I hate to say it but the coaching industry is broken. What most coaches don’t realize is that they are working against the way the brain is wired to get results. So many well meaning coaches have learned broken coaching methods which means they are coaching the wrong way… coaching the wrong thing! Coaching symptoms instead shifting at the source. And it’s not their fault! There is no governing body - no regulation - in the coaching industry. Which is why just about anyone can become a “coach”. Even though these coaches mean well and their heart is in the right place, because of these broken coaching methods - they could be causing more harm than good. Causing their clients to work harder in all the wrong ways, which stops lasting and genuine transformation. In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk about the broken parts of the coaching industry.  Coaches are needed now more than ever! As a coach, we need to show up big, serve deeply, and help guide people to the best version of themselves.  Coaching clients to ”just work harder” or “stay motivated” or “keep pushing and it will happen” just doesn’t work - their brains are wired differently than yours! To get lasting transformation, you have to provide source-based, brain-based methods with the Neurocoaching model™. If you want to learn how to create source based coaching transformations and get breakthrough results for your client - at the source - then turn up the volume and join me! The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   Telling people what they should think does more harm than good!   Your brain is wired differently than your coach’s brain. Your brain is wired differently than your client’s brain. When you tell someone to do what you did or think how you think, you're causing them to work against the way their brain is wired. They have to know the way their own brain thinks so that they can start thinking in a way that works for their advantage. [3:03]   We have to do source- or brain-based coaching - not symptom-based coaching.   Real coaching - the coaching that provides lasting transformation and authentic breakthrough - is source-based. As a coach, you have to get to the root, get to the source of the unwanted actions. We know through the STEBDAR method that it’s the automated beliefs that make up 80-90% of decisions and actions. As a coach, are you getting to the source of those beliefs? Or are you coaching based on symptoms? [6:06]    Transformed people transform people.    I know that you have a big heart that loves to show up and serve in a big way! I know that because that is who coaches are at their core, and that is why you are here. When you experience true transformation, you can’t help but want to share that transformation. It’s in our nature. It’s time to start transforming people at the source, with brain science! [12:15] I know that you want to see lasting transformation in your clients. I know you want your clients to have a transformed mindset - creating their thoughts to create the life they’ve always dreamed of having.  I also know you want sold out coaching programs! You can be the coach that creates lifelong, source-based transformation rooted in science. And I’m here to help you do it!  Want to learn more about becoming Neurocoach™ certified?  Now more than ever, coaching is a vital business that is growing faster than ever before and your voice and expertise is needed in the market.

Picture this.  Thousands of lives are being transformed… bettered… changed! People are walking in the fullness of their calling and in the fullness of their purpose. People are living as the best version of themselves. Good things are happening. People are being helped. Love and encouragement is being shared.  And it’s all because you helped them get there by stepping into your calling and walking in your EPIC vision, creating a legacy movement, and changing the world.  In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk with Alex Charfen about creating momentum in your business. Alex Charfen is the author of the Entrepreneur Personality Type & The Billionaire Code. He helps entrepreneurs grow and scale their businesses and build game changing teams through his Charfen Cadence. And I am one of those entrepreneurs!  Epic Success has been growing in momentum for months now and I decided that I wanted to scale my business and build a world class team… Which is why I’m working with Alex! I can’t wait for you to dive into this game changing podcast! The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   “There are clear differences in what successful people do and so I started applying those things to my life.”    After years of studying successful people, Alex found that there were similarities and commonalities in and between these people. And there were patterns within patterns and personality descriptors that began to shed light on common attributes that successful people had. Through this, he has created his Entrepreneurial Personality Type system. [6:15]   In today’s world, we have this belief that if you aren’t like everyone else, then something is wrong with you.    Part of your superpower is being you! The real you! In today’s world, it’s easy to feel the pressures to “fit in”, show up, and be like everyone else. It can be difficult to be different and do things in your unique way. But I want to call you to it! You are you and nobody else! So walk in the fullness of who you are and live out your epic calling! [8:49]    “Any attempt to be anything other than yourself only increases pressure and noise… it’s sabotaging your success.”   Who you are and how you show up is so important! And it has to be authentic! Waking up everyday and living a facade will take a toll on your business, your health, your finances, your life. You are you! So be the real, authentic, unique person that you are. And own it! [36:00] I want to leave you with this challenge. Go to BillionaireCode.com and download the free resource: “The Nine Levels Every Entrepreneur Must Go Through To Get From Start-up To True Growth and Scale”. In this resource, you’re going to discover where you are currently at in your business, what you need to do next to climb the “Billionaire Code”, and how to continue scaling your business to the growth you’ve been dreaming of. I know this is for you. And I know that you are exactly where you are supposed to be. You are exactly who you are supposed to be! I know the world can be messy and intimidating but you are you for a reason!  I want to see you walk in the fullness of who you are with confidence, joy, and clarity! I want to see you live out your mission in authenticity, vulnerability, and uniqueness! And I am here to help you do it! As coaches (and those becoming coaches) making an impact on the world, we should be showing up big! passionate! and confident! Now more than ever, coaching is a vital business that is growing faster than ever before and your voice and expertise is needed in the market. Are you ready to step up to create lasting transformation for your clients & become the go-to coach in your niche?

How much are you letting fear control your life? What is the thing that you’re saying that is stopping you from playing big and doing the big things you desire to do? Seriously though… Take a second and think about it.  What is that fear-filled thought that you’ve been telling yourself over and over again for years? In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk about how to Ditch Fear in the Brain so you can start choosing the life you want to live! Everyone has experienced some sort of fear and it’s totally normal! Fear is a part of life. It actually is there to keep us alive.  The amazing thing is that we have the power to rewire our brains for our advantage and actually ditch the fear that controls us.  Imagine life (and business) without the anxiety stopping you cold from playing big! Grab a pen and paper and let’s dive into how to ditch fear in the brain! The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   Fear is the thing that your brain uses to keep you safe.   Your brain is wired to keep you safe and in a familiar state. When you are in a difficult situation and you feel threatened, your brain will do everything it can to keep you safe and away from that threat. Fear floods your brain with fight or flight neurochemicals and it determines the way you respond to a situation. The cool thing is… Your brain can be wired to recognize and respond in a way you actually choose. [3:20]   Your brain sees anything bigger than what you are currently doing, as a threat.   Your brain is doing it’s best to keep you safe and familiar. And when you try to do something different… Your brain will see it as a threat. It doesn’t matter how safe or risky or big or small the different thing you want to do is. Your brain doesn’t view things as good or bad. It just sees it as different, and different is a threat. [12:20]    The situation is neutral. Your thinking is what creates an emotion and belief.     Thoughts create your emotion. Thoughts and emotions repeated over time will create an automated belief in your brain. Those beliefs will create your identity. Good news! You can be the creator of your thoughts and therefore, create the life you’ve always dreamed of having! [14:37] I want you to walk in peace and confidence, choosing the way you want to live and walking in your full purpose and mission! You can’t do that when your brain is operating out of fear.  It’s time to wire your brain for peace and start choosing your thoughts, decisions, and actions around the inevitable fear you will feel.  Tell me: What one thing from today’s podcast will you implement to smack fear in the face? I want to know! DM on Instagram or send me a message on Facebook. I look forward to hearing from you!

