Oooh. There are so many. We’ll give you three quickie mistakes:

1. Don’t hire a speaker simply to fill up a space in your meeting or convention. Hire a speaker to help you accomplish a specific goal; to create a specific behavior change; to deliver a specific message.

Not sure how best to use Brad? No sweat…just ask us and we’ll give you some ideas how to not just hire a motivational speaker, but to accomplish a goal. We’ll help you make your meeting a mad success.

2. Make sure your speaker is able to customize his program to your people, your group, your needs and your goals. You need somebody relevant to your audience. And without some customization that’s pretty much impossible.

Brad customizes his programs. Your people will experience something that can’t be repeated. (Yes…. it’s an experience. It’s not a speech.)

Selected Posts from Brad’s Past

We found a few posts, videos and stories from Brad’s past, and thought it would be fun to re-publish them here.  So pour yourself a cup of coffee, put on some classic rock, and check out this classic blog post from a decade (ish) ago.

We talked about this before: you need to check the testimonials and references. But in addition, we’re convinced that you need to chat with your potential motivational speaker. On the phone. No secretaries. No speakers bureaus. You need to talk direct. Does he seem pleasant? Does he seem to understand your needs? Is he willing to shape his program around your needs, desired outcomes and goals? Does he feel more like a partner or more like a contractor?

Hanging out with people makes you better is important.  We all know this basic fact, but the question for all of us is, “What are we doing to nourish the current people in our lives that improve us, and how do we meet new friends that make us better?”

The answer can vary but the bottom line is basic:  you better be strategic about keeping and earning new friends.

The concept  of “Strategic Friendships” was made clear to me by my dad on his 80th Birthday.  It turns out my dad is a hipster with a ton of cool friends.  A ton.  And he’s 80!

At his birthday party — which featured a ton of booze, friends, and food — but not a single motivational speaker motivational speaker — my big brother and big sister and I were standing around looking at his huge collection of friends and we all admitted that were totally impressed not only at the number of his pals, but the quality of his friends.  These weren’t just people accepting free food;  they were pals.

Dad’s secret is that he’s been really strategic.  For the past 15 years, he’s had standing lunch groups.  On the first Monday of the month he meets with friends from his college, the 2nd Monday it’s pals he used to climb mountains with, then the 3rd Monday it’s a bunch of friends who just like each other. They call it Discussion Club.

The details aren’t important;  what is important is the lesson.  He meets regularly with people.  He’s invests his time because it’s a strategy.  It’s on purpose.  It’s a thing!

What does that mean for us?  It means we should do something today to nourish old friends, and cultivate new friends.  We should know it’s going to take a while.  That means that it takes time;  it takes years.  We saw the results at my dad’s birthday party one and a half decades after he started.  It takes patience.

So pick up the phone right now.  Send a text right now.  Go to lunch.  It’s worth it, and the long term pay off in your own happiness will amaze you — and your grown children.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Looking for a technique to increase your well-be ing and happiness?  Of course you are.  We all are.

And the happy Chewbacca video that is tearing up the internet reminded me of a technique to easily and quickly improve your over all well-being:  laugh before you sleep.

(In case you have been living in a cave,  the  happy woman from Texas has a really fun video which I promise will make you laugh.)

What are the details?  Simple.  Easy Peasy.  Make sure that the LAST thing you do before sleep is to watch or read something that makes you laugh.

  • Laughing before sleep makes you forget all of the crap going through your mind.
  • That makes you sleep better.

In turn, you wake up better, healthier and happier.  It’s so basic, and so easy, it seems to be too good to be true.  But it isn’t.  It works.

Want to be happier at work?  At home?  In general?  Put yourself in the right frame of mind for sleep by laughing before you lose consciousness.

But if you don’t like that method, try reading a few pages of a comic book.  I love the comic ZITS, which reminds me of my teenage kids.  It makes me laugh.  My wife and I both love the book Awkward Family motivational-keynote-necktiePhotos, which makes us both howl.

Don’t spend too much time… Maybe just three minutes.  But if you laugh before sleep, you’ll benefit.

I promise you!

As a motivational speaker I speak before hundreds or thousands Employee Engagement Statistics-resized-600of people every month. I love my job and feel very lucky to be part of that much laughter.

One of the best side effects of my job is that it is nearly impossible to tell other people to lighten up, be happy, and use levity and humor as a tool, and not have some of that spin back to me. For example, can you imagine telling thousands of people to lighten up and take themselves less seriously, and then yelling at the flight attendant? Neither can I, so I never do, and that’s part of what I love about my job.  I’m a professional Nice Guy!

