5 Powerful Mind Success Strategies

Building a business is a fantastic and challenging experience. You can wake up exhilarated to begin your day and go to bed feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. The key to success is to maintain a positive, yes you can do it, mindset.

5 Powerful Mind Success Strategies

Easier said than done, right? Especially on those days when things seemed to all go wrong.

Here are 5 keys to help you create and sustain a positive mindset so you attain the success you desire.

 

1. Surround yourself with successful and positive people.

The influence people have over our own personal energy is amazing. Moods and attitudes are so easily spread – think about how much of a difference a simple smile from a stranger can make for your day and then magnify it 1000 times to demonstrate the power of positive and successful friends, family and associates. When you have people around you who inspire you, believe in you and want you to succeed, there’s no room for doubts and even when they creep up, they’re quickly swept away.

Surrounding yourself with successful and positive people doesn’t have to be physically. Listen to success programs, read success books, attend seminars, etc. Surround yourself with successful and positive people by feeding your mind on successful and positive material.

 

2. Create a mantra or an affirmation.

Repeating positive affirmations has been shown to get people through tough times and to actually help them truly believe what they’re saying.

For example, “I am building a powerful and profitable business.” Many of the most esteemed business professionals have used the same affirmation strategy to attain their success. To find the right affirmations for you, consider writing a quick list of your doubts, insecurities and complaints. These can then be quickly turned into affirmations.

For example, if you write that you’re always feeling disorganized then your affirmation would be, “I am organized and in control.” Repeat your affirmations several times a day and feel the power of positive thinking.

 

3. Eliminate negative thoughts.

We all have negative thoughts from time to time, however, negative thoughts and emotions can derail us and prevent us from achieving all we desire. Of course catching those negative thoughts takes practice and persistence.

When you find yourself thinking negative thoughts or having negative emotions, find a trigger to turn them around. The affirmations mentioned above are a great way to turn the negative into the positive. You can also find quick pick me ups like a favorite song, a walk outside in the fresh air, or some exercise to help improve your mood.

 

4. Set goals/intentions and then be willing to let it go.

The law of attraction says that we attract what we focus on the most. However, desperation, needing your business to be a success, sends mixed messages and a lot of negativity into the universe.

Set your goals and intentions and then let them go. Believe in yourself and your abilities. A certain amount of faith in yourself and in the power of attraction is necessary. Give it a try.

 

5. Be grateful.

Gratitude is perhaps the single most powerful and positive tool for success. When you’re grateful for all of the wonderful things and people in your life the challenges you face seem significantly less important and are more easily dealt with.

Consider keeping a gratitude journal and make a practice of writing in it daily. That way, when you’re facing challenges a quick peek at all the amazing things in your life will make you feel as if you can tackle anything. Additionally, an attitude of gratitude helps you maintain a positive perspective and to face challenges as opportunities rather than obstacles.

Success is within your reach and with the right attitude you can accomplish anything you set your sights on. Embrace these five powerful mind success strategies and you’ll build a better business and live a happier, more satisfying life.

Reasons Come First, Answers Come Second.

Reasons Come First, Answers Come Second.

 

What are your reasons for achieving success? Do you have reasons for achieving success? Or, do you have ENOUGH reasons to achieve success?

 

Ask yourself, “Why do I want to achieve success?” What is the real motivating reason for success? What really motivates you? Is it getting out of debt and financial freedom your Reason? Is providing a better life for your family your Reason? Is being able to travel, or being able to give to a charity your Reason? Why do you want the success you are seeking?

 

Jim Rohn wrote,

“Reasons come first, answers come second.”

 

He discussed how life tends to hide the answers to how to achieve our goals. We may want to achieve success, but not know how to go about getting there. Life seems to confuse the issue and hide what steps to take to get to our goals.

 

Jim Rohn explained how when you have Reason, you will find the answers on how to achieve your goals. He went on to say:

 

“When you know what you want and you want it badly enough, you’ll find a way to get it.”

 

This is saying that if you have enough Reasons you will find the Answers. If you can’t figure out how to achieve success, it’s probably time to go back to your why; go back to your reasons. If you have enough reasons, you will do whatever it takes to achieve success. You’ll find a way to learn the steps the need to be taken. You’ll find the means to take the steps needed for success.

 

Jim Rohn wrote about his mentor, early in his career, telling him

“If you had enough motivation you could do incredible things; you have enough intelligence but not enough reasons.”

 

That statement applies to each of us. We have enough intelligence to accomplish our dreams. The problem is when we don’t have enough motivation; when we don’t have enough reasons to push us forward to success.

 

So a major key to success is to have enough reasons; to have enough motivation to do what it takes to learn what needs done and to do what needs done for success.

 

Here’s to your Success!
