One of the best ways to explain a mindset shift is that lightbulb moment that kicks in at some point in life where you realize something has to change within you to be the best version of yourself. Now, if it has not happened, do not freak out. When the time is right, it most definitely will, and you will be amazing in the journey that follows.
Here are a few tools to prepare you for that lightbulb. But make sure you are ready with the next moves and your game plan.
They are easy but will need 100% of your effort and work to make them successful. Let’s dive in
Choose to change
Being open-minded is the path to knowing your true self. You have to want to explore things you love and experience new things, and wanting to change is a choice that can only come from you. If you want something different in life, you have to be willing to be open-minded.
It does not matter what time you wake up. Have a routine. Knowing what you are supposed to do every morning gives you a sense of purpose, and you want to get up. Train your mind to have a set habit for the morning. It can be that for the first 2 hours, you do not touch your phone, or as simple as making your bed and setting an intention for the day.
Start small and keep on adding things as needed, it is easier to add to a routine than starting one. If you go to work, start waking up 10 minutes early to ensure you complete your routine before preparing for work. It could be meditating, working out, or reading a book. Whatever it is, make sure it fulfills you, and you will never regret doing it. Check out our article on how to master your morning here!

Have useful resources

Have a mentor or role model
A mentor is there with you throughout all the steps and growth in whatever you want to achieve. A role model is someone you look up to and aspire to be like in the future. One thing you need to learn is that to get a role model, you need to love their process to get to the top and not just because they are up there. Look up to somebody who you are willing to follow the late nights or the early mornings to get where they are at now.
Practicing these tools will help you and guide you when shifting your mindset. Look at what you want to achieve and take a look at how you want to get there. It is easy, but the journey requires discipline, determination, and commitment to achieve your goals.
