Quick Win CEO
#12: How to hack your brain and why entrepreneurs need this - With Dipti Tait
This week we’re talking about a topic that I would like to highlight as very important for entrepreneurs to get a grasp on, mental illness and mental performance. Let me just highlight why this is important.
Twice as likely to suffer from depression, psychiatric hospitalization and suicidal thoughts
3X more likely to suffer from substance abuse
10X more likely to suffer from bipolar disorder
Now with stats like these the least, I can do is help break down the barrier to allow fellow entrepreneurs to talk. Business is hard, often requiring long hours and lonely days, and entrepreneurs absorb an incredible amount of stress.
You will have already heard about Mindfulness which is one tool in the battle against mental illness but there is another, Hypnotherapy. So this episode, my Hypnotherapist Dipti Tait, has kindly agreed to help us understand how we can hack our brains and give us the mental resilience to succeed. Dipti has been featured in the media including the BBC and This Morning talking about such. And even if you don’t feel like you’ll gain value from this episode please do me the kindness of sharing this episode with someone that might need it because you never know what they might be going through. So here we go, Dipti Tait.
I'm Chris O'Hare your Quick Win CEO, as a CEO I've run businesses, founded startups, consultant for others and even won awards. But in this show, we'll be talking to entrepreneurs and experts to help you understand key concepts for your business along with 3 quick wins that you can take away and apply to your business today. Every week we'll be finding out about the entrepreneur themselves and diving into a different but important topic.
What a powerful episode, one of the most important ones I’ve done. If this helps just one person, that’s a job well done for me. I really liked the science angle on how your brain gets out of balance including that iconic golden triangle of hormones. So Dipti’s quick wins are:
Quick Win Number 1, Understanding you are in control of your own mind and no one out there controls you.
Quick Win Number 2, Sleep! Make sure you’re sleeping properly.
Quick Win Number 3, Talk to yourself with kindness, turn the negative language into positive language.
Please share these quick wins with your network, you never know how it might impact someone's life.
