    Lies Run Sprints, While Truth's Run Marathons |David T.S. Wood

    Lies Run Sprints, While Truth's Run Marathons |David T.S. Wood

    Humans are conditioned to lie. A recent study showed that the average person lies three times in a 10-minute conversation. Why do people lie? The truth is that people lie for many reasons. People lie to gain freedom, to fit in, to avoid embarrassment—more reasons than you can count.
     
    Sometimes, telling the truth can be incredibly hurtful. Words delivered clumsily or in anger can make a lasting negative impact. Learning to tell the truth with compassion is difficult—but important. Why? David. T.S. Wood shares his thoughts in this episode of My Extra Mile.
    You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...  
    Why humans are conditioned to lie How to tell the truth with compassion Why you should trust your gut feeling A challenge to clean up your act How do you tell the truth with compassion?  
    When you wield truth, it allows other people to be truthful around you. But it can be difficult to pull off elegantly and compassionately. David has friends who have awful body odor (it wasn’t for lack of resources). They didn't want to use deodorant because it can be harmful to your health. People talked about them behind their backs and it started to interfere with David’s relationship with them.
     
    So, David started their conversation with: “Is this a good time to chat?” He warned them it might be a tough conversation and he wanted them to be prepared. His intention was to build a stronger relationship with them. If he didn’t care about the person or the outcome, it isn’t a compassionate truth.
     
    David breaks a conversation down into these steps:
     
    Enter a conversation with someone when you’re in a good headspace. Make sure the other person is in a place to receive whatever you have to say. Go into the conversation with an outcome in mind. Tell the truth with compassion.  
    Telling the truth isn’t about being angry. It’s not about you being right or wrong. If you want your words to change how people behave or you want to be understood, then angry words accomplish nothing. The other person closes down and there is no room for truth. Examine where you’re coming from. You need to wield truth with compassion and elevate yourself above the situation.
    Learn to trust your gut  
    When people aren’t being truthful, you feel it. You might not be able to pinpoint it, but you have a gut feeling that you’re being lied to. You HAVE to trust your gut and your subconscious mind. When people aren’t telling the whole truth, you lose respect for them and trust in them—and rightfully so.
     
    The subconscious processes 4 billion pieces of information every second when our conscious mind only processes 2,000. When little kids don’t like someone, parents tend to poo-poo it and force them into situations they’re not comfortable with (like showing someone affection when they don’t want). When that happens, we lose the trust in ourselves to trust that little voice and trust our intuition.
    Why is living in a world of truth so powerful?  
    You gain respect, forge greater connections, and build self-confidence. You gain a deeper sense of self-trust. David has found that negative energy ends when you tell the truth. We all know what it feels like to own the truth. Sometimes it can be liberating and other times it’s awful. But when you accept responsibility for your mistakes and tell the truth—No matter how embarrassing it is—most people appreciate it and empathize with you.
     
    Are there some conversations that you’re afraid to have? Are there areas where you’re exaggerating or embellishing? David challenges you to look at your life: Practice cleaning yourself up. Stop telling the white lies. Lead with intention and remember what you want the outcome to be. Make your conversations solution focused. Build toward telling the truth with compassion—all the time.

    100% Trust 100% of the Time | David T.S. Wood

    100% Trust 100% of the Time | David T.S. Wood

    What would happen if you walked through the world with a deeper trust in yourself and a deeper trust in humanity? David lives by the principle of 100% trust 100% of the time. He’s learned that when trust is present things move faster, which is the premise of Stephen M.R. Covey’s book The Speed of Trust. This episode of My Extra Mile is David’s exploration into the topic of trust and how to build it into your life. He shows that ability to trust impacts your life positively. David shares some amazing stories in this episode—don’t miss it.
    You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...  
    The Speed of Trust by Stephen M.R. Covey David’s mantra: 100% trust 100% of the time If you want the world to trust you, you have to be trustworthy The concept of reconditioning your reticular activating system (RAS) 100% trust 100% of the time  
    David operates on the principle of 100% trust 100% of the time. David believes his life flows easily because he isn’t consumed with distrust. It affects his ability to connect when he first meets someone. People have a lot of fear with how they protect their world, which closes them off. Just because you were robbed once doesn’t mean it will happen again. It’s how you respond and adapt that matters. David chooses to avoid carrying paranoia and fear with him.
     
