In this episode Joel and Antonia interview Sir John Hargrave about his new book Mind Hacking.

In this podcast on Mind Hacking you’ll find:

  • Sir John Hargrave’s book teaches us how we can easily alter our personality.
  • What is mind hacking? The basic concept is that our brains can be reprogrammed. You don’t have to believe everything your mind is telling you.
  • With a few re-programming techniques, you can really change the way you think. Mind hacking is a collection of methods and systems that you can do to effectively manage and take control of your lives. For example, when you’re stuck in a heavy traffic, you can train your mind to take advantage of the situation and do something productive.
  • We’re now at a point where we have a common understanding of the realm of computers. Understanding that there’s a second reality that’s not a physical reality is very similar to our minds. Here we can understand the abstract component of our minds – it may not be physical but its functions are more real.
  • Sir John Hargrave’s Mind Hacking process:
  1. Becoming aware of the mind. There’s a component called “you”. You could see that you’re not your mind, you’re separate from it. However, implementing the awareness on a daily basis is the challenging part and there are tools and techniques to help everyone with the process.
  1. Debugging the mind.
  • Picture a programmer who analyzes software bugs and tries to find the problem code and finally reprogramming those with the right (positive) code. The same idea applies to mind hacking. Ask yourself, “what is it that I want?”, “What are the goals and dreams that I’d like to accomplish?” and then rooting it in your minds so eventually they will show up or emanate in your reality. When you ask people what they want in life, they give vague ideas – something that’s not really what they want.
  • In this step, you’ll be able to program your brain to frame your internal dialogue to head to the positive direction you want. You can also become better person with Imagination. One example is the funeral speech – What is it that you want to be remembered for? You can come up with a word like “love”, “education” and you reflect on what your life goals should be.
  1. Reprogramming. Simulation is also important in imagination. When you try to simulate inside your head the things that you want to or accomplish, there’s a higher chance of success. Simulation rather than visualization has shown to produce great results.
  • Picturing yourself in the 3rd person instead of the 1st person produces better results and change.
  • If you run simulations that include challenges gives you more confidence. Keep the simulation loose.
  • 5 Whys is a hack that helps you get into the very bottom of the problem thought.
  • The Reality Distortion Field. The late Steve Jobs has this sense of anything being possible it was almost like a force field that impacted many people.
  • We all have within us, the power to create our own reality distortion fields. So if we want to achieve something and we believe in it so strongly, you will eventually achieve it overtime, you will tend to become the person who you want to be.

    Hugely interesting podcast. Joel and Antonia, I really I appreciate the depth of your questions, and bringing clarity to areas that were a bit harder for me to grasp. I just downloaded the book, and it’s fascinating. A very funny and entertaining read – thanks for putting this book on the radar.

    Thank you Sir John Hargraves for this interview, so far, great read. I’ve got my notebook prepped, and I’m excited to see how I’ll evolve in the coming 21 days. Exciting!

      We are so glad you have discovered Sir John and his book! Let us know how you progress on your 21 day evolution.

    What a great and interesting concept. Last weekend when I had the opportunity to listen to the insideout podcasts I really liked the idea of programming your own mind, since I’m studying computing science and I just LOVE to sit and start programming. And now this book, debugging your mental loops, use your imagination to see yourself in the future (something I like to do almost every day), but to also simulate it (something I’ve never thought of doing)… Let’s just say that I’m going to start reading the book

    • Laura

      *Blushes* Have you ever been writing a comment on your phone and hit send by accident before you even finish the first paragraph? Because that’s what just happened to me.
      *Ahem* So, like I was saying, I’m going to start reading the book, like, right now.
      You know what’s funny? Four years ago I actually did the funeral speech thing and just a few days ago I found it on the back of my closet. Oh my, it feels ages ago, and let’s just say that I regret a few things that I wrote (I was this little teenage girl), but it’s amazing how I still want the same things, so it’s time to start doing something to make that happen.
      I was happily pinning this morning, and I stumbled with this quote: “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” — Eleanor Roosevelt; and while you were talking about the reality distortion field, that was the only thing I could think of, like it was on repeat.
      Thanks for the podcast and the enlightenment it brings! I’m grateful for what you do here 🙂

        You are the reason we do what we do Laura. You are very young to have such awareness.

        Congratulations! The future is bright if it rests in hands like yours.
