Changing Your Mindset for Success

Change can be a scary thing to many. Having the same habits ingrained for years makes anything else seems alien.

The concept of changing your mindset for success is laughed at.

It is much easier to continue with the same self destructive habits. No one around us will notice a difference.

None of our friends will tell us we have “changed.”

Things can continue the way they are. The established order of your life will not be upset.

The peace will remain undisturbed.

At some however point you may realize things are not the way you want them to be.

With your new perspective of the world you begin to see things differently. You notice negativity where you once did not.

The potential for positivity in other areas is also clearer.

At this point there should be no turning back.

Once you recognize the faults a great opportunity lies before you.  One few get to embark upon.

The possibility of real success awaits. The kind you can touch in your day to day life.

It is real because you have created it. You have watched it grow from an idea into it’s physical form.

All this is achievable.

It begins with one change.

This will set you on the path to success.


Why You Must Begin Changing Your Mindset for Success

Before success can begin to unravel in the physical world it must begin in the mental.

Mindset is a term used to describe the collection of mental attitudes one has.

Why is this so important?

Our mindset determines how we react to our environment.

The decisions we make and how people view us are all affected by mindset.

Put two different people in the exact same situation. The one with the superior mindset will win.

Often it can overcome physical limitations and genetic traits.

It doesn’t matter how gifted someone may be. If they have the wrong mindset they are doomed.

You won’t get past the first hurdle in life with a crippling mindset. At the first sign of hardship you will crumble.

Every setback will be seen as a failure. Any competition will scare you.

Under high pressure situations you won’t know where to turn.

All because your mindset sucks.

If this sounds familiar to you realize this.

You are not alone.

In fact a negative mindset is the norm.

Anything else is seen as weird by the masses. Those of us with a positive mindset are in the minority.

Have you ever heard someone say something along the lines of “Why is he so obsessed” or “Doesn’t he know how to have fun?”

This is the negative mindset attacking the positive. To them it is like a plague that must be attacked.

They recognize it’s strength and seek to put it out before it grows too strong.

The individual with a positive mindset is dangerous.

It represents life which they have begun to hate.


What You Will Get in Return

By making the conscious effort to have a positive mindset things will start to change.

Instead of viewing setbacks as failures you will see them as opportunities. Inside opportunities lie the prospect of improvement.

Competition will fuel you to perform at your best. The ability to test yourself against others is a privilege. It is the best way to know where your standing is.

Some pressure is good. With a negative mindset you are like a deck of cards.

Even the slightest touch is devastating.

On the other hand a positive mindset will fortify you with military grade Kevlar.

When you test yourself under tough conditions the effectiveness will be clear. Bullets that once pierced you no longer leave a scratch.

You will attract others with a positive mindset. It isn’t hard to spot when you come across them.

Together it will be easier to defend against critics.  Those out to sabotage will be identified when you have eyes watching your back.

A positive mindset leaves you open to learning from the best. You will be a joy to teach.

Like a sponge you will soak up new information.

Putting your new knowledge to use won’t be a problem either.


Go and Take It

The positive mindset is available to everyone. No matter how bad you have had it. There is always hope.

There are those walking around today with a mindset I described. The final product doesn’t happen overnight.

Changing your mindset for success is a continual process. It gets easier as you adapt.  The further you go the more rewards you will enjoy.

Once you have made the decision to change your mindset the rest of the story can continue.

To bring about physical success you must put your new mindset to use.

How is this done?


Begin by Doing Things

Ask yourself “what have I done today?

Your answer should sound something like this:

“Today I made strides in every facet of my development.

I improved my health and fitness. There is no reason not to push your body in one way or another every day.

I improved my mental capacities. I continued to make progress with my work. I excelled with my writing, reading, speaking or business skills. Whatever it may be.

My spiritual side was nurtured today. I meditated and reflected on how the week has gone. I am focused and ready to attack tomorrow.”

All of this is possible. It starts with changing your mindset for success.

A positive mindset is one of a producer. Every situation should be seen as an opportunity to provide value to others.

A consumer takes with no gratitude. They rarely experience the work required to provide.

Those with a mindset for success think in abundance. They understand to get you must give.

When you give others more than they offer the benefits will come back ten fold.

Changing your mindset for success will set you on the correct path.

It will fuel your fire for greatness.

May the light never go out.

    This is an excellent post. You’re right, the people with a positive mindset are in the minority in this world. Negative people hate to see others grow. It reminds them that they’re stuck in a world going nowhere. That’s why people secretly want to see others fail. It reminds them that their not alone.

    Being different is a part of holding a positive mindset. Keeping that focus is what makes someone successful.
