New Power Briefing: My 3 Essential Components of a Success Mindset
What are my 3 essential components of a success mindset?
This is the second of new video Power Briefings on YouTube which I’d like to share with you (again, an upgrade of an older post – check out the previous one here.)
In this video, I consider what I believe to be the 3 essential components of a success mindset. I would summarise them as follows:
1) Remove limiting beliefs
2) Create a powerful self-belief in your own abilities to succeed
3) Eliminate fear by taking action
Now achieving these essential components is easier said than done (especially the first one!) But it can. Why? Because countless successful people have proven it can be done. At the end of the day, they are just as human as you or I. So, if they can do it – so can you!
Alright, that’s the pep talk over. Of course, we all need a little help and we can’t be expected to just do it on our own. This is why I recommended a couple of good resources which I’ve used in the past and which are detailed below.
So go check out the video now (it’s not very long!) and see if you can start developing these essential components too!
The video itself mentions three specific action points that you can take to start working on these three essential components with two excellent resources which I’ve used myself previously. I’ve reproduced them here for you:
1) If you have limiting beliefs you need to deal with, NLP has some very useful strategies for dealing with them. If you want to find out more, I’d recommend the following book: Brilliant NLP: Manage Your Emotions, Think Clearly and Enjoy Life (Brilliant Lifeskills)
(This is an excellent introduction to NLP which contains some very useful explanations on both the theory and practice of the system, as well as plenty of practical exercises, tips and real-life examples to illustrate how it works. Although the book might appear a little bland and two-dimensional at times, in terms of the valuable information contained within I would certainly rate it over other books in the field which I’ve encountered! Chapter 2, in particular, is dedicated to the subject of ‘Limiting Beliefs’ and how to deal with them.)
2) The mind can be re-conditioned to adopt more powerful self-beliefs. For this type of work, I would highly recommend the following book by Paul McKenna: Change Your Life In Seven Days (Book & DVD)
(Paul McKenna is one of the most well-known self-help experts who has written numerous resources based on hypnotherapy, NLP and other disciplines. I’ve read a few of his books, and this is one of my favourites. Indeed, I’ve used it a few times. What I particularly like about Paul’s approach is the interactivity: he includes a CD and DVD which act in support of the exercises included in the book. These are especially important if you happen to be an audio-orientated or, like me, visually-orientated person. Of particular use in respect of adopting more powerful self-beliefs is the exercise on changing your self-image. Of course, you’re probably not going to change your life completely in seven days, but constant repetition of the exercises will certainly enable to you to see significant progress over a period of time. All you have to do is stick at them!)
3) If there is something you have been putting off because of fear, why not just try starting it anyway? You may find that the fear will quickly dissipate once you get into it!
See you in the next post!
What do you think of this power briefing? Do you agree with the essential 3 components? Or do you think there are other things that you consider are essential for developing a powerful success mind-set? Do you have any other exercises or actions you’ve used in the past and which you’ve found useful? Have these been of assistance in getting you on the journey to success?
If you have, I’d love you to share them with us. Please feel free to leave a comment or post in the box below. Any feedback is greatly appreciated!
