Let’s end 2019 with a BANG, shall we?

What if I told you the stress of the holidays is the best thing for your brain right now? 

Triggering circumstances give you an inside view to your subconscious thoughts. Holidays are ripe with opportunity to become the creator of your thoughts – particularly in the context of situations or people who trigger us (hello holidays and judgy relatives!).

You already know my mission is to help you become the creator of your thoughts for epic success in your life & business! I truly want you to end 2019 strong! 

In this two-part series, I’m peeling back the curtain to give you a behind-the-scenes glimpse into what it’s like to be coached around the way you think. 

In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I take you inside a training session that I did inside my paid group to give you a taste of what it’s like to master your brain and break through to levels that you didn’t even think were possible.

The best part is that you’ll be able to apply this training to set your own goals for 2020!

If you’re ready to master your thoughts even in triggering circumstances and get absolute clarity on your goals so you can hit the ground running in the New Year, then you don’t want to miss this one.

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

  • “I want you to embrace this season as an opportunity to be the creator of your thoughts.”

Part of being the creator of your thoughts is understanding what you’re thinking to begin with. During the holiday season, there are abundant opportunities to lean in, listen to your thinking, and notice the emotions when you feel triggered. Listen in to learn more about the process in the brain that enables you to choose your thoughts so that they become automatic. [4:55]

  • “There are very few seasons that give us this beautiful opportunity to do the deep work of transformation. I can think of two: Christmastime and being an entrepreneur.”

The surest path to transformation is when you’re forced to sit in discomfort. And honestly, are there any situations more uncomfortable than holiday times and starting a business?! When you know in advance that you’ll be triggered, whether it’s a family dinner or a big important meeting, you can choose the thought ahead of time and use the situation to practice the thoughts you want to automate. [12:02]

  • “The reason for the goal is not to achieve the goal. The reason for the goal, in terms of your brain’s wiring, is to become the person that has already achieved that goal before you’ve achieved it.”

We’re not out here setting goals just so that we can check them off our to-do list. From a brain-based perspective, you need to know what the goal is so that you can work backward from that and ask, “Who do I need to BE in order to achieve this goal?” Once you figure that out, everything becomes easier. [45:10]

I would absolutely love it if you use this training to get super clear and super specific with your own goals for your life and business in 2020. Share and tag me in it, too! I’m dying to see who you’ll become and what you’ll create in the upcoming year.

Be sure to tune in to part 2 of this series next week, where I’ll take you through the process of getting crystal clear on your vision, understanding your underlying motivations, and training your brain to operate as if you’ve already achieved the success you want. 


Today I want to give a shoutout to one of my Epic Success podcast listeners who left a 5-star review titled “What you have been looking for”:

“There is a lot of good information out there, and then there is great information too. This is EPIC information… I had all but given up on finding a perfect blend of a grounded, faith-based message broadcast from a legitimate, neuroscience platform that resonated with me. Then I found Shannon… Prepare for the next level of thinking… your Epic Success awaits!”

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.
