Obviously this a post about quotes on mindset, but what is a mindset anyways?
The Oxford English Dictionary defines mindset as the established set of attitudes held by someone.
Psychology Today says: A mindset is a belief that orients the way we handle situations—the way we sort out what is going on and what we should do. Our mindsets help us spot opportunities, but they can also trap us in self-defeating cycles.
Vocabulary.com says: A mindset is a habitual or characteristic mental attitude that determines how you will interpret and respond to situations
They all mention beliefs or attitudes.
We have many different beliefs and attitudes and collectively they form our mindset. Sometimes we can be aware of our mindset, but not the underlying beliefs and attitudes that form it.
Our lives tend to go in the direction of our mindset and our mindset leans in the direction of our attitudes and beliefs.
We must take a look at our mindset, then determine if the attitudes and beliefs making up our mindset are empowering or constraining.
We can choose to build what’s empowering and prune the rest.
These quotes on mindset won’t change your life on their own. But they can motivate, inspire, and cause you to think about things differently.
The more you think about things differently, the more likely you are to take different actions. Over time, taking different actions will change your life.
In a roundabout way, quotes on mindset (or quotes in general) can be an impetus for self improvement and change.
For example, one of my favorite quotes on mindset is:
“Once your mindset changes, everything on the outside will change along with it.”– Steve Maraboli
I like this quote because it doesn’t mention specifics. It doesn’t say anything about positive or negative, good or bad. Simply that a change in mindset turns into an external change.
The quote is all encompassing and you can apply it to any mindset whether it be positive or negative.
For example, if you have limiting attitudes and beliefs regarding relationships, chances are you have poor relationships.
If you change your attitudes and beliefs to more empowering ones, your relationships will change for the better.
You could have positive attitudes and beliefs on money until one day you have a major setback. If you let that setback change your attitudes and beliefs in a negative way, your situation will probably remain dire for a lot longer than it needs to.
The point is that mindset shifts in either direction, regardless of the particular mindset, will impact your external life in a tangible way.
The above quote might not have any significance for you, but chances are there are at least a few that will.
Check out the list below and see if some of the quotes on mindset resonate with you. If they do, commit them to memory and draw upon them when needed.
One of them could be just what you need at just the right time to help modify your thinking. Armed with new thoughts, have the courage to act on them and behave differently.
Over time, self improvement and change are inevitable.
