Where are you today on your health journey?
Personal growth is essential to achieve optimal health and wellbeing and a growth mindset allows you to not only take on new challenges, but to actively seek them out. It’s important to develop a growth mindset to realize your ability to succeed, no matter what obstacle you may face. It can also have a positive impact on your self-esteem and relationships.
Here are some tips for developing a growth mindset:
View challenges as opportunities. View challenges as doors leading to your goals. They are opportunities to learn and strengthen yourself. Your biggest challenge is determining your attitude. Will you be excited, upbeat, and stay determined? With a small shift in attitude, what may seem like a setback is actually a chance to take your Program to the next level.
Try different learning strategies. There’s no one-size-fits-all model for learning. What works for one person may not work for you. Take some time to determine your learning style so you’re better prepared to tackle your goals.
Focus on the process. Major change does not happen overnight, so it’s important to be realistic about the timeline for reaching your goals. Implementing new, healthy habits in the learning process will make them more likely to stick over time.
Choose learning over approval. If we’re more concerned with receiving approval from others, we may lose perspective on our goal. It’s important to focus on improving ourselves for our own benefit to increase our growth potential.
Celebrate your progress. Celebrating your victories will motivate you toward your goal. Share your progress with a loved one, the Healthy Together community, or me by commenting below.
Reflect on your learning. Journaling is a great way to reflect on new lessons you’ve learned along your journey. Keep track of healthy tips and also document your physical and emotional feelings to allow the lessons to sink in. This can help identify what is working well or if there are any changes that need to be made.
