In this first podcast of the year, I talk about the power of a positive (and negative) mindset and how this can, quite literally, make or break your business.
Mindset is not just some wishy-washy trend that comes and goes like a lot of the health and wellness fads these days because I guarantee you, behind every successful business is an entrepreneur with a winning positive mindset.
I’ll be discussing exactly what mindset is and how your thoughts directly influence your actions and behaviours.
I will also be teaching you 8 amazing strategies to grow your business with a positive mindset.
So tune in, because you’re going to come away from this episode with a lot of incredibly important tools and tips to implement into your own growth and development.
[02:15] Thoughts lead to feelings that lead to actions or behaviours. This is known as the cognitive triangle. If you want to change your behaviour, you have to change your thoughts.
[03:28] The law of attraction isn’t just as simple as sticking a picture of your dream car on your fridge and it magically appearing. However, positive thoughts really do influence positive behaviours that in turn, attract positive outcomes (and vice versa). The law of attraction is very real!
[4:53] Mindset and growth - You must learn to stretch yourself outside of your comfort zone in order to grow. There are three areas of your comfort zone (comfort zone, fear zone and learning zone). If you can learn to step outside of your comfort zone and into your learning zone, this is where you will start to acquire new skills and deal with challenges head on.
[6:44] Play small, stay small – If you think you’re not good enough to get better clients, you won’t.
[8:30] Mindset in your marketplace – Why confidence in yourself and the service you offer is key.
[9:54] Mindset and pricing – If you have the right mindset, you will learn how to confidently charge what you know you’re really worth.
[11:30] Mindset and teams – A leader with a strong, positive mindset is not threatened by recruiting the very best staff that they can afford.
[12:33] Mindset and learning – Having a positive mindset will enable you to quickly react to changes in the market and efficiently deal with any curveballs that are thrown your way.
