The Winning Mindset!3 min read

Here we are, in 2021. I wish everyone a Happy New Year and let’s make 2021 our best year yet. As we begin to venture into this new year, let’s get really clear on what we want and how to achieve it. There are certain thoughts and things we need to possess in business and life to achieve our goals and dreams. It’s interesting to understand where people come from, the energy they have within that they bring to an endeavor, this energy will actually deliver on what they want, or maybe sometimes what they don’t want.

I believe there are four types of mindsets. The first mindset is the need mindset; I need to have this, I need a new client, I need to make more money, I need to be successful. If you go back about five or six weeks ago and read my blog on abundance and scarcity, need comes from a place of scarcity. If you’re thinking, “I need this,” you’re coming from scarcity, and you’re not going to achieve it, because the energy is absolutely wrong.

The next step is you want; you want more money, you want more success, you want a more empowered team, you want whatever it may be. We all want a lot of things, but there’s another level we need to go to, above the want, to actually open ourselves up to accept what we want, and that is we must be willing

We must be willing to take our guard down, to open up, to actually accept what we want, because if you’re not open, and your guard is up when the opportunity presents itself, you might not even recognize it. Also, to be willing, we must be able to be vulnerable. We must be able to go outside our comfort zone and not be fearful about what may or may not happen, or what people may or may not think. Take the guard down, open up, be willing to accept what comes your way, because there’s a lesson in everything that happens in our life.

The last step is reserved for only those who will truly receive success in their life, and the last step is you have to be committed. It’s all about commitment in yourself to take ownership and accountability, to do whatever it takes to get what you want. As a business coach, I like to coach people who are committed to doing what it takes, because when they’re committed, they’re open, they’re vulnerable, and they’re willing to accept it, they will be truly successful. I share with my clients, “If you’re open, committed, and you’re willing to do whatever it takes, achieving results is not a problem. You will get what you’re looking for as they usually do.”

I challenge all of you, as we venture into 2021 on this journey of capturing our goals and dreams, think of where you’re coming from, what energy you are producing. Are you in a need mindset, a want mindset, are you willing, and are you committed? When you’re committed, you will get what you want.  

I hope this has been valuable. I want to wish everybody an extremely abundant and successful 2021. Let’s create our goals, live our dreams, go out and take action, and let’s go accomplish all that we are committed to in 2021.
