How To Change Others’ Minds (And Your Own)

Researchers at Stanford once grabbed a group of students and split them into 2 groups: 1 group in favor of capital punishment (it DETERS crime!) 1 group against capital punishment (it has NO EFFECT on crime!) Both groups had to respond to 2 written studies: One study provided data in support of capital punishment, and […]

ERIN’S BIG BREAKTHROUGH (AKA “WHY FEEL ANGER?”)

I Was Today-Years-Old When I Finally Understood Why the Hell I’d Ever Want to Feel Anger. I preach the importance of feeling the “full rainbow” of emotions. But for the longest time I’ve been a partial-hypocrite because I secretly treated anger differently than all other emotions. I saw it as completely useless and I rarely […]

Cringeworthy Advice About Imposter Syndrome

I got my weekly email from one of the better-known coaches in the world. I was completely shocked. In it he was talking about Imposter Syndrome (if you’re a business owner, consultant, expert, coach, or athlete, you know exactly what I’m talking about). He had shot a video to share 3 pieces of advice that […]

MEAN BRAIN annnnd…….Oh Yeah, That Book Everyone’s Been Suggesting I Write…

Recently I sat down in front of my fireplace and read through a journal I’d kept 12 years ago. Holy shit was I cruel to myself. My self-commentary was blistering. Scathing. Overflowing with contempt and disgust…all at myself. It was difficult to read. It was painful to re-experience my old me’s “mean brain” beating myself […]

If I don’t have it all planned out, I’m screwed

This seems to be an underlying—yet dominating—way of thinking held by many of the MindFix clients we’ve worked with. “But I don’t know HOW to grow my business to 7 figures…” “I’m not clear on where I’m going to be 5 years from now, so I’m totally lost; I don’t have my future figured out…” […]

Don’t just cope with problems – eliminate them

Most mindset programs make you feel GREAT… for a short period of time. This video explains why that is, and why the work we do here at MindFix is so different. In a nutshell: we offer root-cause removal instead of symptom management. You see, most mindset programs we’re aware of do their best to teach […]

Careful About What Your Mentors Present as Truth

I still remember opening up this newsletter from Perry Marshall a few years ago and having his parting words hit me like a ton of bricks. I love Perry Marshall. I love how he shares how he’s grown leaps and bounds since working on his headtrash. I remember not loving, though, how he sets people […]

A painful game 99.5%* of us play every day

WE WALK AROUND THINKING WE KNOW EXACTLY HOW EVERYTHING SHOULD UNFOLD FOR US. You are doing this. Every single day. Here are some quick real-life examples. Can you identify? My friend Holly was deeply upset she found out her husband cheated on her. (“This is the worst thing that could have happened to me!!”) My […]

How To Avoid The “Never-Satisfied-With-My-Progress” Trap We So Easily Fall Into

The “after” photo = me. (Two years ago.) Following 2 months of hard work. Think I felt great about my progress that day? Nope. Funny enough, I remember laying there that day, testing my hip flexors, thinking: “I am SO TIGHT.” “I’m STILL not flexible.” “This is hard.” I was comparing my experience in the […]
