You Must Manage Your Mental Nutrition

3 minutes to read

In my conversations with business leaders and law firm owners, we’ve been talking a lot about mental nutrition.

Mental nutrition is the information that you’re putting in your mind.

One person might be all doom and gloom and the other is optimistic and proactive. One has a fixed mindset, and the other is focused on growing through adversity.

What’s the difference between these two? I’ve found that they’re consuming different information.

One might just be watching the news all day and getting terrified. They’re consuming content on social media that’s telling them they should be scared. They’re spending time around peers that encourage them to do less and to take it easy.

The power of community during this time is something that can’t be overstated.

If you can surround yourself with positive, optimistic people — and learn how they’re going to adapt and innovate — you might be surprised about how you start thinking.

Making the shift isn’t easy. It involves cutting people out of your life, cutting out information sources, and turning off the news.

If you are someone who’s a visionary, who’s growth-minded, and who wants to improve their situation for themselves, their family, their team, and community — then why would you let anyone discourage you from achieving that goal?

If you are clear on what you want, then why would you let anybody stand in the way of achieving that?

I encourage you to find and surround yourself with positive, growth-minded people. Your network is one of your most important resources.

We’ve been featuring growth-minded lawyers every single day about what they’re doing in their communities to make an impact and how they’re making their business better — how they’re setting themselves up to come out of this stronger than ever before.

On our weekly dial-ins, we feature panels of law firm owners that are focused on growth. On these exclusive conference calls, we’re talking about all the creative ways these leaders are improving their businesses and supporting their clients, families, and team through this chaotic time.

That’s a community that you want to be a part of. You want to surround yourself with people who are engaged and positive.

Shoot me a text and I’ll introduce you to them. You can text me at 404-531-7691.

I also invite you to join those weekly dial-ins I mentioned. You can register at, These are great sources of community.

I promise you there are no sales pitches in these dial-ins. You’re not going to be sold anything. This isn’t the time for that.

This is a time to surround ourselves with creativity and innovation — and together we can truly be better.

The question I get a lot of times is, “Where do you look for inspiration and guidance when you’re dealing with adversity and dealing with all these different challenges?”

I look to other people who are in the arena as well, other entrepreneurs who choose to take action and be proactive rather than allow themselves to be paralyzed by fear.

I encourage you to surround yourself with positive people and improve your mental nutrition — because what you consume is what you become.
