As far as blogs go this is one if the best we've ever had uploaded onto the site from Hellie Flow, a mind coach and current operator in the security industry.
When it comes to carving out or sustaining a successful career there are many factors that are needed. It is obvious that getting as much experience as possible and being trained to the highest level are vital ingredients to getting yourself onto a good job or growing within the one you already have. These are extremely important factors, because as a professional, you should always strive to better yourself by getting more experience and by pushing yourself to learn and grow. In life and in your career, the only way to get somewhere is to enrich yourself on a daily basis by adding to your mind library at any chance given or by creating chances when they aren’t given. Those who are hungry for knowledge and information will always be many steps ahead of those who want to get somewhere, without making any real effort on their side. What you give is what you receive, so the more you give from yourself, the more that will come back to you.
When it comes to job searching, I often read posts online from people who moan and complain that they can’t get any work, even though they do everything they can in order to. My opinion is that when someone says they do everything to achieve a goal, but they still can’t, then they must be lying. If a person truly wants something and does everything in their power to get it, they will get it, no doubt. But just to mention that this rule only applies to those who have chosen the right path in life. It is very true that we are all good at some things and not so good at other things. You have to be sure that what you have chosen to do IS the right thing for you and you have what it takes to turn it into a success. Everything is achievable with hard work and dedication ONLY if it is a match for your personality and character. If you believe that you are doing everything in your power to achieve a goal, but it just isn’t happening, it is time to ask yourself: “Have I chosen the right path in life for myself?”. A reality check may bring painful truths out, but at least it will stop you from wasting your time. The sooner you realise the truth, the sooner you can get yourself on the right track. But if you are sure that your chosen path is the ONE for you, if you have every belief that you have what it takes to make a success of yourself in your chosen field, I don’t want to hear anything that even resembles moaning, complaining or looking for the fault in outside factors. The only person responsible for the results you get is YOU! Man up and take control of your life! It’s in your hands only! If you are not getting what you want, then you are not giving enough from yourself in order to. And this doesn’t necessarily mean you aren’t doing everything physically possible that you can. You may be. But it’s not just the physical side of your efforts that is needed. It isn’t enough to just be trained to the highest level or to have good experience in the background, and this is why I am writing this article, to open your eyes up to the one and only truth…
So in order to get somewhere in life, with your job search or within your field, you have to live every day with a mission to grow. Every day should be a journey that gets you to new heights and new destinations, and not just a mix of automatic acts you do in order to survive. Enrich yourself on a daily basis by self-educating through different means, communicating with people and soaking up some of their knowledge. You should constantly be hungry for more. Those who go up in life, move themselves in that direction, because they know that staying in one place will not make the fairy godmother transport them up with her magic stick. This is life and we are the magicians… We have our magic sticks inside our heads. We can have, be and do anything our hearts desire, but we have to put in the effort required. If we don’t, we will always stay in one place.
But let’s be honest, there are people who live with constant hunger to learn and grow, and I know a few too, but still struggle to either find work or get the desired results out of the work they are currently doing, whether these results are more money, a promotion, recognition etc. Many, if not most people, are too lazy to put in any effort into building their dream life, so I take my hat of to anybody who pushes to be better and evolve as a human being. If you do too, even if you are not getting quite what you believe you should out of it, you are GREAT, believe me. You are just missing the other vital ingredient to the ‘success mix’… And this other vital ingredient to making a success out of whatever you are doing is to have A POSITIVE MINDSET. A positive mindset combined with the hunger to turn yourself into a better version than the one you were yesterday on a daily basis, are TWO ingredients which, and I am writing this with capital letters - ONLY WORK COMBINED in order to bring results. Both of these ingredients can get you to places even if you lack one or the other, but at some point or another, you will reach your limit and hit the ceiling. On the other hand, if you have both in your tookit combined, you will turn yourself into a LIMITLESS being that flows through life like a soaring eagle and reaches height after height. On their own, these two powerful tools are not enough to carry you through to the desired results completely, but use them together and oh boy, your life will literally become magnificent.
So what does it mean to have a positive mindset?
Those who have a positive mindset don’t see the anything as a setback, however disarming it may be when it happens. Those with a positive mindset are warriors who use everything to their advantage. They never play the victim when they get slapped in the face by life or ask questions such as “Why me?”, “What did I do to deserve this?”, “What will I do now?”. They only ask questions such as: “Where did I go/What did I do wrong in order to attract this into my life?”, “What can I change about me or the way I do things in order to prevent this from happening to me in the future?”, “What can I learn from this in order to better myself, add new tools to my kit and become a better version of myself today than I was yesterday?”. Even if they are sure they aren’t to blame for something, they always take responsibility for every single thing that affects them one way or another. If it affects them, it is their problem regardless of what caused it or where it came from as they know they are in charge of the way they feel. Living with this mentality is the only way for them to gain something positive out of whatever life throws at them. It's the only way for them to make the necessary changes.
