"If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration." ~Nikola Tesla

"We cannot create or destroy energy, it simply transforms."
~Albert Einstein


Today's Mind Bullet topic is a big one that ties into our fascination with ENERGY: entropy

The first law of thermodynamics is the idea that the energy cannot be created or destroyed in an isolated system.

The second law of thermodynamics is entropy — within a system, disorder is always increasing. 

We see entropy all around us in our chaotic, daily lives, as things break down, get rebuilt, and break down again. We see entropy in action as we age, watching our own bodies break down. In fact, perhaps nothing illuminates time itself as a forward motion better than entropy. You never see things un-break unless you are watching a film in reverse!

Fighting entropy has spawned untold businesses. Think of the tidying up empire Marie Kondo has built based solely on reducing the chaos of clutter in our lives. Think of the success of 1-800-GOT-JUNK, which hauls some of our chaos away, leaving order for a time before entropy begins its creep once again. Consider the job of every auto mechanic!

Whether we know it or not, the pursuit to slow the entropy in our lives even our own minds — our thoughts, can bring us a sense of peace.

And what better way to fight entropy in our minds than meditation! Meditation is a concentration of energy, sitting quality and restoring balance. (Check out our interview with Fred Gratzon on the importance of meditation.)

Listen in for more on accepting the inevitability of entropy and using the power of meditation to refocus, sweeping away some of the chaos in your mind.

"You have to put in many, many, many tiny efforts that nobody sees or appreciates before you achieve anything worthwhile."
~Brian Tracy


Today's Mind Bullet is as big as they get combining many essential components within The Habit Factor: the overarching concept of Success.

What is success to you? What criteria would you ascribe to someone you deem to be successful? The great Brian Tracy, in his Psychology of Achievement, breaks down the criteria for success:

1. Peace of mind.

2. Health (energy, vibrancy).

3. Relationships (healthy, loving).

4. Financial freedom (free from money worry and stress).

5. The pursuit of worthy goals and ideas. This, of course, is what the Habit Factor process, awareness and methodology is all about! Goals and ideals, after all, are a byproduct of having a purpose and direction.

6. Self-actualization: the idea of becoming the most and best of what we can become -- and this only happens through the pursuits of worthy goals and ideas!

It's worth noting that all these criteria have a goal-achievement component, which The Habit Factor was designed to support and streamline, with categories that cover Mind, Body, Spiritual, Social, and more. 

Listen in for more on finding out what success means to you, and how the Habit Factor's methodology can help you build your own own well-rounded success. 

Enjoy the episode!

"Nobody improves the world without first improving themselves."

"If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you."

We've explored the subject of Challenge and Change twice before, once from the angle of MG's challenge journey and the perspective of "all life is an experiment," and once again to explore jumping into new challenges with a "now or never" attitude.

There isn't a topic as critical to The Habit Factor's fiber as challenge and change; The Habit Factor methodology is designed to guide you through your transformation on your way to your goals.

But the question still remains: Life is already hard enough. Why do we need to throw in a massive undertaking like an Ironman, a half-marathon, writing a book, or whatever monster goal you have hovering in the back of your mind?

One answer: It's because life itself is challenging, and change is a great constant that challenging ourselves with goals makes us stronger and more resilient. Challenges will always be present so who do you think is going to fare better? The person who's constantly giving herself challenges or the person always seeking comfort?

Here's another reason: We can either intentionally influence and direct the changes in our life or let life throw at us what it may. Why not put ourselves in the driver's seat?

And, finally, one more reason: When we direct our own change, we don't cling to the past. New challenges inspire us to keep evolving and reinventing ourselves.

Listen in for more inspiration on creating challenges to make yourself stronger, grittier and more resilient, and how the Habit Factor methodology can keep you going through life's inevitable attempts to derail you on the path to your goals. 

Enjoy the episode!

"Chess is life in miniature. Chess is struggle, chess is battles. ~Garry Kasparov” 

Last week we explored the topic of chess as a metaphor for the goal-achievement process, illustrating the strategic thinking, planning, defensive posturing and awareness you'll need on your goal achievement journey. 

This week, we look at the lessons of chess that come into play when problem-solving

At a Memorial Day barbecue, MG ran into an old friend with a complicated life -- running a business, handling a divorce, raising children and navigating a new relationship. When the topic turned to  his sailboat, on which he and his family loved to play games, MG asked, "How often do you play chess?" Without skipping a beat the friend responded, "'I'm playing chess every da." 

Without hearing the prior Chess podcast episode, he intuitively equated the complex game to the logic, strategy, vulnerability assessment, small victories and sacrifices required to navigate the challenges of day-to-day life. 

When facing problems in life, we often fall prey to dichotomous thinking -- the idea that things are black and white, this or that, one way or another. In truth, it usually doesn't have to be A or B -- there's a spectrum of possibilities along with the great variable of time to consider. It's about getting the "right view" of a situation before acting.

When you look at a chess board, the first thing you do is assess the situation and get the right view. You find where there are exposures and threats and then you identify opportunities. 

We all have problems and challenges, big and small, facing us. But just as in the game of chess, the spectrum of possible solutions opens up when you ask questions and look at all the variables. 

Listen in for a fascinating discussion of chess as a metaphor for problem-solving, winning small battles before bigger ones, understanding order and priority, knowing when to give a little and when to hold firm. 

Enjoy the episode!
