Mindset on Fire E-Course

Isn’t it time you squished your doubts and fears and find a way to start taking action?

Welcome to the Mindset on Fire E-Course!

Years ago, I told myself that I couldn’t do all the things I wanted to do. Riddled with my own inadequacies that I felt and coupled with sociatal conditioning, I didn’t take action.

I simply maintained in this place of frustration, even though I knew deep down there was a better way and yet for the life of me I couldn’t figure it out.

And the more I moved into personal development, self-help and my own mental health, I realized it all had to do with mindset!

If mindset is everything, then that is where you'll need to start! Click To Tweet

But it was so much bigger than just working on my mindset. It was about recognizing how far I have already come and having the clarity on where I wanted to go, what I was standing up for and how I was going to show up in this world.

This course has 6 modules with video and a guided handbook to help you work through each section.

You will not only create a vision of your life but also have clarity on the path you are taking.

You will develop a mindset practice that works for you because I truly believe that there is no size fits all, but once you know what works for you, there isn’t another way.

You will make a plan on how to go about it while tackeling the beast of sabotage. Because the ego is fickle beast and wants to keep you playing it small and safe. But you are not here to do any of that. You are here to live life with passion and isn’t it time you do just that?

And then of course you will absolutely celebrate everything you achieve from here on out. You deserve to recognize the work you put in, the action you take and the success you reap from it. This isn’t about bragging but owning how powerful you are.

I am so excited it’s here. New pages all ready for you to color and intuitively map out your life.

Why I created the Handbook

Because I wanted something that felt personal and true to me as I wanted to achieve goals that felt in alignment with who I am.

I needed something that allowed me to call in all that I wanted to be, do and have, and I wasn’t finding it in any other workbook or planner that I had purchased.

How it has changed my life

The handbook’s focus is to create a life according to your vision. I recently sat down to do a review for this year’s handbook, and my jaw dropped as I realized that several things have come to be a reality in my life.

This meant, I found what worked for me and I am so excited to share my handbook with you in hopes that it will do the same for you.

Freedom

Freedom, the ability to take detours

Road trips have this thing that allows you to feel the freedom, to embrace the adventure.

There’s something exciting when you are heading out onto the road with destination unknown and then trying to maneveur your way back at the end of the day.

Road trips are the mirror reflection of what life represents to me.

We all come to a crossroad at one point or another, literally and figuratively.

It was during one of our roadtrips we decided to go one way, not thinking about the fact it would take us 5 hours longer to get there, talk about taking a detour home.

And we also didn’t have the foresight to turn around and go head home on a three hour drive.

The day had been amazing, the evening spend dinner during sunset and heading home the scenic route, except it was dark.

The frustration grew as we realized that this may not be the best way home.

Freedom to take detours! 

That freedom is what we crave and we at times create without thinking about it. It’s the ability to see that even though you are taking the longer way home, there is goodness within this situations.

When you come to your crossroad and happen to take the detour, find that goodness.

For me it was that I could spend a few more hours with my guys before getting back to reality of work.

Roadtrips help me disengage from sitting behind the computer for too long, or scroll through Facebook endlessly without getting anything done.

Taking detours, allows me to reflect where I am in the moment and where I would rather be and how can I best get back on track to head into the proper direction.

Yes, detours are annoying and frustrating when you realize that perhaps another way would have been better.

But what if for just one moment, you appreciate the detour you’ve taken, find and see the good and take a moment to reflect on where you really want to go?

I created this tote, to remember this moment and remind myself that there will always be a detour of some kind!

You can get yourself a tote, so you may always be reminded that detours are actually a beautiful part of your journey!

18 Ways to a Mindset On Fire

18 Ways to a Mindset on Fire

For many years I didn’t understand what mindset was. As a matter of fact, it wasn’t even part of my vocabulary. What I do know is that a successful mindset for me was all was a part of who I am. This is how and why I was able to face many challenges I encountered through the years.

I’ve compiled a list of 18 ways to create a Mindset on Fire

Use what feels good, try new things and trust that you have what it takes to create the life you want.

Be open 

It’s through openness that we are allowing us to be willing to see opportunities and possibilities. We obtain information when we are needing it the most. It’s the magnetic way of coexisting with the universe.

Be optimistic 

A negative and pessimistic mind has never achieved anything successfully unless you consider living in misery a success. Being optimistic is more than just hoping though. It’s about an inner knowing that everything will be as you want it. Maybe not overnight, but in time.

Learn from experience 

We have all made mistakes and decisions that ended up being a slap in the face of some kind. It’s in that situation however that you gain so much information that will help you next time you face a similar situation.

Be a student of and for life 

Even at the perfect moments, there is something to learn. It’s in those moments we can acknowledge what we did that went well and how we went about it. And even if we are facing new challenges, we can ask you, what do I need to learn to get to where I want to be!

Allow the actions to guide your decisions 

Sometimes we do have to act before we make a decision. It’s like trying on that new outfit at the store, deciding if we want to buy it or not. You can always make new decisions!

Challenge the status quo 

There’s no right or wrong way in forging your own path, and sometimes that means going against what everyone else is doing or thinking. I believe that we are here to show other’s what their life could feel and be like by simply giving a different perspective.

