"We know from a lot of research that when things get tough, the general rule is people actually tend to help people out...” ~Glenn R. Fox

Today's interview brings the return of Season 2, episode #12 guest Glenn R. Fox, head of Design, Strategy, and Outreach at USC Performance Science Institute. For more background on  Glenn, be sure to check out our prior interview.

The topic de jour is Covid-19 and the current pandemic, which sets the backdrop for a discussion about concepts such as optimism, gratitude, and purpose.

Glenn shares various insights based upon his and others' studies and research that suggests, for instance, the general trend in crises is for people to be kind and compassionate, and that optimistic people tend to be more realistic and cautionary.

Glenn leaves us with three real-life exercises we can practice in order to develop the skills that foster the powerful traits of purpose, optimism, and gratitude.

Enjoy the episode!

"Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” ~Viktor Frankl

This "tweener" Mind Bullet episode centers around how we respond to situations beyond our control—a fitting topic that comes during a time of great uncertainty throughout the world.

Last week we addressed the Covid-19 virus and the idea of timing, including how important it is to pause and reflect on how the environment can dictate our behavior. 

This week we expand on that idea, discussing the importance of our response to what's happening around us. Viktor Frankl's book, Man's Search for Meaning, shares many lessons to aid and guide our response to situations beyond our control. 

"Those who have a 'why' to live, can bear with almost any 'how'.”

In trying times, sometimes the one thing we can control is our response to what's happening. What attitude are you choosing? How are you going to respond? 

Listen in for more on challenging yourself when you can't change your situation, finding meaning and purpose no matter what happens, and choosing an attitude of positivity when faced with uncertainty.

Enjoy the episode!

"A rising tide lifts all boats."

This "tweener" Mind Bullet episode was going to be about accountability, coming on the heels of our recent episodes on self-mastery and justification. But as the world shifts its priorities in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Habits 2 Goals pivots its subject matter to the idea of TIMING.

In a time of understandable stress and panic, what we can do is be patient and focus on what we can control. 

Environmental factors can and will throw us off course as we pursue our goals, and that's OK. It's not always as overwhelming as a pandemic, but there are times that call for patience, as we wait for the environment to be supportive of what we're setting out to achieve.

As we respect and understand timing, we realize there are bigger, fundamental forces at play.

Listen in for more on how timing affects our lives and goal achievement, why we need to focus on what we can control, and how no storm lasts forever.

Enjoy the episode!

"Becoming aware of how you justify your actions will help you produce the results you want.

This in-between-seasons ("tweener") Mind Bullet episode was inspired by last week's episode on Self-Mastery as we dive into the idea of justifying our behavior.

We learned last week that "Habit is the most imperious of all masters," meaning it will dominate our lives, with or without our permission. The beauty is, we have the option of directing and guiding those habits, and this self-mastery is a lifelong process. 

This leads right into today's topic, which we first touched on in Season Two's episode, "Humans Are Justifying Creatures."

As justifying creatures, when we veer off course with our choices or behavior, we find a way to justify it. Breaking a diet? Well, it was a friend's birthday party, what could I do? Not exercising as you planned? It's raining out! 

No one wants to feel bad about themselves, so when we hit a challenge, give in to temptation, or make a mistake, it's easy to assign blame and make excuses. 

We all do this. The important thing is to become aware of justifying your behavior and choices. Listen to yourself as you spin your story. How many justifications are you making every day, particularly when it comes to sabotaging positive new habits and behaviors?

Listen in for more on justifying your behavior, becoming aware of the stories you create, and realizing how these justifications can derail you as you work toward your goals.

Enjoy the episode!

"Habit is the most imperious of all masters.
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

On this in-between-seasons ("tweener") Mind Bullet episode we examine a subject we've touched on but never fully explored: self-mastery.

Self-mastery is simply the ability to take control of your life without being blown off course. Your body is the servant and not your master

Self-mastery ties into the idea of challenge and change, a subject we've explored in depth. It's time to check the self-mastery meter and see how you're doing.

MG discusses how a short fast tested and challenged his personal self-mastery, leading to insights about just how in control we are over our impulses.

Self-mastery doesn't have to be about fasting or even food. Analyze your spectrum of behaviors, for example, spending vs. saving money, time spent on social media, playing online games etc. The key idea is to find ways in which you can test your own self-mastery and thereby develop self-discipline.

Listen in for more on self-mastery, how it ties into the intentional development of new habits, and how to build the habits that prove we are in control.

Enjoy the episode!
