As entrepreneurs the most important piece to our success is the ability to acquire clients, in order to make a good income that sustains our lifestyle and helps us grow our business even more. However, the most challenging part of growing a business is not figuring out the newest marketing strategies or how to effectively inspire potential customers to say yes to our offers, the most challenging part is having the mindset for success.
Many entrepreneurs struggle with the mindset around all these strategies, they struggle with the fears of possibly being rejected, or possibly failing, they also often times fear the very success they so desire. They are often operating on autopilot, driven by their inner gremlins that sabotage their success as a means to stay safely within their comfort zone which then results in frustration, overwhelm, and possibly even giving up the journey to becoming highly successful.
Some might say that the most important piece to success are the marketing, sales and client acquisition strategies but all these strategies, even though they are very necessary and a vital piece to success, they are not the most important piece, it is the mindset behind all these strategies that determine the success we as entrepreneurs allow ourselves to achieve, it also determines the amount of money we allow ourselves to earn with our business.
If you invest a lot of your financial resources into marketing, sales or learning the newest and most fanciest client acquisition strategies available these days, but deep down you question if you are really good enough, you question if you deserve to make money doing what you love, or if you fear how your life will change once you became successful, all these negative or limiting believes, and self-doubts, are what will sabotage your success; and no matter how much money you invest in marketing strategies, or other client acquisition strategies, they will not give you the results you desire because your mindset is not in alignment with what you say you want to accomplish, the success you say you desire.
Often times the things that you are “doing” to get the word out, to market yourself and your business, to get clients, to make more sales, are not the determining factor to your success, the one key ingredient that matters most is who you need to become in order to create the success you desire.
If you are struggling to make more money with your business, it is quite possible that you are operating based on a limiting money story that you keep telling yourself such as, “making money is hard”, “getting clients is difficult”, “I have to work really hard just to come by”, “Money doesn’t grow on trees”, or “I don’t think I can make money with doing what I love”. Can you see how this type of thinking can limit yourself from earning a decent income with your business or attract more clients you can serve?
Our beliefs about the things we struggle with today, are believes we picked up early on in life and made it our truth, but in reality these beliefs are illusions, lies that we have been telling ourselves to keep us safely within our comfort zone because success can be uncomfortable at first, making a lot of money with something we love seems just too good to be true, and what if we might fail? Then we would be considered a “failure” and we would feel pretty lousy.
However, all these beliefs are our self-made limitations that we live by, thinking we can’t do something because for whatever reasons, but are these believes and self-made limitations really true? Or are they just means to protect ourselves from potential failures, disappointments, or even hurts?
In order to break free from your self-made limitations and illusions which sabotage your success, notice what they are, and see them for exactly what they are – limitations you set for yourself, illusions and lies you have been telling yourself to keep yourself save, to stay within your comfort zone, but once you break free from your illusions, from those lies, and step out of your comfort zone you will be able to create all the success you desire, you will be able to manifest your wildest dreams and create heaven on earth.
Be open to the possibilities that are available to you, set yourself free from those illusions and step out of your comfort zone! What is the worst that could happen? You learn valuable lessons? You grow both personally and professionally? You create amazing success for yourself and create the life and business of your dreams?
Know that anything is possible for you as long as you believe and trust in your own ability to create the life and business you desire.
