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 and I help online business owner’s breakthrough all the negative self-talk holding you back from your dreams so you can finally see the success you deserve! This is the weekly spot to break through everything that’s holding you back from the life you really want!
The program is the breakthrough step-by-step program to get through all the crap going on in your head that's holding you back from the life that you really want.
Let’s dive in!
I used to have so many limiting beliefs and I still have plenty of limiting beliefs. Everyone has limiting beliefs. And if you don't believe you have beliefs, that is a limiting belief in itself, right?!
I used to think things to myself like…
“When I succeed, I'll be happy.”
“I can't invest in myself because money is too tight.”
“Success is so much easier for other people!”
“Nobody understands my situation!”
“If I just obsess about my business, eventually it will become successful.”
“I don't want to set really big goals because I know I'm not going to be able to hit them.”
THOSE ARE LIMITING BELIEFS!!
I’m going to teach you in this episode…
HOW to BREAKTHROUGH 5 of the BIGGEST misconceptions about SUCCESS!
#1) The more time you spend on your business, the more successful you’ll be.
I see so many entrepreneurs doing this. Ask yourself: Do you do this, too? Do you refresh your social media constantly?! (And then say you don’t have time to build your biz…because you’re too busy scrolling…)
Does this obsessing actually help your business? No! You have to put in effort for sure to build your business, but it needs to be on the right things. Think about… Who wins? The person that spends 10 hours/day comparing others on social media/scrolling social media OR is it the busy mom that takes 45 mins out of her day to invite quality people?!
Americans spend nearly 5 hours/day on their phones… STOP OBSESSING AND DO SOMETHING ELSE!!
Play with your kids!
Take a walk outside!
Call your friends!
STOP obsessing and spend your time doing the RIGHT things to build your biz!!
(Who would want to join you if you aren’t enjoying your life/biz and the freedom that comes with it?!)
#2) Focus on ‘HOW’ more than your OWN mindset.
I see this all the time, focusing on ‘How am I ever going to do it?’ Why does it matter when you NEVER START?! You’re too busying thinking about HOW instead of taking one step at a time forward. If you're obsessed with doing it right, then you're never going to take action. And when you never take action, you're not going to get the results and you're not going to learn how to do it.
Does that make sense?
Ask yourself…Are you currently looking for ‘how to be successful’ first before you're mastering your mindset? When you’ve mastered your mindset and you've mastered the idea that you CAN do it, you build that self-confidence in yourself! THEN you're going to find a strategy.
WRITE THIS DOWN: When you know what you want and why you want it…the how will reveal itself!
The ‘how’ will show up for you because…
success typically comes from good judgment…
good judgment typically comes from experience…
experience typically comes from bad judgment (meaning you're going to have to be okay messing it up a few times)
If you want to be successful, you DON’T need to know HOW before you start! You just don’t!
#3) You think you have it harder than everyone else.
Is that actually true? Or are you just scared?
… but Brad, my situation is different; my situation is HARD! You don’t understand...
While I don't understand your particular situation, does this mindset serve you? Does it empower you?! OR does it serve you better to take responsibility for your life?
It does not matter if your situation is harder than someone else's situation. It doesn't matter. None of that matters because we'll never get you to where you want to go with that mindset. You can either get rid of that story and adopt a more empowering story OR you can keep that up and keep perpetuating more of the same thing.
My point is YOU CAN BLAME YOUR PAST OR YOU CAN THANK IT.
It’s your choice!
#4) When I have money, then I can X.
X can be investing in yourself, going to a conference or seminar. I'm curious, let's say I told you that I had a gold mine in my backyard worth millions and millions of dollars. And you can come to my backyard and dig any amount of gold that you can use in your own life. You can have as much as you want and you respond to me by saying, “But Brad, I don't have a shovel!”
I say back, “Well, go get a shovel! There is gold in my backyard and you can have as much as you want!!”
You respond to me by saying, “Do you know what they're charging for shovels?!”
Did you see the problem?!
That's how most people go about setting goals! They're worried about the cost of the shovel and they're not looking at the gold in the backyard.
Stop letting scarcity mindsets, keep you in scarcity! You will never get beyond scarcity. You have to start beyond scarcity. It requires a leap of faith. It's not something where you will earn your way to feeling financially abundant. That is not how money works!
That is not how the energy of money works. You start beyond it. You take a leap of faith.
#5) When I succeed…I'll be happy.
Once you hit that rank…
once you hit that number…
once you have that income level…
THEN you can be happy.
Question: How many people do you know that have a ton of money, but are just total douche bags?! They're miserable inside!
Success does not cause happiness, but I can tell you one thing…Happiness will lead you to success because when you're happy, you’re more connected with faith + trust + belief.
Do you take more risks or less risks when you're happy? MORE risks!
Do you take more action or less action when you're happy? MORE action!
Do you have more creativity or less creativity when you’re happy? MORE creativity!
MORE risks + MORE action + MORE creativity = SUCCESS!!
You're less, more creativity, more ideas, right? And that's what leads to success. Think about the biggest goal you've ever achieved outside of having a family, right?
We need to learn to master happiness and appreciation because appreciation is the master skill of business.
When you can learn to be grateful for your life (where it is RIGHT NOW) and love every part about it and learn to be happy and see the beauty and where you are, all of a sudden you solve the problems that are holding you back.
