Parenting is Hard!
Live Your Best Life!
Welcome to Mind Traction. I’m Jess Burnett, a dedicated teacher and mum of three. Working with children and teenagers for close to a decade, helped me find my life purpose; to ensure that children have every opportunity to achieve their success by cultivating the right mindset. I aim to share my evidence-based knowledge and hands-on experience with other loving parents and caregivers so they may cultivate a success mindset in their child. Cultivating a success mindset in your child will provide incredible transformations in self-confidence, energy, and attitude.
To provide connection, community, support, inspiration and resources to help other parents feel confident that they have the skills to raise successful, motivated and driven kids.
To reach and support parents across the globe by arming them with the knowledge, actionable steps and confidence they need to raise their children to be resilient and success-minded individuals who achieve to their full potential.
We value honesty, trust and integrity. Kindness is essential and inclusivity is non-negotiable. Support for others is the driving force behind our community. Parenting is hard. No-one is perfect and we are all in this together!

Articles to Inspire
The action of turning up to class without the necessary materials is often not a reflection of their financial means to have the materials, but rather a choice. Why would a child make this choice? There are a few reasons, but the biggest one is fear, usually fear of ‘looking dumb’ to their peers.
Children experience self-belief and self-confidence in the same way. A child may have the internal self-belief in their ability to learn or complete a task, but lack the self-confidence to take action and give it a go.
Depression. Unemployment. Anxiety. Divorce — it’s dark, isn’t it? This is the sad reality of experiences written into the history books under the banner of ‘economic recession’. And, it is safe to say that the world is scared right now.
When we think of confident people, we often think of our leaders, our stage performers and our sports stars. The truth is many of these people are not as naturally self-confident as we may at first perceive. They suffer from fear just like you, and I do.
Every parent wants their child to be motivated, driven and inspired. We all want our children to work hard, achieve their goals, and live their best life. We want them to live happy and fulfilled.
