Both success and challenge start in the mind; what we condition ourselves to believe most often becomes our reality. In other words, our imagination and the limits of our imagination create the frame or the boundaries in which we operate. The success mindset is about broadening your imagination, daring to think bigger and not be constrained by fear, doubt or other people’s realities.
The 7 steps discussed will introduce you to how you can develop your success mindset.
It strikes me that the greater the area you have to swim in the more you will explore and discover, and the richer your experience will be.
If you liken this to your life, your dreams, or your business the same is true – except that experiences, expectations, and self-belief often conspire to restrict the size of your ocean. They may not even be your experiences and expectations, but those of the people who influence you, care about you and spend time with you. Before you know it the vast oceans you saw as a small child have shrunk to a safe area by the beach, or worse a swimming pool.
What I mean is, we start out with great plans and great expectations for ourselves, but as things become difficult or doubts creep in we start to review our plan and create all sorts of obstacles and reasons why we can’t do something, or why it’s different for us. So eventually we settle for swimming in a smaller safe area.
