My Father Was Pointing the Gun STRAIGHT AT ME.

But my mother’s screams distracted him, so I watched as he swung the shotgun toward my mother, pulled the trigger, then as he flipped the end of the gun toward himself and pulled the trigger again. Suddenly I realized both of my parents were lying dead in front of me. It was Father’s Day, and […]

Uncovering Blind Spots and Competing Commitments Leads to Awareness

In a recent medical study, heart doctors told their seriously at-risk heart patients they would literally *DIE* if they didn’t make changes to their personal lives. Guess what percentage of patients ACTUALLY made the changes their doctors told them to? (And for what it’s worth, we’re talking basic changes here — like diet, smoking, and […]

Make (So Much) Money Just By Reading My Blog Posts!!

Or…at least read how this one lovely fellow did… I recently received this incredible private message (totally out of the blue). Wow!!!!!! ???? “Hey [Erin] just wanted to share a big business win thanks to one of your blog posts! I closed a corporate deal with a big American company (you know, one of those […]

How a Man In His 40s Who’d Been Lazy His ENTIRE LIFE Discovered (In 30 Minutes) He Was Never, In Fact, Lazy at All…

Earlier this year, I worked 1:1 with an incredible, powerful Influencer (yes — Influencer with a capital “I” — odds are, you absolutely know this guy…). Despite all his incredible successes, his companies, and his connections, in our first conversation he confessed he was actually nervous about his future and his happiness — because he […]

Thinking What You Went Through Was “No Big Deal”…. Doesn’t Help You Heal

If you walked into a home near you and saw a father whipping his very young daughter with a belt, how would you feel? No big deal? Would it make you uncomfortable? How do you think the young child might be feeling? I was speaking with a friend this week who’s been contemplating why she […]

Erin on the Shane Sams’ Podcast

We had SUCH a great time connecting for a full hour about his personal MindFix experiences, our take on entrepreneurship, big life lessons, how our perceptions mold our lives, and so much more. Listen to the episode on […]

A Danger of Doing Too Much Personal Development Work (or of Being One of Those “Really Positive” People)

Every so often in our work at MindFix we come across a person we’ll (lovingly) call a “Rainbower.” People who Rainbow (as a verb) are often extremely pleasant to be around, and often appear to be doing amazingly on the outside: They’re usually always positive. They typically reframe events to be in their best interest. […]

Acknowledging Childhood Trauma is Part of Your Healing Journey

Having hot sauce shoved down his throat. Having his little head slammed into cabinet doors. Being told she’d be left out on the streets, alone. Being punished without explanation. Spanked with a metal spatula. Hearing she is fat and ugly at the age of 6. How would you feel if you watched that happen to […]

Replacing “I Have To” and “I Need To” With “I GET To”

One of my favorite language habit changes I made in the past couple years is tossing “I have to” and “I need to” and replacing them with “I GET to”. I sat here this morning thinking of… the clients I’ll be supporting with this week the team member I’ll be speaking with tomorrow the conversations […]
