03 Aug Improving your Mindset with PSYCH-K®
Have you ever felt that your mindset is fixed, and you have challenges with making certain changes?
I have found that my mindset is responsible for the outlook on my life.
Research tells us that Growth mindset people view ‘trying’ and ‘failing’ as a learning experience that can lead to growth and change, rather than as a failure or disappointment.
There was this one time when I believed in a fixed mindset. I totally believed that my basic abilities, my talents were just fixed traits. I truly believed that I had a certain amount of growth and willpower and that was that, soon, my goals started to look smart all the time and I have never looked back.
Today, I want to show you how you can have a growth mindset and be open to new things and how your mindset can be happy and healthy.
Simply put, your mindset is your collection of attitudes and responses to things such as
- Expressions of gratitude
- Time management
- How you take care of yourself, and much more.
Our mindset brings all the parts of our life together.
To help ourselves stay healthy and reach the goals we set ourselves, no matter how big or small, we constantly refer to our own individual mindset.
It is important to get this headspace right.
Research by Carol Dweck, professor and researcher from Stanford University, has defined two types of mindset.
Fixed mindset: where we believe our qualities to be inborn, fixed and unchangeable
Growth mindset: where we believe our abilities can be developed and strengthened by commitment and practice.
Your mindset plays a critical role in how you cope with life’s challenges.
A growth mindset shows
- Greater resilience
- Perseverance in the face of setbacks
- Hunger for learning
- Hunger to discover new things
- A need to tackle new challenges
- A desire to keep growing as a person
Carol Dweck argues that the growth mindset will allow a person to live a less stressful and more successful life. To me this sounds an ideal outlook.
In an interview she said:
“In a fixed mindset (people) believe their basic abilities, their talents are just fixed traits. They have a certain amount that’s that, and then their goal becomes to look smart all the time and never look dumb. In a growth mindset they understand that their talents and abilities can be developed through good teaching and persistence. They don’t necessarily think everyone’s the same or anyone can be Einstein, but they believe everyone can get smarter if they work at it”
Mark Hyman, MD puts it this way
“Even with all the knowledge and tools to become healthier, happier individuals it is often our mindset and daily practices that will be the strongest guiding force to carry us through out journey.”
In other words, a growth mindset is essential if you want to move beyond limiting beliefs, created mostly in childhood, and this takes perseverance.
With PSYCH-K®, I can help you move rapidly toward a growth mindset.
I will help you create routines and practices, so you realise your innate talents and abilities, as well as new challenges for growth, and in the process lead a happier, healthier and more successful life.
To make the most of each day, this may include

- Creative arts
- Gratitude practices
My work with PSYCH-K® will give you more personal freedom than you’ve ever had before, an ability to love challenges and to build your self esteem.
