Mindset is like breathing. It's really, really important to those who are struggling with it, but for the rest of us there are far more important things to concentrate on. A small (but vocal) minority believe the right mindset is what matters most. Nope - the right mindset is but one small step of many. The only people who think mindset is most important are either those who are selling it, or those who have been sold it. You need to be strong enough to develop your own mindset, not be sold someone else's. The alternative to 'the right mindset' is persistence, can-do attitude, planning, research, building a team, making it happen, taking action, and hard work - these are far more important steps. And before anyone labels these attributes as 'mindset', stop and have a think why the gurus call it mindset. It's really hard to sell tickets to a 'Persistence Convention' (sounds to much like hard work), or a 'Get Off your Arse and Make it Happen Bootcamp' (that requires personal effort too), or a Planning and Research Seminar (sounds really boring). By calling it something that's intangible, that they have, and that they can convince you that you need, and they can't quite define, implies that you're missing something... that all your problems will be solved if you just bought the Right Mindset from them. So if you really do think you have the wrong mindset, then don't worry about it to much, the alternative route to success is to just Get Off Your Arse & Make It Happen, because that's the step that comes right after getting the Right Mindset anyway. So it's just as easy to completely skip the mindset phase & save yourself a lot of time & $$$ & head straight on to the Make It Happen phase. Mindset is faith based - it only works if you believe in it. Where's the double-blind, placebo controlled, randomised testing to demonstrate that it works at scale ? If it really did work, then we'd all be thinking abundant thoughts, and there would be no-one to actually to the work. There are lots of people out there that verify the null hypothesis - they all managed to achieve success without needing to acquire the right mindset first. I also lump the following into the faith based pseudo-science designed to sell stuff to susceptible minds - mindfulness (what is it ? - wiki made no sense to me), that vibrations thing that those gurus go on about - my thoughts on them are here anyone who believes that thoughts (& not actions) have an effect on anything outside the thinkers head (like curing some else's cancer), mediation - life is to short to be doing nothing & thinking about nothing too ! any religion that is based on imaginary friends - I have mate who reckons he prayed enough to cure his daughter of some bad illness astrology - unscrupulous people taking advantage of susceptible people with no knowledge of stats or probabilities choosing to have a mindset of abundance - I can tell you that you've got to do a lot more than just 'choose' it ! believing that the universe will provide or 'its meant to happen' - that's the lazy option - other people are going to make stuff happen that benefits them, unless you do something to make stuff happen that benefits you. poverty being a mindset - try asking 1B Chinese peasants, or 1B starving Africans to just fix their mindset & it'll all be just tickety-boo. It's thoughts followed by a lot of action that make the difference, not thoughts alone.
