Recently I bought 2 plants…exactly the same plants. I put them in the same pots, added the same soil, chose the location with the same light, water them the same… but one is doing amazing, while another one is dying… WHY?
Often we only look at the problem, not at its roots. It is obvious for everyone that in order for me to salvage my plant I should not treat its leaves. Instead I need to treat its roots. However, we somehow lose common sense when it comes to our financial life.
We are sighing , “Why can’t I get clients?”, ” Why, no matter how much I work, I can barely make my ends meet?”, etc.
We are not looking at the root of the problem- our limited mindset, beliefs and our own energy. While in reality we set out own limitations to happiness and abundance that we are not even aware of
So how can we quickly assess our internal financial limitations?

In today’s episode I share my personal strategies of what I do when I feel like a failure (which happens, probably, several times a day!). Yes, all of us, even “the most successful” people feel like a failure on a regular basis. What are some coping mechanisms that can help in this situation? Watch the video to find out. Here is a quick summary for those who don’t have 2 min for the video
1. Close Facebook or all social media sites (comparison kills self-esteem)
2. Don’t let your mind created “reasons” for it. (instead come up with a “neutral” reason)
3. If possible, get outside. (not just to breathe… watch, why)
4. Sing (it tricks your brain more than dancing!)
5. If all fails, enjoy the misery (but use this one secret trick!)
Today we will talk about how your mind helps you or creates obstacles in your life.
I will use the work of a psychologist and researcher Carol Dweck to show you how your mind affects the way you lead your life.
To start I am going to give you a test… a super short one with 2 choices for the answer.
When do you feel smart?—when you are not making mistakes or when you figure something out?
Dr. Dweck’s research shows that there is a fixed mindset and growth mindset.
If you choose the first option you have characteristics of a FIXED mindset , if second – you have a growth mindset.
With fixed mindset you believe that your abilities are carved in stone, we are trained to have this mindset from childhood. So in every situation we feel like we need to prove ourselves, the world is divided into failure and success and we are often tormented with fear to be seen dumb, rejected, not enough… which of course affects our self-esteem and life we create. Our true talents here are fossilized and we live life almost paralyzed emotionally and energetically.
On the contrary, growth mindset is based on the belief that our qualities can be cultivated though our efforts. Stretching yourself, pushing yourself out of your comfort zone becomes . These are the people who are constantly in motion and are creating a better version of themselves. They embrace the challenge. The bigger the challenge the more they thrive.
Brain research shows that for fixed mind attention is only when they are told whether they are right or wrong, but not when they are given information on how they can learn. Growth mindset people are always paying attention to how they can improve, grow, learn, expand
