EPISODE 147: “ENCORE Episode: The Real Reason You Never Have Enough Time To Do All That You Want To”

January 6, 2021

If you’re like most people you go through your days never having enough time, always playing “catch up” and wondering what you can do differently to get things done, right? If this is you, then you’re going to love this podcast episode because getting everything done that you need to is not about managing your time, it’s about prioritizing your commitments and values. When you know what you value most and what you’re committed to, it’s then easy to understand how you need to prioritize your time. If you don’t know what you’re committed to you don’t know how you’re choosing and when you don’t know how you’re choosing you’re mismanaging your time.

Actually, the reason most people never have enough time is because they manage their day by time, and when you manage your day by time, you’ll never have enough time. Look at your own life and you’ll probably find that to be true. If you want to “catch up” and be productive and get things done then you must start managing your time by commitments and values.

In this episode I discuss:

You're listening to Transform your Life from the Inside Out podcast. And if you've ever said, relative to time, that you don't have enough time, and you're overwhelmed, and you're always chasing hours, and you can't get it done, and maybe you've even said, you know what I wish I could clone myself because I need more of me, then you're going to love this podcast. See, managing your time, effort, and energy, are all about your unconscious paradigms and habits, and not about a clock. And when you start working from there, managing your time becomes very easily. Stay tuned.

Hi, I'm Jim Fortin, and you're about to start Transforming Your Life. from the Inside Out with this podcast. I'm widely considered the leader in Subconscious Transformation. And I've coached super achievers all around the world for over 25 years. Here, you're going to find no rah rah motivation, and no hype. Because this podcast is a combination of Brain Science, Transformational Psychology, and Ancient Wisdom all rolled into one to take your life to levels, you've never thought possible. If you're wanting a lot more in life, to feel better, to heal, to have peace of mind, to feel powerful and alive, and to bring more abundance and prosperity into your life, then this podcast is for you. Because you're going to start learning how to master your mind and evolve your consciousness. And when you do that, anything you want, then becomes possible for you. I'm glad you're here.

Managing Your Time Isn't About The Clock

All right, this is not going to be a time management episode, I'm not going to talk you about time management, and give you processes or tactics or any of that. This episode is about your brain-based habits. It's about your unconscious paradigms. And it's about your unconscious values that drive you. Because see, these are all internal things. And these all drive what you do. And then what people try to do is they try to actually fit their unconscious values and habits and paradigms into a clock. And then like I started this episode with is most people never have enough time. So we're going to and this is going to be not, this is not going to be a really, really long episode. Hopefully, I'm gonna make it a little shorter. But definitely, once you're done with this episode, you'll understand that managing your time is no longer about the clock.

Something else that I want to mention is that one of the biggest traps that a lot of people get into is they manage their time, by circumstance, they manage your time by time, and they manage their time by convenience. What I want you to get, and this is something that I learned from a coach of mine and it was life changing is and you may want to write this down, you hear me say if you're not driving, you know, you may want to write this down. But it's this simple phrase, when I manage my time, by time, I never have enough time.I'll repeat that, when I manage my time by time, I will never have enough time. And the same thing applies to our circumstances and convenience.

When I manage my time by circumstance, I will never have enough time. And when I manage my time by convenience, I will never have enough time. You know, we're not going to get into it this podcast and this episode, but managing our lives by convenience as what most of us do. And then we wonder why we're not getting the outcomes that we want. Alright, so I just said that many of us work by circumstance, here's something else that I want you to understand is that when we work by circumstance, I tell people this all the time. And people they get it, they understand it, but people don't know it. But here's the thing, when we work by circumstance, when you work by circumstance, you repeat your circumstance.

Let me give you a great example of that. Many times people will say things like, you know, Jim, I want to go into your into your coaching programs, but I don't have the money right now. But then I'm right, well, so what so what they're doing here is they're saying, in my circumstance, I don't have the money. So therefore I'm not going to do it. And then what they're not even recognizing is that they're working from their circumstance, they are the person who created their circumstance. And if they never change who they are, they never change their circumstance. So please, this would be a foundational thing that I want you to get. And all the episodes that I put out is that when I work by circumstance, meaning you when I work by circumstance, I repeat my circumstances.

