EP115 It’s Not What You Do But How You Do It
In this episode, I encourage you to continue along your path while keeping love, compassion, discipline, fortitude, and much humility as your focus.
KC: Welcome to The Business of Life Podcast. My name is Keith Callahan, your host. And today I want to talk to you about it’s not what you do. But it’s how you do it.
One of the beautiful things about doing this podcast is I’m able to really anchor in and reaffirm things for myself that I’m always focusing on and always working on. One of those is I can easily get like distracted and I can just get to the point where I don’t focus on the right stuff. It’s like this thing and that thing and this thing and that thing. My mind is sort of all over the place sometimes.
One of the things that I always use to bring me back to re-center myself and something that I’m working with right now is the principle of, “It’s not what you do, but it’s how you do it.”
Let me give you an example of this. I remember when I was first looking for a spiritual path. One of my spiritual teachers or a mentor of mine, woman actually, she had said – it’s so funny. I said like a woman actually. Like, oh, imagine that. A woman. Most of my mentors are men because I’m a dude and I get male mentors. But yeah, this was a female mentor of mine and she had told me that it doesn’t matter which spiritual path you choose. It just matters that you choose one and you do it 100 percent.
So it doesn’t matter what you do. It matters how you do it, right? Sometimes we get caught up and we’re thinking, now, we got to find our calling. We got to find the thing that’s right for us. We got to find this. We got to find that. That’s OK. I’m not saying that we shouldn’t do that. But always remember the principle. It doesn’t matter what you do. It matters how you do it.
So even if you’re in a waiting period, even if you’re in a transition period or you’re in a start-up period, or you’re in an exit period, it doesn’t matter what you do. It matters how you do it.
The how is doing it with love, doing it with compassion, doing it with discipline, doing it with fortitude, being humble. Giving it 100 percent. It doesn’t matter what you do. It matters how you do it.
Here in the United States, we’re the richest country in the world and we have the highest or one of the highest – I don’t really study exact stats. But the deal is that we have everything we want and we’re not a happy society.
We can go to some Third World countries who don’t even have running water, don’t even have plumbing, don’t even have electricity. But they’re insanely happy, because it doesn’t matter what you’re doing. It matters how you’re doing it.
Are you doing it humbly? Are you doing it with an attitude of gratitude? Are you in service to God or whatever word you use for that?
Have a beautiful day. See you on the next episode and 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.
