There are many things that people strive for in life. Two of them are happiness and success. Ideally, you’d want to live your life stress-free, without any of the worries that take your focus away from how to get to where you want to be. Having the right mindset is crucial for manifesting the life that you want.
If you want to learn how having the right mindset will assist you in achieving your goals, you should adhere to the following ‘mindset models’.
You can develop your side hustle like me and at some point, you’ll be sure to quit your 9-5 job as the workflow lets you explore your interests freely!
Getting the right mindset also entails making difficult decisions. One decision that you may need to consider making is to quit the 9-5 job immediately.
Why would you want to consider this? Of course, going to your job may provide you with the necessary income to get the things you need on a daily or monthly basis, but is that what you want your life to be? Simply getting by and surviving?
Would you not rather live a life that is manifested not only by the success of your ideas but also includes enjoying the fruits of your labor?!
Provide Value: Always Be in Motion
Stagnation is bound to cause negative thinking. I’ve experienced it myself. It can cause you to lose track of the end goal. One way to alleviate this issue is to always remain in motion. One way to understand how ‘mindset models’ such as these can help you is to understand this parable.
Isaac Newton articulated what the laws of physics are hundreds of years ago. The law of motion states that people view objects as either remaining at rest or in continuous motion at a constant velocity unless an external force acts upon it.
Being in motion and leveraging any momentum that you have is key to maintaining the right mindset. One thing that you might need to do is change your relationship with your day job and throw yourself fully into finding something that forces you to be creative, as opposed to remaining in a mundane loop.
Revisit Your Vision Daily
Always keeping the end goal in mind is imperative to maintain the right mindset. So often we get distracted by the challenges of daily life as they demand our immediate attention. Many are content remaining where they are but doing this can cause you to lose track of what you are trying to achieve in your limited time here on Earth.
One thing you may have to do is quit your 9-5 job in order to embark upon this journey. However, if you are a person that is constantly in motion and revisiting your vision and goals daily, you are already well on your way to success. Sometimes, you may need to remind yourself hourly of what you are trying to achieve.
For example, if you are looking to gain financial independence, you may need to quit your day job and find an outlet that will permit you to develop into that state of being.
If you are starting a business and are not immediately profitable, remind yourself that it is a process and that success almost never happens overnight.
Constantly revisit your vision daily and understand the sacrifices that will be required of you to achieve whatever goals you have in mind for yourself. Revisiting your vision daily is one of many ‘mindset models’ that will help you in your journey.
Educate Yourself Everyday with Podcasts and Reading
The mind is a terrible thing to waste, and to keep your mind sharp, you’ll want to take advantage of the information that is around you. Whether these are books, audiobooks, documentaries, or podcasts, these activities can *only* benefit you and your mental mindset.
Besides, these activities have also been proven to be a great way to relieve stress. Sometimes, you may just want to unwind and relax, but why not learn something new at the same time? You only stand to gain knowledge.
Constantly learning is one of the many effective ‘mindset models’ that you can utilize to keep your mindset steady. If you are trying to achieve a certain goal, you can read excerpts and books from people who are already at the place that you are trying to reach.
If you’re not so clear on where you want to go then it’s still healthy to expand your mind with non-fiction. Reading will keep you engaged and more importantly informed. ‘Mindset models’ such as these will put you in the right direction.
Put Yourself in Challenging Situations
Finally, you will feel invigorated by getting out of your comfort zone by putting yourself in challenging situations. Out of all the ‘mindset models’, you can implement, giving yourself a challenge is perhaps the most enriching thing that you can do.
“Show me someone who has done something worthwhile, and I’ll show you someone who has overcome adversity.”– Lou Holtz
You will not become better at anything if you continue to seek the easy way out. The only way you will better yourself is by challenging yourself. It will increase your confidence in your ability to accomplish a certain task the next time. Challenges overcome to grow your belief in yourself, which is the single most important thing you need in order to become successful.
Maybe one challenge you can start with is quitting your 9-5 job or trade it for two jobs like me. If we find ourselves in a difficult position, we may feel like quitting. We may even be justified in doing so. However, challenging yourself is the first step towards what will certainly be a much greater reward as it will help you develop the right mindset going forward.
These are a few mindset models that you can use at your disposal to help improve your mindset and become more productive. Follow them accordingly, and you will see the results reflected in your daily life. Quit the 9-5 job or having two jobs will help you have the right mindset and start unleashing your true potential.
