually face and deal with change.
  • If we look at change from a big picture perspective and try to understand what are the driving factors behind the particular change, in most cases we would realize that change is an opportunity for us to reset and re-focus while focusing on our future

Some of the key questions and points that I cover in this episode are:

 

  • Progress associated with pursuit of our goals and dreams in life - why is it important to understand how progress or lack thereof may have a direct effect on our desire to go after that what we truly want?
  • What is the main inhibitor of progress? Why many of us give up before we reach the finish line, before we accomplish that what we had started, something that we cared about before? What is different now? Is it less important to us now than it was few days, weeks, months, or even years ago?
  • Wil you stop pursuing your lifetime goal or dream if/when you do not see an immediate progress or result, or will you keep going, keep trying, keep working and making perhaps small but determined steps forward until you eventually reach and accomplish your one thing that you've been thinking and dreaming about?
  • Why so many of us stop half way from the finish line? What factors impact our desire and willingness to keep trying, keep fighting for what we want and hope to achieve? Do we change or do we simply lose hope and give up too soon?

Some of the key questions and points that I cover in this episode are:

 

  • Process and speed with which we create excuses and not following through on our commitments, promises and goals is a rocky road filled with excuses and false promises to ourselves and others - why are we doing that to ourselves every day, every year?
  • What are some of the key drivers behind our decisions to give up and stop focusing on what we were working towards and wanted to achieve?
  • Are we expecting results too soon, living in the state of immediate gratification, or we are we simply not fully committed to go after our goals?
  • What does it take to establish new habits or to overwrite an existing ones? New habits do not get established overnight, it takes time, sometimes a lot of time, patience, dedication and commitment. Do we really want to create new habits and improve our present and future or we are we just saying that we do because it sounds good to us and others?
  • New Years Resolution goals are simply and illusion that many of us create every year just to knowingly create false perception of goal-setting and commitment and to feel good about ourselves, at least for a short period of time. Why not set and stick to our commitments every day of the year? Why not stop making false promises and lie to ourselves when setting new goals?

  • What does 'planting the right seed' means when it comes to personal development, foundation establishment, goal setting, self-education, and investment in personal growth?

  • How question - "Does money grow on trees?" be positioned as negative point of view in our mind early in life and how it may impact our view of money, earning money, seeking more later in our professional life?

Some of the key questions and points that I cover in this episode are:

 

  • What does accountability means? Why is it important and why it's required in any goal-setting or habit-setting/creation process?
  • Hiding behind 'New Years Resolution' in order to procrastinate and avoid taking any action to create change, or to keep driving towards our wants and needs. Why do we choose to procrastinate and wait until next New Years to reset and start again, establish new goals, or update/'rewrite existing plans and goals? Why not start now?
  • Why are we so quick to give up so easily on a particular goal or habit creation, leading to loss of forward momentum?
  • How can an accountability system and process can help us to keep moving forward and stick to our promises and commitments when we feel like stopping and/or giving up the important task, project, life's dream?
  • How can one establish a solid accountability system and focus on what we expect to achieve in the near term or in the future?
  • What is your 'WHY?" What or who motivates you to get up each morning and do what you do every single day? Why are you choosing to invest time and energy into your own personal and professional development?

  • What it's like living the life without regret? Why many people choose to go through life in the constant state of regret?
  • Different ways to looks a life's challenges and roadblocks as very important life's lessons. It's all a matter of interpretation. So, how are you going to interpret difficulties that you may be facing now or in the future?
  • The importance of having the right mindset, what does that mean and how to live the life in the right, optimistic, and positively-focused mindset?
  • Expecting positive outcome vs. thinking what may not work as planned. How do you expect for things to change for a better if all we are doing is dwelling on our failures, misfortunes, and difficulties vs. looking for opportunities on what can be done, what you can do to improve less than desired situation that you may find yourself in?
  • Using doubts and lack of confidence of other people around you as a fuel to try harder, smarter, believing in yourself and your abilities, creating the life that you want to live
  • We can create barriers to our own success and our future, or using life's lessons learned and use them to our own advantage. There's no need to create problems, when life is giving us an opportunity to learn, develop ourselves, become stronger, and going after anything that we choose to pursue

Some of the key questions and points that I cover in this episode are:

 

  • How to address things that are bothering us, and things that we want to change?
  • Why so many are struggling with creating changes, trying, stepping out of comfortable feeling of security and comfort, and stepping into unknown, while proving everyone and ourselves all that we are capable of achieving?
  • Different forms of fear - are we ready and committed to change?
  • Why are we so afraid to try something new, that may bring us that happiness, satisfaction, and what we are seeking to achieve in life?
  • We don't know what we don't know - creating reasons for not trying to avoid appear unconfident, unexperienced, uneducated. Facing the fear of potential failure every day
  • Nobody knows about your internal fears and roadblock other than you - so, why fear what other people may think of you or your actions?
  • Instead of thinking of and focusing on what could go wrong, why not think about what could go right and change our present and future for a better?
  • Am I creating an 'empty noise' and look for different excuses for not trying, or do I actually take steps towards that what I say that I want and try to change my present, looking for opportunities around me? This is a question that we should all answer when considering change
  • Fear does not exist until it is created in our own mind and becomes the reality that we choose to follow

Some of the key questions and points that I cover in this episode are:

 

  • Why so many people choose to stop or quit before reaching the 'finish line', before completing that what we start?
  • Could lack of believe in ourselves or our colleagues be the reason why we choose to stop trying and quit? Why not try, follow through until we reach the end and then evaluate whether the end result was success or failure
  • How can sport serve as a great example where determination, persistence, and desire to win it tested every step of the way? Do Olympic athletes stop half-way through training, or stop after unsuccessful attempt or failure, or do they get up and keep trying?
  • How can we use sport competitive spirit example in business and in our careers to find success, reach and cross the finish line?
  • What can we do when nobody believes in you, or when your team have quit on you? Do we focus on our end-goal and keep pushing forward regardless of any obstacle or doubt on our path or just give up?

Some of the main questions and points that I cover in this episode are:

 

  • Can anyone become more assertive when the situation calls for it? What may be stopping us to express our opinions openly when necessary, is that fear of being misunderstood or too direct?
  • Why do we continue to hide our assertive personality inside of us, even when we know that we have something to say and are confident that we are absolutely right?
  • What do we fail to recognize when we are in the middle of presentation of ideas and opinions on the subject at hand, even though it is such an easy and hard thing to remember?
  • What do we tend to focus on more in the middle of the constructive argument when we are not assertive, what do we think and care the most about? Are we being consumed by others' thoughts and opinions that we forget about our own?
  • 'It's not what you say but how you say it' - recommend vs. tell approach in problem solving and solution finding. Collaboration is one of the critical parts of any productive negotiation
