The Happiness Class with Carl Massy
Learn about the biggest do's and don'ts when it comes to increasing your Happiness, Health, Vitality and Success
The Power of Habit
April 10, 2015 09:10 PM PDT
We all know about good habits and bad habits and how they can take us forward or backwards, but knowing is not enough. The real question is "how can I create a powerful habit?"
So that is the topic of this weeks Happiness Class. A look at what it means to create habits and how best is it to do so. Inspired by a bunch of previous work, plus recently reading a book called 'Superhuman by Habit'.
Also having recently returned from 2 weeks back in Australia (since I now live in Bali), I was reminded of the value of catching up with friends that you haven't seen or spoken with in a long time. It feels SO GOOD to do it. I caught up with people I had not seen in 20+ years and it was great. So I challenge you to do a bit of that yourself. It will make you and keep you Happy for ages.
My apologies for 2 weeks of no Happiness Classes while I was back in Australia, bit now I AM BACK. (Actually Schwarzenegger was recently in Oz )
Have a fantastic day and please ask me any questions you have, on my Facebook Page or at http://carlmassy.com.
My Insane Breakthrough from A 28 year Old Limiting Belief
March 18, 2015 03:10 AM PDT
In this Happiness Class I will tell you about a shameful and humiliating event that happened to me 28 years ago, that has affected me in subtle ways ever since. Not only that - but what limiting belief I associated with the event that has been a thorn in my side every since.
I will also share with you how I dealt with that event (with a series of techniques) that made me feel as if the world bent itself around me. It is like a fear I have carried for years, and have had to work hard on, has just disappeared. I feel like a new me.
The event I share happened to me in the first year I was in the Army at Australian Defence Force Academy. It might come as a bit of a shock to all the guys I know from my service days to hear about the impact this event had on me, as I always maintained a brave face. Plus I believe I have been quite successful, regardless.
So if you want to hear Carl Massy as his most open and most vulnerable self, then you are going to want to hear this.
I will also be sharing with you the book I read, and the process I used to make such a life-changing shift.
The book was 'Code to Joy' by Dr Pratt, Dr Lambrou & Dr Mann.
I hope you enjoy seeing me bare my soul.
Have an awesome day
Interview with Energy Healer and Acupuncturist Grace Kim
March 08, 2015 11:46 PM PDT
I had a lot of fun with Grace Kim, as she took us for a little journey down the rabbit hole. Often I am very practical and pragmatic in my strategies, so it was great to loosen the bonds a little bit and delve into the realm where less 'scientific' evidence is present - but 1000's of years of practice might say otherwise.
Here is Grace Kim's BIO:
Grace is from Toronto (Canada) and she started meditation and martial arts at the age of four. She learned qi gong and physical energy practice through martial arts, later to discover the healing applications of energy as an acupuncturist and Thetahealer®. Grace heals people with acupuncture and energy healing through Thetahealing techniques either fact-to-face or distantly. She also teaches self-healing, qi gong and yoga to all levels at studios and retreats. Plus she also certifies Thetahealers®.
I think you will find this podcast a lot of fun and also very informative. I bring up the point that we are much less than 1% physical matter, so it just makes sense that energy healing ought to be a part of the healing process.
Anyway, I will let you enjoy it for yourself.
Have a great day.

Relationship Coaching: Dealing with Separation
February 24, 2015 11:58 PM PST
Talking about relationships can be a challenge when you are talking about the good stuff. Even harder when you are talking about when relationships come to an end, or the love dries up.
In the last few weeks (and over the last few years) I have worked with a number of individuals and couples that are having relationship challenges, or are trying to work their way out of one, and want to get out the other side in one piece, plus in a much better space.
The possibility is always there to learn and grow, but it does take some work and often it is bumpy ride to get there.
So in today''s Happiness Class, which is not the happiest subject, I talk about my experience with coaching people through separation and prospering on the other side of it.
If you have any questions about it, or any other topic, I am always really grateful to hear from you. Just head over to http://carlmassy.com to connect with me via and email of via the Facebook Link.
Have a great day and know that none of us are alone, or need to figure things out on our own. Ask for help if you need it. You might be surprised by how many people want to help.
Have a good one.
PS: Please tell other people to check out The Happiness Class if they are after tips, tools and strategies to create more happiness, health and success in their lives.
