Dianna Kokoszka, author and former CEO of Keller Williams MAPS Coaching and Training, explains how to retrain the brain to achieve goals more effectively by shifting from limiting to liberating thinking. She identifies three types of internal storytellers: devious, flatterer, and reasonable, none of which are conducive to reaching goals. Kokoszka emphasizes the importance of becoming an empowering storyteller and aligning the conscious and unconscious mind for goal achievement.
- Types of Internal Storytellers: Kokoszka identifies three internal storytellers in the mind: the devious, the flatterer, and the reasonable, each of which influences our actions and emotions in different, often unhelpful ways.
- Empowering Storyteller Concept: The goal is to become an empowering storyteller, who transforms problems into opportunities and focuses on becoming the best version of oneself.
- Focusing on Creation Over Problems: Kokoszka suggests that focusing on what we want to create rather than the problems we face can help shift our mindset and achieve our goals more effectively.
- Aligning the Conscious and Unconscious Mind: Achieving goals requires alignment between the goal-setting conscious mind and the goal-getting unconscious mind, with a focus on positive thoughts and environments.
- Reticular Activating System (RAS) Utilization: By feeding the brain’s RAS with positive intentions, one can rewire their thought process to be more attuned to opportunities and positive outcomes.
