    How To Break Through Self Sabotage | Tom Bilyeu AMA (Replay)

    enSeptember 21, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • Believing in your ability to learn and growBelieving in brain plasticity can help overcome self-sabotage and achieve goals, empowering us to put in effort and break through patterns, no coach required

      Believing in your ability to learn and grow, despite self-doubt or limiting beliefs, can help you overcome self-sabotage and achieve your goals. The speaker, Tom, shares his personal experience of struggling with this issue and how his belief in brain plasticity was a game-changer for him. He encourages us to adopt this mindset and pour ourselves into our projects, knowing that as humans, we are designed to adapt and improve. This belief can be empowering and help us put in the necessary energy and effort to break through self-sabotage patterns. While a coach can be helpful, the speaker suggests that it's not a requirement and that this mindset shift can be achieved through personal research and self-belief.

    • Believe in Your Capacity for GrowthDespite self-doubt or feeling overwhelmed, focus on learning and improving skills, trusting growth will come with time and dedication, and consider good nutrition and vitamin supplements for energy.

      No matter how difficult a task may seem or how much self-doubt you may experience, you have the capacity for radical transformation and growth. When faced with self-doubt or feeling overwhelmed, instead of quitting or worrying about being good enough, focus on learning and improving your skills. Keep going, enjoy the process, and trust that with time and dedication, opportunities will present themselves. Additionally, maintaining good nutrition and potentially considering vitamin supplements can help sustain the energy needed for consistent progress.

    • Balanced diet, passion, and caffeine can boost energyA balanced diet is crucial for energy, but passion and enthusiasm, along with caffeine and exercise, can also help increase energy levels during conversations, find a balance in eye contact to make the speaker feel comfortable while maintaining focus.

      A balanced and nutritious diet is essential for energy levels, but it may not be the only factor. Passion and enthusiasm for what you're doing can significantly impact your energy and motivation. Additionally, in certain situations, caffeine and exercise can also help boost energy levels. Regarding eye contact during conversations, it's essential to find a balance and make the person speaking feel comfortable while maintaining focus. In interviews, maintaining eye contact can help convey engagement and attentiveness. However, in everyday conversations, breaking eye contact occasionally can help make the person speaking feel more comfortable.

    • Being committed and clear on goalsCommitment to goals and self-sacrifice leads to success. Build connection through eye contact, but it's not the only factor. Prioritize self-care, set boundaries, and use technology for productivity and health.

      Having clear goals and a strong sense of identity are crucial for achieving success. The speaker emphasizes the importance of being fully committed and willing to make sacrifices to reach your goals. Eye contact during speaking can be important for building connection, but it's not the only factor. For those struggling with productivity, the speaker suggests setting clear boundaries and prioritizing self-care while also being disciplined and focused. Utilizing technology can also help in making informed decisions for personal health and peak performance.

    • Explore resources for health, business growth, data protection, and skill developmentInvest in tools like Lumen, Shopify, DeleteMe, and Skillshare for improved health, business growth, data protection, and skill development. Don't forget the power of positive thinking and manifestation.

      There are several tools and resources available to help individuals improve their health, grow their businesses, protect their personal data, and develop new skills. Lumen is a handheld device that measures metabolism and provides personalized guidance for improving metabolic flexibility. Shopify is a global commerce platform that helps businesses grow at every stage. DeleteMe helps individuals take control of their personal data and remove it from data brokers and people search sites. Skillshare is an online learning community with over 25,000 classes in various subjects to help individuals learn new skills and develop new passions. It's important to invest in these resources to stay ahead in today's competitive world and continuously learn and improve. Additionally, there's a growing trend around manifestation and the law of attraction, which encourages individuals to believe in the universe's support and harness the power of positive thinking to achieve their goals. As a trained psychologist, I find this concept intriguing and worth exploring further.

    • Consistent action is key to success and mental healthTaking massive action consistently over a long period is crucial for developing skills, adding value, and improving mental health. While positive thinking helps, it's not enough. Techniques like the 54321 model can aid in getting started, but mental health struggles may require professional help and a holistic approach.

      While positive thinking is important, it's not enough to achieve success or improve mental health. The speaker emphasizes that taking massive action consistently over a long period of time is crucial to developing valuable skills and adding value to others' lives. Manifestation and the universe's supposed support are partly true but not the sole determinants of success. Exercise and diet are essential for mental health, and techniques like the 54321 model from Mel Robbins can help with getting out of bed and starting the day. However, mental health struggles like depression and anxiety often require more than just techniques; they may necessitate professional help and a holistic approach to well-being. Ultimately, the human animal's capacity for adaptation and the importance of taking action cannot be overstated.

