WHERE IS YOUR MINDSET AND CAN YOU CHANGE IT

Lots of people think we are born with our mindset. That either you are naturally happy or you are not. That you ARE naturally outgoing or you are not.

The truth is many of these characteristics are learned patterns implanted into our stories.

Babies take in so much information even before they are born.

Non Verbal communication- tone of voice, word speed, inflection, movement are all cues that an unborn child intakes.

After birth, a child can get the rest of the nonverbal cues such as body language and facial expressions.

And though, your child isn't judging you, it does pick up quickly what is acceptable and what isn't. This is the beginning of our story and our mindset.

Our story lives in our subconscious mind. The subconscious mind runs over 90% of our everyday lives.

For the most part we do not consciously choose our actions, reactions, and feelings.

This autopilot is all controlled by the subconscious.

This is also where our story about who we are, what we can accomplish, what we like and what we don't like lives.

It is really our story that we tell ourselves that makes up our mindset and outlook on life.

The great thing is we can rewrite our story at any time. (Learn more here)

We don't have to be slaves to our mindset. For good or bad, we are in control.
