So here’s a question for you today. How is your mental game? I was talking with a new client yesterday and we were going over the goals that he’s set out for his business and they’re very aggressive goals based on where he starting from and he asked me the question, do you think it’s possible? And I responded to him, of course it’s possible. You’re going to have to be aggressive to hit those goals. Then he asked me, is it a one year or two year goal? And I said, again, that’s all determined by how aggressive you are in pursuing those goals, which brought him to this part of the conversation. He said to me, admittedly, I’m not sure if I am capable of putting together those types of numbers. And so I spoke to him about this topic, that when it comes to your success in business, in life as an entrepreneur or really pretty much any other area of your life, it’s about 90% mindset and belief and it’s about 10% skillset.
You can have all the skills in the world. You can have all the best marketing in the world. You can have the best business plan in the world, but if you don’t believe in your ability to execute, if you don’t believe that you’re the kind of person who can handle those types of numbers, that type of success, you’ll be absolutely 100% correct. You won’t be able to handle it. Part of what has to happen is we have to raise our thermostat. We have to raise our level of belief. The easiest way to do that is to begin building successes and then building on top of those successes.
What you find is most people have a belief thermostat, particularly when it comes to the areas of financial achievement or business achievement or relationship achievement, and what you have to do is you have to begin building a larger structure of belief underneath those areas of your life, and when you’re doing that, then you’re able to certainly increase your capacity and the things you’re able to accomplish. I hope you find that helpful, and I will talk to you again soon.
