"Decide what you want to be -- and go be it!"
~Tequila Truck

Habits2Goals welcomes back former co-host Henry J. Evans, a dynamic marketing expert, best-selling author, speaker and consultant on accountability, strategy execution and emotionally intelligent leadership.

Henry discusses his reaffirmed belief in the PARR methodology and how important it is to track and measure your behavior. "That which is tracked and measured is improved!"

MG shares his most recent behavior-tracking journey, "The Path to 178!" where he vowed to reduce his body fat to lower levels than when he was 38 years old. 

Tracking, both hosts, explain, is the ironic path to freedom! Recall:   "discipline = freedom."

Henry shares that a trusted tracking system lets you "offload" these things from your mind, helping you truly be in the present. Save the mind for big thinking!

The Big Idea discussed in this episode springs from both meditation and tequila: A tequila truck sign that read, "Decide what you want to be and go be it!"

This unlikely source of wisdom inspires a deeper insight into behavior and tracking: What is stopping you from becoming the person you really want to be?

More importantly, WHO do you want to be and WHERE do you want to go? And what matters more: the WHO or the WHERE?

Listen in to hear a fascinating discussion about how DECIDING is the key to going where you want to go and being who you want to be -- and how it all circles back around to forming those positive behaviors / habits that support your goals!

Enjoy the show!

“If you want to become all you can become, do all you can do, hear all you can hear, see all you can see, you’ve got to learn how to handle frustration." ~Tony Robbins
 
This intriguing Mind-Bullet Monday episode is inspired by something Tony Robbins shares in his book Unlimited Power: The 5 Keys to Wealth and Happiness -- which effectively coincide with both The Habit Factor and to an even greater degree, The Pressure Paradox.

Viewed from The PRISM Of PRESSURE in particular, the first four keys are particularly insightful, directly relating to our ability to understand and respond to pressure -- and how to use it to your advantage.

According to Tony's concepts, we see that in many ways, pressure is an essential force for wealth and happiness!

Listen in to hear how each of these concepts ties back to pressure and how to turn your obstacles into opportunities for greatness.

"The more we do a thing, the easier it is to do. It's not that the nature of the task has changed, but our ability to do it has increased."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

When you want to develop a habit -- getting up early, for example, or flossing -- you may wonder how long will it take. Despite articles that say 21 days or 66 days, the answer isn't clear cut. Desire is the foremost component, followed by the capacity to perform the work and the knowledge about how to get it done.

The key to habit development and perhaps success itself is HabitStrength!

It's important to know that HabitStrength increases over time with consistent use -- and, it isn't binary. 

By following the P.A.R.R. methodology (Plan, Act, Record, Reassess), for each 4 week period you increase your frequency per week and minimum success criteria. By doing so your HabitStrength increases!

Listen in for tips and examples on increasing your HabitStrength and meeting your goals more easily!

Enjoy the episode!

"Your accountability group is NOT the determining factor, your desire is."

Accountability can certainly help alter and affect your environment, leading to the performance of better behaviors and habits.

But there's a downside to accountability: Some of us defer -- giving up our ownership, control and responsibility. If you think you need accountability to succeed, you are at serious risk of failing!

You are your own and best source of accountability. If you really want it -- your goal, behavior, etc. -- OWN IT! The best way to really own it is to begin tracking your behaviors and hold yourself accountable.

All you need is YOU, a piece of paper or a simple app, and the WILL to hold yourself accountable!

The difference is your desire.

Listen in to hear more about holding yourself accountable through the magic of habit tracking.

Enjoy!

“The years teach much which the days never knew." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today's Mind-Bullet Monday is a little heavy, but very necessary to consider: Have a philosophy. Have a set of beliefs and ideals that you can lean on and stand by.

Harkening back to a few episodes ago, the Self Concept and its importance, your philosophy is the next critical piece of the framework supporting your being.

Everyone is ultimately a product of their own philosophy -- their beliefs and ideals -- but always leaving yourself open and adaptable. ("You don't know what you don't know.")

How do you start crafting a philosophy you believe in? It's a process that can begin with examining your values! Values will help to form a personal philosophy.

