    Do you want to live your best life? Your absolute best life? If not, you’re in the wrong place. But, if you want to explore what you can do to make the most of where you’re at right now and begin to guide yourself to take your life in the direction you want, then this episode and this series ‘How to choose your best life’ is just for you.
     
    Welcome my friend! We are in a series on ‘How to choose your best life’ and I am thrilled you’re here and joining in. Say, make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss any episodes in this series. You don’t want to miss any in this series, but I also have a few more series coming out where I’m going to hit some major topics to help you Enjoy Life & Create The Future You Want. 
     
    Have you ever got a new car or truck? Maybe one that was just new to you? Did you ‌see it all over the place after you got it? Over my years, I’ve had a few different vehicles. Some were more popular and weren’t. But, the same funny thing happened with each one. As soon as I started driving it, I saw that same car or truck all over the place. 
    Now, did everyone else go out and get that same used vehicle I got the same day I got mine? Of course, not. 
    I saw more of them because my attention was on the vehicle I was driving. I looked for them and I saw more of them. 
     
    What you look for can determine what you see. 


    See Success
    Past Right, wrong or whatever. See the benefit. Be kind to yourself Give yourself a little grace You're human If you don't see the success in your past, it will be more difficult to build on it. Future Believe in your future Believe that you can achieve. Maybe with some help, guidance, or even mentoring. If you don't see success in your future, it will be more difficult to pursue it.  Possibilities Life is full of possibilities. It is far more risky to never take a risk.  Be optimistic  If you don't see possibilities, it will be more difficult to take advantage of them. Challenges Today's struggles will give you the strength you'll need tomorrow.  If you don't see success in the challenges you face, then it will be more difficult for you to overcome them. Big Hope in the big things that are important to you Keeping the big things you want in mind can help you keep going in the right direction  If you don't see success in the big important things, it will be more difficult for you to achieve them. Small Value in taking the small steps Focusing on the small steps you need to take can help you continue to make progress If you don't see success in the small steps, then it will be more difficult for you to stay persistent in doing the work to achieve goals and create the future you want.   
    What can you do? 
    Start where you're at. Of the areas I just mentioned, which ones are you already seeing the successes? The Past, The Future, The Possibilities, The Challenges, The Big, The Small. What areas is it easier for you to look for and see the positives? 
    Which areas is it more of a challenge for you to see the positives? Or, your successes? 
    If you want to add the value of seeing the good things in any of these areas, the best way to do that is to write out. They can be small things. Maybe it’s tough to list many positives in a certain area. That's okay. Start where you're at. 
    The more you can begin to see the successes in each area the more you'll be able to build on those successes, move forward, and make progress to even better.

Vision Can be the hardest or most challenging Attempt to see what could be for your life Becomes greater when you include others Leads to significance over success Do you have a vision for your life?   
    Start where you’re at.

    Wherever you’re at right now, start from there and work to improve and increase the goals you have for your life.

    Show Notes:
    Do you want someone to sneak in during the middle of the night and steal your dreams away from you? Preventing you from ever experiencing the life you want? As scary as that sounds, it actually happens to some people. But, it won’t have to happen to you not after listening to this episode. 
     
    Having your dreams stolen sounds like one of the most terrible things that could happen. That’s exactly why I don’t want it to happen to you. Today, we’ll talk about 2 common factors that end up stealing people’s dreams. Not yours though, because it is relatively simple to guard yourself against these thieves. And once you know about them, they actually lose a lot of their power. You’ll just have to stay vigilant and maybe even recruit a friend to help call you out if you start to slip into letting your guard down. 
     
    By now you’ve got to be wondering what thieves I’m talking about. 




    Doubt  Doubt steals more dreams than failure ever will. 
    Doubt stops people from trying. Stops them from succeeding and prevents them from ever experiencing what they could. All just because of a little doubt.
     
    What’s the source of doubt?  One major source of doubt can steam from fearing failure. Failing is no reason to doubt yourself, though. Listen to episode ‘224: Why You Should Stop Avoiding Failure’.
     
