Have you taken any time to be grateful today?

 

When we think about forming power habits, we often think about doing something that will improve our productivity or health. We rarely consider the transformative power of mindset habits, and one of the most powerful habits is gratitude. That may seem like an easy or trivial thing, but in practice, embodying a state of gratitude every day is both surprisingly challenging and significant.

 

Our guest John Israel, founder of The Mr. Thank You Project and author of The Mr. Thank You Project, experienced an epiphany: if he wanted to make a huge, positive impact on the world, he had to start by doing just ONE thing to express his gratitude, every day. This ONE habit, over time, has truly unleashed something extraordinary, and in this episode, we invite you to become a part of it.

 

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [9:30] How to form a keystone habit for embodying gratitude
  • [16:40] How to manage your time so that you don’t fail a 66-day (or 365-day) challenge
  • [20:45] How to be grateful when you don’t want to be
  • [36:00] Why you should consider doing this 66-day challenge

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Out of everything you’ve heard in this episode, what’s the ONE thing you can do that will make everything else easier or unnecessary?

 

Get clear on that ONE thing, block it out in your calendar, and then protect it. Your life of gratitude starts there.

Have you ever felt like you desperately want your situation to change... but no matter how hard you work, you just feel like you’re drowning?

 

There are these periods of our lives when, no matter how much action we take, we feel overwhelmed, and we just wish that we could take back our lives. We’re ambitious, we’re driven, but that just doesn’t feel like enough to get any forward momentum. This is especially true when we have kids, because honoring work commitments and being present as a parent is a monumentally difficult task for even the most extraordinary people.

 

That was how Casey Gocel felt, until she started living The ONE Thing. In this episode, Casey shares the story of how she struggled to strike a counterbalance in her life after having her first child – and how things started to change when she started doing just ONE thing differently; ONE thing that’s truly made everything else in her world easier or unnecessary.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [5:00] What happens when you take a hard and honest look at your calendar
  • [11:30] The ONE Thing that can help you reclaim your calendar and your time
  • [14:00] How to say no
  • [18:55] How you can leverage accountability and delegation to help you stick to your most important tasks
  • [25:45] What happens when your productivity and transformation inspires other people to take note

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Wherever you are, whatever you are dealing with in your life, understand that it doesn’t have to be that way. You can make amazing changes in your life – and it doesn’t have to take that long!

 

The path to getting everything you want is to get ONE thing at a time. So start by identifying the ONE thing that will make everything else easier or unnecessary, and start focusing on that lead domino until it falls. Over time, as you can hear in this episode, it truly leads to extraordinary results (as long as you can overcome the distractions that try to steal your focus).

The ONE thing that makes hiring easier or unnecessary...

 

Hiring is challenging, but there is ONE place you can go where hiring is simple, fast, and smart – and that place is ZipRecruiter.com/ONEthing. Most of us who are in a hiring position would love to always be getting into relationships with top talent, but there’s so many other priorities that compete for our time. That’s what we love about ZipRecruiter: they find the right job candidates for you, and 80 percent of employers who post a job get a qualified candidate in just one day.

Do you ever struggle living the principles of The ONE Thing?

 

We know that there’s a surprisingly simple truth behind extraordinary results – but simple doesn’t mean easy. It’s not easy to maintain clarity on Your ONE Thing. It’s not easy to get Your ONE Thing done before you do anything else. It’s not easy to honor your time blocks and shut down every distraction that comes up. So what does it really take to overcome that hurdle and start living Your ONE Thing consistently?

 

To helps us answer that question, we are joined by Hal Elrod, author of the international bestseller The Miracle Morning and the brand-new book The Miracle Equation: The Two Decisions That Move Your Biggest Goals from Possible, to Probable, to Inevitable.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [2:45] What is a miracle?
  • [8:00] The real purpose of a goal
  • [16:30] How to achieve tangible, measurable miracles
  • [21:35] Making the decision to have unwavering faith
  • [40:00] ONE question you need to ask yourself if you are struggling to live The ONE Thing

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

If you could online achieve ONE goal this year, what would mean the most to you?

 

Once you understand what that goal is, ask yourself, what’s the ONE thing you can do that will make everything else easier or unnecessary?

 

You don’t earn the right to do anything else until you find an answer, and with it, the two-inch domino you can knock down. Keep asking that question until you know, for certain, you have identified the correct two-inch domino.

 

Then you need to apply The Miracle Equation.

 

If you want some additional guidance on your journey, we highly recommend ordering your copy of The Miracle Equation: The Two Decisions That Move Your Biggest Goals from Possible, to Probable, to Inevitable. You will get an additional $1,347 in bonuses (including a 6-week live online training with Hal) if you order the book in the launch period, so don’t miss out.

Are you living a life by default or by design?

 

Many of us are living a life by default. We wake up, check social media, react to what we see, head into the office, check email, react, sit in meetings, get up, check email, react, and then go to the next meeting – and this repeats day after day after day! We feel so busy, and we wonder why we don’t get anything done.

 

When you live a life by default, you just get what you get – but when you life a life by design, you are working towards the goals you want with intention and a strategy. Today’s guest has travelled down a long and difficult road, but there’s ONE thing thing that allowed him to turn his failures into his success: a clear vision. In this episode, we’re going to learn how Brian Scudamore, CEO of O2E Brands and author of WTF?! (Willing to Fail), found the keys to success in his failures, ultimately growing a $400M+ business without sacrificing time with the people who matter most.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [9:20] What your life looks like when you life a life by design
  • [14:00] How you can start adopting the mindset that everything doesn’t matter equally
  • [16:40] How to listen to your failures
  • [22:00] How you can make time to cast a vision when you’re so busy working on your business
  • [33:50] What you can to do help the people you lead create a life, not a living
  • [37:00] Why you need to fall in love with your vision

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Brian tells us that the ONE thing that will make creating a life – not a living – easier or unnecessary is casting that vivid vision.

 

This isn’t easy. Often, we run into a wall of “I don’t knows,” and it takes both big questions and support to get over past that wall.

 

If you are looking for guidance, we recommend you check out The ONE Thing Goal Setting Master Course so that you can, from your hope, have a whole retreat facilitated for you. We will teach you the questions you need to ask to push past that wall, and then once you have your vision, we will help you create the goals that will get you there.

 

If you already have your vision, but you are struggling with identifying your ONE thing so that you stay aligned with your vision every day, check out The ONE Thing Membership. This community exists to support each member form a stronger relationship with their goals; it’s a community of high-achievers and, together, we’re going to go places.
