You probably don’t constantly think about how your mindset affects your life. You have always thought this way, either as a result of how you were raised or through other circumstances. Your mindset in fact does affect your life. By changing how you think you can improve your life.
I love this quote from Bob Proctor:
“See yourself living in abundance and you will attract it. It always works, it works every time, with every person.”
Abundance mindset, scarcity mindset, fear mindset, fixed mindset, growth mindset, confident mindset and many others are all different types of mindsets we have. Each unconscious and conscious belief affects our lives every moment.
According to the research of Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck, the power of our beliefs, both conscious and unconscious, and how changing even the simplest of them can have profound impact on nearly every aspect of our lives.
When you change your mindset you become more creative, more artistic, more intelligent, more successful, more athletic, and more fulfilled.
Here are 4 ways changing your mindset to an abundance or growth mindset can change your life:
- You aren’t afraid to step out of your comfort zone.
Changing your mindset to one of growth allows you to see the many different paths available to you in whatever you are seeking-job advancement, creative outlets or something more personal. This allows you to move forward rather than being stuck in the same place.
When you change your mindset, you see there are plenty of resources to go around. Even though there will be competition you will see the opportunities in every aspect of your life.
- You become more comfortable sharing ideas.
When you become comfortable sharing ideas without feeling threatened or intimidated, it leads to better choices, environments and relationships. In addition, you aren’t afraid of being a part of a team and participating in group situations.
- You build better relationships.
Changing your mindset to one of growth helps you build better personal and romantic relationships. You realize people will always have differences. You learn that a relationship involves learning about and from each other, you grow together and develop skills to work well together.
You’ll begin to judge yourself and others less. You won’t have time to waste on judging what others are saying or doing. Instead you’ll be focusing on making progress in your life.
- You accept constructive criticism for what it is.
The change to a growth mindset has you accepting constructive criticism for what it is and using it to grow from. As a result, a growth mindset helps you be more confident because you won’t need validation to reassure you that you’re doing it right.
You can change your mindset. And it will improve your life. Your skills can be cultivated, learned, practiced and grown. You no longer worry about what will happen. Instead you will commit to the process of doing, finishing and learning along the way.
Overall, changing your mindset helps you become a better person, improves your skills and helps you build relationships. You will step out of your comfort zone to go after what you want and believe you will get it.
