The Successful Mind Podcast – Episode 418 – Mindset Monday’s – Break Your Rules

The average person knows all about what’s “impossible,” why something won’t work, why it can’t be done, and the “rules” that don’t work. That’s the definition of mediocrity.

However, for those who seek success, there are certain rules that make you successful. You have to be willing to stake everything on those rules. As Napoleon Hill said in Think and Grow Rich, “Success comes to those who become success conscious.”

In today’s episode you’ll learn:


    • Being “success conscious” means you’re aware of what it takes to win
    • Being “failure conscious” means you let your external reality control what you think
    • If you’re not getting the results you want, it’s because there’s a problem you’re not aware of—and once you become aware of it, you can change it
    • If you’re not seeing a solution, you might have a “rule” set up in your mind that’s causing you not to see it—and which is causing you to go into the perfect excuse for why you can’t reach your goal
    • You can demand to yourself that you see the solution to your problem (by understanding that if a problem exists, the solution must be here)
    • Being “success conscious” is all about yes’s—everything in your marketing, advertising, speaking, books, and sales calls should be designed to do one thing very clearly—get a person to a “yes” or a “no”
    • It’s better to get to a “no” quickly than to stay in the ambiguity of mediocrity and confusion 


When you stop pursuing your goal because of a problem that shows up, it’s because you’ve convinced yourself you can’t do it, it won’t work, your resources have run out, or the thing you need isn’t here.

Becoming success conscious allows you to change your reality based on how you think. Break the “rules” you’ve set up that have been holding you back.
