The Mindset Car Analogy

Imagine you are on your way, in your little Red car, to your goals for this week, this month, this year and you run into an obstacle.
(This is where Mindset comes in) How you PERCIEVE your obstacle will determine how you PROCEED after facing it. Many times when our mindset is not tended to, we may have ONE bad experience
(one flat tire), and we go and slash the other three tires. We perceive the obstacle as a failure and not as an opportunity for growth.
An Alternative to this is taking a moment to say:
– What caused this flat/experience? What is a driver’s error/ (was it me) or was it out of my control?
– What resources do I need to fix it?
– Who can help?
– What needs to be different?
Because it’s not the ONE flat tire that kept you from your goals, it was the mindset that caused you to slash the other three.
