I just finished authoring my Mastering Mindset white paper. You can get it for free by signing up here! It’s at the bottom of my Services page, where it says “Get it, Girl!” I was up until 2am doing it, and when I woke up this morning, I couldn’t believe how coherent it was because I know how bleary-eyed I was when I finished it. I’m not ashamed to say, y’all, that I teared up a little reading my own story. It’s so important to me that people at least know what this outward mindset is all about, so they have the option of giving it a try. It took me 53 years to figure this stuff out! And of course I’m still a work in progress, like we all are, so I sometimes still manifest that inward mindset that does not serve me at all.
EXERCISE: Let’s try some re-framing. Think back to a situation you were in, where tempers might have flared, where you might have been placing blame on someone for how they acted and made you feel. Now re-frame it. Imagine yourself instead of blaming, putting yourself in the shoes of the person you blamed. Come up with valid, supportive reasons for the way they acted. Dig deep for the compassion and kindness you know you have overflowing inside you. Apply it here. How does it look different? If you read my white paper, you’ll see how I did a “live reframing”, and how miraculous the results were. Gosh, I’m so proud of myself. And by the way, it’s perfectly fine, in fact encouraged, to be proud of yourself. You done good, girl! Be proud of that sh*t!
