All right, ladies and gentlemen, welcome to 2020. Yes, it is a brand new year, which means a lot of new stuff going on for all of us. And you know, of course you’re jam packed with what are you going to do in the new year and new year’s resolutions and blah, blah, blah and whatever the end of the day. I think for most of us in this world, we kind of just look at it as another day. I don’t know, correct me if I’m wrong, I don’t know if it’s like new beginnings, but I will say that even for myself, while I just kind of, I don’t get all wrapped into, Hey, new year’s resolutions and I should be doing this or I should be doing that, uh, cause nine times out of 10, well it just never works. Anyway, I like to look at what my intention is for the year.
And so this first episode of 2020 and Thursday’s episode is just going to be me and you. And we’re going to spend a little bit of time working on a few things and talking about some stuff. And I want to give you some tools and really the same tools that I look at and I use kind of each at the beginning of each year. I started this a little while ago, which really helps to set me up and then helps me find kind of my core intention for the year. And you know, what I want, what I want to achieve, what I want out of it, uh, rather than just kind of average goals. And so I want to spend some time with you today, uh, kind of walking you through an exercise I like to do. I’m going to get a little bit more into this. Uh, I’m going to do a live in mindset radio and a group on mindset radio, Facebook group.
Uh, so if you’ve got a chance pop over, check it out. I’ll also probably edit it and post it on YouTube, put it into the show notes so it’s available for you this week if you want to come back and visit. Cause you know, I’m not really sure where you listen in the source of the podcast. If you’re busy during the day or maybe it’s on your drive, maybe you don’t have the chance to take notes. This is something you can come back to. You can check out the show notes, you can go over to mindset radio.com it’ll be up there. If you’re in the Facebook group on set radio, it’ll be up there as well. And I’m going to put up some downloadable PDF files that if you don’t want to kind of draw it out or whatever else, if you need a little bit of support with it, just download them, pick them up, do the work, uh, take a look at it.
But really what I’d like to do is set us up for a really spectacular year. Now, many of you know and I talked about it towards the end of last year, we are launching our a hundred day challenge. Uh, the official launch date is actually going to be January 16th. Why? Because studies show and it is actually scientifically proven that January 16th is the day almost everyone’s new year’s resolution fails. It’s like the day just, you know, I don’t know. Shit goes to shit and you’re done and you check out and you don’t hold onto it. I mean 16 days into a resolution, it’s pretty crazy. Uh, so you know, I don’t know if it’s right or not, but regardless, that’s when we’re going to kick this thing off. You’re welcome to join any time after that. Uh, cause it’ll just flow in the process and it’ll be available. And I’ve had some questions for you guys that listen overseas that you’re deployed or you’re on about.
Yeah, it’ll be fully online, fully accessible. You don’t need to be in person anywhere. It’ll be up and available. So if you want to do that, make sure you check out mindset radio.com backslash op your line for, if you just go to mindset radio.com on the homepage, you’ll see the banner ads for the a hundred day challenge. Click on that. Go through and come on in and join me. I’m looking forward to a good time with it. Now let’s talk today. Let’s talk about discovery. You know when you think about it, there’s this place where we really want to get down to what’s important to us, what matters to us, why we do what we do, what the purpose and intention is behind, and that’s why I like this exercise. I think because if you really take it on and you look at it, it will begin to unpack for you the roadmap that you need to have in order to produce the results you want to produce or operating.
Why you want to operate or have the life that you want to have. The thing I like about this exercise is you can do it for life, right? You can kind of do it in the big picture if you want to or you can shrink it down and kind of condense it down into your role or your job or your task, or you can separate out your job. You can just look at it from a home life aspect. It doesn’t really matter. You can do multiples. You can do it all. Like you can really approach us saying as you want. Now the particular format for this cause, I love giving credit where credit is due, came from a guy by the name of talky Moore. Now you’re not going to know talking more than likely unless you happen to be in the services and happen to be a coach somewhere.
