    Unlocking Success: How a Mindset Shift to ‘Living in the Gain vs. The Gap’ Can Transform Your Life

    Unlocking Success: How a Mindset Shift to ‘Living in the Gain vs. The Gap’ Can Transform Your Life

    In this week’s episode of the Dethroning Your Inner Critic podcast, Joanna is speaking about living in the game versus living in the gap, a concept that will revolutionize the way that you think about your success, your happiness, and your fulfillment.

    So tune in to this enlightening episode and learn what actions you need to take and not be caught in a trap where your restless, perfectionist, and inadequate inner critics govern every facet of your life, and start designing your dream life by becoming an energetic match from the inside.

     

    Here are this week's reflection questions: 

    • Are you living in the gap, where you are susceptible to being constantly triggered, and whether you feel you're meeting your goals or triggered by other people's actions or their expectations, or what you think they think of you?

     

    • Are you stuck in your survival mechanism, where you’re constantly in this state of fight-flight-freeze, waiting for that shoe to drop, being anxious, and needing your external circumstances to look a particular way so you can feel at peace?

     

    • Do you feel like you are trying to swim to get to the horizon that no matter how fast you swim or how far or how long you are swimming, you're not getting there? And that any progress you make feels like a letdown because it's just never enough.

    Anger - Part 1 - Threshold of Brilliance - Episode 19

    Anger - Part 1 - Threshold of Brilliance - Episode 19

    Anger – Part 1 - Threshold of Brilliance – Episode 19 – November 6, 2023

    When we grow up with a volatile parent, we tend to blame our own volatility on them. At some point, however we must realize that WE are making that choice, and can’t blame THEM anymore.

    Anger is almost always a secondary emotion! Typically, we experience a primary emotion, like fear, loss, disappointment, feeling overwhelmed, inadequacy, or sadness, first. Because these emotions create feelings of vulnerability and loss of control, they can trigger us. To get a lasting handle on our anger, we need to look at the root cause.

    Come join us as we explore a little more about this topic that many times gets a bad rap and is not always the cause.

    1.    What is anger?

    2.    What causes anger?

    ·       Unresolved childhood trauma.

    ·       Repressed or unmet needs.

    ·       Unrealistic expectations from people/situation.

    ·       Coping unhealthily with stress, anxiety, etc.

    ·       Experiences of neglect, abuse, or aggressive behavior.

    3.    How can we identify the root cause of our own anger?

    4.    Why is anger so pervasive for some and others seem to have it under control?

    5.    What are some causes of prolonged anger?

    6.    What are some ways to control anger in the moment? Or short-circuiting it in the long rund

    7.    What are some of the key issues of emotional health?

     

    SHOW NOTES:

    What is anger?

    1.    A full frontal assault on your amygdala – Brad

    a.    Fear and loss or something that happened in my past

    b.    Unmet expectations about my own thinking or behavior

    c.    A signal that something important to me was at risk

    2.    Unmet expectations or loss of control tend to be the immediate triggers – John

    a.    Especially when I try to redirect and regain control of expected behaviors, and things go even further off the rails

    3.    Control is a fallacy. Nobody has control, has ever had control, or ever will have control. The universe does what it does and we can’t control it. It’s part of being human. We can only control what we do with it when we feel the loss of control.

    4.    A response to not having control over the world we think we should have.

    5.    Right now it seems like much of the world is angry. People see the way the world is, think it should be different, and get angry when they can’t make the rest of the world behave the way they think it should be.

     

    What causes anger?

    I suggest that people draw two circles that overlap. One is the things that are important to you. The other is the things that you can control. - Brad

    When tend to ‘react’ in the moment, rather than ‘respond’. A response indicates you’ve given it some thought. Generally, anger comes out without you putting in much thought at all. – Brad

    Unresolved childhood trauma can trigger us today, unless we have recognized them and choose to diminish them – Brad

    Repressed needs we think we have, that we think are not being met – Brad

    One of the causes for stress, and a trigger for anger, are unrealistic expectations – Brad

    Children are born thinking the world is simply an extension of themselves. As they grow, and realize the world is separate, they often struggle with the loss of control they experience. A childhood trauma, at age 6, left me feeling that there was no part of my world, even internally, that I had control over. It left me feeling weak, vulnerable, and fearful. It also too me 50 years time, and 30 years of self-discovery, therapy and work for start recovering from the experience. – John

    The world doesn’t care what about what I expect, want or need, the world simply does what the world does. The fact that I put expectations is something I have to realize sets me up for anger. – John 

    In Budism, they recognize that want, need and desire cause pain. Ignorance is not seeing the world as it really is.

