I interviewed Sir John Hargrave in the very last hours of his 21 day fast. Hear all about it and how you can hack your mind yourself on The Nice Guys today.
Here’s what we learned on the podcast today:
Identify and change the thought loops that may be holding you back in your business and life.
Don’t let others plant bad seeds in your mind.
Positive thought loops can help make your mind stronger.
The limitations you put on yourself are largely self-imposed.
It is incredibly important to stop, and breathe sometimes.
You can train your brain to focus on the positive and avoid the negative.
Play “What was I just thinking?” all day to improve your attitude and outlook.
Always remember- You are not your mind.

Sir John Hargrave, author of the new book MIND HACKING: HOW TO CHANGE YOUR MIND FOR GOOD IN 21 DAYS, is going without food for 21 days, to show how ordinary people can achieve amazing feats of willpower, by hacking their minds.
According to Sir John, mind hacking can be used to reprogram any number of behaviors or habits, from conquering anxiety, to improving relationships, to building careers. The trick is rooting out “problem thinking,” a process he likens to “debugging” a computer.
“When I tell people I’m going 21 days without food, the first thing they say is, ‘Don’t die,'” he remarked. “That’s a scary thought: this experiment might kill me. But the mind hack I quickly put into place was, I will not die, and in fact will become stronger. That is one of the dozens of mind hacks I will use to survive this extreme mental trial.”
Sir John, who started his career as a computer programmer, has a step-by-step system for learning to reprogram the mind. These are presented in his book MIND HACKING as a series of easy “lessons” that anyone can use to rewrite their thought patterns, and in turn, their lives.
“Your thoughts create your habits, your habits create your actions, and your actions create your life,” he said. “In order to change your life, you have to start where your life begins — in the mind.”
