The decision to live life at a high level comes with a range of emotions. I can’t lie y’all… the past couple of days haven’t been kind to me, and I even felt guilt for this. As I stumbled across Wayne Dyer’s book, "Your Erroneous Zones: Step-by-Step Advice for Escaping the Trap of Negative Thinking and Taking Control of Your Life" and his concept of “The tyranny of the should”, all feelings of frustrations and overwhelm were lifted. No false expectations over here man. You must remind yourself that the process is all worth it at the end of the day.

There’s nothing wrong with praising motivational posts with inspiring quotes. What you must NOT do, however, is do the talking without the living… Don’t share posts to share ‘em- share posts to LIVE that lifestyle. Capeesh?

Your beliefs will determine the way you think, which will determine the way you act. Today’s episode is an exercise I use with my clients, involving the “B.E.A.R.” mentality.

(7:21) Changing your beliefs, step 3: What would you have to believe, in order to feel this way?

(8:30) Changing your beliefs, step 4: What is the result that you REALLY want?

(8:45) Changing your beliefs, step 5: How would this result make you feel?

(9:13) Changing your beliefs, step 6: What would you have to believe, in order to feel THIS way?

(9:45) Changing your beliefs, step 7: VISUALIZE! What would it look like (in detail), if you really believed these things?

(10:39) Our conscious mind decides; the subconscious mind carries out the orders.

(11:53) If I were you, I'd do this...

Elon Musk once said, “You are paid in direct proportion to the size and difficulty to the problems that you solve”. In other words, the situation that you are currently in, is a pure product of your work ethic. Your effort will reflect your success. Are you doing what your dreams demand you to do? The next time you see a Tesla on the highway, refer back to this quote.
