S3-20: FAF – Right Goals?

Let everyone sweep in front of his own door, and the whole world will be clean.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

What are the right goals for a person to set?

The essence of great goal setting begins with “starting with your own house”

There happen to be four essential quadrants that truly reflect and indicate whether your own well being is in order: Mind, Body, Spiritual and Social. In fact, MG recalls, this is precisely the way The Habit Factor® app has been setup with specific “habit” categories. Remember, “Health is the first wealth” as Ralph Waldo Emerson has famously said.

Recalling the wellness / oneness circle: It’s an important exercise to divide your well being into these 4 Quadrants and then identify which of them needs immediate attention. Set your goal there first.

There’s another fantastic byproduct of goal setting!

“30% of the time you are going to set the wrong goal? and that is actually GOLD! Think about it; had you not set the goal, you wouldn’t have known it was the wrong one!”

“You’re wasting time NOT by setting the wrong goal. You are wasting time by not setting any goal and therefore, not getting the feedback/information you absolutely need.”

S3-18: MBM – Learning Mastery!


“We do not learn, and that what we call learning is only a process of recollection.” ~Plato

It seems we address certain types of learning differently than say preparing to perform. In other words, to prepare for a performance we will practice, practice, and practice some more. But, when it comes to learning something we expect to see or hear it once and completely know it and be able to recall it.

Crazier still, we tend to think we’re not too smart if we need to relearn the same lesson over and over again.

MG and HE challenge this idea. MG recalls how some of the audio lessons on his playlist he’s heard “hundreds” of times! The EXACT SAME lesson. And, he says, here’s the “crazy” thing? each time he seems to pickup and learn something new.

Why is that? How can you or I hear the same message three times, for instance, and learn or pickup something different each time?

They cover the various reasons behind this phenomena and then, ultimately, propose this is precisely what higher education is about? for instance what PhD students do! They study the SAME SUBJECT over and over and then again, some more. They GO DEEP vs wide (breadth) and cover the same topic from different angles and perspectives. And, because of this, they notice details, nuances and connections most people will never see.

This, learning the same things over and over and then some more, is really what we call expertise. This is what mastery really is!

S3-16: Klyn Elsbury: The Change-Maker

“Even in the most difficult times you are the one who gives your situation power by attaching a story to it”. ~Klyn Elsbury

Klyn Elsbury is one of the real change-makers of her generation! She’s written a bestselling book, taught a Zumba class, runs a recruiting firm and perhaps most incredibly has done ALL of these things while battling Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic disorder that affects mostly the lungs.

In fact, Klyn made her battle with Cystic Fibrosis public in 2015 in an effort to combat big pharma and make a critical drug affordable. “I was already taking about 20 other different medications daily, there was no way I could afford that $259,000 price tag so I wrote a heartfelt blog post and that ended up going viral.”

Klyn touches on all of this and shares with Martin a handful of key mindsets that allow her to stay strong and push through the tough days.

Klyn also shares how her company has uniquely positioned itself in the recruiting space, her take on “success”, her best habits, favorite app, and a great book she’s recently enjoyed (links below) all on this episode of Habits 2 Goals.

The Pyramid of Success


“Success is peace of mind, which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to do your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.” ~Coach John Wooden

What is success? How do you define it? Henry and Martin get DEEP into the subject of SUCCESS. What is it really? And, crazier still, how do YOU define it!?

Don’t think it’s important? This about this: It’s a given that 100% of people want to become a “success”. Yet, the large majority of people haven’t even taken the time to define what success means.

Do you have your own definition of success? Have you refined it and studied it?

Remember, it’s very difficult to hit a target that you can’t see!

SEE John Wooden “The Wizard of Westwood” and his success pyramid. FREE DOWNLOAD

Other definitions of success are explored: Earl Nightingale’s “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.”

And, Thoreau’s “If one advances confidently in the direction of their dreams and endeavors to live the life they imagine, they will meet with a success in common hours.”

It took Coach Wooden many years to find his correct formula. In 1934 he decided on the cornerstones, Industriousness and Enthusiasm, the two most important building blocks of the pyramid. Completing the foundation of the Pyramid are Friendship, Loyalty and Cooperation.

