"Be like water..." ~Bruce Lee

[STEP #9, MASTERY, in this BREAKTHROUGH mini-series, "How to Make 2018 Your Best, Breakthrough New Year Ever!"]

Step #9 =  The Mastery Mindset!

Step #1: Decide
Step #2: Assess
Step #3: Values, Mission and Vision
Step #4: Passion & Purpose
Step #5: Energy & Enthusiasm
Step #6: GOALS!
Step #7: HABIT! HABIT! HABIT!
Step #8: HabitStrength™

When you think about the concept of "mastery" what comes to mind?

Martin begins this show reviewing that invariably, after you go through each of the first 8 steps, you will come upon OBSTACLES.

It's the true Master who regards obstacles as simply opportunities in disguise.

Recall, that there are three great constants in life; change, choice and principles.

Therefore the idea of mastery as a destination— an arrival point— can only be an illusion.

If change is a constant, and it is, the idea of perpetual learning to become a "master" is essential.

In this episode Martin recaps the very traits essential to the Mastery Mindset and even takes his cue from an unlikely source, H2O.

The mastery mindset encapsulates a lot of ideas, including; the "beginner's mind" OR the idea that "every day is day one".

The real master never arrives and is therefore, always arriving.

"Every day is day one." ~Kelly Slater

a couple great books to help form the Mastery Mindset

-The obstacle is the WAY

-MASTERY

-The GRIT Pyramid- (How to develop the HABIT of GRIT)

Don't forget out The Pressure Paradox™ ; )

"Discipline is a habit. GRIT is a habit. The more good behaviors you can habituate the less you will need to rely on willpower."

[STEP #8,  (week #8) in the BREAKTHROUGH mini-series, "How to Make 2018 Your Best, Breakthrough New Year Ever!"]

Step #OCHO =  HabitStrength!!

Step #1: Decide
Step #2: Assess
Step #3: Values, Mission and Vision
Step #4: Passion & Purpose
Step #5: Energy & Enthusiasm
Step #6: GOALS!
Step #7: HABIT! HABIT! HABIT!

And, now we delve into... part deux of Habit; HabitStrength!

Think about habit development just like muscle development. It isn't about a set number of days, it's about a process and the P.A.R.R. process/method we covered in the last episode.

People don't go to the gym and ask, "How long will it take to develop my biceps?"

No. They start with 15lbs and curl that weight until within a few weeks it feels light (they get stronger) so they up the weight to 20lbs then 25, 30, 35lbs, etc.

Each successive week of planning, acting, recording and reassessing helps to develop the muscle and coincidentally the related HABIT.

This is how one creates automaticity (a stronger habit) so you do not have to rely on willpower from one day to the next.

Repeat after me: DISCIPLINE is a HABIT. GRIT is a Habit.

 

"Habit is second nature, or rather, ten times nature." William James

"Cosmic Habit Force is the greatest of all natural laws. It is Nature's comptroller through which all other natural laws are coordinated.
~Napoleon Hill

[STEP #7,  (week #7) in the BREAKTHROUGH mini-series, "How to Make 2018 Your Best, Breakthrough New Year Ever!"]

Step #7 =  HABIT! (Cosmic Habit Force, Habit Alignment & P.A.R.R.)

Step #1: Decide
Step #2: Assess
Step #3: Values, Mission and Vision
Step #4: Passion & Purpose
Step #5: Energy & Enthusiasm
Step #6: GOALS!

And, now we delve into... HABIT!

HABIT. HABIT. HABIT.

It's worthwhile to keep in mind that when The Habit Factor® was first  introduced, habit was an afterthought if any thought at all when it came to goal achievement. This was primarily due to its negative connotation, "smoking, drinking, drugs," etc.

Even in what is regarded as one of the best self-help books of all time, Think & Grow Rich, habit, as a force for goal achievement was NOT identified, not as a specific process to develop and align habits to one's goals. In fact, it took Mr. Hill (link) in his own words, another "twenty years" to recognize what he left out of Think & Grow Rich. It was HABIT or as he put it, "Cosmic Habit Force"

So, what does this mean to you?

In real words/language? Simply, put, HABIT or, Habit Alignment Technology™ is the most efficient way for your to achieve your goals.

