The Right Mindset Is The Key To Succeed In Almost Anything
The Right Mindset Is The Key To Your Success
I’m here in Long Island New York looking at the ocean and I just finished a pretty intense conversation with one of my students. I do private mentoring for some extra income.
Then It got me to thinking of sharing my thoughts of one part of that conversation.
During the conversation he asked me this question “How come you seem to succeed at anything you put your mind into?”
And I had a very simple answer “It’s my mindset”
The only difference I have compared to many people is my mindset. I spent years developing the mindset that there is no hurdle I cannot overcome.
The word quit is not in my dictionary. And because it’s not there, it’s not in my thinking.
We all have challenges, and I have then almost everyday. But when I have a challenge I don’t look at it like “Oh great here we go again another challenge”
I look at like “ok here’s something I did not anticipate, not a big deal, that’s life. Ok let’s get to the bottom of this, what can I do to resolve this hurdle and have fun doing it”
I devote all of my energy into solving the challenges, no matter what it is. I try to solve it and I move on.
At one point, I use to be of the that mindset when things came along and I would spend 90% of my time bitching and complaining about my challenges and not trying to really solve them.
I did play the victim and I was more than happy to tell my victim story. And then one day, something inside me just changed.
I vowed I no longer wanted to be the passenger in my life and just watch what was happening. It was about time I was the driver and take control of my destiny.
And that was over 20 years ago.
And since then I have still had challenges, heck it took me 8 months to make my first money online. But I never gave up, I can’t – it’s a destiny for me.
Look this may sound cliche – But if I can do it with my English as a second language anyone can. I see people wanting to give up, and I don’t get it. Really I don’t. One of the big reasons I see a lot of is… “I don’t have time” or “It’s to hard”….
Yes You Can Make Things Happen
If you’re truly serious about changing your destiny you’ll make time. Even if it’s only 1 hour per day, that one hour can and will bring you closer to your destiny.
And of course it’s not going to be that easy, anything worth accomplishing is going to be hard.
When I was first starting with my first business, I sold a few things to keep it going. Now what if I was not willing to do whatever it took to keep my company going? I would have missed that opportunity.
If you have these words in your dictionary “Quit” “I Can’t Do This” “This Is To Hard” or “Impossible” “I’m Not Smart Enough”. Or ANY word that is negative and puts you down. Get them out of your vocabulary right now, they’re serving you with nothing but self destruction and belittling.
They’re holding you back and guaranteeing your failure. Or maybe you prefer failing. Never underestimate the power of words. The words you use with the conversation you have with yourself is determining your destiny each and everyday.
If you’re constantly having a nonsense conversation with yourself everyday, and I’m taking about that inner dialogue you have with yourself everyday. And constantly telling yourself you can’t do things or things are to hard – you’ll never accomplish anything. So don’t be so surprised if your life is not the way you want it to be.
But if you try to change your inner conversation to one of telling yourself you are unstoppable, and you can overcome anything – watch how your life will change.
And believe me no change is not easy, you’ll need to work at it. You need to program yourself on how to develop the proper mindset and work at it each and everyday.
A book that I highly recommend is the Awaken The Giant Within by Anthony Robbins. I lost count how many times I have read that book. Actually the 30 day personal power tapes from anthony robbins is the first thing I used to change my life. And I still listen to them to this minute.
You can be a victim the rest of your life or you can be the master of your life. The choice is yours.
Be Honest With Yourself And Others
Yes, I know I can be very blunt and straightforward and for some it rubs them the wrong way and for others they like it. But that was part of my change in life, no longer was I going to be a sheep and just nod and be part of the boring crowd.
I will always say what’s on my mind and no I don’t care what people think of me. If I did I would never get anything accomplished and never be at where I am today!.
I was told numerous times by many successful people “it’s a waste of time worrying what people think of you, simple because people are not thinking of you as much as you think they are”
When asked a question I will answer it and I will do it with respect. If you don’t like the answer, honestly I don’t care. You asked and I gave my answer what you do with the information is up to you.
I say all this because to forge your path in life there are 2 things you must apply.
1. Develop an unshakable mindset of never giving up and that you can overcome any challenge.
2. Never worry about what ANYONE would thinks of you – be you and be proud of who you are!! One thing I absolutely know for sure is this:
If You Never Give Up You Can Never Fail!!
I know in my heart you have everything it takes to succeed. All you have to do is do the work to get it done.
