to give you a detailed explanation about what mindset and what attitude are and firstly we will be talking about mindset where I'm going to give you two different theories or two different approaches about mindset the first Theory it's a task based approach and will help you to break down a goal in different smaller manageable phases it is designed as a goal setting go achieving approach mindset approach and the second theory on mindset it's a binary system that will give you an easy psychological tool for you to apply on your belief system they will complement each other as we will see these two ways of understanding mindset they means that you will get and have a capacity of insight and perspective different inside a perspective inside because you will have insight on your goals and the process and the whole goal setting describing an achievement process it will help you to have a perspective on the different parts of your goal to help you achieve your goal ficient li and it will give your perspective on what the what's the best type of mindset to have or to adopt on the broader sense i will then proceed we're talking about attitude and give you a detailed definition on the second part of this video now I would like to introduce you to the mindset theory of action phase this is based on the work done by Peter gollwitzer in this system when talking about mindset we have to have goal in mind what we have in mind is the goal setting is thriving and achievement processes this theory is concerned with the different steps that they go from desiring to achieving a goal the achievement of a go starts from a desired and ends with the action outcome this is a horizontal line that has different action phases and the individual has to successfully complete each segment to reach the desired outcome mindset in this context are the cognitive processes or orientations that allow for easy completion of a different action phases it is the way you acquire knowledge and process information that allows you to complete an action phase and in turn helps you to move towards the chosen goal let's see you have the point A to point Z the beginning to the end the beginning of the point a is the desire where the desire comes from your goal and it we went in the point set the point that will be the outcome the action outcome between point A to point Z you have different action phases you have different steps that you have to go through you have the b c d e f up to that so from the whole process from A to Z started from desire an ending on action outcome it will be separate will be divided in different segments segments in different action phases and in in order to reach the next action phase the next segment you have to successfully complete the current phase that you are you earning for instance you start from desire you have to decide then you have to plan then you have to act and when you're acting there are different stages of argot you you if you have we want to achieve a specific goal you break down into different phases and then you have to go from face to face and complete them successfully in order to achieve your goal in order to get to that to the action outcome but when you get there you have to see has this go be achieved or not you have to question yourself there's a whole process if not you may have to go back and it happens as well in each action phase when you finish an action phase okay we got there is it successfully completed if not what can be done should I go back should I change my strategy it will depend on the result mindset is the way you are quiet knowledge and process information it's also related to the way you put the information into action mindset here are three different steps okay the approach of mindset is the way you are quiet information the way you processes information and the way you put this information into action so the first step is how do white acquire knowledge no I have to gather the information in order to achieve my goal so this is the first step the second step is when I have this information when I have this knowledge how do i process this knowledge in the most efficient way in the best way possible and finally when I gather the knowledge I need when I process this knowledge I have to put this knowledge into action into practice I have to act on what I have learned on what I have processed so this is the third phase and very important the mindset in this context will change from step to step I will have to adopt a different mindset depending on the different stage of go settings driving achievement ironing it will be different when I'm gather information when I'm learning when a accumulating knowledge I have to have a specific mindset that is them that will help me to acquire knowledge for disease-specific outcome in the most efficient way then when I'm the second stage and processing the information my mindset has to be specific as well I will have to change my approach I have to change the mindset I have the set of attitudes I have depending upon the stage so I'll be having a mindset specific to process this information to decide to say okay what should I keep what I should live what's the best way what's the best outcome was the best route and when I have decide it's time for the third third step is putting all this information into action and then it needs a specific set of attitudes so it will be different the mindset the set of attitudes that I have when I'm gather information it may be different from the mindset from the set of attitudes that I will have when I'm putting this information to practice mindset is the state of mind that allows you to go from point A to B to C in the most efficient way it is the mental state that helps you to complete the necessary steps the necessary tasks to go from the current to the next testing action phase mindset is the state of mind that will help you to go from point A to B to C in the most efficient way it is the mental state that helps you to complete the necessary tasks to go from the current to the next distinct action phases as you see the mindset will be the state of mind will be the set of attitudes that I will have that will help me to go from segment to segment through my goal in the most efficient way for you to get the mindset theory of action phase and put it into practice you needs to understand also a model for go setting an achievement called the Rubicon model of action phases and those who they go together and I am going to explain you why in the in this