Today we discuss how to instantly shift your mindset and live a happier and more empowered life.


Each and every one of us is a work in progress that faces countless challenges in life. Most of these challenges are very difficult to overcome without a real sense of who we really are at our core. It’s when we are able to face our fears with the mindset that we can overcome them that things will begin to change for the better.

Unfortunately, a lot of us tend to run away from our challenges or remain victim to our circumstances. These choices only lead us to feel disappointed and powerless. When we set the intention to shift our thoughts and overall mindset, we can begin living an empowered and fulfilling life.

My guest, Donna Blevins, PhD, is a MindShift coach, motivational speaker, and international professional poker player. She joins me today to share how she used her MindShift Exercises™ to accelerate her miraculous recovery from a life-threatening stroke. Donna provides insight into the powerful benefits of mind shifting on demand and walks us through the steps of a mind shift exercise.

  • Achieving permanent happiness instead of reaching for temporary fixes
  • Overcoming our chronic challenges in order to bring out our own brilliance
  • Turning off the negativity around us and tuning back into our own selves
  • The three things we can do to completely shift our minds
  • How the words we say to ourselves set us up for either success or failure

“When we wait for all of the information, opportunity doors are passed and shut. It’s important to learn to shift your mindset in the moment.”  –  Donna Blevins, PhD

Dr. Donna is a high-profile, successful entrepreneur, who could have lost everything in one life-shattering moment. Instead, she found the keys to controlling her mind and body.

Instantly, she geared up and tested the limits of her mind-shifting exercises and proved they worked.

Along with mindshift coaching in all walks of life, Donna’s expertise and innovative, game-based brain-retraining techniques have helped wounded warriors suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and traumatic brain injury, which earned her the Recognition Award from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Her skillset broadens her mindshift coaching to include business people and college graduates, as well as people dealing with midlife crises, retirees, and poker players.

Donna is dedicated to the vision of universal prosperity, and she is a life-student committed to the philosophy that now is always the right time to learn. Donna went back to school and earned her Doctorate at the age of 66.

Donna believes that controlling your mindset is the biggest challenge most people experience, regardless of age.
