228: How To Choose Your Best Life - See Successes
This Episode's Main Points: What you choose to look for will determine what you see. What you see will determine what you do and achieve. See success and benefits in: The past The future Possibilities Challenges The big The small Helpful Resources/Links: Want To Reach Your Full Potential?3 Parts To Reaching Full Potential Follow me on Twitter:Nick Maizy Follow me on LinkedIn:Nick Maizy More material:NickMaizy.com Show Notes: Do you want to live your best life? Your absolute best life? If not, you’re in the wrong place. But, if you want to explore what you can do to make the most of where you’re at right now and begin to guide yourself to take your life in the direction you want, then this episode and this series ‘How to choose your best life’ is just for you. Welcome my friend! We are in a series on ‘How to choose your best life’ and I am thrilled you’re here and joining in. Say, make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss any episodes in this series. You don’t want to miss any in this series, but I also have a few more series coming out where I’m going to hit some major topics to help you Enjoy Life & Create The Future You Want. Have you ever got a new car or truck? Maybe one that was just new to you? Did you see it all over the place after you got it? Over my years, I’ve had a few different vehicles. Some were more popular and weren’t. But, the same funny thing happened with each one. As soon as I started driving it, I saw that same car or truck all over the place. Now, did everyone else go out and get that same used vehicle I got the same day I got mine? Of course, not. I saw more of them because my attention was on the vehicle I was driving. I looked for them and I saw more of them. What you look for can determine what you see. See Success Past Right, wrong or whatever. See the benefit. Be kind to yourself Give yourself a little grace You're human If you don't see the success in your past, it will be more difficult to build on it. Future Believe in your future Believe that you can achieve. Maybe with some help, guidance, or even mentoring. If you don't see success in your future, it will be more difficult to pursue it. Possibilities Life is full of possibilities. It is far more risky to never take a risk. Be optimistic If you don't see possibilities, it will be more difficult to take advantage of them. Challenges Today's struggles will give you the strength you'll need tomorrow. If you don't see success in the challenges you face, then it will be more difficult for you to overcome them. Big Hope in the big things that are important to you Keeping the big things you want in mind can help you keep going in the right direction If you don't see success in the big important things, it will be more difficult for you to achieve them. Small Value in taking the small steps Focusing on the small steps you need to take can help you continue to make progress If you don't see success in the small steps, then it will be more difficult for you to stay persistent in doing the work to achieve goals and create the future you want. What can you do? Start where you're at. Of the areas I just mentioned, which ones are you already seeing the successes? The Past, The Future, The Possibilities, The Challenges, The Big, The Small. What areas is it easier for you to look for and see the positives? Which areas is it more of a challenge for you to see the positives? Or, your successes? If you want to add the value of seeing the good things in any of these areas, the best way to do that is to write out. They can be small things. Maybe it’s tough to list many positives in a certain area. That's okay. Start where you're at. The more you can begin to see the successes in each area the more you'll be able to build on those successes, move forward, and make progress to even better. If you focus on the negative, then that's what you'll get more of in your life. If you can see the successes (even in the challenging things), then that's what you'll get more of because you'll be able to capitalize on them. Choose where you focus. Choose what you focus on. Choose what you see. The choice is yours. Use your choices to help you live the life you want. What's one thing that you're going to look for more of in your life?

