Today we’re going to talk about that big, beautiful brain you have inside your head. Mastering your mindset and controlling how your brain thinks about certain things is fundamental in creating and capturing your goals. Your mind can be trained like any other muscle, and these are the best tips and tricks on how to master your mindset and accomplish your most ambitious goals.
Am I good enough? Do I even provided enough value to know what I’m talking about? These are questions we all deal with. The key thing to remember is that people who accomplish great things believe in themselves. You need to rewrite your story in your brain to believe in yourself.
We live in a world where almost everything we could ever want or need is at our fingertips - we just have to go out and get it. The abundance mindset is important because it keeps the “lack mindset” at bay. And the “lack mindset” can put you in a negative place and prevent you from achieving your goals. Don’t hold on to one opportunity because you think it’s the only one you will get. You need to believe that better opportunities will come your way.
A growth mindset means acting like you’ve never “arrived”. You are continually looking for ways to improve, you always have something to learn, and there’s a big beautiful world out there that you can take advantage of. Don’t let your ego trick you into a “fixed mindset” - the idea that you’ve already arrived and don’t need to learn or do more. You need to become the best version of yourself every day.
I talked about practicing gratitude in episode nine and how it can transform your life. There are neurological shifts that happen in your brain when you practice gratitude. You can change the entire outcome of your day just by being grateful. You can find a way to be thankful about everything in your life. When you practice this mindset, your whole outlook on life changes and your brain rewards your thankfulness by releasing positive chemicals that make you feel happy. Practicing gratitude is an important step in becoming the new you.
It’s important to look at your finances and your income and feel positive about them. One of my favorite affirmations is “money comes to me freely and effortlessly”. Having the mindset of someone who attracts money is so powerful because you’re then going to be able to ask for that raise you want or negotiate a project because you know you’re someone who deserves money.
“Mindset is the thing that you need to have in place to make your wildest dreams come true and to reach your big, hairy, audacious goals.”
