5 Tactics to Strengthen Your Mindset For Success
Everything you want to accomplish will either happen or not happen based on your mindset. These 5 Tactics will help you build your mindset daily.
If you want to smash your goals, then you need to strengthen your mindset. This is a key part of not just setting your goals but actioning them and meeting them. The bigger the goal the more you should focus on your mindset.
Strengthening your mindset is not a one-time thing, it’s something you must do daily. It’s about adding layers to your mind, to remove the negative thoughts and increase the positive.
You’ll always have to battle some negative self-talk in your mindset, but the more positive things you dump in your brain the more you’ll be able to resist this damaging self-talk you’ve got going on.
Here I’ve laid out the 5 Tactics you can take to strengthen your mindset on a daily basis. Include these into your daily routine and you’ll increase your chances of achieving your goals, especially your big goals.
1. READ A CHAPTER OF A SUCCESS BOOK DAILY
You should aim to be doing a minimum of 30 minutes reading a day. What should you be reading in this time? Well, something positive. Remember it’s all about building up positive information in your brain.
Read books on success such as Jack Canfield’s The Success Principles or books on people you admire who have achieved the success you want.
2. LISTEN TO MOTIVATIONAL CONTENT DAILY
Take a few minutes in your day to listen or watch something motivational. This could be a Ted Talks, a motivational program or an audiobook.
I recommend signing up to Darren Daily. You’ll receive a motivational/success video or audio every day. It’ll usually take under 8mins to consume and there you go, your daily dose of motivation and success tactic delivered.
3. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH POSITIVE PEOPLE
You are who you hang out with, so choose your friends wisely. You may have heard that you are the average of the 5 people you, hang out with, the most. So, it makes sense to choose those people carefully.
You don’t want to be the average of a group of people who complain all the time, make excuses and take zero action on their dreams. You want to be the average of a group of people who smash their goals, find solutions and not excuses, take action on every one of their goals and are quick to pick themselves back up when they fail.
When you, hangout, with those people you’ll learn how important mindset is to achieve all those big goals. You’ll learn their tactics and develop the language that comes from having a strong mindset.
4. WRITE THE 5 THINGS YOU ARE GRATEFUL FOR DAILY
Gratitude is essential for your happiness, relationships, health, self-esteem and mental strength. It’s been scientifically proven. So how can such a simple thing impact so many areas of your life?
Well, being grateful is not easy. If you’ve never had to sit down to write out what you are grateful for, it can be really had to come up with 5 things every single day. It forces you to look at everything in your life and appreciate the smallest of things that have had an impact on your day.
Notice I didn’t say positive impact, that’s because the best place to be in, is when you can take the negative things and be grateful for them too. This is a major shift in mindset, that can give you the edge to reach huge out the park goals.
5. MONITOR YOUR NEGATIVE SELF-TALK
We all do this daily, negative self-talk is the silent killer of dreams and hopes every day. If anyone else was to say the things we say to ourselves in our mind we would slap them. So, I’m gonna suggest you mentally slap yourself in a loving way of course.
Tell your crazy negative talker that you appreciate their opinion but you got this. Every tactic before this one will help you to silence this voice, but you need to watch it carefully.
For the next 7 days, every time you say something negative to yourself write it down. At the end of the week look at what you’ve written down, is any of it true? I guarantee that it’s not. I want you to self-correct with the truth and burn your negative self-talk notes to ashes.
