Hey, it’s Greg Yates from the No Head trash Nation… where our mission is to Unlock your purpose, help you Live with Passion and become who you were created to be! 

You’re capable of more than you’ve experienced so far, and there is an unencumbered life waiting for you right on the other side of that make-believe barrier that’s been holding you back. 

It’s time to get rid of the head trash and THRIVE – and to do that, it takes a nation. The no head trash nation where the battle you’re fighting becomes the opportunity of a lifetime.

So today I’m going to let you in on a little … well almost embarrassing discussion I have with myself … I admit it… almost every day. Yes, it’s embarrassing… and no, it’s not logical… but this is a place where we get real and today I’m going to get real because this is a HEAD FAKE we give ourselves – or I give myself anyway – that gives us the illusion of progress without actually doing anything… and it exhausts OUR BELIEF> 

Imagination is like a simulator, right?  Have you ever been on one of those simulators at Disney where you’re flying a fighter plane or riding a rollercoaster… except you’re not really?  

How does your body respond? Oh it has nothing to do with logic, can we agree on that? You get almost all of the sensations of the real thing… but without the risk and without actually experiencing the thing you’re simulating…. 

BOOM..   you get me?

Now imagination is great, and it is absolutely the thing that helps transform ideas into physical form… but imagine if we actually DID the things we say we’re here to do.  Imagine if we actually DID the things we’re preparing to do?  Imagine if we actually believed that we are here to DO THE THINGS… not just imagine doing them. 

So, you’ve imagined that life changing thing you’re here to do )(and you are, by the way) – what happens?  

·        Your head trash kicks in

·        Your limiting beliefs SAVE YOU from taking action.

·        And NOBODY… I mean NOBODY gets any benefit… but you were safe… you didn’t risk whatever imaginary risk you had – you didn’t risk someone thinking you were wrong, or that you were trying to sell them something or that you were doing something BOLD and COURAGOUS.

No.. nobody thinks that… so you’re safe.  

Let me ask you something. Is anybody better off because you were safe? Because you caught yourself before you did something risky?  The answer is… NO.

So just imagine with me that you were willing to risk a minute or two out of your comfort zone and it would change somebody’s life? Imagine all of the people wearing fake smiles who wonder if you’re really someone who would listen or could help them… because they’ve heard you say you can. 

Imagine what it would be like to KNOW your purpose. To be able to say it OUT LOUD no matter who hears and live it out even if you make a mistake or two in the process? 

What would that look like?  

Oh… and by the way… not everybody is going to validate you because SURPRISE… when you step out to do something important, sometimes it makes other people uncomfortable.

So let me tell you what other people have planned for you. What would make them comfortable all the time.  NOT MUCH. They don’t have anything planned for your life. They’d prefer you just marched to the beat of society’s drum and hold your place in line - NO CUTTING….. thank you very much. 

But that’s not the dream you’ve been dreaming, and it’s not mine either. Maybe today is the day we step over the line of courage and put into ACTION, what we truly believe.  

A good friend of mine told me just today that he was inspired through words he read in the Scripture… that went something like this. Don’t be hearers of the word only, but doers. Don’t be like the man who looks at himself in the mirror and then after walking away forgets what he looks like. Don’t forget what your future looks like or the dreams you have been given to be your best and inspire others to be their best as well. 

It’s time to get rid of the head trash and become the incredible, inspiring, unstoppable person you were created to be.

Greg Yates

BIO: After more than 30 years in business, owning as many as 14 businesses at one time with hundreds of employees, Greg found himself under the influence of Head Trash when the Real Estate market crashed. In denial, Greg made decisions that ultimately cost him tens of millions in capital and a year in prison. Going from massive success to the brokenness of failure, Greg came face to face with the ‘head-trash’ that had blocked his decision-making process and left him isolated as a leader. Now, Greg trains high-level teams the 4 essential GETS if they want to Break through the barriers of Head-Trash. Greg takes leaders into a training environment he calls The Practice Zone where these four essentials and the HABITS necessary to implement them can be intentionally developed for success. Greg is the author of 4 books and his 5th book, entitled “Circumstances Lie”, will be released in the fall. His first book, “Broken, how being broken unlocked the greatest success of my life”, details his life, leadership, success and the entire story of his legal battles and prison. It’s a brutal story with extensive details Greg journaled in prison and how his return home sparked the desperate search for a new belief system and significance. Greg is a speaker, author, trainer, and coach but his ultimate mission is building the “Practice Zone Mastermind”, where men who are Christian Leaders can connect, train and network together. Men in leadership need a place to have conversations they can’t have anywhere else. Greg believes this network would have prevented catastrophic brokenness in his own life and is sharing purpose, passion and potential as the catalyst for exponential Breakthrough. "THE NO HEAD TRASH NATION" Podcast is where Greg rants about the Head Trash that's holding you back in short, inspirational bursts that bring clarity and focus for the Leader.