In this episode, Martin specifically talks about the force of habit and / or Cosmic Habit Force plus, Habit Alignment Technology™ and the P.A.R.R. methodology to create enduring, positive habits.

"Habit is second nature, or rather, ten times nature." William James

"Success is goals, and all else is commentary.
~Brian Tracy

[STEP #6,  (week #6) in the BREAKTHROUGH mini-series, "How to Make 2018 Your Best, Breakthrough New Year Ever!"]

Step #6 =  GOALS!

Step #1: DECIDE.
Step #2: Assess
Step #3: Values, Mission and Vision
Step #4: Passion & Purpose
Step #5: Energy & Enthusiasm

And, now we're on to step #6, GOALS!!!

BT is a hero and a living legend in the personal development space and I'm fairly sure NOBODY has created more quality personal development content than Mr. Brian Tracy.

Point is... the man is a walking 'master-class' in personal development and if he's suggesting goals are (equal to) success, than we probably ought to pay more attention to them, right?

So, in this episode we do just that...

Zig Ziglar used to say, "Don't be a wandering generality, you must become a meaningful specific."

Goals allow us to become a meaningful specific.

What is your #1 Goal right now?
Where is that goal written?
Is it posted somewhere were you can see it?
Do you revisit your goals often? If so, how often?

Why are goals so darn important? First if our energy (recall last episode) can, at any moment, go in any number of different directions than goals force us to focus our energy and attention! Goals help us to concentrate and direct our precious energy toward something that matters to us.

So why don't most people set goals? Largely because A) they don't really understand the importance of goals. And, B) they don't understand the process to set and achieve goals.

This episode is all about "A" above... Really, understanding the importance of goals to the point where we can't ignore them and the next couple weeks we will dig into The Habit Factor's method for goal achievement!

Remember, each week we provide a tool or template to help you process and implement the week's lesson and this week is no different!

"Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
~R.W. Emerson

[Here's STEP #5 (week #5) in our BREAKTHROUGH mini-series, "How to Make 2018 Your Best, Breakthrough New Year Ever!"]

Step #5 =  Energy & Enthusiasm!

Step #1 was about Deciding.
Step #2 was about Assessing
Step #3 was about Values, Mission and Vision
Step #4 was about Passion & Purpose

And, now we're on to Energy & Enthusiasm!

It's simple math really... YOU are energy and your goal is going to require energy in order to be achieved. 

Mark twain once quipped, "And what is a man without energy? Nothing— nothing at all."

It cannot be over-stated... the quality of your energy and enthusiasm will have a direct influence upon the achievement of your goals.

The quality of your energy and enthusiasm will have a direct influence upon your goals! #habits #goals (tweet that one ; )

So, when it comes to your "energy being" what do you do DAILY to optimize your energy?

What is your diet like? Have you fine-tuned your diet lately? Are you tracking any habits related to your diet? Are you tracking any diet objectives? For instance how many glasses of water you drink a day?

What about your exercise? What exercise habits are you tracking?

If "health is the first wealth" and it is. Consistently optimizing your wellness, health/energy system is an essential foundation of goal achievement and and will help ensure that your next year will be your best year ever!

"The unexamined life is not worth living.
~Socrates

[This is STEP #4 in our BREAKTHROUGH mini-series, "How to Make 2018 Your Best, Breakthrough New Year Ever!"]

Step #4 =  Passion & Purpose.

Step #1 was about DECIDING.
Step #2 was about ASSESSING
Step #3 was about Values, Mission and Vision

And, now we're on to passion and purpose!

You may be thinking... "Oh no! More work!?"

Recall Lao Tzu's famous statement, "Knowing others is wisdom, knowing our self is enlightenment""

So, in this episode, we do exactly that, further examine ourselves; our passions,  strengths, weaknesses and in the process may just discover our purpose.

The good news is this, if you've been struggling to identify your purpose, chances are these exercises are going to help get you a lot closer.

Finally, to underscore the significance of this important step, "Your purpose in life is to find you purpose and give your whole heart to it." ~Buddha

"Work harder on yourself than you do on your job. When you work hard on your job you make a living and when you work hard on yourself you'll make a fortune.
~Jim Rohn

[NOTE: This is our NEW YEAR BREAKTHROUGH Series, "How to Make 2018 Your Best Breakthrough New Year!"]

