With all the tools you can use to grow your business there is one underrated tool that most of us overlook. It has help propel many of your top earners from humble beginners to their success. Let’s see how we what this tool is and how it can really make a difference in your success…
“You can teach all the other stuff, you know. You can teach shooting the ball, you can teach having a good touch….passing and whatnot, but when you get out there on the field, it’s a mindset you need to go into the game with.” ~ Freddy Adu
A hammer is just a tool until you learn how to use it to your advantage. If you want to build something you have to figure out the best way to use it as well for the other tools.
If you want to build a doghouse, you first have to brainstorm. You want to come up with ideas on how it’s going to look, what wood and other parts will you use, what tools you’ll need, and which tools will work best for each step and angle.
You may have a picture in your mind and go off of this if you’re really creative, or you may need to picture that mental picture on piece so that you can go back and reference it. If you’re really good, you can create a blueprint with all the measurements you want so you have a more detailed picture of the doghouse.
If something was miscalculated, then you have to go back and think of a way to fix the problem. This is where you must become really creative and get those juices going. You always want to have more options in mind so that you have something to fall back on.
If you haven’t noticed, I focused mainly on your mind, the ideas and creativity that spring from it so that you can bring them to your reality. As far as business, yes we have so many online and offline tools to grow our businesses, but yet our minds, which is vital to our businesses, is the most underrated tool.
The Mind is the most underrated tool but yet the most vital tool to your success. Once you’re able to control your mind, meaning your thoughts, then you will have more control on reality.
It’s like trying to learn something new. A lot of us have a fear that keeps us from learning a school. This fear is the fear of making mistakes. But once we practice, coming in balance with this new skill, this fear tends to dissipate. Now we can do and know this skill like knowing the back of our hands.
But just practicing isn’t enough. You must overcome the mindset that holds you back and develop the mindset that pushes you forward. So what can we do?
This is a great way to clear your mind and be connected to your higher self. The self that knows no fears, but just is. It’s like clearing out your mind in order to prepare it to accept great, influential information that will propel you to success.
To me, if this is done everyday, it’s equivalent to being born everyday. This is great for all of us entrepreneurs. Whether we run into obstacles or successes, our minds will always be geared to move forward, becoming better as a whole each day.
I learned from listening to Kevin Trudeau’s “Your Wish Is Your Command” that taking walks is a healthy for your mind. Being exposed to the sun rays and looking far into the distance is like rejuvenated medicine.
What I usually do is take my ipod and listen to music. So many ideas have sprung from doing this simple thing. The different genre’s of music I believe keeps me diverse, open minded and connected. With the walks itself springs up idea after idea even if I don’t have my ipod.
When I think of doing yoga, I think of balance. Being balance with your mind, soul, and physical strength altogether. I just started taking it some 4 months ago and can tell a big difference in myself compared to years prior.
I was so against it at first, but at that time I didn’t understand it. But some years prior when I was having a lot of lower back problems, my chiropractor recommended that I start taking yoga class. It took me 7 years to do it, but finally did and now enjoy it. So don’t knock it until you try it!
When I think of having positive thoughts, I think of focusing on the things you want and/or want to do. When we focus on our passion, those negative thoughts tend to disappear quickly which I believe can’t reside in the same thought pattern. When you focus on the things you want, you get excited, and ideas start spring up on how you can achieve them.
Now It’s Your Turn!
