Static Mindset

People’s default mindset is forged under conditions where everything that happens in the present is a result of past actions; and so are future outcome resulting from present actions. Past, present and future are placed over a static and linear timeline.

There’s nothing wrong with this model. There is, however, a bigger issue: our present condition is packed with untrue memories and stories that create a heavy baggage capable of blocking our present actions, resulting in a future of uncertainties, doubts, fear.

This way our present is loaded with unresolved past stories and therefore the actions that must be taken here in the present carry less force as our focus remains on the past. This creates low performance and scarcity. To live centered on the stories of the past is to live in scarcity, is to lose the possibility of finding prosperity, freedom and a plentiful life.

In the future we will cover how to get rid of this package and the difference between dynamic mindset outcomes that are associated with the full-baggage and the empty-baggage states.
