Our Problems Are Common

Our mind is tricky. We feel as if we are the only ones with so many unique problems. These are common problems in reality.

Look around and you will find that there many who are going through the same problems as you are.

You may not ease your problems by changing your perspective, but you do find something to be grateful for, and that provides drive and willpower to handle the problems.

Fixed Vs Growth Mindset
  • A fixed or static mindset is a terrible disadvantage as life is a constant flux. Life’s challenges keep on coming and difficult situations and failure are all part of it. Being rigid will only make things worse and add unnecessary complications.
  • A growth mindset has the advantage of being adaptive and trainable, able to build the skills required to handle the obstacles and move ahead in life. A growth mindset learns from failure and makes corrections, instead of being bogged down.

People who lose their jobs can either dust themselves up and move forward in their next amazing adventure, or can sulk at home and not get hired due to their negative mindset. In both cases, the situation is exactly the same, but the perspective makes all the difference.

We cannot let our mind, which has a limited bandwidth of focus and willpower in a day, get tangled in the unimportant and trivial.

A simple hack of taking your focus away from the bad things in life and being grateful for the good things can work wonders to your mind and your life experience. Always try to find the good even in the bad. Create a happiness journal which documents your good life.

IDEAS

  • When you are giving a public talk, you assume that your nervousness is more apparent to others than is actually the case.
  • You overestimate the amount of work that you contributed to a group project.
  • You might believe that your colleagues all share your political beliefs and social values.
  • You might remember yourself as having been the key player in a past event, despite the fact that you only played a relatively minor role in it.

When negative thoughts appear, stop what you are doing and write them down. Once you’ve slowed down the negative momentum of your thoughts, you will be more rational and clear-headed.

Identifying and labeling your thoughts as thoughts by separating them from the facts will help you escape the cycle of negativity and anxiety and move toward a positive new outlook.
