Shifting Your Mindset
Last issue one of my tips about learning to be with uncertainty was to check your mindset and remember that you can change it. Sometimes this is more challenging than my tip may have implied so, I thought I’d elaborate.
When you are having trouble shifting a negative or limiting mindset to something more resourceful or enlivening, try the following...
First, stop and take a few deep breaths and notice where you are. Acknowledge what you are feeling, listen to yourself. Then ask,
"What do I need to do in order to shift this mindset?"
What works for you to change your frame of mind could be quite different than for someone else. So, listening to yourself is really important.
Take stock without judgment, be a bit of a scientist on your own mind, engage your curiosity. What are you learning simply from becoming more aware?
Feeling stumped? See if you can accept and allow whatever you are feeling rather than resisting it. Ironically trying too hard to get to someplace else can sometimes hold you right where you are.
Consider a willing verses willful approach.
You may have heard the Carl Jung quote "what you resist persists". Think about it, when you resist something you are blocking it, blocking it from moving away from you. Changing your frame of mind or your perspective is really about changing your emotions. One of the best ways to change emotions is to allow them to be, then they can move through and out rather than staying stuck in you from stuffing them.
At times, noticing and accepting for the moment is all that it takes to release and shift your mindset but if that is not enough, you may need to keep exploring.
