The 5 Mindset Shifts

Lesson 1: The Happiness Mindset Description: You have a job, but you’re not living your dream. Your inner voice is telling you it's time to take a leap, but your self-doubts are preventing you from making the move. You are on the hamster wheel of life feeling both underwhelmed and overwhelmed and you don't know how to get off. And somehow happiness and true aliveness keeps escaping you. Yet you know you are made for more. Do you want to be happy, successful and fulfilled in every area of your life and whatever challenge you might face? Do you want to claim a vision and direction for your life and get the tools needed to help you achieve your goals, follow your passion, and find yourself again? If so, it all starts for learning to bring your happiness to the forefront. Lesson 2 The Self Care Mindset Mini Course Description: Women are expected to have a career as if they don't have children and they are expected to raise children as if they don't have a career. And because of this women are suffering. The invisible workload of working mothers is suffocating us. We’ve been raised by generations of women who didn’t know they were allowed to count WHILE they were raising their children. That they don't have to completely lose themselves to everyone and everything. My friend and marriage coach Maggie Reyes says, “The best thing for your child is to prioritize your marriage. The best thing for your marriage is to prioritize yourself as a woman.” Lesson 3 The Belief Mini Course Description: What do you think is the key to achieving our goals, our success? Most people believe that it's talent, IQ, put in long hours, work hard, work even harder and you will finally arrive at success. But it's actually our thoughts and our beliefs that determine our success. And a belief is simply a repeated thought. Famous researcher, Dr. Carol Dweck states, "The view you adopt for yourself profoundly affects the way you lead your life." What she means by this is your limiting beliefs about your abilities and what you can and cannot achieve are affecting your ability to do big things. Your thoughts create your beliefs, your beliefs create you actions, and your actions create your reality. Lesson 4: Manifester Mindset Did you know that our subconscious mind is responsible for 95 percent of our actions, experiences and thought? And your conscious mind is only responsible for 5% of what you experience and create in your life. If you don’t reprogram your subconscious mind to work for you, it will always be a product of your environment, habits, your past memories, and your programming and beliefs. Einstein said, "Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality." Lesson 5 The Systems Mindset James Clear says, “You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems.” A system is a set of processes along with your environment that set you up to win. Most of us thing we just don't have the willpower to make powerful changes in our life, but it's really our lack of a system that is the problem. A system might be that you always end each workout with 25 pushups. A system for healthy eating might be that you don't have snacks in the house or you place them in hard-to-reach locations. You might have a marketing system in your business.

The Perfectionism Trap: Cultivate Self-Acceptance, Practice Self-Compassion, and Tame Your Inner Critic.

Do you ever feel like you are falling apart inside, but you're trying to hold it together? Let's face it...you can never meet the crumbling mountain of expectations that are placed upon you by yourself, your job, your family? The constant banter of negative self-talk (your inner critic) and perfectionism (unrealistic expectations) can feel like a two-ton set of bricks on our chest. Perfection is an illusion. Social media sells us the idea of perfection, and what, when, and how should we achieve it. This is enough to trigger a deep sense of inadequacy in us. Will we ever be enough? We learn how to tam the voice in your head that says you are never good enough because "enoughness" is exhausting. It’s time for us to let go of who we were told to be and instead embrace our flawsome selves. But in order to do this, we have to retrain our brains and begin to think and behave differently than we have in the past. We have to have the courage to truly step into our true selves. So, let’s do this!