How many times have you planned on doing a social media live, only to stare at your face in the camera for five minutes, *palms sweaty*, and close the app because of nerves?  I know it’s not just me!  We make these big plans, we have the script and the steps and the to-do list but something always keeps us from actually doing it. We keep… stopping.  In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk about how to hack your brain's protection system so that you Stop Stopping!  It's time to finally take action and start working your brain for your advantage so that you can build the life and business you’ve always dreamed of having. I can’t wait to dive into the three things that you must do to help your brain see that it’s safe to stop stopping! Grab a pen and paper and let’s jump into hacking your brain! The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   You have automated stories that keep you playing small.    Your brain automates the thoughts that are repeated over time. You probably have automated thoughts and beliefs that you don’t even realize are there. “I don’t know.” “I can’t.” “I’m stuck.” “I’m overwhelmed.” These are all self limiting beliefs that can be automated in the brain. And those automated beliefs keep you playing small and stop you from living out your mission. [7:01]   Your brain isn’t looking at your goal sheet or your vision board.   Your brain is constantly trying to achieve these 3 basic human needs: 1. Safety 2. Worth and 3. LoveEvery action you try to make, every goal you try to aim for… If it does not line up with those three basic needs, then your brain will resist it and make it almost impossible for you to achieve. Your brain doesn’t care about your goals, it cares about keeping you safe, valued, and loved. Lucky for us, we can rewire what those things look like in our brain! [8:43]    Stop stopping by deciding in advance (DIA).    The brain’s automation system is based on what is being repeated. The first step in rewiring your brain to stop stopping is awareness of the thought and deciding your action in advance, no matter when the thought comes up! When you decide to follow through with your decided action in advance, you are able to show your brain that you are safe, valued, and loved. Doing this over time will create a new neuronetwork and be automated in your brain. [19:30] It’s time to start hacking your brain’s protection system so that you can finally take action and stop the stopping! Work your brain for your advantage and start leaning into your full mission! Tell me: What are you going to do this week to start hacking your brain? I want to know!

Money is… what? Okay... Tell me honestly, what was you first thought!?  The truth is, every single person is going to have a different answer. Every single person has different thoughts and beliefs about and around money. “Money is hard to make.” “Money is a necessary evil.” “Money is the root of all evil.” “Money is energy.” And then there’s the “I need more money.” “You can never have enough money.” And maybe for a few of you, “Money is easy to make and it comes to me easily!” Whatever the story is, the truth is, you have one… You have a money story.  In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk about your brain and money - what you think and believe about money, and therefore what happens in your life because of it. Our brain automates all sorts of stories… Including money stories. What you believe about money and what you think about money matters.  I can’t wait to dive into your brain and money so that you can finally start choosing the thoughts in your brain that will bring you the money success you’ve been dreaming of! The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are: The thing blocking you from more income and business growth is in your brain.  Your brain has thousands of neural networks built in your brain. These neural networks are automated after thoughts are repeated over time. Those repeated thoughts and beliefs are there and you might not even realize it. What you believe about money affects your success around it. Lucky for us, we can choose our thoughts and do the work to rewire our brain. [3:20] Everyone has an identity around money.  What are the stories you’re telling yourself (maybe without even realizing it)? Everyone has an identity around money. If you don’t know what yours is, let me ask you these questions: People who have money are… what? People who don’t have money are… what? With money, what’s possible? What do you gain (or lose) when you have money? How you answer these questions about money will help reveal your money stories. [8:35]  Start by separating the money story from the money facts.  Now that you know that you can choose your thoughts and beliefs around money, it’s time to do the work. Start by separating the good money stories from the bad money stories. Decide in advance to choose the thoughts and beliefs you want to think. When you do that, you will start to see the money success in your life that you’ve been craving! [13:10] It’s time to start choosing your money stories! And when you do the work to choose those good beliefs about money, you’ll realize that money is abundant and good and flowing in your direction! Because guess what!? It. Is.

When I was a kid, we would drive through upscale neighborhoods and my dad would always say, “These people can only afford living here because they’re living off the work of good people.” In my young, child brain, I equated having money and living in a nice house to being a bad person. And my brain not only believed that for many, many years, but it caused me to operate and make decisions out of that belief. It held me back for a long time.  In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I break down How the Brain Wires Success and How the Brain Wires Failure. Our brain is wired in such a specific way and when we have an understanding of how the brain works and operates, we are able to work our brains for us, instead of our brains working us. I can’t wait to dive into success and failure in your brain so that you can go from stressed-success to thriving success.  The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   Your negative thinking is not your fault.   First things first… The way you think is not.your.fault! Your brain will automate the thoughts and beliefs you think over time. This means that you have automated beliefs you don’t even realize you’re living out of. And it isn’t your fault - it’s the way our brains are wired. Good news! You have the ability to rewire that! [4:03]    Safe and familiar means something different to everyone… including you.   Your brain’s entire job is to keep you safe and familiar. When you try to do something different (good or bad), your brain will see that as a risk and will block you from the success you’re working towards. Thoughts in your brain have been wired and automated and your brain will adamantly work towards keeping you in that same (safe and familiar) thinking. [8:40]    Being aware of your thoughts is the first step to rewiring old automation that leads you to failure to new automation that brings you success.    In order to rewire your old automated thoughts and beliefs, you first have to be aware of what you’re actually thinking. You have to recognize the thoughts. And when you identify the self-sabotaging thoughts, you break down the wall that is keeping you in that safe and familiar state. Those thoughts leading you to failure can be wired to lead you to epic success. [13:46] It’s time to start living as the best version of yourself. It’s time to start serving the people you’ve always wanted to serve. It’s time to be the creator of your thoughts and create the life you’ve always dreamed of having.  Tell me: What are you going to do this week to become the creator of your thoughts? I want to know! DM on Instagram or send me a message on Facebook. I look forward to hearing from you! Are you a coach or thinking of becoming one?

Have you ever been stretched too thin and overwhelmed? Me too! When I first started as an entrepreneur there was never enough of me to go around.  I wanted to do it all - run my business, grow my non-profit, care for my household, and be a mother - but I felt like I’d have to give something up.  What I didn’t know was that my brain was working against me… instead of having my brain work for me.  This week is the ninth week in our podcast series: The Brain Science of Success.  In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk about the three key components that science teaches us about success in the brain.  Knowing how your brain works is key to understanding how you're wired, and if you don’t, you are at risk of working against your brain - instead of having your brain work for you and for your advantage.  I can’t wait to dive into the 3 key components that will help you become the creator of your thoughts so you can create the life you’ve always dreamed of having.  The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   Your brain isn’t naturally wired to bring you success.   Our brain’s job is not to bring us big success or uplevel our business. Your brain’s job is to keep us alive in a safe and familiar state. So when you want something really big or really different, your brain will see that as a threat and keep you from achieving your dreams. [3:59]    90% of what you do is automated in your brain.   Your brain will automate the thoughts you tell yourself over time. The majority of these automated subconscious thoughts and beliefs are automated as a young child. And 90% of the actions you take are being operated out of that automation. That’s why it feels like your brain is working against you. Good news is… You can rewire your brain and automate the thoughts you want… to the thoughts that serve you. [8:50]   You have to slow down so you can speed up.   I see a lot of entrepreneurs trying to hustle to make things happen. The go, go, go and struggle to accomplish anything. It’s like having your foot on the gas pedal and brake pedal at the same time - you get nowhere and just go in circles. You have to slow down to speed up. Slow down, become aware of your thoughts, and rewire the old automated thoughts.  [18:33] You can be the creator of your thoughts and create the life you’ve always dreamed of having and you can start right here, right now! Tell me: What are you going to do this week to become the creator of your thoughts? I want to know! DM on Instagram or send me a message on Facebook. I look forward to hearing from you!

