    THE Event

    THE Event

    "If you don't get it here, right now, you won't get it anywhere." ~Dr. Wayne Dyer

    Building off prior episodes, "Time: The Priceless Asset" and "The Game within The Game," this episode underscores an important awareness: Your time is limited, and THE Event is happening, right now!

    After a recent six-mile run, MG shared his run data with a good friend—a running buddy. The friend responded with a simple question, "Are you training for an event?" MG's response: “Nope.”
    Upon returning home, MG realized his mistake. He should have responded, "Yes!"
    The reality is, THE EVENT is happening right now, for everyone!

    Which begs the question: "How are you training for THE EVENT?"
    THE Event is LIFE!!
    Dr. Wayne Dyer used to say, “If you don’t get it here [the concept] right now, you're not going to get it anywhere."
    Your time is limited. Realizing that THE Event is live, right now, is your first step toward moving toward your most important goals and ideals.
    How are you participating in THE Event? As a spectator? As a competitor? How are you training and preparing for THE Event?
    Enjoy the episode!

    Obstacles

    Obstacles

    "Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal." ~Henry Ford

    Arguably, a goal really isn't a goal if there are no obstacles.
    The pursuit of any worthwhile goal is sure to reveal a handful of challenges and obstacles along the way. Further, when you overcome an obstacle, several more tend to present themselves.
    While many Goo-Roos will tell you to focus exclusively on the process—NOT the outcome—they are only partially right.
    Focusing exclusively on the process tends to yield—exclusively—challenges. Too many obstacles, therefore, become totally overwhelming for anyone, even the grittiest of people.
    Occasionally, it's important to lift your gaze and focus on the ideal end-state: THE GOAL!
    Remind yourself why you undertook the endeavor in the first place!
    Since your emotions guide your focus and attention, too many obstacles can quickly drain your emotional reserves, grinding you to a halt!
    Lack of energy equates to no desire to push onward through the challenges, pain, and obstacles.
    Lifting your sights and readjusting your focus upon the very reason you started your journey—the exciting outcome—is often what will compel you to push onward and battle through all the obstacles you face!

    Time: The Priceless Asset

    Time: The Priceless Asset

    "When you don't have goals, you're telling the universe that you don't really value your time."

    Even if a person has no money, no job, and only fair health, they possess the one miraculous asset required to achieve any goal: TIME!
    Time spent purposefully affirms this observation: Setting goals is NOT optional.
    With time, anyone with worthy goals and ideals has the potential to succeed.

    However, when we don't have clear goals, ideals, or objectives, time is simply wasted.
    Drifting aimlessly for too long is one of the greatest time-wasters of all.
    Arguably, even the pursuit of an incorrect goal or one that changes over time is more valuable than drifting for too long.
    Time is the one asset that enables anyone, from one day to the next, to pursue their ideal future—their success.
    Thus, the opposite must be true: Wasting time—squandering the priceless asset of time—is the one universal characteristic of all "failures."
    Lollygagging and aimlessly drifting is painless in the short term, but it's really the fast-lane to a lifetime of pain and regret.

    The Game Within The Game

    The Game Within The Game

    "Within every game, there are tasks and objectives along the way; your life is no different. Tracking your habits from one day to the next helps you to win the game-within-the-game each and every day!"

    Anytime you're about to play a game, be it a computer, board, or sport, the very first thing you'll want to do is understand the game's objectives.
    That is: How are you going to win the game?
    It turns out, life is nearly identical. This is all the proof you need to fully understand the statement, "Intelligence is goal-directed behavior."

    The good – and bad – news is that we have to determine the main objectives for ourselves.
    Those who take the time to establish clear goals and objectives for their lives know where they're trying to go, even if specific goals and objectives change along the way.
    This is why we admire those who set goals for themselves and go after them; they know where they are going, and they know from one day to the next if they are "winning."
    Unfortunately, too many people struggle if they haven't defined the goals that are important to them.
    The "game-within-the-game" means that once you've determined the big goals, "winning" comes down to daily victories.
    The "winning" can only happen one day at a time. This is precisely why The Habit Factor's FREE Habits-to-Goals tracking template (the World's FIRST Habits-to-Goals tracking template) has proven helpful to thousands of people around the world!

    The Free Habits-to-Goals Tracking TEMPLATE guides users in breaking down their BIG goal into the daily habits they must practice from one day to the next.
    By following The Habit Factor's PARR methodology, your sense of control, self-efficacy, and happiness greatly improves because you know, from one day to the next, if you're winning the game-within-the-game.
    The Habit Factor® is designed to help you WIN the GAME-within-the-Game

    STOP!

    STOP!

    "The speed of concentration is slow and/or stopped!"

    A perfectly timed New Year's episode.
    What do you think you are – in essence?
    A soul? The chemicals that make up your composition?
    What is it that comprises your "WHO?"

    It turns out, WHO we are is WHAT we do consistently.
    We're really just a compilation of our thought and behavior habits.
    Your habitual actions, behaviors, and decisions forge your CHARACTER.
    Thus, in order for anyone to change their RESULTS, the first thing they must do is alter their patterns of thought and behavior—their habits.
    The very best way to do that is to STOP!
    STOP for a moment.
    STOP moving. STOP thinking. STOP acting out of habit. Just press pause and STOP!
    Anytime you don't like the results you are getting, it's time to STOP!
    In the computing world, A STOP code, is a way to identify a "BUG" in the program.
    If a computer encounters a problem, it STOPS!
    Our results are the product of our INPUT.

    Our input is our thought and behavior HABITS.
    How are you going to identify the new input required if you don't first STOP?

    Just like in the computing world, after you stop, you'll assess the existing results and identify the new input you need – the HABITS that are required.
    It's time to STOP.
    Assess.
    Ask questions
    What's working? What isn't?
    What can you be doing better or differently?
    What new habits should you try to cultivate?
    Which habits should you STOP!
    Developing the habit of stopping is one of the best ways to work smarter.
    The beginning of the change you seek is right on the other side of the STOP sign.

    Don't run—STOP!

Dario Deak ,

Reset

I’ve been consuming Martin’s content for several years. The topics discussed within this podcast are timeless and worthy of study in any environment. It is one of my main go to’s especially when I need to reset my mind and actions that tend to drift away often due to many challenges of life. Simple and effective approach. Highly recommend!!!

ImImpressed ,

Suggestion

Martin,
See my previous comment. The content is great, but I wish you would change your podcast name back to the original HabitFactor instead of Habits2Goals. My only goal is to develop and maintain healthy habits. The notion of Goals gets too complicated and may confuse many. Need to be clear & calm before we can identify goals. At least make it clear that we don’t have to set our Goals before starting down this path.

Bill

Clarisse Gomez ,

Awesome Podcast!!!!
