Making the Shift: How to Change Your Mindset

Have you ever been tired of experiencing the same things day in and day out? Does it feel like you are trapped in a prison and you can’t get out? Have you ever wanted things to change around you? You may need to change your mindset. I have learned that the reason we go through what we go through is because we have failed to change our mindset about things. Our thoughts determine our outlook on life. I have heard a few quotes like:

Change your thoughts and you change your world – Norman Vincent Peale

You can’t change the world until you change yourself – Unknown

If you can change your mind, you can change your life – William James

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. – Romans 12:2

The list goes on! This shows that you need to change your mindset in order to change your world view or the things around you.

How to change your mindset

There are many things that you can do to change your mindset. Here are a few things to start with.

Hang around like minded people

I have learned that you are who you hang around. Have you noticed that you tend to pick up personality traits from your friends, family, coworkers, etc.? You pick up these traits because this is what you are exposed to on a daily basis. When we are born, everything we do is a learned trait. We don’t come in this world knowing how to talk, walk, etc. We learn it. How do we learn it? By what we are exposed to. If you want to be married, hang around married people. If you want to be rich, hang around rich people. If you want to stay single, hang around single people. Whatever you are wanting to be or do, expose yourself to it. This will help you change your mindset.

Read daily to change your mindset

This is something that I love to do to change my mindset. I love to read! Growing up, I thought that reading was boring and a waste of time. I learned that picking up a good non-fiction book was one of the best things I have ever done to change my mindset. When you read self-help, personal finance, and business books, you take into you mind things that you usually don’t learn on a daily basis. These books are written by people who have learned things by experience and now they are sharing it with the world. Books have definitely changed my mindset!

Listen to audio to change your mindset

This is something a do every day to change my mindset. Normally, people listen to talk radio, music, gossip, etc during their day. Some of the stuff could be good, some of the stuff could be toxic. I choose to listen to a good audio book, a seminar, or a conference call to get my mind programmed. This can be a good practice for you if you are trying to change your mindset.

If you want to succeed in whatever you do, a change of mindset is needed. I call it, “Making the Shift.” We have grown up being exposed to many things. We have been programmed to have a certain mindset. If you are looking to change your world, change your mind.

Make it a great day!
