What Should You Do When You Learn a Friend Doesn’t Actually Care About You?

Imagine my dismay when I discovered the friend I’d been so kindly hosting at my home recently didn’t actually give a shit about me. Over time, during his stay, I realized: He almost never inquired about how I was feeling. When I DID share my emotions or feelings in a conversation, he’d not care enough […]

An entrepreneur looks back on his MindFix experience two years later

Two years ago, Tim Dick came to MindFix as a successful entrepreneur (take a look at his original case study). He had shepherded multiple companies from infancy to being valued at millions of dollars. He was the definition of a success. Yet, Tim struggled to find joy in his achievements. While everyone congratulated him on […]

MindFix in Action

Today is the day! If you’ve ever wished you could see MindFix’s work in action… Here you go. Spoiler: At the end of this session, the subject shared we made more progress in our 30 minutes together than she had in all her therapy over the past 1.5 years. An exciting venue… Ever heard of […]

Was it my place to say something?

Something heartbreaking happened while I was being interviewed on a (very) well-known podcast earlier this month. And I still feel regret that I didn’t do anything to address it after it happened.

You don’t FEEL like doing any of it. Most people who find themselves facing an overwhelming to-do list […]

Why We Sometimes React In Ways That Don’t Match the Situation

Recently I found myself bent over in my dining room, clutching my knees, repeating over and over again, “Am I going to die??” A current client had a husband who would scream at her if she’d make a tiny mistake, insisting she was trying to ruin their marriage. Millions of times a day, people across […]

Uncertainty is THIS (in raw form)

Had a fascinating client session a while back with a fellow who uncovered how his deep fear of uncertainty was keeping him frozen, unable to move forward in business. He truly believed uncertainty was bad and dangerous. During our MindFix session, he completely eliminated that fear — it’s 100% gone now, and no longer a […]

Language gives clues

There’s a massive difference between… (1) someone who says “She ruined my entire day…” and (2) someone who says “I have a hard time being around her…” Notice the first statement blames someone else for an internal experience. The second statement takes ownership. Someone who makes the first statement feels angry and experiences powerlessness — […]
