A bird gets stuck in the snow in Winter and is freezing to death. A cow comes along and poops all over him, warming him up. Being saved from death he starts singing, which attracts a cat. The cat digs him out and eats him. So, “the magic” is… not all the poop you are in is bad and not everyone who digs you out is good. Mordant & McFall discuss being in the moment and finding the silver linings in moments allegedly gone wrong.
This week on Success Freaks, Charles & Mordant “Up Periscope.” We discuss the concept of “Being in the Moment.” How do you train yourself (or a dragon) to be excited about life. In the Level Up section, we “Change our perception and change our reality!” And, in On Beyond: How to fix the Grumpy-Gus that is you. All this and more… on this episode of Success Freaks!
Segment One –
The guys dip their toes into the sea of Periscope (live video via twitter). Mordant & McFall discuss the idea of Finding Magic in the Moment. Think of it as looking for the Silver Lining. It’s important to focus on the positive when plans go awry!
Segment Two –
Charles asks How do we train ourselves to keep looking for the Magic? Mordant tells about The Radium Girls and the idea of “The Unlucky Winners.” The guys follow up with examples in their lives of “Finding the Magic.” Charles asks How do you keep your mind fresh and excited about life? Mordant answers, “Practice.”
Segment Three –
The concept of being “In the Moment” is discussed. Mordant talks about taking a moment to appreciate things around you and making such a habit of thinking that way that it comes to you automatically. Charles talks about almost missing moments with family because of other responsibilities or things we could be doing, and his choice to focus on those moments.
Segment Four – Level Up
This week’s “Level Ups.”
Charles’ Level Up: Change your perception and Change your reality!
Mordant’s Level Up: Actively train yourself to find the positive or “the magic” in each moment of each day. Practice until it becomes natural to think of the magic FIRST.
Segment Five –
On Beyond Success Freaks: (Here Charles and Mordant talk about how they “Go bigger, Badder, Better, More!”)
Being Grumpy. Do you have a “blood sugar” issue? Do you just live with it or do you have ways to solve the “grumpy problem”? The guys talk about how they go On Beyond by being very aware of their different negative situations and being prepared to solve or at least improve the situation.