    How to reduce doubt  
    Build belief!  Encourage yourself See past success.  Acknowledge even the smallest of progress. Take small steps to BIG goals.  
    Personal development can be the best way to stop doubt from stealing your goals.



    Comfort  That dangerous comfort zone traps people into not taking the action that could lead to the amazing life they want to live. 
     
    You can have comfort or growth. But, not both. 
     
    You can develop the habit of stepping out of your comfort zone, though. Yes, it’s still a little uncomfortable. But, you’re used to it. So, it’s not so bad. 
     
    How to stop conform from stopping you Build your WHY Become intentional Develop habits through small consistent steps.  
    Personal Development is the best way to stop comfort from stealing your goals.
    What you do is your choice.
    Small steps are easier than large leaps.

    225: Leave Nothing To Chance

    Are you frustrated? Maybe some things aren’t going your way. Listen to these words that one of my mentors told me “frustration comes from trying to control the uncontrollable.” Just because you’re frustrated and there are things you can't control doesn’t mean you have to leave it all to chance. Don’t leave your success, goals, or the future for you and your family to chance. Leave nothing to chance. Now, let’s get into the episode.
     
    Is it possible to leave nothing to chance? 
    I believe so. 
     
    Before we get too much further as I think about the past few posts and episodes, I have to acknowledge something. I know it’s not a popular opinion. That’s okay because I’m not good at being popular. And you might pick up on the fact that I believe you have enormous power and control of the life you live. 
     
    You can’t control everything. You don’t need to control everything. And I'm not against taking some chances. Life has risks. And that’s okay. Remember the podcast episode from last week? It was all about not being able to avoid failure if you want to succeed. Can’t control that.
     
    Think of buying a lottery ticket. I’ve bought a few over the years. Not that many, though. Still, I don’t believe there is anything wrong with buying lottery tickets. If that is what you want to do. Now, this will be an extreme example, but using lottery tickets as your retirement planning is leaving it all to chance. And it is probably not the best step to take for your financial security. 
     
    What I want to talk to you about is how to stop leaving your life to chance. You may not buy any lottery tickets at all. That’s cool. Are you leaving your future to change in other areas? 
     
    Like I said, there are things you can’t control. Putting too much on what you can’t control leads to disappointment and major frustration. 
     
    But, what if you focused on the exact things you can control? 
    That just may make the biggest difference in your life. It really could. 
     
    Negatives:
    Gives you the responsibility Removes excuses Other people may not like it  
    Positives:
    Security Progress Freedom Confidence Live The Life You Want  
    Now is the time to accept ownership of your life. Take control of the things you can control. One thing you can control is your choices. I talked a good bit about choosing your choices in episode 223.
     
    Fortunately for you, there is some great news for leaving nothing to chance. No matter what you want to achieve, most likely someone has done it or something similar. And you probably can learn from them on how to achieve what you want and live the life you want to live. That’s great news.
     
    In fact, there probably is a system out there that can help. Find a system that you can follow that leads to the life you want. What is a system? 
     
    A system allows for ordinary people to get extraordinary results predictably. - Bob Burg.
     
    I use an example from my life. I want to create a better financial future for my family. So, when I found a system with a long time proven track record and mentor to guide me, what do you think I did? Do you think I went after it? Of course, I did. I jumped at the opportunity. So, now that I have a system and a guide, I’m good right? Those two things mean that I’m set to achieve my goal of a better financial future for me and my family, right? 
     
    Nope! Not at all!
     
    In order for me to leave nothing to chance, I have to do the work needed consistently to get the results I want. 
     
    Doing the work is the thing that I can control. Maybe I can’t ‌control how long

    Show Notes:
    As weird as it may sound, you may need to pursue the exact thing you don’t want to end up getting what you really ‌want. I know. It’s weird. That’s why we need to talk about it in today’s episode.
    You want to succeed and achieve your goals, right? 
    Of course, you do. We all do. If we all want to succeed, then does that mean we avoid failure? 
    Nobody really wants to fail, right? 
     
