Mindset – Sounds like a short word which is usually ignored by a majority of the people just because they are still unaware of its importance. Mindset is a set of assumptions, methods, or notations held by a person. Whatever you are today, Happy or Unhappy, Successful or Unsuccessful, Rich or Poor, Fat or slim etc it’s because of your Mindset. Your Decision-making power, your character, Your lifestyle etc are all dependent on your Mindset. So if you don’t have a correct and a positive mindset then, you better change your mindset.
Here are 10 clear Signs to Change your Mindset
1. Your Focus is more towards Negatives
Nothing good can be achieved from a Negative Perspective. When you concentrate more on the negatives, you push your mind into a defensive mode. You start expecting things to go wrong and fail to see the positive side. You need to remember that Negative Perspective always leads to Negative Outcomes while Positive Perspective leads to Positive Outcomes. If you have a habit of searching for negative things but ignoring the positives then you need to change your mindset.
2. You are never satisfied with what you have
You will never be satisfied with what you have until appreciate it. Humans always want more and more, it’s like an unending Greed. You desire a better car, a bigger house, a more expensive phone etc. But remember the time when you didn’t even have what you have today.
3. You are afraid to change
In today’s world Change is Mandatory. You need to understand that the principles which worked for you in the past might no longer be valid now. If you can’t change how you think then you can’t change how you act and if you can’t change how you act then you can’t change your circumstances, you won’t be able to grow and left far behind.
4. You feel angry when your expectations are not met
Our expectations widely influence our mindset as it is what we believe is possible or necessary. If you often find that your expectations are not met then you need to understand that either your expectations are unrealistic or you are not putting enough efforts to fulfill them. Getting angry won’t help instead, you need to find the root cause and find a solution for it.
5. You stay away from challenges
Challenges are very important in developing a growth mindset. You will never know your real potential until you start testing your limits by challenging yourself. Challenges are very valuable because they will force you to stretch your Goals, They will build the mindset needed for long term success.
6. You don’t admit your mistakes
Stop playing the Blame Game, blaming others for all the negatives will never help you grow in life. Instead first take some time to review the problem. Admit the possibility that you might have helped to create the problem. Then accept your fault and learn from it.
7. You don’t have a clear goal
If you don’t have a clear goal in life then it same as you are just sleepwalking through life. Your life will have no direction until you set a clear goal and work accordingly. You will be working hard but you won’t achieve what you deserve. In short, you will be just helping other people achieve their goals.
8. You feel low on self-confidence
If you don’t believe in yourself and your capabilities then it will affect your self-esteem which will further lead to the feeling of worthlessness, helplessness and even hopelessness. If you will dig deeper for its cause then you will find that it’s just because resist due to your fear. Confidence comes then you take action even when you are afraid. Self-confidence will fuel your success while low self-esteem will block it.
9. You envy others for their achievements
If you Envy others for their achievements then it’s just because you have no idea of what it took them to achieve it. You need to understand that they didn’t achieve it just because of mere luck, you are just seeing the end product but not the hard work which was done behind the scene. Envying others won’t help you at all instead, take inspiration and learn from them.
10. You spend more time thinking about the past
Thinking about the events happened in the past is necessary sometimes because you can always draw out lessons from your past experiences which are very essential. But if you will think too much about your past then you will miss a lot of thing and opportunities of the present. The best strategy is to just Think, Analyse, Learn and then Move On. Why stay in the past when you can have a beautiful future ahead.
Just go ahead and change your mindset, I guarantee you will have everything you desire.
