Do you remember Horton the Elephant and the Whos in Whoville? One voice kept the town on the seed from being boiled alive.
I spent yesterday in a workshop as step one to being an accredited mentor. I have been mentoring businesses for the last 20 years but the “endorsement” matters to some people. And during the day, one thing kept being mentioned.
People make everything work or not work. Nature can be destructive as we have seen this year with the earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes and other natural disasters. The sun can heat us up and help us feel sunny and bright. The cold can get us huddled around a fire. The rain will feed the seeds and keep us indoors. But for things to truly happen, we have to consciously, and sometimes unconsciously, take action.
So your mindset says whether you are stuck or unstuck.
Mindset measures your success.
Mindset forgives or holds a grudge.
Mindset allows you to see the beauty or the ugliness around you.
Mindset can lead to worry or it can help you plan and take action.
Mindset, how you see yourself, is the only thing that truly matters.
How do you keep a optimistic mindset:
- Remember that you are on this planet for a purpose and that whether you know your purpose or not, you will be given the time you need to fulfil that purpose.
- You matter, regardless of your circumstances. If grubs and ants and other insects have a place in this world then you very definitely do too. You only have to acknowledge, appreciate and accept the fact that you matter and can make a difference to someone.
- Your challenge is to develop the six inches between your ears. To read, to think, to question and to challenge the world around you and to listen to the answers but chose which answers you will internalize and act on.
In business, we all have the ability to succeed. It is how you value what you do first and foremost before others value what you do. And having a sense of your own worth, makes a difference to your results.
So today, remember you matter. You are important. No other person is like you and your mindset helps you or hinders you.
Your choice, your call, your power.
Business is people and People is business