    You don’t have to live in a world of distrust. David feels that feelings of guardedness and distrust attract exactly what you’re trying to protect yourself from. How does David trust 100% of people 100% of the time? David shares a few stories that demonstrate that when you treat people with trust, people become even more trustworthy.
    What happens when someone breaks your trust?  
    That doesn’t mean that you can’t listen to your intuition. Some things are necessary. But you don’t want your default mode to be distrustful. You don’t want to walk through the world projecting distrust. If someone breaks David’s trust, he’ll have a conversation with them. David truly believes that when he addresses someone, he’s teaching them how to treat him. He’s showing them that what they did doesn’t work for him and he allows them to start over. If people prove themselves to be untrustworthy in multiple situations, David is certainly more aware of it.
    If you want the world to trust you, you have to be trustworthy  
    If you want the world to trust you, you have to be trustworthy. Keep your word. Do what you say you’re going to do. Apologize for your mistakes—and be sincere. Tell the truth—not an adapted truth or an element of truth but the whole truth. When you break trust, clean it up in an authentic way. People will relate to you and understand. Live in a world where your word is your bond.
     
    When we are trustworthy, we teach people to trust us more. David emphasizes that you shouldn’t wait for the world to show you it’s trustworthy before you become trustworthy. David’s personal experience is that people show up as trustworthy when you give them the benefit of the doubt.
    Recondition your reticular activating system (RAS)  
    The world is more beautiful with trust. Our ability to share trust attracts and brings so much back because of your capacity to be open. David’s predominant thought pattern is trust. So he’s always seeing reasons to trust more.
     
    Have you come across someone who looks menacing or distrustful? Your reticular activating system (RAS) is likely conditioned to see through the filter of distrust. But you can recondition your RAS to choose to trust and see good.
     
    Perhaps the kid on the street corner in a dark hoodie isn't going to rob someone, but they’re cold. Maybe they just had a fight and are covering up their emotions. Whatever we predominantly think about we see and notice in the world. We see the world as we are.

    How To "Authentically" Build a Thriving Social Media Following | Krystal Morrison | David T.S. Wood

    How To "Authentically" Build a Thriving Social Media Following | Krystal Morrison | David T.S. Wood

    How do you build an authentic social media following? Today’s guest on My Extra Mile, Krystal Morrison, shares her method for approaching social media. She shares the rituals that she implements each day, how she manages social media, and how she’s built a community. If you’re striving to cultivate a social media community—don’t miss this episode with David T.S. Wood.
    You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...  
    What made Krystal the woman she is today Why Krystal chose to embrace social media Why some people gain traction and others don’t How to bring genuineness to your social media Developing congruence between real life and your social media Modeling after—but not copying—people or brands you admire The daily rituals that Krystal embraces for success Setting boundaries with social media How Krystal constructs her Instagram posts How to grow your following organically and authentically  
    When you seem to be doing everything right, why isn’t your following growing? Krystal asks you to reflect: What were you feeling when you were posting? Were you having the worst day ever? When you aren’t in a good place, your posts won’t be well-received. There’s a larger energy at play.
     
    A lot of people post something and don’t stick around to build community. Krystal posts to communicate and connect with people. The goal is to build relationships. To do that, her goal is to connect with 5–10 people a day. Another thing she recommends. Read your comments and respond to them authentically. More comments on your post helps the algorithm as well.
     
