Mindset is the Number 1 Key to Success in Business.
But just what is mindset? Can you describe it simply?
I’ll attempt to do so…
Mindset is a combination of experiences, beliefs and personality. These all create a way of thinking that leads to assumptions about future experiences.
In regards to beliefs you instill 95% of your beliefs from your own parents, before age 5!
Does that scare you at all?
Perhaps it should!
Experiences are determined by your upbringing. Where you lived, class levels, education etc. Combine these with personality and beliefs and there’s a powerful mix of determinants of your life success, level of wealth, happiness and relationships – all forming when you were a child.
Want to change some things about your business and life?
There’s only one way.
Change some things about your life.
The books you read, audio you listen to and people you associate 100% govern your success from TODAY until the rest of your life.
We need all 3 “Magic” ingredients because they work like magic to change your mindset.
This isn’t a one off experience to change your life or business; it’s an ongoing experience that is needed.
Our world programs us to struggle and fail. It starts to happen to us when we were a child. The TV, internet, radio and print media are perpetuating the mindset thinking that keeps people struggling.
Top entrepreneurs and mindset educators state… “You will earn a similar average of 5 people you spend the most time with.
Who do you spend the most time with? Do they have 20% to 100% more than you do?
“Birds of a feather flock together”. Want to become a fulfilled business owner? Loving life, feeling happier in your being every year… Laughing more and more each day… With the choice where you take holidays and for how long and with whom?
Would you like $50,000 to $200,000 more income for yourself?
It all happens after our mindset is improved and not before.
It all comes down to 3 things… what you listen to, the books you read and the people you spend time with.
If don’t do any of these things, your life fulfilment won’t increase. Sure, you may make more money, but that’s not fulfilment. Money isn’t fulfilment, but sure, it can help to relieve pressure and give you choices.
Where do you source quality audio content? What books are best to read? Where are the people to associate with that are positive thinking, empowered, happy, dynamic, creative, solution orientated?
Finding and paying a mentor is one way to help with mindset by associating with them, listening to them, reading their information. All 3 of these are required for months and months, not days. Good mentors are students of success themselves. That means they have sources of content where they learn and benefit from all 3 magic ingredients of success.
Find a good mentor and you can find a good source of ongoing information.
Yes, mentors cost money, but so? Don’t most good things in life?
They need to be paid for their time, so a free one is going to be poor. A friend isn’t a mentor, because their level of success is probably very similar to yours (and probably one of the 5 people you spend time with), or they just won’t hold you accoutable.
Let’s imagine an opportunity to attend an event about business success comes up. What’s your first thought?
If it’s… “I don’t have time” – or “What’s the cost?” – your mindset is sabotaging your success.
You must always have time for greater success as a mindset, otherwise you will dismiss opportunities for greater success when something new comes along.
If you dismiss new experiences before even looking at what they are, you are running assumptions about them. These assumptions are what cost people a fortune. Entrepreneurs don’t run many assumptions, that’s where and why they succeed where other people think there wasn’t any opportunity.
How do you stop this self-sabotage of success through new experiences?
Investigate every opportunity with an open mind and then make an informed decision about it, not a knee-jerk one based on an initial first opinion.
Opinions are extremely dangerous things. We all have them, on virtually every subject.
Opinion is our ego expressing itself.
Do you know the role of the ego is to make you self-righteous and sceptical about anything beneficial?
It’s the number one element that prevents fulfilment in people.
Ever noticed how easy it is to find a reason NOT to do something you haven’t done before? Or to not attend a new event? Or to assume someone isn’t interested in buying from your business? Or that customers are focused on price?
All of these are expensive assumptions based on opinions, from experiences.
Experience come from decisions. Decisions are thoughts and thoughts determine actions and results.
Don’t like your results? Look at your thinking.
It all comes back to the 3 magic ingredients of success ALL super successful business people agree.
- Listening to audios,
- read books and,
- attend events (free or paid for seminars, business webinars, courses etc).
How can you access all these in your life to be more successful in business?
Ah, that’s the million dollar question!
There’s a little known business course online that ticks all these boxes of these success ingredients – and a whole lot more.
