Mindset and Heartset - a crucial message !

“The focus on mindset has even deeper roots. If we go back to the Enlightenment from the late 1600’s to the early 1800’s, the key message from the great thinkers of that time was to celebrate the power of the mind and all that it could accomplish. It’s not an accident that this era was also known as the “Age of Reason.” The mind is of course a powerful vehicle for driving amazing insights and accomplishments and should be celebrated. But there’s a risk that we reduce everything to the mind. It’s all about ideas and reason. The body is just a distraction or, at best, something to be nurtured because it holds our mind. Life is so much more complicated than that.”
