“There’s a piece of wisdom that says life is the hardest teacher because she gives you the test before the lesson. That’s failure. Failure is how you learn. Failure is a necessary component of success…It is not possible to really succeed without failing first.”- Dr. Chantal M. Gagnon
Thanks to an assist from Dr. Chantal M. Gagnon at PsychCentral®, in this episode of BioTrust Radio, Shawn and Tim reveal 5 Ways to Break Free from Mental Barriers. The next time you feel fear creeping in, it won’t hold you back!
Here’s what you can expect to learn in this episode:
- What’s more important for weight loss: cardio, weight training, or a combination of both
- Why the first step to overcoming mental barriers is changing your mindset about failure
- Why you need to do the thing you’re afraid of — called exposure therapy — to help you break through mental barriers
- Why the first literal step to overcoming mental barriers is getting up and doing something — just put one foot in front of the other — because if you don’t try, you’ll never achieve your goal
- Why you need to get comfortable with uncertainty and use it as a tool to prepare yourself and approach mental barriers more objectively
- Why you need to recognize that you are both imperfect and enough; why the paradigm shift to “perfect sucks” is crucial to abolishing mental barriers
- Why you need to learn to ask for help — and offer help to others — if you want to truly break through mental barriers
We’ll discuss these topics and much, much more! And how about you? What kind of mental barriers do you struggle with? What tools do you use to overcome mental barriers? We’d love to hear from you!
