Most of us are held back by the negative stories we tell ourselves when things happen. How do our negative stories keep us from growing? How does our ego drive this behavior? On this episode, I’m going to share a powerful lesson I learned from my own experience with my car.

Takeaways

When circumstances and situations happen, our egos will immediately go into defense mode, because its job is to keep us safe.

There are two kinds of entrepreneurs, the one who accepts responsibility when something goes wrong, and the one who places blame on external factors.

The way you do anything is the way you do everything.

 

At the start of the show, I shared a story about how I built up a huge negative story when my car kept annoying me with rattling sounds, and how it was solved so easily. Next, I shared the lesson I learned from that about a common mistake we make. Towards the end, I talked about the steps you can take to start overcoming your own negative stories.

I also shared on;

  • How the ego is responsible for the stories we tell
  • The two types of entrepreneurs
  • The two states human beings are usually in

 

There are only two states you can be in. You can be in a loving state where you’re happy, joyful and grateful. You can also be in the hell of your own negative thoughts and the stories you’ve built around them. If you’re not performing where you want to perform at, it’s because you’re living in hell in your mind. I challenge you to really examine how often you tell negative stories informed by your perception and not reality.
