Hello, I’m Trina. I am the creator of My Mighty Mind and here’s the story of how it came to life.
My career was in sales for a major blue chip company for 12 years where I managed a team of people and accounts. I worked hard and I loved my job. It was my identity. It was what made me feel good about myself on a daily basis.
Then I had my beautiful children and all that changed. Cue career crisis (I’m sure many of you can relate to this!) I went back into a horrendous new job, I was trying to juggle being a new mum and various other life challenges which were being thrown my way at the time and simply put, I couldn’t do it all. I felt I had failed – my mindset was about as negative as it could get and my mental health suffered.
But this was a new beginning. I had a breakthrough when I started to learn about the brain and how it is programmed to work. So I wasn’t broken or crazy – this was actually quite normal and there were lots of clever ways I could feel back in control and get my happy back – I just needed to challenge and control my mindset!
This is when My Mighty Mind was born. If my adult mind could be affected so much just by my thinking, how would young minds cope when faced with strong, uncomfortable emotions? How I wished I had learned this stuff when I was at school!
Now more than ever children need to understand how to be able to manage their mindsets – to be able to thrive in our competitive, comparing world, and safeguard their mental health. I am now passionate about sharing the importance of Mindset so I can help as many young minds as possible grow into happy, successful and healthy ones.
