Have you ever felt like there is more to life than what you are experiencing today? That you are somehow missing out on the life that you were meant to live?

What is really holding you back?

Is it laziness? Lack of motivation? Lack of time or resources? Lack of experience or education? Lack of extreme weather? Lack of skilled workers? Lack of available equipment? Lack of luck?

Most likely, there is a deeper issue underlying this “lack” in your life. “Mental blocks” commonly hold you back from achieving your true potential. In other words, the problem is in your mind!

Self-Limiting Mindset Beliefs Destroy Future Results

Henry Ford said, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you are right.” The keyword in his statement is “think.”

Mental blocks (or “self-limiting beliefs”) affect everything you think, feel, do, or avoid doing. According to American Psychologist Carol Dweck (ncilink.com/CDweck), “Changing people’s beliefs – even the simplest beliefs – can have a profound effect.”

How much we achieve does not depend on our innate ability, character, environment, or opportunities. Achievement depends on what we believe about ourselves, and about what it really means to us. That is called our “mindset.” Learning to control and change our mindset has a dramatic impact on our success.

If you want to achieve greater success in your life, you must do so with clarity, confidence, focus, and a strong belief it can be done. You must learn to destroy self-limiting beliefs and embrace a high-performance mindset.

Embracing a High-Performance Mindset

According to an INC. magazine story (ncilink.com/IncProductivity), researchers found that 92% of people say they never achieve the goals and resolutions they set for themselves each year. Most people do not really believe they will ever achieve them.

They fail “in their mind” before they even get started. In studying the 8% who do achieve great success, a common ingredient was discovered – they all operated with a positive, success-oriented, high-performance mindset.

These positive thinkers come from all walks of life. They can be married, single, or divorced; highly educated or high school dropouts; wealthy, middle class, or even poor by most standards. They are of a variety of ages and ethnicities. The fact is, no matter where you are in life or where you came from, you can set big goals and achieve them with the right mindset.

Here are seven steps to help guide you into a winning mindset:

Understand Your “Why”

Your WHY defines your purpose, belief, cause, or existence. In his amazing book, Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action (ncilink.com/Sinek), Simon Sinek says “knowing your WHY is the only way to maintain lasting success.”
