The average person opens up Instagram a hundred and fifty times a day
But that's by design. Like you said companies probably know from product design
They're paying or putting fortunes and to understand why we do what we do and a variable reward
don't have a me absolve all that's
Exactly. And so if you're picking up the phone the first thing in the morning, the challenge is number reasons
This is a challenge. First of all, there there are these four primary brainwave states
Um beta is what you and I are in right now
We're awake Delta is when you're fast asleep in between those two states theta and alpha are
extremely important brainwave states for learning
So theta is the state right in and out of sleep data is the state
That we call creativity when you are your most creative
or you're
Usually it's coming because you're in this data state and you know this when you're in and out of sleep or you're close to like
You're so deep your mind goes and you come up with ideas. You know, what put you in a data state our showers
You ever noticed like when you're in the shower you come up with some of your your best ideas and your brain kind of drift
It does because you're in that brainwave state
So a big part of my work is taking the invisible making it visible
Like I always when I do these demonstrations
I always tell people that I I do it because I want you to see that there's a method behind the magic
and when somebody does something that's extraordinary in athletics in
education and technology with the human body
There's always a trail, you know, his genius leaves Clues above theta though is the state called alpha
Right right below beta where you're most aware and awake
Alpha is the state of a learning
Accelerated learning is the state of relaxed awareness
This is the state we go into when we meditate because your critical mind is set aside and you just absorb information
Unconsciously, you know what puts you into an alpha state television
You ever noticed that if somebody's watching the game or somebody's watching their favorite TV show and you're trying to have a conversation with them
And they literally are entranced
They don't hear you because the television programming which might be an interesting word, you know programming and putting people into a trance
But that's the Alpha state. That's where formation is. Just going inside your mind
so we train people how to learn languages faster and learn facts better by putting them into an alpha state a
Relaxed state of awareness and we can do that by by designed and people don't realize this and this is the whole thing
I really think this should have been taught back in school because school was a great place to learn
what to learn math history science Spanish important subjects on what to learn
But how many classes were on how to learn does that even exist is dead?
Know that that's why I'm saying like how many classes were on how to think critically?
how to make the decisions how to solve problem how to focus and concentrate
how to read how to read faster how to remember more right even if they teach you 3 R's in school reading
writing arithmetic
But what about remembering? What about recall?
what about retention right Socrates says there is no learning without remembering and that's really the
Basis of it all but I would say that
Knowing you're in this alpha theta state first thing in the morning. You're very suggestible, right?
And if the first thing you're picking up is your phone then that really is what rewiring our brain for two things
The dangers that's gonna really decrease your level of productivity and performance number one
Its training you to be distracted and we talked about that every like share comment
Everything is just making you just pay attention everything else and rewiring your brain
So when you're having a conversation with somebody you can't even focus because you've trained your brain to do otherwise and that's why
Mindfulness is so important, you know
Whether it's meditation or something else
Because it's not that I don't meditate every single day just to be at peace and and be in the Zen
State I do it because it's a mental exercise. It improves my cognitive capabilities
Meaning that when my mind goes somewhere else. That's the opportunity. So I pull it back with my breath or visualization
I built that muscle because here's here's really the the basis of my work is really about taking nouns and turning them into verbs
So what do I mean by that?
It's it's like so many people they wake up and say oh
I
Hope I have energy today or I have motivation saying things that they have right?
I have creativity so I could write today or make videos or I have
Memory or I focus or concentration
Those aren't things you have those are things you do and so you don't have love you do loving things
You don't have energy you do things that give you energy just like that's that applies same thing with learning. You don't have focus
There's a process for doing focus. You don't have a memory. There's steps to improve your memory or to remember things better
There's not creativity is not something you have. There's actually a process for creativity
So you should never suffer from writer's block or anything else like that because because that's where if you're if you don't understand
How you work when I was talking about self awareness and understanding ourselves, you know
I think if somebody wants to improve their their esteem the self same overnight just study it study your brain
like you'll get a boost of confidence and pride like instantly because it is the most incredible I
Don't even know what to call it a device a supercomputer what in the whole universe, you know?
