Positive Self-Leadership: Transform Your Life with The Effectiveness Equation

Hi Dr. Scott Zarcinas (aka DoctorZed) here, Founder of 818: Unlocking Your Life.

Since 2008, I’ve learned that one of the biggest stumbling blocks for my clients is know-how. They simply don’t know where to begin or what to do to change their life for the better.

So let’s talk about one of the concepts of Positive Self-Leadership, “The 2 States of Transformation”, and how you can use these states to build better habits and achieve your goals.

As a general rule, everybody has two states of existence:
1. The state where they are now—current.
2. The state where they want to be—desired.

But whatever state you are in currently, the successful arrival at your desired future state requires 3 things:
1. An effective formula.
2. Effective discipline.
3. Effective habits.

The Process of Transformation

Most people, however, fail to achieve the results they want and are less effective than they had hoped for because:
1. They fail to create or find an effective formula.
2. They are not disciplined even if they do find an effective formula.
3. They establish bad habits.

If you don’t find an effective formula, then any formula will do. But that means any result will do, which is not conducive to a healthy, prosperous, or happy life.

Following an effective formula, being more disciplined, and developing better habits are essential steps in becoming effective and successful in your endeavours, and each arises from a positive mental attitude—from the way you think.

What You Can Do: Find a Formula that Works and Stick to It

Failure to plan or follow a formula, being ill-disciplined about that plan, and hanging onto bad habits are essential steps in becoming ineffective and failing in your endeavours, and each arise from a negative mental attitude—from the way you think.

How you think will be the difference between being more effective or ineffective in achieving your goals.

Positive Self-Leadership is about embracing good self-management, nurturing a positive mindset, cultivating the right attitude, being authentic, and striving to become the best version of yourself.

One of the 5 guiding principles of Positive Self-Leadership is T: Transformation. Finding a formula that works and sticking to it is one of the best ways to utilise this principle and transform your life into a healthier, more prosperous, and happier experience.

And one of the best formulas I use that has helped my clients achieve great results is The Effectiveness Equation.

You have most probably heard of Einstein’s famous equation, E = MC², where E is energy, M is mass, and C is the speed of light (which is the fastest thing in the universe at nearly 300,000,000 metres per second).

Likewise, your professional and personal effectiveness can also be expressed as a formula, whereby your effectiveness is the product of your mental, emotional, and physical ability to cause an intended outcome or result.

In my book, The Flea Circus, I’ve adapted Einstein’s equation to take into account these factors and produced an equation that you can follow to supercharge your effectiveness:

E = MC² (or E = M x C₁ x C₂ )

In this new equation, E is effectiveness, M is mindset, C₁ is capability, and C₂ is capacity.

Your mindset, capability, and capacity are the three essential or dependent variables that determine your overall level of effectiveness, and thus self-leadership.

According to The Effectiveness Equation, along with the right mindset, the higher your capability and the higher your capacity, the higher your personal and professional effectiveness will be.

Anything that boosts your capability and capacity will boost your effectiveness. Anything that limits or diminishes your capability and capacity will limit or diminish your effectiveness.

These three variables—mindset, capability, capacity—are therefore what you need to focus on to be more effective and transform your life for the better.
