Several of you asked me what I mean by high performance coaching.   Permit me the opportunity to explain.  In my world of coaching high performers, we focus on developing a growth mindset, maintaining good habits, great relationships, and how to maintain focus and discipline and more. Coaching to high performance is a process that leads you to discovery, decision making, improving performance and overall better living.  When these are in alignment, the overall satisfaction with life increases.

It truly all begins with your mindset.  So here comes the question of the week. Do you have a magical growth mindset or a fixed mindset?  Now some of you are probably saying, I am sick and tired of hearing about this mindset issue but let me tell you my friends, everything begins here.

What the heck is mindset and how does it impact you?

Can your mindsets change?

Well first we must look at the definition of mindset…

I went to the experts… Webster’s dictionary to get the definition.  According to Webster, Mindset is a mental attitude of inclination. Mindsets help us understand how a person approaches problem solving and overcoming challenges.

Think of them as your basic instinct and your survival mechanism. 

According to Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck – “what you believe about yourself plays a pivotal role in what you want and whether or not you achieve it.  She has done the pioneering work on how our mindset predicts our potential, particularly when it comes to success and failure.

Her research has also shown that those with a growth mindset are more resilient, less easily discouraged and persevere longer and harder than those with a fixed mindset. 

Join me as I share some insights on developing a magical growth mindset.
