7 Helpful Tips From A Mindset Coach

Your mindset will influence how you think, feel, and behave. Sometimes the only thing holding you back is the way you think. Check out these top tips to help you in developing self-confidence, sticking to personal growth plans, and in other aspects of your life.

1.Accept That You Need To Alter The Way You Think

The first step to succeeding in changing your mindset is to acknowledge that your thinking requires change. You might blame numerous other things for your failures or even console yourself with toxic positivity, but don’t look at the root of your problems – your mindset.

2.Recognize Your Wicked Inner Critic

You know that negative little voice in your head that says things like, “I’m not smart enough,” “I’m not qualified for this,” “She’ll dislike me,” etc. and makes you hesitate and overthink unnecessarily? Once you acknowledge that it exists, you can learn how to let go of fear and inculcate other changes.

3.Give Meditation A Chance

Many people think meditating is difficult and constantly try to fight their thoughts to empty their minds, but mindful meditation is actually about noticing your thoughts when they enter your mind and leave without getting too drawn to them. Just give it 10 minutes of your day; that’s all I’m asking.

4.Understand Why You Want To Change Your Mindset

Changing your mindset requires hard work because if you’ve been thinking a certain way for most of your life, changing formed habits isn’t easy. You can find the motivation to strive towards change by understanding the ‘why’ behind it. Do you want to achieve self-development goals, learn how to let go of guilt, stick to a weight loss plan, or overcome self-esteem issues?

5.Fake It Till You Make It

Have you ever heard of the study that suggested faking a smile can make you happier? We can utilize this same trick with our mindset. Ask yourself what your goal is, and then act like you already have the mindset you require to achieve it. E.g., if your goal is to build muscles, act like you already have the determined mindset of a bodybuilder.

6.Slow & Steady Wins The Race

To explain this, let’s use the example of bodybuilding again. Imagine your goal is to squat 100 kg, and you directly try to squat 50 kg in weight with a bad form when you’re just a beginner; you’re likely to injure yourself and delay achieving your goal. What I’m saying is don’t rush; small steps win big.

7.Flip The Switch

No, I’m not talking about the ‘Humanity Switch’ from ‘The Vampire Diaries’. When you’re feeling upset from negative thoughts, turning off your emotions is not the answer. Switch your negative thoughts with positive thoughts. If you’re looking in the mirror and think you look bad, expel that thought, flip your hair, and make yourself say aloud that you look downright gorgeous! You’ll come to feel it too!
