You might have heard of a systems mindset but have you heard of mindset systems? A mindset system is a process of declaring how you want the day will go.
The way you start your day can be the most important indicator of how you spend the rest of your day. It’s an integral inner system that influences your outcomes.
The problem is that many business professionals start with good intentions to create a mindset system but then slack off. Like starting any new habit, it takes intentionality and commitment to have it become part of your daily routine and integrated into your company culture.
Your Inner Mindset System
Your mindset system can be really subtle, like when you frequently say, “I’m not clear,” “nobody listens to me,” or “what else can happen.” This negative or self-limiting messaging is creating your world.
If you find yourself in this mindset system, there is good news. You can change it. The first step is to integrate your new mindset system and messaging into your daily routine.
If you have a morning routine, like getting on a treadmill or engaging in your daily yoga, use that as an opportunity to shift your messaging. Instead of “I’m not clear” start with: “My vision gets clearer every day.” Instead of “Nobody listens to me” say “I am articulate and people listen”. Instead of “what else can happen” say “I invite exciting and positive opportunities into my life.”
Make Mindset Systems Part of Your Company’s Culture
As a leader, when you practice your own mindset system, it puts a level of integrity when you integrate it into your company’s culture. If you hear nothing but bad news at every meeting, it’s time to start each meeting with intentions. Make sure your first agenda item invites your team to share what they have accomplished to move their goals forward and set an intention for how the day will go.
By consistently engaging in these mindset systems, notice what begins to transform. And, if you’ve gotten out of the habit of setting your intentions and declaring what you want to have happen, it might be a good time to get back on track. Don’t you think?
