Set Your Mind to Success

Photographer: Bruce Mars

The mind is at the origin of everything we think, do and say. Why is it so difficult to control? And why does it seem so immune to change? Dr. Ryan Gottfredson has studied the mind and believes with the right tools, we can change our mindset. He is a leadership professor at California State University, Fullerton. He sees the mindset perspective through a leadership and academic lens. His research led him to four different mindsets that have been shown to drive success in all areas of life. So he wrote Success Mindsets: Your Keys to Unlocking Greater Success in Your Life, Work, and Leadership. He chats with Bold TV about the mind and how we have the power to create a different outlook. 

Rewiring your Brain for Positivity

What if you have a day where everything went wrong? You go to sleep and wake up with a negative mindset the next day. This means that the negative wiring in your prefrontal cortex is firing louder than the positive. But there are some steps you can take to change your mindset. First, be self-aware. Until you realize how your circumstances are affecting your mindset, you can’t take steps toward change. The second step is to engage in small interventions that activate the positive neuro connections. These interventions can include anything from meditating to writing in a gratitude journal. These practices can change your brain’s wiring so you see the world in a more positive light. 

Starting the Conversation Within Yourself

Sometimes we are the only people oblivious to our negative mindsets. A book like Success Mindsets can help us start the internal conversation. Once we realize how our mindsets control how we see the world, we take off the limits to our success. Check out the full interview and take the first step to change your outlook.
