How to rewire your thinking to get more output, greater income, greater net worth, and more fulfillment.

Have you ever learned something valuable during a documentary, a book, a course, a class, a webinar, a friend's recommendation?

But...

You ended up doing absolutely nothing with this new information?

This is a sure sign of improper thinking for the achiever.

If the person in question wants more money, wants more success, and wants more connection to the things around himself, he needs to ask himself a crucial question:

How do I store this information for later use so that I will reap the full benefits of it when I'm ready to use it?

Or

How do I immediately, tangibly, use the said information I've received to do something that can lead to a brand new habit?

These 2 questions should be asked almost every single time you come across a piece of useful insight that gets you closer to where you want to be.

The human mind is far from perfect.

It likes to keep things "low RPM" like an automatic transmission on a car.

This means: many good habits, that could be formed, don't get formed, due to the fact of how our brain is wired by default, which is: it empties out the information into it's sub-conscious mind just-about every 24 hours.

So, every 24 hours, every thing you learn, becomes less accessible.

It's still there, it's just not as easy to access as it was the moment you learned it.

What happens if you study Facebook ads and then you wait 30 days to implement what you learned?

Good luck. You might as well go through the same exact actions you did before and to instantly try to forge that new insight into habits.

Almost no one get's good at anything without consistently practicing at it, day in and day out.

The goal of any program you take, should be to form new habits that lead to your desired end outcome.

If you read a book and didn't form at least 1 new 'small' habit, you may gain zero tangible reward for your effort and time spent.

Failing to set up checkpoints or recurring reminders about important insight you've already learned but have not acted on, is a bad habit itself, which can quickly and easily be corrected.

Let's look at an example:

If your goal is to have a consulting business where you're successfully making $10,000 month by charging 10 accountants $1,000 each to do google adwords campaigns to help them grow their business,

Then, the desired end habits should be to master Google adwords, and whatever that means, which should fill & facilitate your focus.

That could mean: Forming a habit of being organized, forming a habit of tracking things as clearly as possible, forming a habit of removing poor-performing ads or keywords from the mix.

Forming a habit of learning the insights when and where ad/keywords/landing pages performed very well together, to see how you can create more benefit from what you've already created.

Forming a habit of restoring faith, patience and commitment with your accountant clients who's budget is being spent and patience of which may be waning during the early testing phases that are necessary to discover profitable ad sets.

If new habits (repetitive actions carried out on a daily, weekly or monthly basis) don't get formed, as a result of taking a course, then you have most likely failed.

But it's okay.

Everyone is born to be a failure. No one lives up to their true, full potential.

This is an ideal that's impossible for any human to truly do, yet always an inspirational thought and visual string to strive for.

The key is to recognize that you are not forming good habits.

Then, elevate the importance of understanding of how the few "key things" you need to do, day in and day out in order to reach your goals.

That could be, prospecting, advertising, following up with existing customers, asking for referrals, trying different ads, keywords, or targets, audiences and images.

Depending on what you are advertising and where.

Another could be: forming a habit of asking for feedback on everything you do with respect to your ideal customer base so that you can improve your ads, products, and experiences that you offer.

The Magic Bullet: Extracting the insight out of that which you learn, then rewiring of your brain to form good, clean habits that get consistent results that you desire.

One thing that makes making habits easier? ENJOY it.

You don't have to think about doing things you enjoy, you simply do them.

Find creative ways to add more value to your own life when your habit-forming habit is lacking.

Cheers, see you on the next one.

    Nice post, thank you. The "forming good habits" always seems to be sensitive topic in this forum. I do struggle with reading something good or learning something good from a course with plans to implement later, but then forget what I learned when the time comes.

    Why learn the info if there is no intention to implement immediately? Exposure to courses that force you to buy now because it "closes at midnight on this date". So you're obliged to buy the course now....and who buys a course just to sit on for a few months until really ready? I can't wait to blow through all the course material as soon as I get my instant access!

    I end up having to basically take the course over again later when it becomes more relevant to my needs.

    I'm not big on cut and paste blog posts, but for what it is, this one isn't bad. One thing, which has helped me with the task of remembering and implementing new ideas, is to have an EXTERNAL brain.

    I carry two of them. One a pen and little notebook in my back pocket. The other my cell which has memo and audio ability. When I encounter NEW ideas, I write them down, or dictate...and every day, after dinner and before evening entertainment, I transfer them to a NOTEBOOK. A real, touchable, write on it with a pen, notebook.

    And using something similar to your thoughts, I like to INCORPORATE THEM immediately into the next day's work. My work day is early morning. So, first thing, after some wake up exercise is to REVIEW the notes from the day before.

    Since, I have a plan of action for the day, I wonder how can I incorporate the new found knowledge and put it to use, to get it to the point of habit?

    So, thanks Justin, better than most blog posts we see here. Actually useful.

    That thing right there, so true. Enjoy the habits. Things that are done forcefully only last temporary. But if its something that brings you joy, you bet that you will continue to do it longer, and even forever.

