The 4 Step Guide to the road of excellence

1. Build A Mindset that Impacts You Positively.

Mindset is all about winning and losing in life. What you think is what you end up becoming. 

Defining Mindset: Mindset is a person’s thoughts that they automatically generate. Mindset is automatic because it is already built and stored in the mind. Your mindset can be positive or negative based on how you have been raised and what occurred with you. The thoughts that you develop can drive your life however way it wants.

“You are in charge of what you believe.”

Every mindset is deeply rooted in a person’s belief system. You might think that you can escape difficult circumstances in your life with a positive attitude, but the reality can be different.

When life pokes you, what’s inside you comes out.

Life is only challenging or big when storms arrive, which shake us from inside and out.

When such calamity comes, we have a choice. You can allow yourself to surrender to these storms or breakthroughs and empower yourself to grow and succeed.

There’s a reason why people suggest having a “productive mindset”, “growth mindset,” or “successful mindset.” It actually works. 

Changing Your Mindset

Forget about a negative or fixed mindset, if you don’t have a growth mindset, success won’t touch you. Changing your mindset and building a positive is a crucial step and long journey that requires complete concentration and a shift in perspective. Here are some practice ways to improve your mindset.

I. Understand the Present State of Mind

You should evaluate the mindset that’s useful in your career or growth and those that aren’t the best to have.

You might already have some great mindset models; now you need to nurture them into becoming a reality. 

Be honest with yourself. Access the mindset that isn’t helping you by checking the response on a particulate behavior or action.

The patterns can help you identify that bad mindset you might accidentally collect and change them into better ones.

II. Build a Growth Mindset

The most important part about any change is believing you are capable of change. Building a growth mindset is one of the biggest moves to mindset mastery.

Believe in yourself and improve upon your thoughts and perspective in life and towards your work and challenges you take on.

It will help you eliminate self-destructive thoughts. 

III. Make a Ritual

Building a ritual will help you create the right mindset.

You can build powerful habits that will bring you closer to positive energy and thoughts in the world rather than attract the abundance of negativity present in every corner.

You can medicate since it’s the most effective way to reset. Or go to the gym, take long walks, indulge in creative artwork. Experiment your way into building the desired mindset.

IV. Be Kind and Patience with Yourself

As much as the world needs kindness, you do too. Don’t aspire to be a perfectionist when it comes to mindset. Not every day will be the best day; sometimes you have to live through the worst days of setbacks.

The key here is to be continuous and consistent with your effort over time. When you find yourself departing away from your mindset, don’t quit it there.

Forgive yourself and begin again to help yourself re-align.

Have Motivation in Anything You Do

2. Have 10x Motivation For Creating an Impact 

“Push yourself because no one else is going to do it for you.”

It’s easy to have a goal and the right mindset to achieve all that, but staying motivated to make it a reality, well, that’s a different story.

Motivation is the best predictor of career success than your intelligence, ability, or salary. 

It is the sole reason why every successful person has managed to accomplish nearly anything. People with zero experience and skill come with more incredible determination, drive and willpower to get things done.

And they do, better than the veterans. Motivation is the biggest determiner of long-term success.

Motivation isn’t something innate or god-given trait. You have to build motivation yourself. 

Here’s how you can successfully become self-motivated:

I. Set Small and Challenging Goals

The best thing about motivation is that it doesn’t require a great amount of time. You can become motivated in a second.

Your intention and behaviors can instantly set you on the right path. 

However, people try to dig motivation amidst huge goals, piled-up work that’s unattainable. This eventually leads to burnout and loss of willpower.

People also focus on the result, and the result itself is motivating to them, not the route that it takes to get there. For some, it takes months, years and even decades. 

Instead, set goals that are specific and small.

According to the American Psychological Association, people who set goals that are both specific and challenging are 90% more likely to achieve what they’ve set their mind to. 

Setting goals that are extensive, long and broad can’t sustain motivation in the long run. Motivate yourself of smaller goals and achievement. 

Motivate yourself for today or tomorrow. Don’t create unrealistic goals that will require years to achieve. When you aim high, you have to keep smaller achievements in mind. 

Don’t work for the deadline, enjoy the process. 

When you celebrate each goal, your body releases dopamine which trains your brain to crave more achievement for the future. 

The next big thing is, set challenges.

There must be challenges to make your win special and joyful. Setting challenging goals makes work interesting and worth competing.

II. Celebrate Little Wins

You have a big career plan, like every person in the world. And you’ll truly celebrate when you finally achieve the final goal that you’ve been dreaming and working for years. 

Isn’t this how you think? Well, let me stop you right there. 

As much as big goals are great, they aren’t accomplished overnight, so stop pretending like it does. 

What about the rest of the time that you’ve been working, why not celebrate those hours. Instead of waiting to reward yourself at the finish line, give yourself a pat in the back when you manage to accomplish the smaller levels that are leading you to success.

