"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!...

"Feelings, and feelings and feelings. Let me try thinking instead." ~C.S. Lewis

As sentient beings, our feelings wield remarkable influence over our behaviors and, therefore, our lives.

As covered in a prior episode (Feelings and Focus), how well you concentrate and focus, at any given moment, is most often directly tied to your feelings.

Our ability to manage, channel, and master our emotions has a powerful effect on our ability to achieve our long-term goals—as well as guide new habit formation.

Today's episode offers a powerful reminder: What we do from one moment to the next, if we're not aware, is often guided by our feelings.

This understanding of feelings is both GOOD and BAD news.

The bad news: Behavior change and goal achievement efforts can be sabotaged for those who are unaware of their emotional states.

The good news is actually two-fold. First, feelings are ephemeral—they do not last very long. Secondly, with practice, we have the ability to master and channel our feelings to empower our behavior change and goal achievement efforts.

By managing the stories we tell ourselves at any given moment, we can alter our feelings about nearly any behavior change effort.

By asking a few critical questions, you can better guide your emotions to support and align your behaviors to your goals.

Questions to ask habitually:

1) How do I feel right now? Do I think I can modify that feeling by changing my environment and/or revisiting the story I'm telling myself?

2) How do I feel about the behavior/habit I'm planning to track?

3) Does the effort inspire me, or is it dreadful?

4) What story could I tell myself about the successful outcome of my goal or behavior change effort to fully inspire my emotions to take positive action?

The beauty is, by following The Habit Factor's P.A.R.R. methodology for habit development, you already have a PLAN in place and "Target Days" set for tracking new habits.

This alone has the ability to minimize unfavorable feelings that may not be supporting your habit change efforts.

By Planning, Acting, Recording, and Reassessing the core, related behaviors (habits), you also begin to align your emotions with your most important goals.

Enjoy the episode!
