Habits of Successful People-Self-Concept-Positive ThinkingThe whole secret of personal success is to find out what your calling is, and then do it. The great question for success is, what are the habits of successful people? Why is it that some people have positive thinking patterns, while others do not? What determines your self-concept for success?

Many successful people have been interviewed over the years and asked the question, “What do you think about, most of the time?” Their answers are simple and consistent, and yet so profound that they can be life changing. In short, the habits of successful people revolve around positive thinking. They think about what they want, and how to get it.

Successful people have all concluded, one way or the other that the way your self-concept and mind is programmed from early childhood. Your self-concept plays a decisive role in almost everything you think, feel and accomplish as an adult. By learning these four habits of successful people, you too will become a successful person!

Plan for success in 2014 and beyond with the secret ingredient that sets apart the ultra-successful from the average by mastering self-discipline, get it for FREE here: No Excuses! The Power of Self-Discipline.

1. The Self-Concept

Your self-concept is the “master program” of your subconscious computer. It acts as your mental operating system. Every thought, feeling, emotion, experience, and decision you have ever had is permanently recorded on this mental hard drive. Once recorded, these impressions then influence the way you think, feel and behave from that point onward.

Your self-concept precedes and predicts your levels of effectiveness in every area of your life. Your self-concept explains why the mental laws have such an inordinate effect on your personality.

2. Habits of Successful People Through Self-Concept

Once your self-concept in a particular area is formed, you always act in a manner consistent with it. You may have extraordinary ability in a particular area, but if your self-concept is poor in that area, you will always perform below your true potential. The habits of successful people are to have positive thinking and positive self-concepts in all areas of their life.

You have a self-concept for how well you speak in public. You have a self-concept for how popular you are. You have a self-concept for what kind of a spouse or partner you are. You have a self-concept for what kind of a parent you are. You have a self-concept for how well you perform in each sport or physical activity. You have a self-concept for how organized or disorganized you are. You have a self-concept for how well you manage your time and how productive you are. You have a self-concept for your ability to read, write and do mathematics.

In your business and career, you have a self-concept for every aspect of your financial life.  Through positive thinking, you have a self-concept for how much you earn, and how hard you have to work to earn that amount of money. You have a self-concept for how rapidly you are promoted and how much your earnings increase  year-by-year.

3. Your Comfort Zone

Whatever your self-concept, your habit of thinking with regard to money or any other area of performance, will become your “comfort zone.” Your comfort zone then becomes your greatest single obstacle to improved performance. Once you get into a comfort zone in any area, you will strive and struggle unconsciously to remain in that comfort zone, even though it may be vastly below what you are truly capable of achieving in that area.

The key to achieving your full potential and develop the same habits of successful people is for you to raise your self-concept in through positive thinking patterns. It is for you to develop new habits of positive thinking about what is possible for you. The way that you accomplish vastly more on the outside is by changing your thoughts and feelings about your potential in that area on the inside.

4. Program Positive Thinking For Greater Success

Your self-concept is your self-ideal. This is the ideal image or picture you have of yourself, as if you were already the very best person you could possibly be. Your self-ideal and self-concept is made up of your wishes, hopes, dreams, goals, and fantasies about your perfect future life, combined with the qualities and virtues that you admire most in yourself and in other people. Your self-ideal and self-concept is a composite through positive thinking of the very best person you could imagine yourself being, living the very best life you could possibly live.

High performing, successful, happy people have very clear self-ideals. They have clear ideas of what they like, respect and admire. They have clear ideals about the virtues, values and attributes of the superior men and women that they want to emulate. The most successful people have an uplifting, inspiring vision of what a truly excellent person looks like and how he or she behaves within their self-concept.

Your Potential Is Unlimited

You are a remarkable person, possessed of incredible untapped potentials and abilities. Whatever you have accomplished in life so far is only a shadow of what is truly possible for you. There are virtually no limits on what you can do, be and have except for the limits that you impose on yourself with your own thinking.

By following these four steps and by taking complete control of the development of your self-concept through positive thinking, you lay the foundation for the development that will enable you to accomplish more in the next few years than the average person accomplishes in a lifetime. By developing the habits of successful people you too will become a success.

    We talk a great deal about self-worth without utilizing anything we say that is positive. Seldom do we make a real judgment of ourselves and consider ourselves as we really are and who or what we can become. If we were to get more hard-nosed about ourselves, our lives would absolutely become much more fruitful and productive, because our thoughts sow the seeds for who we become tomorrow.

    It makes sense as only those who are “at peace” with themselves and are comfortable with what they know and can do can actually proceed to move forward out of that comfort zone and become successful by embarking on new opportunities.

    really great post. i heard 80% of work involved to get successfull is work on your inner world. “Once your self-concept in a particular area is formed, you always act in a manner consistent with it.” this is probably the key to understand it all. a lot of people did write about the comfort zone, but i never really got it. now i think i have a much more clearer understanding of the principles involved here.

    Hi Brian, Thanks for the priceless tips, (as ever), and I hope to find you well.
    Positive thinking is fantastic but, when we have been brainwashed for so many generations, it no longer comes naturally to the average human. Today’s individual needs to reclaim their freedom to think and enjoy a life of personal choice and decision making. I believe that by using self hypnosis audios, we could find a much faster route to our chosen destination. Best wishes, John

    Hello Mr. Brian Tracy,

    This article you have here reminds me of your book “Advanced Selling Strategies.” I love in this article that you emphasize that before you can achieve the tangible, you have to conquer the spiritual. I like that you mentioned that there are no limits on what people can achieve, and what we do is based on our self-concept. I also like how you mentioned that you can have a poor self-concept and axtraordinary ability and still underachieve, which is actually good news because if you change your mind,everything else does too. Thank you for another daily dose of inspiration!-Angelica Allen-Bentley, author of forthcoming book Abracadabra; How Your Mind Plays Tricks On You & How To Win Every Time