But this guy, you know, they call him the million dollar coach. He is a coach of coaches. I had an opportunity to do some work with him a few years ago, be involved in some of his programs. I really appreciate who he is as a human being, what he offers his people that he want to talk about getting like great content, great information and just really learning the guys got it down and you know this particular exercise he uses in a different format and I was able to take a look at the single and wait a minute, this is, there’s some real value here outside of kind of the structured business side to it and it’s a really neat opportunity for us to look at what we want. So if you’re listening and you’re driving or whatever else, don’t worry about it. Just do it in a thought exercise with me, right?
Just think it out. And then maybe go back and take some notes later if you have the opportunity to break out a sheet of paper and you want to kind of work work at as we talk through it. Brad, if you know you’re listening later and you want to go back and do the show notes or watch the video, do that. But I think what I want you to do really is just kind of listened through what we’re going to discuss and I’m going to share some of my stuff with you. Uh, and you know, hopefully you get something out of it. And my hope is that this will help guide in setting you up for success this year, right? Wherever you are. So let’s get down to it. Here’s the exercise. When you look at it, we’re going to look at our Watson frustrations and then we’re going to look at our aspirations and our fears, right?
And fears and aspirations. We’re going to look at kind of the current present moment, what’s there for us, and then we’re going to look a little into the future and I want to get too far. We may stretch a little bit, but it’s always good to take a look forward and to see what’s out there because that can begin to align and start to build a path of where it is we want to go. You know, sometimes we can just get lost where we’re just feel like we’re trudging through day after day after day. I know I do, you know, when I lose kind of sight of my Norstar whose side of my objective or I lose sight of really what I want out of life, you know, and I get bogged down in the day in and day out, grind in the crap going on and really kind of start to, I dunno, I hate to use this word, but almost like fall victim to the circumstances around me to whatever it is.
It really starts to impede my progress, if you will. And so as we begin to look, right, I want to explore and kind of take some background, look at this stuff. And really at the end of the day it becomes about our intention. And, and you’ll see later this year and then throughout this season, and we’re going to talk heavy about it starting in about March or if you’re in the program, you’ll get it earlier. We’re going to talk about how intention plays out in our operational capability and being intentional, being purposeful, uh, and, and that plays into our awareness and all kinds of stuff. And so we’ll get into all that stuff later. But, but really for a minute, I want to help try to set you up for the year. And so if you’ve got a sheet of paper or you don’t, or you’re just kind of visualizing it and doing this as a thought work, uh, you know, just go ahead and draw me out kind of a quad, right?
Four squares or you know, draw a big X on the paper. Just give me four sections out there and just think about that for a minute. And in the top left section. Let’s look at what we want. Now, we don’t often do this with ourselves. We don’t really sit down to say, what is it I really want? Like what is it right now, right here, right now, look around. What do I want? You know, if I’m relating it just to my job, do I want to be promoted? Do I want to make SWAT or do I want a promotion or do I want to make detective, do I want to go to this location or you know, do I want to be a part of this unit? Like what is it you want? And don’t be afraid to say it cause nobody else is around you, right?
This is your time to reflect, to actually sit down and look at what it is you truly want. You know, if we look at the big scale of life, what do I want? I want to be fit. I want to be physically strong and capable. You know, for mine, my notes, I want to be physically fit. I want to be strong and capable. I want to be able to do 10 pull ups without question, like walking down the park and be like, Oh, there’s a pull up bar. Let me hit it and knock out 10 you know, those are things I want. What do I want? I want to, you know, a stable income, right? Income for me, he’s been up and down over the last couple of years. It hasn’t been great. It’s been stressful. So really what I’d like is this year’s to stabilize that right then not to be much, just bring it into stability, bring it into where it works and provides me just the basic necessities of life for what I enjoy doing and how I enjoy living my life.
Right? So, so I look at myself, one, uh, physicality, right? I want to be a more physically capable. I want to be stronger. I want to be faster. That’s what I want. I want to generate a stable, stable source of income from a single point where I can trust and rely on that and I can kind of pick that stress block off of me. What else do I want? I want, you know, I want good, healthy friendships. I want friendships that add to me, not take away from me. I want people in my life and around me that really get me, that I can have great conversations with at depth, um, that I can share in their life. They can share in mind that we can go be adventurous and do stuff right. I mean, those are, those are some of my top wants for 20, 20, um, you know, of course I want my children to be healthy and happy.
