Who here can guess one of my FAVORITE topics that wasn't even on my RADAR when I was an early entrepreneur? If you guessed mindset, congratulations because you must know me well! Honestly, I didn't even acknowledge that it was a "thing" to pay attention to--I was all about just setting goals, checking off stuff on a to-do list, getting stuff done. Check, check, check! I didn't know what I didn't know, and I walked around in ignorance for a DECADE!!!
I didn't even hire my first mentor to teach me mindset--I just knew that I was frustrated with a long-standing income plateau in my online marketing business and I was close to burnout. I looked around at people who were having more fun while making a whole lot more money, and I thought, what do they know that I don't? I decided to hire one of them to help me figure that out.
Even allowing myself to pay someone to help me was huge, because I'd been telling myself I SHOULD be able to figure it out on my own, for FREE, for so long. BUT, as long as I kept doing that, I kept getting the same results--staying STUCK. Within 3 weeks of hiring my first mentor, my income tripled. I FINALLY had someone to help me spot and fix the areas and blind spots that I just hadn't been able to see on my own, as much as I got done and as capable as I was.
We all have expertise and we all have important messages to share--that's why you're here, right? So what is holding you back, and is that the same thing that's been holding you back for a while? If so, maybe it's time to consider getting mindset + strategic support from someone you're excited to learn from!
You already know what you need to know and you're already capable of sharing it right now. You're a high-achiever, after all! If you find yourself procrastinating or not following through, if you're not executing, if you don't have the results you want, if you're overwhelmed, freaked out about visibility, scared of failure...chances are good that it's a mindset issue.
The GOOD news is that with support, you can turn this around and discover confidence and clarity about your business and where you're going, and the path will become clear. I've seen it time and time and time again with my clients.
Now, do you believe in the importance of mindset? Why or why not? Or what's your biggest struggle when it comes to mindset? Or what part of your mindset are you feeling particularly good and strong about?
