Mindset

I’m a strong believer in the fact that success and happiness are all about mindset. Your mindset and belief system affect everything in your life, from what you think and feel to how you act and react to the world around you.

To achieve your goals, your mindset needs to match your aspirations. If you want to achieve true personal transformation and go after big dreams, these are the seven crucial mindset shifts you need.

1. Doing vs. Thinking

The distance between your goals and your reality is called action.

Get clear on what you want. Set a goal. Make a plan to achieve it. It’s important to have direction and know what you’re doing.

Then, go out and actually

2. Growth vs. Fixed

A growth mindset comes from the belief that your abilities can be developed through effort.

Switch your thinking from “I am not good at this!” (fixed mindset) to “I can’t do it yet, but I can learn how to do it!” (growth mindset).

Growth mindset

3. Can vs. Can’t

Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.

Sounds cliché, but it’s the hard truth. Believing that you can in fact achieve your dreams is the first step to making them come true.

When setting a goal, make it a habit to 10x your goal. For example: acquire 10 clients → acquire 100 clients or launch website in 10 months → launch website in one month.

Operating at the 10x mindset has two major benefits.

  • First, it forces you to level up your methods and think of outside-the-box strategies. This will make it a lot easier to achieve your 1x goal.
  • Second, thinking 10x trains your brain to think big. When you explore the option...

5. Abundance vs. Lack

Abundance flows into my life easily and with grace.

6. Journey vs. Destination

Happiness is found on the way, not at the end of the road.

Going after your dreams is f*cking hard. It’ll take way longer than expected, and it’ll be really, really tough. If you keep staring at the end-goal and comparing where you’re at right now, you’ll find it...

7. Limitless vs. Limited
