Does using success mindset tools guarantee you success?
Thank you for asking, in a word… no!
So is it all rubbish?
There are TWO things I CAN guarantee:
1) If you don’t use any beneficial mindset tools and techniques I guarantee your failure. Or at least you won’t get as far in life as you could.
2) Using helpful mindset tools and techniques WILL give you the greatest possible chance of achieving success. At worse, if things don’t work out you’ll be able to handle failure and hardships more easily to quickly get back on track and focussed.
In other words, when it comes to achieving any goal and leading a happy life, even if we use all the right tools and have the right attitude the ONLY guarantee we have is… the greatest POSSIBLE CHANCE of achieving success.
I don’t know about you, for me, I’d certainly prefer to have the greatest possible chance of achieving success than a guarantee of failure.
It’s easy to have self-belief and a positive attitude when things are going well. The time we really need self-belief and a positive attitude is when things are not going so well.
The time to learn mindset tools and nurture the positive attitude needed for success is when things are going well.
Think about this for a moment, when does an athlete train for a sporting event? Do they train and prepare during the event or before the event so they’re ready to cope with whatever is thrown at them during the event?
Obviously, they train before the event. The trick is to remember the right tool to use when you need to use it. It’s an even bigger trick to nurture a positive attitude so the right attitude is there no matter what life throws at you.
With all that in mind, I have a gift for you, it’s a sack load of tools and concepts in the form of an ebook just clickerate here to download it. It’s only 9 pages of A4 but it’s packed solid with usable mindset stuff and you don’t even have to give me your email address.
If you have the ebook already may I suggest you read it again, you might be reminded of something you forgot.
Once you’ve read the book I suggest you pick just one tool, two at the most and give it/them a go and see what happens. If you pick more than two you’re more likely to become overwhelmed and you won’t do any of them.
Having a positive attitude and using any one of those tools will not guarantee you success but will give you the greatest possible chance of achieving success, manage change and/or building resilience.
