"If Artificial Intelligence (AI) is goal-directed behavior, then setting meaningful and worthwhile goals is a true sign of real intelligence."

Henry J. Evans joins Habits2Goals to pick up where last week's episode, Goal-Setting 101, left off, continuing our discussion of the massive topic of goal-setting

Last week we discussed the what, why, and how of goal-setting, among other things learning why SMART goals aren't smart, how to become the best version yourself that you can imagine, how to stay motivated, and how habits and tracking are game-changers when you're creating your own vision of yourself. 

This week, we look at the importance of setting goals, managing the inevitable setbacks that come with goal setting, how accountability plays a role, and why tracking habits is the magic secret sauce in goal achievement.

Listen in to hear more on why goal-directed behavior is the very definition of intelligence, why goals are mostly about your capacity to set the goal and go after it, how tracking is key, and much more.

Enjoy the episode!

"If everything is energy—and it is—what do you think happens when you flap your gums?

Today's Mind Bullet is a bit brutal but necessary: Shut Your Freaking Mouth! In other words, silence

We talked about this idea in a blog post called "Shut Your Pie Hole," discussing oversharing as a personal development hurdle, and it is eloquently explained in this TED Talk: Derek Sivers, Keep Your Goals to Yourself.

This MBM was sparked by a Facebook post by someone who continually complains. When good things happen, such as finally getting a new job, there's yet more griping and rambling about downsides, even on day one. 

Their story is on repeat; it's habitual complaining. Where's the gratitude? Where's the personal responsibility? So shut up

It's not just about constant complainers. We lose focus and dissipate our energy every time we mindlessly overshare, especially when it comes to goals. 

Sometimes it seems like everyone needs to tweet or express publicly whatever sound bite is in their head. Keeping quiet and storing this energy is more powerful and even helps to generate creativity. 

Listen in to hear more about collecting and processing your thoughts rather than spewing them, how your thoughts can become potential or kinetic energy, and the power of storing information to fuel creativity.

"Where there is hope in the future, there is happiness in the present.”

On this Frequently Asked Friday, we tackle the question: Where can I find hope?

In our recent How Can I Stay Motivated? episode, we discussed failure as a stepping stone to success, not the opposite of success. In fact, the opposite of success might be hopelessness, because, without hope, there's no opportunity to create our ideal future.

Temporary feelings of hopelessness and sadness are normal, but persistent hopelessness is dangerous. Hope means there's opportunity in the future, and since no one knows what the future truly holds, we are free to use hope to craft and believe in a better future.

While creating a great future takes vision, goals, faith, and belief, it all begins with an understanding of hope. Where there is hope in the future, there is happiness in the present. 

Listen in for more on holding onto hope; using a hopeful future to drive today's happiness; and how to manufacture hope through goals, heroes, and even books.

Enjoy the episode!

"Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal.” ~Earl Nightingale

Today's episode brings back legendary former co-host Henry J. Evans—a dynamic marketing expert, best-selling author, speaker, and consultant—for an important introduction to goal-setting.

Habits2Goals exists to help listeners learn to set and achieve goals, supported by habits, and live life to their full potential. But it's important to take it back to the beginning for a refresher on just HOW to set goals in the first place—and why it's so critical.

Goals can be as broad as your overall life purpose or as minute as what you're doing right now, today, and setting goals requires an understanding of your own values.

The first step, as MG calls it, is "beginning with the end in mind." Project yourself 5, 10, 20 years down the road. Who is that person? What habits do they have? Are you proud to be this person? What do you want to be like and how do you want to be? Then you can go about building that person from the ground up.

Next comes finding your WHY—tapping into that burning desire for your goal's fulfillment. When you tie your goal to your biggest desire—your why—you can find the strength to power through when the inevitable obstacles occur. Without enough desire or a big enough why, any excuse is enough to quit.

Listen in to hear the rest of the Goal-Setting 101 steps and learn why SMART goals aren't' smart, how to become the best version yourself that you can imagine, how to stay motivated, and how habits and tracking are game-changers when you're creating your own vision of yourself. 

Enjoy the episode!

"I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself." Maya Angelou

Today's Mind Bullet once again digs into the root of a word to find more understanding. This time, we look at the word belonging.  

A Facebook post is the genesis of this episode. A friend shared a post on a military veteran's experience of belonging and how finding that sense of belonging post-service was a difficult search. 

The first definition of "belong" is to possess something. The second is to be a member or part of a particular group. Think about that first definition when you find yourself searching for that sense of belonging. Perhaps that journey should start inside and become something you possess rather than something you seek.

