Mindset: The New Strength Training

Mindset: The New Strength Training

There’s alot of talk around mindset. Why is mindset so important?

Just like strength training is to your muscles i.e. growth, shape, strength and clean eating is to your body i.e. healthy weight, clear mind, good energy, mindset give you that strength and control in your thoughts and beliefs.

I’ll go alittle deeper.

Mindset looks at your thoughts, feelings and beliefs, Your thoughts are electric sending out a signal. Your feelings are magnetic, what you are feeling is drawing in to you experiences- good and bad. And your Beliefs control, dictate, oversee what you think and how/what you feel.

So mindset works in all of these areas- thought, feelings and beliefs. Change your beliefs and your thoughts shift, your feelings become less or non- resistant. You can change your thoughts by seeing new perspectives, leaning in to a new focal point. With that you can shift your feelings about the thing you were charged up about- having reoccurring patterns, negative experiences or not able to reach the results you are working towards. Your feelings shift as you allow acknowledge and celebrate your shift, essentially letting go of the old limitation. You have come into a new mindset around that pattern, topic or experience. This is growth and strengthening your mind to be in alignment with your true self.

Mindset is something to train daily. Whether it be a podcast, book, you tube, seminar, journaling, meditation, something that encourages you to think, feel and believe in the unseen…That which you Desire. Desire is a feeling, turn that on and you are on your way to seeing that which you desire in your heart to be true begin to unfold and manifest.

Just like strength training takes time to build your muscles, resiliency, mindset take proper work, focus and attention.

Mindset is the operating system behind your thoughts feelings and actions. These all lead to habits. What we know about healthy habits is they lead to results plus confidence, goal setting and action which I’ll define as the work plus rest/reset. Mindset is a series of training to find the best version of yourself. Aligned with your own identity and your own beliefs.

Being in community with likeminded people, having support systems which believe and identify what you do adds to your ability to shift your mindset into one that feels true, organic, natural in alignment and excites you.

Mindset is also what separates top elite level athletes with others. These athletes have a belief, a passion, resolve so strong they become unshakeable, unbreakable. Think Tom Brady, Wayne Gretzky and Simone Biles. This is another aspect Mindset holds power.

You have many ways to work and strengthen your Mindset. Let’s get to work, what are you going to begin with?

Mental and Emotional Key Strategies to Wellness

Mental and Emotional Key Strategies to Wellness

Mental and emotional wellness is a very broad topic. What I’m here to address, suggest, inspire and bring to light is a fresh perspective on mental and emotional health.

Just as we go through life stages, growth and development physically, we as humans are designed to go through growth and development mentally and emotionally. In order to grow mentally we need mental stimulation, or intellectual stimulation. Not in the form of following a path or rules set forth by others, rather by exploring beliefs, ideas and concepts where we are strengthening and formulating our own beliefs and ideas and, applying them in our own lives. What this does is shift our mindset from a very fixed belief or idea and expands into a new area. This provides one with the capability to think for themselves.

Emotional wellness requires you to release, remove, relinquish the pain causes by the disruptive emotion. Emotions are energy in motion. With an unstable, disruptive emotion resulting from being triggered you continue to repeat the pattern of unhealthy emotional reaction.

The two issues with Mental and Emotional Wellness I am pointing our are repeating patterns without finding a solution or strategy to move beyond the fixed point.

Here are 4 Key Strategies to Mental and Emotional Wellness:

  1. Be willing to observe your experiences from the places and environments you are in to the belief systems of these environments. When you are in an environment that stifles your ideas, creativity, your ability to define success and happiness on your own terms to feel safe in your own identity, your mental and emotional health will need to settle. In this kind of environment you will be triggered and run in a cycle. As you settle, gain your bearings, look around, find a new environment. Trust your inner compass, stretch your mindset, your beliefs and trust the feelings of belonging and happiness you desire. Then act.
  2. Honor your emotions and feelings. You have the power and the ability to listen, feel and trust your emotions and feelings. In situations that challenge your beliefs and ideas, that make you wrong, bad, devalue you, and/or cut your own feelings of joy and belonging it becomes personal power to honor and own your own true feelings. Stand strong, stand tall, stand proud, let your own emotions flow and move through you.
  3. Apply the wisdom of the season. This winter as we come to a close of the year, of a cycle, you are given the dark of longer nights to turn in and let go, to shed old programming, old patterns or habits that no longer will move you forward in the new year. The dark is a great place to release, to let go, turn in and comfort yourself, bringing your feelings and emotions to the surface, free them making space for the new. The new may yet to be determined. You’ll gather your own new from mental stimulation with freedom of thoughts, feelings, ideas, beliefs and joy. The next cycle, chapter and growth.
  4. Trust in the process of growth organically and intuitively. Human beings are designed to grow, contribute, build and connect. When you allow and give yourself time and space to clear, heal, transmute, release and flow your emotions and your mindset, you open to and connect to your Divinity. In this process you restore your connection to your source, you believe in your message and mission. Your flow for Divine Timing, Manifestation and Alignment all take root in your being. This is Mental and Emotional Wellness. You’re open receptive, allowing, and sending out signals that match you from the place of your emotions flowing freely with connection to your own Being.

This is the season to Tune in, to Turn in and to Trust. Here, during the shift to longer nights you are supported in shaking off the old. All the ways your beliefs, mindset, current connections/groups are fixed, limited in expansion and growth and all the ways your emotions have been stuck, stifled, disrupted, diffused or extinguished. This is the season to allow the freedom of your mind and of your heart. To trust in your own unique path, settle in and give yourself time and space to move mentally and emotionally and watch how your world transforms. It’s here your physical world connects to your path; to the people, environments, culture, experiences and opportunities you have been seeking.
