These are the mindset methods to help you can build a growth mindset and achieve your dream goals more effectively.
Have you ever experienced the feelings that your goal always goes around in your mind? Whenever you go to work, have meals, workout, or even in your dream it also appears?
If it really happens to you, it means that your goal is becoming a part of your life. And your mind, your body wants you to admit it and work harder to achieve it.
And for me, whatever my goal is, if it appears in my mind all the time, I understand that this goal needs to be achieved.
However, there is a reality that, we normally have the goals that we feel over our ability to achieve at the beginning.
And somehow, we just “hope” that the goal can happen on a nice day, but deep in our souls, we never think that it can happen to us.
Because we feel like it is too great to be true.
And if you start at the bottom point, where you don’t have the family that can support you, don’t have knowledge, skills, and relationships that you think you need to have to make your goal come true, it makes the belief that this goal can really happen become smaller in you.
I totally understand this feeling, because I used to face it many years ago when I start my journey to be a content creator.
My content creator game started in my mind in 2017. However,
At that time, I didn’t know anything about digital marketing, video content, CPM, content creation process,…
But what I know is I want to learn all of them, and it must be from the top education in the world to help me have the best understanding about being a great content creator who can share the most valuable content for free to everyone by using the Internet.
This goal is really too ambitious for a boy who doesn’t know anything about digital content creation until 22 years old and doesn’t speak English as well.
But after I set this goal for myself, until now, this is 4 years.
And I finally graduated with my master’s of “Global Media and Communication” from the University of Melbourne, the №1 University in Australia, and the top 32 of the world.
Now, finally, I can create fluently digital content, from writing to video format, from optimized SEO to optimized Ads,…
For me, to be understood and do a good job in digital marketing, especially social media marketing in just 4 years is incredible, and be graduated from one of the best universities all over the world is my dream goal come true.
To achieve this goal, I went through a lot of tough times when I mistrust myself if I am good enough to learn in this field from the top University and can turn it into my dream career or not.
So I totally understand if you are having a great goal that you always dream about but also feel scared when you feel you are not good enough to get it.
And let be honest, to achieve whatever your goal is, the most important thing that I figure out to do is change “the mindset”.
Why is your growth mindset really important?
Because when you have the right mindset and the appropriate number of time, you can achieve whatever you desire to have in life.
Personally, these are 3 sentences that I addicted to using during the last 4 years when the first time I put my goal to be graduated from the top global university about the media and communication field.
I need to admit that these 3 sentences look very simple but when you remind it daily, as I do, in the morning just after waking up and in the evening before I go to bed, every single day.
It likes the hypnotism to change my mind and the way how I approach my goal rapidly that I never imagine that these simple sentences can create that big impact on my mind.
And I also have a strong belief that if you try to apply these sentences to your mind daily, you will see the massive impact on the way you think about your goals and help you to find better ways to approach them.
1. Understand mindset methods:
“You can do it. You just use 10% of your mental ability. Let boost it up”
This is the first sentence that I always remind myself firstly every day when I wake up.
Because I want both my conscious and unconscious mind to get this signal every day. So I can try to do more things to achieve my dream goals without the concern that maybe my brain has negative impacts because I use it too much.
Following the research of Harvard University, our brain has the unlimited ability and it can grow to be faster and work better when we train it daily.
Therefore, when trying to approach the tough goal, instead of thinking that this goal is too hard to achieve or impossible, let train your brain to start to work on it.
For me, I tell myself that I just use 10% of my brain as a way to encourage myself daily that I still haven’t fully discovered all my abilities to achieve my goal yet.
And in the old belief, it said that we just can use 10% of brain ability. However, from the recent declaration from the Harvard doctor study, there is no scientific evidence that our brain is used in 10%, it can be higher or lower, depending on the person.
But there is a reality that the brain’s ability is unlimited and if we use the right way to grow and develop it, we can make its capability to be better.
So instead of suspect about your brain ability, let talk to yourself “You can do it. You just use 10% of your mental ability. Let boost it up”, and spend the time to focus on achieving your goal instead.
2. Understand mindset methods:
“Let make all the tasks today done. That’s it!”
Let be honest together. So many times I skipped my schedule because of laziness and feel uncomfortable working on it.
But the reality is if you want to achieve the big goal, like for me to study at the top University about the major I want to work later as my career, it all required us to put a lot of hard works into it. And laziness and uncomfortable can’t help you to achieve this kind of big goal.
As there are a hundred times I did pre-English tests, many self-education hours to prepare for interviews, and a lot of unnamed tasks I did for nearly a year to achieve this goal.
And when you stay in today to work on the things that can take you years to achieve the goal, the feeling of vague and tired is unavoidable, but you need to learn to get over all of these feelings.
And to stop worrying about the uncertain things that can happen in the future, let choose to live in the present. It means that every single day let always remind yourself that
“Let make all the tasks today done. That’s it!”.
This is one of the best mindset methods that helped me to just focus on the tasks I have on this day, and stop to think about the uncertain future.
Then, I feel enjoy the moments when I finish a day, look back in my journal, and recognize that all the tasks I need to do in a day be completed.
It creates fulfill feelings in my mind; as fuel for my inner engine to continue to run substantially toward my big goal.
However, completing all the goals on time is a big issue that many people can’t control. If you want to know more about the way you can save your time and make it more effective. Let check this blog “4 Simple Ways You Can Do Immediately To Protect Your Time”.
3. Understand mindset methods:
“Imagine, what it will look like when you achieve your goal?”
Let give yourself a maximum of 10 minutes a day to think about the future of complement.
Think about the positive impacts that will happen in your life when you can achieve your goal. Don’t focus on how hard it is to get the goal, just focus on the great and positive things that you can get.
This is the mindset method that helps me to refuel my energy when studying English and prepare the documents and certifications to get the entrance requirement for my master’s degree in “Global Media and Communication” at this University.
I still remember these days, I spend around 10 hours a day just learning English and preparing the documents, every single day for roughly a year. And if I said I enjoy it, not exhausted, it means I’m telling a lie.
The reality is very harsh when you need to spend so many hours doing tasks daily for the goal that you just can see the result after a year. And what I did during this time to feel more positive is think about what it will look like when I achieve this goal.
Normally, I spend around 10 minutes a day thinking about it.
Think about my opportunity to learn from the top educational environment in the world, think about the chance to meet and greet with a lot of interested people; and learn from the top experts in my field that help my dream to be a great content creator become true.
Although it is all about imagination at this time, it is super important for me because it gives me a lot of energy to continue my journey to achieve this goal.
As William Arthur Ward used to say:
If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.
So whatever your goal is, just try to imagine how it looks like when you get it. And always keep your mind to be positive about the ability you can achieve your goal. This will be the decisive factor for your goal to come true.
A final thought about mindset methods
These three sentences I shared with you about the mindset methods are my great sources of input that I use daily to help me keep that positive vibes on my ambitious goals.
And it doesn’t matter how big your goal be if you can have the right mindset and a strong belief in yourself about it. Whatever you can dream of, you can get it.
The sentences I shared with you that can be used as a panacea for the mindset daily, to help you build the bigger and stronger belief from inside to chase your ambitious goals which can take you years to complete.
A strong mindset will be your fuel to help you run on this marathon journey.
Best wishes to you and hope that these mindset methods will help you to achieve your dream faster and make you live a better life.
