You want to become successful but you have no idea where to begin. Our mind is like a battlefield. Up and down, backwards and forward. And if we can’t control it – it will control us. When you conceive the idea that you want to level up your mind what is the next thing that follows that thought? Is it to go on a shopping spree? Get on the next flight to that exotic vacation? Unless you are in a place to do so, right? But if you want to level up I am of the opinion that you are somewhere down there. Many of us have been there. Moreover, how would you like the idea of levelling up but choose to remain isolated and lazy and is only in love with the idea because to dream of great things is the best thing that can happen to anyone? To dream of change and not act on it is catastrophic.
The idea of wanting to level up must begin with cultivating a certain attitude and mindset that will allow you to reach your goal. It’s easy to become frustrated with a life that’s going nowhere. Relationships, boring and unfulfilled jobs, limited finance and unpleasant friends circles. But unless you create a new mindset that will allow you to accomplish these goals those beautiful thoughts of a fulfilling and exciting life will be just that – thoughts.
Here Are Few Basics Tips For a Level Up Mindset.
Know Who You Are
Self-knowledge liberates you from the perceptions of others. By knowing who you are can lead to greater happiness and less inner conflict; and the strength to say “no.” It gives you a strong sense of self. In knowing yourself you discover your strength and weaknesses. You are able to determine your values and what genuinely interests you. You can be yourself when you know yourself. Knowing who you are will determine the achievement of your goals.
Improve Your Communication Skills
Listen. Listen. Listen. An important component of the communicating process. To do otherwise defeats the purpose of a conversation or message. An effective communicator is a good listener. Eliminate filter conversations and have practice conversations, and active listening. This will help you build stronger relationships and communicate effectively while you work your way to the top.
Being assertive is not arrogance or aggression. It is being self-assured and even-tempered. It is never “You always,” You never.” These phrases can shut down a conversation. Develop a habit of “I think” or “I believe.” Be confident and speak calmly. When others opinions differ, show respect and learn healthy compromise. Don’t forget to respectfully stand up for your interest and opinion.
Align With Your Goals
Set goals that are in alignment with your values and beliefs and be open to change. You need to set a goal in order to stay focused and align yourself with your purpose. Be consistent and patient. Most people failed because their goals are not in alignment with their actions and thoughts. Commit to your goals. Write them down, create a plan and act on them.
Develop Your Social Skills
Good social skills help you to network effectively. If you are an awkward person or struggle to be part of the conversation because of your shyness it will impact your social life and career. Make a decision to talk to others even if you feel nervous. As time goes by you will improve and become comfortable with it. If you want to keep the conversation going ask open-ended questions. Practice good manners and learn to understand body language. Join a social group and this will you improve your networking skills. It is necessary to begin small and grow. Practice listening and communication skills as I mentioned earlier.
None of us is perfect! Period! But we all want to be that individual who is held in respect and to be talked about as “noble.” We all want to live according to our deepest values. These values are what we do not compromise. One of these values is honesty. How often do you speak the truth? Is it something you are aware of when you don’t do it? Integrity helps to build trust and people are drawn towards such behaviour. Of course, there are those who prefer not to be around someone who is of integrity because it doesn’t suit their intention. Then there will be others who won’t mind because they have a face for everywhere they go and everyone they come into contact with. Integrity makes you secure and confident in who you are.
