Getting in the Right MINDSET to take your CAREER to the NEXT LEVEL!

It’s now officially the ‘new year’ and you likely set some goals for yourself. BUT I want you to really ask yourself what you have done to ensure you will achieve those goals. A resolution alone isn’t enough.

In order to achieve your goals whenever you set them, you need to get in the right MINDSET!

I specialize in helping women to land their dream job! So let me ask you this . . . Are you ready to take your CAREER to the next LEVEL?

Yes? Simple question! Let’s land that dream job.

But is your mindset ready to get you there?

Most of us struggle with a FIXED MINDSET which is believing that nothing can ever change for you? You want it to but your subconscious is constantly telling you that you CAN’T or you WON’T be able to move forward. There is an inherent belief that you make forward progress or that nothing will ever change.

I want you to really think about this. Get in touch with your most inner thoughts on what you can or cannot do. Even if you have a high self- esteem, there is a good likelihood that you have a fear mindset. When you think of a big career change or promotion, what is the VERY FIRST instinct you have? Be honest with yourself here – no one will know the initial pit in your stomach or twinge of self-doubt.

If this is where your mindset lies then there is a high likelihood that you will remain stuck. You will not move forward in your career and you might as well pack up your goals and throw them out the window.

Let’s throw the FIXED MINDSET out the window!

NOW is the time to CHANGE your MINDSET!

It’s time for a GROWTH MINDSET!

What does that mean?

According to Maria Popova in Brain Pickings

A “growth mindset,” on the other hand, thrives on challenge and sees failure not as evidence of unintelligence but as a heartening springboard for growth and for stretching our existing abilities

The keyword here is SPRINGBOARD.

A growth mindset will allow you to take those inner-most fears that are

our psychological roadblocks and transform them into a springboard for development.

With this new GROWTH MINDSET, you will be ready to launch towards your goals and dreams for your career.

The power of your mind is truly incredible!

When you have a GROWTH MINDSET you will have and do these key things:

  • Passion

  • Positivity

  • You will embrace change as well as challenges

  • You will persist even when things get tough.

  • Criticism will drive you to make positive changes

  • You will look at the success of others and use it as a driver towards your own success

With this new GROWTH MINDSET in hand, you are ready to set out and achieve! Don’t be derailed by others if their mindset does not match up with yours. You can lead by example!

So, let’s practice your new GROWTH MINDSET. I want you to ask yourself what are your limiting beliefs and how can you shift your mindset to use those to promote your growth mindset.

I have an awesome workbook that will help get you into that growth mindset to take your career to the next level!

The first few times going through this exercise will be very conscious. But over time, you will soon realize how consciously shifting your mindset will help transform your subconscious to reach new limits.
