To thrive in business, you need to have the right mindset. A positive mindset will allow you to thrive and grow, but a negative mindset can lead to stagnation and frustration. The good news is that you have complete control over your mindset as long as you’re willing to put in the work to change it.
To find out how to successfully shift your mindset and channel positive ways of thinking, I spoke with Natasha Graziano, creator of the MBS Method™, a program that takes a scientific approach to manifesting and mindset shifting.
Manifesting often gets classified as ‘woo’, but Graziano’s MBS Method™ is rooted in neuroscience. She spent over a decade researching and refining techniques to infuse a scientific approach into manifestation. The result of this was the MBS Method™ (Meditational Behavioral Synchronicity), which focuses on removing self-limiting beliefs and cultivating a positive mindset to drive change.
As Graziano explains it, “Manifesting means making something happen now, bringing your thoughts to fruition, or bringing your goal to fruition.” Nothing ‘woo’ about that. In fact, it’s the fastest way to cultivate a positive mindset and bring more success into your life.
When you change your thought process, you’re actually changing the neural wiring of your brain. This is the power of positive thinking. Graziano points out that “whatever you are thinking on the inside is reflected on the outside.” If you’re thinking positive thoughts, you’ll begin to find more positivity around you and start looking at things in a different light. If you’re thinking negative thoughts, you’ll simply see negativity around you.
To create a success mindset in your business and your life, follow Graziano’s five pillars of manifestation:
1) Get clarity on your vision
Getting clarity means understanding exactly what you want. Most people mess up at this first hurdle because they don’t actually know what they want, or what they want is unfocused and all over the place. You need to have a clear, specific vision of what you want before you can move forward.
2) Remove the blockages
You often find that you have self-limiting beliefs that you were completely unaware of, and these were exactly what was holding you back. Once we realize we are standing in our own way of the thing we want, we can begin the next step of the journey.
3) Replace old beliefs with new beliefs
Release your old self-limiting beliefs and thought patterns and replace them with new, positive ones. In doing that, you’re rewiring your brain and opening yourself up to success and new possibilities. Let go of the anger, pain, frustration, sadness, and feelings of despair you had before. Replace those feelings with ones of hope, positivity, compassion, and self-kindness.
4) Expand your vision
Use visualization techniques, affirmations, and people around you to attract what you want into your life. With your limiting beliefs out of the way, start dreaming bigger.
5) Take inspired action
You can’t just sit back and wait for success to come to you, you have to take action and make it happen. When the doing and the thinking are aligned, you’re able to achieve massive success.
Using these methods, Graziano was able to take herself from the lowest point in her life four years ago to becoming the #1 ranked female motivational speaker under 40 in, best-selling author and entrepreneur who’s impacted over 500,000 people through her MBS Method™ programs.
If you have a true desire to change, anything is possible, you just have to commit to a positive mindset.
