151: Mastering Habits with Gretchen Rubin

http://chrislocurto.com/downloadsDo you have any bad habits? Do you wonder why so many successful Entrepreneurs are able to create habits that contribute to their success while others can't seem to get them to stick? Well then you are in for a treat on today's podcast. The crazy, incredibly talented Gretchen Rubin in on to talk about that very thing! One of the things with happiness and habits, is to manage your own mind, to really think about the mood that you're in or the way that you're feeling and think about, "What can I do to fix this? That is the biggest myth is that there's a right habit that everyone should follow and it will work for everyone. There's all different factors that could influence whether someone found it easier or harder to keep their habit of exercise. An important clue is, when have you succeeded and when have you failed? How do you measure people against each other? How do you create a framework for understanding the patterns that we see? This thing almost melted my brain, it was so hard to grasp. I realized that when it comes to habits, people fell into four very striking patterns. I divided all of humanity into four. There are upholders, questioners, obligers, and rebels. So, the challenge for each of us is to take advantage of the strengths and counterbalance the weaknesses so we can get ourselves to the place we would want to be.

The Chris LoCurto Show - 10 Signs You're a People Pleaser

See the full post here: Are you afraid of other peoples opinions of you? Do you always seem to attract folks who need rescuing?Well…you just might be a people pleaser.Quite a few people who come through Next-Level Life struggle with being a people pleaser and finding their worth in the acceptance of other people. It can control them.When your life always revolves around being a people pleaser you actually end up losing life. It robs you of your authentic selfand it all comes from a persons root system. It's the stuff that's deeply ingrained in you. In today's show I look at 10 signs you may be a people pleaser. Here's they are:1. You end up doing things for others in hopes that they will do things for you.2. You become frustrated when people don't love you back.3. You're guarded and you don't let people in so that you don't get hurt. 4. You're always afraid of other peoples opinions of you.5. You feel you are worth less than other people. 6. You attract takers and people who always need to be rescued. 7. You always apologize for things that you do. You blame yourself.8. You become a victim of constructive criticism. 9. You neglect you. 10. You let opportunities and life pass you by. If that list sounds a lot like you and you found yourself saying, "That's me!", you need to start the conversation about Next-Level Life.Your worth is not dependent on someone else's opinion of you. It's dependent on God and what God thinks is really all that's important. Find your significance in Him - He's crazy about you!Question: Without naming names, do you know someone who is a people pleaser? (Maybe yourself) Which sign would you say is most prominent for them?
