The Right Mindset For Success Will Multiply Your Income One Day — Guaranteed!
What is behind the added value and continuous improvement?
It has been talked about, sung, and written about a lot, especially on Medium. It appears in ancient religious scriptures, this wisdom is not new.
It is ancient.
But it is always rehashed and repeated because it is true!
You have to realize it.
Even if you are disappointed so often.
No matter how many times you fail to achieve your goals, suffer setbacks, or are treated badly by other people.
If you have a mindset for success, you will have more success!
Some people reject this concept because it sounds too esoteric to them. For me, however, it has nothing to do with esoterica or faith; it is simply logical!
Think about it:
In our capitalist world — this is not meant to be a criticism, I am a fan of capitalism — it is always about whether there is a market for the service I produce.
Or to put it a little less abstract:
Does what I do help others?
That’s easy to understand.
If I help others, then they are grateful to me and pay me for it.
What is success?
In the context of this article, that is my definition of success:
As many people as possible are grateful for what I do and pay me for it.
The second part of this definition — that is, whether my performance benefits others and they are therefore grateful to me — has to do with my product.
The first part of this definition, however, is in my opinion much more difficult to realize.
It’s about the “as many people as possible.”
Serve more people!
If I make a great product, but can only make it for one person per year, then hopefully that one person will pay me enough money for it that I can live off of it.
If that’s not the case, that is, if that one customer is not willing to pay that much for it, then I have a productivity problem.
I should work on being able to produce more of these products per year so that I have more customers and also get more money from them.
I see marketing as a productivity problem in the same way.
I should be producing those marketing efforts that bring in more.
Whether that’s social media posts or public appearances doesn’t matter for this thought process. I need to produce more of what brings me closer to my goal of more sales.
So what does this have to do with a success mindset?
Quite simply, if you have set your mindset for success, you will always focus on the two factors of success:
1. good quality (read: customer value) and
2. high productivity
With constant improvement or increase in these two factors, I can serve more customers and get more money as a result.
There is nothing mystical or esoteric about this.
It is pure logic and mathematics.
Increase quality and quantity
Typical of a mindset that is NOT set up for success are thoughts like:
Ok, now I’ve been writing this book for three months and even uploaded it to this digital marketplace. Now I’m just going to wait for a whole lot of people to buy it.
I predict: That will only happen in an extremely few exceptional cases. The norm will be that hardly anyone even notices this book.
Someone with a success mindset would immediately go back to quality and productivity after completion.
For example, for more quality, gather as much feedback as possible to learn from it and make the next book better.
For more productivity, someone with a success mindset will think about how to produce more such books faster. Or how to reach more and more sustainable potential customers on social media in the same amount of time.
It’s all about continuous improvement and increasing quality and quantity.
THAT is a success mindset.
A success mindset is a growth mindset!
I meditate for an hour about success and lots of money and visualize myself in a Porsche or recommend the book “The Secret” to others on Facebook.
I also recommend this book, but only as a small mosaic stone in the success mindset, and not as a panacea.
The economic system of capitalism is often criticized for being designed for limitless growth. And that would lead to total exploitation of the planet until everything is just a cold desert.
I think that’s nonsense.
Not every company grows infinitely, on the contrary.
Every company goes bankrupt at some point or is actively closed by its owners.
How many 100+-year-old companies are there that are still active?
There aren’t many.
Every company ceases operations at some point. There’s nothing about limitless growth.
Internalize endurance and persistence!
But that’s not what a success or growth mindset is about. That’s not where I think about how to exploit the very last resources of the planet, but where I think about the following:
How can I use less time and energy to give more people what they want?
I can’t see anything negative in that.
If you really want to succeed, then internalize this principle and work on it every day.
If you want to become even better, then think about it every minute.
A success mindset does not question that I have to be fully committed.
On the contrary, a success mindset assumes that I ALWAYS will put in my fullest effort.
Avoid toxic thoughts
If you are looking for a get-rich-quick scheme, you have a similar mindset as someone who thinks he will land a bestseller with his first book.
Good luck! These coincidences also exist. But the chance of it is vanishingly small. Almost zero. And it is certainly not controllable.
This is not a success mindset.
It’s more of a
“just because I’m in the world, it should fall at my feet”
And that is very toxic. For yourself and also for your fellow human beings.
A success mindset will drive you to produce as much as possible of what other people need every day.
Hardly anyone gets it right from the start.
The mistakes and detours are part of it.
But you can pat yourself on the back every time for finding that mistake — how not to do it. Or that you started running for the detour in the first place.
In doing so, you’ve also produced something for others: You can point out to others: Watch out, it doesn’t work that way. That’s not much added value, but it’s better than nothing.
And someone who just sits on their butt waiting for luck to fall into their lap and doesn’t even try, can’t tell that story, and just doesn’t add value for other people.
- focus on what you can produce for other people (the added value)
- constantly work on improving quality
- constantly work on increasing productivity
- set yourself up for a long journey. Forever if necessary.
