”Your subconscious’ job is for you to be alive tomorrow. It's not for you to be successful. So it wants you to be fed. It wants to have a roof over your head, and it wants you to have a partner, and to reproduce effectively. So long as all of those things are in place, more success could potentially bring risk because it's changed, and your subconscious doesn't particularly like change.” — Elliot Roe

Tweetable Quotes

“If you have the knowledge of what you need to do, but you're not doing those things, that's where it's a mindset issue. And that's why you'd be working with a mindset coach.” - Elliot Roe

“The idea that that failure is something to accept and it's part of the process. There are a lot of people who get stuck on this idea. If I fail, it is wrong, they create a fear of failure and then they don't put in a 100% effort.”- Elliot Roe

“The high-performers have more of that growth mindset and they accept that failure is just a route to success. It's just something to learn from.” - Elliot Roe

“If you have someone who is literally as driven, as motivated as you are, probably they're not going to stay working with you for that long because it's very difficult.”- Elliot Roe

"The good performer can get away with blaming the staff and the high-performer will take responsibility and then try and learn the lessons from it. It's the fixed versus growth mindset.” - Elliot Roe

“Doing that deep emotional work makes a significant difference in the chances of reaching that level of success."- Elliot Roe

“The very simplistic program running from the seven-year-old you that was embarrassed in front of the class still thinks it's keeping you safe rather than thinking it's being a detriment to you.” - Elliot Roe

“You want your issues. You've learned your issues. So if you say I'm an angry person, you've just learned to be angry. If you think you're an anxious person you've learned to be anxious. If you look at life from that framing, it gives you a lot more space to evolve than if you look at things that you're just fixed as a certain way.” - Elliot Roe


About Our Guest

Elliot Roe (@ElliotRoe1) is a leading expert in Mindset Optimization for High Performers and is the world’s #1 Mindset Coach for poker players. In just the last 3 years his poker clients have won over $50,000,000 and nearly every major tournament title, including the World Series of Poker Main Event. His clientele also includes Olympic Medalists, UFC Champions, Hollywood Actors, Business executives, and wall street traders.

From his early days, in his twenties, he realized he had a fear of flying. This prevented him to be a part of some amazing experiences, on top of feeling embarrassed and stupid from knowing that fear was holding him back. One of Elliot’s friends, trying to help him, suggested hypnotherapy as a solution. Skeptical in the beginning but ready for digging the root of the problem, he opened up to the memory that was holding him back.

Returning to his travel freedom, free of stress and anxiety, Elliot signed up for hypnotherapy training, since it had such a huge impact on his life, so much so, he felt compelled to pay it forward. The passion he has had to this day is seeing others achieve their maximum potential.

His unique mindset coaching system leverages the power of hypnotherapy to eliminate fears and breakthrough mental roadblocks allowing you to operate in a state of peak performance every day.

You can get in touch with him on his website or twitter, or on the #1 Mindset App: Primed Mind.
