How we think about ourselves and our abilities directly impacts our actions, behaviors, and relationships. A growth mindset means success comes with constant personal development. However, it doesn’t necessarily mean staying positive all the time. Instead, that development comes from consistent learning and perseverance.
A growth mindset is a basis of understanding that where you are and where you want to be requires effort. It doesn’t just happen because all of the pieces fell together. Without a growth mindset, you can find yourself stuck.
When you adapt to a growth mindset, you become more willing to accept challenges, try new things, and build new skills. A growth mindset allows you to manifest something and continuously work towards it because you know that you can do it with development.
Many people shy away from the term growth mindset because it can sound intimidating, but with a few simple steps, you can quickly shift towards one. Here are a few key...
Have you ever found yourself in the space of questioning? You are unsure of what's next, and clarity is lacking. We let these emotions weigh us down and put us in a negative state. This is where the role of gratitude shines through. Gratitude is an emotion that grounds us and raises our vibration out of the negative and into the positive, which can shift our entire mindset. Why? Because we simply sit in a space that allows us to reflect on what we have and all we've been given.
Gratitude can help you get clear by focusing on the positive aspects of your life. When you are grateful, you are more likely to see the good in people and situations, which can help you make better decisions aligned with your spirit. When we are grateful, we are more likely to be happy and have positive outlooks on life. Additionally, gratitude can help us to build strong relationships, as we are more likely to show appreciation for others. We begin to incorporate mindfulness into our routine.

We all experience differently. How we handle stress and pressure is dependent on many different factors. We all have different responses, whether it's fear, anger, sadness, or withdrawal. And, since we all require different approaches, there is never a one-size-fits-all approach to creating stability when we feel we're on a hamster wheel and can't get off.
However, there are some general things that can help people to stay calm during times of uncertainty. I've outlined a list of tangible tools that have worked in my own life when things begin to feel out of control.
Self-care is one of the quickest stress relievers, and it's an easy way to shift my energy. A bath or a long shower is an excellent way to release stress and relax.

Society has guilted us into believing the myth that putting yourself first is selfish. Why, as a society, are we devaluing the importance of putting ourselves first? Taking care of ourselves is fundamental.
We often hear the phrase “you can’t pour from an empty cup,” and while it’s a great quote to refer to, it’s incredibly realistic. If you are running on empty, how can you possibly pour into your family, friends, or job? You can’t. Taking care of yourself puts you in a position to be better for those around you.
