Mindset: The New Strength Training
There’s alot of talk around mindset. Why is mindset so important?
Just like strength training is to your muscles i.e. growth, shape, strength and clean eating is to your body i.e. healthy weight, clear mind, good energy, mindset give you that strength and control in your thoughts and beliefs.
I’ll go alittle deeper.
Mindset looks at your thoughts, feelings and beliefs, Your thoughts are electric sending out a signal. Your feelings are magnetic, what you are feeling is drawing in to you experiences- good and bad. And your Beliefs control, dictate, oversee what you think and how/what you feel.
So mindset works in all of these areas- thought, feelings and beliefs. Change your beliefs and your thoughts shift, your feelings become less or non- resistant. You can change your thoughts by seeing new perspectives, leaning in to a new focal point. With that you can shift your feelings about the thing you were charged up about- having reoccurring patterns, negative experiences or not able to reach the results you are working towards. Your feelings shift as you allow acknowledge and celebrate your shift, essentially letting go of the old limitation. You have come into a new mindset around that pattern, topic or experience. This is growth and strengthening your mind to be in alignment with your true self.
Mindset is something to train daily. Whether it be a podcast, book, you tube, seminar, journaling, meditation, something that encourages you to think, feel and believe in the unseen…That which you Desire. Desire is a feeling, turn that on and you are on your way to seeing that which you desire in your heart to be true begin to unfold and manifest.
Just like strength training takes time to build your muscles, resiliency, mindset take proper work, focus and attention.
Mindset is the operating system behind your thoughts feelings and actions. These all lead to habits. What we know about healthy habits is they lead to results plus confidence, goal setting and action which I’ll define as the work plus rest/reset. Mindset is a series of training to find the best version of yourself. Aligned with your own identity and your own beliefs.
Being in community with likeminded people, having support systems which believe and identify what you do adds to your ability to shift your mindset into one that feels true, organic, natural in alignment and excites you.
Mindset is also what separates top elite level athletes with others. These athletes have a belief, a passion, resolve so strong they become unshakeable, unbreakable. Think Tom Brady, Wayne Gretzky and Simone Biles. This is another aspect Mindset holds power.
You have many ways to work and strengthen your Mindset. Let’s get to work, what are you going to begin with?
