Episode 120 – Mantra: Love the process

“Whenever you’re building something you start… brick by brick up. You do the work; you love the process.”

It’s human to resist change.

It’s in your biology.

In fact, the whole basis of human physiology is homeostasis, which is latin for “same status” or keeping you the same. No wonder it’s counter-natural, it’s written into your primal genetics.

But you have evolved… You now have the beginnings of an advanced brain – the logical mind is the start of a creator-like existence.

Be warned though… your emotional mind will continually attempt to hijack by your logical brain.

You’ll want to have instant results, take shortcuts and cheat yourself …

This too is in your genetics…but don’t fall for it!

So how do you stick to the plan despite these primal attempts to disrupt your higher intentions?



Read on below.



Develop a mantra to enhance your work ethic so when you work, you do the work!.

Try this mantra out:

“Enjoy it. Engage it. Embrace it.”

You see, any work you do is no different to building a house, you must lay down each part – brick by brick – until it is done. Then you move onto the next section – the plumbing, then the electrical wires, roofing, interior decorations and so on until each small task is finished. Eventually the whole project is done and all that’s left is a masterpiece. Quality ensues.

When you build a house, you don’t cheat – you can’t – as it’ll be obvious you skipped a section. Instead, the mantra, “Enjoy it. Engage it. Embrace it.” Will hold you strong and steady for the long haul until quality emanates from your work.

Whenever you feel like taking a shortcut, repeat the mantra, “Enjoy it. Engage it. Embrace it.”

You’ll get your tasks done well and the finished product will be worth the effort.


Remember: the process is the gift – that’s why it’s called the present. Fall in love with the process and you will arrive.
