Do you think you can?
If you do, then….you can! If you don't…..well, you're right again!
Henry Ford said something similar to that years ago and he was right! The mind is such a powerful tool that it can literally shape your success or your failure!
Don't dismiss what you think as phooey or nonsense. Your mind is your most powerful ally. With it you can literally conquer all, but without it (if it is consumed by negative thoughts) you will not get to the top!
In the beginning of my online career I was desperate to work from home and to create an income that would provide for me and my girls. I felt stuck in my life and in my teaching profession and I didn’t know where to turn.
I didn’t feel supported at home and whenever I came up with an idea for my business it was always met with ridicule. I couldn’t stand being told how stupid I was and how my ideas were bound to fail so I stopped talking about them. In the end I started doubting myself and I began to believe that I really couldn’t do anything! I wasn’t worthy of success.
My mind and I were not working together.
When I plucked up the courage to start up my website I looked for support from people online. I didn't really talk about it at home, I kept it quiet. I found other entrepreneurs who were the same as me and who wanted me to succeed. They encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and into my greatness.
These people knew that my success didn't cost them anything. In fact, by supporting me they made a friend in me that will always stand by them too.
In the beginning it was hard. My confidence in myself and my abilities was shot and each time I received an email from a client I was scared to open it! Worried that they were writing to tell me that I was rubbish and that they were disappointed in me. It took time to build new confidence and faith in myself and my business. It wasn’t an easy process but the relationships that I had built online kept me a float.
I followed many amazing and great mentors online and looked to them for inspiration when I needed it. Their wisdom and their faith in themselves gave me, and still gives me, something more to strive for. My excellence will not come alone, I have to guide it.
Without a positive 'I can do it' attitude you will never succeed. Have you ever wondered why you fall off the wagon, why you fail?
Why, when things in your business are not going according to plan, you start doubting yourself and looking for new business opportunities. Do you do that? Do you blame the business when things are not going so well?
Blame the recession?
Blame somebody, anybody but yourself?
You need to train your mind, train it for success.
Positive thinking, reminding yourself daily that you deserve success. Thinking that if you carry on you will become stronger, better, more successful.
Planning for your business success and executing the plan, daily.
Take a good look at your business and honestly answer the question. "Is it my business that is weak, or is it me?"
If the answer is you then congratulations! You can still turn this around. Stop asking "Can I do this?" and start asking "What do I need to do to make this happen?"
Once you do things in your life will change!