226: 2 Sneaky Goal Stealers
This Episode’s Main Points: There are 2 common things that steal people's chances at achieving their goals. Don't let them steal yours. Doubt Comfort You can take small simple steps to prevent them from stopping you from achieving your goals. Helpful Resources/Links: Want To Reach Your Full Potential?3 Parts To Reaching Full Potential Follow me on Twitter:Nick Maizy Follow me on LinkedIn:Nick Maizy More material:NickMaizy.com Show Notes: Do you want someone to sneak in during the middle of the night and steal your dreams away from you? Preventing you from ever experiencing the life you want? As scary as that sounds, it actually happens to some people. But, it won’t have to happen to you not after listening to this episode. Having your dreams stolen sounds like one of the most terrible things that could happen. That’s exactly why I don’t want it to happen to you. Today, we’ll talk about 2 common factors that end up stealing people’s dreams. Not yours though, because it is relatively simple to guard yourself against these thieves. And once you know about them, they actually lose a lot of their power. You’ll just have to stay vigilant and maybe even recruit a friend to help call you out if you start to slip into letting your guard down. By now you’ve got to be wondering what thieves I’m talking about. Doubt Doubt steals more dreams than failure ever will. Doubt stops people from trying. Stops them from succeeding and prevents them from ever experiencing what they could. All just because of a little doubt. What’s the source of doubt? One major source of doubt can steam from fearing failure. Failing is no reason to doubt yourself, though. Listen to episode ‘224: Why You Should Stop Avoiding Failure’. How to reduce doubt Build belief! Encourage yourself See past success. Acknowledge even the smallest of progress. Take small steps to BIG goals. Personal development can be the best way to stop doubt from stealing your goals. Comfort That dangerous comfort zone traps people into not taking the action that could lead to the amazing life they want to live. You can have comfort or growth. But, not both. You can develop the habit of stepping out of your comfort zone, though. Yes, it’s still a little uncomfortable. But, you’re used to it. So, it’s not so bad. How to stop conform from stopping you Build your WHY Become intentional Develop habits through small consistent steps. Personal Development is the best way to stop comfort from stealing your goals. What you do is your choice. Small steps are easier than large leaps.

225: Leave Nothing To Chance
This Episode’s Main Points: You don't have to leave your life to chance What you do is important Find a system and/or mentor to follow Take action to guide your life Helpful Resources/Links: Want To Reach Your Full Potential?3 Parts To Reaching Full Potential Follow me on Twitter:Nick Maizy More material:NickMaizy.com Show Notes: Are you frustrated? Maybe some things aren’t going your way. Listen to these words that one of my mentors told me “frustration comes from trying to control the uncontrollable.” Just because you’re frustrated and there are things you can't control doesn’t mean you have to leave it all to chance. Don’t leave your success, goals, or the future for you and your family to chance. Leave nothing to chance. Now, let’s get into the episode. Is it possible to leave nothing to chance? I believe so. Before we get too much further as I think about the past few posts and episodes, I have to acknowledge something. I know it’s not a popular opinion. That’s okay because I’m not good at being popular. And you might pick up on the fact that I believe you have enormous power and control of the life you live. You can’t control everything. You don’t need to control everything. And I'm not against taking some chances. Life has risks. And that’s okay. Remember the podcast episode from last week? It was all about not being able to avoid failure if you want to succeed. Can’t control that. Think of buying a lottery ticket. I’ve bought a few over the years. Not that many, though. Still, I don’t believe there is anything wrong with buying lottery tickets. If that is what you want to do. Now, this will be an extreme example, but using lottery tickets as your retirement planning is leaving it all to chance. And it is probably not the best step to take for your financial security. What I want to talk to you about is how to stop leaving your life to chance. You may not buy any lottery tickets at all. That’s cool. Are you leaving your future to change in other areas? Like I said, there are things you can’t control. Putting too much on what you can’t control leads to disappointment and major frustration. But, what if you focused on the exact things you can control? That just may make the biggest difference in your life. It really could. Negatives: Gives you the responsibility Removes excuses Other people may not like it Positives: Security Progress Freedom Confidence Live The Life You Want Now is the time to accept ownership of your life. Take control of the things you can control. One thing you can control is your choices. I talked a good bit about choosing your choices in episode 223. Fortunately for you, there is some great news for leaving nothing to chance. No matter what you want to achieve, most likely someone has done it or something similar. And you probably can learn from them on how to achieve what you want and live the life you want to live. That’s great news. In fact, there probably is a system out there that can help. Find a system that you can follow that leads to the life you want. What is a system? A system allows for ordinary people to get extraordinary results predictably. - Bob Burg. I use an example from my life. I want to create a better financial future for my family. So, when I found a system with a long time proven track record and mentor to guide me, what do you think I did? Do you think I went after it? Of course, I did. I jumped at the opportunity. So, now that I have a system and a guide, I’m good right? Those two things mean that I’m set to achieve my goal of a better financial future for me and my family, right? Nope! Not at all! In order for me to leave nothing to chance, I have to do the work needed consistently to get the results I want. Doing the work is the thing that I can control. Maybe I can’t control how long it takes. Maybe I can’t control obstacles or challenges that come up. Maybe I can’t control a lot of things. But, I can control what I do. The same is true for you. In order for you to leave nothing to chance, you’ll need to choose what you do. Often, doing the work consistently to achieve what you want is code for boring and not giving up. That’s okay because it’s the results you want. What’s most important is that you can achieve and you can create a better future for you and your family. Leave nothing to change. Do the work. And don’t give up.

