Pos­i­tive men­tal­ity a key to suc­cess

Sunday News (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page -

H S P IUMAN men­tal­ity is what dif­fer­en­ti­ates be­tween suc­cess­ful and un­suc­cess­ful peo­ple. The way we per­ceive things around us and the world marks our des­tiny. Peo­ple should de­velop a pos­i­tive men­tal­ity in all the sit­u­a­tions they might face, whether good or bad. In an eco­nom­i­cally un­sta­ble world where jobs are scarce, some de­velop a mind­set of fear, un­cer­tainty, worry and lack of hope. In a world where death is tire­lessly snatch­ing bread­win­ners and loved ones, young peo­ple tend to lose hope and op­er­ate in de­spair. How­ever, a pos­i­tive men­tal­ity is able to pierce through the gloomy sit­u­a­tion. Any sit­u­a­tion is as bad as we per­ceive it.

UCCESS will never be pre­sented to us on a sil­ver plat­ter, hard­ships are guar­an­teed. Thus, young peo­ple should dis­dain from the de­sire to gain easy suc­cess. Some tend to ex­cuse them­selves from that be­cause they don’t come from a rich back­ground there­fore they think they are jus­ti­fied to be un­suc­cess­ful. Some be­lieve that be­cause they did not get the priv­i­lege of good ed­u­ca­tion thus they do not qual­ify to be suc­cess­ful. There are so many rea­sons that we can gather so as to ex­cuse our­selves from climb­ing the moun­tain of suc­cess how­ever, it’s all about our men­tal­ity.

OSITIVE think­ing will break the bar­ri­ers of fear and low self-es­teem; it will equip young peo­ple to strongly be­lieve they can rise up and make a dif­fer­ence in the world. One who has a pos­i­tive men­tal­ity is en­er­gised to face any chal­lenges en­coun­tered with op­ti­mism. A pos­i­tive mind is the an­chor of suc­cess. No mat­ter how un­priv­i­leged or un­qual­i­fied you think you are but be­liev­ing in your­self will help you to see beyond that thus, work­ing hard to at­tain your de­sires.

T is im­por­tant for young peo­ple to be mind­ful that the world will not al­ways present a vivid op­por­tu­nity to snatch suc­cess; some­times the op­por­tu­nity to be suc­cess­ful will be hid­den in noth­ing­ness. The econ­omy (at the mo­ment), might not be in favour of your en­tre­pre­neur­ial busi­ness plan, your salary might not be sup­port­ive for you to buy a house and you might not be em­ployed thus, mak­ing it hard to reach to your goals. Nev­er­the­less, a pos­i­tive men­tal­ity will strengthen young peo­ple to make a move or a leap out of noth­ing. That is what sep­a­rates suc­cess­ful and un­suc­cess­ful peo­ple. Sit­u­a­tions around us may make it hard for us to be suc­cess­ful, how­ever, it is not our sit­u­a­tions that pre­clude us from suc­cess but our men­tal­ity.

Good things are re­served for those who are will­ing to go an ex­tra mile and out of their com­fort zones in search of suc­cess. We may have the same tal­ents, qual­i­fi­ca­tions and abil­i­ties but our men­tal­ity will set us apart. Go an ex­tra mile and cul­ti­vate a pos­i­tive men­tal­ity in all you do and you will achieve pos­i­tive re­sults.