So what that means is if you want to create different things in your life, you can no longer work by circumstance. So big takeaway, it's a bit relative to what we're doing this week. And hopefully, that will be a life changing, you know, thought and paradigm for you. Where we have to start working from is we have to start working from priority, meaning we have to start working from what am I going to make a priority so that I can shift and I can change my life. Notice what I just said about circumstance. If we work from circumstance, what we're also saying is that we're making our circumstance a priority over what it is that we want to create, and do and be and have in life. That's why it's vital that going forward after this podcast, that you start working from priority, meaning what is it that you want to create, and that has to be prioritized?

The biggest mistake that most people make is that they work from short term, low hanging fruit tactics. What I mean by that is people, many people are so busy chasing money and what's right in front of them, which are tactics, low hanging fruit money, as opposed to working from long term strategy. And they manage your time, their time and that whole process. And I have to say that I used to be that same person I used to always look at, okay, I'm going to manage my time this week, and what I'm going to do with it, and this was all unconscious, by the way, and many of you do the same thing is you say I'm going to do XYZ this week. And when you stand back and you look at it, you know what you're doing with your time, every bit of your time is invested in chasing, you know, short term tactics to make you money. And when you do that you will never ever, ever make the amount of money that you can make.

Where we ideally want to work. And you can ask different people and time management experts and blah, blah, blah. But what I've noticed in my own life, where you ideally want to work towards, is you want to work towards looking at a three year strategy, meaning what can I do today to have my business up and running where in the art my life or my health or whatever it is, in three years, also a caveat there, there's no reason to worry or fret or any of that. I'm speaking more in terms of business. And when I say worry, I know some of you listening might have said, Oh my god, three years, I need money now, or I need help. Now. Obviously, I'm talking about focusing on it now. But what I'm looking at also, is what can I do in terms of long term strategy, as opposed to short term tactics to actually create the outcomes that I want to create in life?

Because if you notice when you're working the tactics, which this week is about time, if and you know the allocation of it. Have you noticed that when you're working the short term tactics, you're generally like a dog chasing its tail. I mean, you're running from this, to that, to this to that to this to that, and you never get off the hamster wheel. You know, a great example of that is I used to coach heavily in the real estate industry. I remember this woman she was she told me, she was 55 years old. And she was telling me about how she was building her business, what she was doing. And she was door knocking every day, which by the way, is tedious. I mean,you know, you're literally pounding the pavement beating on people's doors looking for somebody that's looking to, you know, sell their property. And it's a lot of work.

And I said, you know, we're, there's a bigger story here, I'm like, do you have any money saved, etc? You know, do you have investments, and all this kind of stuff. And she's like, no. So what she's doing, she's using all of her time 100% of her time to work a short term tactic of door knocking, as opposed to actually allocating part of her time to look at a long term strategy, so that she doesn't have to door knock anymore. And quite literally, as I said, She's on a hamster wheel. Because every day, it's the same thing over and over and over. And she's caught in the trap. Not only that, she said, She's 55, I'm 54. I don't think 55 is old at all. I tell people 50 is a new 30. However, doesn't she doesn't have any money saved. And this tactic that she's trapped in, literally keeps her trapped and chasing her tail and running every single day doing the same thing over and over and over again.

That's why it's so important that you prioritize. Now what I told her is what I prioritize is what can I do to build a long term strategy, so that in three years, and it can be centered, and I've seen people build one of my clients built a company that does $100 million a year, in four years, but what I'm always looking at, I mean, it could be one year, it could be two year, it could be three years, three years is not the magic number. It's just a number that I work by, is, you know, it can happen a lot quicker. But what I'm telling you is you want to actually prioritize some of your time and your energy and your effort to something that's going to get you bigger long term rewards than chasing your tail every single day.

So the best place for you to work from and to think from in this moment, is what am I committed to? Now the lady does door knocking what she's committed to is short term tactics, but she didn't even recognize she was committed to it. I mean, she didn't get up every day and say, you know what I am? I'm committed to chasing my tail today. I'm committed to chasing business. I'm committed to short term tactics. No, it was completely unconscious. It was habitual, it was unconscious paradigms, and her value system. So a takeaway again, write this down, is what you want to look at is what am I committed to, because whatever you're committed to is what you want to prioritize, and then whatever you prioritize is where you want to invest the most amount of your time, energy and money to get the bigger long term outcomes.

You know, something that we do is I tell people that we're also the biggest liar to ourselves. I see many people say things like, well, I'm committed to my health. Well, many times people aren't committed to their health, I haven't done it a lot of years, I used to be hypnotherapist, and I'd have women come to me and say, Well, I want to lose weight, because I want to be healthy. That's generally not the case. For most people. Most people and especially women want to lose weight. Why? Because they want to be sexy to their husband, or their partner, or they want to let you know, they're going to take family pictures in three months, they want to look better, or they're getting married, or they're going on vacation this summer, and they want to look good in their bathing suit on the beach.

