Elephants & Mindsets


African elephants are the largest land mammals. They can grow to be 13 ft tall from toe to shoulder. Some species of elephants can weigh up to $13,000. Their trunk alone has 150,000 separate muscles, which gives them enough power to uproot full-grown trees. Why do we see these magnificent creatures held back by tiny ropes at the circus?

As an infant, these elephants have been conditioned to believe they cannot break their chains. When they were small, they were held back by a giant log chain that was too much for them to break. After a while, the poor creature stopped trying to break free. Although it is more than physically capable, it has been conditioned with this limited mindset.

If an elephant is spurred into a rage, it can break the chains that bind it and tear down the entire circus. I use this analogy for you, my readers. The human mind is infinitely capable, yet limited mindsets hold us back. Sometimes these mindsets aren’t even our own. They are limiting beliefs passed down for generations or by our society. What limited mindset is holding you back? Are you suffering from learned helplessness?

When I first started writing, I believed it took years to write a book, and now I realize I could write a book in 30 days. When I realized I could publish my next book in 30 days, I listened to one of my coaches talk about writing a book on a weekend. Then when I just started believing that that was possible, another coach of mine, Dr. Joe Vitale, wrote his 81st book by transcribing a 2-hour seminar.

The three keys to succeeding in this course are planning, redefining, in mindset. I believe mindset is the most important. I will leave you with a quote by the great Henry Ford.

“If you think you can, or you think you can’t, you are right.”

Whispers of the Mind: How Thoughts Become Things

Humans have a hidden superpower. With it we can both create and destroy. In most people it is raw, unfiltered and troublesome. But, if we could train it and hone it to perfection, it is powerful enough to change the world.

There’s a wise old saying that says, “for as a man thinketh in his heart so is he.” What does that mean, exactly? It means you become what you think about regularly. Your consistent thoughts become your actions, and your actions change the reality around you. I know this sounds like a bunch of hoodoos, but I promise you there’s science behind it.

What if we trained our minds to create instead of to destroy? We could change the world with one mind at a time.

What’s Holding You Back? Is it a Limit or a Limiting Belief?

Image by Junah Rosales from Pixabay 


What’s holding you back from achieving your heart’s desire? Sure, there might be logical reasons, but most of the time, it’s nothing more than a few limiting beliefs.

What are limiting beliefs?

Before May 6th, 1954, science said running a mile in under four minutes was impossible. The entire world believed it. It sounds very logical. Unfortunately, it was not true. Read that again. It was not true!

Roger Bannister was determined to break the barrier, and he did on May 6th. That day he finished at 3: 59. With one race, Bannister broke a limiting belief held by the entire world. Think about it. This belief was held by humanity for six thousand years of recorded history, and one man broke it with one amazing foot race. 

So let me ask you a question. Think about all of the reasons you can’t achieve success. Write them down. Then I want you to study them carefully. Are they limits, or are they limiting beliefs?

If you think Roger Bannister was just some superhuman, let me tell you another tidbit of information. His record only lasted 46 days! Somebody else broke it six weeks later. Now more than 1400 men have broken the barrier.

So was it really a limit, or was it a mindset? It was a limiting belief.

How many times have you told yourself? You can’t succeed because you went to the wrong school or didn’t have enough money. If you study the most successful people in the world, you will find that most of them didn’t go to the right school, have the right name, or have enough money.

You’ll find people with dyslexia that failed school. When you start studying successful people, you’ll find high school dropouts, college dropouts, poverty-stricken people, and people of all sizes, shapes, and colors. It doesn’t matter what your limiting belief is. It can be overcome.

I think about one example that hit me hard. When I first heard it. I was writing true crime stories back then and listened to an interview given by Sammy the bull. For those who don’t know, he was John Gotti’s underboss. In this interview, he blamed everything on the fact that he had dyslexia and didn’t do good in school. No one was there to guide him, so he just went off the rails. Now, this sounds legitimate. But then listen to this. Richard Branson has dyslexia too. He didn’t do well in school either. At the time of this writing, he is worth 3 billion dollars!

If that doesn’t surprise you enough, guess who else is on the list of famous dyslexics on Google.? Albert Einstein! Yes, you read that right. The man known for his IQ and genius had dyslexia.

So let me ask you again. Why can’t you achieve what you’re going after? Are those excuses valid? Maybe you need to learn a new skill or find a mentor, but you can overcome your perceived limits most of the time.

Desire Is Not A Dirty Word (It’s ok to Want More Out of Life)


What is your first thought when someone mentions the word desire? Most of the time, it comes with a negative feeling. We usually think of something to do with lust and or greed. Even Webster’s Dictionary leans towards the negative when defining desire. I had to read through three definitions before finding one that felt more positive. 

Desire: a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen. 

Those in religious circles have been told to be content so often that it has made us feel like desire is bad. In reality, it’s a tool for growth. Yes, it is good to be content in whatever stage of life, but contentment doesn’t mean the absence of all desire. 

While everyone is trying to prove their contentment, society has slowly started shunning excellence and celebrating mediocrity. All of a sudden, no one tries to strive for perfection anymore. It’s easier to follow the masses into the abyss of mediocre living. We don’t push forward and excel in life because we fear being labeled greedy. We don’t want to offend our limited-mindset friends, so we don’t dream of bigger and better things.

What would happen if all humans gave up the desire for greatness? Would we have the lightbulb if every inventor had shouted their contentment with the candle? Would we have automobiles if everyone remained content with the horse and buggy?

Desire is an expression of the innermost being of humanity. It’s the onward impulse of an ever-growing man. Desire is what makes us grow to our fullest potential. Have you ever thought that maybe the desire you feel burning in your chest was placed there by Universal providence?

“You don’t achieve goals. You GROW into them.” – Bob Proctor

What if you were meant to achieve great things in your lifetime, but society has pressed you down into conformity?

Life Has A New Chapter for You, But You Have to Turn the Page


Life has been chaotic, but now it’s a new season and chapter in our lives. Sometimes we hesitate to turn the page even if the last chapter was stressful. Why do we do this?

Why is it so hard to let go of something we didn’t enjoy?
My research has shown that burnout literally changes our brain’s structure. The amygdala enlarges the prefrontal cortex thins. The Prefrontal Cortex controls your memory and your decision-making skills. The amygdala controls your brain’s fear centers. When you’ve been in a state of chaos, stress, and burnout for a long time, the structure of your brain deteriorates. It’s hard for you to make decisions and to remember things. On the flip side, the amygdala enlarges and over-processes fear stimuli.
Although our brain structure changes with prolonged stress, that is only one factor. Sometimes we can’t let go of the past because we feel justified in being angry about what happened. Other times we get stuck in the bottomless pit of what if. And sometimes, the unknown of starting a new chapter in our lives can be a little unsettling. Even though the past was uncomfortable, we still know how to handle it. The unknown can be intimidating.
When we move into a new chapter, we must remember to leave the past in the past. Do not drag all of the pain and drama from the past into the next chapter. Sometimes we destroy our pleasant future with the pains of the past.

Whenever you find the clouds parting and the sun starting to shine through in the chaos of life, take a moment to let go of the past and step into the bright new future.
