success mindset

It’s safe to say that we all want more success in our lives, and that success may take many different forms.

You may be looking for financial success in your career or business, or you could be looking for personal success in relationships etc.

Whatever you are striving for, hopefully this post will help on the way to achieving it.

Want to give your mind a kick up the backside and put it into 5th gear? Well, these ten tips will help you shift your paradigm into a success mindset.

Here goes…

1 View Failure As A Learning Opportunity

Don’t view failure as a crushing defeat but rather as a chance to learn and to come back stronger!

So many people fall foul of this and give up before they have even really started. Don’t let that be you!

Fail forward and fail fast; don’t dwell on your past mistakes as these don’t define your future.

2 View Obstacles As Challenges

Likewise, try to view problems as challenges to be overcome. This will just make your victory all the sweeter.

This is closely linked to point one and if you can reframe failures and obstacles as challenges that will help you to grow, this will help you to keep going.

Remember that nobody grows in their comfort zone; you must be pushed to grow and this is the type of opportunity that obstacles will give you.

3 Don’t Choose Between Two Things

When trying to choose between two things that you really want, the best answer is always to find a way that you can make them both happen.

Focus and clarity are important so you need to decide which is the priority and put all your energy into that one first.

Don’t try to multitask and tackle multiple goals as this is a recipe for failure; multitasking is a myth and NOT for the success minded person.

4 Don’t Let Others Define Your Success

Too many of us have one set view of what success looks like and we struggle to see it in any other way.

Success is doing whatever it is that makes you happy. Don’t worry if that just so happens to make other people raise their eyebrows!

Like I said in the beginning, what you want for success can vary wildly and will probably change during various stages of your life so don’t be constrained by other people’s idea of success.

Determine what you want to achieve ad really go for it.

5 Invest In Yourself

Investing in yourself is the most important way to start achieving more.

This is the best way to spend money and the best way to spend time. Develop your skills, buy a suit and fix that hair!

If you are buying training to learn a new skill and you put your new skills into action, then what initially looked like an expense has turned into an investment and should more than pay for itself in the long run.

6 Act Like You’ve Already Won

Acting like you’ve already won is the best way to empower yourself to be stronger and more successful.

When you do this, you give off an aura of success that makes others gravitate to you!

Visualisation can be a very powerful tool and can really help to keep you motivated, especially when you do hit the inevitable obstacles.

Always have your eye on the end goal but don’t forget to enjoy the journey too!

7 Know Yourself

This can be tough, but you really need to do this.

Know yourself and be honest about what you want, who you are and what your strengths and weaknesses are.

By doing this, you can focus your efforts on what you do best. If you need help in another area to reach your goals, consider outsourcing to experts in that area so it won’t hold you back.

8 Avoid Toxic People

Avoid the people in your life who are constantly telling you what you can’t do, who are making you feel bad about your dreams.

This is absolutely vital to your success. Don’t stay around people who constantly drag you down or are negative or call you a daydreamer.

This can be especially difficult if the people concerned are close family or friends.

As you start to achieve success people will become jealous of you and try to pull you back down to their level because you are exposing their flaws, and this makes them uncomfortable.

Find people who encourage you and celebrate your success with you.

9 Surround Yourself With Positive People

Likewise, surround yourself with positive people and surround yourself with people who share your vision and can help it grow!

True friends should always want what is best for you and will be happy when you achieve something.

You can also find online forums of likeminded people who are all there for the same reason and will all help to support and encourage each other; don’t underestimate the online community.

10 Do What You Are Most Passionate About

The simplest way to be successful in life, is to put more effort it. That means being willing to get up earlier, to work harder and to work smarter toward that goal.

But this shouldn’t feel like work. Why? Because it should be something that you absolutely love.

Spending your life working hard on something you don’t care about is a waste and when you find your passion, you’ll find it unlocks boundless energy and enthusiasm.

So, there are ten tips to help you to increase your success mindset.

Another tool you can use to increase your chances of success is to adopt habits of other successful people…

The Positive Habits Of Successful People

mindset to success

What do positive people have in common? Lots of things. And in fact, if you look at the most successful people across every different discipline, you’ll often find that they have more in common than they have differences.

Top athletes have a lot more in common with top CEOs than you might expect and the same can be said for artists too.

And when we recognize these habits, we can often break them down and work backward to discover some of the most important traits and habits we need to adopt in order to join them. Here are some of those positive habits…

Self Development

On his podcast, author Tim Ferriss interviews some of the most successful people in the world ranging from actors, to singers, to athletes to programmers.

One of the things that almost all of them surprisingly have in common is that they start their day with meditation. And of course a lot of them exercise too.

What does this tell us? It tells us that the successful mindset involves being willing to work on yourself and get better. When you do that, you have no limitations and you can keep on getting stronger and better!

Following A Passion

Another thing that you’ll find without exception when speaking with successful people is that they have one singular passion that they follow in every single aspect of their lives.

You’ll be able to tell because they will start talking about it right away and their eyes will light up!

It makes sense too — because when we have a real passion, it gives us the drive, focus and determination to work harder and smarter than everyone else.

Breaking The Mold

Something else that all of the most successful people in the world share is the willingness to break the mold — to walk the path less trodden.

This is how they discover opportunities that others miss but it’s also fundamentally what made them able to question their life’s path in the first place.

Arnold Schwarzenegger was certainly unique for deciding he wanted to become a bodybuilder (he came from a small village in Austria). He certainly raised eyebrows when he moved to America. But he had the courage to know what he wanted and to go after it — even if it was a bit unusual.

Don’t be afraid to be you and to go the way you want to go. Rules are there to be broken — that’s why they’re called breakthroughs!
