Today I want to talk to about a topic I only just learned about recently and wanted to share it with all of you, and that is – embracing the beginner mindset.

I found this whole concept facinating because if you really think about we are all guilty of it. Even to this day I am guilty of it. When we are a beginner we are almost embarrassed about our lack of knowledge. It’s almost we feel we should already know about what we are trying to learn. Sounds confusing right but I bet it makes sense!
I will give you an example. I have started up my YouTube channel – Linda Roche. I am really enjoying it and getting great feedback. However I still feel inadequate and embarrassed almost thats it’s not as fancy as some channels that have been running for almost 10 years! This is silly. I know that they were exactly where I am when they were beginning their YouTube carreer but there is still that feeling isn’t there?
I think when I heard about the beginner mindset I related it too it so strongly because I feel I am a beginner in different areas of my life and career right now. My Instagram – Linda Roche – Is growing all the time and I have made wonderful friends on it but it is still very small by comparison to many other accounts.
All these things I should be proud and excited about rather than feeling like I should be where other people are when they have been doing it much longer than me!
Embracing the beginner mindset is such a wonderful idea and really makes so much sense when you think about it. The more you embrace it, the more you will enjoy it, the quicker you will learn and the faster you will grow.
You will be more focused on what you can learn as a beginner rather than feeling uncomfortable or even wasting time trying to hide your “beginner” status.
How I plan to embrace my beginner mindset from now on
- I am not going to try and hide my newness or pretend to be more knowledgable than I am.
- I am going to try and learn from people that inspire me as much as I can.
- I will try to grow my channels while embracing them and enjoying them as much as I can.
- I ‘m to share the knowledge I pick up along the way to other people beginning their journey so we can all feel included and help each other out!!
