Discovering Your True North: 5 Ways to Find Your Personal Principles

By Conqueror Team

A set of guiding principles provides a compass for our lives, shaping our choices, goals, and the pathways we opt to take. Our personal principles help to tether us to our authentic selves, acting as a compass that keeps us grounded, directs our decisions, and can be a lifeboat when the stormy seas of life threaten to overwhelm us. By truly understanding our personal principles and defining them, we are one step closer to living our lives with greater clarity, purpose, and fulfilment. In this blog post, we will explore five insightful ways you can find and embrace your personal principles and use them to navigate life’s journey.

Reflect on your past experiences and their lessons

Life is a journey filled with experiences that naturally align with our personal principles or challenge them. Reflect on your moments of pride, inherent decisions, and actions that have exemplified who you are at your core. Similarly, consider the instances where you’ve grappled with decisions and ultimately arrived at a choice that felt true to your character. Begin to recognize patterns in your life, as these recurring themes can help you shape a set of guiding principles that have been with you all along.

Engage in introspection

Self-reflection is a vital part of understanding our personal principles. Set aside regular time to inquire into your thoughts, feelings, and values, using journaling or mindfulness practices to encourage honest self-expression. Make note of your beliefs, passions, and purpose, as these are often directly tied to your fundamental principles. Write down your findings and distil them into a list of core values that resonate with you.

Look to your mentors or role models

We often admire others who exemplify the principles we hold dear. These mentors or role models can be friends, family members, colleagues, public figures, or leaders in various fields. Sift through their life choices, habits, and philosophies to identify common principles that resonate with you. Reflect on why you value these aspects in others and how they align with your beliefs, serving as crucial components to your personal set of principles.

Evaluate your choices and decision-making process

Becoming more aware of your decision-making process is an effective way to unearth your personal principles. First, consider how you approach decisions, whether it’s an intuitive, emotional, or rational process. Then, when faced with significant decisions, pause and identify the principles guiding your choice. By connecting your principles to your decision-making process, you reinforce your commitment to upholding them in your life.

Seek feedback from others

Sometimes, we need an external perspective to recognize our guiding principles. Engage in meaningful conversations with people who know you well—family, friends, or colleagues—regarding their perception of your principles. This insight can provide valuable feedback on how consistently you embody these principles and may even reveal aspects of your character that weren’t initially apparent to you. Analyse this feedback, and reflect on how it aligns with your self-assessment and understanding of your personal principles.

Why Being Grounded Leads to Long-Term Success

By conqueror Team

As humans, we often find ourselves caught up in the hustle and bustle of life. We’re constantly trying to achieve big goals and make big changes, but it’s important to remember that sometimes the small steps are the most significant. That’s why being grounded is essential for long-term success. Let’s explore why that is.

The Benefits of Being Grounded

Being grounded means having a strong foundation and staying focused on your priorities. It allows you to stay present in the moment, and keep your head clear so that you can focus on what matters most. This kind of focused energy will help you stay true to yourself and your goals.

Being grounded also helps reduce stress and anxiety—two things that can be incredibly detrimental when it comes to striving for success. When we become overwhelmed with emotions, it can cause us to act impulsively or make decisions before thinking them through properly. By taking time to ground yourself, you can gain clarity and perspective on any stressful situation which will help lead you towards making better decisions in the long run.

Finally, being grounded allows you to take a step back from everyday chaos, creating more space for creative thinking when tackling challenges or problems in your life or career. With a clearer mind comes a better ability to think outside the box and come up with innovative ideas or solutions which could lead to greater success in any aspect of life.

In summary, being grounded is an incredibly valuable tool when it comes to achieving long-term success. It allows us to stay focused on our priorities while taking time out from everyday chaos; reducing stress levels so that we can think more clearly; and giving us space for creative thinking which could lead us down unexpected paths we never thought possible! So take some time today (and every day) for self-reflection – chances are it will help you reach whatever goal you set out for yourself sooner than expected!

How to Plan for Your Self-Development in 2023

By Conqueror Team

The year 2023 is fast approaching, and it’s time to start planning for your self-development and growth. Whether you’re just starting out or have years of experience, planning your development for the next five years is essential for staying on track with your goals. Here are some strategies for planning for your self-development in 2023.

