1. What is Stuck State

Ok! Let’s first understand, why people reach a stuck state and could not proceed forward. Why are some companies small and remain small?

• Fear,
• Following the same pattern,
• Being in the comfort zone,
• Lack of Vision,
• Lack of Purpose,
• Lack of Clarity,
• Lack of Leadership,
• Lack of thinking big,
• Lack of Action.

So, the way you think influences the choices you make. How we perceive things is extremely important and it influences our happiness and also success.

Therefore, mindset is associated with Growth.

2. How Mindset Forms

Everything begins inside your mind. It is mainly due to

1. Our beliefs, attitudes, feelings, core values and philosophical outlook on the world.
2. Set of beliefs that shape how you make sense of the world and yourself,
3. A person’s way of thinking and opinion.

It is the lens through which we see the world.

So, here arises a question. When does a mindset form?

3. When does a Mindset Form

Mindset starts from childhood through the form of praising and labelling. There are two types of praising

• Personal praising
• Process praising.

When you praise a child by mentioning his/her talents, it is personal praising. For example Veera, you are a good boy.

When you praise a child by mentioning his /her activities, it is called process praising. For example, Radha, you won because of your consistent efforts.

Labelling impacts the mindset of a child. When he/she is angry for a valid reason and we label them as – He is a short-tempered boy. His subconscious mind will process and even in unwanted circumstances, he would get angry.

So, you might ask, should I personal praise or process praise? 20% personal praise and 80% process praise is a good ratio.