What do you stand for? What do you believe in?

Tune in to hear how trusting your ideas and beliefs is essential and how it is why The Habit Factor itself came to fruition.

"People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals."
~Tony Robbins

When you rolled out of the rack this morning, were you fired up? Or did you think of it as just another grind?

If you don't have a goal that excites you, you may just be going through the motions.  

Maybe you're saying, "I don't really want the type of goal that scares me!" Well, as Martin shares, he's never felt more alive than when he was in the process of attacking a big, hairy, audacious goal!

So, what fires you up every morning? Are you exciting to be learning, growing and challenged?

Find the beauty of waking up to a goal that scares you (at least a little bit) — in a good way.  

Enjoy the episode!

Noun: The action of looking thoughtfully at something for a long time.

This special, non-interview Wednesday "Mind Bullet" is inspired by a previous episode, The Best Use of Your Mind, where MG breaks down the profound insights in David Allen's fantastic book, Getting Things Done! -- namely, that writing down your ideas and thoughts frees space for new creativity.

"The weakest ink is stronger than the strongest memory."

But today's mind bullet is the exact opposite — celebrating the capacity to hold on to an idea and truly, deeply contemplate it.

Contemplation is the capacity to grasp an idea and study it over a long period of time. We're talking deep, reflective thought.

Challenge yourself to do both! Appreciate the value of emptying your mind (in this overly-stimulated world) AND, find value and magic in contemplating "big" ideas for long periods of time.

Hear how years of contemplation led to the creation of both The Habit Factor and The Pressure Paradox. (Ten years between the two books).

So what's the big idea you're contemplating these days?

Enjoy!

"Catch People Doing Things Right." ~ Ken Blanchard
 
Today's Mind-Bullet Monday is based on Ken Blanchard's brilliant book on positive relationships, Whale Done!

As a leader/parent/partner, how do you get people to do what you want/need them to do? More importantly, how do you get YOURSELF to do what needs to be done? In Whale Done, Ken shares how it's crucial to catch people doing something right ("Whale Done!) instead of catching them doing something wrong (Gotcha!).

Think about it: Trainers have somehow convinced 5-ton whales to leap out over the water and jump over a rope. How is that possible?

Turns out the trick the whale trainers use is to simply begin with the rope underwater! Then, over time, slowly and incrementally they increase the rope's height all while offering intense praise and rewards— accentuating the positive!

MG asserts that if this is the process to get a 5-ton whale to jump out of the water... how can it not work with other people— even difficult people and most importantly, ourselves — to achieve our seemingly insurmountable goals and challenges.

In fact, this is precisely what The Habit Factor's methodology has always taught, particularly when it comes to PARR: Plan, Act, Record, Reassess. You set the bar (for your behavior/habit) low, track, be consistent, and move positively toward your goal, increasing the habit's strength!

What (or who) is the 5-ton whale in your life? How can you bring about change by setting the bar super-low (underwater) and creating powerful, positive momentum?

Enjoy!

Today's FAF (Frequently Asked Friday) is a back-to-basics concern: "Why do habits exist?"

At first blush, this may seem like a nonsensical question, but the question and its answer became life-altering for MG!

As The Habit Factor book and app was being created, MG Googled the burning question, "Why do habits exist?" He got a big fat nothing! Not only were there no answers, but the question hadn't even been asked yet.

Today you get a very different result, with some differing reasons and motivations— nonetheless, the answer isn't easy to come by. (MG wrote more about this in this blog post.)

Listen in to learn what is at the very root of The Habit Factor, and the ideas behind Habit Alignment technology being the key to goal achievement

“The essence of goal achievement: You are energy, and your goal is going to require energy...Habit alignment, therefore, is the most efficient way to achieve your goal.”

In a special, non-interview Wednesday "Mind Bullet," MG shares how anyone can "bridge the gap" -- that is, go from point "A" (where they are now), to point "B" (their goal)!

Bridging the gap is essentially what everyone wants to do. Yet few of us understand how to go about goal achievement in the most efficient and effective way possible: habit alignment.

