A Mindset is essentially a form of thought that naturally comes to you.

It is a set of beliefs that tunnel your thoughts into certain thinking patterns and, therefore, action patterns.

Things like a Fear Mindset, Greed Mindset or Growth Mindset are as straight-forward as we think they are.

They all revolve around having certain types of thoughts in every situation.

For example: A fear mindset will find something to fear in every situation.

When a bill shows up in their mail they immediately begin to fear being poor, when they find themselves standing awkwardly at the sidelines of a party they snowball this to the fear of being alone forever, and when they are tasked to give a very short, almost irrelevant, presentation at work their mindset throws them into the worst possible outcomes.

A growth mindset, on the other hand, would lead the person to think about ways to expand upon those situations.

Mindsets are a collection of beliefs that interact to form certain patterns.

It’s as though we all view the world through our own belief-tinted lenses.

These lenses provide a view of the world which we interact with, but which is not always the way the world actually is.
