However, we can have either a fixed or a growth mindset.
Fixed Mindset is also called a rigid mindset, a fixed mindset is a belief that talent alone leads to success and that our qualities are fixed traits we cannot change.
This mindset makes success elusive because, if you believe that you either have the ability to complete a goal or not, you ill not even try to achieve it.
A Growth Mindset (also called a flexible mindset), is the belief that we can learn new things, improve our abilities with effort, training and experience.
How to Achieve A Success Mindset?
Think of your mindset as a lens through which you filter reality. A success mindset will bring you everything you ever wanted, while a negative mindset will keep it away.
The following is the most common mindset shifts for developing a success mindset and making your dreams and goals a reality.
1. Change ‘Try to ’ to ‘Can Do’
Saying ‘try to’ to complete a goal or task is setting your mind up to be okay with it not working out. This is a recipe for failure.
Instead, when you say that you ‘can do’ something, you are fully committed and have the success mindset of not letting failure stop you.
When you tell your mind that you are committed to success, it will follow your directions and give you the support you need to succeed. We all have the resources and ability to achieve all the things we want in our personal lives. If it’s possible for other people, it’s also 100% possible for us.
2. Shift a Fixed Mindset into a Growth Mindset
Only growth mindset can improve your ability to succeed. People with a growth mindset are more likely to be successful in all areas of life.
Nothing is impossible, the word itself says I’m possible. If you believe that, you have a great mindset and nothing will be impossible for you! If what you are doing isn’t working, do something else. Flexibility is the key to success.
3. Focus on the Journey, Not the Destination
Most of us spend too much time focusing on the gap between where we are and where we want to be. This creates a mindset of lack that keeps us from achieving the very success we desire and makes us more likely to give up. Focus on enjoying the journey and on your growth as a person, you’ll feel more motivated and optimistic on the way to your goal.
4. Focus On The Pleasure Of Achievement, Not The Lack Of It
What drives you most? The desire to feel pleasure or to avoid pain? While both of these are triggers, many people fail because they focus on avoiding failure instead of working towards their goals. If you fear failure and keep worrying about it, that is exactly what you’ll end up manifesting in your life.
