MicroHabits: Small Changes, HUGE Results
MicroHabits: Small Changes, HUGE Results
Did you know that the most effective way to improve your life is to establish good habits and stick to them? Researchers have found that nearly half your daily actions are driven by habit, from your morning routine to how much exercise you get and the way you approach tasks. Establishing and maintaining good habits needn’t be as much of challenge as it sounds if you take a micro habit approach. Instead of having big goals like ‘get fit,’ ‘lose weight’ or ‘get a new job,’ break them down into smaller more achievable goals. Treat your personal goals as if they were work projects. Work out what steps you need to take to succeed. Start by working out what changes you want to make in the various parts of your life, from health to the office and your home life. By making some small changes in your life, you can make radical progress towards achieving your goals.
Don't go it alone!
It's amazing what can be accomplished when you combine the power of multiple minds. That's the power of a mastermind. The Mastermind principle consists of an alliance of https://www.success.com/article/the-road-map-to-great-teamwork (two or more minds working in perfect harmony) for the attainment of a common definite objective.

Flip the Switch to Positivity
We don’t always listen to our own self-talk. We tend to tune ourselves out, figuring it’s all the “same old same old.” After a while, we might not be hearing it anymore. This becomes a real problem when the self-talk turns negative. Negative self-talk is what holds us back. It keeps us from accomplishing the things we could and can affect our health if it goes on long enough. On the other hand, positive self-talk is what gets us where we want to go. It boosts us when we need a jolt to set us into motion. It inspires and enables us to get to where we want to go.

Homeschooling question for Amy Dingman
I sent a homeschooling question to Amy Dingman, from A Farmish Kind of Life podcast and website. Amy has lots of years of homeschooling experience, having homeschooled several of her own children. The question I asked is, where parents start who are new to homeschooling and want to maintain the necessary studies, while also giving their teens what they need to keep their mind activated and interested in what they are learning. Where is the dividing line between letting them jump from topic to topic exploring everything that happens to capture their attention, and keeping them focused and moving forward on the things that will help them create a life they actually enjoy living?

5 Traits of an Extremely Fulfilled Life
Watch the original video https://youtu.be/uuNvgiMyCuM (here). Everyone wants to live a happy, fulfilled life, right? It’s a no brainer! Look around you and notice the happy people who seem to roll with the punches. No matter what life throws at them, they find contentment and meaning wherever they are. So how do they do it? What do extremely fulfilled people do that you’re not doing? Here are some suggestions. 1 They know themselves People who are content and fulfilled have a good idea of their strengths and weaknesses. They don’t berate themselves for not being perfect, but they focus on what they do well and work on the things they could improve. A good team needs people with different strengths and talents. If you’re an extrovert who loves people and organizing, you’ll excel at arranging functions, events, and conference. If you’re more analyst or a researcher, your strength is probably preparing reports or explaining data. 2 They stay connected Humans have a natural inclination to connect. Millions of years ago, survival depended on being committed to the group. People who are content and fulfilled in their lives tend to maintain healthy social networks. They stay connected to friends and family. They prioritize spending time with the people they love and have lots of support to rely on when things get tough. 3 They believe in themselves People who go about their lives or are dissatisfied tend to have low self-esteem. They don’t expect things to go well for them and they stay in their unhappiness. Fulfilled people, on the other hand, have solid self-esteem and quiet inner confidence that life is pretty good. Confident people tend to have more friends and are more successful generally. Confidence sets up a positive circle that breeds more success, more happiness, and more confidence. 4 They are grateful A big difference people between who are content and people who are a Negative Nancy is that the happy people are grateful. Not just for their success but for everything in their lives. No matter what else is going on, fulfilled people can always find something to be grateful for. Gratitude is an excellent habit to cultivate. The more you focus on the good things in your life, the more good things there will be. Gratitude is energizing and positive and generates its own momentum. 5 They have a purpose People who are happy and fulfilled don’t just wait around for good things to happen to them. They have a purpose in life that is aligned with their values, and they just go for it. Extremely fulfilled people focus on doing what they feel they were made to do, what brings them satisfaction at the end of the day, and what makes a positive contribution to the world.

