Welcome to The Path To Mindset Mastery! My name is Brad Bizjack! I’m a mindset strategist and coach, inspirational speaker, and creator of Appreciation Academy. I help people to elevate their relationships, career, and mindset to the next level.
Most people start their day in reactivity - checking emails, Instagram, Facebook or Tiktok listening to or reading the news and as a result they flood their minds with things that aren’t priming them to feel alive.
Browsing Instagram will likely leave you comparing yourself to other people or, the news might instil feelings like fear and uncertainty, and your inbox will draw your focus to other people’s agendas and priorities.
You are always being primed. Take this example from Uncle Tony Robbins:
In a 2008 study conducted by Yale psychologists, one researcher casually asked the participant to hold their coffee in the elevator on their way to the lab. The team member would then write down some information about the participant before asking for their coffee back. Each participant held the cup of coffee for between 10 and 25 seconds. For half of the participants, the coffee was hot, while the other half held cold cups of coffee. That’s the only difference between the two groups of participants. Here’s where it gets interesting. In the lab, all participants read the same brief description of a random individual and rated the individual’s personality using a questionnaire. Participants who held hot coffee rated the person as happier, better-natured, more generous and social. Participants who held the cold cup were more likely to say the person was unhappy, irritable, and selfish. Remember, there was absolutely no difference between the profiles that both groups read. But how they reacted to the descriptions was significantly different. The strangest part? They had no idea they’d been primed.
Priming all happens completely within your subconscious, but you can learn how to use priming to your advantage. So why not proactively program yourself so that you start each day feeling alive?
What is the purpose of a morning routine?
“To let go of perfection?” you may ask! Why is perfection something we need to let go of? Perfect is the lowest standard you can give yourself since it is impossible to achieve. It stops you starting projects or activities due to fears of not being able to complete them at an unattainably high standard. We must allow ourselves to fail to learn and thrive and perfectionists don’t allow for failure - they take mistakes personally and often experience self doubt. When perfectionists do meet their own expectations - they bounce from peak to peak, chasing the next big thing and never fully experiencing joy, accomplishment or fulfilment.
How do we identify what to prioritize in a morning routine?
4 Questions to ask yourself
The 6 C’s of a Morning Routine
Program your subconscious mind and create a sense of calm and clarity in your morning. Think: visualisation, appreciation or meditation.
Select the material you consume in the morning and think about the way it can positively or negatively prime your day. Think: Online course/ learning, positive affirmations, Morning Mindset Mastery or Appreciation Academy!
When you move your body differently, a chemical change happens in your brain! It releases endorphins and gets rid of chemicals that make us feel stressed and anxious. Think: Stretching, yoga, running, HIIT workouts.
Most people start their day writing out their To-do lists, focusing on what is urgent, most demanded and often choosing the easiest tasks so they can cross them off their lists. They are then consumed by a sense of guilt that they didn’t eat the frog and complete the most important tasks for that day. When creating your list, ask yourself, “What is the result or outcome I need today?”
If I were to ask you, “What is the potential of Human beings?” You might answer “unlimited,” but why don’t we as individuals meet that potential? It is down to our limiting beliefs about ourselves - they lower the level of potential we have.
Lower potential = less action = lower outcomes = limiting beliefs get stronger.
The opposite of this is also true;
Higher potential = higher action = higher outcomes = positive beliefs get stronger.
You need to break the cycle by breaking down your limiting beliefs, you can do this through affirmations and incantations.
Tip: Affirmations should be done when you are in a high energy state not a low energy state. Why?
You’ll probably know the answer to the first question but not the second. Whilst this is a negative example, it proves the point that due to having an emotional link to that day, you remember where you were. This works the same for affirmations and your emotional state.
Incantation is when you take an affirmation and you say it so loud and with so much emotional intensity that your whole body and nervous system uses it and remembers it. You trick your body into believing it is true.
Celebrate what you have achieved. Most people focus on what they didn’t do, because they know they still need to get it done. Turn this habit on it’s head and celebrate what you did accomplish, feel a sense of accomplishment which will in turn encourage you to get through tomorrow’s important tasks. This can be done in the morning or evening.
Success = Results of service. The Law of Income states that compensation is directly proportional to the number of lives you touch and how well you touch them.
Celebrate who you are role-model this to your spouse/partner/team/children. You can’t control the length of your life but you can control its depth and meaning.
I hope these tips and directions will help you establish a morning routine with purpose and which serves you to be the best version of yourself and bring you alive! Remember your routine can be 5 mins, it can be 2 hours, but mindsets or perfections and checklists must go!
