We Become What We Think AboutEarl Nightingale
Every day, our thoughts matter. The things we think about become our reality.
I’ve spent a lot of time this past year talking and writing about goals, habits, personal development, mindset, and anything closely related to any of these topics.
Our daily habits have an incredible impact on our lives in both the short, and long-term. Our habits shape our lives and if we are intentional with our habits, they can bring us a lot of joy and success.
The difference between successful people is often in their habits. Successful people do the things that unsuccessful people are unwilling to do.
Many success habits are simple to do. But the problem, as Jeff Olsen says, “things that are easy to do, are also easy not to do.”
Your life is as good as your mindset.Diddy
In my article, Mindset Questions: The Real Secret to Success, I explain how our Reticular Activating System (RAS) works, and how we can use it as a tool to achieve our goals and desires with Mindset Questions.
I strongly suggest you read the article. You will gain a better understanding of my ideas with Mindset Questions and can get the morning and evening Mindset Questions that I suggest using.
Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.Pelé
With everything I have been talking about in my articles, podcasts, and coaching I’ve explained the simple disciplines that can be adopted to help you develop a powerful mindset that will lead you to success.
I am finally excited to start to share my Mindset Journal with those who would like to implement these daily success strategies into their own lives.
My Mindset Journal includes:
- Goal Setting – Follow the system (From my Free Momentum Series) that will help you to develop a clear vision of your goals, develop a path to achieve them, and most importantly discover your true ‘WHY’ behind each goal.
- Scheduling – This journal allows you to properly plan and schedule your time. One of the most important habits you can develop with your scheduling is Blocking Time. Learn more about this topic in episode 013 of my Daily Success Strategies podcast HERE.
- Journaling – Journaling is a powerful tool to bring out your ideas and creativity. There are a number of easy to use journaling tools in my Mindset Journal. It begins with your Morning Journal [Create Your Life – write, design, and create your future…]. Evening Journal to reflect on your day, the things you’ve learned, and the thoughts you’ve had. Daily History – a brief history of the activities from the day. Weekly History – a time to review and note the most important things from your Daily History that week. Monthly History – a review and history of the most important things from your Weekly History journal entires. Annual History – this is an opportunity to review your Monthly History journal entries and recap the year.
- Outcomes/Tasks/Top Priorities – Outcomes are more important than activities. Each morning you begin by reviewing your tasks and top priorities and then stating the outcome you are committed to achieve that day.
- Mindset Questions – The day begins with your Morning Mindset Questions and ends with your Evening Mindset Questions.
- Note Pages – In developing this journal, at times I was using three different journals to accomplish all of the things above. By including everything above and also having pages every day for my notes, I have brought everything together into one single journal.
As of now, the Mindset Journal is available as a PDF download. For myself, I print it and have it coil bound and it has worked great. In the future it will be developed into a fully bound journal, but as more and more people use it I plan to make changes to make it as useful as possible.
If you decide to give it a try, I’m confident it will help you develop success habits that will make a difference in your life. I want to hear from you. What do you like? What would you like to see changed with the layout, or anything else? How has it impacted your life?
