I’ve been right there with you…for YEARS!
I have a solution for you and it’s really a simple secret
Something that all successful people do. I’ll show you how to change Your Mindset for success just like the pro’s do. Most people assume their mindset is set in stone.
They use expressions like:
- I’ve always been this way.
- Success doesn’t come easy for me.
- A leopard can’t change its spots.
- Good things just don’t happen to me.
It’s easy to believe that when you become an adult, you cease to grow. You might think that your abilities, skills, and habits are now permanent. Some people call this mindset a fixed mindset. This is important if you want to understand your way of thinking. A fixed mindset can lead you to adjust your expectations for your life based on what you think is possible for you.
For example, you might say, “Well, I was never good at understanding business, so I can’t pursue my lifelong dream of becoming an entrepreneur.” What most people don’t know is that there’s a second mindset you can choose to embrace. This mindset is called a growth mindset.
Growth Mindset? What’s That?
With a growth mindset, you recognize that though you may lack certain skills and abilities, they can be developed. You might say, “It’s true that I struggled to understand that business course I took in high school. But if I keep working at it, I can develop the skills I need to build a successful business.”
The important thing to understand about a growth mindset is it fosters resilience or an ability to try again even after disappointing setbacks and crushing failure. You’ve heard the saying “If you fall off the horse, just get right back on it again”.
For example, your goal is to start your own hosting company. You need capital to buy servers and employ a programmer. You go to the bank and apply for a loan. The loan officer takes one look at your business plan and smirks. He tells you that your business plan is too poorly written and jumbled to even make sense of.
I Think I Have A Fixed Mindset
If you have a fixed mindset, you might leave the bank thinking that you can’t succeed now. You may say things like, “The loan manager was right. I can’t even write a business plan. How the heck am I ever going to build a successful hosting company?”
But if you choose a growth mindset, you look at this setback as an opportunity to grow. You say to yourself, “Well, maybe my business plan does need some work. I’ll go to the library and check out a book on how to write a business plan. I know if I study this topic, I can write a better plan.”
With the growth mindset, you can bounce easier. Tigger Style! Bounce right over that obstacle.
You don’t think of your skills as stuck in one place, rather you view them as something you’re continually evolving and honing. This is how you change your mindset for success, your changed outlook can help you overcome obstacles that you’ll encounter on the path toward success.
