The minute you felt called upon to seek out your freedom and prosperity through entrepreneurship or running your own home based business, what kind of thoughts and emotions flooded your mind?
Did you immediately feel totally confident that this would be the turning point of your life where you get to design life on your own terms and create your version of heaven on earth?
Or did you get filled with a sense of worry and overwhelm over whether or not you have what it takes to make such a huge thing happen?
For most people it’s always a little bit of everything… That’s why I am making this little article for you because I want to make sure that you don’t get stuck halfway through your rise into greatness and success.
If you know that becoming an entrepreneur and being independently wealthy is the reality that most suits you, then you certainly need to read through and gain better clarity as to how you can handle those voices and emotions of distress that will try to keep you stuck in the old way of life.
Why you need a change of mindset now
Most of humanity has been conditioned into a level of conscious awareness that has set the “normal standard” too low. For most success seekers, the dominant thoughts that saturate their days are those of worry, insecurity and fear.
This my dear reader is like getting into a battle that’s already been lost before it even begins because all external results and yes, that includes your business as well, can only come about if the level of consciousness and mindset you dwell in, is one that’s set on “success”.
When you already doubt whether or not you can win and gain victory in this endeavor, when you always feel like you’re not enough or that you don’t have enough, you are actually create a self-fulfilling prophecy that will come to confirm the secret beliefs that you carry.
You need to believe that you can succeed.
It’s important that you believe not only in the truth that you are capable of prospering but that you will produce the harvest that you want.
The level of your self-confidence will determine your level of productivity and your self-confidence plainly reveals how much you believe in Self.
When you believe in yourself you will always give yourself the chance to make things right because you know that you can make things better and that you do have something valuable to give to the world.
That faith and confidence that is very crucial for an entrepreneur can only come through a renewal of the mind and that’s why you cannot afford to postpone the study and retraining of your mind while you grow your business.
It is the winner’s mindset that we all need to cultivate in our lives, especially for those of us who didn’t grow up in abundant, prosperous environments.
I have created more resources and a video that explains what a mindset is and how you can effortlessly shift it, which I encourage you to check out but as of now, here are just three big ideas that will help you realize the kind of mindset you’ve currently got as well as how to start shifting it.
1. Start becoming aware of- what you are noticing and paying attention to – in your world:
Recognize whether or not you have self-defeating thoughts. What kind of an outlook do you have about life and entrepreneurship? Do you approach it with the expectation of overwhelm, struggle, pain?
What kind of things are you noticing as you go about your daily routine?
What kind of forums, communities and engagements are you having?
Are you noticing more prosperity or lack in your business?
Negativity and pessimism are like migraines and are quite difficult to ignore because they constantly nag at you. Sometimes these thoughts can be quite overwhelming and easy to recognize. However some people have become so accustomed to them and having created coping mechanisms, barely realize that they dwell in negativity and pessimism.
The best way to start recognizing where you stand is by keenly observing the words you use, the conversations you engage in, the actions that are subconsciously playing out and the way you predominantly feel throughout the day.
I have met a lot of clients who say they are positive and use affirmations yet halfway through our conversations all they speak of is what they don’t have and how much of a struggle life is.
This is certainly a pattern to watch out for because if you get so used to lying to yourself by pasting affirmations on your intellect and yet dwelling in negativity subconsciously, you might think that the universal laws or other people are to blame for your struggles and failure when in truth, it’s all coming from your mindset.
2. Learn to condition your mind by focusing on a specific desire.
Choosing, defining and living from your true desires is so powerful and paramount when you decide to seek out a liberating lifestyle.
This is because it means you stepping out of the norm that you were taught and raised with, to pursue your uniqueness and individuality.
There is great power in that! Which is why I only work with individuals who want to create a passion business, because I realized that even for myself, the only reason I overcame the African slum life and started creating success and prosperity was because I was passionate and in love with an idea.
If you don’t know what your passionate about, do something about it. If your entrepreneurship isn’t yet aligned with your passion and purpose, do something about it – you’ll be amazed how quickly things will shift in your world once you live from your true desires.
3. Learn to take risks and enjoy them
Most of us are so afraid of risks because we are working with false ideas about who we are and how life works.
When you learn the truth about your real identity, the role you play in life and how life really works, taking risks that you enjoy won’t sound so ridiculous or illogical.
Now, I can get into great details here just with this one tip and in fact I do in one of my training classes and a report I made on how to create massive breakthroughs as an entrepreneur, but just know this…
It’s very important that you learn the value of taking risks; taking a step toward something when you don’t really know where your foot is going to land, and doing so with full confidence that it can only turn out right.
This doesn’t mean being silly, or doing it recklessly while still ignorant of the principle of life. It’s why we first teach on what the principle of life is and how you can align with Spirit so that your mind can be conditioned rightly.
Then and only then will you know in the depths of your soul that you were born to be a risk taker and in fact all the good stuff that you want in life will come by very quickly when you stop tip-toeing through life looking for safety.
An entrepreneur who’s looking for safety is sure to be highly disappointed because without this ability to have a well-governed mindset that knows how to take great risks and enjoy them, massive success and prosperity will not become a daily reality.
