You Can’t Afford This Career Mistake!

Neuroscientists have discovered that the average human brain thinks approximately 50,000 thoughts per day and that roughly 80% of those are negative.  [Yikes!]

No wonder so many people suffer from self-doubt and hold back in their career or business when they really should be going for it!


What does this mean for you?  

It means that if you’ve been considering a career change (or any big evolution) you can’t afford to neglect your mindset!!

Heather - strongA strong mindset is often the difference between success and failure in any endeavourbut how do you actually create that?

Here’s the good news!

After years of experimenting with mantras, journaling visualization and meditation, I feel like I’ve cracked the code on how to create a mindset for success! 

And I’ve created an exciting 4-part email/video series to help you do the same.

In part 1 (below) I’m going to share with you the basics for building a mindset for success. 



Part 1: Creating A Mindset For Success

So what exactly is a mindset for success?

A mindset for success is one where you:

  • Limit negative self-talk,
  • Improve the quality of your energy (aka raise your vibration)
  • Waste less time and energy thinking about unwanted ‘what ifs’ and
  • Focus more of your attention on the outcomes you do want.

When you have a mindset for success, you can look challenges (like changing careers or starting a business) squarely in the eye and really go for it!  Without the doubt, anxiety and stress that’s always held you back. 

Luckily, cultivating a more positive attitude is not that difficult!  In fact, it can be achieved with as little effort as 5 minutes a day.  Like exercise or healthy eating, it just takes consistent action to see results.

Creating Your Own Mindset Practice

It wasn’t until I started to give my own mindset daily attention that my own career and business took off.  In fact, I’ve grown my income by 50% every year since I started a daily mindset practice!

Your mindset practice might include meditation and visualization, saying mantras, listening to inspiring music, exercise, journaling or a combination of those things.  There really is no right or wrong here!

What matters is that you do what works for you to give your mindset daily attention so you can tap into a more positive, focused and empowered pattern of thinking.

Heather - drinkToday my mindset practice consists of 30 minutes of meditation and journaling in the morning followed by spontaneous dance-breaks to high vibe music whenever I feel like I need a boost. (See, you really can make it your own!) 

So if you feel like no matter what you try or how hard you work you still can’t reach the success you’re wired for, I hope you’ll focus on your mindset this week! 

I encourage you to experiment and try out some different strategies to see what you enjoy.

Watch for Part 2 (next week) where I’ll share with you some specific mindset practices that work for many of my clients.

Until then, stay positive!
