1: What’s Your Lens?

1: What's Your Lens?

Welcome to the podcast! I’m so thrilled you’re here with me on this journey. 

I’m kicking off this podcast with an introduction to your mindset. It’s the one thing we have complete control over. In this episode I go over what a mindset is and how your thoughts and feelings affect your behavior.

What is a mindset? Simply put, it is the lens through which you view your life. Some of you already think of yourselves as positive people, while others might see themselves as realists or even pessimists. No matter how you categorize yourself, you probably view your mindset as part of who you are. If that’s the case, that means you think you have a fixed mindset.

The reality is that we all choose our mindsets. Of course, if we aren’t being deliberate and intentional with our choices, we might not even notice that we are making choices at all. 

Truthfully, you can change your mindset and I can help you learn how to make that change. That means that you no longer have to wait for the perfect circumstances to feel a certain way about life. You can regain control of your thoughts and emotions to see different outcomes. Different outcomes mean a different life. That’s the power of choosing your mindset. 

Before we can begin changing our mindset, we have to understand our current lens. Take some time over the next few days to observe your thoughts and emotions. As you become a watcher of your own thoughts, resist the urge to judge. Simply notice. If you observe any negative thoughts or emotions, write them down. Becoming more in tune with your present mindset is the first step to creating a mindset that will help you uplevel your money and your life.

In this episode, we explore:

  • How your fixed mindset is impacting your emotions, your thoughts, and your beliefs
  • What it means to choose a new mindset that transforms you from powerless to empowered
  • The power of becoming a watcher of your own thoughts
  • The first step in transforming your mindset to level up your life
