How a Roller Coaster is Your LIFE!

What if every problem was a gift? ๐ŸŽ

Think about it:

๐ŸŒŸ Problems stem from the person who says there is a problem. ๐ŸŒŸ

But what is a problem to one person may in fact not be to another:

๐Ÿ“Œ You feel too cold in a room, but another person says the room temperature is just fine.

๐Ÿ“Œ You’re driving and worried about being somewhere late, but your friend assures you will be there plenty early.

๐Ÿ“Œ A person is blasting music you hate, but the other person says you just need to just loosen up.

Ask yourself:

๐Ÿ‘ What does this problem say about me? How am I feeling? What is the story I’m telling myself that is making this problem?

๐Ÿ‘ What are the potential solutions to this problem? How would solving this problem fast make me feel?

๐Ÿ‘ Is this problem really worth lingering over? Is it really worth sacrificing my internal happiness for this problem?

We ALL deal with problems. They’re not exclusive to a select few. ๐Ÿ‘ฅ

Most problems are not even that important! ๐Ÿ‘

We’ll create problems that aren’t there. We’ll magnify problems and make them bigger than they need to be. We’ll make them seem more life-or-death in our minds than they actually are

๐ŸŒŸ Focus far less on the problem and far more on the solutions. ๐ŸŒŸ

I’m not saying having a problem is “bad”. I’m saying let’s change our relationship with problems. Problems will always happen, but it’s how we work work with them, these hindrances, that will make all the difference. ๐Ÿ˜Š #TranscendLabels








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
