Shift Your Mindset to Win

I am a strong believer that success, happiness, and goal setting begin with a healthy mindset. Your mindset and belief system affect everything in your life from what you think and feel to how you act and react to the world around you.  If you want to start living life on a new level, then you will need to make some crucial mindset shifts.

In order to achieve your goals, your mindset needs to match your aspirations. Get clear on what you want, set a goal and make a plan to achieve it. It’s important to have clear direction and know what you are doing.

You have many things that are very important to success (whatever your success is to you).  Success is a process, with a purpose.  The process boils down to how you spend your time towards the achievement of your goals.

Therefore, how we think largely determines our destiny.  Our destiny is found on the way, not at the end of the road.

However, going after your dreams is not always easy, yes sometimes hard. Oftentimes, it will take way longer than expected and it will be really, really tough. If you keep staring at the end-goal and comparing where you are at right now, you will find it extremely difficult to keep going and not give up.

Love the process more than the outcome.

What is a process?  A series of actions or steps taken to achieve a particular end. A process is marked by gradual changes that lead toward a particular result.  PERIOD! (Merriam-Webster)

Goals & Goal Setting

What are goals? What is goal setting?

The object of a person's ambition or effort; an aim or desired result. GOAL

Goal setting is the process of deciding what you want to accomplish and devising a plan to achieve the result you desire.

Without goals, we would just drift along. Goal setting allows us to be proactive, instead of just being reactive.

For effective goal setting, you need to do more than just decide what you want to do; you also have to work at accomplishing whatever goal you have set for yourself.

We can think of a goal as doing the following:

  • Defines the destination
  • Changes the direction to move toward the destination
  • Changes the mindset to adjust to and support the new direction
  • Creates the necessity to develop specific tactics

Goals tend to change your mind-set by changing your focus. And as your focus changes, it takes your thinking with it.

What we are today is the product of our past. By that, I mean our previous thoughts and actions determine, to a large extent, what kind of people we become. Those who act wisely now will have insight in the future to make judicious decisions. Set Goals.... they will Com2pass.
