8 Reasons Why Coffee Drinkers Are More Likely To Succeed

8 Reasons Why Coffee Drinkers Are More Likely To Succeed

Most times what you need to get plugged into a project is that shot of caffeine. Coffee does it for me, from the smell to the flow into the cup and that intense swallow. It gets me on the drive. While others are worried about the intensity, for me it’s perfect. I get energy only coffee can provide. I can’t help but remind the worriers of the wonders coffee does to their chances for success. Read this article if you’re hesitant about coffee, and consider all the benefits you stand to gain.

Here is a list of beneficial effects that help coffee drinkers succeed.

1. They are healthier

Whether it is Alzheimer, diabetes, or cardiovascular diseases, coffee has a power against different diseases. People who drink coffee live longer and have lower health risks of developing diseases like Parkinson’s.

2. They are smarter

It is not just about keeping you awake. There are other reasons that you should drink coffee. It also makes you smarter. The caffeine present in the coffee you drink blocks the adenosine in the brain. Adenosine is an inhibitory transmitter. When this adenosine is blocked you have a higher energy level and you can work at a higher level.

3. They are more physical

All that fat in your body can be burned by coffee. If you’re doubtful, keep in mind that caffeine is in most commercial fat burning supplements. Caffeine works against fat because it raises metabolism, thus increasing the oxidation of fatty acids. It also mobilizes fatty acids from fat tissues. Caffeine can be helpful in increasing your physical performance.

4. They are happier

People who take caffeine have fewer bouts of depression. By drinking several cups of coffee, you keep your spirits high and protect you from depression or gloom. The anti-oxidants in coffee may be responsible for keeping your mood up and making you more exciting and positive.

5. They live longer

Whether you like it or not, this is confirmed by science. What do you have to say against a substance that lowers the risk of heart diseases, makes you more charged, and positive? Coffee has a lot of other compounds beyond caffeine. Some of the benefits of these compounds have not even been confirmed by science yet. Still, most of these compounds are anti-oxidants that protect your bodies from oxidation. These oxidants are powerful enough to damage molecules in the body.

6. They are go-getters

There is an attitude that comes with taking coffee. You want to get the job done. Coffee powers you to start your day early and achieve something. Successful people take coffee and fire up while others are still rolling in bed and still trying to adapt to being awake. Coffee keeps you aware of your environment and gets you started early on time.

7. They are alive and more interesting to be with

Coffee drinkers are great team players and fun to be with. At the end of the day, it is not about getting the job done. It is also making it fun and having the acceptance of a fun team who considers you likable. With coffee, you are fired up and alive to make your project more energetic and more interesting.

8. They make money

This is according to a study that is based on certain workers in the United Kingdom. When you think of it, it makes a lot of sense. Why wouldn’t coffee drinkers make money when they are more resilient, wake up earlier, and are more active during the day? Coffee drinkers are more fired up for success. They live the experience from every cup of coffee as they want to get the job done.

I’m drinking a cup of coffee now as I write this because I am a firm believer in certain things I write. So, here is my cup of coffee raised to every coffee drinker out there. There are more important reasons to drink coffee, rather than not drink it. And if it is for success, then it is worth it!

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!
