Oftentimes I am asked about the mindset needed to be successful in business.
Whether you’re a CEO of a national company, a cashier at a grocery store, or an up-and-coming artist in the music world, YOU, are divine and have the birthright to truly live the life you desire.
But often, with that comes fear, uncertainty, and uneasiness. Or what I like to call dis-ease.
I say it that way, rather than disease, because when your body is not at ease, there’s a dis-connect, no?
Follow me here for a moment…
Over the next several minutes, we’ll take a look at the dictionary definition for more of the scientific proof, then I’ll dive into my thoughts around why it makes sense and what it means for you.
Mindset to be successful in business
To be in any business, you get to have the mindset of an entrepreneur.
Without that, you’ll have momentum to a degree and then you’ll slip away from it because your attitude around it wasn’t there.
An entrepreneur has qualities that others do not have; three of those I want to discuss specifically.
Developing your mindset and skills around your business, your goals, and your desires comes with three steps: decision, commitment, and discipline.
Most people think they are one in the same, and I’d beg to differ on that.
They go hand in hand, yes, but their meanings are radically different.
A decision is simply a conclusion or resolution reached after consideration.
It’s not just saying do I like the color purple or pink, it’s deciding it’s based on your chosen evidence for where you want to go.
A decision erases all other options.
It’s like the burning the boat story.
If you were in your boat, going towards an island, and you wanted to live there – that’s your decision – you would burn the boat.
Does that sound extreme? Maybe it should.
Why would you keep the boat if you decided to live on your island? A just in case, a simple back up plan, a crutch…
But all that back up plan would do to you would be to hold you back.
It wouldn’t do anything FOR you. There would be no benefit in making a decision.
If you’re going to decide on something, you GET to leave all else behind.
Notice, as always, I chose the words “get to” instead of “have to.”
You don’t “have to” do anything.
And when you truly decide on something, the energy impact for that decision is in the get to; whether that’s becoming more, embracing your true desires, or even increasing your faith.
If you don’t, then did you truly decide?
Commitment is the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause or activity.
It’s also an engagement or obligation that restricts freedom of action.
Now, I want to point out something here in the choosing of words within this definition.
Some may look at the word “restrict” and say, “nope, not doing that – I don’t want it to bind me – I want to choose and not be held down.”
However, I want to suggest that the word restriction here is actually EMPOWERING for you.
If you made a clear decision, your commitment would in fact restrict you from going elsewhere.
And another example, saying “obligation” is you putting you, your desires and goals first – not doing it for someone else.
You get to be obligated to you. You get to choose you. How beautiful is that?
If you knew success was guaranteed, you’d decide and you’d be fully committed.
Your faith would surpass all else. You wouldn’t listen to naysayers, doubt, or anxiety.
You’d move forward with your divine trust, not looking back.
Spoiler: YOUR success IS guaranteed. Most people just don’t choose to believe that.
Discipline is the practice of obeying rules or a code of behavior.
For me, discipline is what comes naturally and with ease after you make that committed decision.
It’s giving yourself a command and following it.
Your heart, your passion, your results are up to you, nobody else.
You say what happens.
Your results are there as evidence for what types of decisions, commitments, and disciplined behavior you’ve embodied.
Another way to look at this is passionate persistence.
When you’re passionately persistent about something, you again, don’t listen to naysayers, doubt, or anxiety.
You pull yourself through.
You embrace your end result and act like that person now – passionately persistent.
Choices & Results
When a person is indecisive, it shows up in their world, everywhere they turn… which then causes confusion and anxiety.
Again, that dis-ease.
Your body has to be at ease in order to obtain and conquer results you desire. The body is constantly moving.
We live in an ocean of motion.
You’re either growing or you’re disintegrating.
Which will you choose?
Growth or death.
Scaling or stagnant.
Excitement or anxiety
One of those options is freeing, it’s captivating, and it’s desired… yet most people choose the opposite.
For some reason it’s “natural” for most people to step back into fear, not commit to something, or listen to people who aren’t supporting them.
How long would you let yourself stay that way?
Probably longer than needed.
I’m here to tell you that you can pull yourself from that.
You CAN BE better, do better, and have better. It’s a decision.
Commit to yourself that you’ll be disciplined in your goals, your passions, and your visions.
Without a vision, there’s no growth.
I invite you to think about what goals you have that you’ve not been decisive on. Once you make the decision, there is no turning back.
When there’s only one goal in mind, you ARE committed to those obligations, you find yourself restricting old, unproductive habits, and then you are following your commands without question.
It’s an empowering place to be. I’m there now and I want you along for the ride.
