It’s only human to often overthink things and to fall back on old – good or bad – habits. “Mindset Secrets” opens your eyes to the power of thought and of habit. The techniques find the fundamental base in old adage that draws on teachings in Bhagavad Gita that one’s thinking directly influences the things one does. And the things that one does ultimately become habits; and further these become destiny. We all have choices in how we think, but rarely make a conscious choice while thinking.
The author shares Seven Noble Truths of a Winner, the key pillars of champion thinking. You make choices, and there are consequences of those choices.
From the Book
“If you want to make a contribution to the world, dream big… When you dream big and follow your passion, you begin to do new and different things, bit by bit, gradually, until the whole direction of your life changes.”
“You are born a human with a brain…. Within you is the power to create your own future and shape your destiny… The first step is to activate the beliefs that guide you toward the outcomes you want.”
“You are the creator of everything that you experience… How you perceive the world and respond to events creates your reality. Therefore, you are the owner of your life and everything in it!… Life is about creating yourself and your circumstances.”
“As the Creator, you are Un-creator and Re-creator of your reality.”
“Truth # 3: Great Achievement is a Process…You must trust the process and allow it to unfold; otherwise, you will give up because you will want too much too fast and make the critical mistake of skipping important steps.”
“Every person who ever accomplished something that was thought to be impossible simply performed a series of small tasks that were possible… Since winning is a process, it takes time, effort, and refinement to get to a big goal.”
“Truth # 5: Willingness if more important than desire. The willingness to do creates the ability to do.”
“Records are meant to be broken by people just like you…It’s never too late to become the person you always wanted to be.”
“You cannot out-perform your self-image… With healthy self-images comes confidence, and with a poor self-image come hesitancy and doubt.”
“My definition of commitment is simple: doing the thing you said you were going to do long after the excitement and jubilation you initially felt has faded.”
“Seek Wisdom Over Advice: Advice tells you what to do; wisdom tells you how to figure out what to do.”
