Episode Highlights:

1:40 What is a mindset exercise that you would say is a must for every single day especially when you are battling negative thoughts while you are trying to be encouraging to others.

It kinda feels hypocritical but, what do you do?

First, Let’s release the guilt that you need to have it perfect in order to help others. Second, there is no “arrival” when it comes to mindset — it is never-ending, but always improving. Third, be your own detective and collect your own data.

Here is a way that you can collect the data and make a plan that’s simple for thinking more encouraging thoughts …

12:35 Where do you start when you feel stuck and unmotivated to even get started on anything? You feel derailed and don’t want to get back into the swing of things.

➡️ What excites you about your goal?
➡️ What lights you on fire?

Because feeling overwhelmed could be what’s stopping your motivation. Maybe you are struggling with perfectionism. Can you do it for 15 mins? Do you know where to start? Are you starting with a small step first? Do you need rest?

Pick one thing to start that is super easy and incentives it with a reward, accountability, and support … the habit stack … here’s how …

17:47 How do you break a huge goal down? In this question that is answered, Kim is thinking about starting a blog … YAY! But this is a huge task! YIKES! How would she get started?
