BEYOND: The Podcast for Moms Called to Business

Nov 7, 2023

Are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? Frustrated that you’re always frustrated?
We’re tired of running too fast and hiding behind a busy schedule, we’re tired of living a life of constant problems and also pretending problems don’t exist.
What's often at the root of feeling this way is a problem-focused mindset.
Here’s the thing. Our brains are wired to look for problems – so this episode isn’t about trying to get rid of all of your problems, pretend you don’t have any problems or even to minimize them. Identifying and solving problems is an important and necessary part of our lives. It's a blessing that we were created with brains that seek to look out for us and keep us safe by being on alert for problems.
But there’s a difference between finding and solving problems and being completely consumed by them – and many of us fall into that category – anticipating the next thing that’s going to go wrong, constantly looking for problems on any given day or in any given situation. It can become something that consumes us. On this episode of BEYOND, I'm sharing how to know if you have a problem-focused mindset, what that might look like, how this type of mindset can steal your joy and halt your growth. I'm also describing the alternative that is available to you – how you can train your brain to stop being so problem-obsessed.
On this episode, you'll learn:
• How "negative" people in your life are often operating with a problem-focused mindset
• What being consumed by problems can look like in your parenting, work and relationships
• Questions our brain often asks on repeat when we are problem-focused
• Why a problem-focused mindset is exhausting for ourselves and those around us
• How control is at the root of a mind constantly looking for problems
• How a problem-focused mindset makes it really hard to grow: both as a human being and a business owner
• The intentional shift that can free you from feeling consumed by problems