MG leads the listener through a simple exercise and explains a radical realization -- one he wishes he was taught 30-plus years ago: HABIT (and "habit alignment") is the key to goal achievement. And the best way to develop supportive habits is to follow P.A.R.R.: Plan, Act, Record and Reassess.

New listeners: By texting the word "HABITS" to the mobile phone number "33444" you will instantly receive your "hack"/habit tracker/habit development template, or you can download it here: thehabitfactor.com/templates

This, my friends, is how you bridge the gap!

“If anything is a miracle, then everything is." 

Today's Mind-Bullet Monday explores the idea that if anything at all can be called a miracle, then everything must be a miracle.

Why does the heart begin to beat? Why do we yawn? How is it that our planet rotates on an axis at 1000 miles an hour and rotates around the sun at almost 70,000 miles per hour and you are sitting there reading this? How does this one planet have all the ingredients for life?

Miracles.

MG explores the idea that everything around us is a miracle -- but like habit -- we are so surrounded by it that we cease to recognize it. We're swimming in miracle after miracle but we are so desensitized that we don't revel in the magic and beauty of it all.

So how does this affect you?

YOU are part of everything. And if everything is a miracle so are YOU! You have the ability to create — to co-create your own ideal future.

Don't fall into the illusion that miracles are few and far between. YOU are part of the miraculous everything!

Without illusion there can be no enlightenment.

"Prayer is you speaking to God. Meditation is allowing the spirit to speak to you."
~Deepak Chopra

Mantras? Levitation? In Today's FAF (Frequently Asked Friday) MG addresses the misunderstandings surrounding meditation and reveals how his practice has influenced so many areas of his life including the creation of The Habit Factor.

After recently stumbling upon the book The Lazy Way To Success, MG came to realize the error in his "efficient" meditation ways — namely that meditation should not be rushed. (Listen in to MG's interview with Lazy Way author Fred Gratzon here.)

So, what's the difference between meditation and prayer? While both are spiritual and valuable, meditation is about becoming still, quiet and LISTENING to your spirit and intuition. Prayer, on the other hand, is you speaking and communication in an outward bound fashion. 

MG shares his experience with both and how each has helped to inspired and influence so many aspects of his life.

“If you argue for your limitations, you get to keep them.”
~ Jim Kwik

"I'm not a good  _______________ " (fill in the blank)

"I'm the type of person who can ________________ " (fill in the blank)

Today's Mind-Bullet Monday examines the complex construct of our self concept: Did you know that consciously (mostly unconsciously) we allow the beliefs we've constructed about ourselves to define (and limit) ourselves?

We've all constructed a narrative about who we are as people. This set of beliefs -- structure -- becomes an intrinsic part of our identity.

The MOST IMPORTANT idea though is; because we've created our self-concept it is malleable, not fixed. Therefore, you have the power at anytime to redefine your limiting self concepts!

Think about it this way, who constructed the idea that you're, say, not a good reader?

After all, reading is a skill that you can get better over time!

The key idea is this, figure out where you've constructed barriers within your self concept -- and begin to tear them down, turning each perceived weakness into a strength.

How, you ask? Listen in for MG's tips on writing your new story by crafting the habits that support a new image.

Enjoy!

"It takes as much energy to hope
as it does to plan." ~Eleanor Roosevelt

Today's FAF (Frequently Asked Friday): "Are You Still Hoping?"

Are you hoping you'll get a better job? Make more money? Meet that special person.

Are you waiting for someone to call you out of the blue to offer you that big break?

We HOPE that you're NOT hoping!

The great Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "It takes as much energy to wish as to plan." Not to mention the energy that worrying sucks up!

So what's your plan?

We all need hopes and dreams -- but there's nothing preventing you from crafting a good plan -- a strategy. And what's the best place to start planning? Identifying the behaviors that align with your goals.

Enjoy the episode!

“The inward man is renewed day by day."

Today's Mind-Bullet Monday is near and dear to MG's heart: "The inward [person] is renewed day by day."

