"Use mindful, intentional, thought to forge the habits that will then serve you subconsciously.”  

Today's Frequently Asked Friday (FAF) addresses a common question and a confusing concept: What role does habit play in mindfulness?

This question sprang from an offhand comment by a "thought leader": "I don't believe in habit, I believe in mindfulness."

First of all, this falls into the trap of dichotomous thinking. Of course, it doesn't have to be mindfulness OR habit. It's both.

So if the goal is to be always mindful, where does habit come into play? Habit is an incredible tool to help us accomplish more because it lets us expend less energy.

We use mindful, intentional, thinking to forge habits that will then serve us in a subconsious, autopilot process. 

Listen in for more on the mindfulness-habit connection, why it doesn't have to be one or the other, and how to develop skills and habits that serve you mindfully.

Enjoy the episode!

"Begin with a grit mindset that constitutes healthy habits of thought.

Episode #5,  the final chapter of our 2020 Vision & Wellness series, is all about mindset. Mindset is critical because it's your mindset that will help you recalibrate when obstacles throw you off track. 

Just as we have behavior habits, we also have thought habits. We rehash the same thoughts from one day to the next, and this begins with our identity. Are you someone who gives up when things get tough? Or are you someone who will fight through no matter what?  

A mindset that knows you WILL achieve—and will find a way—is the first step toward reaching your goals. 

The foundational mindset habits that comprise grit are also critical to success, including having a vision, being hopeful, staying patient, working SMART and HARD, reframing rejection, fostering resilience, and being persistent. 

Listen in for more on being aware of your habitual patterns of thought, controlling WHO controls your thinking, creating a mentally tough mindset, and finding true wisdom through experience and reflection.

Enjoy the episode!

"Bring your energy to the here and now.” ~Roz Savage

For this Mind Bullet Monday, we explore the idea of taking things one stroke at a time.

A little backstory: Eco-activist Roz Savage wrote the foreword for The Habit Factor after using the app to reach her goal of rowing across the Atlantic Ocean (she subsequently rowed across the Indian and Pacific Oceans, as well). 

When discussing with a friend how someone can tackle the enormous task of rowing across an ocean, the answer was readily apparent: one stroke at a time. This idea has ramifications throughout life and its challenges.

Roz writes about the overwhelming obstacles she faced in her Atlantic journey and being flooded with despair—until she decided to regain her focus, take control of the here and now, and inch closer to her goal by focusing on the process.

Listen in to hear more about the idea of tackling challenges one stroke at a time, how Roz Savage regained focused on her goal, and how we can all learn the lessons of overcoming the obstacles of life one stroke at a time.

Enjoy the episode!

"Many successful people get up before 6 am in the morning. They have rituals. They exercise, stretch, organize their day, and walk through that series of rituals.”  ~Brian Tracy

Today's Frequently Asked Friday (FAF) tackles a basic yet important question: What's the difference between habits and rituals?

A ritual is simply a series of habits. For example, your morning ritual may consist of healthy habits such as brushing your teeth, exercising, meditating, and eating breakfast. 

Another more subtle distinction: Rituals involve a spiritual quality. Habits don't often get credit for spirituality, but they too have a spiritual component—after all, there's nothing more spiritual than the evolution and growth of your character.

Listen in for more on the differences between rituals and habits, how the two are interlinked, and how the first hour of the day is a powerful time to create a wellness ritual.

Enjoy the episode!

"If you're not tracking you're slacking!

Episode #4 in our 2020 Vision & Wellness series brings us to the all-important concept of tracking our behaviors to form good, supportive habits of our goals!

After many thought exercises in the first three episodes, we find ourselves here, diving into the mechanism that bridges the gap - from vision to reality.

In this episode, MG shares a handful of reasons to track your habits. 1) It enhances one's belief and drives momentum, 2) it improves one's focus and concentration and, 3) it helps you to stay on track/get back on track as well as creates efficacy.

Finally, MG challenges the listener to add a secondary, physical goal to fuel better energy, health, and wellness.

