Feel Good Friday June 15th, 2018

Happy Friday!

It’s Feel Good Friday and this week I’ve got some great recommendations for you about what I’m watching and a behind the scenes look at some of the tools I use to be a tmy best.

Before we get to this week’s Feel Good Friday recommendations, I’ve got to pause for a moment… it hit me today that we’re already half-way through June and Claim Your Power Live is almost here…

Did you get your CYP Live tix yet?

If you’ve followed along on my Instagram Stories you’ve probably noticed the physical prep-work and functional movements I’ve been doing so that I can have the vitality, energy and flexibility to be on stage for 4 full days at CYP Live.

The amount of physical effort it takes to be on stage all day requires me to get in peak physical performance before CYP Live.

I couldn’t be any more excited and ready for CYP Live. It’s going to be awesome.

Here’s this week’s Feel Good Friday…

1. “Trauma” is misunderstood

I’ve been posting about root cause trauma, trauma work and Trauma Hacking™ over on my Instagram this week and there has been some great discussions happening.

You see, trauma is misunderstood. It’s not just some big bad thing that happened to you when you were younger. A breakup, a divorce, being left alone as a child, being in a state of constant stress/anxiety, a soul-sucking job, a toxic relationship, eating toxic foods, addiction, too much work and many other things create trauma, too.

>This post on Instagram about what Trauma and Trauma Hacking™ really is started quite the conversation. 

It’s worth checking out. I’m so thrilled that so many people are waking up to the idea that it’s about the trauma and healing it.

We’ve all got trauma, it doesn’t have to be scary and it’s this work that leads you to your purpose and to follow through. This post is worth checking out, so are the comments.

If you’re using or know about all the tools and are still stuck, this post will help you break through to understand the true root cause of why.

2. Creating Business Success After Trauma

You can start or grow a business that you love. If you are unclear, if you are feeling like outside forces or life is getting in the way, if you feel scared to take a leap because of the financial stress – know that that is totally normal. We’ve all been there, and I’ve been there, too.

I wanted to highlight this week’s podcast where I share my story of how I went through a professional trauma and addiction to drugs and turned it into purpose and a sucessful business.

This is an excerpt of Claim Your Power Live 2017.

I do you some strategic curse words for humor and to break patterns in the room, that’s my style. If you’re wanting to create financial or business success after trauma or major life change that’s got you stuck, you’re going to love this podcast eposide.

3. Two Awesome Movies To Watch

I watched TWO great movies this week and have to recommend both to you.

It’s a little hard to admit, but the first movie you’re got to see is called “Book Club”. It’s about an older group of girlfriends who have been friends for decades and their love lives have gotten stale. They have been doing a monthly book clubs for decades and one member of the book club shakes things up by recommending and then demanding they read 50 Shades of Grey.

Then – all hell breaks loose. The writing and the story was awesome.

>Click here to watch Book Club.

The second movie is CRAZYWISE. This is an important film. This movie will move you. It speaks volumes about mental health and how it is perceived in different parts of the world. This is a MUST WATCH!

What if a psychological crisis or psychotic break wasn’t a bad thing, what if it was the beginning of a breakthrough or major life change and was actually a good thing?

CRAZYWISE goes into detail about what psychological crisis really is… and it’s worth a watch. You can’t see it in theatres, but you can rent or buy it online…

>Click here to watch CRAZYWISE.

MUST WATCH!

4. Put An End to Conflicting Food Advice & Trust Your Gut

One of the most powerful things you can do to help change your life, to feel better and to get your energy back is make sure you have a healthy gut (also called your microbiome). My new favorite tool is called Viome, you can get $50 off my clicking here.

I’ve lost 10 pounds in two weeks using Viome, and I’ve never felt better. Bloating and a lot of my inflammation is gone. I’ve got more energy… all by changing to eat the exact food I need for my body. I love me some Viome. Everyone’s microbiome is totally unique, so what’ good for me, or your friend or family member may not be good for you.

What is your Viome trying to tell you? Find out right here.

5. Sharing The Inbox Love

Check out this message I received this week about coming to CYP Live in Orlando…

“I just booked my plane ticket for Claim Your Power Live.

I’ve never been so ready in my life. I am the type of person who usually waits

until the new year to start something new. No more! I’m sick of waiting.

I’m not waiting another 6 months. I’m ready NOW!

I’m bringing my a-game to Orlando. You better be ready for me!”

YES! No more waiting, can’t wait to see you soon at CYP LIVE!

OK – that’s it for this week’s Feel Good Friday!

Have a great day 🙂

Remember to get out there, take action and make your Purpose real!

