Here we are again, approaching the end of the year. It is a time when you may find your mindset taking on a feeling of gratitude. This year more than ever. What a wild ride it has been! Simply put, gratitude is the state of being grateful. It is also a two-way street: 1) When you are appreciative of what you have received, you have gratitude. That’s the only way that you can expect to get more of what you want. 2) When you express gratitude for what you have received, you are living in a grateful state? The only way others know how you feel is to tell them - right? Receiving and expressing gratitude requires few words. With practice, it requires even less thought. There’s no better way to make your day better than living will gratitude in your heart. Especially when you make sure the world knows it. Sponsored by Tri Niagen...

Are you feeling excited to be alive today? Why not fire yourself up by becoming a goal setter on a mission to maximize your life experience? I've said for years that goals are the heartbeat of your life. Goals make you feel alive and give purpose to your daily experience - and experience is what life is all about. You can also consider goals as tangible expressions of your values. Through your daily actions, you express how you feel on the inside. Goals are also automatic. Set them for yourself, or you'll find that other, well-meaning people will be happy to set them for you. The meaningful life you desire is a result of setting and pursuing meaningful goals. Never set goals and forget them. Set, pursue, and LIVE them. Sponsored by Blinkist... Go to Blinkist.com/BOOST to start your free 7-day trial and get 25% off of a Blinkist Premium membership.
How would you like to be more productive AND enjoy your day? I’ve always been the kind of person who believed that life is life. Whether living your personal life, working at your job, or building a business. You are still the same person no matter what you are doing. Leaving yourself behind while you do something else is not a recipe or success. Instead, as you go about the business of your day, why not have a little bit of YOU tucked in your back pocket? Do you have a hobby? Do you need to send a note to a loved one? Are you working your way through a romance novel? Your goal should be to find small breaks between your focus at work to be YOU for a few minutes before getting back to work. Two things will happen: 1) You’ll get more done. I promise. 2) You’ll be living your authentic self. No matter what you find yourself doing today, YOU are still YOU. Be a happier warrior and bring yourself to every challenge.

Have you been running full speed ahead - knowing you’re not heading in the right direction? It’s easy to get caught up in the business of life and find yourself off track. Could your experience could be better? It comes down to awareness and decisions: 1) Everything begins when you recognize that something needs to change - and admit it to yourself. Is the time now? 2) Driving forward will only add to unhappiness. Instead, keep up with life and push the pause button on everything else—no pulling or pushing. You are only pausing. 3) During this time, work your way back to YOU. There’s no hurry. You may have been off-track for a long time. 4) Remember your dreams. Now that you have space, it’s time to explore how everything fits into your life today - and your future. Begin to take action in any direction that makes you happy. Once you find enjoyment, accept it, and defend it with all your energy. Spend the rest of your days bringing more into your life. Sponsored by TEMPO...

  I spoke with a client a few days ago about what is expected from his employees while he is in the office. Like any successful business owner, he hits the ground running and leads be an example. Always available to help, his days were routinely becoming 16-hours long. Vacation days were 8-hours. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see how unsustainable that can be. And that’s not what anybody wants. Whether you work with family, staff, employees, or any group of people, they all want the same thing—empathy, understanding, and leadership. Begin every day by taking a few minutes to see your vision. Spend the day casting that vision; you’ll find that everybody is happier and more successful. The best leaders are members of the tribe, but they never forget their job is to lead others toward their vision. Sponsored by Nutrafol...

Are you a motivated individual? You’ve heard the secret to getting what you want to take action. But what kind of action? Do you choose “Massive IMPERFECT Action” focused on your goal? Willing to do whatever it takes and clean up your mess when you finish? Do you choose “How Bad Do You Want It Action” to fuel your efforts? Do you choose “I Better Do it or Else” ACTION because you see the pain coming if you don’t? Do you choose “You Better Do It or Else” because somebody else will bring the pain? Do you choose “I’m Waiting to See What Happens” ACTION and put your fate in something else? Do you choose “I’m Not Going to Do Anything” ACTION because you don’t know what to do? Whether your action is passive or active; there is a reward or penalty. You may as well select the one that serves you best.

