Mindset is Everything. And it is often the missing piece of your success formula – because if you subconsciously don’t believe you can have a sustainable business, you will keep manifesting feast or famine and that is a cycle I KNOW you want to get out of (because I’ve been there myself).
This is the thing marketers forget to tell you about growing a profitable and sustainable business with a steady influx of clients and profit, but don’t worry I am breaking it down for you today.
The truth: 85-90% of the success in our business is based on your mindset, your attitude, and your beliefs.
If you aren’t where you want to be, or are struggling and having inconsistent income; the likelihood is 99% that your mindset is to blame.
I am sharing with you best mindset hacks so you can stop worrying and start attracting, starting right now.
Warning: For this to be effective it needs to be done everyday and develop a practice out of it. Once you start, things will change rapidly but awareness is the first step to being able to change it. Let’s dive in!
Daily Practice – Commit to a DAILY practice that will raise your vibration and put you in the state of receiving all that you want. But remember, this has to be done daily to reprogram your old beliefs. You can’t just do it once or a few times a week and expect it to have amazing results. Your daily practice can include some of the things I mention here, like journaling and gratitude, or it can be meditation, prayer, yoga, etc. You can do whatever you want as long as it shifts your vibe/feelings and you commit to being consistent with it.
Journaling – This has been my secret sauce for the last two years. Each and every day without fail, I write out my entire life vision. I write in the present tense as if I already have it, and also in the past tense as if it’s already done. The most important part here is to have total clarity around what you want and desire. Be clear on what you want to happen and how you want it to feel. I go through every area of my life- business, finances, relationships, body, opportunities and feelings.
Gratitude – If you haven’t done any mindset work before or if you’re a little rusty, gratitude is always a really great place to start. Just ask yourself “What is amazing about my life right now?”. This is an easy place to start because it’s reflective, you can look at the things that are great- house, car, family, clients, money in the bank, your fans/followers and have immense appreciation and celebration for what you already have. In addition, I also give thanks for things that I don’t have… YET. It’s a great way to future pace since you are already in high vibe from your gratitude practice, and the best part is, your brain doesn’t recognize the difference between what you have now and what you don’t have yet, all it knows is that you are feeling amazing.
Catch and Switch – When you’ve been doing the same things for a long time, having the same beliefs, it’s easy to fall into old patterns. The key is to create awareness and shift your mindset. It’s not horrible to have a bad thought, but you can’t stay there. You have to have incredible awareness when you start on a downward spiral and be able to stop yourself and look for the good in the situation or shift your mindset to positive. This is what I have dubbed the catch and switch.
Smash your invisible income ceiling. Most people are operating with set limits or some sort of invisible ceiling on their income. In my first year of business, I certainly was. I was comfortable around the $40K mark because that was my typical salary when I was working a job. It’s no wonder why I made $35,000 in my first year. That was my cap! Once, I was able to recognize that and work towards obliterating that limit, I increased my revenue from one year to the next by 1400%! I went from making $35K to $500K in one year, and now there are no limits. We only get what we believe we deserve. We all have the potential to be where we want to be.
And the bottom line is that when you aren’t hitting your exact income goals month after month, you are losing. If your goal is to have a $10k month and for you only make $5k, in 3 months you’ve lost $15k. The most expensive thing in your business is the money you aren’t making.
Environment – Having support on this entrepreneur journey is key. It’s too easy to fall back into a negative mindset when you are around people who don’t believe in you or what you are doing. Changing your environment can be the hardest or the easiest thing you can do for your frequency. It is so important to have people around that would lift you up and who believe in you and what you’re doing. Connect with others who have already been there, or who are going where you are going. Hang around those who are making the income you want and/or have the things you want. You are truly the sum of the 5 people you hang out with most, so choose wisely.
