What do you really want? (Chapter One of The “Outside the Box” Entrepreneur)

A few years ago I developed a group coaching program called Business Mindset Mastery. It was designed for new to intermediate business owners who hadn’t fully embodied the core traits of successful entrepreneurs. You are already well aware that there is a significant difference between an entrepreneurial mindset and an employee mentality. And for most business owners, there is a process that must be gone through to develop those mindset traits.

The very first concept I addressed with my students in that program begins with this question: What do you really want? Followed by an honest assessment of why?

Most of us think we know what we want and why. But I challenge you, be very honest with yourself. Do you really know what you want in your life and business? Why do you believe you want it?

From the time we are born (some say even while in utero) we are absorbing, learning and forming conclusions about life from people around us. We begin to take on certain points of view about what success is. And most people are creating their lives based on other people’s beliefs about what you should or should not do – on what other people believe success is.

Pause to answer the following questions:

♦ What do you believe success is?
♦ Where did those beliefs come from?
♦ Does your version of what success is align with what you really, truly, want for your life?

Chances are, if you have any degree of un-fulfillment in your life and/or business, your current beliefs are not completely aligned with what you truly want to experience in your life.

The first step is to be honest about what you want and make a decision to have it. The second step is to get aligned and take action to create it.

More to come…
