Day 16: How to Stop Being a Meaning Making Machine

Humans are great at being meaning making machines – and that’s a not a good thing by the way!

I credit my recent experience at Landmark Forum to this video topic because it totally opened my mind to how I create meaning out of events.

I learned that you and I are meaning making machines, simply put, any time an event occurs, rather than just viewing it as an event that happened, we attach all sorts of meaning to it.

There’s a real danger in doing that and telling ourselves stories about what this means.

We start to take this on as our identity. It then affects our behaviour, our beliefs and our attitudes.

I share examples of making meaning out of everything in this video and why you and I need to stop doing this now!

Day 15: How to Start Forming Great Habits and Track Them

I’m all about creating great habits and rituals.

Yet throughout my life I’ve had periods of doing this super well and consistently and in other areas more sporadically.

I read my friend James Clear Atomic Habits book last year (NYTimes Bestseller for great reason) where he talks about the power of creating small daily habits that leads to big leaps and changes.

How I use habit stacking to start my morning off right

Atomic Habits by James Clear

This year I’ve been using his Clear Habits Journal to track my habits every single day and it’s really surprised me – plus it’s quite addictive.

In just 21 days we can form a habit but I believe losing bad habits takes longer and the trick is to replace them with the good ones you want to keep.

I shared more about this and the ha it tracker in my Day 15 video.

Day 14: Why it is so Important to Take Time Out

Why is it so important to create more freedom in business and adventure in life?

For those of you have read my Suitcase Entrepreneur book that is the tagline and my philosophy for life that I live by.

Taking time out during your work day to just be, relax, read, paint, get out in nature, or do something completely unrelated to work has been PROVEN to have profound benefits.

It increases your creativity, focus and energy among many other benefits.

Ironically, last year I put too much focus on work, and while I did use my triathlon training to get out and about all over the country in amazing places, what I lacked was pure time out.

Time out to just chill, relax, recharge or adventure and it showed after a full year, I nearly burned out!

Never again. Back to living and breathing what I preach and KNOW has profound benefits on your life and gives you more freedom.

Day 14 is shot at Patuna Chasm, New Zealand where Ruby, Joni and I hiked and ‘swam’ in the river for 3 hours of pure joy and great conversation!

You don’t need to go on a hike to achieve more balance, creativity and joy in your life, little moments of freedom and free time everyday, add up to whole new you and way of living life.

Day 13: Become a Leading Learner not an Expert

I’m a BIG fan of showing up as a Leading Learner versus being labeled as an expert.

So what’s the difference and why can it help you immensely to become a Leading Learner?

An expert is someone with huge depth of knowledge and understanding of a niche topic, that they’ve studied and applied for years, if not decades.

It takes a long time to get this status and is quite the achievement.

A Leading Learner however is you and me.

Someone who LOVES learning and as they learn and apply, they share the results and teach others.

In that way you’re just a few steps ahead of everyone else, but you’re willing to share what you know as you learn it so others can use this valuable information to leap frog to where you are.

It means you don’t have to worry about knowing all the answers, or feeling like a fraud or imposter.

You just learn, grow, apply, implement, teach – rinse and repeat.

There’s a wise saying that we teach what we most need to learn.

I’ve gone deep into all sorts of areas and learned amazing skills over the years by showing up as a student first, teacher second.

It’s served me well to be an expert in several areas now – because I never stopped learning or upskilling.

In this video I share why it’s so important in this day and age of getting paid to be YOU and making sure you remain relevant in the future of work.

How To Use Virtual Summits To Design Your Ideal Lifestyle Business

What if I told you that there is a business model that would let you design your ideal lifestyle business.

That can dramatically grow your email list, build a tribe of people who love what you say and allow you to setup a funnel that brings in tens of thousands of dollars with products and courses and that you can do it based around living your dream lifestyle.

Does that sound to good to be true?

Well according to Mitch Asser it’s not. Mitch’s story is the perfect example of how anybody can overcome the obstacles in their life and achieve anything they set their mind to.

Before he broke through to build multiple successful online businesses, he had to overcome a lot of adversity. From abusing drugs and alcohol as a teenager, to losing tens of thousands of dollars trying to figure all this ‘make money online’ stuff out.

Fast forward a few short years he built and sold a multi 6-figure natural health company from the ground up. He used many growth hacking methods to go from a following of 0 to over 60,000 people and over 3,000 customers in just 3 short years.

A lot of his success has come from online virtual summits. In fact, Mitch has delivered or been a part of more online virtual summits than almost anyone in the world!

He has been on the front-lines of direct response digital marketing for over 4 years. Through his work on his own businesses and his clients he’s been able to help generate more than 250,000 highly qualified leads resulting in over $5 Million in revenue.

This is the model that I’m referring to in this episode of the Untapped podcast, and my interview with Mitch might just blow your mind wide open to the possibilities that lie before you using virtual summits.

In this episode, Mitch reveals:

  • How Mitch is earning a great living doing what he loves, while living in a freedom camper
  • What’s appealing about virtual summits that we can all tap into
  • His step by step guide to creating a virtual summit
  • Mitch’s thoughts on virtual summits with onerous promotional requirements
  • The realities of hosting a virtual summit
  • The key aspects to summit success

Day 12: Where Can You Invest in Yourself

This year I made a pact with myself to invest up to $25,000 in me.

