Mindset and why it matters

Your mindset is one of the most important tools you have in your toolbox that you can use to feel your best. By shifting your mindset, you are able to influence how you think and feel about any situation you may be facing. Psychologists, including Carol Dweck, have found that your mindset is one of the biggest indicators when it comes to determining achievement and success.

When you are able to control your mindset, you are better able to convince yourself that you deserve great things. If you believe that you deserve great things, you are more likely to seek out great opportunities that you can then seize. Shifting your mindset feeds into the law of attraction, when you have a positive mindset - you are also a better worker, and people will actually want to give you greater opportunities. Shifting your mindset will also have a profound impact on your confidence. As you gain these greater opportunities, too often we think “I am not good enough to do this” or “I’m going to get this wrong”. Shifting these thoughts into those such as “I am going to be great at this” or even “I am going to do my best and learn something” has such a profound impact on the way we hold ourselves, are perceived by others - and, you guessed it, on how we actually do the job.

In this way, your mindset is also critical in maintaining your close relationships. If you have a negative mindset, where you tell yourself you don't deserve good things, you are more likely to enter unfulfilling relationships that don't help you grow or become the best version of yourself. On the other hand, a positive mindset has been proven to lead to greater self-worth which will reflect itself in more positive, growth-oriented relationships that encourage you and propel you further in the direction of your dreams. These relationships are not only your personal ones (although they are so important!) but also your business ones too.

Having a positive mindset will propel you towards growth. This is often why some people talk about ‘getting a growth mindset’. At the heart of this idea is that a negative mindset will stagnate you where you are. If you want to shift your mindset, we encourage you to pay attention to your thoughts and how you are feeding them. If you find that your thoughts are overwhelmingly negative, we would encourage you to try our favourite hack of including the word ‘yet’. For instance, if your thoughts are currently “I don't have a multi-million dollar business” or “I can't meditate for more than 5 minutes”, we encourage you to shift those to “I don't have a multi-million dollar business… yet '' or “i can't meditate for more than 5 minutes… yet”.
