Preston’s Ninja Toolbox of Goodness
The 3 G’s
A lot of people believe they practice gratitude, which is awesome but are they grateful for the bad also? I mean, are you grateful for divorce, for losing your job, for your sick child, grateful for it all?
Let me explain – grateful for learnings during that marriage, grateful for the new opportunities you can focus on now that you have more free time and grateful that you can utilize the advanced medical care we now have to help your child heal. When you’re grateful for the things that most people run away from, the universe gives you more of what you want.
From a scientific standpoint, it’s all energy or consciousness and when you raise your consciousness, everything else HAS to move with you or drop off. Moving into an attitude of gratitude, you automatically move into a vibratory state where everything around you becomes friendly in some sense.
In our society, we talk about ‘the cup half full, half empty’ metaphor, this ‘G’ is all about just being grateful for the cup. So many people just want the good stuff, but if you can be grateful for the stuff that is ugly and see the beauty in it, then the universe will provide more.
The key to living is giving! When I look back on my life and the times I was in complete alignment with who I really am, I was focusing outward, I was moving from a place of service. Looking at Oprah for example, the richest woman in the world, she is addicted to the Law of Circulation (giving). She understands that you can’t just ‘get money and keep it‘, you need to circulate it in order for things to keep moving and growing.
When we’re moving from a mindset of ‘how can I serve?’, the game totally changes.
If anyone were to walk outside of their house right now and want to grow a garden, they would find various hard places – rocks, weeds, dry soil, debris, trash.Those hard places would need to be cleaned up and worked on in order for you to start growing your garden. The condition of the garden determines the productivity of the seeds you plant.
So when the acorn is ready to be a grand oak tree but the soil isn’t ready (removed of trash, debris, weeds and toxins) the tree will never grow to it’s highest heights.
To me, the soul of a person wants to grow to it’s full potential, it wants the be the best version of itself. You wouldn’t be listening to this podcast or reading this article if that statement didn’t resonate with you.
When it comes to growth, it’s all about moving old philosophies, belief systems, attitudes and habits out of your garden (mind) so you can grow to your full potential.
4 Ways YOU Can Create Powerful Habits – James Clear
Author and habits expert James Clear says if you want to make big changes, first you have to think small. His new book, “Atomic Habits,” zeroes in on the idea that small adjustments add up to larger changes over time.
What Are Habits?
Let’s define habits. Habits are the small decisions you make and actions you perform every day. According to researchers at Duke University, habits account for about 40 percent of our behaviors on any given day.
Your life today is essentially the sum of your habits. How in shape or out of shape you are? A result of your habits. How happy or unhappy you are? A result of your habits. How successful or unsuccessful you are? A result of your habits.
What you repeatedly do (i.e. what you spend time thinking about and doing each day) ultimately forms the person you are, the things you believe, and the personality that you portray. Everything I write about – from procrastination and productivity to strength and nutrition – starts with better habits. When you learn to transform your habits, you can transform your life.
Listen to the full podcast interview below to learn the ways that James Clear has Mastered his Habits!
As James Clear says:
Becoming better is not simply a matter of willpower or work ethic. It’s also a matter of strategy. What people assume is a lack of willpower or an unwillingness to change is often a consequence of trying to build good habits in bad environments.
- If you are trying to read more books, don’t do it in a room filled with video games, Netflix, and a television. Move to a less distracting environment.
- If you’re very overweight, don’t try to follow a workout program for college athletes. You can get there eventually, but that’s not a battle you need to fight right now. Start with a manageable change.
- If you’re surrounded by people who tear down your goals, then work on your projects in a different location or reach out to like-minded people.
- If you’re trying to stick to a writing habit when your kids are home from school and your house is in chaos, then work on it at a different time. Switch to a time of less resistance.
Build your habits where it is easy to do so. Re-define the situation. Create a game where the odds are stacked in your favor.
It sounds simple, but how often do you find yourself fighting difficult battles and ignoring easy ones? There is plenty of time to fight the difficult battles. Win the easy battles first.
The smartest path is to improvement is the one of least resistance. Fight battles you are destined to win.
