Changing your mindset for success is no piece of cake for anyone. If you came online looking for ways to find more success, chances are that you haven’t experienced much of it just yet…
Your mind is already wired according to what you believe, think, and do, but thankfully, by learning to consciously direct your beliefs, thoughts, and actions the right way you might be able to rewire your mind and shift your mindset from one of scarcity and failure to one of success and abundance.
In here, I am going to be revealing to you the path towards rewiring your brain and changing your mindset for success once and for all, so grab a snack and enjoy!
Be Clear About Your Desires
All success starts with a desire to achieve something fulfilling.
However, most people don’t quite know what they want to achieve; their desires constantly change; today they want a nice car, tomorrow they want to meet their perfect mate, 3 weeks from now they want to attain a perfect body and a year from now they haven’t achieved anything mentioned above.
If your heart and mind don’t settle for a specific goal it will be like walking without having an actual destination; if having no destination, you are walking in circles, and you will keep walking in circles until you get tired and eventually stop walking. Failure comes when you have stopped walking.
When you want to go somewhere you need to know where you are going so you have to be clear about what you desire most in order to start acting towards achieving it.
Prioritize Your Desires
People have many desires and usually, wish to achieve every single one of them at once.
There are people who can perform such awesome feats, but those are people whose brains are already wired for success, for many years, so success has become their natural state of being; their auto-pilot mode.
You can become one of those people eventually but since you are not one of those people right now you have to start small.
Choose a desire of yours that matters to you the most and focus all your efforts towards achieving it first while letting go of all your other desires.
Your focused efforts make you less likely to get overwhelmed while trying to achieve everything at once as well as easier for you to deal with possible failures and setbacks.
That way, your chosen desire will come about easier and faster and you will then be able to move to the next one.
Success after success your mind will be hardwired for it and you will become more and more able to manifest each one of your desires much faster and effortlessly than before, and even start working towards achieving more than one of them at the same time.
The more you succeed the easier success will come to you!
Believe That You Are Going to Succeed
When a goal is set, it is set for a reason… To achieve it!
You would never set a goal that you didn’t believe it could eventually be achieved.
However, for a goal to be achieved it always takes time and the more time it takes the more discouraged you get and your belief that your goal can be achieved slowly diminishes.
The more your goal stays unachieved, the more you stop believing that it can be achieved and quitting starts making more and more sense to you.
The secret to success in every aspect of your life is to never stop believing that you will succeed.
Failure is our decision to quit failing until we succeed. Success is our decision to keep failing until we succeed.
To guarantee success, act as thought it was impossible to fail.~Dorothea Brande
Visualize What Success Feels Like
One of the most powerful techniques that most successful people are currently using is visualization.
By visualization, I don’t mean daydreaming, but rather visualizing what being the person who has already achieved your desires would feel like.
That means that you have to feel the feelings of already being successful in the present moment, despite not yet having attained what you desire.
You have to imagine how it would feel like waking up having achieved your goal; how it would feel like going through your day as a person who already has that which he desires, touching it, seeing it, feeling it, smelling it, hearing it; how it would feel like going to sleep calm, satisfied, and grateful for already having attained that which you have always desired.
Techniques such this described above are being constantly used by professional athletes, successful entrepreneurs, writers, businessmen, and basically everyone who is wide awake and aware of the power of right thinking.
Perceive Failure as Part of Your Success
In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.~Bill Cosby
First of all, a goal is set.
The goal marks the beginning and the end of the whole process.
Success starts with a desire to fulfill a goal and ends with its realization.
However, what defines success and what matters most, is the space in between.
This space is filled with failure.
You have to make leaps from failure to failure countless times in order to truly succeed. It took Einstein decades to come up with the famous theory of relativity (E=mc²), and he was freakin’ Einstein.
Thomas Edison, failing to perfect the light bulb optimistically stated: “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
Despite their failures, they both succeeded in fulfilling their goals.
Every failure offers us lessons and prepares us for the next one, and failure after failure, we become increasingly able to deal with them, keep them under control, and even embrace them as chances to learn more about who we need to become in order to succeed.
Failures are what lead to a better understanding of what’s necessary to be successful.~The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck
According to this, success can be considered a game of numbers.
The difference between the one who has succeeded and the one who hasn’t is that the successful one has failed many more times than the unsuccessful one.
When you have failed 100 times you are most likely to succeed the 101st time than succeeding the 11th time when you have merely failed 10, assuming of course that you respectively learn from each failure.
Success will come about when we become able to embrace our failures, face them head on, and master our ability to overcome them.
Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.~Denis Waitley
Detach Yourself From the Outcome
Being attached to the outcome means that inside your mind, you are worried about not achieving the desired outcome.
That state, clouds your judgment, inhibits your actions and gives rise to thoughts of failure and unworthiness.
That way you become tired of acting without seeing results and that makes you more likely to quit acting altogether. You won’t believe how many people have quitted when success was right around the corner for them, just because the results of their actions took a while to kick in.
Detaching yourself from every outcome puts you in a state of not giving a fuck about what happens at the finish line while you keep running towards it.
That makes your thoughts and actions way more accurate, fruitful, courageous, and persistent since if you are acting from a place of having nothing to lose and not caring if you succeed now, tomorrow, the next week, or the next year, you are reserving all your mental faculties for determining what needs to be done to actually achieve your desired outcome.
You can think of it this way:
Worrying about achieving the desired outcome will never make you achieve it faster or easier, so you might as well let it go and keep doing what needs to be done until you actually achieve it.
