What Comes First – Energy or Mindset?

Energy before mindset

They aren’t the same thing.

Mindset is just that – working to change your thoughts, which is turns out is pretty difficult. Your mind is powerful. And yes, you can use your mind to think different thoughts and change your outcome. But at its core, your mind is wired to keep you safe, which it equates to same. So any attempt to change is met with a decent dose of resistance.

You can read books, say affirmations and work to shift your mindset, but it’s just that – a whole lot of work.

What if there was an easier way?

A way that takes time and intention, but not nearly as much work and struggle?

That’s where energy comes in.

Your energy is your vibe, otherwise known as your frequency. It’s the ‘how’ in how you show up.

Consider these two scenarios:

You wake up tired, drained and overwhelmed with a long to do list. Do you focus on your mindset and keep telling yourself to be grateful and muscle through it, forcing yourself to dutifully check each item off the list? Perhaps you get it all done, but it was drudgery in every sense of the word. On a scale of 1-10 your energy is about 2.5 and the end of the day.


Do you take a few minutes to shift your energy before starting on the list? Maybe you crank some music and dance around the house while getting ready? I don’t know about you, but music is one of the quickest ways to shift my energy into a more positive and open state. From there the list looks a little less daunting, maybe you even realize some things don’t need to be done, or there are others you can call on to help. You finish the day feeling happy, fulfilled and with enough energy left to enjoy dinner with your family.

Doesn’t that sound better?

Shifting your energy doesn’t have to be difficult and it doesn’t have to become a big ritual that adds a lot of time to your already overbooked day. But the results are huge.

Feeling like your energy could use a boost? Join us for Everyday Energy – a powerful 4 week course that starts next Wednesday April 10th. I’ll be sharing simple and powerful tools that shift your energy to help you sell more homes.

To your success!

Don’t Confuse Negotiable with Charging What Your Worth

March 29, 2024

There has been a lot of confusion about what negotiable means lately. Fees are negotiable, your value is not. Fees have always been negotiable. Clients have the ability to choose agents based on the fee they charge, because not everyone charges the same thing. You have the ability to negotiate your fee, if you so…
