Free Chapter of the MINDSET ZONE Book

“Choose to press the pause button.”

-Ana Melikian

In this episode, the host, Ana Melikian, challenges listeners to imagine themselves as pencils—a seemingly simple tool with untapped potential. She delves into how the pencil symbolizes our innate ability to create, express, and make an impact and the crucial need to “sharpen” ourselves regularly to maintain effectiveness and precision.

Ana emphasizes that amidst the chaos of life and our myriad of excuses, it's essential to press the pause button, increase self-awareness, and recognize our true potential. The episode zeroes in on how mindsets are a vital tool for this transformation, helping us leverage strengths and compensate for weaknesses, ultimately leading us to live a more fulfilled and impactful life.

Listeners are invited to reflect on their own habits, the excuses that hold them back, and the small but significant steps they can take to realign with their goals. Ana also introduces her Mindset Zone book, filled with further insights and practical guidance, encouraging everyone to dive deeper into mindset work.