Stop seeing and doing everything through your past filters… I’m choosing to turn the autopilot off!Thank you Dr Shannon!!

What makes you tick? Why are you the way that you are? How many Buzzfeed quizzes and personality tests have you taken to figure it out? Which Disney Character am I? What color is my aura? Which Pumpkin Dessert Matches My Personality? (and for all my fall lovers… yes! That’s a real quiz!) It’s in our DNA to want to know! The amazing thing is… There’s a brain science behind knowing ourselves, our personalities, and other people’s too! This week is the eighth week in our podcast series: The Brain Science of Success. I’ve invited some of my colleagues and leading doctors to come talk with you over the next few weeks about how to maximize the power of your brain to work for you - and not against you!  In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk with Alex Paulos about the brain science of recognizing people and personalities in your life and in your business. Alex Paulos is the author of the book, “Recognizing People” and an expert on the brain science of personality, facial recognition, and how all of that connects to running a business. The idea of reading faces is an ancient idea that can help you scale your business in a modern world. I can’t wait to deep dive with you into this big idea of Recognizing People (...and yourself)! The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   “Temperament (innate personality) is inborn - you are born with it and you die with it.”    Everybody is born with a specific and individual temperament. It’s an innate characteristic that makes you… you. And there is a brain science behind temperament, personality, individual characteristics to who you are. And when you know who you are innately and have that awareness, you are able to see things for what they are and create the reality you actually want. [6:18]    “Breaking down what is actually you will give you permission and confidence to live the real you.”   When you know who you are - your genuine, authentic self - your personality, the drive and motivation behind your actions - you tap into a whole new world of what it means to actually be you. And when you have that awareness, you are able to choose the thoughts that lead you to the best version of yourself and the best life you’ve only dreamed of living. [10:01]   “Pretending to be something that you’re not will keep you stuck.”   You have to have an awareness of who you really are. You have to be able to know who you are, know the motivation behind why you do what you do, and understand yourself at your core. The first step is to get rid of all deception in your life about yourself - good or bad, if it is not true then you are not living in the real version of yourself. Do you see yourself clearly? [53:33] Oh this week’s interview was amazing and I could’ve talked with Alex for hourssss.  We all have this deep desire to know who we really are, and we’re often misguided by personality quizzes and the different ways you can type yourself. The good news is that there is a brain science behind discovering who we really are, the motivation behind why we do what we do, and understanding ourselves at our core.  I can’t wait to see you step into the full reality of who you are and begin to create the thoughts that will create the reality you’ve always wanted! Are you a coach or thinking of becoming one? Now more than ever, coaching is a vital business that is growing faster than ever before and your voice and expertise is needed in the market. And I have something just.for.you! I'm hosting a free, Live coach training session where you will learn a predictable way to enroll at least 10 new coaching clients every single month and NEW coaches can learn the exact RIGHT steps to confidently coach AND profitably launch their business from scratch!

Today I want to give a shoutout to one of my Epic Success Podcast listeners who left a 5-star review titled “You want more success in life a...”: “Thanks so much for your awesome information. Super valuable.”   I absolutely love sharing the brain-based process of creating success in your life & business with you each week on the Epic Success podcast! Reviews are how I know you’re finding value and help me share Epic Success with more people!

I don’t know if you knew this or not but… We  store emotion in our body.  That stress, anxiety, overwhelm… All of that emotion comes from thoughts - and those thoughts are directly connected and interwoven with your body.  What you think affects your body. How your body feels affects your mind.  It’s Mind-Body Connection.  This week is the seventh week in our podcast series: The Brain Science of Success. I’ve invited some of my colleagues and leading doctors to come talk with you over the next few weeks about how to maximize the power of your brain to work for you - and not against you!  In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk with Jacquelyn Umof  “Action Jacqulyn” about the differences between Mind-Body Connection and mind and body connection. Because there is a difference! Jacquelyn Umof is the Mind-Body Expert. She is an entrepreneur, YouTube personality, public speaker, the creator of Get Stretchy, the Co-Founder of Get Stretchy At Work. She understands how overwhelming health and fitness can be. Jacquelyn shares that daily mindful movement can create a happier life, a more positive outlook, success in your work and relationships, and a deeper sense of self-love. She has found a way to make fitness more approachable, time-effective, and way more fun. I am so ready for you to jump into this week’s podcast and start your journey on Mind-Body Connection! The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   “We tend to dissociate mind and body but really it’s Mind-Body.”    Our mind and body is connected and intertwined so much that it becomes Mind-Body… Not just mind and body. We can easily get stuck on individualizing them and separating the two, but when we really understand that the two are interdependent and woven together, we are able to work it towards our advantage. Your thoughts create your reality, and what you think will show up in the way your body feels and reacts. [6:20]    “Feeling connected to your body will help you move anxiety out.”   When you are aware of your body - the things you feel, see, hear - that awareness will ground you and help you recognize the thoughts and emotions you’re experiencing. And being aware helps you to choose what you want to do and where you want to go. And once you choose the thought that serves you, you have the power to automate it. [7:18]   “Integration helps you connect the dots… Our life shows up in patterns.”   When you look at Mind-Body Connection and see how the two are interdependent, then you will realize how connected they really are and how they coexist. When you are aware of both your thoughts and your body, you open up a whole new world of awareness. [29:06] Mind. Body. Connected. It’s a coexisting concept. Not one or the other. The two are so intertwined and what you think shows up in your body and vice versa.  I know this is for you! You can be the creator of your thoughts and the creator of the way your body feels. I see this in you and I’m here to help you along the way! I would love to know your #1 takeaway from this episode - tag me @drshannonirvine on Instagram and let me know!  And next week is a can’t miss episode too - I’ll be speaking with Alex Paulos all about how your personality affects your success! Are you a coach or thinking of becoming one? Now more than ever, coaching is a vital business that is growing faster than ever before and your voice and expertise is needed in the market.

