If you’re interested in achieving more with your life, then you might have read a few self-help books.
And is it really possible to start achieving more in your life, simply by changing your mindset? Let’s take a closer look…
The success mindset, as the name suggests, is the type of mindset and set of beliefs that will set you on track to accomplish more. This is the set of beliefs, the attitude and the conviction that is required to really go out there and get what you want in life.
Think about those people in your life and in the media who are highly successful and effective. What is different about them compared with everyone else? There are possibly a few factors but the most important things are:
Let’s take a look at Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson for example. This is a guy who has accomplished incredible things in multiple fields and what is it that helped him get there? The fact that he is willing to put in absolutely insane amounts of work. If you follow him on Instagram, you’ll constantly be greeted by pictures of him training in the gym at 4am before full days of shooting. Where does he get that energy? He gets it from his passion.
Can you ever imagine a sullen Rock? And can you imagine that a sullen version of his persona would have gotten to where he is today?
So that is what it means to have a ‘success mindset’ and hopefully, it has also given you a big clue as to what you need to do to get there. In order to have a successful mindset, you need to find your passion and know yourself.
When you can do that, then suddenly everything is going to fall seamlessly into place. You’ll find you have plenty of energy when you truly love whatever it is you do!
What is your goal in life? For some it is to get into shape. For some it is to get rich. For others, it is to see the world.
Now what is your daily goal?
This is a very different concept but actually the daily goal is far more important than the overarching goal – at least if you really want to achieve the things that you’re dreaming of. And why is that?
The big issue is that for many of us, our goals are much too broad and much too vague. Even if you have a ‘specific target’ like losing 5 stone in a year, this is still much too broad and vague.
Losing that amount of weight is not entirely within your control. There’s lots you can do to increase or decrease your chances of success and of course you’re mostly responsible… but there are other factors at play here too like your health and like your metabolism.
And it makes it easy to get disheartened too – when you get 6 months in and realize that you’re actually heavier than you were before.
But daily goals fix all that. Start with a vision – a very abstract vision of what you want – and then break that down into the smallest possible steps that you can execute every day or every week.
In the case of losing weight, your goal might be to eat no more than 1,800 calories a day, or to go for at least a 10-minute run every day. That’s a small goal but it’s perfect for sticking to because it is completely within your control.
If you don’t manage to run just that little bit, then you only have yourself to blame. There are no excuses to be made – it’s pass or fail. But at least tomorrow you can try again.
And the same goes for every other type of objective too. The best way to earn money is to build a business a little every day. And the best way to write a novel, is to write a page every night!
‘Create a success mindset’ they say.
‘Just go after the things you want in life’ they say!
‘Take risks’ they say…
It’s time we addressed them…
Here are the top five challenges of creating a success mindset:
This is a surprisingly common issue and one that rarely gets brought up.
You must have clarity about what you want and have some idea of how to achieve them or you will probably never even get started.
Or perhaps you do know what you want in life, but your aims are just too weird or unattainable?
What if everyone will laugh at you? Who cares; it’s your life and it’s up to you to do what is best for you regardless of the opinions of others.
Or how about being torn between travelling and settling down with the person you love?
What if your heart is genuinely pulling you in two different directions?
This can be really difficult, but it is something tat is probably going to be unavoidable as you grow.
We are prideful creatures, and our very psychology is wired in such a way as to protect our fragile egos.
And so when we realize that we’re unhappy with what we have in life, it can be very hard for us to be honest and admit that – to ourselves or to others!
It’s easy to say that you should take a leap and apologise later but what if people are really relying on you to be mature and stable? What if your goal is to go travelling but your wife just got pregnant?
There are answers to all these problems of course – but just know that the path isn’t as simple as some would have you believe!
