In this episode, I talk about the importance of creating habits – the one thing that can take an ordinary person and help them create an extraordinary life! Let’s dig into shifting the things that will change your life, empty space, and so much more.

Show Notes: 

4:55 THINKING INTO RESULTS 

I’m going through this program called “Thinking Into Results” and it is literally changing my world! Iit says the common denominator of success and the secret of success of every person who has ever been successful lies in the fact that they form the habit of doing the things that failures don’t like to do.

6:30 THE TINY HABITS 

I’m reading this book called “Tiny Habits” right now, and it basically breaks down the entire process of habits and why it’s so powerful. He talks about three things: an anchor moment, the tiny behavior, and the instant celebration.

15:52 REACTIONS 

When my kids fight, it literally makes me want to scream like a crazy person! My natural instinct would be to yell and freak out. And I’m not saying I’m perfect, I have my moments…. But for the most part, if I can breathe, I can talk kindly. I can separate them and get the story from both sides. Then we can handle the situation. 

21:29 DO NOT RELY ON MOTIVATION AND WILLPOWER

One of the things that has been eye opening for me is how no matter what we want, we cannot rely on motivation and willpower to carry us through. We are naturally going to cave. So what we can do is make good choices that will lead us closer to our goals.

27:22 MORNING ROUTINE 

If you can’t get out of bed in the morning, make it easier to get out of bed and make it more inconvenient to stay in bed. So if your phone is your alarm and it’s right next to your bed (and it’s really easy to hit the snooze), then it’s really easy to grab your phone and just scroll. Set your alarm and put it in the other room! 

Make the bad choices inconvenient. 

30:47 MAKE A LIST 

After you listen to this podcast, I want you to make a list. 

What are some of the daily actions that you are making that aren’t in alignment with your goals? Then, what are some tiny behaviors that you can make that are in alignment with your goals?
