How to Cultivate a Success Mindset

Our iBloom Team recently hosted a virtual retreat to help women create their success strategy. During the retreat we discussed how vital it is to have a mindset for success. A success mindset doesn’t just happen- it must be intentionally cultivated.

Here are three ways that you can begin cultivating a success mindset.

#1: Choose Your Thoughts

Be intentional about what you think. When negative thoughts or situations come to mind, choose to re-frame them immediately. Don’t allow your mind to replay negative events or hurtful comments. Change your inner dialogue.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable— if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.
Philippians 4:8

#2: Cultivate an Attitude of Gratitude

People who practice grateful thinking reap emotional, physical and interpersonal benefits. People who regularly keep a gratitude journal report fewer illness symptoms, feel better about their lives as a whole and are more optimistic about the future. We must choose to cultivate an attitude of gratitude.

A great way to begin cultivating an attitude of gratitude is to keep a gratitude journal. Use your journal daily to celebrate God’s blessings in your life.

#3: Surround Yourself with Inspiring, Success-Driven People

There will be people in your everyday life who just don’t “get” you. It might be a family member or close friend. Don’t allow their views to stop you from pursing what God has called you to. Successful people are intentional about who they surround themselves with regularly. You need people in your life who have a big vision, who are working toward their goals, and who will encourage and support you as your pursue yours.

If you’re looking for a community of inspiring, success-driven people we’d love for you to join us in the iBloom Inner Circle. It’s an amazing community of women who are all committed to making their goals a reality. Plus, it’s the perfect place for our iBloom team to encourage and support you. For more information, go to