    Plz can the gals play also?

    Bcs we so sweetly talented beyond COOKIN' an' DANCIN' an' DROPPIN' THE MAMS, we figure ultimate superiority would be ours for the takin' but for the whole equality deal.

    Thing is, all fyootures flux out on a blend of inevitability an' potential an' choice.

    For Moi this means mebbe my Teen Self Opportunities be way dead ... but now ima more finely tooned to max out on today's TAMARA.

    Gotta figure growth an' experience are inevitable bcs even if you a self-ossifyin' stagnation hole, your input from the Worlde Beyonde changes from second to second.

    But I would nevah wish to become inneffectually stoopider merely thanks to a Cosmos Beyond Moi ragin' sweet outta my control.

    An' that is why I would wanna pull in sum spin on what is gowin' down.

    Kinda ... mix & match my mortal flooidity to a world bustin' out at random in ways that spark way cool stuff.

    Las' thing this sounds like to Moi is habit.

    Smacks too much of inflexibility, slavery & lack of choice.

    Plus also, it reminds me I gotta quit the frickin' gin.

    Thing is, evry magic bullet demands a legendary beast to slay -- an' mythology is fulla this crap.

    Perseus figured THE SHIELD, an' David figured THE SLING.

    Thanks to Avengers Endgame, you might also wanna question how Robert Downey Jnr figured max access to THE FINALE.

    So, like yeah -- now the magic bullet got evrythin' SHOT.

    But what next for habit's bullet?

    Where's the target? Who's firin'? Who benefits?

    hey or they are just checking off a list .. where off rich/successful /wealthy people.. do these things every days.. so they might as well read 30 minutes .. weather or not they do anything with the information..

    or develop a whole bunch of habits the see as habits of rich /successful/wealthy people . and again totally ignore why the people are actually doing them ..

    the person actaully doing stuff. if they read.. only really has time or should be interested in helping them do what they are already doing better.. as at a certain point . a person has to cut down the number of activities or things they do.. and focus on just those that get them the results they are after ..

    Reading is very good for the mind, as it channels focus.

    The habit of "reading" itself will augment and improve everything else.

      Reading is very good for the mind, as it channels focus.

      the ability to read is a great thing.. but it does not have to be a habit.. not everything needs to be done out of habit ..

      a person who reads for ten minute and gets a piece of information they use in solving a problem.. gets far more value from reading than someone who read 100 books because they have the habit of reading .. and never does a thing with the information they read ..and when i get that .. i have the choice to stop reading .

      there are many good or positive habits.. but i single person with 24 hours in a day can only implement a few real positive habits that will get results ..

      ,many who build wealth do not have the habit of saving.. they have the money automatically shifted into a saving account and not into their hand which they then have to deposit

      I read but it is not a habit .. i have sever areas i am studying so i am searching for pieces of information .. i am not reading in hopes i learn something .. i have in mind what i want to learn from something before i start reading ..

        The purpose of wealth-building habits is to take the "thought" out of it, like brushing your teethe or driving your car to get coffee. No complexity, no critical thinking, just, do.

          i give up.. there is a difference between skills and habits..

          and the less things you just do.. and the more skills you use to get productive results .the better ..

          the guy reading every day.. and doing nothing with what he is reading .. is not developing a good habit.. he is wasting time and the money he is spending on the books he is buying and doing nothing with .. but reading because he believes he is supposed to be reading every day ..

          but i am pretty sure people who write motivation books who are invested in people reading motivation books and hopefull buying the books they write.. will neveer say anything accept someone should read every day ..

          I have been practicing intermittent fasting for nearly a year or more ..i happened onto it before i learned the term .. then i heard it explained ..in a podcast and then watched several videos on you tube about it ..

          i have had great results ..and the amount i can eat at one meal has also decreased .. so there are a bunch of habits.. i don't need to develop ..

          just keep when i eat the first thing i eat and the last thing it eat in a day be in a twelve hour window.. and walking a few miles before i eat the first meal of the day..

          and i have had the best easiest weight control of my life and decent muscle tone ..

              in a few weeks when i get my new place .. i will be shifting my diet more heavily toward resistant starches as the main source of calories ..can't do it in the situation i am in now..

              habits heavily depend on habitat .. so if a person want to develop new more productive habit..they need to look at their environment and change as much as they can in order to support the new habits .

                Environment does play a huge role in habits, but it's only one factor. Will power and discipline can override a poor environment for long periods of time.

                  It is one factor, but it's an astronomical one.

