Understand the Real Deal on Breaking Commitments

promiseVery few things in life are black or white. It might even be said that nothing is an absolute. Or nothing is absolute in all cases. Except maybe the universal laws like gravity. 

This Happiness Class Session is about looking at not only the ethical questions about whether or not it is ok to change your mind, or break a promise, but you will also hear what some of the latest psychology research has to say on the matter.

Plus Carl reminds us of the fact he was in the army for 14 years, with some pretty bizarre analogies. Fortunately Damo saved him.

So tune in to hear Damo and Carl dissect this very touchy subject to help you better decide how to move forward or backward in your life.





That Sugar Film – Interview with Damon Gameau

damoToday Damo and I were so lucky and so are you.

We had the privilege to interview a great Australian actor and acclaimed filmmaker – Damon Gameau – to talk about his upcoming documentary ‘That Sugar Film’. A super-size me type film where he consumes 40 teaspoons of sugar a day, for 60-days (which is not that much higher than teenagers generally consume worldwide). I can tell you know, this is a film you don’t want to miss; because he reveals some startling facts in this interview, as well as sharing his extremely broad knowledge of health and the impact of sugar on the body, moods and mind.

Damon is also a lot of fun and somehow we got onto the Tantra Retreat that Damo and Damon met at in Bali where a little bromance started. Abd it did get a bit confusing for Carl with the Damo’s & Damon’s. This is one of our favourite interviews to date. One because of the topic. Two because of the depth of insight Damon shares and thirdly because he is a pretty funny dude as well. Get ready to be informed and entertained. Have an awesome day. Cheers Damo & Carl PS: Here is Damon’s website here.

Damo them follows his strategies up with a powerful energy shifting session; that if you follow, will have you feeling INCREDIBLE by the end.

Unravelling The Power of Now with Damo & Carl

nowSo we have all heard the term before ‘The Power of Now’ or ‘Living in the Now’. But what the heck does that actually mean? And what are the benefits for us in our modern lifestyles? And most importantly; if it is so great for us, how the begeezus do we actually turn on this ‘now’ thing?

Those questions and more are playfully and cleverly answered by Damo and Carl in another great installment of The Happiness Class. They get right into the specifics of what it means, the benefits you will experience physically and emotionally, and also some SPECIFIC strategies you can apply TODAY.

Carl also – somehow – gets on to the subject of turtles – which totally throws Damo.

Another well delivered and fun look at a deeply meaningful topic by the boys from The Happiness Class. For more details on the actual live version of The Happiness Class check out the link:

Have an awesome day.

2 Awesomely Effective and Simple Strategies on Managing Your Emotions

happy guyHave you ever stopped to consider the idea that emotions are everything? That it is what we feel, that matters most. It is not the new shiny red Porsche that is the big deal it is the FEELINGS that we experience as a result of owning or driving in or seeing that car. What makes us move? What makes us do anything? It is emotions. Since they are so important, I want to share with you a couple of awesomely effective but simple strategies.

Last week I attended a 5-Day course on the LifeLine Technique, presented by the creator of the system – Dr Darren Weissman. To say that the course was insightful would be selling it short. I prefer to use the term – mind popping. It was simply amazing and I recommend it to anyone else – regardless if it is for you personally or to use as a professional tool with clients. It is superb!

The big theme of the training and the stuff that we most need to understand for joy, success, happiness and fulfillment in life is EMOTIONS. So in this podcast I will share with you just 2 tools you can use immediately to better manage and utilise the power of your emotions.
