Practicing the power of a positive mindset.
My name is Mauro Gamba. I am a life and spiritual coach, and I would like to share with you some insights on the power of Mindset. To begin, there are two basic types of mindsets that shape our lives. They are the Fixed Mindset and Growth Mindset.
In a Fixed Mindset, a person believes that certain qualities, i.e. intelligence, talent and abilities, are unique to the person and are “fixed,” or not able to change.
In a Growth Mindset, a person believes that certain qualities like intelligence, talent, and other abilities, can grow and be developed through studies, effort, and enlightenment.
We are what we think.
Approximately 80-90% of our thoughts are the same from day-to-day, and, our thoughts are the basis of our reality. This means that only 10-20% of our daily thoughts are different and unique. Therefore, 80-90% of our reality is what we’ve been living. The same thoughts lead you to the same options, which in turn, lead you to the same actions.
Now that we’ve defined the two types of mindsets and have a basic knowledge of their qualities, I’ll explain the benefit of understanding them by providing a couple of tips so you can use to start being your best you, and living a happier, more meaningful life.
Most people live in a state of stress, causing our bodies to respond both physically and energetically, and creating blockages that prevent us from having the life we hope to live.
When we are in a state of stress, our nervous and energetic systems become altered, creating an imbalance that causes us illness, fatigue, depression, and other disorders.
To live a better life, it is imperative to find a balance between our thoughts and actions to live in harmony. When we live in a harmonious state, we realize that everything in our body and in our surroundings work better together. Life becomes more pleasant, and our energy is high – allowing us to enjoy each experience life brings our way.
We now live in a constant state of gratitude. Most people live life so preoccupied with the changes they want to make, that their main focus becomes a stress of what they have not yet achieved, rather than focusing on what they have actually accomplished.
To generate positive change in one’s life, one just has to start with changing one’s way of thinking.
How we think is how we act.
If we don’t change the way we think, we won’t change the way we act – resulting in a life of repetition. This occurs because our brain has already marked what we are doing as a habit, and habits are within our comfort zones.
Take control of your life and change how you think about things you do in your every day. This will help create new habits and broaden your comfort zone. For example, think of the neighborhood you live in as your comfort zone. When you leave your neighborhood, and enter a new neighborhood, you have just broadened your comfort zone, creating new options.
Here are some simple ways to start creating change:
Meditation: it is an incredible tool to work your energy, mind, and body. It helps you to know yourself better and generate control over your thoughts, which is basic to changing the way you think.
Gratitude: being grateful is another fundamental tool when you want to start a process of positive change. It helps you look at things differently and be conscious of even the smallest joys you are blessed with in life, and regardless of your circumstances, you will see you are better off than you imagined.
Diet: the correct diet according to your body (keep in mind each body is unique and different).
Activity: leading a healthy life, practicing sports such as yoga, walking, or one that makes you happy, are a basic foundation for a balanced life.
Guidance: there are people like me who dedicate themselves through our work to help people who want to start a change in their life. There are many different techniques. The important thing is that you always look for one that makes you feel comfortable and generates confidence in yourself. Remember, YOU deserve it. This is the perfect time to realize how wonderful you are and how happy you deserve to be.
