5 Keys To Changing Your Mindset For Success
1. Stop Thinking You Can't Be Successful
This is the biggest obstacle in your way, you want to be successful but your mind keeps telling you that you can't!
"Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right." - Henry Ford
Whatever you believe you can do, it's what actually you will do. If you believe you can't then you really can't, you will not do it.
Your behavior will be dictated by your beliefs. You must start asking what influences your beliefs. Answer will come, everything around you can influence.
What you do, what you hear, what you read, what you write, what or who you connect with.
Instead of finding reasons for saying you can't, start to understand that it's possible that you can become successful.
Get a new mindset by surrounding yourself by success examples and sources.
You'll find out that some people just like you, became successful. So why can't you become also?
Anyone can do it if they believe in it. Switch your attitude and say yes I can be successful. Now you just have to work on the how's and simply do them.
2. Stop Waiting For The Savior
Another common mistake we make as human beings, is that we can be depositing all our hopes and faith in something bigger than us, that one day will come to save us and make us successful.
Spirituality can be important in the pursuit of success, but waiting for a savior out of the blue while doing nothing else, isn't not a good practice to be successful.
Let me tell the news, that savior might never come and your wait will be pointless.
"Take one step towards Him, and He'll take two towards you".
You must take the first step, you must make the first move, cause any action has an opposite and equal reaction. So for things to start to change, you must make that first change yourself.
Don't wait and do nothing, that will not make you successful. Start to do things and pushing forward, eventually all the things you want will start to come in your way.
Because you're a cause set in motion, not someone who just waits doing nothing.
3. Stop Blaming People For Your Failure
This is all about taking responsibility for your actions. When you blame others you quickly divorce yourself from the problem, changing the focus to other people's behaviors and actions.
What does this got to do with being successful?
Success is a never ending growing experience, you need to learn your lessons throughout your journey.
If you're not acknowledging you made a mistake, you'll never correct that mistake, therefore you'll not learn neither you'll grow.
Self-failure needs to be recognized to become instructive, don't run away from it, deal with it.
Stop blaming people and start to take responsibility. If you make a mistake, you can correct it, then move on to the next thing, wiser and stronger. Grow from failure.
4. Less Talking, More Doing
You've seen it before in your life, people talking and talking about the things they want to achieve and become.
But you don't see often, people actually doing it and achieving those things. What's the reason for it?
It's very easy to talk about dreams and wishes, it's much harder to actually make them a reality.
Talking will make you feel good about it, but it won't get you anything. While not talking and taking action will get you what you want!
If you want to be successful, you need to get the right mindset: stop talking about success, and actually start to do it.
5. Don't Be Afraid To Be Successful, Be Afraid If You Aren't
Another way our mind tricks us, is by giving us the feeling of fear.
Where success is concerned, sometimes people are afraid of being successful. Because, once you have everything you ever wanted and worked so hard for, there is always a possibility that you might lose it all in a snap of a finger.
Although, this is just a possibility of many, some people see it as the only possibility. So they become afraid of being successful.
This fear can freeze you and so much for reaching success. But think otherwise, instead of being afraid of success, start to be afraid if you aren't successful.
- If you don't achieve success what will happen to your life and family?
- What will you be missing and not providing your loved ones with?
- What chances of changing your life are you wasting by being afraid?
- Aren't your bother by the possibility of being successful, but to give up on it, just because of fear?
Stand tall and rise up to the occasion. Success is a goal and you need to challenge yourself to achieve that goal. Confront your fear, let it be a motivation tool not a discouraging one.
Hope now you are ready to start to change your mindset to achieve success.
