EP62 Mindset Monday –Becoming a Reverse Paranoiac
Love this concept that I recently learned about. Here is a definition of a Reverse Paranoiac: A person who suspects everyone is plotting to make them happy and align with their highest good.
[00:00:13] KC: Welcome to today’s episode of Mindset Monday. Keith here, and got a good one for you today. I’ve been reading and diving into and just spending so much time with Brian Tracy’s book “Maximum Achievement” and there was a quote or philosophy or whatever you wanna call it, that was in the last chapter that I read and oh my god it’s been – this has been like one of those paradigm shifts, one of those things that for me, it just, this has been an enormous shift. And he said that you want to cultivate the mindset of a reverse paranoiac.
And I thought about that for a second and I was like, “What the heck does he mean by that?” And then he described it a little bit more and he was like, “Think about what some is when they’re paranoid,” like they’re just always thinking that, “This is gonna happen, that’s gonna happen.” The phone rings and it’s not good, the doorbell rings and it’s not good. Or whatever it is, it’s always these things that nothing’s working out, nothing’s going good, and they have this mindset, this focus, this belief that everything’s not working out for them.”
A reverse paranoiac is that everything in the world, all of – all things are aligned for your highest good. All things are moving in the right direction, all things are happening exactly as they should, all things are happening to serve you, to lift you, to bring you to your highest, holiest self. The phone rings, it’s got to be good. The doorbell rings, it’s got to be good. Someone stops over, it’s got to be good. Everything that’s happening, you’re looking for the silver lining because you’re a reverse paranoiac.
You believe that everything’s conspiring for your good in your life. And I thought about that and I was like, “Oh my god, this is unbelievable.” And I’ve been sitting with that and I’ve been working with that and I’ve been talking to myself in that way, right? If you don’t talk to yourself intentionally, you’re gonna talk to yourself all day long. Wow, a reverse paranoiac. What an amazing way to intentionally talk to yourself that everything is happening to you for your good. ‘Cause it all starts with how we’re talking to ourselves in our minds.

So put that on your plate. Do you have it in you to become a reverse paranoiac? Something I’m working on right now in my life and it’s also, you know, I got this from Wayne Dyer, one of the very first books I ever read, “Manifest Your Destiny.” He used to work, like walk around with this quote that everything is happening exactly as it should, and everything, all those things – this was the exact part of it, “All those things that I desire are on their way.” That’s the exact same thing, right?
There you go, that is my suggestion on what you can do this week to have an amazing, amazing week. Heck, you could even take that into your entire life. Alright, have a beautiful, beautiful week.
[00:03:31] KC: Hey, Keith here, and today I have a free gift for you. Listen this free gift is a list of the 12 most influential books that I’ve ever read. These are the books that have helped me to create the mindset, learn the philosophies, learn the skills to really create this big, beautiful, life that we’re living now.
I read a crazy amount of books, I really do. I’ve probably read thousands of books and these are the top 12 books that – they’re the ones that I go to, they’re the ones that I work with over, and over, and over again. They are highlighted, outlined, dog-eared. And I put this list together for you because I want it to be a shortcut.
I don’t want you to have to – you don’t have to go out and read the thousands and thousands of books. These are the 12 that I highly recommend. I have a detailed review for each book, explaining why I recommend them, why I like them, when I worked with them in my life, what part of my life they helped me to improve.
So I put this together for you, and made it super each for you to get this list. All you have to do is send a text to the number 33444 and then in the body of that text, type in “12books” with no space. So that’s the number “12books”. Again, send the text message to the number, address it to 33444 and then type in “12books” as the message and just send that. And that’ll get you setup to receive those top 12 most influential books that have had the biggest impact on my life.

[00:05:34] KC: Today’s episode is brought to you by our sister podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. So All About Beachbody Coaching really allows us to do this podcast without having all those annoying commercials in the beginning for you. So All About Beachbody Coaching, the Beachbody business that Amy and I run, actually funds this podcast.
So yes, it does cost money to run this podcast, we do not charge you anything, we don’t throw in commercials or anything like that, it really is, it’s funded by our business and by our other podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. And for me, I’m just eternally grateful for this opportunity because it’s allowed me to really create the life that I love to live.
It’s given me the opportunity to do what I want, when I want, with who I want, and even deeper than that, it’s allowed me to help others to create the same for themselves. It’s allowed me to help hundreds of other people become part time or full time Beachbody coaches, to leave that corporate 9 to 5 job and create passive income in their lives.
And really there’s nothing like that. It’s cool when you have success, it’s so much more rewarding when you help others. So I mention this or a few reasons, the first reason is, that’s actually the way that I work with people and mentor people. I don’t do anything outside of Beachbody coaching because I know that it’s such a powerful life changing tool.
So if you’re curious about working with me, interested in working one-on-one, interested in creating the type of life that you wanna live, I suggest swinging over there. The other reason is, even if somebody’s just curious, like you’ve heard about Beachbody, you know there’s a lot of Beachbody coaches out there. Maybe some of them you get a little annoyed with.
It really dives into what this business is really about, which is life transformation. So if you’re just curious, swing over there. And then the other piece is, if you’re really considering becoming a Beachbody coach, I highly, highly recommend you listen to that first.
