Growth Mindset

I was in a funky mindset for a long time.

I knew the things that I wanted to do, but I kept second guessing myself and wondering if it was the “right” thing to be doing. 

Should I write this book or that one? Try freelance writing or being a virtual assistant? Read this book or that one or that one? 

I felt slightly overwhelmed by all the choices but I realized that I just needed to pick something and run with it for more than 24 hours.  

So I picked a book idea to finally sit down and write, and I’m writing it. I launched my freelance writing business because it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. And I’ll keep on picking up books to read! 

Today as Von and I played, I had some TED talks on in the background, most of them about mindset. Our lives really do change when we change our mindset. I’m trying to be better at having a growth mindset and I want to teach Von have that too. When we have a growth mindset, challenges don’t stop us, instead we learn from them and keep going. We keep on trying even when we fail or if it’s hard. I want to remember that.  

I also want to remember that when I get up and work instead of sitting on the couch scrolling through Instagram, good things happen.

Taking the time to focus on the good and have a growth mindset will change your life. I know because it’s changing mine.
