Education Vs. Mindset Which is more important?
Some of y’all might have caught my Facebook video about this topic and other might not have which is why I wanted to write about it for today’s Mentorship Monday post.
What do you think? Right now do you feel that having more CEU’s and spending time learning is more important or your mindset?
For me personally, I struggled with not believing in myself as a dietitian when I first started out. I kept having clients in at the gym I worked at not get the results they hoped for, and I felt like the worst dietitian ever. This left me searching for more and more CEU’s and more education to feel better and see if I could learn more to be a better dietitian. Also, I was the only RD at the facility and no support feeling like a failure and all alone and kept searching for education to figure it out. I slowly learned that what was missing was my mindset and the belief in myself that what I know about nutrition to be true
YOU NEED TO BELIEVE IN YOUR OWN SELF WORTH BEFORE ANYONE ELSE CAN SEE IT
So how many letters after your name do you believe it will take before someone believes you are as valuable as any other member of the medical/wellness team? I am curious because I know we all have amazing training in school and once we go through our internships we have been around clients, so what will help to build the confidence in your skills too? I went from my internship to running the nutrition department of a hospital, then helping open a fitness faculty to opening my own private practice and worked hard during each phase. I am here writing this because I believe you can do all this too, but do you?
So what is really holding you back from your dream job?
Of course, there are exceptions to this phrase, but in terms of your personal and business success, why not see what your best can be? SEEK tough, challenging situations that you’ve never experienced before. Situations where you might fail. One of two things can happen – you can either end up victorious in your pursuits, and gain confidence, or realize you’re ability level isn’t there yet – but you will have gained a target to shoot for. Failure is never a reason to give up – it just helps you figure out a better way. Have the mindset of a challenge seeker and your ceiling is endless!
