Do you believe that good Architecture design means good business? Have you been told that you have to work really hard to get a promotion? That to earn more money in Architecture, you need to be older? That architects “make it” only after 50?

Or do you still believe that to “make it” in Architecture, you have to have a rich family to commission your first project, and if that’s not your case that you can only become “someone” in the architecture industry by means of pure “luck” or really hard work?

If any of those beliefs are yours then this is the reason for your suffering.

Why? Because those beliefs limit your actions, which in effect carry a limiting impact on your career and personal life.

Your mindset is the number one most important thing when it comes to making a change. Because all external, visible change can only be permanent when you change your beliefs that drive your actions forward and as an effect are responsible for the everyday reality you experience.

For me, success is not an action; it’s a way of life. If you want to accomplish great things, greatness must be reflected in everything that you do. Thus regardless of what it is you want to accomplish, the path to success must begin by adopting a success mindset.

Did you know that most people fail to reach their potential because of the habit of their fear of failure?

Yes, courage and fear tend to both be habits.

You can achieve a growth mindset by believing that you can become better and improve with time and practice.

If you believe you can change your outlook, then you can start by taking a look at yourself and figuring out the steps you can take to adapt your mind toward a more successful way of thinking.

Whatever it is, you must start with believing it is possible to get better, and then give yourself the time and dedication to improving.
