This new episode of Mindset Hackers talks on how to get up from a dark place and transfrom yourself into a confident person.
When you get hurt, you close up, you defend, you protect, you put your walls up, you close the blinds, you shut the doors, you close the gates.
Losing someone you love. A divorce. A failed business. Getting fired.
These are things that can cause anyone to shut down and go into Zombie mode.
Confidence Coach Claudia Wyatt understands, she has been there, to the depths and back.
Claudia had spiraled down after a brutal divorce and several deaths in her family including her father, sister and dog.
Blow after blow, this took its toll on her until she could barely function except on auto pilot.
Retreated from her life, retreated from herself, she went inward in the wrong way.
Getting by, day to day, autopilot and lost.
Eventually she reached a point where something that had to give.
Claudia details her 4 step process of healing, mindset and self love that pulled her...
Visualization is an exceptionally powerful tool that you can use to create any dream that you wish. This is why so many high performing athletes use visualization as part of their routines, it is a way to rehearse the outcome that you want.
Athletes that use visualization include:
My question is if these athletes swear by visualization, and this is a tool that anyone can use, are you taking advantage of visualization to create the life that you desire?
I first read about visualization nearly 30 years ago when I was given a book called "Psycho Cybernetics".
In the book it talked about a study that was done over 20 days to improve 'free throw' accuracy with a basket ball.
Group 1 - no practicing through 20 days.
Group 2 - 20 minutes per day throwing free throws.
Group 3 - 20 minutes per day visualizing free throws.
Group 1 - no changes at the end of the study.
Group 2 - 24% improvement in accuracy.
Your beliefs around money have everything to do with your financial success later on in life.
When you were a child, in your most malleable state, you are absorbing your beliefs about life from the people and situations that you experience.
You are literally being programmed by your parents, by advertising, by your peers, even by the financial system.
You were told to save, save, save. Kirsten and I agree that this teaches people to live in scarcity. To 'live within your means'.
True abundance is not living constricted, it is about expansion.
Kirsten and I talk about some of the things that we hear from our parents in our childhood that create our money blocks and money limiting beliefs.
In this new episode of Mindset Hackers Podcast Kirsten also talks about Grow and Arrow, her financial consulting firm, where she not only advises financially but helps her clients remove money blocks and limiting beliefs around money, and you don't often find that.
Kirsten is also a master of using...
Today On Mindset Hackers we are going to be talking about what I call the Dopamine Treadmill, when you constantly chase the symbols of success and still end up so unfulfilled and unhappy in life and why that happens from a neuroscience perspective.
I'll also give 5 tips on how to let happiness, success and wealth coexist together.
Matthew McConaughey said it best in Wolf of Wall Street:
"𝙄𝙩'𝙨 𝙗𝙚𝙘𝙖𝙪𝙨𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙮 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙙𝙙𝙞𝙘𝙩𝙚𝙙."
"Come up with another brilliant idea. A 'Special idea'. Another stock to reinvest his earnings. And he will come back every single time. You keep them on the ferris wheel and keep it spinning, and spinning, and spinning."
This is why there can be so much wealth co-existing with so much unhappiness, anxiety and depression.
Dopamine is the 'molecule of more'.
It's all very intentional.
Social media 'likes'.
Dopamine is the reward seeking chemical and is highest when the payoff is unpredictable,...
Daylight savings time changed the course of my life.
I know that's a bold statement but it's true, here's what happened:
For my entire life, Fall DST was the day when you get an extra hour to sleep in!
After a few days you start to normalize to the new schedule.
In my days as a club promoter and DJ, it even meant an extra hour of partying, not to mention it often fell on Halloween night (the best clubbing night of the year).
But in 2018 on DST, for just one day out of my life, I decided to keep that hour for my personal development instead of sleeping in.
That extra hour was pure 'me' time, and put even in front of my workouts.
This is how I pay myself first with time.
I've now had 1000+ hours of meditation, reading books, listening to podcasts, journaling and visualization.
My stress level is virtually non-existent, my happiness and joy are through the roof and my income is extremely abundant because of the opportunities that have unfolded.
I only made the switch once and that hour...
On this fresh new episode of Mindset Hackers I have discussed the idea of 'raising your frequency' to bring up the energy level of those you interact with.
Imagine being able to walk into your next interview, teach a class or a coach, do your next sales call or presentation, be on a stage or on a podcast and come in with a transferrable energy that lifts others up and inspires.
Epic sales people know how to influence and inspire by what I call the 'Transfer of Enthusiasm'.
Your energy level is completely transferable and you will be able to affect not only your own state, but the state of others, which can put them in a place where they are ready to take action.
You know those people that you meet who just make you feel good when you are around them, they bring up the level of energy in a room, they know how to impact others, they influence those around them.
You also know the people that are a buzzkill in a room and bring down the energy, and have the frequency of Zombie.
On this episode of Mindset Hackers we talk about the only 2 things that you need to succeed in sales, business, entrepreneurship or any other professional pursuit.
Before we start, I'd like to share my 4 mindset mantras that I say to myself every single day:
Affirmation #1 - If they can do it, so can I.
Affirmation #2 - I can figure this out.
Affirmation #3 - I can go harder.
Affirmation #4 - I will do whatever it takes.
Those four mindset mantras are painted above my shower so that every morning, above my cold shower, I see those as I embrace the cold. I thump my chest and I say those out loud and I prime my day to crush it with the momentum of a freight train. Then I start my day.
Now back to the 2 things you need for success:
Knowledge & Action.
Simple right? Not so much. It takes a strong person to seek out knowledge because as soon as you do, then the excuses start showing up in your mindset.
We allow ourselves to believe that these are real limitations, but they are not,...
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...
