"We assume that circumstances shape our stories. But what I’ve found time and again in my work is that the exact opposite happens; the way we narrate our lives shapes what they become."
"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.
In this episode, MG recaps Lorie Gottlieb's important observation and overlays it against James Allen's insight, "You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you." The implications become inescapable: OUR THOUGHTS DIRECT OUR FUTURE.
MG uses this to build upon the idea of the innovative 3 Circles of Behavior Echo-System and how these thoughts reverberate across this Echo-System that everyone lives within. Further, this "echo-system" provides a way to detach, distance oneself from their stories to assess their value.
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 third of a six-part series leading up to the presale on 10.1.22

"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!"