As the years went by, Coach Wooden built his Pyramid upon 14 building blocks of essential virtues (habits), leading to the apex, the final, 15th building block – Competitive Greatness.

On both sides of the Pyramid, in essence holding it together, are 10 words, including Ambition, Honesty and Integrity, once again all leading to the top, where Faith and Patience watch over Competitive Greatness.

Coach Wooden completed his ‘Pyramid of Success’ in the spring of 1948, and the original Pyramid drawing was on his office wall after he accepted the men’s basketball head coaching position at UCLA that same spring.

Some classic Wooden quotes:
“The best way to improve the team is to improve ourself.”

“Goals achieved with little effort are seldom worthwhile or lasting.”

“As long as you try your best, you are never a failure. That is, unless you blame others.”

“Much can be accomplished by teamwork when no one is concerned about who gets the credit.”

Great books by and about the legend!

S3-14: FAF – Opportunity Rising

The subject of this FAF (Frequently Asked Friday) rolls right out of MG’s GTR, “Good Things Report” which involves his recent visit to Dallas for Russell Brunson’s Funnelhacking live event.

If you’re not familiar, Clickfunnels is a powerful marketing/selling software solution developed to provide business owners (really anyone who sells anything online) an easy to build, and in many cases, a pre-built sales “funnel” ? a tool that drives prospects through a friendly sales process.

However, the question comes up, “What was the BIG takeaway from the 3 day event?” Martin’s response has almost nothing to do with the Clickfunnels software itself!

It’s an inspiring takeaway though and it should fire-up anyone who’s interested in promoting and selling their service/solution and/or products online.

Martin shares that a couple of the speakers at the event who used RB’s Clickfunnels software had sold upwards of $100,000 before they were 15.

One of the key messages from the kids who presented was “Adults just over-think things!”. So, if you’re an entrepreneur or really just about anyone, selling anything online ClickFunnels just might be the perfect fit for you.

This link provides a FREE 14 Day Trial to check it out!

S3-13: Henry J. Evans (Part Deux)

“You can change your destiny if you really understand marketing”.” ~Henry Evans
A reintroduction of our favorite co-host is in order since there have been many new subscribers and listeners between seasons. While Henry was interviewed in depth in Season II, we take some time in this short interview to chat with Henry about his expertise (marketing) and background as well as book and some thoughts on business and money!

Henry bounced around quite a bit as a kid, as his family moved about he ended up going to three different high schools! He attributes that experience to his outgoing personality. As a professional marketer, Henry recounts many of the key lessons learned (and those he wrote about in his book, “The Hour a Day Entrepreneur”) and how he was able to make the leap from the corporate world to full-time entrepreneur.

Henry drops a nugget at the end of the show, something Martin hadn’t heard before!

S3-12: MBM – Getting Unstuck and into the Flow


“Before fear becomes fear it is pressure.” ~Grunburg

Martin and Henry have a blast (so to speak) with this topic! How do you get unstuck? What should you do when you feel like your life is in a “rut”?

How does ANYONE get unstuck? Well, the answer is a bit counter-intuitive.

Martin recounts a little plumbing episode over the holidays. After fighting with a clogged drain for hours (blogpost here) he finally resorts to another tactic / tool offered by his neighbor to remove the clog.

The plumbing episode leaves him shaking his head as he realizes that the same physics required to unclog the drain (getting it unstuck) ought to be used when someone whats to get their lives “unstuck”!

S3-10: Overcoming Overwhelm

“I was facing some rejection from a lot of areas in my life… everything kinda caved in all at the same time.”

Meet Cathey F! An amazing woman and a long-time THF reader, app user and podcast listener. MG begged her to share her story about her semi-recent struggles and how she was able to breakthrough.

Cathey was in “total overwhelm”… trying to start a new business in the midst of a potential health crises, changes in her community, social circle and other difficulties made even tracking a few habits just too much.

Then, she signed up for a “Focus & Discipline” webinar hosted by MG and shares how some of that content combined with tracking certain key habits proved to help feed her ongoing breakthrough.

Every reader/listener is going through a challenge or will be! Her willingness to share her experience is likely to help others and bring great value to the audience!

Brilliant job ? thank you again Cathey!
