Internal Success And Positivity For The Modern Entrepreneurs
Your state of being and external success is about your internal positivity. You have to be in love with who you are and allow it to translate over too what you are doing. If you keep looking at the competition and what others think of you, you will never be able to keep up both emotionally and in business. Your own self knowledge and self worth is the most positive aspect you can work on and spend your time on. When you create your own space you block out the bullsh*t that goes on in the outside world. Drastically saving you time from being pulled in all sorts of directions because of your concern of what others think.
I am certainly not suggesting that you walk around in a hazy fog all day long humming to yourself. Unfortunately most of us don't have the time or the capability to do this. As a society and culture we have evolved so discovering your internal success and space takes a little bit more work now a days. You have more access to knowledge on how to find that space like the article your reading now. You also have more access to technology that distracts you and more bills to pay to afford the technology. You want to be able to find your center now more than ever in a normal way especially so you can translate that over to business. How do you do this you might ask? Start writing down your thoughts, write every single day for five minutes. Organize what you want in life and what makes you happy. Writing will help you not only keep track of this but in gain it in your mind like its a bible.
Take it from me I used to be pulled all over the place because internally I was lost and ego driven. It translated to the business I was in, which was real estate. I started out as a broker and I wasn't sure of myself and it showed, I was always worried what does my client think of me or the other broker I was working with. It was always a game and even when I made money it felt like it wasn't enough, this is what ego does to you. It felt empty because I thought someone else out there was making more. So even the small successes I had starting out weren't enough. It stopped when I basically burned myself out, I was lost, confused and had no leads or prospects. I just sat there with nothing to lose and just let go. When I let go I knew internally what I wanted and finally saw just a clear picture and was able to let go of the worry and fear of what my surroundings thought of me. I was internally able to just be and two years later I have a successful business that includes a multi-million dollar real estate portfolio and investing in start-ups.
That's why business you need to have this positivity down because you need to focus on your content, your product and yourself. If you have a sh*t product no amount of financials and numbers will help you. If I put more money behind me at the time I was lost sure I would have lasted a little longer maybe gotten some better deals but it would have only delayed the inevitable. When you are true to yourself you will have a more in tune understanding of what you want and a focused mind especially in business. You can't mind what the competition is doing, mind what you are doing and focus on you.
Being a start up investor now working with a Family Office I get pitched a lot by entrepreneurs. You can always tell the ones that aren't being true to themselves because they are talking about everyone else. They are talking how bad everyone else is and that their product is exceptionally unique. Unfortunately no product is unique because everything has been invented you are just brining it to market in a different more efficient way for the modern consumer. When I see in tune entrepreneurs that know who they are and are internally happy it's like a spark. They are sharp and know the competition but know their product better.
When you are in that space of yours you will be in tune with positivity and most importantly what your CONSUMERS are saying. Your world will truly begin to reflect what's in your mind and lead you along that successful path. Without this positive thinking and being open too others you will allow your ego to take over which will shut you off from the rest of the world. Your ego is only telling you how good you are compared to the outside world. It won't allow you to be who you are or be who your company to be what it really is. Be in control of your own space and remain positive and you will always succeed.
So stay focused on you.
