Attitudes, Beliefs and Behavior Determine Goals

There are three important elements for your personal and professional success: (1) the attitude that you have toward your personal and professional life, (2) the beliefs you model your personal and business life around, and (3) the behavior that you have towards yourself and others.  These three elements are tightly connected and interwoven, and can either make or break the personal and professional confidence with which you set, and meet, your goals.

Let’s break these three elements down even further.

• Attitudes:  Attitudes are the ways that you react to situations, and to people, based on the assumptions and the beliefs that you have learned. 
• Beliefs:  Your beliefs are the conjectures that you make about yourself, other people, and situations.  Your beliefs are based on what you think and how you think things are.  Your beliefs will make you react the way that you do and cause your expectations to remain within a certain framework of thoughts.
• Behaviors:  Your behavior is how you implement the attitudes that you have adopted towards situations and people. 

When people positively change their attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors they open the doors to new possibilities.  Life success depends on the ability to change and be willing to learn new ways of thinking and doing things.

One of the techniques that successful people use to change their behavior is to model their personal and professional beliefs on someone in their field whom they admire and respect.  Who is it that they admire and respect?  When people find someone who is successful in a way that they themselves define success, they need to take a look at what these successful people are doing and how they are doing it. 

Another thing that people should concentrate on is to ask themselves who they’re mixing with.  If people find that they’re spending time with other people who wouldn’t be defined as successful then they need to start mixing with those people who do define success and are leading successful professional lives.  This doesn’t mean that you leave behind those people in your life who have chosen poor goals.  It only means that you start mixing with those people that have an attitude towards their life that is considered to be positive and winning.

What this means for you is that you encourage positive leadership and modeling in your life so that you are able to succeed and achieve the goals that you have set for yourself.  Goals are personal to every individual so it’s up to you to set the bar when it comes to your attitude and determination.