Whether you think you can or think you can’t… You’re right.  Henry Ford said that in 1947 and he had a point. The things you think will play out in your day-to-day life. And lucky for us… Our brain is wired in such a way that we can neurohack what we want! Meaning… We can be the creator of our thoughts. You can be the creator of your thoughts. And in turn, create the reality you’ve always dreamed of having.  This week is the sixth week in our podcast series: The Brain Science of Success. I’ve invited some of my colleagues and leading doctors to come talk with you over the next few weeks about how to maximize the power of your brain to work for you - and not against you!  In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk with Ben Cote about neurohacking your brain to achieve success in your life and in your business.  Ben Cote is the Director of Brand & Community at Neurohacker Collective and is a part of pioneering complex systems in science for human optimization and longevity - specifically with the brain and how it is wired. I’m excited to see you neurohack your brain for success! The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   “You are in control of your life and you are in control of your health and well being.”    2020 has turned out to be less than the majority of us have expected. But 2020 has collectively taught us how to slow down, evaluate where we’re at, and then decide what we want our life to look like. Despite the pandemic and lockdowns and everything in between, we get to choose how we want to live and decide for ourselves the success we want to achieve in each area of our lives. And you can get your brain on the same page. [3:18]    “The mind affects so much throughout the body and all of it is connected.”   I say it all the time - Your thoughts will create your reality. The things you think and the things you tell yourself hold so much power over the way you live your life in the day-to-day. And those thoughts, your mind, has a big affect on your body - the way you move, the way you react, the way you interact with people, and everything in between. [7:30]   “It’s super important to pay attention to what you are putting in your mind.”   We take care of our bodies by making sure we eat right and exercise and get enough sleep at night. In that same way, we should be paying attention to what we are putting into our minds. The news we watch, the social media we obsess over, the music we listen to in the background is all feeding our subconscious and setting the tone for our days. Be aware and make sure you’re feeding your mind healthy content. [43:10] Are you ready to shape your subconscious, rewire your brain, and neurohack your way to success? I know you are! You can be the creator of your thoughts and choose the things you think and the things you tell yourself. You can also do this for your subconscious thoughts - the ones you don’t even know you’re thinking. When you are the creator of your thoughts, you will create the reality you really want. I see this in you and am here to help you along your way! Do you find yourself second-guessing your decisions when it comes to your business?  Do you worry that you do not have what it takes to push it to that next level?   I’ve got your back! I am here to help you remove these success-sabotaging stories and start building your Epic Business! I have created these special 2-Part A.M. and P.M. audio Brain Priming Visualizations where I guide you to rewire your self-defeating thoughts, to write a new story that aligns with your business goals and to program the truth. Your Epic Business is waiting for you to take this step so download your free Brain Priming Visualizations and get ready to crush your own expectations!  Today I want to give a shoutout to one of my Epic Success Podcast listeners who left a 5-star review titled “Loving the delivery :o)”: “Dr. Shannon gives a unique take with amazing delivery on tying all these topics together to apply in business and in life. Really enjoying the flow of the show and her voice.”   I absolutely love sharing the brain-based process of creating success in your life & business with you each week on the Epic Success podcast! Reviews are how I know you’re finding value and help me share Epic Success with more people! If you have something you want to say about the Epic Success podcast, I’d love it if you’d post a 5-star review on iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify or wherever you listen to podcasts.
Inhale. Exhale. Breathe in. Breathe out.  This week is the fifth week in our podcast series: The Brain Science of Success. I’ve invited some of my colleagues and leading doctors to come talk with you over the next few weeks about how to maximize the power of your brain to work for you - and not against you!  In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk with Brian MacKenzie about the importance of breath work for optimizing your brain success, human health, and performance in your life and business. .  Brian MacKenzie is an innovator in human performance on stress adaptation and a pioneer in the development and application of custom protocols to uplevel individuals. His work harnesses and integrates respiratory, movement, strength, conditioning and endurance-based training approaches to achieve positive results. I can’t wait for you to dive deep with me in the importance of breath work to achieve brain success. The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   “Breathe is energy and it’s the only means we have for long term use of energy.”    The average person believes that energy can be created. There is no energy that is created. Energy is moved and transferred, and we move it through breathing. [4:30]    “If we’re in a high state of response, then we are likely reacting to things in panic.”   When there is a situation, we can either react or respond. Responding requires us to slow down, and focusing on our breath gives our brain the space to respond accordingly, instead of simply reacting. There is an importance in slowing down, anchoring ourselves, and paying attention to the way we breathe.  [6:15]   “Our chemistry is regulated through breathing.”   Our brain is wired in a specific way. Our bodies operate in a specific way. And we have the power and ability to work the two together to optimize their performance and bring us success to our life, and our business in the process. [17:22] What would it look like in your business to slow down, breath, and respond, instead of reacting quickly or panicking? No really. What.Would.It.Look.Like? Would your day-to-day life look brighter, lighter, fuller? Would you be calm and collected, leading your team from a place of openness and supportiveness?  Slowing down and having a breathing practice will help you achieve just that. It takes time, but once you automate it in your brain, your brain will work it into your life for you so you can have success in your business and in your life.  I started my digital business with a roadmap - I had a specific, step-by-step plan given to me that ensured a smooth and reliable way for me to get my course online and into the hands and minds of thousands.  My good friend Amy Porterfield introduced her Digital Course Academy to me and gave me the roadmap I used to build my successful online course. Through her expert advice and step by step processes and methods, I’ve been able to reach thousands of entrepreneurs and business owners to help them be the creator of their thoughts to create the reality they’ve always dreamed of having. Amy’s Digital Course Academy is the most proven, refined, and comprehensive program for creating and launching a digital course business… And… Joining Digital Course Academy turned out to be a Game Changer for my business. Within a few months of joining, I was able to launch my Epic Success Program and have so many people join the waitlist! When you sign up through my link for Digital Course Academy, you'll get your hands on all of Amy's program and all my bonuses. The doors are closing soon. You should see what's on the inside! Today I want to give a shoutout to one of my Epic Success Podcast listeners who left a 5-star review titled “SUCH an EPIC podcast”: “Wow, Dr. Shannon really brings it on this podcast! I love that she’s faith-centered and lets us behind the curtain on how she’s built her business! I’m hooked!!!”   I absolutely love sharing the brain-based process of creating success in your life & business with you each week on the Epic Success podcast! Reviews are how I know you’re finding value and help me share Epic Success with more people! If you have something you want to say about the Epic Success podcast, I’d love it if you’d post a 5-star review on iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify or wherever you listen to podcasts.
How do you view your brain? How do you view your body? When you think about your brain and your body, are you separating the two? Over the years, I have had to be intentional about reminding myself that the two are connected. Mind and body go hand-in-hand and work within and around each other every.single.day.  This week is the fourth week in our podcast series: The Brain Science of Success. I’ve invited some of my colleagues and leading doctors to come talk with you over the next few weeks about how to maximize the power of your brain to work for you - and not against you!  In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk with Dr. Jen Esquer about the connective piece between mind and body.  Dr. Jen (known as Doc Jen Fit) is a top-40 physical therapy influencer with a doctorate in physical therapy, and she is currently ranked as one of the Best Fitness Trainers. Dr. Jen is a mobility expert who helps people to connect the mind and the body so that they can move into the most creative and focused version of themselves.  Get ready because we’re diving into the brain science of success.  The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   “Pain is interconnected to the body, mind, and lifestyle. It’s not just physical.”    Sometimes we get into a mindset that separates the mind and the body. We look at pain, stress, and circumstance as solely physical or solely mental and we often forget that mind and body go hand-in-hand. When we are aware of how our brain and body work together, we open the door to opportunity and take the power and control back into our hands so we can create the life we really want. [3:40]    “It is not about the money or the results, it’s about what you are willing to step into.”   Everybody is wanting the magic blue pill or the big secret that will fix and change everything in an instant. That magic thing doesn’t exist. You have to be willing to step into who you want to be and do the work around your thoughts. Recognize and be aware of the negative, self-sabotaging belief, then refute it and rewire it! When you are the creator of your thoughts, you will create the life you’ve always dreamed of having. [11:45]   “We can either react to what we are doing or we can respond.”   There is a difference between reacting and responding. When we react, we are oftentimes not thinking or processing the situation. When we respond, we are intentional and aware and are slowing down and truly deciding the best way to respond to that situation. Reacting tends to lead to high stress, comparison, and overwhelm. Responding leads to intentional decision making, creating meaningful service, and staying aligned with our vision. [28:02] You have the ability to connect your mind and your body to work together so that you can live in the best version of yourself and you can start doing it today.

