5 Characteristics of a Growth Mindset

A growth mindset believes that while people may receive certain tendencies through genetics or upbringing, everything is subject to change with experience and practice. A growth mindset has many positive characteristics. Here are the top five.

 

1.) Believing in Oneself

People with a growth mindset believe in themselves, their abilities, and the things they can do more than those with a fixed mindset. This enhanced self-confidence usually leads to more success in every aspect of life. People with a growth mindset are more likely to try new things and take calculated risks than their counterparts with a fixed mindset.

You’ve decided to work on overcoming your limiting beliefs. That’s great! It’s a good step forward in your personal growth and development. What do you do next? How do you overcome those limiting beliefs so you can move forward?

 

Luckily, you’re not the first person to do this. Many other people have gone down this road and had success. The following steps are a tried and true way of getting past your limiting beliefs.

 

1.) Identify Your Limiting Beliefs

Do you know what your limiting beliefs are? You have to know what your issues are before you can work on overcoming them. If you don’t yet know what they are, you need to sit down and do some self-reflection to identify your limiting beliefs and put them into words. Once you’ve done that, pick one to start working with.

 

2.) Recognize That It’s Just a Belief

Whatever the belief is, you need to acknowledge that it’s just a belief. It’s not a law of nature,...

What is a Limiting Belief?

A limiting belief is something that your unconscious mind believes about yourself, other people, or the world. These beliefs hold you back from accomplishing your goals because you believe them, but guess what? They aren’t objectively true. That’s one of the hallmarks of a limiting belief.

 

Here’s an example. Let’s say you believe you’re bad at math, but you want to go to college and major in something that requires a lot of math. Are you bad at math? Probably not; most people can learn to do basic math well and the majority can also learn to do higher-order math if they apply themselves. But because you believe you’re bad at math, you have trouble mastering the math skills required for your program. This is a classic example of a limiting belief.

 

Other common examples abound. The fear of failure is a common limiting belief that leads people to avoid following their dreams because they don’t want to fail. Many people have the...

3 Money Mindset Influencers to Follow

One of the best ways to change your money mindset and learn new skills is to follow influencers. Whether you need to learn practical skills or be inspired and pumped up that you can and will change your patterns, influencers are key.

Having a cheerleader in your corner is never a bad thing, right?

 

Finding and following a money mindset influencer really isn’t hard. The key is to ask yourself these questions:

 

Q? What sort of personality do I resonate with most?

Q? What is the best way for me to consume new information?

Q? How often do I want to engage with money mindset information?

 

Personality matters- If you are a quiet and shy sort, you may not be influenced by loud and in-your-face influencers. Finding someone who you gel with will make learning new techniques easier and helps them transform the way you think.

 

Finding a means to learn matters- You may love a great podcast, or you might prefer to read a book you hold in your hand so you can mark...

Working Smart Not Hard

When taking a deep dive into the lack money mindset, one of the biggest indicators is the belief that working hard is the key to wealth and success. If this were true, slaves would hold all the riches in the world. Working hard does not guarantee wealth.

 

A wealth mindset sees the value of hard work but doesn’t relegate the work to extended hours or back-breaking feats of strength and endurance. Those with a wealth mindset have adopted the philosophy of working smart, not hard.

 

Working smart, not hard is a concept that allows for hard work as well as delegation, outsourcing, and maximizing resources in such a way that the goals are met with ease. Let’s take a look at an example:

 

Example: Tammy’s Bakery. Tammy is a baker who loves to make her grandmother’s recipes. Tammy started a bakery that serves her mid-sized community. In the beginning, Tammy did all the baking as well as all the marketing, ordering, and sales. Initially, it was fun...

What Money & Success Habits Do You Want to Embrace?

What do you need to work on and what are some good habits that you want to build? You’ll want to make a list, write them down, prioritize them, and then develop a plan to achieve the results that you want.

Subjective experience isn’t really a good way to make money decisions. You also need to read research, data, and information related to your business and industry to find out if your subjective experience relates at all. It’s shocking when it doesn’t relate to the norm, but that happens.

You don’t have to be in the majority of your niche to market to the majority of your niche audience. You just have to accept that you need the research to make smart decisions and that due to what you learned growing up, through education, and life, that wasn’t correct. But that’s OK and you can start making better choices now.

  • Make a List – Quickly write down the money mindset blocker that you have discovered during this challenge. For example,...

Tips for Overcoming a Poverty Mentality

Holding on to a poverty mentality can ruin your chances of building a successful business long term. A business that not only supports you while you’re working, but due to sound financial investments, is going to support you after you stop working and sell the business. Because smart people have an exit plan too.

  • Change Your Environment – When you grow up in a certain class of society, everyone you know tends to have the same ideas. You all use the same slang, wear similar styles of clothing, eat the same foods, and style your hair alike. You may even have the same accents pronouncing or mispronouncing words based on your tradition and history. If you truly want to change how you think, immerse yourself in a new environment.
  • Change Your Language – There is a specific language to poverty. “I can’t afford it,” “We don’t have the money for that,” and “That’s for other people, not us” is all about speaking the...

Fix Your Money Mindset by Studying Successful People

The very best way to change your mindset about anything is to read books, listen to Podcasts, watch YouTube videos, and educate yourself about the topic fully. Read the things you think you disagree with.

Look at their references. Look at the facts from both sides and especially from the side of successful people that you would like to emulate. Understand why you may have been taught something so erroneous and learn the truth from studying successful people that you can feel good emulating.

Read books that feature people you admire who have achieved what you want to achieve and who come from similar or harsher backgrounds. This is going to help you learn the steps they took to overcome their own blocks to finally experience success. Read books about investing, business finance, and more. The more you can surround yourself with financial books that show you the way to success, the better.

Listen to Podcasts about people’s stories from rags to riches. Those are always...

How to Start Learning from Your Money Mistakes

It doesn’t really matter what type of mistake you make in life – there is always a lesson to learn from the mistake. The trick is understanding that there is a lesson, finding the lesson, learning it, and figuring out what can be done differently in the future.

Realize You Made a Mistake

Before you can fix anything, you must name it and claim it. Accept the mistake, know that you made it, and be open about that and honest about that with yourself and others. Making mistakes doesn’t make you weak. Imagine if Thomas Edison had given up after every single mistake. No, instead, realize you made the mistake. That’s the first step to learning from it.

Identify the Cause of the Mistake

When you examine the mistake, it’s easy to step back and see the overview of it, but the best way to not make the mistake again is to examine the mistake to the point where you know the exact moment in time that your thoughts sent you to the wrong decision. If you can find that...
