As an entrepreneur, you have to be focused and have clarity on what you want this year if you want to reach your goals.

For some of you that will be really easy. You may already have the vision in your mind. You may know exactly whom you want to work with and how you want to work with them. You probably know what you would do with the money you would make: vacations you would take, people you would help and so on.

Truthfully, I find that most entrepreneurs don’t really have a clear vision of what they want – what success would mean to them. That’s the mindset piece that is keeping them stuck. If you don’t know what you want, you’ll never get it.
Let me share five of the more common negative beliefs that may keep you from setting goals.

1) You’re used to taking care of others. This has probably been your role most of your life, especially, if you are a married/parent. You have gotten use to putting everyone else before you and it’s very uncomfortable for you to think about what you want.

2) You feel guilty or selfish thinking about yourself and what you may need or want. Often, this is from your upbringing and it feels just plain bad to make yourself and your dreams #1.

3) “Why bother” is the thought going through your head. You’ve set goals in the past, been disappointed because you didn’t reach them and you just don’t want that to happen to you again.

4) You believe “success” is something that happens to others – not to you. So, you’re going to “play it safe” and not put yourself out there. You really believe the Universe is against you.

5) The thought of really letting lose and dreaming big scares the wits out of you. You’ve never been encouraged to dream big. You’ve played it small and stayed small in the past. It’s a scary proposition to believe you could have whatever you want.

If you’ve heard me speak before, you know I teach that your mindset is at least 90% responsible for your success (or failure). These beliefs (and there are lots more) can keep you stuck forever. Negative mindset will cause you to procrastinate and sabotage your efforts. Negative mindset will be your downfall no matter how hard you try, how hard you work or how smart you are.

On it’s own, negative mindset is stronger and will always win.

Make 2014 the year that you get rid of the negative thoughts, beliefs and stories that are keeping you stuck. Isn’t it time for you to reach your goals?

Be Brilliant,
