15 Things Truly Passionate People Do Differently

15 Things Truly Passionate People Do Differently

You’ve heard stories of the men and women who do great things. They bring a true passion and utter determination to do things that others rarely even dared to dream possible. But what makes these pioneers of innovation so great? Here’s 15 things truly passion people do differently.

1. They get excited more often.

Excitement is the fuel that can drive innovation and success. Bringing a dream to reality takes dedication and hard work. When you can find the excitement in the project and renew the excitement with each milestone, it’s easier to power through the inevitable rough patches that can derail any project.

2. They devote their lives to their dreams.

Passion needs plenty of TLC. And when you love what you do and are truly passionate about it, you’ll feed your dreams with every ounce of love and care they need to succeed. It can be a risk, but they devote their lives to accomplishing their goals.

3. They surround themselves with their works.

When you find something you love, it starts to become part of your life. Truly passionate people find ways to incorporate their work into every aspect of their life. Whether you begin spending time with other people who are helping bring your passion to life or just take your work with you everywhere you go, your dreams become part of your daily life.

4. They think positively about the future.

When you’re passionate, you believe in yourself. You have a belief that things will work out, because you believe so strongly in what you’re doing. Passionate people look forward to the future and embrace the challenges that it will bring.

5. They always have their passion on their mind.

Passion evokes a razor-like focus and drive. Whether they are driving to work, reading a book, playing with their kids, or laying at bed at night, they have their passion on their mind. They are always looking for ways to improve a process, finding solutions for their roadblocks in everyday life and applying them to their work.

6. They are willing to take risks.

No guts. No glory. Someone who’s passionate must take risks to succeed. Whether it’s putting their life savings on the line, leave a steady job to pursue their dreams, or turn down more lucrative offers with less upside, passionate people will take risks to deliver on their dreams.

7. They accept consequences.

Many people are willing to take risks, but when those backfire, many people jump ship. Truly passionate people accept their new circumstances and keep moving forward. Whether the news is good or bad, they continue on the same.

8. They make their passions a priority.

Passions without priority? Those are hobbies! They find ways to make sure they spend the time and effort to grow their passion and make their dreams come true. If you want to truly succeed, find what you’re passionate about and truly believe in and make it a priority.

9. They don’t back down.

People will doubt you. They will mock you and remind you of each and every failure. Truly passionate people won’t back down. The criticism and skepticism only fuel the fire. They never give in.

10. They have unbelievable focus.

There are distractions everywhere. Truly passionate people don’t let anything between them and their dreams. When you believe in something so strongly and dedicate your life to it, maintaining focus can be challenging. The truly passionate people succeed by limiting distractions and keeping their eye on the prize.

11. They take it to the next level.

Going through the motions is not an option. Passionate people bring it everyday. And they up their game. They work harder, practice more, spend the time to master the details, and do everything better.

12. They create a roadmap for their dreams.

When you believe in something so strongly, you can see it happen. But the difference in being a dreamer and a champion is the roadmap that gets you there. Truly passionate people leave nothing to chance, developing a plan for each step and understanding that this roadmap will evolve and shift, but ultimately lead them to the ultimate goal.

13. They inspire others.

Passion is contagious. Whether it’s the people you work with, your family, or those you meet on a daily basis, passion can rub off. If you’re having trouble finding that passion, find people who are doing great things and spend time with them. You’ll often times find that they will inspire you to follow your own dreams.

14. They overcome failure.

Failure is inevitable and comes in many forms. Rejection of a grant, dismissal of an idea, or a idea that didn’t work out. When you’re blazing new trails, obstacles will stand in the way. Passionate people learn to overcome their failures and become better because of it. The roadblocks become a source of pride and overcoming them renews their passion rather than squashing it.

15. They radiate their passion.

If you meet someone who’s truly passionate, you will know. Every part of their being seems to radiate the passion they bring each and every day.

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!
