Eps 63: Develop Your Mindset to Leverage Your Entrepreneurial Strengths

It goes without saying that strategy is essential in business and in life, but did you know that your mindset is the single biggest defining factor for your success as an entrepreneur?

When you’re starting out in business, it’s already tough enough just to figure it all out, but your mindset is often the tipping point as to whether your business will reach its full potential.

If you want to succeed in business, it’s up to you as the leader to accelerate your own development by working on your mindset.

If you aren’t prepared to challenge your mindset then you won’t make it.

Sure it’s exhausting knowing that since mindset is key, it requires constant work, but it is the ONE thing you have the most control over, so you need to use it to your advantage!

Your brain employs a number of subconscious processes, which have to be surfaced if you want to become the best version of yourself. 

Part of that process is about facing your fears and as an entrepreneur, overcoming that instinctive ‘fight or flight’ mode.

Enter Joe Trodden, Mindset Coach, who’s guided over 300 entrepreneurs over the last 9 years to work on overcoming the many mindset challenges we entrepreneurs face, on a daily basis. 

They come to Joe to work on the next level of their strategy growth and to develop their mindset to become effective entrepreneurial leaders, and perhaps for his great Scottish accent!

Joe’s work is about linking the neuroscience of mindset development to practical actions that are designed to challenge the blockers we face, and enabling us entrepreneurs to work through defined stages of levelling ourselves up.

In this Episode You’ll Learn:

  • How to navigate through your existing mind blocks through each stage of your entrepreneurial journey 
  • How to face your fears and overcome fight or flight mode 
  • How to uncover and discover your superpower
  • How to improve your odds by making the right decisions

How to Stop Comparison-itis

We all do it. We all suffer from Comparison-itis, and in doing so, sabotage ourselves in the process.

Your aim in life should be to be the very best version of yourself. So why do we all consistently compare ourselves against others?

Why do we look at people who are 3, 5 or even 10 years ahead of us in business and in life and get completely dejected that ‘we’re not there yet’ or that we pale in comparison.

That’s like comparing yourself with Richard Branson and his current empire worth billions, instead of the Richard Branson in college trying to make a magazine come to life and getting loans from his Mum.

You will always come up ridiculously short.

And that’s just a game for losers to play, and you’re a winner, so I suggest you stop that now.

You can’t even begin to know what’s behind their journey, what it took for them to get to where they are now. But you can learn from them, and emulate the great things they do, so long as you don’t try to measure up against them.

Nothing compares to you. You just focus on being your best self.

It doesn’t help that we’re constantly bombarded with ‘overnight success’ stories and internet millionaires making money in their sleep.

I know it can seem like everybody is doing better at everything than you. But they’re not.

In fact often it’s far from the truth, they’re just good at marketing or spinning out the right stuff.

I’d like you to stop this destructive habit of comparison-itis and instead concentrate on where you’re at and what you’ve achieved.

That’s why in this podcast I’ve brought in the heavies, well the heavyweight expert in getting rid of limiting beliefs, stopping your comparison-itis syndrome and shifting your mindset.
