Mindful : February 2016
Stefanie and Elisha Goldstein are clinical psychologists at the Center for Mindful Living in Los Angeles, specializing in mindfulness, with a focus on families and children. Elisha is author of The Now Effect. Most impor- tantly, adopt a learning mindset If there’s one thing that kills confidence it’s our limiting beliefs of what we “can” and “can’t ” do. Obstacles to your confidence are inevitable, but instead of allowing them to shut you down, be curious about them, learn from them, and boost your drive to achieve your goals—including becoming more confident. ● to a Confidence Boost The ability to see life as a classroom with a learning mindset can turn obstacles or setbacks into opportunities to grow and gain confidence. Try these five steps to uncover confidence within. 1 Notice any limiting beliefs that say you can’t do something. 2 In that moment, notice you’re awake and have the ability to see and do things differently. 3 Notice if there is any fear there. Meet it with self- compassion, and say to yourself, “Breathing in, I’m aware of this fear. Breath- ing out, may I be at ease.” 4 Respond with a learning mindset. You might say, “I’ve tried this before and it hasn’t worked for me, but this is a new moment, and maybe I can learn some- thing from it.” 5 Keep trying. Just like riding a bike, as you intention- ally practice and repeat this, your confidence will continue to grow. A learning mindset isn’t about achieving; it’s about aspiring to keep getting better and better. When obstacles arise, instead of falling prey to our limiting beliefs that we “can” or “can’t ” handle what life throws at us, we can be curious and open. We can use our experience as our teacher. You can’t pass or fail, because life is a con- tinuous process of growth. mindfulness save 10% “The Mindfulness Without Borders curriculum is wonderful, not only its content, but also the auda- cious vision behind it.
