No. I can’t do it. I don’t have enough money. I don’t have enough time. I am not good enough.”
This is what went through my mind for years before starting my business until I realized I was the only thing holding me back.
The mind is one of the most powerful tools that you can tap into. It can either destroy your business and dreams or it can skyrocket them.
Once your mindset changes, everything on the outside changes with it.
Your mindset is a very important thing you need to work on, I am going to give you tips on how to overcome those mindset blocks, so you can achieve your dreams and goals faster.
To be in control of our mind, we need to be aware of how it works.
The mind is the most powerful tools we have and I am not talking about the physical brain.
The nonphysical part: your thoughts, your beliefs, your confidence, and your energy.
We need to be aware of how to use it, how to cultivate it, how to sustain it, and how to use it to empower you.
WATCH OUT FOR THE EMPLOYEE MENTALITY
You have probably heard this before ” you cannot build a six figure business with a minimum wage mentality”.
This isn’t talking about the actual dollar amount you make. This is being stuck in the employee mindset.
You are used to someone telling you when to show up, when you can take a break, and when you can go home.
They are telling you the expectations, what your goals should be, and what actions you should take. So it’s kind of like you are not in control.
You show up, you do the work, and you go home. You are not invested. Your mind is not invested.
When I quit my job to build my business full time from home, I struggled because I had no structure. There was nobody telling me what to do when.
I had to drop the employee mentality. I had to figure it out on my own. Once I did I was able to move my business forward.
If you wait or blame someone else for the results, it is a sign you are stuck in the employee mentality. It can be changed easily by starting to take action and make your own decisions without someone tell you to.
Stop waiting for someone to tell you what to do.
MAKE THE INVESTMENT
When people want to start a business they tend to push off investing from the beginning.
They think they cannot invest because they aren’t making any money or maybe they feel like they don’t have time to learn a new skill.
They tell themselves once I have money or time I will invest in a coach or course.
Unfortunately, there will never be enough time or money.
If you want to become successful, you don’t’ need to have the money or time.
You need to have a killer leader mindset.
What leaders do is they make those scary decisions without knowing how they are going to execute them. Then they figure out how to achieve it.
Any leader will tell you the money you invest in yourself will pay off.
Your dreams are worth investing in, and you should not be afraid of that decision.
DON’T CLOSE THE DOOR
Another sign that your mindset is keeping you from achieving your goals, is that you are living in a scarcity mindset.
That doesn’t mean you are scared all the time.
What I mean is, if you catch yourself turning down an incredible opportunity, like a speaking engagement or event, because you keep telling yourself no, I don’t have results yet, I have a job, or I don’t have enough money then you need to flip your mentality.
Stop tell yourself I can’t. When you do that you cut off the possibility of that event, your brain stops working on it.
You close the door and your are never going to open it again.
It can be very easy. Instead of telling yourself no, ask yourself, how can I? How can I commit? How can I overcome that fear?
You will be surprised at what you can do when you don’t shut the door.
