“What if hell was the experience of meeting the person you could have become the moment before you die, and heaven was the same experience because you fulfilled your potential —or came close?"

Today’s Mind Bullet challenges us to reimagine a new and different concept of heaven and hell. MG's always recommending imagination exercises, so this one grabbed his attention.

Consider the best version of yourself—the ultimate person you ever could become. Whether or not you actually get there is beside the point; the pursuit is the success. In fact, this, arguably, is what the Habit Factor is all about: the pursuit of idealization (see our episode devoted to idealization).

How do you match up with your ideal version?

How have your habits matched up with that fully idealized future self?

It doesn’t matter if you’re not there yet, or not even close. You have the power to pivot, change direction, forge new habits, and continue pursuing the future of your dreams.

This mental exercise is an excellent wake-up call for all of us, forcing us to reevaluate our idealization checklist, taking stock of our mind, body, spirit, and social wellness, as well as our emotional, professional, lifestyle, and financial goals.

Where are you now? Where do you need to focus and improve?

Listen in for more on meeting your ideal future self; why the effort and pursuit of idealization are key, even if we don’t get there; and figuring out what habits we need to align to our goals to head in the right direction.

Enjoy the episode!

“If you had a $10 million racehorse, how would you treat it?"

Today's Mind Bullet exposes a basic truth about you and your place in the world.

Each of us has been given a $10 million racehorse, and that very gift begs us to ask this simple question: "How are you going to treat this expensive thoroughbred?"

Quick contemplation should lead you to one answer: VERY WELL. In other words, you'll ensure it gets the proper nutrition and enjoys ample exercise and sleep. In short, you're going to make absolutely certain its wellness habits are in order.

The punchline is this: YOU ARE THE PRICELESS THOROUGHBRED.

Building on an old story Zig Ziglar used to share, MG reiterates this message.

Whether you feel like a $10 million thoroughbred or not, you are! And NOW—this moment—is the only time that really matters to make the choices that support this truth!

Enjoy the episode!

“Balance is key. Balance good, karate good. Everything good. Balance bad; better pack up, go home.” ~Mr. Miyagi (Karate Kid)

Today’s Mind Bullet explores the monster concept of BALANCE.

Balance may be one of the most misunderstood life principles, yet it is a master key to an effective life. Thus, Mr. Miyagi nailed it when he said, "Balance bad; better pack up and go home. Understand?"

The first core principle is that balance is NOT something you should ignore, and it isn't a MYTH, as many "gurus" proclaim.

Balance is a very real and inescapable concept and principle essential to understand for one's general wellness.

The first core idea is that balance is less about a moment in time and much more about a process—it's about adjustments.

Thus, the feeling at any one moment in time that you are off-balance is actually a positive signal, guiding you to make adjustments.

Einstein put it brilliantly when he said, "Balance is like riding a bicycle; in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving."

Consider the tightrope walker: At any moment in time, she appears OFF balance, yet she arrives at the end of the rope because of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of tiny adjustments along the way.

“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”
~Abraham Lincoln

Today’s Mind Bullet explores the famous Abraham Lincoln quote above, and like many of our mind bullets, we'll tackle it from a few different angles.

In The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, the late, great Stephen Covey uses the above quote as part of the 7th habit, “Sharpen the Saw.” Sharpening the saw, (or axe), is about refreshing ourselves and making ourselves better. (Check out our Automaticity and Learning episodes for more on this idea.)

Learning, working out, and taking care of ourselves are examples of sharpening the saw. Anything we do to better ourselves improves our efficiency and our effectiveness.

When you devote time to your energy, your energy gives you back time.

Effectiveness is doing the right things. Efficiency is doing them correctly. Little point in being efficient if we aren’t first effective.

Listen in for more on sharpening the axe and saw to make yourself more efficient and effective.

Enjoy the episode!

“A ship is safe in the harbor, but that’s not what ships are built for.” – William Shedd

Today’s MBM is a quick hitter that ponders the topic of motivation. What is it that REALLY gets us moving, helping us to take action and gain momentum toward our goals?

We've hit this topic from many angles in the past, for example, asking ourselves WHY we seek out a goal, but the real litmus test is emotion.

Think about a situation that riles your emotions. For example, what if you’re in a restaurant with poor food and service. You’ll be motivated to take action—leave, consult a manager, etc.

We take action when we're emotionally charged, and we can use this type of passion to motivate ourselves enough to get moving toward a goal.

We often THINK we want to do something. We think there's a goal and a desire, but nothing truly changes because we’re lacking the emotional spark. Years can go by with a vague desire in the back of our minds, but no real emotional catalyst.

Think about a habit you’re trying to create or a goal you’re trying to manifest. Is it emotionally charged? Is there a good WHY or story that sparks your movement and momentum?

Until you actually start on your goal-achievement or habit-tracking journey, you can’t gain momentum. And you can’t start until you find an emotional impetus.

For example, years ago, MG was able to take action on a meaningful goal when he imagined the concept of his own demise. What would he regret if time was up? This story charged him, finally helping him take meaningful action toward his goal.

Listen in for more on finding the emotional spark that will propel you to start on your goal-achievement journey, determining what you NEED in order to get emotionally charged, and how to push out of your comfort zone to grow into your potential.

Enjoy the episode!