Do you ever wonder what it would be like to eliminate the thoughts that are holding you back? To stop thinking negative and self-destructive and self-sabotaging thoughts.  To stop falling into overwhelm and procrastination. And not only get rid of those thoughts, but actually rewire your brain and rewire those thoughts for.good. And I’m here to tell you that you can! This week is the third week in our podcast series: The Brain Science of Success. I’ve invited some of my colleagues and leading doctors to come talk with you over the next few weeks about how to maximize the power of your brain to work for you - and not against you!  In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk with Dr. Patrick Porter about the intricate features and roles our brain plays in our day-to-day lives. Dr. Patrick Porter is an award-winning author, entrepreneur, and speaker. With 24 years of experience operating the largest self-help franchise, he has become a highly sought-after expert within the personal improvement industry. Grab a pen and paper and let’s dive deep into the brain science of success.  The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   “The reality is that we have a lot of brain features and our brain will compensate and adapt and overcome when something doesn’t line up right.”    The brain is wired to keep us safe and familiar. When something doesn’t line up with that state of familiarity, our brain will compensate, adapt and try to overcome that thing in order to keep you in that safe and familiar state. When we are aware of this, we are able to create the thoughts that serve us and work our brain for our advantage. [5:58]    “When things are happening to you, you react to them. That is the survival part of your brain.”   We have the ability to switch the hat our brain wears… but only when we are aware of the different roles our brain can play. Most of the time, we operate out of the reactionary part of our brain. Something happens, and we react. This is the survival part of our brain, and when we operate out of this, we often miss the creative opportunities that are right in front of us. [8:50]   “People don’t know that they are stressed because it becomes their neurological norm.”   Our brain automates the thoughts we repeat over time. And a lot of us automate stress… And we  don’t even realize it. When we automate those kinds of thoughts, we are limiting ourselves and operating out of an unhealthy state. Good news is that our brain is able to be rewired and we get to choose the thoughts we want to think! [25:50] There is a science to the way our brain operates and functions in our day-to-day lives. When we know the way our brain works, we are able to work with it for our advantage.  I want to see you work your brain for your advantage. You can be the creator of your thoughts and have the life you’ve always dreamed of   And when you become the creator of your thoughts, you become aware of a whole new world of opportunities where you can automate success for your life and your business.  The brain science of success is fascinating, isn’t it? I am here to help you tap into the power of your brain to speak life and success into your neural networks. To connect with Dr. Porter and get your own Brain Tap click here (affiliate link). I love mine and use it every single day! I wanted to check in & remind you that my friend and mentor Amy Porterfield's LIVE, free masterclass "How to Create and Launch a Profitable Digital Course From Scratch (The Behind-the-Scenes Secrets to Generate Revenue Year-Round)" kicks off this week. Amy's the one who helped me bring the Epic Success Program to life.   Without her guidance, I'd still be struggling to live out my calling to serve 1000s of business owners and entrepreneurs to train their brain for success.  Working with her was an investment that I've made back so many times over (and more importantly, I’ve gained the freedom in my life to live and serve the way I’ve always dreamed!)

You are a part of the Epic Success Tribe, which means my hope for you comes down to this: That you'll be the creator of your thoughts to create the reality you’ve always dreamed of having—instead of operating out of fear, self-doubt and stressed-success. I don’t want you to have those stressed-out moments. Especially when it comes to getting your course online.  In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk with Amy Porterfield all about online course creating.  Amy teaches business owners, educators and entrepreneurs the profitable action steps for building a highly engaged email list, creating online training courses, and using online marketing strategies to sell with ease. Grab a pen and paper and get the steps to upleveling your online course and business.  The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   “The minute you compare yourself to someone else can lead to the death of being an entrepreneur.”    Comparison will always hold you captive. When you look at the front end of someone else’s business and you gauge it against the backend of your own it’s easy to get discouraged and overwhelmed… maybe even wanting to give up. You’ve got to do the work around comparison in your brain so that you can become aware of the comparison thoughts and redirect them. [2:30]    “Creating original content helps you to attract new audiences and nurture the ones you already have.”   Amy’s incredible step-by-step processes to creating original content on a weekly basis is just one of the things she teaches in her Digital Course Academy. When you are creating new and original content, you are able to attract new audiences, reach further and serve broader and you’re able to take care of the audiences you already have. [6:40]   “Less is more!”   It is vital that you hone in on the one thing that really speaks to who you are and what you want to do so that you can serve your tribe in the very best way. Oftentimes, as entrepreneurs, we want to have multiple courses and products to sell, when in reality, we just need to stick with one thing and give it our all. [17:30] If you’ve struggled with perfecting your online course or getting your course online, it’s okay! We have all been there, including me. And I want to encourage you… I see this in you! You can create the digital course you’ve always dreamed of having, and I want to help you do it! Tell me: What are you going to do this week to start building your online course? I’d love to know! Tell me by sending me a message on Facebook or a DM on Instagram. I can’t wait to hear from you! If you've been dreaming about stepping off the 1-on-1 work treadmill... ...found yourself saying the same.thing.over.and.over on coaching calls... ...listened to customers beg for a DIY option of what you do... ...realized you've got some insight in your brain that could be packaged up into a step-by-step system... It may be time for you to finally build that digital course.

There are two childhood events that would forever impact my life. I was abandoned by my father, first as a one year old, then again at the crucial age of 12. The depth of the broken and unworthy feeling that came from my father’s abandonment colored everything I did. I leaned toward a driven sense of perfection. Although a successful career and entrepreneurship filled my life with excitement and material things, and I was good at what I did and loved what it brought me, I could not fill the hole in my heart.  I’m not the only one with this story or one similar to it. We all have our own trauma, and that trauma can color every aspect of our lives… if we let it. This week is the second week in our podcast series: The Brain Science of Success. I’ve invited some of my colleagues and leading doctors to come talk with you over the next few weeks about how to maximize the power of your brain to work for you - and not against you!  In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk with Dr. Don Wood about the way we can create success in the brain for our life and for our business despite the trauma and difficulty life may have given.  Dr. Don Wood has spent years researching how trauma affects our minds and our lives. He began to understand that events and experiences throughout our lifetime continue to play a role in how we experience life in the present, and that once we are made aware of them, we are able to use those experiences for our own advantage.  Grab a pen and paper and let’s dive deep into the brain science of success.  The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   “If you think about something in your past and you have an emotion about that event, that is unresolved trauma and your brain is operating out of that.”    There are things that will happen to us in our lives that will stick with us for years at a time. Sometimes these things that happen to us aren’t our fault, but they still have lasting effects. The things that happen in our life and the stories we’ve held onto in our heads can hold power over the way we live our lives. We end up operating out of those thoughts, beliefs, and limits, but we are able to rewire our brain and operate out of the thoughts that serve us. [6:01]    “When you have trauma, it is stored differently inside of you. The amazing thing is that you can reset your brain and how that traumatic information plays out in your day-to-day life.”   Our brain will automate the thoughts and beliefs that we tell ourselves over time. And our actions are a result of those automated thoughts and beliefs. Most of the time, we are operating out of self-limiting, self-sabotaging beliefs that we don’t even realize we’re operating out of. Trauma plays a big part in the things we’ve grown to believe. And the amazing thing about our brains is that we can actually rewire our thoughts and beliefs to the thoughts and stories that we want to believe and operate out of.When we tap into the power of creating our thoughts, we build the life we’ve always dreamed of having. [12:15]   “Once you understand what is going on [in your brain] then it is a lot easier to come up with a solution.”   Educating yourself and knowing how the brain works is a huge advantage to the health of your life and business. When you know how the brain operates, you are able to become aware of why you do what you do. And once you have that awareness, you are able to change the things that don’t serve you and grow the things that do. [26:00] There is a science to having success automated and wired in your brain. And it is 100% in your power to wire your brain for that success.  Your brain CAN be optimized to bring you success in your business and in your life, despite the old, self-limiting beliefs and stories you used to operate out of. It can be wired to bring you success and  can be built for your advantage. And I want to see you do it!

