"Mindset Is Everything" Canvas Art by IKONICK.
How do you want to be seen? As a little fish in a big ocean, or as a shark?
The truth is, you control how others perceive you. You have the power to determine whether others see you as a fish or as a shark. It all spurs from your mindset.
In the ocean, fish stick together in "shoals." Each fish within the larger group has a better chance of finding food, finding a mate, and avoiding individual targeting by predators. The fish all swim in the same direction. Never straying. Never branching out. In fact, if a fish in the shoal appears or acts unique in any way, they become an easy target for predators.
It is safety in conformity. The 'fish' mindset.
Sharks, on the other hand, are completely individual. They roam the ocean without fear, going where they want, when they want.
Too often we fall into the 'fish' mentality. It is especially easy after experiencing setbacks in life. At some point the struggle becomes too much and we decide it is easier to accept our role as the victim than to continue to push toward the goal. We stop making decisions for ourselves and merely swim with the crowd.
But if we just flip our mindset, everything changes. If instead of taking a failure as evidence of some personal fault we view it as a chance to try again and do it better, we begin to see ourselves as the shark and not the fish.
And pretty soon, so does everyone else.
The fact is, no one sees beneath the surface. Perception is reality. However you come across to the people you meet, that becomes who you are in their mind. Use that. Present yourself as a shark and you will become one.
But remember: It's more than putting on an act. It's a total shift of your mindset. You have to truly see yourself as the shark before anyone else will. It starts with you.
The "Mindset is Everything" original canvas wall art from IKONICK challenges you to adopt the 'shark' mentality. Sure, it's easier to swim with the shoal. It's safer too. But who wants to live that life?
Take the risk. Change your mindset and become the shark.