It's not just about going out to to Mars and all these other places
I'm gonna I want to go in here because this controls what
Everything our careers our income our health our relationships, you know, whether or not you get, you know complete, you know
We were talking about this before our conversation here would have you know?
When you're training for Ironman and triathlons everything else is how much of it is mental like we know like everyone knows what to do
But do they do what they know because common sense is not common practice and it's a myth that knowledge is power
Not knowledge is it has a potential to be power?
It only becomes power when we use it when we apply it
Like people think they should get points for buying books and sitting on the shelf and it just sits there and becomes like shelf help
Not self-help, right or somebody will go and learn something
I listen to a podcast like this or show or they'll go to a conference
They'll pay all this money
But they don't do anything with what they learn and part of it also is because they forget it, you know
Everyone knows there's a learning curve, but there's also forgetting curve
Did you know like the forgetting curve says that if you learn something once within 48 hours?
80% of it is gone
80% so you listen to a show you watch something you
On YouTube you go to a conference
You read a book
Within two days the majority of it's gone because nobody trains us how to have that's why the memory is so important, you know
And so this first thing don't touch your phone cuz it's training you to be distracted
The second thing is it's training you rewiring your brain to be reactive
Reactive meaning that you're in this relaxed state of awareness when you first wake up you pick up your phone
You get one text
That with bad news or one voicemail one email and you know this we've all still happen to us
You're in a bad mood for the rest of your day
Because you're so impressionable you're in that hypnotic state and it affects you and you can never have a quality life
You know with that
You know and be the best version of ourselves be I elite mental performer or high performer when you're responding and reacting
everybody else
You know
my friend Brendon Burchard says an inbox is nothing but a convenient organizational system for other people's agenda for your life and
How can you have vision for your life like for me the night before?
Like I have I did a whole episode on my morning routine like ten things
I do every morning that jumpstart my brain and I also have an evening one-hour routine to get into sleep to maximize my sleep sleep
Is so very important to be able to do but one of the processes I do besides, you know
blackout curtains and cold and temperatures and breath and stuff
meditation is I don't touch a screen right because it creates blue light and you and most people should know this every you know,
The screen on your laptop your phone everything else
Emits, this blue light which inhibits melatonin production which helps you to relax and go to sleep sand those screens
But the other thing I do is I write down the three things
I want to complexed day personally and the other three are professionally
so now when I wake up
I have a vision for my life
Like I'll this is a win today
If I just get these three things done personally and three things professionally and when it comes to my phone
I don't touch my phone until I get at least one thing done and that's my that's my test
you know if I could just do that and it's not always perfect, you know, but it's about progress right because practice makes
Progress alright and there's never gonna be a perfect and I think people need to find what works for them
But I would say again to step out is not
Don't trust yourself as the expert
Instead of somebody else and test it, you know
Maybe for one week
Keep your phone outside your bedroom for just one week and don't touch it for the first hour a day and spend the first hour
Day being a thermostat
Vomiter because a thermometer what it what's a function it reacts to the environment and that's a--that's a kind of crappy way to like live
Not that we don't we do react in by we react to the weather, right?
we react to how clients treat us we react but to the degree we're happy is that we have the locus that
Have the the location of control inside, right?
all the studies show that the happiest people are the ones that feel like they have the control over their or their happiness and now
Put it to somebody else a person or a place or something going the economy or politics or anything, right?
So a thermometer reacts the environment but a thermostat is different. What is that function?
It sets the environment it sets a goal is set the temperature and then the environment raises to it
And so I feel like anyone who's attracted to your work or to mine
Their thermostats because they have a growth mindset because if they thought things were fixed
They wouldn't watch something like this because what's the point? It's just all predestined and it's set and we can't grow
You
    You must  Log in  to get the function.