Step 1# is about deciding. Step #2 is about awareness and assessment.

So, STEP #3 is...

YOUR CORE VALUES. MISSION and VISION

That sounds like some work doesn't it? Which is why 95% of people never go through these exercises. They require deep introspection, humility and courage.

But, it's no coincidence that the greatest organizations and companies do these exercises they have figured this out.

Truth is, it was only after doing this exercise for my company that I realized I HAD TO DO THIS FOR MYSELF and it was a game-changer!

Thus, it's part of the FOUNDATION for our Personal Breakthrough Series.

Why don't most people do these exercises for themselves? First, they require work (time and energy). The other reason is people begin to doubt themselves and wonder if they know what their values are, or what their Mission statement ought to say. It take time and careful introspection.

Hence, such self questioning is the very proof that these are personal, mental exercises that MUST BE DONE!

***TIP*** DO NOT WORRY about getting it "RIGHT" the first time or even the fifth time, this is a PROCESS. It will take time to get to a point where you are happy with what you've produced and feel comfortable with the results. Remember, you are working with clay here and not marble.

"Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things, they are transformed.
~Thich Nhat Hanh

[NOTE: This is our NEW YEAR BREAKTHROUGH Series (at least 8 new episodes, taking you step-by-step, "How to Make 2018 Your Biggest Breakthrough New Year!"]

If Step # was about DECIDING (and it was), this week is all about awareness and assessment.

STEP #2: Assess.

This episode we're reminded that all information is good information if we're honest and courageous enough to shine the light on ourselves. To that end, Martin shares another Jim Rohn classic quote, "Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job. If you work hard on your job you can make a living, but if you work hard on yourself you'll make a fortune."

Turns out, we ALL tend to go bust our butt at our jobs working 40+ hours every week but how much time are we spending on our own personal development and improvement?

The point is, now that we've DECIDED we are going to change, it's time for US to get to work on ourselves and become the change we seek.

"The world makes way for the man that knows where he is going." Emerson once famously said. Awareness and assessment both allow us to direct the change rather than just being subjected to its constant force.

And, it all starts with becoming aware and assessing ourselves.

"You cannot change your destiny over night but you can change your direction.
~Jim Rohn

[NOTE: This is the first in our, NEW YEAR Series (at least 8 NEW episodes, taking you step-by-step, "How to Make 2018 a Breakthrough Year!"]

Most people "want" some change and / or improvement in their life. But "wanting" is not the same is making a clean and clear delineation. DECIDING what specifically will change for the better is entirely different than wanting or hoping.

STEP #1: DECIDE.

Martin shares a Tony Robbins' great quote, "A real decision is backed by action." This helps to take us out of the realm of "wishing" or "wanting" and moves us toward a definitive DECISION and gaining some real momentum.

Turns out, the Latin root and meaning of decide is to "cut-away". "To me that means we are intent on cutting-away from our old habits and eager to setup/begin new behaviors/habits that we can align to our new goal!"

Deciding is the beginning of transformation!

Deciding is that fundamental first step and a real decision implies commitment!

Think about how you get anything significant accomplished, you first say to youself, "I am going to ______________" That could be as simple as going to the bank or store or something far more meaningful as getting out of debt. It starts with the decision!

I AM GOING TO _________________________________

 [NOTE: Don't miss STEP #2 NEXT WEEK! You have an entire week to determine you BIG DECISION and don't forget you can print out your DECISION TEMPLATE below and post it in your favorite room or office.

Enjoy and share! Thank you!]

"The freedom of tomorrow lies in the discipline of today."

The "BIG" idea for this mind-bullet Monday revolves around the importance of implementing controls and constraints into our lives.

"Controls and constraints!?" You may be saying, "That sounds horrible, uncomfortable and pretty lame!"

Well, it turns out that controls and constraints tend to be precisely the types of parameters that can help you forge new behaviors (habits) to assist you in achieving your goals more quickly.

Even The Habit Factor's P.A.R.R. methodology demonstrates this with its frequency per week, minimum success criteria, and tracking period (4 weeks).

Perhaps more importantly (and paradoxically): It turns out that freedom is born from controls and constraints. Consider the person who never develops and institutes any controls and constraints in their life (diet, exercise and or/finances, etc.). This is a person who will likely struggle for a long time.