I want a better relationship with them, own, expand that relationship with them and want to meet them where they are. Uh, you know, I want to grow the relationship with my family and you know, for me, I want to, I want to feel more stable in my own life. You know what I mean? This has been a, is most of, you know, and you’ve listened through the podcast. This has been a journey. It has been a journey to kind of discover life newly in some ways. Uh, some of the challenges that have been, uh, shown to me over the last several years and doing this work and taking things on and taking a look at it and then sharing it out with you. You know, the other thing I want, I want more listeners, right? I want to expand the audience. I want to grow our community in a way that I know we’re making a great impact.
I mean, I know we already, the emails that you’ve sent in and the notes that you sent in, unbelievable. It’s just unreal and it means so much to me, you know, but I want to expand that. I want to, I want this conversation to go forward. I want the, the operation mindset foundation to really become a major player on the stage for you all this year. I want it to be a resource that you can trust and rely on. I want to bring a different conversation forward. I want you to be engaged and I want to be engaged with you. Like those were my wants this year. And if I don’t speak them or I don’t share them or I don’t really get in touch with what it is, I won’t know where to go. And so that’s really just the value of exploring that. And I think, I think we have an issue in our world that we just don’t speak our own desires, right.
Our own personal wants very often, you know, we worry about everyone else around us. We put everyone else around us in front of us and we don’t just sit down to go, you know what about me for a minute? So this is your moment to be, it’s okay to be selfish right now. It’s okay to actually just think about you and what you want and whatever’s there, just write it down right. And just be okay with it. It’s just what it is. Now, once you’ve gone through your wants, you know, and it may be more money, it may be a business, maybe you know, better relationship may be a better relationship with your wife or your girlfriend or your husband or your boyfriend or maybe finding love. I don’t know. You know, it could be anything truly and it’s okay for whatever it is, but once you get through those wants, here’s kind of the flip side to it, right?
Then we’re going to look at our frustrations. Like what are we frustrated by? You know, if I’m, I’m looking at my life, what am I frustrated by? Frustrated by, you know, a small budget for the foundation right this minute. I’m frustrated that, you know, we don’t have the reach that we want or I don’t have the, the extra budget to, you know, run Facebook ads and do the marketing campaign and push us out there as a major well known source for you all. Um, you know, I’m frustrated that I’m stuck doing the podcast backend work constantly. That’s just takes a lot to do and a lot to produce and I would love to get that off my plate. But I’m frustrated by that. I’m frustrated by my time and schedule and I don’t feel like I’ve done a very good job so far of, especially over the last six, eight months of giving myself to space and time to work out, to be healthy, to take it on, to meet that challenge, to eat the way I need to eat, right, to do those things.
I’m frustrated by it. I feel constrained and kind of confined by the circumstances of life, if you will. Right? I’m frustrated by that. And so, you know, I want you to actually use you think through it. I want you to feel that for a minute. I want you to feel the frustrations and what that brings about for me, it brings about anxiety, right? Frustration leads to anger. Uh, I’m frustrated most days I’m upset at things. Uh, you know, and that kind of triggers into this not nice GF place. And so really when I look at it, the things that I want, I can almost draw a correlation to the frustration that’s, that’s really standing in the way of having what I want. I’m going to say that again. If I really look at when I’m frustrated, I’m frustrated by the things that are impeding me from having the things that I want.
And really it’s kind of all just circumstantial. I mean, I can do whatever I need to do, right? And that’s where I’ve realigned myself this year to say, okay, well if I want to be in shape and I want to be working out, then I need to set the conditions for that. I need to put myself in a place for that. I need to designate my time for that. And then I need to protect that time. Like it’s the most important thing in the world. If I want healthier friendships and healthier relationships, then I have to be willing to say no that the relationships that don’t feed me right, that don’t advance me, that don’t give me what it is that I really want out of life and I’ve got to be able to segment that stuff. You know? If I want to be promoted at work, well then what is it?
