Conquering mindset challenges

by | Jul 20, 2019 | Lifestyle, Mindset

A lot of building anything in life has to do with conquering your mindset around it. Whether it’s wealth, health, career/business, relationships or any other facet of your life.

Did you grow up with parents who were squabbling and other generally poor examples of relationships around you?

You likely have no relationship issues if your mindset around relationships is that of – “I’m never going to have that for myself when I grow up”. On the other hand if your mindset was that of fear that you will have similar issues in your own life – you likely have relationship issues right now. No if’s and but’s to it.

It’s the same with money, say you grew up poor or with very little and always suffered from a feeling of scarcity.

If as a child you made up your mind that you will always “have enough” in your adult life and never suffer from the want for money, you likely are comfortable and doing well in your financial life now. But if childhood fears were of never having enough as an adult it’s very likely you don’t have enough or you don’t feel you have enough even if you make enough.

Our subconscious works perfectly a 100% in shaping our outside world. It determines the blueprint for it. It is very helpful to examine our deepest fears around the major areas of life – Environment, Business/Career, Finances, Health, Family/Friends, Relationships and more. I highly recommend this exercise by Tony Robbins’ called Wheel of Life to evaluate where you are in life and to identify areas that could use improvement. This exercise covers your health, career, finances, relationships, spirituality and more. Everything that it takes to be a healthy, happy and whole human. Are you currently thriving in your finances but suffering in your relationships or are plagued with health issues? It doesn’t help to be extremely successful, a 10 in one area and be a 1 in another. We will simply be unfulfilled.

We all have weak spots, there’s no shame in them. We are imperfect beings. We will always be a work in progress. But if we are serious about improving our life and being more fulfilled we need to get down to business and allow ourselves to be honest with ourselves or get vulnerable with someone we trust (I highly recommend a coach) . Coaches are trained to help us see things that we might be oblivious to. This might open up a childhood trauma or wound that we are subsconsciously still living out in our adult lives and that’s exactly what we need to conquer our mindset.

Good luck!
