Learn how to shift your mindset and reach your peak state
By: Tony Robbins with thoughts added by John Tsoulos
What would you do if you knew you could achieve success just by learning how to change your mindset? As the president of an electric motor company, Josh was doing pretty well at balancing his work responsibilities with his personal life. But he knew there was more out there for him.
Sound familiar? Whether you’ve reached a plateau, are having trouble getting inspired to achieve your goals or feel stuck in a cycle of negativity, learning ways to change your mindset can completely transform your career, relationships and your entire life.
What is Mindset?
Your mindset is your set of beliefs, values and attitudes about yourself and the world around you. These beliefs shape how you experience the world: Is life happening to you or is it happening for you? Do you feel your life is within your control or destined to be a certain way? Do you believe in personal growth or are you content to stay in your comfort zone?
You’ve probably heard someone be accused of being stuck in their ways or having an old-fashioned set of beliefs. Perhaps you have been told you’re a pessimist – or an optimist. These are all different types of mindsets that are formed based on our past experiences and that can be changed.
Can You Shift Your Mindset?
Yes, you can absolutely shift your mindset. In fact, the ability to change their mindset is something every successful person has in common that has helped them get where they are today. There are many ways you can shift your mindset to improve the quality of your life and propel yourself to success, including:
Emotional Weakness to Emotional Control
Successful people don’t let negative experiences and events beyond their control affect their state of mind. They realize that our beliefs create our world, but we are in control of our beliefs. They are in charge of their emotions, mindset and lives.
Negative Thinking to Positive Thinking
Positive thinking is associated with greater happiness, decreased anxiety and improved physical health – all of which can help you on the journey to achieve your goals. One study even found that a positive outlook leads to success. The theory is that positive people are more likeable, which helps them build rapport, network and get ahead in life.
Fixed Mindset to Growth Mindset
People with fixed mindsets believe that they can’t improve or grow – that they are stuck the way they are. With a growth mindset, you believe that when you put in work, you’ll be rewarded. You know that you can develop new skills, improve your relationships and grow as a person. You look at challenges as opportunities, not obstacles.
Expectations to Appreciation
So much frustration and disappointment in life can be avoided if we trade our expectations for appreciation. When you appreciate abundance instead of always expecting more – from the universe, others and yourself – you’re able to be present in your life and enjoy it to the fullest.
Big Changes to Small Adjustments
To shift your mindset, stop looking at life as an all-or-nothing situation. Oftentimes changing your mindset happens in small increments. Tony teaches the two-millimeter rule: Sometimes all it takes to change your mindset forever is the smallest, two-millimeter shift in the way you see the world.
5 Ways to Change Your Mindset
The key is that you push yourself to reach the next level by first addressing the thing you are struggling with in your professional and personal life, and by challenging yourself to change your mindset toward the future. To change your mindset and achieve similar results, start with these five steps.
1.Challenge Your Limiting Beliefs
Nearly everyone holds on to limiting beliefs that prevent them from realizing their dreams. Those who are able to challenge and overcome them go on to achieve their goals. Those who don’t continue to live in negative patterns – and often don’t even realize it.
Limiting beliefs are the stories we tell ourselves about who we really are: shy, overweight, undeserving of love or success. They aren’t true, and they can be replaced with empowering beliefs. Most times people do not face opportunities head on, instead they turn back to familiar, limiting patterns because they were more comfortable.
By rebuilding a positive set of habits, you will be able to reach new levels of success at work and in your personal life.
2.Face Your Fears
Must address your belief systems. People look at stuff from a place of fear. When they are taught how to identify that, it’s amazing how their perception changes.”
People let their professional and personal life pass them by because they are afraid of failure. Fear is a destructive emotion, but you do not have to accept it. Overcoming your fears is a major step toward how to change your mindset for success.
3.Shift Your Perspective
Learning how to change your mindset can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Sometimes all it takes to change your mindset forever is the smallest, two millimeter shift in the way you see the world. One choice that we can easily make is the meaning that we give to our experiences. Tony says, “Nothing in life has any meaning except the meaning I give it.” Do we see challenges as obstacles – or as opportunities?
4.Change Your Self-Talk
When you’re thinking about how to change your mindset, do you find yourself mired in negative thoughts? If you do, focus on your language to change your mindset. Change your self-talk starting with how you begin your day. If you plant positive language in your head at the beginning of the day, you’ll feel more energetic. You might find it effective to make a mantra for yourself, depending on how you’re feeling.
Change your mantra as often as you need to in order to maximize your own power. In addition, remember that it’s okay to need to correct your course many times during the day. To keep your positivity flowing, surround yourself with people whose mindsets reflect where you want to be. And remember, setbacks are normal. Bounce back from setbacks by reminding yourself why you want to change.
Do you want to know how to change your mindset? Do you crave growth and joy in your life, but are unsure of where to start?
