Here’s the truth: training your brain makes strategies effective and action efficient.

You can have all the strategies and plans, but if your thinking is on autopilot, you’re going to be working against yourself.

Today’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast is special because, not only is it Part 2 of our Best of Epic Success series, my guests bring a brilliant combination of mindset shifts, strategies, and action plans!

Last week on the Epic Success Podcast, we began a 2-part power packed series sharing the most popular interviews on the podcast. You heard from Pat Flynn, Michael Hyatt, Lori Harder, Jenna Kutcher, and me. (If you didn’t catch last week’s episode, make sure to listen to it now!

This week on Part 2 you’ll hear nuggets of wisdom from Hal Elrod, Amy Porterfield, James Wedmore, Christina Jandali, and Dana Malstaff.

Get ready… it packs a punch!

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

  • “Self-doubt is like a seed that’s planted in our consciousness. When we give it our attention, we water it and it expands”

Hal Elrod, author of the Miracle Equation, shares a powerful mantra to personalize and repeat to replace the fear that sneaks in with faith instead.

The goal is who you will become in the pursuit of and commitment to the goal. [9:21]
