2020 has been a year unlike any other year. 

And we collectively felt it… on a global level.

When I say 2020, what thoughts pop in your head?

What emotions come rushing in?

For a lot of people, the thoughts and emotions aren’t positive.

Things like dread, overwhelm, disappointment…

It’s real and it’s genuine and it happens.

In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk about how emotions are processed in the brain and how you have the power to create your desired state of being!

Once you learn how the emotions you feel play out as a result of your brain’s wiring, you are able to condition your brain to your advantage… instead of your brain working you. 

If you’re ready to start creating your thoughts and emotions in the brain so that you can have the life you’ve been dreaming of, then turn up the volume and dive in!

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

  • We should be evaluating every area of our lives on a quarterly basis.

As entrepreneurs, we are very motivated individuals. We understand the importance of regularly setting goals and evaluating how things are going in different areas of our businesses – many of us already do this naturally. But what about the other areas of our lives? Are we being intentional about making goals for our relationships, our health, our hobbies or downtime? I know for me, it’s easy to put those things on the back burner and forget about them. What about you? How aware are you of the other (just as important) areas of your life? [2:06]

  • We have to show our brain that what we want is safe.

Your brain will automate the thoughts that are repeated over time, and those thoughts will become beliefs. Your brain will resist any thought or idea that does not align with that automated belief… even if it is a good, positive, life-changing thought or idea. If there is something that you want, you have to train your brain and show it that it’s safe. When you do that, your brain will work for you instead of against you. [4:40]

  • You can choose your state of being.

Your thoughts create your emotions. And when you are aware of how your brain works, you will be able to train it to think (and therefore feel) the things you choose… The things you want! For me, I want my state of being to be joy and peace, and because I want that, I am constantly training my brain and showing myself that those things are safe. I am automating joy and peace in my life. What do you want to automate? What state of being do you want to live out of? [8:15]

You can end this year with strength and intention by deciding how you want to feel in advance, creating your emotions and responding with intention. You can create the state of being you’ve always dreamed of having.

As 2020 comes to a close, I know you’re ready to be the creator of your thoughts and train your brain to your advantage… and I’m here to help you do it!

Today I want to give a shoutout to one of my Epic Success Podcast listeners who left a 5-star review titled “Taking My Thoughts Captive & Changin…”:

And we take every thought captive to make it obey Christ.’ ~2 Corinthians 10:5 (NET)
Quite honestly, I never realized what kinds of thoughts were buried in my subconscious and running my life. Dr Shannon is giving me the tools to really see the thoughts that are out of alignment with the truth, take them captive; get rid of them – replacing them with new thoughts that are obedient to Christ. The brain science with which she imparts her wisdom really priveds concrete steps to make lasting changes in my thinking. The tools are helping me propel my life forward to becoming the person God already sees in me, so that I can accomplish the things prepared in advance for me to do.

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.
