For a long time, I thought a business was only successful when it reached a certain income goal or had hundreds of people working for it… BUT that is simply not the case. A successful business begins with running in the direction of what you fear. I know what y’all are thinking… this can’t be true but it’s the key to success!
There have been countless times when I stopped myself from doing something…
because I was fearful of the outcome. In corporate America, almost everything is predictable. So, moving into a space of unknown like entrepreneurship can really feel paralyzing…
Especially if you try to do it on your own.
One of the most shocking things I learned as a young entrepreneur was that most mindset hurdles are rooted in fear. The fear of disappointing others, of embarrassment, or of failure. It’s vital to make risks and fear boo, it’s what helps you be a successful and profitable business.
In order to create a successful business for the long haul, you have the right tools to create that business and keep it thriving.
The most powerful asset for your business is your mind.
Those fears and insecurities will stop you right in your tracks if you don’t have the right mindset to overcome imposter syndrome. We’ve talked about perfectionism and imposter syndrome a lot on the podcast and over on our Instagram, but truly understanding why we’re feeling those feelings and having the tools to break through them will help us become 5% businesses.
