“I am a great believer in luck, and I find that the harder I work, the more I have of it.” ~Thomas Jefferson

“I found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more of it, take more chances, be more active, show up more often.” ~Brian Tracy

This in-between season episode of Habits2Goals brings us a Mind Bullet Monday focused on luck!

When you think of luck, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Some people feel they're "lucky," while others insist they're just "unlucky." It stands to reason though that having the mindset that favorable events and opportunities are coming your way certainly can't hurt!

Teena Seelig's great Ted Talk on luck discusses the idea that increasing luck often involves the addition of some risk factor — emotional, spiritual, financial and more.

Taking more risks it appears allows for opportunities and chance to work in our favor. Every time you take a greater and greater risk, it allows your "luck sails" to catch more wind —opportunities according to Teena.

The point is, even though chance is always at play, how we think about luck and the risks we are willing to take to expand our comfort zone seems to greatly influence our capacity to receive it!

Thus, the harder you work, the more opportunities that present themselves.

"Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity." ~Seneca

We CAN BE the co-creators of our own luck!

Listen in for more on the interconnectedness of luck, opportunity and hard work, and how "cause and effect" -- aka karma -- and kindness comes into play!

Enjoy the episode! (Check out this list of inspiring quotes about getting started!)

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” ~Mark Twain

"What is not started today is never finished tomorrow." ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe 

"Action is the real measure of intelligence." ~Napoleon Hill

On a Magnificent Mind-Bullet Monday "tweener" episode, we connect to discuss a topic massive in its breadth, but often never given enough consideration: Starting. Getting started. Start! Begin!

Of course, everyone knows you have to start to achieve anything. But knowing and doing are two separate things. We can't complete something we've never begun.

Taking that first step is often the one thing keeping you from achieving your goals! Continuing on your goal's journey actually gets easier, over time, when you take advantage of the remarkable gift of HABIT!

But you can't craft supportive habits if you don't get started. So, use  S.T.A.R.T. as an acronym: Simple Today Actions that are Repeated and Tracked.

What are the habits that are going to be repeated from one day to the next that are going to fuel your goal achievement? 

"The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." Lao Tzu

Listen in for inspiration about getting started, and how HABIT can make the rest of the process much easier! YOU are the body in motion!

Enjoy the episode! (Check out this list of inspiring quotes about getting started!)

“Fear = False Evidence Appearing Real.”
~Zig Ziglar

This in-between season ("tweener") episode addresses a topic we've danced around in the past but never fully explored: Fear.

Fear can cripple our growth, stopping us from pursuing our goals. Coming at this topic from a few different angles.

What is the antidote to fear? Courage! But how do you develop and strengthen courage? Courage is (you guessed it) a habit!

The first step includes ACTION. When we become fearful we contract; there's less and less action, we begin to doubt ourselves, which feeds the fear— and a vicious cycle ensues.

Action fuels motivation, not the other way around. Action feeds courage. 

Listen in to hear how to take action in the face of fear and how pressure fits into the picture.

Enjoy the episode!

“I hope, therefore, that some my descendants shall follow this example [tracking habits] and reap the benefits.”
~Ben Franklin

As season 5 of Habits2Goals comes to an end, we introduce a new format: Once-a-week Mind Bullets that will serve to tide you over until season 6 officially begins! We hope this keeps you fired up as you head toward your goals!

If you're wondering what Cue, Routine, Reward is, think about rats in a maze. There's a cue (piece of cheese/placed into a maze), a routine (running through the maze), and finally a reward (eating the cheese). 

Popularized on the web and via many books many people think this is HOW one develops a habit. And it sounds logical — until you realize that in terms of intentional habit development, [C,R,R] is BACKWARDS looking. This is not a forward-thinking methodology.

Rather, The Habit Factor methodology teaches P.A.R.R.: Plan, Act, Record, Reassess, which takes advantage of our innate human ability to use INTENTION, to PLAN our actions. PARR reminds us that RECORDING (tracking) is a critical element for intentional, positive habit development. (see Ben's quote above!)

Listen in for an in-depth discussion on habit development via PARR, how Cue, Routine, Reward is sorely lacking, and why too many "self-help" materials get it wrong.

Enjoy the episode!

"Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right." ~Henry Ford

On this Frequently Asked Friday we ask the seemingly ominous-sounding question: Is it too late?

Too late for what? Too late to achieve our goals... too late to realize our ideal future.

Just as the great Henry Ford proffered in the quote above, it may depend on what you think

At 50, Ray Croc started the McDonalds juggernaut. Colonel Sanders was in his mid-60s when he sold his famed recipe and the KFC franchise was launched. The founder of Wal-Mart was 44 when he opened his first store. The examples go on and on.

The stories echo the same themes: Failure, rejection, success.

It may sound cliched, but it's important to realize that if it's been done before, we can do it too! Even if it hasn't been done before, we can do it! Recall the episode, Anyone Can Do It!

Listen in to be inspired to fight through repeated failure and rejection, become the person you are meant to be, and understand that it's never too late to go after your goals!

Enjoy the episode!
