It's no big secret that truly successful people have different mindsets and are willing to do what others aren't. There are certain truths that can really affect how we see our current situation and where we are going. These are just a few of them.
There are innumerable books on the mindset of “millionaires' heads”, most of which contain conclusions similar to those that you will see in the following points. I share the best thoughts from the likes of Harv T. Eker, author of The Millionaire Mind, Dan Waldschimdt, disruptive business strategist, Timothy Ferris, author and investor, and Seth Godin, marketing guru and more.
"Someday" is a disease that will bring your dreams to the grave. Waiting for the universe and circumstances to align to finally start the project you have in mind or take your project to the next level is just another excuse not to know if we really are are good at what we want to work on most. Nothing is impossible if you are willing to invest the time and effort required. This is the most important thing, we know it is not easy and we will be tempted to give up for many days, but there is no impossible task for a person who is really determined to make a difference. The cost of making mistakes is less than the cost of doing nothing. This quote from Seth Godin reminds us that it is even better to go slowly than to be completely static. If you make a mistake, it's because you're moving. The person who wants it most is the one who wins in the end. It is not necessary to be the smartest, most talented person or the one with the most money, even if these are important points, they are not final. At the end of the day, it is this person who doesn't give up and shows passion for what he is doing who gets noticed. Dealing with negative people is the best way to lose creativity and motivation. Our environment has the power to shape our behavior, the main reason people are demotivated is the environment that surrounds them. Find your tribe, the ones who really drive you and believe in you. Nobody decides anything for you. All of your decisions are entirely up to you. Avoid falling into the role of victim, it is time to accept that we are fully responsible for what happens in our lives, be it successes or failures. The key to happiness is progress. Many of us could imagine that happiness comes from an endless vacation where nothing is left to do but rest, the truth is that this situation would make us immensely boring. Progress is the key to true human satisfaction, and best of all, everyone can have their own controls. What you focus on expands. This is how Harv T. Eker describes it in his book "The Millionaire Mind": Anyone who complains becomes a living magnet for unhappiness. The opposite happens when you are grateful, as evidenced by an article in Psychology Today. Once you focus on the good, your brain reconfigures itself and is more prone to focusing on opportunities rather than obstacles. Your income can only grow as much as you do. The reality is that most people do not reach their full potential. If you are determined to constantly learn and invest in yourself, and consider yourself the most important business in your life, your income will reflect it. The best things in life are on the other side of fear. This is what Will Smith mentioned when talking about his skydiving experience in Dubai. He mentions that the best things in life are usually on the other side of what scares us most, those are the steps that set us free and that we have to take all the time. The actions you take when no one else is looking at you will determine your trajectory. The real changes in our lives are determined by the little actions we take each day, especially when we are alone, at the moment when there is someone else's approval or commitment. The opposite of happiness is not sadness, but boredom. This is what Tim Ferris mentions in his book: "The 4-Hour Working Life". Boredom is the real enemy in our professional and personal lives. If you are not "excited" about what you are doing, your productivity and creativity are really affected.
How many of these truths do you accept and apply in your life? We all have the ability to evolve and adapt to new and better ideas of thinking that have a positive effect on our day. Remember, the key to happiness is progress.
