Definite Psychology To Attain Good Outcomes In A Digital World…
If you were to poll many successful people about positive mindsets, I’m sure most will give you a lot of similarities and a few golden nuggets that you probably never heard of as well. Getting to the mountain top in the game of life is a goal for most people. Success depends on how you define it has many peaks and valleys to go through in order to get to a positive outcome.
With many entrepreneurs and successful people, there are different mindsets that you must have in order to achieve success. Different mindset types whether being positive or negative may or may not work for you personally but they can be a reference point in order to get to your ultimate goal.
Let’s discuss a few positive mindsets that can help you succeed and leave a comment to let me know if any of these work for you.
1. Focused On Self Development
Self-development should be a focal point and a very important stage of your success journey. You can’t reach a positive outcome doing the exact same things that you were doing before you got on the course of achievement.
For example, a lot of successful people discuss getting up early in the morning, meditating, exercising, eating healthy, and a few other things. But if you’re a person that has never done any of those things, then success will probably be more of a difficult quest.
On the other hand, it still can work for you but very few people are going to achieve the type of success that they’ve envisioned without doing a morning routine. One of the best people who I personally read and heard talk about this is a guy named Hal Elrod. He wrote a book called The Miracle Morning which discusses the foundation of self-development through a morning routine.
2. Taking Action Is Key
Taking action is the first step to success and without it, progression isn’t remotely possible. You can talk about accomplishing goals along with other things but without action, there isn’t a path to follow.
How do you take action and attempt to create a successful future?
You have to get up and commit to your end goal and be prepared for obstacles. That doesn’t mean you’re gonna be an immediate success story but sitting on the sidelines or consuming content all day every day without action will get very little accomplished.
Think about some of the great people that we have today that took massive taking action to attain great achievements. People such as Gary Vaynerchuk, Arianna Huffington, Mark Cuban, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and countless others will likely tell you that having a positive mindset through taking action is a key to success.
3. Adaptability to Change
Learning how to adapt to change is not as easy as you think. If you’re a person that’s married to their ideas and believe them even if you are proven wrong, then changing your behavior will be very difficult.
Being adaptive and having the ability to change is a positive mindset for anyone who wants to achieve something greater. Just think about how many people that are stuck in their ways but you wonder do they really believe that a positive mindset can arrive from their own tainted belief systems.
I truly believe the people that can’t adapt to change will lose in the long term because there are certain things in life that will pass them up such as awesome opportunities. Sometimes the resistance of change will ultimately hurt you and possibly people that are connected to you as well.
4. Help Others Succeed
Spreading knowledge to help others is a key to success and one of the best habits that you can have for a positive mindset. Deepak Chopra discussed the law of giving in his New York Times bestseller, “The Seven Spiritual Laws Of Success.”
He says, “…your body and your mind and the universe are in constant and dynamic exchange, stopping the circulation of energy is like stopping the flow of blood. That is why you must give and receive…”
For most people, helping others succeed is natural and there’s much more that can be accomplished by understanding how it can reciprocate in the proper way or setting. One of the things that can happen is giving value and in the process building a community that can also help one another.
Almost everybody that reached a level of success had help from someone that guided them whether it was a mentor or coach. An experienced person that has given great advice about situations or a business sector to put you on a viable course to get to your promise land with fewer mishaps as possible.
Helping others succeed via building an amazing product or service for the greater good of a targeted group is amazing too. There’s a lot of different variations to helping other people succeed but to develop a positive mindset in doing so will benefit you in the long term.
5. Excited About Now And The Future
Excitement breeds positivity and when that occurs so does positive energy and the culmination of hard work. Get excited about now and for the future! There are a lot of things that you can be happy about including life itself and what it may look like for you when attaining your dreams.
I think most people believe somehow that they’re going to live a hundred more years on top of what they already lived. Do yourself a favor and look around and see what’s going on around you.
Look at how miserable some people are for one reason or another. Do it for your own knowledge and understanding to show gratitude for your life in general.
Also, notice how excited some people are no matter what their reason might be whether their life is great or whatever internal thing that makes them appreciate life and regurgitate positive energy. Give thanks and get excited now because the future will hold your results.
6. Solving Problems And Finding Solutions
Having the mindset of solving problems and finding solutions is key not only in productivity but something you can take as a lesson throughout the journey of life. When you find solutions to someone’s problem you are the most important person to them because of the intrinsic benefit that you brought to the relationship.
If you switch your mindset to helping others solve problems and finding solutions, then you can get whatever you want in life. I’ll give an example: when a homeowner is in a bind such as losing their job, low on funds to make repairs to the home and NEED to sell their home, that creates an opportunity.
To solve the problem you can work out a contractual deal with the homeowner to purchase the home and find an investor to sell it to for a profit. You just solved a problem and found a solution for the struggling homeowner by unloading what they perceived as a headache and you just met an investor friend who will very likely buy from you again when you get another deal.
Sounds far-fetched but people do this every day in the real estate industry. The previous homeowner is happy because the problem has been solved and the new homeowner or investor is equally ecstatic because they purchased a bargain (assuming it was below market value).
7. Continuous Learning Is A Must
In order to succeed, you must continue to learn as often as possible. Learning should be an essential positive mindset filled with positivity and you should embrace it very quickly.
Why wouldn’t you want to learn as often as possible when there is a multitude of free resources that you can learn different things from?
One place to find audio content to learn from is listening to podcasts. Almost all of you know what a podcast is but just in case it’s an internet radio show.
You can usually find a pre-installed podcast app on your phone or in the app store such as iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, SoundCloud, or several other directories as well.
Another free resource where you can continue learning almost daily is YouTube videos. It’s a huge how to resource to learn just about anything.
There is so much information not only on YouTube but all over the internet but podcasts and YouTube videos you can learn a lot from and its FREE content to consume.
