Want to know something I know about you?

You have incredible plans. You have big dreams. And I love that about you!

So out of love, I’m here to tell you, you’re being sold something that doesn’t serve you.

The idea of mindset has become polluted and overused in the marketplace.

The reality is, if you want to be successful in your business & life, you must understand that it’s not about “working on your mindset” with wishing & hoping and trying harder while sitting in the lotus position. Instead, it’s vital that you start to understand that it’s all about the way you think. You must purposefully step in to train your brain to think.

In this episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I go into a bit of a rant. All for your benefit. I’ve been watching common messaging around mindset online and it gets me impassioned. Mindset relies too much on willpower, which will fatigue like any other overused muscle.

If you’re ready to step into the empowered position of training your brain instead of wishing and hoping of mindset, let me show you why and how.

The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:

  • “It’s not about mindset. It’s about training your brain.”

It’s your brain’s job to keep you safe, not successful. You must become purposeful and take the lead in hardwiring your brain for success. “Mindset” is something that is being sold to you but that isn’t serving you. It relies on willpower. Listen in to hear why mindset work is not the most efficient use of your time and attention. [4:09]

  • “Nothing is a setback. Everything happens for you.”

But… you cannot just say “everything happens for me” without the brain priming that gives your brain direction for what you want to happen. You must build the neural-pathways to bring you the success you define and desire. [6:36]

  • “Your subconscious mind doesn’t think on its own. It does what you tell it to over and over again.”

That’s why you get stuck - when you don’t purposefully tell your brain what you want through brain priming, its only option is to then fall back on old thought patterns that no longer serve you. When you really start to use these tools and put the power of the brain to work for you, you see your relationships, health, environment, and business improve. Why? Because you become the person you were always intended to be but just had layers on top of it. [11:04]

Your breakthrough is so much closer than you realize. The only thing that’s holding you back is the way you think: your automatic programming and how you’re training your brain towards your future.

With 2020 right in front of us, start taking daily steps toward your success through breaking down old limiting beliefs and brain priming in what you want. If you want some guidance on this, you can start with some brain priming audios I recorded for you to use morning and night. My goal is to see YOU become the creator of your thoughts and not merely “work on your mindset” without lasting change.

Today I want to give a shoutout to one of my Epic Success podcast listeners who left a 5-star review titled “Taking My Thoughts Captive”:

“Quite honestly, I never realized what kinds of thoughts were buried in my subconscious & running my life. Dr Shannon is giving me the tools to really see the thoughts that are out of alignment with the truth, tame them captive & get rid of them - replacing them with new thoughts that are obedient to Christ. The brain science with which she imparts her wisdom really provide concrete steps to make lasting changes in my thinking. The tools are helping me propel my life forward to becoming the person God already sees in me, so that I can accomplish the things prepared in advance for me to do.”

I absolutely love sharing the brain-based process of creating success in your life & business with you each week on the Epic Success podcast! Reviews are how I know you’re finding value and help me share Epic Success with more people!

If you have something you want to say about the Epic Success podcast, I’d love it if you’d post a 5-star review on iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify or wherever you listen to podcasts.
