Sometimes, solopreneurs/entrepreneurs don’t know the right business steps to take. They ask themselves questions, such as:
“Should I offer new products or change existing ones?
“Should I hire additional staff?
“Should I raise my rates?
“Should I look for new, bigger, better opportunities?
But, and this is a BIG BUT, their subconscious mind kicks in (and the subconscious mind is vastly stronger than their logical, conscious mind) has too many fears and doubts and that’s what keeps them stuck. They feel so much safer in their current comfort zone, even though it’s not perfect for them. There are a lot of different reasons for this, and I’m going to focus on one of them for this posting.
A current client, Karen, recently had a mindset problem that was stalling the growth of her business. Here’s what she thought:
“…I start making money and then I loose my focus….”
If Karen logically wants to make money, but is holding on to this belief that something will take her off course when she does, that is what will happen. Our thoughts attract our experiences. That’s why it’s so important to get your thoughts aligned with what you want.
This is a simple saying, but weights heavy with wisdom: “Thoughts become things…choose the good ones!”.
When you’re got that internal “tug-of-war” going on, nothing will happen. That’s one of the reasons you get off course with road blocks and diversions!
As we worked together to release her old way of thinking, Karen came to understand that was an old internal program, it didn’t have to be her present reality. She could now make money and stay focused on good things happen. That became her new experience. Karen continued to make money and new opportunities and clients came to her. She recently raised her rates and is making more every month. She is now excited about making more money and the new possibilities that happen along with that.
If you’re feeling stuck with your own business growth, here are 3 Success Tips to help you get “unstuck”:
- Ask yourself these questions : What is the downside of being more successful? What am I afraid could happen? Make a list of each of these things.
2. Objectively, look at each item and see if it has merit. Do you really believe it? If it doesn’t, cross it off the list.
3. Look at the remaining items, and work towards clearing out those negative beliefs and replacing them with positive beliefs. I highly recommend using Tapping as it is the fastest way I know to make these mindset changes. I’m highly certified in this technique. It’s what I used for Susan and what I use with everyone who works with me to help them get very fast results.