Set Goals

Setting goals is a great way to plan for your self-development in 2023. Start by identifying the areas that you want to improve and then set goals around those areas. Make sure that these goals are SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound). This will help ensure that your goals are realistic and achievable within a certain timeframe. Don’t forget to break down each goal into smaller milestones so that you can track progress and make sure you’re on track.

Find an Accountability Partner

Having an accountability partner is a great way to stay motivated and committed to achieving your goals. An accountability partner can help keep you accountable and provide support during tough times. Find someone who is also striving towards similar goals as yours and check in with each other regularly so that you can both stay on track with your plans.

Create a Support Network

Creating a network of supportive people around you will be essential for achieving success with your self-development plans in 2023. Create meaningful connections with people who have similar interests or share the same values as you do so that they can provide encouragement when needed. Additionally, having access to mentors or advisors who have already achieved success in their respective fields can be invaluable when it comes to offering advice and guidance along the way.

Planning for self-development in 2023 is an exciting yet daunting task. By setting SMART goals, finding an accountability partner, and building a strong support network around you, however, it will become much easier to reach success within the next five years! Keep these strategies in mind as you begin planning now so that by the time 2023 arrives, you’ll be well on your way towards reaching all of your development goals.

The Benefits of Embracing Self-Development in 2023

By Conqueror Team

With the new year comes a renewed focus on self-improvement and growth. As 2021 quickly fades into the past, now is a great time to look ahead to 2023 and start setting goals for yourself that will help you achieve success in the coming year. One of the best ways to reach your goals is through self-development. Self-development is about taking proactive steps to better yourself and maximize your potential. Keep reading to learn more about why making self-development a priority this year can help you set yourself up for success.

Gain Clarity

Self-development is all about gaining clarity about who you are, what you want out of life, and how to get there. It helps you identify areas where you need improvement and gives you the tools necessary to make those improvements. By taking time to reflect on your strengths and weaknesses, as well as the values that drive your decisions, you can gain a better understanding of yourself and use that understanding to chart a course towards success.

Increase Your Confidence

Another benefit of engaging in self-development is increased confidence. When we take time to focus on our skills, talents, and accomplishments, it boosts our sense of worthiness and helps us become more confident in ourselves and our abilities. By investing time in developing our skills, we can become more confident when tackling new challenges or opportunities for growth. Additionally, focusing on personal development can also help boost your career prospects because employers value candidates with strong communication skills who are open to learning new things.

Improve Your Relationships

Finally, self-development can also lead to improved relationships with others around us—both professionally and personally. When we invest time in improving ourselves it sends the message that we value ourselves, which can encourage others around us do the same thing or even push us further along our journey towards success. Additionally, working on ourselves can help us become better communicators which can foster deeper connections with friends, family members, and colleagues at work—the possibilities are endless!

Exercises to Do When You Feel Anxious

By Conqueror Team

When stress affects your brain and its many nerve connections, the rest of the body is affected as well. Alternatively, if your body feels better, so will your mind. Exercise and other forms of physical activity release endorphins, which are chemicals in the brain that work as natural painkillers. They also enhance sleep quality, which decreases stress.

Exercise is important for maintaining mental health and can help alleviate stress. According to research, it is particularly good in reducing tiredness, increasing alertness and attention, and improving general cognitive performance. This is especially useful if anxiety has sapped your energy or ability to focus.

Regular exercise, according to some research, works as well as medicine for some people in reducing feelings of anxiety and depression, and the results can be long-lasting. A strenuous exercise session can help relieve symptoms for hours, and a regular plan can help lessen them significantly over time.

Here are some excises to do if you are burdened with anxiety

Progressive muscle relaxation (PMR) for anxiety

Progressive muscle relaxation aims to show your brain what it feels like for your muscles to be relaxed and tension-free. Make yourself at ease in a seated position before beginning PMR. Flex each major muscle group for 10 seconds, then release for 10 seconds, beginning at the tips of your toes and working your way up. Continue to the next muscle group, flexing for 10 seconds and then releasing for 10 seconds.

Square breathing exercises for anxiety

Square breathing helps to balance the levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide in our bodies, which can go out of balance when we are anxious. Breathing in, holding the breath, exhaling, and holding it again for four counts each is square breathing.

Repeat the cycle for a few minutes. This anxiety reduction technique improves relaxation and better thinking, which aids in the resetting of emotional peaks.

