4 Steps to a growth mindset.
The #1 change in your mindset to create growth in whatever you want to accomplish, you have to believe. Believe it more than anything that it’s possible and that you can make it happen. So much hangs on this first step. This is were so many have abandoned or decided not to start in the first place.
Look at it this way. If someone else has done it before, then there is no reason why you can’t. Everyday success stories are being written. Mountains are climbed and books are published. Businesses are launched successfully against all odds.
Why do 2 people with access to the same resources
don’t achieve the same results?
We all have what it takes. But for some, fear sets in before any decisions are taken. Without belief, extinguish the flame of great ideas. Belief is the determining factor. Changing this mindset and seeing your accomplishment as if they have already happened. Your thoughts produce your reality. Think that you will fail…you will fail. See in your mind that it has already happened…you will succeed.
How bad do you want it? Does it burn a hole in your soul not having what you want? We all have limitations. We all face obstacles. We are no different from one another. The definition of purpose is the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists. A clear and defined purpose is important in achieving a growth mindset.
Find the way to get to where you want to be. You need to find the answers. You must get the training you require if you are lacking some skills. No one will just walk up to you and throw all the tools you need on the table in front of you.
There will always be someone ready to help out in any way they can. Knowledge, time, money, these resources are all around us. If you believe strong enough, you will find a way to get your hands on them.
Stop trying to be perfect and wait for that perfect moment. Just start and create some movement. Doing this will generate momentum and the first thing you will discover, your actions will snowball into more actions. Taking massive action is the closer in these 4 steps. You can have all the belief. Your purpose is clear and defined. All the resources in the world are within your reach. But without massive action, you will go nowhere fast. Your dreams will remain a dream.
The perfect timing doesn’t exist. Waiting for the optimal shot can waste you a lifetime. How many times have you heard a friend say « I thought of that years ago. If I would have started that business, I would have become the success ». There is also the story of 2 people starting a race. One waits until he gets the best equipment. He waits for the perfect weather. Then, you have the second person, she stats immediately. Taking it slow and creating forward movement. While the first, he hasn’t started yet. By the time he starts, she will already be far ahead and will have almost reached her goal.
We get into analysis paralysis. Trying to find all angles where we could fail. Not seeing the possible success. Fear of failure keeps you from taking massive action. Without action, progress is none existent. Without progress, the only outcome is the status quo.
If you don’t know exactly
where you want to be in 5 years,
you are already where you will be.
It can be anything. Nothing is too small or too big. We all have something we would like to achieve. It may be getting out of credit card debt or paying off your mortgage faster. For some, it may be writing a book or changing careers. Whatever it is, change your mindset and watch your life change before your eyes. These steps will create a growth mindset.