mindset theory so you have a specific mindset for a specific stage of your goal now on the Rubicon model of action phases you get your goal and you're going to divide your go into different segments and you're going to identify each of this segment and then you get these you have different segments of your goal that you're going to divide and they are recognized will identifiable you know where you are from the process from A to Z that's what the Rubicon model of action phases thus it helps you to divide this or go let's divide my goal into 3 for X phases ok and now I can I know where I am oh my goal what's the steps that I have to take what's the phase that I'm in and the mindset theory of action phase also has a specific mindset that they will go and fix to each specific stage that you're in your goal so from one side you have your goal from another side you have the specific mindset you have a specific phase of your goal that you need to have a specific mindset for it and then you put these two theories together ok the Rubicon model it helps you to divide you're going different segments and identify from desiring from you starting your goal to achieving your goal and it also helps you to separate and to identify the motivation and the your ability to make your own decisions in order to achieve your goals to better understand the rubicon model and its context I will share you a story okay it's about Julius Caesar's story when he finished he is victorious on the Gallic Wars he goes to Europe he fights the Gallic tribes in Europe and he wants to go back okay this is their year 52 before Christ and when Jesus is want to go back there is a problem he is a governor for Rome and he as a governor he can lead troops and he will he wanted to to go to Rome to get elected for senator so there's a rule there was a ruling room saying that no governor should enter Rome with his troops it is one rule and another rule was that for you to go to elections as a senator you should be physically present here on what happens is a governor has legal immunity so as long as your governor the Roman governor no one can touch you however you cannot enter Rome if you are with your troops and Giroux Caesars was told don't enter Rome with your troops otherwise it will be an act of treason now they the way they got around this because it was normal that a governor a Roman governor would go to the Senate however he would step down before he would enter Roman Rome as a private seat and then he would enter elections be a senator but it wasn't an option for Julius Caesar for for many reasons and one reason was his legal immunity and his dispute with other powers Ingram so what he does he he goes with his troops apathy stories they're up to a certain point they're the Rubicon River is a shallow river and Judas easily stopped that and he thinks okay what the decision I should take now I'm going to go or not go to Rome and his decision is to enter Rome the border that he wasn't allowed to cross was this this river called Rubicon and then he decides to cross the river and the outcome is Civil War and he becoming senator the Rubicon model is named after this event as in each phase of action specific boundaries they have to be crossed to allow an individual to go to the next stage and when Cesar decides to cross the Rubicon River he entered a point of no return the Rubicon models questions related to how people choose their goals what is the planning involved how people act and how they evaluate the outcome of their actions the different phases related to goal setting achievement they start from desiring and ends with achievement as I said now I'm going to talk about the phases of setting achievement related to the Rubicon model I will then link it the different types of mindset needed to successfully complete each task by understanding these concepts you will have an insight on how goal-oriented tasks work addressing these four questions how people choose their goals what is the plan involved how people act and how they evaluate the outcome of their actions as well now it's time to look at the four different phases of a go according to the Rubicon model a go can be divided in four different distinct phases okay how you look at it we look at action and we look at decision first you have to decide then you have to act okay so these four stages are before I make a decision when I desire in between I desire something and outcome or when I have to choose between different outcomes its before I make a decision then I will decide what outcome I want what go to take then I have to take action on what I have decided and finally after the action I have to look back and forth and see what's the outcome what's the consequences of my actions so the four different phases according to the Rubicon model are prey decision of phase before making a decision pause decision of phase after making a decision action of phase when I act on my goal and finally post pause action phase is after I acted then I look at what what what are the results the precision of faith it's when I'm choosing between potential grows before making a decision present cause of one's desire are considered by assessing how much the goal is desired and how feasible it is I have a desire big enough and it has to be possible to achieve a goal the pred decision of faith is related to how much I desire ago and how feasible it is the second phase is the pause decision of faith it's concerned with choosing the implementation of a potential goal after deciding what go to pursue it's the time to decide when where and how the goal will be implemented this is a planning phase where I detail the specifics what has to be implemented in order to achieve the goal I have decided what I want to do now I have to make a plan where is it going to happen when is it going to happen and how is it going to happen next now is the action of faith I have to act on what I have decided what I have been planning in the action of faith it's time to take action it's when one progress towards the goal by acting on the plan with the intention of completing each phase successfully this is very important each step has to be completed successfully in order to go to the next stage when you are acting you also have different process you have from A to B to C to D absolute to death in this action of phase from for you to go from point A to point B you have to complete successfully complete point a go to point B each point B C up to the end and finally is the post