HAPPINESS – How It Happens Clinically


John and Kelly describe how happiness works for them and what creates their happiness. They believe the mind thrives on order and everything that comes in your consciousness is evaluated relative to your goals. If you aren’t obtaining your goals or things are obstructing your goals, you will be unhappy. To change from being unhappy to happy, you have to re-establish order in your mind.

About the Hosts:

John Mitchell

John’s story is pretty amazing. After spending 20 years as an entrepreneur, John was 50 years old but wasn’t as successful as he thought he should be. To rectify that, he decided to find the “top book in the world” on SUCCESS and apply that book literally Word for Word to his life. That Book is Think & Grow Rich. The book says there’s a SECRET for success, but the author only gives you half the secret. John figured out the full secret and a 12 minute a day technique to apply it.

When John applied his 12 minute a day technique to his life, he saw his yearly income go to over $5 million a year, after 20 years of $200k – 300k per year. The 25 times increase happened because John LEVERAGED himself by applying science to his life.

His daily technique works because it focuses you ONLY on what moves the needle, triples your discipline, and consistently generates new business ideas every week. This happens because of 3 key aspects of the leveraging process.

John’s technique was profiled on the cover of Time Magazine. He teaches it at the University of Texas’ McCombs School of Business, which is one the TOP 5 business schools in the country. He is also the “mental coach” for the head athletic coaches at the University of Texas as well.

Kelly Hatfield:

How do driven entrepreneurs like you and me? Who want to play the game of life at our full potential? actually do that? So that we met seven figures a year and experience the overall exceptional life? It's all about leveraging our most valuable asset, our brain. But how do we train our brain to actually rewire our autopilot so that all of the right actions and focus happens automatically without thinking, as we create the exceptional life in business health, and our significant other relationships? These are the questions and this is the podcast that answers them. This is where your net seven figures at your freedom begins. Welcome. I'm Kelly Hatfield. And I'm John Michell. And today we are going to talk about the idea of creating happiness. And so John, why don't you kick us off?

John Mitchell:

Okay, I'd be glad to. So here's how happiness works, the mind thrives on order. So think about this mind thrives on order. And everything that comes into your consciousness is evaluated relative to your goals. So things that support your goals make you happy, things that go contrary to your goals make you unhappy. And, and I gave you an example of this, let's, let's say that one of your goals is financial security. And, and let's say, you go into, to work one day, and the boss calls you up and says, Hey, let me visit with you. You, you go and visit with, you know, this may not be good, but you go and see the boss. And he says, Well, we're gonna let you go, this is just not working out. Well, as you get that information, you in that moment are unhappy, because that new information has created this order in the mind. Well, you're, you're bummed out, you are unhappy. And so you drive home, you pack up your stuff, and, and, and you're driving home, and and you're you're still unhappy, or you're you go to dinner, you're unhappy, and, and you're just really in a lousy mood. And this maybe goes on for a couple of days, but maybe a couple of days later, you wake up and go well, like it or not, I gotta get a new job. And so how am I going to do that? So you sit down at your kitchen table, and you scratch out? Well, here's the plan for getting the new jobs. Here's the six things I got to do. And and well guess what? You are now creating order in the mind. And again, the mind thrives on order. And that unhappiness now is replaced with order, and you're back to a relatively happy state. But I think that that's a good example of how the mind thrives on order. You want to share any thoughts you have on that? Yeah,

Kelly Hatfield:

I mean, I think to just simplifying this even further, I want you to think about a time right now, where you felt overwhelmed, you know, where it's been, you know, where you've been in that state of overwhelm. And let's say you've sat down and you just wrote a to do list even, you know, are organized your thoughts and got some of what's in your head out onto paper, you know, that usually immediately begins to alleviate stress, because you've started to organize your thoughts, again, the mind thriving on order, breaking it down even more simply, when your desk or your environment looks like a bomb went off in there, you know, and I didn't know what I mean. Like you're, you're, you're experiencing that environment that you're in is creating a disorder in the mind, you know, and then think about anytime you organize something in your house, or anytime you clean up your desk, you know, and get things set righted or set up for the next day. How you immediately feel like oh, that is that is exactly you know, what you're talking about? inaction, you know, working in action in the mind thriving on order and disorder causing chaos in your mind.

John Mitchell:

Right. Well, you know, I tell you, I think what all of us want more than anything else is control over our life. You know, which which is another way of saying order, I think right? Absolutely. And and I see that in like with our methodology, when you're creating this immense clarity about yourself, and each area of your Life to a level beyond what you've experienced before, it creates this immense sense of control. And that control makes you happy. I mean, I see today, you know, and I think you're probably the same way, you know, when when money was the big thing. You know, that was, that was one thing and sort of attaining that that goal of financial security was, was really pleasing and made us happy. But the longer term aspect of this methodology is that it gives you control over your life. And and you play the game of life at 100% of your capability rather than 20%. And boy, that makes you happy at the end of the day, I think, you know, when we all clock out for the last time, we weren't just want to know that we played the game of life at our, our full potential. And if you feel that way, you're going to feel happy. You by that?

Kelly Hatfield:up, right, but it is April of:John Mitchell:

Absolutely. You know, I love that story, because it's the flip side of happiness. So you know, it's unhappiness caused by an external factor, and that was completely out of your control. And so I think it's a great example but as we wrap it up today, you know, the takeaway is that if you're unhappy, it's because there's disorder in the mind. And all you have to do is reinstate order in the mind however you might do that, but I've used that simple philosophy for many, many years and it is powerfully simple and effective.
