The MOST Important Change WE Must Make to ENSURE Long-Term Success?
Mindset First! Your mindset has a total and profound impact on every aspect of your life. It determines how we react, interact, behave, perceive and engage with the world around us. Your mindset shift is vital to ensure a truly successful life. MINDSET IS THE FOUNDATION OF EVERYTHING. We all need a #FutureFit Mindset!
Our mindset is our invisible, all powerful, totally controlling, internal guiding compass of assumptions and beliefs. It controls whether we use our skills, talents, and tools like EQ, AQ, IQ, or leadership. It directly controls our SWIFT Action-Taking abilities. It makes you potentially up to 7x More Valuable in Business.
People with a GO-Mindset tend to be more successful, effective, flexible, agile, and responsive in life, challenges, and relationships. Fixed mindsets tend to be more arrogant, defensive, evading, inflexible, and don’t have as much success. They are often immobilized by challenges, fear failing or not knowing.
It’s important to know that the GO-Mindset has been receiving scientific confirmation from cognitive psychology and from neuroscience. MINDSET is now considered more important than skillset, and toolset, in ENSURING ongoing and sustainable successful achievement. Your GO-Mindset ensures your resourcefulness and success.
People with a GO-Mindset are more willing to tackle challenges head-on. They believe that effort, perseverance, and action, lead to achievement and meaningful success. Growth mindset people have the belief that a person’s qualities and abilities can grow and develop with focus, effort, experience, discipline, and engagement.
Their focus is on learning mastery and competence. Results and outcomes do not determine who they are, nor affect their self-esteem, or what their potential is; Results are an indication of the amount of effort applied.
People with a fixed-mindset, assume accomplishments or ability to contribute, are limited by their attributes. This thinking makes them more averse to challenge, less resilient, and ultimately, less successful. Their goal outcomes require constant validation from others. They live and work though a fear-based perspective.
Perceptions of not being able to achieve an outcome, due to lack of capability, translates into not putting in the required effort, as they believe success is uncertain. This is a foundation of LEARNED-HELPLESSNESS!
This occurs even if they have the EQ, IQ, Sales, Leadership or whatever SKILLSET. Failure also lowers self-esteem, self-confidence, and creates far greater levels of learned-helplessness in fixed mindset people, teams, and companies. This leads to avoidance, aggression, dis-engagement, and non-performance to potentials.
Mindsets Predict Motivation and Achievement
By fostering a courageous, growth-mindset, through positive recognizing and effective praising actions, behaviors, effort, or process, rather than personal ‘attributes’ (e.g. intelligence, creativity, patience, helps others develop a growth-oriented vs a fixed-mindset.
Management style and leadership impact have a strong influence on organisational and team mindsets. GO Mindsets are the new frontiers for high performers. It’s the start of Reversing Learned Helplessness.
Mindset clearly affects our ability to achieve goals and deliver optimal performances. Our mindset type hinders or helps us. This also determines which strategies we will explore and apply to solve problems and challenges.
Which MINDSET Do You Have?
Read the following sentences from Carol Dweck’s Mindset book? Which do you mostly agree or disagree with?
1. Your intelligence is something very basic about you that you can’t change very much
2. You can learn new things, but you can’t really change how intelligent you are
3. No matter how much intelligence you have, you can always change it quite a bit.
4. You can always substantially change how intelligent you are.
5. You are a certain kind of person, and there is not much that can be done to really change that.
6. You can always change basic things about the kind of person you are.
If you tended to agree more with questions, 1, 2 & 5, then you have a fixed mindset.
If you tended to agree more with questions 3, 4 & 6 then you have a growth mindset. There is hope for you!
Research shows Intelligence is Malleable and Mindset Predicts Success.
By adapting Identity, thinking styles, and activities, an increase in neuronal connections in the brain accompanies an increase in IQ-test performance.
It’s wise to always remember…GO helps FLOW.
