EP124 My Words of the Year: Faith, Enthusiasm, and Action
In this episode, I discuss my Words of the Year – for this year and every year. These 3 words have been meditated on, prayed on, and lived.
KC: Welcome to The Business of Life Podcast. My name is Keith Callahan, your host.
And this morning, I want to talk to you about three words that I really meditated on, prayed on and lived for about two years.
And it was a time when I was making a huge change in my life. It was a time when I was getting my– I was getting a business with Beachbody. So, if you don’t know, I work as a Beachbody coach. That’s where the majority of our family’s income comes from. And I was starting to build that business. And it’s a business that’s really unlike anything else I had ever done. And the three words that I was focused then on they had come to a friend of mine, someone who works with me in Beachbody and someone who’s also the chief of the spiritual community that I follow.
And those three words were faith, enthusiasm and action. And I believe that each one of us– each one of us if we can get a theme for the year, something really simple to focusing on. And for me, it was those three words. It was faith, having faith that you’re on the right path. Because there are so many times that your mind is going to trick you. Your mind is going to tell you one thing or another. Your mind is going to tell you that it’s too hard, that it’s not right, that you should give up.
But once you get that intuition, that message that you’re doing the right thing that you’re on the right path, that’s only going to come in the beginning. Then you have to have faith to carry it through. So whenever you’re doing something, whenever you’re doing even in your entire life, having faith to just live this life, right? Having faith to do the day by day, walking your walk with faith.
And then enthusiasm is just being enthusiastic, being excited, being eager, being anticipatory or anticipating what is coming, doing things enthusiastically. And we’ve all seen this, right? Like if you watch sports, there are certain players– I’m a Patriots fan and probably it’s either you’re a Patriots fan or you hate the Patriots, right? But I love watching Tom Brady and how enthusiastically he plays, putting is all into the game. So, going about your day, going about your actions, going about your things enthusiastically.
And then action. Action was the third one. So many times, we want to do things, we want to make change. We want to live a certain way. And there’s this simple fact that it’s not thinking about it, it’s doing it and being it. We don’t need another plan. We don’t need another this. We don’t need another that. We just need to take action. And if we take action with faith and we take it enthusiastically, hoo! It’s beautiful.
So there you go. Faith, enthusiasm and action. How beautiful would things be of you had that deep faith, that unwavering faith if you went about everything enthusiastically and if you took the action that actually needed to be taken.
Have a beautiful, beautiful day. We’ll 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.
ANNOUNCER: Thank you for listening to the Business of Life Podcast. Apply what you learned today and you’ll be one step closer to creating the life you love to live.