Your brain (and mine)...    Are designed and wired and work and operate in a specific way.  It’s science. And the really amazing thing is… We have the power and ability to change and automate our brains to our advantage! This week kicks off our podcast series - The Brain Science of Success. I’ve invited some of my colleagues and leading doctors to come talk with you over the next few weeks about how to maximize the power of your brain to work for you - and not against you!  In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk with Dr. Bagnell about the way we can optimize our brains for our advantage and for our success.  Dr. Bagnell is a chiropractic doctor who practices brain based methods to help and heal his clients and their families. He promotes a whole health and wellness model - mind and body. Start tapping into the power of your brain, and grab a pen and paper and turn up the volume. This is for you! The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are: “Our brain is helping us choose the way we live our lives.”  Every single action we take will lead us to the place we are at and the place we are going. The wonderful thing is that we have the power to choose where we want to go, who we want to be, and the actions that will actually get us there. [1:30]  “You have to know where you are in order to grow towards where you want to be.” The first step is analyzing your brain and becoming aware. You have to be aware of where you are at and have a baseline where you can measure your growth. Practice being aware of your thoughts. Recognize the limiting thoughts you are thinking or the negative beliefs you have on autopilot. Once you are aware of them, you can do the work around them and change your thoughts to ones that serve you. [11:50] “You can learn how to produce more in a healthier way.” Burnout is real. Working 60+ hour work weeks happens. The hustle struggle and “if I just work harder” mentality is something I see so often. And it doesn’t have to stay that way. You can change that reality and live healthy - mind and body. [31:30] Your brain can be optimized to serve you in the very best way. Your brain can be wired to bring you success. Your brain can be built for your advantage. And I want that for you! Tune in next week for the next guest expert for the series : The Brain Science of Success and tell me…. How will you start optimizing your brain for your success? What’s one take away from today’s podcast?

Hustle. Hard work. 20 hour days. 7 days a week. Doing it alone. No team. No time. No freedom. No success. It’s easy to fall into the mindset of a solo-entrepreneur. It’s easy to fall into the pattern of all work and no play. It’s easy to fall into busy-ness and forget why you started your business in the first place.  And that doesn’t have to be you!  You can work hard, play harder, and still grow your business into the six, seven, and eight figures you’ve been dreaming of.  And you can do it by building a team.  In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk with Kelly Roach aboud building teams that actually help you grow your business, profits, and vision.  Kelly Roach transforms overworked entrepreneurs into seven-figure CEO's. With her executive Fortune 500 experience, Kelly combines timeless business principles employed by billion-dollar corporations with the speed and agility of the most powerful online marketing strategies of today. If you’re ready to start tapping into the power of having a team to help you reach your six, seven, and eight figure business, then this is for you! Let’s dive in and get started! The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are: “The more revenue you produce, the bigger your workload is. Unless you leverage a team.”  Working really hard won’t get you success on its own. The solo entrepreneur will struggle to make it on their own by doing exhaustive work, day in and day out, and sacrificing the reason you started your business in the first place. Having a team is key to growing yourself and your business the way you’ve always dreamed. [4:02]  “Get re-anchored to your purpose and take time to remember “Why did I start this?” There is a reason why you became an entrepreneur. There is a purpose you have for doing what you do. There are people that you are showing up for and serving day in and day out. How are you staying anchored to that vision and calling? It is so important to actively be aware, remind yourself, and train your brain to believe this calling, so you can see it play out in your life.  [9:05] “Keeping it simple and managing a tight team is a really important element to gaining hypergrowth.” When I first brought my online business online, I fell into this trap of hiring contractors to help me grow my business. The problem with that was that I spent all my time managing people. In reality, all I had to do was bring one qualified person on my business and start there. [15:30] You don’t have to build your dream business alone, and you shouldn’t! You can dive deep and start building a team that works alongside you to achieve the business you’ve always dreamed of having! So tell me: What step will you take next in building a team that supports your vision? Head over to Facebook or Instagram and tell me!  Are you ready to figure out what offer you should create based on your goals, your audience, and your business level? My friend Amy Porterfield has a quiz that will tell you just that! The Digital Course Academy Quiz will take you less than 2 minutes to complete. Take it now!  Today I want to give a shoutout to one of my Epic Success Podcast listeners who left a 5-star review titled “Great show! Helped change my...”: “I would still be feeling lost and guessing what my next step should be if I hadn’t found Dr Shannon Irvine’s podcast a few months ago. The insight and knowledge shared by the show’s host and guests were essential to start seeing things under a new perspective and, more importantly, to begin acting differently, especially those in those areas I needed the most: mindset, goal setting and productivity. Thank you Dr Shannon for putting this show up and for helping lots of us like me!” I absolutely love sharing the brain-based process of creating success in your life & business with you each week on the Epic Success podcast! Reviews are how I know you’re finding value and help me share Epic Success with more people!