224: Why You Should Stop Avoiding Failure
This Episode’s Main Point: Avoiding failure can lead to avoiding success See going through failure as a step to succeeding Helpful Resources/Links: Want To Reach Your Full Potential?3 Parts To Reaching Full Potential Follow me on Twitter:Nick Maizy More material:NickMaizy.com Show Notes: As weird as it may sound, you may need to pursue the exact thing you don’t want to end up getting what you really want. I know. It’s weird. That’s why we need to talk about it in today’s episode. You want to succeed and achieve your goals, right? Of course, you do. We all do. If we all want to succeed, then does that mean we avoid failure? Nobody really wants to fail, right? It’s easy to look at failure as the opposite of success. You either succeed or fail. It’s as if on one side you have failure way over here on the left and on the far other side way over on the right is success. And in order to succeed you’ll have to go as far away from failure as possible and then you’ll be able to succeed. That makes logical sense. And unfortunately as you know life is not always logical. In fact, it’s not logical at all in this case. Avoiding failure may take you straight to never achieving your goals and not being able to live the life you want. How can avoiding failure stop you from achieving your goals? Actively avoiding failure can: Stop you from experiencing opportunities Stop your learning Stop your growth Stop you from developing character Stop you from anticipating failure Stop you from giving your best Stop you from trying Stop you from helping others Stop you from getting the best from life The further apart you see success and failure the more likely you won't experience your full potential. Think about that. Now, imagine something with me. Imagine that you see success way over here on the left and the success of achieving your goals over here on the right. Now, bring the two together. Put the two right next to each other. See it in a way where you know you’ll have to go through failure in order to get to success. See failure as a step toward success. Far too often, people, maybe at one time you too, see failure as something to avoid in order to succeed. But we can go through failure, benefit from it, and use that benefit to achieve what we want and live our best lives. It’s okay to fail. Accept it. Learn from it. Give it your absolute best. And don’t give up. This is your life. Make it what you want.

223: Your 2 Most Powerful Assets
Are you letting the fact that some people have more resources or assets stop you from achieving what you want? Don’t let what other people have stop you from living your best life! Today, we’re going to explore a few assets I know you have. And these can help you achieve and succeed. This Episode’s Main Points: No matter who you are or where you're from you have two enormously powerful assets. You have potential inside of you Your choices can make a difference in your life Helpful Resources/Links: Start reaching your full potential:Learn about Live - Grow - Lead Follow me on Twitter:Nick Maizy Follow me on LinkedIn:Nick Maizy More material:NickMaizy.com Show Notes: Yes, other people may have more resources to succeed. Yes, someone else has more assets to get started toward their goals. Yes, that other person is getting help from some powerful people to get them on the right track. You can’t control that. But, the question is “Are you going to let what you can’t control stop you from doing what you can do?” I hope not! Please don’t. Instead, use what you have, what I know you have, use it to the best of your ability and you will do great things. You can achieve your goals. In a world with a million things stacked against you, what do you have going for you? Yes, some people have more, some people have less. But, how much you have or don’t have isn’t what is doing to determine your level of success. Yes, starting with a million dollars in the bank would make it easier to invest in real estate. But, some wildly successful people have started with nothing. Some people start with more. Some start with less. What’s most important is that you start and make the most of what you have. Fortunately for you, you have some assets that no matter who you are. And what will make all the difference in you reaching your potential and living the best life you can is what you choose to do with them. Your Two most powerful assets. Potential I know you have greatness inside of you. You have amazing potential. Maybe you just need a little help to see it. or you just need to make some simple adjustments so that you can begin to live it out. On a personal note, I’ve been told that I have potential many times over the years. Sometimes I didn’t receive it so well. Sometimes it felt like people were telling me that I wasn’t doing good enough. That didn’t feel good. That’s not what I’m telling you here at all. What I want you to know is more of that I believe in you. That you are good enough. That you can do the things that you want to do. You can live the life you want to live. That’s your potential. Choices Another great asset of yours is the choices you make. How you spend your choices is what will allow you to reach your full potential or not. You get to choose what you do. I know you have responsibilities and demands for your time and attention. There are plenty of things you need to do. But, looking at how you spend your choices can begin to bring the power back into your hands and your mind so that you can guide your life to go where you want. What choices can you make that will help you live your best life, reaching your potential, and creating the future you want for yourself? Mindset - Develop the mindset you want by choosing what you put into your mind and the words you use. Actions - Use your actions to guide your life by being intentional with what you choose to do. Goals - Aim for what you want in life. Otherwise, you won't hit it.

