Entrepreneurship isn’t perfect! It’s exciting, messy, twisted, fun, and much like a motorcycle ride. So worth it.
This show is about helping people build businesses that allow them the freedom to live more, work less – and create the life they are meant to live.
What is mental fitness? I prefer Flinders University’s definition:
“Your ability to cope with and meet the psychological demands of life, without undue fatigue or damage to your mind or body”.
“A personal framework for understanding what we can do, as individuals, to build a happier and more productive life.”
In my book, The Successful Living Podcast, I speak extensively about self-discovery. Awareness is the first step when it comes to self-discovery. Without it nothing can change. If your goal is mental fitness, you must have the desire for it. The desire for mental fitness comes from the desire for feelings of well-being and good health.
This is where behavior change starts to happen. You must believe that mental fitness is desirable, important, and necessary. Therefore, you have to start with becoming aware of your beliefs around fitness. In particular, mental fitness.
This awareness leads to goals for achieving mental fitness. Like any fitness goal, you make choices based on those goals. Once those goals are established, your behavior must align with your goals.
Where can you start? Start by becoming aware of your habits and how they affect your mental health. The foods you eat, the physical environment in which you live and the beliefs you embrace lead to your habits. Becoming aware of those habits is a great start towards mental fitness.
If you are experiencing symptoms of depression or other mental health concerns, please seek guidance from your physician before considering any mental fitness goal or program.

In 2008, with less than five hundred dollars, I launched Rivera Business Development. I did it because of the belief that entrepreneurship could provide the means to rise above one’s circumstances — and it does.
Now I want to help you in your entrepreneurial journey.
