Connecting With A Success Conscious Mindset
One of my mentors taught me that whatever you focus on most of the time, is what you eventually attract into your life. He said, “whatever you focus on most, eventually become your dominant reality“.
Have you ever heard the statement, “success is a state of mind!“
There are people that I know who would hotly disagree with me that success has nothing to do with state of mind, but rather it is a natural result of proper planning, preparation and focused action.
Now while they do have a point, I believe that there is a simple exception to their rule of planning, preparation, and action.
Have you ever wondered how it is that two people can attempt the same goal in the same way and only one succeeds while the other fails miserably?
What would you call this? Sheer luck? Timing? Tenacity?
Well, I’ve found that many times, it really comes down to a person’s mind-set – which is their way of thinking and viewing life. Mindset determines whether you fail or succeed.
What is a mind-set, anyway?
Typically, mind-set refers to your predominant state of mind, day to day; it’s your consciousness; it’s what you think about, focus on, and expect from your daily experiences.
If you are failure conscious and think negatively, you expect the worst, you feel pessimistic about your options; that’s exactly what you’ll seem to draw into your life.
Likewise, if you’re success conscious and think positively, you expect the best, and you focus on successful outcomes, that’s exactly what you’ll seem to draw into your life.
But why exactly is it important?
Why is a success mindset or success consciousness so important to moving your life forward, and why do top achievers use this universal power for more life leverage?
There are 3 big secrets behind why top achievers use this universal power for maximum leverage in their lives.
Top Achiever Secret 1: Success Consciousness (mind-set) Boosts Your Confidence & Self Belief.
A lack of belief in yourself usually comes along with a sense of powerlessness and futility, which is the exact opposite of a success mind-set.
Lack of confidence means you see no point in trying to be successful because it won’t happen anyway. Obviously, this type of mindset is a recipe for failure in any endeavor.
Having a true success mind-set, on the other hand, means you believe in yourself and your capabilities.
You believe you can succeed at nearly anything you try, and you’re willing to give it your best shot. Even better, the more you do try, the more confidence and self-belief you build – until you’re virtually unstoppable!
Top Achiever Secret 2: Success Consciousness (mind-set) Strengthens Your Determination.
Without a success mind-set, one failure is enough to convince you that pursuing your goals is a waste of time.
Tenacity and determination don’t exist in your world. If you don’t become a raging success the first time you try, you surmise that it simply wasn’t meant to be. Unfortunately, few things worth having are obtained so easily!
A success mind-set, however, strengthens your awareness that a failure is not the end of the story – it’s just one more way that didn’t work out the way you planned.
In fact, a true success mind-set makes it obvious that the only true failure occurs when you stop trying.
Top Achiever Secret 3: Success Consciousness (mind-set) Encourages Fruitful Actions.
Have you ever found yourself wandering in circles because you didn’t know the best way to approach a specific goal?
Perhaps you had an idea of the best course of action but you felt intimidated by some of the action steps required. As a result, you may have kept sabotaging your efforts as you searched in vain for an easier or less frightening way to your goal.
With a true success mind-set, you’ll always know the most effective action steps that will lead directly to your goal. As already discussed, you’ll also have the inner confidence and determination to pursue them – which is a sure recipe for . . . you guessed it; success!
