Welcome to this blog about the Power of Mindset.
Why do a blog about Mindset? In the last 20 years of my personal leadership consulting, an individual’s mindset has consistently been a critical aspect of their success. Often they had the skill set needed for success yet they were not applying what they knew or they behaved in such a way that they sabotaged their progress.
I view mindset as the current frontier of ensuring success. Sure it has been referenced, discussed and approached in various ways over the years. However, what I have observed is that it is often reported that changing a mindset is a hard and difficult process. I agree IF you continue to approach changing a mindset through traditional methods. There are current processes that allow for simple, quick and sustainable change.
The starting point is to become aware that every opinion or viewpoint you have can be traced back to what your mindset is about that topic, concept or situation. Does that make your mindset correct and a different one incorrect? No, the basis for learning and growing is to realize that two opposing mindsets can learn from each other. By exploring assumptions, foundational beliefs, and personal experiences, often the differences are exposed as being less than initially perceived.
Over the course of this blog, we will explore various aspects of Mindset and it’s impact on you, your life, your community as well as globally. Stay tuned for more.
