Failure is one thing we all fear while on our individual success journeys. One thing that can make you fail when you are working hard to succeed is the mental habit of expecting failure at every junction. Your mind controls your results so you must work or your mindset to get the right results from your hard works.
Here, we will help you learn how to stop expecting to fail when working on any project.
1. Change your mindset
Your mindset is the sole determinant of what you achieve and what you fail to achieve in life. You can be working hard for success and be expecting to fail. Success most times is not determined by the efforts you put in, but by what your mind expects in the end.
This is the law of attraction. This law is so powerful that your thoughts, believes and expectations can override every effort and work you put in to succeed. Before you can taste any good success in whatever you are working hard to achieve, you must first work on your mindset. No one has ever succeeded with a negative mindset. If you believe you will fail, no matter how hard you work, you will definitely fail. It works like magic and affects every aspect of your life.
2. Practice mindful meditation
This may not be easy at first, but with time and practice, you can overcome the stream of negative thoughts and expectations that bedevil your mind with mindful meditation. One mental exercise that can help you master your thoughts and change your mindset is mindful meditation.
Mindful meditation allows you to concentrate on your breath and thoughts with the aim of becoming more grounded. Mindful meditation teaches you to master your thoughts enough to stop negative thoughts and plant positive thoughts in their place. Mindful meditation has a powerful effect on the mind. It has the power to release a powerful sense of wellbeing and self-satisfaction.
3. Practice Daily Positive Affirmations
One other great tool you can use to stop negative expectations is to repeatedly tell yourself you are good enough for success. You can make a list of all the successes and wins you had recorded in the past and use them to build a list of positive affirmations about your life. Your affirmations can read like any of these, ” I’m wired for success”, “I’m too prepared and qualified to fail”, etc.
You can form the habit of repeating these things in your subconscious mind while you work. The more you tell yourself these truth about your life, the more they become a part of your mind and beliefs. Consistent practice is the key to unlocking a stream of positive thinking to strengthen your positive expectations and bring them to pass.
4. Practice Visualization
Now is the time to unleash the powers of your positive imagination. You can’t be imagining successes and victories all the time without succeeding. Find time to engage your mind on a mental journey to the land of unlimited possibilities. Before you leave home in the morning, think about what you want to achieve. Whatever you can conceive in your mind is what you can achieve.
5. Find Daily Motivation
The mind is like the muscle, it only grows when you feed and train it. Before you leave home every morning, make sure you did something positive to feed your mind with. You can read a success story of someone you admire. You can talk to someone who understands your dreams and have been to where you want to be. This is why a mentor is always important. Talk to your mentor for some doses of success nuggets. The more you feed your mind with positive things, the harder it becomes for you to expect failure or fail in life.
Practice these positive habits and you will never expect failure again in your life. Once you win the war against negative thoughts and negative expectations, you have won the war against failure.
