3 Steps For Better Communication
Welcome to today's episode of The Mindset Mentor Podcast where today I'm going to be sharing 3 steps that anyone can follow to quickly and easily start having better communication with everyone in your life.
Communication is one of the most important skills that you as a human being can have, for deepening your connection with other people.
I believe that open, honest, and sincere communication IS the #1 key to maintaining any relationship in your life. The problem is... We aren't really taught growing up the HOW to communicate.
So then we spend so much time, and heartache in our adult lives suffering through the discovery process of how to communicate better with those around us.
That's why today I'm giving you the 3 steps to becoming a better communicator coming from a place of LUV. (Yes, I spelt that right. Let me show you what I mean...)
1. L- Listen. Listen with no intention of responding with your opinion, or your input in any sort of way. Empathetic presence is the act of being fully present with another person in more than just a physical way. This means setting aside your own thoughts, judgements, etc... and being entirely "with" the person you're talking to. This creates a place of safe space for other people so that they feel like they can communicate with you, and give you a chance to listen at all.
2. U- Understand. In the same way that you can convey that you're listening through non verbal cues, you can also do the same thing when it comes to understanding. Reflect and Repeat. You can use verbal cues like, "Okay... If I understand you correctly, you're saying...is that right?" BOOM. This is just one example of how to communicate that you're trying to understand.
3. V- Validate. More than anything else right now, everyone we are communicating with would like to feel VALID when they're communicating with us. Perception is reality for everyone right now. Meaning that we are all looking at the world through the lens of our own unique abilities to perceive it. Here's what's KEY here: Validating someone doesn't have to mean you agree with them, but it does mean acknowledging that someone's opinion is valid. You don't have to argue, you don't have to fix, etc... Sometimes all a person needs is validation.
Here's a BONUS question that can help you out in your relationships. Ask this question when someone's expressing something to you... "Do you want my help with this, or do you just want a hug?"
Every single person on this planet is doing the best with what they have. We all just want to be understood. And the way for you to improve your relationships with everyone you interact with... seek to understand. It's a two way street my friends.

Mastering Self Love: The Secret You Need To Know
Today we’re going to talk about how you can start mastering TRUE self love and I’m going to give you a few secrets that I think you really need to know if you’ve been struggling with this.
Now, when we talk about self-love, it's so much more than just gazing in the mirror and reciting affirmations (although, don't get me wrong, that's important too)...
I’m not telling you the same ole things you’re probably used to hearing about self love… After all, if those things were really the solution, then you wouldn’t still be struggling would you?
That’s why today we’re going to dive deep into what it is, but also what it most definitely is NOT.
First things first—let's bust some myths. Self-love isn't about taking the easy way out, my friends. It's not found at the bottom of a wine glass or in the comfort of skipping the gym. Sometimes, sure, those things are fine. But here's the kicker: Real self-love often means pushing yourself to do the things that are genuinely good for you, even when you'd rather not.
Yes, it's tough. I won't sugarcoat it. But I really truly believe that pushing yourself, and choosing discipline over convenience, is one of the most profound ways to love yourself deeply.
In this episode, we'll unpack the essence of self-love: What it truly is and the practices that can transform your relationship with yourself. It's a journey to a place where you become your own biggest ally and advocate.
So, are you ready to discover the secret to mastering self-love?
Why You're Lazy and How To Stop Procrastinating
Welcome to today’s episode of The Mindset Mentor Podcast, where today I’m going to be talking to you about why you may be feeling “lazy” lately… and don’t worry! This is not an episode where I’m talking about fitness, nutrition, etc… I’m not here to beat you up like that.
I’m going to explain to you why you may not have the ENERGY to do the things you want to do or need to do, and offer you some tips and strategies that you can follow to get out of a rut.
Honestly, just to keep things simple… What I believe causes most people to feel a lack of energy, enthusiasm, or desire… is when you are living a life that is out of alignment with who you are, and who you want to be.
When you’re out of alignment with your purpose, that also means you’re out of alignment with the universe. (Scary thought, huh?)
I believe that the universe, or whatever god you believe in… comes thru us and communicates with us thru the way of energy.
Every single thing in the universe is made of energy. If you are feeling exhausted everyday, and completely drained of your energy… here me loud and clear: You are not doing what you are meant to do.
However… there is a difference between a good and a bad type of exhaustion.
A good exhaustion is when you’re doing something you love, that took your energy all day and you are tired… but your heart is full. You feel extremely fulfilled inside.
A bad exhaustion is when you come home tired, drained, and you’re already dreading your tomorrow because you know that you’ve gotta repeat that same purposeless pattern.
In this episode, I’ll help you understand how to recognize the difference in these two when it comes to your life, and I’ll teach you what you can do about it to make sure that you get yourself back in alignment with the life you are meant to be living if you want to be truly fulfilled.
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…)
Love this podcast 🌞
Thanks for your amazing podcast!!!
The idea is great but
It feels like he thinks I’m stupid when he repeats the same exact sentence three times. It’s not that profound, I get it.
I just get annoyed listening to it
Just a king