222: Does Personal Development Matter?
This Episode’s Main Points: Personal Development Can Help You: Develop resiliency Become adaptable Be a better parent Improve overall health Achieve your goals Increase productivity Improve just about anything Even deal with other people better Helpful Resources/Links: Start reaching your full potential:Learn about Live - Grow - Lead Follow me on Twitter:Nick Maizy Follow me on LinkedIn:Nick Maizy More material:NickMaizy.com Show Notes: I know I talk a lot about personal growth and development. Setting and achieving goals. Making improvements. Are all these things really that great? Well, you can decide for yourself. This episode is all about a few of what I believe are the most important reasons to pursue personal development. Does it really matter? Choosing to become your best self, the best version of you that you can be, is tough. It’s hard work. Like anything that’s challenging and takes work, you need to have a good reason to do it or you won't stick to it. I believe every bit of effort you can put into becoming your best is worth it. "Everything worthwhile is uphill"-John Maxwell But, there's a major problem. Or, really just a big challenge. Human tendency is to take the path of least resistance or travel downhill. One of the major issues with taking the path of least resistance is that you commit yourself to nothing better than what you have right now. I don’t know about you, but that wouldn’t work for me. Even if things are good now. Knowing that it won’t get better and that you are giving up any possibility of anything better. There is greatness in you, there is also a better life for you and your family. Resiliency You can recover after challenging times Adaptability You can adjust and adapt when needed Parenting Being your best self definitely helps in being your best for your kids Health Pursuing your best self can help to the work needed to improve help too Goals Getting clear on what you want, why you want it, and all the other components of personal development lead to achieving goals along the way Productivity Personal development leads to a greater sense of clarity around what's most important to you, which can help you be more productivity in the areas where you want to produce Anything you want to improve Being your best self requires you to determine what specific things are most important to you to improve Other people An additional indirect benefit of personal development is being better at responding to other people

221: Parents, Don't Let Them Steal Your Growth
This Episode’s Main Points: Personal growth and development is important Parents and other busy people can grow personally You can take small steps toward you own development Helpful Resources/Links: Start reaching your full potential:Learn about Live - Grow - Lead Follow me on Twitter:Nick Maizy Follow me on LinkedIn:Nick Maizy More material:NickMaizy.com Show Notes: A crazy life full of demands for time and attention is nothing new to any parent. But, that doesn’t mean you have to give up on making progress toward the life you want. Let’s talk about personal development for parents. I know your time is short, and the list of responsibilities is long. That is why today I just want to share a little encouragement and a few suggestions to help you care for yourself and your personal development. Oh ya, and these also apply even if you’re not a parent. How to keep growing personally when time is short and responsibilities are long. You can be your best And it’s worth the effort Your best isn’t perfect No one is perfect. And definitely don’t compare yourself to someone else. One thing at a time Trying to do everything at the same time kills all progress. Believe me. I know. Of all the ones I’ll share today, this one probably gives me the most trouble. But, even though I’m not perfect at it, I know it works. And it works even without being perfect. Small Steps Count This one simple thing is especially powerful for us as parents. And of course, it’s helpful for anyone who is busy too. You can take small steps toward your goal. And you can fit them in wherever you can. Do what you can do This goes right along with ‘you don’t have to be perfect’ and ‘small steps count.’ Still worth saying. Do what you can do. Reminds me of the quote “do not let what you can not do interfere with what you can do.” Give yourself some grace Parents need this one. Non-parents need this one. Young, old, tall, short, everyone needs this one. And it seems like more and more we need to give it to ourselves and to others. Today, let’s just focus on giving ourselves a little more grace. Find what works for you There are two parts to this one. In order to find what works, you have to try things. You can’t find out what works for you if you don’t ever put in the effort and work on your self-development. Keep at it until you see some results. Care for yourself Doing the things that are good for you and not just the things you feel like doing. Binging on Netflix with a half gallon of ice-cream would be nice at the moment. But, that probably wouldn’t be good for me in the long run. Look at self-care as those things that take a little effort that are good for your body, mind, mental health, and so on. A little self-care not only helps you be a better, healthier, sharper you, it also can help you be better for those you care about too. There are many benefits to putting in some work to become the best version of yourself that you can be. With or without kids, it’s challenging. It takes work and time. Still, you can do it and it’s worth it. To Help You Implement Keep it simple Start small Don’t give up

