Mentioned below are some habits that would align in helping you develop a winning mindset. These are not some conventional habits that you could find somewhere in a self-help book and so the title ‘unconventional’. Hope they prove to be helpful to you.

  • When you feel like giving up, give more. Your mind thinks that the way you make it think, it can do only what it thinks it can do. The moment you say, “I don’t have the energy” or “I’m not capable of that,” you are actually training your brain to live up to your diminished expectations. So, when you think you can’t do more. Just do the opposite and put in more efforts. And you will see the magic that happens.
  • Accept wherever you are in life. Accept your reality and make the most out of it. You might not be in a very good situation, but as long as you accept it, you will keep moving forward and your journey would be rewarding and happy.  Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nowhere, and sometimes in the middle of nowhere you find yourself.
  • Seek new experiences. New experiences are all about learning and growing along the way. The greater the experience, the wiser the person. The most valuable lessons cannot be taught, they must be experienced. New experiences might bring pain, setbacks, failure, sorrow but when you give it a thought, you will realise the amount of endurance, strength, growth and wisdom that came to you while being on that journey. It’s all worth it.
  • Be you. Don’t live the life someone else wants you to live neither try to copy someone. Just be true to yourself and be what you want to be and what you want to do. Always remember, if you don’t fit in the crowd that means you are extraordinary! don’t to change yourself to be more acceptable to the crowd. They will come along when they realise your worth.
  • Find opportunities in every situation. While victories bring happiness and feeling of accomplishment, failures bring experience and wisdom. It is a win-win. Don’t let failures take a toll on you. Figure out what can be done and move ahead. Find opportunities, not problems.


These things might seem small and insignificant but they really do make a difference. It is all about thinking from a new angle, from a new perspective. Hope they help you.
