My notes from the Challenge Event from Envision U.

Things don’t just happen, they happen just- matt della cruz

After 45 days you figure out who you are and who you need to be.

97% of the country is striving to get there.

We know what to do its a matter of stepping into uncertainty.

We don’t know enough to judge ourselves and we know too much to live in the past.

86400 most important number

Everybody is looking for the solution, create the solution.

Everything we do has an impact.

People who take the “victim” mentality aren’t really the victims. Its the ones who are around them who are victimized.

To change behavior we must change our identity.

when the conscious mind pairs with our imagination and emotion, it becomes unstoppable.

The smarter a person is the more they’ll justify why they are the way they are

Everybody wants to know the strategy. The strategy doesn’t matter if your belief system is out of whack.

We use less than 1% of our potential in the areas of creativity and performance.
Belief is an emotion. Belief is a feeling of certainty about something.

The greatest fear in life is to be in uncertainty.

We say we want $, better relationships, less stress, good health but what we really want is no uncertainty. #envisionu

Before you can get where you want to go you need to know where you are. #envisionu

3 ways to change identity- 1. significant emotional event ie triple bypass

3 ways to change identity- 2 conditioning. Taking time, focus and energy to change behavior. #envisionu

3 ways to change identity- 3 environment and/or peer group- whoever is more certain in the group you’re around has most influence.

2 secrets to success- 1. Be grateful for all you have now. 2. Hang out with successful people.

When you change your belief systems fear naturally follows.

Look forward to the discomfort…that’s how you know change is happening. #envisionu

Mind and body are one.

Words are 7% of effective communication. Tone is 38% and body language is 55%

You could take all the money from the wealthiest people in the world and give it to all the poor. A week later, it would return to the wealthy.

Its not just physical habits its emotional habits we need to change.

Emotional states can be changed in only a few ways movement

We carry ourselves like we’re already dead until we attend an event that allows us to move (sports games, concerts, movies)

Biochemistry is a way to change emotional states.

Emotional states can be changed by physical structure.

The mind will always follow the body.

Workout to not just have a fit body, workout to have a fit mind.

Everything is inside of you, not outside of you.

Ask the “how”, “when” and “what” questions not the “why” questions.

Why questions create gaps…the mind
And the universe abhor gaps.

The quality of your questions equal the quality of your life.

Funny metaphor; I’m busting my ass and there’s already a crack in it.

Watch your affirmations they make you feel things that may or may not be there.

What you focus on you find.
What you focus on grows.
What you focus on seems real.
What you focus on you become.

Obsess about what you want…don’t focus on what you don’t want.

Surround yourself with people who are able support you on your mission to your greater good. #envisionu

We all have patterns. Which ones hold you back? Ask people close to you cuz they can help you ID them. #envisionu

If you attack people’s identity, even unintentionally, they will fight you even if they know you’re right. #envisionu

Having nice things should be consistent with your identity not be a way to define yourself. #envisionu

Every vision board you create is there to help you become something not get something #envisionu

Its not about getting there its about who you become.

This is the cycle of becoming

You start in Inception and everything is great…high energy, great attitude, big effort- unconscious incompetence

unconscious incompetence = you don’t know what you don’t know.

You move into deception- fears sets in and your energy drops. Justify lack of action. Consciously incompetent

Consciously incompetent = you become aware of what you don’t know.

Transformation- the ability to move through…energy back up, excitement returns unconsciously competent

Unconsciously competent = you don’t know what you do know.

Consciously competent = you know what you know.

Imagine if you put the same pressure and timeframe on your baby to walk as you put on yourself to succeed. #envisionu

It doesn’t serve you to be the victim.

One of the most tragic things in life is for someone to pass and you not to see each other in a different way. #envisionu

You beat out 300M other sperm to be you. Are you being the representative for that sample? #envisionu

When raising kids…always speak to their future possibilities and their greatest gifts. #envisionu

Parents can only truly share love with their children when they love themselves. #envisionu
