Hello there you!
Do you have a growth or a fixed mindset?
When you have a growth mindset, you are always looking at ways to improve yourself, your talents and you learn from your mistakes. You’re a sucker for learning new things. But, you’re not being too hard on yourself during the process either.
I used to be extremely hard on myself and if things didn’t go as planned, oh boy would I spend forever overthinking the situation, beating myself up; and my confidence would plummet. I believed if I wasn’t good at something, then that was it (fixed mindset).
But now, with a growth mindset I reflect on the situation, write in my journal (to process) have my own coaching (to gain clarity), take courses (learning) and practice gratitude daily
I’m constantly learning and brushing up on my skills to become better. Oh don’t get me wrong, there are days where low confidence comes knocking right on that door. I answer it, listen to it, question it; but I don’t spend time dwelling or entertaining those thoughts (not like I used to)
Personal development is huge to me, and part of my daily life. You learn, progress, reflect and grow. Every. Single. Day.

Moving forward when you hit a standstill
At times we might reach a standstill with our goals; therefore struggling to move forward. Am I good enough, what’s the point; and why do I not see instant results? Do these questions sound familiar?
“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving” – Albert Einstein
Remember, results take time – and don’t give up or lose heart. As the saying goes “Rome wasn’t built in a day” and it wasn’t. You are only human, and it’s really ok to have off days.
Get back on that horse, keep going, push through the pain barrier and remember why you started in the first place!
Visualise that end result.
- How can I move forward with my goals?
- Why am I losing confidence and doubting myself in the first place?
- What action do I need to take?
Keep going and don’t give up!
Life is short. And, the more we spend worrying and doubting our capabilities, the more stressed we become and you avoid following your true path in life!
Change always starts with you, when you commit and believe! Keep learning, brush up on your strengths and take your time.
Believe in yourself, work from within and grow – just like that seed waiting to blossom and flourish ❤
What can you do to move forward with your goals?
Thank you for stopping by and keep going!
