Are you at the end of your rope? Have you tried the yoyo diets, support groups, counting calories, etc.? Tired of hearing from people who tell you it’s just a matter of discipline?
These thoughts may be familiar to you: “I know what I need to do, I’m just not doing it”, or “Why do I keep doing that over and over when it only ends up hurting me?”, or “Why can’t I break this habit or pattern”.
I once had an athlete client say to me “I know I can do this because I’ve done it countless times in the past, but for some reason I just can’t do it now!”. Another common statement I hear is “I know I need to work out more, I just can’t get myself to do it”. How about being terrified to speak up or speak in public? That’s another common one. Maybe you just worry and stress about everything? It seems that you can’t pull the trigger on this thing you want to do.
You’re looking for the confidence to overcome your mental blocks like these, or break bad habits, right? Good, that’s what I do, so you are in the right place. I’m a mental toughness trainer and now let me give you my definition of mental toughness.
What is Mental Toughness?
Mental toughness is focused, confident, determined and resilient, especially under pressure. This sounds like the opposite of all those problems I mentioned earlier, right? What are the reasons for these types of problems? Here you go:
Reasons You Have Mental Blocks:
1. Your conscious mind
Your conscious mind is the part of your mind that chooses and decides on how you want to live and do things.
2. Your subconscious mind
Your subconscious mind is the functioning of all your automatic processes. This part of your mind that operates based on your beliefs, or belief programs that are networks of beliefs working together.
What’s the bottom line of these mental blocks?
If you have beliefs or programs that are in opposition to what you want and choose with your conscious mind, your subconscious mind always wins that conflict in the long run until you change the underlying beliefs and programs.
Fighting the Subconscious Mind
Your subconscious mind is 100 times more powerful over you than your conscious choices. To help you understand, imagine a rider on an elephant. How much power does a rider on an elephant have over the elephant to get the elephant to do what he wants? It all depends on the elephant’s training, right?
Therefore, if you want to change something about yourself that isn’t working for you today, you’ve got to re-program your unconscious mind (re-train the elephant). This is it! This is the secret to changing anything about yourself.
What’s The Secret To Changing Anything About Yourself?
The truth is, there is no magic trick or silver bullet that works to do this overnight. It does not exist despite all the advertising you might have seen like: “Lose 10 pounds a week and keep it off forever eating whatever you want.” Pure snake oil and I know you’re a lot smarter than that.
Having said that, over 1500 people in person and tens of thousands online have had success with my systematic process that changes your programming and beliefs (re-trains your elephant) in less than 30 days.
