Everyone wants to live a successful life. We all have dreams of reaching our goals, overcoming our fears and being the best version of ourselves that we could possibly be. In order to achieve these great things in our lives, we have to acknowledge the fact that the only thing standing between us, and what we want to achieve, is ourselves. More specifically, our minds. When you’re able to take control of your mind, you’re able to take control of your life. A key component in achieving goals and being able to attain success is knowing how to master your mindset.
Master Your Mindset
When you are able to master your mindset, you are able to be master yourself. Self-mastery is essential in achieving greatness in life. We need to be able to have self-control, maintain discipline and keep the promises we make to ourselves if we want to achieve success in every area of our lives. If you want to achieve success and abundance in money, love, career, family, health, etc. You have to be able to master your mind, before you can master your life.
1. How To Master Your Mindset
In learning how to master your mindset, you have to be willing to forget everything you’ve been taught. Forget everything it is that you always thought was the right thing to do. Forget the way you were told to live your life by others, their standards and the beliefs you’ve grown into. Everything you’ve ever known up until now, has been taught to you by someone else. These beliefs and standards are not your own.
The jobs we go towards, the people we date, the way we present ourselves, have all been influenced by those around us. Perhaps, you’ve been conditioned to believe that you we’re bad at math, so becoming an engineer was never an option to you. Maybe you’ve been told that you’re not good enough to attract a partner that doesn’t cheat, so getting cheated on becomes the norm to you. This is what I mean by being conditioned. We are so deeply influenced by the people, places and media around us that if we’re not careful enough with what we allow into our minds, they can influence the rest of our lives. Including the direction and path we take in life.
2. Know Your Subconscious Limiting Beliefs
Your parents, grandparents, teachers, mentors and everyone around you that has ever contributed to the person you’ve become today, all come with their own subconscious limiting beliefs. When learning how to master your mindset, you have to let go of everything you’ve been taught. When you take on other people ideals, standards and beliefs, you limit yourself to their limitations and expectations. This doesn’t mean you have to now drop the morals and values you’ve grown up with. It simply means that you have to break away from what you’ve been unconsciously accustomed to.
You have to understand that if you want a life that’s different from everybody else, you have to be willing to do the things that are different from everybody else. This begins with the way you think and mastering your mind.
3. Unlock Your True Potential
You are capable of so much more than what you have been taught you’re capable of. Just because you’ve been taught to limit yourself to certain options and opportunities in life, based off of someone else’s limiting beliefs, does not mean that you should. In fact, all this time you may have not even been realizing just how much you’ve been limiting yourself based on what you’ve been accustomed to.
In order to change those subconscious limiting beliefs and exceed your potential, take a look back at your childhood. Where were you always taught to limit yourself? What limiting beliefs did your parents project onto you? If your parents were always fighting and separated, as an adult you may find subconsciously see relationships as difficult. This is because on a subconscious level, love was always associated with difficulty for you as a child. Take a look at your job situation and they amount of money you are accustomed to be comfortable. Is this really enough for you? Or have you simply just been taught that this is enough and there’s no way you’re smart enough to make more? These are all subconscious limiting beliefs that you need to get rid of by rewiring your mind.

4. Be Open Minded
If you want to really learn how to master your mindset for success, you have to be willing to be open minded about what it takes to get there. If you’re reading this post, I’m assuming you know you’re capable of way more but for some reason you haven’t gotten there just yet. Clearly, you’re also now hoping that this may be a start to something life changing for you. It very well could be, if you allow it to. Acknowledge the fact that nothing, up until now has got you to where you want to go. So take the lessons and use it to make the change in your life that you want to create.
There is going to be absolutely no outcome from reading this post if you’re going to oppose everything it says, or be closed off to the concepts you’re being taught, whilst still hoping to receive a change. Just like any other advice you may get that could potentially change your life – you have to actually be open to it for it to work!
