S3-33: MBM – Talk, Talk, Talk

“Silence is the source of great strength.”

Talk, Talk, Talk.

Speaking for the most part is easy. Particularly about things we are GOING to do. However, doing them and the work they entail is hard.

Which do you choose?

While today’s topic has been touched upon? from various angles in prior seasons: In Season I it was SILENCE and CONCENTRATION and how silence is the source of GREAT strength and wisdom! Then, in season II’s FAF, MG addresses the question, “Should we announce our goals?

Today’s episode though is really inspired by Ryan Holiday’s latest book, “Ego is the Enemy“. A fantastic book where he’s devotes an entire chapter entitled, Talk, Talk, Talk to this idea that so many of us succubm to the easy? the idle, valueless, chatter.

How easy is it to post on twitter, “I’ve just signed up for my first marathon!” Versus, the challenge to actually sign-up and NOT post anything. Instead, to get busy training and save the big announcement for when the work is done and the goal is accomplished.

There is power in silence! And, here is some of the science that proves you should NOT talk about your goal (video below).

How easy it is to jump into the latest conversation on Facebook and express our opinions and share HOW this should be or that should or could be different or better! How hard it is to get busy working on and producing those solutions, creating value.

Which do you choose? Which creates VALUE and opportunity? Which one do you think supports goal achievement?

S3-32: FAF – Synchronicity


“The universe conspires to help the peaceful soul.”

Synchronicity and serendipity are seemingly magical events that appear at the most opportune time to aid a person. In fact, the definition of serendipity is:  a “fortunate happenstance” or “pleasant surprise”.

Synchronicity is a concept, first explained by analytical psychologist Carl Jung, which holds that certain events are “meaningful coincidences” if they occur with no causal relationship yet seem to be meaningfully related.

MG and Henry tackle this super-fun topic and discuss what they believe may be the key elements that help to contribute to such fortunate happenstances in one’s life.

Henry begins with the cornerstone, essential trait that enables these pleasant, magical surprises, optimism!

Martin echoes Henry’s comments and suggest that the spark in many ways is knowing exactly what your intention is; that is what you want, what your target/goal is and where you want to go!

The universe it seems can only offer up these “pleasant surprises” when you know what it is your are going after!
?
MG and Henry talk about a few other things that seem to accelerate these instances of serendipity and even comments that certain activities seem to enhance their likelihood, including; journaling, tracking  and writing down your goals for the day.?

Martin even brings up the RAS again and how a powerful element of The Habit Factor book came to be, due largely to pure Synchronicity!

TWITTER is a great environment for such events! Connect!

S3-31: Adam Dailey: Keep Moving Fast!


“I think I can somehow pay for us to live in Greece for a year… that was kinda how it all started.” ~Adam Dailey

Adam Dailey knows a thing or two about moving FAST. As a five-time All-American sprinter, Dailey ran for the University of Arkansas whose track teams racked up 9 NCAA titles while he was there

A bit later in life, Adam and his wife (also a former track star) did what seemed incomprehensible, if not impossible, traveling around the world on a twelve month sabbatical, with their (at the time) four children!

That journey is at the heart of this episode and interview and it’s what inspired Adam to write his #1 Amazon bestseller, “How to Run Away From Home: And Take Your Family With You.

Adam recounts much of his early struggles in an entrepreneurial venture that stemmed largely from some overly-aggressive growth goals and shares how he was able to overcome what amounted to, at one point, losing about a million dollars in just one month!

Adam shares his best tips and insights about travel and warns the listener not to fall into the trap where travel seems to either be about the past or the future. He insists that NOW is almost always the very best time to travel. So listen up and get packing!

You can find Adam’s bestseller here!

S3-30: MBM – DEATH.

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.” ~Steve Jobs

Martin and Henry attempt to tackle this MASSIVE MBM, “Mind Bullet Monday” topic? the unlikely value that is inherent in death.

While death is a tragic? the IDEA of death especially to the living ; ) provides immense value when it is used as a tool to inspire immediacy and action and add more life to the present!

Martin says, “I had no idea we were going to go here but, Steve Jobs commencement speech at Stanford immediately comes to mind.” “Consider” he says, how Jobs’ acute awareness to his limited amount of time might’ve factored as a catalyst to Apple’s growth in his final years.”

