During this time period of change and adversity, we need to protect our mind. We need to stand guard to our mind and pay attention to the meaning we are assigning to our experience. We can choose to attach a negative or a positive meaning to our experiences. When we choose a positive meaning, we are focused on how this time is a gift, how we can learn and grown, adjust as humans, and invest in ourselves. This is the high performance mindset.

Power Phrase this Week: “I control what this means to me. I find a higher meaning.”

Cindra discusses how to deal with your emotions during this time of uncertainty and change. She describes that your mindset drives everything – how you live, the stress you feel, and how you lead. Remember all of your emotions are valuable. Emotions are not good or bad. By labeling your emotions, you can understand what led to that feeling with curiosity and openness. Your emotions are data not directives, as Dr. Susan David describes. You can show up and act despite how you are feeling.

This week’s Power Phrase:  I respond with purpose and intention. I use my emotions as data.”

This Friday April 17th I was set to do a Ted Talk that has been put on hold. I knew I needed to direct my energy to something new. I asked myself, “How can I help? How can I serve?" So I reached out to 20 top experts in mindset and mental performance and put them all in one place for you.  It’s call the High Performance Mindset Summit and it starts Friday! 

These top 20 experts include bestselling authors, top mental performance coaches for pro teams, and other influencers on the topic of mindset and how you can deal with adversity and change. When I got done interviewing these 20 experts, my mind was blown. I learned so much. And the best part – I feel more on purpose, clear on my values, and mentally stronger. The summit it designed for you to do the same.

The summit is FREE and you can access it at www.HighPerformanceMindsetSummit.com. You will learn strategies to lead yourself and others with grit, how to reduce fear and stay in the present, and other mindset tools to be your best more often.
In these week's podcast, I summarize a few key ideas from the interviews.

This Week’s Power Phrase: I am meant to adapt and persevere. I stay mentally strong.”

“Alone we are strong…together we are stronger.” Anonymous  

We are all in this together. Everyone in the world is impacted by COVID-19. The key is to remember to be compassionate with others. We are all doing the best we can. To be more patient, we can put space between the stimulus and how we respond. We can do this by using the Power Pause by taking a deep breath and then saying a Power Phrase such as “I can handle anything that comes my way” or “I stay mentally strong.”

Today’s Power Phrase:  I choose to respond with purpose and intention. I can handle anything that comes my way.”
