Why does mindset matter? Because thoughts lead to feelings which lead to action. And action creates results.
Therefore if we want to change our results, we cannot do this with the same thinking. We need new thinking. It’s easy to get stuck in the past, thinking about mistakes, what we would do differently, what we have etc. Cultivating a success mindset will help you to switch your negative self talk to more constructive self talk which will filter through into your subconscious.
Success comes down to what you do and how you do it. Which is driven by your thoughts and your feelings.
Building a success mindset can help you to achieve your goals, build stronger, richer relationships, achieve financial success and freedom, build healthier habits and self confidence. Mindset drives all areas, from work and career to academia and sports.
Anyone can build a success mindset, regardless of where they are starting from. Aim to recognise and reframe negative or limiting beliefs. Think about pushing boundaries, do things outside of your comfort zone and this will help to build a success mindset.
Check your attitude on mistakes or failures – even if classed as a mistake or failure, there are still valuable lessons. And with the right approach, you put yourself firmly on the path to success. What can you take from these experiences to move forward?
It’s important to also feel grateful for everything you have. Without gratitude it’s easy to criticize and feel negative when in fact there is so much to feel grateful for. You can feel grateful for what you have, and for what others have.
Consider your circle of friends and acquaintances. There is a saying that you are the average of the people you surround yourself with. Love and appreciate your friends and family but at the same time expand your circle.
Aim to be healthy in mind body and spirit. Richard Branson has often said that he would not have achieved the level of success that he has if he had not prioritised his health and fitness in the way that he has.
Working on your fitness creates more positive thoughts and changes your state of mind – one of the keys to creating a breakthrough.
Create more vitality in your life and you are more likely to attract new opportunities. You can also see things from new perspectives, and problems or barriers which seemed big will now seem smaller or less relevant than first thought.
You’ll find it easier to build momentum and consistency – which will help you achieve greater success through increased productivity and speed.
What does success look like for you?
Here is a powerful quote from an unknown author:
“If an egg is broken by an outside force, life ends, but if broken by an inside force, life begins. Great things always begin from inside.”
What can you change from the inside?
Increase your self awareness and take small steps to change your thoughts from negative to positive, even if you can change your thoughts from negative to neutral you will be building a success mindset.
