On one hand your mind is your best asset to achieving success and on the other hand it can be a liability. In a split second, it tells you, go for it you can do it then, it tells you, you’re crazy if you think you can do that. In either case, whether you believe it or not you have control over what you believe to be true for your life and business. But, how do you know you’re making the right decisions when it comes to building the business of your dreams, if your mind seems to be playing tricks on you?
You must first understand that the negative chatter and self talk gets louder when you begin entering unfamiliar territory. Your mind doesn’t have a reference point for this new, unfamiliar territory so it responds with messages of doubt and fear. It wants to protect you from the bad that might happen. But the unknown is where your dreams come true and life is the sweetest. The unknown is where you learn to trust the plan, define success for yourself and allow your dreams to unfold.
So, how do you push forward when your mind is telling you to give up? Take action. It’s the quickest way to shift your mindset from doubt and fear to confident and fearless. You don’t have to go out and try to build your business in one day. You do something each day to move your dreams closer to becoming a reality. That’s how you build confidence and silence the negative committee that likes to take up residency rent free in your head from time to time.
