You may have heard about Growth Mindset, but exactly what is a Spiritual Growth Mindset?
Until recently, I associated mindset with having a rah-rah ring to it. Perhaps it is because I’ve attended a number of mindset classes whereby success coaches would use highly motivational tones for raising the energy levels in the room. “Yes, you can do it!” they would shout in a rallying voice.
The problem is that mostly, after the day of such events, I had observed that the energy spikes don’t last. They fizzle out. I would return to the same energy levels as before and not much has changed.
Still, I resonate with the idea of a growth mindset.
As an avid learner, I find myself very interested in self development. I enjoy learning, reading and upgrading myself. Instead of personal grooming, I find myself more obsessive over personal growth!
After reflecting over, I would like to propose the idea of developing a spiritual growth mindset, and not just a growth mindset. A spiritual growth mindset would be one that is more sustaining, conscious and expansive. Let me share some of my thoughts below.
Spiritual Growth Mindset: Set the Intention
A spiritual mindset supports the intention to lead a soulfully conscious life. Now that you are awakening in consciousness, you would like to view life with a spiritually aligned lens. Usually people understand mindset as a set of beliefs or attitude. The beliefs let you frame the situation that you are in. They determine your perception, of how you see things. Whether you interpret things to be positive or negative, your mindset has a huge part to play in it.
A spiritual mindset is not just about having a set of uplifting beliefs. Rather, it also refers to a set of spiritually aligned beliefs that influence your reactions and behavior. Your mindset is a frame of mind that helps you move towards a set of outcomes. Your beliefs are framed by your awareness of your spiritual nature. They guide you in terms of making conscious choices that support your growth.
Beliefs are made up of thoughts. When thoughts become conditioned and habitual, you define yourself by them and who you can become. They influence you at the identity level. Many people struggle because they fail to examine the beliefs that they had unconsciously created or made in the past.
Problems arise when they identify with mistaken ideas. If you are hoping to discover your true nature or find out who you really are (the “I” or “I am”), you will need to shed off the layers of untruths. These untruths are likely to prevent you from reaching your highest potential.
Which Mindset Ae You Having? Fixed or Growth Mindset?
Carol Dweck is a professor of psychology at Stanford University, who has done extensive research over the last 30 years on how thoughts determine success. She makes the distinction between having a growth and a fixed mindset.
In a fixed mindset, you believe that success is based on innate ability such as intelligence and talent. You see them as “fixed” traits. And so, you spend your time proving your intelligence or talent instead of developing them.
With a fixed mindset, you are inclined to believe that you cannot achieve success where you are not smart enough. If you believe that you are not born with the right genes or traits, you could decide to adopt a defeatest attitude because it is as if there is nothing that you can do to change your fate. As a result, you limit your learning and become unwilling to invest in your own growth.
Conversely, in a growth mindset, you believe that success is based on hard work, learning, training and persistence. Even if you have brains and talent, you understand that they are just the starting point. You have an “incremental view” that is behind your love for learning and an attitude of resilience.
In a growth mindset, your focus is less on the outcome but more on what can be achieved by taking part in the learning process. You also understand that no one has ever scaled great heights —not Mozart, Picasso or Michael Jordan—without years of consistent practice. You enjoy modelling success so that you can up your game.
What her research has essentially proven is this: Your altitude depends on your attitude!
Modelling The Success Mindset For Spiritual Growth
Mindset is something that all great CEOS, successful entrepreneurs, thought leaders and Olympic athletes know. They have mindset coaches to help them achieve higher and higher breakthroughs and they also surround themselves with mentors, peers and team members with a positive growth mentality. It’s how glass ceilings are shattered and new records are broken every other day.
Making the choice to view and approach life from a spiritual angle, would involve developing a spiritual mindset. And so, it is holistic. In my opinion, true success has to incorporate spirituality.
