Today we’re going to talk about mindset. It’s something that you can’t see. You can’t measure it. It is something that is critically important. Many people do not place a premium on it because mindset is one of those soft skills. It’s a challenge to have the right mindset.
It’s very hard for people to understand the importance of mindset. I’m going to give you a little game. You know your passwords and your screen names? Many of you have these unique and strange screen names, right? Here’s a little secret. The screen name is part of your id.
Now hold on and stay with me. So, you have this jacked-up screen name that you think is cute. Maybe you think it is trendy or edgy. Then you have a password too. All of those things are very necessary and contribute to who you think you are. If you have jacked up screen names or passwords, that is your id speaking.
It’s not saying anything nice. It’s saying, I’m less than a person. I’m just out here doing what I need to be doing. It’s sad because mentally you’re holding yourself back. Let’s say you have a screen name like johnaintshit, right. You get a lot of giggles, right? Let’s say Iaintshit is your password.
Every time you look at that screen name or password, you reinforce the negative image of who you are. I know, it’s deep, right? It seems to have little consequence. If this goes unchecked, you could create a password and screen name that become your future.
If you’re on Facebook, how many times have you checked your Facebook app today? It could be 30 times, 40 times or 50 times. I’ll admit, before I took the app off my phone, I checked my Facebook app 312 times one day. I counted. Yes, I’m serious. That’s why I took it off. That’s why I have limited my Facebook time, because it is harmful.
Now, let’s discuss the id. If you are not programming the id, something else is programming the id. SO, you can actively program yourself or you can be programmed. One of the things that was happening with me was I was being programmed. I was checking my Facebook page. I was checking the app. I would sit there and scroll through it and the next thing I knew an hour or two would go by. They were programming me.
Now what does this have to do with you having a jacked-up screen name? Everything. Because one of the reasons you’re going with a silly screen name is because you’re trying to get attention. When you have a jacked-up and negative screen name, you have programmed yourself for bullshit and fuckery. This sets the stage for now, you can really be programmed.
Now, when we get into conversations about the flag, kneeling and black lives matter, you’re seeing all this programming take root. Because here’s the thing. When Donald Trump said the owners should fire these players, he knew they couldn’t be fired because the players have contracts. They can’t be fired.
Once the programming has taken place, truth be damned. Truth is of no consequence. He can’t be bothered by that.
For those of you who feel we’re going to go to war with Korea, it’s not going to happen. It’s not. When Nixon was being set up for impeachment, the military brass said. “Look, if you get an order from the President, check with me first before you launch. Those protocols are in place now and nothing is going to happen.
What’s going to happen is, he’s going to keep pushing. He knows what appeals to his base. They are programmed. Many people who are part of the Trump base are uneducated. When I say uneducated, I mean in the truest sense of the word.
They believe in God and they believe in the Bible. They’re very easy to manipulate because of the programming that has taken place. It’s very easy to create drama with them. It is very easy for Trump and people like him to manipulate these people.
Here’s the thing. Trump isn’t the only one using these people. Both sides are using these people. The Republicans are using these people. The Democrats are using these people. All kinds of people are using them.
One of the things that really causes a lot of problems, is when you have so many people existing in their primal state, who are easily programmed. They think they are forming opinions of their own. They are dangerous. The danger is since these people think they formed these opinions of their own free will, they will fight you tooth and nail because of the programming. If you try and argue with these people, you’re wasting your time and breathe.
One of the reasons I have been successful is because of my mindset. Development of your mindset will come in advance of the success. It’s not going to come at the same time. In my case, the success came almost three years after I started developing my mind.
I read the book, The Power of the Subconscious Mind which has been a big influence on me and the things that I teach. I learned that you can’t have negative thoughts. This is why the disparaging screen names are really dangerous. This is why you don’t want to have those things.
If you have these types of screen names, you need to change them immediately. Every time you login or see these things, it reinforces the negative programming you’ve instilled in your mind. I can’t stress how important this is.
Let’s go back to 1997. I came across Earl Nightingale’s book, Lead the Field. I also came across The Power of your Subconscious Mind by Dr. Joseph Murray. I read them and played around with them a little bit. At the time, I was not performing because I had a shitty mindset. As I was wrestling with this, I started to see change.
It wasn’t fast change. It was almost imperceptible like the movement of the hands of a clock. Then, as I looked back over the previous three years later in 1999, I saw all the changes I made. It didn’t feel like I was changing, but I was changing every day.
What you put in your mind is what you are going to get in your life. My success all started because of the mindset changes that started in 1997. You have to get rid of any negative screen names and other input and start to fill your mind with positive stuff. You need to be mindful of what you consume mentally.
