Want to know what sets the uber-successful apart from the wannabe entrepreneurs?
It’s not money, or brilliant ideas, or even powerful friends.
All of those things (and more) are nice to have, but they’re not a requirement of success. What is a must-have, though, is a good attitude.
Without the proper mindset, you’ll constantly be battling your own brain and that’s exhausting!
- allow yourself to believe your ideas are no good
- remain convinced that you aren’t smart enough
- be certain that someone else did it better (whatever “it” is)
Before you know it, you’ll have talked yourself right out of launching your new program, asking for a JV partnership, or writing your book.
In no time at all, you’ll be back at your day job, working away on someone else’s business because you don’t have the confidence to create your own. Ugh.
But a simple mindset change can make all the difference.
Dress for success
Ladies, this one’s for you!
When we work at home, it’s easy to fall into a habit of wearing sweatpants and T-shirts to the office. After all, why dress up just for the dog?
But if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to instantly shift your mindset in the right direction, ditch the yoga pants and bring out the lipstick.
You’ll suddenly find you feel more professional, more confident, and sexier too (that last one won’t necessarily help your business, but it might just help your love life, and that can’t hurt, can it?).
Don’t overthink it
Oh boy, if this isn’t one that plagues us all!
When we keep second guessing ourselves, we delay our decision-making process which can really affect the success of our business (and general state of mind, to be honest).
It’s natural to do this as we are only humans after all, but the best option is to go with an informed decision from the information you have at your disposal at that time.
You then simply have to go with your gut and stick with it. Maintain a positive outlook in that if a decision turns out not to be a great one, then at least you would’ve learned something.
Stand by your first decision. You can do this!
Never let fear drive your decisions
Fear clouds judgement.
Too many would-be entrepreneurs operate with a scarcity mindset rather than approaching business from a place of abundance.
Instead of telling yourself that you can’t afford to hire a virtual assistant or work with a coach, try reframing your thoughts.
Rather than thinking, “I can’t afford to attend that event,” ask yourself, “How can I earn the money to invest in this trip?”
Rather than saying, “I have to do everything myself because I can’t afford to hire a VA,” remind yourself that your hourly rate potential is much more than you’d pay a virtual assistant. Then fill those hours you’re saving by outsourcing with money-making tasks of your own.
Change those fearful thoughts into proactive ones that will bring about positive solutions to help you grow!
With a success mindset, anything, and I mean ANYTHING is possible! It’s about taking charge of how you want your life and business to be and having the confidence to make the decisions that will lead you there.
