EVERYONE wants to be successful, and many people want to be rich, so why don’t they achieve their dreams? Although there are many distraction along the way, typically it is not the external factors that prevent us from achieving our dreams, but rather the internal barriers. According to writer Larry Atkon in his article “7 Wealthy Mentalities of Successful People” published in Success.com; there are no substitutes if you want to accomplish your lofty goals, and it starts with having the right mindset.
- Winning Objectives
There is no doubt that setting goals will help improve your overall results. Those who have measurable goals, are usually more productive than dabblers. Ultimately, it is not just about setting goals, but making them a priority, and doing what is necessary to succeed — including making sacrifices and breaking them into smaller tasks if necessary.
- Always Plan Ahead
People say that it is important to live in the moment, but research shows that those who plan ahead usually have better payoffs. The big difference is that future-oriented people aren’t afraid to make short-term sacrifices for future success, which is their top priority.
- It’s OK to Make Mistakes
The fear of failure cripples people from taking action, and brings them down the path of mediocrity and complacency. For example, if you are stuck on a job, you have the option to quit and start your own business, but due to the fear of failure, you may never give it a real shot. In today’s society, failure is a possibility, but successful people see beyond that, towards greater learning opportunities. Moreover, how you handle a situation when it goes wrong, is more important than when it goes right.
- Take Your Chances
Opportunities are everywhere. For example, you may have a unique strength and ability, or a potential partnership with a someone you met at a conference. When you start looking for opportunities everywhere, in every moment of every day, chances are, you will discover even more opportunities for personal and business success.
- Measurable Results
Research shows that the most successful people are those who aren’t afraid to take calculated risks —they are willing to go against the grain, and gamble on a worthwhile idea, even if they have to make small sacrifices. Let’s face it, if you are not willing to pay the price, chances are you are not willing to take action, and without the rewards you’ll end up getting nowhere.
- Embrace Uncertainties
Consistency is important if one of your goals is to accrue wealth, but it can also be detrimental if it leads you down the predictable path, and getting into an unproductive routine. Watch out for these open trap.
- There is No Perfect Answer.
Nothing is perfect, so don’t let that stop you from starting a new project and taking on new challenges. There is no “Perfect” time to get started, so don’t simply abandon your goals just because you didn’t achieve them the way you expected. Like most people, it takes a bit of time to adjust to this new mentality, especially if it conflicts with your personal lifestyle and world view, but if you keep an open mind, it may lead you to the success that you have always dreamed of.