The concept of renewal is seen time and time again in Habits 2 Goals because it speaks to the incredible importance of silence --stillness, meditation -- to our health and wellness.

Finding time daily for quiet is a great start, but MG's new philosophy when it comes to stillness is: The more the better.

Meditation is transformative to the health of our thoughts and body and MG has learned there are no shortcuts.

Who's got time for any of this?

As Brian Tracy says, "There's never enough time to do everything, but there's always enough time to do the most important things."

Listen in to hear how and why meditation should be a non-negotiable part of your day.

Today's FAF (Frequently Asked Friday): "Who's the DJ in your life?"

When you're at a good party with great music, can you feel the energy? The good vibes uplift your mood and send you on a positive upswing!

With our habits of thought, we are essentially playing our own inner soundtrack on a daily basis -- these thoughts grow stronger the more they are played (repeated), just like any habit! And what you don't "play" /repeat gets weaker.

Take control of what your inner DJ is playing. Ensure your thought habits are aligned with our goals, taking you where we want to go.

If your inner DJ is playing songs of self-doubt -- over and over -- how can you tweak the soundtrack to select tracks that are supportive of your goals?

MG shares ways to train your inner DJ -- control your habits of thought -- to drive out the negativity and replace it with good "tracks" that can be put on replay!

"I really want people to stop complaining about life being hard and start choosing to be better."
~Cameron Herold

Author, speaker, visionary, lifelong entrepreneur and "CEO Whisperer" Cameron Herold is the mastermind behind the exponential growth of multiple companies.

Groomed to be an entrepreneur from childhood, Cameron always learned best by jumping in and running businesses -- in fact, he had run eight businesses by the age of 20 and coached 120 CEOs by the age of 28 -- achieving his "World MBA."

Cameron's true education was experience, living by the motto "Conceive, Believe, Achieve."

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not a single act, but a habit.”
~ Aristotle

"Ill habits gather by unseen degrees. As brooks make rivers, rivers run to seas."
~ Ovid

Today's Mind-Bullet Monday has us pondering the idea: We pay rent not once a month, but in actuality every day.

We like to think we pay our rent or mortgage once a month but the truth is we pay it every single day, simply divided by the days in a month.

In the same way, excellence doesn't come to us all at once. The price of excellence is paid every day, and the currency is habit.

Somewhere along the line we started looking for shortcuts. Going to the gym only when we feel like it. Waking up when we feel like it. Putting in the work sometimes. But ultimately these shortcuts backfire.

Build the discipline -- build the habit. This is where excellence lies: Excellence lies in paying the rent every day.

How can we shift our mindset to be willing to pay our rent every day? MG reminds us of a little something he likes to call P.A.R.R.: Plan, Act, Record and Reassess.

Enjoy!

Today's FAF (Frequently Asked Friday): "How can I be happy in a world gone crazy?"

Pollution, war, moral bankruptcy, atrocities that go beyond our comprehension -- we're living in a world full of challenges, and it's easy to become overwhelmed and depressed.

But we have lives to lead and children to raise, so how can we find a semblance of peace and happiness amid all the chaos?

MG addresses this question by reaffirming Buddha's observation... that bringing light to any darkness is the answer.

Being sad, down, and empathetic are normal reactions to the problems in the world -- but these emotions aren't helpful to the problem or, perhaps more importantly, yourself.

A quote often attributed to Buddha says: "Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of that candle cannot be shortened."

How can you make the decision -- the choice -- to be happy? How can you choose to be the light in spite of the darkness?

"My most important habit is looking at my own behavior — I've developed the habit of observing my own habits."
~Tim Ortiz

Entertainment industry entrepreneur Tim Ortiz is in the business of making dreams come true and memories that last a lifetime.

As the founder/owner of Event Vibe -- which handles bookings, ticketing, promotion and all aspects of nightlife events -- Tim knows that even in a glamorous industry, hard work and the daily grind pay off.

But Tim also knows that balance in life for entrepreneurs -- whose work is all-consuming -- is key to true success.

