The Midlife Mindset Seesaw.
During the first half of our lives, we refine our capacity to prove ourselves; then, around midlife, we realize that the only proving we need to do is to ourselves, not to others.
It’s also during the second half of life when we realize the value of improving ourselves with no concern for who’s watching.
This critical realization defines our shift from a fixed to a growth mindset. At first, this shift can feel a bit like riding a seesaw. It’s scary as the center of gravity shifts, but, oh glory, the view from the top is worth the ride.
What’s an area of your life where you have a fixed mindset that is ready to be transformed into a growth mindset? Your seesaw awaits!
