Having your ‘Mindset for Success’ is vital for achieving your business vision and key business goals. Experience has reinforced my belief that a big part of success is mindset.

You can set your mind for success by making good thought processing a habit. In this post I’d like to communicate an example of ‘stinking thinking’, the impacts of it and share with you a simple and very effective model that I utilize with clients that will help you to create a ‘mindset’ that will empower you to generate more of the results that you in your business.

Just for a moment: Please open your mind to the following statement:

Your thoughts influence your emotions (feelings) your thoughts & feelings influence your actions and your actions/non actions – effect your results.

And once again because it’s important:

  • Your thoughts influence your feelings (emotions);
  • Your thoughts and feelings influence your actions;
  • Your actions/non-actions effects your results!

SO WHAT? – So let’s use a business example and let’s pretend that:

You’re a Business Owner and responsible for driving sales in your company and your current thought processing is:

No one’s buying, there’s a recession, what’s the point – they’ll just say no anyway, everyone’s struggling……..

How would you be feeling thinking that way?

I am assuming – unmotivated, flat, anxious, worried, stressed…

So thinking and feeling that way – What revenue generation actions are you likely to take?

I am assuming – not making sales calls, not following up, not asking for the sale, in other words – complete in-action!

And if there is complete inaction …… What could the results be?

I am assuming – you will not make your revenue targets for the week, month, and year. I am assuming a result will be stress caused by worry because no matter what you do you’ve still got fixed expenses to pay and another result may be you beating yourself up, labelling yourself as a failure and the result of that is even more lost self-esteem…

Where will this thought processing take you and your business?

If you’re currently caught up in ‘stinking thinking’….. What do you do? How do you break the loop?

Right now…. You grab a pen/paper and you work backwards by answering these questions:

  • What results do I really want in my business?
  • What will accomplishing these results really give me?
  • What actions can I take to generate these results?
  • In order to be taking those actions….How do I need to be feeling?
  • In order to be feeling that way…..How would I need to be thinking about myself, my business and my customers?

Then consciously choose to think that way consistently, make it your number 1 priority right now because when you change your thinking you will change your results!
