Key Points Made by JJ about Miracle Mindset:

  • The number one thing preventing people from achieving their goals is that they don’t feel worthy – in other words they don’t have the mindset they need to be successful.
  • We tend to look at the bad things in our life in a negative way. The bad things are the training that shaped us into who we are today and help us become better and deal with stress more effectively.
  • If you’re feeling fear, it’s because you’re taking on a worthy challenge. The struggle brings out the strength.
  • Everything in life worth having is worth fighting for and is necessary hard work.
  • The people who succeed are those who go through tough times and made it past them.
  • You can’t course correct standing still. You have to take action if you want to improve things.
  • It’s important to ask the ‘right’ questions if you want good answers.
  • Your limitations will become your life. You can approach life either believing you will fail or that you will succeed – the latter will give you much better results. You determine your limiting beliefs.
  • The ‘how’ will show up if you focus on the ‘why’.
  • Be present and celebrate the small victories, pay attention to the small details.
  • Commit to an action. Don’t ‘try’. Be courageous instead of fearless.
  • Having a support community is important. A rising tide lifts all boats.
  • Forgiveness is an active process. If you’re not happy despite good things happening in your life, you probably have some forgiving to do.
  • Mindset is a skill that can be developed.
  • Start with the areas of your life that you’re not satisfied with and begin building that area up.
  • You can create the life and impact that you want; you have to decide first to do it.
