Change your mind and change your life. In order to be successful, you have to think like successful people do, and how do successful people think? They have the Growth Mindset.
So, now that you have learnt to form a new mindset which is the growth mindset, you have to grow it consistently if you want it to stick.
Persistence is what gets you there but it is Consistency that will keep you there or help you keep it.Your mind is like a garden, if you don’t nurture it with the right things, it will shrivel away and weeds will grow instead of beautiful flowers. You have to know what tools to use in tending to the beautiful garden which is your mind.
Here are 3 steps to Grow your Mindset from the book by Edirin Edewor- You and Your Mindset.
1. Give time to learning Everyday– In this journey of growth, Personal Development is a must. The more you know, the better you become.Apply yourself to reading a few pages of a good book everyday.Have a mentor you look up to, ask questions, be curious about life, learn about anything and everything.Your mind expands as you learn.
2. Taking Action – Another way you can grow your mindset is by Taking Action. If it is to be, it is up to you.If you want something bad enough, you will figure out how to get it.
It’s never enough to know, you have to take action towards what you know and have learnt.Knowledge is not power.Knowledge is only potential power…it is the application of knowledge that leads to power.
3. Shift from being a Short-Term thinker to a Long-Term Doer – It is exciting to live for the moment, but always think about the future.We seek results immediately and that leads us to wanting instant gratification.
On the journey to success, the result is important but nothing compared to what you become in that journey.Jim Rohn says “Success is what you attract by the person you become”. Therefore, success is not a matter of having but a matter of “Being”. The problem/misconception we have about success is we think it is a destination. Success is not a destination but a journey.
Success leaves clues Follow the successful people and you will be successful.Successful people have built an unshakable Growth mindset and that is the HALLMARK of their success
