5 Ways Your Mindset Equals Your Skill Set

In January, we have a theme about Mental Health & Well-Being here in the Resource Hub. The idea of monthly themes based on the cornerstone content pillars in Bøglund Lightworker Institute, are both created to help you navigate in the many articles in the Resource Hub, but also to make it way easier for me to plan the content calendar. 

It’s my mindset that influences how the content creation is mapped out. I have a slightly OCD brain, so I need structure and order in order to function. I have 3 platforms I’m creating content for:

It’s just easier if everything under the Bøglund Lightworker Institute tab is following the same theme. My personal Insta account is more on the go.

I believe in working smarter, not harder. There is no reason to reinvent the wheel when all we have to do is to tap into our mindset and look at what works best with the way our brain functions.

Our mindset is extremely important since it’s from your mindset your world begins. Every thought, every feeling, every action step… everything starts with your mindset. 

The consequence of this superpower is you are always 100% responsible for the outcome of your actions, your life and the reality you experience. 

The power of this superpower is that you have the full power and ability to change your mindset, and thereby all the things that don’t work in your life. This superpower is called The Power of the Subconscious Mind. I’m not going to get too much into the Power of the Subconscious Mind in this article. It’s a bit too complex – and in order to really understand the Power of the Subconscious Mind, it would require more than “just” a 1000-2000 words article. Let me know in the DM on Instagram @boglund_lightworkers if you would be interested in me creating some training in the Power of the Subconscious Mind.

#1 – Your Mindset Guides Your Actions.

Everything we do is the result of our thoughts and emotions. Not necessarily our most dominant thoughts and emotions, as I usually speak about. Those are what is influencing our Energy Frequency, which I will dive into in just a moment. I’m talking about the thoughts and emotions that come to us through the day, and sometimes make us act impulsive. The thoughts and emotions that lead to ideas and inspiration in our everyday life.

Where our most dominant actions lead to what we are manifesting in our life, our more regular actions are what we’re doing every day. 

To put it very bluntly; Your Mindset is influenced by two components:

  1. Spirit // Your Higher Self // God // The Power of Love – name it whatever fits for you.
  2. The Ego // Your Fear-Based Mind.

The Ego and the Fear-Based Mind will ALWAYS be the loudest ones, constantly trying to control you. The Power of Love and Your Higher Self will always be more subtle but always supportive, loving, and positive… without being a toady of course! It’s not the Power of Love’s job to feel sorry for you. The pity party is Ego’s job.

What I’m trying to say is, EVERYTHING you do is either led by Your Ego or Your Higher Self – either by fear or by love… and the choice is entirely up to you! Unfortunately, the way we tend to deal with things is often influenced by the people we surround ourselves with, our environment, community, media, and life experiences. But all that, my friend, are also choices we make! Usually on an unconscious level, though.

The way we choose to deal with things is always guided by how we perceive things.

#2 – Your Mindset Influences Your Ability to Learn New Stuff.

If you’ve been following my work for awhile and read my content, you’ll know that I’m a huge advocate of Mental Alchemy – the ability to turn something shitty into gold and gemstones by the power of the mind. My grandmom raised me that way, and it’s one of the “secrets” why I’m always getting back on my feet, no matter how much life tries to knock me down.

My dance teacher once told me, “Sabrina, you can do anything you want… sometimes you just need to take some time to learn it first!”

I believe it was Queen Ingrid of Denmark who once said something along the lines “Sometimes you cannot change the situation you’re in, but then it’s up to you to get the best out of whatever situation you’re in!” – My grandmom used this quote when I was complaining about school and homework. Instead of complaining about school and homework, my grandmom asked me to get the best out of it. Focus on the things I liked about school (I was 12 at this point, so the list of things I liked about school was very short 😅) and look forward to that when I was bored.

These are 3 examples of how people around me influenced my mindset about learning new things. 

And do you know what? 

It works!

I have survived a handful of Dark Nights of the Soul, 4 heavy depressions, domestic violence in my childhood, bullying, cutting, and being down a suicidal path.

I became a really good dancer and choreographer and became a dance assistant in my dance studio when I was just 7.

And I was an A student in school, and finished business college with a grade point average at 10.4 on the Danish grade scale – it’s a bit above B on the ECTS.

As Pippi Longstocking once said:

“I have never tried that before, so I think I should definitely be able to do that.”

Another classic quote is from Henry Ford:

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right,”

#3 – Your Mindset Influences Your Energy Frequency and Manifestations.