New listeners are encouraged to follow the P.A.R.R. method to track and develop new habits (Plan, Act, Record & Reassess) and to visit http://thehabitfactor.com/templates where they can download the free habits and goals tracking template.

Be sure to subscribe as we head into week #5 of our 2020 Vision and Wellness series to help ensure you stay on track for your best year ever!

Enjoy the episode!

"Practice!? You talking about Practice!?”
~Allen Iverson

In today's MBM, yes, we're talking about PRACTICE!

Practice, the art of strengthening a habit or skill is in itself, an overlooked skill. The question for you is, "What are you practicing today?"

Practice precedes results in all areas of our lives. The more often and better we practice with intention, the better our results.

The problem is so many people think of "practice" as something that applies only to professional athletes.

What could you begin to practice today to improve the results in those areas that are important to you?

A few examples of skills/habits to practice; saving money, breathing, stretching, drinking water, exercising, just to name a few. The beauty for long-time habit factor users is the process to improve one's practice habit follows the very same principles within P.A.R.R.; Plan, Act, Record & Reassess!

Listen in to hear more about the significance of incorporating a mindset of daily practice to produce the results you want!

Enjoy the episode!

BTW: Check out the Allen Iverson Video referenced, here.

"Worrying is like paying interest on a loan that may never come due."

Today's Frequently Asked Friday (FAF) attempts to grapple the all-to-common problem over chronic worrying.

It makes sense to worry, right? Pick your topic; government, climate, work, the economy, family, friends, etc. The list of valid things to worry about is endless.

The reality though is worrying about things we can't control or influence is a waste of precious time and valuable energy. Further, it's bad for one's health. Too much worrying and we'll head to an early grave.

Rephrasing a classic Plato quote MG offers this: "There are two things you should never worry about, those things you can help and those things you cannot help."

Finally, MG suggests a simple hack to thwart the worry habit for good by using each worry thought as a trigger to develop the gratitude habit!

Enjoy the episode!

"The wave of change is coming. It's time to get on your 'New Habits' surfboard and surf with intention.

With the New Year comes a great opportunity to leverage the air of change and harness the force of habit for our benefit. This five-part Vision & Wellness series is designed to help you do just that!

Today's episode, Part 4, is all about the great constant of CHANGE!

Some of us hate change, and some of us never think things will change, yet the truth is everything is undergoing constant transformation. Take a look at a picture of yourself when you were just 10 years old. Is that really you?

For many, such a reminder provides hope: The past doesn't determine the future, but the new habits and goals we set today (now) can.

Today's exercises ask us to reflect upon our strengths and weaknesses and identify where we can put our attention and intention to forge new habits.

Make sure you're subscribed as we get into part four of this powerful series to help you jump-start your 2020 to be your best year ever!

Enjoy the episode!

"You become what you think about all day long.” ~RW Emerson

Where your attention goes, new habits and skills are developed. Obsession, by definition, is "an idea or thought that constantly preoccupies one's mind." 

Obsession is arguably your greatest ally when it comes to goal achievement, as well as skill and habit development.

Obsession is simply Desire 10.0. The question for you is, "What are you obsessed with?" What preoccupies your mind?

When your desire for "IT" is so great that you wake up with "it" first thing, and it's the last thing you think of before you go to bed, then you will know your desire is sufficient.

MG uses the example of writing both The Habit Factor® and The Pressure Paradox™. Each was years in the making, and during those years, MG was obsessed with these ideas — the concepts of HABIT and PRESSURE. Further, that obsession, he suggests, is what helps to inspire creativity via the subconscious mind!

Listen in to hear the other four, key steps in the process of making feeling overwhelmed a thing of the past.

Enjoy the episode!

"A wise man rules his habits, a fool obeys them."

Today's Frequently Asked Friday (FAF) poses a classic question:  "How can habits help me achieve my goals?" This may be one of the most basic and fundamental concepts of the entire Habit Factor® ecosystem.

First, the subject of habit is often confusing. Most people, sadly, only associate the word habit with negative actions, such as smoking, drinking, biting fingernails, doing drugs, etc.

