It’s Mindful Monday! Taking charge of your mindset is a key strategy in Mindfulness. Research shows it is also essential to your success! As an executive coach and psychotherapist over the last two decades, I have observed that the most successful people understand and apply the principle of taking charge of their thoughts and beliefs.
