13 Things Only People Who Feel Deeply Can Understand

13 Things Only People Who Feel Deeply Can Understand

It is not unusual to have strong emotions and be deeply connected to the world around you. This is a strength that the world could use more of. Deeply connected people are highly sensitive and there is no reason to be awkward about this sort of emotion. Rather than fight it, it’s best to understand how these people work.

“Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears.”
― Edgar Allan Poe

1. They can express themselves with a good cry

Their hurt and disappointment are not expressed in words but in a good cry. They may be more human than others when it comes to heartbreak or grief.

2. They are deeply connected with the arts

They see art from a deep and touching perspective. Whether in a song, a movie, or a book, they can relate with the depth of emotion and react accordingly. They tend to view life from a multidimensional angle and art can be another medium which connects them to the beauty and intrigues of the world.

3. They want to share a piece of themselves

Because they are sensitive to the existence of the world around them, they love to share their own interpretations of events through their chosen medium. This could be through photography, paintings, music, or writing.

4. They hate to see the hate in the world

They detest violence. They simply can’t stand to see this horrifying part of life. They aren’t just in tune with terror, they feel deeply that it isn’t right. This doesn’t mean that they ignore current events, but they can only take so much at a time.

5. They are deeply connected to their environment

They are aware of their environment and see things beyond face value. They have a very active intuition and sense things before they happen.

6. They can relate to what others are going through

They have an empathetic feeling towards others. They have a deep understanding of what someone else is going through as if it were happening to them.

7. They are comfortable with being alone

They appreciate solitude and need this time to deeply reflect upon their feelings and any actions they are about to take. This may make them appear to be closed off at times, but it is time they need to sort through their emotions.

8. They don’t want to hurt others

They are very mindful of the things they say or do to others. This often translates into a desire to make life easier for others — they don’t mind standing up so that a pregnant lady can take a seat on the bus.

9. They can get the best out of others

Because they want to help others and want the best for them, they can work in team settings and provide a solid platform for every other person to excel.

10. They are deep thinkers

They are thinking about so much all at once. They keep their minds engaged and active. They focus on the details in order to find a solution or a way out of problems.

11. They dread disputes

They don’t want to be on wrong end of things. Neither do they want to be the target of spite. They seriously want to avoid arguments or situations that put their nerves on edge.

12. They don’t want to be hurt

This characteristic may cause them to avoid closeness with some people. They feel that by getting close to certain people, their vulnerabilities will be exposed.

13. They are moved to help others

They are drawn to helping the weak and vulnerable. They know that life can be unfair, but they want to do what they can to balance that out. That is why they are willing to defend and support those who are suffering.

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

What do you think it takes to achieve your goals? Hard work? Lots of actions? While these are paramount to becoming successful in reaching our goals, neither of these are possible without a positive mindset.

As humans, we naturally tend to lean towards a negative outlook when it comes to our hopes and dreams. We are prone to believing that we have limitations either from within ourselves or from external forces keeping us from truly getting to where we want to be in life. Our tendency to think that we’ll “believe it when we see it” suggests that our mindsets are focused on our goals not really being attainable until they’ve been achieved. The problem with this is that this common mindset fuels our limiting beliefs and shows a lack of faith in ourselves.

The Success Mindset

Success in achieving our goals comes down to a ‘success mindset’. Successful mindsets are those focused on victory, based on positive mental attitudes, empowering inclinations and good habits. Acquiring a success mindset is the sure-fire way to dramatically increase your chance to achieve your goals.

The idea that achieving our goals comes down to our habits and actions is actually a typical type of mindset that misses a crucial point; that our mindset is, in fact, the determiner of our energy and what actions we take. A negative mindset will tend to create negative actions and similarly if we have a mindset that will only set into action once we see ‘proof’ that our goals are achievable, then the road will be much longer and arduous. This is why, instead of thinking “I’ll believe it when I see it”, a success mindset will think “I’ll see it when I believe it.”

