Do you think you can get ahead in your life without investing time, energy and commitment to achieve your goals and new accomplishments? There are two types of people, they are those that have a growth mindset and there are those that have a fixed mindset. It ain’t too difficult to identify which mindset will bring you challenges, anxiety, growth, fulfilment and gratitude in your life. If you’re someone that disagrees with what I’m saying right now well I pretty much know which mindset you have.
Don’t get me wrong. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a fixed mindset. Many lead a full life with a mindset like that. They are happy. I’m not saying that fixed mindset will not give you anything in life. It can bring you happiness. It can bring you love and a great life on your terms.
Predictable outcomes are often associated with a fixed mindset. The past dictates the future. Seeing the future through past experience. Already knowing that things are gonna happen because that is the way it does. This just puts you down the path of the same old same old day in day out.
A growth mindset will have a path that is not predefined. It’s not an easy path. Having a growth mindset opens the doors to all possibilities that will bring you so much. Well if you look around at those that are very successful in life, they plan, they foresee and they project into the future the things that they would want to have or create in their minds the future they want to live in as if it has already happened.
Then they go above and beyond in an effort to defined what need to be done to get them. They don’t get bogged down by failures or what happened in the past. The failures become a catalyst to grow and they learn from them. They don’t project what will happen with what happened in the past. They know that the past is in the past. They define what is going to happen in the future. They take actions to create their future, not have their future handed to them.
It takes hard work, it takes commitment, it takes so much out of you that when you get there you are filled with gratefulness towards what is accomplished and where you’re at in your life. It will give you freedom. It will give you what you require to have a great and fulfilling life. Growth mindset will bring the future that you want.
Life is for risk takers. Sounds cheesy but it’s true. If taking risks is not for you, don’t complain that you missed many opportunities. Oh, I thought of that 2 years ago…sound familiar? Become how you what to become. Don’t let your past dictate your future. Take control and have a growth mindset.
