A business mindset centers around striving for success, thinking strategically, creating multiple streams of income, employing support for your business, and establishing intentional alliances, amongst a dozen other attributes.
You can argue that the culmination of all of these things is what makes entrepreneurship tough for so many people. You need tenacity to be an entrepreneur as well as a sheer bull-headedness to keep going even when all roads point to throwing in the towel.
The ups and downs of being in business for yourself can be exhausting. Setbacks, challenges and failures can cause that once self-assured temperament to become a fluctuating mindset.
Does this describe you?
Some days your hot other days you’re cold. You get a ton of stuff done one week and the next you’re wondering what the heck did you do?
Guess what? You’re human. It happens. It takes discipline to stay the course.
“It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through.” – Zig Ziglar
Unfortunately, when our mindset fluctuates we tend to NOT implement. We beat ourselves up for not moving forward as fast as we should. Our motivation suffers.
Alas, when our business mindset isn’t right, we have ebb and flows in our money-making potential.
Mindset fluctuations are a byproduct of a lack of systems. What do I mean by systems? In this case, I’m not talking about marketing automation or creating a workflow checklist.
I’m talking about something as simple as writing things down.
When you have a simple process in place like writing things down, you’ll find it easier to turn decisions into actions and actions into habits.
Watch the following live video I recorded where I discuss five tips for dealing with a fluctuating mindset to help you be more consistent in your business.
