Spoiler alert- sometimes a not-so-great mindset gets the best of me.
But in case you haven't noticed, working towards changing that is referred to as a mindset practice.
They call it a practice for a reason!
...because it isn't always easy and doesn't always come natural.
...because we've trained our brains to think "realistic" to avoid too much risk or change.
...because we have been in a state of thinking negatively for so long.
If you are interested in creating a more positive mindset (and are willing to put practice in!) here are some Do's and Don'ts:
Start with patience and tolerance for yourself.
Create small, achievable goals that will add up to change.
Start a journal or reach out for support from like-minded people.
Expect positive mindset changes to come effortlessly. Your brain has been trained without that in place and needs time to unlearn unhelpful thinking patterns.
Expect to never have a bad day ever again (see above- patience and tolerance for yourself!).
Confuse speed bumps for dead-end roads. Many goals worth achieving are not simple, straight lined, or easy. But they are always worth it.
I invite you to work at what you want. Make a conscious goal to practice gratitude. On the bad days, remember why you started (hint- journal topic!).
