My book, LIES That Limit, makes it clear that mindset – what we believe, how we think – is everything. Mindset is the composite of our beliefs and assumptions – our theory about life, other people, even ourselves.

We feel safe when we make choices consistent with our story about the way things are. Yet, following the dictates of conditioned thinking is limiting. It cuts us off from even considering options that might serve us better, let alone taking action and moving in a different direction. Mindset can keep us stuck, mired in inertia.

To create more freedom and expand mindset, I coach my clients to try small experiments. Experiments allow them to explore options. They become self-researchers, testing new ideas, gathering data, assessing the effectiveness of the new approach, learning and developing new theories about what’s possible.

What experiments might you try? Small adjustments can make a BIG difference.
