We live in time of entrepreneurship. Even people with full time jobs are likely to have a side hustle. Today, anyone can start a business if they have the right mindset.It’s easy to look at influencers and entrepreneurs and assume they got lucky, but the truth is, it takes a lot of work and a lot of passion.So today we’re going to go deep into the mindset of a highly successful entrepreneur. Our guest is my friend and mentor Pat Flynn – a beloved thought leader in the areas of online entrepreneurship, digital marketing, and lifestyle businesses. He is an entrepreneur, blogger and podcaster best known for his blog and podcast Smart Passive Income, where he conducts income experiments and shares the results.Pat’s podcast was the very first podcast I got hooked on. What drew me to him was how authentic and genuine he was when he was sharing knowledge. In fact, he was the person who taught me the ins-and-outs of podcasting AND he was one of the people who helped me gain more clarity around my purpose.When I think of an entrepreneur, Pat is one of the first people who comes to mind because of how many things he’s got his hands in… from Kickstarter to podcasts to blogs to YouTube… he even started a business on a topic he knew nothing about – food trucks – just to show with the right technique and most importantly, the right MINDSET, anyone can be successful while building a life they truly love.Today we will learn:How to decide your next big moveHow to find people who align with your missionHow work life balance is less about balance and more about finding your centerSupport Mind Love's Sponsors: Talkspace ← Use code MINDLOVE for $65 off your first monthCitizenryPodcast.com ← Use code MINDLOVE for $50 off your purchase of $200+FunctionOfBeauty.com/MINDLOVE  ← Get 20% off your first order Show Notes: https://mindlove.com/087Learn more about your ad choices.

Have you ever thought of what it would take to get to absolute peak performance in your body, career, or just life in general?I remember watching the Olympics as a kid and thinking, "Those people must just be built differently. They probably always knew they were destined to make it to the top."It's easy to make assumptions, but sometimes our assumptions are just excuses that give us an out for our own greatness.Today I'm extra excited because we're talking to my friend Sarah Wells. We've become close this last year, both leveling ourselves up (which by the way is one of the best ways to surround yourself by people who will lift you higher).Sarah Wells is an Olympic 400 meter hurdler, and the founder of the Believe Initiative. She explains how the power of believing in yourself can help you accomplish anything you set your mind to. Plus she gives us insight into what it takes to become world-class in anything.Today we will learn:How to get back up when life gets you downUniversal principles to becoming the best at anythingHow to expand your self-beliefs to achieve anything Support Mind Love's Sponsors: PolicyGenius.comShow Notes: https://mindlove.com/086Learn more about your ad choices.

There’s a saying, “Expectations are premeditated resentments.” We project our past into our future or we hold people and circumstances to imaginary standards.But just because we expect something, doesn’t mean it will happen.This becomes a real problem when we pin our hopes on happiness on having our expectations fulfilled.It’s basically giving the reigns of our happiness to our circumstances or to other people.We all face setbacks we cannot control, yet we often forget that we have a choice about how to handle those setbacks. The “Expectation Hangovers” we feel in the wake of disappointment, failure, or loss can become doorways to tremendous opportunities and life-changing gifts.Managing your expectations is not about lowering your standards. Today we talk to Master coach Christine Hassler who specializes in radical self-reflection. We talk on how to pursue the right goals for the right reasons and also what to do when things don’t work out as expected.Today we will learn:The difference between Intention vs expectationPractical steps to releasing expectation in relationshipsHow to stop judging your emotionsSupport Mind Love's Sponsors: Talkspace ← Use code MINDLOVE for a FREE WEEK!Show Notes: https://mindlove.com/085Sign up for the Morning Mind Love here!Learn more about your ad choices.