                  'Overriding' would probably need to be defined with this in mind.

                  a very short period of time ..of course .. so you need to fix your environment to support the habits you want to keep as fast as possible .

                  the critical part of habits that make them habits .. is you get to doing them almost without thinking about it ..so they do not require will power or even disciple after a time ..

                  but if the environment does not support them..you may never actually hit that point the become habits .. always something you have to push yourself to do .

                  if i went back to working in a regular job where i had to commute 30 minute each way ... i doubt i could maintain the intermittent fasting ..or other habits i have developed in the last year .. including walking at least 1-2 hours a day ..but if i live somewhere besides here in arizon where part of much of the year it gets much colder than here .. i would probably not want to walk when it was below zero outside or under 32 Degrees .. and treadmills destroy my knees ..

                  i will spill the beans on why i think habits are over valued or to much attention is focused on habits.. habits are for those living in default mode ..so if you want a better life by default ..yes maybe better habits is is a good thing .

                  but if you want to be a conscious creator ..putting any mart of your life on default or auto pilot.. is counter productive .

                  i want certain things in my life .. to get those things.. i have to take certain actions every day ..or a few times a week.. if i don't take those actions.. it just proves i was fooling myself when i said i wanted those certain things ..

    Paradigm shift, alteration of environment and relocation are very much different principles - the likelihood of those being actionable solutions (excluding the first), might be highly unlikely.

    Often, paradigm shift is all a person has, in which the environment only changes in accordance with their perception. Hence the need to define 'overriding'.

    In reference to your article and in appreciation of that point, people do need to simply think about things they enjoy, since doing them is often an impossibility - an actual one.

    This, coincidentally, is one primary principle of positive paradigm shifting.

      Doing things you enjoy, is far from impossible, in almost every case.

      With belief and confidence, not much needs to be imagined, it can be actualized.

        there is a lot of stuff that can be imagined and there is pleasure in imagining .. that really should not come into actual action in reality ..that even if you wanted to do them really really badly.. still are most likely not really possible .. or might feel good as you do them.. but the implications and fall out.. not so good at all .

        i really don't need to argue with anyone about that do i..

        many things that are fun to think about ..but definitely so much better to stay in the thoughts

        There are countless people in the world who simply cannot do things they enjoy due to a wealth of different circumstances.

        In many cases, belief and confidence are what people need to simply survive.

          well belief and confidence .. that thing can get better.. or that there is something they can do to make thing better .. then a way to measure even small improvements.. without forgetting where the low point was ..

          when all the fluffy stuff you think you need is ripped away.. and you are left with just the basics to survive.. enough food a place to sleep even if outside .. water .. and people to talk too .. who wont treat you like crap for being in a crappy situation .

          well the thing a person need more than enything in that situation.. is someone else who believes in them far more than they do.. to the point you think that someone else is a bit crazy ..

          I've been to 3rd world countries and walked on the streets of the slums in places like Mexico and Philippines and others and I've concluded that a lack of awareness, motivation or desire, to have a different life is what keeps people doing what they do.

          Most enjoy or find a way to enjoy whatever it is they have.

          We have 100% control if we seek out information.

          Any country with non-censored internet who can ask Google a question, or any human with a smart-phone with a 2G or higher connection can consult with the world and become smarter and move abroad where there are more opportunities.

          Wealth is distributed to those who are the most motivated to have it.

          Nothing's changed on that front and never will. Anyone with any background can become rich if they do things in a certain way.

            In appreciation that these are personal and psychological conditions; how did you conclude that people have a lack of awareness, motivation and desire (and learn of their possible earnest efforts in the past) by walking the streets?

            Referring to these two proposals; there is a fundamental difference between wanting to do something enjoyable that is otherwise impossible or very unlikely due to personal conditions and learning and adjusting to find pleasure in the status quo.

            Inheritance doesn't render a beneficiary as someone who's motivated to own a sum of money. These beneficiaries are far and wide.

            I do agree that the mind is the fundamental seed, but I also appreciate that each and every case is entirely subjective and so, again, there's really a difference between forging a positive paradigm and making the most out of what already is and taking steps to move mountains.

              if someone is starting from nothing .. they need to find the proper models used by other people starting from nothing .. to follow to build wealth .. and yes it start with someone being willing to figure out what they haven't learned .. that they need to learn.. and go learn that . the best way available to them .

              but there are many things as you have pointed out that are near impossible in seveal environment and from many situations..

              the key is to focus on what can be done from where the person is now .. and start building progression bade improvement

              that vast majority of people with million dollar or multi million dollar net worth ..who started from nothing .. built it up over a few decades .

              so the main missing thing from people without wealth or who stay poor or don't build wealth .. is a lack of a longer term planning ..with things they can do every week ..that over time build wealth ..

              and an unwillingness to actually change the environment they are in even if it is a radical change.. to an environment that will support their building wealth . or getting out of poverty .

            so one percent of the human population on this planet or less has wealth .. the other 99-99.5 percent .. have personal defects and just lack motivation ... and have bad thinking .

            you can go to seatle .. there is like 120,000 homeless people in Seattle .. there are 55,000 homeless people in Las Angeles .. there are 25,000 homeless people in the county phoenix is in ..

            it great if you can honestly believe it's a problem with the individuals .. a lack of motivation.. something they are doing wrong .. and not a function of a problem with society ..and the environment people are in..just the way they think and how hard they are willing to work..

            the first state in building wealth.. is knowing what wealth actually is ..and that is even hard to figure out studying much of the lunacy in the self development field ..