Whether you like it or not, YOU are the one who has manifested the reality you’re in right now! It’s your responsibility – because it’s the outcome of your thoughts, emotions and actions! As I said in the introduction, owning up to that responsibility is actually a good thing, because it gives you the power to change all the things you don’t like!

So, Manifestation 101:

The reality and life you are experiencing right now is the result of your most dominant thoughts and emotions, which together created your Energy Frequency!

Your Energy Frequency is constantly communicating with the Universe and the Universal Laws, including the famous Law of Attraction. Combined with your most dominant action steps, your Energy Frequency and the Universe are creating the circumstances, opportunities, events, etc. in your life. Then it’s up to your more conscious thoughts, emotions, and action to decide how you want to deal with the stuff you’ve attracted into your life.

Are you still following me, or have I lost you? 

It’s totally okay if you feel a little lost in this section! I don’t expect you to understand these things fully. Not because I think you are dumb, but because these things are in the realm of quantum physics and neuroscience. It takes years of study to fully comprehend all this, and yet, there is still so much we don’t know. This is still a very young topic for scientists! I have spent my entire life studying these things. I was only 3-4 years old when I started to ask questions about this, which annoyed my parents because they didn’t have the answers to my questions. Even my grandmom was short on answers to my big questions – and she was the real-life definition of the Wise Old Lady. 

So it’s totally okay if you don’t fully understand what I am saying – I do, however, try to take it as far down to earth as I possibly can.

To try to make it simple: 

Your subconscious mind (Your Most Dominant Thoughts, Emotions and Actions) is creating the opportunities, realities, events, and circumstances you experience in life.

Your conscious thoughts, emotions and actions are what brings it into full manifestation.

#4 – Your Mindset Influences Your Motivation.

We all know that we need the motivation to get anything done… even to get out of bed in the morning. Motivation is all about what’s going on between our ears! It’s our mindset that directly influences our motivation!

This is why Mental Alchemy and the basics of how manifestation works is so important for your success. Sometimes, the basic knowledge I just gave you about manifestation and your Energy Frequency is enough to motivate you to get things done – or change your mindset about things.

If your thoughts, emotions and words are negative, and you are telling yourself that working for what you want, then that would cause your lack of motivation. But if your thoughts, emotions and words are positive, and you’re telling yourself that it is possible to get what you want, then you’re more motivated and more likely to succeed.

Some people are motivated by the carrot, while others are motivated by the stick.

Some people are motivated by, what I call, “Shiny Objects”, while others are motivated by “not turning out like those people” – whomever “those people” are…

A part of my job is to be a “Motivational Speaker” and create content and products that are motivational for the Lightworkers who are attracted to my work. I’m trying to keep a healthy balance between the carrot and the stick, and I’m trying to avoid operating with “shiny objects”! However, I’m also very focused on keeping a non-judgmental mindset and approach to things. To me, us vs them makes absolutely no sense – and it’s so far away from benevolence and the Power of Love that are the key ingredients for a happy life.

#5 – Your Mindset Can Be Your Biggest Saboteur.

This is the very key!!! Your mindset can be your biggest supporter or biggest saboteur, all depending on if you come from a place of Love or from a place of fear.

If your thoughts, words, emotions and actions are led by your fear-based mind, the outcome will always be a failure – sometimes even turning into a massive dumpster fire!

I have made the rule in my life that I would never make any important decisions, private or professional if something is troubling me or I’m just having a shitty day. On the other hand, I also have another rule about not making any important decisions when I’m over-the-top happy. Being high on happiness endorphins can block you from using your logical and rational mind – and that can also lead you into trouble. 

What works for me personally is keeping a somewhat neutral emotional state of mind in my everyday life. I’m happy and focusing on my happiness, and I make an active effort to turn all the negative things into something positive. But I’m not walking around in la-la-land with blinkers, pretending that nothing bad ever happens. I don’t believe it’s healthy to live in denial and in a lie.

All this “positive thinking” that has been preached all over social media the last many years, is in my personal opinion a kind of brainwashing of yourself and denial. If you think all your problems will be solved by only thinking positive and pretending that they don’t exist, the problems will just start growing like debt. At some point, you can’t ignore them anymore and they will blow up in your face!

So my advice is to make an effort in turning the negative stuff into something positive while listening to and respecting what lessons the negative stuff is here to teach you. You can always learn something from every situation you’re in.
