5 Powerful Mind Success Strategies
04 May   by Lisa

We all face challenges in life.  Altering your perception of "change", in particular thinking that change is a bad thing, is a must.  Change is a necessary part of life.  It is nearly impossible to stretch ourselves and grow without challenges that eventually result in the change that we desire.  This concept can be applied to any area of your life.  From changing a habit or behavior to changing a job, a career or even building a business.  All these are fantastic and challenging experiences.  You can wake up exhilarated to begin your day and go to bed feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. 
 
The key to success is to maintain a positive, yes you can do it, mindset.  Easier said than done, right?  Here are 5 keys to help you create and sustain a positive mindset so you attain the success you desire.
 
1. Surround yourself with successful and positive people.  The influence people have over our own personal energy is amazing.  Moods and attitudes are so easily spread – think about how much of a difference a simple smile from a stranger can make for your day and then magnify it 1000 times to demonstrate the power of positive and successful friends, family and associates.  When you have people around you who inspire you, believe in you and want you to succeed, there’s no room for doubts and even when they creep up, they’re quickly swept away.  
 
2. Create a mantra or an affirmation.  Repeating positive affirmations has been shown to get people through tough times and to actually help them truly believe what they’re saying. For example, for weight loss you could say to yourself "I am slender and graceful" or "I eat only healthy foods".  To change a lifestyle to include exercise you could say "I love moving my body" or "I know how good I feel when I include exercise in my life daily".  When changing careers or starting a business you could say "I am successful in my new carreer" or “I am building a powerful and profitable business.”  Many of the most esteemed business professionals have used the same affirmation strategy to attain their success.  To find the right affirmations for you, consider writing a quick list of your doubts, insecurities and complaints.  These can then be quickly turned into affirmations.  For example, if you write that you’re always feeling disorganized then your affirmation would be, “I am organized and in control.”  Repeat your affirmations several times a day and feel the power of positive thinking.
 
3. Capture negative thoughts.  We all have negative thoughts from time to time, however, negative thoughts and emotions can derail us and prevent us from achieving all we desire.  Of course catching those negative thoughts takes practice and persistence.  When you find yourself thinking negative thoughts or having negative emotions, find a trigger to turn them around.  The affirmations mentioned above are a great way to turn the negative into the positive.  You can also find quick pick me ups like a favorite song, a walk outside in the fresh air, or some exercise to help improve your mood.
 
4. Set goals/intentions and then be willing to let it go.  The law of attraction says that we attract what we focus on the most.  However, desperation, needing to lose weight, stop smoking, including more activity or needing your business to be a success, sends mixed messages and a lot of negativity into the universe.  Set your goals and intentions and then let them go.  A certain amount of faith in yourself and in the power of attraction is necessary.  Give it a try.
 
5. Be grateful.  Gratitude is perhaps the single most powerful and positive tool for success.  When you’re grateful for all of the wonderful things and people in your life the challenges you face seem significantly less important and are more easily dealt with.  Consider keeping a gratitude journal and make a practice of entering into it daily.  That way, when you’re facing challenges a quick peek at all the amazing things in your life will make you feel as if you can tackle anything.   Additionally, an attitude of gratitude helps you maintain a positive perspective and to face challenges as opportunities rather than obstacles. 
 
Success is within your reach and with the right attitude you can accomplish anything you set your sights on.  Embrace these five powerful mind success strategies and you’ll build a good foundation for living a happier, more satisfying life.
