This 10th and last episode marks the end of Season 1 of The M3 Mile, and I wanted it to be extra special. It is different than previous episodes as it includes twice as much content (I thought that this’d be a great way to wrap this up!) and also includes a special message to you, whom I’ve had the immense pleasure to spend the last 9 weeks with, providing you with bite-sized insights and strategies for you to apply straight away to help you climb and move your mountains!
To continue making this special, I’d like to share with you 2 behind-the-scenes moments, which also contributed to this episode being extra special from the moment it was recorded. First, you’ll notice that I’m wearing a different outfit, and once you’ve absorbed the content it will all make sense as it beautifully illustrates the personal story I share with you about my husband. And, second, I’ve mentioned this before: I’ve the BEST video crew and when it came to record Episode 10, something funny happened that had us all in stitches during the shoot! You will hear as you watch or listen that I share with you a quote from Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, and while I’m perfectly able to pronounce his name (which I’m sure you’ll agree with me is something!) I somehow kept on stumbling over and over again on the word: Happiness ;-))) You’ll pick that up when you watch the episode.
So, in this last episode, I wrap this first season up by focusing on expectations. Expectations are critical as whether or not you realise it, we have expectations about absolutely everything. Something happens in our brain every time we do not meet an expectation, every time we do meet one and every time we over exceed one. There is a very close link between expectations and motivation.
Understanding what happens at these moments will give you the power to better manage and leverage your expectations, so that you are motivated and keep going. Being able to control your motivation levels has everything to do with both your happiness and performance in everything that you do and achieve (or don’t do, nor achieve). This is SUCH an important facet and it is no wonder I’m dedicating a jam-packed episode to it!!!
