There is a difference between those who succeed and those who don't. Your motivation and determination comes from your mindset. You must learn how to master it, when altering your way of thinking you change your behavior in the process.
Those who are successful have a view of life as a never ending self improvement. Learning can mean taking on anything other than conventional classroom education.
Keeping yourself informed and up to date. Reading and expanding your education. Attending events and listening to podcasts. Conversations with people outside of your industry.
Analyzing your mistakes and questioning them for further improvement. Learning is a trial and error process but taking time to figure out what went wrong can go a long way.
As people we inhabit a world of comfort. Which isn't wrong …. Per se. The longer you spend time in a place of serenity the more uncomfortable it is to do something out of realm.
Taking risk doesn’t mean being careless and reckless and abandoning your decisions. It's more of a leap into the unknown. What I am trying to say is doing things that are new, unfamiliar and scary is all tied together with moving forward.
Set the Bar High
Laziness is one of the dangers people face. It eats away at valuable and available time. Obviously, the target is set small and as time goes on it increases. Making goals realistically achievable will set your goal into smaller but larger steps.
Making wrong decisions here and there is healthy, it gives you satisfaction rather than making no decision at all. You don't need to have a million dollar target however, it is good to always have reachable goals in mind that you are always working towards.
Only involve yourself in things that can be achieved rather than setting the bar too high it's hard to reach. Being selective is a strong and good trait to carry. Being able to see things clearly before moving on to the next milestone.
Believe in Yourself
Believing in yourself is the easiest to do on paper but the most difficult to reach in reality. The lack of self confidence and guidance is something a lot of people suffer from at different aspects in their life.
Not believing in yourself will cause you to feel like you are running twenty miles instead of five. Self doubt can be changed. Surround yourself with those who believe and uplift you !
A successful mindset is always evolving, it takes practice until it becomes second nature to you. You must be eager to transform yourself and trust your ability to succeed. It's good to have the right perspective and conscious decisions.
