Developing a Success Mindset in 7 Steps

If you are serious about creating wealth, or succeeding online then you either possess the proper mindset or will need to start developing a success mindset as soon as possible!

In this post, I will list 7 steps you can take to start helping you develop that success mindset and for sure get you on the right track.

developing a success mindset#1 Setting Goals

You always here about the importance of goal setting and I would agree, but…

…setting a goal is not just making up a wish list. Your goals are things that you believe you can achieve in a specific frame of time.

These are your dreams and your goals, but making that list and posting it somewhere so that you can see it every day will help keep you focused on what it is that you want, on what it is that you are willing to get out of your comfort zone for.

While goal setting isn’t necessarily all about developing a successful mindset, developing that mindset is a strong part of the psychology involved, but as I already stated, this is not a wish list, but realistic, achievable goals that you are able to measure the outcomes of.

For example, I am on my 90 day challenge binge right now and it’s all about creating and posting quality content on a daily basis for 90 days.

I am doing this with my person website (this one) and my newest website in order to show people that online marketing is NOT that difficult.

My goal is to post an article, video or podcast every day for 90 days straight.

I will also need to promote these posts.

It is my goal to make $1,000 dollars per week on average with this strategy in that same period of time.

Here my goal is to make money by generating a generous amount of traffic by developing my website/blog and driving targeted traffic to offers that I have on the sites.

I also have set a date for completion, which is 90 days or 82 days from today’s date.

This is a goal, not a wish and is the first step in developing a success mindset.

#2 Create Your Vision Board

Part of developing a success mindset has a lot to do with what it is you are focused on.

People that focus on success, that focus on the positives of life and the blessings that they receive are typically much more happy and much more successful than those that are not.

A great way to create the atmosphere for a successful mindset is to put all of the tangible goals that you have on a vision board.

This could be pictures of where you want to vacation when you quit your job or a picture of that brand new sports car you want to purchase when you hit a financial goal.

Whatever it is, print off a picture and post it to your vision board and look at it daily every chance you get.

This is your dream factory and the more you look at those pictures and the more you picture yourself inside of that car or walking through the doors of that new vacation home the more real it will become to your subconscious.

This is huge when it comes to developing your mindset.

#3 Developing a Success Mindset With Auto-Suggestion

Napoleon Hill is one of my all time favorite mentors and inspirations.

developing a success mindsetI read his book Think and Grow Rich at least once a year and always find something new, something undiscovered from previous readings that allows me to grow just a little bit more.

In the famous book mentioned above, Hill discusses one of the primary steps to riches called auto-suggestion.

Autosuggestion is nothing more than a psychological technique designed to keep your mind focused on those goals and your “why.”

The technique is simple. All you need to do is find a small piece of paper – an index card works great – and write on your card what it is that you wish to achieve and what you are willing to do in order to achieve it.

You then read this statement aloud in the morning and in the evening. I recommend that you read this statement aloud as often as possible until you reach your goal.

Autosuggestion is perfect technique for developing a success mindset.

#4 Read and Improve Yourself

Part of the process of developing a success mindset is growth. Anyone that is wanting to find success with anything realizes the need to grow.

Whether you need to develop skills that you are lacking or you need to start changing your self-talk, reading good books, books that will help you develop into a better human being is something you NEED to do.

One thing I will recommend here is to join a book club that focuses on positive self-help or inspirational books.

As mentioned above, the book Think and Grow Rich is one of my favorites, but there are others such as The Magic of Thinking Big, How to Win Friends and Influence People, A Purpose Driven Life, just to name a few.

Whatever you do, make sure that you are growing, that you are becoming a better you on a daily basis.

This is key to developing a success mindset!

#5 Inspirational People

You are what you think, but you are also a big part of those you associate with.

Whatever else you do, whatever parts of this post you take with you, the one thing you must understand is that you need to associate with people that are positive and inspriational. YOU MUST DISASSOCIATE YOURSELF WITH NEGATIVE PEOPLE!

This is very, very important. Make sure that you stick with those that are full of energy and driven to pursue their passions, their goals in life.

These are the folks you want to do business with, that you want to vacation with.

Do everything in your power to hang with these folks as they will influence you as well.

Keep in mind that as you are developing a success mindset that there will be many that will laugh at you and taunt you for even trying to change. Pay these people no mind what so ever and find those that have success and want to share.

I have never failed to find someone that was very successful that didn’t want to share with others. This idea that you can be a negative personality and be a phenomenal success is just not true.

Be positive, be inspirational, be successful!

#6 Use Technology

You are on the Internet for crying out loud…use it!

Go to Youtube and subscribe to channels that are uplifting and motivational.

Watch these videos, listen to these instructors of success.

I will usually go to YouTube and listen to one of my favorite Tony Robbins presentations and immediately feel energized and powerful. Seek these masters out!

Make sure that you are guarding your mind and that you are only putting in the information that will help you in developing a success mindset.

Be cautious, it’s just as easy to develop a mindset for negativity if you let it.

Be proactive and watch the videos that will get you closer to your dreams.

#7 Create a Habit

Make sure you do these things every single day…do not stop until you create a habit…a habit of developing a success mindset.

Replace your old, negative and non-productive habits with new ones designed to keep you motivated to achieve your goals.

Make sure you keep your vision board in an obvious location by your desk.

Post notes on your bathroom mirror.

Keep a copy of your auto-suggestion next to your bed, on your desk at work and in your wallet. Read it aloud over and over on a daily basis.

Scream to the world that you will be a millionaire, that you are creating a wealthy lifestyle, that you are rich today….and BELIEVE it!

Do this consistently to the point of it becoming a habit.

Developing a Success Mindset is a Way of LIfe

While it may sound like developing a success mindset is a strategy to be used until your reach your immediate and long-term goals, it is more.

Success is not a destiny, but rather a lifestyle. I love the entrepreneur spirit and hanging out with people that are willing to do what it takes to achieve their goals and their dreams.

Becoming a better human being, testing our character….developing a success mindset. These are the folks I want to hang out with and this is the life I choose to live.
