Mindset eats strategy for breakfast
Pardon me? Let me explain this to you.
Reflecting on your current mindset, how many of your professional goals are fear-based? Are you playing the game not to lose and survive (fear) or are you playing the game to win/win (love)?
If you are having a fear-based mindset you are likely to use terms, such as:
- I have problems/issues to fix
- I need/must/have to make a decision
- I need to work harder to succeed
Fear is lack-oriented as well as narrow-minded and moves us away from something. Concerns can ultimately lead to setting the wrong goals.
If you are applying a win-win-based mindset, you are likely to use expressions, such as:
- I 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 the 𝗼𝗽𝗽𝗼𝗿𝘁𝘂𝗻𝗶𝘁𝘆/𝗽𝗼𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗯𝗶𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘆/𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲 to 𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐞
- I have the option to make a decision
- ɪ ᴀᴍ ᴍᴀᴋɪɴɢ ᴘʀᴏɢʀᴇss ᴇᴠᴇʀʏ ᴅᴀʏ
Love is solution-focused and moves us to fulfillment, gratitude for the present moment, and abundance.
To create a strong self-image it is essential to understand which expressions you use to frame your reality. Would you like to play the game to win-win and reframe your mindset by using more positive and empowering vocabulary?
