A secret is only a secret as long as one keeps it…
There’s a secret that many of the world’s most successful and inspiring people know.
This secret is that whether you want to increase your income, meet your soul mate, transform your current relationship or hit any other goal in any other area of your life…
It’s your mindset that will either make or break your success!
Your internal belief system about who you are, what you’re capable of and what you think you deserve will either:
1. Quantum leap you towards your goals at light speed
2. Keep you stuck in your present, hoping and wishing things were different
Here’s something else:
Very few people are born with a “success mindset.”
Most people have to work to cultivate one.
But the good news is that it doesn’t have to be HARD work to get there.
Here are 5 simple things you can do starting today that will help you shift yourself into a success mindset that will help propel you forward instead of keeping you stuck:
#1: Always be learning
Consider putting yourself into some kind of structured learning program, like a personal coaching program or even something like cooking, foreign language or dance classes.
When your course or series of classes run out, find something else that looks interesting to you and put yourself into it.
Being committed to learning new things on an ongoing basis will keep your brain stimulated and forward thinking - plus it’s great for increasing your level of self-confidence!
#2: Surround yourself with people who believe anything is possible
Just like the saying “You are what you eat,” you also become who you spend most of your time with.
Spending time with positive-minded people who believe that life is what you make of it will help to remind you that the only limitations in your life are the ones you put on yourself.
This is an important mindset to have in order to stretch yourself to reach new and exciting goals that are outside of your current comfort zone.
#3: Consider turning off the TV
It can feel great to turn on the TV and sit back, relax and unwind after a long day…
But it’s SO easy to get sucked into watching it for hours without even realizing where the time has gone!
And what’s wrong with that, you may ask?
Well, research has shown that prolonged television watching actually slows your brain activity, even after you’ve turned the TV off.
To keep your brain happy, healthy and firing on all cylinders, try to limit your TV time to an hour (maybe two) a day if you can.
#4: Be good to your body
Remember the saying “healthy body, healthy mind”…? Well it’s so true!
Drinking tons of water and eating healthy “live” foods (like salads and uncooked vegetables, for example) have been shown to increase brain function, which of course will lead to greater creativity, flow and productivity.
So never skip breakfast, hydrate regularly and aim to eat at least one fresh “live” meal each day to make sure you’re putting good fuel into your body.
#5: Have a plan
What are you working toward? Have an end goal.
I set three large goals for myself each year, plus I also set mini goals that I work toward each month.
I also have my own “rewards system.”
When I hit each of my goals, I reward myself with something I enjoy…
A delectable drink from Starbucks, a delicious meal out, a massage or perhaps even a vacation for hitting a truly big milestone.
Set goals, work toward them and then remember to acknowledge and reward yourself once you reach them.
