To change your mindset for success, you first need to identify the qualities that you would like to adopt. You need a starting point in which you can begin this change.
Let’s examine the qualities of successful people so that you can emulate them. Why reinvent the wheel after all, when we have amazing people who fit the bill as our role model.
From the list below, identify what qualities that resonate with you and adopt them.

Change Your Mindset: The need to change arises
We sometimes become aware in life that we aren’t achieving the standard of success that we believed we could. This is a difficult reality. The only choice that you have is to change.
We first need to take responsibility for what we can change. Certainly events happen in our life that we have no control over; it’s what we do in these difficult times that defines our character.
Do you need to change your mindset? Is there something, perhaps a belief that you have that is getting in your way of reaching success?
Change Your Mindset: Strategies to living in the moment
You have to believe that something is important in order to give it attention. I know, that sounds like it’s a no-brainer.
When a person believes that work, for example, is more important than playing ball with their child, it’s time to for a mindset change. I actually know this man.
Many of us would like to think that we’re above making such a poor decision. Unfortunately, it’s not always conscious. Whether we’re conscious of it or not, we make decisions every day about what our priorities are just by the way that we spend our time and energy.
He believed work was that much more important, and now his adult son barely wants anything to do with him. That choice drove a wedge in their relationship.
Being able to live in the moment is a precious gift that allows you to appreciate your family, work, health, friends, and other aspects of life. Change your mindset to a “present moment mindset” and you will feel happier in the long run.
Here are some strategies to adopt:
- Disconnect from technology. Put away your phone and stop checking email for a portion of each day. These distractions prevent you from focusing on what is going on around you.
- Avoid thinking about the past. Thinking about the past most definitely affects your ability to live in the present.
- Avoid judging the present situation. It can lead to negative thoughts and emotions.
- Avoid living on autopilot. Instead, pay attention to your surroundings and feelings.
Change Your Mindset: Unrealistic expectations of others
If you expect too much from yourself (or from others), you’re bound to feel frustration. No one is perfect. Having high standards is a fantastic quality, it’s a problem when others that we love don’t value the same things.
If you want to have success in your relationships, examine whether or not your expectations are too high for the individual.
This way, if things don’t work out according to plan, you won’t get upset and you won’t give up. The change you could adopt in your mindset could be… grace.
If you depend on others for your happiness, you may be sorely disappointed. After all, you’re responsible for your own joy. Also, blaming others for your misery, won’t bring you any closer to happiness! Instead, focus on what you have to be grateful for. You’ll feel liberated because you no longer harbor negative feelings towards others.
Change Your Mindset: Is your ego getting in your way?
Instead of associating ego with detrimental personal traits, you could associate a strong ego with strong character. With a developed ego, you learn to have a healthy sense of self. And a healthy sense of self helps you be a person of character.
Unfortunately, you can also work this in reverse: act like a person of character and you’ll learn to have a healthy sense of self. In other words, you’ll develop your ego.
Expanding Your Mind Strengthens Your Ego
In addition to practicing good character, expanding your mind contributes to a happy and full life, strengthens your ego, and gives you more opportunities to demonstrate your character.
Change Your Mindset: Scarcity Consciousness vs. Abundance Consciousness
The very first step in building a wealth and prosperity mindset is to start expanding your awareness of wealth and prosperity.
Right now you may be in the habit of looking at the dark side of every situation. Perhaps you worry about how little money you have or you feel the heavy burden of too many bills. In order to turn this perception around, make it a point to see the abundance that surrounds you:
- Be grateful for the money you do have.
- Feel optimistic that you will receive more soon.
- Believe you can improve your life and make more money.
It’s also important for your perception of wealth to be in line with attracting it. You can’t have a negative opinion of wealthy people and expect to get wealthy yourself! It just won’t happen because you block wealth from coming to you every time you speak or think negatively about wealth or wealthy people.
Instead, start paying more attention to wealthy people you can admire. Read about great philanthropists or celebrities who do important work with their money. Seek out success stories about people who started with nothing and became millionaires.
The more you do this, the more you’ll change your perception of what it means to be wealthy and you’ll begin drawing more tangible expressions of wealth into your life.

Wow, I can relate to this post more than you know. I grew up in a low-income family, and we faced some pretty rough times. One thing that I always heard in my household was something to the effect of “There’s not enough money to do that”.
My stay-at-home Mom was in charge of the finances, and she was always so self-sacrificing with where the money went. It was always about taking care of everyone but her, no matter how much she deserved some of it. When it came to the household, she was constantly trying to find ways to cut corners and save money. I can see why I’ve grown into that same mindset of scarcity.
