The mindset describes the ways of thinking, beliefs and behavioral patterns or the inner attitude of people. The word mentality is often used as a synonym. The mindset is crucial for a successful and happy life and everyone can develop their mindset for such a life.
EXXpress life coach Carina Schwarz has a say in our Mindset Talk section Public figures and people with moving stories about their lives and especially their attitudes towards life.
As the first guest in this series, we welcome one of the most popular musical performers in German-speaking countries: Ana Milva Gomes has been drawn to the stage from childhood. With extraordinary talent, a lot of hard work and irrepressible will, the daughter of Cape Verdean immigrants successfully fought for leading musical roles in “Mamma Mia!”, “Sister Act” or “Cats”. In June 2017 Ana Milva Gomes was a candidate in the ORF dance show “Dancing Stars”, in which she came second. The native Dutch woman conquered the hearts of the audience both on the musical stage and in the ballroom, with her incomparable stage presence, her charisma and talent.
But she found her dream role away from the stage: In 2020, in the middle of the corona lockdown, Gomes became the mother of a daughter. For them she wrote the courageous book “Look at Me”, which will be published on November 25th. Moving and without any accusation, she tells of her responsibility as a black woman on stage – a passionate appeal to society for more openness and a conscious intercultural togetherness.
