How To Reprogram Your Mind For Great Success?
When successful people are asked the question “What do you think about, most of the time?”
Their answer, consistently, is “what they want and how to get it”.
Thinking about these two things, is essentially what makes their thoughts positive, constructive, and success-oriented.
On the other hand, unsuccessful people think and talk about what they don’t want and who is to blame for their problems, most of the time.
As a result, their thoughts attract more of what they don’t want and hold them back from reaching their full potential.
Today you’re going to learn how to reprogram your mind for great success and become a successful person.
Ready? Let’s get started!
Your self-concept acts as your mental operating system. It’s where every thought, feeling, emotion, experience, and decision you’ve ever had is permanently recorded.
These impressions then influence the way you think, feel, and behave in the future. Your self-concept will then predict your level of effectiveness in every area of your life.
You might have an extraordinary ability in a particular area, but if your self-concept is poor in that area, you’ll never perform at your highest potential.
This explains why your outer world always reflects your inner world. The life you’re living is consistent with the way you think and feel on the inside.
Your Comfort Zone.
Your self-concept, your habit of thinking with regard to any area of performance in your life, becomes your comfort zone.
Once you get into a comfort zone in any area, you remain there no matter how capable you are of achieving great things in that area. For example, if your comfort zone is earning $40,000 per year, no matter what happens (recession, bonuses…) you’ll earn exactly that.
By the same token, when your comfort zone is earning $120,000 per year, even if you lose your job and have to start over, you’ll be earning the exact, same amount. You’ll always find ways to stay in your comfort zone.
This is why the key to reach your full potential, is to expand your comfort zone by raising your self-concept in different areas of your life and changing your thoughts and feelings about what you can achieve and who you can become in the process.
Reprogram Yourself For Greater Success.
#1. Develop Positive Role models.
Researchers found that many people who have accomplished great things in life had been avid readers of the biographies and autobiographies of successful people when they were younger.
They also found that people who have positive role models around them when they were growing up are more likely to become successful in life.
Associating with positive influences can play a major role in the level of your success in life.
#2. Identify Your Values In Life.
Your values are your deeply held desires and wishes, and the more your life is aligned with your values, the happier and fulfilled you become.
This is why it’s important to define the values you choose to live by.
The more clarity you develop about the key values that you wish to incorporate in yourself and your life, the more aligned your life becomes with these values.
You start to move more rapidly in the direction of your most important goals.
#3. Improve Your Self-Image.
The way we see ourselves on the inside largely determines how we perform on the outside.
If you see yourself confident, productive, and successful on the inside, that’s exactly how you’ll act on the outside. And the way you act will largely determine the results you get and this, in turn, reinforces your self-image.
Improving your self-image is especially useful before engaging in any performance of importance.
Before meeting a new person, applying for a job, making a presentation… see yourself performing with confidence and professionalism and this how you’ll perform in the actual situation.
In fact, by giving your subconscious mind the right image, words, actions, and gestures will correspond exactly to the picture you created in your mind.
#4. Boost Your Self-esteem.
The level of your self-esteem corresponds to how much you like yourself.
It’s important to work on boosting your self-esteem because the more you like yourself, the happier and more confident you feel and the better you perform in any area of your life.
And the better you perform, the more you like yourself. One of the best techniques to boost your self-esteem is practicing positive self-talk and repeating affirmation, in particular, “I like myself!” Say to yourself multiple times throughout the day.
You might find it hard to believe at first, but the more you do it, the more you’ll be able to believe it and say it with much enthusiasm.
#5. Develop Habits Of Self-Made Millionaires.
Below is a list of habits, most millionaires have in common:
1. They’re Avid Readers.
Learning is the best investment of your time. One of the reasons people become millionaires is because they’re avid readers. They make time for reading and learning and consider it as a priority.
Bill Gates has been known to read 50 books per year.
2. They’re Focused On Delayed Gratification.
Millionaires understand that in order to reach wealth, they have to sacrifice temporary pleasures for the long-term gratification that comes with success.
They have no problem turning down invitations, wearing inexpensive clothes, or living in a modest neighborhood. This allows them to focus on achieving their goals and saving for the next investment.
3. They Set Goals.
Setting goals is the way to success and accumulation of wealth. By setting goals, you define your future and you work your way backward taking in mind all it takes for you to get there.
4. They Stay Away From Debt.
Most millionaires, especially self-made millionaires have accumulated wealth because they constantly are living below their means.
They realize that interests accumulate so fast so they make sure they stay away from debt and if they even wanted to buy something, they save for it.
5. They Set A Budget.
Millionaires keep track of their finances and set budgets. This enables them to manage their money efficiently, so they can optimize their expenses and get rid of money wasters.
6. They Give.
It seems like the more you give, the richer you become. Millionaires are so generous, whether it’s giving away to charity, supporting causes, or just taking care of family and friends, millionaires realize that the most important thing to do with their wealth is to help others.
Your mind does not remain empty for a long period of time. If you do not deliberately fill it with positive thoughts, it’ll fill itself with fears and worries.
Your potential and abilities are unlimited. There are virtually no limits on what you can do, be, and have except for the limit that you put for yourself with your own way of thinking.
At the same time, you can reprogram yourself and change your self-limiting beliefs and alter the course of your life. You can become the best version of yourself by shaping your own self-concept and building your self-esteem.
