Our mind is constantly in dialogue with itself about what it is observing in the outside world. These internal discussions stimulate a whole raft of feelings and emotions some positive and others negative. As part of our conditioning for success, it is vital that we listen very carefully to what we are saying to ourselves as this commentary can have a powerful effect on shaping the fortunes of a business venture.
The internal debate can influence your outlook, what you want and what you believe is possible – the perceptions that result from thoughts ultimately build a framework for how you perceive the world – for many of us this perception is reality. Used correctly you can use mind discussions to give you exactly what you want out of your entrepreneurial forays, it becomes an effective catalyst for attainment. However, negative self-talk will sabotage innovation, hold back the pursuit of new markets and inhibit creative ideas that deliver the edge. Think on!
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny
Put simply accelerated business performance starts with a winning and growth mindset. When you realise that the only thing you can truly control is the way you choose to think then the course for success is set.
Moving into the winning zone means you must be acutely aware of the words and thoughts that swirl around in your mind – you can quickly rewire your thought patterns by simply ignoring any negative self talk – if you think you can, you will give it a good shot – if you think you can’t, then you are most probably right!
Your internal self-talk has a great influence on the outcome of your business success; make it a habit to keep using positive phrases of thought. Positive thinking manifests into enthusiasm, it builds confidence and attracts circumstances and situations that contribute to personal and business growth.
