Donna Doyon - Finding My Way - Positive Affirmations

Ep114: What’s the Focus of Your Daily Affirmations?

Every day, throughout the day, you make statements to and about yourself.

Are these statements serving your growth and well being or are they keeping you in a state of negative reality?

Learn how changing your words, can change your outcome.

Now if your first thought is, “Daily affirmations are stupid. I don’t believe they can change anything about my life.”

I invite you to consider “what if…”

Remember the mindset work we’ve been doing?

A fixed mindset says “Nothing can or will change.” And if you are satisfied with your life as it is, you’re right, you don’t need to change anything.

But…

If you are not satisfied… a growth mindset invites you to become curious. To play. To experiment.

So ask yourself, “What if writing out positive daily affirmations actually works? What if by changing what I am thinking, I can change how I am feeling? What if by changing how I am feeling, I can change what I am doing? What if by changing what I am doing, I can change the direction of my life?”

That WHAT IF question is powerful!

Are you willing to give it a try? Even if you feel silly, out of your element, or even stupid for doing it?

A growth mindset says, “Sure. I’ll give it a try. You can’t win the lottery if you never buy a ticket.”

Donna Doyon - Reframe Your Mindset

Ep110: Reframing Your Mindset

Part 3 of a 3-part series on Mindset.

Part 3 offers a few ways to “reframe” your fixed mindset to one of growth. Reframing simply means looking at a situation from a different perspective.

It’s like looking at a painting or photograph hanging on someone’s wall. You saw it, but it didn’t grab your attention. The next time you visited you were drawn to this same image. You asked your friend what was different about it.

“Oh, I didn’t like the frame it was in,” she replied. “So I bought a new one. It makes all the difference, doesn’t it?”

You can do the same thing when looking at your circumstances, relationships, and opportunities. If you don’t like what you are seeing, you can change the frame.

I’d love to know your thoughts. Leave a comment below or join my Facebook group, Start Today and Continue Tomorrow.

Release - My One Word for 2019

Ep107: Choosing One Word as a Lens to Your World

What’s your “One Word”?

Have people in your world been talking about “One Word”?

They sure have been in mine.

They’ve been talking about it for weeks.

I didn’t know it was a “thing” until last year when a new friend told me about it.

I had created themed years before, but hadn’t refined the practice to a single word.

The practice is the same: Use your word/theme as a lens or filter for everything that happens in your life. You look for experiences where the word/theme develops and challenges you to become a better version of yourself.

You think you are headed in one direction and the Universe will take you in directions you never imagined!

It’s really pretty cool. 🙂

And that’s what this week’s episode is all about. Let me know what you think and if you will pick “One Word” for 2019.

Ep106: Experience the Power of Non-Negotiables in Your Life and Business

Making and taking time for the activities and relationships that are most important to you is key to your health and happiness. Too often we let less important activities consume our time or we spend too much time making things perfect when “good enough” will do.

Continuing somewhat with the theme of “healthy boundaries,” this week I share thoughts on identifying activities as “non-negotiable,” to ensure that they get the proper attention that they deserve.
