One of the hardest things about getting fit is taking the first step. For many…
I am a big believer in personal growth and development. I read, go to events, learn from others…
Everything always comes back to your mindset.
“If you are NOT willing to learn no one can help you.
If you are determined learn, no one can stop you!”
It’s no different when it comes to your health and fitness – mindset is the #1 step in helping you succeed in this area of your life.
There are 2 distinct mindsets and you will have one or the other.
Only one mindset type will lead to success.
THE FIXED-MINDSET says “Are you sure you can do it? Maybe you don’t have the talent.”
THE GROWTH-MINDSET answers, “I’m not sure I can do it now, but I can learn to with time and effort.”
FIXED MINDSET: “What if you fail—you’ll be a failure?”
GROWTH MINDSET: “Most successful people had failures along the way. It’s likely that I’ll have setbacks, too. I will learn from those setbacks.”
FIXED MINDSET: “If you don’t try, you can protect yourself and keep your dignity.”
GROWTH MINDSET: “If I don’t try, I automatically fail, never even giving myself a chance to win.”
As you hit a setback:
FIXED MINDSET: “This would have been a snap if you really had talent.”
GROWTH MINDSET: “That is so wrong. Basketball wasn’t easy for Michael Jordan and science wasn’t easy for Thomas Edison. They had a passion and put in tons of effort.
As you face criticism:
FIXED MINDSET: “It’s not my fault. It was something or someone else’s fault.”
GROWTH MINDSET: “If I don’t take responsibility, I can’t fix it. Let me listen—however painful it is– and learn whatever I can.”
Growth Mindset is a book by Carol Dweck and I highly recommend it. It enlightened me!
