Brain Habits for Success with Dr. Shannon Irvine

One of the things I get asked a lot is how to change habits.

I think we all have habits we would like to either get rid of or a new habit we’d like to build.

What is one habit you would like to change or add to your life? Want to know how to neurohack your success through habits?

Awesome! It’s not as “hard” as you may think.

This week on the Epic Success podcast, I’m sharing how habit success is an inside job. One thing I know from my studies of NeuroPsychology is, becoming successful, in business AND life, is in the daily habits of what you think. It all comes back to my neurocoaching™ model, which I skim the surface of today but go into depth on inside my Epic Success Academy.

One of the hacks for training your brain to transform your life and business, is really leaning hard into neurohacking on a daily basis. Ready to learn how?

The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:

  • “A habit is just a decision repeated over time, just like a belief is just a thought repeated over time.”

A habit starts in the mind with what you’re allowing your brain to think, which is what separates the successful from those who are not. From your thoughts and beliefs you make decisions and actions, which turn into habits over time. So if you want something different in your life and business, then you need to train your thinking first. [3:15]


  • “Wake up everyday postured to lean into your intention and put your mind in a state where you will be the creator of your thoughts and put everything in your calendar.”


I know we’re told that forming a habit takes 21 days, but that just isn’t the case - I’ve got brain scans to prove it ;) . After training your brain for 21 days, the neural networks in your brain for the old habit and the new habit are exactly the same. At that time, you have a choice to go back to the old habit or continue to build the new, desired habit. You might be surprised how long it really takes to build a new habit - tune in to find out.  [6:36]

  • “We’ve got over 30 neurochemicals that can be working for you towards these habits”

One hack you can do to make habit building easier is to put a calendar up where you can physically mark off each of the 67 days as you build the new neural networks to create your new habit. Your brain loves that and rewards with more positive neurochemicals! [9:14]

The key to removing old neural networks and creating new ones to build new habits is a matter of one day at a time. Don’t worry about the 67 days for your new habit - just wake up each day and focus on your thoughts for that one day. Consistency day by day creates momentum!

What is one habit you would like to add today and how can you calendar that today? Tag me on social media so I can cheer you on and support you!
