Your frame of mind is important when you are making critical decisions like whether to use a drug or not. If you’ve reached a crossroads where you’re thinking about taking a drug, there are things about your mindset worth considering.
Adopt a Growth Mindset
Our thoughts determine and influence our actions. When we have a fixed mindset, we falsely convince ourselves that we’re unable to cope, we can’t do this, or we won’t do well. In comparison, a growth mindset allows room for positivity, progress, and confidence moving forward.
Anyone can learn to refocus his or her approach to thinking. When you catch yourself doubting your strength, pause to remember how far you’ve come, and how much you still stand to gain from working towards your goals.
