Is Your Whole Life Wrong?!?

Is Your Whole Life Wrong?!?

Ivan had been brainwashed by some of the same powerful conditioned lies to which we are all subjected. One in particular was that it was important to make the acquisition of wealth and power the top priority in life. This is true despite his high level of intelligence. Real freedom resides in the intelligence that permits one to self-inquire.

I actually agree with the comment, "Don't get your hopes up." But for a contrary reason. This is one of the most profound and popular lies being propagated today - that there's a problem with not getting what you want. So to avoid the hurt that comes with that, lower your expectations and be less hopeful. Twisted.

Beginner coaches often delay the launch of their practices for a whole host of foolish reasons. Here's a list of the lies we are taught to believe that would have us hesitate in getting busy serving the people who need our gifts and contributions.

TOUGH TALKS: Ryan Lange – Ultramarathoner

Get ready to be mind-blown by this cat. He’s an Ultramarathoner (not just your typical run-of-the-mill normal 26.2 mile marathon runner - he’s an ULTRA one). That means he does things like runs 240 miles in 86 hours and change. He runs 50 miles without ever stopping! And he only started running three years ago. Because he was fat. And got tired of it. And he’s 20. Years. Old.

Game Face

One of the most common mistakes I witness people making in the pursuit of their dreams, is that they WAIT for great results before they permit themselves to feel that mastery or peak performance mentality. They wait for things to go well before they let themselves feel competent, confident, prepared, deserved, masterful, enthused, focused, and ready.

I'm pretty sure it was Einstein who said, "Imagination is the preview of coming attractions." And Buddha said, "The mind is the forerunner of all things." And one of my favorite mantras of all time, "The outer world is a reflection of the inner world."

TOUGH TALKS: Devon Bandison – Coach, Author & International Speaker

I like to think of Devon as the Queens, NY version of a hybrid of Yoda and Mark Twain. He is a lifelong student of the mind and a masterful storyteller. In our conversation today, he shares with us several powerful and accessible disciplines and practices that we can use day to day to strengthen the way we use our minds, create more joy and be more successful.

Love The Drama, Baby!

I so agree. And I love this image. It reminds me that without awareness, each of us is simply a puppet on a string, being directed by circumstances and external forces. If I summarize the entire process of Mental Toughness Training, or Heightening Consciousness (terms which I use synonymously), into one word, that word is AWARENESS.
