Why You Should EMBRACE a Growth Mindset!

For a long period of my life I embraced a Fixed Mindset:

๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธย “I can’t change who I am.”ย ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ

๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธย “I’m either good at it or I’m not.”ย ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ

๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ “It is what it is.”ย ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ

I used to tell myself I can’t help my Depression and Anxiety: it’s something I cannot change. Because it’s a problem with my brain.

Why does the Fixed Mindset persist?

๐Ÿ“ย It lets us stay inside our comfort zones. It takes effort to change old beliefs. That’s why there’s the saying: “Old habits die hard.”

๐Ÿ“ย We live in environments which reinforce a Fixed Mindset. We’re influenced and molded by the things and people we surround ourselves with. As Jim Rohn put it: “๐˜ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜จ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ 5 ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ด๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ฉ.”

๐Ÿ“ย The seeds of a Growth Mindset are not often planted enough in our minds to want to change. We see it more often in glimpses: a superhero movie, a character’s example in a book, a short news story about a one-of-a-kind occurrence. It’s always “off in the distance”, never too close to home.

So, how did I change?ย ๐Ÿ˜€

๐Ÿ‘ย I made an active and dedicated commitment to embrace a Growth Mindset, rather than a Fixed Mindset. I traded it in!

๐Ÿ‘ย I surrounded myself with others who also embraced a Growth Mindset. That way, we learn and grow from each other, rather than simply reaffirm each other.

๐Ÿ‘ย I chose to see every problem as an opportunity to grow, not as a sign I should give up. I saw every problem as a POSITIVE: “Awesome, another challenge to solve!

๐ŸŒŸย ๐ƒ๐ž๐œ๐ข๐๐ž ๐ญ๐ก๐š๐ญ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐ฉ๐š๐ฌ๐ญ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ฅ๐ฅ ๐ง๐จ๐ญ ๐๐ข๐œ๐ญ๐š๐ญ๐ž ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐Ÿ๐ฎ๐ญ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ž.ย ๐ŸŒŸ

For those struggling, I understand. Changing your mindset doesn’t happen overnight. There are times I’ve slipped up myself, and I still do! ๐Ÿ‘

You’re not alone; it’s an ongoing process for all of us! ๐Ÿ‘ฅ

I’m rooting for your future success and your fulfillment! You got this!ย โค๏ธ
