BACON BITS with Master Happiness

By Master Happiness
Happiness is a muscle that must be exercised! You have to keep working at it in order to become and stay Happy. With practice,it gets easier and easier every day. Remember, you are up against Anger, Fear, and Sadness. Falling into and getting trapped in these emotions is easy. Your Happiness is outnumbered 3 to 1!

The Path to Happiness isn't easy, but the Destination is well worth the Journey! It is a road paved with optimism, gratitude, humility, and a few more distinctions that I'd like to share with you.

What SCARES You? BACON is here to help!
From spiders and clowns to those mysterious sounds. From things in the dark to black cats and sharks. From heights and the dentist, our fears are relentless. Join us as we discuss “What SCARES YOU!” and how BACON can help. B – Breathing relaxes us and gives us time to think. A – Anxiety teaches us what NOT to do again. C – Comedy lightens the situation. O – Outsmart yourself, is it really that scary? N – Note your courage, it’ll outnumber the fear. Things that go "THUMP" in the middle of the night, the odd shadows, or those sudden chills. Our minds play tricks on us. We see things, we hear things, and sometimes we even feel things that aren't necessarily there. Everyone likes a little mystery, suspense, and a scare here and there. Or maybe we don't. www.MasterHappiness.com/live #SalesCoach #PublicSpeaking #Keynote #Career #Relationships #MasterHappiness #Jalove #Bacon #WRLR #BaconBits #MartyJalove #WhatsYourBACON #Fear #Courage

Boost Creativity with BACON!
Can Creativity be taught? Whether building, writing, designing, sculpting, painting, playing music, or almost any activity, creativity plays an important role. I believe that we are all creative in our own way. And we should all be encouraged to explore creativity and pushed into practicing it. “BACON BITS” is all about helping you find your paths of Happiness! Creativity can reduce stress, improve mental health, boost your immune system, bring you happiness, and so much more. Join us as we discuss the benefits of boosting creativity and how to do it! B - Build it and see if what you were dreaming of can become a reality. A - Act it out, explain it, sing it! Never let a good idea die silently. C - Change it up! If you are feeling in a slump, add a twist to your normal habits and feel those creative juices start to stir. O - Others have Ideas too! Look at what’s out there that does and doesn’t connect. How many inventions work because someone discovered the wheel? N - Never stop revising, revisiting, and reengineering! There is always a way to make a better mousetrap. Producing something that has never existed in that particular form before builds self-esteem, puts a smile on your face, and can offer an overall rush. This is the essence and necessity of creativity. Let’s Boost Creativity with BACON, together. www.MasterHappiness.com/live #SalesCoach #PublicSpeaking #Keynote #Career #Relationships #MasterHappiness #Jalove #Bacon #WRLR #BaconBits #WhatsYourBacon #MartyJalove

Toxic Positivity • BACON versus PESTO!
“BACON BITS” is all about helping you find your paths of Happiness! We cannot be Happy, Positive, and Perky all the time. Pretending to be can cause more harm than good. Life is a rollercoaster of emotions. Feeling the bad ones are inevitable. Join us as we discuss the yuckiness of PESTO and how BACON can keep us on the paths to Master Happiness. The Problem P - Perspective over Validation, “it could be worse” instead of, “that sounds awful.” E - Experiencing Guilt for the way you feel. S - Shaming others for expressing their feelings. T - Telling yourself and others to “Just walk it off!” O - Oppose or masking your true feelings. The Solution B - Balance the good with the bad. A - Acknowledge and validate your feelings and those of others. C - Confide in someone. O - Offer empathy. N - Normalize ALL your feelings. www.MasterHappiness.com #SalesCoach #PublicSpeaking #Keynote #Career #Relationships #MasterHappiness #Jalove #Bacon #WRLR #BaconBits #WhatsYourBacon #MartyJalove #ToxicPositivity #Pesto

How to work with someone you don't like (with BACON)
“BACON BITS” is all about helping you find your paths of Happiness! With almost 8 billion people in the world, we’re not going to get along with all of them. But it’s still worth a try! B - BOUNDARIES AND BODY LANGUAGE – Don’t put up with a negative attitude or unfair treatment. Communicate and establish boundaries. Keep it professional. Watch your body language so as not to antagonize the situation. A - AVOID THEM WHEN POSSIBLE– Capitalize on opportunities to be away from them. Breaks, lunch, projects with other employees. Remind yourself that the time that you interact with them is limited. C - CONTROL THE CONNECTION – Remember, you cannot control their actions or emotions. You can only control your actions or emotions. Don’t allow them to ruin your day and definitely don’t take that feeling home with you. O - OFFER A SMILE – Try to be civil. You don’t have to be best friends; you don’t even have to be friend-friends. Leave it at acquaintances for now. But leave the door open, a friendship may blossom once a connection is made. N - NOW GET ON WITH YOUR WORK – Remember the reason that you are there. It’s not to make lifelong friends (that’s a bonus). If your attempt to be friends fails, make it clear that you are there to do a job and do it. You probably already have friends at home. It's called work for a reason, if it was all fun and games, it would be called, "going to play!" Stick with it, if you tried everything and still don't get along you can sleep well knowing that you ut in the effort. www.MasterHappiness.com #SalesCoach #PublicSpeaking #Keynote #Career #Relationships #MasterHappiness #Jalove #Bacon #WRLR #BaconBits #WhatsYourBacon #MartyJalove

