Mindset - why it matters

Mindset is defined as the attitudes and habits that a person has.  Mindset is often based on the previous experiences of the person.  It will impact how a person thinks about situations and will influence how the person responds to the situation.  A person's beliefs, emotions and thoughts based on their mindset can positively contribute to or negatively detract from the following:

A positive mindset impacts a person's personal growth.  Challenges are embraced with the belief in the ability to learn from both successes and set-backs.  Experiencing difficulties can lead to a lack of confidence and negatively impact your attitude towards learning and your work ethic. This can lead to more difficulties in achieving your goals. Break the cycle! Create a positive balance of mindset and achievement. Rise above the struggle. Aim for your maximum well-being.  Grow through it!

Grow Through It!

I can share a personal story with you.  When I realized that I had to create a website for my business, I had a bit of a panic and the idea scared me.  I tend to shy away from anything to do with technology.  I had low self-esteem about my abilities.  In the past, I was quite unsuccessful with technology.  My mindset was that "I don't know anything about websites, I don't know about technology and I have no idea how to build a website.  I can't do it."  Full stop - end of conversation.  The more I thought about it, the more I thought "Hmm, maybe I can do it!".  I had to change my mindset about my ability to build a website.  I began to have the confidence that perhaps I could do this!  I knew I would require the correct tools to do so.  This would begin with research of the items I would need to build my own website - domains, examples of website, online support etc.  I asked my students for advice and they game me some options of online help.  Most of them believed in me and thought that I could do it.  I started slow.  I had to be patient as it took quite a lot of my time.  I had to persevere, even when I wanted to give up.  As I continued, my confidence and skill started to increase.  I am quite proud at my success of building a website.  

                                It may not be the best website in the world, but it is indeed my best website. 

As I worked on my website, I kept thinking about a story that I used to read to my children.  There was no way of going around my obstacle.  I had to face it and go threw it.
