"Narrative imagining—STORY—is the fundamental instrument of thought. Rational capacities depend upon it. It is our chief means of looking into the future, of predicting, of planning, and of explaining." ~Mark Turner

EVERYTHING is a F*cking STORY goes on sale 10.1.22!
Grab the FREE excerpt while available: https://everythingastory.com

"EVERYTHING" culminates nearly 20 years of deliberation, collaboration, and meditation, all in the interest of deconstructing human behavior for the purposes of goal achievement.

EVERYTHING debuts as a "prequel" and completes a "trilogy" MG never knew existed. Martin began writing The Habit Factor® shortly before 2005; it was published in 2010. Then, in 2015, The Pressure Paradox™ was published.

EVERYTHING
  breaks new ground (similar to The Habit Factor® in 2010). Its innovative 3 Circles of Behavior Echo-System is both a model and framework that's already made an impact on coaching circles worldwide.

In this episode, MG shares the emergence of the 3 Circles of Behavior Echo-System and how it is the result of the trilogy. Further, MG explains how it sharply contrasts with any and all existing and prevalent behavior models.

For instance, the behavior models CBT and TTM demonstrate behavior in a linear and/or circular fashion. The 3 Circles of Behavior Echo-System suggests that the core influencers of our behavior echo or reverberate to influence each other (non-linearly).

MG peers deeper into congitive linguistics insights relative to "compression" and "scripting." All told, these ideas add a depth and richness that make EVERYTHING an educational and entertaining read.
 
 
This is the second of a six-part series leading up to the presale on 10.1.22.

Praise for Grunburg's new book, "EVERYTHING"

“A very remarkable book! This book shows you how to overcome hidden thoughts and beliefs that may have held you back for decades...don't be surprised if you feel liberated overnight!”

Brian Tracy
Personal Development Legend | Author of over 70 books

"Grunburg's ‘Three Circle’ behavior model is paradigm shifting—it's helped to transform our executive coaching. Because of ‘Everything,’ we teach, coach, and train: ‘Change your story, change your habits, change your life.’”

Peter Chee
President & CEO, ITD World, Master Executive Coach

"A profound personal development trilogy—read this book! At myNeuroGym.com, we've taught for well over a decade that when you want to improve your results, in any area of your life, the very first place to begin is your thinking! Martin's work with Everything makes that singular message reverberate so loudly and clearly that you'll find yourself constantly assessing your own stories, relative to any new results you desire, in any area of your life."

John Assaraf
New York Times Bestselling Author,
Having it All and The Answer

"In a sea of regurgitated personal development ideas, Grunburg’s work is refreshingly out-of-the-box and filled with powerful insights. Read this! Absorb and practice these ideas and reap the rewards!"

Kevin Daum
Inc. 500 entrepreneur,
Six-time bestselling author, Inc. Columnist

Powerful! As founder of the world’s largest entrepreneurial organization (EO), a recurring theme—a pattern—reveals itself among the most successful entrepreneurs: They have the habit of driving a hopeful, optimistic narrative—a compelling STORY—not just for their companies, but for their lives, families, and in many cases, their communities. Every entrepreneur’s journey begins and ends right here!

Verne Harnish
Author of stories, CEO of Scaling Up

"Martin may be the best-kept secret in the world of behavior change. His work on habit is intuitive, practical, and impactful. In this book, he correctly highlights our natural drive for storytelling and how we can direct the stories we tell ourselves. This change in narrative is at the heart of personal transformation. Grunburg’s approachable prose and flow shows much wisdom and is straightforward to apply. I hope more people learn about these ideas and about Martin in the coming years!"

Glenn R. Fox, PhD
Neuroscientist and Asst. Professor of Clinical Entrepreneurship,
USC Marshall School of Business

"If I gave you $1,000 to track 3 habits for one day could you do it? Everyone knows that they could!"

Martin recaps seven notable and common mistakes people make when trying to develop new habits.

#1) They forget IT'S A PROCESS! Unfortunately, many believe habit tracking is an ALL or nothing proposition! "It doesn't matter if you've failed 163 times, you are experimenting—keep trying!"

#2) They simply put a dot next to the habit and move on! When it comes to habit tracking, do NOT do what 99% of habit trackers recommend...simply put a dot and move on. Don't do that! Search: "P.A.R.R. Plan, Act, Record & Reassess and The Habit Factor"

#3) They focus on THE NEGATIVE HABIT. Put your energy and focus into cultivating the NEW habit! Put more time and attention on the new habit that should replace the old one.

#4) They do not understand what a "Tracking period" is. People do not understand the significance of "Tracking Periods" and exactly HOW LONG THEY SHOULD BE TRACKING! How long do you think you should be tracking?

#5) They do not add notes to their tracking! When it comes to tracking, besides adding a dot (which is very weak), they don't add comments! Adding notes to your tracking reaffirms your commitment and your intention!

#6) They think bursts of energy are important. The cultivation of habit rests upon consistency over a period of time. Daily bursts of energy do not facilitate habit development. It may feel good to give yourself many dots in one day, but it's not valuable relative to habit development.

#7) They underestimate the influence that the environment has on cultivating habits.
 
Personal mastery is simply a one-day-at-a-time 'event'.

If you can "win" today, you can do "win" tomorrow. Do that more days than not, and you'll compile a remarkable life! It begins with habit tracking the RIGHT WAY! ; )

For more info: just google P.A.R.R. and The Habit Factor! 👊

"Habits and goals, by design, complement each other."

 
Oh, the irony. When The Habit Factor® was published in 2010, the idea of using habits to achieve goals as a process for goal achievement was unheard of.

The Habit Factor's subtitle demonstrates its originality at the time: An Innovative Method to Align Habits with Goals to Achieve Success.

Due to its predominantly negative connotation, all of the prior goal achievement best practices excluded habit entirely.

Processes like S.M.A.R.T. goals did not mention habits.
Even scientific research papers that studied the relationship between habits and goals missed this important concept: The cultivation of habits, when aligned to a goal, will help you to achieve your goal more quickly.

Fast forward to today, and it's almost like the exercise where 10 people line up to pass along a message. As the message moves from one person to the next, it becomes bastardized.
 
The same can be said for The Habit Factor's original message. Somewhere along the way, habits have somehow become "better" than goals. This is erroneous and dichotomous; they complement each other.
 
In this episode, MG reviews a few distinct qualities about each and how they work together.

Enjoy the show!

"Everything is difficult before it is easy." ~Thomas Fuller

Resistance comes in many forms. The wind is a terrific example.

It turns out that without any wind trees cannot grow strong and will topple over.

The same is observed in our life. If we are without resistance—if there is no pressure—how can we grow stronger?

Pursing goals and ideals provides ample resistance to grow, learn and become stronger.

Lifting weights, as an example, proves resistance makes us stronger.

The wind offers other clues. MG happens to notice that even boats lying at anchor, FACE THE WIND.

This is analogous to us facing our problems as opposed to avoiding them.

Jen shares a story of finally facing a business banking issue after avoiding it for a long time.

The result: She was relieved and all that anticipated pain was way overblown. She was even able to be of service to the banker.

The moral of the story: Most of the time, facing our challenges is our best course of action.

The wind teaches us how we can grow and become stronger!
