The Mindset, Motivation and Methodology for Success.

The human mind is the faculty of man’s reasoning and thought. It holds the power of imagination, recognition and appreciation and is responsible for the processing of feelings and emotions resulting in attitudes and actions.

Mindset refers to a person’s way of thinking and his opinions. Motivation refers to internal and external factors that stimulate the desire and energy in people to be continually interested and committed to a subject or to make effort to attain a goal. Methodology refers to the methods and principles for doing something. Success means the status of having achieved and accomplished an aim.

I have always been concerned that there are so many books on the topic “Success”, but unfortunately, many of these books are usually read and discarded with the lessons forgotten.

How does the above three, drive success? Simple; mindset gives you direction, motivation provides the driving force and methodologies sustain you. To be able to succeed requires a positive mindset, motivation and methodologies. Changing how you think will change how you live.

People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing and that is why it is recommended we bathe daily. We are a reflection of our thoughts. Our lives are the outward manifestation of the inner workings of our mind and our mind is unlimited in its potential to create whatever we desire. When we put our mind-power to work, the possibilities are endless. There is no limit to what we can achieve and absolutely no restriction to how high we can propel ourselves in life.

We have all met people who are full of negativity and doubt, who always second-guess everything and criticize those around them. Their negative mindset is like a net blanket, suffocating anything productive or beneficial before it can gather life. A positive mindset is critical to achieving your goals and dreams in life.

What does it take to put your mind on the path of success?

  1. Have a growth mindset:  Believe that your basic qualities can be stretched to bring you to your desired place. This will allow you to dream big and push the boundaries of your ideas to a new level. If you do not have a growth mindset, you probably have a fixed mindset which is dangerous because it will ultimately suffocate your ability to reach new achievement. Do something completely out of your comfort zone and your mind will become more agile.
  2. Believe in yourself: Never doubt yourself. Always believe you will make success and you assuredly will, and even when you fail, you still win because rather than accepting defeat in failure, you succeed by recognizing the lessons learnt as invaluable learning experiences
  3. Set specific measurable goals: Set daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and keep setting, probably for the rest of your life because a life without goals and objectives is one without direction. Also, find ways to measure the extent of realization. This will help you measure your level of progress toward your drawn goal.
  4. Live a healthy life: A healthy body has an extensive effect on the mind. A 30 minutes daily workout should do
  5. Manage your time wisely: Time is your most valuable currency and once spent can never be regained. Do not chase just everything you hear works. Choose a business or career you really enjoy and you are ready to follow through, something you have an interest or a real passion for.
  6. Don’t just work hard, work smart: Efficiency will always supersede effectiveness. Don’t just get the job done, get it done right and in the shortest possible time.

An exciting reality of the mind is that its contents and processes can be managed. They can be reorganized and reprogrammed. Do well to explore the treasures of life using your mind power. Have the right mindset, stay motivated and the result will always be success.
