An Alternate Definition Of Success

“Success is a state of mind. If you want success, start thinking of yourself as a success” – Joyce Brothers.

I love this quote. I have realized that, in many ways, this is exactly what success is…it’s simply a state of mind. Think of the things that you are good at. Isn’t it true that one of the main reasons you are good at it is because you think you are? Actually, it’s because you KNOW you are. You KNOW you will succeed.

If you are seeking success in other areas of life, I challenge you to convince yourself of success. How can you do this?

  • Know that the Spirit of all success lives within you. You have a spirit of unlimited power that makes up your very being. Meditate on it, and be that power.
  • Success affirmations. Repeat positive, powerful statements to yourself on a regular basis throughout the day. Statements like, “I am success (see the first bullet); I succeed in all I do; I am confident that I will succeed; or whatever statements will lead you to the success you desire.
  • Visualize success. Take times during the day to pause from the busy pace and envision yourself experiencing and enjoying the success you crave. Then feel the positive emotions you would feel as if you were actually experiencing the success at that moment.

These are some basic ways to gear your mindset towards success. Remember, success is a state of mind, and you will only be as successful as you allow yourself to be.

Why not set your level of success as high as you can? See yourself getting there and reaping the benefits of your great success. Maintain that successful state of mind, and you will know no other way. Enjoy the blessings : )

    This is great! I’d like to add a link back to this from my “Shortcut to Success.” My thought was similar in my tongue-in-cheek “Change the definition of success to Success=Happiness. I just wanted folks to take the pressure and fear of failure out of the equation. You have said it very well here!

      Sharon…thank you for kind words and for adding the link! The success=happiness formula works, and I’ve also learned that happiness=success. And when that fear of failure is removed, nothing is impossible. Thanks for taking it away for us : )

  2. You must believe that you are massively successful from Day One. Begin with the end in mind. And take action! There will be bumps in the road, but if you keep your eyes on the prize then you will reach your goal faster!
