We can learn a lot by observing the most successful among us in action. What thoughts do they have during their day? What makes them tick? Here are 12 of their most powerful thoughts.
1. I love my job!
The most successful have taken the time to find out who they are and what makes them tick. Their work resonates with every fiber of their being, and they love what they do.
2. I will see this through.
Even when things are looking grim or there are huge obstacles in the way of success, remarkably successful people persevere toward the achievement of their goals.
3. I will find a better way.
When they see that a system isn’t working any longer, they brainstorm ideas for making something that is broken work again.
4. I have my day mapped out.
They schedule out their day and conquer their top priorities first, crossing tasks off their list as they are accomplished.
5. I might stumble, but I will not fall.
Successful people know that they won’t succeed at everything and that there will be those inevitable failures. They turn these failures into learning experiences and keep going strong, knowing the next success is right around the corner.
6. I have the time.
Successful people find the time to achieve their goals of the day, even if it means getting up at 5 a.m. or working late into the night.
7. I will continue to grow as a person.
The most successful people aren’t searching for perfection and instead have an insatiable curiosity and thirst for learning new things and ways of doing things. They have a deep desire to grow personally and professionally and learn as much as they can along their way to huge success.
8. I create my own success.
They don’t rely on others to pave their way to success. They truly believe that through their commitment, work ethic, and beliefs, success can be theirs.
9. I am focused on the here and now.
They don’t let past mistakes bog them down and instead live each day as if it is a new, fresh beginning–a new day to lay down the path for accomplishing their goals and even to begin new goals.
10. I have clear goals.
Even if they aren’t necessarily 100 percent sure how they are going to achieve them at first, the most successful people always have clearly defined goals and know where their headed or, at least, where they want to be headed.
11. I know when it’s time to pull the plug.
When others might be tempted to hold on a few more days or weeks, the most successful people have an innate ability to know when the pursuit of a particular goal needs to end–that defining moment when they come to the realization that continued pursuit is a waste of their time and resources.
12. I am so thankful for what I have.
They never forget to be thankful for what and whom they have in their lives and the successes they have achieved. They appreciate the support from family, friends, and colleagues and make sure to let them know how appreciated they are on a regular basis.
