Your mental attitude about day to day living is an essential aspect for living a successful life. A weak mental attitude will get you nowhere. On the other side a good or better yet a great attitude can give you enough motivation to succeed beyond your dreams.
Perhaps you’re already be thinking you have a mindset for success, and maybe you do. But, you can benefit from improving your attitude and improving your likelihood for the success you desire.
Developing a mindset for success:
1. Find your motivation. Find out what motivates you the most and use it to jumpstart your mental attitude. Feeling motivated give you the initiative necessary to find success. Do whatever it takes within your control to find motivation.
- Create a list of your greatest desires, and ask yourself if you’re on the right path to get what you want.
- If you don’t feel you’re going in the right direction, maybe it’s time for a change. Perhaps there’s a fundamental basis why you lack motivation. Reflect on what this might be, and then decide on how you can mentally recharge. When you on the right path you’ll feel inspired!
2. Get around positive individuals. When you’re connect with positive individuals, you’re more likely to take on positive traits into your own personality and pursue your goals with enthusiasm. When you’re around negative people, you tend to become negative also.
- If you have no choice and must be around negative people do whatever it takes to not take what they say to heart. Their truth doesn’t have to be your truth. Don’t argue keeping peace is sometimes the best solution.
3. Take a leap of faith. The best way to improve your attitude and life is to go after your dreams with passion. Don’t be afraid to take the initiative and push forward toward your goals. People who take action find success. When you take action and begin to see the results of your efforts, your attitude will only improve.
The increased motivation you get from your actions moves you closer to your goals and your ultimate life and attracting more ideal clients.
Once you clear your mind and improve your attitude your life can be anything you want it to be.

Become a client attraction magnet by delegating to multiply your efforts and increase your income. Most small business owners don’t start with a team because they think they have to do it all, there is not enough money to hire anyone. But the reality is you’re losing money if you don’t hire someone to help. What you see very quickly is that you can only do so much.
You may be able to do it all but you will limit the time you’ll be able to spend on the income producing activities of your business. Think about it, if you pay someone $15.00 an hour to help with keeping up your home that could easily be offset by $150.00 per hour or even much more you could be earning by coaching or doing a teleseminar, or networking with a master networker who can give you a ton of leads.
Now be smart and savvy about your help. You may be thinking I can do these things myself. But you need to focus on the things you love (spending quality time with your family and friends)and the things that are going to make you money: (1) client work, product sales or services and (2) marketing to bring in more clients.
So how do you find help? Here’s a few tips:
What Types of Tasks Do They Do?: Again, a willing Virtual Assistant (VA) can be trained to perform tasks in the way you specify, but do look for virtual assistants with experience working with online business owners and who has some understanding of their needs. What Are Their Rates?: Rates vary with virtual assistants. Some may charge per project, while others may charge per project. If you plan on working with a VA on an ongoing basis (as you should), an hourly agreement simplifies the process. Ask if there are any discounts available if you keep your VA on retainer.
Test Them Out Before Agreeing to a Retainer: Ideally, you do want to work with a VA on an ongoing basis, but be sure you are a good fit before doing so. Give him/her a few projects and make sure he/she responds in a timely manner, takes direction well, clarifies any details that need clarifying and complete projects on time.
Be beware of is virtual assistants who do VA work on the side while trying to build another type of business of their own. That is where you run into trouble with consistency, meeting deadlines, etc. You want to find a VA that is committed to providing support to your business, not someone who is trying to pay the bills in the meantime.
Check References: Because your virtual assistant will have access to so much personal and business information, it’s important to check on any references provided. You should also search on Google for any reviews of their service.

I would love to hear your best tip for finding a VA. What do you delegate religiously?
I’ve purchased and read dozens and dozens of books over the past 5 years. From Think and Grow Rich, to The Science of Getting Rich. And they all great books. Telling you great philosophies about life but the one thing I found was missing was the step by step instructions.
The one thing that was clear to me is you create your own reality by your thoughts. It’s not as easy to change your thoughts as you may think. And more importantly knowing how to make the techniques “stick.”
As countless researchers have discovered. The brain is like a computer. In fact, it’s more powerful then any computer that has been built. About two years ago I read a little book by Dr Shad Helmstetter. “What To Say When You talk to Your Self.” Reading the book the first time it seemed too easy to be true. But the truth of the matter is you can reprogram your brain. If Dr Helmstetter is right, then all the words we say to our self makes us who we are and is the secret to changing to who you want to be.
It seems that the human mind is not capable of not thinking at least on a subconscious level. At about 55000 thoughts per day one has to admit we spend an inordinate amount of time thinking. But that is what makes us human.
With all the negative input that we receive from our parents, teachers, peers, television our brain must receive a lot of positive input to overcome the negative. Our parents didn’t know any better. Grandparent believed spare the rod spoil the child. But nothing is as bad as not hearing positive feedback as a child. If all you hear is how awful you are or clumsy you are or bad you are, well guess what ladies and gents, that’s what you will believe. After all you’re being told this by the important people in your life. So we’ve been repeatedly told the wrong things about our life and who we are.
Scientist can prove your brain can retain everything it’s ever seen or heard even if you don’t have conscious access to the information. Every sight, every experience, every uttering every input you have ever had is still there.
These memories create a self fulfilling prophecy. Think back, some of the negative verbal input is still operating in your life today. Negative self talk hangs in the background all day whispering in your ear, “I’m not good enough, . I can’t lose weight, I’m not organized.”
The only process that works to make permanent change is repetition. Whatever the brain hears over and over again it will eventually believe. You are getting brainwashed and the most powerful brainwasher is you. The key to success is repetition. If you listen to enough good input your brain will have no choice but to believe. It will begin to believe those good thoughts and eventually lead to a good life.