Most of us lie to ourselves about why we think we want the outcomes that we want. But let's take going you know going to the gym, or a health club or diet or whatever, for example, and by the way, diets don't work. That's a whole different episode.But people will say things like, you know what, I want to get healthy, and I want to go to the gym. And what happens because we're talking about time this week is they never go to the gym. And the reason they never go to the gym is because they habituated and they are a person who's in the habit of never going to the gym, or they don't value help as much as they think that they do, or they're not committed to it. So as you can clearly see, it's obvious. It's not about time, it's about what are the habits, the brain based habits? What are the unconscious values? And what are the unconscious paradigms?

That's what you want to look at, which is why I just said, where you really want to work from is what am I committed to? We'll talk more about that in just a moment. I use the word commitment a few times. And I'm you know, I'm certain that I'm going to do an episode on commitment at some point. However, most people want things. And generally, it's an idle wish, or a left brain analytical desire, like I want that house or I want that car. And they never find themselves creating it. And the reason why is because they can't stay committed is because it's not in their identity. As I mentioned before, you know, you might have heard me say before, on another episode or somewhere else is that my dad was an alcoholic. And I don't know if they're related. So I'm going to just give you the example here, but my dad, actually I don't think they are related. It could be that my dad was actually more committed to being an alcoholic than he was anything else. And of course, that's brain based. And, you know, there's chemicals involved and all this kind of stuff. So I'm going to leave that at that there for now.

However, when it comes to commitment, I watched my father never finished anything, ever. I mean, he'd start projects, home projects, whatever, and he would never finish, I can't think of one thing he ever finished. And literally, you know, over the years, I'm like, Well, did dad ever finish it, you know anything. And he never did. So I learned at an unconscious level, which I do not operate from that place anymore, that it's okay to actually want things and not commit to them. And the reason that I tell you that is if I had to guess that probably applies to a lot of you listening right now is that you want things but you don't commit because you've never learned how to commit to things. So just take a look at that. Because as I said a little earlier, we fool ourselves. You know, many times also I see people will say things like, you know, I've wanted to brand new house for 10 years, or I've wanted to start a you know, a new company for seven years, or I've wanted this for have wanted that.

And they always throw in like a lot, you know, three years, five years, whatever. And what I've recognized and they don't recognize is because you're working from the outside, and instead of the inside out, what I've recognized is they don't understand the fundamentals that you're learning here in all these podcast episodes is the BE DO HAVE models, we have to be it on the inside first. So what I'm wanting to drive home for you, it's what I'm wanting you to look at in your own life. Instead of managing your your days and your life by time. Hopefully this is going to reinforce one of the very first episodes that I did is what we have to go back to is “Who do I have to be?” because who you're being will determine exactly how you actually either invest or squander your time.

Something one of my coaches said to me, and I've had coaches literally in my life for over 25 years and one of my coaches phenomenal coach, she said that if you don't know what you're committed to, you don't know how you're choosing.You might want to write that down. If I don't know what I'm committed to. I don't know how I'm choosing. Now let's apply this the time and where you invest time. So let's say for example, I'm going to just use because it's a real life example that just pops into my mind while everything's real life that I talked about, but there's a particular client that I remember this example. He is still I live here in Texas and he actually was in Dallas as well. And we generally have until the last couple of years we generally have very mild winters.

And I remember we were talking about playing golf one afternoon. And I said, Are you going to play golf on Friday? And he said, Nope, he goes, I've got something else I have to do relative to building his business. And in that moment that I recognized because I've watched him build a lot of things, I recognized that if we were going to play golf, that's a matter of us using our time, and where he was working from, as he was working from, I'm more committed to building my business than I am playing golf. However, if he would have actually said, Sure, let's go play golf. What I want to demonstrate here is, let me get back to the phrase, if you don't know what you're committed to, you don't know how you're choosing.

So when I asked him, if he wanted to play golf, he made a choice. And his choice was Nope, I'm going to build my business, because he knew what he was committed to. So I also want you to look at where that plays out in your own life. Do people ask you to do things? And you're like, Oh, sure, let's go do it, yeah, I'm gonna blow up something else, which means you're investing your time in something that doesn't actually get you to the bigger outcomes that you want. Why because you don't know what you're committed to. And when you don't know what you're committed to, you don't know how you're choosing. And when you don't know how you're choosing, you do not know how you're investing or squandering your time.

