Is Your Mindset Keeping You From Reaching Your Dream?

Man shrugging shoulders

Everything I have achieved in my life has started as a thought in my head.

My thoughts have gotten me to where I am today.

And if I’m honest with myself …

My thoughts have held me back from achieving some of the goals I set for myself.

It has taken me a very long time to recognize the power of this simple reality.

If you believe the mindset experts, here’s how it works:

Thoughts generate feelings.

Feelings spur you to take action.

Action leads to results.

Your results will improve when you align your thoughts, your feelings, and your actions.

This, to me, is the key to managing your personal business mindset.

You may wonder …

Is your business mindset keeping you from your dream? Get the Think BIG Mindset Tune-Up. It's a free, fast way to get yourself back on track! #businessmindset #onlinebusinessWhat does your business mindset have to do with your success?

Here’s the thing …

You’re the engine behind your business.

You — and your drive, your goals, and your favorite source of caffeine 😉 — are the reason things move forward, right?

When your engine is in tip-top shape, it will help you get where you want to go faster and more smoothly.

Your business mindset impacts how you function on a very granular level.

When you feed yourself self-defeating thoughts, your engine will limp along. You may get somewhere, but you’ll never hit your full potential.

But when you feed yourself positive, affirming thoughts? Watch out world!

Let’s do a quick thought experiment

To prove my point, please read the following statements out loud.

  • “I don’t have the discipline to reach my goals.”
  • “It’s too late for me to have impact — my field is crowded with competitors.”
  • “I’m not ‘social’ enough to make an online business work.”
  • “Technology is changing faster than I can keep up with it.”
  • “I set goals but I always come up short.”

Now, tune into …

  • How you feel in your gut
  • How the rest of your body responds to hearing these statements
  • Whether you feel like getting to work and making progress after reading them

Yuck, right?

When you let these self-defeating thoughts run rampant in your head, you’re stopping your progress before it has a chance to start.

Let’s try the experiment again

Please read the following statements out loud.

  • “I get to work toward my goals every day.”
  • “The right people will find my unique voice even when the market is crowded.”
  • “I don’t have to be a social butterfly to make it online — there are plenty of introvert success stories!”
  • “I need minimal technology to make an impact online and I can find help for anything I don’t understand.”
  • “My goals fire me up and keep me moving forward week-by-week.”

Now, tune into …

  • How you feel in your gut
  • How the rest of your body responds to hearing these statements
  • Whether you feel like getting to work and making progress after reading them

Pretty awesome, right?

When you make positive statements about your abilities, you fuel your engine with the energy you need to do your most important work.

You deserve to have the energy and drive to get where you want to go.

And your business mindset is the key.

How to change the way you see your business

To shake off a mindset that’s keeping you small and holding you back, I recommend you think BIG.

Thinking BIG means amplifying your goals.

Think your goals are big enough already? I challenge you today to take them one step further.

Expect the best — and more — from yourself.

To help you think BIG, answer this simple (but profound) question:

What would your life be like if you were the most-respected person in your industry?Click To Tweet

The way you answer this deceptively simple question will help you adjust your thoughts, feelings, and actions so you can make a bigger impact with your business.

Grab the Think BIG Mindset Tune-Up (it’s free)

To make it easier to squeeze all the potential out of this simple question, I’ve developed the free Think BIG Mindset Tune-Up. 

It’s a worksheet that will help you explore all the aspects of this simple (but powerful) question, like how being the most-respected person in your industry would impact …

  • How you spend your time — during the work week and on the weekends
  • How you would behave as a business person
  • How you would show up in social media
  • What kind of team you might have
  • How you would dress, eat, and spend your free time
  • I’ll also give you a place to create a “power paragraph.” This power paragraph will be a statement you can use as an affirmation to guide you as you move toward your most-important goals.

Feeling some resistance? Watch this …

You may feel a lot of resistance around the idea of “being the best” or even “thinking BIG.”

I’m with you. Really.

Because guess what? You get to define your BIG. 

This is an essential belief here at BIG Brand System!

There’s not a single definition of BIG that works for all of us. (How boring would that be?)

Decide what’s important to you. If you were the most-respected person in your industry in a way that felt meaningful to you … what would your life be like?

You don’t have to become the most-respected person in your industry. This exercise is a means to an end — a way to increase your impact by thinking beyond where you may have thought before. But the truth is …

You don’t ever have to do anything sensational to have profound impact on the world.

Fred Rogers, in one of his last public statements before he left this earth in 2003, said it best:
