How to make 2018 a Breakthrough Year, (STEP #9, The Mastery Mindset)


Be like water…” ~Bruce Lee

[STEP #9, MASTERY, in this BREAKTHROUGH mini-series, “How to Make 2018 Your Best, Breakthrough New Year Ever!”]

Step #9 =  The Mastery Mindset!

Step #1: Decide
Step #2: Assess
Step #3: Values, Mission and Vision
Step #4: Passion & Purpose
Step #5: Energy & Enthusiasm
Step #6: GOALS!
Step #7: HABIT! HABIT! HABIT!
Step #8: HabitStrength?

When you think about the concept of “mastery” what comes to mind?

Martin begins this show reviewing that invariably, after you go through each of the first 8 steps, you will come upon OBSTACLES.

It’s the true Master who regards obstacles as opportunities in disguise.

Recall, that there are three great constants in life; change, choice and principles.

Therefore the idea of mastery as a destination? an arrival point? can only be an illusion.

If change is a constant, and it is, the idea of perpetual learning to become a “master” is essential.

In this episode Martin recaps the very traits essential to the Mastery Mindset and even takes his cue from an unlikely source, H2O.

The mastery mindset encapsulates a lot of ideas, including; the “beginner’s mind” OR the idea that “every day is day one”.

The real master never arrives and is therefore, always arriving.

“Every day is day one.” ~Kelly Slater

a couple great books to help form the Mastery Mindset

-The Obstacle Is The WAY

MASTERY

-The GRIT Pyramid– (How to develop the HABIT of GRIT)

Don’t forget the The Pressure Paradox? ; )

How to make 2018 a Breakthrough Year, (STEP #7) HABIT! HABIT! HABIT! ; )

Cosmic Habit Force is the greatest of all natural laws. It is Nature’s comptroller through which all other natural laws are coordinated.
~Napoleon Hill

[STEP #7,  (week #7) in the BREAKTHROUGH mini-series, “How to Make 2018 Your Best, Breakthrough New Year Ever!”]

Step #7 =  HABIT! (Cosmic Habit Force, Habit Alignment & P.A.R.R.)

Step #1: Decide
Step #2: Assess
Step #3: Values, Mission and Vision
Step #4: Passion & Purpose
Step #5: Energy & Enthusiasm
Step #6: GOALS!

And, now we delve into… HABIT!

HABIT. HABIT. HABIT.

It’s worthwhile to keep in mind that when The Habit Factor® was first  introduced, habit was an afterthought if any thought at all when it came to goal achievement. This was primarily due to its negative connotation, “smoking, drinking, drugs,” etc.

Even in what is regarded as one of the best self-help books of all time, Think & Grow Rich, habit, as a force for goal achievement was NOT identified, not as a specific process to develop and align habits to one’s goals. In fact, it took Mr. Hill (link) in his own words, another “twenty years” to recognize what he left out of Think & Grow Rich. It was HABIT or as he put it, “Cosmic Habit Force

So, what does this mean to you?

In real words/language? Simply, put, HABIT or, Habit Alignment Technology? is the most efficient way for your to achieve your goals.

In this episode, Martin specifically talks about the force of habit and / or Cosmic Habit Force plus, Habit Alignment Technology? and the P.A.R.R. methodology to create enduring, positive habits.

“Habit is second nature, or rather, ten times nature.” William James

How to make 2018 a Breakthrough Year, (STEP #6)

Success is goals, and all else is commentary.
~Brian Tracy

[STEP #6,  (week #6) in the BREAKTHROUGH mini-series, “How to Make 2018 Your Best, Breakthrough New Year Ever!”]

Step #6 =  GOALS!

Step #1: DECIDE.
Step #2: Assess
Step #3: Values, Mission and Vision
Step #4: Passion & Purpose
Step #5: Energy & Enthusiasm

And, now we’re on to step #6, GOALS!!!

BT is a hero and a living legend in the personal development space and I’m fairly sure NOBODY has created more quality personal development content than Mr. Brian Tracy.

Point is… the man is a walking ‘master-class’ in personal development and if he’s suggesting goals are (equal to) success, than we probably ought to pay more attention to them, right?

So, in this episode we do just that…

Zig Ziglar used to say, “Don’t be a wandering generality, you must become a meaningful specific.”

Goals allow us to become a meaningful specific.

What is your #1 Goal right now?
Where is that goal written?
Is it posted somewhere were you can see it?
Do you revisit your goals often? If so, how often?

Why are goals so darn important? First if our energy (recall last episode) can, at any moment, go in any number of different directions than goals force us to focus our energy and attention! Goals help us to concentrate and direct our precious energy toward something that matters to us.

So why don’t most people set goals? Largely because A) they don’t really understand the importance of goals. And, B) they don’t understand the process to set and achieve goals.

This episode is all about “A” above… Really, understanding the importance of goals to the point where we can’t ignore them and the next couple weeks we will dig into The Habit Factor’s method for goal achievement!

