Protect Your Sphere So That Nothing Negative Can Penetrate Your Mindset

In this episode of Mindset Hackers we will talk about the quote “You are the average of the 5 people that you spend the most time with” by the great mindset mentor and personal development guru, Jim Rohn.

Jim is known as the godfather of personal development and was a mentor to Tony Robbins and so many other greats.

As much as I love and respect the legend Jim Rohn, I completely disagree, but not in a bad way. Jim was right that spending time around the right people, or the wrong people, can massively impact how your success follows.

The way I say it, you are actually the sum of EVERYONE that enters your sphere (your mindset, your environment), and this isn’t just people, but you are also the average of everything that you consume, such as the media, the music, the podcasts, the books, the shows, the news, the food and even your personal space.

You are so valuable and your sphere is so worthy of being protected from people who will suck your energy or bring drama...

From Homeless and Drug Addicted To Professional MMA Fighter - Shane Fichter Interview

 

Today on Mindset Hackers I bring you a real life Rocky story. This is a powerful interview with a former Professional Mixed Martial Artist and Business Owner, Shane Fichter.

Shane has an incredibly inspiring story of growing up with a meth addicted mother and lived homeless for a good portion of his childhood. He also suffered the loss of his father to suicide, but later was inspired by a hard working uncle.

Later in life, Shane started using painkillers which lead to an opioid addiction and then hardcore drug use.

The rock bottom was ending up in prison, then deciding he needed to make a change.

After getting clean and hitting the lowest of lows, Shane started training, then fighting in the cage.

Shane discusses his mindset, mental toughness, ownership, work ethic and more on this must hear episode of Mindset Hackers.

1 - Because it costs money and it will take away from what I have earned or saved up, I'll be going backwards instead of forwards.

2 - Because it takes up time and with as busy as I am right now, I just can't put anything more on my plate.

3 - Because now isn't the right time. The timing will be much better down the road when I am less busy.

Now, I know you are thinking those sound like a bunch of excuses that people say, 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙨𝙚 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙪𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮 𝙢𝙮 𝙤𝙬𝙣 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙙𝙨.

But it really doesn't matter if it's and excuse or legit because the result is the exact same ...... nothing happens or changes.

Last fall I was asked to join what seemed to be a very expensive mastermind group and I said those 3 things, I don't have the time, it costs too much and now isn't the right time.

I felt good about the decision and had no regrets.

But this May I was approached again to join, but the price had increased another $5k from 8 months before and would exceed my mortgage.

95% 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙝*𝙩 𝙬𝙚 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙧𝙮 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙣𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙣 𝙝𝙖𝙥𝙥𝙚𝙣𝙨.

Imagine a door in front of you.

You don't exactly know what is behind the door, you think there could be opportunity, but also there could be danger.

There is a 5% chance of danger and +60% chance of opportunity.

But you fear what will happen if you walk through that door, instead of the opportunity that might unfold.

So you stay where you are and don't walk through.

𝘽𝙚𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙙𝙤𝙤𝙧 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙛𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙨 𝙡𝙞𝙠𝙚:

Being judged.
Feeling like and imposter.
Failing.
Looking bad.
Running out of money.
Not having enough time.
It not being perfect.

𝘽𝙪𝙩 𝙖𝙡𝙨𝙤 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙗𝙚 𝙤𝙥𝙥𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙪𝙣𝙞𝙩𝙮 𝙡𝙞𝙠𝙚:

Making more money.
Gaining more confidence.
Meeting people that lift you up.
Learning new things.
Finding your voice.
Letting go of your triggers.
Serving more people.

So, back to the fears, 95% of those worries will never happen in the first place.

And the 5% of the time that the do? What's the worse that can happen?

The real danger lies in staying in the same place, where you aren't safe anyway, because its not what is behind the door...

Myths of the hustle and grind culture

Myths of Hustle and Grind culture:

Busy-ness is the same as productivity
Time is money
I have to work hard to succeed
If it's urgent I need to act all frantic
I don't have enough time

What is Busy-ness? It's a feeling of stress, overwhelm, lack of time, rushing around, all associated with trying to GSD.

The crazy thing is you can still feel Busy-ness even when you aren't GSD.

And GSD can be done more effectively without Busy-ness.

If you want to always be stressed out running full speed on the hamster wheel, missing out on life, always chasing, count me out H&G culture.

It's time to break through some of the myths of the hustle and grind culture and take back your own life before you spend the entire time on the dopamine treadmill and miss out on all the beauty in life.

How to turn your knowledge into cash that pays you over and over

I want to share my passion for building digital courses with you and give you some tips on how to get started or even just get curious.

Digital courses are great because you can use your knowledge (even if you know 20% more than the average person on a topic) and there will be people who will pay you to help them get to the next few steps.

The cool thing is that once you create the content, you can sell them over and over again and create passive income. Plus they can be scaled into the millions!

I actually know a 2nd grade teacher that created a course that helped other 2nd grade teachers (yes you read that correctly, other 2nd grade teachers....not teachers of any grade) with student material) who has scaled her course into the high 6 figures.

Additionally digital courses can be created while you have a full time job, they don't require much overhead or storing products, it isn't a race to the bottom like competing with Amazon or Ebay (been there) and all the tools you need are...

Success to a lot of people means:

High paying job.

The career that parents wanted them to have.

A certain amount of money or net worth.

Nice car and house.

Title or status.

Beach body.

We have all been condition from when we were young, perhaps not always intentionally, but in some cases extremely targeted (advertising, media, social media and culture) on who to 'be'.

The other problem is all those things listed above are not permanent and can be taken away quickly.

We either feel like we are lacking if we aren’t there,

Or we get there and fear losing it,

Or we keep chasing after we get there.

Don’t get me wrong, those are fine things to aspire to if that is truly what you want at your core.

But start by asking what it is that you truly want aside from the influence of everything we've been told to want in life.

For me, it’s freedom, and having lots of money doesn’t...