The fucks not given are making all the difference; moments of non-fuckery are the moments that most define our lives.~The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck
Invest Your Time, Effort, and Money
To become successful at anything you will have to give it the right amount of time; you will have to put the right amount of effort, and you might need to spend a significant amount of money as well.
For example, if you have the aspiration to be a successful motivational speaker, you might need to buy a lot of relevant books, attend seminars, join online or offline courses and classrooms, try to reach people who have already succeeded before you, attempt to motivate people who are close to you as well as yourself, etc.
No person is born successful and no person succeeds overnight.
To succeed faster and better, you have to turn as many thoughts and actions of yours into investments.
When a thought arises or when you are about to take an action, ask yourself the following:
Is this thought or action going to help me realize my goals? Does it serve me in any kind of way?
If they don’t serve you, try to think or act in a way which you believe will help you attain your desires sometime in the near or far future.
What you think and do now, will determine who you will become later on, so try to make everything you do and think, count.
To go where you have never gone before, you have to do what you have never done before.~Kyle Cease
Taking a risk means that you are about to act differently than usual; you are about to do something out of the ordinary which stretches your comfort zone a lot, and there are many chances that this action backfires and you get damaged in some way or another.
When it comes to success, nothing is considered a risk since everything you do while trying to achieve a goal, ordinary or not, is of benefit for you.
It does not matter if your actions backfire or if they bear no fruits at all, you still have gained insights which bring you closer to being the person you need to be in order to attain success.
However, if everything goes according to plan and your actions pay out you will have made a huge leap towards attaining your goals and your rewards will be higher than normal.
Success is Like a Marathon
Studies have shown that intelligence has nothing to do with success. There exist millions of highly intelligent people who are extremely unsuccessful and there exist more mediocre minds who have attained success in many aspects of their lives.
According to psychologists, the most common trait of successful people is stamina. By the term stamina, I mean perseverance or grit if you will.
Success is like a marathon and not like a sprint.
You need not go all out at once but rather to keep putting effort steadily toward achieving your goals. It does not matter how fast you are going, all it does matter is to keep going until you reach where you want to be.
If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.~Martin Luther King Jr.
Whatever you don’t have now, you will attain, if you just keep working towards it.
Success is a very long road that might even take years to fully cross. Be patient and endure, and you will see that it is impossible to never arrive where you want if you keep moving towards there.
All Your Excuses in the Trash
Success is like a puzzle and as all puzzles are comprised of pieces, so is success comprised of its own pieces; failures. When a failure is overcome, it is like a piece falling into place, and when all pieces have fallen into place, the puzzle is finished; success has been realized.
Many puzzles are comprised of 10 pieces and some others by 100. To finish each puzzle you have to keep placing each piece into place until the puzzle is complete.
A 10-piece puzzle will be smaller but easier to complete, while a 100-piece one will be considerably larger and more difficult.
With the appropriate amount of patience, time, and effort, every puzzle could eventually be completed.
If you start working on a puzzle and you are constantly inventing excuses such as, “Some pieces are missing”, or “The colors of the puzzle will be saturated”, or “If I complete this puzzle the earth will stop spinning”, then the puzzle will most likely remain incomplete forever, and you will never get to realize its full picture.
The real secret of completing each puzzle, it to put aside every excuse and act as though it were impossible not to complete it; as though you were compelled to complete it.
Don’t Let Other People Know About Your Plans
Or at least avoid telling people who are not able to understand and support you.
Personally, I hate telling people about my plans for success; even to those who are closest to me and can understand me.
No person can think like you, no one can think for you, no one can ever experience your kind of reality, and no one will live life for you.
Everyone thinks they know better and everyone has to offer an opinion even when not asked for it; they will be constantly trying to alter your plans and actions to fit their kind of reality, or convince you that you have taken the wrong path towards success, even if they are not aware of it.
When you are trying so hard to keep moving towards your goals despite all the voices inside your head constantly dragging you to the opposite direction, it becomes thrice as hard to actually have outer voices joining on top of them.
Stop telling people about your plans and watch how much easier your goals will come into being.
Learn From The People Who Have Succeeded Before You
The one who could teach you as much as possible about success is the one who has already succeeded before you.
Thankfully, extremely successful people are often writing books and composing courses to help people like you and me understand more about the nature of success and what needs to be done to actually cultivate a successful mindset.
There exist two amazing courses which have helped me greatly to understand the power of right thinking and how to rewire my brain to start reaching new heights of success in every aspect of my life.
Those courses are created by the greatest of all and are called:

If you want to be the best, you have to learn from the best!
Develop a Nothing-to-Lose Attitude
You are here; success is over there.
The only thing standing in between is your limited mind.
Think about it! What do you have to lose by going after success? Your time? Your money? Your energy?
You are going to lose all of them anyway at some point doing some other meaningless activity which helps you distract your mind from actually thinking that you are not successful and that you have not attained what you desire.
You have nothing to lose by going after success but you can lose a whole lot if you never go after it.
If you play, you may lose. But, you will never win, if you don’t play.~The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck
My Last Thoughts
Now you know, but knowing is not enough if no action takes place.
The possession of Knowledge, unless accompanied by a manifestation and expression in Action, is like the hoarding of precious metals — a vain and foolish thing. Knowledge, like Wealth, is intended for Use.~The Kybalion
Start applying what you learned today and watch how success is going to accompany you instead of avoiding you.
The only thing currently standing between you and success is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.~Jordan Belfort
Stop feeding your mind with bullshit and start moving NOW!
Take a risk and try the Manifestation Miracle or the Thought Elevators course; invest some of your money as prompted earlier; this is what applying the knowledge means and this can be your actions taken while moving towards success for today.
