12 Things You Understand If Your Mom Is Your Best Friend

12 Things You Understand If Your Mom Is Your Best Friend

How do you value your mom? How do you see her every day? I bet you will have sweet answers to these questions if your mom was your best friend. Yes, you will treat her like a treasure. And you must understand certain things about this relationship that no one else would.

1. She surprises you with gifts

They shop for you. They would buy you a shirt, pants, bra or a makeup kit just because they felt it would look nice on you. They are so good with you that you actually prefer them to shop for you, because really they do know so much about your body size that they will buy you what fits.

2. She advises you and you take it seriously

If they have an intuition that your new boyfriend or girlfriend is wrong and bad for you, you will take that advice seriously. You don’t want to disappoint them and do not want to hurt them so you are willing to sacrifice certain actions just for them.

3. She knows what you are thinking at certain times

She can read your mind. You never told her or give her details about anything, yet she can tell you what could be running through your thought. Even when this stuns you, she always has your interest at heart.

4. She can listen to you at any time of the day

There is nothing in the world that is more important than you. If they are busy they will free up time for you. If they are drowsy or just waking up they will still listen to you because whatever you have to say will always be important to them to listen to.

5. She is your best cheerleader

She knows how to fuel the fire in you when you want to give up. She cheers you on as much as you do the same for her too.

6. She forgives you before you even before you tell her that you are sorry

You will hurt her sometimes. And she will do the same to you. Even when all these happen and there is a divide, she forgives you without looking back your misdeeds.

7. She calls you to know how you are doing

Even when you are far away and you think you are lost, without anyone to check up on you, she will be the first person to reach out to you. You are never distant to her, she will always reach out to you and you to her.

8. She always has your back

When there are challenges and difficulties, when the whole world is against you, she will have your back and see you as right whether you are wrong.

No one understands you better than her. Before you tell her your opinion or give her thoughts on a subject, she knows what you will say. She can relate with you and can always give you a nudge if you need it.

10. She tolerates your flaws no matter what

Whether you are temperamental or too cold for comfort, she loves you for who you are. She doesn’t mind about how awkward or different you are. She just sees you as being the best person the world can give to her.

11. She always has your interest at heart

She may scream at you and be afraid about what you are about to do. What matters is that she doesn’t want anything to go wrong with you. She wants the best for you and she will always have your best interest at heart.

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!
