10 Mindsets Of Organized People Which Make Them Successful

10 Mindsets Of Organized People Which Make Them Successful

Being organized is not something that people inherit: it is more to do with how well you organize your daily routine and tasks to make sure that everything falls into place. All the successful people that you see around you did not achieve success overnight. Nor was success simply handed to them. They worked for the success, and the first step towards success is good organization.

Anyone can be organized and successful. All that is required is the mindset to do things in a proper manner. Here are the 10 mindsets of organized people that lead them towards the epitome of success:

1. They find the tools they need to assist them

We all know how tedious life can be, and sometimes we feel like we are in a rut! However, organized people do something about that and make sure that the rut that they are faced with is cleared. And they do this with helpful tools that are all around us only if we stop for a second and pay attention. Your tablet, smartphone, and smartwatch are all useful technological tools that you can use to plan, organize, and therefore make your lives a whole lot easier and productive.

2. They know what their priorities are, and give them their due importance

Organized people know how to handle their priorities effectively, no matter how hectic their day is. Making a to-do list on a daily basis can be a highly productive effort in such cases. They know what tasks are urgent and thus need to be handled first and foremost.

3. They only worry about relevant things

We all know how our minds are occupied with so many things on a daily basis. However, most of the things that we think about are completely irrelevant, yet we seem to be so consumed by them. This is not the case with organized people. They will make sure to practice mindfulness and remove the clutter from their minds on a daily basis. After this, they will focus on everything that is relevant to them.

Things like TV shows, get-togethers, and gossip are not relevant to such people. For them, reaching their goals is their main priority, and they will make sure that things get done when they need to get done!

4. They prefer the simpler way to do things

Organized people are not perfectionists and neither will they make their lives and work complicated. They prefer doing things in the simplest way possible, as long as they get the job done. Therefore, do not assume organized people to be control freaks. In fact, they love going with the flow, and if they know that circumstances will not let them change certain things, then they simply let them be instead of having a panic attack.

5. They keep everything well maintained

Life will never be perfect and it will entail many ups and downs. However, the important thing to know is that despite those ups and downs, you can take steps to make sure that every aspect of your life is well maintained and in balance. This is exactly what organized people do. They will give attention to the things that require their utmost attention and fix problems as they come up.

6. They are always concerned about future rewards

Organized people do things in a way that will provide them the most amounts of benefits in the future. For instance, they will never leave dirty dishes in the kitchen since they know that they will only pile up and become a hassle later on.

7. They get rid of the clutter

Clutter can be anyone’s worst nightmare, be it in the mind or the house. While most of the unorganized individuals will live most of their lives in the middle of clutter, the organized ones will eliminate as much of it as possible. Clutter is simply a hindrance to progress, and nothing can get done properly if everything inside of you and around you is a complete mess.

8. They “let it go” when they can’t seem to win

This point is similar to point 4. You will rarely see an organized person crying about something that they cannot control nor do anything about. Instead, they will just go with the flow and let go of things that they are not able to change instead of worrying about them constantly.

9. They don’t become prisoners of their routine

Organized people understand that their routine life has no authority over them. In fact, they know that their life can be as interesting and calm as they want it to be. For this reason, they will always make the relevant changes in their life to make sure that they remain the top most priority. They also do not let things get to their head.

10. They think smart and plan things in advance

Organized people know how important it is to plan things for the future. They will keep in mind any upcoming priorities that need to be taken care of and all the things that they wish to accomplish. This helps them remain vigilant and make sure that everything is in order so that they can live a smooth life without having to do things last minute.

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!
