Elements for a Resilient Mindset



In these paradigm shifting times it’s easy to feel ‘stuck’ in old patterns, in how we respond to change and uncertainty. If you’re feeling self-doubt, lack of clarity, fear and anxiety, and experiencing the same patterns in your life that continue to elicit draining emotions, or situations that are not ideal, then it is time to PAUSE, Reset, Reorient, Reinvent. We all need tools to help us find our way — As leaders, or aspiring leaders, in your own life, or career, we won’t get very far if we don’t stop, go deep within, create consciousness to unblock limiting beliefs and triggers, and then develop a discipline to change our internal programming to manage through life with confidence, ease, and clarity. The narrative we tell ourselves shape our beliefs, identities, physiology and health, dreams, and experiences, and set the parameters for what we navigate, and achieve, positively, or negativelyIf your well-being and mindset is overly influenced and dependent on external situations or people, then you limit what’s possible yourself, and remain disempowered in your choice to respond effectively. Instead of taking action based on what is true to you, you remain unconscious, reactive, or paralyzed and tied to other’s to make you feel good, or bad. 

We all have the ability — and the responsibility — to disrupt negative thoughts and stories and create responses and choices that are conscious, and productive, and that produce a resilient mindset. No matter who you are, you have the responsibility and the ability to develop a resilient mindset. Those that develop resilience come from diverse backgrounds and situations, have had incredible set backs, worked in a variety of industries, and they all had something in common; they have learned to recreate and reorient their mindset, in order to flourish personally, and professionally. They’re able to tune out the noise, and focus on taking responsibility for their own choices, thoughts, and actions, and derive their sense of self from within. They look inside out for validation and confidence, versus outside in. They have created a discipline to shift their mindset, accomplish their dreams, and develop the resilience to grow, learn and change. Facets Coaching will help you get there with tools and state of the art methodologies that makes way to develop a resilient mindset that helps you navigate change and uncertainty with confidence and ease, and achieve the clarity to take action for positive change.

Clarity for Action

Pause and Reflect: Developing awareness of the thoughts and belief systems that run in the background and how it impacts how you feel, physically, and mentally, is critical for skill to develop in order to shift mindset. It is fairly simple. When you are feeling good, physically, or mentally, then you have positive thoughts, and belief systems that align with your true potential. When you are feeling badly and any sort of negative emotion about yourself, or a situation, then there is a thought pattern that is not productive, true, and diminishes yourself and your potential. 

Creating awareness, and changing your thoughts, then you are back in power, versus reactive, and unconscious. If you are in a state of negativity, self doubt, fear, frustration, anger, then it is time to pause and reflect in order to stop unconsciously playing out the narrative, and to start developing thoughts that reprogram the brain and shift mindset to being open, curious, hopeful, positive, so that you can take action from this perspective. New ideas and insights, and opportunities arise from this place.  There are many practices that can help you become aware of the stories that limit you: Prioritization of the daily discipline of mindfulness, journaling and visualization, thoughtful conversations through coaching, and, creativity and self-care. Once you identify the stories that keep you in a negative state, write them down. Ask which ones are serving you, and which ones are no longer working.

Reorient with Imagination: Imagination, when nurtured and developed becomes your reality. Leveraging and eliciting a feeling place and the essence of how you want to feel, and be, is a great way to not only shift your mindset, but also to change your world. Doing this takes defining and articulating your values and purpose, as well as getting clear on your natural talents and gifts, helps ground and center you. You feel and imagine your potential and therefore new opportunities to move forward with positivity and resilience.  When knocked off track, your imagination of this reality brings you back home to self. Visualizing, and feeling your purpose and how you feel when you are in your flow with confidence and creativity everyday, creates a vision is a story of how you want to move through life, respond to situations now, and in the future. Your imagination aligned with your purpose keeps you going, and you prevent others, or situations from moving you off your path, because this is the essence of YOU. There is no comparison to you.

Focus Your Attention: Focus and discipline is a program that we create. Wherever you put your focus, whether on a person or situation, you are growing an feeding it. If you are focusing on all things that could go wrong, then you are creating a thought pattern that does not allow for moving forward with confidence and ease. The great news is that we can control thoughts and how we respond to situations. As a human, you’re going to face challenges and setbacks, but its how you think and respond to them, is where we are in choice. When you understand that you have control over your thoughts and what you chose to focus on, then you can redirect your attention to thoughts that are productive, grounding, and empowering.  You create a new reality and environment for clarity and positive action. Your thoughts are decisions you make because you chose what to think about. This is also called being present awareness and takes practice and discipline to pause, reset, reorient your attention to interrupt thoughts that trigger you into a fight or flight response. It’s also easy to focus on situations, or people and become victims to allow them to hold us back. We all do it. But Victor Frankl captured the key lesson that all of us should remember: “Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation.”

Practice and Discipline: Create a discipline to transform your narrative and how you feel, physically and mentally.  in order to clear decisions, and dreams real. This becomes the core of whom you are and changes your “operating system. Don’t just tell yourself “be confident.” That will only cause frustration and defeat. Start with small goals that create a discipline of believing in yourself every day. This shift of mindset creates a new habit, pattern of behavior to believe and respond differently, and creates a new paradigm. Do something each day that pushes your inner chicken. Tune out the noise, but also listen. While operating from your own internal radar, don’t completely block out criticism or the voices of others, and be discerning of others’ projections of their own experiences on you. Look at contrast as an opportunity to inform what you want, versus what you do not want. Iterate, iterate, iterate. Test the concepts. Continuing to be confident independent of people or situations enables you to tune out the noise.

Clarity for Action: Taking action based on hope, positivity, trust and belief in yourself, and expectation of a positive outcome, comes from having a resilient mindset. Even if the outcome is not what you expected, there is growth and learning that comes from taking action, when aligned with a positive, productive way of thinking and believing. Making a decision to think and be different, is also action. Inspired action allows you to move you forward with your vision.  and is the ultimate form of movement. 

Do something each day that is part of the new you. Visualize, practice the new you, and feel your transformation, internally and externally start to happen. Then you shift a new paradigm and create your new way of being.
