Mindset is everything, it determines whether you will make it or not. Your mind defines what you think you can achieve and the boundaries you set for yourself. It determines the strength you presume yourself to have. Therefore you need to develop your mindset to the level that it cannot be defeated. Without the proper mindset, you are a failure before you even begin to try. More than the physical exercise that we do every day, as human beings we should use more strength in our mental exercises. There is nobody more prepared for success than someone with the correct mindset.
The ability to succeed is not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. Everyone has that great potential to change their mindset and change their altitude. The good thing about your mindset is you can adjust and alter it to adjust to new circumstances. According to the Neuroplasticity concept, the brain is like plastic, it can be shaped over time. The things that we do or say more often become hard-wired into our brains as habits. As long as you tell your brain that you need to change, you can train your brain any new skill. Push your mind to the limits and you will find yourself on the doors of success.
For things to change, your mindset has to change, for things to get better, your mindset has to get better. If you don’t want to change your mindset then change your expectations.
Reasons why most people do not develop their mindset
No human being is designed to do things that are uncomfortable, scary or dangerous. Our brains are designed to protect us from those things because our brains are designed to keep us safe and alive. Therefore in order for you to succeed and have all those things that you need, you will need to do some of those things that are scary, dangerous, and uncomfortable. Your greatest blockage in your success journey is your mind. That’s the battle that you need to win first if you are ever going to do anything with your life, the battle of your mind.
Your mind will always be in a state to protect you from anything dangerous, your mind’s first instinct is to protect you and to make you live but living without taking risks or venturing in the uncomfortable zones will not yield you anything worth living for. Therefore you need to be able to overcome your mind if you are willing to do something great with your life.
Program your mind to stop protecting your body from the uncomfortable situations. Because your limitation is not your body, your body can do anything that your mind tells it to, your limitation, your hindrance is your mind. If you can conquer your mind then there are no limitations either from outside or from within. If you need to triumph then you need to have the mental toughness.
The major asset to your dream is you. The major component to your success is you. Condition your mind and condition your success. The first place that can change your life is your mind, fear exists in your mind, so as success. It all begins in the mind. We are all telling ourselves a story from our minds, what stories are you telling yourself? There is nothing that your mind can perceive and you will not be able to achieve it. It all begins with your mind.
What makes most people fail in life?
Most people do not fail because of external forces. Most people do not need discouragement to fail, their minds are their greatest enemies, and they destroy every dream and every idea that passes through them.
If you can’t visualise your success then you cannot achieve it. You have greatness inside of you, but you have to condition your mind to see it. There is nothing as powerful as a changed mind. You can change your house, your car, your clothing, your spouse but if you don’t change your mind, you wouldn’t have changed much. Because the greatest change of all is that which comes through the mind.
Outward beauty may be overshadowed by a dumpy mind but a beautiful and strong mind cannot be overshadowed by any outward appearance. When the intelligent ones start speaking, the world listens but when the dump start speaking, even the world hides its face.
Developing a mindset is however not an easy task. It means challenging your own self, challenging your own beliefs. That is why most people end up sticking with their old beliefs because it is easy. But nothing worthwhile in this life comes easy. Don’t let your mindset be stuck in the easy road. In order for you to get the things that others don’t, you have to do the things that others won’t.
How to be successful
In order for you to be successful, you need to make your mindset your own playground. Teach your mind to see the opportunity in every crisis rather than the crisis in every opportunity. Teach your mind to see the positivity in every situation rather than the negativity. You cannot achieve anything substantial unless and until you change your mindset. Those who make it in life it’s because they programmed their minds that they would make it. For whatever you can’t achieve in life is because you have programmed your mind that you can’t.
To be successful you need to develop a growth mindset that makes you realise that you are in control of your own ability, and can learn and improve whatever you set yourself to do; that’s the key to success. Hard work and effort and persistence are important but not as important as the belief that you are in control of your destiny.
Mindset determines how you react to information and perceive situations. You need to programme your mind that you need to work hard to achieve something. Do not have a mindset that gets discouraged by setbacks, do not allow setbacks to dent your belief. Rather take every setback as an opportunity to learn and work harder to overcome the problem.
Growing your mindset is the best development you can because a developed mind can achieve anything. Your mindset is far worth more than any financial or business training. Your mindset is more valuable than any degree or any education. It is capable of earning you more in one year than any doctor, engineer or investor.
Start feeding your mind with the necessary tools for it to grow. Be careful more about the conversations that you have with yourself because those ones have the power to convince you either to go ahead with something or to give up. Your mind is your greatest tool and your worst enemy, all at the same time. What you tell yourself when you are alone matters.
Physical exercise is important yes but mental exercise is far more important. That’s why the Bible says in Romans 12:2, be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind. You need to recondition your mind every day because if your mind remains the same, no matter how many years you have lived, you will also remain the same, it has to start in your mind. It’s high time you take your mind seriously if you want to achieve anything sensible in your life.
Things you can do to develop your mindset
- You need to realise the need for change and growth.
- Start practicing your mind to think in a certain way every day.
- Push and force your mind every day to think in that way.
Your mindset can affect the way you think about everything. Be it on recovering when you are ill, being successful in a certain sport or even achieving at work or in your education.
Your mindset is your greatest asset!
Keep your mind focused on your dreams like a laser beam. Shine in any sphere in which you choose to exert yourself in. Your ability is something rooted in your mind, your capabilities are programmed in your mind. We are all born with a certain ability but we grow that ability through hard work and effort.
Your mind is your powerhouse, use it to change your life and your circumstances. You hold the power to make yourself great and that power is rooted in your mind. Nothing ever achieved was ever achieved physically before it was mentally achieved. It has to be achieved mentally for it to be achieved physically.
