Developing A Growth Mindset

SELF-TALK

The conversations you have with yourself are a direct reflection of your mindset. If you are telling yourself “I am not good enough to achieve my dreams”, your thoughts will create your reality and your mindset will hold you back from having the life you want. To upgrade your mindset, change your negative self-talk to an empowerment speech by telling yourself “I can do this” or “I got this”, really works.

GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE

Integrate powerful habits into your day that help your mindset change and reinforce your thinking with action. If you are upgrading from “fixed” to “growth” mindset, schedule time for learning and start noting down your learnings and achievements every day. Journaling, or writing your everyday achievements and learnings might also be a great way for you to start upgrading your mindset.

CREATE NEW HABITS

ASK PEOPLE HELP

It may be harder to implement, but it’s worth it. Make sure you choose people who know you well and care about you enough to do it properly. Ask your nearest and dearest to comment on how your functioning and interactions with people have changed recently.

FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT

This is another way of experimenting with your new belief(s). Even if you don’t fully buy into the new mindset, try acting as if you were. Watch how your confidence and your perception of your capabilities change. Yes, fake it till you make it. Research shows that if you act as if you were competent and confident in an area, will eventually lead to improved competence and confidence.

Special thanks to those who read my blog and give their feedbacks for more improvement.
