People that do not have winning mindsets usually don’t know what they want. If you ask them what they want from their life you will get a blank look and you will see their mind churning trying to provide a somewhat intelligent answer.
If you don’t know what you want then you will get what life throws at you. Unfortunately, most people live their life this way. Why do they do this? Because it takes effort to work out what you really want. And most people do not want to put in an effort to change their lives for the better.
People with Winning Mindsets always know what they want
A person that has a winning mindset will always know what they want. They will know where they are going to be in a year’s time, five years, ten years, and so on. Not only do they know what they really want but they have a plan to get it.
They take the time out to look at the different aspects of their lives and identify the improvements that they need to make. This can be anything from acquiring new skills, becoming healthier, getting a better home or car, or improving their relationships.
People with winning mindsets know the power of asking themselves the right questions. They know that asking questions about their life will stimulate their subconscious minds and provide them with the answers that they need. They use the answers that they receive to set new goals.
You can do it too
Find a quiet place with no distractions and take a pen and paper with you. Look at the different aspects of your life and ask yourself searching questions. You can take a look at the following areas of your life:
- Your business or career
- Your money
- Your health
- Your relationships
- Your skills
- Your contribution to the world
The areas of your life that you want to identify are entirely up to you. You know yourself better than anyone else does. Once you have identified these areas it is time to ask yourself the right questions to discover what you want.
So you could ask yourself “am I happy with my current business or career?” If the answer is “no”, then ask yourself why this is the case. You might find that your business or career is not providing you with enough income for example. So write down that you want to increase your income.
Go through this process for all of the different aspects of your life that you want to work on. When looking at your health you may decide that you need to lose some weight and for your skills, you may need to learn how to be a good public speaker. It doesn’t matter – just write everything down.
Identifying what you really want
When you perform this exercise you will probably end up with a number of things that you want to do to improve your life. People with a winning mindset know that they can’t take on too many new goals so they examine each item to see how badly they want it.
So if you wrote that you want to increase your income ask yourself how badly you want to do this. Then imagine having achieved this already and notice how you feel about this. Go for the things that conjure up the strongest feelings within you.