    Krystal is genuine and truly desires to get to know people. She doesn’t see them as a target for her business. She always comes from a place of “they spoke to me” and “they’re human.” She’s hoping to bring some light into someone’s day. Listen to hear the method she uses to connect and build relationships.
    How to develop congruence between real life and your social media  
    If Krystal can’t show up authentically, she doesn’t. If she’s having a hard day, she just doesn’t log on. She gives herself permission to come back to the platform when she’s in a better place. Then maybe she’ll share the story in an inspiring or funny way. Because life isn’t perfect. But she wants to share what led to the bad day or what she got out of it. If someone comes to her page, she wants them to feel they got value out of the interaction.
    The rituals that Krystal embrace for success  
    Krystal has two children and when she wakes up to them, she’s engulfed in their world and their needs—just like any mother. So, she started getting up earlier to take 15 minutes to quiet her mind and meditate. She tries to take 5 minutes every day to write out what she appreciates and is grateful for—everything that feels good in her life today. What makes you feel light, fun, eager, and excited? She recommends doing that before you do anything else. It’s simple but it elevates her energy.
    How Krystal sets boundaries on social media  
    Krystal likes to implement a schedule, so she doesn’t hit a place of burnout. Krystal only works after she’s had an hour in the morning with her children. She also allocates 30 minutes to check her inbox. How many times do you login and get distracted? Don’t get stuck in the scroll-hole. She gets on, makes her post, and interacts with 10 other people.
     
    It’s about being intentional with your time—not getting lost in the scroll. Krystal also turns her notifications completely off. The truth is, you have control over when you pick up your phone. Create control in your life and what you allow in your mind at that moment.
     
    She notes that “How we’re taking care of ourselves is how we will show up in social media and our businesses.” If your social media feels flat, how can you connect

    There's Nothing "New" about being "The New Normal" | David T.S. Wood

    There's Nothing "New" about being "The New Normal" | David T.S. Wood

    Everyone’s heard the phrase “The New Normal” being tossed around recently. David T.S. Wood really dislikes the phrase. Why? The new normal is like saying that something shifted in the world and we’ve been handed only one option. In this episode of My Extra Mile, David explores the negative connotations of this phrase and shares his preferred definition. Don’t miss his inspiring take on the new normal. 
    You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...  
    Redefining the whole idea of “The new normal” Taking this opportunity to redesign your life Changing the lens, you view the world with Making your “normal” the opposite of normal Give the new normal a NEW definition  
    Returning to normal means going back to a status quo. David believes that one of the most dangerous things in humanity is complacency, apathy, and being in your “comfort zone.” It’s boring, predictable, and same-old-same-old. So, what if we have to adjust to a new way of behaving?
     
    How does David process what’s going on? He never wants to be normal. He does well because he’s abnormal. He doesn’t play in the lines, he breaks the rules, he doesn’t do what everyone else is doing. The challenge with being different is that you will piss people off, you will stand out, and you will be a target.
    Take this opportunity to redesign your life  
    If your life was normal before, look at this situation as an opportunity to redesign your life in a more beautiful way. If you’ve lost your job and a few months of no income has put you in a scary financial situation, maybe it IS time for a new normal. Is that the way you want to live? How do you better prepare yourself for situations like this? Who do you have to become to earn more money?
     
    When David started working, he had a job as a dishwasher at $4 an hour. But he wasn’t a normal dishwasher—he was exceptional. He was positive. He did his job well. He built relationships. He got a shot as a waiter which eventually led to him down the road to owning a restaurant. David projected an attractive energy and doors opened for him.
    Change the lens you view the world with  
    This pandemic is simply something we’re all dealing with. World war II was horrendous. Millions of people died. David looks at that scenario and says, “Look at our life today.” There’s a pandemic, but he points out that we can’t say it’s the worst thing humanity has ever had to survive. People are still thriving.
     
    David emphasizes that “It does come down to the thoughts we’re willing to think and the lens that we’re willing to look through.” David understands that in this time millions of people are thriving, millions are stuck, and millions are playing into a victim mentality.
     
    But it’s not just happening to you. It’s happening to the whole world. What can we learn? How do we thrive? How do we create a positive and beautiful lens? We have two choices: We can hate it or we can love the situation that we’re in. David points out that this situation allows us to experience things differently. 
    David’s “normal” is the opposite of normal  
    David encourages you to sit down and define what your normal is. Do you see low-energy words? Do they put you in a box? Does your definition put you in a victim mentality? Do your words shrink you down? Do they have negative connotations? Erase those words from your list of normal.
     
    David emphasizes that the words you speak determine how you live your life. The words you speak determine who you are. The words you speak attract positivity or negativity. Look at your language around your new normal and make it positive. Say it with certainty and positivity. You are NOT a victim of a pandemic.
     
    David has always seen himself as the master of his own fate. He can control what he does, what he thinks, and what he speaks
