Success Mindset: Each of us has the capacity to change our minds and the way that we think. We can change our mindset if the current one is not working for us; and most of us could use an upgrade. Keeping in mind that a belief is only a thought that we keep thinking, it’s easy to understand how simple it is to change a belief and thus change a mindset.
All of the personal development books that you will no doubt read, hear and absorb on the road to entrepreneurship and business must be preceded by self-awareness.
Truth be told, all of the books, DVDs, seminars and coaching really won’t sink in if you have not crossed the threshold of self-awareness. Are you aware of what you are thinking? Have you become the observer of your thoughts? Do you analyze why you do the things you do? Do you question your motives?
If the answer is yes, then you are standing at the door of personal expansion, and are ready for Tony Robbins’ 4 Simple Steps that will move you into developing a new success mindset:
1. Select an area of your life that you would like to improve and describe what that area is like for you currently. Be Specific.
For example, your health may be poor. You may be overweight and suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure and fatigue.
2. Write down the rituals that have shaped your current condition in this area. Be honest.
For example, you may eat processed foods, sugary snacks, drink sodas, don’t eat vegetables or exercise regularly. You may not drink enough water, and you may not get enough sleep.
3. Write down what you want. What is your compelling vision? Be specific.
For example, you want to be healthy in order to live a long prosperous life; to be around for your children and grandchildren or to be the example of health for your family. This is more important than just losing weight, or fitting into certain size clothing.
4. Write down rituals that will get you your compelling vision. What do you need to do differently each day to get what you want?
For example, you will wake up at 6 am to meditate for 30 minutes, prepare a healthy breakfast of oatmeal and fresh berries, and you will walk for 30 minutes every day.
Writing everything down in a journal, rather than on loose sheets of paper, will give your work the respect it deserves. You must make that small shift for yourself, because truly this is some of the most important work you can do for yourself.
This is far more important and valuable than any marketing strategy that you could ever implement.
Keep this in mind as you move toward your vision whatever it is…
“It is not what we get that makes us happy, but it is who we become and what we are able to give, because we have become more. That sense of contribution is what creates the deepest meaning.” – Tony Robbins
