It's time to build the foundation of your business! There are two steps that have to happen before you can reach out to brands, pitch, or even grow on Instagram. Your whole business and life as an entrepreneur depend on building a solid foundation. Today's episode shares what changed my life as a blogger and how to implement that into your own life and business.
Mindset and self-talk are huge buzzwords right now, but why...because they are SO important!
You've heard it before: you get out what you put in...you attract what you put out. The direction of your life follows your thoughts. So where do you want to go?
To build a profitable business, we need to build a solid foundation. That foundation comes from YOU!
There are only two steps to start harnessing the power of positive mindset:
Think about the common phrases you say to yourself. Are they positive and encouraging or negative and critical? Then think about what triggers you to say these phrases? Looking at your Instagram feed? When you make a mistake? When you get rejected by a brand? When you look in the mirror?
The first step is reflection because we need to become aware of our current self-talk. This is the starting point of our business foundation.
Your current self-talk and mindset are deeply engrained and it will take time to retrain your brain to think positive, encouraging thoughts about yourself and your business! We are going to replace negative self-talk with positive words. We are going to write them down and say them OUT LOUD daily! You believe your own voice more than anyone else, so it is so important to say them out loud each day and memorize them!