Conversely, the person who institutes controls and constraints (disciplines) related to the same subjects (diet, exercise and finances) will enjoy greater freedoms down the road.

Hence, the path to greater freedom in your future is to institute greater disciplines today.

"I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.” ~Douglas Adams

By: Martin Grunburg

It's great to be back in the saddle and while this is NOT the official kick-off of Season 4 (Habits 2 Goals Podcast), it is my effort to get you caught up and share at least one of the great lessons I recently experienced.

Admittedly, you're gonna have to be a little patient (it takes a while to set the table here) but coincidentally patience is a component part of this lessons anyway! ; )

Today, I share a bit about my long-standing partnership (23+ yrs) and it's official separation... all good, mostly. The fact is we'd been partners (3 of us) longer than most marriages exist and with our company's recent win of a prime contract award (defense) AND, given that they are in the neighborhood of 70 years old an exist strategy presented itself.

How and why this may relate to you.

Entrepreneurs (people in general) love to cling to motto's, slogans, trite and not so trite sayings, that guide and drive them and their decision making.

For instance, "Hire slow and fire fast." Almost every entrepreneur will tell you that is a MUST. Another is "Never settle!" or another, "revenue is vanity and profit is sanity."

All good stuff right? MOST of the time. Sometimes though, from my experience, I've witnessed a lot of challenge created from clinging to hard-set ideas and notions like these as though they are set in stone.

We've talked about it here many of times, dichotomous thinking can be very dangerous and ultimately creates a lot of friction, struggle and can even make one feel as though they are running in circles.

Let's use the above as examples; hard to argue with "profit is sanity and revenue is vanity". That's one of my favorites! EXCEPT -take Jeff Bezos and Amazon. I believe (at least for a day anyway, he just became the richest man in the world and for the most part his philosophy for Amazon was contrarian to that focused primary on revenue with little emphasis on profits.

Or, how about, "Never settle!" Sounds pretty amazing right? Imagine a life of never settling. Well, the last time I heard that advice it was from a guy who's now divorced and you can bet he "settled" in court.

What about "hire slow and fire fast". Nobody's ever complained that they fired someone too quickly, right? Again - most of the time this is credible and worthy advice. However, I can tell you I made one of my best hires in about 30 minutes over a beer.

So, what's the point?

BE OPEN-MINDED and do NOT RUSH if you do not have to. Don't cling to trite slogans for the sake of trying to simplify things for yourself and make your life easy... question your bias to lean into such decisions!

When it is not necessary to make a decision, it is necessary not to make a decision. ~Lord Falkland

In today's episode, I review my challenge/struggle to follow one great and romantic motto entrepreneurs love! "Burn the ships!"
Yet, incredibly, unbeknown to me there was another powerful motto directly competing with that philosophy. You can hear about it on the podcast site or download it in iTunes.

Harvard 80 year Happiness Study! (I reference)

 Slight correction I relate a great line from MASTERY a fantastic book by Robert Greene, the actual line is, "the greatest impediment to your creativity is your own impatience."

"God changes caterpillars into butterflies, sand into pearls and coal into diamonds using TIME & PRESSURE. He's working on you too” ~Rick Warren

[NOTE: Henry and I set out to complete 35 episodes for Season III and this is episode #41. If you've enjoyed the season as much as we did putting it together, PLEASE leave a review on iTunes ; ). Also, there are more shows coming! Be sure you are subscribed! Great news is on the way! Thank you!]

**Technical audio note: Apologies, we had tech issues again on Henry's end and he was forced to use a different device. At times, connection picks up various background noises. Apologies and appreciate your understanding! ; )**

Coming off the heels of the recent metamorphosis episode, MG shares what he considered might be his #1 tip/piece of advice as he responds to an email. The emailer is excited about The Habit Factor and asks MG, "Do you have any advice?"

At first Martin isn't too happy about the question, given the amount of "tips" and information already published. However, contemplating the question further, he shares what might be his favorite tip.

Henry then shares his two great tips! Spoiler alert, "We all just need to relax more often and enjoy the ride."

Henry's other great idea is powerful, "Be sure to surround yourself with goodness."

Taking control of our immediate environment and getting our daily dosage of great brain food ensure we "tune our minds to the right stations."

