An Empowering Mindset

“Once your mindset changes, everything on the outside will change along with it.”
Steve Maraboli

.
How we experience life, both the good and the bad, largely depends on our attitude about the events that happen to us. Some people see a challenge and start complaining to no end while others see the same challenge and get fired up to overcome it.

.
As you approach a challenge, that inner voice may say to you. ”Are you sure you can do it? Maybe you do not have the talent.’ ‘What if you fail – you’ll be seen as a failure’.

.
How you interpret challenges, setbacks, and criticism is your choice. You can interpret them in a limited mindset as signs that you your talents or abilities are lacking. Or you can interpret them in a growth mindset as signs that you need to improve your strategies and effort, to stretch our self, and expand our abilities. It is up to you.

.
So as you face challenges, setbacks, and criticism, listen out for the fixed mindset voice.

.
As you approach a challenge:

.
A limited mindset says “Are you sure you can do it? Maybe you do not have the ability.”

.
A growth mindset answers, “I am not sure I can do it now, but I think I can learn to with time and some effort.”

.
A limited mindset: “What if you fail – you will be a failure”

.
A growth mindset: “Most successful people had failures along the way.”

.
Our mindset is the entire system of thinking, believing and deciding that drives the sum of our action or inaction in life. Having the right mindset is vital when it comes to getting more out of life.

.
Focus on yourself. Get in the right frame of mind for your life and empower yourself. An effective mindset is one that makes the best use of available resources – your time, energy and efforts – and uses them to create positive change.

.
Look at the way you view things today. Is your mindset holding you back or pushing you to do better?  Commit to drive you forward through growth, purpose and self belief.

.
“Today, you have the opportunity to transcend from a dis-empowered mindset of existence to an empowered reality of purpose-driven living. Today is a new day that has been handed to you for shaping. You have the tools, now get out there and create a masterpiece.”
Steve Maraboli