What if what was blocking your success was 100% in your control? What if you could “flip the switch” to success in your brain and things that used to be hard and confusing, just worked? Wouldn’t you want to know how to do that? Well I can’t wait to tell you! But first I want to share something that might be hard to hear… and I have to share it anyway.  The reason you’re feeling stuck and the reason why you don’t see the success you’ve been dreaming of is...  Your brain isn’t wired for success... YET.  In other words - your brain is sabotaging your success and it’s getting in your way. In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk with a special guest, Carl Allen, who specializes in mergers and acquisitions, buying and selling small businesses, and dealmaking.  Carl Allen is an Epic Success Program graduate who learned and applied the NeuroCoaching Model™️ every step of the way. He learned how to flip that success switch on in his brain and has used that framework to grow his business to 7, then 8 figures. It has been so amazing to watch his success! If you’re ready to start tapping into the power of your brain to create success, then turn up the volume and lean in. You’re not going to want to miss this incredible, eye-opening interview  that’s just for you! The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   “The one thing that was getting in my way was myself.”   You can have all the leverage and know your purpose, but you have to get rid of the self-limiting beliefs that are holding you back. You need to rewire those stories. You need to get out of your own way so you can have the life you’ve always dreamed of. Be your own advocate. Don’t get in the way of what you really want.  [3:12]    “I know that I’m changing people’s lives and giving them their own legacy.”   The power of legacy is real. Being able to find and create your own legacy is a powerful asset to help bring success to what you’re trying to do. And then turning around and helping other people find their legacy is life changing. [7:48]   “70-80% of your results come from your mindset.”   The systems and the structures you have in place for your business are the 20%. It’s the simple day-to-day application process of your business. The 80% that matters and will really uplevel your business is your state of mind.  [8:55] You can be the creator of your thoughts, rewire the stories that are holding you back, and serve people along the way. If you’re ready to flip the success switch in your brain and learn my step-by-step, proven Success Switch Method™ & NeuroCoaching Model™ Strategies that will help you build multiple income streams and reach 6-plus-figures… AND flip the switch on your thinking to create the level of success you desire, the impact you were called to have, & the life you’ve always imagined... Then The Epic Success Program is for YOU! Cart is officially open for my signature course. I know you’re ready to start unleashing the entrepreneur inside of you. I know you’re ready to flip that invisible switch inside of your brain so that your success can be on autopilot. I know you’re ready. JOIN NOW! Today I want to give a shoutout to one of my Epic Success Podcast listeners who left a 5-star review titled “Like having brunch with the expert”: “Not only does Dr. Shannon Irvine deliver experts and increcredible advice tips for business and life in her podcast, but her interview structure presents an ease that makes you feel like you are sitting with her interviewees at the brunch table listening to an amazing conversation.”   I absolutely love sharing the brain-based process of creating success in your life & business with you each week on the Epic Success podcast! Reviews are how I know you’re finding value and help me share Epic Success with more people! If you have something you want to say about the Epic Success podcast, I’d love it if you’d post a 5-star review on iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify or wherever you listen to podcasts.
I know you have a big desire to impact people in a big way. I know this because you’re here. I know this because you’re reading these words and putting in the work.  You want to transform people... the way they do things and the way they live their lives. You want to impact them through and through, and in a long lasting way.   I know you can do it... achieve the success you’ve been longing for and transform people along the way. And I want to help you do it, just like I’ve helped thousands of other entrepreneurs show up and serve big!  In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I interview Joy Foster of TechPixies. She unfolds the story of her entrepreneurship journey and how Epic Success Academy has helped her to unleash her success.  Joy is changing lives through her program by helping women gain the confidence they need in the tech world, all while implementing the things she teaches in her own life.  Get ready. Grab a pen and paper and listen! The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   “I hadn’t fully tapped into my own mindset even though I was helping other women tap into theirs.”    I always say that transformed people transform people. You have to have the mindset transformation yourself before you can empower and help others to change their mindset. Because of mindset shift and mindset change, you will be able to create the life you’ve always dreamed of having. [3:04] “This story has become so clear since working with you [in Epic Success Academy].”  Everybody has a money story. In Joy’s case, it was “Money is bad”. She grew up being embarrassed of money and sought to escape it. With the help of Epic Success Academy, she was able to rewire that story and shift her entire belief around money as a whole. [6:15]   “When you are making big leaps, there will be resistance and negative thoughts… but [Epic Success gives you] the tools to work through those things and rewire the brain.”   Our brains are wired to keep us safe and familiar and when our brains feel threatened with something new and different, there is resistance and negative thoughts that occur in order to keep us in that state of familiarity. The good news is… We have the ability to push through that resistance in order to rewire our brain and our thinking for good! The Epic Success Academy has done it for hundreds of people and it can do it for you too! [24:30] It’s time to be the Unleashed Entrepreneur you’ve always dreamed of being! It’s time to show up big and start serving the way you’ve always wanted. It’s time to be the creator of your own thoughts so you can have the life you’ve always dreamed of having!  I see this in you… I know you can do it… And I want to help you every step of the way!  One of the best ways to do that is through the Epic Success Academy. And… The waitlist is officially open for my signature course, the Epic Success Program! Are you ready to finally believe AND achieve the success you’re looking for in your business?

“I’ll sleep when I’m dead.”  “If I just work harder, I’ll be more successful.” “I need the latest strategy and funnel for my product to get big!” I used to think these exact things. I used to say these exact words. I used to work so hard that I was putting my mental and physical health on the line. And I didn’t have to do that in order to be successful. I didn’t have to do things harder. I didn’t have to work from a place of stress. And neither do you! In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I deep dive into the 3 Mistakes That Entrepreneurs Make That Keep Them Stuck. Do you find yourself doing any of these? Lean in and listen to find out! The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   Don’t chase strategy and funnels to be a successful entrepreneur.    The way we’ve been taught to achieve success is through strategies, through funnels, and through frameworks. Doing those things solely will not bring you success. Listen in - what you need to hear is a way for you to achieve the success you desire. [4:00] Working harder doesn’t equal success.  What do you think about “working harder”? What do you think about “time equals money”? I want to tell you… Success is all about working from a different place and space in your mindset and in your thinking. You have to be intentional with doing the work around your thoughts. [12:50]   Comparison to the person you look up to will cause you to doubt, judge, and self-sabotage your success.   How are you comparing your business, your success, and your life to other entrepreneurs around you? Comparison is a defense mechanism - which you CAN rewire in your brain to instead have the belief that Success is Inevitable. [19:30] If you see yourself falling into these mistakes, it’s okay! It’s not your fault! Your brain’s job is to keep you safe! Your brain is doing what it is wired to do.  Now that you are aware of how your brain is wired, you can do the steps around rewiring it. You can do the work around your thinking and mindset. You can be the creator of your thoughts so you can create the reality and the life you’ve always wanted! Tell me: What are you going to do this week to start rewiring your brain? I’d love to know! Tell me by sending me a message on Facebook or a DM on Instagram. I can’t wait to hear from you!

The stories you tell yourself can either crush YOU or help you crush your goals. Today, I’m helping you shift from crushed, to crushing it! In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast I had the honor of having Pat Flynn interview me on his podcast, Smart Passive Income, and you get to listen in! Pat is a master interviewer and he has me go more in-depth with step-by-step examples of rewriting the stories that limit us than on any other podcast episode I’ve done! (You can listen to his original episode here). If you love tangible examples and step-by-step processes, then you will love this episode! The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   “Epic Success to me means building a life and business that is completely fulfilling”    People can build their businesses to 6, 7, and 8-figures and still focus on their families, health and life. My mission is to see entrepreneurs step in and really define what success looks like so when they get there, they can actually feel successful instead of getting to that place and realize there’s so much more because they left their family and important aspects of their lives behind. Pat says it best “You’ve got to slow to grow.” [6:56] “You have stories and your stories drive your actions.”  If you leave those stories in your subconscious, they will drive your actions. Wouldn’t it make sense to rewrite the stories you have around time, money, success, and failure to drive your actions to what we truly want? Listen in to hear me share the exact steps I take my clients through in the Mind Matrix™ to bring those stories out of the subconscious and rewire those stories and get to the next level of success. [17:57]   So many of us have our thoughts, our stories, and our future on autopilot  when we’ve been gifted this beautiful system of a brain that can literally automate what you want.    The thinking that got you here, will not get you there. Each morning, repeat the true stories where you’re really owning the truth of what you desire. Who do you want to be? Be the person that’s already there so you can easily move into it. [32:07] And how fun is the role playing Pat and I did at the end?! Could you identify with the mind blocks Pat pointed out that so many entrepreneurs struggle with? It really is true - we are not hardwired to be entrepreneurs, which is why my mission is to help thousands of entrepreneurs rewrite their limiting stories and rewire their brains for success! Tell me: What are you going to do this week to start rewiring those limiting beliefs? I’d love to know! Tell me by sending me a message on Facebook or a DM on Instagram. I can’t wait to hear from you! ___________________________________________________________ Speaking of fear…..  One of the biggest fears I hear so many entrepreneurs say is…  “Making money is hard and I don’t have the sales I want”…  Knowing what you believe about money - your Money Mindset - is the 1st key to unlocking the door to your success.  So…  Here’s the key… Take this quiz and find out where you are now and how to get to the next level!

