This 7 part series on the basic principles of achievement, lets you know about the 7 most fundamental mindsets that you MUST have in order to achieve and have anything you want.
First and foremost, you need to take 100% for your life!
Now, this may not be exactly an easy thing to do. This includes your relationships, your financial status, your health, feelings etc. Basically, to be successful, you need to be able to take responsibility of everything that is going on in your life. Of course, it’s easier to simply put the blame on other people or events. Maybe you would think ‘This is simply not my fault!’ However, by making yourself seem like a victim, immediately takes away the control you have over any situation, and deprives you of any chance to take back and learn from any lesson.
One thing that have stuck with me over the years is this question. ‘Are you better at creating reasons, or creating results?‘
Indeed, humans tend to create thousands of reasons for doing, or not doing, something that we are supposed to do. We choose to go to the gym at another time because ‘I am too busy’, or perhaps we choose to study later because ‘The weather makes me too sleepy!’. One fundamental thing that successful people all over the world have in their minds is that they do not let something else take responsibility for their actions. Sure, we cannot control anything that happens to us. However, we can control our responses and actions in reaction towards it. To put it across as a scientific term, consider this,
E (Event) + R (Response) = O (Outcome)
As quoted by Jack Canfield, this is what he says: ‘If you are going to be a winner, you have to acknowledge the truth, it is you who took the actions, thought the thoughts, created the feelings, and made the choices that got you to where you now are. It was you!‘
You are the one who ate the junk food.
You are the one who bought it.
You are the one who didn’t find the best way to study more efficiently.
You are the one who didn’t say no!
You are the one who chose not to exercise.
Logic is not as efficient as taking action. If you are willing to, perhaps for the next 7 days, think over your actions, current situation, thoughts, feelings, and consider how you can control the outcome instead. YOU have the power to decide your own fate! Don’t let what others say and believe in (The government, the lousy teachers, your friends, etc), that sometimes it just ‘cannot be helped’. You will feel like you will feel a sense of empowerment that you have never felt before!
