How to Master Your MINDSET - Top 5 Most Common Mindset Traps & How to Instantly Get Unstuck!

For years, even as a new coach, I knew that the inner perspectives someone held would greatly influence their ability to reach their goals, have positive interactions with others and enjoy life. Or not.

But it was only 2 years ago when I joined the online coaching communities that I discovered there was actually a term for all of that. Mindset.

And I also discovered that there were coaches out there that specialized in mindset!

So I realized that my actual specialty is around mindset. Sure I help others switch up their schedule to have more time and energy. Plus, I am an expert in leadership and business as well. But truly, the more I thought about it and coached more leaders across the globe, I saw that the inner mindset piece was the most POWERFUL part that could create MASSIVE TRANSFORMATION!

When the mindset piece was strong, the leadership, business and impact pieces could be changed up way more easily. But when it was struggling or stuck, the other areas suffered too!

Simple Guide to Meditation for POWERFUL Leaders

The first time I truly realized the power of sharing meditation and mindfulness with leaders was a few years ago now when I was at the University of British Columbia taking a business course for executives.

While chatting with some of my fellow students, we got onto the topic of meditation and I shared my enthusiasm with them…

they were so intrigued that they arranged for me to do a demo session so the other executives could try it out for the first time.

So we sat in one of the classrooms and I walked them through a 5 minute guided meditation. First we started with some breathing, then we relaxed their bodies and calmed their minds.

 

And once it was done, they were calm and happy, feeling refreshed and relaxed.

 

But the coolest part?!

 

Was how many of them had never felt a moment of calm in their minds before! EVER! In their entire lives! And they were in their 30’s, 40’s and 50’s!!!!

I was amazed! And honoured to have had the...

How to establish your EMPOWERED Leadership Brand

A leadership brand? What is that? Why would I need a brand as a leader? 

Sure, you've heard about branding from the perspective of businesses and marketing... but why have it for one person?

Well, you've heard about the concept of dressing for the position you want, not the position you have?

This is the same thing, behaving for the position you want to have, acting as the leader you want to be, being the change you want to see in your business and the world. 

So, let's jump in!

 

Why create your own "brand" as a leader?

The point to creating a Leadership Brand is to help you be more intentional with your leadership. In how you show up, what you prioritize, why you act the way you do, and the small daily details that end up creating the legacy you are known for.

There's a quote I enjoy that says, "Your energy announces your presence even before you enter the room."  

As leaders it is easy to get distracted by all the last-minute decisions, interruptions,...

  • Have you ever expected something to get done or be taken care of, but then it didn't happen?

But first a quick personal story to kick off the concept a bit clearer.

I once bought a used car and then years later ended up getting a flat tire. But when I went to use the spare tire in the back of the trunk, it didn't fit the bolts on the tire. So I...

Stuck in a Maze? How to Get Out with Ease!

Every high-achieving leader with big visions of where she/he wants to take their business, team and organization is very familiar with burnout and overwhelm.

  • Sure overwhelm can come from too much to do... massive workloads, lots of responsibility and people to watch over as well as your own responsibilities.
  • But overwhelm can also come from good things like... getting married, moving houses/cities, starting a business, creating something new, meeting new people, etc.

 

I'm totally familiar with both! At many times of my life!

Because as a high-achiever whose super passionate about many things, I often take on more than other people would think is a good idea.

Yup, I'm the gal that started an MBA while working full time, teaching a weekly meditation class while running a skin-care business and planning a wedding... but that wasn't enough! I also decided to bring my coaching business online and became a director on a non-profit board too!

And my stubborn side and...

Are you in SURVIVE Mode or THRIVE Mode?

The Thrive Matrix: What Is It & How to Use it?

Are you full of extra energy, inspiration and enthusiasm for life, leadership and business?

Or do you feel like you are you running on empty, broken down and needing serious repairs?

I have been in both spots at various stages of my career, business and personal life.

I know what it’s like to feel like everything is flowing, opportunities, ideas and synchronicity are popping up everywhere, you’re soaring and on top of the world. I call this THRIVE Mode.

And I also know what it’s like to feel lost, hopeless, rushing everywhere, forgetting things, dropping things and barely managing to keep up with work and life. I call this SURVIVE Mode.

Today, I have good news. You don’t have to stay in survive mode for long… You can get to THRIVE mode using my THRIVE Matrix!

And if you are currently THRIVING, this tool will help you spend more and more of your time there!
