How to Develop a Success Driven Mindset ~ KayCee Enterprises
The more focused you are on success, the more likely you are to attain said success. Most of you have probably heard of the book “The Secret” where the author delves into the idea of putting out positive thoughts (thinking positively), and even being very specific about those thoughts, will result in you getting what you want. While it’s not really that simple, having a success-focused mindset will help you achieve more success. But what if you’re not naturally a positive thinking (or success thinking) person? How can you develop a success-focused mindset?


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.

Your Mind

Your mind is the part of you that makes you who you are – your personality, your habits – all come from the way you focus your mind. It enables you to reason and perceive the world around you. Your mind is the part of you that feels emotions, and is able to judge right from wrong. By taking care of your mind, you’ll be able to think more positively and focus on your success.

Your Body

Yes, your body! It’s included in this list because while your mind controls your body, if your body is not healthy no amount of mind control is going to help you. Keeping your body healthy by moving around every day, eating right, along with getting regular check-ups, will help you keep your body healthy as well as allow your mind to focus on success. So exercise and clean eating is important in achieving your success. Don’t believe me?

Your Spirit

When I talk spirit, I’m not talking about the religious aspect of things. Instead, I’m talking about the part of your that feels at peace or in constant turmoil. For you to get a success driven mind, you must get your spirit together as well. A great way to get your spirit together is with meditation. Sit for awhile, with no distractions, and focus on positive thoughts. Get doubt, distractions, and negativity out of your mind. An EXCELLENT way to do this is through journaling. Journaling helps you write away the negativity and remember why you started your business in the first place. It helps you to remember how strong and how driven you are. And on the days in which you need a reminder, it’s a great way to go back and see for yourself how far you’ve come, all the obstacles you’ve overcome, and how strong you are. Take time, usually first thing in the morning, to meditate and write in your journal.


The ability to look honestly at any situation and evaluate it without an emotional attachment is an essential part of turning your mind around to a successful thought process instead of that of failure. For instance, don’t automatically concede failure if someone doesn’t return a call or says they are not ready to work with you. There may be many ligitament reasons at play. If they didn’t return your call, they might not have gotten your message in the first place – not everyone listens to their voicemail. Or if they say they are not ready to work with you, they actually might not have the funds to work with you at the moment, but they may come back to you when ready. This is actually a scenario that has happened to me on many occassions. Make it a habit of assuming a real reason before turning to negativity in any situation.


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.

Make Lists

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:

Get Clients Now: A 28-Day Marketing Program for Professionals, Consultants, and Coaches by C.J. Hayden

Book Yourself Solid: The Fastest, Easiest, and Most Reliable System for Getting More Clients by Michael Port

How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

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!
