The ability to change your mindset is a trait all great leaders in any industry have in common.
They focus on what they want, not what was in front of them.
This is the clearest and most obvious trait that separates the great from the ordinary. In other words, in order to change your mindset, focus on what you want as opposed to the obstacles in front of you.
The brain is not able to distinguish between real and imaginary therefore, you will get what you want as long as you are able to focus on it intensely.
Developing A Growth Mindset
You can develop a growth mindset by following some proven strategies that will get you where you want to be. So, the hardest part can actually be figuring out what it is that you want. When people are 100% sure about where they want to be in terms of growth, they tend to get there very quickly.
It’s when people are conflicted and unsure about what they actually want that the trouble and inconsistencies start to arise.
Therefore, take up some defensive practices and relax to clear the mind. Follow up by doing some creative exploration in order to find out what you want and focus on it until it materializes.
TEDx talks are a favorite with many folks for good reason. The speakers always have good stuff to inspire and share.
