Mindset is Everything: A Deep Dive Into the Mechanics of Your Powerful but Error-Prone Mind
Your success depends on your ability to eliminate what’s not important and move beyond anxieties and distractions. In other words: it depends on mindset mastery. At the end of this episode you’ll agree that mindset is everything.
Imagine being grateful for your rock-bottom. This week’s guest, David Bayer, feels this way about his rock-bottom. But this episode isn’t about David’s addictions, or even the gratitude he now feels when looking back on his personal rock bottom.
Although we touched on all of those and much more. So what’s this episode about?
It’s about mindset mastery…
David is one of the most powerful proponents and spokespeople for mindset mastery alive today. Why does mindset matter so much? Put simply: mindset is everything. Everything you want to achieve depends on your mindset.
If you’re reading this blog article or listening to our podcast, it means you’re the kind of person who is currently seeking greater levels of self-awareness. It means you’re looking for an edge so you can continue to be a high-performer. Or maybe you’re just looking to be a better man.
I salute you for being such an individual.
Because the world has enough automatons, running on autopilot, letting past programming run their lives. In fact, as David points out we are always running up against our limiting beliefs. These have traveled with you from the past like unwanted stowaways on Spaceship You.
But there is a way to overcome this past conditioning and build something new. While teachers throughout history have been describing it in their own way, David has created a powerful method for breaking the tethers of past conditioning.
It rests on the distinction between the two types of mindset we’re always in at every moment.
Beautiful vs. Suffering Mindset
You are always in one of these states. But you’re never in both.
According to David, achieving mindset mastery is largely a matter of becoming aware when you have crossed into suffering, then identifying the thoughts (limiting beliefs) that have catapulted you there.
If you can do that, you can then make the decision to believe a different set of thoughts.In that moment you re-launch yourself into a beautiful mindset. From there you can create powerfully.
But it’s a regular practice. We seem to believe that if we try something once and it doesn’t stick forever, it means we’ve failed. So we give up.
This is a choice you’ll have to make over and over again.
There is a lot more about mindset mastery in this episode…
More than I can cover in this summary.
But here are the brass tacks: if you’re looking for an edge, this podcast has the power to do it as much or more than any other. Learn from David, then live what he teaches.
Do it now, because life is fucking short and mindset is everything.
Here’s a rundown of some of the most powerful mindset mastery takeaways from this episode:
- The mindset to overcoming hurdles in life
- How to tackle self-limiting beliefs in relationship and/or intimacy
- How hitting “rock bottom” is a blessing in disguise
- About the definition of “true forgiveness”
- That there are only two states of being – the “beautiful” and “suffering”
- About the emotional compass of our daily operation
- The only real cause of suffering – what is real vs what man has introduced into the world
- Suffering is caused by the meaning we give our circumstances
- Our thoughts cause suffering
- The thinking that is causing suffering is not true
- Your body is designed to feel when thoughts aren’t aligned with reality
- Thus you experience suffering/anxiety/overwhelm (not aligned with reality)
- Beliefs are decisions
- For example: If you believe money is scarce, it means you’ve decided this
- A 2-step process to become aware of the things hiding in your blind spots
- How critically analyzing your thinking leads to liberation and the ability to change
- Since beliefs are decisions, you can choose to make new decisions and change beliefs
- The concept of “Neurosculpting”
- Whether “problems” really exist and how our perception creates our reality