But habits are a force of energy and an incredibly efficient way to apply your behavior energy to help you move forward toward your goals more quickly and easily. 

The Habit Factor teaches us to identify, craft, and implement habits that are essential to our goals. An author develops the habit of writing; a runner develops the habit of running. Someone on a health and fitness quest would craft habits of exercise, eating well, drinking water, etc. 

Listen in for more on aligning habits to your goals, how following P.A.R.R. increases habitstrength incrementally over time, and how you can reduce overthinking and better manage your thoughts to direct your energy in a positive direction.

Enjoy the episode!

"The Habit Factor is always, always working! The question is, is it working for you or against you?” 

With the New Year comes this five-part series to be released each Wednesday in January: 2020 Vision & Wellness.

Today's episode helps us to step back, assess our current results, and then ask a few key questions with the understanding that what we've done in the past has led us to the present. Thus, the new habits that we begin to cultivate today will lead us to be better tomorrow!

This week's exercises build upon the clarity developed in the last episode. If you haven't listened to last week's episode on clarity and done that homework, stop, and go listen to that episode first. These episodes are designed to be consumed in chronological order.

Today's exercises have us reflect upon the past, assess our current results, and ask some simple yet powerful questions: "What's working?" "What's not working?" "What habits should I begin to develop?" "What habits should I quit?" And, finally, "What should I be doing more of/less of?"

Check out part two of this powerful series to jumpstart your 2020 to be your best year ever!

Enjoy the episode!

"The man who moves mountains begins by carrying small stones.” ~Confucius

Overwhelm by definition is to "bury or drown by a large mass". This is a topic we covered in Season 3, episode 10 when Martin invited Cathey Fisher to join H2G to share her experience with The Habit Factor and discuss the topic of being overwhelmed.

Cathey and Martin review the Focus & Discipline webinar where the topic came up in the Q&A.

In this episode, MG dishes out a five-part recipe regarding exactly how to address the feeling of overwhelm which begins with getting crystal clear on identifying the PRIORITY— what to address first. Loosely defined, a priority is one thing of great importance above all others. 

Listen in to hear the other four, key steps in the process to  make feeling overwhelmed a thing of the past.

Enjoy the episode!

"A miracle is an event so unlikely as to be nearly impossible. It's probably worth reminding you right now that the probability of your existence is estimated to be 1 in 400 trillion."

Today's Frequently Asked Friday (FAF), "How can I stop overthinking?" is the natural follow-up to Monday's Mind-Bullet, Overthinking.

When it comes to our goals and ambitions, chances are good  that overthinking is keeping us from even getting out of the gate!

Overthinking is typically just a disguise for a lack of confidence. The key to gaining confidence is to take action! Small steps toward your goal—tracking your habits, for example—following P.A.R.R. is a sure way to gain confidence.

We can also stop overthinking by asking questions and challenging our perspective.  One of the best ways to reduce overthinking is to slow down, stop, and manage our thoughts better. One of the very best ways to do this is to begin a meditation practice.

Listen in for more on why overthinking need not be a hurdle you create for yourself and learn more techniques to diminish its negative presence in your life.

Enjoy the episode!

"Don't die with your music still in you.” ~Dr. Wayne Dyer

With the New Year comes a five-part series to be released each Wednesday in January: 2020 Vision & Wellness.

Today's episode helps us to get clear about our goals and ambitions for the new year. We "begin with the end in mind", by identifying what we want to create in 2020 and beyond.

To do this we review several vision and clarity exercises and Stephen Covey's, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People to underscore the importance of clarity.

MG shares the experience that was responsible for him to take action toward his most important goal (after wasting so many years) claims the same exercises are responsible for the creation of the book, app and podcast.

Finally, with the theme of wellness, he urges listeners to consider challenging themselves physically in the new year which is likely to help them grow mentally and emotionally as well.

Listen to the first part of the series and find out how you can propel yourself to get a great jumpstart into the new year!

Enjoy the episode!
