Announcement - Mindset Book Coming!
If you've been wondering why the blog has been more sporadic, you're not alone. I don't know if it's just my guilt, but I have been wanting to at least explain my hiatus/absence from posting regular blogs. I have not stopped writing, and I'm happy to announce that I've been writing through my first book. I'm almost done with the first draft and will let everyone know when it's ready for publication. This is a huge milestone for me and I'm looking forward to sharing it.
The working title is "Crafting a Transformational Mindset - How to Consistently Smash Your Goals and Improve Your Health, Wellbeing, and Career." As you might be aware, the first and foundational pillar of my coaching process is mindset. It's so integral and I feel in a lot of ways, this prevents people from even seeking help from others or a professional or even implementing things they learn from books, podcasts, and blogs (like this one). It's not that we're not ready to change, it's that that we either feel paralyzed from indecision or self talk or we keep taking steps forward and become locked into a cycle of relapse and guilt which just serves to frustrate and overwhelm us. Which in turn, fuels feelings of "not enough" and plummeting self worth.
The goal of this book is to re-create step by step this crucial turning point in taking back control of our health and life. How transformation begins internally by becoming aware and acknowledging our own feeling and thought processes, and learning to reframe them and get clarity on what's really important.
I also plan on including a lot of exercises that you can use to take a self-inventory of what thoughts are hindering and helping and your current habits so you can learn to flip the script of negative beliefs and build a lifestyle that's aligned to your values. The workbook will include translating these aspirations, values, and thoughts into a concrete plan of action month-by-month. I hope this helps lessen the tendency we all have to fall off of the wagon and what actually seems to work, as evidenced by cognitive psychology and in others' lives.
To celebrate, I want to post some of the excerpts in the near future. Stay tuned!
