Success Mindset how important is it?
I was contemplating the topic for this post and in doing so looked back through my previous posts. I noticed the topics on mindset and success mindset attracted the most comments. The search back ended at the beginning and my very first post. I began my blog in February 2010 and my first post is titled “My Journey Begins“.
I did not know about key words then, or much else about the online world really, but it felt like this was the place to start. Have a read it is only very short and sets the scene for this post.
Reading my very first post again now made me reflect on how far I have come both in my ability as a blogger and also technically. I was terrified of technology when I started as you will learn when you read my first post. Now I love new technology – so what a turn around! Maybe my success mindset paid off.
I should say here I will never be a “ techo” and there are things that I hate doing like upgrading wordpress 😆 but I love new technology and what it can do for me.
While giggling about my first post and contemplating how much I had learned, I heard the voice of my friend and one of my favorite teacher’s in my head saying “share your wins”. The person I refer to here is Blair Singer who amongst other accomplishments is an author and the founder of Little Voice Mastery teaching people to develop a success mindset.
I first attended a 3 day workshop with Blair about 20 years ago. Since then I have worked with him and seen him work with various teams. He taught me years ago to start team meetings by having team members sharing their wins. Some people do this naturally while others like me often play down their achievements. So over the years of using this ritual I became better at acknowledging my achievements. In reflecting on this yesterday I realized that since I have worked from home I do not take the time to do this as often so I am resolving to make it a daily habit.
I think it is a practice which is fundamental to developing a good mindset; a mindset that supports us in the success we desire. Blair has some great tools on the topic. You can check him out at Blair Singer
Do you know the little voice I am referring to? If you said “what little voice” then that is the one. It is the voice that chats to us all day. By sharing our wins –even to ourselves we are using that voice positively.
I would love to hear what you have to say on this topic of Success Mindset . Do you share your “wins” easily or do you just move onto the next task? Do you downplay your accomplishments? Does your “little voice” support you?