So the ideal approach is for you to decide what you're committed to. And then what you want to do is you want to break that down into small steps and small task, a big strategy, and it's a faulty strategy that I see a lot of people use is that when they have a big problem in life, they're looking for big solutions. And that's generally an ineffective strategy. What I mean by that is, if they need a lot of money, they're swinging for defenses, I mean, they're actually looking for big solutions. And what I've noticed is really what generally works every time is little solutions will fix big problems. But generally, big solutions generally won't fix big problems.

So that all goes back to consistency is that most of us do not work by consistency, we don't work by consistency, because we're not committed to something. So I know this is going to be mechanical for right now. But I want to get started somewhere. Because I know that in the earlier episodes, we did talk about Subconscious Reprogramming. In my opinion, that is the most which I didn't teach you guys here in the podcast, but I got you guys started. And my interpretation, subconscious reprogramming is the most valuable, most valuable life skill that you can ever learn. Because you can use it for you know, use it for health and wellness, you can use it to reprogram your unconscious paradigms, your habits, everything. But yet, a lot of people, they hear it, and I'm like, Oh, that's nice. And they go about their life, and they completely forget about it, and then wonder why they're not creating what they want.

But to give you, it give you some tactics here instead of long term strategy, which I guess you could turn it into long term strategy as well, is, like I just said, so you decide what you're committed to.Then you break it into small tasks. And then I went on that tangent about, you know, people having big problems wanting big solutions doesn't work that way, break it into small tasks, breaking the things that are simple. Why because simple things give us quicker wins. And when we get quicker wins, we are then more likely to continue with the behavior as opposed to something bigger we're trying to tackle. We don't achieve it and then we quit earlier, then what you want to do is you want to prioritize your tasks. And then you want to habituate your task, and there isn't an episode here on habits. So that's a pretty simple formula.

But But again, it's simple, but a lot of people won't do it. And the reason they won't do it, let's come back to habits again. Somebody asked me recently, they said, Jim, why don't I do the things that I know that I need to be doing? plain and simple. You're not in the habit of it. When I say plain and simple life really is plain and simple. And we human beings, we love to complicate things. I mean, we love to make things really hard, and actually much harder than they need to be. I know over in the habit episode that I said, and I know when I say this, I know people hear it analytically. But later what I recognize is they hear it, they understand it, but they don't know it when I said in that episode, and I actually I don't remember if I did say it or didn't but I'm 99% sure that I did is that every thing you have in life, everything. Everything you have, everything you don't have is a reflection of unconscious habits.

Then whatever you're in the habit of is how you invest your time. So when I started as I said, this is not about time this is about habit. And what you may want to do is go back and search or look at one of the or listen to the earlier episode on habits.Because see, you don't get in life what you want.You don't get in life what you want. I know I said it in that episode, you get your brain based unconscious habits. And if you want more in life and by the way, we even use our time habitually if you want more in life you know, stop doing all these things that people do, which I'll get to in a moment about beliefs. Stop that habituate it.

Actually, let's get to it. Now. When I say beliefs, and I believe what I mentioned in that episode, is people actually left brain analyze Yes. And they will say, Yes, I believe I want x, y, z, I want the new house number one diamond, blah, blah, blah, status and my multi level marketing company, I want this, I want that. And I believe that I want it because I see other people having it if they have it, I can have it. Only reason they don't have and it never happens 98% of the time is because they don't have the unconscious paradigms. And again, the paradigms are what drive the investment of time. You know, I used to speak at the same events as Robert Kiyosaki, I don't know if he's still out and about or how big he is, or whatever. He wrote the series and his whole, his whole foundation was Rich Dad, Poor Dad. But he said, and you might have heard this before, something along the lines of the most valuable asset that you have is time, because you cannot get your time back. So what you want to start looking at is what you've been committed to. And people also don't understand that.

I do a Transformational Coaching Program.However, for now, we do a week on commitment. And people will say, Oh, my God, I never realized that I'm not really committed to anything in life. I've never been committed to anything, I've never gotten anything done, I basically have just used tactics day by day to get through life. And what I tell people, every one of you listening right now is that you've always been committed to something, you were always committed to something, it's just a matter of what you're committed to. And then whatever you're committed to is how you invest your time, energy, and everything else.

