Is Your Mindset Holding You Back from Success?
June 8th, 2018
Want to know the #1 thing that determines whether your business will be a success?
BELIEVING that it will be a success.
I’m not joking.
Of course there’s slightly more to it than that (like actually doing the work), but if you don’t believe in yourself then all the other stuff doesn’t really matter.
The thoughts you think determine the actions you take so if you’re constantly telling yourself that you don’t have what it takes or that you’re not good enough…well guess what? Those thoughts become your reality.
Having an “I can do anything” mindset and believing in yourself 100% is what’s going to determine whether you step up and take action towards achieving your dreams or whether you just keep downloading the next new & shiny freebie you find.
It’s easy to spend a ton of time learning everything about business and entrepreneurship, but if you’re not taking ACTION and IMPLEMENTING then you’re not going to see RESULTS.
As much as I LOVE learning, there comes a time when you have to press pause on all the webinars and podcasts so that you can start DOING.
When I first started my business and discovered the world of online entrepreneurship, I remember seeing the term “mindset” come up a lot and dismissing it as something that didn’t apply to me.
But…the deeper I dove the more it became clear that pesky mindset issues were totally getting in my way. Sometimes they still do, but I’m much more aware of my thoughts now and also how to break through the mental blocks.
Truth is our thoughts and subconscious beliefs can be incredibly stubborn and changing them takes time and dedication.
Thoughts are actually a lot like children!
They’re persistent and unrelenting sometimes.
They never stop talking.
They have wild imaginations.
Let’s use my son as an example. He’s persistent with a capital P!
If it were up to him, he’d be eating yogurt and bread all day while watching movies.
Do I let him do this? HECK NO! I’m in charge (at least that’s what I’m telling myself…) and I know what’s best for him.
It’s the same with your thoughts.
YOU are the one in control. You know which thoughts are good for you and which ones aren’t.
YOU get to decide what goes on inside your mind so tell that inner mean voice to get lost and replace it with a kind and loving one instead.
Changing your thoughts takes time and dedication AND it’s the key to mastering the mindset of a successful business owner.
I work on my mindset every day through journaling, meditation, affirmations, surrounding myself with other awesome entrepreneurs and choosing to feed my brain inspiring and positive messages. It’s amazing what a difference it makes!
As one of my favourite leadership experts, Robin Sharma, says “no one will believe in you until you believe in you.”
I believe you have what it takes. DO YOU?
