This week the guys from Brofessional Development cover Belief!
The discussion revolves around having belief in yourself and if it is real or just woo woo. We cover why it is important to have belief and how to transition from not believing in yourself to gaining that belief! This weeks influencer of the week is also Lewis Howes and we also have our tip of the week on “mindfulness” this week!
“Every man is what he is because of the dominating thoughts he permits to occupy his mind” – Napolean Hill
“Your reality is a reflection of your strongest beliefs”
Belief Potential Action Results
- Most people have a fixed belief of how much potential they have
- Most people BELIEVE they have very little POTENTIAL
- When you BELIEVE you have very little POTENTIAL, how much ACTION do you take?
- When you combine little POTENTIAL with little ACTION what do you get? Little RESULTS
- Then you start to confirm that belief and say “see, I told you I couldn’t do it.”
START WITH BELIEF in the RESULTS
- Write out affirmations and say them every day
- Visualize with as much clarity as possible you are going to do it
- CONDITION your brain to believe it is going to happen
- YOU HAVE TO PREPARE YOURSELF TO BE READY TO RECEIVE IT
Nobody is ready for a thing until he believes he can acquire it
Open-mindedness is an ABSOLUTE MUST
- Growth Mindset = People believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work
- Fixed Mindset = people believe their basic abilities are already set (i.e. I’m terrible with money, I can’t get into shape I have terrible genes, or people who think they can’t make money)
YOUR MIND HAS A BIGGER EFFECT ON YOUR PERFORMANCE THAN ANYTHING
Napolean Hill calls Faith (what we take as belief) a state of mind that can be induced by affirmation or repeated instructions of the subconscious mind.
Emily Coue – basically the OG of positive psychology for self development
- a form of self-hypnosis where you visualize your goal and then back it by the emotions and repetition
- it allows you to break through to your own subconscious mind to form that belief
- Conscious mind acts as a defender to all of the different stimulations in the world
- Average person is exposed to 5,000 ads per day
- Our conscious mind blocks out 99.9% of those
IT CAN BE USED FOR GOOD OR BAD
When Rodger Bannister became the first person ever to run a 4-minute mile, within two years 37 other people did it, when nobody in history had ever done it.
There was a study done by criminologists on how people could do something that they knew was inherently wrong. They found that when these people first come into contact with crime, they don’t approve. Then when they’re in it a bit longer, they get to the point where they tolerate it, and after a while they finally embrace it and become influenced by it.
