Are you striving for success with your business but can’t seem to get there? If you are not realizing your dreams, it is most likely due to lacking a mindset for success.
If you want to reach your goals, you must work on mindset. That is what sets super successful people apart from those who are not.
Have you ever felt like you just couldn’t accomplish something so you just gave up?
If yes, you weren’t working on developing a mindset for success. Regardless of what goals you want to accomplish, successful habits are a must and it all starts with your mind.
Have you ever heard the saying, “Feed your mind?” Everything you do in life is determined by the way you think and then take action (or not.)
A success mindset is what gets me out for my runs during the week and keeps pushing me forward in my business. It is what will help you step out of your comfort zone to accomplish great things in your life.

Your Mindset for Success Starts with You
You are the only person that can create a mindset for success. Here are 4 tips to get you going.
Create Successful Habits
Thankfully it only takes 21 days to create a habit! It all starts with small changes in your daily routine. Create of list of what needs to be done to get to your goal. Every day, take a small step toward your goals. If you have tasks that you dread, do those first. Creating successful habits it your first step.
Feed your mind with personal development. You can read, listen to audio or watch a video that contributes in some way to developing a mindset for success. Spend at least 20 minutes a day. I love to keep audio CDs in the car for drive-time University.
Here are some of my favorite success books.
- The Success Principles by Jack Canfield
- Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers
- The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy
- Start with Why by Simon Sinek
Create a Vision for Your Life
Stop looking backwards in life. Instead, look to your future and be open to the possibilities in life. My Mom always told me that I could do anything I set my mind to. She was right! And you can do! Look at all the possible ways you can live your life. What does your perfect day look like? Your vision will keep you moving forward during the tough times.
Learning is the most important factor to developing your mindset for success. Here’s what I mean. If you move forward towards your goal and fail, do you give up? No way! Keep moving forward and learn from the failure. That is what will get you to your ultimate goal.
Truly successful people realize their dreams because they are constantly working on creating a mindset for success.

It is true that we must have the right mindset in order too succeed. I read a personal development blog day before yesterday and it talked about the same things. It also talked about how important meditation is and to do it daily.
I need to work on myself every day to have the right mindset. and that means getting into personal development and give our minds the food it needs.
You have an awesome week ahead,
Chuck Holmes says
For years I was my own worst enemy and I would sabotage myself from success. It took me lots of personal development to feel worthy and deserving of success. This mindset is very normal in a lot of my team members as well. I have to coach them and teach them how to “think” like a successful program. It’s as if we have all been programmed to feel badly about ourselves, to feel unworthy, and to think we don’t deserve great things in life.
The truth is, we can be our own greatest asset or our own worst enemy. What we think determines what we do, what we do determines our habits, and our habits determine where we will end up in life.
Just my two cents. Great, great post Lisa.

I just love personal development of any kind. Anything that develops a more positive inner self and feeds a mindset that is full of self belief is ok with me.
Thanks for sharing Lisa.
Carol Makowski says
Absolutely — mindset is the foundation of success. Great tips you put out in this post. I haven’t ready The Compound Effect, but love Darren Hardy’s writings. Important to fill lour minds with positivity in a world that often feeds us just the opposite. And persistence is one of the most important factors in success, to my way of thinking. Keep going in spite of the set backs and road bumps. Thanks for the help Lisa.
Lisa J says
Thanks for your comment Carol! I appreciate you taking the time to share your insights.
If you love Darren Hardy’s writings, you’ll love the Compound Effect for sure!
You are so right… we find negativity everywhere. Even social media like Facebook is full of negative stuff in the newsfeed. I believe that we must continue to stay positive no matter what, and keep moving forward.
Thanks again for the visit. Hope to see you here again soon.

Creating successful habits is the one most people have the hardest time with. It’s called life and it’s full of reasons (excuses). This has been one area that I’ve had to accomplish at an early age… love the book suggestions especially Darren Hardy….and one last thing… my Dad use to tell us that the day you stop learning there no reason to be here anymore…. he was working on computers in his 90’s before he passed… great stuff Lisa… thanks for sharing
Lisa J says
Thanks for the wonderful insights Ron! Your Dad was very wise and I love his philosophy on life!
Learning is the key to so many things, success included. You are so blessed to have had your Dad.
Excuses are so easy and most people turn to excuses first, before even trying to move forward. In fact, some spend more time on the excuses than it would take to do the required task!
Thanks for the visit.
