Success, like anything, begins in the mind. How you think determines your action or lack of it. Wealthy people have a different frame of mind that ordinary people don't have. For one thing, they don't fear failure. They see possibilities and aren't limited by circumstances. It's not that wealthy people are more gifted above the normal man or woman. A good majority who have made it in this world dropped out of college to pursue their visions. They didn't let the status quo dictate the definition of success. They went about visualizing, then working toward a dream.

If you have a desire to succeed, you need to train your mind to think success, rather than failure. You need to recognize possibilities as they present themselves. Training your mind is not easy to do as you, like everyone else, seek for pleasurable activities. We all have the idea that we should get something for nothing, or, at best, work as little as possible to get the most. Looking for an easy way to do what we desire is built into us. It's natural, but it won't help increase wealth.

The first step to financial security requires the right state of mind. All of us tend to look at what we lack and what we want. Circumstances don't limit success. He sees what he can achieve. He focuses on a possible outcome if he employs the right tools and efforts to realize his goals. Success comes from effort. It requires making sacrifices. Rather than watching hockey and football, the successful man focusses on achievement. He does something every day to move him toward his objective. He employs rules that guarantee success, laws which are lacking in most people.

Setting a Worthwhile Goal: Anyone who has achieved wealth will tell you that if you don't have a goal, you're only drifting through life. You can't get what you want if you don't have a plan to reach it. You need to know what steps to take before you can make your first step forward. For many, goal setting seems a chore, and it is if you don't have a clue what you want from life. You need to define what it is you want; then you can create a plan to get you there.

Keep a Possibility Mindset: Prosperous people are always positive about their outcomes. They don't let setbacks rob them of their dreams. Every setback offers possibilities. They stay motivated, no matter how difficult their lives may become. Study the lives of men like Abraham Lincoln and Yoshiro Honda, both of which met several setbacks before they succeeded. They did not dwell on failure.

Do What You Love: No one can ever succeed if they find their work a drudgery. Most people work only to bring in a paycheck, but they despise their jobs. It's the reason why a majority of successful people dropped out of the education system. They did not enjoy the limitations imposed on them. They felt they could do better and use their time more wisely, doing something they enjoyed.

Belief in the Outcome: Without it, you'll achieve limited success. It's the plugging away in the face of opposition that wins the day. If you believe in what you are doing, failure is a minor inconvenience. It's a firm, unshakeable belief that you can accomplish that brings the outcome. Failure is not an option. Don't give up because things look at their worst. It's that final hurdle that brings victory. It's also called perseverance.

Associate with the Right People: Successful people associate with like-minded people. They seek out those who can help them achieve their goals. They tend to stay away from negative people who try to belittle their plans as unworkable. The world is full of those who limit their future with excuses, doubts, and fears. If they can't achieve, you can't either. Listening to them can bring you down to their level of thinking.

Taking a Deserved Time Out: Contrary to what you may believe, successful people are not workaholics. They take breaks on occasion, even if it means taking a day off from work. They connect with their families to enjoy the fruits of their labor. The ability to rest is one way to refresh both body and soul. A real workaholic seldom finds happiness in what he does as he's too busy seven days a week. Everyone needs to take a break to recharge and readjust mental resources. It also helps to focus on what's essential for spiritual life.
