Website Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Instagram Click Here to Tweet to Erin & Nicole How to reset your mindset with Erin Pheil of Mind Fix As entrepreneurs going through our busy days, we often run into mindset . . .  stuff  to put it mildly. Moods, mental roadblocks, frustrations, self-doubt; little hiccups and things that just aren’t supposed to happen. And we get triggered. You probably know the feelings: frustration, anger, anxiety, sadness, fear. All things that can easily derail you if you don’t know how to handle these emotions on the spot. Because the fact remains, we run businesses and we have to keep going. No serious entrepreneur can just go, ‘You know what, I'm just going to call it a day again, I'm done. I just, I can't deal with this. I'm too angry.’ Or at least we can’t if we ever hope to get anywhere with our business. That’s why the tools Erin Pheil of Mind Fix teaches her clients are so powerful. They’re easy “tricks” to keep in your back pocket for when you get triggered or overrun with an emotion, and need to get back to calm . . . fast. So you can get on with your day and your work without being pulled off course. The two techniques Erin teaches below are effective, powerful ways to bring yourself back to a more balanced mental state in just 90 seconds or less. Yes, you read that right. Intrigued? Read on to learn these techniques for yourself and put them into practice today.   How to get unstuck with two simple techniques  Before we begin it’s important to note that Erin will be the first to tell you these techniques are quick fixes. She herself describes them as “bandaid” approaches. However, that’s what they’re meant to be. These tactics are a simple, yet elegant tool for you to add to your mindset “toolbox” that you can pull out anytime you need to get through negative thoughts and emotions quickly so you can move on and be productive. If you would like further help and support to get at the root causes of your thoughts and emotions, visit Erin’s website at What do you do if you have a mental block?  What do you do when you’re triggered and come up against a mental block? If you’re like most people you ruminate. You become obsessed with the issue in your mind and begin telling yourself a “story.” “This always happens to me!” “I can’t believe they did that . . .” “Nothing I do ever works. Like that time I . . .” What accompanies these negative thoughts are in turn negative emotions. As Erin explains, our emotions are simply chemical reactions. When we experience an emotion, there's a release of neuro chemicals that happens in our brain and they flood into our our system. But what's interesting is if we don't feed the story, the chemicals will stop and the emotion will literally die. Dry up, dissolve and go away. The only thing that keeps these neuro chemicals pumping out, that is, what is actually causing us to feel the emotion, is our continuing to tell the story. It's almost like a little fire in our minds that we keep feeding oxygen with our story. But if we can go for 90 seconds without repeating that story, then the chemicals will stop pumping, and the “fire” will burn out. We’ll literally not experience the emotions that are practically taking over our lives and stopping our day. Mindset reset technique number one  So how do we do this? Erin calls this first technique “The 90 Second and It’s Gone Tactic.” Here’s how it works: First, notice you’re telling a story and note what emotions you’re feeling. Put a name to them and acknowledge them. Next, bring your focus to something else nearby: a tree out the windo...
