How Your Mindset is Created

Mindset is a crucial aspect of our lives as it shapes the way we think, feel, and behave. Our mindset is created through a combination of nature and nurture, including our upbringing, environment, experiences, and beliefs. We will delve into the various factors that shape our mindset and examine the profound impact it has on every aspect of our daily experiences and decisions.

Nature: Nature refers to the genetic predispositions that we are born with. Studies have shown that some personality traits and tendencies are influenced by genetics. For example, some people are naturally optimistic, while others tend to be more pessimistic.

Nurture: Nurture refers to the environment, experiences, and relationships that shape our beliefs and attitudes. Our upbringing and the people around us have a significant impact on the development of our mindset. For example, if someone grows up in an environment that emphasizes the importance of hard work and perseverance, they are likely to have a growth mindset, where they believe that their abilities can be developed through effort and dedication.

Experiences: Experiences also play a critical role in shaping our mindset. Positive experiences reinforce our beliefs and lead to an optimistic outlook, while negative experiences can cause us to develop a more pessimistic outlook. For example, if someone experiences failure, they may develop a fixed mindset, where they believe that their abilities are set and cannot be changed.

Beliefs: Beliefs are the underlying convictions that shape our perception of the world. Our beliefs shape the way we interpret our experiences and the way we respond to them. For example, if someone believes that they are capable of achieving their goals, they are more likely to take action towards their goals and be more successful in life.

In conclusion, our mindset is created through a combination of nature, nurture, experiences, and beliefs. Understanding the creation of mindset is crucial as it allows us to be more aware of our thoughts and beliefs and how they influence our daily lives. By developing a growth mindset, we can change our beliefs and attitudes, which can have a positive impact on our success and happiness!

After dealing with my own gut issues, food sensitivities, and mindset obstacles, I was inspired to study holistic health. Although I was always interested in health and wellness growing up as an athlete, I suffered from a severe concussion at 15 and this was a pivotal moment for me in my health journey. I realized the link between all aspects of health, how our body keeps the score, and how our pain, gut problems, and patterns can be traced back to specific moments. I work with clients by looking at all aspects of health (“food off the plate”) as well as nutrition and mindset to find an approach to empower them to take back their health and feel their most confident selves. My coaching method starts by Identifying your "WHY", beliefs, and patterns. Then, we will Reflect on your blocks. Lastly, by working together we will create actionable steps to incorporate into your life, and shortly after, YOU will Become.
