EP142 The Benefits of Having a Single-Minded Focus
In this episode, I hope to help you simplify and clarify your life and mind by implementing a single-minded focus to all you do.
KC: Welcome to The Business of Life Podcast. My name is Keith Callahan, your host. Today, I want to talk to you about having a single-minded focus in your life and it’s funny. I’m getting ready to record this and I just wanted to – sometimes it’s all formal recording with these things.
So I just wanted to say what’s up? How are you? Yeah, it’s an honor to be able to do these podcasts and to have you tuning in and listening and yeah. So what’s up? Happy day, whatever day you’re listening to this on and single-minded focus.
So it’s funny. I’m talking about single-minded focus and I’m getting distracted during my single-minded focus podcast. So one of the things that I’ve really started doing as I’ve gotten older and wiser and more mature, right? But no, I feel like when I was younger, I would be all over the place and I was just like mad scrambling to get things done, mad scrambling with my focus and trying to do a million different things in the course of a year.
Now I really focus in on one thing. For example, the recording of this is we’re finishing up 2016 and coming into 2017 and for 2016, for me, it was two words and it was kind of for me and for my family. It was simplify and stabilize.
Everything about the year was around simplifying and stabilizing, simplifying and stabilizing. When decisions were to be made within our family or within my business, I was able to ask the question, “Does this help us to simplify and stabilize things?” and it was sort of – it was with personal finances. It was with the way we were parenting our kids. It was with the business that I have and yeah, everything was around simplifying and stabilizing. It was amazing this year. It was amazing how productive I was, how much we got done, and how much more peace really came into my life with that. Really clarity and lack of decision fatigue because the whole entire year was about that and I’m getting ready putting in my – they’re really power words. Like that’s what I focus on and for 2017, the words are coming in like power, growth, stuff like that.
For me, power means like taking back personal power, like really working on being empowered and focused. So the final words haven’t come into play for 2017. But yeah, I’m looking at like power, empowered, focus, discipline, growth and we will see how it pans out. It won’t be that many words. It will pan down to something simple like simplify and stabilize.
So I just wanted to share that with you wherever you are on your journey. Maybe it’s what you’re focusing on for the month. Maybe it’s what you’re focusing on for the day. For me, I really like to do it for the year. Yeah. So I just wanted to share that and in your journey, in your life, keep it simple and keep it focused on one or two things that you’re working on at a time.
All right. Have a beautiful, beautiful day. We will 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.
