The Next Level

focusI am very excited to have with us today our episode’s guest who was highly recommended to me, a productivity and success transformation coach. an author of the “Perfect day Formula: How to Own your Day and Control Your Life plus he’s been a contributor to Man’s Health Magazine since 2000 and in 2001 he created the popular turbulence training. Let’s all welcome our guest for today, Mr.Craig Ballantyne.

“Just being as routine as possible, helps you maintain a healthy weight and maintain a really good alertness and energy levels.” – Craig Ballantyne

 Craig shared his personal story when he himself experienced extreme anxiety rooting from all the things that are going on around him; which includes success as well as failures. He was really worried that he even thought of going to the hospital because of having a difficulty in breathing, only to find out that everything is normal except that he does not know how to breathe well. This is due to the stress hormones with the adrenaline which highly affects the nervous system. This story simply talks about how stress can actually affect our health and our way of life.

 “Not having an all over the place schedule which is going back and having more structure in your life eventually makes you more effective.” – Craig Ballantyne

 Life is tough, and the only way to survive it is by having a clear vision and plan on the things which we want to accomplish in life. We must have a plan, if Plan A won’t work, there should be an alternative plan. Another thing that Craig gave emphasis on is that we should not be blinded by the offers of others for us to get our goals, always remember that if we planned it, then we know how to do it. If we will be constantly affected by the views of others about us, we will never succeed in life.

 “Make sure that you have a meaningful incentive that actually drives you through the tough days to stick with whatever you’re trying to change.” – Craig Ballantyne

 We all need motivation. We might want to do this because of this and that reason, but if the reason behind all these efforts is something that makes us happy, then we can do it. For example, if we work because we want a salary, then that’s an awful way of working since you only drag your feet every day going to work. But if you work because you want to send your children to school, then going to work comes out with joy and with passion. A motivation to accomplish our goals is highly recommended by Craig.