Clarity is Playing at a Theatre Near You Have you noticed we live in an age when what you hear and see is not necessarily what is happening? It seems our shorter attention spans and social media have elevated attention-grabbing to the point where it overtakes clarity of message. One of my mentors is Donald Miller, the creator of Storybrand. He says, “if you make somebody burn too many calories to understand you, they will never understand you. They’ll move on to an easier choice.” Another one of my mentors is my son, Austin. He’s a smart young man these days, but I remember when he was five years old and taught me a lesson about clarity - when Disney released a new movie. Like most kids, Austin was excited and wouldn’t stop talking about it. One day I asked, in a very adult way, “Okay, where are we going to see this movie?” He answered, “At a theatre near you!” Yes. His answer was correct for a five-year-old who didn’t need to worry about which theatre had the film. After all, that’s Dad’s job. When your answer to questions creates more questions, everything takes longer to complete.

The Journey In Between

The Journey In Between

2020-10-2710:463

The Journey In Between Have you ever noticed that the most dramatic life changes happen when you are in between life events? In between jobs? In between relationships? In between anything? Sometimes in between is voluntary, like a vacation. Other times it is forced upon you like a job loss. In between presents an opportunity to change how you do things. Modify your daily experience. Even change your life direction. Being in between is almost always a pre-curser to change. That can be scary and exciting at the same time. If you think about your life, in between is where your most important decisions have taken place. There’s no need to fear change. That’s where the fun stuff begins - eventually.

Daily Rules For a Happier You Every day we all jump into the craziness of life without much thought to the basic rules we use to run our day. Here are a few of mine. You can borrow then if you would like: 1) Do what makes your heart sing. You'll always feel better when you are dancing down your path. 2) Believe anything is possible. As soon as you believe - everything IS possible. 3) Be nice to others. Expect them to do the same. No further explanation is required. 4) Believe in people and encourage their dreams. When you do, they'll return the favor. 5) Do the right thing. If you mess up, say you're sorry, try again. 6) Meet people where they are in their life and walk with them to where you both want to go. 7) Do what you say you will do. It's always better to under-promise and over-deliver. 8) Make lemonade out of lemons. Everything is fixable if you have the right mindset. 9) Keep things simple. Yup. 10) Relax. Life is short. Double yup. When you focus on life's big picture, it's easier to enjoy your daily experiences.
Year of Second Chances

