To develop a recruiting mindset, you need to have daily positive habits that will make an immediate difference in your lifestyle and help you reach your goals. They add a sense of reliability to your day so no matter how many risks you take, your habits will always be there to depend on. You want to work with focus and balance and stay away from stress, fear and worry.
1- Remove yourself from gossip and negativity.
Seek relationship with like-minded people and positive, smart people. If a other person insists on involving you in the gossip, make it clear that you don’t feel comfortable with this situation. It’s up to you to draw the line and explain to the other person that you don’t like gossiping or basing your work relationships on rumors. Get your facts straight and if you need to avoid some people to evolve in your life and reach your goals, don’t hesitate because at the end of the day you are the master of your life, and you are the one paying your bills. Offer to resolve the problem!
2- Consciously choose to replace your negative emotions to positive thoughts.
Switch the “I can’t” to “I can” and “I won’t” to “I will”. When you start having negative emotions, stop yourself straight away, choose to live in a state of mindfulness. Do some meditations, write a personal journal where you can write your intentions, your affirmations, your gratitude. Don’t play the victim, you create your life so take your responsibility. Creativity can feel like a release. When you put your emotions through an art form, you get them out of your system and clear them out. Don’t take anything for granted anymore. Sometimes the good things in our lives are right in front of our faces and we still fail to see them.
3- Do some form of exercise.
15 mins of exercise is enough to release the endorphins, serotonin and other happy chemicals in your brain. It trains the brain to believe that your “behavior matters” which then carries positivity in all your activities during the day. Take a walk alone away from your usual atmosphere. Head somewhere uplifting like a park or museum. The time spent distancing yourself from those negative influences can bring you great peace of mind. You can also do some gardening, it is very relaxing and you’ll enjoy the things you are creating.
Life is a marathon, not a sprint.
4- Focus on what matters the most
Sometimes in the daily grind, we lose focus on all the ways things that are going right in our lives. We have to learn to say NO sometimes and also take time to meditate, read, sleep. Simply say so — you can compliment the idea, the project, the person, the organization … but say that it’s not the right fit, or it’s not what you’re looking for at this time. If you are constantly stressed and overwhelmed, you need to stop pushing yourself or you’ll crash and burn out. Once you know exactly the new skills you want to learn, practice a lot because you’ll get more confident and you will thrive to your path to greatness.
5- Find a mentor or a coach that will teach you and guide you
They went through all these feelings and they will help you to overcome fear and stress. Having someone who practically guides you and shares your worries with you — often placating your fears with their years of experience — keeps you reassured that you’ll be successful. The valuable connections, timely advice, occasional checks — together with the spiritual and moral guidance you will gain from having a mentor — will literarily leapfrog you to success. Mentorship is one guaranteed way to gain experience from others
Elimination of negative thoughts and becoming positive takes time so be patient and practice, practice. Don’t forget you are the sum of the five people with whom you spend the most time. Look around and choose wisely your surroundings. Your business and your success will depend on the people you have around you. Plan the day before so you know your tasks and you are not stressed out.
Hope you got value, and I would love to hear from you.