action of faith is the last phase of stages according to the Rubicon model and this time there is time of assessing the outcomes after the action is completed the outcome is evaluated by looking at how each action has been performed and what still needs to be done to achieve the desired outcome if applicable in this phase I look backwards to to evaluate the outcome of my actions and also look forward to see what you have to be done now we see that we have four phases okay you have pre-decision pause the seasonal action and pause action and each phase is a specific when I'm choosing between goals when I choose a go then I choose to go I plan on the goal and then I have to act on the plan and finally I have to look back and see what happened is it successfully what's the outcome am I happy if not what has to be done how can I go to the next level the mindset now is how they mindset theory of action phase and Rubicon model they get together cause the Hamada has this four different phases and the mindset for each stage each phase of the webcam model they will be specific okay for you have four phase for the precision of phase you have a specific mindset that will help you to achieve this phase more more efficiently for the post decision you have the action of phase and the action of fails on pause decision phase is a different approach the the mindset the mental attitude that will have to have when you're acting on your goal it is different compared to when you are planning and finally when you're looking back the way you're looking at the goal the way how you're looking back and forwards assessing the outcome of your actions it's a specific way of seeing as well now it's time to talk about the four different mindset types each one is specific for the rubicon model phases that we have spoken about they are four the first one is deliberative the second is implemental the third is action and the fourth is evaluative and as I go through the theory you will see that it makes sense because when you start when you desire and we are choosing between goals you're thinking about you're deliberating what action to take what to choose then you have to implement so we have to have a mindset this implemental was the best way to implement what have just chosen and then you have action it's about action action you need a mindset specific to put things into practice to action what have the side and finally you have to evaluate in the post action of faith you have to evaluate the outcome the consequences of your action so you have a mindset day that is evaluate now we are going starting with the first mindset which is the deliberative mindset it's related to the precision of faith when an individual chooses between potential goals a deliberative mindset is used when you are engaged in a long and careful consideration in order to decide what's the best choice to make this is the first step of goal-setting you have the option to pursue different goals and before deciding which go to embrace you carefully consider each option this is related to disability and feasibility here you are concerned with how much you desire go compared to all the other options then you gather the information and assess the positive and negative consequences of the outcomes to do so you have to have relevant information to make a reliable estimation of the outcomes when you are gathering information and evaluating it it's helpful to have an open mind Innis towards the knowledge you are acquiring and processing it is also helpful to be impartial when considering different options the goal has to be desired but also feasible you want to pursue a goal that's possible to be achieved it has to allow the individual to evaluate the information with accuracy and to deliberate impartially now the mindset has to allow the individual to approach this faith with an open mind with accuracy and impartiality okay we see that we are going to evaluate between positive and negative outcomes we have to have an open mind to see all the different options and see what is the best options and you have also to have impartiality you cannot have bias between choosing 100 their option once the decision has been made about which go to pursue it's time to choose the best way to implement it the implementation of mind set is concerned with the information related to time space and action by answering the following questions when is it going to happen where is it going to happen and how is it going to happen now very important now it's not time to be concerned of the go or if they go inside the desirable or feasible you have decided what go is now these questions have been settled in the previous phase the mindset has to be focused narrowed the NGO itself and on the opportunities to initiate action when planning the implementation of these steps to achieve your goal you have to be optimistic about how the desirable feasible it is now it's time to say let's do it the third mindset is the action of mindset related to the action of phase acting on the chosen go the action of mindset is when you take action and you are going to be single-minded focused on your goal you act on your plan without being concerned about if it's desirable feasible or if there are other ways to execute the tasks you don't want that you did it in phase one and two now it's the time to be fully immersed in what you're doing and the single thought in your mind is to achieve the goal the mindset for this phase is closed to any information that could shake your belief system or could make you re-evaluate your goal this mindset is attuned to cues that drive you towards the attainment of the tasks being performed excluding pay attention excluding what can make you re-evaluate your goal and finally we have the evaluative mindset related to the post action phase now we talk about assessment of outcome at this phase you are going to look at the results of your efforts you've deliberated you have planned you have acted as a result you now have the fruits of your outcome the evaluative mindset in this phase is concerned with the results and consequences of your action and how it compares to your expectations you have to evaluate if your go has been reached and if the results are satisfactory you evaluate the results by comparing the estimated outcome desired in the phase well the preposition of phase adopting a deliberative mindset with the actual outcome and consequences of your action the questions that you could ask here is is a Goa chief for first