Have you hit a plateau? Perhaps you need to shift and grow. Making a mindset-shift in the way you're thinking will often allow you to bound ahead and grow beyond your current situation and expectations. Moving from A to B is often a physical event. So much so we get caught in the assumption that what happens internally doesn't affect what is going on externally. I'm not sure that could be further from the truth. I've known someone for a long time who refused to accept any responsibility. Whenever something happened, they would immediately blame everyone else. It was never their fault. They complained; "at work I'm always passed over when it comes time for a promotion". They complained; "everyone else seems to have it easy and everyone else has opportunity and success falling into their lap except for me". They complained; "no one understands me or what I have to go through". Michael Hyatt said recently "The shortest distance from where you are to where you want to be is the truth". The Truth is, they never accepted responsibility. Shift and Grow Up until last year. Last year, they turned over a new leaf and life has opened up and new opportunities abound. This person now has a new job. They have just received their second promotion in less than six months. They've almost doubled their salary. They've grown their social standing with others and gained a lot of new friends. Why? Shift and Grow. Shift and grow is a principle where growth only comes after a mindset shift. So if you've hit a plateau - perhaps in your personal life or in your professional life. It might be time to consider this. If you seem to be on a Ferris wheel, going around and around and suffering the same fate year after year. You need to make a change and that change is probably your mindset. Ignore what else is going on around you. Instead, look inside you and then change your mindset and your actions and outcomes will follow.
