Explore How We Can Work Together

Episode #35 Regain Composure with Mindset Management

August 18, 2020


When you’re facing your emotional flare gun when a problem arises, think about this. How long would you allow a pain point to go on, and how much damage could it cause in your life instead of just resolving it?

This episode is a follow-up from setting the stage for having a growth mindset in episode 34. We used James Anderson’s Mindset Continuum Tool for mindset management and identified some of our fixed mindset thoughts which causes discomfort. Now it’s time to start working our way to high-growth thoughts so that we can start feeling better. This is how we can get there.


In this episode, we talk about:

  • James Anderson’s Mindset Continuum Tool from last week’s episode
  • the five steps to get going with a growth mindset
    • Step 1: Recognizing You're Having A Pain Point
    • Step 2: Diagnosing That Pain Point
    • Step 3: Evaluating Your Pain Point
    • Step 4: Shop And Swap Your Different Thoughts
    • Step 5: Collecting Evidence
  • Brooke Castillo’s coaching model
