If you ask a room full of people with jobs why they go to work, what do you think their answer would be? Probably something like, “To pay the bills… because I have to… because I have an addiction to living indoors with plumbing…”
If you ask entrepreneurs why they work, what will THEY say? Probably something like, “Because I love my business… I’m doing what I love… I’m on a mission…”
But pose the question differently and see what happens. Ask those same entrepreneurs privately, if they won the Powerball and a got a $25M windfall, what are the first 5 things they would do… and one of the top items on that list is ALWAYS “get rid of this business.”
In this episode, we’re going to get to the root of this problem and help you live a more authentic life starting right now.

Recently I’ve been re-reading the classic book Psycho-Cybernetics by Dr. Maxwell Maltz. Dr. Maltz popularized the idea of self-image and its effect on performance. There's a difference between self-esteem and self-image. Your self-esteem is how you appraise your value, your self-image is simply the picture you have of yourself.
Who do you think you are?
There's an ancient proverb that says, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” Jesus said, “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” I believe what He was saying is, what you say reveals who you think you are.
Jesus said, “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” I believe what He was saying is, what you say reveals who you think you are.
If you consistently find yourself behaving in a way that you don’t want to behave… you must look closely at your “secret identity.” You’ll find that somewhere you hold conflicting views that cannot exist in the same person. You are at war with yourself, and you are at war with reality.
The masses lead lives of quiet contradictions. That is the pattern of the ordinary behavior of the world. It’s why the Apostle Paul wrote “Don’t be conformed to the pattern of this world, but be TRANSFORMED by the renewing of your mind…”
We renew our minds by thinking different thoughts. How do you do this?
- Notice the feelings that alert you to internal conflicts.
- Trace your thought backwards and find the place where you find two conflicting ideas.
- Resolve the conflict.
- Establish a new thought that is not in conflict.
- Reinforce the “trigger” and the “thought pattern.”
In this episode, we do a deep dive on all of this…trust me when I say that you don’t want to miss this.

Let's pretend you won the New Life lottery…what would be the first things you would do? Most entrepreneurs, if they told the truth, would just get rid of their business.
Why? Because they feel trapped by their business and they go to work in their business for the same reason that people go to work at a job, to pay the bills.
