"A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes."
– Mahatma Gandhi
“...Happiness is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.”
– Hellen Keller
Can you find purpose in what you do? The key to achieving goals and building happiness lies in developing a clear sense of purpose. Individuals perform optimally and make experiences more rewarding by engaging in meaningful endeavors. Committing to objectives that are authentic builds satisfaction and helps people focus on tasks that lead to desired outcomes.
Can you change your perspective? How people perceive a situation makes or breaks the power to transform their thinking, interpretations, and behavior. Negative and fixed beliefs magnify stressors and diminish the mental energy needed to solve problems. Positive beliefs cultivate self-awareness and esteem, mental prowess, and the ability to change and grow.
Can you be persistent? A personal attribute that leads to success in any field is persistence. More often than not, people don't achieve outcomes because they throw in the towel too soon, forget about the process, or have difficulty overcoming setbacks. People with a winning mentality understand that perseverance and a willingness to fail are vital to becoming successful -- they learn from mistakes and make adjustments in order to reach their goals.
Can you identify possibilities and turn them into actualities? Problem-solving and critical thinking encourages people to pursue possibilities and create new experiences. Focusing on "doing" (rather than overthinking) enables individuals to gain insight and learn from their actions. Developing a positive attitude that promotes curiosity trains the mind to start looking for solutions, which helps possibilities become actualities.
“Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
– Thomas Edison
“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!”
– Audrey Hepburn