What’s frustrating me that I’m not being promoted? What’s the road? So when we look at it from a standpoint of wants and frustrations, we can actually begin to build a road map, right when we actually call out the frustration for what it is, and then we can take a step back from it and we can look at it to say, okay, what actions do I need to take to eliminate that frustration? Because if I eliminate that frustration, it will lead me down the path of what it is that I actually want. Right? So it allows me to see what gets in my way. And you know, unfortunately the reality is the kind of kick in the ass is nine times out of 10 it’s me. That’s in my own way of having what it is I want. So, you know, if I want to raise more money for the foundation, then I’ve got to work the phones right?
Then I’ve got to be out on the streets more than I’ve gotta be out engaging more. That’s the way it goes. That’s just what I have to do. And so there’s the roadmap, right? To alleviate the frustration and achieve what it is I want. Now, that’s all kind of current present stuff. And I want you to go as far as deep as you can. I mean, you may have two or three pages of wants and frustrations. Really, if you never done this exercise, if you’ve never looked at anything this way, you may throw up for a couple of days around what did you want and what it is that’s frustrating you. And I really encourage you to do that because getting it out will actually give you the power to create the new path and the new road map around it. Now here’s the thing. So if we look in our, if we’re looking at our Claude top left our wants, right?
You just them out in their bottom left is our frustrations like what’s there? So here’s the interesting thing. When we flip over to the other side of the sheet and we begin to look at those other areas, we want to start actually looking at the future a little bit. Now you’ve heard me say on other podcasts on this one, you know, fear is nothing more than a projection in the future of something that may or may not happen. You know, fear doesn’t exist right here in this moment. It is very much a projection into the future. And so when we start looking at aspirations and fears, right? Those are the next two blocks. What we aspire to and then what we fear. And you know, when you look at what you aspire to, it’s like how do you see yourself in the future? Who do you see yourself to be?
What is it you really want to be in the future? Who do you want to be in the future? How do you want to be viewed in the future? What do you want people to say about you when you’re gone? What do you want written on your tombstone? What will the conversation be about Jeff Bandman when he’s Jeff Bandman no longer exists. Will it be while the guy was an asshole and you know, always frustrated and always upset. It’s stop. Or will it be, Hey, this guy gave everything he could do, the community he loved and cared about. I mean, that’s really an aspiration of mine. You know, my, my aspiration is, you know, that every day I wake up worried about you that I care about you, that there’s somebody out there that actually gives a shit. And you know, if you’re not doing the work, I’m doing the work for you and then trying to bring it to you and give you some thoughts and insights and possibilities around some stuff.
Right? That’s my, that’s my mission. That’s my entire objective in life now. And so, you know, if that’s who I aspire to be, I aspire to be a great dad. Right? A great man. I just, you know, I want to, I think we all in some way, shape or form want to be admired. I mean, I think that’s a very human trait is just admired for what we do and why we do it. And when we’re not that, you know, it beats us up quite a bit. And so, you know, just the willingness to speak that and say that it’s like, yeah, I want to, I want to be admired. I want to be admired for my life and my effort and the things that I’ve done. I don’t want to be discounted or shut down or told I’m not good enough. I mean, that just doesn’t work right?
And so I aspire to be someone you can rely on someone that is credible, someone that you know will speak the truth, someone will, that will say what others aren’t willing to say or don’t notice say so. You know, that’s the big aspiration for me. Now what do I fear? Well, I fear being left out. I fear being unknown. I fear not fulfilling on what I believe is destiny. I fear not fulfilling on the skills and attributes and lessons I’ve learned and things that I feel like I was put on this earth to do. I fear a piano loser, right? I fear not being able to provide stability for my family or to raise my children into amazing human beings. I fear I fear being alone, right? If you’re just kind of being isolated and you know, sometimes I fear myself, I fear being locked into a place of frustration and resentment and regret for the rest of my life.
I mean that’s, that’s honestly where I kind of said, you know, I mean it’s like what if, what if life didn’t happen? What if you know, the podcast doesn’t go any further. What if you know, things don’t take off? Well what if, what if, what if, and I can play that all the way down to the end and there’s actually kind of a healthy view at that at some point in time. And that’s what I want to give you permission because so many people say, well, don’t dwell on it. Don’t look at it. Don’t, yeah, take a look at it because that’s the picture and what we don’t want. That’s the picture of where we don’t want to be. Or B, that’s the admission that those are the things that really keep me up at night. Those are the things that linger in the back of my brain and when I can identify them and when I can be honest about them and when I can speak into them, they will diminish.
