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.

In his programs, he really is creating an environment where people step into a field of possibility, to change their lives.

So here is Trav’s official bio:

Travis (Trav) Bell is passionate about motivating people to help them reach their true potential. Trav has always been fascinated with the difference that makes the difference in peoples lives and loves seeing people achieve things in their life that they never thought possible.
For as long as he can remember he’s had a Bucket List & it has been his life’s mission to continually add to it & cross things off it.
As well as being ‘The Bucket List Guy’, Trav has been self-employed for over 17 years. He is the Founder of the New Level Personal Training Studios Group, a Professional Speaker, Life Strategist & Business Coach. He is also a Master Practitioner of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), Advanced Subconsious Reprogramming & Hypnosis & is an Internationally Recognized Performance Consultant.
