26 - Embracing the Beginner’s Mind: How to Approach Learning with Curiosity and Openness

A Way of Thinking

26-07-2023 • 36 mins

Could your life use some fresh perspective?  What are you curious to explore?

In this episode, I dive deep into the concept of the beginner's mind, exploring the power of openness, curiosity, non-judgment, and flexibility. In Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind, Shunryu Suzuki says "If your mind is empty… it is open to everything. In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert's mind there are few."

I talk about the power of learning something new every day and the freedom of releasing yourself from fixed mindsets. I explore how beginner's mind can be applied to all aspects of life, from career choices to personal growth, allowing us to explore fresh perspectives and unlock endless possibilities.

I also talk about shedding the fear of failure and embracing mistakes as part of the learning process. This episode encourages you to release yourself from the shackles of shoulds and societal expectations, providing the space to discover what you truly desire and allowing you to pivot fearlessly towards new experiences.

Embrace the power of the beginner's mind to cultivate curiosity, non-judgment, and flexibility, and watch your life transform in exciting ways.

Remember, every day is a learning experience, and you have the ability to learn, grow, and expand for the rest of your life. So let's embark on this journey together, explore new possibilities, and find the best version of ourselves.

Tune in now and let the beginner's mind guide you to a more fulfilling and aligned life!
