I remember a time when I used to always be worried about doing and saying the right thing.
I was always thinking scenarios over again. I would wonder if that person was talking about me.
It was crazy.
I was trying to keep up this image of the person I thought I was supposed to be.
I became very dark inside and I was on auto-pilot just living my life. My mind was always in the past, the future, and the what-ifs.
For so many years I was always worrying about everyone else opinions over my own.
But, I don’t live like that anymore.
I live in a place where I don’t give a f*ck.
I live in a place of ‘ let them talk about me. Let them talk about how I came out of nowhere.’
I found my voice, my self-love, my self-worth, and my self-acceptance.
I live with the lightbulb turned on inside. I live with freedom and flow mentally.
We become prisoners to our own life. We become prisoners to our own thoughts.
Your reality doesn’t have to be stuck in your thoughts. You...
The other day I was listening to a podcast with Tony Robbins and Gary Vee (Vaynerchuk) on the #AskGaryVee show.
One of the callers raised the attention that both of these guys were advocates for GRATITUDE and he asked how to create it.
He noticed that both of these influential people were always happy, positive, and optimistic.
He contributed this mental and emotional state to their success in life.
This is not a new concept. You already know if you speak positive, act positive, be positive, you will generally be living a life of happiness, gratitude, and joy.
The caller then went on to ask ‘ how does one go about creating gratitude in their life?’.
This question. This question right here is the golden question.
So how do you become so grateful?
You do this by bringing awareness to that which is good in your life.
You do this by producing thoughts and words that create a thought pattern of thankfulness for the good in your life.
But how do you do that?
One of the ways...
2 years ago I started to get this feeling like my life was about to shift.
I started to meditate more. I started to journal out my desires and goals. What I wanted my life to look like. I started to say out loud the things I desired.
It started with meditation. I started slowing down my life to be in the present moment and actually listen to my thoughts.
I would ask myself what I really wanted. What did I want my life to look like? Feel like?
I started to write my goals down more frequently. I started to read them every day and say them out loud.
I started to get deliberate about the changes I wanted in my life.
Then it happened, 2 months after this shift, I got let go from my last corporate job. I remember leaving that day thinking this is exactly what is supposed...
What's going on you beautiful human?
As you've noticed I have been rather quiet on the social networks over the last week and a bit.
During this time, I have been battling the ego mind that is telling me "what a failure I am for missing my emails".
The beat down of 'why can't I be consistent with my emails' is playing over and over again in my ego mind.
A part of me started to get really down on myself and let my ego mind in.
You might be thinking.....you are the mindset mentor, how is this happening to you?
The truth is.....I am burnt out.
Yup. The Mindset Mentor is burnt out (I am human after all!)
So how did I get here?
Well...I have been building a personal development company for the past 12 months. There has been many long days, nights, and months (and tears, anxiety, depression, doubt, etc).
I have been living in 3 different cities while helping a friend through a family death for the past 4 months and working full time for her business during the day.

In 2013 after spending the weekend partying at a music festival, drinking copious amounts of booze, consuming drugs, and getting hardly any sleep, I started to get little dots of dry red skin on my legs.
As the months went on, my partying and lifestyle went to a whole new level. The little red dots started showing up everywhere on my body. My legs, my arms, my face, my whole body was covered in these little red dots.
Naturally, the first thing I did was google ‘red dry skin dots on my body’. Self-prescribed doctor Danielle had everything under the sun!
Keep in mind at this point in my life I was just a motivated, rah-rah, positive person. I didn’t really understand the whole mindset, our spirit self, and what was really going on.
After going to the walk-in clinic, the verdict was “I am not sure what you have but take...
It's not uncommon for employees to have a bad day or two -- or week. And it's pretty common for the average person to gripe about a boss or co-worker from time to time. But how can you tell if it's just "one of those days" or something more serious?