Every now and then, I get a very special gift. I receive a letter from somebody in my audience. I suspect it is like the elementary school teacher who wonders if he or she makes any difference at all, and then some lanky 16 year old kid comes back to say thanks for inspiring him to read or to investigate fossils, or some other important nugget.

The elementary school teacher probably just melts in her shoes.  What a gift!  A simple thank you.

Such was the case when I got this amazing letter from someone who was part of a company I worked for in Texas.  This company was so unusual, sofunny motivational speakers purposeful in their pursuit of ways to make work fun and interesting.  Generally my job is to help companies or organizations see the importance of happiness and fun at work, and how that happiness can directly relate to better bottom line results.  But in this case I was preaching to the choir.  This was a company filled with people who already knew how to have fun at work.  They had it down!  It might sound trite or cliché but I learned as much from them as they learned from me. It was an honor.

Here’s the letter. It made me feel good and very happy to receive.

Hi Brad,

Im sure you get this all the time but from what I could tell of your personality Im sure it never gets old for you so….

I just wanted to say Thank You for coming to talk to us and let you know how much not only I, but our entire company, enjoyed your presentation.  I can walk down the hallway and still hear people talking about it and laughing.  You have given us a sense of rejuvenation by showing us how to accept happiness in our work and it has already started to translate into a healthier environment.  You have been given a gift, and I wish the very best for you in your business and life endeavors, because I know now how much joy you can bring to peoples’ lives.  Take care and I hope we meet again sometime down the road.  If nothing else, at least you have over a hundred new friends that can help you if you ever need an AC Drive–HOW COOL IS THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!  :)

Johnnie, you absolutely made my day. Thanks for taking time out of your life to lift other people up – in this case me.

And that’s my point:  Johnnie is a good role model. Who can you compliment or thank today that will make them feel as good as Johnnie made me feel?  Thankfulness is a powerful tool and an awesome motivator.  It works on both the giver and the receiver.

So share some thankfulness and motivation today.  Start what I call a Joy Loop, and get back as much good feelings as you give.  It worked for me!

If you or your organization needs a boost and a reminder about the power of happiness at work, or is looking for a funny motivational speaker who can both motivate and entertain. I hope you’ll give us a call.

Here’s a short video clip of the flash mob we did with Johnnie and his organization there in Texas. Can you believe we did a flash mob for a corporate outing? Look at their faces and tell me you don’t want that for your group. :-)

Motivational Speaker, Texas Speaker, Totally Flattered Dude!

Here’s some not very surprising news: turns out when social scientists study what impact a person has on a team, a negative person has a negative impact on the group. This means if you add a negative person to your team, Negative Nellie Olsen is able to pull the team down. Remember Little House on the Prairie?  Laura never would have gotten in half the trouble she did, but for Nellie Olsen. Nellie’s negativity managed to ruin all kinds of things for Laura, until Pa put her straight. (How many think Michael Landon was a stupid casting choice for Pa? Where’s the beard?  Where’s the twinkling blue eyes? And what’s with the California salon tan and the permed hair? I know, I know, he was the producer, so he got the starring role. But still…)

Anyway, the opposite is also true. The addition of a positive person to the team brings the whole team up. Positive Pollyanna is a winner! A young girl, Pollyanna Whittier, brings an entire town in Vermont to gladness. If you don’t believe me, read the book or see the Disney movie. (Pollyanna, by Eleanor H. Porter, pub. 1913; Disney film, released 1960, starring Hayley Mills. (Don’t you just love Hayley Mills?  The Parent Trap; The Flame Trees of Thika. I thought she was in Born Free, but that was someone else. Don’t you just love the internet? No wonder it takes me so long to write these blog posts.)

One small bummer—apparently Negative Nellie has a greater impact on the team than Positive Pollyanna does. I don’t know, though. I think Pollyanna could take Nellie Olsen in a smackdown. Nellie is a wuss!

So who do you want to be? Optimistic yet tough Pollyanna? Or whiny, wussy Nellie Olsen? What impact do you want to have on your organization? On your marriage, family, work situation, wine club, or swim team? All are organizations, all are teams, and all are affected by Pollyannas and Nellies.

The way I see it, is you have three choices:

  • Choosing to be negative. Who would do that? Who wakes up wanting to bring everyone down? Yet there are people who are vortexes of negative energy. Psychic vampires as a friend of mine calls them. Is this a conscious choice made by these Nellies, or is their attitude taken by accident or years of habit? One can only hope it’s accidental. (See my blog about Attitude Adjustment for more information about choosing your attitude)

  • A net zero impact. Meaning, a person is neither negative nor positive, or that their positivity and optimism are equally balanced by their negativity and pessimism. They are in “Equilibrium.” (Remember that from High School chemistry? I loved that word—equilibrium. That’s the only thing I loved about chemistry.) Again, I ask you, who picks that? Do we really want to be equally up and equally down, basically a flat line? Not me!

