You’ve probably heard the saying, “it’s all in how you think about a situation.” That mindset plays such an important role in success. Here are a few great examples of the power of the right mindset:
“We take hamburgers more seriously than anyone else.” – Ray Kroc, founder of McDonald’s
“Champions take responsibility. When the ball is coming over the net, you can be sure I want the ball.” – Billie Jean King
“You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
Yes, the caliber of information that we daily and consistently and repeatedly put into our brain is what actually programs our mind where to FOCUS.
How can we do this?
1) Wake up earlier. It’s really not as bad as you think. Allow yourself some quiet time to read something that will inspire you.
2) Script your day as if it has already happened. Yes, I know sometimes distractions occur but you will certainly accomplish more that day if it is well planned. Walt Disney was famous for this. He called it a script that your mind can follow. The body and your daily actions follow your mind.
3) Listen to morning motivational music or life enriching CDs on your drive to work.
Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, did one thing every morning to keep him on track and focused. In his commencement address at Stanford University, he revealed that he looked in the mirror every single morning and he asked himself this very important question.
” If I died tonight, will I be glad that I did what I am planning to do today?”
