Positive Mindset


Today I am going to talk about a subject that is very often, overlooked, dismissed or ignored, when it comes to making a success of yourself online, or indeed in any situation.

That subject is all about having a positive or self belief mind set.

At first, you might be thinking to yourself ‘What the heck has that got to do with earning money online?’ Well actually a lot more than you’d think. It is often an area that is dismissed and ignored, because the link is not obviously apparent. Some people also think it’s a bit new age or airy fairy.

The truth of the matter is, if you speak to 99.9% of people who are successful in their work and life, they will all tell you the importance of having a positive mind set, positive self talk and believing you are capable. There are 100’s of books dedicated to it, online courses, video training, off line courses , mentoring programs, the positive thinking niche is booming business!

And for a very good reason – it works!

Having a positive mind set is one of the core areas in the self development / self improvement niche, which is also booming business, and if you are serious about making it online, it really is an area that you need to invest some time and pay attention!

I had unsuccessfully tried to make money online, for several years. The turning point for me was when I started investing a bit of time and work on myself and my attitude. I had always been one of those people who dismissed ‘positive thinking’ but over time it kept coming up on my radar. So I decided to look into it a bit. I read a book called the ‘Success Principles – How to get from where you are to where you want to be’ and it was a real eye opener for me. It is an excellent book for showing why a positive mind set is crucial in achieving the goals you set yourself.  I then started reading other books and listening to audio books. I still do it now on a daily basis. It has actually become a bit of an addiction!  I very much recommend you invest in yourself and read this book. It has recently been updated too so it is now very relevant for the digital age. If you do one thing today, get this book! Below I have provided some titles of other great books that I really recommend you read, take a look.

Income Objective is all about providing you with everything you need to make a success of making money online. Having a positive mindset is one of the things you need, and that ability to invest in yourself and your own development.

Having a positive mind set can be achieved in many different ways, I will be creating posts on a regular basis that will address them. They will be categorized under ‘Optimizing Success’ so be sure to keep your eyes peeled and take the time to improve on yourself.

If you need some extra encouragement, check out the community at Wealthy Affiliate that I find so beneficial, or for a bit of fun take this quiz to see what might be preventing you be as successful as you’d like online. Either way definitely check out these  book recommendations, there is some real gold contained with in them!

  1. Positive thinking is without question one of the ingredient for success. Your reminder to popular niches is a nice one to attract people’s attention.
    The topic is huge and definitely deserves regular posts. Looking forward to read them in due time.
    Does the title “Getting in the Right Headspace” have some philosophical connection with Positive Thinking?

    • Hi Monty, Thanks for reading and taking the comment.To answer your question, yes I believe it does. To me, ‘being in the right head space’ means being in a positive place where your thoughts and beliefs are working with you and enabling you to move forward and achieve your goals. It also allows you to deal with obstacles in a pragmatic way. Some people exist in this space naturally, but for a lot of people it is a conscious decision we have to make and work towards. Positive thinking is part of getting into this mindset, and again for most people it is something we have to consciously be aware of and work towards. What are your thoughts?

    I was in a similar situation where I didn’t put enough emphasis on positive thinking. It really helps staying positive when running an online business. Wealthy Affiliate is a great source for building upon a positive mindset because there is such a great community to learn from.

  3. Hey Vic,

    This is completely true. I’ve been online for a few years now but have only managed to make upwards of $300 in a single month.

    My mindset wasn’t in the right place for a long time. I never had any goals and I never took the time to do personal development.

    And it showed in my results.

    Taking 20-30 mins a day to do some personal development is needed to run a successful business online or offline. It’s a work-out for your soul.

    • Thanks John, glad you liked the post, yes self development really is a workout for the soul! Lots of people say they just don’t have the time to dedicate to this area, but I really feel it should be prioritized over a lot of other things. I am attending a meditation weekend, this weekend as part of my on going develop – can’t wait!
