What does success mean to you? Is it meeting your monthly target, a deadline or a certain goal?
To me, the simplest definition of success is “accomplishing what you set out to achieve.”
Some may aim their goals higher than others, yet in my experience there is something that all achievers have in common.
Having had the fortune of working with thousands of high performing individuals and leaders across the globe, my team and I were passionate about uncovering what really drives those to achieve. What we discovered is that the secret of success is in the mind!
Sure, we agree that there are many things that contribute to success – however among the high performers we observed, we discovered that they each adopt similar mental strengths. We have since collated these observations into a mindset model for success – what we call, the ‘GOLDEN’ mind.
Achievers, adopt what Carol Dweck termed a Growth mindset, believing that intelligence can be developed versus a fixed mindset where people believe their intelligence and abilities are static. People with a growth mindset see a FAIL as a ‘First Attempt in Learning’ rather than believing they will never achieve.
People adopting a GOLDEN mind are Optimistic – they make the choice to view the world through a positive lens and reap the rewards of many personal and business benefits.
Did you know for example that optimistic employees are 56 per cent more productive and six times more engaged and 39 per cent more likely to live to the age of 94. Impressive stats right!
