One thing that’s understood but not practiced is this idea of focus and attention. You attract what you focus on, and you should be focusing on what you want.
Things don’t often work out as planned, and that tends to draw our focus. We focus on what we don’t have instead of focusing on what we want — it creates a bad attitude. There will always be things you don’t have or that don’t work out, but an optimized mindset understands those are all lessons and opportunities.
Your focus should be on where you’re going and what you have. As you focus on what you do have, it creates an attitude of gratitude, attracting more good things into your life. It also keeps your mind sharp because gratitude helps you stay energized.
One mindset shift that helps optimization is focusing on what you have instead of what you don’t have. The goal is to look forward and keep taking steps towards your goals.
Happiness comes when we create freedom in our life. Growth means accomplishment and making progress towards that life of freedom. Shift your mindset to live a happy life, optimize yourself, and accomplish every one of your goals.
It’s a great time to push towards your vision of success and accomplishment. It starts with consistency and building healthy habits. Make these for mindset shifts and do the work to become the best version of yourself. Make it happen.
When we think of change, we’re thinking about the big picture and what it will be like once we get there. The big picture and accomplishment come from the daily choices that you make. Your choices build your habits, and that affects how successful you’ll become.
"The mind is everything. What you think, you become."
Something interesting happens when we accomplish our goals and experience the benefits of that accomplishment. The fear of success has kept more than a few people from going after their dream life. One other limiting belief is not feeling worthy of that dream life.
Stop reacting to life and start responding to it.
If you want to really change, you need to start reframing your mindset. You’re not in control of everything that happens to you, but you are in control of how you respond to what happens to you.
We all only live about 4000 weeks.
This deadline of living on Planet Earth can make us do stuff quickly, trying to be as productive as possible in the short time we have.
This phenomenon of speeding up, called the productivity trap leads us to unhappiness and eventual disappointment. Counterintuitively, we need to slow down to make the most out of life.
I’m a strong believer in the fact that success and happiness are all about mindset. Your mindset and belief system affect everything in your life, from what you think and feel to how you act and react to the world around you.
