Reality: Mindset Is The Core of Life
tedwild.com | 2023.5.10
Happy Reality Day! Here is your weekly dose of reality to help you live 1% happier.
❤ 1 Insight From Me
Mindset is the core of life.
Mindset is the foundation of all walks of life, whether you can live a good life depends on it.
- Whether you can live happily depends on your mindset. The goal of your whole life is to live happily, and whether you can live happily depends on your mindset, that is, how you face the shit that life throws at you. Depressed because of a failed exam? Or you can count stars even if you are locked up in a concentration camp?
- Whether you can do things well depends on your mindset. I said in the Wild Pyramid of Life that a person is “a master at solving problems”. In fact, the core is not how much knowledge and skills he has, but a more powerful way of thinking, and most importantly – a stronger mindset. See this article for details.
- Career Success depends on your mindset. Can you keep doing what you love despite the opposition of everyone around you? Can you overcome the fear of failure? When the opportunity comes, are you courageous enough to seize it? These are the roots of those people’s “success”. The movie “The Big Short” gave me a hit that, even if I was one of the first people on Wall Street to get the news that could earn dozens fold, would I dare to seize this opportunity? Faced with the corruption of the banking and government systems, do I dare to bet against the economy of the entire country by myself and continue to hold and not sell?
- Whether your relationship goes well or not depends on your mindset. Can you completely be yourself in front of your significant other? Do you dare to open up with him and tell him all your experiences, shortcomings, and the dark shit you have done? After a fight, can you be strong enough to take the initiative to talk to him about this matter, so as not to accumulate cracks in the relationship?
- Whether investment makes money or not depends on your mindset. Financial management is not about tricks but about mentality. The trick is very simple – “go long-term”, but seeing your stock jump by 30%, can you continue to invest?
- Whether you can meet more people depends on your mindset. What is the default image of a stranger to you? Bad? Good? Do you feel nervous when near a girl, or comfortable? Are you a people pleaser? Or do you have a strong heart? These are all mindsets.
- Physical health also depends on your mindset. Are you really aware of the importance of good health? Are you exercising for shape or body? Do you miss meals doing some shit at work? These are mindsets.
All your actions come from mindsets.
All of my content centers around the word “mindset”, stay subscribed, stay happy.
❤ 1 Insight From Others
“Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, your values become your destiny.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
❤ 1 Question For Yourself
Have you realized that the “mindset” is actually the cornerstone of every part of your life? And your happiness, career, emotion, health, and wealth all stem from your mindset?
❤ 1 Small Step To Take
Take out a piece of paper and write down:
- The 3 biggest failures so far. Any aspect is fine, could be school, career, relationship, etc;
- Write down the mindset behind these failures.
You’d be amazed that this invisible thing “mindset” is the boss.