220: Best Investment During Uncertainty
This Episode’s Main Points: There is 1 investment that always gives you a return Investing in yourself There are great reasons to improve yourself The best reason for you to work on personal development is the one that is most important to you You Can Do It! And you get all the benefits and rewards Helpful Resources/Links: Start reaching your full potential: Learn about Live - Grow - Lead Follow me on Twitter:Nick Maizy Follow me on LinkedIn:Nick Maizy More material:NickMaizy.com Are you investing in what you really want? Do you think your investments will pay off in the long–run? Or, are you uncertain how they will turn out? Well, there is one investment I know of that always pays well. These days there is plenty of uncertainty. Seems just like as soon as one crisis ends, another begins. Or, when some people do something terrible before too long, something else steals our attention away. All this makes it difficult to even consider our long-term well-being. It’s almost impossible to prepare for the future when the demands and crises of today take all our attention. But, what would you think if I told you about an investment that always pays off? In fact, it can pay even better than the lottery and pays way more consistently too. Are you investing in yourself? When I say investment, I know many people think of a lot of different things. Real Estate, stocks, bonds, crypto, even NTF things, and many others. There is one investment that doesn’t matter which way markets are going. This one thing is always paying big and you’re guaranteed to see a return on however much you choose to invest. Investing in yourself is always an excellent investment. Why is it a stellar investment? This is your life. You’re the only one who can achieve your goals. Let’s say you have a huge longer term goal that is important to you. And it’s a big goal. And right now, with where you’re and your skills, you have a 65% chance at hitting that goal in the next 3 years. What if you could raise that to a 98% chance? Would that be nice? You are stuck with you. If you had a business partner, would you like it if they improved their business skills? If it’s so exceptional, why don’t more people invest? Personal development takes work. It takes time. It takes persistence. And no one can really make you do it. Not all bad news, though. Remember the positive, strong reasons to invest in yourself. I gave some general ones. What are your personal reasons for becoming the best version of yourself that you can be? Those will be more important and more powerful than anything I can give you. Come up with the biggest, most motivating reason you want to be your best. And commit to going after that because you can make it a reality. Commit. Start. Don’t Quit. Also, remember that small steps count. It’s the small steps repeated over time that create the habits that will carry you to your goals. If you’re ready for a small, easy step, then this may be for you. I’m starting a group called Live Grow Lead. I will share a specific curriculum designed to help you reach your full potential.

