So it’s January 12th and you’ve already blown it.

Week 5: Maximized Mindset Transformation…Solitude

This week we talked about a concept that was discussed briefly at the end of week 4: Who are YOU? Most of of believe that “Whatever does not kill me, makes me stronger.” While it’s a nice idea, it’s not truth. There is no evidence that a hurricane makes a building stronger. I’ve never seen a tornado make a house […]

Week 4: Maximized Mindset Transformation … That Voice.

That voice. We have the ability to choose the dialogue we believe and respond to.

New

How do I even start? It’s been a while since I wrote. Anything. It’s not that I’ve had nothing to say, but more that what I want to say is sometimes, not worth saying. The voice in my head, has been negative and toxic. So I broke up with it. I need a new start. I’ve needed it for a […]