The result, like other types of therapy, might vary: some individuals may respond well, others may feel it has no influence on their mood, and some may only have a minor short-term gain. Nonetheless, studies believe that the benefits of exercise on physical and mental health are undeniable and that people should be encouraged to be physically active.

How To Free Yourself From Mental Slavery

By Mark Weeks

By Mark weeks

Napoleon Bonaparte once wrote, ‘The human race is governed by its imagination.’ I’m pretty confident in stating, he believed the majority of people possessed poor imaginations. And, for many people today their imaginations are still not good government. The ‘imagination’ quickly becomes a dictator, and an unnecessary instrument for their own failings.

By not using your imagination positively and creatively you run the risk of being enslaved by it. Imagination has a tendency to run out of control, more often than not culminating in poor self-image and lack of confidence.

The good news is, it’s easy to take control of your imagination if you focus on it. It’s a scientific fact that the brain and nervous system cannot tell the difference between what is real and what is vividly imagined.

The first step in freeing yourself from mental slavery, and the most important, is to imagine the outcome you want and not what you don’t want. Why? Your brain tells you what to do in the future based on its knowledge in the past. And, the only way to see the future is through the power of your imagination.

You have to have the courage to break the cycle. None of us know everything, so why should the past be a reflection of your tomorrow?

Too often, people don’t exercise the control they have and allow their imaginations to destroy their potential – because they picture situations in the past where they have failed. They’re simply not using the power of visualisation to their advantage. Instead of bringing the past into the present you must practice bringing the future into the present.

That last sentence needs to be repeated – I think one of us needs to make it into a meme too😊

Instead of bringing the past into the present you must practice bringing the future into the present.

I like this short exercise I came across years ago …

Think of a car. Your mind will quite naturally see a car quickly, but it will probably be a hazy picture. If you were asked to describe the car properly you will refocus, because you’re giving clearer instructions. Most likely you will describe your own car. That’s the way most of us tend to respond in life; from our own experiences of the past.

Our minds get by on the minimum of effort, after all, they have a lot to contend with throughout the day!

But, if you desire a car, and have set your heart upon obtaining it, you must see the type of car you want down to the last detail.

At the next opportunity go into a show room, sit in the car of your dreams, take in the smell of the leather interior and feel the steering wheel. Own the picture in your mind, ‘This car is mine!’ If possible, go for a test drive. You might be surprised that you notice more of your cars on the road, once your subconscious mind is truly activated.

Try using this approach to the things you desire – but, be careful what you wish for:)

You may have come across the science known as NLP – Neuro-Linguistic Programming, first developed by scientists Richard Bandler and John Grinder. It’s a powerful methodology on visualisation, and I urge you to either re-visit or learn the techniques and utilise them over time.

What you feed your mind is critical to your success and happiness. And, the place to get the ball rolling and building momentum is through visualising a better tomorrow. The German writer Goethe said it best, ‘Before you can do something, you must become something.’ It’s as simple as that. You must be and act, before you become.

Allow yourself time every day to visualise, imagine and concentrate on what you want in life. Life is far from perfect, but trying to work some type of visualisation into your routine is a must. I tend to do better early in the mornings before I start my work day.

I also find time for a longer meditation on Sundays, which I incorporate into my weight training sessions. However life is working out for you at this moment in time do your future self a big favour and believe in a better day tomorrow. Five minutes a day now will reap a brighter future.

In my Amazon best seller – Soul of a Dream Catcher, set in worn torn Italy in 1948, Peter urges Emiliana to stimulate her imagination. Here’s a couple of lines you might relate to …

‘So, what would you do? Come on Emiliana, let your imagination go.’

‘Hmmm … you know I’m no good at this sort of thing. That’s why I leave the dreaming to you.’

‘Please try, everything ever achieved starts with a dream.’

‘I can’t, I just feel silly,’ she pleaded.

Peters voice strained a little, ‘If you can’t even imagine a different life how will you ever get one?’ Feeling tired from her continual lack of imagination he added, ‘If you keep on doing the same thing every day of your life, you’ll keep getting the same thing, over and over again.’

‘Okay, okay don’t go on, I get it,’ she said angrily, though refusing to admit she did not get ‘it’. ‘I don’t want to end up like my mother … there, I’ve said it. I don’t want to end up sad and lonely, being a slave to the whims of others. I … I want to prove to her life goes on outside of this bloody village.’

