"If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster."
~Clint Eastwood

Humans love guarantees.

Yet, when it comes to goal achievement, finding a guarantee is nearly impossible. Goal achievement is far less about guarantees and much more about probabilities.

Nobody is guaranteed to achieve the life of their dreams. They are, however, FAR more likely to achieve such a life by aiming for clear goals and ideals.

In a world short of guarantees, we enhance our odds of success by establishing a great plan (strategy); tracking core, essential behaviors aligned with our goals; and having a clear picture of the ideal outcome.

Imagine being blindfolded and trying to throw a dart at a dartboard's bullseye. What's the probability of hitting the bullseye when you don't even know where the dartboard is?

With no vision, and no target to aim for, the likelihood that you'll hit your target is close to zero.

Now, take off the blindfold, aim at the bullseye, and practice each and every day. What's the likelihood you'll end up hitting the bullseye, someday?

It's time to take off the blindfold, set clear goals and ideals, and work toward our targets.

Enjoy the episode!

Why do we construct so many obstacles in our lives?

Have you constructed anything lately?

Constructs are anything that you create—manufacture—within your life.

The "interesting" thing is that even our thoughts are constructs; that is a very important awareness.

Last week, we reviewed the concept that the best way for anyone to get out of a hole is to stop digging. The "digging" is our habitual behavior that put us in the "hole" (an undesirable position) in the first place. (Stop Digging!)

In this episode, we acknowledge that many of the holes we may find ourselves in have been created by our own thinking.

A key reason for constructing anything ought to be to facilitate our lives, not to make them more difficult. Yet, how often do we construct thoughts and stories that are self-defeating and do not serve our goals and ideals?

Rather than constructing thoughts that are beneficial and supportive, we create barriers—obstacles—that make our goals and ideals even harder to achieve!

So, how aware are you of the thoughts and stories you construct each and every day? Are you building bridges or barriers to your goals and ideals?

Enjoy the episode!

"The first law of holes: If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging."

Are you in a hole? A hole is simply a metaphor for a situation or circumstance you'd prefer not to be in.

There is an old adage, sometimes referred to as the "first law of holes," which states: "If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging."

Too much debt? Out of shape or overweight? Poor relationships? Drinking too much alcohol, etc.? Any of these situations could be considered "holes" in which you may find yourself standing.

You probably get the picture—and that picture should be of you, standing at least waist deep, in a hole!

Here are a few key questions: 

Are you still shoveling?

Why are you still shoveling?

What is it going to take to stop the shoveling?

Do you continue to spend on credit? Dig!

Maybe you continue to eat unhealthy foods! Dig!

Perhaps you continue to say the wrong things. Dig!

Time to assess your results. Are you standing in any holes?

Are there any situations you've created that you'd like to get out of?

Ask yourself what habit you may need to cease right away—TO STOP THE DIGGING—so you can begin the process of bettering your situation today!

Enjoy the episode!

"By immersing yourself into a new, different, and challenging environments, the last thing you'll be able to do is feel depressed or sorry for yourself."

MG invites Jen back on to discuss this week's Mind-Bullet, "Immersion."

By definition, to immerse yourself means to involve yourself deeply into a particular activity or interest.

In a recent interview with a fitness expert who had suffered a lot of personal trauma in his youth, he mentioned how immersing himself into new activities, such as kitesurfing, helps him to avoid getting depressed or even making poor decisions and even creating bad habits.

By changing his immediate environment and immersing himself into the unknown, he had no time to let his mind get away from him. By immersing himself in unfamiliar environments, all his senses are engaged, and his complete concentration and focus is required.

Next time you feel depressed or off balance, consider how you might immerse yourself into a new, different, or unique environment, which is likely to consume your attention and focus it toward a new, favorable direction!

Enjoy the episode!

"Unhappiness is tied to a feeling of not being in control. By establishing small wins each day you not only feel happier, you move you closer to your goals!"

MG invites Jen back on H2G to discuss this week's Mind-Bullet, "Small Wins", a different spin on the importance of self-efficacy, the ability to produce a desired result.

Coming off last weeks episode, "Intentionality" we know humans are goal-achievement machines. Thus, they must be setting goals.

The key to bridging the gap, going from point "A" to point "B" is to compile small wins as often as possible along the way.

This is precisely why tracking habits that are aligned with your goals is so effective. Each time you tick-off a habit, you feel as though you've inched closer to your goal and you demonstrate self-efficacy—the ability to produce a desired result!

Thus, pilling up small wins provides a sense of purpose as well as a feeling of control. Two important aspects that influence your ongoing effectiveness and overall happiness!

Enjoy the show!
