Success; it’s all in the mind, isn’t it? “ Engaging in limiting thoughts limits your ability to succeed,” says life coach and Inc. columnist Marla Tabaka. Thanks to the popularization of psychology findings and Oprah in the last 10 years, we’ve come to better accept just how one’s thoughts can drastically shape experiences and perception of reality.
Negative thoughts can lead to stress-related illnesses and just a negative life experience. In her recent post for Inc., Tabaka identifies ways to improve one’s outlook, and therefore, improve one’s experience. The post was tailored to business owners and business professionals, who are the main readers of Inc., but the suggestions can be applied to everyone. A few of these suggestions include:
-Changing your environment. This means not being stuck in the office all day. Engage in changing your sceneary and taking a walk, which would help you appreciate all the nature and lanscrapes that exist outside of your cubicle. -
-Engage with positive people – it’s easy to understand how the company you keep affects your life since the ideas and views that emerge from your network can be a source of inspiration…or have the opposite effect. With that said try to seek out people who have an uplifting attitude about work and money. Tabaka takes it a step further and suggests that you “observe their language, including their body language. Mimic the tone and body language and notice how much better it feels to you.”
-Appreciate your current wealth. Essentially, count your blessings. Focusing on what you have rather than focusing on what you don’t have is sure to lift your mood and help you “attract” more of the good stuff. Sound familiar? It’s the universal law of attraction.
