You hear it every day, not matter what the current economic situation, -they- say -If only ___- you fill in the blank. I hope you are not one of those people, I don’t think so otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this article. Think about this-why is that the people who always complain about the economy, their job, or even the weather are never -successful?- Now I know success means different things to different people, but it’s the individual that claims they are not successful, so they must know their definition of success.
So how does a person become successful under any circumstance? I’ll tell that success leaves clues and all you have to do is follow them. In my reaching top achievers the number one key ingredient is in the way they think-.they have developed mental strength for success.
Here are the top three mental strength secrets that these top achievers use to achieve success:
1.) Top Achievers Operate from an Unbiased Perceptive of Their Reality: Top achievers take a realistic view of their skills, efforts and involvement compared to their desired outcome. If they don’t match up the NEVER change the desired outcome, they change their time, improve their skills or get more involved. They ask themselves this powerful question, -Are my habits, actions, and behaviors congruent with the size and scope of my vision?- Go ahead-ask yourself the same question and sit with it for awhile, then journal your answer. You’ll probably be shocked at the answer
2.) Exceptional Success Begins with Exceptional Thinking: If you went to work today because you wanted to, you are in control of money. If you went to work this morning because you had to, money is in control of you. Even in the wealthiest nation in the world, 99% of the population is being controlled by money. The effect is lack of money. The cause is thinking. Einstein once said: “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” And this is what top achievers know and do-change their thinking, and then the results change.
Knowing this, top achievers raise their level of consciousness by studying how other top achievers create wealth. Top achievers trades ideas that solve problems, not time, for money. Frustrated over those that are top achievers the -also ran’s- often scorn the top achievers for their own lack of money, yet the answer to earning more has been in their heads their whole lives. Ideas — it’s such a simple concept that the majority misses it.
The question is then, -What would you need to change in your thinking to create more money?- Again, take time with this and then journal your answer.
3.) Top Achiever Have an Enormous Capacity for Unrelenting Concentration: Top achievers are famous for fixating their energy and efforts on what they want to the exclusion of anything or anyone that threatens their focus. While average people haphazardly pursue loosely defined goals, top achievers concentrate on the achievement of a singular purpose with an intensity that borders on obsession.
Top achievers invest an excessive amount of time and energy in selecting their major goals and then double checking to make sure the goals is exactly what they want. While the masses consider making changes every New Year’s Eve, the goal setting and planning process is an everyday habit of top achievers. When the goals are set, top achievers put mental blinders on and move forward with dogged persistence and ferocious tenacity.
The question here is, -Does your results show you are more interested in instant pleasure or delayed gratification? Tough one to answer, and if you’re committed to creating more in you life you’ll take a log hard look at this question and answer it truthfully
So, there ya go-in your face questions about how committed you are to your success using the 3 key mentlal strength secrets of top achievers. I hope this got you mad and aggravated, so much so that you will reflect on the above questions; your answers and then take action. You truly deserve to have the life of your dreams!
