Mental Health Habits of Successful People: Thinking Differently

This series of posts on mental health habits has so far covered varied Mental Health Resources such as developing and strengthening habits, creating a growth mindset, thinking like a millionaire, and most importantly, taking care of one’s mental health to avoid various types of mental health problems.

Today, let’s talk about thinking differently and how that can help one’s mental health and also help succeed.

History is witness to the fact that those who thought differently, experienced different results from the mass majority. Whether it was Steve Jobs whose company, Apple, originally carried the banner of “think differently” as an ad slogan or great thinkers like, Plato and Socrates, thinking differently has always helped people to progress, move forward, break boundaries and experience how limitless their potential to grow can be.

Here is how YOU, too, can start to be more innovative in your thoughts with these mental health success habits and see the results:

Mental Health Success Habit: Question… everything

One of the first ways to start thinking differently is to question everything. Don’t just accept something as the ONLY way to do/say/feel something just because that’s how it has been for years.

Question it. See whether it can be different, better, improved, innovated upon? Use a growth mindset!

Yes, innovation is the cornerstone of thinking differently and questioning everything will help you get those grey cells ticking and thinking… differently.

Mental Health Success Habit: Work at thinking differently

The second habit to help you succeed in life, create a growth mindset and at thinking differently is to keep at it. Don’t just do brainstorming, questioning, reviewing, reworking as a one-off exercise. Keep at it. Repeat it. Work at it so that thinking out of the box and looking at things from a perspective different from that of others starts to come naturally to you.

Mental Health Success Habit: Don’t be afraid to test waters

One of the reasons many people are wary or even, nervous about thinking differently is because it forces them to test the waters, it presents a risk of failure, it opens up their work to possible criticism by those who aren’t used to being questioned. Yes, testing the waters is an important part of thinking differently and you need to be prepared to jump in and swim.

Thinking differently, like most habits of success or most Mental Health Resources, will need practice, repetition and a firm belief in your self before it starts to show you the results it has shown innovators and thinkers of the past.

Start with these mental health and growth mindset success habits today!

Habits of Successful People: Mental Health Care

Habits of Successful People: Mental Health Care

Mental health care is increasingly becoming an important and integral part of everyone’s lives. With various Types of Mental Health Problems skyrocketing and pressures piling on, it is not just important but essential for everyone to practice good mental health care.

In this series of posts on the habits of successful people, today let’s look at the role mental health plays.

Successful People Learn to Manage Stress

With success comes stress but truly successful people learn to manage that stress so that it doesn’t lead to greater and bigger problems like, physiological illnesses and mental health problems.

Whether it is eating right, exercising regularly or simply learning to prioritize, successful people practice good mental health habits on an everyday basis and keep their minds as strong as their bank balances.

Mental Health Means Taking Time for “Me”

Successful people also don’t feel guilty about taking time out and doing things for themselves. They realise and accept the fact that unless they, themselves, are well taken care of they wouldn’t be able to do much for any one else.

So, whether it is a holiday thrice in the year or weekly golf sessions or even, an everyday run with their pet or family, they’ll do things that nurture their minds and keep them healthy, both physically and mentally.

Successful people also believe in stress management rather than stress elimination. They enjoy the pressures and thrill of deadlines and goals  but at the same time, they learn to not get driven into the ground by it and taking regular mental health breaks helps them to do that.

Successful People Enjoy What they Do

Another little known mental health secret of successful people is that they actually enjoy what they do so much that it really doesn’t feel like work. They don’t think of their “job” as  drudgery or boredom-inducing tasks but rather are excited about the prospect of going to work, meeting goals, overcoming challenges and growing both as a person and a professional.

When you think of what you do with passion and excitement, managing your mental health becomes a priority and even, easier to do.

Habits of Successful People: Fostering a Growth Mindset

Habits of Successful People: Fostering a Growth Mindset

Growth mindset. Yes, we have talked a lot about this in the last few weeks. From understanding the impact of growth mindset for students to a growth mindset guide for parents, we’ve gone beyond basics of understanding what it is and learning how to apply its principles to our lives.

Today, let’s look at how growth mindset is one of the key habits or rather, the traits, of most successful people.

Successful People Foster a Growth Mindset

Every success has had its share of failures in the past. We may not always see it or know about it, but there is hardly a success that has not had a failure or two under its belt.

The difference is that successful people don’t let failures define who they are and what they can do.

The believe in learning from their mistakes, changing their mindset and believe that challenges and obstacles are just another stepping stone.

Think of Warren Buffet, Steve Jobs, Walt Disney. All these hugely successful people faced failures at various stages of life but they didn’t let their failures define their futures or their mindset.

Successful People Welcome Challenges and Obstacles

Not only do successful people treat failures as part of their learning curves, but they also welcome challenges and obstacles as opportunities to grow and progress.

Challenges and obstacles give them an opportunity to discover hidden strengths or potential or learn something new about themselves. Because a growth mindset encourages developing talents through effort, persistence and teaching, they treat these challenges as just another way of “teaching”.

Successful People Look Forward to Developing New Talents

That’s right. Successful people don’t just settle for having a “fixed” amount of intelligence or talents or abilities. They’re willing to push the limits and expand, grow and strive higher than ever. Whether in sports or in business, you’ll constantly see those with growth mindsets setting the bar higher for themselves. That is why successful people always seem to be adding another feather to their cap when actually, all they’re doing is growing with every single step, every stumble, every stride.
