How to Achieve a Success-Driven State of Mind
Being positive and success-driven in your mindset does not have to be a foreign concept. Now you can have this frame of mind every day; it is all within your power.
A key point here is that you need to reframe situations. Turn them from negative to positive by changing your mental perspective. It takes practice but, over time, it can become much easier for you to do.
You can exercise your brain to become better at it, such as purposely putting yourself into tough situations to practice your positive responses. You are working your medial prefrontal cortex, which is the part of the brain where humans are able to improve mental strength.
To make the most of your talents and achieve success, you have to get back up on your feet after a failure. You can do so easier when you realize you have the power to reframe that seeming “failure.” Instead of looking at it as coming up short of your goal, say to yourself that you have learned from that event and now will try a different approach. Learning is a good thing!
Also, you will get what you expect to receive. If you expect negative things to come your way, then they will do just that. Thankfully, this approach, called expectancy theory, also applies to positivity. Keep a positive mindset and good things will come your way.
To maintain your positive mindset, choose to surround yourself with other positive people. Negative people can mentally exhaust you and be obstacles to optimism. When you encounter obstacles in life, your positive friends, mentors and other advocates will help you, and you will get back up off the ground.
Lastly, you have to believe genuinely in yourself. Visualize yourself reaching your goal, and that makes you strive even harder to achieve it. Combine that belief with the positive people that surround you and you are sure to reach higher levels. You are success-driven, and nothing (or nobody) will stop you from reaching your goals!
