The right mindset will not solve every problem, but the wrong mindset will make it worse.
We hear a lot that we need the right mindset to be able to deal with challenges and that is very true. Some even go as far as suggesting that having the right mindset is all it takes to deal with challenges, often in combination with an offer for their book or coaching to give you the right mindset, and that is of course nonsense.
What we can however easily identify is the importance of having the right mindset to focus on solutions instead of problems. The right mindset to be able to determine when you need support and reach out to experts is just as important. There are many elements of the right mindset and there isn’t a standard recipe of mindset that matches with all challenge. Challenges and the means to overcome them are as diverse as people are.
What we do know is this: The right mindset will not solve every problem, but the wrong mindset will make it worse.