  • A positive impact. (Hint:  Best choice!!) These people leave a positive legacy. Again, this result could often be accidental, but, and here’s the clincher, it doesn’t have to be.

So ask yourself this question: What can I do to make myself a Pollyanna? How can I make my workplace a happier place. Or my family-life happier? Or my life in general?

You know, Pollyanna’s are often viewed pejoratively (now isn’t that a $100 word), meaning that it’s not a complimentary term. “Pollyanna” often refers to someone who’s blithely naïve or unconcerned about just how drastic the particular situation is. But if you look at the original Pollyanna, she’s not this way at all.  Pollyanna decided to be someone who had a positive outlook. She played a game called “The Glad Game,” taught to her by her father, where she would try to turn the most depressing situation into something positive. For example, as a gift she received a pair of crutches (a really crappy gift), but turned it around by finding the good side—how glad she was not to have to use them!

Okay, it seems a little corny in today’s hurly-burly, modern, seriously screwed-up world. But guess what? The world when Pollyanna was written was seriously screwed-up also. It was the eve of World War I. People were uncertain and unsettled. Financial crises were common, money was tight, and recession a reality. Sound familiar?

The problems of today are, frankly, the same problems of yesterday, just the gift-wrap is different. That’s why it’s more important than ever to be a Pollyanna. Make it a conscious choice, like Pollyanna did. Be honest about which accidental group you belong to. Don’t be a flatliner. Especially don’t be a Nellie Olsen, and responsible for locking your group, your family, your workplace in the cellar of misery. (That was a cool movie too—Misery, based on the Stephen King novel. Hayley Mills wasn’t in it.)

Decide to be Pollyanna and lift people up. Call yourself a balloon, if you don’t like calling yourself a Pollyanna.  (Although it’s going to be kind of weird trying to explain why your name-tag says, “Balloon” on it.  Come to think of it, it might be weird answering to “Pollyanna” also, especially if you’re 6’2” and sport a mustache.)

So be a balloon. Choose Pollyanna. Soar with the eagles. Don’t be a Nellie Olsen. Avoid flat-lining. Or think up your own metaphor. You can do it!

I was cruising through the blog-o-sphere the other day. (Doesn’t that word (blog-o-sphere) put you in mind of a hamster in one of those clear plastic rolley things that they run around in? Maybe that’s what we really are: a bunch of hamsters in rolley plastic things cruising from blog post to blog post, bouncing off them and then heading the other way. Or maybe not.) Anyway, as I was cruising, I ran across this article on Forbes.com.

Hey, I said to myself, this article is called “10 Steps to Happiness at Work.” I speak about Happiness at Work. I know how to read. I need to totally read this article.

Then I saw the picture of Beyonce Knowles advertising face cream, clicked on that, and off I went in my hamster-like rolley thing . . . . No, really, I did read the article, and after thinking about it, decided to write about it. Isn’t that what we all took English class for way back in the day?

So this guy, Srikumar Rao, wrote a book called Happiness at Work, and Forbes took some of the ideas from it and condensed it down to “10 Steps to Happiness at Work.” As if you can find happiness at work or in life or anywhere by simply following steps. Actually, isn’t that what we all want out of a self-help book: the magic answer. Follow my 10 Steps, 7 Habits, 50 Shades, 3 Stooges (okay, those were for me), and life will be simple.

Well, guess what folks? Life ain’t simple. And neither is happiness. But sometimes, it could be well, maybe a little, eensie, weensie bit simpler. That’s not to say I didn’t like what Mr. Rao had to say (I know, I know, he’s my competition, I shouldn’t say nice things—but you know, I’m just following some of his advice: Don’t waste time being jealous. I think that was number 5, or maybe 6.). Anyway, without having read his book, and going off of what Forbes.com wrote, which who knows, if the writer isn’t very good at writing book reports, could be way off the mark, and I think I’m digressing into a run-on sentence…. Mrs. Nelson, my fifth grade English teacher, would be very upset right now. STOP READING MRS. NELSON.