Year of Second Chances

2020-10-2010:144

Year of Second Chances As we get closer to the end of 2020, I’m noticing there are two very different kinds of people in my life: 1) People who are waiting to see what is going to happen next. While they are living in everyday life, they are paused. 2) People who have decided that life is too short to wait for things to happen. They’re starting businesses, buying homes, traveling, and more. Have you taken advantage of the opportunity to reevaluate your path and live your passion in 2020? Are you willing to explore the possibilities of a new direction? While reserving the right to do nothing at all? Do you have desire or fear for things not in your life or anticipated for the future? Are things presently in your life causing you pleasure or distress? That should get the juices flowing. The reset has only begun. If you even want to reinvent yourself, this is the year to make it happen.
Everybody has a lot to do. If you use a To-Do list to keep up - and it's stressing you - it may be time to replace it with a "Did I Do It List."  To-Do Lists transform you into an expert at chasing checkmarks. Chasing anything is stressful - and there is a better way: 1) Never commit to more than you can get done in one day. That takes awareness and honesty. 2) Once you know what you need to get done, add it to your "Did I Do It List" and use it for reference throughout your day. 3) Always double-check that you are accomplishing tasks you determined as vital before taking on additional items. A focused path produces fewer random tasks. Using a "Did I Do It List" will focus you on your goals and create quick results.
Transitional Relationships Socrates had it right when it comes to friendship - “Be slow to fall into friendship, but when thou art in, continue firm and constant.” Having great friends and healthy relationships is an asset. They give you more energy and make life more enjoyable. But not all relations can or should last forever. Transitional relationships come into your life for a reason and a season. They could be a transactional relationship with a Realtor helping you sell your home. A mentor who steps into your life - even be a new romantic relationship after a breakup. Transitional relationships enter your life to help you go from where you are to where you want to go. Once you’re there, they are no longer needed.
Controlling Communication and Staying Focused We live in a world where an open communication line is a significant factor in moving forward. But how do you keep things flowing and stay focused on what is important to you? There is a method used by improvisational actors to keep the conversation flowing. It involves agreement and modifiers such as "Yes" and "And." Answering "Yes" removes any block and keeps the flow going. But since you want to control your focus, adding ”If” and “And" allows you to redirect for your benefit. Here's an example. Them: "Hey? Do you think you can help me with a project?" You: "Yes, I would love to help. IF it's okay, I need to finish what I'm doing, AND I can call you later." All it takes is three words for you to stay focused on the track to your goals.
Creating More Time For Yourself We all have lots to do every day. Wouldn’t it be great if you could manufacture more time?  The trick is how you prioritize tasks and projects already on your plate - and updating how you think: 1) If a task requires thinking, multitasking is a myth. You are switching your focus. That’s time-wasting and tiring. 2) Working on multiple projects that require your brain delays the outcome from every project on your list. 3) When you focus on completing a single project, you begin to get the benefits it produces far earlier - and longer. You will also find more time available for your next project. The next time you need more time to get things done, ask yourself - “What project or task can I complete that will begin producing results the fastest?” Get excited. You are about to build massive momentum!
Release Stress With Grounded Logic Are you feeling a little more stressed than you usual? I have a time-proven and very human way of releasing or at least managing your stress. If you can pause your mind from spinning for a few minutes, try this: 1) Recognize that you are viewing your current situation from an emotional state-of-mind. We all do. However, significant decisions rarely come from emotions. 2) While paused, gather all facts that are driving how you feel. The goal is to understand what is going on in your life logically. 3) Once you separate your emotions from the facts, you will see what is causing your stress. You will also see options for removing it from your life. 4) Now, it’s time to commit to taking action to remove what is causing stress - even if it scares you. Always check your emotions with logical thinking. When you do, a plan will emerge, and stress will disappear. Try it today.
7 Rules to Life-Long Happiness I'm a fan of Stoic Philosophy. While it may be over 2,000 years old, its practicality is still useful. These rules to live by will help you have a happier life: 1. If you're going to learn and succeed, be humble. There is always someone smarter, more successful, and wiser.  2. Find the right scene. Choose your friends and situations. If you want to rise in life, you can't allow yourself to be held down by others. 3. Protect your time. Seneca said, "We're tight-fisted with property and money, yet think too little of wasting time, the one thing about which we should all be the toughest misers." Life is short. 4. Never do anything out of habit. Always think about how you can do things better and always question yourself. 5. Keep it simple — do your job. Approach every task as if it were your last because it very well could be. 6. Adapt and learn from failure. Using your success to justify complacency is common. It's also easy, which is why most people do it. You can do more and be better. 7. Live below your means. The more you need work to maintain your needs, the less you will enjoy what you have. Everything in life comes down to keeping things simple and mastering the basics. That's how you get the success you deserve.
4-Question To Ask Before Starting Any Goal Do you have dreams of what you want for the future? Have you ever wondered your inner-voice will lead you in the right direction? These four questions will help sort out everything for you: 1) What is it? Do you understand exactly what you want? 2) How does it work? How will you go about reaching your goal? What will likely be the outcome? 3) Can you do it? Is your plan reasonable? Do you have the time, skills, money? 4) Are you sure? If you are willing to put in the effort are you confident you can achieve your goal? Why hold yourself back from turning your dreams into reality? All you need is a little clarity.
Self-Made Success Requires No Permission The year 2020 has proven to be a never-ending challenge for many. It has also confirmed that having control of your mindset and actions are now pivotal traits. I've worked with thousands of people who find themselves against a wall and stuck in neutral. Two things always happened: 1) Through no fault of their own, everything familiar was no longer. They know they need to pivot but are frozen. 2) Not knowing which way to go, they were waiting for permission to get started - even if it was from themselves. The solution is to start thinking like a self-made person. Being self-made means that YOU decide what YOU want, and YOU don't need to wait for anybody's permission. You do it. You have everything inside of you to make 2020 a great year. Accept that change must happen and take action right away.

This podcast doesn't get it. If you are not motivated you are not excited to do something. Why would you lack motivation to do something that you have always been so excited and wanted to do. I think ppl do the shit they want to do and are excited about generally that is not the issue

Even if there are a lot of ads, I am motivated by Scott's tone, clarity and reasoning for the content in each episode. It's straightforward. Stop only learning and start doing. Just as "one of the biggest dangers in meditation is the pursuit of special experiences", I think it's also hard to get anything out of the content if you're looking for no ads and getting mad about that the whole time.
