The brain is a muscle we seldom work on in order to keep fit. It requires the same amount of time and effort (if not more) than we normally use to get our physical bodies in shape. A big part of gaining awareness is sharpening your focus, which requires a variety of mindfulness activities such as meditation. Meditation is a key practice that helps make us conscious of our unconscious habits. It brings you back to the present moment, free from the worries of the past and the unknown that lies ahead. It is the ideal state for awareness to be gained. Ultimately it comes down to digging deeper to understand the person you are or the person you are becoming...which can only be done by you.

Most of us like to think that we know exactly where our life is headed. Whether it be pure optimism or just sheer ignorance...when we think/act this way, we're really giving up control of our life's journey.

In order to figure out where we're headed, we must first figure out where exactly we're at in the present moment. This makes it easier to plan for the LONG road ahead. When I say LONG, I really mean Looooong!

A key to gaining a sense of direction that will lead you to success is developing a long-term perspective. What I mean by that is you have to constantly imagine the kind of person you want to become along with the goals (This is where the journey begins; by setting goals for yourself) you want to achieve. This practice helps you come back to the present moment, where you will understand what needs to be done NOW in order for your future wishes to take place.

Don't get caught up 'Thinking' that everything is okay and that you're moving in the right direction (or moving at all for that matter), instead focus on how you are truly feeling about your current actions.

Are you tired? Are you scared? Are you happy?
How do you feel about your emotions, your body, your mind?

Questions we don’t ask ourselves enough.

Questions some of us never ask at all.


Self-Awareness is a MUST
If you want to figure out where you’re headed, it’s easier to start with where you are right at this moment. It gives you a better sense as to everything you need to pack up with you for the journey ahead. Digging deeper to understand the person you are or the person you are becoming can only be done by you.

Find out where you need to go (set yourself some goals).
Understand where you currently are physically/mentally (Self-Awareness).
Learn about your self (mind/body/soul),
Challenge the status-quo and recreate things that are Innovative,
Add Value…understand it, appreciate it, bring It,
Last but certainly not least…laugh, smile, dance…whatever!… Just Enjoy it all.

  1. Where you are now compared to where you were when you started

I’m light years ahead! Sometimes it feels like that person from 5 months ago is dead and gone and I can’t believe I was that person. It’s amazing! I’ve lost weight that I had a hard Time getting rid of. I learned to plan, track progress, and stay consistent with not only the gym but also my nutrition.  I'm much more aware and I know my positive mindset is only going to help me grow from here.

  1. Key benefits you've noticed from Growth Coaching

I’ve learned to be more self-aware of my thoughts and actions. I’ve become more disciplined in building my mindset and my life. I’ve also built consistency, something I always lacked, and all of these have allowed me to go 100% at life which includes my mindset, my body, my relationships, my happiness, my career, and my business. Specific examples would be: I’ve had to learn boxing and swimming on my “New Year's resolutions” for over 3 years but I was too afraid to start. Now I swim once a week (without fear) and box once a week. Heck, I even MEDITATE and read. Last time I read was in grade 3!

  1. Why you would recommend it to someone who is looking to create happiness through growth

Let's put it this way. I’ve done some decently good stuff in my life financially. But I always felt empty. I couldn’t figure out what it was. But now I get it. I knew deep down in my soul that I wasn’t actually growing, I wasn’t giving life my 100% and I felt like the same person, day over day, week over week, and year over year.

Now it’s different. I wake up daily, happy and excited to conquer the day. I read my goals, I meditate, I read, I go to the gym and get some endorphins, and then I continue to crush my day without running myself into the ground.

Every single person that I meet and all my friends notice a positive change and now they’re learning to meet me at this level. It’s literally changed all my relationships and all parts of my life! If you’re not growing; you’re dying! I know that’s true from experience. Push limits, crush goals, and win at life.

Side Note:

100%! I’m a numbers guy, and I always look at the ROI (return on investment) on anything I do because if it's low or negative, why waste my time and money.

Well, the coaching  ROI is 1000000X and I don’t say it with exaggeration. It’s affected my mindset and growth opportunity so much so that I’m excited to live my best life - which specifically is the next 100 years!

Multi-tasking is not what its all cut out to be. Sure when you're in the moment, it seems like you're able to accomplish more than 1 task at a time, it feels like you're doing MORE, and being efficient about your work. Until of course you're required to keep that same level of energy, time & effort in order to sustain.

Don't get caught up in trying to do everything before you can do anything.
Focusing on one thing at a time slows the process, but it builds it up to last much longer than the idea of getting multiple tasks completed right away.

How though?
Create a system for yourself that will allow you to 'step by step' accomplish each task one at a time. Patience is key here!
Develop habits that will help you achieve your goals (tasks),
write things down, hold yourself accountable for your actions (and lack thereof),
failing is normal so don't get down on yourself when you fall off and start back up again. Remember to enjoy the process, because that's the whole point anyway. 


Slow progress is better than no progress.

We all have a lot of things going on and sometimes we're not necessarily the best at setting them up in an organized manner. It could be simple things like a catch-up meeting I’ve set with a friend you haven’t seen in a long time or declaring taxes for a new business you just set up. Yeah, both of those are examples of the many things that can potentially make your stress levels increase. 

