It might seem as if several crooked balls have been thrown at you, any single of which could stop a person on its trail.
You may have experienced an almost total loss of income because your job was reduced or eliminated or you were fired through no fault of your own.
You may have had to completely invent your business to find new ways to provide customer service. I talked to a woman who deals with dog grooming. She created a safe environment for dog care during the recent abolition of health. Instead of several dog groomers working in the open room, she divided the room into 4 closed parts. Dogs that were admitted were placed at least 10 minutes apart. A dog groomer wearing a mask came to the car waiting at the front door. The dog handler took the dog to a closed area, where it was groomed and returned to the owner at a certain time.
You may be isolated from friends and loved ones and looking for new ways to stay connected. With dozens of ways to stay connected, it sounds weird that isolation is an issue. However, what is a quarantine issue is a change in freedom of choice. Therefore, the loss of freedom of choice encourages people to choose a sense of isolation as a way of coping as a mechanism.
Despite the unforeseen and unprecedented challenges that man faces in life, there may seem to be no end.
Some people stand up well. They’re adjusting to the revised schedule and the way things are done … and they’re making progress.
What is their secret?
And what is important …
How do you use this secret to make the dreams you love come true in the months and years ahead – no matter what surprises await around the corner?
Discover the secret – 5 steps to turn a fixed way of thinking into a way of thinking about growth
1. Do you think about what you “have to do” instead of what you will “achieve”.
A fixed negative way of thinking is based on your inability to change. He sees your qualities as fixed and unchanging. You’ve heard people (maybe even themselves) say something like “I’m a pessimist, I can’t help myself”. Well, guess what-you can! Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck says that by developing a way of thinking – believing that your traits are changeable through deliberate practice, they are set for success.
2: Learn to hear your fixed way of thinking “self-talk”.
When you decide on a new challenge, what is your self-talk? You can say, “Are you sure you can do that?” or “What if you fail?” “What will you do if you fail?”
If you run into an obstacle, you might hear, “I wish you had talent” or “I told you it was too risky.” Why me? “
Every life and business coach knows about it internal self-talker saboteur. It’s a self-talk that undermines so much of what we do; an internal critic who evaluates you and your work.
The inner saboteur of self-talk is a ‘fixed way of thinking’.
Once you learn that you have a fixed mindset, you can anticipate it saboteur for self-talk in advance. Then just listen. If you hear your saboteur talking, you can say, “Cancel.” “Stop.”
3: Recognize that you have a choice.
You can interpret self-talk in two different ways: Challenges, failures, and criticism can be a sign that you have a fixed talent and ability.
Or, they can be a sign that you need to challenge yourself, step up your efforts, change strategies, and keep evolving.
The first is obviously a fixed way of thinking; the latter is growth-oriented.
The key here is to move from the framework of judgment (fixed) to the arena of growth.
4: Talk to your negative inner critic with a voice thinking about growth.
As you approach the challenge:
A fixed negative mindset says “Are you sure you can do this? Maybe you don’t have the talent.”
The way of thinking about growth responds: “I’m not sure I can do it now, but I know I can learn with time and effort.”
Fixed mindset: “What if you fail – you will fail”
Way of thinking about growth: “The most successful people have had failures along the way.”
How to achieve failure:
Fixed negative mindset: “This would be great if you really had talent.”
Thinking about growth: “It’s so wrong. Basketball wasn’t easy for Michael Jordan, and science wasn’t easy for Thomas Edison. They had passion and they put in the effort.
As you face criticism:
Fixed negative way of thinking: “It’s not my fault. Something was wrong or someone else is to blame.”
The way of thinking about growth: “When I take responsibility, I can fix it. Let me listen – no matter how painful – and learn what I can do.”
Writing dialogue in a magazine is very efficient. There is something in writing that makes it easier to connect with the inner voice.
In addition, it provides a recording of conversations. You can then review the dialog later and identify common patterns.
5: Take action thinking about growth.
Once you hear the negative self-talk of fixed thinking and respond to it with the self-talk of growth thinking, then determine how to take the necessary actions that will lead to growth.
These can include accepting a new challenge, learning from failure, persevering without exception, tailoring your actions based on feedback, and so on.
No matter what challenges you face – relationship problems, lack of money, failure to work, health challenges …
Your success or failure lies in your beliefs and thoughts.
Some people have a way of thinking that traps them because of their self-perceptions or indoctrinated and conditioned limitations.
Other people have a way of thinking that helps them deftly cope with challenges and shake off failures or failures.
“The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the level of thinking that created them.” Einstein
Einstein reminds us that if a clear and easy solution to any problem you face is not obvious, you need to change the frequency of your thinking.
In the final analysis, by adopting a way of thinking about growth, opportunities for more learning and success will become more visible, accessible, and ultimately more useful.
While this may not be completely natural at first, anyone can begin to adopt a way of thinking about growing and creating a meaningful and fulfilled life by taking consistent action.
You can make the decision to start a life of healthy growth today, when you begin to expand your awareness and notice any fixed mindset and / or mentality of scarcity that may arise.
By using the actions mentioned above, you will constantly travel towards success.
