Our beliefs shape our reality, our actions, our behaviour and our results in life. If we’re not careful we can find ourselves closing the doors to our growth and our fullest potential because we believe some of the fixed mindset thoughts that run through our minds.
Be careful when you hear yourself say or think any version of these and here’s how to shift and change them.
It’s always been done that way
I can do it better on my own
It’s not my fault it’s the (economy, flooded market, it’s the customers, employees, partner, friend, etc)
I don’t know or I don’t know what to do
It is what it is – it’s out of my control
Belief patterns can be strong and difficult to change if we have built up enough evidence to prove them to be true to ourselves.
Each day it’s important that we
- Ask better questions
- Question the beliefs that may hold us back
- Embed new beliefs that serve us
- Search out the evidence to back up those new beliefs.
So where is your mindset fixed? immovable? or in avoidance?
