Transforming Stressful Life Events into Motivation with Dr. Don Wood

There’s nothing wrong with you and there’s nothing wrong with your mind.

Dr. Don Wood

Dr. Don Wood, Ph.D. is the Founder and CEO of the Inspired Performance Institute, and creator of the patented TIPP method. TIPP is a cutting-edge method inspired and developed through the newest developments in neuroscience. It’s designed to clear away the effects of disturbing or traumatic events, repurpose old patterns, and set the individual’s mind up for peak performance. In essence, the TIPP method “REBOOTs” the brain when it gets stuck in thought patterns, making it possible to enhance alpha oscillations with a noninvasive and effective shift in brain wave activity. Dr. Wood is the author of two books based on his research, You Must Be Out of Your Mind: We All Need A Reboot and Emotional Concussions: Understanding How Our Nervous System is Affected By Events and Experiences.

How do you go from stressed to motivated?

When you’re under pressure, you may not look beyond today’s circumstances for what’s causing your stress. But the truth is, how you react to challenging situations now is directly tied to events you’ve already faced. The key to overcoming that stress is figuring out how your present feelings are being influenced by your past.

I’m thrilled to have Dr. Don Wood on the show today. Dr. Wood is a clinical psychologist and founder of the Inspired Performance Institute. After years of research, he created the TIPP method as a holistic approach to heal the effects of trauma on the body and mind, and is the author of You Must Be Out of Your Mind: We All Need A Reboot and Emotional Concussions: Understanding How Our Nervous System is Affected By Events and Experiences.

We all have stress on a day-to-day basis, but how well you handle today’s stress depends on how you managed your earlier stress. Fear and stress are signposts your mind has created based on these past experiences and how you coped then will influence your stress levels in the current situation. Listen in as Dr. Wood shares insights into recognizing these patterns and gives you actionable steps so you can transform the stress in your life into motivation.
