Exercising your mindset muscle

The ReNew Mindset is at the forefront of everything we do. Our internal dialogue plays a central role in our mindset and our success in life.

The ReNew Mindset is all about how we think and approach things in our lives.

It's at the forefront of everything we do, and it's important to understand that our internal dialogue plays a huge role in shaping our mindset and ultimately, our success.

Have you ever noticed that little voice inside your head that talks to you throughout the day? That voice is what we call "internal chatter." It can be positive or negative, and it can influence how we feel and what we do.

Recently, I came across a great podcast called "Why the Voice Inside Your Head Can Sound Like a Jerk" hosted by Derek Thompson from The Atlantic with Ethan Kross. Kross is a professor at the University of Michigan and author of a new book called "Chatter: The Voice in Our Head, Why It Matters, and How to Harness It."

You can listen to it here: 

The podcast is about 60 minutes long, and it's definitely worth a listen.

They talk about the upsides and downsides of our internal chatter and how to influence it to work for us rather than against us. They also discuss how to deal with negative people, which can be a big challenge in our daily lives.

If you don't have time to listen to the podcast right now, be sure to bookmark it for later. It's an easy listen, and I think you'll find it really insightful.

The key to developing a positive and productive mindset is to exercise your "mindset muscle." Just like any other muscle in your body, it takes regular work and effort to strengthen it. So make it a priority to focus on your internal dialogue and work on developing a positive and productive mindset.

It'll make a huge difference in your life!
