We let our knowledge and experiences of the past project into our future, by making concrete predictions that this or that cannot happen due to what happened in the past.
But life is constantly changing, flowing like a river, and does not follow past patterns.
This is a mental state where, as a result of a certain bad experience, we believe that we can’t do anything about a certain problem.
We can start to feel helpless when we see people fail in a certain plan, and this could start acting as a negative motivation in our minds.
Move out of the fixed mindset, where you are stuck in inaction, towards a growth mindset.
In a growth mindset, you see obstacles as steps to success and everything seems to have a solution.
