The Role of “Mindset” for Creatives in 2024

Congratulations, darling! You’re standing right in front of 2024, about to step into another beautiful chapter of your life. And now is the time to pause and revel in your achievements.

Wait, before you start downplaying your successes, saying, you didn’t work hard enough, or could have done just a bit more – stop right there. That’s not the way to cheer for yourself. 

As creatives, we tend to be quite hard on ourselves; our own toughest critics. We often focus on what we haven’t achieved rather than celebrating what we have. 

It’s time to change it and embrace a new kind of self-love. This isn’t about being overly confident or ignoring areas we can improve. It’s about acknowledging our efforts, honouring our growth, and recognising that our journey is unique and valuable.

So let’s talk about how to do that! 

How to Shift Your Mindset in 2024:

  1. Count Every Win, Big or Small: Remember that time you finished a project under pressure, or when you finally organised that messy drawer? Yes, those count! Every little victory is a step forward, and it deserves a round of applause.
  2. “It’s not failing, it’s learning”: Not everything might have gone as planned, and that’s okay. Take those less-than-perfect moments as learning experiences, not failures. Remember: those are valuable lessons! 
  3. Practice Daily Gratitude: Reflect on the people, moments, and experiences that brought joy and learning this past year. Gratitude is a powerful tool for a positive mindset and the best way to start your day!
  4. Visualise Your Next Steps: What’s next for you? Picture where you want to be this time next year – make it vivid and exciting. This vision will guide your actions and decisions.
  5. Set Realistic and Exciting Goals: Dream big but also be kind to yourself. Set goals that challenge and motivate you, but are also achievable with hard work and dedication.

Speaking of goals and mindset, have you ever considered how changing your mindset in 2024 could lead to your success? 

In our “Start and Grow your Business” course (coming March 2024) we don’t just talk about skills and strategies; we focus on cultivating a mindset that sees opportunities, learns from challenges, and celebrates every step of progress. It’s about building a mental framework that supports your journey towards achieving your dreams.

So, as we toast to your achievements in 2023, let’s get prepared for the adventures of 2024. If you’re ready to give your dreams the wings they deserve, our course might just be the perfect starting point.

At LCS we are here to support and help you with crafting the future you desire!

Stay tuned for more updates, and let’s make 2024 a year of growth, achievement, and joy. 

With love, The LCS Team
