Have you ever wondered how social media or 24-hour news impact the way you see and experience the world? These and many other daily interactions provide you with constant “evidence” about the state of the world, the nature of people, and your beliefs about yourself and your relationships. The catch is, some of this information might be accurate, but some might be manipulated to grab and keep your attention. Over time, this can cause an inaccurate or counterproductive view of the world, and it usually occurs without you ever realizing it. To you, it’s just the way things are.
What’s your “Mindset Diet”?
Just as you’re mindful of your food diet, it’s important to be tuned in to your mindset diet too. A mindset is a set of underlying beliefs, attitudes, and assumptions that serves as the foundation for how you view, engage with, and interact with the world. Your mindset diet is the information you take in each day that helps form your mindsets.
Use the worksheet below to help you become more aware of your mindset diet, and do an after-action review to see if the information you get helps you optimize your performance and mental health.
