Passive Mindset

A passive mindset translates into the attitude or the assumption that life just happens to you accidentally and you are not responsible for it in any way.

People with a passive mindset use language that shifts the blame on other people, events and circumstances. They also do self-pity by asking why bad things always happen to them.

A Form Of Self-Hypnosis

Some of the phrases that are used by people with a passive mindset:

  • "It’s not my fault that I was late, Traffic was bad."
  • "I can’t come, it’s too hot."

Using this type of language acts as a form of self-hypnosis and convinces the person with a passive mindset that nothing is their responsibility.

Active Mindset

People with an active mindset are in control and their attitude has ownership. They own their failures and appear responsible and truthful. They say it like it is and the language they use provides a sense of respect and humility.

  • “I should have planned for traffic, will take care next time!”
  • “I got fired as I wasn’t the best, but I learned a lot from this.”

People with active mindsets choose their life’s direction and own the process.

Feeling busy

We live in a distracting world, and it’s not getting any better. We are constantly bombarded with new information.

It's natural to think we need more discipline or willpower to resist the ons...

Acceptance of distracting technology

Technology companies work hard to create products that bring convenience and delight. In turn, they benefit when we use these technologies more.

Our willing acceptance of distracting apps and our culture of constant busyness shows how normal these things have become. So, feeling busy and distracted is not your fault. However, you can take up the responsibility to change the defaults of distraction and busyness.

Remove distracting apps

The smartphone is the simplest and most effective way to reclaim your time and attention.

In contrast to hacks like disabling notifications, removing apps cuts the distraction where it starts. The app is still available, and we can still use it and check email and read the news, but we can do it on our terms.

Defining "Success"

“Success” isn’t just having lots of money. 

Success is continuously improving who you are, how you live, how you serve, and how you relate.

Lose an hour in the morning, and you will be all day hunting for it.

Putting "first things" first

Start the day with your #1 priority.

Getting up early isn’t enough. You need to put first things first. When you put your top priorities first, then you ensure they make it into the bucket of your day. After your main priorities have been completed, the rest will fill the gaps.

The victim mindset

It happens when we focus on how you believe other people are doing you wrong or what you think they are doing to cause you pain. It means focusing on other people's flaws and how you feel mistreated.
This fuels feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and despair.

Looking in the right direction

How someone else treats you is outside your control.
But noticing who or what you are exposing yourself to is within your control. And so you should focus on that.
