You have probably heard the quote, “Whether you think you can, or you think you cannot, you are right.” This resonates with so many successful women because your thoughts, dreams, and ambitions are actually essential to your success. So let’s talk about why you need a positive mindset and how to get one.
Still not sure? Let’s look at this example:
Think back to a day when you woke up ‘on the right side of the bed.’ The entire day went better, right?
Sure, you felt better, but things were also easier, right?Things probably worked out for the better at work, your client relationships were probably more fun, and you might have even had a random stroke of luck and ended up with a free cup of coffee. You probably went to bed feeling happy and refreshed, looking forward to the next day.
Those ‘right side of the bed’ days are the best days!
But what was different about it? You woke up just like you did any other day of the week, brushed your teeth, and so on. The only real difference was that you woke up feeling on top of the world, motivated, and happy. This means that one major difference was your mindset.
Now do you see how having a positive mindset can have a dramatic impact on your business and life?
7 Ways to Get a Positive Mindset
The good news is that you can choose to have a positive mindset each and every day. Don’t worry if you have never focused on it before and feel like you don’t know where to start. Here are 7 easy ways to get a positive mindset for success:
1. Create a morning routine like a boss
It’s no secret that the world’s most successful people start their day with positive morning routines. If you Google it, you will find tons of articles, even entire websites dedicated to the morning routines of successful people.
This is because starting your day with the right mindset will boost your mood, increase your productivity, and put you in an upward spiral for success. Create a morning routine for success by choosing habits that uplift you like:
Moving (exercising, dancing, yoga, or stretching)
2. Check-in with yourself throughout the day
Starting the morning off right is super important, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t set the rest of your day up for success too.
Try to check-in with yourself throughout the day. Take notice of how you’re feeling – Do you feel run down? Are you letting doubt and imposter syndrome creep in? You’re not alone. We all have these thoughts from time to time, and you’re already a step ahead of most people by taking the time to identify that you need to boost your mood and mind!
If you need a boost to get back into bossbabe mode, all you have to do is something that makes you feel happy and unstoppable. Try turning on your own personally selected hype song or taking a 5-minute break to go for a walk. Whatever re-centers your mind and mood back to positive.
3. Change your perspective
Life happens to everybody. Things come up, and even the most perfect of days may have a surprise challenge. People with a positive mindset can take these situations and look for the good in them. For example: Being stuck in traffic allows you to listen to a new podcast. Or a client cancel gives you the space to meet a new client.
When something unexpected happens, think about the good that came out of the situation.
4. Change the way you talk to yourself
Words are powerful, and the way that you talk to yourself matters because it impacts you. Now is the time to listen to what and how you are speaking to yourself. If you want to develop a positive mindset, then say uplifting and supportive words. If you are being hard on yourself, think about what you would tell a friend, your child, or Beyonce in that same situation.
You are a boss, so step into your Beyoncé power and talk to yourself the way you would speak to Beyonce.
5. Focus on all the amazing things in your life
Celebrate your wins big and small, be thankful for everything you already have, and be grateful for all the fantastic things that are coming your way too. If you can dream it, you can make it happen.
6. Choose to show up as your best self
If you want to stay in a positive mindset and make your big goals a reality, it’s imperative to show up as your best. So take the time to think of who it is you want to be, and show up as her.
What kind of person earns the income you want? How does she act? What does she believe? You don’t have to wait for someone else to come along to start being the next-level version of you. You’re waiting for YOU.
7. Read Positive Mindset books