Process and analyze often

Our thoughts and behavior are intertwined, and we are not always aware of them. When you can acknowledge why you do something, where it stems from (and it’s often from your childhood) you can engage new thoughts and behavior.

Change what you can about yourself 

If you are playing small, hiding from you truly are, start there. If you don’t like something about yourself, change it. Want to be more assertive, then seek the information that you will need to be more assertive.

Take the next step even you think you are finished 

Sometimes we think we are all finished with something, just to realize that there is another step to take.

Always be true to you 

There’s nothing worse than pretending something you are not or now showing up as who you are by hiding behind a charade. You have values and core beliefs that are true to you, show them, live by them.

Start small when necessary and you feel the need to 

Sometimes goals can look bigger than Mt. Everest. It’s in those moments that it’s good to remember that no mountain is climbed through big actions, but rather one small step at a time.

Believe in you, your dreams and your journey

If you don’t believe in yourself, who will? You have to without a shadow of a doubt believes in you, your dreams and your journey. Your faith will be tested over and over again and that is what this matters so much.

Have rituals 

Have a morning and/or evening routine that helps you shatter the doubts that may have crept up overnight. Be it through journaling, meditating or exercising. Crush those doubts and make them shiver with fear.

Make no excuses

Truly, excuses are only going to keep you playing small and fuel the avoidance of really showing up in this world. No one has ever achieved a goal by saying they can’t do something.

Be relentless

If you want to achieve your dreams and goals you have to keep going after them. like a wolf goes after its prey. (and I may have just been reading too many werewolf books).

View problems as challenges

Stop thinking that they are here to stop you. Instead view them as a challenge, as that next goal and figure out how to overcome it, instead of throwing up your hands and walking away.

Have a vision

If you don’t know where you are going, how will you know that you are arriving at each stopping point? Having a vision of dreams and goals and what you want your life to be like, is of the essence.

Be courageous despite fear

Have the courage to take action even when you are scared. Confidence is creating through doing and not waiting for the right moment. It’s in those actions you can really see how amazing you are!

self-acceptance

A journey of Self-Acceptance

I’ve always felt different since I was very little. Like I didn’t fit in or belonged anywhere. This was fueled by being a foster kid and then later when I immigrated to the U.S.

It’s like I didn’t have a place to call home and walking lost in this world trying to find my way.

It didn’t help me that I felt things so strongly, knew the feelings of those around me even if we never spoke about them. It’s then I discovered that I am an empath and that I also am clairsentient, which to me, of course, goes hand in hand.

But there was more. Because I don’t follow mainstream very easily and it had me again wondering what was wrong with me? Aside, the fact, that I didn’t have to like what other people liked, it still made me feel like I didn’t fit in anywhere.

It became frustrating, to say the least. I wanted to talk about the latest personal development book, but couldn’t/can’t get myself to read it. I wanted to talk about the latest TV Show, to have that thing in common with others. But it still eluded me.

But there is always light at the end of the tunnel and as I was on my own journey, I started paying attention to my intuition. I analyzed what it meant to the past and current situations, and came to the conclusion that my intuition repels what does not move me forward.

Think about it, if your gut, your intuition gives you a big fat no, it’s doing it because it’s your internal knowledge center. It’s connected to the higher powers that be to ensure that you are walking the path that is only intended for you.

This means that being a rebel, going against the status quo is the thing you ought to be doing. Even if it means you get the eye roll or question from those around you that may not understand.

And in the end, I am not so much different and neither are you.

Feelings and thoughts are universal.

This is how your journey to self-acceptance comes about. When you can recognize that there is a commonality among us, that in the end, we want a life that feels amazing and that we are all just going differently about it.

I believe that we all are here to give each other a different perspective, to learn and grow from. And that may just be the best thing ever.

your way

3 Tips on doing it all your way

There is no one size, one system or one path that fits all. To think that there could be is an illusion and a huge disservice to you.

Sure, there are elements that may have commonality and this is where these three tips can come in handy!

Be open to learning

You don’t know, what you don’t know and the only way to know is to learn. Shutting yourself out from the openness to new information causes you to stay stuck and hinders the progress you would like to see in your life or business.

Tune into your intuition

Your intuition will help you discern what feels good, what information you want to apply and guides you on your own journey. They someone achieves their goals, may not be your way, trust that this is okay. Your intuition has no room for envy on how someone achieves their success. We are all on a different path and while the journey can look similar, how it’s achieved may not be.

Implement what feels good

When you have opened yourself to learning and taken in the information, given your intuition permission to guide you, it’s time to implement what feels good. Sure, there are things we all have to do that we don’t enjoy and some of those things can and ought to be delegated, but not everything can be. But the more you do that feels good, the less you are avoiding those that don’t.

Some things that can help is to look at it from a new perspective. Instead of saying “I have to do x, y, and z… you could simply say “I get to do x, y, and z …”

You don’t have to do anything, okay well except maybe pay taxes and such, but when it comes to your life or your business. you don’t have to do anything except what you want.

There’s is no diet that is the true and right way.

There’s no goal setting that is true and the right way.

There’s no business system that is true and the right way.

There is, however, your way.

And what that looks like is totally up to you.

You just have to decide what it is you want, start learning and begin to implement.
