Why You Don’t Do What You Say You Want

Have you ever wondered why even when you know what to do, you don’t do it? You’re not the only one. Clients come to me all the time feeling like they want to do more than what they’re currently doing. Some are even following through on their plan of action, but they still feel stuck. I know this feeling because I’ve been there. There’s a science-based reason for it and it has nothing to do with a weak strategy or your action. 

What if I told you that I could teach you a formula that you can use every day of your life to help you grow? In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The four steps of the Neuroleadership Growth Code to identify EXACTLY why you don’t do what you want. 
  • The specific steps, in the right order, to create whatever it is you DO. 
  • Why working harder doesn’t always equal success 
  • How your ability to manage your brain and your thoughts is the most valuable resource you will ever possess
  • The importance of examining your thoughts to get new results

This is the methodology I’ve pieced together throughout years of my work. This is so fundamental, practical, and PRECISE you will wonder how you ever got along without it — and why this is taught in NONE of our schools. 

Not a day goes by that I don’t use this process to decide how to approach situations. I also use the Code to help me understand how others are thinking, so I can help them in the most effective way. I am confident this will become a valuable tool in helping you finally meet your goals and feel better today instead of weeks or months from now.
