How’s Your Mindset?
Each day this week I will be bringing one of the five areas of growth to get and learn from this situation. Today’s topic is Your Mindset….
One of my passions is mindset and Mind Mapping.
For as far back as I can remember, I have been working and on my mindset.
I was reading books on it when I was a high school basketball player.
I always knew that my mind would give me an advantage in any situation.
Note that I am not talking about my intellectual capacity. I am talking about my Mind SET. The things that I believe.
My optimism. My outlook, my inner beliefs and my inner strength.
How did I build those traits? I train them, day in and day out. When I stray too far and don’t do my daily reading or listen to something positive or write my affirmations, then it falls away, and quickly, I’ll add.
Your mindset is a muscle. It must be trained the same way that you train your body.
The people that are struggling the most with this current situation are the ones that have the most fear and that haven’t taken the time to work on their mindset day in and day out.
Now is the perfect time to begin. There are hundreds of free resources from blogs to podcasts to YouTube in which you can begin to sharpen your mind and build that muscle.
I am not just talking about positive thinking, although that’s better than nothing. I am also talking about knowing how your brain works.
When you have a basic understanding of your brain then you are going to be more self-aware and you are going to be able to catch yourself before you go too far and wind up in freeze mode or depressed or anxiety-ridden.
Your inner-dialogue is really what mindset is all about.
Take out an old notebook and begin journaling, getting clear on your current situation. Begin meditating, try it for just 5 minutes.
Write out the vision for your life.
Your mindset is what will get you through the darkest and toughest times in life.
Either keep investing in it or simply begin by doing something about it today.

1- The Fat Shredder is coming! Realistically it’ll probably start at some point in the backside of May and run until the 4th of July weekend. Here’s all you have to do for now: start thinking of your teammates. Each team will have at least a member, non-member and one woman (teams of 3). It’s gonna be epic and just what we all need at that time:)