question if it's not why what can be done then you may have to go back to phase 3 to act again if the goal has been achieved how the results compared to expectation what have I learned what could be done better the mindset in this phase has to allow you to evaluate the results with an impartial approach allowing you to assess the quality of the outcome the type of mindset that can help you to achieve your goals efficiently has to be impartial critical and open mind as we see when we are deliberating about what course of action to take you have to have an open mind you have to see different options and be impartial then when your planning you have to be more focus you have to be specific and we have to see different possibilities and what the outcome are but we are not concerned about other options about other goals we have chosen the goals already now you're just specific about planning and finally we act we are focused single-minded and when you get the fruits of work it's time to evaluate now we are going to review the fixed verse growth mindset theory developed by Carol Dweck it focuses on implicit beliefs and individual holds about her abilities when trying to understand they believe that students hold about her intelligence to act not this a pattern where some students were obsessed about the love of intelligence and it was evident in a particular way they thought about it the whole idea of worrying about intelligence and trying to document it all the time implies that the student think of it as a fixed concrete thing on her research she documented that some students hold a belief that they only have a certain amount of intelligence that it's fixed and cannot increase so the strategy is to better show that they have enough intelligence if that was their belief or to hide their love of intelligence if their perception is that they don't have enough of it it's called fixed mindset in contrast all the students are excited about learning new things trying the same things in a different way and are willing to be challenged what makes the students oriented towards learning is a different way of thinking about the intelligence their focus on developing their intelligence which implies that they think of it as a dynamic malleable quality something that can be cultivated through their efforts it's called growth mindset according to the theory of mindset indications of success are love of learning new things willingness to embrace challenges and persistence when facing obstacles and people with a growth mindset show these characteristics the fixed vas growth theory of mindset is a type of philosophy of life where with a growth mindset we hold the belief that we can cultivate our intelligence our ability our skills it's about the way we see ourselves and the belief we have on our capacity to evolve and grow we can apply this mindset to our daily life by looking at the world as a place of opportunities by asking ourselves how can we do things better by having less rigid judgments about ourselves and our ability Carol Dweck psychologist and creator of the fix versus growth mindset she says that depending on the way people view themselves it will have a significant impact on the outcome of their life a fixed mindset assumes that creativity character and intelligence are static and cannot be changed in a meaningful way however a growth mindset thrives on challenge and see failure as opportunity to grow the excess that we manifest this mindset from a very early age and they influence our life in several aspects how you see yourself effects the way you live your life it affects you the outcome of your actions by helping all abstracting you from reaching your goals by changing from a fixed to a growth mindset it can have profound effects in individual success this view of mindset can be helpful when we look at ourselves and see that we have potential for growth and we believe that there is untapped potential in our abilities that we can learn more that we can do better that we can be a better person and that we can do things in a different way that we can learn from our our mistakes that we have potential that we can learn more that we don't consciously we are not consciously aware of all our potential it's like a fixed mindset is like looking at life of as a glass that's half-empty and the growth mindset looking at life as a glass half-full this approach helps you to see the unlimited potential that there is in the human being and your capacity is greater than what you can acknowledge you can take one of two approach when thinking about your abilities one approach is to think that your abilities are fixed and you cannot change the circumstances in life people with this type of mindset would avoid challenges give up easily or not accept constructive criticism when they fail they identify themselves with the failure and they say I am a failure when there's a bad weather they let it negatively impacting influence their emotions when they confront a part of the personality that they don't like they don't try to change it the other gross approach is based on the understanding that in nature life grows as much as possible a tree will grow as tall as it can be challenges are opportunities for growth and criticisms are ways to look at ourselves from someone else's perspective when you fail you don't identify yourself with failure you separate yourself from the act of failing you don't let the weather factor of mood you choose the way you feel because you can separate yourself from the internal and the external environment and if you face your dioxide you confront and transform it in this first episode in this first part we have looked at mindset and analyzed two different theories the first theory is a goal-oriented world where we look at goal-setting ago achievement and what the different stages and phases of a goal and what's the mindset that is best is specific for if each phase that it will help me to achieve my goal in a more efficient way and the second mindset the fix first growth mindset you see that there are two different approach overall approach on how to see our potential one is that our potential is limited and the second one is that there is opportunity for growth that we can learn more than you can learn from our mistakes and you can do things in a different way in the second part of this first episode we are going to be looking at attitude and also we are going to look at attitude in a very detailed way so I will see you the next part you