Because what I’m able to do is reality check life. I’m able to look back and go, you know what? If I wake up every day committed, if I’m consistent on the podcast, if I’m just consistent with you in the community, if I’m giving you everything I’ve got, I mean, I already feel like I’ve diminished that fear significantly just by the responses that I’ve gotten. You know? And we’re not out, you know, we’re not have 6.9 million subscribers. We’re not spread out everywhere yet. But I know that at least in the shows that we’ve done and the actions that we’ve taken, I made an impact. I’ve made an impact on you and I appreciate you allowing me to make that impact on you. And so really the fear, is it really a fear now? It’s not because it’s, I’ve already conquered tat. I’ve already surpassed that.
If I want to, you know, if I sit in the mode and say, what all of 100,000 emails back in, what does it matter? Right? So I’ve already resolved that in a lot of ways, but the fact is when it creeps back in, I can see it, call it out and identify it and then actually validate it, right? I can, I can begin to, to understand how to maneuver through that fear with a strength and a comfort and a confidence that I need to keep going each and every day to not let that fear be overwhelming, but I’ve identified it. I’ve put it down, I’ve written it down on a sheet of paper. That’s a fear. Okay, cool. How do I resolve that? What actions can I take that would eliminate that? What can I do that I know and trust I can deliver that will eliminate that fear?
I can have better conversations with my children. I can be more present with them. I can set work aside and actually be available to them when I want to. When I’m, when I’m with them, I don’t have to be occupied by a lot of other things. Those are the actions that will foster and lead to an amazing relationship with them. When I can set myself up to be successful in those moments, right? What enables me to touch this community when I actually dedicate myself to the work that needs to go into place to deliver something to you. And so this is really, to me, one of the most valuable things you can do to set your year up, right? And we’ll give you the roadmap for where you want to go. How do I want to be? How can I be more, you know, emotionally stable?
How can I be more, uh, mentally strong or, you know, mental toughness or whatever verbiage I wanna use around that, right? How can I improve my mindset? How can I bring something new to the table? How can I shift my day, moment by moment by moment? How do I know when to transition and recover? And all of these things that we’ve talked about, how can I be more physically prepared? How can I take care of my body? What do I need to do to take care of my body? All of these things go into play and you know, so it’s, it’s kind of a constant move of identifying it, reality, checking it, and then laying out the actions that I want to take. So for instance, if I say I want, you know, one of my objectives, 5,000 subscribers to the podcast by the end of the first quarter.
So I’ve got three months to do that, right? And we’re doing really well. But what do I want? I want that. So what actions do I need to take to have it? What processes do I need to put in place to produce that result? If I’m frustrated by my lack of time, which then impacts maybe what I want, right? A healthier body, right? A stronger capability, whatever it may be, then what hacks can do I need to take to resolve that? How do I set myself up? Do I get up earlier? Do I stay up later? Do I just communicate with the people around me? It says for this hour I shut my phone down, I’m off, I’m offline, don’t bother me, don’t touch me cause I’m in the gym cause I’m doing something for myself, I’m taking care of myself. Right? And so those are the, those are the aspects that really, this is where things come into play.
It’s not just dwelling on what’s there, it’s not just having the conversation of like, Oh well this is what I want and this is what I’m frustrated by and you know, this is what I aspire to. But then this is what I fear. Cool, great. Let’s get those out, let’s get him identified. But then once we have an identified, what actions do I take to resolve those or achieve those? Right? What is the roadmap that I’ll follow that will actually lead me to where it is I want to be in life because I think that’s the biggest thing for all of us, right? We all want to be somewhere. We want to do great at our jobs. We want to be the best police officer, best firefighter or best service member. We want to get promoted. We want to go to certain units, we want to achieve certain things.
