In today's episode, we'll explore why being weird is so important. It's the second part of a series that will walk you through how to have a new life in the new year. Last week, we shared why habits are more effective than goals or resolutions. And next week, we'll interview Tony Stubblebine about why the Lift app is your perfect partner for starting 2014 off right. Listen in, and you’ll learn why you can't be normal, why those you admire have quirks (or are downright weird), why you'll need some weird habits too, and which ones to pick.
Today, we're starting a series that will walk you through how to have a new life in the new year. Science and research, and dozens of interviews have shown us that it's possible and exactly how it works. In this episode, I'll share the ideas from my TEDx talk - why habits are a secret superpower we all have, and how you can use them to automatically achieve your goals. Listen in, and you’ll learn why willpower and motivation are mostly worthless, and what you can use instead, why we make big progress right after we set a goal or resolution, but then fade, how to use "triggers" and design your environment to form habits easily, and how to decide which habits to focus on first.
On today's podcast, I'm thrilled to interview Sarah Peck about a swim adventure that provided hundreds with drinking water, how to navigate the achievement dance, and why understanding what you're feeling could be the key to eating well. "Deciding is powerful. It is terrifying. It is beautiful. Kill something today. Cut it out. Drop it. Remove it. Make clarity in choosing, by saying No to the part you don’t want. Say Yes to the things you want to keep. Do something. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin now.”
On today's podcast, I'm honored to interview Kamal Ravikant. He's the author of two awesome books - Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It and Live Your Truth. What's awesome about Kamal's writing is that he's vulnerable and authentic enough to share some really raw and profound truths that I think lots of us need to hear. "We don't stumble accidentally into an amazing life. It takes a conscious commitment to figuring out what we stand for - finding our truth. It begins by looking inside ourselves, because when it rises from within, we have no choice but to express it, to live it. That is when magic happens."
