Our mindset is the lens through which we experience everything. If you view stress positively you will live much longer. Forming new thought processes to minimize negative self-talk allows us to experience things fully. We continue to miss out on important moments in life being distracted by thoughts about a past or upcoming experiences. If you view a bad experience as a learning experience you will become much smarter and efficient. “Take that issue, take that setback, take that problem, and turn it into something good." (Jocko Willink) Any negative experience tell yourself “Good”, a chance to get better. We need to continually remind ourselves of the big picture instead of letting our minds define our moment to moment experiences. Practice a growth mindset with your actions, reactions and thoughts.
Whether you think you can or can’t do something, either way you’re right.
The mind separates the good from the best individuals in every field, the top performers have no limits on what they think can be accomplished. We are all walking around with super computers in our heads but most of us aren’t using them this way. Self-belief may be the most important thing you can do for yourself because from there you can grow. A growth mindset will help you to improve all areas of your life with a compounding effect. You can learn, practice, improve and do things you never thought you would be able to do. Your limiting beliefs are most often passed down from your parents, DNA, and traditional education. When you have not yet moved towards a growth mindset, your internal dialogue cues you to look for things to confirm your limiting beliefs. With anything you want to achieve, continually ask yourself “why not me?"
