Daily Inspiration: MindShift

On this Meditation Monday, I have focused on mindfulness and mindful eating. So, for tonight's daily inspiration, I present you with an inspirational video from Tony Robbins. In the video, Tony discusses how to shift your mind from a negative mindset to a positive mindset.

Decide to develop the habit, right now, of focusing on what's right in your world, instead of what's wrong...the habit of focusing on what you do have, instead of what you don't have. -

Here is a brief summary

of Tony’s 5 steps to a positive


  1. Feed the mind– read, think, focus, take control of your thoughts and what you’re here to give.
  2. Feed the body–  get physical, change your body, lift weights, go for a run.
  3. Find a role model – someone to inspire you and show you the way
  4. Develop a plan – get yourself into action, get a plan
  5. Feed your spirit– find what you’re grateful for, take time to pray or meditate and give to others.

“You’re not skeptical or pessimistic, you’re gutless. It takes no guts or courage to be a pessimist, to say it’s not going to work, to try and find out what’s wrong. What’s wrong is always available…So is what’s right.”

~ Tony Robbins

About Tamara Hoerner (1258 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
