One of the most important things you can do at the beginning of each morning is to check your mindset. What are your thoughts at the start of everyday? Are you positive or negative? Are you eager or are you apprehensive? Are you excited or worried about what the day will bring to you? What is the first thing you think about when you get out of bed or when you face any situation during your day. Whatever it is will dictate your behavior the rest of the day so it is so important to feed your mind with the right thoughts. Also, your thoughts help develop your character, your personality and how others perceive you which determines if they will want to be with you or associate with you. So start the day right – with the right mindset – the mindset for success!
The people you interact with on a daily basis are the ones who will set your baseline attitude. Are they forward thinking, positive, can do people or are they lazy, see what we can get away with today type of people. If the latter, you need to move on and find new friends. It has been said that your income is the average of the 7 people you hang around with most…income and attitude go hand in hand – think about that for a minute!
Do you have a mindset that says you need to get up, work hard and accomplish something worthwhile today? Do you have a true work ethic that drives you to make the most of everyday or do you have an air of entitlement where you expect people to give you business, buy you lunch, and give you what you want? If the latter, you need to really analyze your thinking and thought processes.
Is your mindset and attitude one of inspiration to others? Do you lift up others or do you put them down? Are you destructive in how you treat, speak, or act towards others? If you are in the second set, why, it does you and them no good to be this way? Think about this, you get further faster by helping, encouraging and motivating others rather than by putting them down. Change your mindset and success will follow.
Do you have a servant mentality ready and willing to help others by referring them, educating them or by just being there for them in their time of need or are you always needy asking for more from others and not giving back? The saying is, the more give the more you get so get busy giving!
Is your attitude one of positivity, creativity and innovation that motivates others to achieve more or are you angry, close minded and negative ready to snap at anyone you encounter? Take the time to think before you act, what are the consequences of your actions and words. Strive to be more open minded and unlock the creativity within you! There is also medication for this…ask Kate.
Are you constantly looking to improve upon how you act or treat others? Are you continuously upgrading your systems and processes to serve others better? Or are you stuck in a rut, doing the same thing over and over like a robot because that’s the way it has always been and will always be? It all starts with your mindset. Write down new things that come to mind and share them with others. Take the first step to continuous improvement and never look back!
Be bold in your statements and make things happen because your thoughts control your destiny. Sit back and analyze how and what you think at the beginning of each day and get your head right each and every morning. You will be surprised at what will happen! Get it? Got it? Good!
