Side hustles

Lindsay asks Joan to explain what a side hustle is.

Joan explains that a side hustle is additional work you do aside from your regular 9-5 job.

It is an additional source of income as well.

In today’s episode, Joan will share how we can gear ourselves towards success.

She will impart three thinking habits that she recommends.

These will equip anyone to hit their goals and achieve whatever they want in life.

Anyone can succeed

The habits Joan shares are for everyone.

No matter where you are in the world, this can apply to you.

The desire to succeed is global and these tips will help any person who wants to thrive.

#1: Decide

Most people don’t really decide.

This is different from listing everything you want to achieve or talking about plans and goals.

It’s rare that someone decides.

Whatever you decide on should excite you.

Don’t let your present circumstances dictate what your future goal will be.

It’s your thoughts and feelings that drive behavior.

These behaviors are what propels us toward action.

Metaphor of an orange tree

Joan relates deciding to the seed of an orange tree.

When you plant the orange tree seed on fertile ground, nurture and care for it, you expect it to grow into an orange tree.

Think of us as the seed.

Knowing that you are destined for success is one thing.

Taking the action to plant ourselves and nurture ourselves so we can grow is what makes the difference.

#2: Believe

Develop a strong belief in yourself.

You have more talent, potential, and possibility than what you give yourself credit for.

Your potential is infinite.

Stop harboring doubt and fear that hinder you to accomplish your goals.

Surround yourself with people who will support you and will bring you peace.

Create an environment that will help you thrive.

You have to find a way to release yourself from the limitations you perceive to be there.

#3: Just start

Many people get stuck planning and never get started.

You may have been thinking about your goals for a long time and done the research.

Now you have to start bringing it into reality.

Joan recommends to go far as you can see and keep going further.

You don’t need to know what’s ahead.

Just take the first step and the next steps will appear.


Attaining success is achievable as long as you don’t limit yourself.

Don’t get bogged down with fears and doubts.

Joan Posivy’s three thinking habits will help you achieve whatever you want in 2024.

Decide to take action on all the things you’ve been planning to do.

Believe you can do it and release your inhibitions.

The universe is waiting for you to take the first step to the life you’ve always wanted.

Just start, and everything else will fall into place.

What are the actions you’re taking to get closer to your goals in 2024?
