Critical Mass Global Reviews Ways to Build Mental Strength

“Being able to develop mind endurance and strength takes a continuous effort. It’s packed with dedication and daily habits that ensure you do what you set out to achieve,” says Jherinson Almonte, managing director of Critical Mass Global. At Critical Mass Global, we always talk about how important mental strength is towards achieving goals. Once you set up your mind to follow something, it takes a lot of effort to implement it. “Building momentum with your mind to follow actions is something that requires a great amount of strength,” says Jherinson Almonte of Critical Mass Global. We’ve come up with a few tips and tricks to help you build your mental attitude and muscles to build that endurance and mindset.

 

Establish Clear Goals

 

“When our brain is wired to reach for a goal, it becomes a tad bit easier when you try to implement it,” says Jherinson Almonte of Critical Mass Global. For example, say you have a goal to lose 20 lbs. You can’t just drive towards losing 20 lbs if you don’t do anything. You need a structured plan as to how you’ll establish this and make it happen! With each result you see, you’ll become more confident and be glad that you made a plan, instead of blindly going into something

 

Be Positive & Set Yourself for Success

 

Becoming mentally stronger has a lot to do with how you perceive yourself. IF you keep telling yourself, you’ll fail, or you can’t do it. Chances are you won’t and can’t do it. But if you tell yourself you can and push yourself every day, set yourself up for success then there’s no way that you won’t get what you’re looking for.

 

Strive

 

It can get tough sometimes to be consistent and stick to what you’re doing. It’s hard to stay on the course with everything else going on in your life. “However, when you have a clear mission about what you want to accomplish, make it your goal to strive hard and go after it,” says Jherinson Almonte of Critical Mass Global. Focus every single day on your goal and make sure you follow each step you set out to do. That when you’re striving.

Critical Mass Global Reviews Becoming an Optimist

At Critical Mass Global, we know there are occasions and reasons where individuals are let down. We sometimes feel hopeless if things aren’t going our way. Challenges in personal, health, career or relationships can make it feel like it’s the end of the world. But moving forward and past the fears all depends on having the right attitude. “To combat negative feelings and overcome the hurdles, having an optimistic attitude and perspective is crucial. There have been many moments where I was let down, but one thing kept me steady: my attitude. It’s the key to all successful individuals and finding ways to combat negatives views helps turn your perspective around,” says Jherinson Almonte, Managing Director of Critical Mass Global.

 

Our team at Critical Mass Global have come up with strategies to overcome every day negative thoughts and turn them into positive ideas to help you succeed.

 

Accept That Things Happen

 

It’s important to remind yourself about all the bad things that have ever happened. You wouldn’t be where you are today if it wasn’t for those adverse situations. You overcame those, and you will overcome any negative situation. “Having this type of mindset will enable your mind to think positively. You’ll be able to tell yourself you can do this,” says Jherinson Almonte.

 

Be Grateful and Count Blessings

 

From time to time, remembering what you have, instead of what you don’t can enable you to think more positively. This type of energy brings in positivity into your life. Being this way will also attract more good.

 

Use an Outlet

 

“Being able to talk to a trusted individual about the negative aspects of your life is something that’ll help you take a load off. Sometimes another person’s perspective will help you put your perspectives in place,” says Jherinson Almonte of Critical Mass Global.

 

Try New Things

 

Try different methods and tactics to change your outcomes. With trial and errors, you will see what is working. It’ll make you feel as though you are doing things worthwhile towards a goal and that induces positivity. If you see no resolution to a situation try a different approach and new things.

It’s important to have this mindset in the business industry because there will always be risks and uncertainty in any decision. The main goal is to make that smart, well-thought decision and see where it will lead you. At the end you won’t have any regrets,” says Jherinson Almonte of Critical Mass Global.

Critical Mass Global Notes The Value of Pursuing Your Goals After Graduation

 

Nora Roberts had once said, “If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.” At Critical Mass Global, we believe that this statement is incredibly important to those about to start a new journey. As graduate season approaches and young students are thinking of what to do with their lives. “It’s important to make the first move towards what you desire the most,” mentions Jherison Almonte, Managing Director of Critical Mass Global. Many people will tell you that you have time and not to worry about the future, but it’s in your hands to control what you become for your future. At Critical Mass Global we believe there is an importance of time and by wasting it and not using it wisely it doesn’t get any individual far in life. We’d like to offer some tips of advice with those about to venture out into the new world and secure that important new job role.

 

Always utilize your education and keep up with it. You may have heard this numerous times, but constantly learning and knowing you’re never really done with obtaining new knowledge is what sets you apart. Life after graduation does not mean ending your education or you’re done. It means it’s the beginning to make yourself even better with obtaining real world skills and creating yourself into someone you see is worthy of success. “Another important but cliche type of tip would be patience. Younger individuals find it frustrating when they don’t get their dream job right away. It’s important to realize that it’s extremely tough out there in the job market. Work on what you can achieve realistically rather than reaching for your desired job with the desired salary right away,” says Jherison Almonte of Critical Mass Global. This means you need to work your way up, there’s a certain greatness in patiently working upward to your dream and those are the sweetest victories.

