How To Train Your Brain To Grow Your Business

In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark and Scott talk to Dana Wilde—

Dana is the best-selling author of Train Your Brain: How to Build a Million Dollar Business in Record Time and host of the Mind Aware Show. 

She took two businesses to a million in revenue in just 19 months. Today she talks to us about training our brains to grow our businesses, and it all starts with a simple mantra. By repeating that mantra 20-30 times a day, it opens up your mind’s awareness to see things that you might not have seen otherwise.  

Dana explains that brain scientists estimate that we are walking around in an unconscious state 95% to 99% of the day. And if you can get more aware as little as half a percent of the day, you’re going to start to see tremendous change in your life.  

Dana delves into the reticular activating system—A matchmaker in your head that listens to what you think and talk about and then matches them together, bringing them into your awareness. 

Her 4 step process that helps open your mind to positive change:  

  • Step 1—the most important, is waking up and being aware. 
  • Step 2—deciding what message you want match.
  • Step 3—talking about the current situation in a way that feels good. So you’re changing the script.  
  • Step 4—feel good.  

Does this positive talk and thinking really work? 

Listen in as Dana gives examples of how we already use the reticular activating system in our daily lives now. Plus, she gives us a 72 hour exercise to test her theory.

Scott: Check out the app Lingbe—an app that allows you to practice a language with native speakers anywhere.

Dana: If you focus ONLY on what’s going right in your business, then you will get more of that. If you have a setback or something goes wrong, then acknowledge that for 10 seconds, take the lesson, and move on and put 100% of your focus on what’s going right.

Isn’t it time to create passive income so you can work where you want, when you want and with whomever you want?
