What You'll Learn
A little different to my usual interview-style podcast today, and this applies not just to successful entrepreneurs but to all my listeners.
A recent conversation with a coaching client of mine inspired me to change things up a little bit after he’d suffered a blow to his business that threw him completely off track. So I thought I’d offer a virtual hug to listeners who might be struggling in a similar way.
I find that most new business owners that I talk to come up against this at some point. You feel trapped and stuck to the point of paralysis, not knowing what to do next to get motivated again.
It might help to know that you are not the only one that’s felt like this, thinking that everyone else is taking things easy while their business moves on effortlessly. I have! But instead of thinking “if only…” or blaming others for our misfortune, it’s within our own power to change things around very quickly.
One little word: Attitude
Believe it or not, problems are not problems unless our reaction to the event makes it a problem. Apart from tragic things like disease or natural disasters, we do have control over how things affect us. Don’t blame others; we ourselves are responsible for the circumstances we are in and only we can determine how we react to those circumstances – for better or worse!
In this episode, we will look at how a mindset shift can turn you from being a taker to a giver. We consider how a victim mentality gives nothing to anyone, especially not yourself. To be successful in business, we need to understand that helping people and giving value and generosity is what is most appreciated, “sharing the love” if you like, and will repay dividends.
Success comes from the inside-out – set a positive attitude to be worthy of a successful business.
Start from the inside-out – meaning it starts with us, not other people or forces around us.
Your inner world creates your outer world. Take risks. Focus on creating the biggest impact possible.
Maybe it seems daunting to leave your comfort zone but don’t sabotage your own potential! Don’t let anyone convince you that you can’t achieve great things.
To quote Robin Sharma, “Be the Mick Jagger of the mailroom!”
Your thinking and attitude can change your reality!
Start with awareness of your behaviour: respond, don’t react. A reaction is often a habit, and habits become an unconscious rather than a conscious choice of how you will respond – you do have a choice – it’s up to you to exercise it.
I hope this hits the spot with some of you and inspires you today.
The takeaway for this podcast is to keep in front of you the knowledge that what you do in this very moment is what shapes your reality.
