5 Best tips to Transform Mindset

5 Best Tips to transform Mindset

It can be heart breaking to see your child anxious an not know how to help them.

My 12 year old has had to transform her anxiety into SuperPowers and she has succeeded. Sometimes a little too much! We found tools to help us along our journey, yoga, meditation and the best of all Stories.  She struggled with perfectionism, I often use the word with pride but not so in my daughter.

What is Perfectionism?

It’s not that she did not want to succeed but she was terrified too. She was so afraid of showing who she really is and where she stands in life.  She can set goals but instead of chasing them she will shy away worried  that people won’t like her if she wins. So she gets stuck in the thought cycle.

Why does this happen?

MINDSET!

“A growth mindset is a belief that our intelligence and ability is something we can grow with practice and effort.” Renee Jain

A Fixed mindset is a belief we are born with our intelligence and ability and that’s just the way it is.

Does she have a Fixed Mindset or a Growth Mindset?  She flips from one to the other, putting a poster on the wall will not fix it. We have to keep doing it, every day, we need to work on it everyday.
