You are not alone. In my own way I’ve had to overcome so many of these mindsets myself. I believe it’s safe to say that several of us entrepreneurs will in some form or another experience at least one of these mindset blocks in our career lifetime. The mind is actually a powerful tool/weapon in our life. It’s no wonder that so many great entrepreneurs of our lifetime always discuss having the right “MINDSET.”
I love this very simple but significant quote:
You will say and do what you think about the most! -Dr. Caroline Leaf
Here are 3 COMMON MINDSET BLOCKS that I see amongst so many business owners.
2. “I DON’T HAVE THE SUPPORT.” This one actually breaks my heart because I know this feeling far to well. I know what it’s like to want something so bad and feel like no one can express the amount of support you need. The truth of the matter is, THIS IS YOUR DREAM, not theirs. Although so many people love you and will want to be supportive, they will not know the magnitude of the dream you have in your mind and heart. It’s best to stop waiting for someone to see what only you can see. So…how do we overcome the need to feel supported?
3. “I’M NOT LIKE THEM.” Also known as the COMPARISON GAME. If you compare your business to someone else-one of two things will happen and neither is ok: either you’ll get prideful and think you’re better, or you’ll get insecure and think you’re not good enough. Comparison is such an issue in our world and it’s no wonder -with social media being so ramped. So many entrepreneurs stay in the mindset that they can’t do it like so and so and therefore they don’t do it at all. There is also such a fear of doing it “wrong” or not good enough with all of the pressure of the views, the likes and the shares. So…how do we overcome the comparison game and get bold enough to show up on our platforms?
All of these MINDSET BLOCKS are impeding you from taking your business to the next level. Observe the one[s] you might be dealing with and press towards overcoming them. You have too much to do to spend your time focusing on the wrong things! Keep in mind Dr. Caroline Leaf’s quote. You will say and do what you think about most…let’s start thinking about the things we want to happen and spend less time thinking about the thoughts that stump our growth, shall we?
