If you don’t like the financial results in your small business up to this point then chances are your money mindset is a factor. Money mindset is your ideas, beliefs and thought patterns around making and having money in your life.

If you have an easy time making sales and creating a six figure plus business, you most likely have a highly prosperous mindset. That means as an entrepreneur you are willing to think bigger and tackle the more challenging growth activities in your business.

But if someone tends to grapple with profitability, never has enough cash in the bank and feels frustrated by the process of marketing or sales, then that’s usually a sign of a struggle mindset.

On episode 107 of Amplify Your Success Podcast learn seven powerful prosperity mindsets designed to help you CRUSH IT this year in your money game.

Be sure to join the conversation in the Amplify Your Success Community and share your input there too.

 

Key Takeaways

  • Why money mindset is just as critical to your success as having a solid marketing strategy
  • How important commitment is since mindset alone is not enough to override distractions and common fears
  • One new mindset you MUST develop if you tend to procrastinate marketing or sales activities in your small business.
  • The difference between playing to win…and playing not to lose…when it comes to making effective growth decisions
  • The most important mindset shift a six or seven figure business owner needs, especially if they spend as much as they make!

What you think and talk about dictates how far you can grow. Think of it like this, “ your attitude dictates how HIGH your success can travel, like a balloon. Positivity is light, negativy is an anchor.

If you think small, you’ll achieve small.

If you see problems with a “why is this happning to me” attitude, you’ll feel constricted. You’ll feel like a victim. Its hard to want to grow and expand when weighed down by problems. But If you see opportunities, you’ll feel resourceful and inspired to pursue them.

If you see limits, you’ll stop. If yo use limitlessness, you’ll keep moving.

If you see failure, you’ll want to stop making mistakes. If you see learning, you’ll keep growing.

Having a positive, “can do” attitude will take you much farther than capability alone

To celebrate the 100th episode of Amplify Your Success Podcast, I’ll share seven lessons I learned, many of which were from epic failures and embarrassing mistakes, that have helped my become more successful as a business coach and entrepreneur.

Have you ever had a goal that you talked about, dreamed about, but just could never get out of the starting gate? Or maybe you started towards that goal but then things got a bit challenging, and the goal just kind of fell away?

There’s a significant difference between being committed to a goal or just being interested in it. Interested means you’ll do JUST ENOUGH not to fail but never enough to actually succeed.

In episode 93 of Amplify Your Success Podcast I’m going through the five signs you are really committed to a bold vision (or just interested!) Knowing the difference could end up saving you a TON of disappointment and keep you from wasting time and money on a bright, shiny idea!

Be sure to join the conversation in the Amplify Your Success Community about what works for you!

Key Takeaways

  • Why your self-talk is a huge sign of your commitment level.
  • How excuses and “never having enough time” factor into someone’s commitment level.
  • The role your comfort zone plays in your ability to achieve goals you’ve never done before.
  • Can being proactive be a sign you are going to achieve a goal? Yep. I’ll tell you how proactive vs. reactive is so vital to success.
  • What you should do if you are a “how” person (meaning you need to know how before you jump in.)
  • Why if you have a bold goal, you MUST pursue it
