A $200,000 mindset shift (May 7, 2024)

This is a mindset tweak I learned from a life coach who charges $200,000 a year for his coaching (per client) 🤯

By the way, he requires his clients to travel to him to work together ✈️

It has helped me progress toward my outrageous goal of recording 40 YouTube videos this year that will help parents, educators and students enhance their executive function skills. 📈

If you are a parent or educator, try asking these questions to your student and see what happens.

What is the $200,000 mindset shift?

Instead of asking WHAT you need to DO to accomplish your goal. 

Ask yourself, WHO do I need to BE to accomplish the goal? Do you need to be...

  • Focused?

  • Resilient? 

  • Committed?

  • Strategic? 

Here is why this works 🛠️  

When life happens and you miss one of those self-imposed deadlines, instead of giving up, you can re-focus and ask yourself the following questions. 

Who am I being? 

Who do I want to be? 

Then, instead of feeling guilt for missing a deadline, you can respond to the moment, and make lemonade from lemons 🍋

The bottom line

Every moment is an opportunity to align yourself 🧘‍♂️ with your core values and act from that operating system (not the reactive guilt of missing a to-do)

At the end of the day (and life), it’s less about WHAT you’re doing and more about WHO you’re being.

I'm choosing resilient, loving, and flexible 💛

WHO are you going to be today?