It takes a different mindset to feel that way… It takes being “Mindful” to accept that it’s not a negative thing.

Know what is going on in your head to help you better understand what is going on around you, and better yet let it assist you in figuring out how to deal with whatever those different things may be.

Here's a percentage breakdown of what most humans worry about according to the late Earl Nightingale who was an American radio speaker and author, dealing mostly with the subjects of human character development, motivation, and meaningful existence:

1. Things that never happen: 40 percent. That is, 40 percent of the things you worry about will never occur anyway.
2. Things that have happened in the past that can’t be changed by all the worry in the world: 30 percent.
3. Needless worries about our health: 12 percent.
4. Petty, miscellaneous worries: 10 percent.
5. Real, legitimate worries: 8 percent. Only 8 percent of your worries are worth concerning yourself about. Ninety-two percent are pure fog with no substance at all.

All that to say this;
1. If you're not experiencing fear today...right now, then you're not taking enough new actions necessary for growth.
2. The worst that can happen is never really that bad. Unless you're facing death or perhaps prison....nothing else can stop you from facing your fears.
" It does not take money or luck to create a great life; It requires the ability to move past your fears with speed and power. Fear, like fire, is not something from which you should pull away. Rather, it should be used to fuel the actions of your life "- Grant Cardone.

I am very grateful for my coaching sessions with Continual Growth. As they changed my mindset and helped to build everything I needed to be successful.

They taught me how to achieve my personal goals and build new habits which helped me to be the best version of myself.

At my first session, I wasn’t clear what exactly I want and how to get where I want to be. My coach Sturr helped me with prioritizing things and showing all the possible steps which I could do every day in order to live the life I dream about.

I strongly recommend connecting with them as they always are there for you when you need it most. I gained so much experience and wisdom with them!

Thank you!!! I’m really very grateful!

When given perspective...Fear should be an indication that you are indeed doing what's right in order to progress and move forward in the right direction.

One of the more difficult things to do is to not only embrace fear and the change that comes with it. Instead of learning to look for and use fear to figure out exactly what you need to do to overcome it and advance your life is worth the pain.

Tip: Use Fear as a reason to move forward rather than an excuse to stop and let it take control.

First and foremost it is important to understand that fear is NOT REAL!
Fear is simply just a combination of your uncertain and doubtful thoughts.

So if it's not real then what the hell are most people actually afraid of ???
In most cases it is the outcome, the influence fear has on the decisions we have to make is all out of our control once we give fear space to operate.

Don't let it control your life...

What does time have to do with it??
When we put things off and allow time to accumulate, what we're doing is allowing for our fears to grow deeper and deeper. Often times as previously mentioned we worry about the outcome (usually with a negative view) of facing our fears.
This doesn't have to be true if we can just deprive our fears by not feeding them and allowing them time to grow.

Tip: Whenever you sense that fear is on its way, take MASSIVE action quickly and repeatedly. Show yourself and whatever life throws at you that you are indeed Fearless.

Growth coaching has helped me out so much in ways I didn't even comprehend before. Mentally I've grown so much and that has helped me deal with a lot of personal/work related situations. Growth coaching has helped me realize that my 100% is further than what I have in my mind. There's always room for growth and that's such an important thing I've learned from growth coaching. I've noticed a huge impact on how to build confidence and belief in my own abilities. Viewing my strengths and being accountable for my own actions. I would recommend growth coaching to Everyone in the market to create happiness through growth. What you learn about yourself and how to build new habits is revolutionary for the mind and I can promise success.  Happy growing

Okay, so how can we approach confidence in a way in which we can build it up and develop it as one of our habits??

A few really quick ways that come to mind are;
1. Stress testing! Challenge yourself daily
2. Get comfortable with feeling uncomfortable.

Let's be probably have a pretty regular "not so challenging" routine that you go through on a daily basis. It may seem like you're building consistency, but in fact, you're limiting yourself from growing beyond a fixed mindset.

Put yourself through a routine that will make your mindset stronger by challenging yourself to do things you may not feel like doing, but that is necessary for your growth!

If you can let the way you view things help you rather than hurt you, you're already gaining a better perspective of life. 

Control plays a significant part when it comes to how our emotions are affected. We face things on a regular basis that can easily prompt negative reactions, however, it is your attitude that will determine your overall outlook on the situation(s) at hand. 

Remember that time when every single Monday felt like the start of a treacherous week ahead. With a different view, that same day can mark the beginning of a productive week where you will get the most amount of work you've ever gotten done. 

In our last podcast, perspective is the topic of discussion and one of the key takeaways is that our point of view on anything can be altered once we open up for an opportunity to change.

Iteration Breeds Routine

Now some people will say living a routine life is BORING.

I get it, I’m the adventurous type myself. That’s not what it means though, because the goals you create for yourself are what will ultimately fall into your routine. If you want to travel the world, start a business, build homes…these are the things you will be working towards and eventually doing as part of your goals. This doesn’t eliminate your aspirations and ambitious hopes and dreams…it makes sure you’re doing everything necessary to reach them.

Iterate to create Routines that will become Rituals.

Find a system (i.e 21's Board) that works for you, and start making a routine of healthy habits that will ultimately become your life rituals.