    • Focus on physical health for mental well-beingEat whole foods, especially greens and healthy fats. Test diets individually, exercise regularly, prioritize gut health, and reward progress.

      Managing anxiety and depression involves a multi-faceted approach. It's essential to focus on physical health by eating whole foods, especially green leafy vegetables and healthy fats, and avoiding carbohydrates that may negatively affect your body and mood. Individualized testing and experimentation with different diets are crucial to finding what works best for you. Additionally, regular exercise is vital for optimizing brain health and improving mood. Mental health also depends on gut health, so focusing on gut health through experimentation is crucial. Lastly, rewarding yourself for sticking to healthy habits and setting achievable goals can help improve self-esteem and motivation. Remember, everyone's journey is unique, and it's essential to find what works best for you.

    • Starting small for self-improvementSmall consistent actions lead to significant improvements in mood and self-credibility. Try cold showers or comedy for quick boosts, delve deeper into brain science for long-term growth.

      Improving oneself and building self-credibility through consistent actions, even if small, can lead to significant positive changes in mood and overall well-being. The speaker shares a personal experience of resisting the temptation to eat jicama despite no one else knowing, emphasizing the importance of self-satisfaction and self-respect. He suggests starting with small steps such as cold showers or watching comedies to boost mood and confidence. Additionally, the speaker recommends delving deeper into the understanding of the brain through resources like Doctor Daniel Amen, vS Ramachandran, and David Eagleman, who have had a profound impact on the speaker's own knowledge and growth in this area. Ultimately, the journey to self-improvement and understanding the brain is a process that requires consistency and dedication.

    • Understanding human behavior for weight lossRecognizing irrational behavior can help manage binge eating and maintain a clean diet, acknowledging desires and making conscious decisions can lead to successful weight loss.

      Understanding human behavior and the brain can help us overcome challenges, such as weight loss. Dan Ariely's book "Predictably Irrational" sheds light on the irrationality of human behavior and how recognizing it can be powerful. The speaker shares his personal experience with binge eating and suggests setting up a "release valve" for indulgences, while maintaining a clean diet most of the time. It's important to remember that every food choice has a reaction on the body, and giving in to binge eating only causes more damage. Instead, acknowledge the desire and make a conscious decision to get back on track.

    • Setting clear boundaries for personal goalsUsing strong desire and identity to stay committed to goals despite challenges, and the importance of clear boundaries in achieving success

      Having clear boundaries, or "bright lines," can help individuals stay committed to their goals, even during moments of weakness. The speaker in this discussion emphasizes the importance of desiring the end result and using identity as motivation to stick to these boundaries. He shares his personal experience of wanting to complete a 5-day fast to achieve longevity and feeling good about himself when he succeeds. Even when faced with challenges, such as low blood sugar levels, he stays committed to his goal because of his strong desire and identity. The use of bright lines and a clear sense of self can help individuals push through difficult moments and feel a great sense of accomplishment when they reach their goals.

    • Embrace Challenges and Build StrengthDoing hard things can build strength and confidence, contributing to a community by subscribing, sharing, rating, and reviewing helps it reach more people, and taking on challenges together as a community can be inspiring and supportive.

      Doing hard things can make you feel stronger. This theme was discussed in today's podcast, and it's a common struggle for many people. By pushing yourself to do difficult tasks, you can build up your strength and confidence. Additionally, the podcast host asked listeners to subscribe, share, rate, and review the podcast to help it reach a wider audience. This community-building effort is a crucial part of the podcast's mission to deliver value to as many people as possible. So, if you're looking for inspiration to tackle challenges and make a positive impact, give this podcast a listen and consider contributing to the community by subscribing, sharing, and leaving a review. Remember, every little bit helps in building a larger and more supportive community. Overall, the podcast emphasizes the importance of taking on challenges, growing stronger, and coming together as a community to support one another. So, be legendary, take care, and keep pushing yourself to be your best!

    Reality Is An Illusion: Exit the Matrix and Design Your Dream Life! | Donald Hoffman (Replay)

    Reality Is An Illusion: Exit the Matrix and Design Your Dream Life! | Donald Hoffman (Replay)
    It’s pretty normal that you think of reality being the world around us, the tangible things you see and interact with. You probably even include and make space for how your emotions influence perception and tie that into what creates your reality. Donald Hoffman is joining Tom for another mind-bending episode to challenge if we’re actually living in a false reality.
