Steps to Success: 4 Secrets You Probably Don’t Know

Today, it seems like there is a secret recipe for success that only a few are privy to. The truth is there is no secret recipe or special course you can take or even one particular piece of advice you should follow. Getting to the top of the ladder of success does not mean that you have to be the brightest or the stronger or the most knowledgeable. Getting there means you need to have the strength of character to stand strong in the face of adversity and keep climbing. Being successful is all about being mentally tough.

8 Tips to Help You Reset Your Brain – and Your Body

Your schedule is hectic, you go from work to home and take your job with you, all the way into the bedroom. Every day is ruled by schedules, meetings, and sales pitches; your brain is foggy and constantly tired. You find it hard to think critically, solve problems, or even pay much attention to things; it feels like you’re walking around in a daze and when you do try to relax, you find it hard – sound familiar?

This is because your brain has become conditioned to do these things over a period of time and it’s a physiological phenomenon. As you continue this stress-filled routine, neural pathways in your brain fix themselves and your mind conditions itself to working in this manner. This ability of the brain is called neuroplasticity; it can be defined as the brain’s ability to organize and then reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout your life. In simple terms, the neurons in your brain adjust to compensate for your thoughts and activities. Continue reading…

The Power of An Attitude of Gratitude

Growing up, you often hear that gratitude is important because it allows you to be content with what you have. Being grateful and having an attitude of gratitude makes it possible to not fall into the negative space of resenting those who appear to have more than you do. It’s okay to want more, but do not dwell on it. Being grateful while simultaneously wanting to improve things will keep you motivated to keep working toward your goals.

Prevent False Positivity

Being positive is important, but if your positivity is not authentic, it is not doing you any favors. Remember that it’s impossible to be happy and smiling 100 percent of the time. You can be a positive person and still experience negative emotions. When negative emotions occur, use your gratitude to help you to process and overcome them. For example, if you become angry over something not going as you’d like, focus on the things you are grateful for to remind yourself that even though this might not have happened, you have other things to be happy about.

They Don’t Allow Others to Define Their Success

Success is a word that means different things for different people. You have to define what success is to you and run with it! Do not let someone else tell you whether or not your idea of success is untrue, inaccurate, or impossible. For example, many people see success purely from a financial place, but others see this as only a piece of the pie.
