Changing your mindset for the better is crucial for success. A growth mindset allows you to have the power to evolve into your best possible version. Such a mindset can help you overcome many hurdles in your journey. But the fact is that acquiring a growth mindset is a daunting task. Dr. Sam Qurashi is here to guide people to overcome the emotional obstacles that hamper them from succeeding in life.
Dr. Sam is a brilliant former psychiatric resident and a popular influencer on social media. His unique thought process and study of the human mind have enabled him to create a massive impact on the lives of thousands of people. Being a staunch believer of “ Education over medication”, even though he does acknowledge the benefits of psychiatric medication, he does not support the use of overmedication in psychiatry, as it prevents people from learning to become more mentally and emotionally resilient. He aims to educate the masses on human behavior and how to tame the mind by understanding it.
According to Dr. Sam, professionals from all walks of life try to achieve perfection in their tasks. That can be overwhelming for some, leading them to procrastinate and avoid exhibiting their potential. He believes that one of the best ways to overcome procrastination is by eradicating the desire for perfection. Know that if you wait longer in managing and completing your tasks, they will not get any easier but only waste your precious time. There is never a more perfect time to pursue the initiation and completion of a task than the present moment.
Procrastination stems from the avoidance of failure to achieve success. This flawed approach prevents you from seizing the opportunity and performing.
“Failure is an inevitable stepping stone towards success. By trying to avoid failure, we’re trying to avoid making mistakes. The irony here is that we’re trying to avoid the very thing that brings us closer to what we want. To avoid making mistakes is to avoid the lessons they carry. Without these lessons, we wouldn’t be able to master the skills necessary to achieve the success we want.”
Following Dr. Sam’s insights on overcoming procrastination by adopting a growth mindset and embracing failures, can help you overcome this common battle of the mind that has gripped thousands of people and has been the major cause of stagnancy in their lives.
