another buzz word...

At a friend's birthday this week, someone asked me if 'mindset' was just a buzzword. Or said differently a word that is trending, ultimately transient and lacking concrete substance. I understand where this question came from and the sentiment behind it because the word mindset is bounded around often without an explanation of its meaning. Yet research shows that mindsets play a significant role in determining life's outcomes.

If you hear mindset, but you don't understand what it means, then the word would be a buzzword. It would be meaningless.

Language is powerful and the words that we use have a big impact on our lives and the lives of those around us. However, it's also the meaning behind the words we use that count. Not knowing what mindset means results in confusion, lack of understanding or misinterpretation of the word.

If language and its meaning impact our lives and mindset play a significant role in determining life's outcomes..then language affects our mindset.

Within my coaching program 'Reconnect To You', I use techniques and exercises to support the women that I work with to improve their language use to support their thoughts/beliefs/attitudes. Often we don't realise that the words we are using are impacting our interpretation and view of the world around us. Then we simply continue in this cycle of growing the negative, unhelpful beliefs/attitudes/thoughts and impacting our lives significantly.

So I say it's time to stop with the buzzwords and find substance. To understand what is being said, what those words mean and how they are impacting your life.
