You can create a winner mindset by making it a habit.
There are specific mindset traits you must adopt.
First you need to understand what these traits are.
Then you must implement specific strategies routinely, until a winner mindset just comes naturally to you.
Let’s look at what those traits are, and then I’ll show you how to master them for yourself.
Personality Traits of a Winner
Your mindset determines your success or failure far more than anything you “do.”
And your mindset is determined by your unique personality traits.
You can be optimistic or pessimistic
Are you optimistic or pessimistic?
Before you quickly assure yourself that you’re an optimist, ask yourself this.
Do you see your online journey as a series of opportunities… or challenges?
You see, you might think you are optimistic because you tell yourself things like “I will be successful.”
But if you dig a bit deeper, you might find that you are really running your online business like a pessimist.
By that, I mean this.
Let’s say, for instance, you moan and groan over all the things you have to learn, or all the time it takes to do everything.
That’s how you would see your business if you are a pessimist.
But if you are truly optimistic, you would not only be willing to learn new things, you’d be excited by it.
You’d see it as an opportunity for growth and improvement, instead of a burden.
This is a key feature of a winner mindset.
Do you focus on success or failure?
There’s no doubt that as you work to grow your business, you will encounter failures.
Does that make you a failure?
Or does it make your business a failed undertaking?
Of course not.
It only means that you have failed to accomplish one tiny task, or that one strategy has failed.
These are only temporary failures.
But if you only focus on those tiny, temporary failures, then failure will become your main personality trait.
And you will adopt a failure mindset.
You will avoid challenges, and get discouraged easily.
And you will expect perpetual failure.
On the other hand, if you see those failures merely as learning experiences, then you will start to build a winner mindset.
You will know, deep inside, that each small failure simply gets you closer to achieving your Big Goal.
Do you maintain your business, or nurture it to growth?
A lot of people get their business to a certain level, and then try to keep it there.
They do the same things every day that got them to that level, and repeat them so they won’t lose ground.
That’s what I call a “maintenance mindset.”
It’s goal is to stay safe and secure.
If you operate from a maintenance mindset, then you are afraid to expand your business to a higher level.
You may be afraid that you are risking whatever you’ve achieved so far.
Or you may simply have reached a comfortable spot, and you don’t want to challenge yourself to continue growing.
When you adopt a winner mindset, though, you will do everything in your power to expand your business.
That means, you will continually, relentlessly, nurture it so that it can grow to new heights.
You will never be “comfortable” where you are.
That’s because you know that if you’re not operating for expansion, you are actually propelling your business into contraction.
Winner Mindset personality improvement
Considering the personality traits of a winner, outlined above, you will aspire to attain those traits when you adopt a winner mindset.
You may not have those traits now.
And you may never have had them.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t undergo personality improvements to make them part of your persona.
Developing your winner mindset will require letting go of those aspects of your personality that have been holding you back, getting you stuck, and leading you down the path to failure.
Replace things like
- procrastination with consistent implementation of daily tasks
- settling for mediocre results with insistence on achieving mastery
- seeking comfort with relishing challenges for growth
- holding onto unreasonable expectations with sticking to a process without regard to results
- being easily discouraged with resilience
- getting off track with steady, unwavering focus on your goals
- always looking for something new, better or easier with a drive to master the task at hand
- afraid to learn new things with high motivation
- lack of confidence with self-assurance
- slow to get started with a bounce in your step
- fear of failure with thirst for overcoming obstacles
You see, you are not stuck with your current personality traits forever.
You can become growth-minded, achievement-oriented and resilient.
It’s called “self-improvement.”
Maybe you weren’t born a winner, but you certainly can train yourself to become one.
You can learn what it takes for you to master the art of high-level achievement.
And you can start turning setbacks into opportunities for growth.
Start loving the challenge of learning new things.
Quickly rebound anytime something sets you back.
Operate with relentless motivation and high octane productivity.
Maybe you can’t be what you’re not.
But you can maximize your potential, exude confidence, and always strive to achieve a peak performance.
It’s time to break through whatever it is that is holding you back.
Here’s how to do it.
Unleash your potential
We all have potential.
Potential to achieve success, happiness and meaning in our lives.
When you accept that, you are laying the foundation for your winner mindset.
But it’s not enough to believe it.
You have to start seeing it, too.
The way to develop a winner mindset, is to see yourself being a winner.
Set attainable goals
Work on one Big Goal.
If you’re pursuing too many end-goals, you’ll only get confused and overwhelmed.
And guess what that does to your winner mindset.
It pretty much deflates it.
Spreading your efforts too thin will train you to believe you just can’t succeed.
You’ll convince the little voice in your head that you’re a loser, not a winner.
That’s because you’re playing a losing game.
Trying to win at too many things is the perfect recipe for losing at everything.
Stop trying to achieve 5 Big Goals simultaneously.
It’s not attainable.
Choose, instead, just one Big Goal.
Make it a goal that is attainable.
Then, go after it with all you’ve got!
Give yourself achievable daily tasks
It’s important to note that going after your Big Goal is a choice.
You, and only you, must decide to take action.
When you honor that decision each day, you train yourself to expect daily achievements.
So break down your Big Goal into small, daily tasks.
Make sure these tasks will actually pave the way to achieving your Big Goal.
As you complete your daily tasks one at a time, you get to check them off… completed!
And that’s a really big deal.
When you complete a task, your brain is being transformed into adopting a winner mindset.
You don’t have to think about it.
Nor do you have to meditate on it.
It just happens.
Each success you have replaces a failure mindset with a winner mindset.
And your brain doesn’t quantify whether it’s a big success or a tiny one.
Success is simply success.
Create a win
Don’t believe me?
If you’re having the kind of day where everything seems to be going wrong, try accomplishing something little, even relatively insignificant.
Re-arrange the kitchen cabinet.
Clean out a box of stuff from your closet.
You will feel a sense of accomplishment, and your entire outlook will improve.
That’s because you won at something.
How to reshape your mindset
Here’s the thing.
You need to have small wins every day.
Many small wins.
Multiple times a day.
The more often your brain processes a win, the stronger and faster you adopt a winner mindset.
Become a serial winner.
Two things will then happen.
Each day you will get closer to achieving your Big Goal.
Step by step, one little task after another.
You will start seeing yourself as a winner.
Even setbacks will seem trivial because you get so used to winning, that a setback can easily be written off as a learning opportunity.
Because you have adopted a winner mindset.
When you experience failure, you will simply put it on your list to achieve later.
Or you will figure out a better way to make it happen.
You will have developed resilience.
You know you haven’t failed, you just have to figure out why you couldn’t do it today, and plan how you will do it tomorrow.
However you slice it, you are going to achieve it!
Create a winner mindset
Become a serial winner.
Maybe you don’t really believe you can write an ebook in 60 days.
But you can make that your Big Goal, can’t you?
And you can break that down into weekly goals, and daily goals.
Now, are you able to make an outline of your ebook on Monday?
Can you research your first topic on Tuesday, just to see what other people are saying about it?
And can you write a paragraph on your first topic Wednesday?
Just continue on in that manner.
Have multiple tiny wins every day.
Your self-esteem will get a big boost.
And slowly, but steadily, you will be marching forward, ready to conquer that Big Goal that you never thought you could.
Meanwhile, your subconscious mind will be watching all these accomplishments.
Day after day, multiple times a day, it will notice that you are piling up wins.
It’s beginning to see that you really are a winner, after all.
Yes, you have turned the corner.
You have unleashed your potential.
And yes, you have started to create a winner mindset.
