Turn Your Failures Into Wins

Turn Your Failures Into Wins

September 26, 2021

Today I’m talking about dealing with your failures and how you can turn them into wins. The episode is about how you view your accomplishments and how do you define failure. The fact is, you can change your thoughts in such a way that you’ll feel better about yourself, feel more confident and become more productive. All this will help you become the person you want to be. Today’s episode is called “Turn Your Failures Into Wins”. The steps you’re taking to become more mindful, including listening to this podcast, will help you gradually learn how to make the changes you need to make so you can deal with your inner bully.

Your Inner bully is a pattern of thoughts that can feel like an enemy has set out to sabotage your life. Some people feel like these thoughts are beyond control. Have you had thoughts that tell you you’re not successful enough, or not smart enough? Maybe you’ve had thoughts that tell you you’re a loser or a failure?

A Recent Endorsement

One of my clients just finished her coaching sessions and she sent me this endorsement telling you about her success with hypnosis:
“My name is Danielle Genenz. I’ve struggled with my inner bully, low self-esteem and lack of self worth for years. My relationships with family members have always been difficult and I’ve gone long periods of time without speaking with them. Since I’ve had the honor to work with Bruce Langford on hypnotherapy, my life has changed for the better. I’ve been able to establish more boundaries in my relationships, which has allowed me to renew a connection I’ve not had in a long time with my family. I’m able to talk with them without constant confrontations and tensions and we are now able to communicate on a weekly basis. I’ve also developed a sense of calmness that has been missing from my life. Now my battle with negative self talk has eased significantly and I feel more freedom to do things I enjoy without the constant burden of emotional stress. Hypnotherapy has also helped me to develop more interest in socialization and I’m better able to give more time to myself. So once you are ready to do the work, I would really recommend this program to anybody who wants to improve their life and give themselves the gift of having more peace and confidence. Bruce has made all the difference in my life and I know he can for you as well.”

Effect on Emotions

  • I think that has given me more perspective and acceptance. I think rather than getting lost in it and making decisions from where I am, it's honouring exactly where I am.
  • Feeling the feelings and being really connected and tuned in to them, and also trusting all paths and knowing clarity is always on the other side.
  • It has given me perspective and presence in a way that I've been able to move through a little bit more sustainably.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • It's part of my meditation practice and part of Kundalini.
  • I also always am inspired to connect to breath work with my partner who is always taking a deep breath and letting it out and that is how to reconnect to the moment.

Bullying Story

  • It can be pretty vulnerable to put yourself out there in the world we live in right now. So much of my work is putting myself out there all the time.
  • Mindfulness has been a really necessary tool because I haven't faced so much of this; crazy messages and such. A lot of people around me are receiving this all the time so I think that it's been a real lesson in just having perspective and not getting lost and taking it all personally.
  • I can just step back and see it for what it is. My biggest lesson is putting myself out there but being grounded enough in myself that I'm able to handle things as they come and see them for what they are.

Is The 4-Day Workweek Feasible?

  • Some countries are shifting to the 4-day workweek. The four day work week is a step that we're seeing, that for society is actually happening.
  • We see countries like New Zealand, Spain, and in Iceland a study just came out where 2500 people did a four day workweek. Kickstarter is switching over to it. Even small community colleges like Kalamazoo Valley Community College in Michigan switched over to it five years ago and they are saving millions of dollars on air conditioning costs in the summer.
  • So we see that there are all these business applications for the 4-day work week.

Iceland Study Details

  • It was a multi-year study of 2,500 people in tons of different industries. It wasn't just automotive workers or teachers, it was across the board in a number of different sub-sections of society. They found that productivity was up in four days. They found that creativity and happiness was up. An unexpected outcome was that their health outcomes were better. They were less stressed and less anxious.

