Want Success? Change Your Mind-Set!

Do You Have The Right Mind-Set for Success?

drawing of a brain

How you do in life and what you achieve in life basically comes from what you think or your own mindset.  You have to ask yourself why some people make it, as in wealth, career, getting the life they really want and why others don’t.

Do they know a secret that you don’t?  Well yes, some of them may.  Others it may be what they are taught from a young age and for others simply it is just the way they think, maybe because of their personality. Read on to learn how you can get the best mindset to lead you to success.

It all starts in the mind and from there to decisions and goal setting.  Now I’m no expert in this and I myself am continually learning to grow and strengthen my own mind to help me become a greater success in my chosen businesses.

One thing is for sure is that if you want to succeed in business, especially your own business you have to have the right mindset and motivation.

Starting or working on your own business although rewarding can be difficult at times.  You are your own boss so have nobody to answer to or make sure you are working and putting in the hours needed. You have no one to hold you accountable for getting things done and hitting targets except you.

So here I am going to share with you 3 very powerful videos and suggest a few books for you to read that explain why some people make it big and others don’t! If you watch these and study any of the books they are going to make an impact on you. They will change the way you think, improve your motivation levels and help you quickly and confidently make better decisions in your business and life.

This may be a bold statement but these are tried and true for many people around the world and I don’t think you will be any different.

The following people are successful business people themselves and their videos and books have been used and shared by top business owners and entrepreneurs for years, some even decades. This is a testament in itself of how useful they are going to be to you.

I have watched these videos and read these books myself and they have made a huge difference in not only how I do business but also my personal life and relationships.

Order the books, read online, save the videos to your favourites. Whatever you like just keep them handy if you ever need to go over them or revisit them in the future.


The Law of Success- In 16 Lessons by Napoleon Hill      – this is not only a book but a life course! This book was first published in 1925 and it still remains popular today.  This book consists of 16 sections relating to the laws for success.  The book was written after Hill interviewed and studied over 100 of America’s millionaires.

Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki   – this book teaches about financial intelligence and how to build wealth by investing wisely.  Many have read this book and it has been endorsed by people such as Oprah Winfrey and Will Smith. It gives great insight into how you don’t have to be a highly educated scholar wise to become wealthy or a success.

The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason               – this book again teaches of financial security and intelligence and is done so through Clason’s telling of stories.  A really good read full of common sense and advice that we may be ignoring in our lives.


Earl Nightingale – The Strangest Secret

A must watch or even get the MP3 to listen to time and again until it becomes second nature. Nightingale defines success as “success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal” and he explains why goal setting for success is a MUST.

Mel Robbins – The Secret to Self-Motivation

Mel speaks about how your brain uses fear to keep you from getting what you want. She explains how you can trick your mind so fear does not kick in and how you can use this very trick to stop hesitating and become more decisive. Mel discovered how to use this trick at a very low period in her life and it has helped propel her into success.

Watch Mels video on YouTube here.

I hope these really can help you on the way to a more successful and fulfilling life.  They sure have started helping me.

  1. So…the videos are unavailable on youtube. Just thought to let you know. But in terms of the topic itself, a change in mindset can solve our attitudes for basically everything we do normally. The problem is that many people have different ways of thinking so something that may work for one, may be useless to another. Not only that but you have to take Nurture into account with the environment they’ve been raised in and how that affects their behaviour towards their own tasks. It’s a bit more complicated than it seems, but hey, that’s why we have psychology.

    • HI and thanks for the heads up on videos I will have a look at it, maybe a broken link!  Yes nurture does play an important part on who we are but knowing there are ways in which we can change for the better is always good.  Anyone can make changes to their lives for the better if they choose to do so it is only about understanding the ways in which we can.

  2. This is very useful peace of blog you have done well  I my self I will have to look for these books  I have heard of  rich Dad poor Dad many times but I have never taken a look at it  I think know should be the time for me I usually listen to inspiration from  men of God one in particular is Joel Osteen he is my number one but that doesn’t mean their no orthers better than him.

    • Hi Charles, I am glad you liked my post.  I try to vary my reading and listening as much as possible.  just to ensure I am as well rounded as I can be and to clean as much information as I can on many topics.
