The way to improve or evolve the quality of your service to others is by taking time for self-reflection each day. The Innerwealth Hour of Power is one powerful way of doing that (always at the start of the day). Here are the ten important ingredients of the Innerwealth Hour of Power.
1. TIme Limit … Self reflection is essential in order to evolve, but it was never meant to last all day. With Turning Up being the ultimate definition of a great day, the Hour of Power is the Opposite, it’s a time for Turning IN – Introspection. We show you how to do it well.
2. Know when to upgrade… Anything that’s not rewarding is going to fizzle out. No matter how committed you are enjoying this time of introspection and feeling rewarded for doing it are important. Self-Talk is the key and
3. Recognise when you lose it … Red Flags are early warnings that prevent you getting depressed, angry, blaming, critical, tired and or addicted to uppers or downers. Early response can save a whole lot of heart ache.
4. Measure – DO the Garmin. One of the seven areas of your life that is included in the Hour of Power is your Health. For the ten minutes allocated for health in the Hour of Power each exercise you do in the Hour of Power needs monitoring and feedback for quality control.
5. Come Away Ready. At the end of your session you can do the following three point check. Am I Balanced, Centred, Calm? If the answer is yes, then make it the last time today that you contemplate how you’re feeling and get on with making others thrive.
6. Do it regardless. Sometimes we defer our Hour of Power for later. Later rarely comes. So, instead it’s best to get up, get down and start almost straight away. Usually within a few minutes it’s so uncomfortable, so don’t even think about deferring it.
7. Enjoy the Hour. There is only one reason to do the hour of power and about 20 million not to. So, the simple reason to do it has to be strong. It’s your time, enjoy it – evolve yourself. That’s reason enough.
8. Challenge Yourself. See if you can do a string of unbroken days of power hours. Even if the hour is ten minutes….
9. Bounce out. If the dog licks you, cat purrs, the kids jump on your head or breakfast is ready, just jump with joy and go do whatever. Holding rigid to a schedule or trying to make something happen while multi tasking is a pure waste of energy. Just go with the flow.
10. Overcome the daily ME, ME. The ultimate realisation of self help is that there’s no self to help. So, rather than consider yourself as something fixed, assume you’re getting better and smarter, just try to create a self that loves to improve.
