When it comes to success, the main thing to focus on is mindset. When Lou talks to people he first tries to learn who they are, if we can help them, and if they want help. A common theme he finds is that most people don’t know what they want or where to start. The people who are successful have the mindset of they know what they want and are willing to do whatever it takes to get it. The people who are not ready are people who are afraid, don’t have any goals, and don’t know what they want. The fear mindset keeps then stuck where they are.
Invest in yourself. Investing in yourself is the number one thing you can do when it comes to changing your mindset. You can read books, attend seminars, watch videos of people much smarter than you in that area, and more. The worst thing that can happen from taking a risk or investing in yourself is that you end up in the same space you are now. The best thing that can happen is that you become successful. In truth, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
At some point in our lives someone beat out of us the ability to dream. When you can’t dream you can’t see a better future for yourself. It could be something as simple as saying “money doesn’t grow on trees” to “you can’t do it”. The first thing we do when someone gets accepted into our program is schedule them for a mindset call. This is one of the most important things we do because we are working on mindset right from the beginning.
It is possible to get clarity on your own but it is highly unlikely. If you have the “how to” but don’t know who you are and how to think in a positive mindset, it will never work. You need to know who are first. This comes back to investing in yourself. You need to take the steps to get clear on your vision before you start building a business.
Once you have fixed your mindset and are all committed to building your future, the next step is to find someone who can help you. Realizing that you need to find the right person to help grow your business will move you forward in your journey much faster.
