EP114 First, Fix You. Second, Dream Big.
In this episode, I share about how I knew I needed to fix myself before I could work towards achieving my big, beautiful dreams.
KC: Welcome to The Business of Life Podcast. My name is Keith Callahan, your host. Today I want to talk about goal setting and it’s totally different. It’s just a different topic than how I would normally talk about goal setting.
So a lot of us will see and hear about goal setting and you got to set these big, beautiful goals and this vision and this vision for your life, and all these things that you want to accomplish.
I remember when I was in a – I was with a group of friends. We were talking about goal setting and talking about all these things. I’ve always had this ability to dream big. I’ve always had this ability to know that I was put on this earth to do big things, to accomplish big things, to make a difference, to make an impact.
But I also knew deep down in my heart that I was broken and a lot of us have these big dreams. We have these big visions. But we have to get ourselves on stable ground. We have to get out of whatever type of avalanche it is that is burying us right now, because we can’t go where we want to go. We can’t live out those big, beautiful, bold dreams until we actually get ourselves on solid ground and the avalanche for you, it could be mental. It could be emotional. It could be physical. It could be financial. It could be spiritual.
But for some of us, the problem isn’t our ability to dream big. The problem is to face reality, that you got some work to do, to get yourself on solid ground, to get solid roots down, to get stable, to get firm in who you are and where you want to go.
For me this was tough. This was like I had to go through and I had to get a therapist. I did a bunch of work with our spiritual community and I had these big, beautiful dreams of being a mentor, a leader, of building big businesses, of living a certain life.
But the reality of it was that I had to really take care of me first. I had to focus on who I was becoming. Write that down. You’ve probably heard that from me before. If you’re in your car, pull over. Write that down. This is good stuff.
I had to focus on who I was becoming, not what I was getting or what I was accomplishing. I had to do all that first and to be honest with you, that’s what I still do now.
Who am I becoming? Not what am I getting or what am I accomplishing. What awards am I getting? What recognition am I getting? What income am I getting? How am I getting it?
You’re going to get all that stuff if you focus on who you’re becoming. The goals are awesome. The goals are great. But sometimes, we need to get out from underneath the avalanche before we can start building the beauty, because some of us try to go from zero to 60 without taking steps.
In life, we have to take steps. We have to take the steps up the ladder. There is no easy way. There is no quick fix button. There is no easy button.
So whatever it is that you’re looking to do in life, make sure you’re starting from a stable, solid place. If you’re not, you get yourself to that stable, solid place, so then you can build. Make sense?
All right. Have a beautiful, beautiful day. See you on the next episode.
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.
