"Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such."~Henry Miller

What's the main difference between "successful" people and "failures"?

Arguably, it's that they've simply compiled more daily "wins" over their lifetime than loses.

It's actually a bit more nuanced than that, as any given day may provides critical defining "moments".

What's an example of a critical defining moment?

Let's say someone or something disappoints you. Now you're angry and frustrated.

How are you going to respond?

Each moment presents a bifurcation point; an opportunity to stay on the path or, to fall off the path.

In short, "successful" people stay on "the path" from one moment to the next, more often than not.

How do they do that?

To stay on The PATH (prior episode), they respond rather than react!

When problems arise, expectations are dashed, in short, when "sh*t happens", "successful" people choose to respond better;  more positively, most of the time.

It's the "unsuccessful"—the ones that react emotionally, flip out and therefore, push themselves further and further off "The Path".

In total, over one's lifetime, all of these moments compound from moment to moment, day after day.

Enjoy the episode!

"If work expands to fill the time allotted, then you can count on 'stuff'  expanding to fill the space allotted."

Aristotle once observed, "Nature abhors a vacuum."

This week, MG combines A's brilliant observation with Cyrile Northcote Parkinson's "law," known as "Parkinson's Law" — "Work expands to fill the time allotted."

The resultant corollary: "Stuff expands to fill the space allotted."

To illustrate his point, MG shares a couple of quick stories from his home: "The Drawer of Death" and the "Closet of Death."

While nobody actually died in either, these spaces are consummed with "STUFF"! They are filled with everything, and yet, whenever you go looking for something, you can't find it.

The reason for sharing this?

YOUR MIND is the drawer and closet—your mind is SPACE to be filled.

While keeping an 'empty' mind is a noble pursuit, it's impossible for extended periods of time.

Even the awareness of possessing an empty mind, paradoxically, produces a thought, which proves it cannot be empty!

The beauty is, when you know your mind won't be empty for too long, your mission is to fill it with "good" stuff—stuff that supports your goals and ideals!

Don't let your mind become the drawer or closet of death.

Choose to fill your mind with good, supportive thoughts and stories that work to support your goals and ideals.

If your mind is going to get filled, choose to intentionally fill it with the good stuff!

Enjoy the episode!

"Give someone just 30 seconds, and if they're being honest, they can tell you the one or two skills that, when crafted to excellence, could change their life."

Last week's episode, How Can I Use This?, was all about the 3 R's—being Responsible, Resourceful, and Resilient.

This week, MG explores a concept he learned when training for his first Ironman: limiters.

The Ironman is a triathlon comprised of three separate skills (in order): Swimming, Cycling, and Running.

In Going Long!, a great book that was recommended to MG, the author advises focusing most of your training time on your key limiter—that is, the one weakness likely to hold you back or most significantly impact your finish.

For MG, the limiter was obvious right away: running!

Accordingly, he spent 80% of his training time trying to improve his running technique—his limiter.

By doing this, he became a better runner, and the conditioning the running provided became a nice overlap effect for the other two events, swimming and cycling.

You can use this same strategy—focusing on your most significant limiter—as you pursue your goals and professional aspirations.

What one or two skills, if you were to develop them to excellence, would take your career to the next level?

Most people immediately know the answer.

While many "Goo Roos" advise people to ignore their weaknesses and focus only on strengths, the truth is, many weaknesses must be addressed and can't be outsourced.

For instance, nobody is going to lose weight or get fit for you. And, in some cases, you may have to be your own sales or marketing person, even if you don't see these areas as your strengths.

Whether it's writing, public speaking, marketing, or sales, identify your key limiter as it relates to your most essential goals.

Much like completing an Ironman, identifying and improving your limiter will go a long way toward helping you reach your personal and professional goals.

Enjoy the episode!

Chances are very good that your greatest problem at this moment could become your greatest asset in the future!

"How can I use this?"

That's a question you ought to develop the habit of asking.

It can be an incredibly valuable question.

Chances are very good that the biggest problem you are facing right now may represent your biggest opportunity and future breakthrough.

Are you "poor," perhaps having a hard time making money?

Terrific! How can you use that?

Are you having a problem gaining and keeping friends?

Terrific! How can you use that?

Are you overweight and out of shape?

Terrific! How can you use that?

The fact is, your current problems and weaknesses are excellent opportunities in disguise—if approached with the proper mindset, encapsulated in the 3 R's.

Responsible
It's your problem. You own it, and nobody is going to solve it for you.

Resourceful
You are a creature—a creative individual who is capable of coming up with novel solutions!

Resilient
Failure is just an opportunity to begin anew, more intelligently! You manage to process the "failures" as information and adapt appropriately.

The truth is, it's your life, and much like being on a deserted island, there is nobody to bitch and complain to.

Rather, you have to dig in and apply the 3 R's!

In the movie Castaway, Tom Hanks's character had a made-up friend, Wilson (a Wilson volleyball). He complained to Wilson and talked through his problems with Wilson.

Talking through his problems with Wilson gave Hanks's character the opportunity to articulate his frustrations and concerns, which ultimately helped him create solutions.

You can and should do the same.

Articulate and even write out your challenges; assess and review your weaknesses, and then ask, "How can I use this!"

Enjoy the episode!
