What is Your Relationship with Near Success?
What is your relationship with near success, almost succeeding, but not quite? You’ve achieved something, but it wasn’t ‘it’. Did you fail? Is this the end or just a stepping stone? Your mindset will control which direction you choose. If you’re not getting the results desired, it’s time to think about what you’ve been thinking about. What happens between your ears is what is driving your success. Having a ‘fixed’ or ‘growth’ mindset could be the difference. Remember when the mile hadn’t been run in less than four minutes? In fact, it was a commonly held belief that four minutes was impossible. Why didn’t Roger Bannister believe that? What is the difference? Whether you think you can or you can’t, your mindset is controlling the outcome. Don’t allow ‘near success’ to be your success. Think about what you’re thinking about, and create the mindset to achieve anything you want. This podcast can help you get started.
