In your journey to being filled and powered by the growth mindset one of the keys is simply, if you believe you can achieve. This really does sound very simplistic but the reality is that it really is that simple. You at your core need to have the belief in yourself that you can achieve things. You need to know you have the ability to learn, have the ability to do new tasks, build new and amazing habits. It really all starts with if you believe you can achieve. Then you will!
The opposite of course to this is to remain entrenched with a fixed mindset where you go on thinking that you are basically limited into what you can and can’t learn or achieve. If you’re familiar with this space you know that I think that is bullshit! Sky is the limit my friends, you can be what ever you want to be. You can achieve what ever you like. The first step is to believing that this is achievable.
I know you’re probably thinking what kind of non-sense is this. Well if that’s the case you are already bounded by your limited mindset. If I am being honest this was a massive problem for me for many years. In fact for nearly 40 years. To be honest I am super glad that I have finally realised that I have to to believe it before I can indeed achieve it.
How do you get to this real belief and get to the growth mindset?
Look there is no formula into getting yourself to the growth mindset. While I have set out on a path of learning myself and personal development this has allowed me to foster attributes of the growth mindset. This has allowed me to push past my limitations. If you would like some guidance on how to get here, I would suggest you read over the growth mindset training I have put together.
This will allow for you to get a better understanding of what the growth mindset is and steps you can take to develop a growth mindset. Typically the first step in getting to a place where you believe you can achieve is to go through a mindset reset. This will allow you to be prepared and be in the position to go through retraining your brain to be powered by the power of growth and develop into the person you deserve to be.
The power of beliefs is undeniable. Leverage it to improve your life!
The weirdest part about all of this is you probably have never realised that you yourself have the power to decide what you believe. You and only you are the master of all your beliefs. Once you starting getting past the idea of caring what people think you will be well on your way. Remember it’s not your family, its not your friends and most of all its not any body out in the main stream media that decides what you believe. They are all full of opinions and have nothing to do with you. You and only you have the power to think “if you believe you can achieve”.
In life we go through experiencing and observing things. Once we do this we then create beliefs about things. These beliefs are then what create realities within our minds. Just as you experience life you create these beliefs about yourself. You may think your stupid, but why? Because someone said. Who cares what they think. You may not know a lot of things, but heck you can learn whatever you want. You can train and study anything. The world is your oyster, you just need to to believe that you can achieve.
In life there are no outcomes without actions. Nothing happens just because it happens. Everything is a result of something being done. Everything in life comes down to whether or not you believe you can or you can’t. If you believe you can’t you will remain who you are and not grow into the individual you want. But if you do, you have to truly believe that you can and you want to.
It’s up to you. There’s believing something and then there’s actually belief! I’ll give you an example. For me I always wanted to have a nice car, a beautiful house in a nice area and a loving family. About 6 years ago, my life was terrible. I lost my job, I lost my best friend. I was in the dumps. But I realised that this was not a permanent thing I could turn my life life around. So I did. In that time I started my own business, I returned to work and tripled my income in the space of 3 years. I now have all the things I wanted because I believed I could. I believed I deserved it.
But that’s not the end. I want to achieve so much more. I am now at a crossroads, where I left a job which pays me really well. To a job that doesn’t pay as much but allows me to grow and develop into something I believe will catapult me to where I need to be. I know I can deliver what I need in life as I truly believe that I can achieve.
Do you believe you can achieve?
If not, why not?
You’ve only got one chance on this planet, it usually goes for 85 years or so. Stop wasting time and feeling sorry for yourself. Stop waiting for the “perfect time” there’s never the perfect time. Start believing. Start respecting yourself and know that you can achieve.
You’ve got nothing to lose. Believe you can and then take massive action friend!
