  1. Monitor your thoughts.

This might be difficult at first, and sometimes it can be challenging in the midst of a hectic day. However, consciously monitoring your thoughts is one of the first steps toward increasing your mind’s resiliency. As soon as something goes wrong, try not to go to that negative space of blame and frustration. Instead, allow yourself to recognize the set-back, but remind yourself that it is okay, and continue on with your day. By working on ways to enhance your attitude, you decrease your tendency to slip into negative thinking patterns. Remember that action follows thought.

  1. Choose your thoughts wisely.

Again, this might be difficult to accomplish if you are used to allowing in every thought that tries to make residence in your mind. Remember that whatever you think about yourself- including your abilities, your financial goals, and your inner belief regarding your ability to succeed, has the potential for manifesting itself in your life. If you truly want to be a successful business-person, then you must realize the importance of intentionally choosing your thoughts. When you feel yourself sliding into a negative thought pattern, which is easy to do, draw upon your inner voice. Work on reprogramming previous negative, defeatist thinking and shift toward new positive, powerful thinking, instead.

  1. Set goals.

Focus on your ability to set goals, and try to use your inner voice as a guide toward producing a positive state of mind. When your thoughts are clear and healthy, it allows you to move forward in the event of a set-back. It is much harder to re-group and forge onward when your current mindset is in a weakened state of negativity.

The more you believe that you can accomplish a goal, the more likely it is to happen. Think about your goals with enthusiasm and emotion, then let go and tell yourself that they will be accomplished.

  1. Create a strategy for anxiety.

Any kind of challenge has the potential for initiating a loss of control. It’s okay to feel a little bit concerned, but what you don’t want to do is become so consumed in your thoughts that you actually create a worse situation than you started with. If you feel a loss of control over your thoughts or emotions, work on disciplining your mind to stay clear of negative thoughts or the fearful “what-if” world of anxiety. Focus on what you have the ability to control in the present moment. Work on focusing your mind on solutions instead of problems.

  1. Work on your presence

We all know what it feels like to be in the presence of someone who is positive. Likewise, we also know what it feels like to be around someone who is negative. To reach your potential in the journey of becoming a business owner, it is important to be driven and detailed, but it’s equally important to be happy and enjoyable, as well. The success of your business is proportionately aligned with the degree of positive energy that you emit. Do you want to draw people in, or do you want to repel them? A positive mindset is capable of impacting those around you, and it can also increase business morale. You have the ability to affect others simply by the attitude you exude. Work on connecting with whatever your spiritual empowerment system is. This will both nurture your soul as well as your business. The deeper the connection you feel to the purpose of your business, the greater the likelihood of your experiencing a deeper life purpose expressed through your work.
