In a previous post I wrote not so long ago, I was telling you all about the importance of doing your best to keep a positive and healthy mindset. And as you might recall, in this post I focused a lot on the importance of feeding your mind with positive stuff in order to live a happier life in general.
Today though, I felt like taking the discussion a step further and talking about the impact your attitude can have over your career and personal projects, but most of all, on the level of success you’re going to achieve—regardless of what your definition of success might be. You’ll be amazed to hear what I’ve got to say…
I think I’ve made my point clear in my last post; your state of mind has a lot to do with the kind of results you get. And don’t get me wrong here; I’m not just talking about positivity. In fact, I think a positive mindset and a success mindset are two different things—related, yes, but still different.
What I believe is that in order to achieve any kind of success, you first have to commit yourself to do so. You’ve got to be willing to do whatever it takes. It doesn’t mean you’ll have to do all sorts of crazy things to get there, but you’ve got to be prepared. And I think this is the part most people miss. It doesn’t matter if your goal is to make a million dollars a year or to help a hundred thousand people get off the streets through your nonprofit organization, if you want to get there, you better have what I call a winners mindset.

Earlier this week, I was on a call with a very generous entrepreneur I know—a guy who has literally made millions of dollars over the past few years, using various business models. And as we were discussing the philosophy behind his multiple successes, he told me about his motto; figure it out and get sh*t done.
Now, while this may sound a bit obnoxious at first, I can’t help but think that this simple work philosophy—or life mantra, for that matter—is just downright brilliant.
Whenever you feel like you’re stuck, you’ve got to find a way out; there’s no other option. You don’t have the right skill sets to take your vision any further on your own? Go learn everything you can about it right now, and/or hire someone who can make it happen. Stay committed, set the motion and never let it stop. See, that’s what I call having a winners mindset. And quite frankly, I think everyone should be carrying this attitude when it comes to their dreams.
I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts this morning—Young Hustlers—when the host of the show, Grant Cardone, said something that really resonated with me. His thought was that no matter what happens, you should always make sure to embrace the outcome of your efforts. Whether you’ve succeeded or not—again, it depends on your definition of success. And then, if the result you get is not what you wanted, you’ve got a good reason to get back on your feet and try again.
So, my advice for you today would be the following:
Know exactly what you want, and be willing to do whatever it takes to get that.
If you’re going to achieve something meaningful, something that’s going to make you proud, you’re going to need a healthy mindset. And regardless of your goal itself—it could be to run a nonprofit,start a new business, become a network marketing superstar, learn how to use the Law of Attraction, make a million dollars, you name it—what you need is a burning desire to get things done.
Once you’ve got that, nothing is ever going to stop you. It all comes down to the attitude you carry!
