How To Create A Strong Positive Attitude & Catapult Your Business Success
By creating a strong positive attitude and mindset, it is possible to catapult your business
When the TOP 10% of business achievers in the UK and the US are repeatedly asked the question:-
“What do they put their business success down to?”
The vast majority consistently answer that a ‘STRONG POSITIVE ATTITUDE’ is the key.
Harvard Business School has repeatedly reported that there is NO CORRELATION between GRADES and ACHIEVEMENT for their students who leave the Business School – it is shown that ACHIEVEMENT is 80% POSITIVE ATTITUDE and 20% ABILITY.
The Top 10% Have A Strong Positive Business Mind & A Strong Positive Attitude
The top 10% of the most successful entrepreneurs in business all have a Strong Positive Business Mind and Strong Positive Attitude and this allows them to THINK and ACT in a different way to how the rest in business THINK and ACT.
I call this SMART BUSINESS THINKING and SMART BUSINESS ACTIONS.
By having a STRONG POSITIVE BUSINESS MIND and STRONG POSITIVE ATTITUDE, the top 10% of successful entrepreneurs are able:-
To use the POWER OF THOUGHT, POSITIVE THINKING & SMART BUSINESS THINKING in everything
To work SMARTLY & to use SMART BUSINESS ACTIONS RIGHT
To work more EFFICIENTLY & in a more EFFECTIVE way
To work in a more ORGANIZED way
To work by setting OBJECTIVES & GOALS
To work in a highly FOCUSED way
To achieve MORE in LESS TIME and with LESS EFFORT
To be more RELAXED & to work with LESS STRESS
To move forward by ACHIEVING TARGETS
To ENJOY their work more & to be HAPPY in it
To be VERY SUCCESSFUL
The top 10% of all entrepreneurs are able to THINK in far more creative, far more analytical and far more innovative ways that lead to really SMART BUSINESS ACTIONS. They have highly organized minds that allow them to be highly efficient and effective, achieving more in less time with less stress.
Their MINDSETS allow them do whatever it takes to push their businesses on, even if it means taking them far outside their comfort zones. Their minds are very positive and they know how to deal with setbacks and failures, never letting these hold them back. They are incredibly optimistic and they have an intense belief in their ability to be successful and they have enormous determination to achieve all their objectives and goals.
Acute FOCUS on every part of their businesses then results and this allows them to project themselves and their businesses to great heights of business success.
A Strong Positive Business Mind & A Strong Positive Attitude Must Come First
Before you can achieve GREATER BUSINESS SUCCESS, you must first create a STRONG POSITIVE BUSINESS MIND & MENTAL ATTITUDE.
Use The Power Of Thought To Create A Strong Positive Business Mind
You can build a STRONG POSITIVE BUSINESS MIND by harnessing the POWER OF THOUGHT – this is the ENGINE that drives the THINKING PROCESS.
Napoleon Hill in his best selling 1939 book ‘THINK & GROW RICH’ says that “YOU BECOME WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT” In essence, it means that if YOU THINK something enough, your subconscious mind accepts the THOUGHT and it then becomes possible to become that THOUGHT.
Many of the most successful entrepreneurs have used this technique to become a BUSINESS SUCCESS and to BECOME RICH; each one has decided they wanted to become a BUSINESS SUCCESS and to become RICH and, through THINKING repeatedly that they would become RICH, they have actually become RICH.
The MIND and the BRAIN are both very POWERFUL and when the BRAIN accepts the concept of being RICH, it then looks for ways that RICHES can be acquired. Ideas and opportunities to become RICH come flooding into the BRAIN. The top 10% successful entrepreneurs then take the best opportunities and use them to create wealth.
This might sound simplistic but it DOES ACTUALLY WORK and it works by ‘PROGRAMMING THE MIND’
It Changes Your Thinking
Programming the mind works in TWO WAYS:-
HOW YOU THINK
WHAT YOU THINK
HOW most successful entrepreneurs THINK is different to HOW others in business THINK but also WHAT they THINK is different, too. This allows them to THINK in a highly CREATIVE way and allows them to think ‘OUTSIDE THE BOX’
This creates some very EFFECTIVE ACTIONS within their businesses.
In Business, There Are Many Challenges
In business, there are many challenges and often failure can be a reality. The FEAR OF FAILURE and STEPPING OUTSIDE THE COMFORT ZONE can hold many entrepreneurs back. Many don’t BELIEVE enough in their future BUSINESS SUCCESS – they have doubts about their ability to be SUCCESSFUL and they have doubts that they can really make significant progress in their businesses.
Many entrepreneurs are running average businesses but lack the courage to attempt to take their businesses to a higher level because they are uncertain of the outcome and more happy to stay with the ‘status quo’ rather than risk what they already have.