Remember, each week we provide a tool or template to help you process and implement the week’s lesson and this week is no different!

How to make 2018 a Breakthrough Year, (STEP #5)

Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
~R.W. Emerson

[Here’s STEP #5 (week #5) in our BREAKTHROUGH mini-series, “How to Make 2018 Your Best, Breakthrough New Year Ever!”]

Step #5 =  Energy & Enthusiasm!

Step #1 was about Deciding.
Step #2 was about Assessing
Step #3 was about Values, Mission and Vision
Step #4 was about Passion & Purpose

And, now we’re on to Energy & Enthusiasm!

It’s simple math really… YOU are energy and your goal is going to require energy in order to be achieved.

Mark twain once quipped, “And what is a man without energy? Nothing? nothing at all.”

It cannot be over-stated… the quality of your energy and enthusiasm will have a direct influence upon the achievement of your goals.

The quality of your energy and enthusiasm will have a direct influence upon your goals! #habits #goals (tweet that one ; )

So, when it comes to your “energy being” what do you do DAILY to optimize your energy?

What is your diet like? Have you fine-tuned your diet lately? Are you tracking any habits related to your diet? Are you tracking any diet objectives? For instance how many glasses of water you drink a day?

What about your exercise? What exercise habits are you tracking?

If “health is the first wealth” and it is. Consistently optimizing your wellness, health/energy system is an essential foundation of goal achievement and and will help ensure that your next year will be your best year ever!

How to make 2018 a Breakthrough Year, (STEP #4)

The unexamined life is not worth living.
~Socrates

[This is STEP #4 in our BREAKTHROUGH mini-series, “How to Make 2018 Your Best, Breakthrough New Year Ever!”]

Step #4 =  Passion & Purpose.

Step #1 was about DECIDING.
Step #2 was about ASSESSING
Step #3 was about Values, Mission and Vision

And, now we’re on to passion and purpose!

You may be thinking… “Oh no! More work!?”

Recall Lao Tzu’s famous statement, “Knowing others is wisdom, knowing our self is enlightenment”.

So, in this episode, we do exactly that, further examine ourselves; our passions,  strengths, weaknesses and in the process may just discover our purpose.

The good news is this, if you’ve been struggling to identify your purpose, chances are these exercises are going to help get you a lot closer.

Finally, to underscore the significance of this important step, “Your purpose in life is to find you purpose and give your whole heart to it.” ~Buddha

How to make 2018 a Breakthrough Year, (STEP #3)

Work harder on yourself than you do on your job. When you work hard on your job you make a living and when you work hard on yourself you’ll make a fortune.
~Jim Rohn

[NOTE: This is our NEW YEAR BREAKTHROUGH Series, “How to Make 2018 Your Best Breakthrough New Year!”]

Step 1# is about deciding. Step #2 is about awareness and assessment.

So, STEP #3 is…

YOUR CORE VALUES. MISSION and VISION

That sounds like some work doesn’t it? Which is why 95% of people never go through these exercises. They require deep introspection, humility and courage.

But, it’s no coincidence that the greatest organizations and companies do these exercises they have figured this out.

Truth is, it was only after doing this exercise for my company that I realized I HAD TO DO THIS FOR MYSELF and it was a game-changer!

Thus, it’s part of the FOUNDATION for our Personal Breakthrough Series.

Why don’t most people do these exercises for themselves? First, they require work (time and energy). The other reason is people begin to doubt themselves and wonder if they know what their values are, or what their Mission statement ought to say. It take time and careful introspection.

Hence, such self questioning is the very proof that these are personal, mental exercises that MUST BE DONE!

***TIP*** DO NOT WORRY about getting it “RIGHT” the first time or even the fifth time, this is a PROCESS. It will take time to get to a point where you are happy with what you’ve produced and feel comfortable with the results. Remember, you are working with clay here and not marble.

How to make 2018 a Breakthrough Year, (STEP #2)

Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things, they are transformed.
~Thich Nhat Hanh

[NOTE: This is our NEW YEAR BREAKTHROUGH Series (at least 8 new episodes, taking you step-by-step, “How to Make 2018 Your Biggest Breakthrough New Year!”]

If Step # was about DECIDING (and it was), this week is all about awareness and assessment.

STEP #2: Assess.

This episode we’re reminded that all information is good information if we’re honest and courageous enough to shine the light on ourselves. To that end, Martin shares another Jim Rohn classic quote, “Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job. If you work hard on your job you can make a living, but if you work hard on yourself you’ll make a fortune.”

Turns out, we ALL tend to go bust our butt at our jobs working 40+ hours every week but how much time are we spending on our own personal development and improvement?

The point is, now that we’ve DECIDED we are going to change, it’s time for US to get to work on ourselves and become the change we seek.

“The world makes way for the man that knows where he is going.” Emerson once famously said. Awareness and assessment both allow us to direct the change rather than just being subjected to its constant force.

And, it all starts with becoming aware and assessing ourselves.