Overwhelm: A Specific Strategy for Overcoming It
February 13, 2015 07:14 PM PST
When was the last time you felt overwhelmed? Chances are it was not that long ago - and it might even be you are experiencing a bit of overwhelm right now. And when overwhelm is left unchecked, it can often manifest into something a lot more detrimental.
So in this session of The Happiness Class, I go into a very practical process and strategy on how to deal with overwhelm. I share a process that I use with my Coaching clients when they are feeling overwhelmed. And if you are in overwhelm right now, I can assure you that after following the steps I outline that you will be in a whole new place of well-being.
As always, if you have any questions for me, or want me to address a particular topic or a specific challenge you might be faced with, then head over to my website (http://carlmassy.com) or Facebook Page via the website. I would love to help out any way I can.
I appreciate your support and feel free to direct any friends and family to the Happiness Class where they can get weekly coaching tips, techniques and insights, to better serve their lives and attainment of that 'next level' on their journey to their best self.
Have an awesome day!
Change Your Personality. Change Your RESULTS.
February 06, 2015 08:03 PM PST
I was recently asked in a seminar if our personalities are fixed. It was as a result of telling everyone that if we wanted to radically change our results from a health perspective we not only needed to change our lifestyles, but we needed to change our 'personalities'.
So the question was asked: "Can we change our personalities?"
Well I am here to tell you that we can. This podcast is about what we need to do to change our personalities and I use the example of how someone who has a 'shy personality' can become someone that has a 'confident personality'.
If we are a different person than of course we will get different results. But how do we take theory into practice? Well you will have to listen to find out how. Just know for now that it is definitely possible.
As always, feel free to ask me questions, which I will answer directly. Just head over to my website http://carlmassy.com and jump on my Facebook page, or contact me directly. Plus while you are at it, sign up for my weekly Happiness Tips Newsletter.
Have an awesome day and journey on the way to your best self.
Getting from Loneliness to Deep Connection in 30 Seconds
January 26, 2015 07:33 PM PST
Are we more or less connected these days? That is a very valid and pertinent question to be asking these days. If the technology of Facebook and Twitter and WhatsApp, etc. has increased the level of connection we have with people, do we feel more 'connected'?
This the question I address in this Happiness Class and I also consider the idea of loneliness - which I consider through my observation to be quite prevalent in this apparently very connected wotld.
I will share with you a remarkably simple technique I have been using of late to increase the level of connection I feel in the moment and which tends to have a lingering impact.
What to know what it is?
Then hit the 'GO' button on this Podcast and do yourself a favour.
Have a good one.
How Complacency is a Silent Killer
January 21, 2015 08:14 PM PST
As 2014 ended and 2015 started, I experienced my own feelings of complacency for various reasons. I found it hard to break the inertia and to create momentum, so I could achieve the big goals I had set for 2015.
It also made me want to understand this idea of complacency. Wjat are its drivers. What are the consequences? What is the price you pay? And HOW do you deal with it.
How do you break that inertia and create some real, sustainable momentum?
All will be revealed in this Happiness Class.
Have a good one (and a great 2015)!!
How Your THOUGHTS Are Holding You Back - and What To Do
January 06, 2015 12:39 AM PST
This comes up time and time again with my clients. And it seriously holds them back - plus causes an avalanche of negative feelings.
Have you ever considered the difference between your thoughts and the act of 'thinking'? I am here to tell you that one is likely taking you backwards, while the other is opening the door to an amazing experience for you.
In this Happiness Class, I look at the distinction between thoughts and their impact on us, and what the better alternative is - thinking (which most people don't stop to do). Might sound simple, but most people miss the mark - a LOT.
I hope you learn this simple lesson, so you can make 2015 your best year ever.
Given that Happiness is the ultimate currency in life, it is my belief that leaving happiness to chance is not the way to live an engaged and fulfilling life. That is why I will be sharing with you the greatest insights into how to increase your happiness, health, vitality and success. I will also be regularly interviewing some of the shakers and movers in the wellness industry. The Happiness Class is fun, insightful, inspiring and with specific actions you can take today.
To sum up my life in a few lines; I was an ex-Army Major, an Olympic Games consultant and then a handful of years ago I jumped out of the mainstream and into my passion - helping people to experience more joy in their lives. So now I am an author of The Guidebook to Happiness, a retreat and workshop leader, and an NLP Life Coach and Therapist. I believe that none of us are tapping into our full potential (myself included) YET, so I am all about helping with a bunch of useful tools, tips, and strategies to bring out our best.
