30 Day Mental Fast

Personal Development

The 30 Day Mental Fast could be the most challenging but potentially life changing exercise that you have ever tried!  Make a commitment to complete this 30 day challenge and you will gain incredible focus, clarity and massive momentum toward achieving your goals.

Jerry Clark intoduced me to the 30 Day Challenge when I met him a few years ago in Mexico.  Jerry is a very successful Internet Marketer and Public Speaker.  You can check out Jerry’s website at http://www.clubrhino.com

1.     Read a minimum of 15 minutes per day from an inspiring book

Try to pick topics on Personal Development, Mindset, Success, Spirituality, etc.  If you haven’t read Think and Grow Rich then I suggest starting with this book!  If you read 15 minutes per day for 30 days then you should be able to finish the entire book in this time.

2.     Turn off the Television for 30 days

How many of you just fell of your chair?!  I did warn you that this wasn’t going to be easy!  I understand that television is a big part of many people’s lives but just try to keep it off for 30 days as it will have an incredible impact.  You will be amazed by how much extra time you have with your friends, family and also to focus on your goals.

At the very least try to cut out all disempowering television such as news, current affairs, soaps, etc.  Our subconscious mind absorbs all of this negativity and is programmed to believe the crap that they bombard us with.  Our subconscious mind starts to think that people rip you off, life is dangerous, wealthy people are con artists, investing is risky, etc.  This constant bombardment of negative news can have devastating effects on our mindset and on our success.

3.     Turn off the radio in the car and listen to Audio Books

Many of us spend hours and hours driving in our cars every single week.  Why not make the most of this time and turn your car into a University on Wheels!  An ipod is one of the best investments you can make.  Download audio books on Personal Development, Mindset and Investing and listen to them every day while driving your car.  You can get through an entire book in about 6 hours.  Most people drive more than 6 hours per week so that adds up to 1 book every week or 52 books per year.

Imagine the amazing impact this would have on your life and on your results!  I have found a fantastic website to download audiobooks and they have a huge range of titles from authors such as Tony Robbins, Jack Canfield, Brian Tracey, Jim Rohn, Wayne Dyer and hundreds more.

4.     Don’t read the newspaper

95% of the newspaper is bad news.  Bad news sells and like television, can have a devastating impact on our subconscious minds.  Friends and family will tell you about any major events that are happening in the world!

5.     Associate with empowering people.

Do your friends empower you to achieve success and reach your goals or do they disempower you and try to hold you back?  Try this exercise: Write down the names of your 5 closest friends (the friends you spend most of your time with).  Estimate the annual salary for each friend.  Divide this number by 5 and this figure will be pretty close to your annual salary!

How do you earn more money and achieve more success? Surround yourself with people who have achieved the results that you want to achieve!  Choose friends that will inspire you to reach your goals and support you every step of the way.  Who needs friends that drag you down and prevent you from fulfilling your dreams?  Their insecurity and negativity will prevent you from reaching your goals.

6.     Drink more water

Did you know that our bodies need approximately 1 litre of water / 25kg of bodyweight.  If you weigh 75kg you need to drink 3 litres of water every single day!  Our bodies are made up of over 70% water and the majority of us are constantly in a dehydrated state.  This causes toxins to build up in the body, fatigue, lack of concentration, etc.  If you are not getting enough water then it is important to increase your intake gradually (otherwise you will spend most of your day on the toilet!).  Increase your daily intake by 1 glass in the first week and keep adding 1 glass each week after this until you reach the target of 1 litre / 25kg.

7.     Walk for 20 minutes per day

For the next 30 days aim to go for a 20 minute walk every day.  Walking is a great way to increase the circulation, clear the head, burn fat and decrease stress levels.  You can also take your ipod and listen to an audiobook at the same time!

Walking also stimulates our right and left brain together so you may find that you come up with some great ideas.  Take a pocket notepad and pen on your walk just in case you have a million dollar brainwave!

8.      Reflection and Visualisation

Spend 20 minutes every day sitting in a quiet location with your eyes shut.  Express gratitude for all of the great things in your life and visualise the amazing future that you are about to create.  Picture yourself having already achieved your wildest dreams.  What type of house do you live in?  What car do you drive?  What travel destinations have you visited?  Put yourself in the picture and feel the emotion.  Take notice of any colours, smells, tastes or sounds.  Keep practicing this until you get tingles down your spine and goose bumps from head to toe.  This is a very powerful process!

If you make a commitment to complete the 30 day mental fast I guarantee your life will never be the same again.  It will be a challenge and it will be difficult at times but believe me when I say that the results at the end will be well worth the short term pain!  Good Luck!

    Hey Brad,

    Good points mate.

    I know one of the best things I ever did was ditch most of the mainstream news, papers, media, etc – which as it turns out wasn’t all that difficult. And my mindset isn’t one of avoidance, I just don’t see much value in it any more.

    Until you get away from it – in my opinion – you don’t realise how much unbalanced rubbish you’re being fed, how easy it can be to become sheep-like with your thinking and, amazingly, how you can still stay very much informed and in touch (particularly these days) without having to have it in your life each day.

    Our best asset is what’s in between our ears – gotta look after it :-)

    Have a good one buddy.

    Cheers,

    Justin.

    Thanks Justin, I couldn’t agree with you more mate! When I stopped watching the news and reading the newspapers I found my entire outlook on life started to change. What we focus on becomes our reality! ;o)

  3. Kayley G Ryder Says:

    Awesome post Brad. I’m like you and Justin, I removed all the main stream stuff a long time ago and even if we are watching the tele the ads are muted and we take time to chat in between.

    Life’s about being selective with the energy you accept into your vibration and being completely conscious about what you take in so you know what you are sending out.

    Kindest Kayley.
