This week I want to talk about success mindset. I know we’re all ambitious, and we have big goals laid out for ourselves.
But sometimes, we get in our own way!
I know that I can get wrapped up in my own thinking and self-sabotage my way to not getting to my desired end point.
This is where developing a success mindset comes in. Based on what I’ve learned through research and my own coaching experiences, my thoughts are what ultimately create my results.
If the thoughts I’m thinking are crap, I’m not going to feel great about what I’m trying to do, and I’m probably not taking the action I need to get the results I want.
To get the results I want, I have to create a positive thought that’s going to drive all the other components to the end goal!
This is how I like to do this:
First, I like to find evidence in my life that I’m capable of success. This can be in any arena of life. Find something you’re proud of.
This reminds yourself that you can do hard things.
Next I think about some setbacks and obstacles that could occur on the way to achieving my goal. I write out each of these and describe how I would handle every single one of them.
Thinking about them ahead of time helps me feel really empowered, and like I’m ready to tackle the tasks ahead of me.
I use these two steps to create that positive thought about my capability to achieve any goal that I have set for myself.
And any time I catch myself thinking the negative thoughts that aren’t helpful, I just tell myself that the thought isn’t useful and purposefully replace it with a positive one. No judgement, just replace it.
Build your own confidence. Your goals are do-able. You can figure anything out.
