#20: Your Attitude Creates Your Mindset, Chris Gordon

Dec 5, 2019 | Mindset, Podcast

What you feed your mind is what you’ll believe. And approaching new things with curiosity allows for an open mindset that could change the trajectory of an idea that may not initially be working, as Chris Gordon, owner of a local CrossFit gym undergoing the re-branding process, discovered for himself with his own business model.

In this week’s episode Chris and I discuss how attitude truly is everything when it comes to mindset whether in the gym or yoga studio. We talk about intrinsic motivation and discipline, how they’re related and how they contribute to creating the mindset you cultivate. 

Plus, find out the 2 biggest messages Chris teaches his students in regards to behavior change and mindset.

What do you think? 

For me, I use my Adamantine(R) Yoga practice, breath work and possibly a “time out” to help me change my attitude.  When YOU’RE facing the day or a situation with a bad attitude, what do you do to change your attitude to align your highest good?  I want to hear from YOU!

  • Creating a lifestyle change takes time and present moment awareness
  • The impossibility of measuring mindset
  • Attitude towards your actions determines how far you’ll get in life, and being able to re-frame rather than react can set you up for success
  • Internal motivation vs. discipline and how they work together