The Placebo Effect and What It Shows Us About The Power of Mindset

The placebo effect is a perfect example of how mindset really can be powerful. In scientific trials, a group of participants were told they received medication that will heal an ailment but were actually given a sugar pill that does nothing (the placebo). Yet after the trial the participants believed it’s had a positive effect – sometimes even cured their ailment even though nothing has changed. This is the power of mindset.

How do we apply this to our goals? Well, when we set goals and dreams how often do we really believe they’ll come to fruition? Have absolute faith that they can be achieved? Have a complete unwavering expectation? Most of us don’t because we hold on to negative mindsets and limiting beliefs about ourselves that stop us from fully believing we are capable or that it’s at all possible. We tend to listen to the opinions of others despite them misaligning with our own or bow to societal pressures that make us believe we should think and act a certain way. There are many reasons why we possess these types of mindsets but a success mindset can be achieved.

How To Create a Success Mindset

People with success mindsets have a particular way of perceiving things. They have positive outlooks and are able to put faith fully in their ability to succeed. With that in mind, here are a few ways that can turn a negative mindset into a successful one.

1. A Success Mindset Comes From a Growth Mindset

How does a mindset even manifest itself? It comes from the way you talk to yourself in the privacy of your own head. Realising this will go a long way towards noticing how you speak to yourself and others around you. If it’s mainly negative language you use when you talk about your goals and aspirations then this is an example of a fixed mindset.

A negative mindset brings with it a huge number of limiting beliefs. It creates a fixed mindset – one that can’t see beyond it’s own limitations. A growth mindset sees these limitations and looks beyond them – it finds ways to overcome obstacles and believes that this will result in success. When you think of your goal, a fixed mindset may think “what if I fail?” A growth mindset would look at the same goal and think “failures happen but that doesn’t mean I won’t be successful.”

There’s a lot of power in changing your perspective.

2. Look For The Successes

It’s really important to get your mind focused on positive aspects of your goal. Finding inspiration through others can be really uplifting and keep you on track with developing your success mindset; reinforcing your belief that your dreams can be achieved. Find people that you can talk with about how they achieved their goals and seek out and surround yourself with positive people. This is crucial if you’re learning to develop a positive mindset.

3. Eliminate Negativity

You can come up against a lot of negativity sometimes either through other people or within yourself. Understanding that other people’s negative opinions are created through their own fears and limiting beliefs will go a long way in sustaining your success mindset. But for a lot of us, negative chatter can come from within and these usually manifest as negative words such as can’t, won’t, shouldn’t. Sometimes, when we think of how we’re going to achieve our goals, statements in our minds come out as negative absolutes: ‘It never works out for me’ or ‘I always fail.’

When you notice these coming up you need to turn them around with ‘It always works out for me!’ and ‘I never fail!’ The trick is to believe it no matter what’s happened in the past. Remember that every new day is a clean slate and for you to adjust your mindset.

4. Create a Vision

Envisioning your end goal and seeing it in your mind is an important trait of a success mindset. Allowing ourselves to imagine our success creates a powerful excitement that shouldn’t be underestimated. When our brain becomes excited at the thought of achieving our goals, we become more committed, work harder towards achieving it and more likely to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

If this involves creating a vision board that you can look at to remind yourself every day then go for it. Small techniques like this go a long way in sustaining your success mindset and shouldn’t be dismissed.

An Inspirational Story…

For centuries experts said that running a mile in under 4 minutes was humanly impossible. On the 6th May 1954, Rodger Bannister did just that. As part of his training, Bannister relentlessly visualised the achievement, believing he could accomplish what everyone said wasn’t possible…and he did it.

What’s more amazing is that, as soon as Bannister achieved the 4-minute mile, more and more people also achieved it. How was this possible after so many years of no one achieving it? Because in people’s minds it was suddenly possible – once people knew that it was achievable it created a mindset of success and now, after over fifty years since Bannister did the ‘impossible’, his record has been lowered by 17 seconds – the power of the success mindset!
