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 instead 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.
All this means is that 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 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?
Understanding your mind's state before a paradigm shift is possible and essential.
Mindset refers to established values and attitudes that make up an individual. It frames the way you view yourself. This is why health experts suggest a strong mindset for healthy self-esteem. It then follows that your mindset affects your inner dialogue, personal 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, reasonable that you change your mindset for the best. A shift in mentality is possible.
Mindset reskilling for growth
Mindset reskilling is necessary if you wish to break the bonds of limitation.
Carol Dweck, a researcher at Stanford University, first posits that the mindset comprises two types – growth and fixed.
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 much 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 talent and potential are not fixed and can be improved 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.
The growth mindset helps them grow the resilience necessary to achieve incredible feats and accomplishments. It is the opposite of the fixed mindset.
Your perspectives and attitude toward life are both conscious and unconscious and can be unlearned, learned, programmed, and reprogrammed in several ways.
A simple shift in your mindset can help transform you into the best version of yourself.
