Are You an Example of What You Ask of Others?

In the Mindset Coach Academy, its Month 4 which means coaches are stepping into being a Mental Training Expert! Yikes!
 
One part of this is that they make a video. Of themselves. Teaching one mindset tool. (You may have seen some of them in our private Facebook group as they share these videos.)
 
For many of these students, this is their first time teaching mental training on camera. For some of them, it triggers feelings of nervousness. Others aren’t necessarily scared of the camera but they self-sabotage in other ways; by getting into a perfectionism mindset, for example. They want everything about the video to be JUST RIGHT. Maybe they are waiting for the stars to align or for divine inspiration to strike.
 
Either way, they are stalling. Some of them have posted their videos, many have excuses why they haven’t. As you might imagine, most of the excuses aren’t absolute barriers but are rather rooted in fear or in perfectionism. Keep in...

What Scares the Sh** Out of You: Running TOWARDS Failure

I signed up for an 8 week Improv class last week. Not because I wanted to but because I DID NOT WANT TO.

In the Mindset Coach Academy we are Running Towards Failure this week. Which means we are doing something that scares the s*** out of us. Something we are not good at yet. Something where we will stumble and be uncomfortable and fail and grow.

And I DO what I teach. So, I’m right there with my students, running towards failure. I have to be…. No, I GET to be an example of what is possible. So, I went first. And I signed up for an Improv class.

Why Improv?

Much like playing, I know speaking and communication often comes down to practice/preparation and then BEING in the moment, trusting yourself, being totally vulnerable and going for it.

I felt that so much on the court as a player and it was the BEST feeling. But it takes guts to really trust yourself and to really leave it all out on the court. And I feel that way about speaking and selling and just...

How I 'Get it All Done': Life Mindset and Time Management

 

Life. IS. CRAZY. With kids, a business, a house, and a hubby- It's complete chaos in my life most of the time.

How To Journal Like A Boss #MT30 Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of #MT30! If you haven't yet, seen it, Day 1: How to use music to compete like a champ can be found here. Now for today's tip...

One of the most difficult parts of journaling is staying honest with yourself which is why I've found it super helpful to have rules when I journal or when I have my clients do it. When you free write without any rules, you run the risk of editing your work as you write, defeating the purpose entirely. The point of journaling is to get your raw feelings out on paper, not to be 'correct' or to work on your writing style, punctuation etc.

In the following video and subsequent article, I lay out my 4 rules that have taken my journaling to 'ehhh' (and not that helpful) to creating goals, visions, and insight that just flat out weren't happening before. Plus, with these new rules, I feel so much more motivated to journal because I KNOW it's a great use of my time.

Here are a few tips for staying honest while journaling. You can use...
