Until I started my business I didn’t do much thinking about mindset. I really just focused on educating myself but I didn’t do much in the way of evaluating and adjusting mentally. And now that I think back on it I realize this approach is much like just slinging spaghetti at a wall without waiting to see if it sticks.
For example, I graduated with a degree in psychology. And for the last 6 years, I thought it was a setback to my success. I couldn’t see how on earth it could work for me and my business. The only thing I could see was how it helped me learn to market better or design with users in mind. I never thought that it could help me with my business’ mission…to help women entrepreneurs build businesses they were proud of and be successful in those businesses.
This was a problem with my mindset. I could hear myself say things like I got a degree in psychology but I didn’t want to do anything with it so I changed my career path. Then I started noticing how I was helping counsel people with business issues and how I guide my clients to be set up for success. I was using skills I learned in my counseling courses to help get deep answers from clients and help focus them towards their goals.
This shift in my mindset has been a powerful change in my business. I incorporate more of the knowledge I gained while obtaining my degree into helping my clients and guide them in a direction that is going to be beneficial to them and their businesses.
I didn’t even realize my mindset was keeping me stuck. But now that I’ve broken through I can’t believe how long I was willing to let myself be stuck.
