About Carrie Veatch

Carrie Veatch is a Location Independent Mindset Coach who helps clients build lives of time, financial, and location freedom. Carrie uses neuroscience to teach clients to rewire their brains through mindset work, solution-based coaching, and nervous system regulation tools so that they know they are worthy of everything they desire!

Why Carrie Veatch became a mindset coach

Carrie has a master’s in counseling and she has always been interested in helping people and intrigued by their patterns and behavior. When she found out about coaching, she knew that it was meant to be. 

What are you afraid of? – two powerful questions to ask yourself 

If you are not getting what you want and you are putting in the work, there is something subconscious going on. Many people work hard and have big dreams, yet they are always in the same place. Strategies are great but Carrie reminds us that it is what is underneath the surface that makes a difference. Her favorite questions to ask are:

-What am I afraid of if I have more than enough?

-What am I afraid of if I have more than other people?

Many people do not think they are afraid of things but when you dig deep, many of these subconscious patterns date back to childhood or older memories. The things in our subconscious hold us back from our bigger visions. Our brain’s job is to keep us safe so we need to learn how to create safety that we need but to know that we can expand in the process. Fear is not real, it is just the stories in our minds that prevent us from obtaining these goals.  Carrie also reminds us that internal work is important because you can build the most successful business in the world but if you do not feel worthy, you are going to go back to your lowest level of programming.

Our beliefs allow us to take actions 

Carrie shares that she used to be the biggest skeptic about mindset work. She did not believe that she needed to work on her mindset. A great example of limitations and mindset work is the story of the four-minute mile. For years, no one thought it was possible to run a sub-four minute mile. There was no evidence to show it but as soon as Roger Bannister broke that record, the next year 50+ people went on to do it as well. This was because they had the belief. This highlights how much we need to work on our beliefs so that we can take action. 

Getting comfortable with being uncomfortable

Celeste shares with us the impact that David Goggins had on her. She has thought about the quote “Start getting comfortable with being uncomfortable” for years. You may feel like you are going to die in the process, but if you stay comfortable you are not growing. When you do something that scares you, you feel on top of the world and that you can do anything. 

Mindset work should be a daily practice – keep it simple!

Wherever you are on your journey, have grace for yourself. We are not taught things like mindset or mindfulness throughout our lives. There is always a progression in improving our mindset so we need to put in the daily work. We have all been conditioned to see social media and the highlight reel and we often get trapped in comparison. This is where our inner gremlin can come out to play.

We need to train our brains in simple ways. If you are a busy mom, you need to figure out how to practice improving your mindset when you feel like you have zero time. You can catch your thoughts when you are washing the dishes or checking your mindset at the end of the day to celebrate things. You do not have to spend a lot of time to make changes.

Celebrate the small victories 

At the end of the day, we need to focus on our wins. It does not mean they have to be really big wins, they can be small victories. You will start to see how much celebrating these improves your life. Celeste shares that she now pays attention to the way that she talks about herself so her daughter can see a different example. Giving yourself grace is so important. We all think that the big moments are what changes our lives but the tiny moments are what add up to create our desires. 

Using journaling, voice notes, and video to record wins

Carrie is a fan of what you focus on expanding so if you do not like journaling, that is okay. Carrie recommends using voice notes or record a video to celebrate your wins. This can also help because you can capture the feelings and emotions of that moment.

The importance of tapping into the “feeling state”

Carrie’s biggest secret to manifesting or getting what you desire is the “feeling state.” Even if you are a logical person, this is scientifically proven with brain scans. If you can get into the feeling state before getting what you desire, then you can become a magnet for the opportunity for those things to happen. The power we have within ourselves is so important. The fastest way to change your life is to tap into the feeling of everything you want because that is actually what you desire – not the external things you think you want. 

You need to take action toward your desires

It is not enough to just be aligned with our desires, we need to take action as well. Carrie shares that when you get a download or moment of clarity, you need to take action on it. For example, if you are in meditation and you have a nudge that says “Call Susan” – even if you feel crazy, take action. You will see massive results when you are willing to do this.

Simplifying the process – creating smaller goals

Carries very first online client went from making $100 a month to $11,000 a month, in one month. Carrie helped her get into these states and made sure to follow up and hold her accountable. Her biggest goal with any client, friend, or colleague, is to simplify things for them. She has a skill for giving people plans and helping them execute them. It is not as hard as we make it out to be. It may be scary but it is usually pretty simple. Celeste shared that she recently went on a podcast and she was very nervous. She made a small goal of meeting at least three people and this made her feel better than she would have if she created a big goal that she could not accomplish. She probably would not have gone if she made an unattainable goal. 

There is a lot of research that shows people quit on themselves because they made too big of a goal and they got defeated. Having a vision that is bigger than you is important but we need to focus on the small things. This allows you to be proud of yourself when you accomplish something and again, it puts you in the feeling state of what you desire. 

Being willing to hear feedback

Carrie shares that it is important to surround yourself with like-minded people and borrow their belief systems. They might be someone who sees the vision for you and has your best interest at heart. She shares that the more we are willing to hear feedback, the better we will be. We need to check our egos and have grace with ourselves. 

Ask yourself this question: “Where do I stop myself?” & don’t be afraid to ask for help!

Carrie also shares this question we can ask ourselves; “Where do I stop myself?” Most of us have a thermostat for how good we allow things to feel. Oftentimes when things start getting really good, we start sabotaging. It is good to check in with ourselves and see where we stop ourselves. It could be before the big act for the contract or after you get the contract. Gauging that and checking in can really show us a lot.

If you notice yourself in a pattern and you have no idea why you are in it, you might need some perspective outside of yourself. This could be through a mastermind, coach, or an accountability buddy. Do not delay in getting this help. You can change so fast when you have an objective perspective versus trying to do this yourself. Celeste shares that even coaches need coaches.

How to have the life that you truly desire

Carrie shares in order to have the life we truly desire, we need to decide what we want, not what the world tells us that we want. We have to own the fact that we want something in the first place. We may be scared that someone is going to judge us or that something bad is going to happen. We are so conditioned to not be comfortable with what we want. Again, give yourself grace in this process because so much of the world tells us it is not okay to want what we want. The more you are okay with your desires, the more space you have to invite those in and create the life that you want. 

A fun way to call in your desires – writing a letter to your future self

Carrie shares the practice of writing a letter to your future self every 6-12 months. This does not have to be super elaborate just make sure you use the present tense and get into the feeling state. You can use “futureme.org” and put in a date and it will send it to you on that date. This is fun because we often create a life that we do not even realize we are creating. We need to create by design!
