8 Mindset Shifts That Will Change Your Life
Mindset is everything. You can take all the action in the world towards manifesting your dreams but you won’t get very far if your mindset is not in the right place. You don’t have to do anything crazy to change your mindset. It actually happens in the very subtle, small everyday shifts. Overtime, you’ll create new neural pathways in your brain and rewire the way your mind thinks. This is turn will change your life because our outer world is simply a reflection of our inner truth. While there are tons and tons of mindset shifts you can make, here I’m sharing just a few of my favorites. These little shifts alone can radically transform your reality.
I Get to vs. I Have to
Whenever you start to complain about all the things you “have to” do, it’s an opportunity to redirect to a more grateful place. Instead of saying, “I have to go to work,” switch it to “I get to go to work.” Do you feel the difference in energy? I have to implies that you don’t have a choice or that it’s somehow a bad thing. I get to implies that it’s a blessing and you’re grateful for it. You don’t “have to” go to work, pay bills, do the dishes, take care of your kids, etc. You GET TO do all of those things. They are blessings.
Fixed Mindset vs. Growth Mindset
We all have fixed and growth mindsets in different areas of our lives. A fixed mindset believes that you are just the way you are and there’s nothing you can do to change it. It means you avoid challenges, give up easily, and don’t put a lot of effort into it. A growth mindset believes that it is within your control to grow and improve and change the way you are. You embrace challenges, overcome obstacles, and are willing to put in the effort towards self-mastery. So look at what areas of your life you perhaps have a fixed mindset in and start to implemnt a growth mindset instead in order to create change.
See Jealousy as a Good Thing
Jealousy tends to get a bad rap, which makes sense. It doesn’t feel good to feel jealous or envious of someone, but you can turn it around and use jealousy for good. Instead of allowing it to trigger negative emotions, ask yourself what is this jealousy trying to tell me? What exactly am I jealous of? What does this person have that I want? Asking yourself these questions will help you gain some clarity about the things you do want so that you can then go manifest them!
Use Fear as a Guide
It’s very easy to feel fear and want to run the other way, but one of the biggest mindset shifts you can make that will radically change your life is to use fear to guide you. Fear is a GOOD thing. It means there’s an opportunity for growth. And when there is growth, you manifest the things you want with so much ease. So don’t hide from your fears. Step into them. Embrace them. There is something magical waiting for you. Life is truly so much better on the other side of your fears.
Failure Is Just Information
Depending on how you look at it, failure can either be the end of the road or just the beginning. It’s all about perspective. If you look at it as a bad thing, it’ll discourage you from trying again. It will make you feel small. It will make you feel like you’re not good enough. Instead, choose to see “failure” as just information. It tells you what didn’t work so then you can go back to the drawing board and try something different.
It’s Happening for You Not to You
OMG. This one is probably my absolute favorite because there’s been plenty of times in my life where it feels like everything is going wrong or falling apart. But, instead of feeling sorry for myself, playing the victim, and complaining about why all these bad things are happening to me, I remind myself that everything is happening for me and my highest good, not to me. Everything happens for a reason. It’s either teaching you something, helping you grow in some way, or clearing space for something better to come through.
I’ll Be Happy When...
There’s always a next level we want to get to and more things we want to manifest. It’s part of having a human experience. But, if you make your happiness dependent on something you don’t have yet not only will you never truly be happy, it won’t ever manifest. Don’t wait to be happy until you have the succesful career, money, partner, job, etc. The secret to manifesting is to feel happy now and then all those things will manifest. So focus on being happy in the present moment.

Flip the Switch on Limiting Beliefs
This exercise is such a pivotal part of the work I do as a Manifestation Coach. It’s so simple yet incredibly powerful. You first pinpoint your limiting beliefs and then you just create a phrase that is the oppositie of it. For example, if you believe you’re not worthy. You would flip that to “I am worthy.” Super simple. So whenever those feelings come up, you’d just shift your mindset to focus on your new more empowering belief.
