What is a Successful Mind?

Open Potential | Successful Mind Program | Melbourne
“You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.” – Rumi

To be successful, you need a successful mind.

A successful mind is fully awake to the present moment. It is a mind unobstructed by fear, doubt, worry or regret. A mind that remains calm, focused and confident, even in difficult situations.

A successful mind is organised and open, capable of learning quickly, thinking clearly, planning carefully, acting decisively and adapting fluidly to changing circumstances. It is able to hold clear inner vision and sustain motivation to achieve long-term goals; a mind that can “see, believe, achieve.”

A successful mind is unburdened by old wounds and bad habits. It brings balance and growth to the most important areas of life.

Rarely the result of happenchance, a successful mind is built by sincere and dedicated efforts.
