3 Simple Truths You Must Know About Mindsets

To help you better understand (and master) mindsets, here are three simple truths you must know about them.

Mindsets Come in Various Forms

Mindsets come in various shapes and shades. Like fruits, they come in various forms and colors. All mindsets are not equal: some help you, others hinder you; some propel you, others paralyze you; some support your performance, others stop your progress.

For simplicity, let’s separate mindsets in two categories: empowering mindsets and disempowering mindsets. In other words—to continue with the fruits analogy—some are comestible, some are poisonous.

Simply defined, empowering mindsets propel you forward and help you achieve the results you want in life; they nurture your mind, energize your soul, and support you on your journey towards your goals.

Disempowering mindsets pull you back and prevent you from getting great results. They pollute your mind, drain your soul, and sabotage your goals.

As you can imagine, your goal should be to eliminate disempowering mindsets from your life and develop mindsets that help you achieve the results you want.

Mindsets Are Subtle

Because your mindsets have been with you for so long, you may be blind to them. They operate in the background, and you’re unaware of them.

Mindsets are subtle; they sometimes insidiously control an area of your life. Thus, you must be intentional about choosing the mindsets you cultivate in your life: eliminate any harmful mindset and cultivate mindsets that help you progress in the direction you want.

Although mindsets are subtle, they can’t hide; they manifest in your life through your results. If you pay close attention to your life, you’ll see your mindsets in action. In fact, your results don’t lie. They tell you what you need to know about your mindsets. Results reveal mindsets like fruits reveal roots. To gain insight on your mindsets, simply look at your results.

Mindsets breed thoughts and actions, and thus, play a crucial role in your ability to achieve great results. If you’re not getting the results you want in life, deficient mindsets may be holding you back.

Mindsets Are Powerful

Mindsets are powerful. Don’t underestimate their power. Make no mistake: mindsets dictate results. That alone is reason enough to cultivate great results mindsets.

Like a compass, your mindsets guide you through the maze of life. Disempowering mindsets lead you astray; empowering ones help you find your way.

The current state of your life is a direct result of the mindsets you’ve embraced and cultivated. And if you don’t make a change, you’ll continue to get more of the same. Therefore, if you’re dissatisfied with your current results, you must commit to changing your mindsets.

When you make the required efforts to improve your mindsets, you reap the benefits many times over in your life. Time spent growing in this area is time well invested; the return on your investment is high.
