Mindset & Accountability
What is Mindset
Mindset refers to the idea that what we think - and particularly what we think about ourselves - influences how we perceive and experience the world around us. Our thoughts, perceptions, and emotions shape our reality.
When we talk about mindset on a more personal level, the key is to ask yourself: do you notice how your thoughts and feelings influence your actions? If you think a prospect will hate your product or service, you will not be as credible and energetic as you should, leading to a lost sale. If you try to brainstorm ideas for your business while feeling down or sad, you won’t get many good ones.
By practicing self-awareness (asking yourself what are you thinking or feeling in the moment) and keeping in mind that what we think shapes our actions, we can choose to interpret them in a constructive and positive way, that promotes action and learning.
The articles below outline where we often go wrong and what to do about it.
What Is Accountability?
Accountability can be translated as accepting responsibility. And “response-ability” is your ability to respond to a situation.
You can respond to an offer by choosing to buy or not buy. You can respond to a complain by choosing to listen or argue. Being accountable is choosing to respond to our circumstances, instead of simply complaining about their consequences.
Whenever we’re faced with a problem, we have two choices: create a self-disempowering explanation (avoiding accountability), or a self-empowering one (being accountable). It is important to understand the difference between the two, and be aware of how our choice impacts our actions and behaviors.
