As we approach a new year, I’d like us all to focus on building a growth mindset. I do not want any of you to stay rooted in a fixed mindset.

Why?

Because I know that all of us have at least one dream – at least one thing – that we all want for ourselves, our families, our children, and/or businesses.

And achieving a dream requires us to step outside of our comfort zones. Otherwise, you would have already achieved your dream!

What is a growth mindset?

First, we must give credit where it is due. The concept of a growth mindset and a fixed mindset was created by psychologist Carol Dweck. Second, a mindset refers to your attitude and belief about something.

 Currently, how do you practice gratitude? Today, I want to discuss 5 ways to practice gratitude in our lives. I believe that gratitude is a skill that we all must cultivate.

Do you have willingness to please God? Is it your desire to be obedient to God’s will for your life? Or do you just want Him to bless your own desires?

 

What is willingness to please God?

To please God, we must have a heart that wants to please God. Then, with intention, we must create a plan to carry out God’s instructions to us. It is necessary to be intentional and purposeful with our willingness to please God.

I had so much fear of the early nights because my depressive symptoms worsened throughout the winter months. I eventually joined a group and attended group therapy to help me through the transition.