So let's say for example, you're 100 pounds overweight. Well, and by the way, I can defend every bit of this, I might hear somebody saying this, and they're gonna take offense to it or whatever. But it all goes back to the paradigms and we learn our habits or habituation very early in life and our unconscious paradigms. But what I'm, where I'm going here, is somebody could say, well, I'm not committed to being overweight. Well, if you're doing all the things that you're doing, you've got paradigms unconsciously that drive it, yes, you are committed to it. So a person is lying on the couch, and they're watching, you know, all these reruns of a TV shows and everything else, you know, three hours a night, and they're overweight, and only an example, guys, no offense to anyone, just an example, in a metaphor.

Well, you know, what you're committed to the, to the ways of being and the habits that gets you, you know, that you invest your time in the way that you do, where you squander it, and you get the outcomes that you don't want. A bigger takeaway here or simplify this is listen very carefully, you're always committed to something, it's just a matter of what you're committed to, you're committed to the gym, you're not committed to the gym, you're committed to healthy eating, you're not you're committing, you know, committed to lead generation or business building, or building relationships, or you're not, and you are in varying degrees, but you're not. If you're not getting the results that you want, then you're more committed to doing and being and using your time in ways that don't get you the outcome that you want.

Okay, that was a mouthful, I got that out. And hopefully you understand that by this point. And hopefully, you're getting in your time with me is obviously, you know, you're here, you're here because you want to go to a higher emotional state in life. I mean, that's, that's, we're all wired to want to go to higher emotional states. You look at babies crying in the crib, I mean, a baby's crying because they want to be held, they're hungry, they want love, they want their diaper change. They're wanting to go to a higher emotional state, you're here and you're listening, because you want to go to a higher emotional state. But hopefully, my you know, in your entire time with me, you're getting that creating the higher emotional states, which means the outcomes that you want in life, it's not about doing more, it's about BEing more, everyone wants more, and they think they have to do more. But that's the wrong and ineffective and broken strategy is that you have to BE more, which goes all the way back to I believe episode number one or number two, and I am referencing those because a lot of this content ties together even though they're different episodes. it all ties together. When I talk about BEing let me give you an example here.

Many years ago, I used to work out five days a week. I mean, I was in the gym, lifting free weights literally every afternoon, Monday through Friday. And the time that I go to the gym is like three o'clock and there weren't a lot of people in there. And there was this other guy that worked out when I did and he was like an extraordinary shape. I thought he was a trainer but he was actually training on his own time or something. And he spotted me one day and we started talking and I said are you a trainer and I even said you know what? Because you know I've been to a lot of gyms over the years and many times trainers are not even in shape. This guy was walking his talk.

I said, you know what you obviously know what you're doing. I want to hire you as my trainer. And he said, I'm not a trainer. And I said, What do you do? And he said, I'm in Pharmaceutical Sales. What I want to point out here about how we invest our time comes from who we are. Something he said to me was this, he goes, I'm in Pharmaceutical Sales, and it goes, You know what, I go to a lot of business dinners, and we go out, and everyone else has steak and potatoes and salads and dressing and wine, when I have, you know, chicken and steamed veggies and, and rice and water. And this is what he said that I want you to understand. And this also comes to identity. And identity actually determines how he uses his time. So he uses his time in the gym five days a week. And this is what he said, he said, I do that, because that is who I am.

So you look at if you want to know who you are, look at how you use your time, because using your time again, as external will tell you who you are, and your unconscious values, your unconscious filters, and your brain based habits. So your Transformational Takeaway, instead of working from the clock, and by the clock, where you want to start working from is, what am I committed to? Now even by saying that it doesn't mean that you will actually be committed to it, our objective is to actually condition you and habit you habituate you to being committed to it. So what I suggest you do is what I said a little earlier, is, let's take the gym, for example, let's say that you're committed to being in shape, let's say that you want to go to the gym, what a lot of people do not do is they do not recognize the difference between macro habits and micro habits.

And then what they do is they don't have the micro habits to support the macro habits. So the example of that about the gym would be this, let's say the habit of going to the gym is a macro habit, it's the big habit, it's the target goal. However, every morning, you're like, Where's my gym clothes, I don't have any clean clothes to wear to the gym, where my gym shoes, oh my gosh, I'm running late today, my gym bag is not packed, well see that gym bag being packed as a micro habit that supports the macro habit. So what I would tell you to do is every night before you go to bed, you have your gym bag packed, and you have it in the backseat of your car, or wherever you have it or however you're going to you know, you're going to get it to the gym. And you have that because you've used that micro habit that you need, by not doing the micro habit to sabotage the macro habit.

