Ten Tips To Set Your Mind Up For Success

Ten Tips To Set Your Mind Up For Success

I’m sure that you all know that the way you think can have a dramatic impact on how you live your life. Developing a growth mindset should be a priority if you really want to get the best out of life.

Want to give your mindset a kick up the backside and put it into 5th gear?

These ten tips will help you shift your paradigm into a success mindset.

Here goes…

1 View failure as a learning opportunity

Don’t view failure as a crushing defeat but rather as a chance to learn and to come back stronger!

2 View obstacles as challenges

Likewise, try to view problems as challenges to be overcome. This will just make your victory all the sweeter.

3 Don’t choose between two things

When trying to choose between two things that you really want, the best answer is always to find a way that you can make them both happen.

4 Don’t let others define your success

Too many of us have one set view of what success looks like and we struggle to see it in any other way.

Success is doing whatever it is that makes you happy. Don’t worry if that just so happens to make other people raise their eyebrows!

5 Invest in yourself

Investing in yourself is the most important way to start achieving more. This is the best way to spend money and the best way to spend time. Develop your skills, buy a suit and fix that hair!

6 Act like you’ve already won

Acting like you’ve already won is the best way to empower yourself to be stronger and more successful. When you do this, you give off an aura of success that makes others gravitate to you!

7 Know yourself

Know yourself and be honest about what you want, who you are and what your strengths and weaknesses are.

8 Avoid toxic people

Avoid the people in your life who are constantly telling you what you can’t do, who are making you feel bad about your dreams…

9 Surround yourself with positive people

Likewise, surround yourself with positive people and surround yourself with people who share your vision and can help it grow!

10 Do what you are most passionate about

The simplest way to be successful in life, is to put more effort it. That means being willing to get up earlier, to work harder and to work smarter toward that goal.

But this shouldn’t feel like work. Why? Because it should be something that you absolutely love. Spending your life working hard on something you don’t care about is a waste and when you find your passion, you’ll find it unlocks boundless energy and enthusiasm.

These ten tips should come in really handy to set up your mind for success, but can this stuff really help you change your life? Let’s find out…

Change Your Mindset, 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.

If you want to be successful, especially as a business owner, you need that entrepreneurial mindset that will set you on fire to do whatever it takes to succeed, and to enjoy the process too.

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 and develop a positive mindset and attitude. 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. Good luck!

So now you are changing your destiny by harnessing the power of your mind. Everything is going well until you start running into criticism and the way you deal with that is really important.

How To Turn Negative Feedback Into Positive Results

Having a success mindset means taking risks and it means putting yourself out there. It means taking chances and being willing to fail.

And when you do all that, you’ll find that sometimes you do fail. Sometimes people laugh at you. Sometimes you lose a lot of money.

And this can hurt a lot. Sometimes, it feels as though you will never be successful, and that other people seem to have it all figured out. But let’s take a step back for a moment.

Because most of the successful people you know and most of the successful people in the media were unsuccessful at some point. And they have been in exactly the same position as you – having tried and failed.

The only difference between those people and the ones you never hear about, is that they got back up, they shrugged off the criticisms and they went for it anyway.

And if you dig a little deeper, nearly every ‘success story’ is actually made up of a thousand little failures, rejections and humiliations. Look at JK Rowling who had her book rejected countless times before it made her into one of the richest people on the planet. Look at Arnold Schwarzenegger who was told that he could never be a movie star with his thick accent and physique.

And yet.

The key to remember is that you’re at a point in your story where there’s challenge and upheaval but if you take this in your stride, it will actually make you stronger.

When you receive criticisms from others, what do you do? Do you curl up in a ball and cry about it? Or do you decide that you’re going to learn from their critique and take it on board. Next time, they won’t be able to make that same criticism!

And when you fail and lose your money, do you give up on starting your own business? Or do you make a note of everything that you did wrong and then endeavour not to make those same mistakes again?

This is the difference between successful people and the rest of us. You must start developing a success growth mindset today. And look at it this way: if you treat every single failure as a chance to get better, then every single time you try, you will slightly increase your chances of winning big.

And that means that if you continue trying, the odds will eventually be stacked in your favor!
