Shifting from a mindset of "getting ahead"
to a mindset of "coming alive."
Dani Shapiro was being interviewed on The Unmistakable Creative, a podcast I listen to, and she referenced this "from/to" as a cultural shift she is seeing.
It sparked me immediately, as it feels like what I've been doing in my own life since leaving my corporate career behind. Although, in my case, there was probably a stage in-between where I went from a mindset of "getting ahead" to a stage where I was focused on "staying afloat" or "surviving." This was the period when I was trying to work full time and raise young children at the same time.
But now, I love the notion of "coming alive" as the driving mindset for the next period.
Isn't that a lovely notion? Imagine if everybody started shifting their mindset in this way. I wonder what the world would be like.
Had to share this little spark.
Hope it sparks for you too!