So one of the takeaways this week is look at your habits and start small. And when I say start small, also it would be the micro habit is what is something that I can start doing small every day, that will actually, you know, when I do it, I can habituate it. And if I do this every day, then this will get me the outcome that I want something else is look at your values. And I'll give you some examples. In my Transformational Coaching Program, we do a week on subconscious values. And I'm going to go on a little bit of a tangent here, because this will be a big aha for a lot of you is And generally, not always, but I work with with pretty much 80% professionals of some kind or another. They're in some some kind of professional career, or they are a business builder entrepreneur. And what we do is we go through subconscious values exercise. And what's shocking is the amount of people after we get through the exercise, I'll say what are your top 10 values, and then I break those down even further. And I take people through a process to actually help them unconsciously determine their values, not analytically determine their values.

And what's interesting is I would say, and I've done this long enough to really project this or prognosticated or whatever or guess is that probably 50 to 70% of people that are business people don't even have money in their top 10 values. Now, the interesting thing about that is because they don't have money in their top 10 unconscious values, is they're never making any money, then they wonder why they're broke. And they analytically think, well, I'm a business owner, I'm an entrepreneur, I need to make money. Well, the reason they don't is because it's not in their unconscious values. So you know, when you look at your own life, if you're not making money, I'm going to tell you this, because people have all these convoluted beliefs about money, it's probably not in your value system. And then if it's not in your value system, you're not doing it and if you're not doing it, that means you're not investing your time in a way to create the outcome that you want.

You know, on the flip side of that, for example, a good friend of mine, he does very, very well financially. And one of his highest values is his kids. He's got two small kids. So what he will do is when it comes to investing time, he literally will actually if he has to be asked to pick between business and he's not in crunch time or his family. He will always pick his kids because why that's a higher value to him. than making money but also he does have he does have I've coached him actually, he does have money in his higher values. But notice what I'm sharing with you here is that he will determine how he's going to invest this time, based upon his unconscious value system.

So going forward, no longer do we actually work by the clock, we work by our habits, and our values and our commitments. And when you do that, you will find things changing for you. So you may want to write this down. And I say, again, mainly because it's just a habit is if you're not driving is a sentence that will serve you well as this is, what am I committed to? And who do I have to BE to make it happen?What am I committed to? And who do I have to BE to make it happen?

Okay, before I tell you about the next episode, I want to, I want to actually just tell you just a tiny bit about the upcoming transformational coaching program. And by the way, that's what the program is called TCP, the Transformational Coaching Program. You know, the fact that you're here, as I said earlier, means that you want to create better things in your life, you want more, otherwise you wouldn't be here. I mean, why listen to a podcast unless from what you know, if you're not wanting to get something out of it. So even though I know that a lot of people, I'm getting a lot of responses, and this podcast is doing very well, and people are messaging a team and everything else, I know that you're getting a lot out of this podcast and these episodes.

However, if you're interested in truly Transforming Your Life, at a core level, my transformational program, it's a 12 week, very intensive it is group, but it's a very intensive, step by step program.So if you're serious, I mean truly serious. And you're no longer wanting to work by your circumstances and you're wanting to create different and better circumstances, then at least you know, whatever you do.

One more thing I know I said it a little bit. But the transformational coaching program is not just information. It's weekly homework, it's process that has me literally walking you through a reinvention of yourself, at the core level already. So as you know, now we're going to two episodes a week. And next week is a Q&A episode next Monday, I believe. And what I'm going to be answering are three questions from somebody that submitted questions on that episode. And those questions are going to be how to be accepting of the way that things are. And by the way, that's the biggest thing that most that makes most people unhappy is they do not accept life as it is they accept life as interpreted, and they want it to be therefore they become unhappy. Question number one. Question number two is how to stay happy every day when something bad happens. I'd mentioned in the prior episode stop working from good to bad that actually, right there sets people up for a lifetime of unhappiness we work from what is which again, I'll go into deeper in that episode.

And actually, I'm gonna leave her questions she she has three, I'm gonna leave it at those two. So how to be accepting the way that things are and how to stay happy every day when something bad happens. Okay, that wraps up this episode. I want to share with you also something that I say to a lot of people, and especially people that work with me. So I'm going to say it and I've never said it in this podcast is we are living in very, very tumultuous times right now on this planet. We have a lot of chaos going on going on in the world. The world needs you. It needs me. The more that we evolve ourselves. The more that we grow, the more that we can help other people. So thank you for being here. Thank you for sharing, and I'll catch you over on the next episode or wherever I catch you next. Okay, bye bye.
