You probably look at the blogs or news articles about successful people and wonder how they got that way. How did Elon Musk go from starting PayPal to launching his personal roadster into space to advance private space exploration? While you might not become the next space entrepreneur, there are plenty of lessons from successful people that can help you right where you are now and into your future. So what negative thoughts are hindering your advancement or satisfaction? Here are thoughts to eliminate to keep the right mindset.
Destiny is predetermined.
So many people fall into the trap of believing that what has been and what will be are always the same thing. Paths are meant to be altered. Anyone can choose at any time to take the road less traveled, as they say. Shed the idea that the choices you make won’t have consequences outside of fate or destiny and work on following the path you want to follow most.
Always and never.
People who struggle with pessimism often make sure that always and never are key parts of their vocabulary. Things will always be a struggle. This will never get done. If you think you’re always one thing or never another, you will make these self-fulfilling prophecy come true. Instead, consider the possibilities. When you find yourself ready to say always or never, stop and reconsider the situation.
You have to be perfect.
Another thing that stands in the way of having a successful mindset is perfectionism. This sounds counter-intuitive because why wouldn’t you strive to be perfect? But there is more to it than just that. Many people use the idea of being perfect as a license to never try something. Why? Because they wait until they feel that it’s the perfect time or that they are as prepared as possible. But sometimes, you need to take the leap. And sometimes you even need to fail to gain perspective that will ultimately help you succeed.
Being overly emotional.
Here’s the thing. We’re not telling you that emotions are bad. In fact, emotions are very good and often lead to important insights into situations. Emotions and emotional intelligence are an essential part of success. But the pitfall comes when people allow their emotions to rule their decisions rather than simply be an influencing factor. Sometimes you need to separate from the decision and think about it critically before going back to your emotional response to determine if the two are in sync.
