Best of Ready. Aim. Empire: John Marcoux – Mindfulness for the Adversarial Mind

It’s a process of self-refinement, courage, and vulnerability, all of which require some serious mindset work as we battle insecurities and slay our inner demons.  And it’s always a process.

READY AIM EMPIRE : Best of Ready. Aim. Empire: John Marcoux – Mindfulness for the Adversarial Mind

Running a business forces you to get real about personal development. And fast.

It’s a process of self-refinement, courage, and vulnerability, all of which require some serious mindset work as we battle insecurities and slay our inner demons. 

And it’s always a process.

That’s why I dug up one of my favorite episodes from the Ready. Aim. Empire archive: Maura Vella, hosting the show with an equally incredible guest who also happens to be her business partner and mentor. 

John Marcoux is the founder and owner of 105F, a yoga, Pilates and mindfulness studio in Chicago, but in addition to the studio space, John has also carved out a career in speaking on the power of positivity and mindfulness for the adversarial mind. 

This episode is a heavy hitter, so find yourself a quiet space, let yourself be fully present and open to what John has to share because it may just change not only your business but also your life. 

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • How John’s attendance at his first hot yoga class changed the course of his career 
  • What is an adversarial trap and three cognitive boosters you can use to avoid them
  • John’s thoughts on misdirected or chronic pessimism and the three catastrophic pessimisms you need to tune into
  • The true meaning of leadership and choice and how they play a role specifically in the world of studio ownership
  • How to use your character and signature strengths to your advantage to impact the quality of your life, your work, and what you bring to your community
