“You have to find something you’re willing to fight for.”
We are all limited by fear. Whether that fear is of rejection or failure, we all experience the force of this one emotion. Coyte Cooper is an author, coach, and speaker of high performance and has built his reputation on pulling the potential out of others.
Throughout the podcast, Cooper explains how the greatest pain we can ever experience is the feeling after you have given up on yourself and your potential. Regret is eternally punishing. “When you get somebody to start believing in themselves and to start elevating their mindset...it’s crazy.” Cooper sheds some light on the fact that over 66% of people are stressed out in this world.
“We have 50 – 60,000 thoughts a day and 80% of those are negative.”
Everything you do and everything you say starts with what you think. If you have a negative self-image, the things you think and say will most likely be negative. McCabe and Cooper dive into serious discussion about how we are a settling society. Without knowing it, we are always being told to settle rather than to push towards our potential.
“We’re constantly telling people ‘No’ to keep them safe, but really we’re not teaching people to go for it.”
All you have at the end of the day is your character and your self-image, make sure you are always taking care of both by reaching higher and treating others with love and kindness.
We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we have enjoyed recording it.
