"Nobody can create their ideal future any faster than one day at a time."

We last covered "LOST" as a Mind-Bullet to underscore the concept that feeling "lost" is often far more about not knowing where you want to go and less about not knowing where you are.

Since life is highly dynamic, the experience of feeling "lost" is universal. In today's episode, we revisit the concept from the vantage point of two prior episodes: The QUEST and The PATH!

Once we subscribe to the idea that our great Quest is to create our ideal future, we can simply ask ourselves each night, before retiring: "Was I on the PATH today?

If intelligence is goal-directed behavior, then it's imperative to strive for the most important goals. Since few goals are more important than creating your ideal future, the sensation of being "LOST" confirms that you're not on the PATH.

The moral is clear: Being "LOST" may seem frustrating, but it's an important and valuable awareness that can lead you toward your ideal future.

Enjoy the episode!

"Is it really about what we go through, or is it about something else? I don't want to be the guy people look at and say, 'Wow, that poor guy, he's been through a lot.'" ~Ted Ryce

In this special episode of H2G, MG welcomes fitness expert Ted Ryce.

Ted, a long-time physical and personal transformation coach who used to work with a handful of celebrities in Miami, now fills his time traveling the world, running his personal transformation coaching business, and hosting his own very popular podcast, "The Legendary Life."

A great Japanese proverb states, "Adversity is the foundation of virtue."

Few will experience the tragic, life-altering challenges Ted Ryce had to endure. At the age of 19, his younger brother was kidnapped and murdered. Later, his mother would die in a tragic car accident, and his sister would commit suicide.

While Ted shares some of his best fitness, health, and well-being advice, he also shares many powerful life lessons.

Rather than breaking his will or character, Ted accepted the tragedies as circumstances beyond his control and decided he would put his time and attention upon those things he could control: working out, developing discipline, and mastering his mindset and character.

The tragedies Ted endured sent him on a personal development journey that forced him to strengthen his mind and body.

"My life story SUCKS! It kind of...really sucks...but I don’t feel that bad...Why are people who don’t have this shitty story feeling worse than me, and why are they struggling so much? Is it really about what we go through in life, or is it about something else?"

"I don't want to be the guy people look at and say, 'Wow, that poor guy, he's been through a lot. We all have the power to change ourselves...to change how we feel, to get rid of our stresses..."

Listen in to hear how Ted navigated his life's hardships and learn about the various mindsets and techniques he used to optimize his mind and body.

Enjoy the episode!

Q: How can I enjoy things I don't enjoy?

MG fields a question that stood out from a recent survey. Maria wondered how she might enjoy some of the things she really doesn't, namely her job.

MG recounts his experience – an early job out of college as a software support specialist. The only challenge? The job was never a challenge. MG was extremely bored by the work, which required no creativity. He was left feeling as though his contribution was insignificant.

To answer Maria's question, he takes two tacks. First, MG leans on a great quote by Dr. Wayne Dyer, "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."

While the job was not really enjoyable, MG shifted his perception to the assets the job provided: good pay and the ability to surf as often as he wanted. It also provided an opportunity to learn from a young millionaire software developer.

The second part of the solution was found in "The Great Eight that Separate," something Napoleon Hill used to talk about.

While anyone might be tied to a job they don't like for eight hours, and while everyone must sleep approximately eight hours for their well-being, there still remains another eight hours for anyone to pursue their ideal future.

By gleaning any assets he could from the job he didn't enjoy, and applying his time creatively toward his goals and ideals during "the other eight hours," he was able to move along the PATH on his QUEST.

The postscript is that a future company he would co-found ultimately proliferated and flourished because of the skills and knowledge he gained from the software support job he didn't enjoy very much.

Enjoy the episode!

"Feelings, and feelings and feelings. Let me try thinking instead." ~C.S. Lewis

As sentient beings, our feelings wield remarkable influence over our behaviors and, therefore, our lives.

As covered in a prior episode (Feelings and Focus), how well you concentrate and focus, at any given moment, is most often directly tied to your feelings.

Our ability to manage, channel, and master our emotions has a powerful effect on our ability to achieve our long-term goals—as well as guide new habit formation.

Today's episode offers a powerful reminder: What we do from one moment to the next, if we're not aware, is often guided by our feelings.

This understanding of feelings is both GOOD and BAD news.

The bad news: Behavior change and goal achievement efforts can be sabotaged for those who are unaware of their emotional states.

The good news is actually two-fold. First, feelings are ephemeral—they do not last very long. Secondly, with practice, we have the ability to master and channel our feelings to empower our behavior change and goal achievement efforts.

By managing the stories we tell ourselves at any given moment, we can alter our feelings about nearly any behavior change effort.

By asking a few critical questions, you can better guide your emotions to support and align your behaviors to your goals.

Questions to ask habitually:

1) How do I feel right now? Do I think I can modify that feeling by changing my environment and/or revisiting the story I'm telling myself?

2) How do I feel about the behavior/habit I'm planning to track?

3) Does the effort inspire me, or is it dreadful?

4) What story could I tell myself about the successful outcome of my goal or behavior change effort to fully inspire my emotions to take positive action?

The beauty is, by following The Habit Factor's P.A.R.R. methodology for habit development, you already have a PLAN in place and "Target Days" set for tracking new habits.

This alone has the ability to minimize unfavorable feelings that may not be supporting your habit change efforts.

By Planning, Acting, Recording, and Reassessing the core, related behaviors (habits), you also begin to align your emotions with your most important goals.

Enjoy the episode!

"If you fail to plan, are you planning to fail?" ~Benjamin Franklin

As we continue The Quest—the pursuit of our ideal future—we recognize the journey requires that we step onto The Path! (previous episode)

Once on The Path, we notice a powerful truth: Our ideal future only arrives ONE DAY AT A TIME. Thus, the essential question to ask daily is, "Was I on the path, today?"

To make real progress along The Path conjures up another key question: What's The PLAN?

The Plan is where the rubber meets the road. The Plan consists of two essential components: strategy and execution.

What are you going to do today to make progress on The Path? How are you going to do it? And, importantly, how will you be held accountable?

The strategy might be a model—copying a process by following someone who has already achieved what you're trying to achieve. There is a bit of caution when modelling; just realize, "No man can ever step into the same river twice."

The second essential component of THE PLAN, execution, has two parts. How you are going to achieve it? And, how will you hold yourself accountable to the daily actions/behaviors?

This is precisely why The Habit Factor's P.A.R.R. methodology is so effective, as it addresses both the strategy and the execution.

By Planning, Acting, Recording, and Reassessing the core, related behaviors (habits), you move yourself down The Path and closer to your goal each and every day.

Since we can only realize our ideal future one day at a time, P.A.R.R. is THE PLAN that helps anyone stay on The PATH and to WIN each and every day by tracking habits.

Enjoy the episode!
