In the Growth U Podcast, Jen opens up about her decision to invite God into her everyday life by going to school to become part of the ministry, as well as the motivations that led her to this point in her life.

You now know how both parts of your mind works, the conscious and unconscious. You've identified your programs or money blocks; guilt, criticism, resentment, and fear. You've researched the opposite programs. I'll give you some hints: happiness, approval, delight, and confidence. You've learned how to redirect your focus with the Four Laws of Focus and you've learned how to tap into the unconscious mind through relaxation and proclaiming what you desire with the emotion of gratitude.

The 7 Mindset Patterns Sabotaging Your Success

Use Awareness to Flow from Stress to Success (Part 2)

So what's your favorite way to sabotage any efforts to change? For me, procrastination has always been a favorite...Or perhaps playing the victim, like my injuries stop me from exercising and losing weight. I'm not alone in my self-sabotage, although so often it has felt like I am the only one in the whole world who lacks the self-control and motivation to stick with anything. The good news is that you can change your mindset around self-sabotage and failure. By doing so, you'll flow from stress to success.

A.C.E. Your Mindset and Go from Stress to Success

Beat the Self-Sabotage that Keeps You Stuck

A.C.E. stands for attitude-competence-effort. It is necessary to plow through self-deception every time you start anything new. Learning to walk. Learning to talk. Starting to drive. Beginning a new job or relationship. Joining the gym. Losing weight. Frankly, life would be really boring if everything came easily to you. Like playing a video game or watching a great movie, the challenge is what makes it appealing. Use your A.C.E. consciously to turn self-deception into resistance so that you're building mental muscle instead of just being derailed.

Do you ever feel like life is happening to you? You're not alone. Take control of your life now. O.P.A. stands for Outcome-Purpose-Action. It's about proactively setting your desired outcome before every encounter, be it a meeting, an interview, an email, or a major speaking engagement. Your outcome is your desired destination, which you enter into the GPS navigation of your unconscious mind. Then it's important to know WHY you're taking the journey so that then you can take inspired action toward your goals.

Success or failure in weight loss is 80% mindset and only 20% lifestyle. In Part One, we smashed the myth that fat loss failure is due to laziness or lack of willpower. Instead, the most important ingredient to winning at weight loss is actually your mindset.

Hayat Hakim seems to have lived multiple lives in her short time on this earth. Today, she joins us on our first show to discuss her personal experience diversity and embracing change. Hayat knows a few things about uncertainty and change.

How many times have you tried --and failed-- to lose weight? If you're like most people, you've tried over and over and over. The web is full of nutrition and exercise plans with promises of astounding fat loss and fit bodies. And yet research shows that most people fail to shed their bulk or drop it just to regain it back (and more) over time. We are losing the battle against fat, personally and as a culture. Our population has never been heavier than now with about 40% of adults overweight. Even the "Biggest Loser" participants have ended up regaining most of the weight they worked so hard to lose. Why do we sabotage our efforts each and every time?
