How Your Mental Attitude Affects Your Success

You hear it all the time in sports: It’s not how you start, but how you finish that counts. While there are many factors that affect your performance, from the strength of your training and nutrition program to the temperature on race day, an important one is often overlooked. It’s not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game. Yes, that old adage applies to everything, not just sports—and it’s true!

The Power of Positivity
It’s not just a cliché, positivity really does have an impact on your success. What you think about and what you believe in becomes your reality, so when you put your focus on the things that are going well instead of the ones that are not, you’ll notice an improvement in all areas of life. One study even found that people who have a positive attitude live longer and suffer less from illness than those with a negative mentality.

The Law of Attraction
It is a law that like attracts like. What you put out into the world is what you get back. This law can be applied to anything in your life, from your career to your relationships. If you have a positive mental attitude and believe in yourself, the universe will provide opportunities for success. The opposite is also true: if you are negative or lack confidence, the universe will provide obstacles for failure.

The Power of Visualization
Visualization is a powerful tool for setting and accomplishing goals. Visualizing your goal in the present tense as if you already had it can help you feel like the success is already yours. In addition, the process of visualizing the steps to accomplish your goal can help you figure out what needs to be done and how to take those first important steps. Finally, visualization can also help you prepare for potential challenges that may arise on your journey to success by giving you a sense of comfort and assurance. So next time you need motivation or inspiration, try visualizing what could be instead of dwelling on what currently is!

The Power of Goal Setting
People who set goals generally have a better chance of success. Goals can be set in any area, not just in business and academia. A good way to start is by setting broad, long-term goals (e.g., I want to graduate with a degree) and then narrowing them down into smaller, more manageable ones (e.g., I need to get an A on my next math test so I can qualify for the internship). One of the most important things about goal setting is that it helps people know what they are working towards. This gives them something to strive for and provides a framework from which they can evaluate their progress.
