Exploring Uncharted Territory with a Growth Mindset
Lately, I’ve been having a lot of conversation about what it means to explore uncharted territory.
I just wrapped up the first round of my online course Whole<3’d where we talked about this topic a lot. Anytime we make a commitment to following our heart you can guarantee you have to go into uncharted territory.
There’s a lot of conversation around this in WildFire as well. Bringing to life a passion, calling or the longing of your heart is a big, bold move and takes a lot of commitment. It involves entering uncharted territory.
There is an enormous amount of trust in life that is required if we want to step out in this way.
I’ve noticed two distinct ways in which people tend to look at life:
For some, life is viewed through a fixed mindset.
“I can do this. I can’t do that.”
“I get what I get.”
“I have to play the hand I’ve been dealt.”
And if you’re looking at life from this perspective there will be limits to what is possible for you.
Then there are those who view life with a growth mindset.
“I can take what I’ve been given and use it as a jumping off point.”
Possibility is endless when there is a willingness to engage and learn.
Ultimately, we have to believe that life is taking care of us.
Things are happening for us, not to us.
