Lane first learned of the principles behind state of mind in 2016 through her husband, Rick Zarate, and has since brought State of Mind training to individuals in her organization and seen remarkable changes.
In today’s conversation, you get to hear from Lane Zarate. In Lane’s line of work, dealing with conflict resolution and problem-solving is a big part of her day to day. She used to experience pressure and anxiety in her job, believing it was all on her to have the answers. These feelings began to shift when she heard something simple yet profound: “We all naturally have mental health, but for our thinking.” She realized the worry she felt was a result of insecure thinking, an insight that provided considerable comfort and relief. Lane shares how this understanding allowed her to approach her role in business with more ease, confidence and enjoyment.
