Primal Potential

The Primal Potential Podcast is about transformation, not information. So many of us KNOW what we need to do to achieve our goals but we aren't DOING it. There's a continuous gap between our INTENTIONS and our ACTIONS. Primal Potential is a TOOL to help you create massive change in your life and ENJOY the journey!

Sometimes we think we can out-smart ourselves. We think that with enough willpower, grit & determination, we can out-smart ourselves. I don't think that's too effective.

I want to help you work WITH yourself, not against yourself. In today's episode, I want to help you conquer inconsistency and self-sabotage but helping you understand why we so often give in and what we can do to be more strategic in our approach.

Today is all about how your subconscious works. In short, it will always look to avoid pain and seek pleasure. This is simply part of how we are wired for survival.

This can work powerfully in our favor or staunchly against us, depending on what we do and how we think.

Unfortunately, most people have, through years of failed diets and giving up on themselves, associated far more pain with the achievement of their goals than pleasure. Today, we're changing that.

Making some straight-forward adjustments to how you think about your goal can accelerate your progress and improve your life!

Conquer Inconsistency

One of the first strategies I talk about in today's episode is identifying your existing pleasure & pain associations. First, establish your goal. Then, free associate all the painful or negative words, thoughts & feelings associated with the achievement of that goal. Then, free associate all of the positive words, thoughts & feelings associated with the achievement of that goal.

Then identify the opposite of your goal and go through the same process - create a list of all the positive and negative associations you have with whatever is opposite your goal.

Intentionally build the list of pleasurable associations related to the achievement & pursuit of your goal.

“You can’t change what’s going on around you until you start changing what’s going on within you” ~ Zig Ziglar

Don't be a part of the problem, be a part of the solution.

Focus as much of your energy as possible on what you can do to make the achievement of your goal positive, exciting and fulfilling. Stop putting energy towards why it's hard, frustrating or negative.
