An infinite mindset thinks of the long term without disregarding short term oriented results.
Such a mindset can be adopted by only a handful of visionary leaders due to the following major challenges:
- Adopting this mindset needs to overcome the inherent “fear” resistance of the “devil” or “limbic brain” since our brain is naturally oriented to oppose any change to status quo.
- Adopting this mindset encourages to NOT focus on “low hanging” short term gains but focus on long term gains instead
- Since this mindset is for the long term , seeing results may take quite some time and needs a lot of patience
As a result of the challenges associated with adopting this mindset , majority of the people are enticed to take short cuts to realize short term profits to realize the flow of “dopamine”
