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”My future is already predetermined for me.”ย ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ

๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ”It is what it is.”ย ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ

I use to tell myself I can’t help my Depression and Anxiety: it’s something I simply cannot change. It’s in my brain.

๐ŸŒŸย Once you’ve made up your mind about who you are, you stop looking for other possibilities.ย ๐ŸŒŸ

Why does the Fixed Mindset persist?

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

๐Ÿ“ย We live in environment which reinforce a Fixed Mindset. We are (indirectly) influenced by the things and people we surround ourselves with. Jim Rohn said: “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” We conform whether we want to or not.

๐Ÿ“ย The seed of a Growth Mindset is 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 “far off in the distance”, not tangible enough for us to believe it could also be our own.

So how did I change? I’ll give you some nuggets!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 also embracing a Growth Mindset. The best part of it is we learn and grow from each other, not simply reaffirm each other.

๐Ÿ‘ย I saw every problem as an opportunity to grow, not as a sign I should stop going towards my destination. I saw every problem as a GOOD thing!

๐ŸŒŸย Decide that your past will not dictate your future.ย ๐ŸŒŸ

See life as a “journey” rather than a “chore”. For those struggling, I understand. There are times I’ve slipped up myself, and I still do!ย ๐Ÿ‘ย You’re not alone; it’s an ongoing process for all of us!ย ๐Ÿ‘ฅ

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