In this episode of High Level Performers Coaching I explain the importance of avoiding mental entrainment. This is when you allow your mind to be controlled by outside influences rather than maintain control. Your mind is your #1 tool in creating your life, your business, and your relationships. You must safeguard your mind at all costs.
For those who don’t know, one of my little side projects is called High Level Performers Coaching or HLP. This is a narrative podcast giving details on how to become what I refer to as a ‘High Level Performer’. Essentially, you could sum it up by saying this is the goal of anyone who has larger than life dreams and wants to achieve them.
This episode is about understanding the difference between having a Vision and having Pipe Dreams. Early on HLP’s differentiate themselves from the masses by creating and holding to a ‘Master Vision’. This is the larger picture of the outcome of all of their dedicated, focused efforts to create their dream and change the world. It’s good to understand the difference between visions and pipe dreams because one will lead you to achieve all of your goals by taking appropriate actions (even meditation is an action, yes?) and the other will have you day dreaming about an alternate reality.
One of the greatest things to ever happen to me was that I became a writer. Now I don’t mean this was because I started writing or that I found my voice or that I was finally able to express myself. What I mean is that I became a professional writer and, as a result, had to undergo an intense spiritual journey that would challenge me in ways that I could not conceive of at the time. In other words, unbeknownst to myself, I had begun to walk the path of authenticity.
When I was fourteen years old I fell in love with fantasy fiction as a way to escape the public school system. For me, school was absolutely torturous and I never fit in with any group. I had some friends here and there, but mostly I was on my own. During that time I found the power of the written word and its ability to project you into an alternate reality. I read book after book and was particularly enamored with Terry Brooks “Shannara” series which was similar to J.R.R. Tolkein’s “Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit”.
I began writing at around age seventeen and focused primarily on my first love which was fantasy fiction. It didn’t get very far, but it was the beginning of a journey that would ultimately resume two decades later.
In an interesting twist of fate, the very thing that I used to escape reality would ultimately make me come face to face with it.
Years later I wrote my first book “Reality Creation 101”. It was a good book, but not a great book. It wasn’t the book that I originally set out to write, but of course I wasn’t ready to write what I originally set out to write. I needed to undergo further transformation. The confrontation with myself was one I did not expect: hiring an editor.
To this day I believe that being forced to hire and work with an editor was one of the very best things that ever happened to me. It forced me to face myself, to get over myself, to embrace evolution, and to ultimately become authentic. Sure, this is a vast oversimplification of a life path the likes of which would shock most people. Yet, I couldn’t have become an authentic spiritual writer without walking this insane path. I would have been inauthentic otherwise. The in-authenticity had to be burned away from me like an outer layer of residue like some form of an alchemical experiment.
Alive Awake Aware: Authentic Power Through Spirituality is the end result of this alchemical transformation and awakening into authenticity. It represents my desire to create something that can help people to awaken to their own authenticity and a departure from the ‘shiny object syndrome’. When I wrote this book my intention was to infuse every word and every line with that of consciousness itself. In my approximation, your life is a pathway upon which you continue to learn, grow, and evolve yourself. There is no destination, there is only the journey.
This will just be a quick update:
I’ve been working on multiple podcasts as well as my new book Alive Awake Aware: Authentic Power Through Spirituality.
“As a teacher who has had the privilege of sharing personal growth and evolution to millions worldwide, it is easy to recognize a kindred spirit when I meet one. Chris lays out a path to heightened spirituality that is easy to understand and follow for the first time seeker and experienced practitioner alike. He shares his wisdom in a way that makes positive change easy for all to achieve. His authenticity is his greatest gift.” – Laura Silva, CEO of Silva Life System
“Chris’ work is based on his deep experience and awakening process. It is thought provoking and integral, and covers many important yet often overlooked steps that people must take on the path of awakening . My hope is that it will motivate many people to connect more deeply within themselves and unfold who they truly are.” – Deborah Rozman, CEO HeartMath Inc.
” Christopher’s timing could not be better. The virtual world is invading every aspect of our lives. Not only do we need a Reality Check, but definitely we need to WAKE UP and become AWARE. Very few people have reached a level of awareness which make them catalyst for other people’s transformation. Christopher is one of them. I highly recommend reading this provocative book if you want to Move Up the ladder of awareness” – Dr. Rapaille, Author of the best seller CULTURE CODE. Chairman and CEO of Archetype Discoveries Worldwide
“Alive Awake Aware is a detailed look at the topic of spirituality and consciousness which can help people understand themselves better, and can be used as a guidebook to help the reader discover and wake up on how they want to use spirituality and higher consciousness in their everyday life. It also highlights the workplace and how both men and women need to wake up not only in their personal life but how they create in business. It is when companies, executives and employees become AWARE that they can impact change that businesses can change for the better. Many company executives do not know that every decisions they make, whether they are conscious of it or not has ripple effect, positive or negative. Alive Awake Aware opens the reader to many possibilities that relate to the collective whole, not just one aspect of the human experience.” – Nina Boski, Entrepreneur, Movie and TV Producer

So, I’ve read a zillion books on self development and spirituality. I’m going to tell you right now, this book is one of a kind. In fact, you might not be ready for it.” – Mike Michalowicz Author of The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur

Christopher has very intentionally and methodically laid out the key areas to focus on, and a fresh and approachable perspective on how to digest each piece without feeling overwhelmed or rushed.

“Combining spiritual philosophies, ancient wisdom, and good old-fashioned practical truths, Christopher Pinckley has crafted a guidebook for anyone on a spiritual or personal growth quest.

As we learn to trust this wisdom, Pinckley reminds us that we have the power to heal ourselves, change our lives, enhance our relationships, and continue to evolve in awareness and compassion, using practical daily routines and strategies that he shares throughout the book.” – Barrie Davenport, author of Peace of Mindfulness and founder of Live Bold and Bloom.
