Hey Cleaning Nation! We are back here today with the amazing Tracey Thompson. She is a rockstar mindset coach and all of Cleaning Nation loves her! She is going to share how to rewire your mindset for success. I handle all of the tactical stuff for our clients but Tracey actually helps them do it by changing their mindset around success and tasks.
A lot of people will come to us saying that they know they should be doing ____ but they don’t know the skills, they have tried it before, etc. These are really excuses. The biggest excuse we get is “my situation is different”. Oftentimes people want to get better results but don’t want to do what it takes to get there. What Tracy does is rewire their mindset from being the “old them” to the “new them”. Your old experiences and mindset will hold you back from moving toward success.
We have two phrases around here. The first one is what we call the “monkey mind” which is the old self, stories, and limitations. The second is the “Millionaire Mind” which is when you realize that you are the only one that can change things. Once you change to the “Millionaire Mindset” you stop asking yourself disimpowering questions like “Why am I so stupid?”. Instead, you start asking questions like“What do I need to do to change my situation?”. Then we would imagine someone we want to be and ask what characteristics we need to become that person.
When you find yourself giving a million excuses, one of the best ways to fight this is to picture yourself as successful. From that place we can ask “What can I do to get there?” instead of saying “I can’t”. As soon as we say “I can’t” we shut down. So asking yourself “How can I do this?” instead of “I can’t do this” will make a HUGE difference.
