Navigating Change: How To Thrive in the Unknown
Welcome to today’s episode of The Mindset Mentor Podcast, where today… I’m going to share with you what I believe is the best possible thing you could do for your future, starting today.
If there’s anything that we can all agree on about AI, it’s that we knew it was coming eventually. If you really think about it, there once was a time where people rode horses to get everywhere… Then they developed cars… and planes… etc. VCRs turned into DVD players, which turned into internet streaming… Change is inevitable. The one thing that never changes, is that things will change. In this episode I’m not here to talk about AI, but I am here to use it as a reference point to help you understand why it’s more crucial than ever before to start focusing on yourself, developing yourself both personally and professionally, and start getting comfortable with change. It’s time to learn to adapt. I’m not here to put fear into you, and I will give you some great ideas in this episode on what you can start doing right away to make sure that you’re not “left behind” as the world keeps moving forward.
We’re all on this journey together.
8 Techniques to Relieve Daily Stress
Things are crazy in the world right now, huh? Seems like they get crazier and crazier, but here’s the deal… We can’t change the way things around us are.
Welcome to today’s episode of The Mindset Mentor Podcast, where I’m going to give you 8 techniques to relieve daily stress that you may be feeling. You don’t have to use all 8 every day, but you can pick and choose each one to try on for size!
The level of your stress and anxiety right now, will be a direct reflection of how much you are resisting the way that the world is. The people around us are the way that they are, and we can’t control that. Don’t resist. Let’s practice these great techniques to remove stress:
Practice your breathing. 6 deep breaths, in through the nose… out thru your mouth. A long exhale will slow your heart rate down.
Focus on gratitude. What you focus on grows. We need to change our perspectives. Thinking about everything you don’t have, and all the people that you wish were different… think about this… Those thoughts alone can be extremely stressful. When you desire something, you create a space between who you are now and who you think you’d be if you had that “thing”... and that takes you out of your current state, telling your brain that you aren’t going to be happy until you have that thing.
Go for a walk! Forward physical motion seen through the eyes, will actually lower your cortisol levels. Cortisol is a stress hormones, so if possible I highly recommend that you go for a walk in nature. Science says that these walks in nature will lower your cortisol AND your stress levels.
Time to write!! I’m not gonna call this journaling… (I don’t want to stress you out any more…) Scientific studies have shown that the act of writing things down, can help to get rid of some of the mess that’s in your head… OUT. This will help relieve you and give you more peace of mind.
Get your blood levels checked- I know this one sounds weird but it’s just science my friends. I personally was feeling off a while back, got my blood checked, found out I was Vitamin B & D deficient. So, I made sure to get those vitamins in my system, and BOOM. Almost instantly my mood and stress levels corrected.
Try to stop drinking so much caffeine… especially if your stress levels are out of whack. Side note: Sometimes caffeine is a bit of a crutch to help you get the energy you need throughout the day, that you wouldn’t actually be needing if you did #5 on this list, which is getting your blood checked to make sure your body is running optimally.
Force yourself to watch 10 minutes of comedy. Laughter will release dopamine, and dopamine release will decrease your cortisol levels. When cortisol levels decrease, you are going to feel more relaxed, and less anxious. Laughter stimulates the release of your body’s natural feel good chemicals as well which temporarily relieves pain the body, and helps your muscles relax.
Be cautious of the music you’re listening to. There is a time and place for everyone to get to listen to Slipknot. But when you’re desperately trying to relieve your stress levels, then you need to be a little more picky and careful with what you listen to. My personal stress reducing song: Weightless, by Marconi Union (Please go look it up, it’s life changing.)
As I mentioned before, no one is suggesting that you try and do all of these 8 things everyday, but what I am suggesting is you try them each out to see which help you the most. (even the ones that you may feel like wouldn’t normally be for you…)
Creating Your Future: Stop Dwelling on the Past
If you really want to change the quality of peace you’re feeling in your present moment, immediately… This is the episode for you today!
Welcome to The Mindset Mentor Podcast, where today I’m going to help you understand why (and how) you can stop living in the past mentally, and teach you the why (and how) you can start “living” in the future, so that you can immediately start creating better outcomes for yourself right away.
There’s a really good Alan Watts quote that comes to mind:
“If you’re on a boat, and you look behind you, what do you see? You’ll see the wake behind you. The wake is just what shows you where you’ve been… BUT the wake of the boat does not steer the boat at all. It simply shows you where you’ve been.”
A lot of people live in the past, and they do it so that they can try and make a prediction of what the future will look like. If this sounds interesting to you, then I’m going to assume that you are probably one of the people who have found themselves doing exactly this. Why are you thinking that way? Here’s what I believe…
If you’re living in your past, so that you can predict your future… then you’re probably somebody who simply doesn’t want their future to end up looking like their past.
