Our mindsets determine the way we see the world, as well as, the way we behave and who we are as people.
It’s very easy and normal to stay stuck in fixed mindsets - limiting beliefs about our abilities and skills that prevents us to learn new things.
We can intentionally cultivate a growth mindset that allows to stretch our mind and amplify the realm of possibilities of what we do, and who we are.
Amplifying our mindsets is one of the secrets of success, from most entrepreneurs, freelancers and self-employed professionals and professionals out there.

Today, Janice joins me to talk about optimism versus hope. She talks about what authentic optimism really means, noting that it needs to be founded in a deep well of hope. She notes that hope can coexist with trauma and sadness, and she shares her BRIGHT acronym. She explores what makes a good support system, observes the importance of stubbornness, and points out that your legacy will be the impact you leave on people. We discuss the difference between “critical” and “urgent”, and she notes the importance of figuring out how you personally define “important”.

“Authentic optimism is a deep-seated mindset and a daily practice that, over time, means that I face things looking for something good to come from it, even when it’s a setback or a trauma. And I think all of those things come from that deep well of hope.”
