You are great!
This is one of my No1. Growth Mindset Training Truths
As a Growth Mindset trainer, I have been privileged to spend time with many vastly different individuals. All of whom are complex beings, possessing many personas, beliefs and habitual patterns. I could go on listing the plethora of differences, complexities and traits. However, when all is said and done, one thing is super clear to me, we all have greatness deposited deep within - making us Great!.
Now, I know this may seem pretty self righteous, optimistic even, stretching the truth or maybe a little hopeful. Nope!, I'm serious when I say this - you are great!.
The distance between you and the certainty you have in this fact, is informative.
I believe there is a big shift required in the way we view ourselves and each other. The lie has become to pursuit greatness by adding to ourselves, money, fame, possessions, status. Completely missing the real truth that is in plain sight, we already are great. All we need to do is strip back and let-go of the unnecessary in our lives that prevent our greatness from being expressed.
OK, Let's apply this to ...happiness.
The old model - happiness is a destination point in which we move towards, achieve, reach or accumilate. We believed we had to we pursuit it from wise individuals or attain it by purchasing more stuff. We even think some possess more of it and some had a deficit.
Listen closely to the Genuine model - happiness is in abundance within all of us. It has the potential to fill the person to the point of overflow. However, it is being suppressed to different degrees by beliefs, expectations and internal standards we set through creating a condition.
So you may ask,
Does It really exists in all of us? and only prevented from overflowing by the conditioning, level of awareness and ability of the individual? you got it !! yes! yes!...yes!
In short, happiness is kept bound up by the conditions we've pre-set (that have to line up) in order to either allow us or deny us from experiencing that particular emotional state - the state we call happiness.
In many of my Growth mindset training courses I continuously expose this truth as it sets off a string of other empowering beliefs.
If we start to view ourselves and others from this new perspective, we can start to see that many individuals, groups, and communities have been approaching positive change in the wrong way.
They even say greatness is found in the likes of humility and contentment. I fully and deeply understand what they MEAN. However, what they really mean is humility, contentment and other virtues are descriptions of stripping back the unnecessary. And again, once this is done, it allows what we have always had in us to shine through.
I can truly say I've never had a client in any of my growth mindset training fail to dramatically change. That is, I've always seen a client's new life journey gain momentum and finally breakthrough with outstanding results. Why? because it's always about locating the blocks, stripping away and empowering by way of awareness - what exists already.
Look, if you are a human being, you are great, full of greatness, you are in fact greatness itself.
You have been made of the substance of greatness and all that it's composed of - happiness being one element.
Know that our journey is simply trainings to bring this to our awareness.
