Want, Create and possibility are my favorite words. They free up energy, lift moods and create change.
Unfortunately, if you’re someone trying (unsuccessfully) to make changes, in any area of your life, your mind might not be your strongest ally. Mindset can propel you forward and it can also be your biggest stumbling block.
Most approaches to overeating don’t address mindset, and that’s a problem.
As a NLP Life Coach, & Hypnotherapist, thoughts and feelings are usually the first place I look if someone is stuck, and today, I want to challenge you to do the same.
Stop for a moment and consider how you’ve been talking to yourself today. What’s the dialogue that runs in your head sounding like so far?
Are they words of possibility? Is the self-talk positive, encouraging, motivating?
Or are you calling yourself names, judging yourself, talking to yourself in a way that you’d never speak to anyone, or blaming your situation on all the things that “make life impossible”?
This is a key part of mindset and the more you are aware of it, the more successful you can be.
There’s something called a growth mindset. It involves approaching challenges and situations from a belief that you can grow and change, that you can effect a positive outcome. That problems or “failures” aren’t signs that you are a failure, instead they’re opportunities to grow and to learn more about how to succeed.
There is a way of approaching even the worst failure and finding opportunity and motivation for growth.
The opposite of a growth mindset is a fixed mindset. It’s a belief that you are stuck and powerless against circumstances beyond your control. This is where I see so many smart, busy women stuck and feeling at the mercy of overwhelm, overload, and overeating.
Feeling like there’s not enough energy or time or motivation. Overloaded calender’s and to do lists!
Life is too short and you’re working too hard.
I challenge you to pick a place where you feel stuck and take one step to shift into a growth mindset.
Find one place where you have been feeling stuck or frustrated with yourself and consider it from a different perspective. Be curious about what you can learn. Why are you getting stuck? What is throwing you off track? What change or new approach might help with this situation? What if you could …..
What are you needing that would help you lean into growth instead of throwing up your hands in frustration?
These are big questions, and they can be game changers. Adopting a growth mindset means learning about what we don’t know and being open to learning how to approach things differently.
Today, be attentive to your mindset. It can make all the difference.
