TPM 054 : Adjust Your Sails in Life to Carry You to Success, with Michael Carlson
This week we’re joined by a military veteran and world traveler, Michael Carlson.
You know that saying “Old dogs can’t learn new tricks?” Well, in listening to him speak, hearing about his experiences around the US and abroad, you’ll begin to seriously question the validity of that saying. His commitment to growth and improvement throughout life are truly inspiring, and a great example for those of us who want to better ourselves and the world around us. And I know many of you fall into that category!
In this episode, we talk about:
- Why inertia is be the enemy
- The 5-Second Rule’s amazing applications in life (not the one about food)
- How our ‘defeats’ in life can help us to level-up even more than our successes
- And the 3 C’s to a powerful mindset. These are some tips that can help you work in your dream job, regardless of your age or the state of the economy.
Action and flexibility are super important. A lot of the time we have an idea of what we want to do, but life has this way of throwing curve balls and introducing spontaneous roadblocks as we try to navigate this thing called life.
Even though we can’t control what happens, we can control what we do about it. Will you let it stop you? Or will you adjust and move around the obstacle? The most important thing is to never stop taking action. Action is the key, and it builds momentum.
