Mindset is hands-down the biggest story blocker for the women I work with – and I’ve worked with hundreds.
It takes focus and commitment to create a brand – and that’s why Episode 3 of the Power Your Platform Podcast explores the three transformational mindset practices that will help you flourish once you step onto your own story path.
Let’s take a look at each of these daily habits one at a time:
1. Trust Your Gut
The best way to tune in and listen to what your gut is saying to you is first to find a time to be still and quiet during each day. I know I know -- the moms with toddlers are bent over with uncontrollable laughter right now. And I hear you, sister. I promise you – I’ve been there.
But building in quiet time for ourselves – even if it’s just 5 minutes in the shower – is absolutely key to hearing where our inner GSP is directing us, and ultimately following its lead.
2. Spot the Clues Along the Way
Studies have shown that women tend to absorb more information through their senses and tuck it away in their brain for future use more than men tend to do.
I like to think of this as our inner Nancy Drew. We’re always noticing and picking up on the clues in the room that others tend to overlook.
These clues are the key to understanding our audience, reading a room, knowing which language to use and which to avoid, and knowing when to hold space for larger emotions that may be at play.
3. Practice Forward Momentum
Yes, there are times when we need to rest. But that doesn’t mean we need to quit.
Setting daily micro-goals helps ensure we keep moving forward, even when we don’t feel like we’re making any real progress.
