Motivation is awesome.

But it only provides a short-term boost of dopamine and can wear off quickly.

To overcome your inner critic and thus increase confidence and resilience, you need to learn how to use your greatest superpower to cultivate a more empowering mindset.

That superpower that we all have is called neuroplasticity - the brain's ability to form new connections and to change the wiring of its current circuitry. This superpower allows us to train ourselves to replace negative habits and thought patterns with much more empowering and positive ones.

How do you get started with retraining your mind?

By paying attention to your inner self-talk and consciously redirecting your attention to your strengths -
through practices such as self-gratitude.

By being mindful of the content you consume:
choosing inspirational and educational content over fear-based or useless information.
