What does it take to be brilliant?
Have you ever seen a little prodigy – perhaps playing a piano in a symphony orchestra? He or she is five or even as little as four. Seeing them perform is at such a masterful level is hard to believe. How can a child have the ability to do that? Our history is full of people who are like that. How can it be that some have all things going for them at such an early age? What makes that person (at five-years-old) so brilliant?
Actually, we are all that brilliant. Every one of us has had high achievements in our lives. It’s those gold medal performances and standing ovations that I’m referring to. It’s all the social conditioning and the way we are mentally groomed that finally slows us down. You see, the little five-year-old performs naturally. They perform so well because their parents and teachers simply forgot to tell them that they couldn’t do that. So, that little five-year-old child just did what came naturally and nobody stopped them. They just performed naturally without limitations and that was it.
Did they practice? Yes – for sure.
Did they learn it five times faster than any of the other kids? Probably.
Did they always have a natural inclination for it? Yes – absolutely!
Did their parents and teachers let them do it? Yes.
Did they tell them that they were brilliant? Of course, they did.
They must have given them all the applause and re-enforcement. But more importantly, they never stopped them from doing what was natural. That was the key to their brilliance.
Every one of us has that ability to do exactly what your heart desires. Perhaps your hearts desire is your next gold level performance. It’s time to break through that ceiling and think about how that would feel.
What’s stopping you from achieving success?
The only thing that stops every single of us from reaching our full potential is our mindset. It’s not our up bringing, our current situation, or the economy. Although these may have some influence, our success is the product of what we think and how we act. The farthest step we have to take is within us. It’s the seven inches between our ears – typically called the brain. Would it surprise you to learn that every day we get the opportunity to try and reach our full potential? Embrace the fact that you are already preprogrammed for success. It’s already inside you. What you don’t know now is the thing that is holding you back. That is the key. If we knew what was stopping us from achieving great things, that would be our first step. Then we could create a blueprint to achieve our natural greatness. Therefore, there’s not one of us that couldn’t double our business this year.
Breakout of mindsets that stop your success
We see it all the time in mindset coaching. These are the mindsets that slow or stop your success in business. What you need is a new way to think. To do that we need a way to change our current success thinking. We call it is a mindset breakout. We help small business owners discover what is holding them back, and we tackle it. Then we help them change their thinking to allow more success in their life. It can be complicated, but it’s doable. Why? There are many areas that could be holding you back and need to be examined. When we find out what is truly holding you back, we can set up a plan to make the changes to your thinking. We help you to learn to navigate through the changes. Then, you will have a mindset breakout to a new level of success! It’s that simple.
What does a mindset look like?
Mindset breakouts look like this. You’re travelling along with some success (been doing it for years) but not able to really hit your dream. Even though you can see your dreams, they seem out of reach. Then you change a few thoughts, and it happens – you skyrocket up! That is a mindset breakout. Sometimes people see themselves at a high level, but they are preforming at a much lower one. It’s painful and difficult. And there’s only one thing that is holding them back from getting to where they want to be – their mindset. They know that they are supposed to be up there at top level. They know that they can do it – but there’s that one thing that’s sabotaging them. When we break through that, they will be there in a heartbeat. Nothing will be able to stop them because they are there in their mind.
We continue to keep working on little changes all the way through, and somewhere between nine and 18 months, things just take off. That is when we find out what it takes to break that mould of what’s holding you back.
What happens when we find something that doesn’t work. What do we do with it? Throw it away. Mindset coaches will guide you to program your mind for success at a higher level. First, we find your success ability limit. Then we find out what is slowing you down. Whether that’s something that you are thinking or doing. That gives us the ingredients that we need to create a plan to improve your thinking. Sometimes people do reactive things because they are feeling triggering all the time. If this shows up, we need to find the root of the trigger and prevent it from happening. No matter how they are self-sabotaging we will find a way to overcome it. When you have that mindset break through, wow it’s stimulating! Then it’s clear sailing until you hit the next little ripple that holds you back. And we’ll help you conquer that too. That’s what this is all about.
What have we learned as small business coaches about mindset
We have coached hundreds of clients all looking for the answer to this question: “How can I achieve success in business”?
Here are a few things we have learned along the way.
• Success is a process not a destination.
• Our past training, schooling and upbringing dictates our belief of our Success Path
• The principles of success are universal. The application is personal.
• The price of success is non-negotiable, but it doesn’t have to be so hard.
• Success has a pattern and is predictable. You just need to know what the pattern is.
• Your success pattern is reproducible. A big success is made up of a small success reproduced over and over.
So, what’s holding you back?