Feel Good Friday May 29th, 2018

Welcome to this week’s Feel Good Friday 🙂

Quick reminder, on Friday’s I share things from this week with you like… what I’ve been reading, to products/apps, what caught my attention or a new tool that can help you get results faster and everything else that I use to get results in my life.

It’s like a sneak peek into my world, so that you can stay informed, out front and always in the know.

1. How do you find the best Functional Medicine Doctor?

A Functional Medicine Doctor is a key part of a healthy, energetic and long life. But, not all Functional Doctor’s are the same. Functional Medicine Docs don’t just treat symptoms, they also treat and focus on the root cause of why you have a dis-ease. There’s different types of Functional Medicine Doctor certifications one can get.

I did extensive research and found that IFM (The Institute for Functional Medicine) has the best certification available. If you’re looking for a Functional Medicine Doc, make sure they are IFM Certified. IFM is out front and on the cutting edge of so many amazing new healing modalities. If you don’t know where to find an IFM Functional Med doc, no worries, they have a “Find a Practitioner” feature on their website.

>Click here to find a Functional Medicine Doctor in your area.

And, if you want to see the proof about how Functional Medicine is getting amazing results?

A new study hows how a woman, who was suffering for 44 years, applied Functional Medicine in her life and had many symptoms either reversed or improved.

>Click here to see the case study on Functional Medicine.

2. Move your body

Part of my daily routine is incorporating movement first thing in the morning. AM Cardio is my jam. And, moving in many different planes, so that I have healthy joints and can speak on stage without injury.

One of the best investments I’ve made in the past year is creating a home gym (for free with saved up Amex Points!).

It saves me time and money by not having to go anywhere and getting my workout done at home.

With Claim Your Power Live coming up i’m focused on getting my body ready for peak physical performance.

I’m loving this new piece of equipment called the Flex Disc. It’s a low-impact, rolling platform that you can workout with. It’s omni-directional. You can do SO many different movements with it.

>Click here to check out the Flex Disc.

Your trainer will be impressed.

3. Anti-Inflammatory

As you may know, chronic llow-gradeinflammation is the root cause of a lot of chronic illness and problems in our bodies. We’ve got to do what we can to reduce inflammation and help our bodies heal. One of the best natural solutions for reducing inflammation is turmeric or curcumin. Problem is, in order to take advantage of it’s anti-inflammatory properties, you need to heat it up and it can take a long time. But, I’ve found a new solution that doesn’t require that and is up to 27x more bioavailable than most other turmeric products.

I’ve been taking it for the past few weeks and never felt better. I’ve lost 10 pounds (of inflammation, not fat), my joints feel great and I even took this stuff instead of an Advil for a headache and it worked! It’s called Theracurmin HP.

It’s a polyphenol. It has significant anti-inflammatory properties. I’m loving it. (Note: please consult a doctor before starting a new supplement protocol.)

One of the most powerful things you can do to help change your life, to feel better and to get your energy back is make sure you have a healthy gut (also called your microbiome). My new favorite tool is called Viome, you can get $50 off my clicking here.

5. Biohacking Your Nervous System

This week on the Power & Purpose podcast I featured a live talk I did at the Bulletproof Conference in 2017. I talk about the real reason why we biohack, why we set goals and most importantly why unhealed emotional trauma gets in the way of meditation, yoga, prayer, biohacking…essentially any way you are trying to improve yourself.

7. Sharing The Inbox Love

I wanted to share this heartwarming message I received this week in my inbox…

“Mastin…I wanted to thank you for your message.

I’m stuck at my job. It pays ok. I’m one of about 250 other employees. It’s not what my heart desires though. I’ve felt a nudge for years that I should go all-in on my own business.

What you said about 6 months being too long to do something really struck a chord with me. You’re right. I always make these plans and set goals and then when the time comes I forget about it or I find some excuse on why I should stay where I’m at.

I’m done. No more 6 month plan to start my own business. No more 3 month plan. I’m starting now. And that looks like me setting aside time everyday, to create my exit strategy now.

I’ve already took the first step and bought the domain name i’m going to use. I’m taking action now.

No more feeling stuck. Time to stop the doubt. It’s time to move forward.

Thank you.”

AWESOME SHARE! Proud of you my friend!

OK – that’s it for this week’s Feel Good Friday!

Have a great Friday 🙂

How to honor our fallen heroes

Today is Memorial Day in the US – it’s a day that we remember our fallen heroes.

This day isn’t just about a day off work or a BBQ with friends. This day is about much more.

This day is very special for me because my father fought in Vietnam and was a medic. He was there at such a young age – almost a decade younger than I am now.

