13 Things You Should Give Up If You Want To Be Successful

 

The fundamental idea behind ENMEI is that there are five essential cycles or ‘rings’ that drive long-term excellence. I suggest that there is a specific order in which these cycles must be repeatedly revisited. Like the planets in our solar system, the orbit and movement of each planet is critical to maintaining a balance for the whole.

At the core of the ENMEI solar system are the circles of mental/physical excellence. Part of the cyclical process often involves the shedding of toxic mental & physical elements. Or in the words of Miyamoto Musashi,

Below is a good post from LinkedIn.com about shedding useless acts.

Goodreads | Review of The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business

Perhaps one of the most relevant books of the last decade. In an age of information overload, connected devices and unprecedented technological change, there gives rise to whole new series of potential habits. This book provides sound evidence to the personal, economic and social implications that these new habits bring.

This book also provides scientific evidence to what I call, “Personal Gravity“; Developing habits of mental excellence leads to new habits of physical excellence, which leads to habits of skills excellence, which leads to habits of excellence at the team and organizational level. That’s the core of the ENMEI Formula.

Mental Excellence is one of five core concepts in ENMEI. Circular because habits need to be constantly revisited and cultivated in order to master.

“Excellence is not an act but a habit” – Aristotle | LinkedIn

One of the first principles of ENMEI is that sustaining excellence for the long haul begins at only one place, the mirror. All the external systems, strategies, inspiration and coaching in the world will only go so far and last for so long. History has given us many examples of people who come from unremarkable beginnings that go on to do remarkable things, in many fields; Theodore Roosevelt, Albert Einstein, Gandhi, Chuck Yeager, Steve Jobs and Miyamoto Musashi to name a few.  All of these people understood that motivation was intrinsic, that sustained excellence was a product of introspection and consistent dialogue with the person in the mirror.

Here is a recent example, a post from James Caan, the CEO of Hamilton Bradshaw.
