5 Ways to Boost Your Mindset Mojo for Success

Write well


We all have that desire to be successful. The only difference is that there are those who actually manage to be successful, while there are others who spend all their lives trying. Well, that is also the case when we talk about career. Some of us succeed, but there are others who spend their lives trying.

Some people would even shift from one career to another just to see how they would become successful. Unfortunately, it is not really the kind of career that’s going to lead you to success. Rather, it is the right mindset. There are lots of people who would choose academic courses that are said to offer high salaries after college, but they later find out that there is more to success than merely choosing a specific career field.

How do you lead yourself to success? You do it by having the right mindset, of course.

It’s not that easy, I know. Don’t worry, these five tips will help you realize that you already knew what to do all along.


Know your worth

You can’t accept people to give you your worth if you don’t even know your worth to begin with.

When we graduate from college and get our first job, we assume that by doing our best, the company and everybody else we work with is going to return the favor. We assume that as long we are doing things right, we will get what we deserve, but sadly, other people won’t be giving us what we deserve. On the contrary, they will be giving us the opposite.

If there is one person who is going to give us what we deserve, that person is us. That being said, you have to know what you deserve. You have to know your worth. If you don’t know your worth then how can you expect to get what you deserve? If you don’t know your worth then you’ll feel as if you don’t deserve every good thing that comes to you.


Don’t settle for things that are below your worth

The truth is that you are the only one who is going to treat yourself right.

Don’t get me wrong. Other people are bound to treat you right, that is if you show them what “right for you means.” Why? Well, people are going to treat the way they see how you treat yourself. So, if they see that you are settling for less, they are bound to treat you with less value. You can choose to settle with it if you want, but if you’re just going to settle for whatever the world throws at you then you’ll most likely just be spending the rest of your life trying to chase success, but it will always seem like it’s out of reach.


Believe in yourself

We are all unique in our different ways. We all have our own set of skills that sets us apart from other people. So, you don’t have to compare yourself with other successful people. Your success is way different from other people’s success.

Believe in what you can do. Never doubt yourself.


Shun other people that put you down

Don’t get me wrong.  I’m not saying that you should start avoiding people and cut off bridges. What I’m saying is that you shouldn’t let people bring you down.

Whenever they say things that are opposite your principles and self-concept, and then just shun off the idea. You don’t have to believe them. People can give opinions about you as much as you they can, but at the end of the day, it is still you who knows yourself best. So, just hold on to how you know yourself and don’t let yourself be let down by how other people try to put you down.


Have courage

You have to be brave. The world is going to throw lots of things on you, and there is nothing you can do about it than be brave.

You can decide to cry inside your room. You can sulk at the corner, but that’s not going to help you one bit. You have to bravely take on the world.

Write to Help Clear Your Mind

A guide for college students and stress relief  

by Jay Donnelly



For those of you entering or about to enter college, it is going to be one of the most stressful times of your life. You’ll have 1000 thoughts running through your head, and multiple stresses to deal with on a daily basis. Sometimes, college students tend to use alcohol as a way of coping. This may provide short term relief, but it doesn’t truly help clear your head. You’ll wake up the next day feeling like your head is going to explode, as well as try to deal with the essay you have due in the next day. But it’s all part of growing up. One method you should explore to try for clearing your mind is writing. Just like with reading a book, writing can help take you to another planet and forget your worries.


College Work

College work to help clear your mind? You must think I’m mad, I know. But isn’t college work the one thing that’s clogging up your mind? Exactly. So using it to your advantage and as a way of helping to clear your mind can be really beneficial. The main setback is people don’t know how to write properly, or what to write about. This is when the panic sets in. If this sounds like you, then relax yourself into it. If you’re struggling with the essay writing technique, or just for inspiration in general, then check out this website: Use it as a way of expressing yourself through education. Once the essay is over, your mind will 100% be a lot clearer, especially if you enjoyed what you wrote about.


Write A Book

Like we said in the first paragraph, reading a book can help take your mind off everything. Writing a book has the same effect. Immersing yourself into an imaginary world will help clear your mind for the duration of the time spent writing. Focus your energy entirely on your story, and you’ll feel free. They’re also really fun to write. Who knows, you can find your book gets published, or maybe even become a best seller. If you believe in yourself and your story, you really could become successful. If you want some hints and tips in regards to what makes a good story, then check out this blog post.



Blogging is one of the best ways to clear your mind. To find out how to set up a blog: check out Start Blogging Online: Getting your thoughts and opinions out to the world, to people you’re most likely never going to meet, is an amazing feeling. Especially when you know people are starting to read and enjoy your blog as well. You can write about literally anything you wish to write about, and if you get good enough you could even get paid as well! You’ll make some great virtual friends along the way, and you’ll be able to talk about absolutely everything you want to. It’s an easy thing to set up, and shouldn’t take up too much of your time if you know what you’re wanting to write about.


So when you start to feel that pressure of college sinking in, and the walls are closing in around you, relax and try writing on for size. It might just be the stress reliever you need.
