8 Qualities Of The Success Mindsets Of The Most Successful In Business
Ever wondered why some people are more successful in business than others?
Have you even wondered why some people are mega successful – the likes of Richard Branson, Peter Jones and Deborah Meaden?
The strategies that they use in their businesses are, without doubt, a big reason for their success but fundamentally, they each possess a SUCCESS MINDSET that gives them the power to succeed.
The Harvard Business School has continually reported over many years that their most successful students were the ones with the strongest and most positive attitude and mindset and not the most able.
Here, I present EIGHT QUALITIES of their SUCCESS MINDSET.
1. Each Is An Eternal Optimist
The most successful in business are all eternal optimists and they have great belief and confidence in their ability to succeed and to create good outcomes for everything they do.
Almost certainly, each would not have started with strong optimism; their confidence would have grown as they would have achieved more good outcomes on their business journey.
2. Each Is Resilient
Things don’t always turn out right, though, and many would have experienced set-backs and failure on their success journey. But each would have learned from the experience and each would have bounced back, stronger.
Importantly each would accept that failure is part of the success process.
3. Each Is Open Minded
Everyone is very open minded, particularly to new ideas and new ways of doing things. Each accepts that if they and their businesses are to progress, they must keep developing and adapting.
They know that if they are resistant to change, they will get left behind.
4. Each Is Mega Positive
Each one knows that if they are to be creative and to be able to develop, they need to be surrounded by positivity and to live and work in a positive ‘bubble’.
Many would have experienced negativity, at low times of their lives, and each would know its detrimental effects. Most would have learned how to dispel negativity from their minds and their lives and how to permanently work to create positivity.
5. Each is Highly Determined & Persistent
Because their desire for success and their unwavering expectation and optimism for their success is so massive, this creates a huge determination and drive in the relentless pursuit of their ambitions.
Their strong resilience and their ability to bounce back makes them highly persistent, with a ‘never give up’ attitude.
6. Each Is Highly Disciplined
Their determination and persistence creates strong discipline.
Being disciplined means things are done when they should be done. Even the most passionate in business will have parts that they dislike about their businesses but the most successful know that everything must be actioned in the right way and at the right time, if they are to keep progressing.
They know that procrastination and delay will slow their journey, so nothing is ‘put off’ or delayed.
7. Each Is Resourceful
Each one learns to be resourceful and each one learns to make the best of what is available to them to progress. Everyone would have struggled, particularly in the early days of their business journey, but each would have worked hard to develop their skills and abilities and each would have created good progress in spite of limited money, skills, abilities and other resources.
8. Each Is Happy
Doing what they love to does primarily create their happiness and contentment. The fruits of their labours would allow them a lifestyle to pursue interests outside their business life.
But each knows that ‘money’, itself, has not created their happiness - they would consciously have worked to create their happiness before the ‘money’ arrived. The money merely would have enhanced their previously happy state.
Being happy would have also strengthened their positivity and optimism and further strengthened their SUCCESS MINDSET.
