If you think luck has much to do with being a successful entrepreneur, you’ll be happy to know you can create that for yourself. All you need in order to wave the magic wand, is the ability to implement mindsets that lead you towards the path of success.
And that’s something we all have.
Practise overcoming self-doubt
No matter how many challenges you face, it’s often your own self-doubt that’s the biggest hurdle of all. Ask yourself how often you deliberately contribute to attacking your own confidence. This allows you to become aware of those non-productive thoughts of not being good enough, smart enough or capable enough of achieving your goals. You may not be able to control the thoughts from entering your mind, but you can certainly switch them for proactive solutions, as soon as they do.
Use tools such as meditation or positive-thinking apps to pull you out of panic.
Love your mistakes
It’s simply not possible to learn without making mistakes along the way. Knowing this, mistakes need to be embraced, in order to overcome the panic that often comes with them. There’s always a reason for a mistake and your task is to unravel that reason, learn from it and forge ahead from there. Doing so strengthens your skills in a way that’s only gained from experience, whether it feels good or bad at the time. Meditation, exercise and positive-thinking apps help pull you out of panic.
It’s easy to encourage a child to keep getting up when they fall over, but not so simple to do the same for yourself.
It’s easy to encourage a child to keep getting up when they fall over, but not so simple to do the same for yourself. Simplify this lesson, in order to realise that the stakes aren’t necessarily higher when you’re an adult. It’s always imperative to get up when you fall down, at all stages of life. Believe in what you’re offering, stay focused on your goal and push through criticism, temporary failures and challenges. The more you do it, the more resilient you’ll become.
Stay in improvement mode
There really is always room for improvement. The hurdle is often acknowledging this within yourself, in order to move forward. Constantly reflect on processes, procedures and goals, to clearly see what needs tweaking. Remember that, by using the same methods for the same problems, you might be getting in your own way towards solving them. Taking a step back to look at the bigger picture, often, keeps your mind focused on success-driven improvement.

Stop comparing yourself to others
The need to compare yourself to others is all in your mind. Like anything, the more you do this, the more power it gains. While it’s important to understand competitors and gain knowledge from experts, understand that doing so is a positive tool towards success. Banish those creeping thoughts that you’ll never reach that level or kick the goals that other people have.
You’re not trying to kick their goals, you’re on the way to kicking your own and no amount of comparison-induced fear will help. Empower yourself by acknowledging the value of your own journey, with mindsets that continually push you towards entrepreneurial and financial success.