Many of these entrepreneurs are experiencing a mental ‘block’ that is stopping them moving forward in their businesses. It is possible to unblock ‘the block’ through the POWER OF THOUGHT and WHAT IS THOUGHT.
But when the mind is ‘unblocked’ changes do happen, creating MORE POSITIVE THOUGHTS and MORE POSITIVE ACTIONS.
This process is equivalent to PROGRAMMING THE MIND and YOU can do the same by saying to yourself two STRONG messages, time and time again; these thoughts will PROGRAM your mind to UNBLOCK YOUR MIND and to conquer many of your CHALLENGES.
You Can Program Your Mind
You can PROGRAM your mind to believe in your ability to be successful with TWO powerful messages:-
“I AM A SUCCESS”
“I CAN DO THIS”
The key to achieving SUCCESS is to BELIEVE in your SUCCESS.
By saying “I AM A SUCCESS” repeatedly over and over, YOU will start to THINK that YOU are a SUCCESS, even though YOU have NOT actually achieved SUCCESS up to that point. After about a month, YOU will feel MORE POSITIVE and YOU will THINK more about the ways that YOU can drive your business forward.
To help the process, I recommend YOU print a poster for your office wall to aid YOU AFFIRMING this.
When YOU start to look at the WAYS that YOU can take your business forward, YOU will probably start to have further doubts and your MIND may tell YOU:
“I CAN’T DO THIS”
When this happens, YOU must dispel this thought and say:
“I CAN DO THIS”
And, YOU must continually keep THINKING this.
Again a poster for your office wall will help with your AFFIRMATION.
Change Your Thinking & Use The Power Of Thought
Think now about BEING RICH and keep repeating to yourself:-
“I AM A SUCCESS”
“I CAN DO THIS”
Gradually, you will start to feel more positive and have a greater belief in your ability to take your business to the next level.
Think How Happy You Would Feel
To help YOU, THINK also what the BENEFIT to your business would be of doing a certain thing for your business. YOU could ask yourself another question:
“HOW HAPPY WOULD I BE WITH MYSELF IF I ACHIEVE THIS?”
The chances are YOU would be VERY HAPPY with yourself for achieving something that meant YOU STEPPING OUTSIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE – especially if YOU can see a real BENEFIT for your business and your business makes progress as a result.
This should then give YOU confidence to do more.
Keep Your Thoughts Positive
Another thing YOU can do is to keep all your THOUGHTS POSITIVE and this helps to create a STRONG POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE. For me, if a NEGATIVE THOUGHT comes into my mind, I KICK IT OUT and I replace it with a GOOD, POSITIVE THOUGHT; I think of my family and friends and other good things in my life.
YOU should do the same.
The next part of the process is to create GOALS for what YOU want to achieve in your business; these should be short, medium and long term GOALS.
GOAL SETTING is incredibly important for maintaining the right mindset and for achieving business success. The most successful entrepreneurs in business all use GOAL SETTING and they always work hard to achieve their goals.
Each goal achieved propels the business forward and by continually setting and achieving goals, the most successful entrepreneurs are continually making progress.
Goal Setting Creates Intense Focus
The process of GOAL SETTING creates intense FOCUS which, in turn, creates DETERMINATION, PERSISTENCE, DRIVE, OPTIMISM and PASSION making it possible to do whatever is necessary in the business including STEPPING OUTSIDE THE COMFORT ZONE and combating the FEAR OF FAILURE.
SUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEURS don’t FEAR FAILURE; importantly, many have experienced FAILURE and SETBACKS. They view SETBACKS as part of the learning process and part of the process of achieving business success.
Each successful entrepreneur learns from each experience and each never repeats the same mistakes. Each successful entrepreneur is very resilient and they don’t linger on the setbacks. They shrug off the setback and get moving forward again, quickly.
The result is that SUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEURS make QUICK and SMART DECISIONS, eliminating PROCRASTINATION. SMART BUSINESS ACTIONS are the result; these actions drive their businesses forward and generate greater profits.
The TOP 10% most successful business entrepreneurs have all of the above and if YOU can replicate them, then YOU will be SUCCESSFUL, too.
You Should Aspire To Acquire The Qualities Of The Most Successful Entrepreneurs
The most successful business entrepreneurs all consistently have the same qualities and YOU should aspire to achieve the same qualities. Here are the main ones:-
BURNING DESIRE FOR BUSINESS SUCCESS
HUGE BELIEF IN THEIR BUSINESS SUCCESS
GREAT EXPECTATION OF THEIR BUSINESS SUCCESS
BIG BELIEF IN THEIR BUSINESS ABILITY
