Mar 27, 2019

“The mindset layer is one of the most important... At the end of the day, if your mindset isn’t optimized, you can’t provide the best service because you can’t show up in the best way for your business and your clients.”  - Timothy Dick (2:57)

Maximize your Business by Minimizing Stress

In our culture today, entrepreneurship has become synonymous with stress. It is accepted that to “make it” as a business owner you’ll have to work extremely hard, sometimes at the expense of your health and relationships. Many entrepreneurs feel guilty if they don’t work as hard as their peers, even if they are getting good results. But is this mindset really productive? Does pushing yourself to the edge ultimately help you create a business that brings you fulfillment, and is it more profitable long-term?

We are continually evolving as entrepreneurs and human beings. We need to periodically assess whether or not our business is moving in a direction that is in alignment with personal growth. Ignoring that aspect of self will eventually lead to burn-out. This is the reason why many entrepreneurs reach a stage where they may have achieved financial success but remain unfulfilled. They may think that they’re depressed, but in reality, they haven’t set clear boundaries with their clients, team members, or even themselves, and they’re just overwhelmed.

“If you have residual stress and you put out thoughts of frustration, doubt, and fear, you won’t attract the things you really want.” - Malorie Nicole (23:59 - 24:22)

Continual stress can result in a negative mindset that is harmful to your business, your health, and overall well-being. Often long-term stress will create an internal narrative that no matter how hard you try, you’ll never be able to live up to your own expectations. Such limiting beliefs will affect business operation and success.

Mindset and Business Performance are Closely Connected

People often dismiss the power of mindset and energy and its responsibility for abundance or lack in a business. It is seen as a non-scientific metaphysical concept, and many assume that success is found in intentional focus on the mechanical aspects of a business like ad campaigns, client retention, etc.

However, energy is all around us. Whether we realize it or not, the vibration that we put out interacts with the universe, and it is responsible for the thoughts, people, and events that we attract into our lives. When you’re stressed, you activate the part of your nervous system that is known as the fight-or-flight mode. In this state, the vibration you put out is coming from a place of frustration and doubt, not from abundance and creativity, and you’ll attract results accordingly. Your mindset has a direct effect on how you perform as an entrepreneur, how you serve your clients, and ultimately your profitability.

“In our culture, we have normalized stress, and we’ve done it in a way that is really harmful to our longevity what we are trying to create.” - Malorie Nicole (32:45 - 33:01)  

The stories we tell ourselves shape our beliefs and inform our actions. Being in a perpetual state of stress creates negative stories. Over time, these stories can result in a mindset that will block new opportunities from showing up. Removing those mental blocks, either on your own or with the help of a coach, will allow you to grow your business, and more importantly find fulfillment at the same time. It’s time to get out of your own way, change your story, and change your life.
