How to Cultivate a Positive Mindset

Uncategorized Sep 21, 2023

My mantra when meeting new people is, “everyone has a story.”

I know this story consists of moments, memories, and experiences shaping who we are today.

Our story develops and fosters a system of beliefs that influences how we think, feel, act and react in any given situation, and this is a mindset. I have come to believe that our mindset is everything.

Sadly, our “story” has pages, even chapters, that we would like to rip out for many of us. We were caught in the trap of a negative mindset. At least that was me, notice I said, “was.” That’s why I am so passionate about helping you change the trajectory of your story.

Any form of change can seem like a daunting challenge, and it’s a challenge worth taking. The effort to change your mindset is one of the most powerful things you can do, the greatest act of self-care.

First and foremost is awareness. By staying in check with your thoughts and feelings, we better understand ourselves. This awareness creates an opportunity for mindset changes, positive habits becoming second nature, and experiencing true transformation. Hence, changing the trajectory of your story one page at a time.

Here are some tips on creating positive habits toward transforming your mindset.

Be fearless. Don’t allow a challenge to become an obstacle. Remaining fearless in the pursuit of who God created you to be is one of the main characters in your story. Show up and do the hard things.

Learn self-control. Having self-control in every aspect of your life is crucial for your health and well-being. It’s ok to “fall off the wagon” occasionally but get up, dust yourself off and get back on without guilt or delay. And remember, self-control is a fruit of the spirit.

Manage your stress. Stress management is a hard one because stress is an issue everyone seems to have, and few have mastered it. The best stress managers know how and when to decompress and let it go. So, get outside, feel the refreshing air as it fills your lungs, and whatever stressors have caused a storm within in, release them as you exhale and experience the peace and calmness. Nature is a natural healer of the mind, body, and soul. Another way to manage your stress is to unplug. Yes, I said it, unplug. We get lost in our phones or a screen and lose ourselves having a detrimental effect on real-life relationships.

Avoid toxic people. Those that suck the energy out of you are not for you. They may not be bad people, but they may be toxic to you. Surround yourself with those that have a profound impact on your life. They love and accept you right where you are. Life with the right people is always sweeter.

In closing, I am sure all the above are things you already know; knowing and doing are two different things. Knowing the facts doesn’t change lives. Doing those tough things that you know to be true will change your life and story. And your story matters, so how it will end, well, that’s up to you. Make your story count, one you will be proud of and love to tell all because you chose to change your mindset.
