When I was growing up in San Antonio, every Sunday after church and lunch at La Fonda, my parents and four brothers and I would head to our local independent bookstore. We were encouraged to pick out a book on any topic we chose: from French baking to amphibians to the nature of the cosmos. We never got tired of exploring new subjects or authors and got the message loud and clear: no matter your age, never stop learning!
Do you see yourself as locked in to how you do things … or are you open to change and growth (dubbed a “growth mind set”)?
This week I’m exploring, “Am I fixed or fluid in how I see myself and the world?” Watch a 2-minute video and join me:
Want to learn to be less rigid and more flexible? Neuroplasticity–the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life–is enhanced when we enjoy new types of physical exercise, when we pay attention (i.e. practice mindfulness) and when we learn and do new things. Want more? Read Why It’s Important to Do It Different. And, consider joining me Sunday afternoon Dec. 19th from 1-4:30 ET for SOVEREIGNTY: A Winter Self-Renewal Retreat where we’ll explore new ways of being and taking time for deep self-renewal, rest and sisterhood. The $79 early bird rate ends this week!
