Todays guest joining us on the Join Up Dots podcast is a man who has been at the very top of his career, and now is on a mission to go even higher. He is a former American football center and commercial actor. He played college football at Purdue, and was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fifth round of the 2001 NFL Draft, earning a Super Bowl ring with the Steelers in Super Bowl XL (40) against the Seattle Seahawks. He has also been a member of the Arizona Cardinals and Houston Texans, and is now a Master Practitioner in Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). With his brand, Basic Instructions, he helps executives, athletes and others to access the resources within themselves to achieve the life experience they desire. As he says "In NLP, there’s a saying: the conscious mind is the goal setter, and the unconscious mind is the goal-getter. Your unconscious mind is not out to get you–rather, it’s out TO GET FOR YOU whatever you want in life. However, if you don’t know how to communicate what you want properly, it will keep bringing steaming bowls of liver stew out of the kitchen. Whatever it is, realize that your unconscious mind only does that because it thinks that’s what you want. (“Sir, here is your procrastination along with a side of anxiety. I’ve also told the valet to bring up your emotional baggage as per your request. Will you be needing anything else?”) You see there is a lot going on inside us which we just haven't got a clue that it's holding us back from ever getting ourselves into the end zone, for lifes touchdown. So as he worked tirelessly in his football career did he always have an eye on the next stage of his life? And where do people go wrong in life in his view...working hard for the wrong things, are not working hard enough for the right things? Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Chukky Okobi Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Chukky Okobi such as: Chukky shares how the repetition of practicing time and time again can be so powerful, as it leads us to know how its going to feel at the right time Why it is so important to mentally set out your own steps, whilst not being prescribed by others and what they expect of us day to day. and lastly…. Chukky reveals how the biggest obstacle that people face in their lives is their own personal belief structure. What they believe they can achieve often gets stopped before it ever has a chance to come to life.
