Think Winning Thoughts in Business!
Success in your career, or as a business owner, requires the same set of ‘inner game’ skills used to play a better round of golf in that it is mastery of YOU which takes everything to the next level.
Traditional goal setting looks like this…
It focuses on all the action parts including the steps, strategies, planning, plotting out, and what you must ‘do’ in order to eventually reach your target.
And yet seriously – what does it feel like along the way and through each one of those “next steps”? Almost nothing about the entire process is enjoyable.
If working towards our goals and building a successful business or having the career of our dreams is supposed to bring us happiness and a sense of pride then why does so much of trek suck and why do we give up?
While I am for sure a big hustle-to-make-it-happen person, graduating top of my class at The School of Git ‘Er Done, how many times have we all set out to acquire something we wanted only to sit and stare at our computer screen or notebook after we’ve put it all in writing (if we even get that far) after the initial high of the idea has worn off?
If achieving your goal was simply a matter of following a list of 1 through 10, wouldn’t you have what you wanted by now?
Do you ever wonder if there is something else going on that the more mainstream approach to the process of goal setting, and more importantly, goal achieving, neglects to mention?
I CALL B.S. BECAUSE IT’S. . .
your belief systems!
Just like the saying made famous by Henry Ford “If you believe you can, you’re right and if you believe you can’t, you’re right too” I guarantee that if you are not proactively pursing your goals, or keep getting close to realizing one of them, then mucking it all up, it’s because of something you believe, most often at a subconscious level.
Beliefs are a feeling of certainty about something. There are thoughts you are sure are ‘true’, and yet quite often are simply experiences which have been misinterpreted, then revisited so many times that it appears they are the truth.
In the most basic sense, any thought that is repeatedly thought becomes a belief. Do you “always lose out to other salespeople?” Do you “NEVER find any profitable accounts”? Beliefs are like directives to the mind – delivering the command to yourself on how to represent what is occurring, and in turn, you behave accordingly.
If you think of your mind as operating similar to a computer, you begin to understand how your experiences unfold the way they do. The memories you hold are like computer programs waiting to influence some event. Unfortunately, your computer mind is incredibly literal in its translation of the input that reaches it. Its performance depends at every moment on the precision of the instruction it receives.
It is more than the events of your life that shape you — it is your beliefs as to what those events mean. Often you are convinced that events control your life, however it is the meaning or how you explain the event that shapes who you are as a person and what you believe is possible for yourself.
Most beliefs are generalizations about your past, based on your interpretations of both painful and pleasurable experiences. It is — instead of what happens in your life — how you perceive it, and what you do about what happens that makes the difference. Each time you experience a significant amount of pleasure or pain your brain searches for the cause and records it in your nervous system to enable you to make decisions about what to do in the future.
What if there was an easier way to achieve your business and sales goals that actually helped you achieve them?
When you address the thoughts, feelings and beliefs required to have a successful career or business (or anything else you want in life), you make amazing progress AND enjoy the process because you’re clear about what is really going on along the way.
Empowering thoughts and the perspectives that will fuel your motivation naturally surface when the ones that are wreaking havoc on your goals are gone. By reconstructing beliefs and adjusting the balance between positive and negative, it will have a profound impact on everything you do and boost your level of achievement.
Upleveling or even completely reinventing your career or business isn’t so much about positive thinking as it is about changing beliefs that lead to negative thinking. How? I’m so glad you asked…