 

Last but not least, when you decide to give a new workplace a chance do your utmost to be the best. Entrepreneur.com describes this as, “Win big and win some.” They write, Before you join the company, while you have a clean slate, figure out what the “win big” opportunity may be if you dedicate your working years to one company. More importantly, figure out how this position, time and experience will help you if you leave the company. Putting effort into your “pre-launch” can make your first gig a success that you can carry on for the rest of your career.” This is an important tip we stand by at Critical Mass Global. It’s important to action towards your goals after graduation. This is what sets you apart and keeps you competitive in the job field.

Critical Mass Global Shares 5 Tips To Maximize Daily Productivity

Critical Mass Global knows that business leaders and entrepreneurs have a heavy and packed schedule that sometimes doesn’t even fit 24 hours in a day. There’s always some things they have to do and business to take care of. However, there are some tips and advice Critical Mass Global would like to offer those who struggle with utilizing their daily productivity. You can customize these tips to fit your everyday routine. “The key is consistency. I have learned throughout the years that being busy is fine as long as you cultivate habits that make everyday productive and useful,” says Jherison Almonte, Managing Director of Critical Mass Global.

  1. Start the day the night before. Do what you can the night before to cut some work out for the next day. “Whatever you want to get done in the morning, do it before you sleep. For example, pack a lunch, organize your briefcase or gym bag. Just make sure to do the quick things before hand so you’ll have the opportunity to knock them off your list,” mentions Jherison Almonte of Critical Mass Global. Set up your alarm and do not by any means waste time by keeping your phone on loud to get disturbed throughout the night.
  2. Relax your brain. Meditation is important and essential for your mind. 5-10 mins a day in the morning can help you adopt a positive attitude and establish efficiency throughout the day. Meditation has been proven to help lower stress level and keep the mind at a healthy flow. When you wake up in the morning, doing this will help your mornings be more positive.
  3. Stay organized. It’s easy to forget what you need to do if you don’t write things down or set reminders for yourself. Try to time manage everyday by writing your daily tasks down on apps like Trello, for example. Or even the calender app, which is very useful for reminders.
  4. Stay energized. The most important aspect to staying productive throughout the day is to be hydrated and fed. Remember to eat because food is fuel for your body to stay running and your mind to stay active. Skipping meals will not be the best choice because that’s counter-productive.
  5. Log off from work. When you’re done for the day and leaving, try to disengage from work and focus on other things. “The time you spend outside of work greatly impacts your work in general,” says Jherison Almonte of Critical Mass Global. It is important to spend time with your family or significant other, and sometimes just leave the work at the office.

We hope that these tips help you in creating your everyday more productive. “Do your best to stick through these diligently and create a consistency — that’s the only way to form good habits that maximize productivity” mentions Jherison Almonte.

Critical Mass Review Culture Branding

The United States is a diversity loving country. Whether it’s record breaking pop music, modern art galleries, or contemporary dance, we can’t get enough of it. It would seem to make sense, therefore, for businesses to embrace culture as part of their branding. This isn’t as easy as it might seem. If the brand and the cultural element aren’t natural bedfellows, it can seem false and contrived. An article in Branding Magazine looked at one example of cultural branding that was a perfect fit, the collaboration between OK Go and Honda. Here, Critical Mass review the article and consider how businesses can tap into culture.

“Culture is a very personal thing, so what one person loves, another may hate”, said Jherinson Almonte, director of Critical Mass. “For this reason, it’s essential that a business thinks carefully before allying themselves to any one brand. In this case, the link has worked perfectly. OK Go are at the cutting edge of pop music, and Honda themselves are technological innovators. It’s a great example of cultural branding done in the right way.”

OK Go have been making thought provoking alternative music since 1998. In that time, their music and lyrics have garnered critical acclaim, but they are even more famous for their innovative music videos. Their videos don’t feature special effects, models or film stars, and are often low budget, but they catch the eye and ear of consumers. Their breakthrough in this field came in 2006, with their video for ‘Here It Goes Again’. The video featured the band members performing on treadmills. It quickly went viral, won awards, and has often been imitated. To date, the video has received over 50 million views.

The Entrepreneur article looks at the video for their new song, ‘I Won’t Let You Down’. The band collaborated with Honda throughout the video. In a nod to the treadmill, they are seen riding UNI-CUBs, a miniature and futuristic personal transport device that the Japanese company are developing. The video itself is shot by a Honda drone known as an ‘octopus’. Honda has wisely stepped back from overtly advertising themselves in the video, and concentrated instead on the fun and playful aspects of their products.

“This is a great music video, that brings a smile to your face”, said Jherinson Almonte of Critical Mass. “Honda have played it perfectly, by letting the video stand as a piece of popular culture, rather than an advert in itself. In this way, they are showcasing not only their technological innovations but their ‘cool’ credentials.”

Critical Mass are themselves masters of marketing innovation. Their bespoke campaigns increase customer acquisition and brand growth.
