Welcome back to The becoming the big knee podcast. I'm your host,

Speaker:

Djemilah Birnie, and you are tuning into minute madness, a

Speaker:

little dose of epicness, delivered in five minutes or

Speaker:

less.

Speaker:

Me, and I wanted to talk to you about training your brain to

Speaker:

listen to you training your brain for success. Have you ever

Speaker:

experienced a situation where you tell yourself, you're going

Speaker:

to do something, whether that be a workout, whether that be your

Speaker:

something to do with your business, starting a podcast, on

Speaker:

anything, whether that be reading a book, or going to bed

Speaker:

at a certain time, or waking up at a certain time, have you

Speaker:

experienced what you tell yourself, you're going to do

Speaker:

something, and then you don't do it, and then you don't follow

Speaker:

through. While the problem is, is that you have trained your

Speaker:

brain not to trust yourself, when you say you're going to do

Speaker:

something, and this happens, this is built through the small

Speaker:

actions that we take. So your brain starts to not trust the

Speaker:

things that you say you're going to do. So those are those small

Speaker:

things, like waking up at a certain time, to those big

Speaker:

things, like creating more success in your business, or

Speaker:

buying that new house or whatever that goal is that

Speaker:

you're you're trying to achieve for yourself, right. So the way

Speaker:

that we build this trust in what we say we're going to do is

Speaker:

through the little things is through those small, little

Speaker:

things. And that's one of the reasons why I talk about you

Speaker:

know, not using the snooze on your alarm. Because when you set

Speaker:

the alarm for a certain time, you're telling yourself, I want

Speaker:

to wake up at this time. And then when you go and hit the

Speaker:

snooze button, you are starting your day off by breaking a

Speaker:

promise to yourself, you're starting your day off by saying,

Speaker:

Oh, I can't accomplish what it is that I said I wanted to

Speaker:

accomplish putting it off, right. And that gets us into

Speaker:

that state of not accomplishing the things that we say we want

Speaker:

to and procrastinating on the things that we desire right away

Speaker:

right from the get go from when you wake up. So how can you

Speaker:

change this? How can you start listening to the promises that

Speaker:

you've that you say you're going to do? How can you start

Speaker:

teaching your brain to trust you? Well, it's what it's built.

Speaker:

The distrust is built through those small habits, the trust is

Speaker:

built through those small habits as well. As you began to build

Speaker:

this back up, it's very simple, you just need to follow through

Speaker:

with the things that you say you're going to do. And a very

Speaker:

simple way to do this is to say you're going to do something

Speaker:

right before you're about to do something. So say you are going

Speaker:

to work out well, as you're pulling up to the gym, tell

Speaker:

yourself, I'm going to work out right now.

Speaker:

And then do it and follow through with it. And if you are

Speaker:

going to read a book, as you're pulling out the book, you're

Speaker:

prepared to read, tell yourself, I'm going to read right now, if

Speaker:

you're going to start working on a project, as you pull out your

Speaker:

computer, tell yourself, I'm going to work on this project

Speaker:

for the next 20 minutes. And then do it right. And then the

Speaker:

other big thing is that alarm and this is one that I know can

Speaker:

be a little challenging to overcome when you have been in

Speaker:

that habit of snoozing for years, like I know a lot of

Speaker:

people are. But that is a really huge one is when that alarm goes

Speaker:

off. That is the time that you intend to wake up and you need

Speaker:

to get up. That's the first thing that's happening in the

Speaker:

morning. And when you're not listening to yourself. And that

Speaker:

intention that's just setting you up for the rest of the day

Speaker:

to not listen to yourself. So those are my tricks on teaching

Speaker:

your brain how to trust you so that when you say you're going

Speaker:

to do something, your brain is working on your side, and it

Speaker:

actually believes you and is going to assist you in getting

Speaker:

that thing done. Right. So if you want to start training your

Speaker:

brain to trust you for those big things for the things that are

Speaker:

those needle mover tasks, then you got to start with those

Speaker:

small things. And the way I suggest it is to start building

Speaker:

that trust is to literally tell yourself that you are going to

Speaker:

do something right before you're going to do it so you know that

Speaker:

you're going to follow through and you know it's going to

Speaker:

happen and through these small little things. Your brain is

Speaker:

going to start trusting you and then remember to not snooze your

Speaker:

alarm.
