Changing Your Mindset For Success
I know people who do not believe in the power of changing your mindset for success. These are the same people that have never read "Think & Grow Rich" by Napolean Hill or "How Rich People Think" by Steve Seibold, and countless other self-improvement books.
I am not one of those people!
I happen to believe you are what you think. For most of us, this is a scary thought if you are not as successful as you want to be.
If you are what you think then doesn't it stand to reason that if you change your mindset the thoughts coming into your brain can be changed? This is a very comforting thought to those that embrace it with the understanding they can become more successful!
It all starts with changing your mindset for success. That is what we are going to talk about in this article.
Ideas On Changing Your Mindset
1. I accept I need to change. Come into this with an open mind. You are not as successful as you want to be because you do not think like a successful person does.
Keeping an open mind will let you explore all of the possibilities available to you. Having an open mindset helps you begin to see what you can be and not just what you are.
2. What are your counter mindsets? Did you know you have about 65,000 thousand thought go through your mind each day?
When I read that in doing some research for this article it blew me away and it should you as well. Now you can understand just how badly you are sabotaging your own success mindset.
If the majority of our mindsets come from negative thoughts and self-doubt it is no wonder we are not successful. It is encouraging though to think that if you could just change to a positive mindset it is possible to have 65,000 good thoughts every day as well!
3. Pay attention to your thoughts. This is where you get to start seeing how badly you think and can begin to start making changes to them.
I think you will be surprised at how often you do have negative thoughts when you start paying attention to them. Self-doubt is a big killer of people who are trying to become more successful.
Self-doubt can creep into all areas of our lives, but especially in our business lives. Thoughts like I could never make money online, or I can't do that, or I'll never be able to make enough money online to quit my job.
This is how millions of people trying to make money online think all day long. How do I know this? Because I used to be one of them.
4. Start making changes. I want to give you a couple of simple things you can do to begin changing the way you think from negative to positive.
The first one is to give yourself a pep talk several times a day. When you are combing your hair in the morning say out loud "I Really Look Good Today". As the day goes on whenever you are down thinking to yourself how great of a day you are having.
Here is another one. Add the word yet to the end of a negative thought. For example, I do not believe I can earn $100 a day yet.
Yet denotes this has not been decided. I do not know if I am good enough yet. I do not have enough Internet marketing skills yet.
5. What is your why? I doubt if any one thing has helped me more to change my own success mindset than having a powerful WHY!
Why do you want to make more money? Why do you want to become more successful?
Just because I do is not an answer. I remember listening to an Internet marketing positive thinking tape one time and the speaker was talking about the magic refrigerator.
The idea was to put a picture of why you were doing Internet marketing on your refrigerator where you would see it. You could also tape it to your computer screen. Anywhere you would see it to remind you why you are doing what you are doing.
It could be something as simple as a number. Willie Crawford talked once about taping the number $2740 to the side of his computer monitor. $2740 was how much money he needed to earn each day to earn $1 Million Dollars a year.
Your why could be a picture of your kids, a new RV, buying a new house, giving more to charity. If it is a big enough why changing your mindset will help you achieve it.
6. Write it down. I can not think of anything more powerful when it comes to changing your mindset than to write your goals down and read them out loud twice a day. Read them when you first get up and read them right before you go to bed.
I am a big believer in a daily to-do list. Action items that need to be done and can be crossed off as you complete them.
There is something very liberating about accomplishing things. Even getting small things done to go along way towards changing your success mindset because you begin to believe you can do just about anything when you really are!
Summary: How To Change Your Mindset For Success
Changing your mindset for success does not happen by luck. It is a choice you make. You are in control of your 65,000 thoughts all day long.
Choose to put positive thoughts in and get rid of negative thoughts. Write your goals down and read them out loud.
Get a daily to-do list and cross off items as you complete them. Use the magic refrigerator or computer to post a picture of your BIG WHY.
This stuff really does work. What have you got to lose? Changing your mindset for success is up to you!
