In this blog article, we will explore three practical mindset shifts you can implement immediately to overcome the barriers that stand in your way.

Before we delve into these powerful mindset shifts, let us take a moment to reflect on the progress you have made this year. As we approach the midpoint of 2023, it matters to assess your progress and determine if you are on track with the SMART goals you established at the start of the year.

Ask yourself:

  • Are you winning?
  • Are you making notable progress?
  • Have you measured your results so far?
  • Have you kept the promises you made to yourself?

Now, let us embark on this transformative journey together.

Our first mindset shift involves doing things differently. It is about identifying actions that no longer serve you and actively striving to change them.

For instance, as a creative individual, I used to have my attention scattered across various interests. However, this year, I decided to heighten my focus and concentrate on just one thing at a time. By doing so, I have experienced a remarkable sense of completion and accomplishment, effortlessly ticking off each step I set. 

As Jack Canfield wisely says: "Success isn't magic or hocus-pocus - it's simply learning how to focus."

Our second mindset shift is all about changing your attitude. In our current society of instant gratification, cultivating patience is key. 

I reintroduced patience as my motto this year. It has led to greater flow and reduced tension in my life. Remember, when you set an intention, allow space for its realization without added pressure. Let your intention be a product of attention without tension, fostering constant flow and progress.

The third mindset shift focuses on valuing and increasing your integrity. Integrity entails being honest with yourself and others and aligning your actions with your moral principles. Should you commit to something that will improve the quality of your life, follow through with it. Measure your results to gauge your level of integrity with your yearly goals.

For me, committing to excellence has been my guiding principle this year. I aspire to complete anything I start, whether it is a book, audiobook, or creative endeavour. Being a good finisher can be challenging for many creative individuals, but it is crucial for your growth.

In her book titled "The Way Of Integrity,” Martha Beck says beautifully that to be in integrity means to be one thing, whole and undivided.

By adopting these three mindset shifts, you will witness tangible results in your life. Steady progress and success will become your companions.

Remember the wise words of Jim Rohn: "Success leaves clues." Jim Rohn suggests that we should learn from both successful and unsuccessful individuals gaining insights into what to do and what not to do. Failure serves as feedback, guiding you to make necessary changes and get back on track.

The more you nurture a growth and success mindset, the higher your chances of achieving your dreams. 

I hope you found this article insightful and inspiring.
