Why You Won't Win Everyone Over (and Why That's a Good Thing!)

I used to want to be liked. I mean, don’t we all? While there are some people that don't care (which I admire), those people are few and far between... and I'm not one of them. I actually have to work at it. 

I don’t mean I WANT to be disliked; that would be ridiculous. I mean it more in the words of my wise cousin Jamie who says, 

"Lindsey, to be successful you have to have a healthy disrespect for other people’s opinions.”

(Those are my magic words before I speak in public by the way. Use them, they work)

But you may have noticed, I’m less scripted, less pleasing in my writing and marketing than before. Of course, I didn’t THINK I was editing myself, but turns out, I was. But I did it in such a minimal way that I convinced myself that I wasn't doing it at all. Sneaky, huh?

I’ve been empowered by a number of things- Motherhood, the development of my programs to align with EXACTLY what I want to do, my own mindset work,...

How to Become the Master of Your Free Time

Like many of you, I have a lot of balls in the air every day. I’m wearing one hat in the morning, then I switch to another, then I switch to yet another and around and around we go. And that is on a GOOD day.

Things get thrown off one way or another all the time; someone gets sick, emotions get the better of me, or the unexpected ‘to do’s’ take center stage.

It’s easy to be overwhelmed. AND it feels justified. But what if it isn’t?

I read a book a few years ago and it SO hit home because it challenged this cultural belief that we HAVE NO TIME.

The Truth About Time

Forgive me for paraphrasing a really good book, but this is what I took away from it (mind you, some of this is probably my own thoughts triggered by this book):

  • We have something like 30 hours of leisure time a week.
  • We CHOOSE to be busy.
  • We are addicted to being busy.
  • Prioritize your time and you’ll find you have more of it.

Honestly, I think about this book...

How Your Brain Tricks You Into Playing it Safe

 

One of the things we know about the human brain is that is VERY good at doing the task at hand IF it has the right system operating. But each system has BOTH limitations and attributes. Its strengths in one situation can present as weaknesses in another.

I like to think of it as trying to create a PowerPoint on Microsoft word. I mean, you can kind of do it but it will be messy and WAY harder than if you just switch systems. Why not use the system that was DESIGNED to create a presentation?

Fight or Flight

This is particularly relevant when we are talking about our sympathetic nervous system. This is the part of your body that's responsible for how you respond to danger and for firing the fight or flight response to help you survive.  This response system is highly evolved and is the reason why humans are alive today.

In historic times, the fight or flight response fired when anytime there was a real risk of physical danger present. Now, it fires...

In my previous video blog, I talked about selling, and it resonated with a lot of you. The truth is, everybody is selling something, even if it's just selling yourself as an asset. Often, we hide what we really care about, our gifts, from the world. We justify this by telling ourselves our message isn't well thought out enough, or people won't be interested in it. Perhaps we think about how other people are already out there doing it 'better' than we are, or we know that even if our message connects to one person, there will be a lot of people that won't receive it. So, we hide our...

Want to be a Mindset Coach? Learn to sell or you will always work for someone who can.

 

In order to become a successful mental training coach, you have to be able to do these 3 things:

  1. Have Mental Training skills
  2. Be able to TEACH mental training
  3. Be able to SELL mental training

Oftentimes, people are naturally good at one of these, maybe two if they're lucky. Rarely are people good at all three without having to really work at it. That said, you have to do all three in order to be able to make a big impact on your athletes and run a successful business. The good news is, it's not rocket science, EVERYONE can learn how to be good at all three, you just have to be willing to learn. 

In my experience, most people struggle with the selling part above all else; it doesn't come naturally to a lot of people (including me). Although you may prefer to have someone else sell your services for you, the reality is, that's not usually an option.

The reason I've been successful at being a mindset coach is because I learned how to sell. You HAVE to learn how to...
