We had our first weekend of yoga teacher training (YTT) this past weekend, and it is always so exciting and inspiring to be part of. The other thing I’ve been super inspired by and having serious FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) is all of my adult friends who are going back to school to get their Master’s Degrees or doing other skill based programs like YTT.
When it comes to mindfulness, the idea of continuing to grow your knowledge and skillset is a huge part of shaping your life with purpose.
If you truly believe “you don’t have time,” “it won’t get any better,” “it’s too hard,” or “there are no other options,” you are in fact right. This type of thinking is called a “FIXED MINDSET.” This type of thinking keeps you stuck and focused in failure, believing you’ve maxed out your skills, talents, and strengths.
If you give yourself grace and abundance, even through failure, and shift your thinking to things like “I don’t have to do it perfect, I just need to keep trying” or “this is hard, but i’m giving myself grace to not get it right every time.” A “GROWTH MINDSET” boosts resilience, motivation, and performance. Think about it, you’re more likely to keep going and keep trying if you actually believe you can.
Make a courageous choice to be willing to move out of your comfort zone all while giving yourself grace to trip, fall, and make the choice to create an opportunity to keep moving forward.
This week notice when you’re in a fixed vs growth mindset and see if you can just keep practicing mindfulness and self-awareness. Your mind will take you exactly where you want to go.
