What is your Mindset?

In Coaching, Inspiration, motivation, Personal Development on January 24, 2012 at 7:42 pm

First of all, what is a mindset?  The dictionary defines mindset as:

mind·set or mind-set  (mndst)   n.

1. A habitual or fixed mental attitude or disposition that predetermines a person’s responses to and interpretations of situations.
2. An inclination or a habit.
So we know that if you have a fixed way of looking at something, like your life, your future, your weight, your job, chances are you will always look at it that way, unless you CHANGE YOUR MINDSET.
So what does that look like?  Take for example, a woman who has held the same job for 15 years, has not received promotions, and has not sought out new opportunities.  What do you think her Mindset is about her career, her ability to succeed in the field of  her choice, and even her view of her future career path?  What do you think her “interpretation” of her “situation” would be?  Do you think she is optimistic about her chances of promotion, or success in finding a better job?  What will need to happen if she is to change that?
What about the mindset of a person who’s parents couldn’t afford to travel, didn’t go on family vacations, and spoke negatively about those that did?  What is their “predetermined” “response” to taking long leisurely, relaxing vacations? How would this person achieve a life goal of traveling through Europe before they are 50?  What will they need to overcome?
So what about you?  What is your predetermined response to things you want to do, but feel you can’t, shouldn’t, won’t?  What is your Mindset?
Figuring out what your mindset is, is the first step in changing it, in order to reach the goals you really want in your life.
