Mindset Stories Podcast

The Mindset Stories Podcast is grounded in the practicalities of the highs and the lows of life. It is emotionally compelling, insightful and inspirational with the goal of helping others understand and develop their mindset. Our aim is to achieve this understanding of the human mindset through the thought provoking and motivational stories of our guests, as we uncover the underlying aspects of their mindset that either helped them or hindered them along their journey.

David and Frank invite people to understand the depth of the human mindset and how it plays out in all our daily lives. They believe that the peak experiences of life (the highs) and especially the nadir experiences (the lows) can be analyzed from a perspective that allows people to broaden their mindset, so we are better equipped to live life in a much more calm, rewarding and constructive manner.

Everyone has a story. We believe that there are aspects to everyone’s unique circumstances that can inspire and motivate others, and the idea behind this podcast is that through shared storytelling people have the ability to heal and transform their lives, or more compassionately support others.

Join the conversation every Monday over on iTunes, Spotify or Podomatic or whenever you are up, or down or inspired enough to listen in.
