Have you ever wondered how some individuals thrive and shine in whatever endeavor they pursue? Do you ever question why it is that someone who seems to have the ability to achieve greatness fail to soar? The answers may have something to do with mindset, which is a vital tool that impacts the conversations we have with ourselves about what we can achieve. Mindset can affect both your personal and professional life and is a distinguishing factor that can predict if a person will or will not succeed. We create our own realities when thoughts become a guide on this journey called life. A positive mindset will allow you the self-confidence to achieve your goals. Your mindset is yours to master if you desire success.
Be the Gatekeeper of Your Mindset
Mindset can be either positive or negative, but it does not exist on its own. You are the one who nurture your mindset, and whatever thoughts you feed it, will reflect on your behavior and attitude towards pursuing your goals. Your thoughts can become reality. For instance, you have a goal to lose weight, but you constantly have negative self-talk, telling yourself, “I’m just too fat to lose weight… I can’t run a mile…. I can’t do pilates….,” all thoughts that then become the things that keep you in bed when you are supposed to be at the gym. Self-sabotage has a way of sneaking up on you and is 100% consistent in following that negative self-talk. So, it is up to you to develop a healthy mindset that fosters positive thoughts, self-confidence, self-esteem and the willpower to soar.
Formulate a Winning Mindset
Once you accept your role as the gatekeeper of your mindset, you need to develop a winning attitude that will guide you towards success. Some people live by a mantra, like “Always forward, never back,” or they have a goal of facing each day giving everything that they pursue 100% effort. It is up to you to give your life meaning, and doing so requires developing a powerful, positive perspective that you will attach to the things that you pursue. Do away with pessimistic views that will corrupt your capability to strive for greatness, and face adversity with a thick skin, confronting each challenge head on. You will experience life as you view the world, where your beliefs, attitudes and biases shape your perspective.
Be Driven Towards Confidence
Self-confidence is a key component of success and so is having the drive to get things done and achieve one’s goals. Determination is an important aspect of drive, which stems from having the right mindset, that involves formulating a vision for success, having direct focus and the motivation to be persistent in pursuing your goals over time. You may take baby steps to get there, but as long as they are in alignment with your goals, you will get a little boost in confidence with each step. Drive will lead you to success and a more confident you.
