When was the last time you attempted to lose weight (again), but it didn’t work? “I’ve done everything all those experts tell me to do, go to the gym everyday but I still can’t lose weight.” “I’ve tried all the diet out there, but nothing seems to work.” “I exercise hard and watch what I eat but I’m still fat, what did I do wrong here?” Any of those familiar with you? What if I told you that maybe it has nothing to do with your exercise and diet at all. None of those external factors, maybe it’s your internal factors that have been holding you back. I believe everything starts from the mind. If you have the right mindset, you can achieve anything in life not just in fitness.

“What you think you become.” – Buddha

According to Carol Dweck (if you want to know more about fixed and growth mindset. I recommend a book from Carol titled Mindset) we can differentiate the fixed and growth mindsets across these traits.

Fixed mindset – creates an urgency to prove yourself over and over. You attach yourself to the outcome, if I don’t success people will look at me that I’m stupid therefore I’m a failure. I mean it’s good that you have a goal. You need to know why you have to wake up at 5 am every day to go to the gym, if not then what’s the point of doing it anyway? You can eat anything in front of you, because that’s probably doesn’t matter right? But try not to attach yourself to the outcome, instead focus on the process, the learning part. It’s more about a journey, not a destination. A few phrases of fixed mindset will be like;

  • Failure is the limit of my abilities.
  • I’m either good or I’m not.
  • When I’m frustrated, I give up.
  • I stick to what I know.
  • I can’t do it; this is too hard.

Growth mindset – everyone can change and grow through learning. If I don’t become a success, I can always learn from it so I can better myself next time. Have a practice mindset which is don’t get high or low on results. Even though you don’t live up to your standard is just another practice at you developing a better version of yourself. A few phrases of growth mindset will be like;

  • Failure is an opportunity to grow.
  • I can change and I can learn anything I want.
  • I’m inspired by the success of others.
  • I like to try new things.
  • Look at challenges as opportunities.