This Episode’s Main Points: There are things you can't change. The Past Other People There are things you can change. Your Actions Your Attitude Fully taking ownership of the things you can change will make all the different in the world. Big announcement next week. Helping you reach your full potential. Helpful Resources/Links: Is A Goal Killer stopping your progress?Get '7 Goal Killers To Avoid' Cheat Sheet For a simple solution:Take Overcome Your Goal Killer Quiz Follow me on LinkedIn:Nick Maizy Follow me on Twitter:Nick Maizy More material:NickMaizy.com Show Notes: Let me share with you how growing up I learned to see the statement “it is what is it” in a way that differs completely from many other people and how it serves me greatly in my everyday life. Before we dive in, I can't help but share about last week. I was at an amazing Maxwell Leadership conference. I'm now a certified Maxwell Leadership team member. What’s that mean to me?Training. Material. What’s that mean to you?More value. Better material. Improved tools & resources. I want to help you reach your full potential so you can live your best life. Wouldn’t that be great? Do you want that for yourself? That’s what I want for you. That’s why the Enjoy Life Podcast is here. Now, I have top-tier resources to share with you to help you make your best life a reality. To help you live the life you want. And next week, I’ll start sharing more of them with you. We’ll start with the 3 components for reaching your full potential. "It is what it is." To some people, it means certain things won’t change. So why even try? They use that statement as a reason to give up. It is defeating. They become defeated. They defeat themselves by the viewpoint they take and it’s encouraged by the words they use. Not me. And not you either, right? Or at least it doesn’t have to be you. Here is how I use the phrase “it is what it is.” I got a flat tire and am running late. “It is what it is.” I can’t change the fact that the flat tire happened. I can, however, change or choose a few other things that make a HUGE difference. First, I can change the tire. I can choose my attitude. I can choose how I prepare for another flat tire happening in the future. I can choose if I will let that flat tire ruin my day or week. I can choose if I allow that flat tire to take control of my life or if that flat tire “is what it is” and that's all that it is. That flat tire is only a small, tiny insignificant bump along the way in my day, week, and life. I use “it is what it is” to acknowledge that I can’t change certain things. I didn’t choose for certain things to happen. BUT….(most important part) I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do. You cannot change what you cannot change. And that’s okay. You can’t change other people. You Can’t change the past. No one can. And that’s life. Just don’t let those things change you. Don’t let what you can’t do stop you from doing the great, amazing things you can do. And sometimes the most amazing thing you can do is choose to have the best attitude you can and do the next small right thing that is best for your life and future. I know it can be difficult. Especially in the moment when things are frustrating and not going your way. You can do it, though. Your life and future are worth you rising to the challenge. And I am here to help. I have some more tools and resources to share with you. Starting next week. I’m excited about these upcoming announcements. I just want to make sure everything is set up and working before I release it.. Talk soon, Nick

If you focus on the big things you want and keep taking steps toward them, you will make progress. And progress is great. It is most important that you keep taking steps you keep doing the work and you keep making progress. That will mean you keep getting better. Your life will become more how you want it to be.

216: Common Reason People Can't Succeed
This Episode’s Main Point: The fastest, most common way that people lose their power to achieve their goals and live the life they want is they give it away by believing they don’t have it. They believe they don’t have the power to create the future they want. So much of what we do and what we achieve is based on what we believe. And you can cultivate the belief you need so that you can succeed.

What about skills? Of course, skills are important. But... If you believe in yourself, do your absolute best, fully commit, seek help, continue to improve, and never give up, then you can achieve almost anything. Yes, you may need to learn new skills. I'm not telling you that life is always sunshine and rainbows. It is not. And that’s okay. You still can create the future you want for you, your life, your family, and what’s important to you. It will take belief, hard work, continual improvement, and persistence. You can do it, though. There are too many stories of people moving to the United States with a tiny bit of money, a head full of belief, a heart full of passion and drive, and a body willing to give all it’s got. And they succeeded. They built a better life for them and their families. Again, achieving what you want and living the life you want won't be easy. But, believing that you can do it will help make it possible. It is possible. Not Easy. Possible. You can do it too! Want to explore the possibilities or get some resources to help?

214: What Music Are You Listening To?
What kind of music do you listen to? Does it change based on your mood? We each have the power to affect our thoughts, mindset, and even mood. If I am having a bad day and am stuck in a negative limiting mindset, then listening to music that matches that mood probably wouldn’t help me change out of that mental place. When I am upset, I like to listen to music that agrees with my mood. That major problem is that it doesn't help me change my negative mood. Instead, it just seems to bury me in that mood even more. What you put into your mind has a huge effect on what goes on in your mind. Obviously I’m talking about more than just music here. Let's explore what you can do to take ownership of your mental space so that you can create the future you want for yourself.
