As athletes, we are all familiar with the benefits of physical training. We have experienced the fact that it is possible to transform our bodies and improve conditioning through exercise and diet. However, most people are unaware that it is possible to see the same levels of benefits and results when we train our minds. There are techniques we can practice, perspectives we can learn, and mental exercises we can perform that all lead to optimized mental performance. Mindset training is the process of adopting these methods and dedicating time to improving the most important tool we will ever have. Anyone with experience of mindset training knows there is something profound to be discovered about the ways we can improve our day to day experience, both cognitively and emotionally. It is possible to improve our ability to focus our attention, achieve our goals, and find real passion and fulfillment in our lives. The nuance of mindset training is that it's not just a list of action items or routines that we need to follow every day; it's much more about embracing an infinite mindset so we can find the tools and routines that work for us as individuals.

Ten years ago, the fitness industry as we know it did not exist. People were not sharing their workouts on social media and there were very few resources about training online. If you were someone who was heavily into training, that was the thing that defined you as a person. Fast forward to today and there are an endless number of websites, blogs, and social media personalities providing unlimited information about all different types of training and nutrition. If you are interested in getting in shape or finding a diet that works for you, the information is all right there and available. And it no longer defines you as a person; for athletes and recreationalists alike, training is just one part of our daily routines that keeps us balanced, grounded, and fulfilled. With physical training now commonplace, the next frontier for personal growth is in the mind.

Whether they were aware of it or not, every high performer in history has had a “training” routine for their mind. From elite athletes to successful entrepreneurs, they all have routines to train their mindsets and keep them motivated and innovative to continually outperform the competition. But there is no reason this should be unique to the world’s top athletes or CEOs. Anyone with experience of mindset training is aware of the profound difference it can make in their emotional and cognitive performance. Similar to what happend with fitness, mindset training is quickly moving from obscurity to mainstream.

Everyone begins at a different point in their mindset training, just like with fitness. An initial fitness goal might be to lose weight, gain muscle, or increase general health. We continue to adjust our training until these three factors are optimized, and then continue to level up in each of those categories. Mindset training analogously seeks to optimize three factors: motivation, creativity, and emotional regulation. We will explore all of the details of these factors, along with their many subcategories and how we can form training routines based on which we most want to improve.
