How? First and foremost, work on your mindset.
Do you have a fixed mindset or a growth mindset?
Without the correct mindset, you will run into roadblock after roadblock because your mind will not be in the right place. I now know that my incorrect mindset was one of the main reasons for my failures. My head was not in the right place; my mindset was fixed and I couldn't get passed the fixation to move forward.
So, ultimately the how is just making the decision to move forward, no matter what, and determining whether or not you are going to choose to have the mindset to go under, over, through or around the obstacles that get in the way. My experience has taught me there will be obstacles if there is growth. Moving forward is sometimes small, sometimes leaps and bounds, but if you keep moving forward, you will grow. I have in some unexpected ways.
My mentor has said this to me several times and I really had to hear it a few times to finally be able to say, "okay, I am going to trust myself!" So, now when I begin to question myself, I say, "trust yourself" until I do and keep moving forward. If you are working on getting or keeping your mindset in the growth stage, trust yourself as you move forward. You do not have to be perfect. It was such a relief to finally understand that so that I could be free to learn and grow and imagine and create. It is extremely freeing to allow yourself to be human.
Have a plan. Know why, when, where, what, and who.
Take the why, when, where, what and who that you have been working on from this series and then from that information begin to develop a plan. How are you going to begin to develop your growth mindset and your why, when, where, what and who into a plan so you have the how figured out? Remember this is just the beginning. This is not written in stone and it will change. It is just a plan that is updated and revised as you go. You start to plan with the growth criteria in mind and you begin to outline a course of action.
From there, I have some thoughts on what your next step might be so please watch for a blog post from me. I am thinking about something fun and perhaps with a little bit of a surprise. Please watch for it.
Thank you for sharing this series with me. I hope you have somehow learned something through my experiences that will help you and have found some courage to take that flight. Please begin that step. If not now, when? If not you, it will be someone else.
It can be you, it can be now, and you can grow your wings one little feather at a time. I can't wait until we are soaring together.
