"Success, happiness, contentment, joy, accomplishment—all of these things hinge on one’s ability to tame the mind. To be conscious and aware. To make our minds our servants not our masters." Jay Harrington, LifeandWhim.com

Jay Harrington is an entrepreneur, father, husband and adventurer who went from living the American dream to really living the American dream.

He joins us today for fresh perspective on one of our ongoing topics: training the mind. I discovered Jay’s great work while researching for our Self-Discipline series, through a blog article called Training the Mind: The Most Important Workout You’ll do in 2019.

He opens with a problem: his mind not behaving the the way he would like. I can relate. We discuss several practices to gain more control and to get unstuck.

Training the mind requires conscious living.

Conscious living requires engagement in life, inside and outside ourselves.

Engagement in life requires a steady exposure to novel, uncomfortable experiences.

One of the cornerstone ideas of Jay’s blog: "Through life experience and lots of research, we’ve learned that the best way to live a long, happy life is to prioritize having more experiences over having more things. But not just any experiences; the ones that matter most are those born of First Moments." We’ll discuss this quest in detail in our conversation today.

The downloadable version of The Ideas Into Action Summit is now available. You can learn more about the presenters, topics, bonus materials and encore presentation HERE.
