Your prosperity is sure when you know what tenets to put to work. Being part of the big picture of thinking up solution to problems, and building a positive change is first the chief mindset for your success.
Don’t get into the thinking that anyone owes you something. To participate in the market or economy, you have to first develop the mindset of what you can do for people and how you can serve them happier at a profit. Click To Tweet
The reason most women particularly graduates live a wasted life waiting for a job to rescue them from their idleness is that this mind is not in them. Nurturing such mindset opens you up to new ideas on how to start your own success story. Start your own success journey with the following mindsets:
1. Relationships are your Number One Assets
I will give you a scenario. A group of five married friends love to shop. Their husbands have given them good money to take themselves out. They decided to go shopping then I thought, one of them could have been the funnel that collected the money. Four of them could have bought from one of them such things as beauty products, cosmetics and human hair if one of them thought differently to be a beauti-prenuer.
What happens if each one of them bought something from each one? They are happier! In other words, five of them could have been into a different business that benefits one another’s pocket!
Dear woman, it is time to think of solving problems for your fellow woman. Most businesses started by selling to family members and friends.
Begin to see the better way of solving problems for people.
People want to do the following:
- Eat good food
- Look good
- Wear fine clothing
- Smell nice
- Have fun
- Make money
Start by identifying with one or two of these drives. There are people in your life who have at least a need for one of the various categories listed.
What can you do for those you know before moving to those you don’t know?
Can you give them what they want at a profit?
2. Your Abilities and Skills Are Employable
Having the understanding that your employability starts with you changes how you see your time, abilities and resources.
Would you employ YOU? If yes, why not employ yourself gainfully? Gurl, you have got mastery, abilities, skills, knowledge and potentials more than you are conscious of. Elevate your consciousness! Employ these resources and turn them to riches. What you have is the first thing to begin with to start your journey of success. The moment you maintain a mindset that what you need is outside of you, then you will wait forever to get started as an entrepreneur.
Every woman has something to offer. Next time you look at the mirror to pimp up your face, smile at the gurl you see in the mirror because she’s got something special within that she can capitalize on. Success continues with identifying and turning your abilities to marketable products and services that meet people’s needs.
Look closely and far, where can you see a gap to be filled? Find it and fill it. You are not an accident where you are. Something big can start because of your input right from where you are. If only you can capitalize on your resources and connect them to the gap that needs to be filled.
Every day in every way there is a gap to be filled. Only people with problem-solving mindsets can see it. They give a different meaning to the terms some people call crises.
If you want to start doing big things as a budding entrepreneur, you must learn to welcome problems. You’ve got what it takes to tame anything that poses itself as a challenge. You just must have a greater sense of consciousness that you can and do have what it takes to make a difference.
3. Start Now and Develop a Growth Mindset
If you naturally love singing, dancing, writing, teaching, designing e.t.c employ the ability or set of abilities. For instance, Landini could make hair very well, she employed that ability, gave it a business name and off she goes to work every day employing people instead of waiting to be employed. She didn’t start by owning a shop as she thought it would erode her profit at initial stage. She started with home services for friends and family and made profits enough to help her plan big for the future. Today, Landini owns chains of beauty stores. Did she start small? Yes! Did she grow? Yes? Is she training and employing more hands? Yes!
Ultimately, you do not need to wait long to be gainfully employed through your certificate and many qualifications. Look within and engage your abilities. If you are not a graduate, it doesn’t make any difference. Just look within. Find something to excel at. Educate your skills and keep grinding until you succeed.
4. Action Habits and Develop Speed
One of the critical success factors required as an entrepreneur is the habit of taking massive action and employing speed to get things done quickly.
In business, you don’t delay in taking action or you will have your competitor to outsmart you for being slow.
5. Spur up collaborations
Acquire more friends. Serve more people.
Only ignorant people keep enemies. Your seeming enemy is your prospective customer.
For successful women, relationship is everything.
The possibility a relationship can bring to you if harnessed cannot be quantified. You have to develop foresight to understand that there are potentials in each person you meet. Your work as an entrepreneur is to seek that out.
Collaborate don’t compete. It is collaboration that helps you reach even further where you alone cannot get to.
6. Take advantage of emerging technologies
Every day there are new applications, templates and business model that can help your business and aid your productivity. Harness them! You cannot benefit from what you have not taken advantage of.
Try these emerging technologies especially those that make your life easy, increase your efficiency and productivity level. Though everything has advantages and disadvantages. Stick to the emerging technology that can help your business thrive. Keep your mind open to new things. See how they can help you get what you want to achieve.
7. Love what You Do
There is nothing as frustrating as investing your time on what you don’t really enjoy. Imagine over 50% of your time with someone you don’t love or have a feeling for. Just think about the fact that you have even no positive emotion towards the person. That’s highly suicidal. Can you continue like that? Not for long, you would kick the unlucky fellow out of your life.
Our creativity thrives in the things we have abundant love for. Businesses are things that have intelligence. If you love your business and what you do at all, it will show in your approaches and results and ultimately in your health. You will create time for it. You will nurture it and give it all it takes to grow, expand and blossom.
Invest time into what you are really absorbed and fascinated about. Anything you love engages all of your being when you are at it! That is the source of creativity and flow.
8. Develop Financial literacy
This is where I laugh at my fellow gurls who have been running away from figures all their lives. If you really want to be successful at your business, you must understand basic financial literacy to start with. Not having it at all is like a stroll in the dark. You won’t be able to tell when you are making profit or losses especially if you cannot distinguish between what your assets and liabilities are.
Start today to learn few things about finance and how to apply it in your business.
