If you are looking at becoming the person who you always wanted to be, then it’s time to step up. For this to happen it is critical you begin to really make a difference and take confident steps in creating the life you truly deserve.
Often, I have seen people carrying unwanted baggage of their past and trying to become a new version. The truth is that it is next to impossible for Life Transformation be it in your professional or personal life, if you are still clinging on to your past. You can refer my previous blog on this topic.
If you are looking at maximizing your potential, then it is within each one of you to get there. Majority of the shifts does happen internally more than in the external world. These 5 action steps are certain to lead you in the right direction.
We Are What Our Thoughts Are
If you are looking at maximizing your potential, then remember that the ball is always in your court. You have to take responsibility on your thought process, the visual images you see in your own head and last but not the least the actions you take on a consistent basis.
Once you begin to take the ownership of these three things which believe me is 100% in your control, then the vision begins to become clearer. Since all the three are interconnected and feeds on each other, it is imperative that you begin in the following order
- Focus on only positive thoughts and outcome.
- Visualize positive outcome with positive results.
- Take positive actions & steps always with a positive outcome in mind.
Once you begin to follow these three simple steps, I will guarantee you that you will begin to follow a pattern where you are setting up your mind for reconditioning which will help you maximize your own potential. This article does give a great insight as to how the mind works through mindfulness.
Work Towards Constant Expansion
When you set yourself for growth, you are subconsciously programming yourself to expand your horizon. The joy in travelling is in the journey and not the destination. I have been travelling extensively for more than couple of decades now and each time the destination was never a priority. It was always the journey and the experiences during the journey.
Every time I am on travel mode, I become open to new experiences and always seek out opportunities to learn new things. I was never born with this attitude. I developed this over the years and when I look back over the years, this one approach has opened my mind to new possibilities more than all the others combined.
So, step out now and be curious and open your mind to expansion. Believe me, this will make your life an adventure and meaningful. For me personally, travelling has worked like magic in helping me creating expansion in my own mind. It might be something else for you.
See what does work for you and begin to do it even it requires you to take some small baby steps from today.
Welcome Challenges With Both Hands
Yes, the words typed are right and I do mean every word of it. Overcoming challenges is bound to make you a better person. If you keep trying and not give up, you are bound to succeed. The people whom you see as failures are the ones who have given up at the first sign of trouble. Look at people who are extremely successful. Their story always does speak about overcoming challenges day in and day out.
Remember that the road to success does always have insurmountable challenges like missed opportunities, negative people and at times colleagues who are less than helpful. If you are looking at maximizing your own potential, then you must master these action steps sooner than later.
In this process, I will guarantee you that you will become a better person and achieve much more than the average person who only has excuses for not being successful in life. Once you begin to recondition your mind in thinking this way, your response to life challenges begins to shift and you often see the same situation through the lenses of possibility.
Take Pride And Joy In What You Do
Each one of us have the potential to live the life we dream about. The only area where a majority do succumb is in planning ahead and in execution. When clients do come to me at times, to find their true calling it is more about knowing their wants than their needs.
Not everybody is lucky to find their dream job, partner or environment to be at their best. However, the truth about people who maximize their potential is they accept the situation and work towards their best. They always find ways and means to work on their goals on a consistent basis and give their best.
Taking pride and joy in what you do is no rocket science. It is just the acceptance of the situation you are in and going after your dreams and living your life to the fullest with a bull-dog-like attitude. This article gives you 5 research based options to be Happy at work and eventually be proud and find joy in what you are doing.
Other’s Success Is Your Success
In the world we are living in now, it is a bit difficult to fathom that something like this works. It does and it has worked for me often over the years. When you share your knowledge and time in ensuring other people become successful what you are doing is clarifying your own thoughts, reinforcing your own belief system and this will eventually make you walk the talk.
So, when I am sharing the reason I did take the leap of faith a decade back in becoming an Entrepreneur with Top Level Executives and large business owners, I am sharing my own journey with the questions which is hitting you right now.
When they relate to someone who has walked the talk and is doing the things they always wanted to do, then it is that much easier to form a connection and develop a good rapport. Over a period when you go out to the world in ensuring other people are successful, they also tend to return the favor by helping you become more successful.
This is the law of the Universe and believe me, it does work even now irrespective of what’s happening around us. For some it works sooner than later but at the end of the day what matters is that it does work.
This blog of mine does give you some additional insights on preparing your mind for peak performance.
