THE GURU With Howard Falco

Jul 14, 2020

Welcome back to THE GURU! Today’s podcast is all about conquering a negative mindset.

Many of us operate from a predominately negative mindset and we may not even know it! This negative energy is extremely destructive and corrosive to the mind, body, and soul. And more often than not, it will creep into what we’re trying to create before we even can notice it and will beat us down to the point where we give up or lose hope.

Turning your negative mindset into a positive one is one of the best things you can do for yourself in order to access your creative power to its greatest capacity. Having a negative mindset is preventing you from living a fulfilling and powerfully creative life.

In this episode, Howard talks about how negative energy comes into your life; how it gets generated in your mind; tips on how to shift this mindset; and how to start welcoming positive energy into your mind and attitude to form what will ultimately become your actions, your thinking, your responses, and your results!

By the end of this podcast, you will know — without a shadow of a doubt — that your mindset, and the quality of the energy with which you look at yourself and the world, is going to be a huge part of your creative power and how you pace time. You will learn how to conquer a negative mindset, recode negative self-limiting beliefs, and understand the key to adopting a positive, healthy mindset.
