One of the things I’ve come to understand about being an entrepreneur is that it’s like being on a rollercoaster ride in the dark… there are ups and downs. It’s exciting, but at the same time terrifying You never really know what’s coming next or how things are going to work out.
But nevertheless, I find that I’ve buckled myself in and I’m on this ride for the long haul.
However, at the beginning of my journey 10 years ago, I found myself really struggling with the dips. I started to question everything I was doing, I would doubt myself, I would talk myself out of testing new ideas, because somewhere along the way I lost my self-belief.
I battled so hard with myself for such a long time, until I finally figured out what I needed to do…
I needed to program my mind for success, not failure.
Instead of being my own worst enemy, I had to be my best friend. I had to believe in myself more than anyone else. I had to have the confidence in myself to do the things I needed to do in order to succeed. And it all started with changing what was going on inside of me.
Just like the most successful people in the world – the athletes, the multi-millionaire business owners, the best-selling authors – I had to condition myself for success.
When I made that decision my life changed.
So in this week’s video I want to share with you the TEDx talk I gave all about how I did this…
Building my businesses has been one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done. It requires so much from a person… courage, even when you’re petrified. Strength when you feel like giving up. Creativity, even when you feel like you’ve got nothing left to give. Hope, when everything seems impossible… I’m sure you know exactly what I mean.
But when we program ourselves for success, we can be unstoppable and live the lives we truly want.
