10 Ways to Develop an Achiever Mindset


What makes some people achievers? What are their thought patterns which make them super successful? This is an interesting area which I would like analyze and deep dive. Here are the 10 ways achievers think and act. This can help you develop the achiever mindset.
They don’t bother about what others think – Achievers don’t worry about what others think. They are totally focused on what they want out of life and approval from others is not a necessity for them to feel good. They are totally at peace with themselves and have a strong sense of self-approval.
They are action oriented – Achievers overcome fear through intense action orientation. Every successful person takes action on their ideas. As they say talk is cheap and action is everything. Instead of dwelling too much on what may go wrong they get into action. Purposeful action cures fear.
They don’t put themselves down – Achievers know that anything worthwhile takes time and there will be inevitable failures on the path to success. They never say anything that puts them down. They always look for the seed of a positive benefit in every negative. They view setbacks as temporary and not a reflection of their inner self worth.
They don’t relate things – Achievers know that there is no relationship between two events. If they attain success in more than one thing they don’t assume that they will fail. We should all learn this as sometimes when things go too well we think that something will bound to go wrong. However this is flawed thinking which will not take us forward. Achievers never relate things and accept everything good that happens.
They are flexible and open to change – In the current world of work the one quality that is essential is the ability to remain flexible when change strikes. You might have made plans but even the best plans will fall astray when new events happen. Never get stuck on one line of thinking and be flexible to change with new input. This is a key characteristic of all top achievers.
They see themselves as self-reliant – Achievers think of themselves as CEO’s of their careers and lives. They ensure they are always thinking of themselves as owners of their companies and they take charge of their career. They are teachable and are in the cutting edge of the learning revolution.
They have Big Hairy Audacious Goals – Achievers know exactly where they are going and have big long term plans for the future. This is the key to their energy. When you have a big goal that you are after then short term setbacks will not impact you and you keep moving forward.
They welcome Feedback – No matter how good you are there are areas you can improve. Achievers know that the only way to learn about them is when they get feedback from their boss or mentors. They are totally open to feedback and take action on making changes on their areas of weakness. This is also the key to deliberate practice.
They are unshakable optimists – Achievers are optimistic about their future. As it has been well said successful people see their glass as half full. They always look for the good in every situation and have a deep sense of gratitude. If you are optimistic you will be better placed to cope with failure and disappointment. They associate with positive people and stay away from negative influences.
They are big on personal care – Achievers know that when all is said and done the only thing that can help them achieve all their goals is peak health and fitness. They are committed to a long life full of energy. They take good care of their bodies and mind. They exercise their mind and body on a regular basis. It has been found that great athletes and violinists slept more than average which is very important for peak performance.
There you have it the 10 ways you can develop the achiever mindset. All of us can become achievers and if we adopt some these keys we can go further in our lives than we imagined.
