Mindfulness Growth Mindset and Neuroscience for Success

Mindfulness, growth mindset and neuroscience are three deeply interlinked subjects. Mindfulness and growth mindset is often considered as the major source of contentment and happiness in life. Life may try to knock you down but if you are persistent with your passions and cultivate resilience, grit, tenacity and endurance success will come. Mindfulness improves resilience, grit, personal strength, and organizing and structuring skills of life. This article gives an overview of  mindfulness, growth mindset and neuroscience for success. 

Mindfulness and Success Quotes

Resilience is your ability to deal with the ups and downs in life and bounce back from them. Grit is your motivational drive that keeps you on a difficult task over a sustained period of time. Growth mindset is a mindset that perceives challenges as an opportunity to learn and evolve rather than an obstacle to overcome. We are constantly evolving as we are interacting with the world. Mindfulness and growth mindset drives our evolution faster and on right tracks [1].

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is noticing what’s happening right now with your thoughts, in your body, and in the environment without judgement. You can practice mindfulness anytime – when you’re in the shower, planning your day, or washing the dishes. And every time you practice, you make a small shift toward more courage, calm, clarity, and perseverance. To be an mindful person you need to exhibit witnessing and non-judging qualities on a consistent basis. 

Witnessing:

Witnessing and self-distancing are the best tools for effective mindfulness. By practicing  witnessing, you can distance yourself from your mental tendencies. Your thoughts, emotions, and mental problems are transformed, by their merging in the silence and peace of the witness. You can sit for 10 to 15 minutes of mindfulness meditation. Turn your attention to the contents of your mind; the internal chatter and the images arising and dissolving  in your mind. You can label your thoughts and images. Always maintain an attitude of a detached and kind observer.

How Om Meditation Improves Creativity

How Om Meditation Improves Creativity

Creativity needs relaxed, spacious, sharp, and clear mindset. Om meditation makes our mind spacious, relaxed, sharp and clear. 

Creativity is essential for success in every endeavor of life. Being creative will help you to stand out from the crowd. Om meditation will show you a way for new thinking. It can give you the ability to challenge the status quo and redefine the boundaries.  

Om meditation provides us the capacity to come out of the autopilot mode. It helps us to find the hidden patterns in chaos. It helps us to make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena, and to generate new solutions for complex problems. 

 Om Meditation and Creativity

Om meditation is not just a technique. It is a set of ancient tools that connect you with the higher dimensions. As you get your connection to the higher source, your creativity increases. Creativity is to create something new with original ideas to resolve complex problems. Often creative solutions are different from the traditions. The journey of creativity is not linear. Often you need to change the line of your thoughts and for that you need insights and visions. 

In the modern volatile and complex environment sometimes plans do not work as devised. What will you do? The ability to adapt, the ability to pivot, is crucial in every sphere of modern life.  Here, "pivoting" refers to the ability to completely change course when something isn't working out. A successful pivoting lies in your ability to execute your new plans with as much insight and passion as you had for the original. Om meditation improves your power of pivoting and adaptability.

Day 9: Art of Non-doership and Self-Distancing

Surrendering doership is an important yoga practice. You have the right to do your duty, but the results are not dependent on your efforts. There are numerous factors that come into play in determining the results. The witnessing power within you is your true self and your doership feeling is the ego. Mindfulness  is the art of non-doership and self-distancing from the ego. Ego has two components attachment and aversion. Self-distancing is creating distance from the ego and it is becoming a distant observer of what’s happening.

Self-distancing and non-doership

When you use more first-person words "I or me" you become more in self-immersion mode and in reactive mindset. When you use more non-first-person words like "you, they, she, he, others" you become more in self-distancing mode and mostly in procative mindset and ego-decentered mind with wiser and less biased judgments.

Day 8: Living in Harmony with the Universe

Harmony is the smooth flow of life. Harmonious living means, establishing balance with the internal world and external world. Our internal world is full with thoughts, emotions, memories and beliefs.

Harmony and Mindfulness

To establish the connection with the higher fields of consciousness, we need to make peace with our-self. To make peace with our-self, we need to thoroughly know the consciousness that is housed in our limited physical body, within the five senses and the three dimensions of reality. We need to drop the imaginary mental formations - our habit patterns.

To establish the connection, we need to open the higher channels of our consciousness. Different experiences gradually develop various reactions in the body-mind complex, which creates unconscious habit patterns. These habit patterns are the true bondage in the journey towards enlightenment. The habit patterns keep the channels of our consciousness closed - especially higher channels. Closed channels create fragmented consciousness.

Mindful living is a conscious way of living - noticing the beauty of life in every moment. Mindfulness is the doorway to live in harmony with the Universe. Mindfulness creates harmonious consciousness. Mindfulness helps us to live in harmony with our thoughts, words and actions.

Mindfulness is the doorway to live in harmony with the Universe.

Day 7: Art of Accessing Inner World Without Meditation

What is the procedure for accessing inner world without meditation? Normally inner world is accessed through Poetry, Narrative. Literature, Music, open-eye-meditation and Visual Art.  Here, I am giving below the thirteen ways to access your Inner World without formal meditation. The 1st Step of accessing the inner world is to understand your nonconscious, subconscious and unconscious mind. Inner world is deeply related with who and what we are and what we think and believe and what we feel. Inner world is the world where all creation started. The thirteen ways for accessing your Inner World are:

1. Choose your path according to your nature; Choose your path, based on your nature; all path’s lead to divinity. All paths are divine because you are divine.

2. Help others and do service for the benefits of other:  Try to help others that will bring more meanings to your life. If you think you are trapped in one negative situation of life, helping others will bring you out from the negative situations of life. It is working selflessly for the good of all without any expectation of reward, name, fame or even recognition.

3. Bring perfection on your action. If your focus is on right action, action for the greater good, offering this action without attachment, you will arrive in the light. You are light.

4. Understand Inter connectedness and oneness: To understand the inter connectedness you need to move to the deepest levels of your feelings beyond the physical senses andlearn to stand and act in our own truth.

5. You are more than your physical senses. Simply know that there is so much more, infinitely more, beyond what can be seen, felt, heard by your physical senses.
