EP144 The Answers You Seek Are Not In Books
Too often, we think we need to turn to books to find the answers we seek, when what we actually need to do is look within ourselves.
Welcome to The Business of Life Podcast. My name is Keith Callahan, your host, and here we go. Another day, another message, another thing that I’m learning, that I’m reminding myself of and that I want to share with you and the piece that I want to share with you is the answer to your questions is not usually found in a book.
The true answer to the questions, the true answer to the thing that you’re looking to change, that you’re looking to do, the direction that you’re looking to go in, the problem that you’re struggling with, it’s not found in a book. Sometimes we can read books and they might spur ideas. I really feel like books are there for when we’re stuck, to help us spur ideas. But the real answers come from within. The real answers come when you have the ability to quiet your mind. Quiet your mind, it sounds so simple, right?
Real answers come when you have the ability to get into that space, to get into that other brain, to get into that other realm with the analytical realm and then we have the spiritual realm. We have the analytical realm and then we have the spiritual or the artist realm, that creative realm, the child realm.
Usually things that we’re struggling with, they can’t be solved in the analytical realm and they have to be answered in that other realm and to get into that other realm, sometimes we get in there because we’ve tried so hard. We’ve banged our head against the wall and finally, we get down to our knees when we say, “Oh god, help us!”
Sometimes we get in there through meditation. Sometimes we get in there through prayer. Sometimes we get in there through yoga or sometimes we get in there through writing. Sometimes we get in there through exercise.
The answers to the questions that we have are always inside of us. It’s something that we have to stir up, something that we remember. So I just wanted to share that. I use books and I’m a very, very avid reader. For me, the books are always something to – unless it’s like a very specific thing that I’m learning how to do. But if it’s something I’m looking to figure out or I’m trying to work through, usually I’m reading books and they stir things from inside. It helps me to stir things from inside. But that’s where the real answers are.
Does that make sense? Makes sense to me. All right. I hope you have a beautiful, beautiful day. See you on the next episode. Peace!
KC: Hey, Keith here, and today I have a free gift for you. Listen this free gift is a list of the 12 most influential books that I’ve ever read. These are the books that have helped me to create the mindset, learn the philosophies, learn the skills to really create this big, beautiful, life that we’re living now.
I read a crazy amount of books, I really do. I’ve probably read thousands of books and these are the top 12 books that – they’re the ones that I go to, they’re the ones that I work with over, and over, and over again. They are highlighted, outlined, dog-eared. And I put this list together for you because I want it to be a shortcut.
I don’t want you to have to – you don’t have to go out and read the thousands and thousands of books. These are the 12 that I highly recommend. I have a detailed review for each book, explaining why I recommend them, why I like them, when I worked with them in my life, what part of my life they helped me to improve.
So I put this together for you, and made it super each for you to get this list. All you have to do is send a text to the number 33444 and then in the body of that text, type in “12books” with no space. So that’s the number “12books”. Again, send the text message to the number, address it to 33444 and then type in “12books” as the message and just send that. And that’ll get you setup to receive those top 12 most influential books that have had the biggest impact on my life.
KC: Today’s episode is brought to you by our sister podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. So All About Beachbody Coaching really allows us to do this podcast without having all those annoying commercials in the beginning for you. So All About Beachbody Coaching, the Beachbody business that Amy and I run, actually funds this podcast.
So yes, it does cost money to run this podcast, we do not charge you anything, we don’t throw in commercials or anything like that, it really is, it’s funded by our business and by our other podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. And for me, I’m just eternally grateful for this opportunity because it’s allowed me to really create the life that I love to live.
It’s given me the opportunity to do what I want, when I want, with who I want, and even deeper than that, it’s allowed me to help others to create the same for themselves. It’s allowed me to help hundreds of other people become part time or full time Beachbody coaches, to leave that corporate 9 to 5 job and create passive income in their lives.
And really there’s nothing like that. It’s cool when you have success, it’s so much more rewarding when you help others. So I mention this or a few reasons, the first reason is, that’s actually the way that I work with people and mentor people. I don’t do anything outside of Beachbody coaching because I know that it’s such a powerful life changing tool.
So if you’re curious about working with me, interested in working one-on-one, interested in creating the type of life that you wanna live, I suggest swinging over there. The other reason is, even if somebody’s just curious, like you’ve heard about Beachbody, you know there’s a lot of Beachbody coaches out there. Maybe some of them you get a little annoyed with.
It really dives into what this business is really about, which is life transformation. So if you’re just curious, swing over there. And then the other piece is, if you’re really considering becoming a Beachbody coach, I highly, highly recommend you listen to that first.
Alright, much love guys. Again, that is the All About Beachbody Coaching Podcast, our sister podcast.
