Blog: Mindset

Hello

I hope you are all well

I am writing this from a sun lounger by the pool, having a very relaxing pool day. Exactly what I needed after recent events in my life.

I have been thinking about… thinking recently! I refer to the way we think, and sometimes the words, labels and mindsets we hold. Sometimes these labels can be negative.

Let me give you an example:

I have to go to work.

This has a negative meaning and can affect how we feel. Hard to feel positive with a thought like that. Finding ways to modify thoughts like this can really help us feel gratitude and some positivity.

Instead of I have to go to work try, I get to go to work.

A simple shift in the though there pushes you in a more positive place. This is not an easy thing to do, it takes time and practice, but it could have a profoundly positive impact on your life.

Many people also have a mind set of fear when it comes to being alone or doing things individually.

This is something I have had to overcome in recent years. I solo travel, even overseas. I used to constantly worry about the perception of being alone.

I combated this negativity with a few simple words:

I am not alone, I am by myself.

Minor tweaks to how we think can be life changing.

You can start simply by writing it down. Take something small , write it down then try and edit the words to a positive.

I have to get up today becomes I get to get up today.

This shows some positivity: I am able to get up, I am a alive and can start a day.

None of this is easy, but might be a turning point for some one.
