In today’s THE AUDACIOUS BABE PODCAST episode I am chatting all about the importance of having a success mindset and how to set you up for success.
A mindset describes a way of thinking and incorporates your set of attitudes and belief systems which are highly influenced by society, your parents, education, country you live in, religion and so on. You can have a set of attitudes or beliefs about everything and anything. It’s a frame of mind. JD Maier, of Sources of Insight states:
Your mindset is your collection of thoughts and beliefs that shape your thought habits. And your thought habits affect how you think, what you feel, and what you do. Your mind-set impacts how you make sense of the world, and how you make sense of you. Your mindset is a big deal.
Without the right mindset you might struggle to let go of outside influences and perceptions surrounding success and the beliefs about yourself and your own capabilities. Having the correct and a positive mindset towards success is very powerful as it will help you to move beyond these fears (even those you might not realise you have) and strive for your own definition of success. You will quieten that inner voice that constantly criticises, doubts yourself or gives you negative thoughts.
Believe me, my lovelies, you are not alone in this. We all, especially as creative, go through this. I’ve been there done that myself. Tons of time. Until I really tried to look into my own beliefs and value systems surrounding money and success. Also the language used. I made the conscious effort to change the vocabulary, the phrases and the words I use surrounding success.
My entire attitude has changed over time. This is a process. It is not something that will change over night. But if you truly look deeper into yourselves, you will discover your beliefs and maybe even realise that some of these are not even yours. They are based on society, on the way you’ve been raised or what religion you have been part of and so on.
So, we need to find a way to let them go now. We need to reprogram your mindset to a successful one. The exciting and good news is, we live in a time where a new way of thinking is taking root all around us right now. We have the freedom to change our patterns and our belief systems as we see fit. Your thoughts are your own. Your beliefs are your own. You have the power to change this at any point in time. So why not do this right now? Then let’s do this! You with me?
And for that we first need to establish – what does success actually mean to you? Download the workbook and define your own success factors for your work AND your personal life. Let’s set you up for success, shall we?!
Listen to the full episode to find out how I defined success a few years back and how the definition has fundamentally changed over time after realising that by my own definition I was huge freaking failure!!! Not anymore! I changed my mindset, changed my own success definitions (and these are very personal for everyone) as well as reprogrammed my mind.