9 Habits of Successful People Every Teen Should Master
https://odysee.com/@kennetheash:f/9-habits-every-teen-should-master:1?r=3jZ24FnU4u3hq7me27LLh36Xa6KWYMgS (Link) to the original video recorded live. 9 Habits of Successful People Every Teen Should Master. 1. They Set Goals Successful people know what they want. More than that, they actively set goals in order to get what they want. Having goals in mind doesn't count either. You need to write your goals down, and then break them down into an action plan. 2. They Stay Healthy Staying healthy is key on the road to success. A proper diet, solid exercise routine and getting enough sleep are 3 of the most powerful things you can do. Being healthy will let you focus on the pursuit of success and not worry about always getting sick or fatigued. 3. They Face Fear Fear is one of the biggest roadblocks to success. Just think about things you might have missed out on because you were too nervous to take a chance. Successful people feel fear just like the rest of us, but instead of giving up they face it. 4. They Learn It is kind of a shame that school ends so early in our lives. Some people feel like that means they are done learning. This couldn't be further from the truth. A commitment to lifelong learning will propel you towards success by keeping your mind sharp, and your skills up to date. 5. They Stay Organized There may be a handful of geniuses who are able to create and think surrounded by a mess, but for the rest of us "normies" a cluttered space is nothing more than a distraction. You will save time, energy and boost focus if you keep your space neat and tidy. 6. They Keep Balance What is the point of success if you don't take time to enjoy it? Hard work is clearly important but remember to relish the good times along the way. Having a life balance will keep energy levels high and give you something to look forward to besides work. 7. They Take Time to Think Do you ever make time to just think? Successful people do. They know that being successful means continually thinking "what next?". If you want to be more successful, schedule 20-30 minutes of quiet thinking time into your day. 8. They Surround Themselves With Inspiring People If you want to be successful, it helps to have successful friends. Besides the doors they may open for you, having successful friends will inspire you. You will learn what makes them tick, and it's never a bad thing to have a likeminded social circle. 9. They Plan Their Day Do you ever find yourself wondering what to do next? Successful people don't. They take time to plan their day, because they know that the time invested will pay off. Taking half an hour to plan your day, could save countless hours of wondering what to do next.

Until next time....DO GOOD WORK!
I'm back with the first episode in nearly 2 weeks. And a rough 2 weeks it's been. I've been flat on my back fighting pneumonia, and it's taken a LOT out of me. I'm finally back to where I can carry on a conversation without struggling to breathe. But it's still difficult to record a whole podcast episode. I'm back today to say that this will be the last episode to Teen Catalyst for the year. I plan to hit it hard next year with fresh new content and interviews for you guys. The format may change, but the show will still be here come January 2022. In the meantime, feel free to email me and email@example.com with any comments or questions.

The Power of Mentorship
I spoke in the last episode about mentors, and I read a few cards from the book Master Mentors: 30 Transformative Insights from Our Greatest Minds. I introduced the concept of a mentor as somebody who guides you to success in life that you couldn't have imagined without them. Today I want to talk to you about the POWER of mentorships. Mentorships help people by giving them the push they need to get to that higher level. A mentor can show you the possibilities of where you could go.

Mentorship is Key to SUCCESS
Today I want to talk about mentorship. A mentor is someone who is known as a trusted counselor or guide. Recognize that vulnerability is an actual leadership competency, and that peers, colleagues, and direct reports crave relatability and transparency in their leaders. The higher you are in an organization, the more warped and blurred your view becomes of what's really happening on the ground. So, remember not only to focus ON the business, but work IN the business as needed. Be a light, not a judge. Be a model, not a critic. What actions are required for you to demonstrate the vulnerability that allows those around you to do the sam?. ~ Dave HollisProtect your brain. Just because you can't see your brain doesn't mean it's not there. Invest as much energy caring for it as you do for your heart, your lungs, your skin, and other more conspicuous organs. Are you willing to become the family or community pariah in order to save a life? Dramatic? Yes. Accurate? Even more so. Protect your brain. ~ Daniel Amen We often think of self-discipline as being focused on doing something in particular. Although that certainly is true, excercising the self-discipline NOT to do something can exponentiate your creativity and productivity. If you were to establish a greater degree of self-discipline tomorrow, is there one recurring habit that, if you could improve upon, modify, or eliminate, would have a disproportionately positive impact on both your confidence and your ability to progress something enormously important to you? What is that thing that you need to eliminate in order to progress something in your life forward? ~ Ryan Holiday For more information on how to find a mentor that's right for you, or to work with me directly, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Grow Through Adversity
Today's episode is about growth in upheaval. When you're in upheaval, you tend to hit survival mode pretty quickly. You become focused on just getting through each day; anything beyond that, you simply don't have the time or the energy to care about. It's times like this that you need to take advantage for personal growth. When you approach times of upheaval with a mindset of growth, you: learn to embrace adversity become more adept at challenges become better at seeing the opportunities cultivate positivity develop more empathy If you can focus on the person you are becoming rather than wallowing in the sadness and the tragedy of whatever you're facing, that is what will pull you through and help you to grow.
