For everything we want to accomplish, we can easily come up with a handful of reasons why we can’t do it.
“I don’t have enough time.”
“I don’t have enough money.”
“It’s not going to work so what’s the point?”
Think of a few influential people. Do you think Ariana Huffington, Bill Gates or Serena Williams have had moments where they wished they had more time, energy or resources? Of course. It’s part of human nature to question whether or not we have what it takes to succeed at something. It’s easy to cite external factors as the reasons why we don’t fulfill our true potential.
The reality is, it all comes down to mindset. Leaders like Ariana Huffington, Bill Gates and Serena Williams have been able to find unparalleled success because they took control of their mindset and focused on the psychology of winning instead of concentrating on potential failures.
Success in life is 80% psychology and 20% mechanics — what you do doesn’t matter if you aren’t in the right mindset. Understanding the ways psychology can work for or against you will help you establish a healthier outlook and put you in the right mindset to execute your strategy.
If you’re someone who often gets in your own way, despite having good intentions, it might be time to work with a Results Coach. A certified coach can help you to change your mental state so you can ultimately achieve the success you crave.
There are many factors that affect the psychology of a winner, but in order to start truly changing your mindset, you need to hone in on your ultimate goal. Your Results Coach can work together with you to fine-tune this vision. Are you looking to take your career to the next level? Deepen your ties to your family? Grow your wealth? Once you have your goal in mind, your Results Coach will challenge you to understand your motivation behind it. Do you want to further your career so you can create a better life for yourself? Do you want to work on your personal relationships so your life becomes more joyful and full of love? Why is making more money important to you – is it because you want to give back to your community? Gaining clarity of purpose and identifying your “why” behind the goal is the first step on your journey to success.
You’ve identified what it is you want; now it’s time to think about what’s holding you back. It’s not a lack of resources – it’s a lack of resourcefulness. Not only is being resourceful one of the qualities of a great leader, but it’s necessary if you’re looking to advance your life. Once you’ve accepted that you have everything you need to succeed, it’s time to turn inward. Your coach will help you look at the limiting beliefs that have impacted your success. Do you believe you’re not brave, smart or tenacious enough to reach the next level of achievement? You’ll work alongside your coach to break down these unnecessary mental barriers, ultimately bolstering your confidence and creating a new and improved story for yourself.
Now that you know what you want and have broken down your limiting beliefs, it’s time to start working toward the next level of accomplishment. Your mindset is everything when it comes to achieving your goals. When you view life as happening for you instead of to you and are able to believe that you have the potential and drive to succeed, you can truly accomplish anything. You’ll create a plan with your coach as to how you can achieve your goal, and then it’s up to you to keep your mindset in check. Of course, your coach will touch base with you along the way to not only hold you accountable but to discuss where your mind’s at. Stay motivated to think positively. If you start believing that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to, you’ll prove yourself right. As Tony Robbins says, “Where focus goes, energy flows.”
It’s time to stop making excuses and start working toward your goals. By understanding the psychology of winning with the aid of your Results Coach, you can make massive strides toward your objectives. Ready to transform your life?