Those are the ass absolute things. So when we go from once we can check that, do I have the ability to achieve that? And if I do or if I do or don’t, right, why or why not? Right? So I take, once I take that list at once, I can convert that into reality checking against my abilities. You know, I want 5,000 subscribers. Rad. Do I have the ability to do that? Yes, actually I do. Okay. What’s the roadmap? You know, I want to be in better shape. Do I have the ability to do that? Yes I do. You know, I want $1 million by next month. Do I have the ability to do that? Probably not. If I reality check it, you know, unless I won the lottery, right? That’s, that’s a little bit of a far stretch. And so we want to keep that, that place to it.
And then again, when I look at my frustrations, what actions can I take to resolve that frustration? How can I set myself up? This is where personal responsibility really comes into play. When I look at my fears, reality checking, are they real or are they perceived right? How do I move a fear to a state of peace or peacefulness? What does it look like? What does the road look like that would bring that fear to fruition? You know, that’s always an interesting exercise. If you look at, if you take one of your fears and you actually map it out, it’s like what would you have to do for that fear to become reality? Who’d you have to be for that fear to become reality? And in doing that, man you, you’ll sit back and be like, okay, that’s not me. I’m not going to do any of that.
So literally that fears bullshit. And so a good opportunity to do that. And then, you know, how do I bring in my aspirations into reality? What would I need to do or be to really achieve this aspiration to really be in that place? So that’s the model that I want you to look at. Uh, here off. Today’s episode, you know, is to really get in touch with all of that. Because I think what that does when you line out, like we talk about mentally, physically, and emotionally, so what you’re able to do out of this exercise is extract all that goodness, extract all that information and be able to look at and say, okay, where do I want to be mentally? What’s my intention for 2020 mentally? Well, that’s my intention for 2020 physically, what’s my intention for 2020 emotionally? Who do I want to be on December 31st of 2020 and then what’s the road to get there?
What work do I need to do to achieve that? And then I don’t future cast that I don’t look three months ahead. I go back to today. So did I go to the gym today? Yes or no. Period. Did I meditate today? Yes or no. Period. Did I study more or learn something new today, yes or no period. And those were the questions you ask yourself, right? And my intention guides me and guides me on the actions that I want to take. And the result, if you just stick in that mode, that result will produce itself basically, right? You’ll be able to look at the end of this year and go, Holy shit. Right? You’ll be able to flip back after you write this thing down, date it, sign it, do whatever, stick it somewhere, seal in an envelope, mail it to yourself, do something so that at the end of the year you can open that puppy up and you can see whether or not you even came close to it.
And if you didn’t achieve it, well then you know, you go through and you look at it and you look at why, but we’ll be doing it in a whole different context. And so that’s what I really, what I want you to encourage you to do out of today’s podcast, you know, instead of bringing a guest on right now, instead of doing all this other stuff right this second, I wanted to share with you what I do, right? I wanted to give you kind of the core aspects of what I spend my time doing, how I try to set myself up and how I take a look at it. And so I hope you get something out of it. And again, you know, you’ll be able to hit the Facebook group or the show notes or whatever else and I’ll line it out for you.
If you want to use the PDFs, great. Download them. No problem. They’re there for you to take and use 100% and if you’ve got any questions, send something to me or if you’re struggling with something, right? If you’re struggling to figure out what it is, reach out, right? I’m available on messenger and Instagram and everywhere, email and everywhere else. Just take a minute, shoot me. You know, it’d be like, Hey Jeff, I’m really hung up on, you know, my fear, so I’m really hung up on my aspirations. I’m happy to feed something to you. I’m happy to give some to you or we’ll just hop on a call and talk about it. I mean, that’s just the way it goes, right? That’s a part of life. That’s what we’re, what I’m here for. Right? That’s why that’s my whole world now. So don’t be afraid to use that resource if you’re getting stuck around it and go back and don’t feel like it has to be done all in one sitting or all in one day.
You know, take a week, take a month, don’t take six months, don’t take 12 months because then it will be next year, you know, aspect to it. But take some time with it. And if something new pops up, go back and add it. I mean that’s, that’s the way life goes. So listen, I want to say thanks for all the support last year and the love that came in and the messages that came in. I greatly appreciate it. I think we’re set up for a pretty amazing year this year. We’re structuring out the content. I’m going to try to bring better guests, more guests, not really better guests because we had phenomenal guests last year. Uh, but continue the same process with some really exceptional guests that contribute out to you that have something to offer. Um, I’m working on the backend stuff, so show notes are a little bit tighter so the transcripts are available.
