Mindset and how we think is the secret to a happy and successful life. Mindset controls our thinking, how we perceive situations and circumstances, and controls the outcomes we achieve. I am passionate about helping people achieve more by providing the tools that will help them change forever the way they think.
Growth versus fixed
I’d be the first to admit that I recognise now that I had a fixed mindset for many years and this manifested in many ways, causing a lot of frustration. I do wonder how differently my life would have been if I had known then what I know now, but I’m sure many of us feel like this. A fixed mindset assumes that you have set abilities from birth and these can’t be changed. A growth mindset acknowledges the plasticity of the brain, and understands that skills and abilities can be learnt, developed and improved. Success is only a matter of focus, desire and persistence, rather than luck. Choice, rather than chance, if you will.
My own journey into mindset coaching
My own journey started a few years back when I looked for a business coach to help me develop some skills that I’d identified I needed help with. As a freelancer, it’s important to be proactive about your own development, and create the budget for ongoing training. This coaching over 18 months took me on an interesting journey and I learnt many things. Towards the end of this time, the word ‘mindset’ kept bubbling up in my mind, and I finally did something about it by researching what exactly it was to gain a better understanding.
I then received a random invitation on LinkedIn to a free seminar that would help me gain clarity in my life and help me to achieve all the things that I wanted. My intuition told me to go along, even though in my previous life I was frequently quite busy! Anyway, this seminar changed my life and I decided to invest in my own development to study with this mindset coach. It was one of the best decisions I ever made, and I recognised immediately that mindset and how people think was the therapeutic equivalent of the missing link. I knew then that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my working life – helping people to changing by helping them to change how they think.
What impact can mindset have?
Mindset influences absolutely everything – from our relationships, to how successful we are in our careers, to how much money we have, to how we respond to unexpected situations that arise. Being aware of this fact is half of the battle though, because it enables you to make the changes you need to see the results you want, whether this is a new job, better house, or just being able to gain some peace. Change your mind, change your life – there is no doubt about it.
