Master Your Mindset: The Master’s Way

Victoria L. Dammer



All humans need a purpose. We often need guidance in finding our true purpose in life, and if we don’t seek a helping hand from a mentor, we end up lost on our life’s journey. Without meaning, we decay and live a life that is not up to our true potential. We repeat toxic, limiting beliefs such as “What if I fail?” or “I’m not smart enough,” among others. We become uncomfortable with our lives, blaming ourselves and others, including God.

Great minds like Napoleon Hill, Zig Ziglar, and Dale Carnegie and passages from the Bible have shared words of wisdom on pinpointing the steps we need to take to come to know our purpose. Elizabeth Nader highlights many of these sapient pearls of wisdom and some of her own in her book Master Your Mindset: The Master’s Way, a masterpiece workbook on how to “Conquer limiting beliefs and pursue your purpose.”

Nader introduces the positive concept that we have a choice; we can be in charge of the one thing we can control in life-our mind. We must let go of the toxic ideas that prevent us from pursuing our unique purpose and, ultimately, we can share our gifts with the world. By focusing on several charts, self-help exercises, and positive reinforcement through powerful quotes throughout the book, Nader points the reader to what is arguably the most significant factor in finding one’s true purpose; take control of your mindset today.

Nader sees the universe unfolding under God’s laws and isn’t apologetic for her views. But for critics of her Biblical-driven insight, she explains her perspective for those who wish to grab the concept with a nonsecular explanation-what we reap, we sow. In short, we all arrive at the same conclusion no matter how we examine mindset.

“What we sow in our lives… what we focus on, what we meditate on, what we think about, what we talk about, what we give out to others… we will reap in our lives (the world also calls it karma),” says Nader.

Nader conveys that eliminating our toxic mindset begins with identifying whether we operate our lives with humility or hubris. According to Webster’s dictionary, one definition of humility is the quality or state of being humble. They define hubris as exaggerated pride or self-confidence. Humility allows us to admit our weaknesses, accept our strengths, and live truthfully. Conversely, hubris is a life filled with deception. Nader’s readers are encouraged to choose whether they lead a life of hubris or humility; the outcome is in your control, depending on which way you live.

Nader is insightful as she shares her definition of mindset. She contends to assume control, the following definition holds the building blocks of what we need to fulfill our purpose and destiny:

“A set of BELIEFS and a way of THINKING that determines one’s ACTIONS,” she says.

Nader encourages everyone to complete all the exercises she presents in her book, starting with identifying your limiting beliefs among a list of 152 Nader collected over the years from people she encountered on her life’s journey. Of course, they’re excuses, but one or more may be your limited belief holding you back from accomplishing the change you want to see in your life.

Nader provides the reader with 14 practical steps to change your mindset and eliminate limiting beliefs; you will reap success and a healthy mindset despite obstacles, even failure.

The last few words in the book are powerful.

“When you experience failure, don’t let fear take hold,” Nader says. “Stop. Breathe. Watch your words. Renew your thoughts. Pray. Ask for help. Don’t give up. Allow God to be in control. Trust more. Let go. Heal. Grow. Repeat.”

When you embrace Nader’s school of thought and use her dynamic methods in Master Your Mindset, you will pursue your purpose.

I frequently dine around Manhattan while checking out the latest shows, jazz, and classical music venues. Friends recently reminded me that unique, excellent restaurants and sites could be found minutes away in Jersey City.

Pershing Square Café

I’ve often enjoyed Pershing Square Café’s wonderful breakfast specials and especially their legendary pancakes. After enjoying an early evening of swinging jazz across town at Birdland Jazz Club, I walked east from 8th Ave through Times Square on 42nd Street, past Bryant Park and Grand Central towards peaceful Tudor City. Nestled next to Grand Central where Park Avenue intersects 42nd Street is the Pershing Square Café. Tonight, it looked like the perfect quiet place for a post-jazz bite.
