It's not all about mindset!
Mindset has become a buzzword over the past few years.
"It's all about the right mindset!"
"You need a growth mindset, not a fixed mindset."
"Conquer your mindset and you can do anything!"
But is it really as simple as just making your mind think a certain way? Not quite.
A great example of why I say that would be to look at my relationship with vacuuming.
I've hated vacuuming for as long as I can remember. I grew up with a large and HEAVY indestructible vacuum from the 80's. Vacuums of this size are not friendly to being moved any way other than rolling front to back, so when stairs are factored in, it becomes an ordeal.
Dragging hoses and poles and a little machine that always falls over has been the bane of my existence. It didn't matter that I had made up my mind that my house was going to be cleaner, and I was going to do a better job of vacuuming more often. The minute I went to go do said vacuuming, I would be miserable. Everyone knows the pain of pulling out the power cord when you go too far right?
My mind was fully in the right place to keep my home tidier and make it a place I felt relaxed and welcome in, but my tool for ensuring that would happen was all wrong!
Until I got a Dyson.
Then the whole world changed! A cordless and POWERFUL vacuum that made the chore so much EASIER!
No more bags. No more unplugging the power. No more clogs and jams and filter changing.
Now, you never have to ask if I've vacuumed. I do it daily because it is so much EASIER (and when you have a Siberian Husky, you need to vacuum A LOT).
That's why I say it's not all about mindset. If you don't have the right tools, you'll be stuck on the launch pad.