    It’s easy to look at failure as the opposite of success. You either succeed or fail. It’s as if on one side you have failure way over here on the left and on the far other side way over on the right is success. 
    And in order to succeed you’ll have to go as far away from failure as possible and then you’ll be able to succeed. That makes logical sense. And unfortunately as you know life is not always logical. In fact, it’s not logical at all in this case.
     Avoiding failure may take you straight to never achieving your goals and not being able to live the life you want.
     
    How can avoiding failure stop you from achieving your goals? 
     
    Actively avoiding failure can:
    Stop you from experiencing opportunities Stop your learning Stop your growth Stop you from developing character Stop you from anticipating failure Stop you from giving your best Stop you from trying Stop you from helping others Stop you from getting the best from life  
    The further apart you see success and failure the more likely you won't experience your full potential. Think about that.
     
    Now, imagine something with me. Imagine that you see success way over here on the left and the success of achieving your goals over here on the right. Now, bring the two together. Put the two right next to each other. See it in a way where you know you’ll have to go through failure in order to get to success. See failure as a step toward success. 
     
    Far too often, people, maybe at one time you too, see failure as something to avoid in order to succeed. But we can go through failure, benefit from it, and use that benefit to achieve what we want and live our best lives. 
     
    It’s okay to fail. Accept it. Learn from it. Give it your absolute best. And don’t give up.
    This is your life. Make it what you want.

    223: Your 2 Most Powerful Assets

    223: Your 2 Most Powerful Assets

    Are you letting the fact that some people have more resources or assets stop you from achieving what you want? Don’t let what other people have stop you from living your best life! Today, we’re going to explore a few assets I know you have. And these can help you achieve and succeed. 
     
    This Episode’s Main Points:
    No matter who you are or where you're from you have two enormously powerful assets.
    You have potential inside of you Your choices can make a difference in your life

    Yes, other people may have more resources to succeed. Yes, someone else has more assets to get started toward their goals. Yes, that other person is getting help from some powerful people to get them on the right track. You can’t control that. 
    But, the question is “Are you going to let what you can’t control stop you from doing what you can do?”
    I hope not! Please don’t. 
    Instead, use what you have, what I know you have, use it to the best of your ability and you will ‌do great things. You can achieve your goals. 
     
    In a world with a million things stacked against you, what do you have going for you? 
    Yes, some people have more, some people have less. But, how much you have or don’t have isn’t what is doing to determine your level of success.
    Yes, starting with a million dollars in the bank would make it easier to invest in real estate. But, some wildly successful people have started with nothing. 
    Some people start with more. Some start with less. What’s most important is that you start and make the most of what you have.
    Fortunately for you, you have some assets that no matter who you are. 
    And what will make all the difference in you reaching your potential and living the best life you can is what you choose to do with them. 
     
    Your Two most powerful assets.
    Potential
    I know you have greatness inside of you. You have amazing potential. Maybe you just need a little help to see it. or you just need to make some simple adjustments so that you can begin to live it out.
    On a personal note, I’ve been told that I have potential many times over the years. Sometimes I didn’t receive it so well. Sometimes it felt like people were telling me that I wasn’t doing good enough. That didn’t feel good. 
    That’s not what I’m telling you here at all. What I want you to know is more of that I believe in you. That you are good enough. That you can do the things that you want to do. You can live the life you want to live. That’s your potential. 
     
    Choices
    Another great asset of yours is the choices you make.  
    How you spend your choices is what will allow you to reach your full potential or not. You get to choose what you do. I know you have responsibilities and demands for your time and attention. There are plenty of things you need to do. But, looking at how you spend your choices can begin to bring the power back into your hands and your mind so that you can guide your life to go where you want.
    What choices can you make that will help you live your best life, reaching your potential, and creating the future you want for yourself?
     
    Mindset - Develop the mindset you want by choosing what you put into your mind and the words you use.
    Actions - Use your actions to guide your life by being intentional with what you choose to do.
    Goals - Aim for what you want in life. Otherwise, you won't hit it.