My personal growth, business growth, relationship growth – several areas of my life that I wanted to grow in.

It all started from looking into investing in some high level masterminds that had that price tag.

Then I stepped back and thought about what else could I invest that would help me grow and expand, for that amount of money.

For a start that amount of money in US$ is a deposit on a house! Plus there’s a bunch of ways in which I could spend and invest it that would get me amazing results.

This sparked a whole lot awesome adventures looking into events, conferences, workshops, retreats and courses that would be worthwhile to invest in.

I know every time I have invested in myself, the return on that investment has been so well worth it, yet I’ve not done this for a while, so 2020 is my year.

I speak to some of the things I’ve invested in, in this video.

Now I’d love to know where you’ve been holding back, playing small or not believing you’re worthy of having in the comments.

This is important. Growth happens at the edges when you push, challenge and learn.

Day 11: Weed Out Your Negative Thoughts to Make Way for the Positive

Did you know we humans have 60,000 thoughts a day. A day!

What’s more, research shows that most of those are negative thoughts.

In his book ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari’, Robin Sharma refers to negative thoughts as weeds that are growing so fast they’re taking over your mind.

I’ve definitely been experiencing more and more of that recently, and then I realised I’d not been doing a good job of getting in my mind and pulling out all the weeds, as fast as they come up.

As a result I was allowing these weeds (negative thoughts) to dominate my mind, versus beautiful, positive and abundant thoughts (flowers) that could blossom.

The mind is a place to be nurtured and designed by you.

The more we clean up our garden so to speak, and remove all those weeds, the more we can fill our mind with the thoughts and visions for our best possible life.

We also need to carefully guard our mind and make sure we control the negative thoughts (weeds) so they get removed as quickly as possible, to make way for the reality we want.

This is reinforced by this excellent video interview with Dr Joe Dipenza on why we get stuck in these negative, recurring patterns and thoughts.

It’s a must watch and only 13 minutes and will give you many ah-ha moments.

If you want to change your life it starts with changing your thoughts, and Joe recommends meditation as the first step to all of this.

I’m on a mission this year, it’s one of my goals in fact, to deepen my practice and understanding of meditation. 

I’m that determined to regain control of my mind and fill it with the vision I have for my life and work, so that it becomes my new reality.

Day 10: How to Choose the Most Productive Workspace for you

Is there such a thing as the most productive workspace for you?

Heck yeah there is. First off you need to ask yourself a few questions to figure it out.

Do you prefer to work from home, an office, a coworking space or a cafe?

Where are you actually most effective?

Where you do your best work from and why that is?

I’ve long been a fan of working from trains, planes, airports and cafes and coworking spaces.

There’s something about the buzz and energy of having people around that allows me to actually focus and be super productive.

Yet when I’m doing podcast interviews or videos that’s not an ideal set up.

So that’s when a dedicated office or working from home is best.

In this video I share the pros and cons of both and also what things you need to consider to get your best work done and work in the right place for you!

Day 9: The Benefits of Daily Yoga (with Adrienne)

I’m a HUGE fan of yoga. I feel like a million dollars every time I roll my mat up after a session.

Yet I recall when I did my first session back in my early 20s, that I thought it was too slow for my liking (back when I was an aerobics and strengths junkie doing high energy classes).

But I recall coming away from that class feeling really calm and grounded and quite surprised at how I enjoyed it.

20 years later and I’ve gone on to continue to adopt yoga into my lifestyle more and more, and in 2020 I’m committing to daily yoga, one month at a time.

These days I can’t imagine not waking up to do my morning yoga ritual, with Adrienne or my own flow session.

There are so many benefits of yoga including:

✅increased flexibility.

✅increased muscle strength and tone.

✅improved respiration, energy and vitality.

✅maintaining a balanced metabolism.

✅weight reduction.

✅cardio and circulatory health.

✅improved athletic performance.

✅protection from injury.

But there’s one that I mention in this video that is the most important, in my opinion to YOU that makes Yoga transformative.

I highly recommend my fave guide Adrienne for free at home yoga.

Day 8: Dropping Into Fear and Why That’s a Good Thing

Do you have a creative dream but you’ve been letting fear hold you back?

I know I have. My next book idea has been bubbling away and yet I’ve done nothing towards making it happen.

Not a book proposal, no brainstorm of the structure and definitely no writing.

It’s all been swirling around inside my head which is a pointless place for it to remain, because no one can read my mind!

For me it’s because having written and published two No #1 Bestselling books and being picked up by a big name publisher to republish my first one, I know exactly what it takes to birth a book.

I know how much hard work is involved and what I need to do to make it happen – and it has been making me put this off before I’ve even begun.

But in a session on resistance and fear at the Enspiral Retreat, I realized that that was actually a story I’ve been telling myself and that I need to reframe.

I can make the process as easy and joyous as I wish.

What’s more I can focus on the why of this book and why it needs to get out of my head and be written.

The method our friend Katie Grenier shared with us to do this, and it’s one I’ve done for my own clients too and as part of Josh and my Life Pilot process is a combination of:

The 5 Whys and

Dropping into Fear.

So in this video I share the latter one and suggest you use this method for yourself.

It’s really powerful and takes just a couple of minutes to dissipate or crush your fear.

What you’re left with the sheer joy and excitement of going ahead with your creative dream. Do it now!