“What if I fail?” “What if I don’t?” “What if I actually showed up?” “What will people think?” “What will people say?” I hear these kinds of questions all the time and it all boils down to one thought, “I’m afraid.” Fear gets in the way of so many decisions, actions, and plans.  It keeps us from living out our calling and purpose.  It keeps us from reaching the people we’re supposed to be showing up for and serving.  It doesn’t have to stay that way though! In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk with Jennifer Allwood about the reality of fear and the power we have to overcome it! Jennifer Allwood started in the DIY world and has now taken that passion and turned it around to teach other people and creatives how to turn their creative hobbies into lucrative online businesses. She teaches that “Fear Is Not The Boss Of You!”  And guess what? It doesn’t have to be! I want you to dive into this podcast episode headfirst and really listen! This is the episode that will help you to start tackling your fear mindset!  The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   “Oftentimes, we find ourselves fighting what we know we’re supposed to be doing because it’s hard or scary.”    “I don’t know” is such a common phrase that people use…. The truth is that we usually know exactly what we’re supposed to do, but we get in our own heads and let fear have a say in our decision making. We have to acknowledge fear, say no to it and then create the thoughts that will lead us to the reality we want to have! [7:36]   “We’re all afraid and feel fear at times, but we have to recognize and be aware of the internal voice that is telling us to stay afraid.”   Feelings are normal and expected and it’s healthy to feel those feelings. We just have to recognize where those feelings and emotions are coming from… Our thoughts. And we have to be actively aware of those thoughts and rewiring them so we can create the life we want to have.  [9:20]   “I think fear of success, fear of failure, fear of being found out is what keeps people from living out their calling and purpose.”   We as people, struggle with failure and comparison. And if you’re a creative person, we struggle with measuring our value based on the money we receive or the sales we make. That keeps us in bondage. I’m not saying that you aren’t going to feel fear, you will. It’s a part of life. I’m saying that you have the power to rise above it, change the way you think, and work through the fear to have the reality you want. [12:18]  Fear does not have to paralyze you! You have the power and ability to rise up and change the way you think about your fear.  You have the ability to create your thoughts to create the reality you want. And you can start now! Tell me: What are you going to do this week to rise above the fear and follow through with your calling? I’d love to know! Tell me by sending me a message on Facebook or a DM on Instagram. I can’t wait to hear from you! Speaking of fear…..  One of the biggest fears I hear so many entrepreneurs say is…  “Making money is hard and I don’t have the sales I want”…  Knowing what you believe about money - your Money Mindset - is the 1st key to unlocking the door to your success.  So…  Here’s the key… Take this quiz and find out where you are now and how to get to the next level!

I have a friend who used to doubt herself all the time.  “This seems too hard.” “There’s too much risk.” “I can’t do it.” It broke my heart because I knew that she was capable of doing big, audacious, hard things… She just needed to get out of her own way, out of her head, and start being her own advocate. Can you relate? If so, it’s okay!  We all get in our own way at times.  But I want so much more for you!  I want to see you succeed in your business and your life.  And I want to help you do it! In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk with Mel Abraham, Tiffany Lee Bymaster, and Colin Boyd about standing firm in certainty and having resilience in shifting circumstances.  These 7 figure entrepreneurs are facing the changing economy head on and recognizing the great opportunities that are in front of them.  They are showing up, impacting lives, and changing the world.  I want you to lean in, really listen, and start creating certainty and clarity in your business.  The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   If we focus on the things that are out of our control, we will feel out of control. -Mel Abraham   Life will throw things at us that we don’t expect. Those things will shock us, and sometimes even knock us down. We have to have the resiliency to get back up, keep fighting, and focus on the right things, putting our situations into perspective. And I know you have it in you to keep going! [2:29]   Get out of your own head, stop dismissing what you’re good at, and keep it simple, real, and authentic! -Tiffany Lee Bymaster   With everything going on, it’s easy to stay in your head and distract yourself with your thoughts and perceptions. But I want to tell you, you have the power to create your own thoughts. And when you are the creator of your own thoughts, you can walk in the confidence of who you are, what you are doing, and who you are serving. You can be the real, authentic, genuine you with so much confidence. [22:40]   Your world will always respond to the certainty you have in you. -Colin Boyd   People aren’t going to find certantiny in the world around them. People will see your confidence and your certainty and people will lean into everything you have because you are standing firm in something. People will desire the thing that you are offering because they sense your confidence and are reassured by your firm certainty. [46:45]  It’s time to start focusing on the things that we have the ability to control. Our mindset and the thoughts we think is a perfect place to start. You can be the creator of your own thoughts.

You don’t wonder for long why this is… You just go with it! And despite the unknown and uncertainty… You are moving, thriving, and truly living! You can have this kind of hope and peace. Your business and your life can thrive and grow in this season.  There is no better time than now to show up, serve the people around you, and create the life and business you’ve always wanted.  You can have this. You can do this.   In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk with Rachel Perry, Jennifer Berson, and Scott Voelker.

The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:   You can have the know-how to deal with your anxieties so that you can show up and serve the right way in your business. -Rachel Perry   Anxieties are a reality of life, with or without the current pandemic. You have permission to feel whatever you are feeling. You are okay and it will be okay! And you don’t have to stay there.. You can learn how to deal with those feelings so you can have the freedom to run your business and your life the way you want!  [2:06]   This is possible.

[11:40]   Just because the idea is already out there doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t do it. -Scott Voelker   It’s important to have someone that you look up to that inspires you. You are that person to someone. People will resonate and like you because of who you are and how you show up and serve. It doesn’t matter if someone out there is doing what you want to do, you will reach a whole group of people that they haven’t been able to reach because of who you are. So just believe in yourself and go for it! [33:40]  Everything around us has settled into a new normal.

There is growth in failure. There is a truth in the fact that success comes from failure. Everyone will fail at one point or another. Embrace it. The important thing is to always get back up, to try something new, and to do it quickly! [40:22]   “There is an importance in slowing down and taking a breath before making a decision.” - Stu McLaren   Whenever you’re face to face with an opportunity or problem, it’s okay to slow down, take a breath, and actually decide. In fact, it’s so needed and will be a game changer in your business, and in your life. Don’t make a decision based on fear, overwhelm, or the “I feel stuck so I have to do something right now” mentality. There is power in slowing down and really deciding. [22:00]   Although you may not know what the future holds, you can be confident with what you’ve done and where it will take you.” - Michael Maidens   In this shifting economy, it’s easy to fall into the overwhelm and fear of the unknown. People can feel stuck and have a lack of confidence. But that doesn’t have to be your standard! Your future will be the product of what you’re doing right now. Have confidence in that because it will take you far! [3:30]  Now more than ever, there is a serious need to be intentional with staying resilient and working towards the future you want.
