2 | Mac Brazina | Fascinating Mindset Strategies: The Other 23 Hours, Personal Empowerment, and Why Your Biggest Competitor is Yourself


In today’s show, we have a chat with human building coach, Mac Brazina who shares with us her thoughts on cultivating mental toughness, self-care, and women’s empowerment.

When Mac first started Human Builder, she was focusing solely on physical training. However, she soon found her true calling which was helping her clients cultivate a stellar mindset. 

Be it the boxing ring, business, or life in general, you will learn that your biggest competition is with yourself. 

John reveals the mosquito principle from his Passion Struck Framework at this juncture and shares how you swat out the people, habits, and influences that are holding you back.

The comfort of a safety net, mounting anxiety, and the resulting negative self-talk pull us down and prevents us from leading a purpose-filled life.

In today’s show, Mac encourages one and all to have an open discussion on mental wellness.  We share some great self-care tips so that forge ahead instead of internalizing your pain.