    How can we identify the root cause of our own anger?

    Pay attention to what triggers you? – Brad

    ·      We can feel frustration starting to build up, recognize that and choose a different way to react.

    ·      I can only control my attitude and my actions, that’s it.

    Taking three diaphragmic breathes can help you regain control over your attitude and actions in the moment when you feel yourself getting triggered – Brad

    Practicing mindfulness is another way of learning to regain control. A SIMPLE TRICK is, when you are feeling triggered, use the fingertips of one hand to rub the inside of the palm on your other hand. This forces you to think about that sensation vs thinking about reacting to your triggers in the moment. – Brad

    THE SERENTIY PRAYER

    God grant me the courage to accept

       the things I cannot change,

    The strength to change the things I can,

    And the wisdom to know the difference.

    If I get mad a you, I’m giving you control over my emotions and thoughts, and I don’t want to give control of me to someone else, who probably doesn’t even know you’ve given them control. – John

    When Life Isn't What We Expected

    When Life Isn't What We Expected

    In the last episode, we talked about how we respond to the Lord when He hasn't done what we expected Him to do. In episode 6, we're talking about finding God faithful when our life isn't what we expected. Specifically, what do we do when we can't understand what God is doing. What is the difference between understanding God and truly trusting Him? Is it possible that we are demanding answers from God where He is instead offering us the peace of His presence?

    Experts, Expectations and Getting What You Want

    Experts, Expectations and Getting What You Want

    Do you have high expectations and end up disappointed when things don't go your way? Are you disillusioned by the "experts" who aren't really helping you and don't really have it all together? 

    We all have expectations - yet a simple reframing of what we hold onto and how we communicate it can make a drastic shift in your joy and accomplishment. 

    What do you expect? Start with no expectation. Listen in. And then tell me what you've learned. 

    How Your Expectations Can Change Your Life

    How Your Expectations Can Change Your Life

    During World War II, Henry Beecher, an anesthesiologist serving in the U.S. Army, noticed that 32% of the soldiers he treated for horrific battle wounds felt no pain. A further 44% experienced only slight or mild discomfort, despite the fact they had shrapnel embedded in their bodies. Beecher hypothesized that the euphoria of surviving battle resulted in the release of a natural painkiller. When morphine was running low in Europe, Beecher thought he could harness the mind’s seeming ability to produce natural painkillers in a different way by injecting soldiers who were about to undergo surgery with a simple saline solution, while telling the soldiers they were receiving morphine. About 90% of these patients underwent the surgery with little or no pain.

    Beecher’s field-expedient placebo treatments would go on to open up decades of research into the power of our expectations. On today’s show, my guest will walk us through that fascinating research, and how the connection between the body and the mind is a lot stronger and wilder than we know.

    His name is David Robson and he’s an award-winning science writer and the author of The Expectation Effect: How Your Mindset Can Change Your World. David and I begin our conversation with how and why the brain operates as a prediction machine, and how the expectations it generates can shape the reality we experience. We then discuss how even when someone’s pain or condition is very real, the placebo effect can have an equally real effect on their physiology — even when people know they’re taking a placebo. We also get into the “nocebo effect,” where your expectation that a drug will have negative side effects, in fact produces those side effects. From there we turn to how the expectation effect has powerful results beyond the medical world, and shows up in the areas of sleep, diet, and fitness, including how thinking of doing chores as exercise actually increases the health benefits of that activity, how reframing your anxiety can turn it into a performance-enhancing boost, and how your perception of getting older hugely affects how you will actually physically and mentally age.
