Happiness Requires Daily Effort – PART 3

 

“I’m too busy to tell people how busy I am.” – someecards

Charlie Munger, the long-time business partner of Warren Buffett, once mentioned that there are weeks when the only thing scheduled on Buffett’s calendar is a haircut. His calendar will literally say,

“Tuesday: Haircut day.”

Buffett also doesn’t use email or a smartphone.

Without an overly busy schedule, without email, and without a smartphone, he manages to run a company with $240 billion in revenue and 377,000 employees.

I think we all can be a little less busy.

This is the final part in a three-part series I’m sharing with you on using research from positive psychology to improve your well-being. Continue reading “Happiness Requires Daily Effort – PART 3”

Amazing Selling Machine Review From Stefan James of Project Life Mastery

The Amazing Selling Machine is a comprehensive course that is purely focused on getting results for people. I’ve gotten great results from the program, as has my girlfriend, brother and others that I have recommended this course to.” -Stefan James, Founder of ProjectLifeMastery.com 

ASM Delivers for Physical Product Pros

“In 2014, Physical Product Pros Co-Founder Nate McHenry tossed all of his savings into a course called Amazing Selling Machine. As a high school teacher, this was a risk that could propel a dream of time and location freedom or drain resources that were hard to build up. The course delivered exactly what he hoped for and more. 4 years later, Nate, along with Physical Product Pro business partners Ben & Charity Devries and Paul & Rachelle Baron have helped hundreds of other people experience the joys of financial, time and location freedom through the Amazing Selling Machine. There is no other online training course that better equips and delivers students with a real business selling on Amazon. We’ve had the privilege of coaching hundreds of students and sharing in their powerful success stories.” -Physical Product Pros

This is one program I never have a problem promoting, because customers get results, period.”  -Jeff Lenney

One Size Does NOT Fit All – PART 2

 

One size fits all is usually one size fits nobody.

Whether it’s the optimal diet, the optimal way to run a business, or the optimal way to create happiness, no one single solution is best for everyone.

We’re all different.

Tailoring your approach to your uniqueness is the key to faster and longer-lasting results.

This is the second part of a three-part series I’m sharing with you on what I’ve discovered by digging deep into the research produced by the field of positive psychology.

For the first time ever, rigorous academic research is being applied to how we thrive as human beings – in short, how to be happy. Continue reading “One Size Does NOT Fit All – PART 2”

Stop “Looking” For Happiness – PART 1

 

You don’t find happiness, you create it.

I’ve been digging into the work produced by positive psychology researchers lately.

I find it absolutely fascinating.

I read Success Principles by Jack Canfield in my second year of college. Ever since then, I’ve been a voracious reader of self-help books.

The relatively new field of positive psychology takes scientific research standards and applies them to the field of self-help.

In the past, self-proclaimed self-help experts taught strategies they either made up based on their own experiences or based on the experiences of the limited number of people they had worked with.

They didn’t try to isolate what really worked and what didn’t using the same rigor that prescription drugs go through in research trials.

Positive psychology researchers do.

At this point, I’ve read thousands of pages on positive psychology. I’m going to share some of what I consider the most interesting findings…

First, you don’t find happiness, you create it. Continue reading “Stop “Looking” For Happiness – PART 1”

Why you shouldn’t use your phone case. And why HE doesn’t either.

 

Last night I was going through some videos on YouTube, and on the right side I saw a video titled: “Brilliant Reason Why Neil deGrasse Tyson Doesn’t Put Cover on His iPhone.

My first reaction was: “Why on earth would you ask a world-renowned scientist that kind of question in a science show?

I had to watch it.

As it turns out, the reason IS truly brilliant.

And it’s also related to why military cadets do gun twirling.

Go watch the video here, and then come back to this post. I’ll wait.

Have you watched it?

Great.

As you can see, it has NOTHING to do with risk-taking.

But it has EVERYTHING to do with you learning how to control the risk as much as possible.

As Neil points out, iPhone’s are not meant to be dropped. Guns are not meant to be dropped.

And they certainly won’t fall by themselves.

It’s all about you. About your perception of the risk. And your decision to control and minimize that risk.

And the way you learn to control and minimize the risk is by practicing what’s risky.

Day in and day out.

Over and over, until your mind stops seeing that as something risky, and starts seeing it as something known that can be controlled.

There’s one big lie you’ll see all over the internet. And it’s:

Entrepreneurs love risk.

No. We don’t.

Nobody does.

But what separates entrepreneurs – successful entrepreneurs – from the rest is that we’ve learned to take control of that risk. To get to know it. To understand it.

To master it, so it doesn’t become our master.

Learn. Read. Practice. Then practice more.

That means TAKE ACTION.

After some time, people will admire your bravery and your risk-taking nature, but you’ll know what’s really going on.

From that point on, the world becomes your playground.

Until next time,
