As much as you’re wanting to become the creator of your thoughts and life, do you ever feel like decisions are something you don’t always have control over?

Do you feel you just react to things that happen and then quickly decide based on your emotions at that time?

Especially as an entrepreneur, it can feel like you’re dodging one thing after the other.

Truth is, those decisions that you’re making are created from thoughts, and you have 100% control over your thoughts. All your decisions create your reality. 

This week on the Epic Success Podcast, I want to empower you to take control of your decisions by taking control of your thoughts. There is magic when you decide what you no longer want to believe, then take actionable steps to start building new neural-pathways so that you can believe the beliefs you want in your life.

If you’re ready to shift from excuses to empowering decisions and actions, buckle up and listen in!

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

  • “You are always deciding to advocate for either your limiting beliefs or future self.

You are always advocating for the decision that will either take you to where you want to be or keep you held back. You’re always deciding how you perceive and interpret success, failure, love, money – everything. The interpretation that you give it is a decision. [2:46]

  • “Deciding in advance gives your brain what it needs in order to help you continue to make that decision become reality.

You’ve got to decide in advance how you’re going to fail, how you’re going to show up, how you’re going to navigate challenges. Why? Because if you want a life you’ve never had before, you have to do things you’ve never done before. If you really want that new reality to stick, you’ve got to start by building neural-networks of success in your brain. [6:11]

  • “How you perceive every good and not so good thing in your life – the interpretation you give it, is a decision.

The key to building neural-networks for success in your brain is to start to understand that everything is an interpretation and that you get to decide. You can then interpret things through the filter that you want to versus just the filter that’s been there since childhood. [7:11]

The only thing holding you back is the story you’re deciding to believe that is not serving you anymore. It’s time to go out and decide today what it is you really want and take one action towards it. 

I really want to hear what you’ve decided to do differently and what one action you will take now towards that decision. Training your brain towards it now and taking even one step towards what you want will create the momentum then the success you want.