So some of the other stuff that you know, kind of supports you in, uh, doing research or looking through stuff. I’m doing my best to step that up and deliver more of that for you this year. Uh, now on Thursday’s episode it’s going to be me and you again and we’re going to look at kind of how to put our lives in action a little bit deeper. I’m going to have a little bit more for you around that and we’ll talk a little bit about that more in the Facebook group as well. So really my objective for this week is to give you some tools to help set you up for the new year, to really set you up to be successful this year and whatever it is you want to achieve and produce, right? So that’ll be Thursday show now the rest of the month, what we’re focused on is mental acuity.
We’ve got some phenomenal cast coming up this month to really look at kind of the cognitive structure, how we think in process, how we improve our awareness, uh, how we connect and read the environment and then kind of maneuver through some things. So we’re going to get right into action next week, but we’re going to dive right into some mental acuity aspects for the remainder of the month. And then in February, uh, I’m really looking forward to February. I got an opportunity to really start talking with and getting to know a lot of the other companies that support our community, uh, that I think are really exceptional. And so February we’re going to highlight a bunch of those. We’ve got some great conversations mapped out now, some really cool people coming to the table. And so in February we’re going to do it but highlight and some deep dives so you can actually hear from some of the people that are out supporting you why right.
And get their story. And, and I think some of it you may really be surprised and blown away by. I, I know I’ve already been that way. And then through March and probably into April, uh, we’re going to dive into C3. We’re going to dive deep into comfort, confidence, and creativity. And we’re going to blow that out. We’re going to extract that. We’re going to look at the math behind mindset and we’re really going to get in and bring in both great guests from the community, outside the community, some really forward thinkers around some stuff. And my objective is that through this podcast this year, we’re going to elevate your game significantly personally and professionally. Write it because I believe in our world, they go hand in hand. And so that’s what our focus is on for the remainder of this year. I’m going to do my best to give you everything that I got.
Uh, don’t forget if you’re a new listener, uh, starting January 16th, again, we’re starting to a 100 day challenge. It’s going to be unique opportunity to really kind of uncover some stuff and learn some great valuable lessons along the way. You know, I’ve had questions around, uh, the physicality of that couple of people, you know, recovering from injuries or doing whatever. There’s no standard for that. It’s not a fitness challenge by any means, but we will look across all three primary areas, mental, physical and emotional. And in that a hundred day challenge in the first week, I’m going to guide you through a process of how to kind of unpack one core thing that you want to focus on for the a hundred days and kind of the shear behind that is right. The piece behind that, you know, there’s a lot of stuff out there on what, how many days it takes to create a habit and whatever, whatever, I’m sorry, I can’t buy into that.
What I really want you to get out of that a hundred days and why the a hundred days exists, is we’re going to rewire some of the biological systems. We’re going to retrain the elephant to understand what it means to win and really embody that sense of achievement and winning over those hundred days. It will be tough. It will be simple and tough, I promise you. So that’s available upon the site. It’s run through the operational mindset foundation. So all the proceeds go to benefit the operation mindset foundation to help us get out. So that’s a by choice donation, uh, to the program. Check it out mindsetradio.com/opyourlife/ or just go to the main page at mindsetradio.com. Click on the link and follow through to the a hundred day challenge. I really would love to have all you in there and you know, if you can’t hop in on the 16th do you want to hop in a little bit later?
Not a problem that the program will run kind of as it is for the remainder of the time. And we’ll support it with the group and it won’t matter where you are, cause you’ll fold right in. You’ll see what everybody’s working on. A really neat chance to be a part of a cool community and I’ll work and contribute together on some stuff. So that’s going to wrap up today’s episode. It is January 7th, 2020 wow. 2020 it’s pretty crazy when you think about it, so I hope everybody had a great holiday season. Hope everybody had a safe and great new year, and I hope you’re looking forward to this year. So you know, tune back in on Thursday, we’re going to talk about what life in action looks like. We’re in a dissect a few things. Give you four more tools. Again, thanks for sticking around. Thanks for listening, and we’ll talk to you on Thursday.
