Listen to the Mel Robbins Podcast twice per week, every Monday and Thursday, to achieve the life of your dreams.
In this episode, you’ll learn how to use simple neuroscience to train your mind to start working for you.
The research, tools, and strategies you’ll learn in this episode are from an experience I created and taught to more than 250,000 students called “Mindset Reset.”
The fact is, your mindset is critical to your happiness, success, relationships, and fulfillment.
Listen to today’s episode and you’ll learn how to train your mind using this easy, science-backed method.
By the end of this episode, you’ll know how to use an amazing filter in your brain to reset your mindset.
This episode is also packed with takeaways and insights you can apply to your life and one surprisingly fun “brain game” you can play every day (even with your kids) to actively program a more powerful mindset.
I can’t wait to share this with you and for you to apply it to your life and share it with the people who matter to you most.
