In part 1 of this subject, I shared some of my story of the limited thinking and false beliefs I had to overcome in order to move forward in life. Progressive thinking was always met with internal and external road-blocks, which has always presented the temptation to resign to mediocrity.
There were also some major set-backs, but because I was not willing to settle with wooden nickels, my determination powered by God’s grace prevailed, and continues to prevail through any type of adversities. Moving from limited thinking to progressive thinking is foundational to the psychology of success, and must be pursued in a bold and intentional way.
Tips On Overcoming Limited Thinking
There is a multitude of tips, techniques, training, resources and such to develop a healthier mindset, but here are just a few snappy tips that you can put into practice right away:
- Take-in the goods: Consume information products & resources on the subject: books, websites, audio’s, video, seminars, workshops, etc.
- Change your environment: Distance yourself from, or at least limit your time with narrow-minded friends and family and spend more of your time with positive and encouraging people who aren’t afraid to think big. Have good mentors.
- Change-up your routine: Order something on the menu you haven’t ordered before, do the opposite of what you normally do on Friday night or Monday morning, go a different way to the market, do your daily routine backwards (switch morning from evening), and always be willing to stretch your comfort zone.
- Welcome different perspectives: Don’t isolate yourself to one faction or category of people where everyone thinks the same, but be open to other people with other views. This doesn’t mean you need to adhere to various views, but just to be more open-minded and objective.
- Welcome change: Consider an accident, setback, roadblock, detour, loss, misfortune or any kind of life altering event, however small or big, as an opportunity to grow and do something different.
- Initiate change: Don’t just wait for change, make the change by living life intentionally and by design- not by default. It’s been well said that “If you want things in your life to change, than you must change things in your life”
- Be committed to health & wellness: Regard your body as a holy temple that you are constantly improving as you vigilantly guard it from abuse, pollution, neglect and such. Your body can also be likened to your life-vehicle that you need to have running in optimum condition.
- Be committed to personal development: Regard your mind and spirit as the inner-sanctum of your temple and your greatest asset that you constantly invest in to become an even better version of YOU.
A Masterpiece In Progress
Overcoming limited thinking is an essential element in the psychology of success and must be squared-off with in a courageous and proactive manner. As we begin to develop more positive and progressive thinking, we can then create a positive snow-ball effect with the power of advanced thinking.
The main idea here is to cultivate a mindset that is always moving forward. Rejoice and celebrate the milestones of progress, but don’t get complacent or ever think you have “arrived”. Always look for more possibilities and ways to improve and enjoy the process of designing your life-masterpiece of the only YOU there is.
Let us not confuse the limitations of our mind with the real possibilities of our life
