Positive thoughts are, without a doubt, the most powerful tool that we have in our self-development arsenal. Without this core component under our belt, tasks such as getting in shape, making more money, and building healthy relationships become impossible. A great way to think about this is imagining a multi-million-dollar yacht sitting in the harbor: Without a captain or, in this case, our positive mindset, the boat will never set sail. If you want to harness the power of your intentions and make your goals manifest into reality, here’s how to get started.
Slow-Roll Your Success
Have you ever found yourself with the urge to become successful or abundant? The idea may have sparked after you watched an inspirational movie, built a vision board, or drove through a swanky neighborhood.
Whatever your case may be, your next step may have been to kick your effort into overdrive and set a course for a new life filled with money, happiness, and freedom.
However, after a few weeks of non-stop effort within your workplace and personal life, you hit a brick wall: You’ve burned yourself out, and the thought of being productive in the subsequent days seems daunting.
If you’re currently in this position or have experienced this in the past, it’s OK! Instead, we encourage you to slow-roll your mindset into a sustainable and manageable routine that grows with each day. Located below are some tips to get you started:
- For one week, wake up and go to bed at the same time.
- Plan one day out of your week that you will dedicate to fitness and wellness.
- Each day before work starts, spend 5 or 10 minutes reading motivational literature and improving your mindset.
- Instead of buying snacks during your next grocery haul, choose health-conscious alternatives.
- Keep a water bottle with you and try to finish it before returning home from your job.
- Use a small, easy-to-use journal to make plans for the following day.
Trust us: We know that these tasks may seem overly simplistic, but they will create the foundation for your lifelong positivity. As the weeks and months go by, and as the tasks listed above become easy to perform, you can add to your ‘to-do’ list.
In the same way, a large snowman starts as a tiny snowball, your success must start small and build into impressive effort performed daily. Dedicate a small portion of time and effort each day to change your belief system, and a whole new world of abundance will flow to you.
And before you become discouraged or fearful for the future, you must realize that success mindsets don’t take much time to form. New data reveals that most individuals can change their daily behavior in as little as 66-days! Imagine, 2-months from now, a new version of yourself that is has a permanent flow of positive thinking that dictates their behavior!
Do you know what is meant by personal development? It means to outgrow who you are and do everything you can to break the stereotypes and cultivate your inner power. It’s a choice that not everybody makes, and it sure does separate you from the rest.
