In this episode, Dave is excited to welcome Leigh Bundy. Leigh is the founder of Team Beast Mode Australia, a unique firm that works with individuals to help them unleash their true potential. Leigh has an interesting story. A number of years ago, Leigh went through an experience that caused him to lose almost everything, including over $850,000, and force him to move from his penthouse apartment back home with his parents. His life spiraled out of control and he hit rock bottom.
As Dave says in the podcast, many times in people’s lives, things happen for a reason and in this case, hearing Leigh’s story, he had to go through what he went through to meet the person that changed his life. This person, who has become Leigh’s soul mate, Regan, taught lee how to take control of his emotions and turned Leigh on to learning about psychology and the mind. Leigh immersed himself into studying the power of the mind and became a Master NLP practitioner, Master of Hypnosis, a Success Strategist, and studied spiral dynamics.
He and Regan went on to found Beast Mode in 2013, created a reality TV show called “Through the Eyes of the Beast,” and now work throughout Australia, New Zealand, and India and Indonesia.
Leigh talks about his journey and about how he would get ahead and he would lapse because he didn’t understand the mind and how it impacted his daily life and success.
Leigh discusses how he learned about programming the subconscious to be “unconscious competent” which is when you subconscious has been trained through repetition to react in the way you want it to further your success or get you what you want.
The difference between when say you believe something and when you actually program your mind to do and be that person that you want to manifest in your life.
At the 6 min mark Leigh talks about his tipping point where he finally made a change and the catalyst for it. Interestingly, the catalyst that made him to say “enough was enough” was the pain that he was causing for himself and his loved ones. He simply could not take it anymore and lifted himself out his self-imposed downward spiral.
At the 8 min market, Leigh begins to go in depth on the subconscious. As he says, your subconscious leads to your thoughts, your thoughts lead to your feelings, your feelings lead to your behaviors, and then your behaviors lead to your actions. Your programming is like a computer processor.
Leigh discusses NLP and what he calls “pre-framing” your thoughts and teaching your mind what the positive learning is to take away from an event because your subconscious can’t hold onto a positive or negative at the same time.
Liegh talks about how the mind naturally will hold on more to negative emotional events in your life and your job is to re-program it with a positive set of thoughts for those events. He talks about the importance of making things a daily routine and how that routine becomes habit and begins to manifest in your life.
At the 11:50 mark, Leigh gives his formula for how he trains his subconscious. The first thing he does in the morning is what he calls “Success Priming.” This is typically done while moving on something like a walk where you visualize your goals, understanding what you are thinking, feeling, etc. You then “prime” your mind with the positive thoughts of where you want and will be going. Then 2 hours before bed, Leigh does what he calls “A Results Creator.” This is not a “to do” list as much as it is getting your mind ready for the next day and speaking your success/results into existence. The last thing he does is a “Daily Debrief.” This is a quick of analysis of where he went wrong during his day and then visualizing and thinking about what he will do to change and keep himself from doing that again.
Leigh spends about an hour out of his day for all of this.
Pay attention at the 20 min mark where we discuss how just having passion doesn’t translate to success, it’s the action that goes with it. And Leigh gives the simple way he started Beast Mode
Leigh says, “Remember, the more you push, even if it’s one step in front of the other, you’re still moving forward.”
Leigh’s Triple “S” to Success:
At the 31 minute mark, Leigh talks about creating obsessions and how they can take you to your next level.
Best Quote: “Don’t do something because it sounds cool or for the money, do something because if makes you into a better person.”
