Your mindset is what determines your journey and destination. As Carol Dweck – author of Mindset & psychologist says “Talent isn’t passed down in the genes! It is found in the mindset” When I first moved to the US in 2015, I had a lot trouble finding a job. I faced rejection and found myself plagued with self-doubt. Here was what was on my mind.
I was focusing on what was missing. My mindset was limiting, and when I met people, I was afraid to lean into my story. I wasn’t being assertive about my talent & experiences. A pivotal moment came one day when a friend told me- Hey you may not have US experience, but you have International experience- which is an asset. I thought to myself! Wow. I do. That shifted my mindset from one of lack to one of abundance. I made a list of all the things I had.
This was an abundance mindset, and allowed me to feel confident about myself. It changed the way I introduced myself to others. I was able to land my dream position & my relocation story was featured in multiple newspapers, including USA Today and others. As you read these two descriptions, ask yourself which mindset are you operating from? If you are in a scarcity mindset, when you introduce yourself to someone, you might have a great script, but your inner confidence will not shine through. We need to move to the abundance mindset to be able to own our story.
The next question on your mind may be- How do I gain an abundance mindset?