5. Invest In Things That Will Help You Grow
One of the things I learnt throughout my self growth journey is that if I wanted to grow, I had to be willing to invest in myself. I adopted the mentality that ‘if I give, I will get.’ I knew that if I wanted to see a change in my life, my body, my bank balance, relationships and so forth… I had to be willing to put in the time, money and effort towards creating that change.
If you want real results, you have to be willing to read the books, take the online courses, invest in learning and growing and actually taking action on what you’ve learnt and apply it to your life. You can’t expect to change master your mind without actually getting the right help and proper tools. Many successful people know that in order to stay at the top, they have to invest and reinvest in learning how to keep their position. This means learning from others that are where you want to be or that know better than you and actually investing in what they have to offer.
6. What Are You Willing To Sacrifice To Achieve Your Goals
Many of us set goals without even acknowledging what we may have to invest. This is where we fall short and fail before we can even begin. We think we know what we want, but the important question that we forget to ask ourselves is, what and how much are we willing to sacrifice towards what we want? Are we even willing to sacrifice anything at all?
If you want your dream body, are you willing to sacrifice the pain, time and healthy habits it takes to achieve that? If you want to triple your income in two weeks are you willing to let go of all the distractions, friends and go through some sleepless nights to get it? This is what it means to set realistic goals. You have to ask yourself what you’re actually willing to do in order to achieve the things you want.
Authour of ‘Mindset: The new psychology of success’, Carol Dweck says, “think about your hero. Do you think of this person as someone with extraordinary abilities who achieved with little effort? … Find out the tremendous effort that went into their accomplishment.” Every goal you want to achieve is on the other side of hard work, dedication and consistency!
7. Align With What It Is You’re Trying To Attract
In order to achieve success and attain abundance in every area of your life, you have to get into alignment with what it is you’re trying to attract into your life. If you want to find love, you have to be on the vibration of love. If you want money, you have to be on the vibration of receiving money. Many people forget just how important ‘doing the work’ is in achieving goals. When you align with what it is you want, by reading the books, taking the classes, putting yourself out there, joining like minded people and acting as if what you want already belongs to you, that is how you attract abundance and success into your life.
8. Fixed Mindset vs. Growth Mindset
If you want to learn how to master your mindset, you have to realize that mastering your mindset is an ongoing process. There is never going to be a time where you’ve finally figured it all out. There will always be more to learn, discover and tap into because we are ever-growing and ever changing beings. This is why it is important to keep a growth mindset.
A growth mindset will always ensure that as things change around you, like your circumstances, situations and people, you too will always learn and know how to adapt to your own benefit. When you have a growth mindset, you are always open to learning and adapting which can only bring you more opportunities in life. Whereas a fixed mindset or someone who thinks they know it all, will only ever stay stuck in life. You’ll notice that people with fixed mindsets often can’t get past a certain point. This is because they are simply not open to more than what they already know.
9. Mindset of Lack vs. Abundance Mindset
This goes for a mindset of lack as well. Successful people know that in order to become successful and achieve wealth, you have to adopt a mindset of abundance. A mindset of lack will only keep you stuck in the belief that you cannot have more than what’s available. It keeps you assume that there is not enough. This is not true. We live in an abundant universe where there is no such thing as lack. Therefore, this mindset of lack is pointless.
When you adopt a mindset of abundance you open yourself up to unlimited possibilities and potential. If you constantly choose to believe that there is no one on this planet that could possibly love you. Then you will attract just that. If you believe that you are lovable and have aligned yourself in a way that makes you wholesome. You will attract people who love you. Abundance is all around us if we simply choose to believe it is.
10. Always Work On Personal Development and Self Improvement
Nothing we want in life comes without hard work and dedication. Just like learning how to master your mindset, you have to be willing to always work at it. Always making an effort to personally develop yourself and achieve self improvement will keep you at being the best version of yourself possible. Personal development and self improvement is a life long journey. We have to always be working on ourselves in order to achieve success. The sooner you understand this, the faster you’ll get to where you need to go mentally and physically!
