4 Ways to Obtain The Mindset of The Highly Successful



mindset and motivation success

It’s no secret that our thoughts lead to feelings, feelings lead to actions and then actions lead to results. Everything begins with a simple thought we produce in our mind. The mind is nothing more than a big file cabinet. All the information you receive is labeled and stored in various files to retrieve when necessary. And there is a file which we all have labeled as “Money File”

Whenever you get a financial opportunity, you go to your “Money File” and make decisions based on the information in that file. The only thoughts you can have about money is what you store in that file. Your decision about money is based on what you believe as logical, sensible and appropriate for you at that time. The problem is your right choice may not be the successful choice. In fact what you think as the perfect choice for money making may produce poor results.

“In investing, what is comfortable is rarely profitable.” – Robert Arnott

And that’s how rich people become richer. They store and use all the information that produce success. Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could also think how the rich people think? The first step to get into the mindset of rich people is to know how they really think. They think differently from the poor and middle class people. They think money and that’s why they get money!

Here are five ways you can easily get into the mindset of rich people:

1. Always focus on opportunities instead of obstacles

Do you remember the age-old questions, “Is this glass half empty or half full? The way you describe the glass will determine whether you think positively or negatively. Rich people are positive minded, they focus on opportunities while poor people focus on obstacles. They fear about the potential loss. Rich people look for potential growth in every opportunity and evaluate the rewards they can get from it.

Don’t make choices based on your fears, you will hear your mind telling you, “What if something goes wrong? What if it doesn’t work?” and more often you’ll hear this too, “It won’t work, so abandon the idea”. Instead of these negative thoughts, think like the rich-“It will work and I’ll make sure that it works!” Always expect to succeed, have confidence in your abilities and utilize opportunities as much as possible.


2. Play the money game to win

Let’s say you are playing a game. If you choose to defend all the time what are the chances to win the game? You’ll most probably agree with me, none or slim. But astonishingly this is how most people play the money game. Instead of creating abundance of wealth they focus on survival and safeguarding of their money.

Your goal should be creating massive wealth rather than having enough money to pay the bills. Your intentions will determine how much money you’ll make. Don’t guard your money, it doesn’t increase that way. Invest it, take the risks, get reward and that’s how you increase your wealth.


3. Associate with positive successful people

Motivate yourself by associating and following successful people. Make them your models, learn how they did it. Know their strategies and techniques to build a success blueprint for yourself. Be grateful that they have succeeded before you. You don’t need to struggle like them to find out the all methods and procedures. Tell yourself, “If they could do it, why can’t I?” Model their inner and outer strategies, then you are set to get the exact same results.

“Surround yourself with people who believe in your dreams, encourage your ideas, support your ambitions, and bring out the best in you.”
Roy Bennett

4. Make yourself bigger than your problems

The journey to getting rich is full of twists, detours, obstacles and challenges. The road is fraught with pitfalls and traps; that’s’ why people prefer not to take that road. In short, they don’t want problems in their life. Rich people don’t try to avoid or get rid of the problem; they choose to grow themselves bigger than the problems.

The bigger problems you handle, the bigger you become. You can then handle much bigger business in the future. Grow yourself to the extent where you can handle any problems that get into the way of creating wealth. Don’t back away from your problems, don’t avoid or complain about it. Be a financial warrior and conquer yourself.

Overcoming Plateaus: 6 Powerful Strategies for Breakthrough Success

A plateau is not a full stop; it’s a comma that allows you to pause, reflect, and shift gears



how to overcome obstacles for success

In the pursuit of personal and professional growth, plateaus are inevitable. They appear when progress seems to halt, despite your continuous efforts. But remember, a plateau is not a full stop; it’s a comma that allows you to pause, reflect, and shift gears. This article provides six powerful strategies to overcome plateaus and achieve breakthrough success.

1. Find Out the Root Cause

When facing a plateau, there is likely something causing you to sabotage your progress. Identify the root cause. What is sabotaging your progress? Examine your daily routine and how you spend your time. Are you wasting time on unnecessary activities? Or are you taking on too many tasks that you can’t handle?

