WHAT IS MINDSET

August 11, 2021

MINDSET ISN'T CHANGING YOUR MIND, MINDSET IS CHOOSING YOUR MIND.

As an entrepreneur or coach - you're used to working hard.  We live in a culture of hustle, where our hard work and burnout has become our badge of honour.  We equate being busy with being productive, and we most certainly equate productivity with achievement.  But is that really true?

If you've been "hustling" to get clients, get exposure, rushing to hit your next income goal, you might be feeling burnt out.  You might be someone who doesn't like to admit they are burnt out because we live in a culture that teaches us to power through exhaustion.  The thing is, results aren't created by action alone.  Results are created by actions inspired by your thinking.  You don't need to work more or work harder to grow your business - you need to explore your mindset instead.

When I talk about mindset, many people think I'm asking them to "change their mind" or "think positive".  But this is far from the truth.  Mindset isn't about changing your mind, although that's always a great option!  Mindset is actually about intentionally choosing your mind - choosing your thoughts.  When we begin choosing our thoughts, we decide to think intentionally, which impacts how we feel and the results we go on to create.

The only problem is that the thoughts that are creating your results aren't in your awareness.  The thoughts that are creating results in your life or business are in your subconscious mind.  Meaning, they are hidden from your current awareness.  

This is why choosing to think positive feels good, but doesn't help you create the results you want.

This is one of the reasons why entrepenruers hire me, because I am skilled in noticing and reflecting back to you the patterns that are keeping you from having the exact business and life you want.

WE CAN DECIDE TO CHOOSE OUR THOUGHTS AND THINK WITH INTENTION

Think about how you created a business, or decided to get your first job - you conceived the idea in your mind before you did anything else.  Everything we create begins in the mind.  So if you're taking lots of action and hustling, and not creating the results you want - it's because you have yet to explore the thoughts that are driving your actions.

The better way to do business is to explore your mind, to find the thoughts that hold you back, and create ones that serve you on the highest level.  This is how we harness mindset to create results.  This isn't an overnight process.  All of my clients (and all humans) have several unexamined beliefs.  Beliefs are just thoughts that you think over, and over again.

BELIEFS ARE JUST THOUGHTS YOU THINK OVER AND OVER AGAIN

These unexamined beliefs are what's driving your results, and creating your reality.  Coaching is like peeling back layers of beliefs.  There are surface level beliefs, and then there are deeper beliefs that are more chronic.  By uncovering what you believe, and intentionally choosing what you think, you will find yourself taking actions that actually get you the results you want.  This is the work we do when you hire me as your coach.  We look at your beliefs around money, success, your place in the world, your belief about yourself, and help you lean into the most confident version of yourself.

REWIRE YOUR MIND 

Choosing your mind is rewiring your brain to work for, instead of against you.  Neuroplasticity is "the brain's ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life (1)."  When we create intentional thoughts, we rewire your brain by creating new patterns of thinking.  You don't have to keep hustling, or stay stuck in your old patterns.  Rewiring your mind is the best kept business strategy!

Are you ready to level-up your mindset?  Let's talk.  Book a free call to see how I can rewire your mind, and propel you towards the future you're dreaming of.