Millennials are the most stressed generation that has ever existed. We’re all stressed because we’re living in a time where our environments are evolving at a faster than our biology can keep up with.This stress and overwhelm is making millions of us sick, tired and frustrated. But we can’t solve stress and overwhelm by doing more and more of what we’ve been doing. We need a way to overcome it.Instead of just  meditating between twice during our 18 hour days and deep breathing through our 72 tasks each day, imagine if we could find a way to really focus on what matters so we could give our full energy to. Those things.Our guest today is Dr. Samantha Brody. She is a licensed naturopathic physician and acupuncturist, and the founder of Evergreen Natural Health Center in Portland, OR. Dr. Samantha says “You don’t need new ways to manage your stress, you need to/prevent/it from overwhelming you in the first place.”So today she’s going to help us systematically undo overwhelm.We will learn: * How to identify what’s truly important to you* How to identify the roadblocks that get in the way of making change* How to align your self care with your valuesSupport Mind Love's Sponsors: FabFitFun.com← use code MINDLOVE for $10 your first boxPolicyGeniusCitizenryPodcast.com ← use code MINDLOVE for $50 your purchase of $200 or moreShow Notes: https://mindlove.com/082Learn more about your ad choices.

It's crazy that we don't really learn how to take care of ourselves in a way that will help us live long, healthy, optimal lives. Unless we seek the information ourselves, we don’t learn real nutrition, how to manage our emotions, or how to find fulfillment.Then so many of us reach a point where we think, is this all there is? If I’m not happy now, will I ever be?The takeaway is that we need to take our health and happiness into our own hands. We need to learn how to really truly care for ourselves.People will read tons of books on how to care for their new baby, but a lot of people don’t even think to read a book on how to take care of themselves… ironic right?When you educate yourself on nutrition and superfoods, you can level up your brain and body in powerful ways.Today’s episode covers a range in health care, from nutrition to finding our passion.Our guest is celebrity chef and nutritionist, Serena Poon. Her mission to promote further education around the mindful combination of food, nutrition and healing intuition in what she has coined, “Culinary Alchemy™.”Today we will learn:Why self-care is the least selfish thing you can doHow to break free from emotional dependencyHow to satisfy unhealthy cravings in healthier waysSupport Mind Love's Sponsors: Talkspace ← Use code MINDLOVE for $45 off your first monthStoryworth.com/MINDLOVE ← Get $20 OFF when you subscribeLearn more about your ad choices.

If you find it hard to be assertive, directly ask for what you want, or say “no” to others, then you just might be suffering from too much niceness.People pleasing shows up in a lot of different forms. We sometimes bed our wills and tend to the desires of people around us, we may not stand up for ourselves, we might just avoid conflict.How would your life change if you could easily say “no” when you want to and need to, confidently ask for what you want, speak up more freely in all your relationships… all without feeling guilty or anxious or worrying about what others thought?Our guest today is Dr. Aziz. He is a clinical psychologist and one of the world’s leading experts on social confidence.Today we will learn:How too much niceness actually causes painHow to create boundaries and get the courage to speak upHow to go from self-sacrificing to healthy self-interestSupport Mind Love's Sponsors: ThirdLove.com/MINDLOVE for 15% off your first purchasePoshmark ← Use code MINDLOVE for $5 OFF your first purchaseShow Notes: https://mindlove.com/080Learn more about your ad choices.

Intuition is actually one of the most practical tools that we have as human beings, both in business and in life. It helps you make faster decisions, it helps you connect with yourself and make choices based on what’s right for you.If we want to be brilliant, or an innovator, or be ahead of the curve, we have to make decisions faster. We have to be able to trust our instincts. And we have to be willing to invest in our own ideas before something’s already been proven.Our relationships with ourselves, should be the strongest relationships that we have, and the more we lean on guidance outside of ourselves, we weaken that relationship.We should know our body signals. We should know when our body is telling us no, or pushing us to move forward. We should know how to trust ourselves when our inner voice is screaming at us.Today's episode is about using intuition in your decision making, whether for life, or for business.Our guest is Rick Snyder, the CEO of Invisible Edge™, an international consulting company that serves high level executives and companies to make innovative decisions based their inner guidance. Snyder combines his MA in psychology with his business experience to strengthen intuitive intelligence and create breakthrough strategies.Today we will learn:To demystify intuitionThe 5 things that get in the way of our intuitionPractical exercises to tap into our inner wisdomSupport Mind Love's Sponsors: Four Sigmatic← Use code MINDLOVE for 15% off your entire orderBlume← Text MIND to 797979 for 25% off and FREE shippingTalkspace ← Use code MINDLOVE for $45 off your first monthVistaprint.com ←Use promo code MINDLOVE for 500 custom business cards starting at $9.99Learn more about your ad choices.