The BACON of HUMOR!
“BACON BITS” is all about helping you find your paths of Happiness! "A day without laughter is a day wasted" - Charlie Chaplin B - BOOST YOUR HEALTH!– “Laugher is the Best Medicine” is more than just a saying. When you laugh, your body releases the feel-good chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins improve your mood and also help dull pain. Studies have shown that laughter can reduce stress, boost the immune system, increase blood flow, and so much more. That’s nothing to laugh at. A - ARISTOTLE’S SUPERIORITY THEORY!– Originally, it was believed that humor was the feeling we felt when we looked down upon others or ourselves (Superiority Theory). In the 18th Century two new theories on humor were introduced. The Relief Theory points out the humor is also found in the resolution of tension. And the Incongruity Theory shows us how we laugh at things that break patterns. These guys are really serious about their humor. C - CREATE CHARACTERS!– One of the easiest ways to make anything a little bit funnier is to change your voice, switch your stance, or do your best impersonation of anyone you’re not. Test it out yourself; just try reading this text like a Pirate, ya scurvy dog! O - OBSERVATIONAL COMEDY!– Did you ever notice that when you talk about something we can all relate to and give it a surprising twist…people laugh? “Comedy has to be based on truth. You take the truth, and you put a little curlicue at the end.” Sid Caesar N - NOT GETTING THE JOKE!– Knowing your audience puts the punch in your line, the giggle in your gag, and the jolly in your joke. Telling a joke that no one gets not only tenses the comedian but makes the whole audience feel uncomfortable. That can lead to stress and reverses everything that we learned in letter “B!" Practice your puns, study your stand-up, ready your riddles, and never miss a chance to smile, laugh, giggle or grin! www.MasterHappiness.com #SalesCoach #PublicSpeaking #Keynote #Career #Relationships #MasterHappiness #Jalove #Bacon #WRLR #BaconBits #WhatsYourBacon #MartyJalove

The BACON of Humility!
“BACON BITS” is all about helping you find your paths of Happiness! One of the most rewarding paths to Master Happiness is called Humility. Don’t think less OF yourself, think less ABOUT yourself! I have spewed gossip fueled by jealousy but never found any real happiness from pointing out the misfortune of others. Instead, it always made me feel like others were talking about me. On the flipside, I have found incredible peace, joy, and happiness in cheering others on, allowing them to be the hero of the day, and trying not to compare and judge. Help others find this path and enjoy watching them find joy in humility. B - BE A GREAT LISTENER A - ASK FOR HELP! C - CHECK YOURSELF! O - OTHERS ARE ALLOWED TO SUCCEED! N - NOSY AIN’T NICE! Don’t think less OF yourself, think less ABOUT yourself! www.MasterHappiness.com #SalesCoach #PublicSpeaking #Keynote #Career #Relationships #MasterHappiness #Jalove #Bacon #WRLR #BaconBits #WhatsYourBacon #MartyJalove

First off, if you are being bullied, harassed, or hurt and can’t find help, go to www.stopbullying.gov Bullying can happen on the playground, at the office, or in the home. Join Tiffany and me as we discuss some of the ways to use B.A.C.O.N. to prevent and stop bullying. B - BE SURE you’re being bullied - Are they actually bullying you or have you misunderstood? A - ANTICIPATE - Avoid or accept and advertise. Try to avoid the situation if you can. If you can't, don't be embarrassed, tell others. Find allies and advice. C - CONFRONT the Bully with confidence. Don't let it continue. Communication is key. Find the WHY and fight emotion with logic. O - OFFER HUMOR - "Yes, and" Take the wind out of their sails. Agree and enhance. Accept and exaggerate. Move with the punches an take away their power. N - NEGOTIATE WITH NICENESS! Never get emotional, that's when the Bully wins! Take your time to think and respond. Never let them see you sweat.

Sometimes when a bully doesn't receive the attention or reaction that they want , the bullying seems to fade away.
