KC:  Welcome to The Business of Life Podcast. My name is Keith Callahan, your host. And today, we’re talking about the external triggers that advise us. Those external triggers that are advisers of internal work that we need to do.

So we’re in a relationship or we have this, a boss at work or a person that we interact with. And every time we interact with them, literally we can feel this anger or anxiety or resentment or just we cannot stand talking to this person. That person is an adviser to you for internal work that needs to be done. So we always want to– we always think or check this out, we have a fear something, a fear of heights, a fear of flying, a fear of speaking in public, a fear of whatever. It’s an external trigger. It’s an adviser to something that’s going on inside.

We become empowered in life when we stop thinking that the external things or the problem and start realizing that external things were the mirror. They’re the mirror advising us. They’re the mirror teaching us the intern– that the mirror is showing us the internal work that we need to do. Super simple. Make the shift if you haven’t done it already to knowing that it’s never what’s going on on the outside. What’s going on on the outside is just a mirror of what’s going on on the inside.

What’s going on on the outside is being portrayed by the lens that you view the world. We don’t need to change the world, we change the lens. We change the lens by changing the way we think, by changing the way we perceive… by changing the way that we think, we perceive, yeah. I guess that’s it. That’s really that’s the two things.

So remember I’m going to keep this one super simple. When the outside triggers our coming, it’s really just a teacher. It’s showing you when the outside influences our coming. It’s triggering internal work that you can do.

All right? 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.
