15 Ways To Be A Highly Remarkable Person

15 Ways To Be A Highly Remarkable Person

Every person on earth has the ability to be a highly remarkable person. For each person, how to get here is different, just as each snowflake has a shape all its own. There is no definitive guide or plan that must be followed, because each personality, passion and priority can illuminate that special quality in an individual to make them remarkable.

Here are 15 ways to be a highly remarkable person. Find the bits and pieces of these that fit your personality and you can become the person you’ve always wanted to be.

1. Face your fears.

A remarkable person lives inside of you. Face your fears and let that person be seen by the world. Fears squash creativity. They keep us within our comfort zone. If you want to be the best version of yourself, you must break free of your fears, especially those that hold you back.

2. Do what you love.

Remarkable people do what they love. They don’t let the world dictate their life. They take it by the horns and take back their life. Do what you love and you will be happier, healthier, and more remarkable.

3. Be bold.

Take risks. Never settle. When you leave your comfort level you can truly enhance your life and your influence.

4. Listen.

Often times, the best way to be remarkable and interesting is to listen first. If you listen first, you will already know what interests the people you are talking to.

5. Expose yourself.

Learn a language. Love someone fully. Share your story. Take a class in something that interests you. Or go back to school. Expose yourself to a wide variety of topics. You’ll quickly find that you have a much wider breadth of interests than you expect. And with each new opportunity, you need new people who will help shape and mold the best version of yourself.

6. Solve big problems. Or little ones.

Think of solutions to solve problems that are affecting many people. Whether it’s volunteering at your local homeless shelter or taking a mission trip to a foreign country or even building a device that helps make something a little easier, use your skills to solve problems. Remarkable people help others.

7. Tell stories.

Your experiences are unique. Tell others about them. You may find out more about yourself than you think. By reminiscing and connecting with your past, you can move to the future. Tell the good stories, the bad stories, and be vulnerable. You’ll become more comfortable in your own skin.

8. Be Creative

Find your voice. Come up with your own sayings. Find an art form ore creative outlet that fits your personality. Do you like to write? Start a blog. Do you enjoy reading? Join a book club.

9. Learn something new every day.

When you learn something new each day, you have perspective. Whether you learn something as simple as how to tie a tie to a new word or a new way to put on your make-up, you’ll open your views and have more to say.

10. Be funny. Or witty. Or clever.

Easier said than done, I know. But everyone has a side. Show others your sense of humor, what you find funny, and you’ll find that you connect to people on a much more intimate level.

11. Be open.

Take the person that you show to your friends, your family, even your pets… and show it to the world. Keep private what needs to be, but don’t hide your personality.

12. Talk to strangers.

We often choose friends in a very odd way. We live near them. Or went to school with them. Or know them through our kids. When you are out and about in your daily life, talk to the people who are in the same place and time that you are. You may find that being neighbors is a much more shallow bond than two people who are madly obsessed with a local artist.

13. Help others.

Find ways to make other lives a little better — things as simple as shoveling your neighbors sidewalk to adopting a child in need. You don’t have to change the world. Just change one person’s life.

14. Be honest.

Stand your ground, understand your morals, and don’t cross that line. Whether someone agrees with your views or not, most will respect your opinion. And those who don’t? You’ll learn humility from their close-mindedness.

15. Be yourself.

You already are a remarkable person. You have the qualities already within you. Know and remember this. You don’t have to change. But don’t stay the same.

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!
