Daily Practical Steps to Making Change and Creating Happiness: #3.
Cultivate a Growth Mindset to Overcome the “Why You can’t” with the “How You can!”
As we begin a new week in this new year, here is another daily practical step to take as we look at overcoming those little blocks that tend to diminish our potential.
It starts with embracing little shifts in our words, thoughts, and actions. Sometimes we truly want to make a change. We truly want to make something happen, but we think we don’t have enough options on “how we can make it”, and so we get limited by “Why we think we can’t make it.”
You, see, when we cultivate more options on how we can make it work, how we can get the change we wish to see, then we can start running out of reasons and excuses of why we think we cannot make it work, and why we think we cannot get the change we have desired.
How Do We Do This?
As you confront your goals or a change you want to make, get your two columns. On one side, state the reason why you think you can’t make it. Identify the major obstacle to achieving your goal.
On the other side, observe, then start thinking out of the box for options to go around the obstacle. If it is something you truly need, you will be amazed as you start to list down the many options leading to “how you can make it happen.”
Don’t just put your potential to death by the only option of “why you can’t” do something. Instead, “wow” your potential to life by digging and refining the many other options leading to the “How you can make it work.” You see, sometimes, NO could just mean “New Opportunity” Or “Next Option.”
It’s about consistency and perseverance in pursuing your dreams, achieving your goals, and overcoming what is holding you back from creating a lasting change. Is like when one door closes, look for another door. When all doors close, look for the widows. And if all winnows are closed, look for a way out through the ceilings.
Achieving goals requires commitment, flexibility, assessment, and resilience. Keep moving. Discover your dream. Develop it and live it.Nabs
Master your thoughts. Master yourself. When we can control what we think, we can control what we do. The road to your self-discipline begins with the mastery of your thoughts.
Don’t put your potential to DEATH by the “I CAN’T Do” choice, but “Wow” your potential do LIFE with the “I CAN Do” Mindset.Nabs
