Every now and then many of us will have a self-limiting thought or belief. That is why mindset is so important.
Mindset matters—perhaps more than anything else. The only glass ceiling you’re going to hit is the one you create for yourself. With every request made of you, your mind automatically moves to a “fixed” or “growth” mindset.
People with a fixed mindset believe qualities like intelligence, talent, or networking and social skills are fixed traits that can’t be improved upon.
“I stick to what I know”
“When I am frustrated, I give up”
On the other hand, people with a growth mindset believe their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—that having a brain and talent are just the starting point.
“Failure is an opportunity to grow”
“I can learn to do anything I want”
The importance of having a growth mindset is critical to your success. How you feel about yourself on the inside spreads to how you look and perform on the outside. Set aside time every day to work on yourself: your mindset, self-image, looks, self-talk and your belief in yourself.
Work on your ‘potential’ so that you never hit your own self imposed ‘glass ceiling’.
