In honour of World Mental Health Day on Saturday 10th October, we hear from Head of Coaching, Jo Rix, as she explains the difference between being in an improve or prove mindset.
“To prove is to demonstrate that something is true or viable; while improve is to make something better, to increase the value or productivity of something”
Life is about growing and improving and getting better. The key to happiness always depends on your progress towards growth and constantly working on yourself.
95% of people in the world are actually busy in proving mode while only 5% of people in the world are actually busy improving themselves.
Imagine if you live your life trying to prove yourself, constantly trying to seek validation of a self-fulfilling prophecy. Imagine the behaviours you might display, a constant desire to prove yourself to everyone and everything. How might that feel?
Improving is a continuous process of learning and growth. The subtle difference is seeking to be curious about getting better at something.
Life should be constantly under construction because there is always something to improve. When we strive for becoming better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.
So, understand about Proving vs Improving, believe in working on yourself for being better day by day.
Which one are you? And how is that impacting your well-being? Out to prove yourself or out to improve yourself?
