Great talk Mel. As is often said the winning or losing begins in the mind. And as Shakespeare said “Nothing is either bad or good except thinking makes it so”.
Great talk Mel

I’ve never heard of Mel Robbins…I’ll chalk it up to living abroad for the previous 6 1/2 years, but her audio clip on ‘the recession mindset’ really hit home. I’m the Queen of optimism in my business and social circles, but this week, I’ve been gripped by fear like never before. This audio really gave me the shake-up I needed. As always, I am in control – to have spent so much time thinking otherwise was obviously a temporary loss of sanity.

First: I read the Mel Robbins article in the November Success about her being from Western Michigan – North Muskegon no less….I live in Fruitport Michigan so that was very cool – I laughed about tying the sweater around your waist – I do that all the time!! hahahaha
SECOND: YOU ARE SO RIGHT about the mindset and how quickly watching the news and talking with negative, pessimistic people can rob even the most positive person of their positivity!!! I am in sales and felt myself being dragged down by all the negativity in the news so I just simply stopped watching it! What a difference! I started my business in the worst possible time – April 2008 – BUT I am happy to report BECAUSE I kept my mindset in a positive (no negativity allowed) and refused to listen to the nay sayers, I am on the path of getting to my yearly income goal that I set – FULL STEAM AHEAD!!!
I am proud of my fellow West Michigan girl and wanted to say “thanks for the uplifting audio” and for confirming what I always knew was the key to true success and happiness!!

Thank You!! Mel,Great presence and energy, the clarity of your mindset is such that I can feel it when you speak!
I didn’t even realize I need to be re focused until I heard you speak. I reminds me that it’s not what goes on outh there that matters nearly as much as what goes on inside me.
Why at 63, I can not get excited about accelerating my retirement goals. I have little, and still have a wait and see mentality. I am ashame but unresponsive. Is there really a help for an “over-optimist” like me? Like I am going spend my retirement years on some small island and play Jungle Jim for the rest of my life.

That was awesome! You are so right. I make a conscious effort to be positive and find myself around people that get caught up and every negative thing going on. I have to focus on being positive because I know I create the world around me. I love hearing the positive and getting an uplift. Thank you.

Great audio. Control is everything. We find this is a major motivation key for people joining our network marketed business. At our company we work to inspire our teams to be enthusiastic, positive, confident and the high antioxidant product we promote helps a lot.
This industry (and probably any worthwhile endeavor) can either be the hardest challenge or the easiest, most enjoyable process depending on your mindset and beliefs. I am convinced that our industry is superior to conventional product distribution and I know that our product helps people significantly. I could focus on the negative nellies, naysayers and wood ducks but when confronted by one of these poor souls, I ask myself if they are achievers. Have they developed great visions and set worthy goals or are they just the product of brain farts (I’ll borrow your term if I may – I like it).
Funny thing though. You say our brains are still adapted to our pre-urban ancestors. I agree but so is our nutrition and the rest of our physiology. Kakadu Complex is designed around ancient foods of the world’s longest living culture (the Australian Aborigines) and has astounding benefits for our health. Their exercise patterns of short duration, high intensity which resulted in their ability to run faster than Jamaican runner, Usain Bolt did in setting his 100m Olympic sprint, also suit us today. Perhaps we have simply to unlock the secret of our ancient brains to also discover how traditional cultures could remember so many stories of creation, the intricate associations with their country, their hundreds of foods and medicines and those of animals they hunted, the pharmacopoeia they used, their histories which allowed 60,000 years of survival in sometimes inhospitable lands and also to speak fluently, in 5 or more languages and more. Their mental capabilities in their time, eclipse ours today.
My last comment is the investing in building confidence in yourself, reminding yourself of your abilities to survive and succeed is the key to dispelling a negative mindset. Just do it – because you can.
