For everyone, everything that happens wrong is someone’s fault. At work or in life, every problem can be explained away with a reason but without taking responsibility, you are all the more likely to look at your career as a failure. It happens because you allow any passing wind to blow you around; all the while you blame the wind for how things turned out. But when you fail to responsibly guide your directions and outcomes, you create a miserable life. This is the kind of life that fills none of your dreams and aspirations.
But the good news is that you can change your life if you really want to. All starts with changing the way you think. Following are the few steps to get started to bring a positive change in your life:
Being with your mind:
For bringing a change, you initially have to start with changing the way you think. Your beliefs may have been residing in your mind for long times but believe that it is just a collection of continual thoughts which have formed appearing as s conviction. You have to break down your thinking into a manageable number of steps which will help you lessen the risks that are associated with a change.
Make your belief strong:
Beliefs form in your mind when you consider yourself capable of doing something. It is the belief that compels you to do something. So, when you bring clarity to your belief, your mind gets open, your opportunities become clear, and then you make efforts to change your beliefs into a reality. Your beliefs become your expectation and you make efforts to accomplish them.
Your change in expectation will change your attitude:
Most people have beliefs and when they do not turn them into expectations from themselves, they do not develop the attitude to actually turn them into a reality. According to Nelson Boswell, the first and most important step towards success is the expectation that you can succeed. It changes your attitude and you successfully make the change that you have been wanting to.
Change of behavior:
Once you become involved in changing your beliefs into expectations, your behavior starts to get changed. You start to bring personal changes in your life and remove the things that are not a priority anymore.
Improvement in performance:
Once you change your behavior, you get the courage to make changes in life. You start exploring things that you previously felt uncomfortable doing. It is the time when you understand that making changes is better for you. The changes in your behavior make it a lot better to achieve peak performance. You become better at whatever you do along with more concentration and interest.
Avoiding excuses can change your life:
When you start to avoid making excuses for what you cannot do, take responsibility for your actions and accept the outcomes, you reach your full potential. You do not allow the circumstances to take you away from your strong beliefs and your expectations. It is then when you turn your beliefs into a reality and live a life in a much better way.
