Every time, entrepreneurs face a lot of challenges and failures, but what makes a good entrepreneur from the other is having the confidence, courage and the will to conquer every trial that comes along. It is important to train your mind to stay positive or optimistic so you can gain the resilience you need when situations get tough. According to a psychologist, humans tend to have a cognitive bias towards negativity and failures. This natural tendency is one way to face and acknowledge challenges and failures, leading to creation of better solutions. But most often than not, we let ourselves go overboard and we are eaten up by our negativity and failures. It is essential to positively train your mind and always think about the best view business by being open to change and negotiation despite the changing and fluctuating market, and equipping yourself with the determination, courage and confidence to drive successful outcomes.
In order to achieve your business goals and to become successful, you need not to only stay positive merely by thoughts but most especially taking appropriate steps or the right actions. Help train your mind to store positive events by writing down your blessings or happy experiences in a diary, notebook or your smartphone’s notepad app, and write those positive things not only about your business but also with your personal life, as a way of appreciation or gratitude. Repeating positive affirmations is also a key to training your mind to be optimistic because the more often a person hear a message, the belief becomes stronger. Make it a daily habit and utter it with full conviction every morning so you can develop the good habit. It is totally fine silently repeating your affirmations if you are self-conscious because what is more important is you’re able to internalize them so they become part of your system, rooted in the deepest core of your mind and heart. Choose three affirmations representing your goals and values such as “I can achieve my business goals, career goals, and all my life goals!”, “I can face all the trials and challenges that will come along my way!”, or “I can do this because I was born a winner!”. This is a good way to train yourself view negative events or problems positively, regarding them as stepping stone or turning point towards success.
Distance yourself from your negative thoughts by viewing them as separate from yourself. Now is the best time to challenge your negative thoughts by interpreting them differently. Be objective in every problem or challenge that comes along by determining the root cause of the problem and formulating concrete and effective strategies to resolve them or make it better the next time. You can use the internet as a great tool for researching inspiring stories of people who can be your great influence towards achieving optimism.
