4 Powerful ways to shift your mind for success
Success is subjective, and no one can define it with certain words or principles.
For example, I see success when I get full grades, while some people consider themselves successful when they have a lot of money in their bank account.
Whatever the goal is, there is one common thing that we all want to achieve, which is our final goal to succeed in life.
“Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”
— WINSTON CHURCHILL

2. Change your negative thoughts into positive thoughts
Negative self-talk is a constant battle most of us go through.
But this is what our mind is designed for, to protect us from uncertainties.
Therefore, we have to change our way of thinking and begin positive because there are more beautiful things in life that we have to enjoy!
3 ways to stop negative thoughts
One way is to watch yourself talk when you feel that you are indulged in negative thoughts and scenarios; stop and start positive thinking for a different thing that you like.
The second way is to read, watch or listen to anything inspirational that is related to your goals.
This will not only boost your mood but also motivates your way of thinking.
Finally, As Tony Robbins said, “Who you spend time with is who you become.”
Therefore, evaluate your inner and social circle and ask yourself if they bring positive energy and vibe into your life or not because they directly affect your behaviors and mental health!
Then decide how you can limit and control who you interact with.
3. Embrace your failures
“The difference between ordinary people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.”
― John C. Maxwell
You need to fail in order to succeed in anything.
Failure is inevitable to learn and grow through your journey.
I used to be a quitter sometimes before I even start anything! How destructive I was talking to myself!
But I learned this the hard way through all challenges and trauma that I faced throughout the years.
I decided to read , learn, improve, and work on my weakest areas, and failure was a big one.
Now, I totally embrace it to the extent that I get excited to fail in anything that I am working on
But for real, failure pushes me to analyze, think and take action to overcome whatever obstacle I face.
Without the stops of failure, I will not have the opportunity to know better.
4. Stop victimizing your self and take full ownership of your actions
Taking responsibility for your actions is the real deal that will impact all aspects of your life.
If you are throwing your problems on others, you will not win.
On the contrary, you will lose control of your life, and no one will care to rescue
I know this is a harsh fact, but that doesn’t matter when you become your life creator.
Once you understand that everything happens and will happen to you, whether it is on or out of your hands is based on how you react!
Reacting to what you face in your journey will determine