Life Challenges

  • In 2012 it all hit the fan at once. My daughter had heart surgery and as soon as the doctors said she was good and healthy, two weeks later I was diagnosed with cancer. My best friend's wife had breast cancer, my grandma died, it was just one of those terrible years. We all have one at some point unfortunately.
  • I was working at a community college at the time, full time. I had my side counseling practice and had just started a podcast, The Practice of the Practice podcast. So I had all these things going on, and this little baby girl who'd just had heart surgery.
  • I started to think about my forty-hour a week job. Really, it wasn't one of those jobs that I hated. I had autonomy, I had influence, my boss was amazing, so it was even harder, because it paid well and I had a great job. I could have stayed there for my whole career.
  • But the central question I asked myself was, ‘would I rather stay and never know what I have inside of me, or would I rather leave and potentially fail. And to me that was such a central question. I decided I'd rather leave and potentially fail and if I failed I could always come back to the counseling world.
  • So I left my full-time job and started Practice of the Practice podcast. Over the years I found that I was saying the same thing over and over. It was around time and the best use of my time.
  • At a certain point you need to stop taking out the trash. To have someone else do that so you can focus on those higher level things in your business and in your life.

Effect on Emotions

  • Using mindfulness to handle my emotions has been a key skill to learn and to fine-tune and to grow and build that muscle.
  • In all areas, whether in business, or getting a coffee at the local Starbucks when they get your name wrong and make you wait twenty minutes or whatever it is, these are all opportunities for our emotions and our thoughts to get the better of us.
  • Mindfulness allows me to have a non-personal approach in all these situations which allows for much less stress and much more calm and peace.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • I learned to breathe by playing the Japanese flute. What I didn't know was that there's a profound ability to improve your piano playing through proper breathing.
  • You wouldn't think so because you're not generating the sound with your breath like a wind instrument, but it turns out, if you breathe properly, it comes through the music.

Bullying Story

  • I grew up in a neighborhood of Brooklyn that was a little rough and I did get bullied by locals. They stole my bike one time but no physical harm was done.
  • As a kid, mindfulness is a great tool because ultimately it's about how we interpret those moments. Mindfulness is a powerful tool that allows a child who has the skill, to frame the experience in a way that they understand that it's not about them.
  • For the one doing the bullying, we know that bullying is done as a result of a deep insecurity.

2 Words To Redirect Your Life

2 Words To Redirect Your Life

September 12, 2021

If there were 2 words that could shift the direction of your life, immediately aiming your own personal GPS exactly where you wanted, what do you think they’d be? Speaking of the direction of our lives, it’s easy for our GPS to develop a short circuit. That happens when we don’t program it right, or when the circuitry becomes scrambled. Our GPS is programmed by a number of factors; by what our conscious mind puts into it, what our subconscious mind puts into it, and what all the noise from the

Our conscious mind protects us against perceived danger, and our past experiences all play a role in creating our personal story about what is dangerous to us. Trouble is, many of those personal stories are buried in our subconscious mind and we aren’t aware of how all that information is influencing our actions.

Veering Off Course?

Have you stopped to examine what you really want your life to look like? No, I mean really stopped, taken a pause from your activities, from your busyness, from your day-to-day life to allow yourself to go deep into that place where you allow every fiber of your being to relax into what you absolutely want for yourself.

Maybe when you start to get to the place, you’ll realize you’re living your life according to somebody else’s recipe. Someone in your life now or in your past impacted your thinking. Maybe even without knowing it, they said something, or did something that sent your inner GPS veering off course, attempting to take you someplace you don’t even want to go to.

Where Is My Place?

So have you decided what those two words are that can help you change everything? Your anxiety will begin to melt. You will become focused, you will feel a certain calmness that you’ve been longing for.

The reason you’ve veered off course has to do with your self-value. Somewhere along the line you started to question your own personal value. You started to wonder why you’re here and you struggled with the question of ‘how do I fit in’. Where is my place here in the universe?

How to Get On The Right Track

Does this resonate with you? Are you burying your insecurities? There are lots of ways to bury what’s bothering us. Some of us use alcohol or marijuana, some use food, some of us are workaholics. What’s your method of burying your pain? How do you get through the challenges that are slapping you in the face?

So many of you have reached out to me and I’ve now had the honor of working with a lot of you, Mindful Tribe. You know who you are. I know who you are. You are special to me, and I know that you know exactly what I’m talking about today.

These two words are words I’ve talked about in the past. They will help you get on the right track.

Listen Up

To hear the two words I'm talking about, listen to this episode. Once you know the two words, you'll discover they will lead you to the process of letting go. Letting go is something we’ve talked a lot about on Mindfulness Mode. Doing the exercise I talk about on the episode will help you let go. It will teach you something about yourself and where you really want to be in this world. It will help reveal where you want to be headed.

Two simple words that can help you get back on course. Those words can help you redirect your life so you’re headed in the direction that’s right for you.

