We are talking about mindset and how we are getting exactly what we want out of life. We really can! We all have goals and plans to do, places to go, people we want to see, big things to accomplish and there is a way to get everything relatively speaking. And it’s all based on your mindset.
The key concept where it all boils down to is our thoughts shape our behavior. What we think affects the way we act. And our behaviors can impact the results that we get. It all starts with our mindset. Our thoughts. Here are 4 tips for you to get what you want out of life.
TIP #1: CREATE AN ABUNDANCE MENTALITY
An abundance mentality always tells you that there are more goals you can reach. More business opportunities for you to find and to accomplish. So, if you miss one, if you have an abundance mentality, you think positively. It will not let you down coz you know that there are more opportunities, more gains, more wins out there for you. It’s not a loss because you have an abundance mentality. Something about having an abundance mentality is expressing gratitude. If you are expressing gratitude for what you have, it seems that more things come your way. Because you don’t focus on what you have. You think about what’s already there. When you think about the positive and you are appreciative and grateful, it seems that things will just pop into reality. It’s already there. You’re just seeing it now because you are more appreciative and you are expressing gratitude.
TIP #2: GUARD YOUR MIND FROM NEGATIVITY
There are negative influences all around us. There is someone from our jobs. There is someone from the telephone when we’re talking with our friends and family. Of course, negative things are all in the media, the digital media, the print media. So, it’s easy to get consumed by negativity because it seems like it’s just coming in and get us from so many different angles. But, you can guard your mind from negativity and you absolutely must do that. By guarding yourself and your mind from negativity, that may look like changing your surroundings. You may have to change some of the places that you go. You may have to think about some of the people you spend time with. The way you spend time. The conversations that you have. Because you’ll be surprised that those negative influences and feelings and forces can slowly infiltrate your mind and you may not even realize it. Be selective on who you spend your time with. Be selective on what you allow into your mind, what you listen to, what you read, what you watch. Be selective and guard yourself from negativity.
TIP #3: DON’T WAIT FOR PRAISE OF VALIDATION FROM ANY OTHER PERSON
You may be waiting for a lifetime for the critic that you deserve from other people. So, give yourself a critic. Recognize your own accomplishments in your own winds. Pat yourself on the back. Don’t wait for other people to validate you and applaud you. One way to help you reassure yourself and praise yourself is to use something called “affirmations.” This is the way of simply just talking to yourself. Talking to yourself and talking positively to yourself out loud. I came across this affirmation : I am loved. I am wonderfully made. I am beautiful. I have a purpose. I am a masterpiece. God has a great plan for me. When you speak over yourself and talk to yourself, and talk positively to yourself, it doesn’t matter if anyone else fails to validate you or applaud you or give you a high five for the things that you’re doing. Say it to yourself. Don’t wait for praise or validation from other people.
TIP #4: BE YOUR TRUE AND AUTHENTIC SELF
Be real. Be your real, raw self. Whoever you are, be you. A lot of times we meet people and they try to be what the society thinks they should be. Because of their profession, people have expectations of you and people try to dictate who you are and how you should look and how you should act. But you have to be true and authentic self. Authenticity can be scary. Because when you are your true and authentic self, that means that you are vulnerable. But there is power even in vulnerability. Being vulnerable, being transparent, being authentic, that all foster trust. People trust you when they see you that you are consistently being you. Every day you show up and you’re the same person. You’re not pretending and putting on trying to be someone else. You are your authentic true self. That transparency, that authenticity, that vulnerability allows trust to be built. When people trust you, they will do anything they can to help you.