Listen in to hear more about the idea of belonging, possessing an internal sense of belonging before trying to find it outside, and how belonging, just like everything else, begins with you.

"There is no way to happiness; happiness is the way.” ~Buddha

On this Frequently Asked Friday we tackle the massive idea of happiness once again.

In season 4 we addressed the topic "How Can I Be Happy?" toward people fighting through depression and sadness. Today, however, we explore the question, "What Are the Keys to Happiness?"

A paradigm-shifting concept is simply to choose happiness. The idea of happiness as a choice goes back thousands of years, and yet too many of us expect perfect circumstances to bring us happiness.

To achieve happiness, your basic circumstantial needs (food, shelter) must be met. Taking care of our bodies is vital, as our energy relies on health and wellness. 

Optimizing your environment influences your happiness. Surround yourself with positivity to set yourself up for success at choosing happiness.

Importantly, goal achievement via habit tracking—along with the right mindset—is a critical element of happiness.

Listen in for more on about making happiness a choice, setting yourself up for happiness by controlling your environment, and how gratitude is necessary to create and cultivate the happiness habit.

Enjoy the episode!

"Put yourself in the shoes of others and make it part of your core values; it's the basis of customer-centered ideology.” ~Paul Reynolds

This week's Habits2Goals interview spotlights a phenomenal CEO and entrepreneur, Paul Reynolds, whose business insights come fast and furious.

Paul is a lifelong entrepreneur and the CEO of EasiHair Pro, a leader in the hair extension industry that utilizes a revolutionary tape-in method.

Growing up in Capetown, South Africa, with an entrepreneurial father, Paul learned the value of both hard work and taking time to enjoy life. He immigrated to the U.S. with his family, attended San Diego State University, and dreamed of owning his own business. His father steered him toward an accounting career to prepare him for the rigors and challenges of entrepreneurship, and while he enjoyed the work, he yearned for the freedom of working for himself.

He figured out that "niches bring riches" and was inspired by his father's wig business to found EasiHair. Wigs were a niche, and hair extensions were a niche, and digging deeper, he realized a new, innovative form of hair extensions would be a profitable untapped niche. He was right, and his venture evolved into EasiHair Pro. 

In the process, he learned valuable lessons about learning what you truly need instead of what you think you need—knowledge that informed his core business values and direction.

Listen in for a unique perspective on growing a business by identifying a niche, the importance of relationships and values in business, creating a customer-centered ideology, and understanding why slow is sometimes fast. 

Enjoy the episode!

"Being 'lost' isn't as much about not knowing where you are as much as it is about knowing where you want to go.

Today's Mind Bullet stems from a reader's feedback, appreciating the way we dig into the etymology of a word to extract its true meaning and look at it in a new light. We did this with our Quest episode, and today we put the spotlight on the word lost.

First, why do we do this? A Zen quote says, "To the beginner all things are possible, and to the expert few things are possible." When we keep a growth mindset—a beginner's mind—we find ourselves always open to learning. Too often we close ourselves off to learning with our preconceived notions. 

Take the word lost. The definition of lost is, "Unable to find one's way; not knowing one's whereabouts." We usually default to the second understanding of lost—not knowing one's whereabouts. But the first part of the definition is critical when we're trying to move on from our own feelings of being lost.

We've all said it and felt it: "I feel lost." But it's not about not knowing our whereabouts; it's about knowing what to do. When you're unable to find your way, what you need is a direction, goal, or vision. Being lost isn't about where you are; it's about where you want to go.

Listen in to hear more about finding your way when you feel lost, evaluating what you really want in life, and how having a direction takes you from being lost to finding your right path.

"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” ~Thomas Edison

Today's Frequently Asked Friday is deceptively straightforward: How can you stay motivated after repeated failures?

First, let's get a "right perspective" on failure. Is failure the opposite of success? Absolutely not! Anyone who has ever succeeded has failed along the way.

Think about Thomas Edison and his fabled 10,000 failures before he refined and invented the lightbulb. Was he wondering how to stay motivated? No! Every time he failed, he felt one step closer to success.

Whether in business or any area of life, "failure" isn't the opposite of success. Failure means energy and effort was put toward a goal, so the experience is valuable. The real danger is hopelessness.

But what about motivation? Think about your motive. As Tony Robbins said, "If you have a big enough why, you can always find the how."

Listen in to hear about using failure as a stepping stone to success, figuring out if your why is powerful enough, and how to adapt when your goal needs some recalibrating.