If you’re like me, sometimes you think things have to be complicated to have value. That is definitely not true. Some of the most valuable lessons in life are the simplest.

  • One of my friends I met in Hawaii who always had this peaceful calmness about her.

Effect on Emotions

  • Mindfulness has helped me tremendously. I don't take things as personally and I certainly don't get caught up in them because I just remember that time passes and things change and I just have to be present with what is and I'll get through to the other side.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • Breathing is a huge part of my mindfulness practice. I am always breathing. Breath has helped me through the most intense panic attacks and periods in my life. Even before this show I took some time to just breathe and settle into the space.

Bullying Story

  • I always had a bit of a mindfulness practice in me. When I was in Middle School,  I can remember being in situations that were hard or painful, and understanding that this is only a moment in time and that sometime I am going to be on the other side, so I can focus on, this is ending as it's happening.
  • I feel like I took that with me through a lot of my life.
  • So when it came to people who were cruel or unkind or teased or spread rumors, it's not that it didn't affect me, it certainly did, I was much younger and much less emotionally intelligent.
  • I just had this knowing that this is not all there is. This moment, these people, this school, this neighborhood. I just was always aware this world is so big, even if I didn't quite know where I fit in it yet. I think that really helped me tremendously.
  • I wish I would have had more mindfulness practices for sure around managing my emotions.

Calm Your Rage

Calm Your Rage

September 5, 2021

Do you experience sudden outbursts of anger that happen when you least expect it? Have you noticed that you feel extremely angry towards certain people or certain types of people? Maybe there's someone in your life that gets under your skin and yet there doesn't seem to be any rational reason for it. That has been the case with me at various times in my life. I was a teacher for a long time and I would notice lots of different personality traits in my students. Sometimes fellow teachers would say things that would irritate me and I'd wonder why I'd feel so much irritation as a result of their comment.

The word rage never came to mind when I thought about my reaction to certain situations, but now that I've learned more about the conscious and subconscious mind and how our minds work, I realize that there was a level of rage that was gurgling and bubbling just below the surface.

Certain personalities or specific words or phrases would potentially case that gurgling rage to erupt. Sometimes the eruption was minor and no one else would even be aware of it. Occasionally I would do or say something that was out of place and I'd wonder why that happened.

What is trauma?

Now I realize that what triggered my rage was something related to an early trauma in my life. So when I say trauma, I want to be clear that an event that was traumatizing to me, may seem like a nothing event to you. I used to think that traumas were always events like a car accident, a house fire, sexual abuse, or a robbery.

A quick online search tells us that, “In general, trauma can be defined as a psychological, emotional response to an event or an experience that is deeply distressing.”

Another definition says that, “Trauma is the lasting emotional response that often results from living through a distressing event.” It goes on to say, “Experiencing a traumatic event can harm a person’s sense of safety, sense of self, and ability to regulate emotions and navigate relationships. Long after the traumatic event occurs, people with trauma can often feel shame, helplessness, powerlessness and intense fear.” You may have experienced trauma and don’t even know it.

Do You See Your Angry Self?

Trauma can take the form of abductions, terrible invasions of privacy, sexual abuse, violent attacks; all kinds of awful things happen to people in the world. Some of it is remembered and some isn't.

Generally speaking, our subconscious mind has the ability to remember and categorize vast amounts of information including incidents, words spoken to us, even smells, sounds, images, sensations, and emotions.

Only a minuscule amount of this information makes it to the conscious mind. So much of it we are not able to recall. It seems to be lost forever. Even though it seems to be lost, sometimes this information comes out in dreams and sometimes is triggered by certain random things that might surprise you. Maybe a brief musical phrase from a song, a certain aroma, or the face of an innocent stranger.

Some people who experience terrible traumas are unable to remember them at all, or maybe they just remember random bits and pieces. Traumatic events are usually not remembered sequentially, with a beginning, middle, and end. If anything is remembered, usually it's short, abbreviated chunks that can show up as memory flashes. Some people are bewildered at what these apparently isolated memories are all about.

A lot of people are confused when these memory flashes trigger anger and rage that they didn't even know was there, beneath the surface. All of a sudden you're exploding at someone, or you're ranting and raving about something. Maybe you hear yourself screaming and yelling at someone and it almost feels like you're witnessing another person doing the shouting. Somehow you know it's you, but you feel completely out of control.

