TMHS 155: The Perfect Day Formula: How To Own The Day And Control Your Life – With Craig Ballantyne

Have you ever had a perfect day?

It’s a day where everything seems to be in your favor. You accomplish all of the things you want. You feel happy and fulfilled. And you go to bed at night wishing that everyday can be just like this.

Aaaaah… It’s a day that has that new car smell. It’s feeling like you have the Midas touch. It’s when life is just flat out awesome.

So, why can’t we have more perfect days like that? Well, the obvious answer is because a lot of crap happens in our life, and it can take our wish of a perfect day and throw it right into the garbage disposal.

The less obvious answer is because we forfeited having our perfect day because we didn’t know the simple, proven steps to create it. The breaking news flash today is that we CAN construct more perfect days. But we have to decide to stop spending our days playing the game of crap-dodgeball that life is flinging at us. We have to be proactive and activate The Perfect Day Formula. And you’re about to meet just the man to help you do it.

Craig Ballantyne has long been admired in the fitness industry for helping people with busy lives and little time to achieve the physical results they want. In recent years he’s shifted his focus to helping people achieve the life they want, and not just the body they want (but you can still have that too). 🙂

He’s here today to share the ins and outs of The Perfect Day Formula to help you 1) identify what a perfect day means to you 2) implement simple strategies to help you create your perfect day and 3) execute on accomplishing what you want! This is a powerful episode to say the least, so tune in, take good notes, and grab these keys to creating your perfect day.

    For starters thanks for wealth of knowledge you are you are giving your community. I’ve been binge watching all your episodes and just listening to you talk so highly about all of these wonderful products interested me. So I went ahead and checked out and I like all of the products you have been talking about. Now I know about your sweet promotion with them but the thing for me is I’m 22 years old and I would love to get all of these products. But with the way things are that’s not realistic with my budget. I think a better plan for me would to get the products in increments. So my question is are there products that you would suggest getting first or try to find locally?
    Trying to become a better version of myself.
