3 Mental Shifts For A Highly Successful Life
“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
– Wayne Dyer
Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. There are two sides to a coin. There’s more to the tip of an iceberg. You get the idea.
When it comes to finding motivation, your mindset plays an important role. As Henry Ford once said, “If you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.”
The way we look at situations and deal with them says a lot about who we are. If you find fault in everything and always find an excuse to put yourself down, you’re never going to grow.
As cliché as it sounds, a positive mindset holds the power to conquer mountains and achieve greatness.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at 3 mental shifts that can help transform your life positively:
Stop Comparing Yourself to Others
This is easier said than done, especially when you’re working in sales. Not only is your work environment highly competitive, it’s stressful. It’s become natural to compare yourself to successful colleagues.
From how many clients we bring in to wrapping up as many projects as we can, we always find ourselves competing with others.
However, the only person you should be competing with is yourself. From your wealth and appearance to your success, you shouldn’t have to compare yourself to others. Every individual is different. Everyone has their own abilities and talents.
The presence of someone’s talents isn’t equal to the absence of your own.
Keep An Open Mind
If you want to truly broaden your horizons, keep an open mind. Remember that you don’t know everything. We convince ourselves that we are experts in our specific field, but there will always be someone better. There will always be someone more talented, more gifted.
However, instead of comparing yourself to them, think about what you can learn from them. Perhaps they have some tips on how to deal with clients or stressful projects that can help you in the long run.
There’s always room for learning and growing.
Appreciate Your Efforts
You work just as hard as everyone else. It’s understandable that you’ve convinced yourself that no matter what you do, it’s never good enough. However, every little effort counts.
Give yourself a mental break by treating yourself over the weekends. Keep a diary or journal to record all your weekly achievements. This will help you appreciate yourself more and help you realize your talents.
These are just a few changes you can make to transform your mindset.
