Can You Use Your Mistakes As Stepping Stones
For many, summertime is the beginning of relaxing and letting go and becoming complacent. Going on vacation to escape a life you don’t love. What if we were to look at our lives, break it down into each day, each moment and instead of looking at your life as a this is what you are stuck with, you shift that and look at it from a different perspective. Not too long ago, I had a very fixed mindset. I thought I’d failed and therefore was a failure – in my marriage, in my business in my life. Little did I know, each of those “failures” was a stepping stone that led me to an ever greater life I had no idea was waiting for me. Relationships I could only have dreamed, now a blissful reality. Multiple thriving businesses with colleagues I love and adore. My health, stronger and actually 15 pounds heavier – all muscle if you please as a Spartan! My new adventure. So in your life, are there experiences, you just aren’t loving? Would you consider them “failures” or “mistakes”? What if you asked the questions – What did this “mis take” teach you? How will you be a better person as a result of it? During the time of my I read two books that had a powerful impact on my mindset. I highly recommend both. The first book I read was Dr. Amens Change Your Brain Change Your Life   The Second was Carolyn Dwecks’ Growth Mindset Professor Dweck tells us: “Believing that your qualities are carved in stone—the fixed mindset—creates an urgency to prove yourself over and over. If you have only a certain amount of intelligence, a certain personality, and a certain moral character—well, then you’d better prove that you have a healthy dose of them. It simply wouldn’t do to look or feel deficient in these most basic characteristics.”   Here’s the growth mindset: “In this mindset, the hand you’re dealt is just the starting point for development. The growth mindset is based on the belief that your basic qualities are things you can cultivate through your efforts. Although people may differ in every which way—in their initial talents and aptitudes, interests, or temperaments—everyone can change and grow through application and experience.” With the growth mindset: “People in the growth mindset don’t just *seek* challenge, they thrive on it.”   In every area of life, whether we categorize it in business, relationships or health, shifting your mindset can completely shift your life. Today, reflect on your “Mis Takes” from the perspective of opportunity to grow. How
