Successfully Shift Your Mindset

Many people don’t realize that the transition from an employee to an entrepreneur simply requires a shift in their mindset. You hear of people wishing and hoping that they could be out of their jobs and in their own business but either they don’t take the action to begin that endeavor or they start and then quit the venture too soon.

As with any undertaking, the only way to be successful at it is to have an impenetrable belief in it. Statistically, a huge amount of businesses fail in the first five years because of lack of belief. At some point entrepreneurs with an employee mindset don’t believe that they can continue and therefore the business dissolves.

A belief in something can be cultivated by simply finding evidence and proof that it is so. If in business is where you want to be then all you have to do is look around and see an exorbitant amount of thriving businesses. There’s all the evidence that you’d need to know that you can succeed if you want to.

The following are a few ways that one can begin to shift their mindset from one of an employee to one of an entrepreneur:

1. Clearly identify what it is that you want to accomplish. You need to know where you are going in order to get there.

2. Begin to recognize your limiting beliefs. What have you been telling yourself that has prevented you from getting to where you want to be in life?

3. Replace those nasty limiting beliefs with a total opposite statement. For example,
-- Limiting belief -- I don’t have any money to start a business.

-- New belief -- I am in control of my life, I will find the money to achieve my success.

4. Start to visualize the person you want to become. Take the time to really see yourself in this new light and it will surely become more real for you.

5. Persist without exception. Never, ever give up.

Once you begin the process of change you will gain momentum and that’s when the new beliefs takeover. Your mindset shifts and success just happens!
