Happy Thursday! This weeks' issue is about feeding your mindset so I hope you'll find something to lift your mood or provide a nugget of inspiration to help you on your way. We all know that small changes or shifts can make all the difference in your results, hopefully these ideas can get you moving!
If you haven’t heard of mini-habits, you’re in for a treat. Imagine making only small adjustments in your life, and still managing to create impactful and meaningful change. Check out the intro to this topic in the Nuggets section now!
There's also another challenge for your this week: It's about giving yourself a gift. You deserve it! Scroll down for more.
Get started with your own "Mini Habits"
The mini-habit is just what it sounds like – it’s taking the premise that doing a whole lot of small things will eventually add up to something amazing. Think, for example, of what would happen if you only read a couple of news articles every day? Before you know it, you’d have accomplished the goal of becoming more informed, and would be better able to handle discussions about current events.
Mini-habits don’t stop there though. Not only can your mini-habit change how you get things done, but they impact your mind and body as well. Read on for two examples you can use to discover the powerful benefits of Mini-habits.
1. You create an atmosphere of success. By setting small goals, you’re much more likely to meet them. So instead of telling yourself that you’re going to return all your phone calls promptly, you instead focus on returning the next phone call on time. That takes off the huge expectations that always felt so daunting in the past and left you with a feeling of failure when you couldn’t quite make it. What’s even better is that meeting these small goals means you get to where you start expecting success, which leads to the mindset that will generate that success you’re expecting.
2. You change how you view your capabilities. By accomplishing mini-goals, you start to realize that you do have the ability and power to accomplish things. Your confidence grows, and you gain a better, more positive sense of your abilities.

Take the challenge
This weeks' challenge is a simple one (or so it seems)...Put your phone away!
Give yourself the gift of uninterrupted time. It does wonders for momentum. By turning off your phone for an hour, you'll give yourself the freedom to relax, recharge, explore and forge ahead. Give this a try for 30 days and see the difference it can make.
