9 Amazing Things Will Happen When You Start To Enjoy Being Alone

9 Amazing Things Will Happen When You Start To Enjoy Being Alone

People don’t appreciate being alone enough. And thus they give their power to others. I think it all stems from that being alone is negative and anti-social. But in this post you will find interesting reasons for you to be alone and the benefits that come along with it. Here are the amazing things that will start happening to you when you start enjoying the time you are spending alone.

1. You will start loving yourself more

Someone used to tell me being alone made them a best friend to themselves. I thought he was kidding. But being alone builds a relationship with your person. It makes you understand yourself better and it makes you appreciate who you are.

2. You will figure things out

Life is full of challenges and distractions. You can’t really understand where things are going when there is so much noise in the background. To get the clearer picture and see things from a more personal perspective you have to give yourself some time with yourself.

3. You will be happier

Happiness is more of a state of mind rather than a destination. People do not know this and they chase happiness and joy all of their lives. Chasing something you cannot attain can be empty and false. Why go after what is vain when all you need is some self-esteem and some clearer perspective. When you are alone, you can cherish what is rather than what was or what will be.

4. You will recharge your energy

There is so much we can take when we are with others. But when you are alone you can be with yourself and get rid of all stress and burdens. You can lighten up and breathe out all the negative energy. This gives room for some positive energy and some clearer directions. And of course you will make some better decisions based on this.

5. You will discover who you are

What are your emotions like? What do you want to be? Who do you want to be with? You really do not see these things from a distance. But when you can get in touch with your feelings when you are alone, you can tell yourself what you want and what you don’t want.

6. You will become more productive

Solitude gives some air of planning and positivity. You figure things out and the directions you want to take. You make plans and have an air of positive energy. You are glad and you find a basis to pursue those innermost desires.

7. You will reflect

We all have a point of becoming, which is where we are coming from and where we are heading to. We pursue goals based on what we can picture and make out of them. Solitude gives us the time and space to reflect and look back at those things that have happened to us and how we can make things better. Being alone gives us the energy to deal with our feelings and what we are.

8. You will enjoy your relationships even more.

You cannot love others when you do not love yourself. Whether you want it or not, happiness starts with appreciating yourself and discovering who you are. You may have been oblivious to certain facts when you enjoyed relationships with others, but being alone with yourself offers you the opportunity to be with yourself and to appreciate what every relationship means to you.

9. You will become more independent

You start finding out that your joy is not external, but totally dependent on you and what you make out of it. You can make those strategic decisions and be more optimistic about the future because solitude gives you a voice and you don’t care what others think about you but what you think about yourself.

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!