Peter finally got the reaction he was looking for and prodded further with sadistic delight. ‘Maybe your mother is happy. Have you ever asked her?’ He tormented.

Take away lesson: Only you can free you from mental slavery.

How to Keep Your Goals on Track

By Tonny Wandella

You were ecstatic to keep track of your objectives. Of course, that feels like a long time ago, and let’s be honest, the zeal has faded a little. You’re frustrated because your goals were either difficult to remember, didn’t feel relevant to your task, or just skipped your mind when you were working hard. You could assume that making objectives isn’t for you, but that isn’t the case. Here’s how to get back on track with your goals right now.

Here Are some ways that can help you stay focused on your goals:

Listen To Your Self-Conversation.

Since you are the one who is listening, how you speak to yourself is crucial. Many of us make the mistake of focusing on what we don’t want, thus increasing our chances of derailment. When you’re driving a car, where does the automobile deviate if you’re concentrating on the tree you don’t want to strike instead of the centre of the road? “I’m glad to feel good each day,” rather than the “I’m wary of being unwell,” remark. Rather than focusing on your low pay, say something like, “I am open to new opportunities to earn money.”

Visualize Your Dreams.

Do you have a strong desire to travel to Italy? Do you want to get stronger by trying a new workout? By the end of the year, have you found love? You can construct a virtual vision board of images that motivate and inspire you (in minutes!) using Pinterest. Allow yourself to be moved by the photographs, and be willing to include ones that pique your interest in unexpected ways.

Gain Clarity

The term “clarity” refers to the goals that have been set, implying that you understand precisely what you want to accomplish. When a goal is defined, it is easier to determine when it has been met. Setting a broad objective, such as “exercise more,” on the other hand, is less inspiring and more difficult to determine when the goal has been met. Has the aim been met if you “exercise more” just one day a week? How frequently would you like to work out? How long will you be there? What does “more” mean to you?

Are You Ready to Stay Committed?

Setting goals is an excellent approach to motivating yourself to try new things and make positive changes in your life. The importance of goal setting cannot be overstated, yet creating goals is the easy part; sticking to them is the difficult part.

It might be difficult to devote the time and effort necessary to achieve our objectives, and it is sometimes simpler to give up than to persevere. Staying on track with your goals, on the other hand, provides numerous advantages, including a higher probability of achievement and enhanced mental health.

How Little Improvements in Life Matter

By Wandella Tonny

Daily progress is the strategy of making small, consistent improvements every day in order to achieve significant long-term results. While many people think of kaizen as a one-week event, it has far more impact when the entire workforce participates in daily continuous improvement.

Every day, small changes and improvements have a significant impact on performance. Make a goal for yourself, and encourage others to do the same. It does not need to be large. A daily improvement of less than 0.5 percent gets you over 8% better at the end of the month, and over a year, you’ll be 250 percent better.

How can You make minor gains on a daily basis?

Begin slowly and gradually increase your weight. Avoid getting impatient and starting to push forward and take bigger leaps. Slowly, steadily, and consistently move forward. Simply strive to improve on the previous day’s performance. The punchline is as follows: If you improve one percent every day for a year, you’ll be 37 times better by the end.

There are several instances of big and minor acts that have the potential to generate change in our lives if we just practiced them more consistently. Workouts are never missed. Performing basic business tasks on a daily basis, not just when you have time. More frequently apologizing Every week, write Thank You notes.

Progress is frequently hidden behind mundane solutions and underutilized insights. You do not require any other information. You don’t require a better strategy. All you have to do is do more of what is currently working.

We frequently assess our performance by looking ahead. We set objectives. We set goals for ourselves and set benchmarks for our progress. In essence, we attempt to forecast the future to some extent. There is an alternative, which I believe is more useful: measure backwards rather than forwards. When you measure backward, you’re making decisions based on how it has already occurred rather than what you want to occur.

Start Today

All you have to do to anticipate where you’ll wind up in life is follow the curve of modest gains or losses and watch how your everyday decisions compound 10 to 20 years down the road. Do you spend less each month than you earn? Do you go to the gym at least once a week? Are you reading a book every day and learning anything new? These are the small battles that will designate your future self.

3 Endurance-Building Techniques Approved by Trainers

By Tonny Wandella

Few of us have the natural gift of endurance, for the most part it is attained only through discipline and hard work.

