Mindsets for Success

Choose a Company You’re a Customer For

Take inventory. What are your favorite brands, whose products you already love? Those companies are great candidates for you to work for! Go pitch ’em.

Worst-Case Scenario

To let go of anxiety about the future, fully picture your worst-case scenario.

Say you lost your job, family, and everything but the clothes on your back, what would you do?

You could probably crash on a friend’s couch for a while, pick up a quick wage job, start pitching new companies with the value creation mindset, and start to get back on track.

Your mindset is everything.
It’s your most valuable asset.
Never forget that.

Quote of the Week

“Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful, lest you let other people spend it for you.”

— Carl Sandburg

Are You Investing In Yourself?

Many people will easily drop $50 bucks at the bar on the weekend.

But investing $100 one time in an online course?
Investing in healthy food?
Investing in personal development?

Those are all “luxuries,” supposedly.

The don’t fit in the budget.

But going to the bar? That’s just normal expenses!


By all means be conscious about where your money goes, and keep a budget.

But ask yourself if you’re on auto pilot when it comes to assuming you “can’t afford” X.

Maybe, if you keep telling yourself that story, it’s true.

Could you choose a new story?

How about, “Money flows easily and abundantly for me.”

You might feel uncomfortable about saying that, but why not test it out for a while?

Either way, take a look at how you are prioritizing your spending and ask if it’s on really what matters, and if it’s bringing you ROI.

Going to the bar isn’t immoral or anything, but what does it bring you in the long run?

What if you re-prioritized that towards investing in your mental health, physical health, personal growth, or professional growth?

Be honest. Be conscious.
