Change your habits

All successful people have at least one thing in common: A success mindset.       
It doesn’t matter if they are a businessperson, an artist, a successful athlete, or an inventor. They all have the attitude and qualities to rise above their own personal troubles and to see things others can’t or don’t see.
Why is it that some people are more successful than their peers are? They may be average in looks and come from backgrounds with various struggles and little money. Yet they become very successful.

Your lot in life isn’t what determines what you can or cannot achieve. Having the right state of mind is a key factor to being successful in business and life in general. The way you think about succeeding can help you move ahead or keep you stagnant

.
Many times our thoughts are what hold us back from succeeding at something. We second-guess ourselves. We have doubts. We have negative thoughts or opinions. We tell ourselves that we aren’t good enough, smart enough, talented enough, or whatever fits the situation. This is all self-sabotaging behavior, which can be changed.

There are many reasons why we do this. It could be fear of the unknown. It can come from the action being outside our comfort zone. It might be we were raised to think in a certain way. Whatever the cause, mindset has a profound effect on how we succeed in life.
Anyone can develop a success mindset and harness the power it has to change your life. One of the first things you need to realize is that to be successful you have to be prepared for it in your mind.

What is mindset and why does it profoundly affect how we see things?
In this report, we will look at what mindset is and how the wrong mindset can be sabotaging your success. The reasons behind this behavior will be discussed. Finally, we will give you tips for developing a success mindset.

What is Mindset?
Everyone has heard of the law of attraction and positive thinking. Mindset is these and more. Mindset is the way we perceive success. It is the negative, fear induced thoughts that hold you back versus positive, self-supporting thoughts that help you grow.

Your mindset has three basic parts - your IQ, the behavioral patterns you’ve learned, and your abilities or skills. Your mindset is your beliefs about yourself and your most basic qualities. It’s what you believe about your intelligence, your talent, your personality, and your abilities. It’s the belief of whether you believe these traits are fixed traits that can’t be changed or if they can be learned and improved upon throughout your life.

Succeed– intelligence, skills, t etcalent,. They believe they are guaranteed success simply because of the characteristics and talents they already have. They seldom try new things, take chances, or look at things from a different perspective.

People with a fixed mindset often worry about their mindset traits and their suitability. They often feel that they have to prove things to themselves and others. Yet, they only do what they feel comfortable doing. They can achieve some success but more often than not, they reach a ceiling that keeps them from moving any further up the success chain.

Growth Mindset
People with a growth mindset believe anyone can achieve success with hard work and a believer’s attitude. They don’t believe in quitting. This allows them to strive while others run into roadblocks.
These people believe everyone is teachable. They are willing to learn what they need to in order to grow to the next level. People with a growth mindset believe they have some natural abilities in certain areas but it must be cultivated in order to take full advantage of it.

They know there is always room to improve on what they know and they’re not afraid to fail. They know trying and failing are important parts of learning and achieving. They are willing to put in the effort to succeed by taking action that moves them toward their goals.

There are two kinds of mindset: fixed mindset and growth mindset.   Fixed Mindset
People who have a fixed mindset believe they were born with everything they need to
Your mindset is made up of your skills, your intelligence, and your behavioral patterns. Some believe they are fixed and cannot be changed or enhanced.

Others see them as the starting point to growth and change. Why do You Have Self-sabotaging Behavior?
Self-sabotage is when part of your personality acts in conflict with another part of your personality. If you want to succeed, why do you sabotage it with your behavior?

Bad habits, negative self-talk, and other self-defeating behaviors can come from many sources.
Self-sabotage is often associated with poor self-esteem, low self-worth, and no self-confidence. You can suffer from this type of behavior pattern because you can’t effectively control your emotions. You react to circumstances or people in ways that prevent you from reaching your goals.

Self-sabotage is used to cope during difficult situations or times when you feel like you are not capable or worthy.
Here are four causes of self-defeating behavior:

1. Anticipating failure. You may be accustomed to situations failing or not turning out as you hoped. Dysfunctional or negative people may be pulling you down. You could be afraid to try something different because you don’t want to risk failing.

2. Bad habits. Unhealthy behaviors or thoughts like excessive drinking, smoking, uncontrolled anger, or overeating can cause you to stick with what is familiar. You tell yourself you can’t change these habits so why try.
Internalized negative thoughts. If you grew up with a parent who always saw the negative side of everything, worried about what could go wrong, or how they looked to others, you may have taken on a similar attitude without even knowing it.

1. Listening to your critical inner voice. This voice is formed from experiences early in our life. You internalize the attitudes of others directed toward you. Because others may have seen you as lazy, you may have grown up feeling useless.

Your self-sabotaging inner voice might tell you not to try. For example, “Why bother? You’ll never succeed anyway.” Self-sabotage is often an unconscious thought or behavior that is in direct conflict with our desire to succeed.

Avoid Self-Sabotage  now that you know why you are sabotaging your success, you need to learn how to avoid these thoughts and behaviors to achieve the success you desire. To do this you need to be aware of when you are in this state.

Before You travel check it out

 Are you planning a vacation out of the United States? You will need a passport.  Pay attention to make sure your passport is ready.                                                                             Go to your favorite pharmacy and have them take Passport photos. Once you have the photos, go to the Post Office to obtain  an application.                                

You will have to provide proof of identity and proof of citizenship at this time.              Be sure to allow about three weeks for processing                                                               Make 2 Xerox copies of your passport before your trip. Take 1 copy with you and leave the other copy with a family member or trusted friend.                                                                                             Keep the copy stored in your baggage, or as suggested, the copy be scanned into your phone, Having this Digital copy will help speed up the replacement process.                          
*Suppose you already have a passport? Be sure to check when it was issued.                      It may  need to
be reissued. Follow the procedure   above to do this. Once again, allow three weeks for  processing.

* Has your name changed since your passport was issued?  You need to take a valid passport,
 a copy of your marriage certificate, or divorce documents, or a court order to have your passport reissued.                                      
*Has your passport been lost or stolen? You will need a statement regarding your stolen passport.                                                  
                                        You will need to file DS-11 passport application. You will also have to provide
proof of identity and citizenship. This also requires a recent passport photograph. Report it as soon as possible.
                                                     Make an appointment with the local US Embassy if you are in a foreign country.  Most times  a temporary replacement  is issued in  2 days. You will need it for any border crossings or for identification.                                                                   You will have to complete a declaration that your passport has been lost or stolen   lf you happen to find it, you cannot  travel on it.  Once it is reported stolen, you have to get a replacement.                            
You must be age eighteen, or older. The  requirements
for a first time passport remain the same.                          
*If you are traveling with a minor child, they must use their own passport (even if they are a newborn)
 when traveling internationally by air.                     
Once they reach eighteen they must present
the most recent passport and a recent photograph. If the previous passport was issued
more than fifteen years ago, it must be reissued,                                   
When you apply for a passport, consider ordering a passport card ($30) at the same time.                                            
It is not valid for international travel, but could simplify getting a replacement passport.                                               
*A final note to mention is that if you wanted to receive an expedited passport, it can be processed
 for an additional fee.                              
Enjoy your vacation.