"Corey and I have two qualities that I think unite us. One, we are eternal optimists; we always believe our best day is coming.
The other thing is that we have a high risk tolerance. We’ll keep rolling the dice.
We like the idea of saying, ‘We’re going to bet on ourselves a little longer.'"
~Casey Wright

Few entrepreneurs seize an opportunity as quickly and as creatively as Casey Wright. He and his brother Corey, guided by their parents, were encouraged to explore this "internet thing" in the early 2000s, and in particular, how email marketing might help their real estate firm.

Their parents came to them and said they wanted to stop spending $100K on print marketing per year; the brothers thought email marketing might be the answer. To everyone's surprise, the strategy worked and Casey and his brother were off and running...sort of.

"The first year was exciting, and then you have six years of things not going the way you wanted them to; I'm seeing my friends working half as hard and making twice as much money and wondering if I should just go get in line and find a job."

Persistence, however, proved to be the path of least resistance. Ultimately, their content-marketing business took off and assumed a new and complementary spin: A Keller Williams office manager wanted to use the brothers' content-marketing process and apply it toward recruiting new agents! The proposition was, "If you can build this, we will buy it!"

Today, Casey employs the one bit of advice he would give his younger self: "Find a way to put the wind at your back!" Gorilla Goodies is doing just that; Casey's new venture is responsible for a couple internet smash-sensations, including The Hipster Nativity Scene and the (DT) Donald Trump Bobblehead

Enjoy the show and take note: He says, "Habit tracking is something I will ALWAYS do!" ; )

Brilliant work, Casey!

"There is nothing in a catapiller that tells you it's going to be a butterfly." ~Buckminster Fuller

[Note: *Apologies* The sound quality at times is compromised in this episode. Henry had to use his cell phone and there a a few moments (briefly) where  background noise interferes. Thanks for your patience and understanding.*]

"Habit is a cobweb at first and a cable at last." ~Spanish Proverb

Martin and Henry get after this one on the heels of a keynote presentation Martin recently did for IREM (institute for real estate management). He talks to Henry about how he inserted these same "two themes" at the front of the presentation because they applied so well to the REstart graduates who were being honored at the luncheon.

MG then discusses this powerful idea of transformation (preferring the term, "Metamorphosis") and our individual capacity to turn virtually any weakness into a strength using the force of habit.

Today it's popular in the personal development world to "ignore your weakness and just focus on your strengths". History is filled though with stories where the underdog went to work on his weaknesses instead of accepting them and turned them into life altering strengths!

Martin shares that his recent strengthfinder results prove this idea as his five "strengths" according to their extended survey are: strategy, relator, achiever, futurist, positivity.

The problem though with this idea of ignoring your weakness is (with attention) your weakness may be your greatest gift! Since weaknesses often call your attention, by harnessing habit you can turn almost any weakness into a strength.

"The Habit Factor wouldn't exist (book or app) if I just accepted my weakness!" 

Sometimes leaning into your weakness with infinite patience and sincere desire to improve is the best thing you can do. Especially if you follow P.A.R.R.

Enjoy!

"If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape one hundred days of sorrow.” ~Chinese Proverb

Not to long ago we had an entire episode about enhancing mindfulness. Today's topic is very related and it has to do with some ideas, tips and best practices, even mindsets around how to best control one's temper.

MG and Henry trade some tips and share some stories... Henry talks about his experience recently where he was so upset he had to go hit a punching bag (NOT people) for an extended period of time. "Try that for just one minute and you'll be winded and you'll also be addressing your 'fight or flight' natural response to anger and stress. It's a great way to address the pent up energy."

Martin then reflects on the very powerful and insightful statement: "Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom." Viktor E. Frankl 

Then, MG shares this gem from Thomas Jefferson, "When you are angry count to ten, and if very angry count to one hundred."

Check it out and hear how to keep your cool when frustration and anger set in!

Enjoy!

"If you're listening to this...I want you to try this for twenty-four hours. Think about every situation, and say to yourself, 'I am responsible.' If you don't do that you'll stagnate and never get ahead." ~Eric Berman

A varied and enviable background, EB has been a bachelor on the hit reality show Millionaire Matchmaker. He's stood in the winner's circle multiple times at Del Mar as part of the winning horse's ownership group. He's part owner in multiple popular restaurants throughout San Diego, and perhaps best of all (at least according to MG), he is long-term business partners with the personal development legend Brian Tracy.

