Change your Mindset and Change your Life!

Have you ever heard of the One Degree Shift? No, I’m not talking about the Polar Shift, or even global warming.  I am speaking of making changes in your life.  According to Tony Robbins,

“One degree or one millimeter … of perception change or angle change, means the difference between success and failure, moving on or staying stuck.”

When you look at the things in your life you want to change, or goals in your life you want to reach, so often they seem so far off, so unattainable.  Your current perspective or mindset shows you that where you are today and where you want to be are too far apart.  This is defeating, unmotivating, and most often depressing.  With your aspirations dashed, and the “impossibility” of reaching your dreams, you might even give up completely!

Good News

By changing your Mindset, you can reach those goals, attain that change or lifestyle.

There is a little trick that can mean the difference between success and failure.  You see, we always look at these goals from the “insurmountable” perspective.  When all we need to do is to look at the here and now.

Let me explain.  Imagine a map, and a very large lake on the map.  You are in a boat on that lake, and have been heading toward an island shown on the map that is 15 miles away.  You just realized that the island you have been headed toward is 20 miles to the East from the the island where you really needed to go!    A 20 MILE Mistake!!  That will take all day!  That is too much! Then begins the stomping, the wailing, the crying, the desire to give up, the idea to jump out of the boat, etc.  But wait!  If you change your perspective, and stop looking at the distance between one destination (goal) and the other, and look at it from “here and now” you will see that if you simply change your approach by 1 degree East, you will reach your new goal with very little extra effort.

The 1 Degree Shift is a powerful tool in changing your mindset.  Look at what small thing you can do each day, what small shift, change or action that will take you toward your goal and then implement it. That is doable!  Don’t get lost in the list of things you will have to do in order to reach your goal, don’t look at the obstacles you will have to over come in order to get what you want.  Instead, shift your path by 1 degree and see if all those obstacles are even still in your way!

This is why Mindset Life Coaching is so powerful.  Don’t waste another minute saying you CAN’T, when now you know you CAN!