Positive people have such great belief in themselves, that they work hard on being or becoming blind to the negatives in life. This doesn’t mean they don’t sometimes get low and feel down, none of us can be perfect, but at least they constantly work on keeping their “pink glasses” on. They believe that whatever happens, happens in the best possible way for them. They know that the only way is UP, and this is what differentiates them from negative people. No matter what happens to them, even if it isn’t pleasant at all, they know it’s just part of their journey to the heights they have in sight. Positive people trust the world’s powers and they trust their own powers. They know that only good things are to come, even if the road has a few holes and bumps here and there.
Everyone can feel other people’s energy, so if you are a positive person who is full of desire to live and reach great destinations, this will radiate from you so strongly, it will shower everyone you come in contact with. People will feel this through everything that you do. This is why it so important to be like this, because this is what makes others attracted to you. If you are applying for jobs, if you are trying to make an impression, if you want to show people that you are the best choice for their company, or the best choice for a promotion, you have to shine in every meaning of the word.
Having the two qualities that I talk about in this article will turn you into an irresistible human being and you will be noticed and awarded accordingly, even if there are people more qualified than you for these rewards. Everybody wants to be surrounded by positive, hungry, charming people who are so confident in themselves, they have no doubts they will succeed in life. If you live with this belief, everyone will believe you too! Who wants to miss out on having such special people around? NO ONE!!!
By being a positive and full of hunger individual, you tell everyone you come in contact with that you are a LEADER! Being able to shine with positivity and having confidence and belief in yourself are true signs of leadership. You are not controlled by your circumstances, surroundings or current situation in life. You are in control, you are HERE TO STAY and become the best version of yourself you can be.
This is what people need! This is what employers look for! This is what you have to be!
You can be/become so irresistible that you are chosen over more qualified people than you. It is all in your hands. Everyone can sense when you have doubts about yourself and everyone can sense exactly how strong you are mentally. If you want to get somewhere in life, if you want to achieve your goals and desires, you have to have absolute belief in your abilities and show that you are not to be messed with. Combine this with positive charm and approach to life, and you will not only attract incredible things, but people will be attracted to you like paperclips to a magnet. I have achieved things that I never even dreamed of only because I live with this mentality. I have on numerous occasions made people so attracted to me, even though I was far from qualified for what they had to offer, that they would not leave me until I agree to be a part of their company or project. I have no doubts in my abilities and I am full of belief that I will get to The Top in life. I strive to be the best every day of my life and even though I do let myself down every now and again, I always keep coming back stronger than ever. I live with the mentality of a WARRIOR and I see myself as GREAT. I am also full of positive energy and vibes and I shower the world with these. When people contact me for certain things, they can always sense this from me. No one wants to lose people like this, because they are so rare. This is why you have to become like this too! Because this is the KEY, this is the TRUTH to how ordinary people achieve extraordinary things!
It’s in your hands only to start working on bettering yourself on a daily basis and it’s in your hands only to become a positive person. The first requires constantly educating and enriching yourself physically and mentally, which can only happen with effort on your side. Don’t be lazy and don’t put things off. No one will do it for you. The second - having a positive mindset also takes effort and daily practicing. I know many would say that they struggle to be positive because of this and that, but this is what differentiates strong people from weak people. Strong people don’t allow their outside world to dictate the state of their inner world. Start smiling and enjoying life regardless of what is happening and how bad things are at the moment, and who knows, things may suddenly change. Be a true leader of your life and every time you do anything, do it in a manner which shows your greatness.
You will succeed at whatever it is you want to succeed at with this approach to life. It isn’t easy, no one said it will be, but if you have chosen the easy path in life, don’t moan and complain when you get things reflective of this. No one can force you to be a great individual and to become successful, but if you want to be, you have to put in the effort required and transform your inner world, the way you see yourself and the way you live your life on a daily basis.
Believe in yourself!
Enrich yourself every day by adding to your mind library!
Stay physically fit, this will help your mental state enormously!
Never get down when bad things happen, they are on your path to the greatness that’s waiting for you at the end for a reason!
Never get discouraged, only use negatives to better yourself and learn about yourself, life and the world!
Live with more LOVE towards the Universe!
