One thing I know for sure: if you have a bad attitude you will NOT be successful. In fact, it is scientifically proven that the mind cannot hold two thoughts at the same time. So if you are thinking positively and have your mind geared toward success, nothing will be able to hold you back. The opposite is also true.
If you have a shitty mindset and a bad attitude, nothing you do will work.
The naked truth is that for you to get anything out of the information available on Small Business Promote, you must get your mind right first. Of course, none of us has a positive mindset every single minute of the day. That would make us Forrest Gump. But as the saying goes, you can have a bad day, just don't unpack and live there. Creating success begins with a positive mindset which produces the emotions of confidence, light, joy, and determination.
I have had quite a few bad things happen in my life.Growing up in an alcoholic, dysfunctional home, the oldest and a stepchild, along with being poor, could have sent me on a path of totally worthlessness. There are a lot of people that do nothing with their lives, but they are ok with that because they have a bad childhood as an excuse to fall back on.
Well, I call that horseshit. We create the life we want and if we are determined to be successful and happy, nothing or no one can stop us. It all comes down to what goes on between our ears.
For decades I have been a follower of personal development leaders such as Wayne Dyer, Dr. Phil, and Ram Dass. Some of my friends might say I am 'out there," but if out there is feeling good and myself and being motivated to live the best life I can, well out there is where I wanna stay.
If you wanna get "out there" with me, or just need some advice and guidance on staying positive, I suggest the following resources:
This first suggestion is for those of you who feel you have a good mindset but lack confidence. I took this course last year and it made me evaluate everything I had every heard about how to build and keep self-confidence. I strongly suggest if you recognize yourself as someone needing to boost their confidence, take this course. Confident Trigger.
My second suggestion is for those of you who really want to dig in and change or improve your mindset. I read this book for the first time 20 years ago and it actually did change my life, no joke. My son is on a path of enlightenment and he just started reading it and loves it!
Another suggestion for now is a website I adore called Loner Wolf. I subscribe to their newsletter and they send some of the most dynamic and unique articles. You would do yourself a favor by joining and it cost nothing but your time.
Lastly for now, a great way to stay positive and motivated on a regular basis is to surround yourself with people who are on the same path. It really is true, you ARE the company you keep. In the virtual world, you can start out this journey by joining positive Facebook groups like this one, or even my own Facebook page, because I am always sharing motivational and funny things i find in my feed.
Hopefully this information will help you get started on your path toward being successful in your small business your life, as you learn how to promote your small business online effectively.
To help you even more with keeping a mindset of success, take a few minutes to check out this awesome way to make that happen. I swear by it myself.
