The Proper Mindset to Succeed Episode 182 April 24, 2020

Coach, Colin Dingelstad, knows how to set goals and achieve them, but it comes from years of study plus trial and error. Now he shares his best strategies for creating the ideal mindset for success.

“If you still hate somebody, you don’t truly own your mind. You will always be a slave to the other person.” ~ Colin Dingelstad

In March, Colin traveled to Miami from the Netherlands in pursuit of one of his goals, training with professional MMA fighters, Now, the gym is closed, and he’s stuck in Miami. His goal was to get good enough to make a professional fighter have to pay attention to him.

Colin has the most wide-ranging, specific, and big goals as I’ve ever come across. He grew up in a culture where people began drinking as early as age 13, but he quickly realized he wanted more out of life than that road led too. 

He shares how one Facebook post launched his successful coaching career. And how constant failures helped create a database of what not to do, allowing him to help people even more. We talk mindset, hatred, and how forgiving someone is genuinely for your benefit, not the other person. Also, exploring what are you feeding your mind? external games, internal games, standards, expectations, and the importance of knowing your “why.”