To see war at such a young age, so up close and personal is something I’ve never gone through. But I have tremendous passion compassion for anyone who has served our country.

I’ve also had the privilege to work with members of the US Armed Forces who have come home and come to my events or worked with me to handle the aftermath of their experience.

The solution isn’t an easy one, but what I can tell you is that I think a lot more can be done for the brave men and women who put their lives on the line for our freedom. Because I’ve worked up close and personal with veterans, I’m starting to think about how we can help them integrate back into civilians lives – not just to get by, but to thrive and be truly fulfilled. I think we owe that to them.

As I thought about what to write for Memorial Day, I can’t help but think about being a hero. I mean, that’s what the men and women who put their lives on the line for our country are – they are heroes.

We may not know all their names. We may not know all their stories. But nonetheless each and every one of them are heroes.

What is a hero?

I think this is perhaps the best definition I’ve heard – it comes from philosopher, professor and mythologist Joseph Campbell (who wrote the book “Hero with a Thousand Faces” – so he should know a thing or two about heroes).

Joseph Campbell said:

A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.

I think this is so true and something that guides my life each day. I remember reading this quote early in my sobriety. And it was a wake up call for me to make my life about something more than just myself.

Hearing this quote and trying to embody it meant I had to change everything. Tony Robbins says that life opens up when we trade the need for significance for the need to serve and contribute.

This is truly a heroic transformation.
And I see so many clients making this shift. From just a career about certainty and importance to a vocation about serving others.

And I think us; each of us, making this shift is vital to not only our own happiness and fulfillment, but really the best way to honor those that gave their lives so that we can have a shot at freedom.

America was founded on freedom. Many have died for freedom. Let’s not be scared of our freedom.

You are free to make new choices. To leave unhealthy relationships. To set new standards. To decide to take your career into your own hands. We are free to forgive. To begin anew today.

Let’s not be scared of this freedom. Let’s celebrate it. And most importantly let’s act on it. How many have given the ultimate sacrifice that that we could?

In the comments below let me know how you are going to celebrate your freedom.

Today, let’s thank all our fallen heroes for what they’ve given so that we could be free.

And Dad, I’m happy you made it through. Your strength inspires me every day.

Remember to get out there, take action and make it real!

Procrastination: This Is How To Turn The Tables And Finish

There’s no better feeling than a project that’s complete. It’s like saying “Take that procrastination!”

There’s that sense of self-respect.

That sense of accomplishment.

That earned sense of self-respect and self-esteem.

Whatever you want to achieve in your life – there’s one thing that’s gotta happen.

You’ve got to finish it.

One imperfectly finished project is better than 100 half done.

If you don’t learn how to finish – you’ll never live your highest potential.

If you don’t set your sights to finish, then you erode your self-esteem and self-trust.

Not finishing increases stress and is a major cause of overwhelm.

Yesterday I shared with you how to overcome being paralyzed and ignite your purpose. That blog will get you started if you don’t know how to go from unstuck to momentum FAST.

Today I’m going to share with you how to go from momentum to sustained momentum to finished.

It’s a simple concept I’m going to share with you. It is elegant, and it is powerful. But don’t think it’s easy. Simple and easy are not the same thing.

There are just four decisions you need to make to finish.

These are strategic and valuable decisions that will powerfully move you forward.

So make them, take them to heart and watch the awesomeness that follows.

Four Decisions That Turn The Tables On Procrastination:

1. Decide what your ideal outcome is (positively, clearly and in present tense).

2. Decide to take CIA (Courageous Imperfect Action) until you achieve your outcome. BTW – yesterday was the best time to start, so you’ll have to settle for now!

3. Decide to pay attention to the feedback you are getting without taking it personally.

4. Decide to analyze the feedback you are getting and consistently change your approach and be flexible until you produce your ideal outcome (or something better).

Committing to these decisions will change the game.

Make four decisions? Simple.
Living them? That’s where the rubber meets the road.

When you find a cause that’s greater than you, it makes it easier to commit.

When you link positive outcome and curiosity with these decisions, it brings about rapid change.

Deep down you know that you are a finisher. Deep down you know there is more for you to bring forward into the world. Deep down you know that it’s time to bring your decisions into the present moment. Deep down you know that perfectionism and/or procrastination are killing your dreams.

Deep down you know that you can change everything…

Right now.

It’s time to turn the tables on procrastination and become a finisher.

In the comments below, commit to making these decisions for yourself today. Share why. Tell me how this feels. And tell me what outcome you are committed to (clearly and in the positive/present tense).

When you comment below, you take the first step to making the invisible… visible.

Let’s take that step together today. Right now.

Remember to get out there, take action and make it real!
