Have you ever been stretched too thin and overwhelmed? Me too! When I first started as an entrepreneur there was never enough of me to go around. 

I wanted to do it all – run my business, grow my non-profit, care for my household, and be a mother – but I felt like I’d have to give something up. 

What I didn’t know was that my brain was working against me… instead of having my brain work for me. 

This week is the ninth week in our podcast series: The Brain Science of Success

In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk about the three key components that science teaches us about success in the brain. 

Knowing how your brain works is key to understanding how you’re wired, and if you don’t, you are at risk of working against your brain – instead of having your brain work for you and for your advantage. 

I can’t wait to dive into the 3 key components that will help you become the creator of your thoughts so you can create the life you’ve always dreamed of having. 

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

  • Your brain isn’t naturally wired to bring you success

Our brain’s job is not to bring us big success or uplevel our business. Your brain’s job is to keep us alive in a safe and familiar state. So when you want something really big or really different, your brain will see that as a threat and keep you from achieving your dreams. [3:59]

  • 90% of what you do is automated in your brain.

Your brain will automate the thoughts you tell yourself over time. The majority of these automated subconscious thoughts and beliefs are automated as a young child. And 90% of the actions you take are being operated out of that automation. That’s why it feels like your brain is working against you. Good news is… You can rewire your brain and automate the thoughts you want… to the thoughts that serve you. [8:50]

  • You have to slow down so you can speed up.

I see a lot of entrepreneurs trying to hustle to make things happen. The go, go, go and struggle to accomplish anything. It’s like having your foot on the gas pedal and brake pedal at the same time – you get nowhere and just go in circles. You have to slow down to speed up. Slow down, become aware of your thoughts, and rewire the old automated thoughts.  [18:33]

You can be the creator of your thoughts and create the life you’ve always dreamed of having and you can start right here, right now!
