POSITIVE thinking

Our life and what we make of it, depends on our approach and thinking towards it.

Our expectations are that we will reap success, obtain happiness, enjoy good health and be successful in whatever we do.

MINDSET – Its influence on our life

The most basic belief we have of ourselves is based on how we consider our personality.  Carol Dweck, a psychologist and expert on mindset, identified two types of mindset, fixed and growth. Those people with a fixed mindset believe that their character, intelligence and other abilities are all givens which cannot be changed and being successful depends on their inbuilt intelligence.  While those with a growth mindset thrive on challenges and accept failure as a facilitator for stretching their abilities and a catalyst for growth and development.  

Embracing CHANGE

Change is a constant in todays world and often attempts to resist change can be fruitless and futile. It’s better to accept the reality and embrace it when it comes along, so that you are better positioned to adapt to the new environment. Doing so would also present the option to recognize and seize the opportunities it presents.
