Changing Your Life the Kaizen Way
The Japanese word "kaizen" is the process of making simple, small improvements consistently that over time will change your life. It's a powerful yet simple way to transform every area of your personal and professional life. It's how you create a support system that automatically aligns you with your goals and makes creating "I-Space" natural and organic.
The beliefs that we hold in our lives and in the work we do control all of our decisions, and therefore our future. One of the most positive "BS" (belief systems) we can adopt is that in order to succeed and be happy we have to be constantly improving, growing and expanding.
The Japanese understand this principle well. They understand that tiny improvements made daily begin to create quantum results at a level that most people can't imagine. They have a saying "If a man has not been seen for 3 days, his friends should take a good look at him and see what changes have befallen him." Interestingly, we have no English equivalent for the word "kaizen."
This simple organizing principle can make a huge impact in your life. Most of us never feel secure or happy for long because we are always worried about losing something – our jobs, our health, finances – ourselves! The only way to truly be at ease comes from knowing that every day you're a commitment to moving forward in your life in some way. You're not tolerating or maintaining – you're improving. It doesn't become overwhelming because those improvements are small. Baby steps. But very powerful. Because I'm blessed (and cursed) with a curious nature, I realized I've been doing this naturally most of my life and never realized there was a name for it.
Remember the saying "A year from now you will have wished you started today?" Small improvements are believable and therefore achieveable (Anthony Robbins). It's always your "BS" that will motivate you – either toward what you want or away from it.
