“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” Viktor E. Frankl Today's Mind-Bullet Monday centers around the concept of — when faced with a heated, fearful or difficult situation — the human "fight or flight" response is triggered.

S4-21: How To Stop Overwhelm

Today's FAF (Frequently Asked Friday): "How can I feel less overwhelmed?" In this crazy world of stimulus, demand, distraction and stress, too many of us are living a diminished quality of life by simple being overwhelmed. MG addresses this question from a few different angles, but the main bullet point is this: If at any point we feel overwhelmed, it simply means we don't know what our Number One Priority is. Think of a Days of Our Lives-style timer with sands flowing through an...

S4-19: Desire Level 11!

"The starting point of all achievement is desire!" ~Napoleon Hill In this episode MG suggests that there is a very simple way to know if you REALLY WANT IT (your goal) BADLY ENOUGH. It's an extremely simple litmus test. A similar message was covered in a prior episode, "What do you really want?" When you want something badly enough you'll always find a way. In fact, one of MG's favorite sayings is "Where there is a will, there is a way!" Therefore, desire and determination take...

S4-15: What's the Best Way to Build a Good Habit?

"Good habits happen when planned; bad habits happen on their own." ~Grunburg Today's FAF (Frequently Asked Friday) "What's the best way to form (or build) a good habit?" MG tackles this question by dispelling some very popular misinformation on the internet mostly directed at something known within psychology as the "habit loop" or, Cue, Routine, Reward. Cue, Routine, Reward does little, if anything, as a process or methodology to help someone to develop a good, positive habit and here...

S4-13: No Prophet in His Hometown

"Truly I tell you," he continued, "no prophet is accepted in his hometown." Luke 4:24 Variations include: "Only in his own home and hometown is a prophet without honor." "I tell you this," Jesus added, "prophets are never welcomed in their hometown. Think about the term "prophet" perhaps as just another word for teacher or maybe even thought-leader.

S4-11: Fred Gratzon: The Lazy Way to Success

"You can recognize truth by its beauty and simplicity." ~Dr. Richard Feynman “I am lazy and anti-authoritarian. I have a short attention span, a shorter memory, and no intellect. I am devoid of marketable skills and I despise routine.

Fortunately, these are ideal qualifications for an entrepreneur. ”...

"All men's miseries derive from not being able to sit in a quiet room alone." ~Blaise Pascal How over-stimulated are you? Most people don't know and here's how to find out, just try to meditate.