Anyway, what I’m trying to say, is that Mr. Rao has some pretty complicated and profound things to say about happiness in the workplace. Deep stuff. In fact, I would guess that his ideas are drawn from thousands of years of human philosophy and religion and wisdom, which Forbes.com condensed into 10 Steps, so they can sell more magazines and raise advertising dollars. (Thousands of years into 10 Steps—Imagine! And with pretty pictures!) Here are some of the Steps:

  • Stop labeling yourself
  • Don’t be jealous
  • Let go of grudges
  • Invest in the process, not the outcome
  • Think about other people
  • Find passion in you and not your job
  • Stop wanting so much
  • Be mindful

This is all great stuff, and I heartily subscribe to it. But although Forbes.com has the 10 Steps, along with the pretty pictures, it certainly doesn’t have the “How in the heck am I supposed to Let Go of Grudges,” part of the 10 Steps. Or the “How do I Invest in the Process, Not the Outcome, and by the way, what the heck does that mean exactly?”

Of course, we could all read Mr. Rao’s book and find out. But even if we did, we might be back where we started. My point simply is that people from Sufi mystics to Native American shamans, to Buddhist monks and Christian saints have been looking for ways to achieve all of these things, to practice all of these things, ever since cave man days, and holy cow (that’s a Hindu reference, BTW), it ain’t easy to do. (Did you like the way I tried to get in all of the different major religions in there? I’m sure I missed several, but I tried.). Of course I know I should be more mindful, but what can I do now, this minute, to raise my happiness quotient at work? It’s a mystery. One of the great mysteries of life really, along with, Why are we Here? What is Our Purpose? And Where Did I Put my Car Keys?

So how does one achieve Happiness at Work? Short of, that is, abandoning all your worldly goods and heading off to live in a cave somewhere to practice yoga and smoke peyote? Although if you do that, you wouldn’t have work to go to anymore, which might raise your happiness. (Certainly the peyote would.)

But seriously, I think a good start to finding some happiness and satisfaction in work and in life would be to read Mr. Rao’s book and really take the time to ingest, understand, and then practice what he has to say. I tell my audiences all the time that it takes time and effort to really achieve happiness, that it’s something worth working for, but that it doesn’t come automatically. Wow. What I think I’m saying is a lot like what Mr. Rao is saying: that you have to be mindful of happiness. That you have to recognize it when it comes and celebrate it when it comes.

However if you don’t have three weeks or even the desire to read a book (you didn’t read that Mrs. Nelson!!!!), another idea for boosting your happiness at work would be to hire me to come motivate you and your work-mates. You don’t always need a 1000 page book to put you on the road to job satisfaction. You need a motivational speaker on How to Be Happy at Work. That’s me!!

I recently did some work with a wonderful government audience in California.  They had me do my all day happiness at work seminar called Laugh-O-Nomics™.  We did everything from motivation, to collaboration, to team building and facilitation.  I was there a full day, but it felt like about 90 minutes … It was fun.

Sandia National Labs Testimonials

So to anybody that might be looking for a motivational speaker to come out to your event we would highly recommend Brad. He did a fantastic job and I feel like we all left with the feeling that happiness is an attitude and that you choose happiness and I would highly recommend him for any job that you might have.

Brad is a Funny Motivational Speaker

Brad was not only funny and entertaining, he had strong motivational skills. He made sure to speak to people asking what they wanted, what their organization was about, what was important to them. He also turned around and was very interactive with the crowd. Was he dirty? No, he really tried to stay away from that even though he wanted to. He wanted to ****. No, kidding, kidding. He actually paid strong attention to what we needed as an organization.

I think he really helped us understand that we have the choice of whether we want to be happy or not and we need to really focus on taking that happiness with us at home and at work and that it’s possible to actually enjoy your job and be happy at work.

So, it was an event that we were hosting to hopefully boost the morale and reinvigorate our group of professionals to get them re-motivated and enthusiastic about their jobs. There was a lot of laughter, everybody was having a good time; got a lot of positive feedback. People seemed to be really enjoying themselves and also had them thinking and so Brad, one of the things that Brad helped with was we had to create the balloon animals, where the, or the balloon statue, where we all had to interact with each other and work together to create something within a matter of a few minutes and it worked out really well. As a team, it promoted teamwork and there was a lot of laughter. Everybody was having a good time. It was really engaging. I think that was one of the best parts about it, other than the things we will take home with us.

Sad Sack just made crappy decisions.Sad sack

We’ve all said it: “Adjust your attitude.” “Make that frown turn upside down.” “Don’t worry. Be happy.” “Why are you always in such a bad mood?”

And then, of course, comes the classic response, “I can’t help it. It’s just the way I am.”

What that means is, “I can’t change. I’m just being me, and the me I am is a sad sack.” (How can a sack be sad, anyway?*)

Well, turns out, that’s not entirely true. Turns out, actually, that we have more control over our attitude than we ever thought. Who says? Social Psychologist Sonja Lyubomirsky says, that’s who.

