Hi all and welcome to the Mindset Coach Academy Podcast.
My name is Lindsey Wilson and it is Mental Monday. You guys, I just checked out the podcast reviews, which I do every so often. I mean, I guess it's a little bit, I don't know, checking to see how many likes you have.
On the other hand, I mean, we spend a lot of time on the podcast, so I do want to kind of keep my ear to the ground and make sure people are liking it. So I do check every once in a while and I see some familiar names sometimes pop up and this one is Elbow 20. I think I know who this is. I really, and she says, I got five stars from her.
So thank you. I really enjoyed Lindsay's podcast. There are so many helpful and amazing nuggets that I've learned. She always has a way of challenging you.
I like Mindset Mondays and the guest interview she has would highly recommend. Thank you Elbow 20. I love that.
That's so awesome. I do love hearing for you guys. So if you haven't left a review, I would love to hear from you. You can go review it wherever you listen to your podcasts.
I know Apple makes it really easy, but I think you can on Spotify and all the places. We'd sure appreciate it. Alright, today what I want to talk about is the difference between the discipline of believing versus the discipline of action. Let me say that again. There is a difference between the discipline of believing in something and the discipline of action. What do I mean by that? Some of us, and I say this to myself with love, can get really disciplined about action. Like, tell me what to do and I'll frickin' do it.
Just give me a list, give me a framework, give me some steps, and I will knock it out. Which is great. A lot of us have that really helpful, good thing to have as a human that wants to accomplish things in the world. Good job.
Good job. But what some of us, and again I'm speaking to myself, I've learned this more now, but some of us forget to take the time and the discipline of believing first. So what do I mean by this? What I mean is that we can take all the action that we want. We can stay really, really busy.
We can quote unquote work really hard. And if the underlying belief is that, I'm just not sure this is going to work out. I don't know if I have what it takes. I don't know, will this ever work?
Shouldn't I be further along by now? If those are the thoughts driving the actions, the actions aren't going to work. They just won't. We'll either stop doing them. or we'll waste so much energy trying to white knuckle our way to continuing doing them, or we'll do the wrong actions, or we'll do them in the wrong way, or there's just gonna be something missing. And something missing doesn't sound like a lot, but as we all know, the difference between like, oh, a lot of things in life between winning and losing is often like marginal, right? It's like one shot going in versus missing. It's one sale versus not getting it.
It's one launch versus not. I mean, like, and that multiplied by days and days and months and months and years and years, it really adds up. Because if we are not keeping the belief alive and working our discipline and our willpower towards believing, we don't get that momentum, that positive momentum forward, and then the doubts really start creeping in. Okay? So this is Mental Monday. So I'm just going to give you one little thing, and that is take some of the time that you are spending on action and just move it over to belief. The discipline of believing. Now you may think, well, what does that actually look like? That can look like the braver, which is what we teach, but really just any kind of visualization of your goals. That can look like future pacing journaling, which means writing your future as if it's happening now, which means like, I am a successful entrepreneur that makes a certain amount of money. This is what I do with my days.
This is how I act and dress and look, and this is what I do. So that kind of journaling, it can be writing down your best thoughts about yourself. It can be thought work, thought shifting, which is what we teach in our certification. So it can be a number of things, but it's probably going to be you being quiet. It's probably going to be you writing or breathing or meditating or walking or something very simple. So on the action side, we're busy, busy, busy, busy, busy, checking things off our to-do list. Again, diverting some of that time to the discipline and the work of believing. And again, that belief work is probably going to be quieter.
And you're going to have to use that discipline to discipline yourself to do it. Because it's not going to feel so like I got this big thing done today. And yet it is the crucial work. It is the discipline of believing that's going to get us far. And it's going to make that action line all the actions that we take so much more effective.
So take a little bit of your action time, put it towards the discipline of belief, and you'll be well on your way. All right, guys. So that's my thought for today. That's our Mental Monday. We'll see you again next week.
