Start: Power of Positive Thinking

Believe in Your Success

A fundamental of becoming a successful entrepreneur is gaining control over thoughts. Our thoughts are truly the only thing we own. Thoughts lead to actions and actions lead to results. Where you’re at today is a direct result of the thoughts and actions of the past. Are you pleased with the outcome?

Consider changing the focus of what’s associated with pain and pleasure. Instead of, “It will take hard work to be financially free.” Think, “The time I invest now growing my business will pay off exponentially!” Or, consider what will happen if you don’t start a business?”

Be sure to visualize and feel the emotions of achieving desired goals as if they have already been reached. Every anxiety has an empowering opposite thought. All it takes is a little mental reframing. It’s not a lack of resources that hold us back it’s a lack of resourcefulness.
