The Power of Positive Thinking
and Your Business
We all know the phrase “power of positive thinking,” but have you ever thought about how it plays out in the success of your business?
It's HUGE and the more you can shift your mind to think positively, the more success you will find.
We all make mistakes and sometimes things just go wrong. Some people let it get them down. Successful business owners will say a mistake is not such a big deal and they'll figure out how to deal with it.
It's true that some people get mad at our mistakes and that can be upsetting. Customers get irate and we can let the upset us or we can look at those angry people and realize that anger is their issue and not ours. Most of our customers are kind and understanding people who will roll through those blips with us…and those are the customers we want anyway. The angry ones can move along and project on someone else, as far as I'm concerned.
I've always been of the mind that EVERY PROBLEM HAS A SOLUTION and we can get through anything.
Anytime you can encounter something difficult in your business, don't get upset because things are going to happen. Instead, realize that it's a temporary setback and figure out how you can work around it.
For example, what do you do if product isn't going to be ready for launch?
Reevaluate and adjust your plan, so you can keep your launch date and release a viable product. Perhaps, you'll do some live training instead of writing or recording everything ahead of time. Perhaps, you'll drip feed some content. There are ALWAYS ways to figure things out.
Never tell yourself or anyone that you're having BAD DAY.
There are 24 hours in a day…it can't all be bad. I've definitely had challenging days and in the middle of it all, I might be a bit frazzled, but when you ask me at the end of the day how it was, I'll probably say it was pretty decent…because all the challenging stuff is behind me and in the midst of it all, some pretty awesome things happened.
Because every day is filled with things I can appreciate. Whether it's a beautiful sunset, the mountain view as I drive in traffic over the bridge, my 16 year old who texts me to say he loves me or my friend who sends me a really funny joke that makes me laugh so hard, I cry. Every day has these little things that add up.
So what about when you're about to try something new and you get worried you'll totally screw it up?
We've all been there, but that kind of thinking is pure self-sabotage. If you say that to yourself, you'll probably hold back in your efforts or you won't do it all. In other words, you predict your failure with your thinking.
You don't have to tell yourself you'll hit it out of the park. Not at all, but you can. All you HAVE to do is tell yourself that you'll give it your all and whatever happens happens. Because at the end of your pretty darned good day, if you screw it up, you're going to learn from it. Then on the next pretty darned good day, you can dust yourself off and do even better with the experience and knowledge you gained the day before.
I'll leave you with one final thought. When you find yourself thinking or saying something something negative, practice reframing it positively.
Recently, a friend was telling me about growing up in a family with 3 brothers. He told me that his parents weren't expecting a baby and he was a “mistake”.
I said, “You weren't a mistake. You were a surprise.”
So from here on in, look out for those surprises. They're often blessings in disguise.
