The Story You Tell Yourself (that can Crush you) Replay from Smart Passive Income with Pat Flynn

Epic Success with Dr Shannon Irvine
Episode artwork
Read more

The stories you tell yourself can either crush YOU or help you crush your goals. Today, I’m helping you shift from crushed, to crushing it!

In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast I had the honor of having Pat Flynn interview me on his podcast, Smart Passive Income, and you get to listen in! Pat is a master interviewer and he has me go more in-depth with step-by-step examples of rewriting the stories that limit us than on any other podcast episode I’ve done! (You can listen to his original episode here).

If you love tangible examples and step-by-step processes, then you will love this episode!

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

  • “Epic Success to me means building a life and business that is completely fulfilling” 

People can build their businesses to 6, 7, and 8-figures and still focus on their families, health and life. My mission is to see entrepreneurs step in and really define what success looks like so when they get there, they can actually feel successful instead of getting to that place and realize there’s so much more because they left their family and important aspects of their lives behind. Pat says it best “You’ve got to slow to grow.” [6:56]

  • “You have stories and your stories drive your actions.” 

If you leave those stories in your subconscious, they will drive your actions. Wouldn’t it make sense to rewrite the stories you have around time, money, success, and failure to drive your actions to what we truly want? Listen in to hear me share the exact steps I take my clients through in the Mind Matrix™ to bring those stories out of the subconscious and rewire those stories and get to the next level of success. [17:57]

  • So many of us have our thoughts, our stories, and our future on autopilot  when we’ve been gifted this beautiful system of a brain that can literally automate what you want. 

The thinking that got you here, will not get you there. Each morning, repeat the true stories where you’re really owning the truth of what you desire. Who do you want to be? Be the person that’s already there so you can easily move into it. [32:07]

And how fun is the role playing Pat and I did at the end?! Could you identify with the mind blocks Pat pointed out that so many entrepreneurs struggle with? It really is true - we are not hardwired to be entrepreneurs, which is why my mission is to help thousands of entrepreneurs rewrite their limiting stories and rewire their brains for success!

Tell me: What are you going to do this week to start rewiring those limiting beliefs? I’d love to know! Tell me by sending me a message on Facebook or a DM on Instagram. I can’t wait to hear from you!


Speaking of fear….. 

One of the biggest fears I hear so many entrepreneurs say is… 

“Making money is hard and I don’t have the sales I want”… 

Knowing what you believe about money - your Money Mindset - is the 1st key to unlocking the door to your success. 


Here’s the key…

Pat Flynn- Masterclass

I Make a Living
Episode artwork
Read more

In our special Masterclass episodes, we collect questions from real-life entrepreneurs at our live #IMakeALiving shows around the world, and ask our favourite experts to weigh in. From social media to scaling, from advertising to work-life balance, we get insights and guidance from folks who have been there.

When Pat Flynn was laid off from his architecture job in 2008, he wasn't sure what to do next. On a hunch, he developed a test-prep course for architects in training; over the next year, his course brought him over $200,000 in revenue. Flynn had seen the power of passive income. Instead of developing more courses, though, Flynn started training others on how to do the same.

"Truly passive income pretty much doesn’t exist," says Flynn, but he knows from experience that designing products that reward you for investing in and building them—and pay out time and time again—comes pretty close. In this week's conversation, we talk to Flynn about his three P's of mapping the market, why entrepreneurs should cultivate their superfans, and how bringing your human side into your business can improve everything from work-life balance to audience relationships. He also takes questions from past #IMakeALiving live-event audiences about interviewing guests on podcasts (and why you should ask “why?”), making the most of your passion-project time in a day-job world, and how to maintain our learning mindset even as we grow into our roles as thought leaders.

Pat Flynn: How to Turn a CRISIS Into Massive Opportunity

I am so excited to share a special interview with the one and only Pat Flynn. This interview was recorded on April 10, 2020, the same day that deaths in the United States peaked from COVID-19. During this crazy time we’re going through as a country and as a global society, many people have suddenly lost jobs, had their income go up in smoke, and are living in a fearful state. But there is hope. And I wanted to have Pat on to share what HE did back in 2008 when he lost his job and the economy was in shambles. What he went through (and I went through at the same time) is not much different than what we’re going through today. He got through it. I got through it. We all got through it then. And we will get through this difficult time today as well.

  • Pat’s Advice On How To Balance Parenting & Being A Business Owner
  • Pat Flynn’s 3 Steps To Building Your Dream Business

Pat Flynn’s Journey To Becoming An Entrepreneur

Pat’s journey to becoming an entrepreneur started by accident. After going to school and becoming an architect, Pat was laid off from what he thought was a secure job. Not knowing what to do or having a clear path, he started offering tips online for architecture exams he’d taken and passed. He became the expert on the LEED exam in architecture and from there launched an ebook. It was in this that he learned people will pay for convenience. 

Pat’s Advice On How To Balance Parenting & Being A Business Owner

Family life is of the utmost importance to Pat and his main objective when it comes to parenting is to not only balance it, but to involve his kids. Wanting his business to bring his family together is about having more time with his family. In addition to occasionally taking his son to speaking engagements, Pat openly shares with his children why he goes on business trips and who he’s helping. He asks their permission to go on a trip and explains why such a trip is necessary. Involving his kids helps them understand why he travels. 

Pat Flynn’s 3 Steps To Building Your Dream Business

Pat shares his 3 steps on how to build your dream business starting with creating moments for people in order to turn them into fans over time. Next, provide small quick wins so that when someone finds you, they can do or have something immediately. Last, open up your factory door. Don’t be afraid to show people the insides of your business and build that human connection. 

When people are involved in something, they are invested.
