Developing a success-focused mindset starts with developing three important aspects within yourself -mind, body and spirit. If you can practice on focusing on all three of these aspects, then having a success-focused mindset will become second nature to you.
Usually, when we are put under pressure we tend to have some habits that we turn to. Some people just automatically give up – the pressure is too much for them. If you’re one of these people, you need to tell yourself you’ll continue trying and not give up. Keep in mind, when I say keep trying, I don’t mean continue doing the exact same thing (remember the definition of insanity), but continue trying different ways in persuit of your successful outcome. Adversity is a necessary component in life. Without trials and tribulations, what good is success? Think of how sweet success feels when it wasn’t so easy to achieve.
I also want you to remember that consistancy is key in the step to success. If you quit, you’ll never know if your next try would have been the successful one.
Try keeping a daily schedule for work, with to-do items listed in order of priority. As you check them off, you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment. The ones you don’t check off, simply move them to the next day and make them priorities for that day. As you get used to feeling as if you’re accomplishing something every day, you’ll feel more successful and therefore automatically develop a more success-driven mindset.
I’m going to add one more – reading. Successful people are always bettering themselves through education. They educate themselves on (obviously) issues they are unsure or unaware about, how businesses more successful than them attained that level of success, and just all of the changing aspects of business on a whole.
Some great reading material for this is:

Finally, it’s important to remember to maintain your focus on positive affirmations and thoughts. Turn each negative thought into a positive, flip it around in your mind, and move forward. Sometimes you only need a little modification in something to turn a failure into an outright success!
Once you’ve built the mindset, it’s time for you to take that mindset and implement in into your daily work life. That’s where this blog post comes into play, You’re Building a Business Not Getting Another Job. In it, I remind you how to act like a business owner and not another employee in the everyday 9-5 struggle.