thank you so very much for the insight and love you send out into the world through your poscast! I am a new listener and resonate deeply with all of your episodes. I was born with toxic parents and now at 35 have finally made the choice to save myself and end tbe cycle of being in a 13yr toxic relationship. the last 7months of freedom haven't been easy but the saddness of it ending is much easier to handle then the pain of "being in it". I am proud of my progress and after listening to this episode am reassured that not only is true happiness possible but that I was not crazy, and that his behavior was disrespectful. and most importantly gained the strength to know that to finally let go of that rope is not selfish and I don't need to explain myself or give him one last good bye. THANK YOU

I can't handle the antivax stuff. Eat better be healthier that makes sense but it's not going to protect you from measels. She even says she doesn't know how they work. Stay in your lane lady.

Wade, Jesus Christ is my savior to and I believe that he was created for the purpose of fulfilling your needs, And has he fulfilled your needs, he fulfills my needs. I have been studying a course in miracles for the past 15 years and I have found that it gives me a deeper understanding of Christianity.

Jenn Shraga I can definitely say this is what I needed to hear today. It touched me so deeply in so many ways.came right at the time that I needed to hear it..... and the fact that it just started playing on my car radio this morning.. Thank you Christie and Melissa for being the vessel that makes these truths come alive and present themselves to us in a way we understand and process.

I grew up in a holistic family. I started having emotional problems around 14. I tried every herbal/spiritual treatment that was suggested to me. When I was 19 I ended up in a psyche ward. I have bipolar disorder. When I was 28, a new mother, and extremely suicidal when I saw a proper psychiatrist for the first time the medication he gave me saved my life. I take them daily as prescribed and I haven't had a serious break down, spiral, manic episode, or self harming behavior for 5 years. I couldn't even manage 5 months before. I have also done a ton of talk therapy. I started an online community of people experiencing mental illness. We support each others treatment choices. If someone wants to go all natural I will tell them all I know and encourage them. If someone needs pharmaceuticals that is also encouraged and supported. I've been loving this podcast then THIS happened. This is essentially saying if you need drugs to function and show up for yourself and your family you MUST be brainwashed. I do research all my prescriptions BEFORE I start taking them. I'm not brainwashed. I have an illness that if I lived earlier in time would have absolutely killed me by now. That's why it seems like there are more sick people now, because they used to be dead people. Dead people can't buy drugs so it doesn't serve the drug companies to "murder" people. Keep them sick at least makes sense; killing them does not. The guest keeps saying things that are patently untrue, like "adverse drug reactions are the leading cause of death IN THE WORLD" Most of the people in the world don't have access to Western medicine. The West is NOT the world.

I relate to this in every aspect. I met my husband in elementary school but we started dating when I was 17 and we dated all the way through college and got married and were together for 25 years when he passed away at the age of 43 very unexpectedly. I'm a year-and-a-half into the street journey and really trying to figure out who I am without him, all while grieving and trying to parent 3 kids who have lost their dad. thank you for letting me know that I'm not alone in this journey and that hopefully in 10 or 11 years I can have found new love discover who I am and kept the hope and found joy.

I really enjoyed this podcast. I purchased two of her books and am excited to learn more about how food can change my life. I'll also be sharing my copy of Cancer Free with Food with a few of my loved ones who are currently struggling with cancer. Thank you for opening my eyes to the importance of good foods!

Such a great podcast. How are you so insightful on this subject?? Lol. I totally get where you’re coming from tho, I’m also someone who wants everyone to like me and not be on their bad side and don’t want any friction and avoid tension.. so in essence I’m SUPER self conscious when in social situations and ruminate about a stupid thing I said or what I could have said in that moment. That definitely needs to stop. And it’s good to know that it’s pretty normal for just about everyone so it really isn’t as big a deal as we believe it to be in our heads ✌️❤️