EB begins the show sharing how some early career success with a Facebook-like company (collegeclub.com) in the '90s goes terribly sideways as it collides head first into the exploding dot-com disaster of the late '90s.

As "guy #3" in the fast-growing company, he was close to all the action when his company failed to qualify for a bridge loan amid the market collapse; before long they had to lay off 200+ employees and ultimately file bankruptcy.

EB shares how he adapted, took stock of what he did have, and kept moving. Not too much later a family friend connected him with Brian Tracy, and Eric shares his secret offer and strategy that makes his sales pitch a true no-brainer!

MG asks EB for his very best personal development /success tip after working so closely with BT for fifteen-plus years, and it comes down to just THREE WORDS! (minute 38:00)

"True nobility isn’t about being better than someone else, it’s about being better than you used to be." Dr. Wayne Dyer

Martin tackles this Mind Bullet Monday solo and labels it a bit of a hybrid episode since he bridges concepts and ideas from a couple prior episodes.

This episode is on the heels of the synchronicity/serendipity episode where Martin and Henry compare theories on ways to create an increased frequency of such events in our lives.

 Martin then adds some of the late, great Dr. Wayne Dyer's thoughts via his bestseller, The Power of Intention. Specifically where Dyer reviews the importance of aligning with the "FACE" of the "Creative" source.

In his book, Dr. Dyer spells out the "Seven Faces of Intention" Creativity, Kindness, Love, Beauty, Expansiveness, Abundance and Receptivity and how Dr. Dyer believed deeply that creating alignment / "matching up" with sources "Faces" of energy was essential.

Martin then takes the entire process a step further, and perhaps makes it sound/concrete by recommending to the listener that they focus upon and TRACK just ONE "FACE" at a time for four weeks following the habit factor method. This one step would mimic the process Benjamin Franklin used that was recently recounted on the a prior episode where Ben tracked his behaviors (habits) to create VIRTUES!

"Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh

Mindfulness matters. This is the age of distractions! "Smart" phones, social media, texting, etc., our attention span continue to shrink and yet the demand for our focus and attention (in order to achieve our goals and be more productive) has never been greater!

In this fun episode Henry and MG discuss some of their favorite tips to become more present and mindful. MG starts though with the important idea that BOTH habit and mindfulness (by design) are intended to work together.

The way to cultivate any mindless or subconscious behavior (habit) is often via repetition and practice so it becomes "automatic!" Think, "wax on" "wax off".

They exchange thoughts on various breathing exercises and MG tells Henry his favorite tip might just be to "tune in" to his senses; smell, touch, sight, sound, etc.

Henry mentions a neat visual, breathing exercise and his intention to be very present and aware with encounters with others.

MG and Henry both discuss the powerful influence water has on mindfulness (books below) and here's a link to the psychology exercise re: (RAISIN) that Martin mentions! It's a good one!

"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?

"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!

"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!

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!

“Lying in that hospital bed... I did a lot of soul searching...if I'm dying, am I the man I wanted to be?” ~John Lingham

Few people truly represent the American dream like John Lingham: Paying his own way through college while working as a busboy, and then ultimately becoming the owner of not one, but two restaurants. Today John Lingham has approximately 100 employees and is recognized throughout his community for his charitable giving.

The lessons John shares are many and the road hasn't been easy, but John continued to seek and learn, adapt and overcome, despite the many difficulties.

John then takes us inside a recent health scare/medical emergency he experienced as a side effect of medication for a skin rash. The experience left him helpless, with a white blood cell count of zero. He would spend 10 days tied to an IV that was keeping him alive. While the experience nearly killed him, he also shares how it provided many amazing insights about himself and the life he wants to live going forward.

MG and John then talk about his years of philanthropy and experience contributing to BAM (Build a Miracle) and Big Brothers Big Sisters. BAM provides homes for qualified residents south of the border. These brand-new homes include plumbing and electricity and prove to be complete game-changers for the entire family, providing not only a roof, but the dignity and self-respect to shoot for new and bigger goals!

Check out this fun and powerful episode and let John's journey (and many lessons) inspire you!

Talk about getting out of your comfort zone!!!