Often, adding more tasks overloads your already tight routine and distracts you from focusing on the most important tasks. Therefore, often eliminating unnecessary activity will work to overcome plateaus. However, be cautious of not doing things right, such as tasks you have not yet undertaken or missing something. What actions do you need to take or improve to achieve your goal? Are you avoiding them, or have you not started yet?

2. Never Tolerate Problems

Once you’ve identified the root cause, never tolerate problems. If you tolerate them, you’ll end up staying stuck. You get what you tolerate. Once you recognize the problem you’re facing, never tolerate it. Instead, address and improve the situation.

3. Focus on a 100% Solution and 0% Problems

To overcome a challenge, it’s essential to plan how to get through it. Yet, people often find themselves asking, ‘Why is it bad?’ or ‘What is wrong with it?’ Questions of this nature limit our thinking, leading our brains to generate responses like ‘Because you’re not good enough’ or ‘Everything is wrong with you.’ These limited answers tend to resonate with the situation and drag you down further.

Instead, ask empowering questions without limits, such as ‘What is not perfect yet, and how can I turn things around while making a more positive impact?’ By asking unlimited empowering questions, you’ll shift your focus from the problem to the solution. Additionally, you will also notice that asking empowering questions can expand available options and allow you to see from an angle you couldn’t see before.

Focusing on problems rarely yields positive outcomes. The key to positive results lies in concentrating on the solution. The next time you face adversity and notice getting caught by unresourceful thoughts, snap out of it and direct your focus to a 100% solution and 0% problems.

“Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.” – Henry Ford

4. Cultivate Success-Driven Traits

Identify the traits you need to have and get rid of to become the person you aspire to be. Consider your specific goals – for instance, attracting positive relationships. To achieve this, note down the traits you need to embrace, such as being open-minded, gentle, healthy, and treating others the way you want to be treated.

Cultivate a positive mindset. Simultaneously, get rid of traits like criticizing others, having a short temper, and engaging in unhealthy habits like taking drugs.

Learn from individuals who have achieved similar goals. Study their traits, both the ones they have and those they’ve consciously avoided. Implement these traits to align with the person you want to become.

Once you have your lists of traits to embrace and eliminate, diligently follow them. Place the list on your desk or the door of your room, ensuring you read it at least once a day to reinforce your commitment to these traits.

5. Track Your Habits

Carry a notepad to track your habits throughout the day, especially those contributing to plateaus, as well as your new habits or traits aligned with achieving your goals. For instance, if your root cause is excessive internet use, record instances of mindless scrolling on social media. Note when you engage, the emotional state prompting it, and the approximate duration.

Calculate the total minutes wasted at the end of the day. This habit tracking makes you aware of the emotions triggering these behaviors (stress, boredom, and frustration) and the time wasted.

Additionally, track positive new habits, like reading good books and exercising. Document what you’ve learned from the book and the time spent exercising. This practice helps you build new positive habits by enabling you to compare today’s results with those from yesterday or a week ago. 

Moreover, consistently sticking to new habits for around 18 months transforms them into lifelong habits. Even if you take breaks, you will find yourself naturally returning to those habits.

6. See Obstacles as Opportunities

Every obstacle can be an opportunity to turn things around. If the economy is in a downturn, it’s time to recognize it as an opportunity to thrive while everyone else is struggling and focused on the problem. If someone makes fun of you or causes you trouble, ask yourself, ‘What can I learn from this experience?’

Alternatively, consider that the person underrating you is setting low expectations, which are easier to exceed. If your business receives a bad review from a customer, see it as free feedback that guides you on how to improve and take your business to the next level.

Always try to see different angles that others may overlook. This perspective can reveal aspects you might be missing. When you view a problem as an opportunity, it has the potential to foster growth.

In the journey toward success, plateaus are just temporary pauses, not dead ends. So, keep moving, keep growing, and make your breakthrough.
