What is a Mindset and How Do you Change it.

A Mindset is the collection of attitudes and beliefs we have about ourselves. It is our view of ourselves and the world around us. Our mindset can be positive or negative and can be fixed or growth-oriented. A fixed mindset is one where we believe that our abilities and talents are set in stone. We are born with a certain amount of intelligence and power, and there is nothing we can do to change it.

In other words, a fixed mindset is a belief that your abilities and success are predetermined. This way of thinking can limit your potential and lead to a feeling of helplessness. On the other hand, a growth mindset is a belief that you can improve your skills and abilities with effort and practice. This mindset leads to a love of learning and greater control over your life.


Which mindset do you have? If you have a fixed mindset, don’t worry – it’s not too late to change!  No one has a set mindet. You do have a choice on how to look at life. With some effort, you can adopt a growth mindset and open yourself up to new possibilities.


How do you change your mindset?  Be self-aware and know that sometimes even the kindest people have toxic behavior. Know that an evil person never thinks about change, so you are not a bad person if you have evil thoughts. Seek out workbooks or classes.  Reach out to people who love you and can help you achieve your new life.  Whatever you decide, follow through, and you will see results.
