"If you don't get it here, right now, you won't get it anywhere." ~Dr. Wayne Dyer Building off prior episodes, "" and "," 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...

"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!...

"Catch People Doing Things Right." ~ Ken Blanchard
 
Today's Mind-Bullet Monday is based on Ken Blanchard's brilliant book on positive relationships, Whale Done!

As a leader/parent/partner, how do you get people to do what you want/need them to do? More importantly, how do you get YOURSELF to do what needs to be done? In Whale Done, Ken shares how it's crucial to catch people doing something right ("Whale Done!) instead of catching them doing something wrong (Gotcha!).

Think about it: Trainers have somehow convinced 5-ton whales to leap out over the water and jump over a rope. How is that possible?

Turns out the trick the whale trainers use is to simply begin with the rope underwater! Then, over time, slowly and incrementally they increase the rope's height all while offering intense praise and rewards— accentuating the positive!

MG asserts that if this is the process to get a 5-ton whale to jump out of the water... how can it not work with other people— even difficult people and most importantly, ourselves — to achieve our seemingly insurmountable goals and challenges.

In fact, this is precisely what The Habit Factor's methodology has always taught, particularly when it comes to PARR: Plan, Act, Record, Reassess. You set the bar (for your behavior/habit) low, track, be consistent, and move positively toward your goal, increasing the habit's strength!

What (or who) is the 5-ton whale in your life? How can you bring about change by setting the bar super-low (underwater) and creating powerful, positive momentum?

Enjoy!
