In our hyper-complex lives — especially with the demands entrepreneurs face — things often break down when it’s least convenient. As a result, we scramble for quick solutions to our problems. But rushing through our goals and tasks, whether we’re selling a product or losing weight, often leads to more mistakes and time delays.
These reactions have led to the growing popularity of life coaches and self-help gurus touting their “7 Easy Steps to This” and “30 Days to Change That.” But these aren’t good enough; they’re simply bandages on blunt traumas.
The problem is that these plans aren’t designed with your entire life in mind, from your personal relationships to your mental outlook on your professional goals. They focus on providing a temporary remedy rather than attacking the problem at its source.
Instead of trusting quick-fix resources and perpetuating this situational mentality, you have to consciously shift your perspective to reach the ultimate level of personal and professional clarity and success — and to achieve unity in every aspect of your life.
Understanding Your Human Operating System
Don’t get me wrong; unwinding with a glass of bourbon in a hot tub after a difficult day can provide instant relaxation, but that’s not a long-term solution to life’s problems. Ask yourself: When something goes wrong, do you want to just recover, or do you want to use every interaction, anxious feeling, and mistake as an opportunity to make yourself better, stronger, and more resilient?

The only way to truly accomplish this is to recognize and utilize the marvel of engineering that is your own body. The complexity of the technology inside you — from your atoms to your bodily functions to your thought processes — resembles the operating system on a computer. Only this system has been around for billions of years.
The development of human self-operation is crowdsourced, scalable, and constantly improving. And you can tap into those improvements to become happier, more powerful, and more excellent every day — but only if you know how.
You are a fine-tuned machine if all is well, but if you’re infected with behavioral viruses, it can throw everything out of whack. Understanding the mechanisms of this machine can open the door to increasing self-awareness while unlocking the self-rehabilitation powers within your mind.
Instead of turning to life coaches, self-help gurus, and psychologists for every one of life’s glitches, you’ll find more value in exploring, repairing, and enhancing your internal operating system on your own. You can reprogram yourself to be a singular, unified system, free of destructive behavioral viruses.
You control the technology, but when a problem is well beyond your skill set to handle, it’s okay to consult psychologists as you would an Apple Genius — provided they’re skilled and have a proven track record of success. With a well-tended platform of self-operation at your core, you can make exponential improvements to your professional, personal, and spiritual life.
Programming Yourself for Success
Every business decision you make is an expression of you. If you’re operating in a state of distress, happiness, or fear, it will impact your choices and actions. Like throwing water over the side of a leaky boat, quick fixes will never overhaul your working style enough to permanently benefit your career. The only way to make lasting improvements in your work life is to operate as a single unified system that grows stronger with each passing year.