“This is a journey — a hard one — and the only way to make it sustainable and bearable is if you actually acknowledge your small successes along the way.”

We know, big achievements call for bigger impact or change in life. But smaller ones lead you to it.

By celebrating those tiny wins, you’ll find a much-needed daily dose of motivation.

III. Give Yourself a Real Reward

Cupcake, Brownie or Sushi?

When did you reward yourself for doing such a great job last time? Just because you are all grown up, doesn’t make you immune to happiness and positivity in life. 

The next time you meet a goal or milestone, treat yourself to something you have been eyeing or haven’t had the guts to do for yourself without an excuse.

Studies have shown the wonders of rewards on kids, employees, students, and adults. You feel valued, loved and prioritized.

IV. Take Responsibility

Are you ready to be in charge of new ideas, challenges, triumphs, and even failures? Being accountable isn’t just a parent thing, but an adult thing.

Setting goals and staying motivated also requires you to be responsible. When you set a specific goal, update them to a friend or answer about a delay to your coach. 

Mentors and coaches help you with accountability; they suggest their viewpoints or next steps if the goals aren’t met within a certain span of time. 

Among the most important personal choices you can make is to accept complete responsibility for everything you are and everything you will ever be.

This is the great turning point in life. The acceptance of personal responsibility is what separates the superior person from the average person. 

Personal responsibility is the preeminent trait of leadership and the wellspring of high performance in every person in every situation.

Accepting complete responsibility for your life means that you refuse to make excuses or blame others for anything in your life that you’re not happy about.

You refuse, from this moment forward, to criticize others for any reason. You refuse to complain about your situation or about what has happened in the past.

You eliminate all your if-only and what-ifs and focus instead on what you really want and where you are going.

Time Management is the Key

3. Put 3x Times Into Anything You Do

Working for more hours isn’t just the solution but managing and putting time into the right work makes the biggest difference. If you start a little earlier and stay a little later, you will be more productive.

By creating your day earlier than the average person, you beat the traffic into work. By staying a little later, you leave after the traffic. By doing both, you can add two or three hours to your productive working day without really affecting your lifestyle.

These extra hours are all you need to become one of the most productive and highest-paid people in your field. Here’s how to control your time:

I. Recognise the few priority tasks that require more of your time. Think your work through carefully.

You have to prioritise the work that is more beneficial than the rest so that you can make the biggest contribution in it.

Picking the best fruits will only sharpen your ability and make you an expert.

II. Recognise the perfect routine task and activities that takes much of your time but contributes very little or nothing to your long-term goals.

Start today to delegate those work to others or eliminate them from your routine at once. Remove any activity that’s not adding value to your success.

Reduce the amount of time you spend in low-volume, time-consuming activities.

Stay adamant on discontinuing activities are of less importance. It’s not just important to focus on beneficial tasks but also getting rid of every other thing that’s stopping you from attaining greater success in life. This little distraction takes no time into becoming a habit that steals away your productivity.

III. Managing time for work is great. What about some time for entertainment and leisure? That’s vital, too.

Decide today to take off at least one full day each week to spend some time exclusively on your personal pursuits.

During these times, don’t do anything related to work. Don’t read the books, make calls or catch up on your correspondence or anything related to work.

Recharge your brain and rejuvenate during this holiday period so that you enjoy work and life.

Life shouldn’t be all about work, and each day in the week, you’ll value it.

IV. Pay close attention to the things you do. Be very conscious and aware of the things you do. Think about the work you take on.

Whatever task you take as a priority, concentrate and work on them single-mindedly.

Putting thought behind every activity you do will help you develop a habit within you to create a great level of productivity and performance. You will be amazed at the improvements that take place in every part of your life, and they will take place far faster than you can imagine. 

Planning your time and work you do in those hours is what every influential person follows. Every powerful person plans their day in detail, in advance.

So make every minute of your day COUNT.

It’s the only way where you accomplish more than the average person and you feel better about yourself.

Managing time ultimately leads to managing life more carefully.

You start to place higher value on every minute and every hour. Not only time, you also start to value yourself.

Take Time to Review, Reflect and Analyze Your Performance

4. Pause, Review and Reflect

Once you are done putting your efforts in, don’t forget to take time to pause and reflect on the work you’ve done.

There are five questions you must ask yourself regularly if you want to perform at your very best: 

  1. What are you trying to do? 

Define the ideal goal or outcome you are striving for before you begin. If you are working with others, make sure everybody is crystal clear about the desired result before anyone starts work.

2. How are you trying to do it? 

Make sure that this is the best way. Ask whether there could be another way. Always remain open to the possibility that you could be wrong. Think through and analyze your approach to be sure that it is the very best way to approach your goal or objective. 

Self feedback will set a lot of things in the correct order.
