Mental Points For Success

Posted on Updated on

How do you measure success? Do you think someone is successful because they’re rich? Or because they’re happy with what they have? There are many levels of success in life. I don’t measure success by the amount of money someone is worth. I measure success by the happiness in my life and the ones that mean the most to me. If I wasn’t able to give to my family, I wouldn’t be happy with in. I not only want success, I want my loved ones right there with me enjoying success too. Yes, money can buy you lots of opportunity and support your family. But it can’t buy you true love. Here are a few key points I use to help guide me towards peak performance for reaching success.

  1. Goals
    Setting performance/result goals by our actions and determination. Goals make us take risks; not setting goals allows us to float in life with no wish to carry out anything.
  2. Focus and Control
    Focusing on your performance is the outcome of a thought. Bad thoughts= bad performance, good thoughts= good performance. Focus on controlling yourself, which is important when trying to reach your goals.
  3. Expectations
    Expectation takes focus off self and puts it on others who we do not have control over. Expect others to fail you and expect to recover from failure. We can’t learn if we’re not taking risks.
  4. Dedication
    High achievers are willing and want to work hard. If something is worth doing, it is worth doing well. Be confident, have self-discipline, and be dedicated
  5. Responsibility
    We want to feel loved and gain approval from others. We avoid responsibility to protect the love we want from others. But we are not perfect and must be willing to accept consequences.
  6. Attitudes
    A good attitude is when we believe and have hope when others quit. Maintain a not going to give up attitude, and think positively about your decisions.
  7. Learn
    Ask yourself what do I need to do differently next time? What does the right way look like? You have to ask questions. Learn from others who have walked the same path.
  8. Visualization
    Visualize yourself in the situation. A clear picture programs the body and increases chances for success.
  9. Mental Discipline
    Our thoughts influence our actions. Focus on a positive mantra. When faced with pressure see it as a challenge, an opportunity to succeed.
  10. The Winning Way
    A winner has goals, blocks out expectations of others, devotion, responsible, has a good attitude, confidence, prepares, focuses and thinks positively.

It’s never too late to retrain your mind to do better with your life. If you’re blessed to see another day, take full advantage of it and strive for greatness. What steps do you take for reaching your goals?