But if you don’t make a change, and make one immediately… then your tomorrows are going to surely look like your yesterdays and even your todays. It’s time to break the cycle!
The Power Of Positive Affirmations
Affirmations are simple, but the effects are profound.
Welcome to today’s episode The Mindset Mentor Podcast where today we’re going to talk about how to create affirmations. And I know…
If you’re like me and you have an analytical mind, then the act of positive affirmations can sound so corny but the reality is… There is science-based evidence that can explain how these actually work. And that’s what I’m going to explain to you today!
Before I teach you the HOW, I think you need to understand the WHY first.
Your brain is a sponge and soaks up beliefs, and over your lifetime, those beliefs fill your mind and become a major part of your identity. What’s cool about this?... You can actually change those identifying beliefs if you’re willing to incorporate new affirmations into your life.
There have been actual brain imaging studies that prove that when an individual visualizes themselves achieving a particular goal, along with positively affirming that to be the reality… Your brain lights up as you’re thinking, and saying those things as if you are actually experiencing that thing. The more you do this, the better.
The way you actually can create change in your life, is to bring what you want to your mind more and more until you start to actually believe it.
People who actually self affirm calmness and peace in themselves, their brains will actually produce lower cortisol levels.
So what does all this mean? This PROVES that you can help control your emotions, and stress levels.
How To Grow Your Self Awareness: The Key To Understanding Yourself
Knowing yourself is based in the past, learning yourself is based on the present. We’re trying to go from the present, into the future and part of that is doing the work to discover who you are, and how you can improve.
Welcome to today’s episode of The Mindset Mentor Podcast where today we are diving deep into the transformative power of self-awareness and how it can actually be the ultimate superpower.
In a world filled with distractions, I believe that the most valuable gift we can give ourselves is the power of self-awareness. There’s a clear distinction between self-awareness and self-consciousness, which I’m going to explain in this episode.
Self awareness is such a superpower because it is like having a clear internal mirror that allows you to manage your emotions effectively.
Self-awareness is crucial to your personal development because it enables you to understand your emotions before they arise, giving you the tools to manage them. Today I’m going to give you practical steps to help you develop your self-awareness:
Do More Reflective Practices: You can start with journaling as a way to explore both your conscious and unconscious thoughts. Our minds are complex, and journaling is an excellent tool to unravel them.
Practice Meditation: I know meditating is difficult for so many people, but instead of looking at meditation as a state you’re trying to get to of “no thoughts”, instead realize that meditation is actually about sitting still in one place so that you can properly observe your thoughts, process them, and work through why they exist and what should be done about them.
You will learn more about yourself by observing your thoughts without resistance. Meditation helps you confront your mind and understand what's really going on beneath the surface.
Become Thought Aware: Pay close attention to your thoughts. Emotions are often preceded by thoughts, and by acknowledging these thoughts when triggered, you can take steps to change your patterns moving forward.
The Psychology of Decision Making: Strategies for Better Choices
Today, we're diving deep into the fascinating world of decision-making because, let's face it, we make choices left and right every single day. Some are as big as deciding to tie the knot or have kiddos, while others are as small as picking out the right T-shirt color!
So, what's the secret sauce to making the best choices for your life? Well, I've got some fantastic tips to share with you:
1️⃣ First things first, let's talk about finding your "North Star." It's like setting your life's GPS to what truly matters to you. What do you want your life to look like, and what's your ultimate purpose? Let's align your decisions with that guiding star!
2️⃣ You've got skills and talents, right? So do I! But it's essential to choose paths that align with your North Star, not just the ones that bring in the big bucks. Trust me; fulfillment is the name of the game.
3️⃣ Speaking of fulfillment, ever noticed how some choices just feel right deep down in your gut? Well, there's actual science behind it! Your gut feeling, or intuition, is a powerful decision-making tool linked to your enteric nervous system. It's your second brain, and it's worth paying attention to!
4️⃣ To make even better choices, try the "10-10-10 rule." Ask yourself how you'll feel about a decision in 10 minutes, 10 months, and 10 years. It's like peering into the future to see if your choice stands the test of time!
5️⃣ Lastly, remember to pause and reflect. Give your brain some time to shift from emotional reactions to logical reasoning. This simple step can save you from impulsive decisions you might regret later.
I get it; we're often drawn to logical thinking, but sometimes our feelings and intuition are our secret superpowers. When you blend gut instincts with critical thinking, magic happens! 🌟

Life Changing Podcast
I had started listening to this podcast almost 4 years ago. It is one of the main reasons I started getting into healing and personal development. I can go around listening to other best rated podcasts but I will always end up feeling I missed listening to this podcast if I stayed even 2 days without it. I am never a person who writes reviews or provides feedback on online platforms but I felt obliged to write a review for this podcast. Rob Dial you are amazing and you are honestly my inspiration in life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for choosing to do this and help others. I pray God rewards you for your intentions. God bless you
