5 Powerful Mind Success Strategies

Building an online business is a fantastic and challenging experience. You can wake up exhilarated to begin your day and go to bed feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. The key to success is to maintain a positive, yes you can do it, mindset.

Easier said than done, right? Here are 5 keys to help you create and sustain a positive mindset so you attain the success you desire.

1. Surround yourself with successful and positive people. Online groups can lend well to this or they may not. Lose the groups which pull from you and sign up for newsletters or forums that encourage your growth as a professional. I can’t tell you how important this simple step can be to your success as an online entrepreneur.

The power people have over our energy is profound. Moods and attitudes are so easily spread – think about how much of a difference a smile from a stranger can make for your day and then magnify it several times to demonstrate the influence of positive and successful friends, family and associates. When you have people around you who inspire you, believe in you and want you to succeed, there’s no room for doubts and when they do come up, they’re swiftly swept away. You can get by with a little help from your friends.

2. Create a mantra, repeated pondering or an affirmation to help you in your focus and drive.

For example, “I am building a powerful and profitable business.” “Just do it.” “Does this activity bring me closer to my goal or farther away from my goal?” Many of the most esteemed business professionals have used an affirmation strategy to obtain their success. To find the right affirmations for you, consider writing a quick list of your doubts, insecurities and complaints. These can then be quickly turned into affirmations, repeated pondering, or mantras.

For example, if you write that you’re always feeling disorganized then your affirmation would be, “I am organized and in control.” Type out your affirmations or helpful snippets and display them where you read them often. Don’t think future tense but present. I am… not I will be..

3. Capture negative thoughts. We all have negative thoughts from time to time, however, negative thoughts and emotions can derail us and prevent us from achieving all we desire. In addition, negativity is energy draining. Of course, catching those negative thoughts takes practice and persistence. When you find yourself thinking negative thoughts or having negative emotions, find a trigger to turn them around. Perhaps a body motion like a clap of the hands or a little jump. Then tell yourself to stop. The affirmations mentioned above are a great way to turn the negative into the positive. Find quick pick me ups like a favorite song, a walk outside in the fresh air, or some exercise to help improve your mood. If you want an experience that’s more kinesthetic write the negative thought on paper then tape it to the office wall that you don’t face. The negativity is literally behind you. You’re reaching forward.

4. Set goals/intentions and then be willing to let it go. We attract what we focus on the most. So discover and implement your long range and short range goals. Think of several small steps to reach each goal and take action on three of those steps daily. Write down each step and place the task list on your computer desk the night before your work day starts. This way you are focused and ready to start just as you sit down. And for goodness’ sake, do not open your email or chat box.

Desperation and needing your business to be a success creates mixed messages and a lot of negativity into your mindset. Set your goals and intentions and then let them go. Write them down, focus and do a bit each day. Do not get so focused on the completion that your emotions become spiraled. This will cause a incongruent mindset (your mind and emotions aren’t synced) that actually hinders your progress.

A certain amount of faith in yourself and steps to reach your goals is all that is required. Don’t let yourself get overwhelmed and controlled by the tyranny of a cemented goal. Confidence will relax your mind and free you to focus. Do something daily that counts as a business activity, not reading email or studying a course, but substantial money making activities … daily.

5. Be grateful. Gratitude is perhaps the single most powerful and positive tool for success. When you’re grateful for all of the wonderful things and people in your life the challenges you face seem significantly less important and are more easily dealt with.

Consider keeping a gratitude journal and make a practice of entering into it daily. That way, when you’re facing challenges a quick peek at all the amazing things in your life will make you feel as if you can tackle anything. Additionally, an attitude of gratitude helps you maintain a positive perspective and to face challenges as opportunities rather than obstacles.

Success is within your reach and with the right attitude you can accomplish anything you set your sights on. Embrace these five powerful mind success strategies and you’ll build a better business and live a happier, more satisfying life.
