Improving Your Mindset
Ok, so you think I have completely lost it. What does watering your plant have to do with your mindset?
I love this quote by Steve Maraboli, “Once your mindset changes, everything on the outside will change along with it.”
Can this really be true?
Yes, while it does take a focused effort and strategy to change your mindset.
Improving Your Mindset may not be a word you are used too, I wasn’t.
I know for myself, several years ago, I didn’t know about mindset nor did I do anything with mindset.
Have you ever had a friend talk about a new restaurant which sounds amazing?
You live in the same town and yet you didn’t even know about the restaurant. You are so fascinated with what your friend shared, you immediately go and seek information on about the restaurant and make a reservation.
That is exactly what occurred to me about five years ago when I heard someone talk about mindset. It interested me and I remember the individual saying, “You need to work harder on your mindset than anything else.” What was this so-called mindset thing? I had to find out.
It allows you to dream and opens to door to the journey.
What is something held in your mind you have wanted to do?
How would you feel if you were able to achieve that thing you have held within your mind?
How would your life be different when you achieved that one thing?
After I heard about this so called ‘mindset’ I had to find more information. One of the first books I read was entitled: Mindset, The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck.
The book opened my mind to understanding how an improved mental state within the mind, can help you achieve. I trust you will secure this book for yourself.
Improving your mindset is something everyone can do, yet many fail to water the plant.
Let me now provide the context to what I mean by watering the plant.
I recently had a conversation with my friend Matthew who knew I had recorded over 100 episodes of a podcast. He suggested that I bring these back, given he found so much value in them.
Start in this week’s newsletter and monthly, I will be featuring the most downloaded episodes through the rest of the year.
This featured episode is entitled: Do You Water Your Plant where I discuss in greater detail how to improve your mindset.
I have one ask of you. Could you share this newsletter on social media by clicking the Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook or other social media icons?
Here is to you watering your plant, so it never becomes dry so you can reach and sustain achievement!
