Sky’s the limit mindset starts by acknowledging where you are and taking some time to truly feel appreciation for it.
Five things you need in order to have and maintain a sky’s-the-limit mindset are:
1. Want what you have now.
The best place to start is exactly where you are. Yes, indeed you need goals and aspirations to be truly successful.
2. Own it.
Own the responsibility where you are right now. Know that this moment, this place is 100 percent the results of the choices you have made.
3. Use it.
Own where you are, then use that to fuel your inner fire for bigger thinking. When you want to quit that jog early, sleep in or skip a phone call, no one is going to berate you for it. You’ll start to say no to the voices in your head that say you can’t do something. You’ll start to argue with those doubts and fears and use them to fuel you onward, instead of hold you back.
4. Forget ABC, you need ABH.
If you really want big success, change that mantra to ABH — always be helping. As Zig Ziglar said, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” Creating value changes the way you think and that changes the way you live your life.
5. Replace the word problem
When you stop using the word problem something amazing happens. Every obstacle becomes an opportunity. You really can find the good in every situation presented to you.
Find the value, and you’ll be embracing sky’s-the-limit thinking.
