Women over 55 Embracing A Growth Mindset

Women over 55 are a really powerful force - especially when they start to embrace a  growth mindset.

Embracing a Growth Mindset

Women over 55 are a really powerful force – especially when they start to embrace a  growth mindset. You’re brimming with experience, and wisdom. And right now, looking to the future, you’re beginning to cultivate a renewed sense of purpose. In fact with people staying healthier for longer one might be excused from thinking that 60 is closer to being ‘middle-aged’.

Yet so many social stereotypes paint dreary pictures of decline after a certain age. It is really important that we reject these ideas and notions.  We don’t have to believe them because the truth is that 55+ can be the beginning of a thrilling transition to a brand new chapter!

Let explore what we mean by a growth mindset with some actionable tips and hopefully a big touch of inspiration.

Unlock Your Potential: Free Yourself From Limits 

  • Identify Limiting Beliefs: We all have beliefs that can hold us back. These might be thoughts like “I’m too old to start something new” or “I’m not smart enough to achieve that goal.” It’s important to make time to identify these and then challenge them totally and utterly.
  • Reframe Your Thinking: Once you get used to the idea of reframing, it becomes a fun journey that is very freeing. Instead of focusing on negatives or limits, reframe your thoughts to emphasise your strengths, experiences, and the power of continuous learning – keeping your brain alive.

  • Embrace Challenges as Opportunities: Change the way you see setbacks and make them opportunities for growth. Learn from your mistakes, be flexible and adapt your approach. Remember, success often lies just on the other side of challenges.

Reignite Your Passion: Reconnecting with Your Dreams 

  • Rediscover Your Passions: Did you ever put a dream on hold? If you did it’s time to start reflecting again on what truly excites you. What brings you joy and a sense of fulfilment? It could be anything from writing, painting, or starting a business, to traveling the world or volunteering in your community.
  • Set SMART Goals: Transform your passions into fully actionable goals using the SMART framework. This  gives you a clear roadmap and a sense of direction. Remember to hold yourself accountable!

Craft Your Success Story: Build Your Roadmap to Success

  • Identify Your Resources: Take stock of your skills, experience, knowledge, and network. Surround yourself with positive, encouraging people who will celebrate your victories and support you through challenges. These are your most valuable assets,  ones you can leverage to achieve your goals.
  • Research and Plan: Start at the end. Where will you be in 3 months, 1 year, 2 years from now?  Work backwards as you do your research. Explore everything that interests you. Create a plan to move forward. This could involve taking courses, seeking a mentor, networking with others.
  • Create Actionable Steps: Don’t feel overwhelmed by big goals – keep thinking big if you want to see and experience big! Break goals into manageable steps that you can take one at a time. Read a great book called The One Thing, by Gary Keller, you won’t be disappointed. Celebrate your progress everyday!
