Mindset

Mindset: Mindset is the established set of attitudes held by someone. Dr. Carol Dweck suggests that there are two types of mindset, a fixed or growth mindset. She indicates that a fixed mindset is person belief that their abilities, intelligence, talents, or characteristics are fixed.

Growth mindset individuals have the belief that they still have the potential to develop their abilities, talents, intellect, or character which may require hard work and dedication. Some scholars have indicated that the mind consist of our consciousness, emotion, and will. At times when I am experiencing negative emotion and respond from a place of impulsiveness, it may be possible that I am operating from a fixed mindset. Because I am unable to see beyond the circumstances, a wall blocks me from seeing any other possible outcome. When I am operating from a growth mindset, I may still get upset, but I will also see various possible outcomes I can choose to make. I become consciously aware that I have within the power to respond in a positive way, so that I may setup the best opportunity to get a positive response. I can use the power of my mind for my good.

The mind is a very powerful instrument and the tools that are available to human beings are endless. I believe that the mind has unlimited potential, which means it has the unlimited ability to help us accomplish great things. Using the power that is within our minds has the ability to transform our lives. We can find that scientist, psychologist, and philosophers have all attested to this truth. Even more so, God himself made us aware of this truth in the Holy Bible. Paul states in Romans 12:1-3, 1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. 3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Transform your life by the renewing of your mind. The mind is a great predictor of our behaviors. Typically, our behaviors are a reflection of our beliefs and values. If you have grown tired of getting the same results over and over again then it may be time to change. However, changing our belief, values, fears, concerns, or perception can be difficult. When we find ourselves stuck in a difficult place it becomes necessary to seek help. If you are ready to make a change begin working with a coach or another professional to help you get to your next level. Ready, Set, Go.
