The Success Mindset - The Easy Guide To Self Improvement And Positive Thinking - Part 1 Of 2

By Jake Sebastian

Self improvement and Positive Thinking are mantras you frequently get told about by Self Help Gurus. In fact you are possibly BORED STIFF of hearing about them. But nevertheless, thinking bigger, bolder and brighter is a good place to kickstart our quest to discover exactly what a success mindset constitutes. And more importantly, how YOU can get one for yourself!

In this article I am going to discuss the Success Mindset and how it has the power to change your life. Hypey sounding? No doubt. But true nevertheless. Successful people still have two arms, legs and eyes. So the fundamental differences are not physical. We all know of people (Like Christopher Reeves for example), who have every right to feel sorry for themeselves. In a wheelchair. Paralysed from the neck down. Yet he carried on raising enormous amounts for charity. Starred in a film remake of the Hitchcock Classic 'Rear Window', and wrote his autobiography. All from his wheelchair! Never a better example of 'If you get given a lemon. Make lemonade' has been illustrated. So, instead of bitching. Stand up and make the best of whatever your situation is. The success mindset starts exactly there. In the mind. So start seeing the obstacles as opportunities. You may as well smile when its raining. Because frowning isn't gonna close up the clouds!

Reading inspirational books and literature is a great way to start to help you to improve your personal attitude and heal your mind. A book of success stories can also prove to be encouraging to you when things get 'challenging'. You will not only learn from others' experiences and derive confidence boosting insights from them. But the advice and lessons can also be instrumental in motivating you to actively pursue your goals and to move ahead with your plans. 'Chicken Soup for the Soul' is a great book in this area. Or equally books by Tony Robbins like 'Unleash the Power Within' are also great.

Oftentimes, not knowing how or where to start is frustrating. And with self improvement, just like any 'skill'. Knowledge is power when it comes to success. So having a clear understanding of how and where to start is empowering and can provide the extra drive YOU NEED to hit the goals you are aiming at and follow through with ACTION (the cornerstone of any success mindset comes from taking action consistently and with passion).

As self improvement advice is often free and literally is scattered around everywhere in newspapers, magazines, books, courses and on televsion.

You might then think that the world would be a self-improvement mecca, and that there would be no problems regarding life, happiness and success? Hmmm 'fraid not ;0). The fact is that this is life. And it does not work that way. Advice on how to improve your life, relationships and finances may be everywhere. But solutions that work have to be carefully thought through. And more importantly, they have to be acted upon and be SPECIFIC for your situation.

The 'Success Mindset' is more then Guru speak for getting pumped up. It is all about laying down achievable goals and then following through. (You can subscribe to our Self Improvement RSS Feed to keep updated -

In the next part I will discuss EXACTLY what that means. And how it can work FOR YOU.