Martin even reads a few sentences from Jobs’ Stanford 2005 commencement speech:

“… It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.”

Henry praises his wife and her sense for immediacy and action and doing things that are important recognizing there really are no guarantees.

MG insists that just the word and idea of death forces one to think immediately about life and even how they are living and of course, what they want to accomplish BEFORE they die! If you heard the John Lingham episode #S3-025 know this to be true! Then both MG and HE review a few short and powerful exercises that YOU CAN DO around the idea of death to inspire action and more LIFE TO YOUR LIFE!

Check it out and enjoy the show! ; )

S3-29: FAF -What’s the #1 Trait for Success?

SUCCESS! Seems everyone wants it and today’s question is (if there is one) what is the #1 trait that determines one’s success.

Both MG and Henry recognize this could easily result in multiple-days worth of discussions and certainly there are hundreds if not thousands of books written on the matter. Having said that, they both manage to narrow their answer down to a few, very select traits.

The best part (as you know) is any of these traits is create-able via the magical force of HABIT!

Tune in and then let MG and Henry know what YOU think the #1 trait is!

S3-28: Evan Saxon: Still “Right Between The Acts”

“I presented this idea to the executives at Capitol Records and they kinda just laughed me out of the building…” ~Evan Saxon

After a funny and bizarre episode open… where Martin says, “I’m not even going to edit that!” the two settle in and get to the business at hand.

Evan shares his bumpy early academic career bouncing between junior colleges and SDSU / Northridge Universities. Ultimately, Evan drops out, as he puts it, “the pursuit of a career got in the way of my pursuit of a degree.”

Consumed by his passion for music and the music industry, Evan got his lucky break starting out as an intern at IRS Records. Then he moved into the marketing division of Capitol Records where he was offered a paid position. “I loved it! I didn’t care what time I had to get up or how late I had to work. I was having a great time!”

Years later, a bit disillusioned by what he saw in multiple executive meetings ? fighting the status quo “losing control vs. taking control” as Evan puts it, he realized it was time to move on.

One night at a Aerosmith  / Skid Row concert a wild idea occurred to him. A totally innovative concept (at the time) that proved to be ground-breaking. He realized that he could promote new bands and music in between the opening bands and the headliners. Evan then negotiated deals with music retailers for shelf space, “Right Between the Acts” was born.

Continuing to adapt to the ever-changing music and technology environments, Evan’s company today, Evan Saxon Productions (ESP), helps to promote and distribute content via a worldwide network of theaters.

Check out his website and some of his latest promotions.  EvanSaxonProductions.com

S3-27: MBM – Abundance!


“Anything other than a win/win is, ultimately, a lose/lose.” ~Dr. Stephen Covey

Quick question: Are you really a “big-pie” person or are you concerned that if someone takes a piece of the pie there won’t be anything left for you?

Which are you? BIG PIE or SMALL PIE?

MG and HE get right to business and discuss this massive mental shift. Martin confesses that growing up with a very competitive mindset his early entrepreneurial struggles were exacerbated by thinking to win someone else had to lose.

“One of the key lessons for me”, Martin shares, “Is this idea of big pie vs small pie mentality and how there could, and should be multiple winners.” The idea Covey shared changed how I negotiated and treated everyone; employees, vendors and customers etc.

Henry comments that in the movie “Wall Street” Gecko’s claim that “It’s a zero-sum game: somebody wins, somebody loses.” is just plan wrong!

They talk about all the examples of businesses and owners who’ve given away ownership and stock within their companies to form tens and hundreds of millionaires; Google, Microsoft, SAIC, etc. Abundance, after all is a win/win, BIG Pie mindset and not just some new age, phoo phoo feel good language.

S3-26: FAF – Rapport!


Rapport! The value of rapport is truly incalculable. Relationships (excuse the cliche) are everything! And, some people seem to have much more success establishing it than others.

Martin shares a story as he witnessed his mentor and business partner establish instant rapport with a new client prospect and then MG challenges Henry to offer up the goods because, like his partner, Henry is a master of this.

Henry shares his best tips including the essence of rapport in many ways is to be MORE INTERESTED in others and put less effort and focus in yourself, trying to be interesting.

Check it out and learn some other great tips on building rapport!
