Recapping this week’s DJH
Mindsets for Success
Meditate to Improve Your Career
I’ve been meditating 5 minutes a day for over 10 years. This habit is like a Zamboni smoothing out the ice-rink, before I start to skate for the day.
All my creative and productive power for the day rests on the clear mind that results from these 5 minutes. This one small change could set you on a totally new life trajectory.
The Fear of Personal Branding
You might be in a job you hate and want to change things, but you fear building your brand and portfolio publicly so you can become more attractive to a new company. Everyone has their own preferences about how open they want to be online, which is all well and good.
But are you operating out of fear?
Let go of fear, and move into trust, my dear reader.

Quote of the Week
“If you are not excited about it, it may not be the right path.”
— Abraham Hicks
Add the New Mindset, Shed the Old Mindset
Positive affirmations can be great, but they can also be pointless.
It depends on your relationship to them.
If you chant in the mirror “I’m good enough,” that can be a great new seedling to plant, cultivate, and harvest for your future self.
The thing is, if deep down you actually believe “I’m NOT good enough,” will you get many results?
Probably not. It’ll be like adding air freshener to the dog-crap…. It might help in the short term, but it doesn’t solve the root problem.
So the optimal approach to personal development and mindset growth is to do both: add the new mindset WHILE shedding the old one.
You want to plant new seeds, AND remove the weeds.
This means letting go of deep-rooted limiting beliefs while also empowering yourself with a fresh mindset of creativity, empowerment, and action bias.
With career growth specifically, you need to add the new mindset of video pitching, personal branding, and creating social capital. AND you need to shed the old mindset of rule following, waiting for permission, and fear of standing out from the crowd.
If you do both of these, you can cultivate a brand new mental garden that will make you an unstoppable, 21st-century value creator.
Will you empower yourself?
