Why Mindset Reskilling is Important for Career Success
Have you ever looked at people who have achieved mastery in life or successful people and wondered how they came to be? Do you feel they are more talented and gifted; hence their success is granted? Or do you rather believe that success stems from hard work, inspiration, mentoring, investment in learning and self-improvement?
Consciously or not, how you choose to view life and interpret experiences sets a boundary on how far you can go and how much you can achieve. Your beliefs influence what you achieve.
What all this mean is this, there is so much power in believing that you can improve, get better and accomplish anything you set out to do by interpreting setbacks and failures as media for growth. One becomes resilient and tough in the face of challenges.
How then do you shift from being limited in thinking, intelligence and abilities to being limitless in building these abilities? How do you commit yourself to a pathway of constant learning and growth?
Your mindset is the key to unlocking a new dimension!
What is Mindset?
It is important to understand the state of your mind before a paradigm shift is possible.
Mindset refers to established sets of values and attitudes that makes up an individual. It frames the way you view yourself. This is why health experts suggest that a strong mindset is needed for a healthy self-esteem. It then follows that your mindset affects your inner dialogue, your intimate beliefs, attitude and behavior.
Since it is glaring that the mindset is a powerful force and influence over how far you can go in life, it is therefore expedient that you change your mindset for the best. A shift in mentality is very much possible, so do not see it as a feat that cannot be achieved.
Mindset Reskilling for Growth
Mindset reskilling is of a necessity if you wish to break the bonds of limitation.
It was Carol Dweck, a researcher at Stanford University that first posit that the mindset comprises of two types – growth and fixed mindset.
The fixed mindset describes that category of people that see their talents and abilities as something carved in stone. They see their failures and shortcoming as a threat to their personality, thereby finding it difficult to work through challenges. They spend a great deal of time taking note of their talents, abilities and intelligence rather than developing them. They have the mentality that talent alone produces success.
On the other end is the growth mindset. This describes people who believe that talent and potentials are not fixed and can be improved upon with passion, deliberate efforts and training.
In simpler words, potentials, talents and abilities are just the starting point. These people welcome failure as an opportunity to learn and develop. This mindset helps them to grow a resilience that is necessary for great feats and accomplishments. It is basically the opposite of the fixed mindset.
Your perspectives and attitude towards life are both conscious and unconscious and can be unlearn, learned, programmed and reprogrammed in several ways.
A simple shift in your mindset can help transform you to be the best version of you.