The following tips will help you develop the endurance of a champion. Let’s dive in …

Avoid food prophets who aren’t genuine.

However, not all foods are made equal, and some of those offering tantalizing benefits to your stamina may not be what they seem. There are claims that energy drinks can help you perform better, but evidence shows they have very little therapeutic value. Probiotic pills, which are typically advertised as being able to increase stamina, were likewise found to have no effect.

Experiment with new things.

Running and weightlifting are obvious stamina-building exercises, but you can also benefit from doing some less traditional exercises. Yoga, for example, may improve endurance levels significantly – yet another reason to venture out from your dull daily run.

Take care of your mental wellness.

Stamina isn’t simply about physical strength; your mental attitude plays a role as well. A stress management workshop that included the teaching of stamina-increasing strategies was found to have a good effect on both participants’ stamina and stress levels in one study, while preliminary research has tentatively linked pleasant emotions in elite athletes to peak performance. Meditation improved participants’ levels of exhaustion, as well as emotions of tranquility and attention, according to a study on yoga’s impact on stamina.

What would you improve if you had to pick only one aspect of fitness to work on? You’re probably thinking about working on your strength, endurance, or agility, which are all worthwhile objectives to pursue.

However, there is one underappreciated fitness factor: stamina, which integrates numerous fitness components into one. Consider working on your stamina if you want to get the most bang for your exercise budget.

How to Fight Anxiety Attacks

By Tonny Wandella

Panic attacks can indeed be overwhelming and unexpected. Knowing what to do when they occur can assist to mitigate their intensity or even prevent them.

Panic attacks are fairly common, according to one article, with roughly 13 percent of people experiencing one in their lifetime.

Although no one can foresee when a panic attack will strike, having a plan in place for what to do if one does strike can help a person feel more in control and make panic episodes easier to manage.

This article takes a look at how to stop a panic attack as well as some basic anxiety-reduction techniques. It will also cover how to assist someone who is experiencing a panic attack.

Recognize the signs of a panic attack.

You may remind yourself that you’re having a panic attack rather than a heart attack by realizing that it’s only temporary, that it’ll pass, and that you’re fine. Take away the fear of dying or impending doom, both of which are signs of panic attacks. This will free you up to concentrate on other ways to alleviate your discomfort. It’s not always feasible to avoid panic attack triggers, but knowing what they are will help you recognize that it’s a panic attack and not something else.

Light exercise is recommended.

Regular exercise, according to research, not only keeps the body healthy but also improves mental wellness. Experts have discovered that exercising for 20 minutes at 60 to 90% of your maximal heart rate three times per week will help alleviate anxiety.

If you have never exercised before, consult your doctor before beginning. There is some evidence that restarting aerobic exercise can cause more anxiety in people with anxiety disorders. Gradually increasing your activity can help your body adjust and avoid breathing issues. Activities such as running on a treadmill are examples of aerobic exercise.

Stop and take a break if you’re worried, hyperventilating, or having trouble breathing, or choose a more moderate choice, such as Yoga.

Internally, Repeat a Mantra.

Internally repeating a mantra can be soothing and calming, and it can provide you with something to hold on to throughout a panic attack.

Repeat a mantra in your thoughts until the panic episode subsides, whether it’s simply “This too shall pass” or a mantra that speaks to you personally.

Set a Bedtime for Yourself.

Isn’t there any time for sleep in your busy schedule? Some workaholics boast about just needing three or four hours of sleep every night, as if to say, “I’m more committed and driven than everyone else.” But, despite what you may believe, you are not a robot. Sleep is necessary for humans to operate properly, therefore unless you’ve been beaming in from another planet, this also applies to you.

Chronic sleep deprivation puts you vulnerable to anxiety, whether you have insomnia, intentionally limit your sleep, or are a self-proclaimed night owl. Get eight to nine hours of sleep every night to do yourself (and everyone else) a favor.

Create a bedtime routine that includes reading a book or doing something soothing before going to bed. The better prepared you are to get a good night’s sleep, the higher sleep quality you will have, which will lead to a better morning.

Bottom Line

Recognize that anxiousness is a significant issue. Many people do not seek the support they need to enhance their quality of life because of social stigma. Contact a doctor or a specialist if things get out of hand. Remember that panic attacks may be controlled and you can live a normal life if you use some of these coping techniques.
