You Don’t Have to Get Your Mind Right to Take Action

Does this sound familiar?You’ve spent hours journaling, sorting through limiting belief systems that don’t serve you, you’ve gone all-in on chanting mantras that are meant to change that belief, and yet you still find yourself stuck in the same place? Journaling and working on your mind is great. But it’s not the only approach to getting what you want out of your life and business. If personal development is something you value in life, especially if you’re a business owner, you’ve likely heard that mindset is key—hence all of the journaling.

That’s why when things go awry in your life, mindset is the first place you look, examining the limiting beliefs you have and questioning if you believe you’re truly worthy. While many people say that you have to get your mindset “right” in order to create a truly amazing life, they couldn’t be more wrong. Movement is far more important than mindset, and here’s why. Changing your state changes your mindStudies show that changing your mindset isn’t always something you do cerebrally—following your thought patterns and trying to rewire them.

Sometimes changing the way your mind thinks, feels, or believes about a certain thing happens as a result of getting into action and allowing your body to influence your thoughts. That’s why only relying on mindset practices that keep you in your head (or trying to force you into feeling positive emotions when you don’t), won’t help you.  No matter how hard you try to think positively, to not feel fear, or to not feel anxious—you can’t escape it.

We all have times when those feelings creep up. You can try to outrun those feelings, or bury them, but those things are simply bandaids that won’t actually help you in the long run.

3 Major Keys to Having a Great Work Ethic
We are in the age of “instant gratification” and, thanks to the internet, countless forms of ways to “get rich” or become a “millionaire” by doing these things.  With the addition of social media and other platforms that allow the delivery of content to you at your fingertips, it is easier than ever before to become very lackadaisical throughout your day. From consuming content, scrolling through social media, and even creating content for different platforms, can simply turn a “work” day into a “busy” day.  At the same time, some would describe this as being distracted, unmotivated, and even lazy.  I believe that it is the question of work ethic that is taking a hard hit right now and something that we need to address moving forward.  Based on my google search of “the definition of work ethic”, it is defined as the principle that hard work is intrinsically virtuous or worthy of reward.  If you take the literal definition of what work ethic means, you work hard at what you’re doing and you get rewarded for that hard work.  There is no magic trick to it other than simply working hard.  I believe that there are three important keys to having a great work ethic and if you choose to take these and implement them, you can continue to improve in your life, profession, and/or business.  You hear this all the time.  “Do what you love and you won’t work a day in your life”.  Well of course that is true and, for the majority of people out there, they are learning to love what they’re doing because it is what pays the bills and helps them survive.  With that being said, you have to have passion for what you are doing.  By getting up everyday because of your desire to want to be the best at what you are doing in life is going to
