Three days and counting before 2022 will be in our review mirrors and we look ahead to the brand new year of 2023.
I’m sure you’ll agree that this year – and the past two years – have been challenging, and maybe “challenging” isn’t a strong enough word to describe the last two years, but above all - we made it.
The light is at the end of the tunnel and, hopefully, for most of us, what happened this year and last year and the year before has given us perspective on how to approach this coming year and what we can do differently.
However, many of us fall into a trap during the holidays or when life gets stressful and falling into that trap – and not getting out of it – can put a huge mark on your business, your family and friends, and most importantly, yourself.
The Trap of Victim Mentality
Victim mentality. The “woe is me” outlook to life that someone has whenever things get tough. The clinical definition is when a person feels or believes they are a victim across various situations, even when the evidence suggests otherwise.
Admit it – you’ve experienced this; we all have at one point in our lives where when everything goes wrong or falls apart, we blame it on fate or destiny or the guy at the grocery store, the lady driving in front of us, our parents, our siblings, whatever the case may be.
In many cases, these are just minor inconveniences for us because we just need someone to blame, but for some people this is a serious condition for them; they are incapable of breaking out of that cycle of “poor me” or “everything bad happens to me”.
Unfortunately, it’s far easier to fall into this trap than it is to get out of it. But you absolutely can get out of it.
Mindset & the REAL Key to Your Success
I’ve talked about mindset before and how it's our thoughts, experiences, and others that help to shape how we approach things and people in our lives.
So often, especially in business, we tend to look at the next big thing or the newest trend and think that “if I just do that” or “if I just go there” all of your problems are solved.
But that’s not how that works.
Now I’m gonna reveal the hidden secret that everyone, including you, is looking for when it comes to gaining success. You ready?
That hidden secret, that golden nugget of knowledge is this – the key to your success is…you.
If you put 100% of your efforts into your business, but more importantly into yourself, then you will most definitely see 100% returns in the things you do. But to do that, you have to put your time, heart, effort, self, and mind into that action.
Victim mentality happens and recognizing when it does means you’re able to step out of that mindset and take accountability. This can be a tough process, so it’s okay not to do it by yourself.
This is where having an accountability partner or group is so beneficial because you have people helping and supporting you, helping you take action, and helping you reach your goals:
And that’s it!
You are the number one key ingredient to your success and for a lot of us, going alone can only go so far. So why not find your accountability partner and group with us at AstroFlipping?
