Hi all and welcome to Mindset Coaching Academy podcast. My name is Lindsay Wilson today is mental Monday where we take one tip, tool, or technique that you can implement in your life today or this week to up your mental game. Now, our certification is opening soon, opening in early 2023. And I wanted to talk about the story that might be in your head about being a certified coach.
Now, if you don't want to be a certified coach, you don't want to be a mindset coach. That's okay, this episode is still relevant. But I am going to talk about how I see so many people wanting to be something and in this case, it's a certified mindset coach. And they have a story in their head about whether that is possible.
And in particular, whether that being a mindset coach, or whatever that is for you, whether it's possible for them. Now, in this episode, I want you to only become aware of what the story is in your head about that thing that you say that you want.
And for some of you, it might even not be the thing that it might not even be the thing that you say that you want, it also might be the thing that you secretly want. In other words, there may be something in your life that you want, but you won't allow yourself to say it out loud, maybe not even to yourself.
So you may have this sort of hidden dream that you haven't articulated, that you haven't brought to the surface that you haven't taken any action on because you automatically have the story about whether it's possible for you. And again, we're not necessarily in these five minutes, we're not going to argue completely what that thing is.
But I want you to bring those dreams to the surface and recognize if the reason that you're hiding them is because you don't want to be disappointed, because you don't want to risk your ego, because it feels scary and uncomfortable. And again, it's because of this story that you have layered on top of this thing that is blocking you from going for it. And often.
Not always, but often the story looks something like this or sounds something like this. It is not possible for me to be a mindset coach and make money as a mindset coach, because now fill in the blank. It's because you don't have a degree, it's because you don't have enough time. It's because you have young kids at home. It's because you have a day job.
It's because you don't have the money to invest. It's because you need your debt, you think you need your doctorate, and there's a story that you're telling yourself in order to block yourself from getting this thing. And again, I'm talking about mindset coach, it could be anything, what is the story that you are telling yourself to justify not taking action for this thing.
Now, again, this thing may be something that you actually want, it also may be something that you have not let yourself want. Okay, it's deep, buried, buried, buried deep inside, and you haven't let it come to the surface because of this dang story.
Now, again, we're not going to do all this work on the story, I just want you to be aware of it. And this is the final thought that I want you to have about the story. It's not true. That doesn't mean that there aren't parts of it that are true.
But I want you to recognize that it is a story it is not fact. It is not written in stone somewhere. It is a story that you have told yourself. I just want to offer you that. That there is another story that you could also layer on top. That would change things. Okay? Your story is not fact. Alright, guys, mindset coach Academy podcast, mental Monday. Let's do this.