More Mainstream

An interesting thing about hypnosis is that instructions and suggestions can affect later behaviors of a subject. A friend of mine was hypnotized and it was suggested that he would want to drink glasses and glasses of ice water. As a result, he found himself craving ice water day after day; something that hadn’t been part of his life at all before he was hypnotized.

The fact that hypnosis can help you get to the root of your anger, your pain, and your rage, as I mentioned in the title of today’s episode, is what is making hypnosis more and more mainstream.

Lessen Anxiety

You may have heard of someone who successfully went to a hypnotist to quit smoking or to lose weight. The results are effective 95 to 98 per cent of the time and positive results are usually related to how much the subject wants to change and how trusting they are of the person doing the hypnosis.

I’ve seen this to be true. My most trusting clients, and my clients who have the greatest desire to change their behaviors, have been very successful.

If you are hoping to lessen your anxiety and stress, hypnosis is a great tool. If you would like to become more calm, more content in your life, and, as I say on Mindfulness Mode, reach new heights of calm, focus, and happiness, then hypnosis is an effective tool that is quicker than most methods and a lot more inexpensive too.

You Are Appreciated

I sincerely hope you’re not suffering through terrible rage and anger, but if you are, you can move forward toward a better life. A life where your anger is under control, a life where you are enjoying the results of your hard work and your accomplishments.

Thanks for listening to this episode about calming your rage. It’s great to sit here and share this with you, just as if you were here in the room sitting right here with me. Have a great rest of your day.

Bullying Story

  • I was terribly bullied. It took me most of my 20's and early 30's to get over it.
  • I grew up in an environment where my dad wasn't very well. He had narcissistic personality disorder. As a result of that, I didn't always have a role model to learn socialization from and to learn how to interact with other kids.
  • Because of that I tended to get bullied. Kids picked on me and hit me and I didn't know how to respond. I had to learn to stand up for myself.
  • I always remember how me and my brother did this. We found this thing called Thai Boxing. It's full contact. We took my mom to meet the Thai instructors. The guy completely charmed my mom and so we were allowed to go to full contact Thai Boxing.
  • I learned to stand up by learning to defend myself physically. But it took a long time for the wounds to be repaired.

Use Movement To Let Go

Use Movement To Let Go

August 29, 2021

After coaching many clients, it is obvious that the most difficult challenge for most people is not developing certain skills, or becoming more focused, it is the skill of letting go. Many of the people I work with come to realize that what's holding them back is an inner bully, or a mindset that is making it impossible for them to move forward. In many cases, this mindset served them in a positive way at one point in the their life, but as time went by, that same mindset no longer serves them.

That inner bully originally protected them in a way that was critically important at the time. In other words, they may not have survived through their challenge back then if it hadn't been for this particular thought process.

Years later, it became obvious that this inner dialogue was no longer helping them to move forward in life. Once my client came to this realization, then the burning question became obvious. “Now that I know my problem, how do I move forward? How do I let go of that particular way of thinking?”

If you're a regular listener of Mindfulness Mode, you'll know that I refer to this negative thought pattern as your inner bully. But how do you let this thought pattern go?

Do Both Minds Agree?

If you're like me, you might have difficulty letting go of books that are accumulating on your shelves, clothes you haven't worn lately, or even tools that you no longer use. Letting go of thoughts that are holding you back can be difficult in a similar way.

First, you have to have a clear understanding of the mindset that is holding you back. Once you gain that understanding, you have to make sure your desire to let go is genuine. Does you conscious mind and your subconscious mind both agree that this mindset is no longer serving you?
Listen to the episode for more details on how to use movement to let go.

Most Influential Person

Effect on Emotions

  • Mindfulness has helped me to take a step back and not have knee jerk reactions and just have a better perspective and be a better person.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • When I remember to breathe, it's very helpful.

Suggested Resources

Bullying Story

  • When you publish a book you'll get either trolls or just people who don't like your book. It can be very disconcerting and frustrating. Sometimes they write things and you think they are writing a review of a different book.
  • I had this happen recently with a book and I really think it was a competitor trying to sabotage the book. Had this person been much more mindful, they would have thought, this doesn't serve anyone reading this review. It's not going to make up their mind to buy the book or not buy the book. It just is nasty.
  • I think if a lot of people were more mindful, they wouldn't think so much about competition, but they'd come from more of an abundant mindset.
