What do you think it takes to be a success? It is luck, hard work, personality or connections? The experts say, it the willingness to make mistakes. Taking risks, trying new things are that actually facilitate success. If you are fearful, worried, holding back, chances are you won’t achieve your dreams or goals. You can spend a great deal of time, money and energy “thinking” about success, or figuring out what you want, however, until you actually make attempts at discovery, practice and invest yourself in an activity or action, you will not really know or make any progress. Everything starts in your mind. Your mindset or way of thinking determines everything about the problems you face in life. A Positive Psychology makes all the difference in the world. Focusing on strengths can keep you going when the going gets tough. Work on developing an “invincibility mindset.” So, whatever happens, you deal with it. This falls into the category of a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you are always waiting for the proverbial “shoe to drop,” it will. Worry sets in, anxiety increases and these feelings can be debilitating. Once worry takes over, your world gets smaller, you quit trying things, risks and adventure disappear and then your changes for success in any endeavor diminish. Live from a position of strength, confidence and invincibility, then worry, fear and “perceived obstacles” disappear. CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) works!
