The key to having a strong Mindset is like everything else. It is something you need to continuously develop and work on. I believe that one of the most POWERFUL methods of working on your mindset is through education. I am not referring to formal education, thought it can help. I am referring to self education. The education you receive from; reading the right books, listening to the right podcasts and networking with the right people.
The right Mindset is about waking up every day with the intention of living a life on purpose.
