134: A moment of awakening, a massive mindset shift - Garrain Jones

A moment of awakening, a massive mindset shift This podcast is all about getting your mind right so that you can make a positive impact on your immediate world and ultimately the greater world around you. Today we're joined by Garrain Jones. A man who truly walks his walk and does what he speaks. Not coming from a positive upbringing and "not seeing the frame while you're in it" Garrain's life eventually led him to be homeless, in massive debt, relationships in shambles, with no direction of where to go. It wasn't until he bottomed out and was able to truly listen and observe life around him did he have his massive awakening moment. It wasn't until a little conversation that changed everything and taught him the perspective, "change your mindset, change our life"  Almost 7 years later, Garrain is now a transformational coach, serial entrepreneur and world-renowned speaker getting paid to do what he loves. He advocates for people all around the world on how to be the best version of themselves so that they can lead their lives with healthy habits, relationships and ultimately the proper mindset. He has a book coming out soon entitled, "Change your mindset, change your life" Today we chat about: How to truly live and not just exist How he went from homeless to successful entrepreneur/transformational coach - his “moment of awakening” Why it’s OK if you didn’t grow up in an environment of positivity The power of focusing on what you want with emotion How the phrase “change your mindset, change your life” if used properly, can help you build everything you’ve ever wanted out of life Why we all have “awakening moments” and how to pay attention to them Why most of us don’t realize we ourselves are the root cause of our problems Garrain’s perspective on how he changed his mindset around unhealthy habits A moment of gratitude with Garrain CLICK HERE to get updates from Garrain on his book release and check him out on Instagram @Garrain.Jones Another episode of The Positivity Effect goes live next week - Stay Tuned !!!
