You work hard to create a company culture with high moral, low turnover, and engaged employees who are dedicated to their work. Yet, no matter what you try and how much you do to support your staff, your company morale is low, engagement and productivity are down, and your employees are leaving. 

With no clear cause you’re left wondering what you’re missing and how you can create positive change that will last beyond a keynote presentation at a company-wide training day. The truth is it’s not the organizational policies that need to change. The power lies in the hands of your employees and it’s your job to show them how to access this.

So what is standing in the way of your employees realizing their role in improving company culture and owning their responsibility for their job satisfaction?

The answer is and always will be compassion, and in this episode I’m going to tell you why.

Why you need to be a habit changing ninja

What do you think of when you imagine a ninja?

Someone stealthy, who can sneak around and stay out of sight?

Someone who is highly skilled and knowledgeable about what they need to do to accomplish their mission.

And, let’s be real here, they’re also someone who was capable of covert espionage and quietly assassinating their enemy.

Now that you have that image in your head, I’m going to tell you why you need to embody your inner ninja when it comes to changing your life habits.

7 reasons why it’s hard to eat healthy when you’re stressed

Did you know that the food marketing industry spends five-hundred times more money on getting us to buy foods that contribute to weight-gain than global health organizations spend on disease prevention?
Yes, you heard that right.
500 times more money is spent on enticing us to eat highly processed, high fat, high carb food than global health organizations spend to try and improve our health.
No wonder obesity and weight-related health problems are on the rise!
If that just blew your mind, you’re going to like this episode.

Why your inner critic is keeping you stuck

Our body’s stress response was designed for a quick run-away-from-a-bear kind of situation that would be over quickly, one way of the other.
Well, that got dark.
But you know what I mean.
Our stressors about money, work, family dynamics, expectations we and others put on ourselves, those stressors don’t disappear and leave us in this constant stressed-out state I call default survival mode.
Being in this constant state of stress, though, is really dangerous for our overall health and wellbeing. In this episode I’m going to talk about what we need to watch for, but of course also things you can do to lower your risks of disease by consciously learning how to control your stress response.
And it’s easy, my friend. Easier than you may think.

Why you had no choice BUT to be unhealthy, unhappy and unfulfilled

You have not consciously chosen to experience all the trauma and struggle in your life.

It’s not your fault.

You were living in stressed-out default survival mode, with your Inner Critic making all the decisions, following your pre-programmed habits and behaviours and following what society and the current trends say you should be doing.

Your Inner Critic’s job is to keep you safe, and your life right now, even with all your struggle and unwanted habits is safe because it is known.

Your body doesn’t like change and responds to change with fear and by turning on your stress response – even if you’re creating positive healthy change.

There are three main obstacles that stand in your way of creating positive change in a way that doesn’t trigger your Inner Critic and activate your stress response.

Positive thinking is useless against negative self-talk

Affirmations like “I am enough” and “I am worthy” are so freaking popular right now.

Sayings like this are everywhere!

It’s this idea that if you want to overcome negative self-talk you just need to think positive thoughts and everything will be fine.

But the truth is that it doesn’t work for the vast majority of people, and for the people that it does work for – it takes for freaking ever.

And you don’t want to wait for forever – you want things to be different now! Right?

You want to silence your inner critic and never have another irrational emotional reaction again!

If you’re thinking ‘yup! That’s what I want!’ – this is for you.
