People who Live Their Lives with Gumption, take 100% personal responsibility for their thoughts, actions, and interactions with others. Your thoughts are your mindset.
The two foundations of a Gumption mindset are optimism and helpfulness.
Optimism is the way you view the world at large. It’s the lens through which everything is seen. It’s a belief that we’re all connected, everything happens for a reason, and there are no coincidences. A Gumption mindset believes that opportunities exist everywhere and that a positive attitude enables opportunities to be discovered and manifested.
Helpfulness is the way you approach people individually. It’s the spirit in which everything is done. It’s a desire to serve others for the benefit of the group. The Healers Prayer begins I am here only to be truly helpful. A Gumption mindset believes that helping others is the way a person best helps himself and the world.
When Forrest Gump helped a fellow classmate who dropped her book, he was optimistic that things could change.
He helped her, he helped himself, he helped us.
Is your glass half full?
Are you helping yourself and the world by helping others?