And just who is Sonja Lyubomirsky, and why does she think she knows so much? Because she’s Dr. Sonja Lyubomirsky, Ph.d., researcher at Stanford University, super-smarty-pants, recipient of numerous grants from the National Institute of Mental Health, and author of the book, The How of Happiness: A New Approach to Getting the Life You Want (Penguin Books 2007).

And it’s not just her. Many social psychologists have studied the mystery surrounding what it is that exactly makes us happy, or un-happy as the case may be. Dr. L’s bibliography in her book is 45 pages long! That’s a lot of books, articles, speeches and research on the how’s and why’s of happiness.

If you don’t want to read all the research, here’s the Cliffs Notes:

There are three things going on when it comes to a person’s happiness or contentment:

  1. Genetic predisposition. Yep, you got it. A person’s genes (and not the 501 kind either) sets out his or her baseline on the Happy-o-Meter (a highly technical piece of scientific, specialized, calibrated, opinionated measuring equipment). Dr. L. says that 50% of a person’s contentment comes from their parents, and their grandparents, and their great-grandparents, and on and on—and not in the way you think, like the nagging, the guilt, the “I just hope you’re wearing clean underwear,” kind either. (What’s with all the underwear references, anyway?). In other words, your inherited temperament or personality does account for 50% of your happiness.

  2. Life circumstances. You know what these are. How much money you have; what kind of family were you born into; how good or not-so-good is your health; do you have a sick spouse, or naughty children; whether you live on top of a Superfund site; whether your underwear is clean (just kidding); you know, those kinds of things. Turns out “those things” have direct impact on how happy we are, but not, interestingly enough, a lot. These mostly out-of-our-control type of life circumstances have an approximately 10% impact on our happiness level, says the Happy-o-Meter.

  3. How we think and what we do. That’s the final thing. Our attitude. Our thoughts. Our outlook. If you’ve been doing the math, it turns out that 40% of our happiness is dependent upon our attitude.

Wow! That’s a lot of percents!  Our attitude, which we do get to control, accounts for 40% of our happiness according to the Happy-o-Meter. (The Happy-o-Meter is good at third grade math.)

The Best News to Hit Your Attitude All Year Long

This is fabulous news. We can’t control some things, but good old number three on the list up there, we can control. Even big things like tragedy or winning the lottery only dictate 10% of what makes us happy. (Well, in my case, winning a 10 million dollar lottery prize would make me 100% happier, but Dr. L. never asked me.)

Happiness Speaker Brad Montgomery at Lockheed Martin

What?! you say. That can’t be true. Winning the lottery would make anybody really, really happy, including all the people Dr. L did ask!. Probably 200% happier. (Ignore the frown from your fourth grade math teacher.)

But guess what? Dr. L says, things settle over time. People can be wildly unhappy or happy for moments in time, but after a while they settle and their happiness level goes back to baseline. Even if they win the $10 million. Even if a satellite crashes into their backyard ruining the newly installed patio. Or even if their chihuahua falls into a pothole and has to be retrieved by a fireman.

Good news is that we can control the 40%. How we think and what we do. For me this is excellent news. Forty percent is enough to take a really horrible day and make it only “bad.” I have the power to turn my day from horrible to bad. From bad into average. Or from average into outstanding. I have the power! (Remember that song? Sing it now. You have the Power!)

So what does this mean? Well, for one thing, turns out your grandma was right: you can turn your frown upside down. (Grandma would have been awesome in the workplace.) You can listen to reggae: Don’t worry. Be happy. You can adjust your attitude almost as much as you can adjust your underwear. (I can adjust my underwear 40%, no problem.) Right now if you want to be happy, remember how much is up to you. Stop whining. Start smiling. Focus on what you do and how you think. Not rocket science. Common sense.

And guess what else? If you’re going through a difficult time, a tragedy, a medical crisis, or fielding any of the rotten tomatoes life throws, knowing that you can control your response to it helps. You will get through it, you will heal, and you will rise back up to your average norm for happiness. It’s your response, your willingness to hit that Reset Button on the Happy-o-Meter, that really counts.

Extra Credit Question: What are you doing with your 40%? Are you making the right choices? Our control is greater than we would guess. Get up and start being happy now.

* According to Wikipedia, The Sad Sack is an American fictional comic strip and comic book character created by Sgt. George Baker during World War II. Set in the United States Army, Sad Sack depicted an otherwise unnamed, lowly private experiencing some of the absurdities and humiliations of military life. The title was a euphemistic shortening of the military slang “sad sack of shit”, common during WWII. (Do you really want to be known as a “sad sack of shit”? I mean, really? Your grandmother would NOT approve.)
