EP96 Mindset Monday –The external event is the trigger for the internal work
In today’s episode of mindset Monday we’re talking about the external event and how it is not the problem but rather the trigger to the internal work.
[00:00:12] KC: Welcome to the Business of Life Podcast. Welcome to Mindset Monday. Keith here, and excited. Excited to be on with you today. Excited to be back after our first little break. So I took a two week break, was down in Falmouth, down in Cape Cod, Massachusetts and was there with the whole family. All the kids, my wife and was just totally present for them, totally with them the entire time. You know, I have to be honest, it was a little bit of a struggle for me. For me being on vacation with the family and spending that much time just being is always a little bit of work for me. But it was beautiful none the less. Got to have some magical moments with the kids, magical moments with my wife and some family came down and visited with us.
So enough about that. Today we’re talking about the external events in your life. So a lot of times we have things that happen in our life and we think, “Man, wow this happens now and I have – when I do this, this happens. Or if this situation changed, if that situation changed.” And I want to leave you with a little bit of a quote to ponder and meditate on and write about, or do whatever you want with it. But it’s, “The external events in your life are triggers for the internal work that you need to do, that we need to do.”
So again, just elaborating on that a tiny bit, when things happen and we think that we get mad at somebody else, or we get frustrated, or we get challenged by somebody, or something happens in work, something happens with family, something happens with the kids. A beautiful way to look at life and a healing way to look at life, an empowered way to look at it is that the external events are just triggers for internal work that we need to do.
So I’m going to leave you with that. Have a beautiful, beautiful day and we’ll see you on the next episode.
[00:02:32] 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.
[00:04:35] 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.
