Mindset is, without any doubt, your biggest asset. There can be all the tools and strategies in place, but when your mindset isn't on board, that can really turn things down. 'But how to work on my mindset?' you might ask. How to get out of that loop of carnival of negative thoughts and self-sabotaging noises? Isn't it too much work anyways? Well, all your questions are in place.

However, mindset work does not need to be scary and frustrating. It can actually be super fun, and it surely feels rewarding after you invest some time, energy, and effort into it.

Let's take a look at 7 easy ways to develop a flourishing mindset that I prepared for you.

Watch your thoughts.

Watching over your thoughts is an essential part when it comes to improving your mindset. Your thoughts create your reality, and honestly, with over 6.000 thoughts a day, you might not be aware of what kind of party is happening inside there. You want to control your thoughts and your mental activity because that determines your internal vibration, which creates your deep beliefs, which cause you to take action (or be passive), giving you results (or don't). Look at your results, and if they are not to your liking, you need to start taking care of the root - your thoughts.

Don't believe all your thoughts.

Another important point is not to believe everything that pops up in your mind. Most of your thoughts are just a product of your old programming, and social conditioning passed on to you, often based on your previous experiences, which have nothing to do with actual truth. Remember: ''Everything is. You make it what it is.'' This powerful saying has so much meaning and value. Nothing is bad or wrong. You make it what it is for you. You can choose what meaning you give to your thoughts, and that hugely affects your mindset. Every single thought can be rejected or refused if it's not serving you well. Don't believe all your thoughts, but surely watch them very closely.

Filter out the junk.

Either you realize it or not, you can filter out what you don't want to keep in your mental space, which eventually influences your mindset. Through your first part of your mind, the conscious mind, which is both inductive and deductive, you can choose what thoughts you accept and which ones you reject, ignore, or refuse. Not everything that comes in needs to be accepted by you and stay. If certain thought feels harmful, destructive, or discouraging, you can filter it out before putting emotions into it. You have this choice in the first place. Once the thought has been internalized and entertained with emotions that impresses it to the subconscious part of the mind, from there, it is hard to take it out. Your subconsciousness is only deductive, so everything you will feed it with will stay. Therefore that first choice through a conscious mind really matters. You can learn about the differences between conscious and subconscious minds in my article here.


Develop the 'Art of Reframing.'

One of the tools and practices I swear by is 'Art of Reframing.' If you can find opportunity in every problem, you win. Your change in perspective, in your attitude, changes everything. When you change the way you look at things, things you look at change. If you adapt the attitude that every problem equally brings opportunity with itself, you open your mind to new possibilities and potentialities instead of staying in that victimhood mentality that is certainly not helping. One of my favorites reframed phases: Life is always happening for you, not to you ;) Find opportunity in every challenge or difficulty, and you will be surprised how much you will thrive.


Your environment matters.

''Environment is more important than heredity.'' — Karl Menninger

Read this powerful quote from Karl Menninger again. People you are surrounded by have more to do with who you are than what's built into the genes at your birth. You can choose your environment. You can surround yourself with the people, books, programs, podcasts that are good for you.


This truly deserves attention because, especially when you work on your mindset when you are in the midst of breaking old beliefs, smashing through blocks, and completely shifting your state of being, your environment can hugely influence if it will go for the better or the opposite direction.

Be consistent and repetitive.

Mindset work is rather abstract until it's not. I mean that you might not see tangible results every day, but one day you wake up, and you realize you are living a different life because of all the mindset work you have done until that point in time. Everything counts—every minute of your time, effort, and energy you put into it. Being consistent, repetitive, and persistent truly pays off in the long run. People tend to give up way too early, claiming it is not working, but honestly, mindset work does not have a deadline. The journey is the goal. Falling in love with the process, trusting it, and keeping doing that mindset work daily always bring its rewards.


Know your go-to tips & tricks.

Knowing your go-to tips and tricks, aka creating that safe space when your mind is juggling up and down, will serve you very well. Often it takes only a little bit to calm your mind down and take your mindset under control before all the worst scenarios start playing in your head. It can be as simple as:

  1. Creating a short mantra that you can say out loud to yourself anywhere, you happen to be. Something like: 'All is well. I am safe, well, and protected.' That you can literally whisper to yourself, you can say it out loud in the car looking into your eyes in the mirror. You can write it down several times in your pocket diary or journal.

  2. Creating an audio file with recorded affirmations on your phone. Another great way to calm yourself down is to use the power of audio and affirmations. It is also a great way to not self-talk out loud or write this down on paper, especially when you are on the go. Having a file with pre-recorded affirmations can literally ground you and help you tap into your safe space.

  3. Always have your favorite song that calms you down on your phone; whatever song that has healing, calming, and soothing effects on you can be helpful in situations when your mind struggles. Few seconds can literally make wonders.

  4. Having essential oil or favorite scent handy. Through that, you connect to relaxation and good vibes, which can be another way to take your mind off chaos and help you cope with overwhelm. What you are doing here is creating clues for yourself that will calm you down through your senses. Essential oils are easy to carry around and can help you unwind in no time.

Final words:

Mindset work is a journey. It is an adventure on its own. It is one of those most rewarding and fulfilling accomplishments when you can witness how much to the good it influenced your life. And really, it does not have to be as scary as it might seem.


I want to encourage you to give it a try. Choose some of the tips I listed above and try for yourself. Observe, reflect and evaluate. But mostly, implement. Do not stop by reading it because true magic happens in actual implementation, repetition, and consistency.
