How Your Mentality Plays a Big Role in How You Are Perceived

Winning Mentality of a Team/ mentality playing a big role

Being an ardent football fan for one of the biggest football clubs in Europe. I sat down one afternoon watching my favourite team playing and could not erase a thought from my mind. I kept thinking of one word “Mentality”. I kept observing the spectators and I could see the joy and pride amongst the supporters. Even the commentator was making a remark about the winning mentality of the team and yes the word struck to my brain like glue. It was only normal for me to pick up my laptop to start writing. Now what is this mentality I am talking about?

Mentality is a salient framework by which we are being are perceived by any one we come across. How your mentality plays a big role cannot be over emphasized. Mentality can be defined as a way of thinking or the ability to think and learn. Our mental capacity directs our ability to communicate and socialize with people around us. If you have a mentality of a child then you will be perceived as a child. Even if you are a full grown adult, if you think like a child then you will be treated as such. I have seen people been referred to as children, the funny thing is they take offense because they are definitely not children but it’s not their fault as they grew up that way.

Your mentality cuts across various aspects of life. If you have the mentality to be poor then definitely you will be poor. If you have the mentality to be rich then you will be rich. Your brain is like the software of the body, whatever command you give to it; it will act towards achieving that. Goals don’t just manifest themselves they are a product of our thinking. Your mentality drives your actions. Your mentality makes things happen. If you have a mentality to be successful, then opportunities will present themselves for you to achieve that. Have you seen a situation when you wish for something to happen positively and it just happens like that without prior notice? That is our mentality working for us. Make a decision today to have the right thoughts.

The word”mental,” which means of the mind, or how your mind works can be measured through various test such as IQ test or through schooling test. Our mentality can improve as a result of experience too. As we grow through life we learn lessons which affect our mentality whether for good or bad. The mentality of a company or a business venture will have a say if that company will grow or not. The mentality of the founder needs to be instilled on the workers so that they can play into the strengths of the company. The mentality of the company is seen in its ideology which will also play in the core values. If the mentality is nothing to write home about then in no time will that venture be a shadow of itself.

Keying into this will go a long way in ensuring you live a life of your dreams. Success doesn’t come easily, it needs to be acquired and only if the mentality is right for it. That feeling when a football team makes that last minute equalizer or even a winning goal against all odds, that’s an example of a winning mentality. The zeal to never give up despite all odds is what differentiates the men from the boys. Even in other kind of sports it’s only common to see successful teams at the top of their games because of the collective positive mentality of the team and staff. This plays a big role in all their games throughout the season. Having a winning mentality does not start in a day it is something gained overtime and with experience.

Your mentality defines you to a great deal. You are a product of what you think and do. Your decisions are influenced by your mentality. It is warped around it like the web of a spider.  Why do you want to be a loser when you can be an amazing person with the right personality and attitude? When your mentality is the backbone of your thoughts then you are heading in the right direction.

Positive thinking and positive mentality goes together if you think positively every time then you will attract good opportunities to yourself. When you continue in positivism then your mentality generally will talk for you. People will view you as a happy person. If you want to start making money you need to have a rich mentality and work towards that. Most successful people do not have a mentality of failure instead their mind is programmed towards winning. If you don’t have a winning mentality today strive to gain some. Begin by erasing negative thoughts from your mind from there you can start filtering your thoughts one at a time. This cuts across all works of life the power is in your hands and the decision lies with you.
