S3-17: FAF – What is the Quickest Way to Happiness?


Today’s topic involves the age-old quest for humans to BE HAPPY! That’s it! “How can I be more happy?” Or as the title of the show suggests, “What’s the quickest way to happiness?”

As you might guess MG and HE have a few thoughts on the matter. Henry starts with a great recount of friend who “wasn’t particularly happy” and gives him an exercise to perform.

MG recounts a semi-related parallel story shared by the late, great Dr. Wayne Dyer.

Then they go off. The list of tips gets long enough for Henry to exclaim, “I think there’s a formula here!”

Give this FAF a listen and let us know if you don’t (or, do) come a way a little happier! ; )

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.

S3-14: 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.

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”!

S3-9: MBM – Master the Inner Game!

“All knowledge is based upon perceptual experience” ~Aristotle

Empiricism is a theory that states that knowledge comes only or primarily from sensory experience.

Here’s a couple questions to ponder deeply? 

“How real are certain “truths”? “How accurate is your knowledge particularly as it relates to the stories you tell yourself about your desires, goals and intentions?”

For instance, the US Supreme Court has nine justices? Why not just one? The reason is all nine people can and often see the same data, same experience and same “truth” differently. It turns out that their unique perception reveals to each a different story.

So, the question becomes, what story are you crafting about yourself? Which ones impose limits on you? How “real” are they? Are you certain that you can’t change the story to better support your ideals and goals. 

Knowledge is rarely static. Rather, we find that knowledge shifts around often throughout history. For instance, we know today that the world is round. There was a time that knowledge told all humans the world was flat. In middle school, we were taught that there are nine planets in our solar system. Today, knowledge tells us that there are just eight! Science told us for years that cholesterol was bad. Today there is good and bad cholesterol.

So, if your story (knowledge) isn’t serving you or your goals, CHANGE IT!

S02-Mind Bullet Monday 16: Permission Granted!

“Creativity takes courage.” ~Henri Matisss

This episode may be the perfect follow-up to last Friday’s Frequently Asked Friday (FAF), “What if I fail?”

With the thought of “failure” comes a lot of resistance that prevents many of us from ever getting started.

Similarly, when a person is considering taking on any creative endeavor, they often will unknowingly seek permission to begin— as though someone is going to grant them that ability.

What happens when you give yourself permission to:

-Take the first step
-Start that company
-Write that book
-Develop that app
-Start that blog
-Fail (at anything), etc.

Martin explores this idea that we (YOU) don’t need permission from anyone to begin your creative project/endeavor NOW and recognizes that had he sought permission to write The Habit Factor® or The Pressure Paradox™ or develop his apps, he could have been waiting a lifetime.

The interesting thing is not only was nobody going to grant him permission but the impact that the book and app have had on thousands of people around the world would have never come to pass.

Check out today’s episode and remove that last bit of resistance to get started today.

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-Mind Bullet Monday 11: Be Like Ben


“I hope, therefore, that some of my descendants may
follow the example and reap the benefit.” ~Benjamin Franklin

When it comes to personal development very few know that the great grandfather or the great, great grandfather of PD is Benjamin Franklin.

It’s hard to find a more prolific American than Benjamin Franklin yet most people don’t know that at a young age Ben believed himself to be abrasive, brash and argumentative and wrote about this in his autobiography.

He outlined thirteen virtues he hoped to assume as he matured. He was determined to start tracking each virtue, one per week, and would move to the next virtue rotating through all thirteen throughout the course of each year.
1. Temperance.
2. Silence.
3. Order.
4. Resolution.
5. Frugality.
6. INDUSTRY.
7. Sincerity.
8. Justice.
9. Moderation.
10. Cleanliness.
11. Tranquillity.
12. Chastity.
13. Humility.

YES! The path to virtue is via HABIT and this story got Martin thinking a lot about the similarity of tracking habits to achieve goals and Ben’s process of tracking habits to develop and refine his virtues.

Aristotle shared that Virtue is long-standing habit.

Martin shares this story to prove to ANYONE (who is committed) that they have within them the capacity AND a proven process to improve themselves.

Martin ends the episode with some of his favorite Ben Franklin quotes:

“Your net worth to the world is what you get when you subtract your bad habits form your good ones”

“Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise”

“A penny saved is a penny earned.”

“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”

“Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.”
