A Positive Mindset is the Foundation for Success
Most of us are conditioned since childhood to
believe certain things and to follow the system. We get told not to
swim against the current, not to make a fool of ourselves, and not
to take risks. This inhibits our choices and unless we take
conscious action against such beliefs, we are destined to live a
life of mediocrity. We might have a reasonably good home, we can
afford certain luxuries, maybe a holiday once a year or a nice car,
but if something unexpected happens we are in danger of loosing it
all at the drop of a pin.
The tragic thing is that we have to work hard all our lives to have
those so called luxuries.
We are slaves of the system and there is no real freedom for us in
the long term. Oh yes, we can work our butt off until we collect
our pension, but is it really enough?
How many people are dying once they collect their pension? And they
worked hard all their lives for someone else. Wouldn’t it be nicer
to work hard for ourselves instead and enjoy the success of our
lives before we get to old age?
Here is the thing: we all can: don’t limit your thinking, as this
will limit your beliefs and these will limit your actions, which
will limit your successes! Success starts in our minds and the
sooner we understand this, the better a chance we have at achieving
One of the most important things for the foundation of success is
making a decision to have a go at creating it. We have to make a
conscious decision to design our personal success and work hard to
get there eventually. This requires us to give up certain comfort
factors in our life, such as stopping to blame others for our
misfortunes. Start to take responsibility for your own actions,
good and bad and work on solutions rather than problems. Solution
minded people find success because they conquer their mindset and
find solutions rather than concentrating on problems!
Another important factor is Integrity. Integrity is necessary for
us to find true success, no matter what the outcome. Be responsible
for whatever happens because of the decisions you made. Stick to
your values, morals and principles, even if you seem to run against
the current. Most people give up too easily and let others steal
their dreams! The only way to fail is to give up. Successful people
use their mistakes to grow, learn and eventually better themselves
and they reach success because of their strong mindset. They know
that success cannot withstand consistent action and integrity.
To be successful you will have to work harder on yourself than you
work on your business. You will have to become an effective leader.
As a trusted and strong leader people will follow you. You will
have to design a plan and then work the plan diligently day after
day, with your blinkers on – until! It isn’t going to be easy, but
imagine what can be possible?! Here is to your SUCCESS
