4 Tips on Shifting to Positive Mindset

Are you rigid or fixed in your mindset that seems to make you inflexible? Maybe it is your mindset.

Definition of Mindset

A mindset is a fixed mental attitude. A mindset is a mental habit that is comfortable or uncomfortable. A mindset can be flexible or rigid toward yourself or others. 

Hanging on to old mindset creates stress, shame, anxiety, blame, bitterness, negativity, fear, and rigidness. Over time a mindset results in poor physical health as well as a decrease in our mental and emotional health and performance. A mindset simply is a deep seated attitude based on old perceptions, beliefs or prejudges that were told, taught or forced on us. One thing clear is that a mind-set is generally another person's expectations or bias. Growing up in my generation, it was taught to take others mindsets, such as parents, teachers, coaches, policemen, etc., with blind faith. Never to ask questions. Functioning in life under another person's mindset does not work and causes deep feelings of unhappiness, disappointment and a feeling of being trapped.

Tips on Shifting to Positive Mindset

1. Stop, slowdown and connect with the moment

2. Focus and take in what the flavor of your mindset is

3. Reclaim your personal authority by forming a new positive mindset  to replace the negative one on the same subject.

4. Create a new belief to support and validate your newly formed mindset.

Follow the tips above and you can create and attain command over your unproductive mindsets.
