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.

This advanced training, interwoven with her background as a Registered Nurse and her Master of Science degree in Health Administration, is foundational to the compassion and purpose she brings to her Mindfulness teaching and practice.

Today, Harriet joins me to share her story and talk about what she does. She explains why mindfulness is for you--even if you don’t think so. We talk about the concept of monkey mind, and she urges you to take control of your mind. She emphasizes the importance of avoiding multitasking, and she discusses why your relationship with the past is probably determining too many of your actions and perspectives. She explains what beginner’s mind is, and she distinguishes between planning and worrying. Finally, she notes the hallmarks of mindfulness.

“Mindfulness is not about stopping anything. There’s no stopping. It’s just noticing our thoughts--with compassion, with non-judgment.”

- Harriet Stein

“If you are alive, there is more right with you than wrong with you.”

- Harriet Stein
