Do Mental Rehearsal to Set Your Career Up for Success - Mindi Huebner, episode 82



With more than 20 years of experience working in content marketing, Sarah Panus has become an expert of brand storytelling and her podcast aims to help brand content marketers better connect with their audiences through empathy-centered brand storytelling. 

On today’s episode, she’s joined by Mindi Huebner, a health, life and success Coach, intuitive mindset mastery coach, and clinical hypnotherapist. They discuss the magic that is the human brain, and how we can trick it to help us succeed in life. 

The brain filters through our own beliefs, and our brains not having the ability to discern what’s real and fake is what gives us the power to “fake it ‘til you make it.” By mentally rehearsing our goals and adopting an “of course energy,” we can hack on brains to become who we want to be. 

It’s time to be curious about yourself and stop limiting your success through long-held beliefs! Just like Sarah tells her kids, “whether you think you can or can’t, you’re right.” 

If you want to improve some aspect of your professional life; you’re struggling with self confidence; or have a goal you just can’t seem to reach; tune in to discover Mindi’s secret sauce to rewiring your brain and discovering what’s truly important to you!
