ELITE PerforMENce with Dr. Brad

Everyone wants to progress in life but often what stops us is our ability to understand what progress means for us personally and assessing our life goals.    Men, taking massive imperfect action is similar to putting a bandaid on a major bleed…it’s not fixing the underlying problem...which is a mindset issue.   We will be unpacking the difference between perfectionism and high standard of excellence as our solution to overthinking, over-exhausting our energy, and throwing our centered spirit out of alignment.    After this episode you’ll have more insight on how...

What Does Winning Mean To You? show art What Does Winning Mean To You?

ELITE PerforMENce with Dr. Brad

Men, the challenge is that we all want to win.  But how do we know when we are winning? Not all success is sustainable.  Not at all success is healthy. You can be winning and losing at the same time.  You can be winning in at work but losing at life. We define success by Material, Money, Media (social), Merit (what you do).  When we define success by these things there is no end. You can succeed in a healthy way. Winning is: Selfless, Service, and  Simultaneously Rewarding. Why are you going after your goals? What is the direction?  Become satisfied (fulfilled)...

How To Successfully Start A New Habit show art How To Successfully Start A New Habit

ELITE PerforMENce with Dr. Brad

It’s not hard to start a new habit, but it is hard to STICK a new habit!  The reality can be very hard to start a new habit.  You need to develop a level of consistency to build a new habit. The biggest issue to sustain a new habit is implementing methods only.  We even try to schedule the new method to make it stick.    But the formula is new method plus mindset to make it the new habit stick.  You cannot not consistently behave in a way that is incongruent with who you believe yourself to be. You cannot out method a poor mindset!   You need clarification!...

I know you have BIG goals that you are excited about! I’m talking about the BIG ones!! The visions, the dreams, and the hopes that are almost SCARY when you think about them! I get it! I have those same ones.

 

Here is what typically happens…

  • We get excited about our goals and dreams…
  • We write them down
  • We start going after them

And we think that the biggest challenge to achieving our goal is the hard work & consistency of doing the actual tasks that will help us achieve the goal.

 

Therefore, we invest our time, money, and energy toward things that help us with those tasks

For example:

  • Health goals à Get Gym membership
  • Business goals à Purchase and take an online course or conference
  • Career goals à Development of new skills
  • Husband & Fatherhood à Spend more time with wife & family

But how many times have you tried the NEW THING or some NEW TASK that sounds like it’s supposed to work…and then results never change?? OR it only changes temporarily??

 

Trust me…I’m not saying these tasks and behaviors are not important, because they are…HOWEVER…what I’ve found is that it IS NOT THE TASKS AND BEHAVIORS that are your greatest challenge in achieving your goals.

 

The greatest challenge you have in achieving your goals is NOT GETTING BETTER…it is BELIEVING BETTER!!

  • It’s believing enough to get started, but also believing enough to continue when everything around you says…it ain’t possible!!

 

 

Remember the ‘success sequence’ and embed it in your memory:

 

Beliefs à Thoughts à Feelings à Actions/Behaviors à Results

 

We are trying to change our results by changing our behaviors only. And the reality is, we aren’t going back deep enough into the success sequence to create new lasting change. To create new results you have to have new belief…not just new behaviors! The new belief will translate into new behaviors which will eventually turn into new results. The beliefs that go in are the results that come out!

 

Also, consider this. Typically, the way our internal beliefs are formed is by our external environment. Our external environment includes everything around us including (1) people around us, (2) things we watch and listen to, and a HUGE one is (3) our current results. Our current results, which are often not where we want to be, is constantly convincing us that WE ARE OUR CURRENT RESULTS! Our current results, shape our internal belief and identity. For example, if you currently earn a certain income, but want to make more, then your current income is shaping your mind to believe that you ARE your current income…and therefore leading to thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that keep you at that income.

 

The good news is that your mind and the beliefs you have are equally influenced by your internal environment, just as strong and effective as your external environment. Your internal environment includes (1) things you tell yourself, (2) memories, (3) new intentional directed thoughts. Therefore, you can literally direct your thoughts to create beliefs that will lead to new behaviors and new results!

 

However, your greatest challenge is maintaining the thoughts that create a belief that is consistent with the goals you are pursuing…when EVERYTHING AROUND IS TRYING TO CONVINCE YOU THAT YOU ARE YOUR CURRENT RESULTS!

 

I’m here to tell you…YOU ARE NOT YOUR CURRENT RESULTS! YOU ARE YOUR FUTURE GOAL!!

 

For example…I was once a night owl. I HATED getting up early. However, I needed to change my routine. I did everything I could to switch my habits from night owl to early riser…bought books, set my alarm earlier, etc. But it wouldn’t happen. Not until I started working on a new belief, by directing my thoughts toward believing I was an early riser…did I change. I now get up consistently between 5-6am and get more done in my day. NEW BELIEF = NEW RESULTS

 

Here are some steps you can practice to start building a new belief:

  1. Train the brain
    1. Write an affirmation (start with 1…whatever your greatest goal is):
      1. Begin the affirmation with the words…”I AM __________” and fill in the blank with the vision you have of yourself. (i.e. I AM a millionaire, I AM in great shape, I AM a great & loving husband, etc.)
    2. Reinforce the affirmation:
      1. “I AM the type of man who _________”. Fill in the blank with behaviors that the person described in your affirmation would do. (i.e. I am the type of person that calls more clients…that works out 3 times a week…etc.
    3. Say the affirmations daily multiple times a day
      1. Believe what you say. Envision and experience the future achieved goal when you say the affirmations and reinforcements. Connect emotionally with your goal and FEEL it happening!
    4. Create a positive external environment
      1. What are you listening to?? Listen to things that inspire and help solidify your beliefs…like this podcast J

Stay consistent with these actions to create a new internal environment and watch what happens! But remember…your toughest challenge will be actually believing it. Stay consistent and you’ll get better…and so will your results!
