80% of Success is Mindset. It’s not your strategies, natural talents, creative genius, or even your intelligence. It has nothing to do with having financial leverage. And, it has nothing to do with who you know either. Success begins with the ability to establish within yourself a very specific and type of mindset.
Mindset is not only a small part of success. It’s actually the determining factor of success or failure. If you’re in business, you can have all the strategies for your brand, finding your ideal customers, creating a huge list of leads – all of these things are helpful but the results that those activities produce are dependent upon the beliefs that you have about yourself, your career (job or business), and about your life.
Do you often envision yourself achieving great things, and then follow this up with a negative thought process? Do you talk yourself out of your dreams before you even begin to pursue them? If so, you need to change the way you think.
When you change your thought processes to success thinking you truly can change your life. Positive thoughts enable you to reach out and grasp the success you seek.
If you’re honest with yourself, you may find that much of your inner dialogue, how you feel about yourself, and even the way you carry yourself are negative. This destructive thinking sets you up to fail or causes you to give up before you ever really get started and as long as you keep focusing and complaining about your present circumstances, you mind will focus on it.
If you are continually talking about, thinking about, and writing about the way things are, you are reinforcing those very same neural pathways in your brain that got you to where you are today. And you are continually sending out the same vibrations and frequencies that will keep on attracting the same circumstances that you already created. To change the cycle, you have to focus on thinking, talking and writing about the reality you want to create instead.
Your thoughts are manufacturing your experience of reality and are determining what opportunities you see, what ideas you have, and what you attract into your life. The brain is the most incredible “technology” that resides between your ears and you have to learn how to get it working for you instead of against you. If you want to change your life, you have to change your brain. As with anything new, creating a success mindset will take practice to give you the best results.
