S3-19: Reis Paluso: Comfort Kills!

“I can now generate heat and then move it throughout my body.” ~Reis Paluso

Brian Tracy has famously said, “Comfort is the great enemy of success.” So, the question is, “HOW COMFORTABLE ARE YOU?”

Reis Paluso is an amazing young man. Martin knows this well as Reis was one of his first “campers” way, way back in 1994-5 at Kreative Kids Computer Camp (Poway/San Diego).

Martin recounts Reis’ amazing computer skills as a young lad and reflects on the joy and challenge of his first “real” entrepreneurial venture with his amazing partners (partners MG still has to this day).

Reis shares in the Kreative Kids memory; learning HTML, multi-media skills (in the early days of the internet) and of course how he became a 46 wpm typist, at age 12!

However, the MEAT of the this episode is all about Reis’ and his recent voyage into the icy mountains of POLAND (bordering on Czech Republic). He ventured there in a quest to learn and experience the Wim Hof Method at an advanced level retreat. And, Reis confirms, this experience really elevated (so to speak) his Wim Hof practice to a whole, new level. (See links below for more about Hof himself).

After many days in an entirely foreign environment, RP shares how he had an emotional “release” really a massive personal breakthrough that he’d never anticipated and it was a direct result of this endeavor which culminates with him hiking up  Mount Snezka (in -15C or, 5ºF) shirtless, with just shoes and shorts on!!

Check out this fun and powerful episode!

Talk about getting out of your comfort zone!!!

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.

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!

S3-10: 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!

S3-7: Jack Daly, Lifestyle By Design

“My goals are posted on my website for the world to see, JackDaly.net”

At 59, Jack Daly did his first Ironman Triathlon! Today’s he’s closing in on 100 marathons and has the goal to complete one on every continent! When Martin catches up with him in this H2G interview he’s preparing to go compete at the USA Triathlon “nationals”.

Jack wasn’t always an athlete and that’s at least one of the many lessons in this entertaining and educational episode. Jack Daly has an extensive list of “Bucket List experiences” an MBA and his sales expertise makes him a sought after speaker and consultant.

Although Jack’s real specialty (as far as Martin is concerned) is his philosophy of “lifestyle by design” and throughout the episode you will learn the important lessons and mindsets, tools and tactics that helped him craft his unique and inspiring life. Yes, YOU GUESSED IT, it comes down to his HABITS and GOALS! ; )

S02-INT12: Glenn R. Fox: How Gratitude is the Game-Changer


“The word is out… gratitude has incredible benefits.” ~Glenn Fox

In this entertaining interview, Glenn covers his journey toward graduate school and beyond. Citing stories of getting his top-level mechanics degree and his love of cars and, how being a mechanic served much of his mindfulness development.

His eclectic background combined with an element of chance ultimately leads Glenn to find a great mentor who recommendeds that he study an emerging field, “affective neuroscience”.

Glenn shares wonderful insights and studies related to neuroscience and gratitude and how for him he must “win the home field” — a great metaphor to help him remember it’s really about having healthy, quality relationships —that foster success.

Glenn R. Fox earned his PhD from USC’s Neuroscience Graduate Program and his extensive research regarding gratitude is widely published.

Just some of what Martin and Glenn cover:

-How across nearly all religions and philosophies Glenn has noticed that gratitude is a fundamental theme
-How mindfulness and gratitude are practices
-How emotion can help us to narrow the range of options
-How the brain process emotion

-How emotion influences our decisions and behaviors
-How we might better understand the value of emotions to make better decisions
-His influences like Antonio Damasio and Pema Chodron
even,
-Why Glenn sees envy as a positive emotion
And much more…

The point is emotion narrows the decisions we can make so we’re not just frozen… it’s useful and helps us make decisions — it probably exists for a reason.

S02-INT10: Andrew Ferebee: The Evolution of Knowledge For Men

“I was just doing it for myself. I was coming out of a break up and I had just quit my job and I was in a place of pain… it was a broken-hearted pain and a lost pain… I didn’t know what I was doing…”

If you know a young man ages 20- 45ish… Andrew Ferebee is the guy he should know and Knowledge For Men is the blog and podcast he should subscribe to!

That “pain” was the impetus that launched Knowledge For Men. Andrew Ferebee was grappling with extreme personal challenges and at the age of twenty-four began his blog as a way to help him sort out his issues, vent, pose some big life questions and at the same time share his journey.

Andrew became an avid personal development student, devouring hundreds of self help books, going to events and as he wrote about and shared what he learned his blog grew rapidly in popularity! Less than a year into his endeavor he had 700,000 views per month and recognized his struggle was resonating with thousands of young men around the world.

Today, his podcast, Knowledge For Men has over 2.4 Million downloads.

In this “in the studio”, in-person interview Martin and Andrew’s cover:

-The struggle, pain and confusion that launched the blog and podcast
-How he felt “lost” without purpose and direction
-How KFM was not about a business but about him sorting through his challenges
-His constant push and challenge to keep growing and push outside the comfort zone – example his weekend event that just wrapped up!
-What success is— how he defines it
– Why action is so important
– The perfect thing to say to the opposite sex and in even in public environments
– Three powerful and important habits he’s developed
– Some of his favorite/transformational books (below)

“I buy books like candy… I go into Amazon and I’m like a kid in a candy store…”

“If I didn’t hit my goal I would still count myself as a success because I still did it and the next time I do it I will be that much better.”

“I can learn whatever I need to learn to get where ever I want to get… that is what dating taught me and that is what a lot of these personal development books taught me.”