At around minute 38 in this episode, MG and Tim get into a deep and fascinating discussion about HABIT as it relates to success. An early enthusiast of The Habit Factor, Tim details how the Habit Factor methodology altered his perspective and how he began to view his world and his habits altogether differently.

Tune in to hear how Tim uses habit to achieve balance in life — and how he lifts himself up when the daily grind gets him down.

In typical "Habits 2 Goals" style, the interview covers everything from dealing with difficult days to defining success. We explore what habits are essential to the guest's success, advice the guest would give his/her 20-something self, favorite books, quotes and more.

“No man is free who cannot command himself.” ~ Epictetus

“Through discipline comes freedom.”
~ Aristotle

Today's Mind-Bullet Monday is a little risqué -- and risky: You may know someone who is a comfort whore... perhaps, intimately! (Google at your own risk!)

Building on previous episodes that center around the concepts of controls and constraints, MG revisits the idea that we are selling out our long-term goals for instant gratification.

There's nothing wrong with comfort; we all seek it, crave it and deserve it. But we need to do the hard stuff too.

How can you tell if you've become one yourself? MG suggests your results will speak for themselves. Is your health where you'd like it? How about your weight? Your work success? Are your goals being met?

Oscillation is key -- adding controls and constraints to our lives, mixed in with the comfort we seek, creates a healthy balance.

Remember, Habit works both ways: The stronger the comfort habit becomes, the more you threaten your true goals.

Nip it in the bud! Add controls and constraints. Do the hard stuff!

Tune in and get a "check up from the neck up" with MG.

Today's FAF (Frequently Asked Friday): "What's the best way to schedule your calendar?"

While this is a very personal process, MG shares a few tips and philosophies, which, of course, incorporate the magic of habit to boost efficiency.

Many businesses and entrepreneurs use the concept of Theme Days (e.g. marketing on Wednesdays) or creating "chunks" of time to dedicate towards a project.

However you dedicate your time, the key ideas are RHYTHM and PATTERN -- the overlay of rhythm and pattern work to reinforce habit.

The more rhythm and pattern in your calendar, the more efficient and effective you will be. Hmmm, sounds like Habit Alignment!

 How do YOU prioritize your schedule toward building a recurring behavior mechanism that sets you up for success? Tune in to the episode and start learning how to create rhythm and pattern in your calendar!

"How you start your day is arguably the single-most important determining factor in how you live your day... and how you live your day is how you live your life!"
~Hal Elrod

Hal Elrod is on a mission to elevate the consciousness of humanity, one morning at a time.

Hal is the author of The Miracle Morning -- which has been translated into 27 languages, has over 2,000 five-star Amazon reviews and is practiced daily by over 500,000 people in 70+ countries. In simplest terms, the Miracle Morning is a transformative 6-step morning routine based on the best habits Hal could find in books, in others and himself.

But Hal’s story is not a simple and straightforward success tale.

Hal grew up in a small mountain town near Yosemite, where he got his first taste of entrepreneurialism as a 15-year-old mobile DJ. He discovered his sales and people skills at 19 working for Cutco Cutlery. But a promising career – and his life – nearly ended forever after 20-year-old Hal was hit head-on by a drunk driver at 70 miles per hour. He was clinically dead for 6 minutes, broke 11 bones, and eventually woke from a coma to be told by doctors that he would never walk again.

Not only did Hal walk, he went on to run a 52 mile ultra-marathon and become a hall of fame business achiever, all before the age of 30.

Then, in November of 2016, Hal nearly died again—his kidneys, lungs, and heart on the verge of failing, which led to his being diagnosed with a very rare, very aggressive form of cancer (acute lymphoblastic leukemia).

After enduring the most difficult year of his life, Hal is now cancer-free and furthering his mission as the Executive Producer of The Miracle Morning Movie, a documentary that takes you around the world and shows you the life-changing impact that Miracle Mornings are having, globally.

Tune in to MG’s fascinating discussion with a truly inspirational author and speaker.

In typical "Habits 2 Goals" style, the interview covers everything from dealing with difficult days to defining success. We explore what habits are essential to the guest's success, advice the guest would give his/her 20-something self, favorite books, quotes and more.