Enjoy the episode!

"I learned early on that I couldn’t control what happened to me, but I could control what I did about it.” ~Shay Eskew

Habits2Goals is proud to present a powerful interview with best-selling author, motivational speaker, Ironman, and fellow Rim-to-Rim-to-Rim adventurer Shay Eskew. 

Shay's story is inspiring and motivating, showing that self-made success is possible despite overwhelming obstacles.

At the age of 8, a neighbor's child accidentally set Shay on fire. Shay saved the life of his 7-year-old friend and suffered burns on more than 65 percent of his body. 

Despite being told he'd never play sports again—and enduring more than 35 surgeries over the last 36 years—Shay is a four-time Ironman, member of Team USA, and 25-time Ironman 70.3 athlete. He is ranked in the top 1 percent of Ironman athletes worldwide and has competed in 11 Triathlon World Championships in seven countries on four continents.  

Shay shares his gut-wrenching fight to rise above his injuries and reclaim his life, and how he rose above countless setbacks and difficulties.

Listen in for a riveting discussion of one man's inspiring journey, and how we all can turn our greatest tragedies into our greatest blessings if we have the faith to stay the course.

Enjoy the episode!

**Shay credits the Shriners Hospital in Cincinnati for saving his life and raises funds for the organization.

"Practice isn't the thing you do once you're good. It's the thing you do that makes you good." ~Malcolm Gladwell

Today's Mind Bullet revolves around a famous success tenet that, when you look deeper, simply reflects the magic of The Habit Factor: The 10,000-hour rule

The 10,000-hour rule was made famous in Malcolm Gladwell's book Outliers, which discusses the outlier-type variables that influence success, for example when you were born. 

10,000 hours spent practicing a skill. This rings a bell. What is created when you do something over and over again until you become unconsciously proficient? That's right! A habit!

In Outliers, while Gladwell points out the seemingly random occurrences that contribute to success, he discusses one consistent success factor that holds true across all instances: the 10,000 rule. That is, practicing a specific task that can be accomplished with 20 hours of work a week for 10 years, leading to otherworldly proficiency.

Tune in for more on Gladwell's 10,000-hour rule, the one great constant among extreme success stories, and how the Habit Factor compounds supportive behaviors to carry us automatically toward our goals.

"Good habits happen when planned; bad habits happen on their own." ~Grunburg

This Frequently Asked Friday throws it back to a core concept: How long does it take to develop a good habit?

(For more on this topic, check out Season 4's What Is Habitstrength? and What's the Best Way to Build a Good Habit?, and Season 2's How Long Does it Really Take to Build a Good Habit?)

Building a good habit DOESN'T take a week, or 14 days, or the mythical 21 days some like to tout. The 21-day myth, in particular, gained traction thanks to its inclusion in Psycho-Cybernetics, by Dr. Maxwell Maltz, who said, "It usually requires a minimum of about 21 days to effect any perceptible change in a mental image.” 

Newer research actually points to 66 days to create a habit, but even this isn't a fixed number. What's critical is hitting all three major components to building a habit (according to Stephen Covey in his 7 Habits of Highly Successful People): desire, knowledge, skill—or as we've tweaked the formula, the capacity to do the work.

Listen in to learn how PARR is the framework for creating a good new habit, what elements must be present, how the Habit Factor methodology breaks through all the myths, and how long it REALLY takes to build a good new habit.   

Enjoy the episode!

"What makes us weird also makes us wonderful. What makes us weak also makes us strong." ~David Rendall

Habits2Goals is proud to welcome a true "freak," professional speaker, bestselling author, Ph.D., and fellow Rim-to-Rim-to-Rim adventurer David Rendall. 

Growing up, David was told he’d never be successful because he didn’t fit the mold— he couldn’t sit still, he talked too much, and he didn’t listen. He tried to conform to the norm and even pursued a career in counseling psychology. But he ended up unhappy, unsuccessful, and never actually worked in his "chosen" field.

Known as "the Freak," David realized that his supposed flaws were actually strengths. Even the term "freak" has two meanings — someone who is different and perceived in a negative light, or someone who is different and admired (think Giannis Antetokounmpo, the "Greek Freak"). 

The kid who was criticized for talking too much now speaks for a living, teaching revelatory management practices to get the most out of employees by embracing their unique differences and celebrating their flaws.

Listen in to hear more about a transformational philosophy that embraces flaws and frees talented individuals from the constraints of conforming to what's "normal." 

Enjoy the episode!
