Welcome to Success Psychology, the blog that investigates the ‘Psychology of Success’.
So what’s it all about?
If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably been pursuing that elusive thing commonly called ‘success’ for quite a while. Frankly, its a bit like the ‘Scarlet Pimpernel!’ Remember him? ‘They seek him here, they seek him there…’
So why is it that some people seem to reach the dizzy height of success with relative ease, whilst leaving the rest of us behind wondering where it all went wrong? What is it about these people that makes them so different?
I find myself asking myself that quite frequently!
What is the secret of ‘success’?
Now, I’m an avid reader and if there’s one thing I love reading about – its this very subject! I’ve read lots of book about success, goal-setting, law of attraction, defeating the fear of failure etc etc…you name it. I’m very pleased to say (and this is how things should be in the wonderfully diverse world that we live in) that there are a lot of different opinions about this. Yet they all share a common theme…
What exactly is this? Well, to achieve success you’ve got to have the right ‘mind-set’. In other words, you need to have the correct programme running in your mind.
Cognitive Behaviour theorists believe that the working of the mind all comes down to the way the brain works (and that this in turn feeds your emotional state.) To put it simply, your mind operates like a computer. In order to function correctly, you need the correct ‘operating programme’.
I’ve heard the above statement said many times. And it is very apparent to me that this programming all comes down to ‘conditioning’. Conditioning is basically a result of how we develop overtime, from childhood to adulthood. And there can be a whole range of influences on the way we are ‘conditioned’ or programmed.
It seems to me that those who are focused on and achieve success are the ones who have a well-developed ‘psychology of success.’ They are running the correct ‘operating programmes’ in their minds.
Which is great if you’ve been lucky enough to be exposed to the right factors, conditions and circumstances in the first place (and these factors can be either positive or negative on the face of it!)
But what about the rest of us?
How can we also discover the secret of the ‘psychology of success’ and obtain the dizzy heights of achievement as well? How can we too develop a very powerful and focused mindset which can help us obtain all our goals in life?
Ask yourself – wouldn’t it be great to know that you can achieve everything you wish for easily and effectively?
This is the reason why I’ve created this website. To share with you some of the resources I’ve enjoyed reading and learning regarding the ‘psychology of success’, as well as others which I’m currently investigating and implementing. I think that if any is worth sharing, then it should be shared.
