Change Your Mindset To Change Your Life

Change Your Mindset To Change Your Life

A lot of people claim they know the secret to success. They will claim it is motivation, ambitiousness, positivity, conscientiousness and all sorts of other abstract nouns.

However they are missing the true vital ingredient, the real key that will get you started on the road to success to begin with: desire.

It Comes From Within

It is obvious really, but if you are going to be successful in any area of your life then you need to want to be successful. It does not matter how hard working you are, how much time you spend at work, but if you do not particularly want to climb to the top it just will not happen.

Anything along these lines is a competition essentially, and if you do not truly desire success then you’ll still be going against a whole lot of people who do.

You cannot really have motivation without desire, but even if you could, where would you be directing that motivation? It is desire that will help you keep your eye on the prize and act as the motivator as you put in more time after work or come up with complex plans on how to woo the guy/gal of your dreams.

And the more you desire something the more you’ll work to get it. And as you do you’ll find that you subconsciously even help to navigate through the mire of challenges and that the world just kind of steps out of the way.

Of course not all desire will work. Firstly your desire needs to be realistic, and secondly your desire needs to be concrete. A desire to fly for example probably is only going to end with disappointment unless you are from Krypton, and a desire to ‘be more successful’ is an abstract aim that’s really quite subjective.

How To Find Your Desire

Some people though do not seem to have any desire at all however, and these people can be quite aimless in their lives. They aren’t going to progress because they do not know how they want to progress and they do not know what they want from life. The thing is though, everyone has something they want, it is just a matter of finding out what it is.

If you are struggling to know what your desire is, then think of your life now as it is. Now think of how it could be improved. Now think of how your life would look if you had everything the way you want it. That’s pretty desirable right?

Maybe you have got a big house and kids, or a small house and great artistic job, or you are a movie star, or a high flying businessman. Now you know what your desires are, write them down and break them down into smaller steps and priorities. Suddenly you have direction and motivation. So, you can now see the power of changing your mindset, so let’s look at 5 ways you can grow a positive mindset…

Top Five Tips For Achieving A Success Mindset

Want to start changing your life? Then you need to change yourself. You are in the position you’re in right now because you chose to be there.

You might not realize that you chose it but even through your inaction, you in fact did. The job you have right now, your financial circumstances and nearly every other aspect of your life is a matter of choice – and if you wanted to, you could go out there and change everything today. You just need to take action!

But if you really want to make a change and you want to start by changing your fixed mindset, how do you know where to start? What is it you need to change in order to achieve a growth mindset? Here are five top tips that will help make that transformation much easier…

Find Your Own Path

Most of us have a clear idea of what success means but this is an idea that we have inherited from our schools and our parents.

This is not really our version of success and as such, it’s not going to be what we’re passionate about and it won’t give us that fire and drive to wake up early in the morning to work on our projects.

In order to be truly successful, you need to find your own path and that is going to mean forgetting what others think and finding what makes you happy.

Take Risks

Learning to take risks is a difficult step but if you’re going to achieve the things you really want in life, you need to take the leap sometimes.

Learn to take measured, calculated risks.

And the key is that they are calculated risks; don’t become overzealous when risk taking, but you need to be less cautions.

You know what they say “Nothing ventured, nothing gained.”

Be Prepared To Fail

Taking risks means being prepared to fail. In this instance, you need to learn how to manage failure and take it on the chin. Pick up the pieces and go again for round two!

So many people are paralysed by fear of failure, but surely it is worse to have never tried to live your best life and achieve your dreams.

Try reframing failure as a learning process and always “fail forward” on your way to success.

Find The ‘Essence’ Of What Drives You

Sometimes success doesn’t come in the form we expect. Sometimes we don’t know what we need to be happy.

That’s why it can be useful to break down our dreams to their essence. What is it about that idea that appeals to you and what’s the easiest way to get there?

Some people will call this finding your reason why, but no matter what you call it, you need to find it.

By the way, if you want to know more about this, take a look at this great training here: Finding Your Why

Invest In Yourself

Knowing how important that passion is to you, you now need to invest in yourself and be willing to spend both time and money on everything from your appearance to your skill set.

There is no better investment that investing in you!

Find books, courses, coaches that can move you forward. Of course you need to do your due diligence to ensure you aren’t throwing money away, but anything that helps you to reach your goals shouldn’t be seen as an expense, but rather an investment.

Changing the way you think requires self discipline and if you want to know more about harnessing the power of self discipline, check out the featured resource below for a free report; download, read it and take action 🙂
