“Making money is simply too hard for mumpreneurs."
You may think this.
Yet it’s not necessarily true...just something that you believe based on things you’ve learned in your life so far. And if you believe something...it’s buried deep in your subconscious. A place traditionally hard to access to make lasting change.
But here’s the good news. There’s a new method of subconscious reprogramming making big waves in the coaching world. It’s called MAP and stands for Manifesting All Possibilities. I love to use it to help Mumpreneurs change beliefs such as this and other deep success blocks.
Eh? Wait? Back up a minute!! Subconscious reprogramming? You mean like a computer?
Well in a way, yes, just like that.
You see all humans think and behave according to ‘programs’ (beliefs, traits, tendencies, ways of being) that are generally acquired by the age of 7 years old. Most of this information is ‘downloaded’ from our parents or primary care-givers…. who also downloaded theirs by the age of 7...from someone who downloaded theirs by the age of 7..and so on and so forth.
Do you see glaringly obvious problem here?
We’ve all learned how to think and behave as very young children!!
The important word here is “learned”.
We learn through remembering. If you are bitten by a dog when you are small, the next time you encounter a dog, you will remember the previous experience and modify your behaviour accordingly - which changes your experience of this second encounter. This time you may scream, which frightens the dog, who reacts negatively and reinforces the new, growing belief/learning that “dogs are bad”.
Clearly this is a belief that simply is not true...but to the person who has the belief it seems very true indeed and they’ve learned this via multiple experiences.
What are some beliefs that seem really true for you? Maybe “making money is hard” or “I’m not smart enough to be successful”....the list is endless.
Now the thing about beliefs is that our brains need to maintain a sense of order about the world that we live in. So if we have a belief (like “dogs are bad” or “making money is hard”)..we will continue to notice and create examples of dogs being bad or making money being hard. And the more of these memories that we stack on top of each other...the more ingrained in our subconscious these programs or 'paradigms' become.
“Making money is too hard for Mumpreneurs” is a perfect example of a subconscious block. For as long as you believe this is true, you will continue to experience this reality.
MAP practitioners overcome subconscious blocks by training the brain to find and neutralize negative unconscious memories. Yes, the brain literally reprograms itself!
Here’s the science;
The MAP method leverages a little known yet revolutionary discovery in neuroscience that is called the Window of Re-consolidation. Scholarly articles referencing the window of re-consolidation started appearing around 2012 but this exciting knowledge is really only just starting to trickle into main-stream psychology and psychotherapy.
The window of re-consolidation allows the brain to neutralize negative memories within seconds - you can simply unlearn any unwanted memories, traumas, beliefs, negative emotions etc. There is no hypnosis, tapping, visualisations, or even talking necessary. I’ve heard some people in success circles even refer to it as the next big thing since NLP….
Does MAP differ from NLP and other cool methods on the personal development scene?
In short, yes.
NLP: You are not asked to follow instructions, visualize or
imagine anything or take any actions to get the results. A command is given
to your subconscious mind and you simply relax and observe the changes.
This means that young children or people with cognitive limitations can benefit from
Hypnosis: There is no hypnotic state inducement. You stay totally awake and aware and you are in control of the entire session. The MAP practitioner is working in alignment
with an inner wisdom that comes from you.There is no insertion of any kind.
Also, the practitioner's role is not to influence the healing one way or another, they are more a facilitator, unleashing the brain’s ability to rewire and upgrade itself.
Family Constellations and Bio Decoding: We can address family history. We are able to find within seconds the origin of a pattern several generations back, and clear it totally from the generational tree.
EMDR: While EMDR is focused more specifically on trauma and often brings strong
emotional reactions, MAP is usually very gentle. An emotion might last 3-5
minutes but is followed by a great sense of peace.
CBT: Contrary to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, you don’t have to be actively
participating and making conscious choices as we know that the
unconscious mind is exponentially faster than the conscious mind. Also, using will is a thing
the practitioner has no ability to control.
Unlike most methods, MAP can be even be used by you “incognito”.
You can learn to give yourself sessions and this can be done anytime, anywhere.
Clearly there are obvious gains to be achieved through MAP for people suffering deep, emotional, recurring symptoms but high performing entrepreneurs and athletes are now taking advantage of this method too. Not necessarily to heal but to super-charge the coaching they are already receiving and to highly optimize their mindset for success.
My friend and colleague, Ricki Brideoake, coaches elite male athletes and high performing entrepreneurs. He has this to say about his own experience with MAP;
“I can't even put into words the impact that MAP has had on me. I started training quite a while ago with the founders
and since then I have:
Started my dream business
Up-leveled my performance in all aspects of my life including
business, financial, personal, relationships and spiritual
Earned more money in a week than I used to in 2 months
I originally joined to really become a top performer and reach my
potential, which I have, but the side effects of clearing all the negative
things in my head is that I am now just a much happier, more
grounded, calm and passionate person.”
Now as I said, I love helping Mumpreneurs with MAP. Just like Ricki's high-achieving male clients, mothers in business need to have their mental performance in peak condition.
My clients are often astounded by how quickly they can re-wire their brain and change their programs. MAP Sessions can be conducted 1:1 in person, over the internet, in groups or even via pre-recorded material.
In fact, my own introduction was via a pre-recorded session back in 2016 and I vividly remember the experience….let me share it with you.
I was a struggling entrepreneur 3 years ago and a trusted mentor recommended I try (in his words) “this really interesting new mindset thing”. So I took his advice and bought an online pre-recorded program. At $600 it seemed like a hefty investment but I remember lying in bed, calmly listening to the audio and experiencing my ‘hard-wired stuff’ vapourising in minutes. Negative beliefs and fears around money from my childhood were a big issue for me...and they just disappeared. Poof!
Suffice it to say, the return on that particular investment turned out to be astronomical.
Now everybody’s first MAP experience is unique and perfect but mine was fairly typical. Like any form of coaching; the more invested the client is in their own change and the more open to possibility they are...the faster their results.
I’ve had clients come to me with really deep, emotional stuff that has been disrupting their lives for years and have most of it resolved after one session. It can almost seem somehow magical..but of course it’s not - once you understand how it works.
Other clients (especially the analytical types) can sometimes take a little longer to get these same results...and that’s ok too.
Does MAP ever not work?
In my experience it really depends on how willing a client is to allow a part of their mind which is not their ‘clever’ prefrontal cortex to do the work. If a client comes to me looking for great results, that is what I will guarantee. I’ve only had one client so far that I couldn’t help with MAP.
Conclusion. We are living in exciting times! Contemporary discoveries in neuroscience and psychology are starting to demonstrate just how powerful we really are.
P.S. Because you’ve read this far; here’s a dynamic mindset hack for you to take home.
“Making decisions from our current state of being generally leads to results similar to the ones we are already experiencing. Transformational decisions come from the transformed perspective.”
